Bleep District – Special Needs EP (LMD035)
Catalogue Number: LMD035 | Release Date: June 2010
The rise of Bleep District in the past two years hasn’t gone unnoticed here at Lost My Dog towers (or should that be kennels) and, finally, long-time friends of the label Matt Rhythm and Matt Powell provide their debut EP for LMD. Giom is another artist who has pricked up the canine’s ears of late and is working closely with Lost My Dog throughout 2010 and beyond – he remixes ‘Don’t Stop Now’ to complement Bleep District’s 3 original tracks. The emphasis here is purely on fun, funk-riddled deep house.
Hailing from Nottingham, via Matlock, Bleep District is the duo of Matt Rhythm (of Rhythm Plate) and Matt Powell. As Bleep District they have achieved success on labels including Winding Road, Ornate and Replay. Their current release ‘Science & Soul’ for San Francisco’s Amenti Music is causing some serious damage in both its original form and thanks to a LawnChair Generals remix. Matt Rhythm has been a close friend of us here at Lost My Dog for several years and was first involved with the label when Rhythm Plate provided a remix way back on LMD006. His Rhythm Plate partner-in-crime Ant Plate (aka YSE) has also released several tracks and remixes with LMD.
The original mix of ‘Don’t Stop Now’ was included on Lost My Dog’s recent Miami Sampler picking up praise, plays and chart support from Inland Knights, Mark Farina, Miguel Migs, LawnChair Generals and many more.
Giom, originally from Niort in France, is another of the most exciting artists in the deep house genre right now. He has collaborated with, and remixed, artists including Fred Everything, JT Donaldson and Swirl People, as well as releasing his original music for Amenti, Ornate and DJ Heather’s Blackcherry. For Lost My Dog in 2010 Giom has already remixed Bang Bang’s ‘Broken’ to rave reviews and will release his first full EP for the label later in the summer.
