We’re celebrating the second Netlabel Day again on 14th July with some more brand new tracks. Here’s an exclusive preview…
For our latest release, available today, Aerologic joins with Notch to present an epic house track with a throbbing bouncy bassline, uplifting pads and haunting piano mid section, reaching a crescendo with acidic stabs, soaring strings and a bleepy trance riff. Psychadelik Pedestrian also provides a chillout mix which combines the original pads and melodies with a half speed, chilled groove. Download them now free of charge from our release page!
Marc Burt’s 2002 debut track Elements gets an update in this release with two new remixes. Psychadelik Pedestrian’s chillout mix blends the recognisable echoing chords and haunting piano from the original and adds downtempo, chilled rhythms and analogue synth sounds. Marc Burt and JMD remix builds up with the original piano and chords, before breaking into a trance anthem with big arpeggios and pumping beats. Grab them from our release page today!
Today we’ve released the second set of remix samples from Psychadelik Pedestrian’s Fifteen LP – this time for Pulse, an electro breaks track first featured on Toucan Music’s Netlabel Day 2015 EP. Head on over to CCMixter to download them: http://ccmixter.org/files/psychadelik_pedestrian/53685.
Blastculture and Notch return with three new remixes of tracks taken from the Psychadelik Pedestrian LP Fifteen. With two new remixes, Blastculture opts for different styles: Sergio’s Last Remix of Sleep Tight launches into a rhythmic house workout with smooth dancefloor grooves while his Steady State Remix of Hit The Deck is a faster track with a darker feel, with hard house and techno influences. Notch concludes the release with a house remix of Sleep Tight, keeping the original keyboard riffs and adding smooth electronic beats, crisp rhythmic hi-hats and a subtle yet punchy organ riff. All remixes are available to download free of charge in high quality MP3 format. Find out more on our release page.
Starting this week, we’re making samples available for several tracks from the latest Psychadelik Pedestrian album, Fifteen. First up are stems from the opening track, Into The Ether, a haunting atmospheric electronic piece which begins with a chilled electronic piano riff and lush pads, building into a darker brooding dubstep-influenced electronica. The samples can be used in any way you like – you can do a full remix of the track or use them in your own works. Under a Creative Commons BY-NC licence, you can also share anything you make using the samples as long as you don’t make a profit commercially. Head on over to CCMixter to download the samples.
For our March release, Notch captures that deep house vibe with two new original tracks. Lose You features an infectious house riff with crisp house rhythms and deep sub-bass, interspersed with female vocal snippets. Spirals builds with a filtered old school piano riff and large throbbing bassline, before breaking into a mellow house groove with pads and a squiggly trance riff. As usual both tracks are available as free downloads in high quality full length MP3 format – download them from our release page.
In case you haven’t discovered our YouTube channel yet, head on over to go on a Voyage To Pluto in our first animated video! Pluto was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh on this day back in 1930, and was seen in close proximity for the first time last summer by NASA’s New Horizons mission. To celebrate the occasion we released new mixes of Voyage To Pluto, which can be downloaded free right here at Toucan Music!
Our February release is out today, and just in time for Valentine’s we have two soulful disco grooves to get you in the mood! Phish Funk are back with their first original release in five years and have effortlessly blended classic disco and house in this double tracker. As always, both tunes are free to download and are licensed under Creative Commons for you to use in your DJ sets, videos and more. Find out more and pick up those downloads on our release page.
