Topping the third wave of announcements, Bloc welcomes back the headliners from the first ever weekender in 2007 - Autechre. As warp records mainstays and constant live innovators, Rob Brown and Sean Booth have been annihilating our systems for years and we salute them as they take our main stage in 2015.

We’re also as thrilled as you will be to welcome back long-time friends of Bloc I Love Acid and the re-launched electro institution Electrix Records. Between them they are fielding the kind of acts that have made Bloc what it is over the years - Keith Tenniswood, Silicon Scally, Luke Vibert - and a special guest slot from The Advent. 

New to Bloc in 2015 will be a stage presented by London Modular. Their showcase will feature exclusively sets played fully live on modular
gear, with the artists nestled inside banks of equipment like the proggy, synthy mad professors they are.

Please find the full press release attached and feel free to spread the word as well as this Bloc, Autechre promo video made by film maker David Terranova.


How do you end an amazing 20th Anniversary Celebration? We think we’ve figured out our final flourish by bringing you the last of our 20th Anniversary year from the amazing Vince Watson. This is also our 250th release and a package that not only includes a remix from label boss Josh Wink, but features two bonus digital tracks that see Vince delving into his ambient side. A true celebration… We bring you “Déjà Vu”.

Vince Watson is one of the house-techno crossover pioneer’s and helped facilitate the tech-house genre’s appeal to the masses. A long musical history saw him release his debut album „Biologue“ at the end of the Millenium on Alola. The album was a big success and included the now classic track „Mystical Rhythm“. His work had a huge impact on the global electronic scene for setting a personal hypnotic perspective of groovy, melody and atmospheric sounds, a unique signature sound. He would continue his relationship with Alola, but also record for such acclaimed labels as Delsin, Planet E, and F…U F CCOM. He went on to establish his own labels Bio and Everysoul. 

2014 saw Vince step out and explore new and old relationships in regards to his releases. He rekindled his relationship with Plant E and released on Poker Flat, Bedrock and Cocoon. We are excited to say that now Vince is gracing Ovum on what will be our 250th release and the final culmination of what has been an incredible 20th Anniversary Celebration. 

„Deja Vu“ is an incredible slice of deep and emotional techno. Prepare to be taken on a bubbly ride with many twists and turns and an all-enveloping groove. The deepness is there, but this track still packs a serious punch. „Illusion“ is a wonderful combination of beauty and musicality with an inspiring drive. Illusion sees Vince taking us from the dark into the light. A gorgeous hypnotic piece that will surely become a future classic. 

Josh Wink delivers his own twist on „Illusion“. Staying true to the original Wink adds his own trademark tweeks and discreet acid touch, matching frenetic percussion with the sweeping synths of Watson’s original. Beautiful and epic.

Alongside the stunning original mix of Deja Vu Vince also presents two of his unique and trademark Ambient and Beatless mixes. A special brace of mixes to fully immerse ourselves within and a perfect way to complete our anniversary package.

1. Deja Vu

2. Illusion

3. Illusion (Wink Re-Think)

4. Illusion (Beatless Mix)

5. Illusion (Ambient Mix)

I don't have a panel of experts weighing in. It's subjective as is most folks musical taste. This is purely based on the number of times I've gone "Ah!" while listening to a track for the first time and usually many times over 2014.

I realize its not quite the end of December and some stunning track could come my way in the meantime. But it will be shelved for 2015. So presented in no particular order CGNYs Top Tracks of 2014

We love The Echologist (check out our feature on Brendon here) and our friends at Concrete Records are sharing some exclusive snippets of his remix of Plants Army Revolver.

Check it out below! It comes out Dec 9th.



'Detroit Love' is a new concept from Carl Craig, designed to bring together and support the sounds of Detroit, and take a little of the techno brotherhood to clubs and festivals the world over.



"Love is what I have for my city, Detroit. 'Detroit Love' is my way of spreading this love, a love for music from the city, my heritage and who I am as a producer and performer. My love for Detroit is my inspiration, my inspiration is 'Detroit Love'." - Carl Craig



'Detroit Love' was launched at ADE 2014, in the underground recesses of Amsterdam's North Sea Jazz club. Carl Craig invited Detroit natives Recloose, Moodymann - who played a set encompassing disco, soul, house and hip-hop, and Mad Mike Banks to play keys over Carl Craig's Moog infused 4-cd-deck closing set, which included live editing, sampling, scratching and looping of soundscapes ranging from ambient textures to masterful techno. A Detroit focused line-up, showcasing only a few of the sublime talent that Detroit has to offer, the launch was a special and unforgettable night for those who attended.



For 'Detroit Love' events, Carl Craig will perform a new technical set up with 4-cd deck mixing, looping, live editing and sampling.


Special video mapping is being designed, depicting the surreal, urban Detroit landscape.

