about

2012 has been a fantastic year for the label with an acclaimed serie of releases by Marlow, Matt Flores, Nowakowski & label guru Dairmount. We chosed to close the year with a very special project and we are very excited to share it with you.
Everything started during an early summer afternoon in San Francisco. Two friends were playing around in a messy studio full of analog gear. The first hours didn’t lead to any inspiration till they decided to take advantage of the old CV-Gate Technology to make drum machines & synths “talk” between each others. The creative sparkle came out of the magic happening between the beloved TR606 and the SH101 and SH09. The 2 friends entered “the zone” for long hours & let their complicity & the randomness factor do the rest. And if you know that the 2 studio freaks we are talking about are none others than the Canadian house legend Fred Everything & Spanish wonderboy Al Velilla, you start to get a fantasy about the monster you are invited to listen today.Dairmount was one of the very first pair of ears to discover it and it didn’t take long to become one of these “instant signings” of the RWAV history.

“The randomness factor was really important to create this piece”, explained Fred. “By sending the Gate out to the SH09, we were able to randomize the pattern of the bassline by choosing the notes on the spot while the rhythm of the sequence was kept tight by the 606. The SH101 Sequence (the main sequence) was also randomized live switching the octaves up and down to give it some natural yet unexpected life. By going in these different avenues of creation and adding more layers of synths to the final result, we ended up with a truly original piece” To celebrate this nice piece, the pair decided to call the track Blue Fish as a little tribute to the code name of Fred’s rescued Husky dog who became his new studio member.

This release will find a place of choice in both guys discography. After 20 years of production & djing and more than 100 releases & remixes on prestigious labels such as 20:20 Vision, Drumpoet, Freerange, Large, Seasons & his own Lazy Days imprint, founded 5 years ago, Fred is still on top of the game & touring the world intensely. Al Velilla is one of these crazy music outsiders whose music life took many turns : Al has been the A&R of OM Records, remixed Radioslave, Crazy P & Wamdue Kids and founded recently Pulselocker, an amazing digital dj service.

We are extremely happy & proud to welcome these 2 long time friends on the label, united for this timeless piece of music.
