Counter – Remixes

Our last release of 2014 finally sees Nikolozi join Newclear Music as the title artist, after several remix appearances.

Nikolozi kicks off the EP with the “Drinking Blood Mix” – a raw, organic electro rearrangement of the original Counter. NZ/Canada duo Absolute Value & bLazem finally join the Newclear roster with their melodic DNB take on the original. Juan Tellez is back and follows up with more foundation-shaking bottom-heavy techno. Nort returns the line-up with more slick techy house grooves. nsu rounds up the EP with a blend of deep dubstep and proggy breaks.

The EP is available now in digital format from Beatport Pro, iTunes, JunoDownload, Traxsource, the Newclear Bandcamp Store, and the Spotify streaming service.

Chilled Juice – Remixes

The latest EP out on Newclear Music sees the return of Squeezer, for our first EP focused exclusively on chill-out styles.

Squeezer returns to the fore with a heavenly chill-out number, with undertones of slowed-down trance. Virus (of the Audio Colours collective) flavours his version with easy rollin’ breakbeats. Andy Snook is back under his Invader Tron guise, this time delivering a mellow psychedelic take on the original, featuring the talents of Azzy on the flute. Newclear family member Stray Theories stamps his signature ethereal/post-rock/ambient style on the track and nsu, as has been the custom, rounds off the release, this time with a nod to trip-hop.

The EP is available now in digital format from Beatport, iTunes, JunoDownload, Traxsource, the Newclear Bandcamp Store, and the Spotify streaming service.

Quick Mid-2014 News Round-up

What an amazing few months it has been! We have seen the relaunch of our website, the release of the first Soul Science EP for this label, and more plans crystallise for the second half of this year. So in this short update, we take a look at what’s going on with the new, upcoming and recent releases:

  • A new Squeezer EP just is around the corner. “Chilled Juice” is the latest chill-out offering from Karl Howe, and is set to be released mid-September with four more downbeat flavoured mixes, courtesy of Stray Theores, Invader Tron, Virus and nsu. We are hard at work preparing the promotional materials, and are very excited about our first true chill-out only EP.
  • We are happy to announce that the next remix EP will be for our good friend Nikolozi‘s tune “Counter” (listen here). Full team of artists guesting on remix duties will be announced at a later date, but we are looking at a Q4 release for the package.
  • The new nsu single “Resurrection”, with Deepstoned on the vocals, is ready for release (featuring a drum & bass remix by a yet to be announced up & coming duo), but is delayed by the postponement of the music video shoot. We are still hopeful of a 2014 release.
  • In May, we released the first Soul Science EP on Newclear, “Positive Vibes”, with remixes from Juan Tellez, Nikolozi, Sentient, and nsu. The EP is available now from the usual online retailers, and you can grab two bonus mixes as a free download.

Apart from the usual music side of Newclear, we are also preparing a couple of interesting blog posts for the next couple of months.

That’s all for this update, it’s full steam ahead towards the end of 2014!
