Rob Clouth – Hidden Structures

LSR017

1. The Smallest Measurable Space
2. Cracks in the Firmament
3. Thin Shell, Inner Void
4. The Galaxy Collapsed Into A Point

Pre-order: http://smarturl.it/hidden-structures

Available as limited physical edition and high quality download in all popular physical and digital stores

Release Date: September 18th, 2015

Some structures never reveal their true identity: the Planck length, the centre of blackholes, the space beyond the firmament. There are whole universes we may never understand. But their definitions can change, the unknowable can become knowable, and the hidden can be revealed.

Rob Clouth’s Hidden Structures EP simultaneously represents some of the hardest and most delicate work of his career. Inspired by the dance floor but not beholden to its demands, Hidden Structures is thirty minutes of mind-melting sonic explorations, fusing entrancing melodies with blistering percussion. The EP is a wholly self-contained journey, with waves of kinetic pleasure unveiled within the spacious sound design. Rob Clouth’s Hidden Structures are alternately restrained and fiery, welcoming and threatening. This is music for the sound of both creation and destruction.

Since the release of his Clockwork Atom EP on Leisure System in 2014, Rob Clouth has opened for Jon Hopkins and Squarepusher, played Leisure System parties at Berghain and Dimensions Festival, and the EP was named one of 2014’s best by Bleep.

28.Jun.2015 LSR016: Rob Clouth – Deep Field


LSR016 Packshot

Rob Clouth – Deep Field EP

LSR016

A1. Deep Field
A2. Deep Field (Kowton Remix)
B1. Deep Field (Vessels Remix)

Available as 12″ vinyl and high quality download in all popular physical and digital stores.

Release Date: June 29th, 2015

Barcelona-based Rob Clouth returns to Leisure System with the Deep Field 12”, a stomping showcase of his focused sound design and knack for memorable melodies with additional remixes from Kowton and Vessels.

Deep Field is Clouth’s Leisure System follow-up to the Clockwork Atom EP, which was named one of the top EPs of 2014 by Bleep and introduced his electronic wizardry to a wider audience following prior releases as Vaetxh and under his own name. Debuted on Max Cooper’s Boiler Room and appearing again on his Essential Mix, “Deep Field” is tactile and threatening, with disorienting glitches weaved into the 4/4 structure. The belching low-end brings to mind a talkative machine that’s been muzzled, eager to burst from its restraints.

Livity Sound boss Kowton inverts the original into a gelatinous mass, adding jackhammering drums to the cloudy atmosphere and creating a spacious and stuttering lesson in tension and release. Fresh off the release of their LP Dilate, Leeds band Vessels put their own euphoric electronic magic to work with a housier take, drawing out Clouth’s propulsive percussion with an added dose of lush melodicism that should make it a new favorite for house DJs looking for a spirited twist on the typical.

Deep Field is the third in Leisure System’s new GRIDLOCK series, melding the freaky and functional for modern dance floors.

08.Jun.2015 LSR015: Will Ward – Interval One EP

LSR015 Packshot

Will Ward – Interval One EP

LSR015

A1. Digital Design
A2. Portion feat. Jack Wyllie
B1. Interval One

Available as 12″ vinyl and high quality download in all popular physical and digital stores

Release Date: June 8th, 2015

Leisure System presents rising talent Will Ward’s Interval One EP, the second in our 2015 GRIDLOCK series of dance floor 12″s and the British producer and DJ’s most exuberant record to date.

In addition to two prior solo releases, Will Ward is a member of the esteemed electronic trio Circle Traps along with Jack Wyllie and Duncan Bellamy of Portico. He has previously collaborated with the likes of My Panda Shall Fly and gained support from tastemakers such as Rob Da Bank and Gilles Peterson for dazzling productions that blur the lines between pumping house and windswept techno. The Interval One EP is a strong representation of that sleek sound, with tracks that are bursting with emotion and memorable detail.

