Nordic Trax brings you another promising talent in Newcastle producer Cristoph. Rich with experience in deejaying and musicianship, Cristoph’s ‘Big H’ EP comes forged as an effective collection of bass-driven Deep House that’s been road tested during his sets in Ibiza and across Europe. A relative newcomer, Cristoph has already had a #1 on Defected which found its way onto Radio 1 and in Groove Armada’s season-closing set at We Love (Space). Meanwhile, longtime NT supporter Nacho Marco delivered his knock-out remix of Big H which made its world premiere at the closing of Sonar 2013 broadcast on national radio across Spain. The future looks bright for Cristoph.

ARTIST: DJ Ino
TITLE: Smoking Deluxe EP
CAT: NT073
RELEASE: Out Everywhere Feb 19, 2013
STYLE: Deep House, Nu Disco, Chill Out

From the Northwest of Spain Galician House hero DJ Ino brings us three tracks of deep goodness with the velvet-covered Smoking Deluxe EP.

DJ Ino has been pushing his deep sound to the world since the mid 1990s. Always a friend to Nordic Trax, this debut EP for us shows him flexing his considerable muscle in the slower tempo regions. From the catchy Nu Disco vibes of the title track, to the dub elements on the chilled-out ‘One Dollar Pizza’, Ino’s sound reflects his years of experience as a producer & deejay.

Based in La Coruña, DJ Ino has releases on Dennis Ferrer’s mighty Objektivity label, Seasons Recordings, Café Del Mar, Justified Cause, Release Music and his own label House Café Music. His discography includes a healthy collection of genres – mainly house, but also jazz, disco, and even a full-length hip-hop album – all with a sound that is unmistakably his own.


"The disco side of Nordic Trax! Love it" - Giom
"Dopeness! 10/10" - Nick Holder
"Nice deep groover! That's some good pizza too! 9/10" - Mark Farina

    NEW RELEASE: GAVIN BOYCE 'Divine In You'
 

 

ARTIST: Gavin Boyce
TITLE: Divine In You
CAT: NT071
RELEASE: Out now via Traxsource, everywhere May 22, 2012

Our favourite Irishman Gavin Boyce delivers his biggest track to date with the very slinky disco-groover ‘Divine In You’. Superbly programmed beats, a deep as the ocean bassline, sweeping pads and just enough of a vocal hook look set to make this a deep house anthem. Cork deep house legends Fish Go Deep join in the fun with a more energetic and driving remix, while Boyce adds a funky instrumental and alternate mix for house lovers of all shades. A big piano-led bonus track ‘On You’ only serves to make this release even more unmissable.

    PRESS ROOM: Georgia Straight, Resident Advisor, CBC MUSIC
 

Vancouver's Georgia Straight sat down with our own Luke McKeehan in advance of the 15th Anniversary this weekend.

"Nordic Trax label head Luke McKeehan is still a DJ above all.

Modesty gets you nowhere in the music business. That’s especially true for record-label operators, folks whose survival depends on their ability to sell not just music, but a whole lifestyle. Think of Richard Branson (Virgin), Tony Wilson (Factory), or Rick Rubin (Def Jam)—each a mercurial celebrity in his own right, each a man whose label seemed like an extension of his larger-than-life personality.

Like those iconic companies, Vancouver’s longest-running dance-music label is a reflection of its founder...."

ARTIST: Mature Minds Feat Rankin Youth
TITLE: Concrete Castles
RELEASE: Out now everywhere

CAT: NT068

High-powered deep house anthem featuring vocals from Rankin Youth and mixes by Halo, Miguel Graca and Rise Ashen. Upfront support from Kenny Dope, Mark Knight, Luciano, Robert Owens, Kaskade, The Revenge, Nic Fanciulli, Mr V, Yass, Giom, Lars B, Nacho Marco, Dino & Terry, Tommy Largo, Jeannie Hopper, Demarkus Lewis, Atnarko, Nikola Batalya & many more.


Mature Minds is a collaboration that has been slowly brewing between Trevor Walker and Nordic Trax label boss Luke McKeehan since early 2010. After a vocal session with soul and reggae singer Gary Moore, aka Rankin Youth of Soul Jazz Orchestra fame, ‘Concrete Castles’ was born. The final mixdown involved Montreal-based producer Miguel Graca who completes the Mature Minds line-up and also contributes his own version. Nordic Trax enlisted the services of long-time musical friends Halo Vargo and Rise Ashen both of whom delivered deadly interpretations of the original. The end result: 6 sparkling versions of this high-powered anthem which glide easily between deep, tech house and broken beat, all the while carrying a heavy message for those whose minds are open enough to hear it.

