    Tresor Records to reissue entire Scopex back catalog in honor of 300th release


    OzClubbers

    Tresor, the label run alongside the legendary Berlin techno club, has announced it’ll be reissuing the entire back catalog of the cultish 90s electro label Scopex in honor of its 300th release.

    While Scopex itself remains a mystique — with only three 12 inches between 1998 and 2000 — its producers Pollon and Simulant, in turn, emulated some of the rarest and most expensive electro records to date.

    As the original copies of the records have also grown increasingly expensive and hard to come by, Tresor deemed it befitting to remaster all of Scopex’s tracks from 1998-2000 for an exclusive vinyl re-release.

    All 14 original tracks have been remastered from the original DAT tapes, including a previously unreleased track recorded during the 2000 sessions — the “Optimal Flow” by Simulant.

    Tresor.300 releases Nov. 24, exclusively on vinyl.

    Tracklist:

    Record 1: Simulant – Simm City
    A1 New Machines
    A2 Musical Box
    B1 Wav. Form
    B2 Wav. Form (Mix)
    B3 Untitled (Locked Groove)

    Record 2: Simulant – Out Of Ether
    A1 Knife Edge
    A2 Spectre
    B1 Access Future Audio
    B2 Access Future Audio (Mix)

    Record 3: Pollon – Electratech
    A1 Lost Souls
    A2 Lonely Planet
    B1 Intro
    B2 Lost Souls (Mix)
    B3 Xtro

    Record 4: Simulant – Optimal Flow
    A. Optimal Flow

      Named Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World, a favourite with BBC Radio 1 tastemakers Pete Tong, Danny Howard and MistaJam racking up over 50 plays on the station, as well the official song of Gay Pride 2018, Too Many Zooz & KDA’s Warriors is an empowerment anthem that’s branched out from the clubs into the public consciousness. Now, Grammy award winner Jess Glynne adds fresh vocals to the record on So Real (Warriors).
       
      So Real (Warriors) is the perfect crossover and looks to be the latest success story from Ministry of Sound, renowned for their ability to match the hottest dance music producers with the world’s biggest pop stars. Here, Jess Glynne’s vibrant vocals are matched effortlessly with the energetic Too Many Zooz vs KDA instrumental version, creating a sure-fire pop-dance hit that’s built on a brass house backbone.
       
      New York three-piece Too Many Zooz are no strangers to working with the most powerful women in music, being seen by Beyoncé, who drafted them in to collaborate on her Lemonade album thanks to their viral busking videos. Taking their “brass house” sound from the subway to the world, they also caught the ear of London-based record producer KDA who reworked their track Warriors.
       
      KDA has a history of crafting club records that go on to be pop hits. His previous dance anthem Turn The Music Louder (Rumble) with Tinie Tempah & Katy became a Platinum certified UK #1 single. Seeing an opportunity to blend Too Many Zooz’s incredible energy with his unique take on dance music, KDA’s version of Warriors was born and now looks to follow in the footsteps of his previous crossover success.
       
      Jess Glynne’s involvement simply underlines the power of this collaborative record. An artist who’s not afraid to be herself, and in doing so has achieved 7 UK #1 singles - more than any other British woman - Jess Glynne has her pick of projects. On So Real (Warriors) she draws on her previous pop-dance hits to create an uplifting record that’s set to bring people together as it conquers the charts.
       
      Too Many Zooz vs KDA feat Jess Glynne - So Real (Warriors) is out now.

      Continuing our artist of the week series, we would like to introduce you to Frisson Records' artist Lifestream
       
      Artist Name: Lifestream 
      Label: Nil
       
      Tell us about yourself
      Solar-powered house enthusiast passionate about bringing underground and emotive sounds to scene. 

      What genre/styles do you play?
      House/Tech House/Techno 
       
      Your specific genre of music?
      Tech House 
       
      Where are you from?
      Toowoomba 
       
      Where are you now?
      Brisbane 
       

      What got you into the scene/dj’ing/producing?
      I really fell in love with the house/deep house sound when I first started hearing it out in clubs around 2012 and just began clubbing regularly since that time. I remember purchasing a dj controller online and playing around with it in my bedroom several years ago now. Ever sicne that time my interest in DJing began. I eventually downloaded Ableton and did a little bit of producing at home but nothing too serious. Things really began to take form when I entered the YOURSHOT international DJ competition in 2017 and placed as runner up on my stage. Shortly after the competition I had my first club set at one of the biggest clubs in Brisbane “The Met” and supported Bag Raiders amongst other international artists. 

      Who has influenced you musically? 
      After attending the infamous nightclub Revolver in Melbourne it really influenced and changed the direction of my sound. I have had a massive influence from many Melbourne DJ’s including Brian Fantana, Boogs, Spacey Space and Jordan Brando to name a few. 

      What are you currently working on?
      Was very happy to put out my debut single “I Gotta Know” last month which had a fantastic response. I am currently working on several projects which will be seeing the light of day very soon. 

      What can we expect in the future from Lifestream?
      Strive to provide listeners with the best experience possible by creating memorable sets, tunes and moments. 
       
      Who have you enjoyed working with/hated the most?
      I have had the pleasure with working with the guys at Frisson Records/Eden. They put on absolutely fantastic events and I have been able to play at their last 2 label parties in Brisbane which have both blown away my expectations. 
       

