With a successive spree of stern yet overtly melodic club offerings behind him for German label Plasmapool, Estonia based producer Mord Fustang steps up to break the silence that has followed last September’s ‘Champloo’ with his inaugural release of 2013 in the form of ‘Taito’.
Enhancing his diverse hold on melodic play alongside the usual suspenseful rises of a Mord Fustang-branded production, Fustang starts off the New Year right with a strong original offering.
Out today on Beatport.
Always leading with quality over quantity, label head honcho Miles Dyson is back at his own Plasmapool imprint for the release of another melodic yet robust outing in ‘Evo’. Teeming with fidgety synth leads and intense stadium-worthy chord play, his grinding sound scope of sturdy kicks and piercing lead play is a testament to underdog productions of a moderately high calibre. But in an age where familiar names are the comfort food of international club land, Dyson’s ‘Evo’ conquers the norm with considerable strength.
Those seeking new land amid the vast sea of modern Electro House enthusiasts have leapt at the aural motions of Joe Garston of late. With a successive spree of stern yet overtly melodic club offerings behind him for German label Plasmapool, the Liverpool based producer drops his seventh single release of the year in the form of ‘American Wasteland’.
In a somewhat rare feel good extension of the genre, Garston’s uplifting melodic surges are matched with a sturdy collection of ultra-treble synth leads to spark one of the more powerful British offerings to the digital market of late. As the Mersey’s affinity for eclectic club talent grows more and more promising by the year, Garston’s fresh-faced Electro stylings are sure to make for a promising post-summer season for this rising British asset.
Returning to the forefront for round six of his successful signing to the imprint of Miles Dyson, Joe Cain, better known as Joe Garston, follows up the Hardwell-approved ‘Random Hero‘ with yet another well-crafted gem for Plasmapool. In the same vein as his previous comings to the label, ‘Forever’ sees the Liverpudlian blend melodic lead play with intricate Electro House to make up a solid sixth signature original to his belt.
While the excessive flanger use that complements one section of the track may at times be a bit too much, the overall infectious and distinguished sound may not outshine that of its predecessor but makes for further believes that Garston is one of Plasmapool’s most dexterous producers to date.
Following on from the release of ‘The Promise’ and more, Liverpool’s Joe Garston returns for round five of his unprecedented studio outlet through Miles Dyson’s Plasmapool imprint. If 2011 and ‘Top Of The World’ in particular taught us anything about this rising Plasmapool protégé, it is that as far as intricate electro-house oriented productions are concerned, Garston is well worth the extra attention.
For his freshly unveiled third release in 2012 then, Garston blends an utmostly playful synth-ish sound with an enigmatic setting of wobbles. Despite running with a sound very similar to those of its four predecessors, this Liverpool resident continues to prove that there is something untiring and highly infectious about Plasmapool’s signature sound if you will.
Following in the footsteps of countryman Mord Fustang, Estonia’s latest EDM export Probe returns to make another appearance on Miles Dyson’s Plasmapool label – an imprint well-known by its successful efforts in discovering and bringing up new talents. Not one to get lost in a crowd, Probe has already proven a significant force to Plasmapool’s proceedings in 2012. Coming off the release of ‘Ultimate‘ last month, ‘Time Machine’ is not only the Estonian’s third instalment on the label but further testament to his versatile style. Flipping from an emotive and sweepy chord progression to considerably heavier electro-house oriented beats, ‘Time Machine’ fortifies Probe as a promising household name under the Plasmapool banner.
Responsible for some of the most revolutionary tracks over the past year, including his much talked about break-through single ‘Lick The Rainbow’ and the Deadmau5-influenced ‘We Are Now Connected‘, Estonian 21 year old incognito that is Mord Fustang makes his first mark in 2012, coming out with a diverse, new four-track EP. Running with a structure similar to those that have carried himself as a DJ and producer from the outset, the EP’s headliner ‘Windwaker’ draws on playfully distorted leads and robust beats to form something of a captivating contender for Miami. Though the remaining three may not hold the same catchy elements as the aforementioned headliner, ‘Super Fever’, ‘Welcome To The Future’ and ‘The Majestic’ sure do play their roles as essential pieces well, contributing to a package with a purpose to shed light on innovativeness and futuristic beats.
Estonia’s new kid on the block Probe may not posses the hallmarks of a household name, but his indefinite explosion to life comes with perceptive force. Joining the ranks of German imprint Plasmapool, his latest efforts may well be the tipping point for this young and restless producer from the Baltic shores. While its intricate weavings of distant melodic play may spell out a digressive turn to the ambient, ‘Ultimate’ is an aptly attributed banger in disguise. Putting feel-good flavours at the forefront of its sizeable progressions, this outing’s digression into the well-manifested realms of wobble-educed Electro House make for a qualified pairing of muscle and melodics that compliment each other with a rare sense of unified energy.

Making his debut in mid 2011 with the somewhat sensational ‘Top Of The World’, it’s safe to say the arrival of Liverpool’s 20 year old Joe Cain, better known as Joe Garston, has caused some serious stir in clubland lately as he now ups the ante for his third single outing on Plasmapool, the Germany-based record label also responsible for the upbringing of Mord Fustang and Miles Dyson among others. Reminiscent of his aforementioned debut release in its intricate build-ups and ravishing appeal, The Promise is far beyond just a fairly unkown producer’s effort to establish a name in this competetive industry but rather a noteworthy contribution to an experimental face of electro-house. Producer and record label alike have played fairly large roles in the movement of Dance music over the past six months and as this new single is an excellent showcase for sharp sounds and the popular way of borrowing elements from various genres within Electronic Dance Music, both Garston and Plasmapool kickstart the new year in glamour.
Drawing from the sounds of Deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner in that beafy and heavy-stepping bottom layer, Mord Fustang releases his seventh ever single since his inception as a releasing producer in late January of this year. Seeing recurrent support from the likes of Martin Solveig and others, the most prominent Plasmapool signing to date has shown signs of full-blown production knack and innovativeness in terms of the widespread contrast each and every offering boasts. Primarily recognized by his game-changing release of Lick The Rainbow earlier this year, the Estonia-based producer is one of the most essential underdogs of 2011 along the lines of his ingeniousness and characteristically playful synth sounds featured in a richly melodious interlude.
