Starting out around 5 years ago, as an internet radio station set up by dj paddy freeform, universal vibes has grown into a new platform for deep electronic music accross genre boundaries, encompassing web radio, syndicated radio shows, editorial content and events.
2007 is the year we decided to step up the game, and to this end we are proud to announce the launch of universal vibes records. Launching in August, we will release a series of digital only releases by artists such as tim scott, surra, Jafar, andy touchfingers and paddy's own productions and collaborations. in october we'll test the waters with a vinyl sampler followed early 2008 with a CD compilation of the digital releases.....
So to celebrate this milestone, and also to raise the bar of our events we'd like to announce our newest and biggest residency at Herbal in the heart of Shoreditch. While our previous residencies have been fairly intimate and focussed on site creator Paddy Freeform alongside special guests, for this one we're focussing on the website and brand new label with its merry band of funksters. We’ll be showcasing the artists who will be releasing material in an exhaustive schedule in the next 12 months and who will feature on our forthcoming compilation album early in 2008
We’ll be utilising the full club to give us 2 rooms of typically diverse, deep, soulful and fresh music, based around the two in house radio shows that feature monthly on universal vibes
Room 1: shakedown sessions: deep and electronic technoid house business.
This room will feature the sounds of deep, emotive, electronic house music, for the launch alongside Paddy Freeform, we have artizan music's Jafar, who was reponsible for the first digital release, don't rush to find love and will also feature on the third with his Latin shades, we're also going to be featuring a techy set from darko viric who is currently working on a single for us, and Jafar will also feature again as one half of Poussez live. Poussez have just released a single on Jafar's own artizan records which is creating a buzz with all the right house djs and we're signing some of their stuff to universal vibes
Room 2: freestyle blend: eclectic dancefloor soulful business
This room will feature the more eclectic freestyle sound, which will twist up the genres into a writhing groove and throw it right back onto the dancefloor kicking and whooping!
Featuring Tim Scott, whose hard to pigeonhole beats feature on two universal vibes releases in the coming months, alongside surra, an up-and-coming London based DJ, producer and remixer. His remixing and collaboration credits have included: Jeremy Ellis, Max Cole and Spengler on labels such as Amalgama, Other Worlds, Eye 4 Eye and Beyondjazz, Surra has a killer forthcoming EP on Universal Vibes and we'll be no doubt hearing some of his new material on the night. Upstairs we'll also be joined by a guest all the way from sunny spain, enrique domenech from fusionova records has been a regular on universal vibes for the last year and he'll be dropping in for an exclusive dj set at our herbal debut...
So as you can see, its all about breaking the new artists, who will feature on forthcoming singles and the compilation album rather than going for the typical big name headliner, and we're confident that these djs will rock the crowd we've built up over the last couple of years as we enter the next phase in our development and kick off our bi-monthly residency at Herbal