Three extended clips from the Drippin Wet EP: http://snd.sc/aY8aq6

Los Angeles producer Derek Dunbar drops his debut release, a 6-track EP for DJ Heather's Blackcherry imprint. A versatile musician and seasoned DJ, you can hear the producer's diverse influences on DRIPPIN WET. The smooth release ranges from the distinct underground house grooves of ‘Drippin Wet' & ‘Feels Right', to the soulful hip-hop-inspired downtempo of ‘Love of Mine' & ‘In Too Deep'.

IDJ Review:

Five tracks plus one remix from LA-residing Detroit boy Dunbar, on DJ Heather's label. Some of the tracks here, great as they are, would really belong in the funky/soul page - if we had one. The title cut, 'Feels Right' and 'Played Out', however, will all be at home on deep house dancefloors. The likes of Farina and JT Donaldson are fans already.

Stripped down edit of the lead track from the Calgary Connection EP http://snd.sc/cmONZI


Well saddle up and prepare to get your freak on as two of the biggest names in Canadian house music -- both from the Rocky Mountain city of Calgary -- collaborate for the first time ever on THE CALGARY CONNECTION.

The four-tracker bumps from funky to deep jazzy and takes some unexpected turns along the way. Neighbour's disco, funk & breaks influence combine with Delerious' dubby, tech house background to deliver high octane dancefloor bombs.

In only a few years Neighbour has a made a name for himself with work on Alphabet, Kinjo, Kolour, Fort Knox, Jalapeno, Super Hi-Fi and his own Homebreakin' Records. He is also a mainstay at the world-famous Shambhala Music festival every summer in Salmo BC, where he plays to both the house and funk crowds, sometimes with a guitar, and sometimes in a Speedo.

Jon Delerious is a Nordic Trax mainstay and his previous releases for the label have caught the eye of deejays and tastemakers worldwide, including support from Mark Farina, Ken ECB, Giom, Kelvin K, Nacho Marco, C-Rock, Ross Couch, Lee Burridge and Johnny Fiasco among many others.

CAT #: NT065

ARTIST: Daniel Cummins
TITLE: No Jack City EP

STYLE: Deep House, Funky House
RELEASE: Winter 2010

Available now at Beatport, Traxsource, Junodownload, Stompy, Whatpeoplelay, iTunes & other fine digital music stores.-- CLICK HERE TO PREVIEW & PURCHASE

Irish teen sensation Daniel Cummins burst on the scene in 2007 when one of his first demos was selected by Mark Farina for inclusion on his ‘Live In Tokyo’ compilation for San Francisco’s OM Records. With ‘No Jack City’ the 19 year-old from Cork joins the big boys delivering his debut EP for Nordic Trax, including a slamming remix from the always-reliable JT Donaldson.

With very few productions the Irish teenager has garnered some serious praise. Plays and support for this EP have come from all sorts, including house heavyweights Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer, Miguel Migs, Fish Go Deep, Jon Cutler, Chuck Love, LawnChair Generals, and of course Mr. Farina who championed Daniel’s productions out of the gate.

For fans of classic 90’s deep and jazzy house, this release is a treat. Dispensing with all the trendy-ness of the current big room house madness, the four originals here are extremely well-constructed tracks that work out to a mature yet danceable groove. Suitable early, late, on the headphones, in a lounge vibe or at a warehouse party, there’s something for everyone on this EP. JT Donaldson rounds things out delivering a somewhat tougher mix of ‘Shuffle’ to the equation, and satisfying jackers on both coasts and all points in between. JT is known for his many releases on a list of labels including Fair Park, Afterhours, Cyclo, Icon, Robsoul, Distance, LowDown, Amenti, Large, NT & his own Gallery Music. He also produces under the monikers Dirty Kicks, J Tilla, 2nd Shift [w/ Tim Shumaker], and Undercover Agency [w/ Lance Desardi].

