Hot on the heels from two three-track EP’s for Deadmau5’s Mau5trap Recordings, Scottish electro crusader Nom De Strip re-unites with Toronto peer Hatiras for round six of their collaborative affair with ‘Nippleodeon’ following last year’s ‘Saucy’. Rallying scattered bleeps, rerunning vocal chants and swift tones buzzing in the background, ‘Nippleodeon’ fits well with the forward-thinking sound scope that Chris Lake’s Rising Music imprint has continued to champion, placing minimalistic electro house against a strong tropical backdrop.

Slated for release April 22nd.

Canadian Electro-stomper Richard Billis, better known to the world as Lazy Rich, returns to Rising Music following last year’s ‘Damage Control’ with a new original release featuring Gita Lake, the wife of Gita Lake and vocalist of ‘Sundown’ and ‘Stand Up’ fame.

While the original leaps from subtle piano play and Gita’s discordant yet infectious vocal line to pulsing low-end drops, the accompanying remix sees John Dahlback on hand to chop ‘Insomnia’ into a bleep-happy formula.

With last year’s Beatport #1 ‘Funky Vodka’ still doing the rounds, formative LA-based House maverick TJR is back for his fourth original release on Chris Lake’s Rising Music label.

Pumped with the same tectonic charm that has seen Chris Lake embrace his tightly woven club cuts in the past, TJR’s stubborn lead play is matched with a heavyset of mechanical beats that command aural observation from the outset. In an age where the influence of a peak time number remains crucial to the widespread Dance resurgence, this quirky take on the familiar genre corroborates the rising infamy of this 21st century Electro crusader.

Always eclectic and rarely found rooted to one locality, globetrotting British producer turned label head Chris Lake has had another solid year on all professional fronts. Back behind the stronghold of his Rising Music imprint, Lake collects the finest spoils of his impending musical powerhouse with a fresh nod to the potential of post-summer clubbing.

Placing classic Electro House synth play against a strong tropical backdrop, Nom De Strip’s ‘Give It To Me’ successfully sets the diverse cluster of tracks in motion, with ‘It’s All Good’ from Birdee exercising strong and uplifting House hallmarks from the outset. While returning label contributor Jim Breese and Chris Coco deal in solid House beats and infectious sample work, Paul Strive’s elegant grooves and sharp laser leads brings a new energy to the ranks of rhythmically charged club cuts. Finished off by Fire Flowerz all-out House overhaul of ‘It’s All Good’, Lake sets a precedent for the quality of independent Dance music despite in spite of the colder backdrop of 2012.

Still considered to be one of Sweden’s most diversely tailored House assets to date, John Dahlback follows up the May release of ‘Take This Thing Back‘ with a heavyset second instalment on Chris Lake’s Rising Music label in a new two-track EP entitled ‘Panic’.

As highlighted in his collection of exclusive previews set to drop throughout 2012, the coarse leads and typically intense beats of ‘Panic’ play out particularly well as the package’s title track while ‘What’s Up Now’ blend acid-esque and gritty instrumentals with an attitude-filled vocal line to round off an EP that furthers the widespread belief that John Dahlback’s sound has never been confined to one solitary genre.

Update (19/11): Official video for ‘Panic’ has now been released.

As an eclectic visionary, Chris Lake’s Rising Music label has continued to deal in sophisticated doses of unpredictable Dance music. But in a bid to extend their already extensive back catalogue of quality music from across the spectrum, Scottish Electro crusader Nom De Strip sets the tone ahead of his debut on Mau5trap Recordings with a two-track EP alongside Swedish peer Peo De Pitte.

Showcasing croaking bass and those all-too-familiar pitch-defying leads, headline single ‘Big Knobbler’ sees Nom De Strip and De Pitte bring their take on the burly Electro House more commonly associated with the earlier works of Tommy Trash, leaving room for Nom De Strip’s own ‘Suplex’ single to round off the package with wobbles and beeps.

Formative LA-based House maverick TJR, a shining presence on the American House scene from the outset of his Techno rooted induction into the industry, has shown few signs of slowing down over the past couple of years. Following up on his Beatport-topping ‘Funky Vodka‘ and last year’s remix of Chris Lake and Nightriders’ ‘NYC‘, TJ Rozdilsky returns to Chris Lake’s Rising Music imprint for round three with ‘Same Old Fool’. Building around a fitting sample from Aretha Franklin’s ‘One Step Ahead’, TJR can be found basking in the realms of chunky Tech House and ornamented energy in this latest addition to his belt.

First to bat for the remix package, QiDD is on hand to give us his mesmerizing House take, with Zoolanda and Son!k providing the package’s two heavier-set remodels.
