SRNDR Records’ inaugural release drops on 23 May!

The last couple of years have been, for lack of a better word, productive on the production front. In that time, I've produced over twenty tracks (including different mixes of the same track). I've seen a huge improvement in my work flow, and what used to take me weeks or even months I can now execute in a matter of days, and that has really helped push the output. 

In the last nine months, out of the songs that I sent to labels, I've been lucky enough to have more than a few signed. Five have been released, with two more due out in the coming weeks. In all, I’ve had the privilege of working with labels from as far as the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany and Belarus. They've been absolutely wonderful to work with, and I can't thank them enough for their support and faith in my work. But the rest of the tracks, I've held on to, with a view to eventually releasing them on my own imprint. 

And now that time has come. 

I've been conceptualising SRNDR Records for a few months now, as the record label arm of Surrender HQ. I wanted to create a label that pushed the kind of music that inspired me when I started getting into dance music, as a young man who found solace in the anonymity of the dance floor and in music that moved the mind, body and soul, regardless of (sub)genre. SRNDR Records is about that kind of music - music that is built on the structure and aesthetics of early electronic dance music before it became EDM - the old but original school. It’s dance music that needs to be lovingly and skilfully mixed into one another. But in the current context, a relic in the age of instant gratification and hyper-sheen. 

So come 23rd May, the label takes a tangible form with its first proper release, a song that I’ve been keeping close to my heart for a couple of months. Until now, anyway. 

This is “Two Birds (Metaphorical Mix)”. Out on SRNDR Records on 23rd May 2019. Enjoy. :) 

ps: If this sounds like something you’d be willing to get behind, I’d love your support by being part of the SRNDR community and/or spreading the love. It would mean a lot.

In the week it's been out, "Undertow" has gone up to number 20 on the Beatport Hype Progressive House chart, which is well beyond my expectations. Can't say enough how grateful I am for all the love and support, and I hope people are digging it on the dancefloors.
