‘Bedrock Frequencies’ curated by John Digweed consists of 3 discs showcasing 31 exclusive tracks from some of Bedrock’s favourite artists, alongside exciting collaborations, label debuts, and some wonderful re-interpreted classics from the label’s illustrious back catalogue. Across the 3 distinctive sections - ‘Low’, ‘Mid’, ‘High’- ‘Frequencies’ provides a snapshot of a perfect Bedrock party, in the form of yet another musical masterclass from the Bedrock boss as he takes the listener on an unrivalled, evolving journey from start to finish.
The album features spectacular exclusives from Emerson, Digweed & Muir’s collaborative project, the legendary Robert Babicz, and supremely talented label regulars Guy J, Stelios Vassiloudis and BOg. But, as with all the best compilations, it’s also about featuring amazing music and giving a platform to up and coming artists, reaching across continents to fully represent the truly global nature of today’s thriving scene. There’s a delicious label debut from rising Indonesian artist Lily Pita; Thailand's most prominent underground techno DJ, Nakadia, teams up with the mischievous dark prince, Lee Van Dowski; a sublime cultural fusion of western electronics and eastern melodic sensibility from Brooklyn-based Israeli Etai Tarazi. ‘Frequencies’ welcomes the respected Pacha resident DJ Alex Kennon, whose genre-bending creativity sits perfectly here; there’s two melodic masterpieces from Italian duo Fideles; rising star Lehar, from Diynamic’s impeccable roster, is on remix duty; there’s the super-intricate swing of Joris Biesmans. Bournemouth-based Lee Williams makes his Bedrock debut; whilst hotly-tipped French duo Tim Baresko & Clyde P channel the spiritual vibe of a nascent 1987 Chicago house scene with their cleverly acidic ‘Throwback’. Most South Africans know Diamond Dealer as the DJ from Bloemfontein, where he started his career, playing deep African house music in the heart of the townships. His stunning Bedrock debut, the bass-heavy, rhythmically infectious ‘Little Hungry Monster’, and his hugely impressive acidic interpretation of Emerson, Digweed & Muir’s ‘Tracer’, will undoubtedly turn heads worldwide.
Toronto’s classically trained Glenn Morrison, Tokyo’s richly imaginative Satoshi Fumi, and Germany’s brotherly duo Monkey Safari, all make highly impressive returns to the label. But, interestingly, it’s the strength of the numerous collaborative studio partnerships that is perhaps even more revealing. There’s an incredible Latino Detroit fusion of styles from Vancouver-based Andromo, who joins forces with much respected USA scene stalwart Chris Fortier. ‘This Just Then’ marks this duo out as a future creative force to be reckoned with. The excellent production tag teams keep on coming: Austria’s Philipp Straub joins forces with Sweden’s Charlie Thostenson; Germany’s collaborative kingpin, Nils Nuernberg, teams up with Stelios Vassiloudis; Germany’s multitasking maestro Martin Eyerer with fellow countryman and techno-meister Patrick Chardronnet; then there’s BOg and Cologne’s Tim Engelhardt. Yet another bright new star on the techno horizon is Holland’s Rob Hes, who joins up with the up-and-coming LAAT to raise the techno temperature on CD3 to new heights with their intense ‘Perseverance’.
When you’ve got such rich and illustrious back catalogue containing unrivalled classics, to revisit at appropriate moments in time and reinterpret for a new generation, its no wonder that ‘Frequencies’ reveals some very special surprises. The recently formed Rhythm Design duo provide a masterful, soaring, percussion fuelled update of the 2001 Bedrock classic ‘Groove Is In The Air’ by Tijuana. Who better than Belfast’s magnificent Montel to remix another classic from 2001, Phil ‘Moonface’ Thompson’s ‘U Get So Give’ into a full-on techno beast? Saving the best until last, ‘Pushin’ Too Hard’ (a truly legendary Bedrock track and the label’s 9th release back in 2000 courtesy of Saints & Sinners), receives what can only be described as a career high point remix from the supremely talented Tel Aviv-based electronic musician and DJ, Guy Mantzur. A finale is rarely as impressive in quality as this, but since perfection from beginning to end is John Digweed’s trademark, it is quite simply always what is expected from Bedrock.

Bedrock Digital is set to celebrate its milestone 100th digital single release in superb style with ‘Tracer’, the second single from Emerson, Digweed & Muir – a collaborative project of the highest order from three of the scene’s most respected creative mavericks, whose huge debut ‘Fanfare’ (Beddigi88) had fans everywhere begging for more.
