For ‘Patience’, Will Sparks borrows elements from his much-loved house genre while seamlessly integrating a hardstyle production that results in a truly invigorating track. The track is yet another example of Will Sparks’ willingness to experiment with unique arrangements in a genre that he’s already dominated. 

Lubelski – ‘Happy Accidents’

The premise for the album, ‘Happy Accidents’ is pretty interesting — during lockdown Lubelski ran a weekly modular synth jam show on the Dirtybird Twitch that saw him going down a wormhole of improvised bleeps, bloops and original vocals for hours at a time. It was erratic and strange, a kind of embodiment of a time that was especially tough on young artists in exile from the clubs. Claude VonStroke loved it so much he asked Lubelski to create an album around the concept, which also caught the eye of Twitch who offered him an official partnership on the platform. So for the whole summer Lubelski jammed on his modular setup live on Twitch, asked fans what sounds they liked the most in the chat and in his Discord, then turned those sounds into an amazing album primed for dancefloors and festival stages.

EdOne – ‘Uncontrolled Thoughts’

Spanish DJ/producer EdOne, stands as one of the most authentic rising talents on the underground circuit, championing his own uniquely measured strain of techno that proves both progressive and yet familiar. Making his second coming with Bedrock, the contemporary star hits us with an authentic three-track EP, ‘Uncontrolled Thoughts’ to stir the senses.

Elliot Fitch – ‘What You Do To Me’

“I made this track [‘What You Do To Me’] this summer, which is heavily inspired by the 90’s era of house music: melodic pads and pianos, heavy drums, a catchy vocal and a high level of energy. All to give you that melancholic feeling, which really characterizes that era.”

For the artwork, we teamed up with our boy Zachokami to create something to emphasize the message of mass awakening.”
