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.
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.
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!
Sailor & I is a Swedish singer and producer, his first release ‘Tough Love’ was on Black Butter in 2012, since then has released a number of hit records, his latest venture is his debut album named ‘The Invention Of Loneliness’ which will be released on the imprint Skint. The Fur Coat remix of Black Stars, is an atmospheric track with hypnotic vocals swaying throughout. The duos take on it is a focused and cunning techno track that with a spacious low-end, icy vocal chops and a foreboding basement vibe that is bound to make any room feel a little bit darker.
The new Elrow resident of 2017 Bastian Bux aims to reduce everything surrounding a DJ and producer to its essential element: the music. His production is full of deep textures, powerful harmonies, heavy beats and fat basslines. Fur Coat produced a masterpiece raw techno remix of Lights, powerful but with all the elements under control. The levels and layers work hand in hand with the lovely vocal of Kyla Millette giving the song a very modern and elegant vibe.
The rising danish duo M€RCY release a 3 track EP on the long-standing Souvenir imprint, broadcasting their gloomy, melancholic vibe, which is becoming their trademark. On the flip of this EP, Fur Coat’s remix of Tunnel beefs up the beats but keeps the murky vibe. Shuffling hi-hats and an onslaught of cleverly placed effects capture the original analogue melodies. The steady flow allows only a few well-timed breaks to allow the dancefloors a chance to breathe. Truly heavy underground remix vibes from this prolific duo.
Revered Swedish producer Sebastian Mullaert, releases his first exclusive vinyl on Default Position after the huge success of his remix to “Vedanta” in 2014.
It all began with a melody recorded live on Sebastian’s beloved Roland SH101 which features as the intro to his Dance Thru Shadowed Structures Mix. Sometime after this was published the young Daniel[i] was so captivated and inspired that he sampled it and created a twelve minuet remix. Sebastian was impressed with this and together they approached Default Position with the idea of turning it into an EP. The project has resulted in seven individual mixes and the melody has been re-sampled in many different ways, offering several contrasting styles.
“Samunnati” is now a brand new double vinyl EP featuring four original adaptations from Mullaert. It also featuresthe remixes by fellow Swedish duo Knutsson/Berg, Belgium’s Daniel[i] and the label founder Joseph S. Joyce.
The EP is out now on vinyl and available digitally on the 2nd October 2017.
