artist 7th Star
date March 23
genre Progressive / Techno
track Beyond / The Fall

7th Star is an Italian duo consisting of Nihil Young and Valentina Black. They have been searching for their sound in their relatively new collaboration and with this EP they seem to have nailed it spot on!

First up on this breakthrough EP is ‘Beyond’ which features a huge bass line accompanied by a solid kick and slick groove. This distinctive track is heightened with its soft and warm synths, which set a melancholic atmosphere together with the vocoded vocals. The screeching and somewhat de-tuned lead melody adds a penetrating emotion to the song. Yet, what makes this track so unique and powerful is the way it manages to find balance between the epic, hypnotizing sound of early millennium progressive and post-punk electronic pop music. The track is not limited to one setting as its potential for airplay in no way affects its potential to rock an underground dance floor. These illustrious elements make this a perfect crossover tune.

On the flipside ‘The Fall’ stands in a category of its own, as it doesn’t fall into any of the clichés of electronic music. The ambiance is euphoric and mystical as if it were set in an enchanted forest with those blue Disney lovebirds dancing happily around. This is one to set the mood and fits perfectly into a sunny and warm setting. Get ready for summer because this is a hit that is perfect for good weather and good vibes.

This will be available at your local mp3 shop from March 23rd.

GEM 040 / Egbert – Shake EP

artist Egbert
date January 16th 2015
genre Techno
track Shake / Dik Geluid / Korrelig

After just over a year of strictly remixes, Egbert returns with his first EP after his critically acclaimed album ‘Warm’. ‘Shake’ is a dancefloor EP with three unforgivingly powerful originals!

2014 Was a year with many highs for Egbert. With a whopping 4 gigs at Awakenings including both days of the festival, rocking the Cave at Timewarp NL before Sven Väth, Electric Brixton in London, Flex Club Vienna, Sziget Festival and loads more amazing gigs with thousands of people going mental to his live act.

For 2015 there are a string of strong EP’s lined up kicking off with ‘Shake’ on Gem Records. As Egbert spends most of his time playing live sets with 100% Egbert tracks around the globe, he knows exactly which ones pack the most punch. Label boss Secret Cinema who plays epic sets together with Egbert regularly, sat down and selected three of those tracks for this EP.

The record kicks off with ‘Dik Geluid’ which translates into ‘phat sound’. A stripped down repetitive techno bomb with a hard kick and a throbbing bass effect as its main elements accompanied by spacey noises and lo-fi vocal samples that funk and echo over the top. Next up is ‘Shake’ which revolves around a bassline on every 16th note triplet that swings over the beat in a way that gives the track loads of energy and danceability. Filters are opened and decays lengthened until the bassline growls and roars with energy building up and up. Finally there is ‘Korrelig’ which is probably one of the darkest tracks from Egbert’s sets. With scary horror movie vocals, huge delays, and a main noise that sounds evil to its core this is one bad-ass cut…

GEM 039 / Various – INTRODUCING#01

artist Various
date 15 December 2014
genre Deep House / Tech House / Techno

On INTRODUCING#01 Gem compiled 7 tracks by 8 artists they would like to introduce:
Moodmachine & Anri – Lovebirds
The compilation kicks off with the beautiful laidback downtempo groove of ‘Lovebirds’. It was the chords on this bad boy that drew us in like a euphoric breeze blowing over Moodmachine’s signature warm, funky and phat bass line. Warmth and love all the way!

Anri started off as a purebreed DJ. It was Gem’s own Steve Ward who signed her to his Chameleon Agency and inspired her to get into music production. Earlier this year her first EP was released. Now she follows up with a release on Gem!

Moodmachine were formed in 2009 and since became a well-respected live act touring Australia and Europe regularly. So far they have been keeping most of their extensive live repertoire to themselves. Only a handful of tracks have been released up until now. This year releases are lined up with Vapour, Open and of course Gem Records.

Soundbalance – Superb
‘Superb’ starts off with a tense, dark atmosphere created by a growling sawtooth that filters in and out over a funky drum groove and deep bass line. But once the melody is introduced layer by layer the track gets a much warmer feel. Climaxes are created by filtering the huge synth chord in and out with some nice effects in the background. Energetic, warm, funky!

