i try to perform as honestly as possible — the soundbite borrowed from late dancer dudley williams for this record s second track could have been uttered by the mole himself. it s this candor that has allowed us to bear witness to a very marked and very audible transition from his days as a producer in montreal to becoming a part of the berlin scene. and what we have here is one result of that very explicit sonic metamorphosis. de la planet is our dyslexic subject s third studio album, one that stays true to his ethos of weird above all in the best possible sense. and yet it feels like something distinctly new. tapping his enormous reservoir of vinyl and sampling the odd film have acted as complement to the jaw-dropping arsenal of synthesizers at de la plante s disposal—a battery of machines he s been quietly improving his skills on during the past few years. or not so quietly, perhaps. the man himself would probably say -i m coming out of the woodshed-, and go off on a tangent about sonny rollins and his saint of a wife. but that s a story for another sheet.
circus company and the mole have long been making eyes at each other across the same crowded dancefloor. colin de la plante?s primary project is synonymous with the off-kilter corner of house music we like to spend our time dancing in, and the labels he releases on are close cousins of the circus troupe. from wagon repair to philpot, musique risquee to perlon, it?s a wonder that we haven?t worked together previously, but finally that?s been put right with little sunshine. stripped back, understated disco grooves have always been the bread and butter of the mole?s sound, while infectious, cyclical melodic patterns are equally important in making his unique version of house music. on the title track, those elements are presented with full force, but in between the driving rhythms linger the most gorgeous keys, bringing a mellow introspection to the track as a neat counterpoint to the energy of the drums and arpeggios
wow. now we re talking, all time classic material right here from the strictly archives. the legendary man of many hats armand van helden dropped this almighty, hypnotic slab of deepness under his mole people guise in the mists of 1995. a total deep house classic indeed. dreamy, driving, dubby, hypnotic, narcotic - it has it all. super long tracks, for the dj s to work and for the dancers to get fully lost in. break night is colossal, this one will literally transport the dance-floor to another dimension, guaranteed. sounding as fresh and as relevant as ever. timeless. ocean on the flip steps up the toughness factor with some super hard, swingin nyc drumz, but it still has that otherworldly edge that the a-side drenched us in previously. a near perfect record here, made available again, undoubtedly this will win a new legion of fans it s that good! this one s a tasty 2017 reissue and remaster, featuring both cuts, unedited, as per the original release way back when. essential stuff here. do not sleep.
sov is glad to welcome aboard the new family member for it’s 12th cat. the mole is a canadian artist known for his music boutique interpreting elements of disco, jazz, hip hop and funk. since this kind of game is also the core of our soul, we are happy to present 4 special tracks from him.
the snooze fest is over and we’re back in the saddle with the first output from colin la plante aka the mole aka half owner of this imprint. he’s been touring up a storm and playing out a lot of new music we’re excited to share with you this year.
spicy noodles are something colin thinks everyone can love…not one at a time…but by the bowl.
this four tracker definitely shows off “new directions” for the mole – nothing too outlandish mind you, but the path he chose with the title and crowd favourite “gelb grun blau” definitely has these tracks leaning towards the centre of a dj sets vs. beginning or end…spiralling kick drums with a fine grind blend of digital synths, analog synths, drum machines and the occasional samples here. vape-house anyone?
the closer “back in the studio game” is a beatless one created just for the sunrises of your life.
so here s the second maybe tomorrow me and jon are pretty happy about this the theme s the same, all about sharing seeing as the music will do a better job of explaining itself than i will, i ll let it do the talking and i hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
2 hypnotic house tracks with the the moles typical twisted disco atmosphere. back in the early 2000s colin de la plante developed a very unique language as producer, which he has constantly continued, perfected and varied until today. no matter if the moles productions made a move towards techno, minimal house or deep house: his great love for disco music always shines through in a very distinctive way, sometimes very obvious, sometimes hidden in the background. the 2 tracks that will be released on slices of life presents the moles hypnotic and amazing paranoid disco side.
the two part makers series is the result of a bourbon fueled studio jam involving four prolific producers, using an array of gear ranging from a modular synth to a farfisa organ. throw in a 6 part saxophone harmony, shake, stir, record and there you have it. makers.
dear you, so why am i starting a label? i guess i am trying to centralize my output. give it all some kind of unity. my friend jon berry (who works at kompakt and is running the label with me) has been bugging me for ages to do it and now seems the time. i ve had a great run thus far with all my buddy s labels, and i dont think i will stop as long as they still want me. but for the time being it made sense somehow that i do my own thing. give it a name - maybe tomorrow - and a face - vinyl.
the mole graces haunt music and this plane of existence with yet another sonic connection to the deepest corners of the ether house reality. a subtle combination of forgotten vinyl moments, childhood memories and modular synth alchemy. deep… yes.. yes!
new kanada welcomes the mole back into the fold with a heavy image two-tracker from deep in the forest. the slo-mo a-side “dog river” is heavy and raw and dripping with calcified disco echoes. tweaking distant bass, tugging percussion and psyched vocal loops. a serious main-floor builder. on the b-side, colin gets tougher and darker and crafts a potential blackout bomb. grinding pads mix with a morphing bassline to form a dubbed out late-night track - made for the mix.
charted by ernesto ferreyra. this ep is inspired by an egg dropping contest that was held at the hotel vancouver when i was a kid. all maner of apparatus were designed to help the eggs land safely after falling the 17 floors. all failed but one. parachutes malfunctioned. ballons drifted into obstructions. wings collasped. the winner: a jar of molasses. the egg was pushed into the center of a large jar full of the thick liquid and the jar was thrown over the side. the jar broke on the street below leaving the egg safe and sticky. i was once told that all jokes come from prison. i often think of those doing time while trying to remember some play on words like - whats the difference between a pickpocket and a peeping tom?..... - though that is one of redd foxxs gems i have a new joke i have yet to use - upon exiting a bathroom, regardless of its particular plumbing, tell the owner that you think their bidet is broken
the mole has been burrowing tunnels in electronic music circles for many years. based in montreal, he became known through releases on matthew jonsons wagon repair, collaborations with the label head and a consequential solo album for them. he performs with 5 turntables no less and appeals as much to the lovers of disco as to lo-fi electronica all the way to straight edged house heads and non-conformist jazz lovers.
the mole cooks up two slow burners for the warm northern nights. >nervous disid< emerges from somewhere between bobby konders and that old dance mania b-side you always want to play - but never have the nerve. thick fuzzy kicks, and jacked up toms - result in a heavy techno disco jam for the mixers and lovers.
