Reelhouse Records

reelhouse

I’ve been in discussions the past 48 hours with CN Williams, head of Swansea-based electronic music label, Reelhouse Records. Clifford has kindly agreed to sign several forthcoming Wez G releases… I had a busy week last week, with several tracks having the finishing touches applied to them in the mastering studio. It is pleasing to be able to announce that the debut EP of my Megman vs Wez G project is all ready to go. Boom Beat Zoo EP will demonstrate the exciting fusion of live guitars with electronica. Megman Merrett, a talented Caldicot musician with much experience, has been hammering out hits in the studio with me for a couple of years now… Boom Beat Zoo EP, so called because of the animal association with most of its tracks, is an exciting debut EP, which will hopefully start to generate us a fanbase and assist us in funding further Megman vs Wez G EPs and hopefully a studio album…. The aim is, that once we have finally discovered our true sound, that we take this unique project to live audiences. Boom Beat Zoo offers a glimpse of the sound we are establishing. It covers a wide variety of genres, appealing to electronic aficionados as well as those who prefer acoustic music. Some of it is Cafe Del Mar-esque chillout, others more dancefloor friendly bangers and the epic Kicking Squirrels reminds me, as the producer, very much of the sound of legendary Rock n Roll band, the Doors. I’ve been hard at Ableton to give the project its necessary instrumental oomph and it’s been a steep learning curve… We have about 40-50 unfinished jams ready to progress and we are hoping that the public get behind the release and spend a few pennies on helping to finance the continuation of Megman vs Wez G. Reelhouse Records have taken the plunge and signed the debut EP and we look forward to striking up a successful business relationship with perhaps Wales’ finest independent dance music label. When you look through the Reelhouse back catalogue it is a bit daunting to see such luminary figures releasing tunes there, as Byron Stingly and Lenny Fontana, to name but a few… We hope that our sounds are fully appreciated by the Reelhouse market.   The second new track to be released on Reelhouse Records is a Wez G original: Shine Melody is a funky touch-edged disco…

It’s a beaming hot summer and it’s always nice to get some fresh, sunny tunes to while away the time… This mix goes a little more four-four than usual and might be a post-sunset Cafe Del Mar session… It’s (dolphin) deep and funky and quite acoustic… I enjoyed it, especially going more full-flow towards the end… :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.

Holiday Romance

We’ve all been there, cosied up with a nice partner on a holiday of a lifetime, be it a beach, a nice foreign city, or just camping in the forest, a holiday romance is always memorable. I was having a dig on Beatport for some of the finest of this summer’s chillout beats for this mix and as I spun the tunes, I felt they had a soft romantic love theme predominant… I managed to include one of the productions from my new Megman Vs Wez G project which I hope you enjoy. There’s some nice numbers here and the mix builds from around 90bpm up to some housier 120bpm at the finale. Hopefully the set will give you fond memories of your Holiday Romance. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. Mojo Rising – On The Horizon (Original Mix) [Cold Busted] 2.

Sizzling Summer

Well – Summer is finally here… We had a steaming hot end of May and into June, jubilee weekend was pretty horrible but let’s hope that this year proves hot… Lots of barbecues and beach trips. I’ll be off to the best surfing beach, here in Wales, Llangenith Sands, on the Gower Peninsula, as often as possible… Of course, in the hot weather we need some decent chilling vibes and Sizzling Summer lays down some nice laidback grooves to accompany whatever you choose to do in the heat.

Frosty Blue

Frosty blue is a chillout mix, the 50th set in the Wez G DJ Mix series. We’ve had a mild winter though the frost is starting to bite right now. In Caldicot, where Wez G is based, only the River severn separates him from the hippest of chill towns, Bristol. It is the frosty blue of the river that keeps the muffled sounds of Massive ATtack from rising out constantly and you can even see Portishead from across the water. Both of these seminal trip hop bands are included on the mix as indeed are some other bighitters, interspersed with the latest upfront chill from Beatport. The chillout mixes have proved the most popular of all Wez G’s mixes. To celebrate 50 mixes in the series look out for the special torrents of the whole series (so far) that will be floating about. 1. Erman Erim – Hypnagogia (Original Mix) [Beatwax Records] 2. Morcheeba – The Sea [Indochina] 3. Deep Fog – Infinity Life (Original Mix) [Mistiquemusic] 4. Deeper Connection – No More (Original Mix) [Sonata Recordings] 5. Flunk – On My Balcony [Kriztal] 6.

The Hypnotist

cafe del mar

This is a chillout classic, from the original Cafe Del Mar Series. It is in #EoTVibe as hypnotism is linked to mental health sometimes, an alternative therapy, perhaps? It kind of sounds how one with no knowledge of the system might imagine a mental health doctor / nurse / carer talking to a patient in ‘therapy sessions’. To be honest I know little about Hypnotism… But this song is emancipating in some way. I hear hypnotists are used for smoking cessation a lot, which could be handy.

Autumn Leaves

Another wet and cold summer and already autumn is upon us. Leaves, golden brown, scatter the floor in the country parks of South Wales and the wind and rain are ceaseless. This is another chillout special in the Wez G Mix series and blends in old and new, some recognisable, some maybe not so, all melodic in harmony and compiled in a way to calm, inspire and relax you as the days draw in and we head into the winter darkness.

Island Hop

A few years ago I went Island hopping in the South Pacific… It’s great fun, a perfect paradise… This soundtrack is ideal for lazing away on a yacht, checking into the beaches, diving in coral reefs and catching a bit of surf… OK – It is winter, but in the South Pacific it’s always hot and Snow White Winter Chill (my previous chillout mix) was received well so I thought it about time to treat you to some more mellow vibes… There are sounds across the board with Bristol represented by Portishead, Thievery Corporation and Röyksopp among the big guns, and a Chris Rea bootie chucked in also… It hops from a calm 90bpm up to a full flow 132bpm, towards the end. It’s a perfect soundtrack to the start of your weekend as you prepare to go out somewhere nice. Tropical Island bliss with Wez G… Keep Hopping! :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. DJ Pippi – On This Island (Original Mix) [Extremely House Music] 2. High Low – Midnight Sun [Lovely Mood] 3. Lux – One Hundred Billion Stars [Hed Kandi Records] 4.

Snow White Winter Chill

It’s snowing in the UK and that means everything stops. Roads are shut, schools are closed, trains don’t run and the shops are full of panic-buyers. This Christmas, I thought I’d slow down like the rest of the snow-swept nation and freeze my turntables with some icy chilled melodies. I didn’t feel the need to go above 100bpm so get relaxed, pump up the stereo and keep your eye on the thermometer. Merry Christmas one and all. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.