RELEASE Out now everywhere
STYLE Deep, Tech

Digital download availble now here NT Digital

Buy the vinyl now at Juno NT061 - 12"


Debut for Nordic Trax from rising French star Kirby, dropping his most accomplished EP to date. With previous releases for Tango, Chillin, Elevation, Connected, Motion, Kolour & Onethirty, and remixes for Asad Risvi among others, Kirby is quickly make a name for himself.

Advance deejay support for this EP has been overwhelming, with rave reviews and support from the likes of Fish Go Deep [Defected], Marlon D [Underground Collective, Strictly Rhythm], DJ Harri [Subclub], Nacho Marco [Freerange, Loudeast], Kaskade [Ultra], Giom [Bobby & Klein], Inland Knights [Drop], LawnChair Generals, DJ Diz and Jay Tripwire among many others.

First track and A-side on the vinyl is ‘Nightwriter’, a dark, brooding, big-room house number with a remarkable breakdown and tough beats that will do the number on any dancefloor. Lead by a driving sub bass and spacey chords, this is a techy-but-deep driver. Believe it.

Next up from Monsieur Kirby is ‘Headmovin’, a funky, bumpin’ number with a mellow and uplifting vibe that will work perfectly in small club with a proper deep vibe. A very tightly mixed groove, when the bassline drops, you’ll be hard-pressed not to find your head movin’.

Last on the ep, but most certainly not least, is ‘Leaves’. This one has been receiving widespread support from an eclectic mix of deejays & tastemakers, ranging from proggy big-room players, to Irish house heroes Fish Go Deep who proclaimed: “Absolutely love ‘Leaves’. Beautiful melody and a proper deep, pulsing groove. More like this please!”

ARTIST: GAVIN BOYCE

TITLE: FACE DOWN EP

FORMAT: NT060 - DD, VINYL

Gavin Boyce springs back into action with his sophomore effort on NT. Following the success of his Nordic Trax debut ‘Sometimes It's Me Ep' [NT054 – released Feb 2008], the young Irish producer is in fine form on this three-track EP. His previous NT release received support from the likes of Laurent G arnier, Nacho Marco, Fish G o Deep, DJ Harri, Mazi & Kaskade among others, and early support for this one has been just as strong.

Kicking things off is ‘Antitrust' – a darker, big-room number for fans of Objektivity, Halo/CityDeep, Tiger Stripes & Danism. Lots of space in the mix for a looping build that reaches its peak before a long release & breakdown. Mature sensibilities yet directed straight at the dancefloor – this is modern house music.

Next up G avin delivers another gem with ‘First Movements' – which comes across on first impressions as a straight deep number. The tune is driven by a massive kick & lovely hook which takes a most unexpected turn a third of the way through: evolving into a decidedly more stripped-back affair. When the second hook drops, it's sheer joy.

Rounding things out is ‘Face Down', the genesis for this project which originally appeared on Luke McKeehan's critically-acclaimed compilation 'Many Shades Of House Volume 2' [NT057 - released June 2008]. Solid beats and a deliciously hooky piano-line give this track an old school vibe for the end-of-the-night crowd. Before you know it the strings have dropped, and its 1989 all over again. Tune!

Househeads will know Josuha aka Iz from one of his many aliases, including Stereo People, Dubwise, Iz & Diz, Free Energy (Guidance no. 1) and J-Boom among others. And he’s no stranger to Nordic Trax, kicking it off with us back in 2000 with the now-classic ‘New CPU Experience’ (Nordic Trax 011), a collaboration with Luke McKeehan and a seminal release in the label’s early catalogue.

On the aptly-titled ‘Baked Goodies EP’, Berlin meets San Francisco as Iz returns with his first original release since 2005! You’ll find all the movement and spacey funk of that classic ‘Joshua sound’, with a whole lot of bleeps, blips and deep breakdowns to satisfy modern listeners around the globe. Both mixes of ‘Lil’ Muffin’ will get the floor rocking, while ‘Cookies’ is a little lighter on the late night / early morning tip, but we’ll leave the superlatives to you….

