Sonic Union, the man behind Lowbit Records teams up with his longtime writing partner Bastards of Funk to deliver two new original tracks in 'Shadow Elements' EP. Starting off with 'Elements', a track that came together over an intense 4 day writing session in London a few months ago, hits the more minimal side of Sonic Union & Bastards of Funks productions with its reverb-heavy stabs, steppy bassline and chunky drums. 'Shadow' takes it down a notch with its deep house vibe with long drawn out chords, vocal stabs, ethereal strings and stripped back drums. A slightly different side from these two producers and we hope you enjoy the music!
With support from Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Guy J, Cid Inc, Eelke Kleijn, Lonya and many more make sure you don’t miss this fantastic release!

After long deliberations and listening to every entry multiple times, the winners of the 10 year Lowbit Records anniversary together with MetaPop and Native Instruments have been announced. Head on over to the competition page for the results and check out all the contributions!
Eleven Sins is a newcomer to the scene but have already started to make waves with his releases on SoundTeller and MNL. We got the demo for this EP through Lowbit artist Forniva and instantly took to the old-school progressive house vibe we got from it. Starting the three tracker EP is 'Test Flight' a high energy track with rolling bassline, noise lead and classic vocal break. 'Peace Of Mind' continues the energy with its undulating bassline, classic chord stabs and vocal hooks. Wrapping up the release is 'Fly', the deeper of the three tracks with its more atmospheric feel.
Great stuff from this new artist and we are sure to hear more from Eleven Sins in the future!

Forniva's last EP on Lowbit, 'Exception to the rule' was back in May 2017 and garnered a lot of attention. He is now back on Lowbit with 'Andalusia' and boy is this a big one! Deep, rolling grooves, hypnotic stabs and oriental inspired melodies. The energy bursting out from the speakers when listening to this are mesmerising! As on 'Exception to the rule' Forniva has teamed up with Alex Nemec again and delivers a more tech inspired vibe in 'Interference'. Slightly more upbeat then 'Andalusia', this track is shock full of energy, groovy and "umpf"!

On our quest to discover new artists and usher them into the spotlight we found Burakcan with his track 'Nevermind', which will be his first release. 'Nevermind' is a deep and hypnotic affair with a stripped back groove and focus on the pads and effects. For the remix we have another relative newcomer Ogun Celik, who delivers a heaver take with the drums and big stabs taking point here. We hope this will lead to great new opportunities for the guys, just as it has for similar artists before.
Here at Lowbit HQ we love to discover new interesting up-and-coming artists and Sonabit falls into that category. What really caught our ear when we heard his demo was the unusual blend of straight up progressive house and The Who:esque rock flavour he had in his tracks.
The first track 'Sleeping over keyboards' in 'Photosynthesis' EP is a full on energetic progressive number with heavy distorted guitars and vocal samples, 'Winter Disorder' on the other hand is a slightly deeper track but shock full of great melodies and a real musical journey.
‘Sleeping over Keyboards’ have already been charted by Nick Warren and been a big track for him in Miami at WMC this year. Other support comes from Cid Inc, Eelke Kleijn, Lonya, Dale Middleton, Sonic Union, Praveen Achary and many many more!
Namatjira's fantastic 'Bete Noire' EP is available today exclusively at Beatport! The EP consists of three classy progressive house cuts starting with the darker 'Whakangā', calming things down a bit with the deeper 'Bête Noire' and rounding it of with the more energetic and hypnotic 'Five O'Clock Shadow'. These three tracks really showcases Namatjira's talent as a producer in both the deeper side of progressive house to the more energetic and uplifting side.
With huge support on this from the likes of John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, Cid Inc, Eelke Kleijn & more!

After over a year since his last release 'Karma', on Lowbit, AudioStorm is now back with a fresh new EP titled 'Analogue Agenda'. The eponymous 'Analogue Agenda' as the title hints, has a warm analogue sound to it with its lush swelling pads, piano stabs and squelchy 303ish arpeggios. The second and final track 'Inner Eye' with its heavy throbbing bassline, tingly leads and oriental influences is like a Sirens song pulling you into a state of trance.
Supported by Hernan Cattaneo (featured on Resident), Nick Warren, Guy J, Tripswitch, Darin Epsilon, Lonya and many many more!

Kicking off 2018 after a very successful 2017 we welcome Filter Bear (Lost & Found, TRAUM Schallplatten) to Lowbit with 'Never In'. 'Never In' follows Filter Bears unique blend of energy and melodies in his productions. With its deep and progressive groove, growling bassline and intricate and lush piano melodies, this is another feather in the hat for Filter Bear.
Filter Bear also delivers a re-work of the track in 'Filter Bear’s Midnight Swim Reimagination', going super deep, creating a real hypnotic laid-back almost drug induced feeling, you just want to close your eyes and enjoy.
Wrapping up the release we have another new encounter on Lowbit with We Need Cracks (Anjunadeep, TRAUM Schallplatten), who take the original to new heights with a more energetic, proper dance floor progressive house track. If the original is for warming up, this remix is for the peak time moments!
Played by Hernan Cattaneo on his Resident show plus support from Guy J, Cid Inc, Praveen Achary, Darin Epsilon, Sonic Union and many many more.

We welcome back Max Cue to Lowbit, this time in a collaboration with occasional writing partner William Forest. Their EP 'The Present Moment' blends the deep and melancholic with a twist of energy. Both tracks in the EP are full to the brim with intricate melodies yet it doesn't feel crowded in any way. A stunning EP that is truly a treat for the ears!

For over 8 years now Lowbit Records have represented the underground like no other and with Sonic Union, a World-renowned DJ at the helm, their place in the halls of fame is assured. Started in 2008 as a conduit for established artists and up-and-comers alike, Lowbit fast became a beacon for quality. And with support from all of the main movers and shakers, Lowbit’s roster now reads like a who’s who of dance music.
From scene stalwarts such as Chris Cargo and Derek Howell to new artists like Kasper Koman, it’s Sonic Union’s attention to detail in the A&R process that has assured the label’s continued success, and for their milestone 200th release, the main man has put his producer hat back on to deliver two slices of blissful House Music - The Return EP.
Starting with the deceptively deep Dragged Behind, Sonic Union marries skippy hats with rhodesy keys, nuanced synths and a devilish bass for a classy early hours soiree, while on the flip side, Rakt keeps the pressure up with a hip-shaking groover incorporating some classic Deep House motifs and a repeated male vocal hook.
