A special white label vinyl release for Record Store Day 2017 found Timo Maas & James Teej and Sebastian Mullaert serve up fantastic new remixes of the classic Moby track “Porcelain”.
Long time techno titan Maas partnered up with Canadian James Teej add further weight to the Rockets and Ponies catalogue with the Broken China Dub of Porcelain. The vital new version is a trippy nine-minute symphony of synthetic sounds and smeared, heartbroken chords of the iconic original whilst one finger piano grooves bring emotion to the rubbery groove.
The comes Swedish artists Sebastian Mullaert. His masterful Transformation Mix is a fourteen-minute opus that takes the listening on a trip through organic sound design and summery grooves.
These two tracks are special indeed, causing a serious stir on Record Store Day and completely selling out!
July 2017 saw Fur Coat launch their new Oddity imprint aimed towards a darker, tripped-out techno sound. The Venezuelan DJs have already carved out an impressive career over the past six years and the realisation of their own label has given them the best opportunity to showcase their developing darker sound
“Starting our own label is something that we’ve had in mind for a long time. It ́s a platform for us to express ourselves and have 100% the control on the art concept we want to put on each vinyl, the music we want to show from ourselves, and the artists we share passion for, giving us the ability to invite them onto the label.
The meaning of Oddity is having something rare, odd in a good way, something really special. This whole project has been cooking for almost a year, piecing things together. We can say we are giving all our efforts to put out there the music we like with a special touch on every physical copy, with an artwork made from some pretty cool Colombian artists and designers based in Barcelona (Lina Bassiouny and Maria Paula Quiva).” – Fur Coat
