Rob Clouth – Clockwork Atom EP
LSR011

A1. Clockwork Atom
B1. Islands of Glass
B2. The Descent

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

Release Date: April 28th, 2014

Rob Clouth’s Clockwork Atom EP, the eleventh release from Berlin-based record label, Berghain residency, and nomadic party-starters Leisure System, is a triumph of emotional composition and twisted beats. Recalling Jon Hopkins at his fiercest and Autechre at their most melodic, Clouth has put together something special for peaktime and morning-afters alike, three timeless tracks with bass to massage your ears and melodies to warm your heart.

Clouth’s creative process is driven by an endless thirst for evolution, resulting in diverse tracks still linked with a thread of re-occurring themes. Title track “Clockwork Atom” is the standout here, balancing thick sub-bass and a player piano line recurring in waves of bliss. The track disintegrates and dissolves before locking back into place, pitting lush movements against menacing rhythms.

“Islands of Glass” is the cold stare to “Clockwork Atom’s” warm embrace, beginning with a richly harmonic undulating texture before jerking the listener across hilly and alien terrain. “The Descent” is slower but no less bedazzling, like a clone coming off an assembly line and being blinded by the sun for the first time. There’s certainly a menace at work in all these tracks, but it’s softened by the entrancing atmospheres. Welcome to the machine – you’ll like it here.

The Barcelona-based glitch expert Rob Clouth has released music under both his given name and the alias Vaetxh on labels such as Traum Schallplatten, King Deluxe, and Detroit Underground. In addition to Clouth’s music work, he’s also a relentless tinkerer and audio architect, designing multiple pieces of experimental software and hardware, including recent work with digitally painting waveforms. This release on Leisure System arose from a desire to better integrate his two distinct recording aliases in one project, emphasizing the dancefloor-focused elements without abandoning past experimentation.

28.Mar.2014 LS.21: Berlin @ Berghain / Panorama Bar

LS21: Berlin

 

LEISURE SYSTEM.21 / FINEST FRIDAY | Berghain / Panorama Bar | March 28th, 2014 | Doors / Start: midnight | Box office only | x-rated

When Disclosure played Leisure System for the first time in 2012, brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence had already scored two Top 20 hits in the UK. In the two years since they’ve experienced astronomical pop success, with Settle debuting at number one on the UK Albums chart and receiving Grammy and Mercury Prize nominations. At Leisure System they’ll be doing something a little different – DJing as opposed to their usual live show, which is sure to highlight their knowledge of classic UK house and garage with the eclectic energy we prize at Leisure System.

Joining the pop behemoths is Axel Willner aka The Field, who will be playing a new solo club set focused on material from his latest exercise in ecstatic loops Cupid’s Head. Also on the bill are shadowy UK outfit Akkord, who released the critically acclaimed self-titled LP on Fabric’s in-house label Houndstooth and will be bringing razzy rave and suitably deep, dubby electronics in a dual DJ set. Rounding out the lineup in Berghain will be our Leisure System residents Barker (of Ostgut Ton’s Barker & Baumecker) and the always-unpredictable Discipline.

Our friends at Finest Friday have brought in a lineup that functions as Leisure System’s emotional counterpoint, featuring 1/3 of Hessle Audio triumvirate Pearson Sound, the looping techno of anonymous Swede Abdulla Rashim, and on the lighter side of things Marcellis of Millions of Moments and Francis Inferno Orchestra, with a forthcoming 12″ on New York’s Let’s Play House.

LEISURE SYSTEM.21 / BERGHAIN: DISCLOSURE (dj) | THE FIELD (live) | AKKORD| BARKER | DISCIPLINE |

FINEST FRIDAY / PANORAMA BAR: PEARSON SOUND | ABDULLA RASHIM | MARCELLIS | FRANCIS INFERNO ORCHESTRA |

27.Jan.2014 LSR010: JETS feat. Jamie Lidell – Midas Touch

Midas TouchJETS feat. Jamie Lidell – Midas Touch
LSR010

A1. Midas Touch
B1. Midas Touch (Machinedrum Version)

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

Release Date: January 27th, 2014

Jimmy Edgar and Travis Stewart (aka Machinedrum) reunite as JETS for a new and limited 12” on Leisure System, featuring vocals from chameleonic soul singer Jamie Lidell.

“Midas Touch” debuted as the opening track on Machinedrum’s Essential Mix in November 2013, but the track has been popping up at Leisure System gigs in various forms for the past six months. This 12” is only the second release from the JETS project following their self-titled debut on Leisure System, but as solo acts both Jimmy Edgar and Machinedrum had breakthrough years in 2013, the former launching his Ultramajic imprint and the latter releasing the Vapor City LP on Ninja Tune. The result of serendipitous recording sessions, “Midas Touch” will sound familiar to many but has been given a unique spin by the restlessly creative duo, buoyed by a powerhouse vocal by Lidell.

“Midas Touch” is a vinyl-only release featuring the original JETS version of “Midas Touch” and a Machinedrum remix that smoothes out the soulful track for the dancefloor.

13.Dec.2013 LS.20: Berlin @ Berghain/Panorama Bar

LS-DEC11

LEISURE SYSTEM.20 / FINEST FRIDAY | Berghain / Panorama Bar | December 13, 2013 | Doors / Start: midnight | Box office only | x-rated

After our 5th anniversary in August, Leisure System are back and celebrating our 20th party at Berghain/Panorama Bar. Topping the list of names is Paul Woolford, who will be making his German debut as Special Request. Following a series of incendiary 12″ singles, Woolford released the Soul Music LP as Special Request, inspired by the golden age of UK pirate radio and the hardcore continuum from jungle to rave to techno.

