DJ W!LD ‘King Hit’

Bastion of the Parisian underground scene and Circoloco resident at DC10, Dijon-born Guillaume Duchastel De Montrouge, aka DJ W!LD, is a longstanding figure who has remained true to his roots since the outset. Having been responsible for an array of over 300 tracks on some of the most respected labels around, W!LD founded his own imprint ‘W’ in 2010.

W!LD has since exercised an unrestrained artistic vision and output on the label. This has culminated in the forthcoming release of his album ‘Techno City,’ W!LD’s first album in over two years since his ‘When You Feel Me’ LP. The first single from the forthcoming album, ‘King Hit,’ out digitally March 6th, is an orchestra of snare rolls, emotive pads and a clinical, striking vocal sample that provides a look into W!LD’s ‘Techno City’ world. These all combine with classic machine-driven percussion to form a stripped back yet immediately effective club record.

DJ W!LD: “The album was inspired by a long winter spent playing dark and murky club rooms around the world. This album came about because I wanted to show a darker and more tech-orientated side of me. I wanted the tracks to give off this impression, and be evocative of the time I spent in these places and the type of music I was playing. I also wanted the album to give a feeling of movement, of a rising energy that builds exponentially from the outset to the finish, moving in the way that a mix or a DJ set does. As always, a combination of sampling and classic hardware use was my main creative output. The album in its entirety is a blend of classical music, acid, New York beats, Detroit techno and of course, a wild touch.”

DJ W!LD’s ‘Techno City’ LP will be available on double vinyl and digital on April 3rd via his ‘W’ label.

Paris star Crayon drops video for “Ocean 7 Part 2 feat MC Gracy Hopkins” ( House/RnB/Deep)

After his EP “Flee”, the french producer with minimalist and sophisticated house music reveal himself under antoher side.

“Ocean 7 Part 2” is a perfect balance, lights synths contrast with the incisive voice and the acerbic verb of Gracy Hopkins. This new track evokes a modern romance, told by the rapper who brings a firmly urban touch to the soft and mind-blowing notes of Crayon.

A romance illustrated by a video clip to come with the single. Crayon and Gracy Hopkins blend themselves into a felted and poetic daily life, like spectators of a dawning story.

A trade between two world as well as the two artists reserve us some surprises for months to come.

Swedish one-man band Simon On The Moon releases debut single – Hooked

Upcoming Swedish artist Simon on the Moon has released a new track, ‘Hooked’. The single is now available to stream on Spotify.

After playing in different bands in his hometown and DJing in local hip-hop clubs, Simon decided to pair his two loves by venturing into the world of production. He began DJing “out of pure curiosity about what makes people move and because of my growing love for urban music.” He noticed that the musical elements he most enjoyed were similar, but across different shapes and genres – “the things that made me want to write riffs and write music as a band is the same thing that drew me to RnB and the urban world.”

“I believe that genres are kind of dead and that “fusion is the future” – right now, sound-wise, I’m very thrilled by the thought of a hypothetical collaboration between Backstreet Boys and say Pink Floyd. That´s very alluring to me.”

The laid back ‘Hooked’ showcases Simon’s distinctive approach to production at its best. Fusing his own echoing vocals, live guitars and drums with a soft bassline and an R&B-like beat, the track is the product of Simon’s desire to “simply make an honest song I´d love to listen to”. All the instruments were recorded and mixed by Simon – mostly in his own bedroom – whilst he experimented with the effects the sounds had on each other.

The lyrics touch on the theme of unrequited love; how two individuals can have a very different perception of, and intention with, the same relationship – receiving fake love and falling for it, like getting high from a sugar pill.

He decided to release this debut track as a free download as “I spent a lot of time alone with this and the following songs, building my own universe around them, and now it just feels like the right time to share it with people and welcome them to make it theirs.”

‘Hooked’ is a precursor to two further full-length EPs, set to drop in early 2017. After playing his own songs during DJ sets and noticing how people wanted to know what they just heard, Simon on the Moon is well positioned to share his distinctive creations with the wider world.
