Underground Audio reveal latest EP by Ibiza based Lewis Jimenez

Following on from his EP on Saved Records, London-based DJ and producer Lewis Jimenez has announced his new Modulation EP, to be released via Underground Audio on November 25th.
The opening title track starts off as a dark, rumbling beat that takes you on a journey with spacey synths and subtle vocals, floating in and out of the mix.
Next up is Man on the Moog, which focuses more on percussive elements with a funky melody bringing it into an intense, synthesized crescendo.
Lastly is Alma – ending the EP on a lighter note, it has a minimal feel to it with a melodic bassline and filtered synths echoing throughout. Coupled with the percussive groove and looping vocals, it creates an infectious energy.

About Lewis Jimenez
Introduced to the electronic music scene at the age of 13, Lewis Jimenez was instantly hooked after spending most weekends at infamous clubs and parties around London. Since then, he has always wanted to get involved on the other side of the decks then venturing into production in 2012. Living in Ibiza for the last couple of years has further shaped his music, when he wasn’t visiting or DJ’ing at the island many clubs he was completely immersed in production and has released on Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records.

Zoo Brazil – “Peak” Saved Records

The US Grammy and BRIT Award nominated Zoo Brazil, also know as John Andersson, has over 140 singles and 8 albums to his name, under a variety of monikers.

Throughout his career John has steadily carved out a reputation as one of dance music’s most innovative and respected producer/DJs, with his work appearing on some of the finest electronic imprints. John has also co-written, produced and remixed many crossover and pop hits. A unique and exciting artist. Today he makes a much welcomed return to Saved Records, with a track thats set to heat things up as we dream of the start of summer. PEAK is, as the title suggests, one for those special raise-the-roof moments. Its dancing synth melody spikes throughout, raising the intensity as the track’s big bulbous bassline rolls out the awesome rhumba rhythms. On the flip Chaim takes the original on a deep, mystical journey. Seducing the listener with his percussive sounds.

Stream Kant’s remix of Elderbrook x Andhim’s – ‘How Many Times’

After spending the best part of 12 months building serious momentum in the clubs, Andhim x Elderbrook’s ‘How Many Times’ is now available to buy via taste-making imprint Black Butter.

A twisting, percussive masterclass built around Elderbrook’s hazy, dreamcast vocals, German producer duo Andhim’s take on ‘How Many Times’ is as abstract as it is infectious, proving that their work has the guile to be appreciated both in and away from the dancefloor. Having amassed nearly 900,000 streams organically via Soundcloud too (and a further 1.7 million via Spotify) and topped the Hype Machine chart, it’s a track that’s clearly connected – as further evidenced by the news that ‘How Many Times’ also ended the summer as one of the ‘Top 10 Most Shazam-ed Tracks in Ibiza’.
With fresh remixes from both Kant – who turns a deeper, darker hand to his dub edit – and Saved Records boss Nic Fanciulli also forecast as part of the release package, ‘How Many Times’ is shaping up to make a real impact at the back end of 2015.

About Andhim
With releases spanning labels like Terminal M, Monaberry and most recently Get Physical – for whom they have released a trio of EPs over the last three years – German producer duo Andhim are a force to be reckoned with. Pioneering their own brand of house music, a sound they simply refer to as ‘Super House’, Andhim have built a reputation for being some of Europe’s most revered party starters – as evidenced by numerous Ibiza appearances at Ushuaia, Sankeys and Amnesia this summer. The duo also recorded their debut BBC R1 Essential Mix earlier this year.

About Elderbrook
20 year old London-based singer/producer Elderbrook has quickly made a mark on the wider landscape with his own brand of down-tempo, hip-hop inspired beats. A keen musician to boot – he plays the guitar, bass, piano and drums – his hazy, whimsical vocal style has drawn admirers too, including key London imprint Black Butter, to whom Elderbrook is now signed.

Nic Fanciulli Presents ‘A Decade Of Saved’ // Saturday 7th November @ Fire, Vauxhall

decadeofsafed

Ever since its inception back in 2005, Saved Records has evolved into one of the most recognizable and prolific electronic imprints of today. Having served the underground’s charts and dancefloors for ten years to the highest level, label boss Nic Fanciulli is now preparing to celebrate this incredible achievement by hosting a very special party with some of his favourite artists who have helped define the label over the years. Taking place on Saturday 7th November, A Decade of Saved will see the brand return to London’s Fire following their superb debut at the club back in January. Nic has carefully selected 10 DJs that represent ten years of Saved to join him, of which Phase One can now be announced…

Headlining the night will of course be label-head and Saved architect Nic Fanciulli. Regarded as one of the UK’s finest house music exports, the Grammy nominated producer has formed an unstoppable career through building a trademark catalogue of tech-driven sounds purposely built for the dancefloor. 2015 has already seen Nic embark on a whirlwind eight dates in ten days world tour plus performances at Amsterdam’s Awakenings, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival and London’s South West Four amongst others. This year has also seen Nic continue to dominate Ibiza through his La Familia residency alongside Joris Voorn at Ushuaia as well as further performances for Paradise at DC10, Ants and Carl Cox’s Revolution. The Social, Nic’s self-curated festival has also firmly marked itself on the map, returning for a third year in a row. In a career spanning over fifteen years, there has been no better time to see this master in action.

