We are proud to announce that Invisible Minds has been signed to the legendary Moshi Moshi Records.
The London based songwriter, musician and producer, whose identity is yet to be revealed, has been making major waves in recent months. His late 2017 release ‘Yo Mae Leh’ and his early 2018 release ’The Cut Girl’ have both received radio recognition from BBC Radio 6, both getting playlisted across their daytime shows.
Moshi Moshi Records has released many talented artists over the years, including the likes of; Hot Chip, Florence + Machine, Friendly Fires, Hercules & Love Affair, Au Revoir Simone and now they have Invisible Minds to add to the list!
Throwing Snow’s Ross Tones started 2018 with a bang, releasing his EP ‘Trebucher’ on Houndstooth. He shows no sign of slowing, with his most recent club focused 2 track EP, ‘Simmer/Subtitles’, also on Houndstooth.
Simmer: “This is the track I’ve always wanted to write. It combines many of my musical loves in one, it feels like jungle but at 125bpm. The main synth sound (the MFB Dominion Club) moves from a sub bass through to a 303 like acid work out and back again.”
Subtitles: “The bass line is an ode to Teebee vs Future Prophecy’s Dimensional Entity which came out on Subtitles, hence the name. I used a bowed lid sample recorded by Will Plowman to tie the two tracks together with the same ambience.”
The EP is the second two tracker in a string of releases that is set to cumulate on a special extended vinyl release in the Summer – something to look forward to!
Neue Grafik, a long-term friend of Rhythm Section, has returned to the label and this time is providing his most fully realised offering.
The record begins with the lysergic ebbs and flows of “Innvervision” where our own Wayne Snow has graced the track with sublime and sultry vocals, marking it as a great collaboration. The tracks take cues from the broken beat sound of London while paying homage to the Parisian house dance scene.
Largely sample based, but also employing much more live instrumentation than ever before, Neue Grafik’s music is informed by movement and in turn offers so much for Dancers to respond to.
Fur Coat are certainly no strangers to Watergate Records having released their ‘Intersteller’ EP with them back in 2016. They return to Watergate to release their latest 2 track EP ‘Immersion’.
“Immersion” kicks off with an agile kick drum setting the stage for rapid fire percussion and an overwhelmingly satisfying ascending organ line that could be the trademark of any sci-fi film score. Add a few shudders of glimmering atmospherics and it’s a trek into the cosmic realm of Techno where space and time cease to exist.
Flipping sides the duo dive deeper into the infinite expanse with “Inner Circle” where lush textures canvas a mesmerizing groove and hypnotic spirals of gratifying repetitive sonics resulting in a fiercely energetic yet undeniably euphoric expedition under the club lights. Embracing the tools and mechanics that have made their sound unique and successful for so long,
Fur Coat seems to have delivered their most mature and polished EP to date with their ‘Immersion’ EP where stunning spacial details and a precise attention to detail have embodied the age old saying, “less is more”. Immerse yourself.
The EP has already gained popularity on the DJ circuit and is supported by the likes of Tale of Us, Dubfire, Pan-Pot, Slam, Scuba, Rampa, Mind Against, Joseph Capriati and many more.
Kicking off 2018 in a big way, we are thrilled to announce Throwing Snow will be joining the roster.
Throwing Snow (Ross Tones) has been on our radar for quite a while now through his acclaimed EPs, singles, his debut album ‘Mosiac’ in 2014 and ‘Axoim’ in 2016, which were released on Houndstooth.
Along with a brilliant back catalogue of music Tones’ also performs a captivating live set, which has featured on Boiler Room, Red Bull Music Academy and he has supported the likes of Bonobo, Atoms For Peace and Jon Hopkins.
His well rounded musical career has deepened with his involvement with record labels, he co-owns ‘Left Blank’ and ‘A Future Without’, along with running his own imprint ‘Snowfall’.