Celebrating 20 Years of releasing original music, the enigmatic, Grammy nominatedMartin Buttrich presents his #9414 20 Years Tour, running from 20th September until 20th December and marking the launch of his new label plus a new collaboration album project for 2015.

Martin Buttrich has put his sonic fingerprints on many big ticket artists and engineered, written and produced some of the biggest tracks from the past decade. His dextrous studio skills have been the backbone of some of the biggest releases from the likes of Timo Maas and Loco Dice. From his outstanding solo releases on influential labels such as Planet E, Cocoon and Poker Flat, to receiving a Grammy nomination for his co-production on Timo Maas' Tori Amos remix in 2003, through to confounding and steering the Desolat label with Loco Dice, who has kept him as a producer and writer on his records for over a decade, Buttrich is and remains a seminal figure in the electronic industry.

This tour marks his step out of the shadows of the studio and into the centre of the dancefloor. Featuring artists with whom Buttrich has collaborated throughout his career, together they will conquer landmark cities such as London, New York, Amsterdam, LA, Rome, Berlin and Miami amongst many more. 

Many of the artists that will join Buttrich on this twenty date tour will also feature on the collaboration album due at the start of 2015.

Balance 026: Hernan Cattaneo
+ Worldwide Tour Dates
(Balance Music/North American Release Date: October 14)

[SoundCloud] Balance 026 Mixed by Hernan Cattaneo CD1 (Preview Edit)-Listen here [please post!]

I’m still playing the same as I’ve always done, and that is melodic and deep music - never too hard or fast. I’ve been into DJ’ing all my life and I always put personality as number 1 and crucial for any DJ, so I’ve never been into musical trends.” - Hernan Cattaneo
Some seek a permanent state of hype, while others like Hernan Cattaneo find liberation in being freed from the shackles of such intense scrutiny. The Argentine’s refreshing approach to DJ’ing and making music has ensured that over a decade on from the time he exploded into the public consciousness, he’s as engrossing a force as ever. His contemporary sound continues his love of rich melody and atmospheric textures, but draws on possibly a wider palette of producers and styles than ever. “It’s been GREAT years for melodies and thankfully even German techno producers are not afraid to use them anymore” he says. “As a result, I think the music now is the best since the early 2000s. I think the Israeli producers are the most interesting ones, from established producers like Guy Gerber and Guy J to newer people like Chaim or Guy Mantzur, Hakimonu, Sahar Z…” With the renewed interest in what some might call ‘progressive’ styles - Innervisions, Life & Death et al - the time for him to present his enduring sound to the world through this stunning Balance compilation couldn’t be better timed.
Disc 1 harks back to the golden age of downtempo music in the 1990s, evoking classic Cafe Del Mar and Northern Exposure mixes with its sumptuous selection of languid soundscapes. It’s a style that has sadly slipped from the spotlight, coinciding with the death of the chill-out room and the diminished ‘Balearic’ focus of Ibiza in recent years - meaning that Cattaneo’s choice of direction feels all the more special as a result. Indeed, he reaches back to 1999 for the low-slung groove of Boards Of Canada’s opener, before moving into a slew of exclusives and reworked versions of some of his favorite tracks from recent DJ sets to suit the chuggier tempo.

“I started asking some producer friends to make special versions of some of their tracks for the albums, and I’ve been very pleased with the results. I really like the way those tracks interact with the others and in many cases, the new downtempo mixes are even better than the original ones.”
It makes for a highly refreshing approach. The mesmerizing new versions give these ethereal dancefloor tracks stunning new context and life - like Chaim’s hypnotic slow dance mix of "Blue Shadow" - while haunting vocal tracks like Weval’s "Out Of The Game" provide contrast to the glistening arps and top lines of Mano Le Tough and John Tejada, and a smattering of classics dear to Cattaneo’s heart, such as Gui Boratto’s "Half Life." As the mix moves towards its conclusion, the energy and tempo nudge their way towards the clubbier climes of the second disc, culminating in a stunning rework of Guy J’s twinkling "Dizzy Moments."
Both mixes are littered with exclusive new productions from Cattaneo and his production partners Soundexile, infusing the mix with an even higher level of his musical DNA and boldly demonstrating what a force he continues to be in the studio. The driving bass of their own "Into The Edge" propels Disc 2 into life before we plunge into the deeper climbs that he’s so renowned for. More exclusives abound from the duo and others alike, a gently euphoric warmth coming over the mix through their own "Parallax" and "Fugazzi," continuing into driving reworks of Guy J and James Teej as we hit the sweet spot of the mix. New material from Guy Mantzur powers us through towards the finale, the subdued beauty of Cattaneo and Soundexile’s "Lotus" rounding the compilation off with finesse after a rousing crescendo.

Cattaneo has constructed a truly incredible chapter of the Balance series, beautifully sequenced and mixed and packed full of stunning new material that can’t be heard anywhere else. Such attention to detail and quality should come as no surprise from one of the true masters of the game.
