Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio – Pukwudgie – Available now on Platipus Records [2 week Beatport exclusive]

1. Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio – Pukwudgie (Original Mix)
2. Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio – Pukwudgie (Gai Barone Remix)
3. Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio – Pukwudgie (Barry Jamieson’s Mono Electric Orchestra Remix)

Across the global spectrum of electronic music, two names need no introduction… Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio, progressive, innovative creators for nearly three decades. They return with another breathtaking, visionary template.

Following their collaborative debut ‘Oblivion’ on Digweed’s Bedrock last October, the duo have consequently shelled us with deep, immersive late night delights. First, they encouraged us to ‘Wake Up’ on Yousef’s Circus Recordings, then they joined forces with the Bedrock boss and Nick Muir and we were all transfixed by the ‘Close Your Eyes’ project, (a release which hit number one in the Beatport Progressive Chart and is still climbing the Beatport Techno Chart). Now they present another sense-startling slice… this time on one of the most iconic UK electronic indies of all time, Platipus, and they’re rolling deep in esteemed remix company.

Entitled ‘Pukwudgie’, once again it’s oceanic in its sense of depth and scale. Rippling, warm, full of surprises, just on the right side of trippy and hypnotic and ultimately timeless, ‘Pukwudgie’ captivates, and is as rich as the folklore that inspired the title. The same can be said for the remixes; Italian stallion Gai Barone tessellates the patterns with an epic nine minute odyssey that’s drenched in a soaking wet bassline and offers more twists than a plate of spaghetti while Barry Jamieson dives to even deeper depths with a ten minute opus that breaks down into the realms of delicate classic piano before gradually building up again. His years behind the scenes working with Sasha and Charlie May shining through his deft grasp of restraint and subtlety, he brings this pivotal release to a fitting and poignant end. Time to spread the word.

Martin Merkel – BiPolar / Parthenon [Platipus Records]
1. Martin Merkel – BiPolar [Club Mix)
2. Martin Merkel – Parthenon
3. Martin Merkel – BiPolar

Following his highly acclaimed album Constantin, Martin unleashes his inner BiPolar; a brooding deep, melodic techno excursion that expertly manages to float effortlessly into the ether whilst delivering on ground level with focus and purpose.

Parthenon, meanwhile, is one of the many stand-out tracks taken from his excellent Constantin album, which was inspired from the heart after the recent birth of his son, Constantin. Parthenon soars delicately through the air and then drops like thunder.

(Platipus Records) PLATMU26LP
Format: Digital
Global Release: 12.03.18 / Beatport Exclusive 26.02.18

Martin Merkel emerged from the shadows at the end of last year with his first single release for Simon Berry’s Platipus Records. This was an introduction and taste of his self-described brand of “Soulful Techno”, steeped in complex emotions and with an attention to musical detail that comes from many years of dedication to his chosen craft. The exciting collection of music is now revealed in its entirety as his ‘Constantin’ album – a creative project inspired by his emotional journey over the past year and honouring the recent birth of his son. Martin’s joining forces with the legendary Platipus imprint also marks a bold new direction in the label’s evolution, as its creative ethos develops in an exciting Tech House / Melodic Techno direction.

A somewhat mysterious figure within the European Techno scene, this maverick German DJ/Producer has often stepped away from the egotistical glare of publicity, preferring his music to do the talking. Martin Merkel is a master of sonic excellence and musicality, his creations have previously often crept out on the likes of Cinematique, Bonzai, Secondary Tones, JOOF, Monkey Business, Neverending and his own Shelter 54 imprint. Now, under the auspicious guidance of Platipus Records the most exciting new chapter of his career is about to begin.

The album opens with the almost tranquil, low-slung groove of title track ‘Contantin’. Its teasing, hypnotic pulsating motifs and distinctive layers of intricate, heart melting, melodies are the perfect entrée for what is to come. Whether its the bubbling percussion and irresistible, soaring energy of ‘Wonderful Life’, the immediately infectious ‘Little Wonder’, or the glorious symphonic synths of ‘Tiefentaucher’, Martin Merkel’s music has a timeless quality that makes exceptional music become so treasured.

Martin Merkel creates his own unique, masterful blend of electronic music by utilising switching, ever-evolving elements as he layers atmospheric excellence over deeply powerful percussive grooves – check the fizzing dynamism of ‘Parthenon’. He is equally comfortable changing down a gear for the snappy, techy ‘Der Riese Milz’, diving into the darkness on ‘Seelenfarben’, and building superb elements of growling tension through ‘Black Light’. Every track is an homage to the intense emotional power that can be expressed and transmitted through synthesized machine music, none more so that the towering, stunning finale ‘Patagonia’.

