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.

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.

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

Hallucinations storm the border between wakefulness and sleep. Accurate perceptions give way to distorted visions, senses torn and split through.

25.Jun.2014 Leisure System RA label of the month + new comp. announced

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 15.15.23

Big update today as we’re honoured to be Resident Advisors label of the month. Barker has put together a brand new mix of unreleased goodies and Leisure archive favourites to accompany the feature. Further more to celebrate we’ve created a very special, ltd ed. lazer cut, etched, and CNC milled acrylic glass SD card that will contain all tracks in the mix + the entire Leisure System back catalog available later this month from the new Leisure System webshop that will cater to all your leisure needs. Enjoy!

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 14.47.17

 

About the mix Barker writes: “There is something uniquely satisfying about being sent new music people have made, fresh off the line and yet to be classified. With work in progress, you get a snapshot of the artistic process as it unfolds and an opportunity to offer feedback, playing a small part in the final outcome.

As much as I love the current musical landscape, I didn’t want to make a mix of recent hits and proven bangers. Someone else would do that better. Instead, I want to share this excitement of discovery and take you on a trip into unfamiliar sonic worlds.

90% of this mix you will not have heard before, the exceptions being a few personal favorites from the Leisure System archives. All unreleased tracks will come out in the near future, on our forthcoming DATA.01 compilation on Micro SD, and upcoming 12″ releases. I hope you enjoy this collection of sounds, representing Artists with unique voices, and something interesting to say.
Track ID’s are forthcoming, but first, listen…”
