The latest addition to the Twisted Frequency roster is a legend of the UK progressive house scene. We snapped up 'Acceptance' for Twisted and - as Ian's first release in many years - it is a something of a pivotal moment. The original is classic Ossia - house music, with an upbeat progressive feel, sounds crafted and mixed with the same expert attention to detail as Ian's DJ mixes. On the remix, James Harcourt takes the main themes and works them into dark, brooding, moody techno - adding strings for a slight emotional shift.
TF debutants Tesla & Plastic Robots bring the floor-filling techno for 2015. Tesla's progressive approach has inspired a string of successful releases on heavyweight techno labels like Stereo Seven Plus, Neurotraxx and 1605 - and with "The Cats", brings his trademark powerful yet minimal percussive techno which shifts gear unrelentingly, with piercing synths and a menacing bassline. James Harcourt takes the core elements of the track and works them into a melodic masterpiece, shimmering and grooving in equal measures.
A fresh 3 track E.P from label head James Harcourt to kick-start 2015. A strong, diverse E.P has found favour with Guy J, Simon Patterson, Lützenkirchen, Spartaque, Ian Ossia, Nick Muir and many others. Title track "Infected" was aired during James' India tour of September to great responses - whilst Nutation has been shortlisted for a prestigious Ministry of Sound compilation for release during Spring 2015.
Take Me Down In The Name Of Love
Hot on the heels of debut album 'The Weak & The Wounded' comes a new original track "Take Me Down In The Name Of Love". This is a quirky, moody, dark, robotic vocalised electronic-tech fest which cannot be categorised easily. There is also a dub mix included which takes the track into darker, driving techno territory - suitable for the bigger arenas.
Music For The Weak & The Wounded
It is over ten years since James Harcourt first sat at a cheap computer in a tiny flat in Deptford to record his first track, during the cooldown after the fire of the late 90's progressive house scene. Fast forward to the start of 2014 and he delivers a debut album focused on a richer, more melodic and intricate sound, entitled "Music For the Weak And The Wounded" - the title inspired by the more extreme experiences of the late 90's club scene in London, a period which remains a core inspiration on his work.
Twisted Frequencies Volume 6
The 6th checkpoint release in the long running Twisted Frqeuencies series contains 11 DJ friendly individual tracks along with a carefully crafted continuous mix, featuring exclusive a new and exclusive track from James Harcourt & Amber Long 'Profunda Navitas', the unreleased remix of Filth & Splendour's 'Darkness Fades' and a re-touch of James Harcourt's 'Tension'.
FM Radio Gods - Mosquito
Canadian duo FM Radio Gods join Twisted Frequency with a debut release which moves into the beefier realms of outdoor techno. Acid squelches and chunky rhythms are the order of the day here. On the remix, Neurodriver takes the mainlines and serves up his trademark fat low end and heavily modulated synth action for a real banger of a remix.
Victor Ruiz & Alex Stein - Aware / Out Of Control
Having first appeared on Twisted back in 2009 with a big selling remix of James Harcourt's 'Neutron', Brazil's Victor Ruiz returns with a fresh original E.P featuring Alex Stein on co-production. Victor is known for a stripped back, dancefloor tailored sound which has attracted the praise of high profile DJ's far and wide. These two tracks have a strongly electronic feel and have gained support from all over.
