Ballet Mechanique is the musical outlet of Jeroen Borrenbergs, co-founder of design studio Stoere Binken Design. In 1996 he made his debut on Eindhoven’s first electronic music label, Stefan Robber’s Eevo Lute Muzique and became the label’s in-house graphic designer from 1995 until 2003.

Having more recently released two re-issue EPs on Amsterdam’s highly respected Delsin Records and a series of 90s made yet unreleased material on Spanish re-issue label O.C.D. (Open Channel for Dreamers) ‘Rebuild’ marks the first brand new material from the Dutch producer and designer for many years.

As a man who was initially inspired to produce by the likes of The Black Dog, Future Sound of London, Global Communication and old school Detroit techno the ‘Rebuild EP’ continues the dance / cerebral lineage with two “floor” cuts and two more “listening” tracks.

‘Rebuild’ starts the proceedings with a driving tempo that builds around emotional strings for a taste of classic Detroit inspired techno-funk. ‘Echo Catcher’ then showcases Jeroen’s more introspective side – echoing indeed the legacy of early Black Dog. ‘Share the Feeling’ then picks things up again, highlighting Jeroen’s mastery of a building dancefloor narrative that knows when to give and let go whilst closing track ‘Big Hearts’ is a wonderful, ethereal, sun-kissed cyber-kinetic daydream. Glorious stuff!

Following Theiz’s ‘Waiting On Closure’, is a unique EP by South East London’s Busby who makes his EPMmusic debut with ‘Behind The Mask EP’.

Busby is an artist that tries to not fit into any specific box, utilising his traditional musical training in tandem with his electronic music obsession to create dancefloor sounds that attempt to adhere to as many tastes as possible. From industrial techno to spacey synth-pop and from complex polyrhythms to catchy melodies. He currently runs AJ’s Dance Party, a grass-roots community based in South London which celebrates local DJ talent, with small events in and around South East London (most recently at Four Quarters in Peckham) alongside a monthly radio show on Komrad Radio. He is also a freelance journalist who has written pieces for the likes of The Ransom Note and Loose Lips and as a producer is currently working on music for an independent video game project.

For his ‘Behind The Mask EP’ he delivers three tracks, opening with the quirky tech-funk of ‘Barking Up The Wrong Tree’, before the spatial ‘Nils on Pills’ and title track closer ‘Behind The Mask’ which add a touch of breakbeat to the proceedings.

Down the Barge

  • Artist(s) Chainska Brassika
  • Composer(s) Chainska Brassika
  • Label Chainska Brassika
  • Publisher(s) May Music Ltd
  • Release Date 27th Feb 2022
Read full description

Chainska Brassika return from lockdown armed with their first single ‘Down the Barge’ from their forthcoming album ‘Tales of a Londoner’, recorded, produced, and mixed by Grippa Laybourne from the infamous Hempolics, and mastered in Canada by Jesse King aka Dubmatix.

‘Down the Barge’ depicts a proper day out with the lads in London, where going down the pub is a way of life – London wouldn’t be complete without a pub! The original social centres of the capital are famous the world over and sometimes all a Londoner needs is to drown the week’s sorrows with a trip down the local boozer. This rocking, upbeat single from the band is a homage to their favourite “local” and tells the story of a young man’s day and journey to that final destination.

“Come on son, we’re going down the Barge!”

“The World Reggae Contest champions are at the forefront of the UK’s new Ska movement and have a distinctive vibrance in their sound that combines sweet melodic vocals, rough lyrics with high energy ska rhythms and reggae passages soaked in magnificent brass lines.”

Beneil Miller – Sailing In Love (Acoustic Version)

  • Artist(s) Beneil Miller
  • Composer(s) Beneil Miller
  • Label Serenade
  • Release Date 14th Feb 2022
Read full description

A friend in Boston proposed “a project while I was still at Berklee and asked if I had any originals… the song itself, ‘Sailing In Love’, is seven or eight years old” and the inspiration came from one of Cayman’s beautiful seaside idylls.

“I don’t know how to describe it… it’s not even a beach just rocks that have been there for millions of years. I was out there and the whole chorus came to me. But it’s a combination of people contributing over the years … different players… different places.”

Beneil Miller’s music transcends categorisation and transports us all to kinder, calmer places… and there’s much more to follow.

“But this is the first of many songs! I intend to do some more singles and a full length album by the end of the year.”

That’s definitely something we can all look forward to…

Written & Performed By: Beneil Miller

An enchanting mbira line summons ancestral forces on the new collaboration by Ma1co1m & Kibir La Amlak – Fi Di Kingdom

MA1CO1M x KIBIR LA AMLAK – FI DI KINGDOM

Before Zero Records

4 Track Digital EP with instrumental & dubs

Release: 11 February 2022

Stream: https://ffm.to/fidikingdom

Ma1co1m, a young member of the RasTafari faith, is an artist difficult to categorise. His maternal heritage Ugandan, his paternal Norwegian and he himself currently residing in Stockholm, Sweden. Ma1co1m hails from a new generation of RasTafari musicians, who, although rooted in the ancient foundation of RasTafari reggae and inspired by the greats from Bob to Bunny to Prince Fari, his principal musical inspiration comes from the works of Vaughn Benjamin, aka Akae Beka / the voice of Midnite. It therefore goes without saying that Ma1co1m’s lyrical content is heavily steeped in mysticism, with an often ethereal quality, somewhere between prayer and poetry.  90’s born and raised against the backdrop of millennial culture, Ma1co1m has long followed a calling away from the virtues of the modern world and rooted himself in permaculture projects in Uganda, plant medicine and a keen advocate of sports, athleticism and fitness. Ma1co1m is an artist with a mission and a vision, in the divine inspiration of Haile Selassie I, ‘to become a member of a new race’.

