Tonight’s a big night for the heads in NYC, as a special takeover at SRB Brooklyn is happening; courtesy of the venerable UK house label Aus Music. It’ll be headlined by Midland, currently on a debut tip in the U.S., along with label owner Will Saul — coming off his fantastic LP under the guise of CLOSE — bringing the label vibe to the NYC forefront. Along with the aforementioned twosome will be Appleblim, who’s appeared on AUS under a couple of releases and remixes, along with running his own imprint, Applepips. Joining these three will be long-time FIXED residents JDH & Dave P. To say this will be great is a massive understatement; it’s going to be epic. Check out some previews of tonight’s event, along with the flyer and ticket link, post-jump.
Producers that got soul usually know how to pluck the heartstrings of every person who listens to their tunes; the same applies with DJs who have a feel for rhythms wrapping around the heads on the dancefloor, picking people’s mind apart and implementing something invigorating and vibrant all at once. Enter George FitzGerald, who has found solace in taking elements of current and classic techno, UK garage and RnB, molding his favorite bits into tunes and mixes that not only melt your heart but make you marvel. The almost effortless mixing and superb selections are something that will make people guess at how someone could pull stuff off like he can, and as well as get a girl on the floor excited. George is not only a great producer but an excellent guide towards finding sounds that stretch beyond the basic goal of making one dance. Perhaps he’s reaching out emotionally on the floor to make us feel something more special…
Either way, George took the time to answer some questions about himself and his exclusive mix for URB. More info on George, the mix and tracklist after the jump.
Will Saul is a busy man, to say the least. While producing his own material he manages to run two labels; Simple Records and AUS Music, one for more techno and house variations and the other for the hair-splitting bass genres …
For some, the start of a new year means a fresh start, a smattering of new beginnings and the welcome opportunity to suppress any previous personal woes and move on to better things. For others, though, it’s simply business as usual, whether it be another monochrome day in the rat race, another shunt against the omnipresent recession or another day spent at home pointlessly filing paperwork and eating yoghurt in your underpants.
The real beauty of 2010’s forthcoming operations for some dubstep labels, though, is the ability to disguise their fierce forward motion as regular operation.
Joy Orbison has a huge year ahead of him; with the hype that surrounded him in 2009 via his debut smash “Hyph Mngo”, people are clamoring to new bits of Joy for their audible pleasure. While there has been a steady trickle of MySpace tracks that he’s been posting (that are NOT DUE for release anytime soon), he did give Gilles Peterson a track to debut on his program not too long ago. (which we covered HERE) Now, with the official news that AUS Music will be releasing new Joy material, fans may rejoice and dance collectively.
