Returning with his trademark tech-house sound, the focus is on the rhythm as Blastculture blends acid bass with pounding house beats, drum rolls, intricate rhythmic clicks and shuffled hi-hats in Kill The Drummers. On an old skool tip, the JD Breakbeat remix begins with drum machine beats and glitchy acid redux bass, and breaks down into crunchy, lo-fi breaks and a huge siren riff: one to get the ravers on the floor.
Returning with two progressive house cuts, Aerologic features in our December 2016 release with his first solo release in over a year. Breathless builds up with a growling dark bass and breaks down into a melody featuring a haunting piano riff and uplifting warm synth chords, set over pumping electronic beats. Sangria evokes the summer sun and party nights with infectious happy piano chords and upbeat synth arpeggios playing a latin flavoured melody. Both tracks are free to download and use under a Creative Commons licence in true Toucan tradition.
Our November 2016 EP features two new future house tracks from Notch. Combining a bouncy bassline, catchy vocal sample, and rhythmic house grooves, Do U Like also features old skool piano and strings with crisp beats. Listen To The Rhythm is a hypnotic house workout with reverberating vocals, organ stabs and deep sub bass. Both tracks are free to download under a Creative Commons licence for use in your DJ sets and online videos.
Marc Burt returns bringing two new progressive trance tracks with a classic twist. Poles Apart features a twirling catchy riff set to a background of echoing chords and crisp electronic rhythms, combining the classic trance sound with modern progressive beats. Wheels In Motion features a shuffling, garage style rhythm, warm trance chord riffs and a deep electronic bassline creating haunting melodies weaving in and out of the track. Both tracks are available to download free of charge and are released under a Creative Commons licence for reuse in your DJ sets, videos and more.
Blastculture explores both energetic minimal and mellow house with two new tracks on this EP. Pumping up the tempo, Set Yourself On Fire features a relentless rhythm track with an energetic hi-hat pattern, hits, stabs and effects. By contrast, Moving The Ocean is a mellow house track with an infectious female vocal sample, smooth pads and a solid rhythmic groove. The Aerologic remix turns the track into an uplifting trance anthem with melodic synth sounds and and uplifting melody.
Beat Doctor returns after five years with three new electro house tracks released for Netlabel Day 2016. Shot In The Dark features a catchy, uplifting bass riff, trance-style arpeggios and a catchy spoken vocal sample. House and garage artist Notch has prepared the final mix for this track, adding upfront house beats to the mix. Remote Control System has a darker, club-oriented flavour, with a raw acidic bassline and an echoing spoken vocal sample bouncing off crisp house rhythms. To complete the EP, Clockwatchers is a more agressive, rave-influenced track with heavy synth stabs and a driving bassline. In true Toucan tradition, all tracks are freely available to download and reuse under a Creative Commons licence.
Psychadelik Pedestrian follows up his recent LP, Fifteen, with three new tracks in a slightly different style. Replacing the chilled vibes of Fifteen with a harder, electronic sound on this EP. Starting with warm yet relaxing pads and piano, Unprovoked Attack launches unexpectedly into heavy trip-hop beats, distorted guitar-esque synths, and floor-shaking bass, while keeping an uplifting melody in traditional Pedestrian style. Drones is a faster, more minimal outing with relentless tribal rhythms driving deep pitchbending sub-bass interspersed with a haunting piano riff. Naked Flames completes the EP with a more melodic, pop-influenced track, again with echoing distorted electric synths and deep, rumbling bass. All three tracks are available under a Creative Commons licence, free for re-use in your own DJ sets, videos and podcasts.
Aerologic and Notch join forces to produce a slowly building epic house track. Beginning with a kick drum, deep bouncy house bass and tight TR-909 style claps, the track slowly builds with lush melodic pads, before dropping into a haunting piano section and then launching into distorted acidic stabs and building up with pads and synths to bring the track to a crescendo. Psychadelik Pedestrian's chillout mix takes the melodic pads and piano from the track, adding downtempo beats and grooves.
In this EP, Marc Burt revisits his first track Elements, originally produced back in 2002, and brings it up to date. Psychadelik Pedestrian's chillout mix keeps the original gated synth chords and pianos, adding half speed, chilled beats, haunting strings and extended analogue synth riffs. Marc's remix with Aerologic retains the recognisable gated synth and uplifting piano from the original track, adds crisp contemporary beats and launches into a huge, arpeggiated trance riff, adding a sense of energy to the track to get those hands up in the air! Also included is JMD's 2004 hard trance remix, featuring plenty of stuttering, gated synths and pounding trance beats.
Blastculture and Notch return with three new remixes of tracks taken from the Psychadelik Pedestrian LP Fifteen. Starting with atmospheric pads and bringing in tribal rhythms, Sergio's Last Remix of Sleep Tight launches into a rhythmic house workout, combining the hard edged distorted bass of the original with smooth dancefloor grooves. The Steady State Remix of Hit The Deck is a faster track with a darker feel, with hard house and techno influences. The remix repitches the original bassline and adds Blastculture's trademark bleepy effects. Notch concludes the release with a house remix of Sleep Tight, keeping the original melancholy keyboard riffs and adding smooth electronic beats, crisp rhythmic hi-hats and a subtle yet punchy organ riff. The remix kicks into the original's harder, gabber influenced middle section before closing with more house rhythms towards the end.