Fi Di Kingdom, is the first of many collaborations between Ma1co1m and London based producer and sound system, Kibir La Amlak. A track that was allowed to become exactly what ‘it’ wanted to be, the riddim was built on a Friday, vocals recorded on Saturday and video shot on Sunday. Just as with Ma1co1m as an artist, one will struggle to accurately confine this track to a specific genre, it’s definitely dub, but also hip-hop and trap, its slow in tempo but in places feels fast paced, its electronic and acoustic, yet one thing which is undeniable is its heavy and deep. An enchanting mbira line summons ancestral forces, the nyahbingi drum sanctifies the ceremonial proceedings and the drum and bass roots the track like a tree well planted by a river of water, providing the perfect tapestry for Ma1co1m to deliver a combination of poetic, prayerful, chanting, rapping, singing, militant yet gentle word sound and power.

  • Release Date 4th Feb 2022
Read full description

EPMmusic kick starts 2022 with a new EP from Theiz. Following his ‘Moving Forward into the Past’ EP from the end of 2020, ‘Waiting on Closure’ delivers 4 cuts of classic electronica, tempered with techno steel and a bonus remix from East Island.

Theiz, real name Mathijs Schippers has released on labels such as Eevolute, Techno-Tourist and Ear-land Recordings in the late ’90s and early ’00s and began producing again in 2015 after a 15-year break.

With a set of influences that range from Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd, FSOL and Plastikman to Phillip Glass, Theiz’s ‘Waiting on Closure’ fuses modern techno to classic electronica. Taking us back to an early ’90s techno blueprint and then updated with modern production techniques we find an artist fusing funk and warmth with a forlorn emotional depth.

Eevolute, Downlow, Ear-land and EevoNext artist, East Island provides a bumping, acidic remix of ‘We’ll Find A Way’ to round off another quality EP from Theiz.

Tate Britain features Tann-i Brown track “Worries & Troubles” as the soundtrack to their exhibition celebrating 70 years of Caribbean-British art

  • Artist(s) Tann-i Browne
  • Label Greensleeves Records

  • Release Date 14th Dec 2021
  • Client Tate Britain
Read full description

Tannoi’s 1985 smash hit ‘Worries And Troubles’, recorded for Greensleeves UK Bubblers imprint has been chosen by the Tate Britain as the soundtrack to Between The Islands, the recently opened acclaimed exhibition that traces over 70 years of Caribbean art.

Tannoi hit hard with four massive tracks in the 80’s (all collected on the Greensleeves compilation ‘Nice Up The Dance’); now reborn as Tann-I Browne, his recently released ‘Rebel Soul’ album has been met with much love and indeed is a work of art itself.

Exhibition details follow:

LIFE BETWEEN ISLANDS

CARIBBEAN-BRITISH ART 1950S – NOW

UNTIL 3 APRIL 2022

This exhibition explores the work of artists from the Caribbean who made their home in Britain, alongside other British artists whose work has been influenced and inspired by Caribbean themes and heritage.

Spanning visionary paintings to documentary photography, fashion, film and sculpture, Life Between Islands traces the extraordinary breadth and impact of Caribbean British art, in one setting.

This exhibition celebrates how people from the Caribbean have forged new communities and identities in post-war Britain – and in doing so have transformed what British culture and society looks like today.

The exhibition features over 40 artists, including Aubrey Williams, Donald Locke, Horace Ové, Sonia Boyce, Claudette Johnson, Peter Doig, Hurvin Anderson, Grace Wales Bonner and Alberta Whittle.

Research supported by Hyundai Tate Research Centre: Transnational in partnership with Hyundai Motor.

Following on from the success of their original team up single ‘I Want You’, it was only natural that Aleighcia Scott and producer Kongz would collaborate once again. The new single, ‘Cry’ is another scorcher born from the unique UK-Jamaican combination of the creators with an infectious groove, smooth horns and the undisputed power of Aleighcia’s voice.

The single charted at number 1 on the UK Apple Reggae Singles chart on release day and has been supported by Craig Charles on BBC 6music, David Rogigan and Seani B at BBC 1xtra and is currently entering it’s 3rd week of playlisting on BBC Radio Wales where Aleighcia Scott has secured a Christmas night show of her own!

Kongz is band leader of Protoje’s Indiggnation band and one of the toughest producers emerging out of Jamaica.  His credits include production for Protoje, Kabaka Pyramid,  Agent Sasco, Pressure Busspipe, Lila Ike and Sevana.