“Digital Design” is an aural kaleidoscope, with a shimmering melody line refracted in squiggly arcs next to murmured female vocals and resonant chords. It’s a fittingly varied introduction, drifting between hot and cold poles. “Portion” features Circle Traps member Jack Wyllie, and subtle additions accrue to create waves of unease, while the melody line bounces energetically through a maze of ossified handclaps and buoyant chord stabs. Closing things out, the EP’s title track builds from a woozy introduction to an ebullient peak, as if rolling out of bed and stepping immediately onto a throbbing dance floor. It’s a cleansing and exhilarating feeling, the type of rare emotional response that Will Ward has proven himself thoroughly capable of creating with Interval One.

10.Jul.2015 LS.25: Berlin @ Berghain / Panorama Bar

LS25-poster_550

 

On July 10th Leisure System will celebrate its 25th party at Berghain and Panorama Bar. Can you believe it’s already been seven years since the first party? Since that first bash Leisure System has hosted over 130 different acts, started a record label to further showcase our musical endeavors, and held parties in ten different countries.

With a residency at Fabric, a show on Rinse.FM, and a nearly unanimously-acclaimed debut album, there’s very little Daniel Avery can’t do. He’ll make his Berghain debut here with a set that should highlight his twisted tastes. Considered one of the most electric improvisers around, KiNK will bring his modular-based live set and hybrid house creations to Panorama Bar. Nathan Fake, the Border Community mainstay, will be playing his first live show in Berlin in nearly two years fresh off launching his Cambria Instruments imprint. Mysterious Chicagoans TB Arthur appear after a series of 12”s on Hard Wax and with a forthcoming release on their hometown Argot – expect the unexpected in what will be their world live debut.

After an instant-classic live set at Panorama Bar in 2014, Ceephax Acid Crew returns to LS with a set in Berghain where you can expect 140+ BPM machine madness. A founding member of the Livity Sound collective, Kowton‘s innovative approach to dance music mediates perfectly between functional and surprising. According to rumors, his name will soon be on a Leisure System release, too. Bay Area transplant Avalon Emerson will bring the hazy heatwave delirium upstairs, while techno titan Perc beats the cold metalwork into shape below.

It wouldn’t be a Leisure System party without its founders N>E>D and Barker, as well as label manager Gonsher.

20.Apr.2015 LSR014: JoeFarr – Longanimity EP

LSr014 Packshot

 JoeFarr – Longanimity EP

LSR014

A1. Oleum
A2. Mormon Shuffle
B1. Standard Issue
B2. FS3+4

Available as 12″ vinyl and high quality download in all popular physical and digital stores

Release Date: April 20th, 2015

JoeFarr inaugurates Leisure System’s new GRIDLOCK 12” series with the Longanimity EP, an invigorating exploration of broken techno.

Farr has a diverse history, with three well-received releases on Turbo as well as records with DSNT and Power Vacuum. Few producers can claim to have both remixed Tiga and been remixed by Truss, and the Longanimity EP continues Farr’s recent drift towards streamlined brutality, leavening intense drum programming with crystalline bursts of color. The clinical and kinetic “Oleum” kicks things off and hurdles towards a shatteringly powerful peak, while “Mormon Shuffle” boasts twisted functionality without sacrificing roughness in the brittle loops. The monolithic “Standard Issue” has an aggressive edge enhanced by whiplash percussion, and the broken piano melody of “FS3+4” inverts the joy typically found in that rave standby, preferring to drop the instrument from the fifth floor and let the chords scatter and shatter as they please.

The first release in Leisure System’s 2015 GRIDLOCK series representing our ongoing interest in melding the freaky and the functional on the dance floor, JoeFarr’s Longanimity EP is stocked with tested and tenacious late-night weapons.

LSR013 Packshot

Hubie Davison – Khayyam Grey EP

A1. Khayyam Grey
B1. Get On
B2. Vowels

Buy on Bleep: http://bit.ly/1vikWOv
Buy on Boomkat: http://bit.ly/1yjxefp
Buy via Leisure System: http://bit.ly/1vlPtjw

Available as 12″ vinyl and high quality download in all popular physical and digital stores

Release Date: December 8th, 2014

Hubie Davison returns to Leisure System December 1st, 2014 with the Khayyam Grey EP, his second release for the Berlin-based label and one that marks both his and Leisure System’s funkiest output to date.