Soundbalance are a live act and DJ duo known for their remixes, most of which are released on their own Comport record label. ‘Superb’ will be the debut original track from the Haarlem (NL) based act!
Mohn – Come Out And Play
Mohn’s adition to the compilation is simple yet effective. A funky groove is accompanied by a deep bass line. The melody is layered on top of the b-line and some heavily sidechained soft synth pads play about in the background. There are a number of breaks where the melody is fed through a high pass filter until the bass line returns deep and heavy!

Mohn’s first ever track won him a release on Mauro Picotto’s Alchemy in 2012 through a contest. After such a great start he began releasing steadily including a second Alchemy release and a Sudbeat release.

Arno Motz – Triumph
Triumph has an electro-ish beat and a short stabby bassline. The lead is an ever so electronic sounding synth contrasted by a brass section. The track has a poppy electro sound to it without crossing over in to cheesy territory.

Arno Motz is a producer of the musically trained variety. He played various instruments in a number of bands until he discovered Ableton and got hooked. The music he produces has a high level of musicality and originality. We have high hopes for this young lad and an EP planned on Gem in 2015!

Noraj Cue – Synthetic Brainwaves
With sounds bubbling up all over the place, weird delays, reverbs and strange vocals… This is one trippy track! Synthetic Brainwaves indeed. This is one of those pumping hypnotic joints that might make you wonder if you’re hearing things right on a dance floor.

Noraj Cue is a producer in heart and soul. He started making music on a computer back in ’94 when he was thirteen. Making music was a way for him to express his feelings without the intention of ever releasing it. Today he is a productive producer who prefers spending time in his studio over anything else. The result is an impressive discography with a steady stream of releases on Manual Music, Tronic and Connaisseur to drop some names.

Antonio Valente – Space Jump
Antonio Valente drops an oldschool bomb! The sound is reminiscent of early 00’s techno but with better production quality and at least 15 bpm slower. The recipe is simple and sweet: Pumping kick, energetic repetitive baseline and ditto melody, swap the hihats for rides every now and then and filter the melody in and out.

Valente likes to use vintage techno as an inspiration to make tracks that work on dance floors today. He has been churning out tunes since 2009 including an EP on Sino. Gem label boss Secret Cinema has been smashing Antonio Valente tracks in his sets recently.

Acensor – The 14th Baktun
We end INTRODUCING#01 with an anthem. The 14th Baktun opens with just a kick, shaker and the growling bass line. As the track builds the lead synth is slowly introduced building up to an epic lighters in the air, blinders flashing, CO2 cannon pumping, firework display break. And then the track continues as before.

Since 2008 Acensor have been performing regularly at U603011 and have a residency at the .raw events alongside Alan Fitzpatrick, Len Faki and Ben Klock. Their releases have had international success, but they could still use an introduction!

Snatch this package up from December 15th at your local mp3 shop!

GEm 038 / Enrico Sangiuliano – Sparrows In My Glass EP

artist Enrico Sangiuliano / remixes by Frankyeffe and Heartik
date Beatport
genre Techno
track Sparrows in My Glass / Outfought

Enrico Sangiuliano returns to Gem Records after his brilliant Groove Mission EP in December 2013. He since joined the Gem Bookings roster and they welcome him for a second EP on the label. This time his two originals are accompanied by remixes from Frankyeffe and Heartik.
Enrico Sangiuliano has been on the Italian scene since 2003 working his way up through the ranks performing at Italy’s largest stages and hosting his own club night ‘TECH’. In recent years he has started putting his releases out into the international techno scene with releases on Gem, Alchemy, Octopus and Truesoul to name a few and is becoming an international DJ.

As expected Sangiuliano delivers two impeccably produced originals. Sparrows In My Glass is one funky motherf*cker of a track. Real percussion samples are slotted cleverly in with all the electronic noises bleeps and drums of this modern techno bomb. Dark in a way the gives you a one of those menacing grins. Outfought has a similar sound with the same clever use of stereo imaging on the drum and synth sounds which are placed in a small room behind your head, contrasted by huge reverbs on other noises adding a trippy vibe to the track. The taunting vocals fit in perfectly with the menacing vibe of the track.

Heartik turns in an edgier sounding remix to his usual sound. He takes the vocs from Sparrows In My Glass and cuts them up nicely to bounce over the top of this highly effective groover. Frankyeffe takes it to a dubbyer level making the track darker, deeper and grimier.

Out November 17th.