‘Wolf And Nina’ features BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year Deschanel Gordon and multi-genre cellist/vocalist Midori Jaeger. “I wrote this about the reassurance you get from having non-human companions in situations of stress. In this case my cats in the pandemic; their blissful ignorance to whatever’s going on in the human world, and their lack of change in behaviour being a comfort”. With Midori’s lyrics touching on the strains of relationships, ‘Wolf And Nina’ goes beyond the boundaries of jazz within folk-tinged song writing and ethereal atmospheres.

The brand new video for “Free Your Mind” is live on Macka B‘s YouTube channel.

Directed by Akil Designs, the video encourages us to incorporate the Freedom of Nature into our mindset.

As always with Macka B, it is a crucial message at a crucial time.

UK Reggae legend Macka B released his single “Free your Mind” on 5 November 2021an acoustic remake of the Joe Higgs classic “Let Us Do Something/Journey To Freedom”.  Joe Higgs is credited as the man who taught Bob Marley and the Wailers to sing.

Free your mind is a beautiful acoustic reggae track featuring Ciyo Brown one of the UK’s finest guitarists. The melodic and harmonious nature of the track reflects Ciyo’s many musical influences.

Macka B is renowned for his positive, uplifting lyrics and “Free your Mind” is no exception. In his unique poetic style, he effortlessly glides across the track with a heart rendering plea encouraging the listener to look within, free your mind and take the shackles and chains from your brains.  The haunting chorus of freedom perfectly complements the acoustic vibes with harmonies courtesy of Peter Spence and Noel Browne.

“Free your Mind” comes at a perfect time when people are searching for answers to what is going on in the world today.

A must for your collection; music with a message.

Regis – No Love From Above

  • Artist(s) Regis
  • Composer(s) Karl O'Connor
  • Label EPMmusic
  • Publisher(s) EPM
  • Release Date 12th Nov 2021
Read full description

Wrapping up our 20th year in fine style EPM are delighted to reveal the release of ‘Beyond the Reach of Time’, the surprise 4th instalment of our EPM20 vinyl series from UK techno master, Regis.

Karl O’Connor (aka Regis) has remained a maverick and iconic figure on the global techno stage, ever since his ‘Montreal’ EP burned his name across the world’s dancefloors some 25 years ago. His unconventional and single-minded label, Downwards, often shrouded by mythology, has also helped to launch fellow protagonist Surgeon as one of techno’s most revered DJ/producers.

Never one to tread the easy path, O’Connor alongside known projects such as British Murder Boys (with Surgeon), O/V/R with James Ruskin and Sandwell District alongside Function and Silent Servant has more recently collaborated with artists such as Ann Margaret Hogan (piano) and Justin K. Broadrick on guitar (previously of Godflesh) for a one-off concert performed live in the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, Argolis, Greece as well as releasing last year’s stunning new album ‘In This Is The Light That You Miss’ on Downwards. In his continuous search to side-step convention, he remains one of the more highly regarded creative forces within the British techno/electronic scene.

The genesis of the tracks on ‘Beyond the Reach of Time’ go way back to 1999 and thanks to various internet leaks have, over the following years, added to the mystique that surrounds them and the artist. Recorded in a period when O’Connor was putting tracks together for both an album on Tresor and an anonymous shortly-lived house label called Housework, these tracks seemed to fit neither the hard-edged Regis sound of the time nor the Housework style and simply slipped through the cracks.

Now over 20 years after their creation we are proud to give these long-lost Regis tracks the official release they deserve. The EP opens with the thumping yet muted tribalism of ‘No Love From Above’ whereby O’Connor approaches the dancefloor with malevolent restraint before ‘At the Side of Silence’ fuses this approach with the chord motif that runs through the beating heart of this release.

Rolling in at just under 13 minutes the closing ‘Beyond the Reach of Time Pt.2’ is epic in both scale and sound, its synth drenched chords taking it closer to Motor City emotionalism than anything O’Connor has committed to wax. Its sister piece ‘Beyond the Reach of Time Pt.1’ can also be found on ‘EPM20’, the 21-track digital compilation marking EPM’s 20th Year.

It’s Happened Before is the first release from ‘ANAPHORA’, a new solo album project from Joe Dworniak … producer, composer & songwriter.

Joe’s soundscapes are richly emotive and create multi-layered atmospheres, evoking both expectation and calm, this composition asks us to remain grounded.

Working once again with Fernando de France, longterm friend and collaborator, this short form mini-film highlights their respect for each others work and allowed for a wordless and instinctive process.  It has been the foundation of their relationship built up over many years.

Joe Says “I have always admired Fernando’s ability to capture powerful messages wrapped in gentle beauty”

Filmed in Almería, as the Spanish lockdown eased, ‘It’s Happened Before’ was shot on 16mm, Super 8mm & Video HD.

The geranium flower is associated with the unexpected and our spiritual life and in this story it symbolises resilience, strength and beauty representing a sense of belonging that goes beyond time and space.

“It is only about love, it has happened before and will happen again” Fernando de France
