This new project has been set up to showcase a diverse range of electronic styles from techno to ambient. On Under The Weather we see the welcome return of ground-breaking producer Domu AKA Dominic Stanton. It contains three contrasting tracks, one breakbeat, one four-four and one downtempo. The constant theme that runs throughout is GROOVE not BPM.
Dominic has had previous releases on some of the world’s most influential electronic labels including Ninja Tune, Reinforced, Compost and 2000black.
About this release:
Sector 12/12 is the brainchild of Mr Shift who used to run influential label TrebleO alongside Dominic Stanton (Domu, Umod, Rima, Yotoko, Sonar Circle). It is therefore only right that this new label hosts the return of Shift’s creative partner and long time friend Domu.
This three track EP encompasses everything the pair love about electronic music. Heavy hitting bass juxtaposed with sombre hardcore pads (Rain All Day VIP) through to Theo Parrish style pitched down house layered with vintage Photek bass (Sunshrine VIP).
It wouldn’t be a Domu EP without a quirky hip hop instrumental (Rain Or Shine) so Dominic pulled this beat from the unreleased Umod archive. Heard here for the first time in its finished state it rounds off the release nicely with its dusty samples, cheerful bass and uplifting hooks.
About the label:
Sector 12/12 will launch in April 2014 releasing deep electronica, house, techno, downtempo and ambient music.
Breakbeat tracks could take the form of Future Garage, Drum And Bass, Juke, 2 Step or (ideally) anywhere in between.
Each track released on Sector 12/12 will be thought provoking, profound or poignant. We are passionate about songs that take you on a journey and create emotion. Our aim is to curate a bank of timeless music.
Inspiration comes from labels like Reinforced, Good Looking, Planet E, Mo Wax and Delsin due to their desire to be different and strong vision. They also delivered the full package of great sounding music alongside great looking artwork.
Each EP will be made available digitally via all main retail stores and streaming sites.