Originally inspired as an artist by the experimental attitude of Italo Disco and the embryonic Techno scene, via parties at the likes if Dorian Grey and Omen (Frankfurt) and Tresor (Berlin), Martin Merkel’s nascent career saw him develop an early love of analogue synthesisers – and saw him fill his studio with a desirable collection of Moog, Roland and Waldorf machinery. In recent years he has moved towards a more compact, travel-friendly digital studio set-up, but his love of synthesisers remains a defining characteristic of his uniquely distinctive musical output today and his ‘Constantin’ album is a perfect testament to that love.

Union Jack – ‘Cactus’ 2017 Remixes

1. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Jonno Brien Remix)

2. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Adam Kent Remix)

3. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (OOOD Remix)

4. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Airwave’s Dark and Long Mix)

5. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Quietman Remix)

6. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Original Mix Remastered)

Originally released in 1994, ‘Cactus’ is regarded as one of Union Jack’s finest moments. 23 years on, despite a plethora of requests, no remixes have ever been commissioned…until now.

Irish Techno DJ/Producer and rising star Jonno Brien originally got the ball rolling last year when he sent in his remix out of the blue. It was quite simply too good to be ignored. Carl Cox, who was one of only a handful of DJ’s to be sent the mix, hammered it worldwide and included it as one of his highlights at the Closing Party @ Space, Ibiza.

Adam Kent serves up a driving semi-spangled tech houser.

Psychedelic sorcerers OOOD remain faithful to the prickly original but slam it into the 21st planet and beyond.

Airwave’s Laurent reappears with an extended gloaming exploration into Cactaceae cornucopia.

After a long hiatus, Quietman’s Laurence and Wilf emerge from a shimmering mirage with a sublime slice of desert sunrise.

‘Cactus – 2017 Remixes’ will be released 12th June 2017 on Beatport. Global release 27th June 2017 on Platipus.

Martin Merkel ‘Little Wonder’ / ‘Constantin’ OUT NOW on Platipus Records with Remix by Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio
Global release today: Available on all portals.
1. Little Wonder (Original Mix)
2. Little Wonder (Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio Remix)
3. Constantin (Original Mix)
(Platipus Records) PLATMU97
Format: Digital
Release Date: 27 November 2017
This ‘Little Wonder’ / ‘Constantin’ release is an introduction and taste of what is to come from Martin Merkel in 2018 with the release of his ‘Constantin’ album – a creative project inspired by his emotional journey over the past year and honouring the recent birth of his son. His joining forces with the legendary Platipus Records marks a bold new direction in the label’s evolution, as its creative ethos develops in an exciting Tech House / Melodic Techno direction. The inclusion here of a dynamic remix of ‘Little Wonder’ by recent Bedrock (‘Oblivion’) stars Luke Brancaccio & Simon Berry (Union Jack / Art Of Trance) is an excellent further indicator of the label’s future sonic landscape.
The immediately infectious ‘Little Wonder’ has a timeless quality that makes exceptional music become so treasured. Martin Merkel creates a masterful blend of switching elements as he layers atmospheric excellence over a deeply powerful percussive groove. Building on the original’s complexity, Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio proceed to lift the track to another level with their remix. A sophisticated, pulsing groove, blended with teasing acidic motifs, this is a master-class in subtle genius as they build a voyage into the realms of peak-time Techno with a distinct filmic, emotive edge. This new duo’s recent output is already finding favour with the likes of John Digweed, Kolsch, Yotto, Nick Warren, Guy Mantzur, Coyu, Victor Ruiz and many other top DJs; and with a new single lined up on Yousef’s Circus label for the New Year, this remix is a taste of more excellence to come.
In perfect contrast to the infectious energy of ‘Little Wonder’, and completing this introductory package perfectly, Martin Merkel’s delightfully different ‘Constantin’ is built on an almost tranquil, low-slung groove, enhanced with hypnotic pulsating motifs and distinctive layers of intricate, heart-melting, melody rich, mood changing moments – a perfect teaser for his album coming in January 2018.
Originally inspired as an artist by the experimental attitude of Italo Disco and the embryonic Techno scene, via parties at the likes if Dorian Grey and Omen (Frankfurt) and Tresor (Berlin), Martin Merkel’s nascent career saw him develop an early love of analogue synthesisers – and saw him fill his studio with a desirable collection of Moog, Roland and Waldorf machinery.

Originally released back in ’95, ‘Octopus’ is one of Simon Berry’s strongest Art Of Trance releases to date. Later that year, it was remixed by R&S artist Capricorn (of 20Hz fame) and Man With No Name, so it seemed that after 20 years new remixes were surely justified.

Italy’s fast rising star Gai Barone has delivered quite possibly the finest remix he’s ever done with his Gallery Remix. Not only that, he decided to do a second remix for good measure.

Israel’s Yuli from Perfect Stranger serves up a very solid mix which stays closer to the original. Frenchman, Rick Pier O’Neil returns with another sublime slice of sunrise.

Englishman, Matt Holliday offers a spacious and textured soundscape for his interpretation and is followed by a remastered version of the original.
