      Lucid - Closed Eye from “The New Reprise”, Nightshifters, NS024 Released Nov 15th, 2011 Video by Mark Brown http://www.markcharlesbrown.com Buy at iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-new-reprise/id475343342 Juno Download: http://www.junodownload.com/products/the-new-reprise/1854221-02/ You know how people say things like “next level” and “you’re not ready”, but then you hear the tracks, and you’re like “well, I was ready and it’s just like 1 baby-step away from whatever’s current now”. But of course, very rarely, there is music that when you hear it you aren’t actually ready for, music so different that it brings about a fundamental re-evaluation of what you think is actually music. Well, guess what. We’re happy to announce the debut release by Lucid on Nightshifters. It’s so next level that you’re literally not ready. Lucid makes music that sits between a lot of different aesthetics. In some ways he has taken a lot of “future” sounds and ideas from a lot of different types of music and then processed them into something that’s for the club despite sounding completely unique. All the elements you’d expect are there, subby kicks, sharp snares, and few whooshing bits and a few fiery synths - but to be honest, they are all in the wrong place. This new sound, this new concept in music, is so fundamentally thrilling that we have to really watch when we drop it. “The New Reprise” is so advanced that you’re bound to get some funny looks, but what we’re saying is this: this shit fucking slays. Every track on this EP is a surprise. The collision of sounds and sub frequencies is constantly curious. The Ep starts off with Jumbo - an overdriven slammer with massive snares and mind-melting frequency-bends. “Togo” marches to its entirely own robotic drummer with flanged grunts and a brutal drop about half way through. “Closed Eye” has some rave elements convoluted through an intergalactic spectrum while “Shh” slides between Electro in a blender and a case of whiplash. “Drung” closes out the original tracks with one of the biggest and most confounding breakdowns you’ll hear this year. I mean, we can throw a bunch of words and genres together, but the reality is you’ll listen to this and realize how little you know. An Ep this good doesn't need remixes, but we have some pretty incredible ones for you anyway. Sam Tiba from the unstoppable Club Cheval crew drops perhaps his best tune yet with an incredible trans-dimensional remix of “Shh”. The Godfather of Baltimore Club Music, Scottie B, goes way the fuck out with a noisy remix of “Jumbo” that should have the club in full-pogo mode, and UK’s Norrit shows us a slightly warmer, housier version of “Jumbo” that we know will get a ton of play. We’ll say it again; Lucid’s “The New Reprise” is so next level that you’re literally not ready. - Nightshifters is built around a core group of musicians making big club tracks to get people dancing! Our sound is hybridized; you can find elements of B’more, Rave, Electro, Dubstep, House, Bassline, and maybe even some Drum and Bass in the mix. We’re an open-minded lot who are working hard to make your parties better. http://www.nightshifterslabel.com

        • UNHEIM - reenacted

          01:03

          from Alexis Ds / Added

          2010 (installation "reenactment") Located on the wastelands of the CarriageWorks site, a vacated lot that merely revealed the ghostly remnants of a former building, Alexis Destoop unlocked some of the inaccessible, temporary spaces of the site, using freight containers that were situated behind cyclone fencing. Unheim was a two-channel video and sound work influenced by Beckett’s The Lost Ones (1970), a description of a paradoxical limbo defined by the movement of its dwellers, and characterised by changing light conditions. His project transposed certain principles of the literary work into a cinematic process, whereby apparatus such as setting, lights and camera became the principal subjects. From a particular location, viewers could perceive a continually unfolding space of corridors and doorways issuing from two portals, creating a sense of infinity within a hard, impenetrable casing., that challenged the notion of perspective and depth offered by the installation within the surrounding architecture. The footage was shot at night (during 2001-2002) at laboratories in the heart of a derelict industrial site in Northern France that was impacted by a wave of deindustrialisation in the 1970s, which echoed the situation of the Eveleigh site, in its state of transition and becoming.