Following on his 2013 debut of pastoral electronics and muffled house, Khayyam Grey highlights Davison’s vivid production skills, drawing from a deep well of influences varying from Werkdiscs and Sound Signature to Bill Withers and Otis Redding. The three tracks here are also the strongest representative document yet of the 26-year-old Davison’s DJing, which incorporates all manner of memorable house and assorted wonkiness and has seen him play in Panorama Bar, Corsica Studios, and Gaité Lyrique in Paris amongst numerous others.

The title track takes cues from Daphni’s stand-up-and-shout, sample-heavy house, while “Get On” is a comparatively restrained yet incredibly funky mid-tempo number. “Vowels”, which first appeared as the opening track on the LSR-LSD1 compilation, appears here in extended and altered form, breaking down vocals on a syllabic level from smooth to percussive.

These three tracks of addictive house have been on constant rotation at Leisure System for the past few months – it’s high time everyone else joined the party.

14.Nov.2014 LS.23: Berlin @ Berghain / Panorama Bar

rsz_1rsz_ls-23-berghain-poster

LEISURE SYSTEM.23 / IBADAN NACHT | Berghain / Panorama Bar | November 14th, 2014 | Doors / Start: midnight | Box office only | x-rated

Our last Leisure System of 2014 in Berlin is also the hardest. Leading the pack is legendary mayhem-maker venetian snares, emerging from hibernation in Winnipeg to perform in Berlin for the first time since 2012, following this year’s release of ‘My Love Is A Bulldozer’ on Planet Mu. 25-year-old Brit Tessela is at the forefront of a hardcore revival, securing a residency on BBC Radio One following his sample-flip of Loleatta Holloway on “Hackney Parrot” and two EPs of broken-beat bangers on R&S. This will be Tessela’s solo Berlin debut.

DMX Krew returns to Berghain for a dj set, bringing the unpredictable danceability of a long history with Rephlex Records. Rob Clouth, who released the ‘Clockwork Atom’ EP on Leisure System in April and has since opened for Jon Hopkins, will showcase his unique blend of glitchy beats and lush melodies with a live set – think somewhere between Hopkins and Autechre. We’re also proud to host Bintus, head of Berlin’s ever-impressive label Power Vacuum, who will have plentiful rave bangers in what’s sure to be a searing closing set. Rounding out the lineup is Leisure System label manager and newly-installed resident Gonsher.

LEISURE SYSTEM.23 / BERGHAIN: VENETIAN SNARES | TESSELA | DMX KREW| ROB CLOUTH (live) | BINTUS | GONSHER

IBADAN NACHT / PANORAMA BAR: NICKY SIANO | ROBERT OWENS (live) | JEROME SYDENHAM | AYBEE | KATSUYA

10.Sep.2014 Leisure System x Houndstooth @ Studio Spaces, London

LS_x_HT_Flyer_v2

Berghain residency and Berlin-based record label Leisure System goes head-to-head with Fabric’s in-house label Houndstooth on November 22nd at Studio Spaces, in conjunction with the Hydra. It’s Berlin vs. London, and with a lineup like this, everyone’s a winner.

Studio Spaces will be split to accommodate artists associated with both Houndstooth and Leisure System, plus special guests we couldn’t resist tossing in as extras.

Headlining the Leisure System room is Clark, who will be presenting his mind-rearranging Phosphor live set. Leisure System will also be bringing together legendary electro duo Dopplereffekt and inimitable sonic adventurer Objekt, who recently released the split Hypnagogia 12″ on Leisure System. Perc provides a dose of nasty techno in addition to an appearance from Luke Slater under his L.B. Dub Corp alias, with Leisure System resident DJ N>E>D rounding out the room.

Houndstooth highlights four of their own acts, each boasting recent album releases of exceptional quality. Akkord will channel the smoky electronics of their self-titled debut LP, while Call Super, fresh off his debut album Suzi Ecto, pushes boundaries with his kaleidoscopic techno. Joining the fray are Throwing Snow and Second Storey, formerly known as Al Tourettes, whose Double Divide debut LP was lovingly described by Houndstooth as “music for the mind and feet.” Special guests in the Houndstooth room include Warp mainstays Plaid performing live plus the always-impressive electronic wizard Luke Vibert
