Turbo Recordings artists, Clouds, have teamed up with our friends at The Well here in Los Angeles for a forward-thinking soundtrack to accompany the boutique store’s new Empyrean Layer campaign. Dark, futuristic, and cutting edge, Clouds’ track selection in this unique mix follows suit to the collection of pieces from visionary brands like UNIF, Skingraft, D by D, and more. Have a listen below and check out the full campaign lookbook here.
• “All kinds of new surprises” for Ultra Music Festival

• Download Etienne de Crecy‘s Iconic ‘Prix Choc’
• Clouds ready mini-album for Ramp Recordings
Clouds‘ new EP, Optic, dropped the other day on Turbo Recordings and it’s unsurprisingly impressive. With Optic, the duo brings us more massive, bass heavy hits that continue to wreak havoc on dance floors across the globe. While Clouds’ particular sound hasn’t changed much, this EP shows a little more maturity in their production decisions. I’m particularly vibing to the title track, Optic.
Check out a streaming preview of the EP after the jump!
Here’s a free remix from our friend hailing from Vermont, Vakkuum. Here’s what he had to say about it:
“Awhile back I was offered to do a remix for a new EP by Clouds on Turbo Recordings’ sub label Twin Turbo. Being a big fan of both Clouds and the label I saw this as a great opportunity for myself! In the end my remix didn’t make the release but my good friends Ego Troopers and Ado delivered superb remixes. I’ve decided to give the remix away for free and I hope you enjoy it!”
After half a listen you’ll be asking yourself how in the hell it didn’t make the cut, but all the better for you guys because now it’s free! Download and have a listen below, and also check out his promo mix for his imminent European mini-tour after the jump!
London watch out, because this Friday, September 2ndGet Down or Die are putting on one hell of a party at The Rhythm Factory! Throwing it down will be GDD homies Clouds, Lemmy Ashton, Jean Reno and The Get Down or Die djs! The party starts at 10pm and goes until 5am, so get there early and party late into the night with the Get Down or Die crew!
Things are lookin’ up for Clouds these days. Being teenagers and getting signed by Tiga‘s Turbo and Fake Blood‘s Blood Music record labels at the same time would likely make most people’s heads spontaneously combust, but these two lads seemingly take it all in stride, not taking themselves or the moment too seriously. Their EP released on Turbo last Monday contains four club heaters, including the long-anticipated party starter ‘Sucker.’ They’re supported by just about every major DJ and producer you’ve ever seen on a HARD poster and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. Take a listen to the tracks, buy the four-track EP off Juno, and get to know Liam and Calum all *after the jump. [Hint: Click ‘Continue Reading’ for a good time!]
If you’re usually oblivious to your surroundings (shoutout to Joelle) or just haven’t had your adderall prescription filled lately then you might not have heard about the forthcoming Bart B More remix of Dem Slackers’ new track ‘Let’s Go.’ Now, my friends, is the time for you to start paying attention. This upcoming EP set for release on September 20th off Boemklatsch Records is so insanely packed with goodies it is bursting at the seams like Buddy Love’s clothing when he turns back in to Professor Sherman Klump at the end of The Nutty Professor.
What is kind of surprising, albeit awesome, is that our good buddy Bart’s stabs at ‘Let’s Go’ are quite possibly second fiddle on the EP to two eighteen year old lads from Scotland. Rumor has it these kids worked at a McDonald’s before the likes of Fake Blood and Tiga started playing their track out. Boys and girls, meet Clouds. Recently signed to Turbo you should be hearing big, big things from them in the near future.
Can’t forget to mention that the fellas from PeaceTreaty (can these two do no wrong?) and Evil Nine bring outstanding efforts to the table as well.
