zwei sind sicher besser als einer. nach lory d und fadi mohem tritt der in toronto ansässige produzent graham bertie aka nautiluss zum zweiten mal auf dem seilscheibenpfeiler an und markiert damit die 10. gesamtveröffentlichung des labels.
in liquid sky and reak, nautiluss puts his skillful use of percussive elements into action, completed by playful synth lines and thus creating heavy bass vibes which wont let you keep your feet still. however, theres no such thing as a comfort-zone for him! inky, surely the hidden gem on this ep, shows a different side of his production skills: starting like a 4/4 warehouse banger, it gets a full on twist à,,,, la nautiluss. an energetic ending to his first release on seilscheibenpfeiler...
reflections is the spectral sound debut of nautiluss, the primary project from torontos graham bertie. his career began, as many do, with practicing mixing records in his bedroom before cutting his teeth in warehouse raves in montreal. after many collaborations and heavy touring early in his career, bertie has chosen to stay in more than go out, leading to a new direction in his music. dont let this lead you to believe hes a slouch in the live department.
slammin 4-tracker from canadian producer (audio culture, turbo, hemlock) featuring jackin, club-ready heaters with melodies that hold up outside the party. guest vin sol (soo wavey, unknown to the unknown). support by martyn, james friedman, laurent garnier, alinka ...
having released on some of the most influential labels, it is with great honor that audio culture welcomes the montreal based artist, nautiluss, to the family. the solstice ep consists of three tracks and finds nautiluss exploring warmer, more euphoric territories, and he does it right whilst still retaining the boldness and toughness of his past work. the ep flows effortlessly from the big string euphoria on solstice to the darker tones on corvus passing the slightly off kilter shuffle on neptune. without a doubt these will heat up any dancefloor in the cold winter months ahead.
with his second ep for turbo recordings, nautiluss pushes against the darker edges of modern techno and house, forging a sound that has earned support from supreme tastemakers like martyn, untold, gesaffelstein, and ivan smagghe.
already championed by martyn & untold - who put out nautiluss collaboration with skywave on his hemlock imprint - and fresh off an excellent remix for zzt, hes probably the closest any new canadian artist comes to fitting into the new uk bass scene

the latest single off the partys over earth lp romances the grindstone with five and a half minutes of hard labor in the analog mines.
canadian producer >nautiluss< aka graham douglas bertie of thunderheist (of underground dance hit >jerk it< on big dada) and uk singer/songwriter simon lord (simian/black ghosts) under his lord skywave alter ego, joined forces after meeting on a high-spirited liquor-sodden north american tour. lauded by their peers mistajam, giles peterson, mary anne hobbs, and sinden, their hyped sound, exploring fresh sonic territory has already had national airplay. their first collaboration >ultraviolet< is a finely tuned piece of dark, tense and spectral noise classic, cavernous after-hours club music, backed with the instrumental >bleu monday<.
the third vinyl from the hand stamped cool ranch label features two more jacking disco-house bangers with a 90s chicago feel from chrissy.nautiluss delivers a rave-inspired remix on and you know it-. chicagos paul johnson brings a smoother remix on bi-coastal with a sunrise vibe.
humans latest ep emerges with obvious maturation, each track carrying a depth of sound, evolved production, and focused vision, while never straying from their early commitment to make music for the dancefloor. the duo recently played sxsw and cmw and are set to tour with young empires this summer.
over the last year i have traveled to canada frequently for gigs and got to know the small but healthy electronic music scene there. cities like montreal, vancouver and toronto have brought forth many established artists over the past few years, such as egyptrixx, azari & iii, basic soul unit, jacques greene, lunice and sixtoo, but 2012 has seen a new breed of no-nonsense house and techno producers come up via labels like turbo recordings and naked lunch. this *dovercourt ep* features three very talented producers: kevin mcphee, nautiluss and gingy. their tracks are a dedication to their hometown of toronto. being removed from the house/techno epicentres of berlin and london, these three are much less interested in what is fashionable or trendy, and more in bringing us straight to the point, no frails jacking house music. i have been playing these three extensively in my dj sets, and i hope you will too. so out to toronto, this one is for you! enjoy. martyn
