There is something about the Winter time that makes me feel more.. sophisticated. Maybe it’s the Peacoat, maybe it’s the soul satisfying cup of coffee needed to keep warm in the early hours, or maybe it’s the music. One London based label has my admiration, and for good reason.

It takes a certain kind of artist to create music like that, and Erased Tape Records has managed to find a bountiful lot of them. Continue Reading
Local Venice producer Ruff Hauser dropped a bomb of an EP yesterday. The whole package consists of three originals and a bonus download remix of “Gotta Get Thru This.” All of the tracks are bass house club killers, utilizing super high energy bass lines and tech influenced percussion and sampling. The production value in all of these tracks really speaks volumes about Ruff Hauser, a guy who I can see getting huge in 2015. Grab the EP on Beatport and snag the bonus free download here for your efforts!
