    Guy J - 1000 Words CD1

    Guy J - 1000 Words CD1

    This week's throwback Thursday mix album has a special place in my heart and came at a tough emotional time in my life. I started running marathons and these two mixes were a must in my musical arsenal to attack the hilly miles near where I lived and trained.

    Now world-famous and respected by his peers, running his own Lost&Found label, Guy J was/ is one of Bedrock's biggest finds, having regularly appeared on the label since his debut in 2007. '1000 Words' is his second artist album, after 2008's 'Esparanza'. Much like that LP, 1000 Words is part mixed and part unmixed: the first two discs play out continuously, while the third compiles club versions of tracks from the first two. It shows the Israeli producer moving through a range of different styles, from melodic house to atmospheric downtempo, while maintaining a sense of narrative throughout. Guest appearances come from the vocalist Miriam Vega. 1000 Words was available on vinyl as well as CD.

    CD1 gives a nod to classical composition, taking the form of a series of movements, as Guy J mixes, segues and joins the dots between individual tracks to create an end result that is greater than the sum of all its parts. Opening with a swirl of muted bells and atmospheric pads, the lush opening 3-track sequence is concluded with the gorgeous, heavenly vocals of Miriam Vaga. Just when you think you know what s coming next, the soaring, melodic shower of Fall Star , Guy J lets the spirit of the Mad Professor into the studio and spins into a fizzing dub experiment ( The Right Place ), before getting horizontal and beatless with the melancholy beauty of My Organ Friend , to draw the second movement to a close. Spica wouldn t be out of place on the Bladerunner movie soundtrack, as it cuts to the pulsating disco swing of Electric Tale with a nod to Giorgio Moroder and morphs and breaks down into the spiralling, ecstatic chords of Lamur , before flowing into the distant storm of a perfect sunrise moment ( I Lost My Head ). The majestic beats reprise of Stay Cow and the stunning finale of Fly (once gain featuring Miriam Vaga), bring to a close what can only be described as a listening experience that has been heaven sent. Imagine being able to create your perfect DJ set; having the skill as an artist to create all the music you want to play; all the subtle emotional nuances, mood swings and changes of direction at your fingertips.

    Guy J - 1000 Words CD2

    Guy J - 1000 Words CD2

    CD2 is packed with expansive dancefloor creations. In classic Guy J fashion, this is a musically dense and diverse trip that is as dynamic as it is organic, gradually progressing, turning up the pressure, keeping you hanging on until the very last drop has poured out of the speakers! From the deep, swinging, handclapping grooves of the opening sequence of Doves , Limbo and Easy Can Be , with their subtle, uplifting, intelligent beauty, this is a true journey by DJ, a master artist at work. As the mood moves towards the deep, throbbing intensity with lights down low ( My Thought Of You , Sahara and Teva ), it s easy to become lost in the swirling electronic music as Guy J pushes emotion buttons, exploring the psyche of the dance, exploring possibilities, forging ahead into the future. The full-length club mixes gathered on the unmixed CD3 rounds of this superb package in style, dedicated to bringing any self-respecting DJ s record collection up to speed with a selection of some of Guy J s finest moments from 1000 Words. From the majestic opening notes of Doves , he first explores deep house vibes with an opening trio of low-slung grooves sprinkled with melodic flourishes, Detroit techno influences and dub

    Chris Fortier – Bedrock Compiled And Mixed CD2

    As the sound of thunder and deep atmospheric effects signal the start of CD2, Women Of Colour's ‘Elemental’ trickles through the speakers onto Deep C and Randall Jones’ percussion driven ‘The One’, with its smokey sax samples that ease the mood into a deep drop courtesy of Chris's studio partner Neil Kolo, whose solo project Nova marks a turning point in the cd, its deep and trippy percussion leading into a sublime break before driving straight into the hypnotic ‘Gasp’ by Dan Morris & Shylock.
    Chris's friend Steve Porter pops up once more with John Debo as we get 'Deported'. A bit of oriental flavour is sprinkled in from Hong Kong producer Tszpun as the mix moves subtly along and into Steve Porter's massive single ‘Nordica’ lifts the pace a few notches, as the tough, house chords and vocals of Coco Da Silva's ‘@Night’ erupt, you find yourself getting drawn in even deeper. John Graham and Steve Porter's ‘Two Days On Landsdown’, a track briefly unsigned at the time but which became a monster. Rounding off the cd we have one of Chris's favourite artists Angel Moraes with the tough I-Jack remix of ‘Turn It Up’ before the final track from Chris himself, ‘Losing Wait’ making sure you are in for the ride right till the end, an amazing end to an amazing cd.

    Chris Fortier – Bedrock Compiled And Mixed CD1

    CD1 starts with a nice sublime cut from Universal Agents that people may think pays homage to the Tigerhook Corp, but there is a reason for that as one of its members was actually involved in the production, working alongside the mighty G-Pal. The excellent Jay Tripwire continues this deep intro, before the massive smash hit that is BLH's Marscarter (John Debo and Steve Porter's remix) which oozes a raw yet perfect bass led house track from an era long since passed.
    Things head off in a deeper direction as we glide through Thomas Penton and Luis Dura's brooding Control Factor, sweeping deeper still into the lush deep house of Illinton's interpretation of Choc Electrique's ‘Edge Of Time’ into a track from promising producer Haris with a track that was given exclusively to Fortier entitled ‘Touched By Dub’. Its classic time once more as a track from around 1992 is inserted, Dearboy's ‘Greyclouds 9’ and people may recognise the sample from God Within's seminal classic, ‘Raincry’. Ben Camp's ‘Timewreck’ is up next, as Mara grip it and reinterpret it leading into the massive collaboration between Bill Hamel and London boys Swain & Snell, resulting in the fresh sound of Future. Chris sprinkles some breaks into the mix from Meat Katie as the cd ends with the soothing yet disturbingly dirty Chab mix of Sunscape & Chris Dee's ‘Generik’, leaving you gasping for more.