GEM 037 / Absent ft. Diego Hostettler – A Sign Of Awareness EP

artist Absent ft. Diego Hostettler
date October 13th 2014
genre Techno
track Lilith / On The Move / Transmogrified

Absent and Diego Hostettler team up for their second EP together after dropping their amazing ‘She’s Not Worth It’ on Alexander Kowalski’s Damage Music. The follow-up on Gem Records has three originals packed with melody, soul and euphoria!

Diego Hostettler is an established name with over fifty 12”s and 8 albums on labels such as Kanzleramt, Tronic, Damage Music and of course his ‘Hope EP’ on Gem Records. He is known for his warm and emotional yet energetic techno sound which has audibly inspired friend and collaborator Yann van Uffelen AKA Absent. The latter has started building a profile as a producer in recent years and is steadily becoming a musical force to be reckoned with.

All three cuts have a nostalgic oldschool Detroit feeling to them and never lose momentum from the first bar to the last. The EP kicks off with ‘Lilith’ which is introduced with just a kick and a throbbing bassline. Hats are filtered in, the kick gets some extra umpf, and the melody is slowly introduced. During the break the track is built up fully with a delicate melody and a complex arpeggiator. This track will undoubtedly create a euphoric dancefloor atmosphere with loads of energy.

Next up is the Diego collab ‘On The Move’ with its fast percussion and dreamy echo’s. The structure is similar to the previous track as all elements are introduced slowly building up to the break after which the track explodes with energy, beautiful melodies and arpeggiators bouncing over the top of an energetic groove. But with music like this, more IS more.

Finally there is ‘Transmogrified’ which in case you are wondering means: “Transform in a surprising or magical manner” according to the dictionary. This track definitely has a mystical beauty to it. It doesn’t have the bouncing happiness of the other two songs on this EP. Instead there is a soft and sweet melody with a melancholy beauty to it. But contrasting the soft and subtle melody is a ridiculously phat kick drum and a heavy bassline to go with it. Different but in a very good way.

This quality piece of oldschool techno will be available from October 13th. So go on. You know you secretly love that oldschool stuff. Treat yourself to a couple of nice warm tracks. You know you want to…We wont tell…

GEM 036 / Confute – On The Hour EP

artist Confute
date September 15th 2014
genre Techno
track On The Hour / Thumpers

As the weather turns on this side of the globe and the festival season starts coming to an end, Gem Records return with some full-on techno with a twist. Confute is a new name to the scene but his music reveals the skill of an experienced producer. The EP goes from epic and deep with ‘On the hour’ to wild and fierce with ‘Thumpers’.
On the hour is an extremely atmospheric track that seems to tell an epic story. It builds up energy and tension with a deep thumping kick and a dark bass line over the top. Strange and outlandish percussion is added together with a delicate shaker. The lead melody is slowly introduced as though from a great distance. The whole track conjures up images of large armies marching down valleys and the main melody sounds like the horn blowers announcing their arrival. Once all the sounds have been filtered in a horn screeches loudly and everything stops. As though the track has ended a huge reverb is allowed to fade almost completely away into silence. But just as you assume the track is over, a second horn screeches and the kick returns. Did we say epic yet?

Thumpers is a more familiar concept; full on, in your face, banging techno. The way it is done though is not so familiar. Confute likes to play around with the use of big reverbs and rhythmic delays. His choice of drum sounds and his way of creating atmosphere with his music is almost alien. The kick is huge and big and seems to have an extra layer of sub so deep it will make your teeth rattle. The percussion all repeats itself through a delay that keeps it driving and repeating. The main synth sounds like a supersonic motorbike revving up and up past the limits of any conventional engine and speeding through a large tunnel. Again the track conjures up images in your mind that are definitely worth exploring.

Make sure not to dismiss this as a big techno EP that should be confined to dance floors. It definitely deserves a proper listen on good headphones with your eyes closed.

This Gem will be available from September 8th.

GEM 035 / Secret Cinema & Max D-Loved – Martina

artist Secret Cinema & Max D-Loved
date August 11th 2014
genre Techno / Tech house / Deep house
track Martina, remixes by Jamie Stevens, Frank Mueller (AKA Beroshima), Subjects

Secret Cinema and Max D-Loved team up for their second release together. Both producers are known for their original and unique yet effective tracks. Their first collaboration ‘Wow Cat’ came down like a bomb on Sian’s Octopus Recordings. Now they follow up with a powerful warm melodic festival anthem called ‘Martina’ on Gem Records. Jamie Stevens, Frank Mueller AKA Beroshima and Subjects deliver remixes that cover the spectrum from laid back to full on techno.

