After the shocking announcement last month that electronic French label Institubes decided to pull out of the game all together, fans worldwide were left scratching their heads wondering if and when a rebound would come. Thankfully, Para One, Surkin, and Bobmo secretly joined forces and launched a new label called ‘Marble‘. They release their first EP today under the name ‘Marble Players’. Undeniably French, they push the boundaries of dance music, as both tracks are serious forward-thinking analog driven bass tunes, and I can affirmatively say that ‘Marble Anthem’ is one of the best tracks I’ve come across this year. Purchase the EP on iTunes.

LDN – Having recently set up his new Marble label with co-founders Bobmo and Surkin, Para One is set to play an exclusive London date next Saturday at Scala in Kings Cross, where he’ll be joined by Paul Chambers and Autokratz among others. (Full Listing info after the jump)
The new French electro label was started in response to the recently disbanded Institubes imprint. A statement from Para One’s manager read:
“Even though the demise of Institubes may come as a shock to the electronic music world, when Para decided to team up with the others to form Marble there was no doubt in my mind and theirs that this is going to be a huge success. It will continue to carry the French electronic sound that is already gaining worldwide attention.”
I’m sure many of you have seen the name Clockwork before. Whether it was on GDD™, Hype Machine, or on the winner’s list of multiple big time remix competitions, it is pretty apparent that this young lad has made some waves in Electroland in the past year. Originally from LA, now transplanted in NYC, Henry Steinway (Clockwork) is on the rise in the world of Electro, but he doesn’t want to bore you with 2008 sidechaining and heard-that-before bangers. His unique take on the over-saturated genre ostracizes his music from the repetition that we are all getting a bit sick of.
I got a chance to chat a bit with Henry about some exciting upcoming releases and his recent Dem Slackers remix competition win as well as his stance on Electro and where he sees it going from here. We were also lucky enough to snag a GDD™ Exclusive mixtape from Clockwork featuring a handful of unreleased and exclusive tracks, so make sure you grab that with the interview after the jump.