Also on the bill is Tim Exile, who earlier this year released the Harmuni EP on the Leisure System record label. A friend of Leisure System since the early days, Tim will be celebrating his first release in over four years with this live gig in celebration of reaching the 20th party milestone

Another member of the Leisure System family will play in the form of Visionist, the South London grime producer whose dirty, broken rhythms will be an ideal match for the Funktion One system. In addition, Leeds native Kommune1 will be delivering gargantuan techno ahead of the release of his Kronos EP on Leisure System on December 2nd, following records on GnD and Lone’s Magic Wire imprint.

Your favorite Leisure System residents N>E>D and Barker round up up another electric LS bash.

»Finest Friday« in Panorama Bar will play host to SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO, KASSEM MOSSE, DJ SPIDER and DAKINI9.

02.Dec.2013 LSR009: Kommune1 – Kronos EP

Kommune1 Packshot

 
Kommune1 – Kronos EP
LSR009

1. Kronos
2. Mesonoxian
3. Ls6

Available as high quality download in all popular digital stores

Release Date: December 2nd, 2013

After releases on Lone’s Magic Wire imprint and the digital-only label GND, Kommune1 cements his reputation for electric eclecticism with Kronos, coming out on Leisure System December 2nd, 2013.

UK native Daniel Martin takes inspiration from an amalgamation of genres past and present, with a particular debt to psychedelic techno, acid, and garage. The three tracks on Kronos are his most belligerent productions to date, and an ideal match for the diverse musical aesthetic of the Leisure System label and party series. Only 25, Martin has managed to create an EP that is disorientation incarnate, full of engorged tones, aggressive vocal samples, and thwacking percussion. Kommune1 productions have been previously championed by the likes of Ben UFO and Blawan, and Kronos should similarly thrill fans of adventurous, throbbing techno.

“Kronos,” “Mesonoxian,” and “Ls6″ are all ambient-tinged bangers, and have been secret weapons for Leisure System’s resident DJs for almost a year. We’re proud to offer everyone else the chance to add this stunning EP from Kommune1 to their bag.

Buy now on Boomkat: http://boomkat.com/downloads/844315-hubie-davison-i-won-t-be-there

Release Date: November 4th, 2013

Hubie Davison makes his artist debut on Leisure System with the I Won’t Be There EP, an expansive collection of lush, interplanetary house that is at once vaguely exotic and completely entrancing.

Hailing from Ireland and previously studying music composition in London, Davison synthesizes the emotive melodicism of artists like John Talabot and Caribou with the bare grooviness of Nicolas Jaar, incorporating phantasmagorical vocal samples into a refined instrumental palette. I Won’t Be There is an ethereal listening experience, with tracks developing from calm restraint to exhilarating peaks. Whether it’s the gentle rainstorm that introduces “Mannequin Move,” the gauzy hollers of “Yeh Sai,” or the pulsing piano chords and swollen bass of standout opener “I Won’t Be There,” Davison has a fully-formed feel for mellow grooves, while the thumping, floor-ready Dayvision Rework of “I Won’t Be There” should be getting played out at Panorama Bar for months to come.

Whether soundtracking end-of-summer romance or warming a winter chill, moving dance floors or soothing after-hour comedowns, I Won’t Be There is a thrilling debut from an exciting young artist we’re proud to have join the Leisure System family.

30.Sep.2013 LSR007: Dopplereffekt – Tetrahymena EP

Tetrahymena Artwork

A1) Tetrahymena
B1) Gene Silencing
B2) Zygote

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

Release date: September 30th, 2013

Detroit enigma Dopplereffekt has been resurrected, emerging from a grave of jagged detritus and technotrash for their first release since 2007. Dopplereffekt has always preferred mystery and myth, and the Tetrahymena EP on Leisure System is a scorching assertion of their capacity for hallucinogenic abrasion. Tetrahymena wanders through decommissioned factories and an omnipresent chemical haze, evasive and contemplative like the last man alive in a crumbling steel city. Whether in the ethereal voices and plunging bass of title track “Tetrahymena,” the unidentified flying objects droning maliciously in the thunderous weapon “Gene Silencing,” or the retch and hiss of arpeggiated bad trip “Zygote,” it’s a transportive journey of dread as only Dopplereffekt can create. Leisure System is proud to release the Tetrahymena EP, an essential vision of dance floor dystopia from one of the most consistently compelling artists in electronic music.

27.Sep.2013 Leisure System // HOAX @ Melkweg, Amsterdam

 

130927-Leisure-System-@-kli

Leisure System is happy to announce a collaboration with the good people at HOAX, bringing a lineup of our heavy hitters to Melkweg, Amsterdam.

British producer Jon Hopkins headlines the night, coming off the success of his fourth album Immunity, which Pitchfork called “a confident electronic record that stays absorbing from beginning to end, and should finally catapult Hopkins to stardom in his own story.” We couldn’t agree more: Jon Hopkins is a star, and we’re proud to have him at Leisure System // HOAX.

Also appearing for a rare live set is Dopplereffekt, legendary for their bizarre electro futurism full of political, scientific, and explicit vocals. Dopplereffekt’s first release in over five years comes out on Leisure System Records in October.

From Dutch soil comes 2562 (a.k.a A Made Up Sound) who debuted in 2008 with a special blend of house and dubstep. As A Made Up Sound, his releases have been featured on Modeselektor’s 50 Weapons label. Leisure System resident Discipline will bless the dance floor with his flawless selections, along with HOAX residents Know V.A. and DJ + playing their infamous selections of future bass music.

Get ready for a night full of artists that will turn the dance floor upside down and blow your minds with electronic music that is as forward-thinking as it is danceable.
