I-Cue feat. Ill-Esha - When The Bass Drops E.P.

“When the Bass Drops” comes with the potential to absolutely enchant you: Massive trippy-funky dubstep-riffs meet with ill-esha´s unique soul voice – a magical acoustic tightrope walk between Dubstep, Hip-Hop, Soul and Trip-Hop as I-Cue himself calls it…. Trip-Step or Dub-Hop. Hailing from Vancouver now San Francisco based ill-esha burst onto the North American electronic scene as a soul vocalist featured on various releases for the likes of Breakbeat Science, Fokuz, and BluSaphir. Her multi-dimensional approach spans Glitch-Hop, Dubstep and Downtempo, which has set ill-esha apart amidst some of electronic music’s most groundbreaking acts: Releases on trendsetting labels as Muti Music, Daly City, Haunted Audio, Dub Police and many more are amongst the landmarks of her career.

envloop 006: One Year envloop! Out June 6, 2011

envloop006-150

One year of Envloop Records: A reason to celebrate for us, but also an opportunity to thank you, our audience.

Since Envloop began, we have come a long way, having built up the label as a haven for artists from around the globe and for electronic tunes from all different styles and genres. Artists such as TC Izlam, Soul Slinger, I-Cue, Kooky, Frozen Smoke, just to name a few…

Envloop stays true to it’s basic concept to be open not only to top artists, but also to encourage musical experiments. The 2000′s, so we were told, would only leave space for labels strictly specialized in their specific genres. We chose a different path: Tracks and artists from across the spectrum of genres, just as it was when electronic music imprints first started. The only standard across the label’s releases is the high quality. Continue reading…

DanBarrett | Frozen Smoke

Having gone though a number of line-up changes, Frozen Smoke is now stripped back once more to the bare essentials – Dan, computers, synths and his love for all things electronic, electro and eclectic.
Besides recent remixes for artists such as Hillberg, Der Cube, Mightiness, Kooky and I-Cue, over the years Dan has also remixed and remodelled works for Ladytron, Zion Train, Chumbawamba, Mulu and The Mighty Quark.
Amongst his other achievements : extensive tours throughout Europe, playing at Glastonbury on the legendary Glade Stage, counted the world famous DJ John Peel as a fan, performed music to cows in the Austrian hills, appeared naked on stage at an MTV awards show and shocked a plethora of European dub fans expecting something completely different…
After spending most of his life in and around Liverpool, UK; Frozen Smoke has now relocated to the lovely city of Linz, Austria – where he continues to develop his own particular blend of electro infused explorations in sound. He has also joined forces with Hillberg and Ozed in setting up Brathering Shandy Records, a electronic music label.