All the elements of the original by the Dutch / Italian duo sound gentle and soft on their own. But put together they make for an energetic tune. The rolling bassline seems to buzz around your head in a three dimensional space leaving lots of room for the big and powerful kick drum. Time-stretched vocals echo mysteriously in the background creating a surreal atmosphere. The lead keys sound warm and playful whilst the percussion and hats give the track its momentum and energy. This is just one of those blissful soundtracks for a beautiful day…

Jamie Stevens is known for his amazing melodic techno tracks and his remix of Martina is another perfect example. Our Ozzie mate takes a more hypnotic and driving approach to the track. Letting it build up slowly into a driving dance floor track with an amazing thumping bassline. Subjects, consisting of Max D-Loved and Jeffry Hide, take a similar approach but turn it into full on 3 AM mayhem with a bad-ass kick drum!

Finally, Frank Mueller the man also known as Beroshima takes the track to a deeper level. Utilising almost all of the elements from the original but reconstructing them as a much more laid back almost housey track. Seriously mellow!

    GEM 031 / Revolt – InBetweens EP

  • artist Revolt
    date Februari 10th 2014
    genre Techno
    track 1 Inbetweens 2 Editions 3 Reverse
  • Gem Records starts 2014 with some proper techno from spaced out producer and sound designer Revolt.

    Arno Asmus has been around since the mid 90’s releasing under several names, Revolt being the best known. He has releases under his belt on labels such as Bedrock, Addictive, and Global Underground to name a few. Today he produces a broad spectrum of electronic music without holding back. From ambient to full on techno and from club music to sound design in video but always with a Revolt flavor to it.

    The Inbetweens EP is a perfect example of his versatility. The ep kicks off with ‘Inbetweens’. A balance between a solid kick, percussion, industrial noises and synth sounds this is a true pumping warehouse techno track.

    Up next is ‘Edition’ which has yet another thumping groove to enjoy which intertwines perfectly with the percussion. This time with vocals and gentle shakers in the background. ‘Reverse’ seems to speak to a different part of the brain. Utilizing a lighter up-tempo groove it immediately catches the ear. Spacy industrial scapes add a lot of atmosphere to the track working their way up to a climax. Watch out you don’t loose your sense of time and space while listening to this bad boy!

    Revolt’s Inbetweens EP will be avalable from Februari 10th 2014 on Beatport or your favorite digital retailer.

    GEMCD 004 / Egbert – Warm (album)

    artist Egert
    date November 4th 2013
    track 1 Fonkel 2 Magic Night 3 Shulgin 4 Hemelpoort 5 Gevoel (interlude) 6 Naar de ruimte en terug 7 Ondergronds 8 Tegno 9 Leven 10 Machtig 11 Trip

    Egbert has been dazzling us with the speed at which he has skyrocketed to being one of the world’s top players in the techno scene. Within a short period of time he has managed to create a rapidly growing fan base who have all been avidly waiting for him to release an album for some time now. This November Egbert will finally be releasing ‘Warm’ on Secret Cinema’s Gem Records.

    With powerful pumping main room techno such as ‘Haasten’ and ‘Straktrekken’ under his belt but also melodic and somewhat minimal sounding techno, Egbert creates a broad spectrum of music within his own signature sound. So which direction did he go on Warm?

    The album takes you on a trip through Egbert’s vision of melodic techno. Well produced and euphoric but without stepping in to known territory. In his own words: ‘One thing I often miss at techno parties is warmth. I would like to bring that back to techno’. While his live sets are usually filled with percussion and rhythm, this album compiles the tracks that bring warmth to his set. We also get a taste of Egbert’s raw side with the powerful pumping grooves and punishing dark basslines on ‘Tegno’ and ‘Shulgin’. There’s even a new flavour added to the versatile producer’s palate with the trippy ambient sounds of ‘Ondergronds’ and ‘Trip’.

    After hearing Egbert’s first EP ‘Stroom’ on Myspace, Jeroen ‘Secret Cinema’ Verheij was quick to snatch up Egbert and take him under his wing. ‘He came walking into my studio with hundreds of brilliant tracks that only needed some polishing up’ says Verheij. After that Egbert released ‘Magie’ which was one of Sven Väth’s favourites for 2009 and made it onto Cocoon’s ‘Sounds of the 10th Season’. Suddenly, Egbert was a new player on the worldwide techno scene. Four years and many huge EPs and remixes later, his album is finally here!

