Les says “3 Beat Records is an institution, I have shopped there since it was a tiny stall in Quiggans and still do so 18 years later. I worked there for many happy years too, so its always been close to my heart. Its the musical beating pulse that drives Liverpools dance scene and it will be great to be back again”

Cirez D – Stockholm Marathon/The Journey

 cirez d 3beat

More Cirez D from the prydz boy in techno mode, and the 3 Beat lads are again excited about it!

‘Stockholm Marathon’ is a more straight up techno track from Eric than of recent, but with a sprinkle of his magic, and then ‘The Journey’ is a tough club track with crazy drum rolls and looped spoken vocal thats nuts and rocks!

With support from Dubfire, Axwell, Sasha and Fanciulli already – these again are set to be biggies!

Junior Boys Own are Back!

Legendary 90’s house label (and 3 Beat favourites) are back!

It was DJs and producers like Farley and Heller, Andrew Weatherall, Underworld, The Chemical Brothers and X-press 2 who were responsible for the hedonistic blur that was the 90’s. They were the premier artists on Junior Boys Own – a label fondly remembered by all early house lovers.  

 

Nice to see them back, and we look forward to hearing the remixed tracks on good old vinyl over the next few months.

Mysterious Bedrock – Gridlock Remix

There’s a hot new remix of BedrockGridlock that has been causing a fuss with trainspotters, including us at 3 Beat. Its still a bit of a mystery who has remixed this monster, but here’s a clip of Digweed playing it at the weekend @ The Mansion for WMC in Miami. We’ll get on the case to find out who it is by and report back soon!

YouTube Preview Image

**** Hot New Info *** The remixer is Spanish producer Henry Saiz, who has several tracks on Digweeds Transitions 4 CD, and it will be forthcoming on Bedrock records very soon!

Prydz/Pryda – Fabric Test

Does Eric Prydz ever sleep? Or does he just sit there locked in his room making anthems? 3 Beat Records staff are al amazed by how consistant this chap is – he’s had poppy hits under his Eric Prydz name, Pryda is his underground guise and the Cirez D is when he wears his techno hat – yet they are all outstanding… how des he do it?

Fabric Test is the latest one that we’ve heard, and its huge – check it out when Sasha and Digweed dropped in in Miami
