Mason; I Am Your Bass Friend!

Mason release their latest nugget this week on Herve's Cheap Thrills imprint. The track, entitled 'Bass Friend' is a jackin', dirty slab of disco-tech with one of those annoyingly catchy vocal refrains.

The single comes in two versions, 'For Him' and 'For Her' with the latter being the funkier, and less tough option, not that we are reinforcing stereotypes here!

There are also remixes from The Sneekers and Elektropusher. So far Mason have been making plenty of Bass Friends with the tune and support has come from the likes of Digitalism, Steve Aoki, Feadz, Fake Blood and many other tastemakers.

Corderoy new release is a Monster Tune

Big Fish Little Fish's Dale Corderoy releases his latest progressive nugget this week on the UK based Monster Tunes label.

The track, entitled 'Mechanical Tears' features the vocals of Belasco front man Tim Brownlow and was co-written with ex Dogzilla producer Richie Kayvan.

Under the 'Corderoy' guise Dale is rapidly becoming a force to be reckoned with as a producer. He has also recently produced and appeared as vocalist on a track with Judge Jules for Paul Van Dyk's Vandit records.

Our view from the fish tank is the Corderoy is set to be big news over the coming months as this guy

Mason Go Release Crazy

Dutch duo and BFLF management clients Mason have a bumper crop of releases coming this month.

Its time to come home again for the Mason boys with another double a-side release for their imprint Animal Language. Once again it’s a tale of two very different vibes across this digital platter.

 'Scaramouche' has been a Mason live show opener for the last year and has hammered several major festivals this summer. With its slight Italo stylings, choppy staccato riffing, stomping bass pushes and epic melodic break  'Scaramouche' is the theme to an 80's animated sci-fi series that never was. 

Next up the boys have 'Get It Together' being released on uber trendy New York imprint Fool's Gold. The track will feature on the latest Clubhouse album complied by A-Trak, the labe's head honcho.

Next up is Mason's first release on Herve's Cheap Thrills label. The track entitled 'Bass Friend' is a filthy little disco-tech number and will see light of day in late October.

In the meantime Iason and Coen are holed-up in the studio writing tunes and preparing for their hometown invasion when the Amsterdam Dance Event comes around.

Bleach Feast for Clive Mead

Brighton's Clive Mead wears many hats when it comes to production, from movie soundtracks, downtempo grooves & beats and club bangers for several UK labels including his local label Skint.

His latest release comes on Tech/deep house label Bleach Feast. Flute Fly takes a deep, almost Murk-like groove and imbues it with a mega infectious piece of woodwind that even James Galway would have been proud.   With an extra smatter of sexed-up vocal and moody hammond, Flute fly sounds like St Germain on a tour of the Reeperbahn.
 Anglo-Moroccan outfit Dubb Disko take Flute Fly down a stripped, darker path creating a beautifully atmospheric piece of deep house.

Never afraid to keep it varied, this is the latest of a string of summer releases for Bleach Feast.

Mason & Marcos Valle's Italian Job

Italian house imprint and Ego sister label, Hysterical have signed Mason's collaboration with Brazilian legend Marcos Valle.

The latin infused anthem called 'Solarium' was recorded between Amsterdam and Rio de janeiro earlier in the year and was made specifically with beach volleyball and blue coloured umbrella decorated cocktails in mind.  

Hysterical and Ego head of A&R Matteo Esse remarked that "to have a record with both mason and Marcos Valle is a big thing for the label. This is a surprising record for 
Mason but it proves that there are many sides to what the guys do. To have a record with Marcos Valle, a guy who has been recording since the 60's is pretty special"

'Solarium' has already enjoyed support and great reactions from the likes of Sneak, Ashely Beedle, BeatauCue, Sinden, Roger Sanchez and Shir Khan. Meanwhile new remixes
are expected in the next few weeks.

Mason release Loopmasters artist series album

Mason have released an artist series album through Loopmasters, one of the World's most respected labels for production samples.

The album entitled 'Analogue Farmhouse' utilises the Dutch duo's love of all things analogue, warm and squelchy generated from their unique modular wall as well as banks of old synths hidden away in their Amsterdam studio.

As the blurb on the packet says, Mason's Analogue Farm House is is a collection of organic, free range hits and loops as fresh as a newly laid egg and as solid as an old tractor!

STOP PRESS: Music tech bible has just  awarded the album 10/10!!!!
