We are truly thrilled to celebrate our 4th label birthday with our first spring release of 2013. Following a long series of luminaries such as MCDE. Lodemann, Sasse, Marlow or Joel Alter who Dairmount invited along the years to shape & share his musical fantaisies, this new release unite a pretty unique cast of established sound scientists & upcoming talents. All of them answered warmly Dairmount’s invitation, being loyal fans of the label.
Dave Aju, the Bay Area sound guru, is still surfing high on the wave of his acclaimed Heirlooms album last year on Circus Company. He also recently released on Herbert’s Accidental imprint. Love Tap opens the release in style displaying a very unusual sound drifting away of his trademark moody house. Reminiscent of early Global Communication’s work, Dave Aju explored deep & spacey soundscapes echoing hypnotic Soul samples, creating a very unique hypnotic sound odyssey.
Strong of 2 acclaimed EP’s on Room With A View in 2011 & 2012, Nowakowski kept working hard shaping up a very mature sound signature colliding elements of bicep Techno, moody House & UK Bass influences. They Get Up is a perfect proof of where the Swedish Polish prodigy stands today. Expect more of this young fella on his home label and on further respected labels.
Adam Hodgins aka Iron Galaxy is probably one of the hottest newcomers of 2012. Responsible of the hugely acclaimed Attention Seeker on Audioculture, the track has been played & charted by everybody across the board. We are extremely delighted to offer you this 8 minutes sound trip called Refining Fire. The montreal based producer made marvels once again with this genuine drum machine opera.
Discovered by Dairmount through their brilliant output on Freude Am Tanzen, German duo Taron Trekka signed an amazingly addictive groover called Nenndas. Already a prime favorite of Wolf Music’s star Greymatter…

This kind of deep house is a really tricky beast to get right, as the line between dull and stellar is so fine. This EP largely stands on the right side of that: deep but not dull. They Get Up which is very Pepe Bradockesque and Refining Fire are probably the picks. the latter has a lovely riff and subtle acid.
Luke Sutton (Crack Magazine/ Mixmag/ Pardon My French/ Kiss FM)
nice deep stuff. will play one or two of these on KissFM
Tom Durston (Inverted Audio)
Nice and dusty, with some great little intricacies! Interesting new takes on classic tropes, tough to pick a favourite

Huge ep! Will review it..

Benoit C (Tsugi Mag, FR)
love tap for me
Bruce Tantrum (RA/ Time Out NY/ East Village Radio)
Really interesting and varied stuff all around, and definitely all will be played for different types of dance floors but “Refining Fire” is the beautiful standout! Honorable mention goes to the deep and building “They Get Up.”
Greg Sawyer (Resident Advisor)
Refining Fire is quality! Touch of the Todd Terje about it
