Staffordshire based talent Bradley James is quickly becoming one of the most interesting up-and-coming names in the current Dance music panorama. Having recently released a very well received remix of Solberjum’s ‘Grosseille’, the young talent is back to form with his newest single ‘Caiman’.
Releases on the 30th of July, 2015 as part of Housesession Records’ twenty two-track compilation ‘Housesession Summer Anthems 2015’, ‘Caiman’ is a leading track amongst the works of renowned artists such as: Vince La Monica, David Penn, Kid Shakers, Carl Shawn, Raffael De Luca, Calcanda, Robert Feelgood, DJ Shu-ma, Marco Santoro, Marc Palacios, Appt.829, POTD, Alexey Romeo, Dan Domino, PhunkUnique, DJ Sign, Tune Brothers, Sebastian Park, Andy B. Jones and Todd Valex.
Bradley James’ freshest effort ‘Caiman’ is the culmination of Bradley James’ unique style, which sits comfortably within the various sub-genres of House music. Having already given a taste of his sound through his other wonders ‘Charger’ and ‘Visionary EP’, which have landed massive support also on BBC Introducing, he is now taking things to the next level with ‘Caiman’.
Enticing, deep synth melodies are the driving force behind ‘Caiman’ whilst the mesmerising House inspired grooves offer a solid rhythmic base upon which the rest of the harmonies and arrangements are built. A series of swishing effects and the vocal snippets spice up this single and take it to the next level, whilst Bradley James takes full control over dynamic and energy levels. ‘Caiman’ has a remarkable groove factor to it, developed via the punchy drum beats and also the infectious low-end infused synths and bass-lines. Once again Bradley James has proposed another display of his refined musical vision which has the potential to take over the House music world in the years to come.
Housesession Records has been one of the first labels to notice Bradley James’ gift and have since nurtured his talent to become a regular on the German imprint. The Housesession Records family is made up of other renowned labels like: Sume Music, Red Eleven Recordings, Bang It! Recordings, Vamos Music and UMTATA Records and has been the home for top names such as: Ton Don, Jimmy Carris, AM2PM, Modium, Ivan Kay, Luke Db, Tune Brothers, Martin Villeneuve, Asino and Danny Da Costa to name a few.
Bradley James is certainly a name to follow in the months and years ahead and will definitely become a household name in the very near future. Housesession Records can surely count on this wonder kid for their future development and one can only expect much more yet to come from this fast-developing talent.

Melbourne-based electronic duo Back Back Forward punch became known for their self-proclaimed “indulgent disco-electro beats.” Their recent release, “No Answer,” quickly won over fans as one of this summer’s most infectious tropical anthems. It’s sunny, bubbly, and bright.
This remix is none of those things. For their take on the tune, Miami-based duo Paperwater offers something entirely different. A polar opposite to the original, Paperwater’s remix steers the tune down a shadowy, introspective path. Haunting melodies tiptoe delicately alongside ethereal siren vocals before giving way at intervals to booming bass-and-rhythm sequences reminiscent of a battle march.
“We first heard of Back Back Forward Punch after our trip to Australia and have been following them ever since, So when they released (No Answer) we knew that it was the right record to flip into our style and show how awesome the original is. We had a lot of fun working on this record and can’t wait to play it”
The finished product is a unique and thoughtful work of art that engages the mind and takes listeners to a deeper, darker state of being.
LE CASTLE VANIA and LUMBERJVCK could not be better suited to collaborate with each other. Both have built their reputations on taking electronic music into harder and heavier territories. By working together, they seem to have dared each other to go even further down this road.
The ‘You Know My Name EP’ takes a punk rock attitude towards bass music. It delivers emotional melodies, crashing beats, rumbling basslines and tearing synths that leave you ultimately breathless. These tracks are designed to get a crowd hyped and keep them energetic and on their toes.
The sneering vocal and bass sounds of ‘You Know My Name’ are first out of the gate. Then, the funky bending bass and synths of this mid-tempo banger, ‘Numba One’ plants a fist firmly into your solar plexus. ‘Ham Sandwich’ increases the tempo and the funk further, inserting electro vibes as well as a touch of old-school hip-hop swagger into the mix. Finally, LA-based singer/songwriter Mariana Bell delivers a haunting vocal on the anthemic trapstep of closer ‘Carry On’ that lifts the whole release to even greater heights.
Uncompromising, energetic and alarming at times, this release ensures that anyone unfamiliar with LUMBERJVCK and LE CASTLE VANIA before, will certainly KNOW THEIR NAMES after this.
