Akuratyde’s Modern Conveniences imprint gathers steam with a second release, and this time it’s Tellus at the controls for a solo artist selection. Liberation combines the Australian producer’s gift for atmospheric sounds with a high energy drum pattern and more than enough bass to work a room. Soft strings, punchy percussion and warm sub vibrations…what more could you ask for? Look for this coming Sep 25th at digital stores.
We’ve been watching Tellus for a while and we’re big fans of the projects he’s involved in, whether as a solo artist, co-founder of the Locked Concept imprint or one part of the recent 3VS project alongside Akuratyde and Monika. Naturally then we were really pleased when he agreed to record us a Dojo guest mix!
The mix is packed full of deepness new and old, taking in Tellus’s own work alongside beats from Stray, Moresounds, DJrum, Sorse and lots more, plus some unreleased dubs. It’s a lush musical journey through many styles of 170, and a thoroughly enjoyable ride.
3VS may not be a name you’ve heard of yet, but you’ll certainly know the three producers behind it; Monika, Akuratyde and Tellus have each already more than made their mark on the scene under their solo releases. To celebrate the release of their debut EP for None60, we tracked them down and asked for their Top 5 influences…and we even allowed them six so they get two each!
Tellus is in our premiere spotlight today with a cut taken from his forthcoming Landscapes EP for Locked Concept. Shimmering Valley is rich in texture and atmosphere, with reverb-laden percussion and cinematic synth-work taking centre stage; definitely one for the armchair rather than the dancefloor. Watch out for the EP coming December 14th…