"Kelvin K is no stranger to Nordic Trax and is back once again to help commemorate the label's 50th release. All four offerings are widely different, but two quickly turn ears. 'Wanting You' is a beautiful example of working simplicity to your favour; gorgeous chords moodily morph throughout for an aural journey that deviates little, but delivers abundantly. 'Dirty Basement' on the flip goes West Coast with thick percussion and a plucky bass that make for one jazzed-out smoky track." URB

THANKS TO EVERYBODY WHO CAME OUT TO OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY ON SUNDAY MAY 20TH 2007 AT THE COMMODORE

Head over to Samurai.fm to stream the sets. This was one legendary night for the headz...

the actual order of the night was as follows:
Dana D > Gavin Froome Live > H-Foundation (Halo then HippE) > Fiasco > Diz > Luke + Jay (back to back)

...because the recordings are from the sound board at the Commodore we don't have all of everybody's sets, and there is some distortion, and everybody brought it...but DIZ fucking rocked it!

ARTIST: JAY TRIPWIRE
TITLE: GEMINI SOUL
FORMAT: NT052 - CD, mp3, WAV
US release date: APRIL 24, 2007

"Jay Tripwire is responsible for some of the most exciting underground house music to come out of North America in recent years." - DJ Magazine

Finally after 10 years behind many of house music's most creative productions, agent provocateur and space cowboy, Jay Tripwire releases his debut album on Canada’s leading underground house label Nordic Trax. With ‘Gemini Soul’, Jay's slips in to his aural space pod taking us on a journey to the cosmic roots of house, bringing into full effect the evolution that his production career has taken. Lifting off with the deep productions of “Absorb” & “Body to Body”, through dancefloor burners like “Call and Answer” and “Tokyo Space Noodles”, Jay has delivered an album that is bound to be banged out in the clubs, but still satisfy any cosmonaut on their home hi-fi.

NT048 IN STORES & ONLINE NOW

ARTIST: CHRIS HARRIS & DOM MARTIN
TITLE: THE MADNAIL EP
FORMAT: NT048- 12", mp3, WAV

"The Glasgow connection heads west to Vancouver for four monster deep house cuts. The two superfunky versions of 'Get Involved.. are good enough but don't, on pain of death, miss the trackier, altogether tougher 'Dig It... Also with two versions, one is sleazy, bleepy and techy, the other quirky, bouncy and just as tough. When it comes to the underground, Glasgow rules."

- IDJ

"Two fast rising stars on the Scottish underground house scene out on Nordic Trax with some jackin’ Chicago style beats, techy elements and big room attitude. “Get Involved” includes a vocal sample that penetrates the floor and the beats don’t let up for the entire duration, “Dig It” instead is a bit more dirtier and to the bone with some trippy touches that make all the difference. Interesting."
- Discoid

See what the media types have to say...

"Vancouver's prolific house music purveyor returns to Nordic Trax to drop this quality EP. Niceness from the North, my friends!" BPM Magazine

"Mr Prolific himself is in sparkling form here. The pick might be the saxy, jazzy blissed out 'Cu Bownse’, a class fusion of West Coast dub and Chi-town depth, or its similarly jazzy deep Gavin Froome and Luke McKeehan Double Bogey Mix." IDJ

Artist: Kelvin K Feat. Dom Thomspon
Title: 2 Doors Down [Remixes: HippE, Members Only, Kelvin K]


Three new remixes of Kelvin Kresege's deep houser here and with Hipp-E and Members Only there's much to look forward to. Hipp-E takes it down his usual path of deep disco-flavoured tribal and adds some shimmeringly cool Latin riffs, while MO's is pure late-night smokery. Best of all though is K's own, a sprightly summery affair that's got Buzzin Fly stamped all over it. (IDJ Magazine UK, June 2006)

Artist: Murray Richarson

Title: Let It Rock EP

"Murray's two deep housers would be special enough on their own but add to them a remix par excellence from Gavin Froome and you've got Nordic's best release since their last. Froome's reversion of ‘Pink Champagne' shuffles, booms, clonks and funks in all the right places, is old skool one minute, defiantly noughty the next. Crank up the smoke and set the strobe to 11."

Jazzy Eyewear 'Doin Wrong'

If I happen to meet Fabian Giannattasio (aka DJ Mood and Jazzy Eyewear) and his glasses are stylish, I'll be disappointed. Which is never how I feel about his music, and this single is no exception. 'Doing Wrong' is super spacious, letting the minimal bass and tracky drums do all the talking.