Between them, John Digweed and Nick Muir, producers of the finest electronic dance music, have been involved in many pivotal moments in the world of club music over the years and have in many ways helped to define genres & push the boundaries further. Joining forces with Detone boss Darren Emerson, who since his pioneering days with Underworld has remained at the forefront of the electronic scene across the last three decades for good reason, is a mission statement, showing that this illustrious trio are not resting on past laurels, but always developing themselves musically in exciting new directions.
Rather appropriately, in its original form ‘Tracer’ is an unmistakably heavyweight, pulsating, peak-time monster, loaded with menacing, fizzing, energetic, celebratory creative abandon. Meanwhile, Darren Emerson’s ‘Womb Mix’ develops ‘Tracer’ into an equally stunning, bombastic, stripped back, techno colossus, showcasing his supremely individualistic creative flair.
This album will not be released on Apple music / Spotify or any other streaming services
we did not get clearance on a bunch of tracks so thats that.
Topic: BedDigi99 - Cristoph & Jeremy Olander - Last Dance / Dimensions (6 replies, posted in General Bedrock Discussion)
The highly creative, Paris-based, Romanian electronic music composer and DJ, BOg, returns to Bedrock again with his dynamic 3-Track ‘Moonlight EP’. The EP’s title track and ‘0901’ are also highlights on the 67 track 5xCD ‘John Digweed – Live In Brooklyn, Output NYC’, the forthcoming 9th edition of the much-lauded mix series, available now to pre-order, exclusively from: http://bedrockmusic.bigcartel.com
With the ‘Moonlight EP’, BOg is raising his creative bar ever upwards, each of this trio of new musical masterpieces showcasing his unique talent. The instantly addictive melodic groove and sparkling energy of ‘Moonlight’ shows exactly what the young Romanian is capable of, with its hypnotic subtlety. ‘Eternal’ ups the energy quotient with its powerful groove and increasingly twisted arrangement and the spirited end result is no less enthralling. Finally, rounding off the package in style comes ‘0901’, introducing a deeper shade of darkness and warped funk into the proceedings, a combination that is sure to turn heads everywhere.
Having been deeply passionate about music since childhood, BOg has risen to his current prominence through releases on the likes of Crosstown Rebels and Alex Niggemann’s Soulfooled label, in addition his regular Bedrock outings. At the end of March he will also release a track on the new ‘Secret Weapons’ (Innervisions) compilation album. His DJing skills have recently seen BOg perform alongside John Digweed and Eagles & Butterflies at Mexico’s BPM Festival, and he also will support John at his forthcoming show in Bucharest at Kristal Glam Club. This summer BOg will grace the decks at the Electric Castle Festival (Romania) alongside Dixon, Ame, DJ Sneak, and other scene luminaries. A young man to keep an eye on perhaps?
Topic: BedDigi97 - Jamie Anderson - Event Horizon (0 replies, posted in General Bedrock Discussion)
With a release archive stretching back over 20 years, including EPs on Rekids, NRK, Cocoon, Flash and Gigolo; its fair to say that Artform boss and respected ‘veteran’ of the scene, Jamie Anderson, has been there, seen it and got the label t-shirt.
Or has he? Because today signals a first for the Berlin based Brit, as he makes his Bedrock debut with a deadly new double-header, ‘Event Horizon’ / ‘Bahia’.
An electronic chameleon, Jamie is as adept within the realms of deep house as he is turning out titanic techno. His brace for Bedrock explores the space between the two. Event Horizon with it’s dancing synth, straight kick and rasping hats is backed by the deep throbbing groove of Bahia’s tribal toms and stabbing keys.
Darren Emerson twists his own groove on the remix of Event Horizon. Accentuating the kick, he roughens and chops the original synth to create a raw and hypnotic swing. Impressive work and a fine addition to Anderson’s first Bedrock outing.
Topic: BedDigi95 Montel - First Light / Shadows (0 replies, posted in General Bedrock Discussion)
Montel returns to Bedrock with a brand new heavyweight brace in ’Shadows’ and ‘First Light.’ Tracks, he tells us, that take influence from his time spent at the centre of some of the worlds seminal dancefloors.
“Clubs like Twilo, The Tunnel and the early days of Ministry of Sound and The End still play a big part in inspiring my music today. I suppose it has a kinda nostalgic vibe.”