>secret mummy< is a slo-mo romp into colins secret cookie factory, flavors are tough, fierce, and popping. 9 minutes of organico-inspired house music mixed with forgotten disco horns and old rusted cowbells.
the mole is back on musique risquée with his 3rd ep to date called dreamer keep on dreaming. each track on this record is a story about dreams. dreamer is this weird one you cant get rid of, the with the annoying voice following you around everywhere. oh my stomach is the mysterious black & white dream, with cigar reek and bad whiskey breath. last ditch is the action packed one, with its car chase and the usual neverending sex scene at the end. and usually after, you wake up and the record is over.
colin de la plante is the canadian bred and berlin-based the mole. his unique and abstract take on modern disco on labels like wagon repair and musique risque put him right at the top of my wishlist….. so after promises of fulfilling filthy fantasies and a big share in the norwegian oil fund these 2 golden nuggets were handed over!
you re the one is the first single taken from his forthcoming album as high as the sky which will be released on wagon repair in may. baby you re the one is fast out of the blocks with racing percussion and a plunging bass loop. a piercing metallic tone encircles a distorted vocal sample as subtle melodies rise to the surface of the mix, steadily intensifying to climax. on the flip side, crackbeat is a darker animal. kindling wild percussion carries an eerily distant key melody that supports a rich synth siren. teeming with activity, the synth melody is trailed by bubbling bass tones as a feral percussive drive chases to close.
das kanadischen dj-team, feste größe auf dem wagon repair label und bekannt für zahlreiche singleveröffentlichungen unter anderem auf revolver und kompakt fand nun in 2008 den richtigen zeitpunkt, um ihr erstes album zu veröffentlichen.neben der schon bekannen -aber überarbeiteten- wagon repair single >baby youre the one< gibts nun feinsten deep house auf die ohren, und, als perfekte compilation für den diesjährigen heißen sommer, sogar karibische rhythmen dazu, die durchs ohr direkt ins tanzbein schwingen.

the much lauded no.19 music serves up another excellent all canadian affair for its next ep:behind it is producer & label co-owner nitin, with remixes from live specialist the mole and labelboss jonny white aka art department who serves up his own hypnotic take on things.no.19 music has been going back to its roots recently, bringing to the fore a steady stream ofincredible underground music from torontos sons & daughters. 2016 closed out with thestandout single, full circle from art department in collaboration with ad/d, seeing supportacross the board for the return of jonny whites much loved moniker. however it is the longstanding partnership of white & nitin that is the true central pillar of the no.19 story, and its thelatter that offers up here what is almost certainly his most impressive work to date
transmitting out of birmingham and representing the cream of the sleek tech house crop, adam shelton s one records continues to forge valuable connections with the global scene while staying true to the label s roots. shaun reeves and tuccillo have been doing their thing for long enough to know how to throw down a surefooted deep groover, and that s just what you get with -smile-. meanwhile the mole does a sterling job of working some complex percussion into the bones of the track and creating a hypnotic, understated version that will appeal to the freakier end of the floor.
the double drop label present the second of three parts from the invisible cities collective, made up of luca c & brigante plus guests. following the summers moments in between (featuring ivan smagghe remixes), in my garden finds the guys carving a sumptuous slo-mo house groove, with a rather special secret collaborator on vocal duties. the result is something lush and unique. the original is backed with a fine interpretation from the mole, and the super cool edge of our love completes the package. the new music from invisible cities doesnt stop there. next up is part 3, sunkissed with remixes from apiento and special dubs from mad professor.
repress !! following 2013s fantastical heat crime, tim further explores his unique take on house music with two original tracks which make stylistic nods to the past but lead us elatedly to a place of uncommon and personal vision. on the a side we have squiggles, a late night piece of tentacled whimsy. a joyful frolic in a fishy stream under the stars and in the japanese garden of your soul. like u want me 2 is a missive from yearning loins to a beloved recipient, whilst were both on earth in these fleshy suits.
180g vinyl only. >pourquoi pas< is the french for >why not<. why not such a title. why should we not break the boundaries of established genres of electronic music in an orgasm of modern psychedelic experimentations and grooves, and come back to the roots of our sexy house music all in one single record. why shouldn t we have the mole on the remix duty. why wouldn t this record be dedicated to our brothers refugees, we are one people. pourquoi pas!
turquoise blue recordings was founded with a simple aim: releasing house music that is deep, sometimes dark but always groovy and underground. it is therefore no surprise the label is now releasing an ep by finnish born producer, phonogenic. with previous releases on 20:20 vision, turbo, moodmusic and others, tuomas salmela aka phonogenic has spent most of his recent time in the studio where he is preparing his forthcoming album. despite this, he did find time to capture the true essence of turquoise blue with this brand new ep, bringing us three originals and a collaborative remix from canadian producers the mole and hreno. the ep will be released as a limited edition180g baby blue coloured vinyl with a full colour sleeve on reverse board