    ‘Warm’ emerges with the delicate, rolling rhythms and pads of opening track ‘Fonkel’ that stretches out across eight minutes of expansive, emotional landscape before the ‘Magic Night’ tightens up the beats before going deeper into the darkness and the previously mentioned ‘Shulgin’ pulses ever further into the night. ‘Hemelpoort’ brings us back towards the light with shimmering chords as does the more driving yet eloquent ‘Leven’ with ‘Machtig’ proving a slow builder that really hits its stride in the middle. Finally the album disappears into the ether with the atmospheric resonance of ‘Trip’, showcasing another string to Egbert comforting, radiant production

    GEM 029 / Egbert – Warm EP

    track 1 Hemelpoort 2 Tegno 3 Shulgin

    Egbert has been dazzling us with the speed at which he has skyrocketed to being one of the world’s top players in the techno scene. Within a short period of time he has managed to create a rapidly growing fan base who have all been avidly waiting for him to release an album for some time now. Come 4th of November, Egbert will finally be releasing ‘Warm’ on Secret Cinema’s Gem Records. The first preview of the album is on this fantastic 3 track EP out October 28th.

    With powerful pumping main room techno such as ‘Haasten’ and ‘Straktrekken’ under his belt but also melodic and somewhat minimal sounding techno, Egbert creates a broad spectrum of music within his own signature sound. So which direction did he go on Warm?

    The album takes you on a trip through Egbert’s vision of melodic techno. Well produced and euphoric but without stepping in to known territory. In his own words: ‘One thing I often miss at techno parties is warmth. I would like to bring that back to techno’.

There’s even a new flavour added to the versatile producer’s palate with the trippy ambient sounds of ‘Ondergronds’ and ‘Trip’.

    This preview EP starts with Hemelpoort with its heavenly, warm, plonky synths that echo their way in and out of sync climaxing in the break only to be stomped back in line by the kick when it returns. A real eyes closed peak time spacer! On the flipside we kick off with Tegno. This is definitely the most powerful of the bunch. The repetitive, dark bass line builds up tension until a drum breakdown gives the green light to go berserk… Finally there’s Shulgin which has been a huge bomb at most of Egbert’s shows for the past year. A tribute to dr. Alexander Shulgin, the track is powerful and pumping with lots of spacey, trippy and creepy stabs and noises.

    GEM 028 / SQL – Surrender EP

    artist SQL, Kassey Voorn
    date August 26th 2013
    genre Techno, tech-house
    track 1 Surrender 2 Reveal (Kassey Voorn Remix) 3 Reveal 4 Collect
    SQL is known for his warm yet energetic productions and live sets throughout the globe. This new EP is an absolutely rock solid four tracker with everything from happy summer warmth to smooth techno.

    First up is Surrender. This could be one of the happiest, sunniest yet powerful tracks you’ll hear this summer! The chords, which open up beautifully in the break, are so optimistic and warm they could be prescribed as an anti-depressant. The groove on the other hand driven by über funky snares, claps and rattling high hats will make you want to take that new found optimism and pretend like Monday doesn’t exist!

    ‘Collect’ is a hypnotic groover with lots of energy and funk. With ever changing and evolving ambient noises in the background and a punishing chord bleep, this track has an almost sinister feel to it. As though you might be punished if you don’t rip up the floor.

    ‘Reveal’ is best used to end a warm summer day on an outside dance floor with your eyes closed. Grooving to the spacey synths and driving percussion. Be sure to have this one handy when the sun sets! Kassey Voorn rocks the EP with a more pumping approach with his remix focussing on a phat kick and bass line but with a melodic breakdown to catch your breath.

    Available on vinyl and digital from August 26th.
    Laurent Garnier – “I loooooove Surrender. Yes, this is right up my street. Thank you!”
    Stephan Bodzin – “Wonderful summertunes!!!! Reveal is my pick.. Amazing vibes n groove!”
    Jaime Anderson – “Good stuff again from Gem.. Especially feeling the Kassey Voorn remix.”
    Guy J – “Both versions of Reveal are gonna work for me. Thanx for sending, looking forward to playing. Good luck GEM!”
    Adam Beyer – “Like you say in the text… Lovely summer vibes across the release! Collect my fav.”
    Funk D’Void – “Brilliant!! Surrender is a summer anthem… 100%!”
    Eelke Kleijn – “Surrender is a BRILLIANT record!! Supporting!!”

