House producer and creator of Balearic Bass vibes picked up the third of a hatrick of spins on Radio 1 over the weekend for his track 'Girl From Tomorrow'. Radio 1 Xtra's DJ Monki has now aired the track 3 weeks on the bounce.
The track, part of his new EP release of the same name has been gaining massive support from Capital, XFM and other influential radio stations as well as a host of the most discerning club DJs out there. Heliotype has even had support from the legendary KCRW in Los Angeles.
The ensuing heat has caused several large labels to start sniffing around, as they do!
Mason hit the very top spot on the Beatport Indie Dance chart this week with his latest release 'Papapapa'. This cheeky slice of bouncy House comes courtesy of burgeoning imprint LouLou Records, run by Kolombo and LouLou Players.
'Papapapa' is now rising swiftly up the main chart and looks set to be a big tune this year as the Sun makes an appearance once again.
In the meantime Mason is girding his loins for the next Nite Rite release on his own Animal Language Records. As usual that will surface on the next full moon.
Mason releases his hotly anticipated 'Papapapa' this week on LouLou Records, the label owned jointly by LouLou Players and Kolombo. 'Papapapa' features on part of an EP with a selection of hip new producers including fellow Amsterdammer and Dutch Disco cohort Quinten 909.
The track completes a trio of releases all in Beatport's Indie Dance chart at there moment with Mason and Moonbootica's 'My Love' and the latest Nite Rite, number Three, all climbing.
In the meantime Mason is working on the next Nite Rite single and a host of very interesting collaborations which should see the light of day in
this half of 2015.
Loopmasters, the market leaders in sample packs have launched a new series called 'Tru Disco'. The new release is the brainchild of Big Fish Little Fish Music collaborator Clive Mead. Clive is also behind two very successful 'Atalanta Chill' sample packs.
Tru Disco embraces Clive's love of scratchy analogue instruments and well as live playing with fastidiously recorded parts aimed at providing producers with seriously authentic disco samples.
Mason has been nominated for an IDMA award at the Winter Music Conference in Miami this year. The nomination comes in the 'Best Tech House Record' category for the recently re-released 'Exceeder' remixed by Umek and Mike Vale.
We'd love to see Mason tearfully accepting the ward in Miami later this month, so fingers crossed!
In the meantime the Amsterdam based producer is busy in the studio making more releases for his brand new 'Nite Rite' series. These tracks are dark, clubby cuts that are released every full moon!