Ibiza favourite and Ants resident Andrea Oliva is the first to be invited to play this special date, having proven himself as one of the world’s most sought after DJs through delivering some of the most talked about sets in recent times. With an impressive six tracks on the label including his 2012 ‘Out of Town’ EP, Andrea is a natural choice for the tenth anniversary. Most noticeably in 2015 is the release of his debut album 4313 on Objektivity, an artistic masterpiece that has helped Andrea evolve into the artist he is today.

Tipped as one to watch by Fanciulli himself and BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Saved’s very own Lauren Lane will make her debut performance at the club on the night. First cutting her teeth as a DJ in the New York House scene, Lane has relocated to L.A where she holds down a residency at the world renowned Sound club in Hollywood. With appearances at Jamie Jones’s Paradise at DC10 as well as festivals like BPM and Coachella to name just a few, Lauren’s profile as a DJ is leaping from strength to strength.

After bursting onto the scene with ‘Finder’ back in 2013, Ninetoes has emerged as one of the most exciting artists currently residing on the underground scene and also joins the tenth anniversary celebrations. Quickly garnering support from a vast range of artists including Nic Fanciulli, Carl Cox, DJ Koze and Jesse Rose, the Berlin-based producer is on a fast-track to the top.

Underground favourite Mark Fanciulli also joins the bill having played an important yet defining role in the labels development over the years. With his profile growing at such rapid pace thanks to releases on Saved, Rejected and Arena Remote, we had to invite Mark back following his stellar performance at Fire through Saved’s January showcase.

Completing the Phase One announcement is Saved’s own Rob Cockerton, a DJ who Fanciulli cites as being responsible for showing him the ropes of the trade. A key member of the Saved family, Cockerton has released his own productions on the label including 2014’s ‘Girls and Boys’. The EP gained huge popularity and was championed by the likes of Carl Cox and Marco Carola.

With so many incredible acts coming together to celebrate ten years of Saved Records plus Phase Two still to be announced, this promises to be one of the standout nights in London’s 2015 clubbing calendar.

Stream a Nic Fanciulli & Butch Remix of Lauren Lane’s ‘Cool Kids’ // Out now via SAVED Records

After a two and half year absence, The Lost Mixes makes a welcome return to Saved Records. Part 3 has come to fruition after a recent trip to the Saved vaults unearthed two hidden gems that simply demanded the right to see the light of day with a proper release. Nic Fanciulli & Butch’s lost remix of Lauren Lane’s “Cool Kids” and Mark Fanciulli’s “8 Track” Terrace Mix finally stand up to take the limelight they deserve.

Nic Fanciulli & Butch hone in on “Cool Kids” distinctive bassline for their delightfully playful remix. Keeping it simple, the pair inject a sense of swing into the grove courtesy of jostling beats and a frenetic top end. Laidback and fun, the remix finds a highly addictive quality through its own simplicity.

Mark Fanciulli ramps up the energy and dives headfirst into an unadulterated driving techno groove on “8 Track.” Echoed brass parts and impassioned vocals fill the remix with a carnival spirit that runs right the way through the booming 4/4s and deep, driving basslines that provide the backbone.

Cuartero – Dissapear EP [Saved Records]

Saved 101 serves up a distinct reminder of the ideals that have kept Saved Records at the forefront of electronic music for so long. Immediately after the celebratory Saved 100 compilation, the imprint is once again pushing emerging and exciting talent with a dynamic 5 track EP from rising Spanish producer, Cuartero.

Starting things off on a deep house vibe, Cuartero settles into a tight workout with “The Chaser.” Balanced perfectly with crisp beats and an infectious but subtle swing, the groove jostles for position with Forrest’s addictive vocals. “Disappear” has a tougher edge; its pounding 4/4s paving the way for the old school bassline that runs throughout. It’s warehouse, ravey aesthetic injects the track with a real energy that persists throughout.

“Ajucar” starts out as heads-down, driving techno but morphs and evolves into a complex and expansive soundscape. There are plenty of elements bristling beneath the surface here, creating a track with bag loads of personality as well as club appeal. “Buttons” sees the Spaniard returning to that old school feel with a track built around a churning, relentless bassline, wonky synths and fuzzy electronics.
