Redco is a DJ and Producer from Uzhhorod (Ukraine) and an uprising player in the Ukrainian national major league of Drum & Bass. He has been releasing tunes since 2003, his music has been successful on radio stations and on TV, and he has played events all over the country and in surrounding countries, visiting cities like Moscow and Sankt Petersburg, performing on stage with many of the international heavyweights. After having released several albums and getting tunes signed to labels such as DSCI4, Contaminated and Trust In Music, Redco puts out his digital “Soulfunk” LP on Tilt-Recordings / T-Files. It contains a selection of 9 tunes, mostly dancefloor orientated. They cover different sounds and sub-styles ranging from oldschool Neurofunk to more contemporary forms of technoid Drum & Bass.

As the number and diversity of Drum & Bass producers is still growing, a lot of interesting music has been produced lately. Therefore, T-Files and Kaiza’s T3K imprint are having a busy time with many digital releases over the past months: one every week, mostly alternating between the two labels (T-FREE has not really slowed down either). And there is not going to be a summer pause…
Last week there was no release only due to a computer change in the main headquarter skyscraper of the Tilt-Recordings Empire (and the usual hick-ups coming with new computers). But as that problem is halfway solved, the labels’ system is running again.

The next thing is a digital Album by the Ukrainian DJ and producer Redco, coming on T-Files very soon. It is entitled “Soulfunk LP” and packed with Neurofunk dancefloor material.

Soon after that, the Nr.1 artist on Tilt-Recording, Budoka (who has recently built himself a new studio and is crafting beats again), will finally make his long overdue T-Files debut.

Furthermore, tunes by guest artists like Walder, Eiton, Paperclip, Try and Error, Proton Kid, Forbidden Socity, Markoman and others are signed and waiting for their release, as well as more tunes by Isotop, Kaiza and Shots (including the Isotop remix of Spinor’s “Moloch”).

The issue of vinyl records brings bad news AND good news: the release of the next one, TILT011, will most probably not happen before 2010 due to the usual lack of funds… But to make it up for only 1 vinyl release on Tilt-Recordings in 2009, a remix by the mighty Misanthrop of Neosignal is planned.

A bunch of tunes by Kaiza and Isotop have been signed to a number of other labels. Their names must remain untold though because it is up to them to announce the signings themselves at the right time of their choice :)
For starters, early July saw the release of these two tunes on Flight Digital FLTDIG021:
Budoka – “Pleasure Ride” (Isotop + Kaiza RMX)
Bassrk – “Head On The Ground” (Isotop + Kaiza RMX)
…and of these two on Anxiety Disorder ADRALB001 Dead Source LP:
Cyclone – “Acetylene” (Kaiza Remix)
Isotop + Kaiza Feat. Shots – “Hybrid”
More will follow.

…Apart from music itself, there are also some minor points of organisation which MIGHT be interesting if you follow Tilt-Recordings and the affiliated digital labels closely:

- Blog.
There is now a blog which gives an overview on all releases from these labels around the Trio-Music crew and other related stuff (podcasts, mixes, events etc.):

Of course the, and websites are still online, get updated regularly and function as proper archives and detailed info sources. The blog is “just” a blog for keeping updated on the boldest news from this camp.

- Server errors.
Due to heavy traffic, the domain (on which all of the labels’ clips and textfiles are hosted) encounters problems sometimes: when more than 100 people try to access it at the same moment, the server produces a 503 error to the 101th person (and above). But it does not mean the server is actually broken.
For example, if you try to download a T-FREE tune and get a 503 error, do not be alarmed. Simply try again. In most cases, it works fine just a few seconds later.
We will probably have to move to a different provider, but this could take quite a while. Anyway there are clips in the shops as well, the Tilt-Recordings and T-FREE homepages still works fine and for all the T-FREE tunes there are mirrors on the label website. Sorry for the inconviniency!

- Tilt-Recordings / T-Files shops.
The Dancerecords shop appears to have gone under (of course without paying any of the labels who had tunes there… proffessional rip-off business), so at the moment the only shops for buying Tilt & T-Files tunes digitally are ithinkmusic, Digital-Tunes, Juno, Beatsdigital and (usually with some weeks delay) Beatport.
Chemical-Records and Trackitdown may eventually follow in the future, but for now the tunes are only available here:

- T3K shops.
The tunes on T3K (the digital-only label of Kaiza) were available via the Tilt / T-Files profiles in the digital stores until the end of June. This has now changed, T3K has its own shop profiles now:

…the releases up to June are also on

That’s all the more or less important stuff for now.
Watch or for the next releases etc.


A remix by Kaiza and another Isotop/Kaiza/Shots collabo tune have been released via the netlabel Anxiety Disorder:

Valevo – “Atmos” (Bonus Remix)

This release is the first EP on T3K (T3K-EXT003). It features three tracks by russian newcomer SFS: “Style 90″, “Smell Of Criminal” and “Blockada”. His tunes appeared on labels like Intransigent (INTREC013), Mind Outside (MOS014) and Naturality Sound System (NSS027). Some of his works will be released on Metafiziq, Future 13 and Bully Recordings. So, after a release on T-FREE (“Techno B”) the world now gets more of his style via T3K Recordings.

SFS – “Style 90″ –> 128 kbps mp3 clip
SFS – “Smell Of Criminal” –> 128 kbps mp3 clip
SFS – “Blockada” –> 128 kbps mp3 clip

Bassrk is a DJ and producer from Hamburg, Germany. He has been around in the local scene since 2002,
deejaying and organizing events in/around Hamburg. For some years he has been focussing on production and released some of his tunes on Destination Digital, Mindtech Recordings and the netlabel Anxiety Disorder. He did some collaborations with artists like Chook and underwent hardship in the studio to improve his production skills. Now, he makes his T-FREE debut with the dub version of “Mephisto”, a tune that will probably never come out in its original version because of a long, distinctive vocal by Klaus Kinski the copyright of which could never be cleared…