              Magnum “Grooveworks” Nightshifters NS022 BUY: Juno Download: http://www.junodownload.com/products/grooveworks/1751054-02/ iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/grooveworks/id437097512 Beatport:https://www.beatport.com/en-US/html/content/release/detail/374364/Grooveworks We’ve never heard anything quite like Magnum. Daniel Enrique (aka Magnum) is from San Juan, Puerto Rico and his music is a paradoxical mix of abstracted rave melodies, massive and full of space over crisp, swung-out breaks that cut like a knife. Completely obtuse and yet totally banging, Nightshifters is thrilled to introduce the world to Magnum! “Grooveworks” is his debut EP and it stands out as one of the most unique sounds of the year! The Ep includes 5 original tracks from Magnum, with the title track providing to be one of the most challenging. I mean, you might call “Grooveworks” to be classified as dubstep but the beat twists and squirms away from the mind and lands squarely on the hips. “Cash” takes the rave-call to the max with massive build-ups that smashes the crowd into a pogo-frenzy. The deep bass gets under your skin and mingles with sliced Spanish vocals in “Underground” while the sharp snares of “Juracan” cut through sliding electronics and detuned shouts. But oh look – here comes the rave again on “Rays”, a huge tune and sure to get hands in the air! We don't play when it comes to awesome remixes and “Grooveworks” has 4 amazing ones. England’s Randomer takes Juracan on a multi-rhythmic ride that is easily one of the most exciting tracks we've heard in ages. Panteros666 from the super-hot Club Cheval crew reworks Rays in a way that evokes 80’s era Yellow while Hostage brings a light touch of Jungle to the Grooveworks. Our latest label signing, Lucid, rounds out the EP with a remix of Underground that pushes the original to a different dimension! You’ve never heard anything like what Lucid is doing - for real. Magnum is one of a next generation of producers we’re proud to be working with. Together with Canblaster, Distal, Talk, and now Lucid they are a new generation of producers that are pushing the limits in a big way. www.NightshiftersLabel.com

                TALK from the “Holy Mountain EP" NS019 Listen & Download: soundcloud.com/​nightshifters/​sets/​talk-holy-mountain-ep-ns019 Buy it: Juno: junodownload.com/​products/​holy-mountain/​1659169-02/​ Beatport: beatport.com/​en-US/​html/​content/​release/​detail/​302633/​Holy%20Mountain iTunes: itunes.apple.com/​us/​album/​holy-mountain/​id400288546 It's rare that music can feel 'new' anymore. But sometimes an artist comes along with an unusual mix of sounds and something bigger happens. We're proud to introduce you to something deep, menacing - and yes - something new. Talk is Daniel Lewis. His music is an intoxicating mixture of the mystical and guttural elements of strange late night lifestyles. Talk's music is surprisingly cinematic yet, at heart, everything he produces is dark bass-filled club music. With an ear toward dubstep, gutter house, grime and tech-house, Talk is always moving forward. He's constantly presenting audiences with his own atmosphere, constantly on the lookout for seductive new sounds. The Holy Mountain EP is Talk's debut release and it's pretty challenging. The title track is an epic bass music anthem and an ode to the 1973 psychedelic film by Alejandro Jodorowsky of the same name. "Finland" finds haunting choirs melding together over a percussive backbone, while "Burning Alive" is a dark, artful tech house wasteland of delayed voices and synths. "Walking Disease" finds Talk at work with lazer sitars, cinematic strings and haunting synth stabs; it's a dark journey through dark places. And then we have the remixes. Hot as hell Distal brings even more heat with his tense organ driven Dubstep remix of Holy Mountain. UK mystery man Skinnz made a skittery garage inspired take on the title track while LA/Canada duo LOL Boys push up the 3Ball Club. Last but most assuredly not least, Deathface gives you a kidney punch with his screaming Dubstep version of Walking Disease to round out the release. ___ Talk is also the first of a next generation of producers we’re proud to be working with.

                    Hostage - Roll (FREE EP - download the whole EP now!) http://www.nightshifterslabel.com/NS018/Hostage-Roll.zip Everyone knows that Hostage is an unstoppable music-making beast of legendary proportions pumping out hit after hit, week in and week out. And he’s been a busy, busy boy since his Radio 1 Essential mix earlier in the summer, playing alongside Annie Mac at the Manchester Apollo, Rockness Festival and he set the Arcadia Afterburner stage at Glastonbury ablaze -literally! Not to be restrained in the slightest, he’s back with 2 killer new tunes on this, his first free Ep on Nightshifters. With “Roll” we see Hostage shows us a slightly more subtle hand, well, that’s before the bass drops! With “The Ba$$” he’s back at his no-holds-barred-kicking-down-the-fucking-rave-door approach with one of the most ridiculous noise-bass drops you’ll hear this year. It’s massive!! With tracks this good, we had to pull together some remixes to make a nice tidy package for you so we asked Samo Sound Boy to turn on his Bubblin machine to bring you a bouncy dancehall flavored remix of the lead track while Figure takes the bass for a wobbly thrill ride. Nightshifters honcho Dj Donna Summer smacks you with some garage-flavored orchestral-rave to round out the set. That’s not a genre you see too often, now is it? - Nightshifters is built around a core group of musicians making big club tracks to get people dancing!
