    Your EDM Interview: Ephwurd Is Eph’ing Sh*t Up With New Label


    Guest

    Ephwurd, the electronic duo consisting of Datsik and Bais Haus, have taken their relationship to the next level by launching their very own label Eph’d Up Records!

    To mark the occasion, these guys are blasting “Phunky Beats” featuring Jvst Say Yes loudly and proudly and rightfully so — it’s a song that reminds us exactly how fun dance music can and should be. This is the first of many releases coming soon via Ephwurd’s imprint. Now that the duo is back in the studio, they plan to heat up fall and winter months by dropping new fire on us every few weeks!

    Coming off an absolutely insane run of festival shows this summer, Troy and Basie are putting focus into bringing fans original music, more efficiently than ever before. And because Eph’d Up Records is all about Ephwurd, fans will get to hear what they want, when they want it!

    Here’s what to expect from Ephwurd and Eph’d Up Records!

    As artists who enjoy a broad range of music going from the most hype tunes to the most chill, we wanted to be able to freely give music to our fans without the time constraints of a label. Sometimes we finish a song and it won’t be months until you, the fans, get to hear what we have been working on and its such a huge bummer. Eph’d Up Records gives us the freedom to give you folks music when we want and when you deserve it, because life is happening now and it’s not set on some schedule. With that said, we are launching the label with a tune of ours that we’ve been dropping for well over a year now and it always goes off! Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Phunky Beats.

    Ephwurd / Eph’d Up Records mission statement?

    Have fun, listen to good music, live life! And of course…. Eph $hit UP!

    How did the launch of Eph’d Up Records come to be?

    We’ve always toyed around with the idea of starting a label. We just want a hub for all the music we love and a place for our fans to come vs having to go search elsewhere to find tunes that we think are dope.

    What kinds of artists/genres are you hoping to represent?

    The sound will determine itself in time. Its pretty much anything that we would want to play in our sets. Recently we have been into a lot of newer artists. Been big fans of Michael White and Oneeva lately, you should def check em out. The Michael white bass house stuff is top notch and Oneeva just has this unique sound to them thats super catchy. Time will tell though, we like a lot of different stuff and don’t really want to get painted in any corner.

    “Phunky Beats” (ft. Jvst Say Yes) is incredibly fun — just like all of your productions! How does the release of this one make you guys feel?!

    We’ve been playing this song for about a year now and it always goes off. It just has the spirit of fun built into it and we love it that way. It always reminds us of all the dope times we’ve had on tour and just the craziness that this life entails.

    What’s the best part about working together on the Ephwurd project?!

    Bais: Its great because we have been best buds for a while now and getting to just hang and do our thing is a blessing. We each bring our own vibe to the table and we keep the ego out of it when making tunes. If one of us doesn’t like something that the other writes its never a big deal. Its just like “Hey Eph it, lets move on to the next thing”. We like to keep it fun and I think thats what has helped us get to where we’ve gotten. If its not fun, then why even do it?

    Troy: Yeah, what Basie said! It’s super fun being able to play shows and travel with a homie, not to mention also smashing bomb sushi everywhere we go. Life’s all about adventure and having a good time and right now with Ephwurd we got a healthy dose of both.

      It took a while, but Headhunterz finally has 'a new place where the magic happens'. His studio is actually finished and he is proud to show his social media. He even calls it a dream that has become reality. And we can imagine that, because mister Heady is pretty much planning in the brand new Music From Within Studio.
      Right from the moment Headhunterz returned to hardstyle, the Veenendaler threw the door of his old studio behind him. There had to be a new one, in which he could raise Hard With Style to a higher level besides his own productions. This place is now finally realized after a months-long renovation. Headhunterz explained a bit of the veil here, but one of the companies that actually built the studio shows much more. According to the website of one of the builders, the company has "installed an extension in January that allows podcast recordings with multiple participants". View the footage from Headhunterz 'studio here, here, here and here.
      The new Headhunterz studio is finally ready
      Now that the new musical breeding ground is finished, we can secretly look forward to new enjoyment for Headhunterz's ear. In addition to the new mini-album, which will be released this year, he said earlier that he wants to bring his Hard With Style podcast to a 2.0 version. The studio would offer a solution. The last broadcast of HWS was thus even suspended to 2 February. Headhunterz apologized for this, but said that the delay for a good cause is: "It will all make sense very soon."

      The post Dit is de nieuwe studio van Headhunterz is visible on Hard News.