       
      What’s your day job?
      I work on the clinical team at headspace (National Youth Mental Health Foundation), primarily doing assessments, screening and case management. I’m also doing some Postgraduate studies which keeps me busy. 

      What do you listen to in your downtime? 
      I listen to such a variety of music in my spare time; a lot of metal, house, triple J amongst others. 

      What do you think of the Brisbane scene?
      I think the Brisbane House and Techno music scene has gone from strength to strength over the past 2 years. Venues like Capulet and events like Syndrome, Eden, Dragonfruit have all blown up in popularity over the past several months which has really shown the appetite for more underground house and techno sounds in the Brisbane music scene and how popular it is becoming. Very excited for the future of the Brisbane house and techno music scene.

      Artist Name: King Friendly
      Label: Independent
       
      Tell us about yourself
       
      I’m on the dance floor as often as I am producing music and DJing, I love everything about electronic music and really want to spread the positivity and inclusiveness that comes with it!
       
      What genre/styles do you play?
       
      Progressive House predominantly but also play a lot of Tech House and House. Anything with a good groove usually gets played in my sets.
       
      What got you into the scene/dj’ing/producing?
       
      Attending Tomorrowland Belgium in 2012. It showed me the power of electronic music and how it can bring people from all over the world closer together. I was already interested in electronic music but this experience made me really want to pursue it.

      Check out Tom's U-Tube channel  Here
        Who has influenced you musically?  
      I really started getting into electronic music through Avicii and Skrillex. Since then a whole bunch of artists like; Axwell, Eric Prydz, Deadmau5, Steve Angello, Camelphat, Kryder and many others have influenced my musical tastes.
       
      What are you currently working on? 

      I’m working on incorporating more live elements to my productions, finishing up my Audio Engineering Degree as well as continuing to make videos to my youtube channel! I have some projects that are nearing completion and they will be up on youtube in the coming months as I get a bit better at video editing haha.
       
      Tell us about your most recent gigs?
       
      The Frisson Records Label Party in Brisbane was fantastic recently! Was great to in Brisbane and my next gig will be at the Beehive event in Sydney!
       
      What can we expect from the future for King Friendly?
       
      I want to continue to develop my production skills and continue to DJ to anyone and everyone! I would love to help show the generosity of the dance music community throughout my career and use it to create a fairer world for all.
       
      What do people say about you?
       
      I really pride myself in getting positive feedback from my DJ sets and try and go the extra step to research any event I play to ensure I have music that suits the venue as well as my set time. Whether it’s a smooth warm up set or high-energy headlining set I always try and play the best set to fit the vibe of the night.
       
      Who have you enjoyed working with/hated the most?
       
      I have been producing recently with OSKA from Sydney and it has been great to work on tracks with someone in the same location as me! As far as hating working with anyone, I haven’t, differences can makes life pretty interesting and if it’s not working out I just get through the project best I can and move on.
       
      What’s your day job?
       
      Corporate Audio Visual Technician but occasionally Barista and Bartend as well.
       
      What do you listen to in your downtime?  
       
      Anything, I love it all. From Classical to hardstyle I often end up in some interesting youtube rabbit holes of music.
       
      What do you think about the Brisbane scene?
       
      I was up for the weekend recently and had an absolute ball! There are still lots of great nights out in Sydney where I’m from but it definitely has a more relaxed feel in other cities. I
      think that is really important for a decent clubbing culture to develop and be sustained.

      Frisson Records is the creation of Mark Pridmore and his Czech Republic friend and label co-founder, Ctirad Koloja. The label is based mostly in Brisbane and currently focused on the styles of house, tech house and progressive.
       
       OzClubbers attended a number of the very successful label parties hosted by Mark recently.  We thought it was time to spread the word on how they are helping local artists get exposure, get their music heard and helping people to enjoy what they do.
      The first half of 2018 has seen the parties showcase exciting new talent, well established DJ’s and also friends of the label. The events have been all about the music and if you like supporting local talent and get into house and progressive then we strongly encourage you to check out their next event! Details Here.
      So far events have seen performances by CAIN, Batchelo, TAGLO, Nafta, King Friendly, Avaxxa, Lifestream and MOTION.  For ALL THE VIBES, take a listen to CAIN and Lifestream going B2B at one of the parties Here

      About Frisson
      With their industry experience already spanning several years, Mark and Ctirad have been involved with everything from performing and promoting to music journalism and artist management. It was their mutual love of electronic music and a desire to get further involved that made them decide to launch the label.   Young up and coming artist CAIN (Mark’s son) was also some of the reason behind the initial beginnings of Frisson. Cain and his friends were producing music and would struggle at times to find a label or a good outlet to promote and release their music. Initially Frisson was able to help them, but it didn’t stop there. Today they continue to assist new up and coming artists and create opportunities for those that are truly committed and passionate about their music.

      Queensland’s Bonka are a dynamic duo made up of Lachlan and Connor, two flamingly excited DJ/Producers who have been known to tear down walls in clubs, upon the delivery of their slick main room and mash-up mixes on the frequent.  Notably one of Australia’s most sought-after lords of mash-up, Bonka has it nailed with paragons like: The Chainsmokers, Timmy Trumpet, Deorro, Tujamo, Tommy Trash, TJR and more sprinkling their sets with a well infused Bonka lead, whilst also owning their explosive live shows across the country.