Tones’ 2018 is looking like business as usual with his conceptually imaginative next release on Houndstooth, ‘Embers.’ This piece of music showcases the artist’s real intelligence and exploration with its lack of creative restrictions. We cannot wait to unveil what else he has in store!
The first release from anonymous artist Invisible Minds has gone down a storm. From self releasing back in October, the brilliant song ‘Yo Mae Leh’ has been getting people talking!
The infectious sampling and uplifting chords caught the eye of Clash magazine, who featured the song on their ‘Track Of The Day’ http://tiny.cc/fp7dqy. BBC Radio 6 Music have championed the track, adding it to their B list after major support from Steve Lamaq, Lauren Laverne and Tom Ravencroft. To date it’s had over 40 plays and counting.
The track has racked up an impressive 1/4 million streams since the release and shows no sign of slowing. More recently the song climbed to number 1 in the ITunes Electronic Music chart. An amazing feat for a brand new artist.
The next steps for Invisible Minds are much anticipated. More news revealed soon.
The Truancy Blog recently invited Secretsundaze over for an interview and to be a part of their Truancy Volume’s, coming in at 197 in the series. This latest edition sees Giles and James join recent contributors such as Call Super, Peggy Gou, Mr G and Courtesy.
In the interview they discuss their year as a whole and how they feel they have progressed as artists. From starting to play B2B more, to cutting back on their workload to focusing on producing.
Their Volume is a strong representation of their style of DJing, with their usual emphasis on maintaining a solid groove being a focal point. Starting with the sweet sounds of the Detroit Escalator Company and moving to tracks throughout from Cassy, Glenn Underground, Wajeed and more, it’s a sultry blend of vintage house rolling in at an hour and a half.

Mule Music is a label with which Sebastian has had a long-term relationship, having presented numerous earlier works on the Tokyo based imprint and joined names such as DJ Sprinkles, Fred P, Henrik Schwarz and Petre Inspirescu on the low key, but highly respected label.
The three track “Broken Mirror” EP kicks off with “Mirror” on the A-side with deeply meditative tones and a twisted melody. On the reverse is two versions of “Broken Mirror”, the original delivers un-hasty grooving minimal techno and secondly the Wa Wu We Reflection which is even slower and more mesmerising.
Sebastian Explains “‘Mirrors’ was made the week before my gig at Berghain in May this year, and my spirit was tuned in with my upcoming gig at the techno Mecca”
Sebastian has been delivering this release as well as his newer and older material within his newly developed live set. This advanced and refined approach to his live set up has caught some serious attention, and allowed Sebastian to deliver his sound in just the right way.
Below we have footage captured from the recent Waking Life festival in Portugal where within his set Sebastian played a live version of “Mirrors” and a recent video where The Vinyl Factory came to Sebastian’s studio in the woods to capture a live jam on his all-new live set.
6 years after their first release on the label All In Records have called on the Romanian trio for their latest release “Last Man On Moon”. In those 6 years Premiesku have solidified themselves as staples in the scene backed up by releases on Desolat, Vakant, Cecille and 20:20 Vision. As well as these releases they have developed and honed their live analogue performance… a complete show using no computers.
“Last Man On Moon” offers up three hypnotic dancefloor hitters. The opener “Avant” is a solid, no-nonsense, bullet of subby kicks and rigid percussion whilst on the reverse “Even” switches to a much more minimalistic vibe and sound. This leaves “Last Man On Moon” to deliver a serious dose of dubby bass – a true B-side gem! This is the reason it has been selling out!
The P3 Musikguiden on Sveriges Radio is the premier new music radio show in Sweden, Sebastian’s homeland! Generally aimed at the youth of Sweden, they cover music, humour and all things new and Sebastian was asked down to do an hour-long show where he discussed his most recent releases and creative process, along with playing some music.
Sebastian was thrilled to go down to the radio as it is a big supporter of new music and brings forth new Swedish artists. Along with checking out his new releases, he discussed with the hosts his unique approach to music and invited them down to see his renowned studio in the woods!