Those heady times and long weekends soundtracked by the driving sounds of Tyrant, S-Man, Peace Division, our faces lit by the single ray of Tenaglia’s spotlight as the drums kicked at our sternums. That same energy and power exudes from both tracks here. Raw, atmospheric, heavy on the groove and hitting like a pile-driver. As Montel says…
“I’m not looking to re-invent the musical wheel. It’s all been done before. I’m here to have fun, dance and play big tunes in big rooms.”
Released Feb 27th on Bedrock records
Last year was a breakthrough year for Khen. One that most would fantasise about. Racking up accolades in form of a Beatport number 1 album on one of the most coveted labels on the scene and playing packed shows in Buenos Aires, London, Budapest and Belgrade, he’s gone from obscure up-and-comer to budding star.
Khen already has a steadily growing flow of supporters including Pete Tong, Kölsch, Sasha, Nicole Moudaber, Dixon and Guy Gerber already singing his praises. He's been named one of “25 Artists to Watch in 2017” by leading US Publication Dancing Astronaut, alongside Yotto, ANNA and Enrico Sangiuliano, whilst many of the other key music publications have shown their support over the past 12 months.
With an emotionally charged style that blends early 2000s progressive with house grooves and elements of techno, Khen’s trademark sound has caught the attention of labels like microCastle, Sudbeat and Lost & Found. Now, he can add Bedrock to that list.
February 27th sees the release of his three-track ‘Baby Steps’ EP. With groovy percussions, thumping bass-lines and mesmerising emotionally laden melodies, the ‘Baby Steps’ EP is an impressive Bedrock debut. From the delicate, yet powerful energy in ‘Baby Steps’, the thumping, driving groove in ‘Mountains Air’ to the serene and Electronica-esque ‘Pareidolia’, Khen displays an impressive breadth of production technique and maturity in his soundscape.
2 hours from Easter Bedrock 2008 for Transitions 650. Pretty sure he's played 4 hours from this before? Sometime in 2008.
Edit: Yep, August 2008. Still on Kiss100 back then BTW.
recycling or my mind is going
Who do you think mixes the show you plank
Whats going on with the two best of mixes mixing?? Dunno who did it but im guessing it wasnt who usually does them.

Thought I was going to be toast when the lightning kicked off.
Three great tracks from Stelios
Having returned from an extended musical hiatus to deliver April’s excellent ’33.3’, label favourite Stelios
Vassiloudis returns to double up on his former ep and close out 2016 with another fine three track selection
Stelios’ powerful and dynamic productions have established him as one of Bedrock’s melodic masters. His tracks and remixes are essential tools for the creative DJ. Those who seek to forge intimate sensations and stories on the dancefloor, be it through emotive soundscapes or segueing into tougher territory.
66.6 delivers yet more of these crucial cuts. The moody purring synth of 'Blood Orange’ opens the EP with an unnerving deepness, before we’re introduced to the almost industrial stomp and pulsing bass of ‘Slippy’. Somewhat oddly named with its spikey melody and rough edges. Finally Stelios orders us back into the depths as we’re held within the sultry cinematic confines on La Quarantaine.

Topic: New Bedrock Ep - Martin Eyerer, Mihai Popoviciu & Marcus Homm (1 replies, posted in General Bedrock Discussion)
Released November 14th on Beatport
Bedrock are proud to welcome Martin Eyerer, Mihai Popoviciu and Markus Homm to the label with their excellent double-header ‘Get Down / Ok Cool’.
With all three artists working with Martin’s mangement agency, its a suprise to discover that our new brace of tracks are the first from a debut and impromptu studio session. “We stepped into the studio after a gig together in Markus’ home town” says Martin. “Right from the start it was an easy and flowing session, bouncing ideas off each other.”
Having built the bones of both, the tracks were then bounced between the trio to completion. Renowned for their organic grooves and perky percussive skills, Mihai and Markus gelled perfectly with Martin’s peaktime proficiency to deliver two bruising Bedrock hits.
Less is most definitely more on lead track ‘Get Down’. A brooding bassline, spritely but sparse synth melody and spoken ‘Get Down’ vocal work together, with a sprinkling of shimmering cymbals, to create a dark yet warm atmosphere. Dim the lights, launch the strobe, find a speaker and Get Down. On the flip ‘Ok Cool’ lets us know that everything’s gonna be alright by wrapping us tightly within its buzzing bassline and drifting synths.
