Udopiya is introducing its record label under the name of “Udopiya Dusk & Dawn”. The label draws its source from HISHAM’s musical universe – who’s the multi-instrumentalist of Udopiya’s family.
On each vinyl will be a “Dusk Face”, with tracks club-oriented, and a “Dawn Face” with tracks which also fit for clubs, but in a more soulful way or free from form.
This EP will be the first of 4 Opus composing his debut album « Synesthésie Générale »
“JOY” opens the “Dusk Face” taking you to a cold funk and cinematic atmosphere – led by a heavy bass line and tempered by a dreamy piano. “BLUE” has a pumping and solid drum within a celestial ambiance… waiting for the bells.
On the “Dawn Face”, while confusion becomes happiness, Melanonan and Aqualung are taking over. The liquid and organic drums of Melanoman keep your body on earth, while a simple naive piano uplifts your soul: a pure emotional journey.
AQUALUNG is a neoriental track with a percutant drum and an aerial piano, which has been inspired by the arab diva Oum Kalthoum .
If « synesthésie » denotes the ability to see music in colors, Hisham initiates here the « Synesthésie Générale »and expresses a state of sensory fusion between music, colors and moods. The project is gracefully delivered with calligraphy paintings as artwork, courtesy of the irakian artist Hassan Massoudy. 180g vinyl.

Credits: Label favourite Joss Moog never fails to produce the goods when asked and delivers another killer EP through through Phil Weeks’ Robsoul Recordingsthis coming March. The Parisian has impressed with his releases on Robsoul since 2006, beginning with the much sought-after Room 25 EPculminatinating in last years full length ablum Late Nite Beats, and has subsequently built up a discography including music for Magnetic, Maracuja, Kinjo, Exprezoo, Minority and Synchrophone.
4th Sign oozes quality from the off, fusing dusty vocal vinyl samples expertly with trademark jazz inspired chords and vintage drums, the EP reeks of late night escapades in the Parisian capital, you can almost smell the smoke coming out the speakers. B-side Who Thinks is served up in two delicious versions with the (Main) mix providing a driving underground house arrangement peppered with a sweet jazzy vibe to heat up dance floors while the (Dub) mix is centred around delightful percussion and a funky bass line with a more chilled focus.
Pressure Traxx presents “Silver Series” – its new vinyl-only sub-label with the first release lined up for April 2014.
On the first release, PTXS 001, you will meet the young talented duo Vinyl Speed Adjust. Hailing from Bucharest, Romania, Eddy and Levii deliver “Groovin’N Moovin”, a three tracks EP that excellently shapes the sound that brought their homeland the well deserved attention, yet breaking the pattern.