(XLR8R Magazine 92)

         
 

   

Bassline Road 'You Will Find It'

Kelvin K 'Poundland Pimpin EP'
This Vancouver label’s top tier underground status is confirmed via two excellent singles: Colorado duo Bassline Road’s raw dub-funk, and Kelvin K’s gritty, Rhodes-soloing tracks. Bassline Road (also of Deep House Soldiers fame) employs handclaps, conga riffs, and electric bass over moody-but-sexy slow and low 4/4 disco rhythms. Moulton vet Kelvin brings that famed SF studio’s sound to his new Brighton, UK digs on a smooth, propulsive, and jazzy gem.

(XLR8R Magazine 89)

         
 
   

Kelvin K 'Poundland Pimpin EP'

Kelvin was actually born in the UK, brought up in San Francisco and now lives in Brighton… Here on his debut release for Nordic Trax you can almost hear his various musical influences spread over 3 lovely house tracks that are just right for the floor. Deep house grooves, lovely Rhodes workings, a good solid groove and some vocal back up that is just enough to set the mood. Another very fine release from this great label – get looking for it in the shops!

(Discoid Magazine (Italy) June 2005)

 
 
   

Bassline Road'You Will Find It'

Bassline Road is actually a collaboration between Matthew Bandy (Deep House Soldiers) and Jon Nedza (Community Recordings). Three versions for you to enjoy of this percussive led deep house track with its spacey keys, vocal snippets, throbbing bassline and pounding groove; ‘Solar Drums Mix', ‘Original Mix' and ‘Intro/Outro' – all great, now its over to you for the choice of which to play!

Spring 05 News

- Kelvin K's '2 Doors Down' is on the top of the downloads chart at Stompy.com. The digital distributor of all things deep & funky hosts some of the latest NT releases, and this one from Kelvin K has been tearing things up since it dropped 2 weeks back.

- NT hosted another successful long-weekend bash this past May 22nd as we welcomed House heavyweights Mark Farina & DJ Heather back to Vancouver. The event was in celebration of Mr. Farina's Mushroom Jazz 5 (Om Records) -- the best yet, if anyone's asking -- with Heather in support of her new mix for Fabric (Fabric 21). Held at Vancouver's infamous Commodore Ballroom, the packed event was a real treat for music lovers & dancers alike as Mark & Heather blew the roof off! To view photos of the event go to this album. If you're in Vancouver, don't forget DIZ @ VODA this Friday June 3.

- Well we made it back from Miami in one piece. Thanks to all who made The Goods (3rd Annual) a great success. Definitely no thanks to the Miami 'Sound' Police for shutting down a permitted party an hour early...but hey, we had fun. I wish I had a picture of the enforcement lady tapping Pete Moss on the shoulder -- no parking on the dancefloor indeed! Click here to see some pictures from the party and beyond.

Demarkus Lewis 'Parallels Ep'
Dallas superhero Demarkus Lewis is back on Nordic Trax with another installment of soul good music. Having made quite an impact with his debut on Nordic Trax in 2003, the mellow fellow gets busy with this deep three-tracker for NT. Find this record in the crates of Harri (Subclub), Gilles Peterson (BBC), Murray Richardson, Raoul Belmans (Swirl People), Juan Nunez (Wax), Chris Harris (Tronicsole) and a whole bunch more. Read more & listen



NT040-CD  Many Shades of House
Coming soon to a record store near you, 'Many Shades of House' will hit the streets in North America July 13th. Mixed & compiled by Luke McKeehan, it's the latest in a line of stellar releases from 'Canada's finest label' (Blues & Soul). Featuring tracks from House music heavyweights Troublemen, Harley&Muscle, Swayzak, Halo Varga and Demarkus Lewis, includes  a bonus cd of un-mixed NT classics!  But don't take our word for it, read more:

"Label love is such a sweet addiction. You see the label, love the latest release and the love affair continues. It's like that with Nordic Trax and me. I fell for their so not boring Canadian house back in 2001 when McKeehan introduced Morgan Page's ‘All I Need' and the vocals of Colette. I was hooked. Come 2004 and that hook is still there with this latest Nordic gem. When Home And Gardens, Gavin Froome and Marques Wyatt join the mix the party just has to be had. Yet again Nordic in the capable hands of Mr McKeehan have proved deep house is anything but boring, predictable or past it. One listen to the bass line of Rithma's ‘The Gypsie Dance' and you'll be falling."
