Latest Release

We’re just two guys from Vancouver, Canada & we make a lot of different kinds of computer music’ – SANGNOIR (2014).

Ever since we heard the murky undertones of SANGNOIR in their flip of ‘Made You Look’, we’ve been eagerly awaiting to put something out with them. The Canadian duo then sent us ‘Lapse’, a dark, dissonant & raw take on the ever-evolving state of ‘trap’ music. It’s ethereal, atmospheric & leaves you in a state of trance wondering exactly what just happened for the last 3 minutes.

Available now via beatport & iTunes.

Featured Tracks

It’s been a minute since we released one of Ozzie’s first tracks ‘Dem man Kno’ via TD Records, as the uprising Brighton producer was accelerating his way into the UK bass scene with some unforgettable music. Two years later & we’re proud to deliver the ‘REGIME’ EP, a three track collection that boldly states Ozzie’s continual evolution within electronic music.

From the melodic tones of ‘Gangsta’, the rumbling drum line of ‘Lights Out’ & the purple infused ‘Warios Castle’, the ‘REGIME’ EP body of tracks provides a brief idea of Ozzie’s future intent, as a full length album is currently in the works. Grab ‘Lights Out’ & the rest of the EP over at Ozzie’s Facebook > http://tinyurl.com/bhbfaml

The 3am series continues with Ari Lennox, a singer-songwriter, model and actress that epitomises the very notion of mesmerising. The Washington based vocalist released ‘La La La La’ originally as a single & ultimately made it part of her debut EP ‘Ariography’, a 7 track collection that speaks volumes for Ari’s endless ability to introduce soul into every aspect of her music. This 3am feature comes ahead of a future collaboration between Ari Lennox & Trapdoor Records, so make sure to keep an eye out.

Premiere : http://www.hillydilly.com/2014/06/aquilo-you-there-daktyl-remix-premiere

Trapdoor & Hillydilly present this week’s 3am series courtesy of Daktyl with a sensuous remix of Aquilo’s ‘You There’.
The London based artist has been busy of late, launching his new group alias “Shiloh” earlier this month but also finding time to drop releases as Daktyl on DieHigh records, Mad Decent & Run The Trap. Keeping up the consistent work rate, it’s no surprise that he’s currently on a U.S tour playing in San Francisco, L.A & more.
The track itself plays out as an elegant composition, finely balancing vocals with a mellowing backdrop of production. ‘You there’ acts as a perfect follow up in the 3am series & reminds us there is a lot we haven’t heard from the uprising talent named Daktyl.

Ninetys

Late Nights In Geneva

As part of the 3am series, here’s a late night saxophone session.
Unlike anything Ninetys has put out before, ‘Late Nights In Geneva’ gives you an idea of the intended variation in his upcoming music, pushing his recognisable hip-hop style whilst intertwining some Jazz & soul influence into the mix. With more than a few (hundred) gems tucked away on his hard drive, this smooth instrumental will be on repeat until Ninetys decides it’s time to exit his studio & upload the next release.
If you’re in Paris this Thursday, catch Ninetys playing live at the Social club alongside Keys N Krates presented by Electronic connoisseurs Fairfax.

Losco

Wolf

Its fair to say that 2014 has been a big year for the four members that make up Losco. In March, they released a 4 track ‘White Label’ EP via the L.A based movement Soulection, consistently revealing their natural talent for murky bass driven tracks such as ‘IMPO’ & our personal favourite ’Scriptina’. Aswell as Flume taking notice & producing a remix of the Losco track ‘Proteïn’, they opened at the very first Boiler Room in their home country Belgium.
Now after a few self releases, the Losco boys got in touch to send us ‘Wolf’, a track true to their dark nature & distinguishable home-grown sound. This ones released for free, click that buy link and be sure to follow Losco as they continue to thrive throughout this year.

The dynamic duo of Milo Mills & Noi team up to bring us ‘War Of Roses’, an energetic throwback to old school gaming fused with new-era, bespoke electronic music.
Recently picked up by Billboard as one of the next big sounds, the Vienna Based producer follows up from ‘Ocean Gang’ by combining his fresh, style conscious & boundary transcending methods with the explorational techniques & Hip-hop influences of the fresh faced Noi. Both artists abide by the same rule of experimenting in a multitude of genres, never doing the same track twice & therefore allowing the music to evolve naturally.
War Of Roses is available now via Trapdoor Records at all major digital outlets.

Andru

Wailin

Around this time last year we released an early creation from the emerging talent Andru titled ‘You Are’, a stirring & almost euphoric original production. Since then, the Montreal based producer has built himself an independent identity for consistent quality with varying style. This is especially true for the Bells EP, a high calibre two track release with enough drum smacks & catchy leads to induce appreciative head nodding.
Wailin’ is just track 2/2, so be sure to get over to Andru’s Facebook & both tracks for free.

His page is packed full of unearthed gems that prove to be an elegant collection of tracks that will surely leave you mesmerised. The Paris based producer has just put out ‘Rendezvouz’, a stunning piece that centres around a flowing synth driven by a hearty basseline.
Be sure to keep an eye on this guy, one to watch.

MENIK & Jack Grace

Solitude

Trapdoor & Future Beats Records present the third instalment of the ‘3AM Series’..

There’s something about this track that requires us to listen on repeat, trying to understand exactly what just happened. The original piece ‘Solitude’ takes Menik’s atmospheric production & introduces the haunting vocals of Jack Grace. As the the structure is somewhat variable, the unpredictable nature of the track serves as a journey to the ears, twisting & turning but never allowing a let up from the dream like state. If you’re feeling this be sure to check out both artist’s soundcloud pages, in particular Jack Grace’s brilliant ‘Home’ EP & Menik’s soulful Deep Heads releases.