    GEM 027 / Egbert – Get The Funk EP

    artist Egbert
    date July 15th 2013
    genre Techno
    track 1 Straktrekken 2 Get The Funk 3 Liefdesland
    Egbert is finally back with a full EP and boy does he nail it! All three tracks are serious crowd pleasers but in their own way. From in your face big room techno through melodic anthemic tech house to water-melon-ball minimal, this EP has it all! With his album ‘Warm’ coming up in September of 2013 all eyes are on the big friendly Rotterdam giant. And he doesn’t disappoint.

    Get The Funk opens the package with an infectious vocal hook, accompanied by Egbert’s signature crunchy percussion and driving wobbly bass which is guaranteed to destroy any dance floor from Amsterdam to Kazakhstan!

    Liefdesland utilizes the über modern tech house bass groove we have all grown to love. Egbert keeps the tune growing until it unexpectedly opens up into a summer open air trip that will remind you of the electro summer vibes of the 80’s.

    Straktrekken is the Dutch word for syncing two tracks. But forget all about pulling it tight, this track has been tried and tested all around the globe and is always a stand out. The mid naughty’s minimal vibe is back… but with balls the size of watermelons!!! This track has one of the most original riff cuts you have ever heard. Imagine a tin roof being ripped apart in a cyclone, but in a good way!
    Be ready to snatch this up on vinyl and digital from July 15th!

    Alan Fitzpatrick – “He’s BACK!! Really into this. Love the vibe! Gonna hammer Liefdesland!”
    Stephan Bodzin – “BIG tunes!! Love Get The Funk & Straktrekken!!! Full play on my tour!”
    Martin Eyerer – “Liefdesland is great for my radio show but Get The Funk for my club sets. Will drop tonight at Fusion Festival!”

    Carlo Lio – “Straktrekken is my pick here… Super groovy and I love the fx. Will play this!”
    Filterheadz – “This is EXCELLENT!! Especially Liefdesland.. Full support!!”

    date May 6th 2013
    genre House, techno
    track 1 363A 2 Mi Fella 3 Mi Fella (Ramon Tapia Remix)
    Since Gem Records first released their massive house track ‘All Night’ back in 2010 Kaap De Goede Hoop have been perfecting their production skills. Analogue synths and drum machines,  tape recorders and effects have been collected to create an impressive mad scientists lab. Kaap De Goede Hoop team up with John Mood and Eversines to create the epic dark live recorded ‘363A’. On the flipside we find the beautiful warm energetic ’Mi Fella’. Ramon Tapia added his signature pumping sound to the remix!

    After a two year stop Gem decided there could be no better EP for Gem to return to pressing vinyl than this analogue tape recorded Kaap De Goede Hoop jam. “When we were putting together 363A everything just fell in to place” Kaap de Goede Hoop’s Bobby van Putten says. “We spent an entire evening programming the equipment and tweaking with Robbert van der Bildt (also Kaap De Goede Hoop) John Mood and Eversines in the studio. After that we just hit record and started playing. Originally the track was close to 13 minutes long. All we changed afterwards was cutting a piece out to keep the energy up during the track. Everything else was spontaneous!”.
    Mi Fella (as in Fela Kuti), was created with afrobeat in mind. The deep subby bass line rattling hats and high pitched chanting combined with echoey guitar sounds make for an amazing combination and a an absolutely unique track. Ramon Tapia complements the release with his more controlled yet equally energetic clean but rough sounding remix!

    Pig (Pig&Dan) – “This is a BOMB ep from Gem once again!! 363A is probably my fav here.”

    Guy J – “Oh yes… 363A is the pick for me, ROCKIN’ track!! Thanx for sending and the best of luck with this one.”

    Jamie Anderson – “From this collection is definitely the 363A original and Tapia’s remix that stand out. Support!”

    Christian Smith – “Hey Gem this is a very nice package of music. My full support on everything here.”

    Kaiserdisco – “It’s all about Ramon’s remix for us on this one. DOPE track!!”

    Carlo Lio – “Very cool release from Gem.. Feeling 363A.. Definitely a great groove and something different. Mi Fella is great as well .. Will support fo sho!”

    Mihalis Safras – “Finally its out! Great trippy remix from the man himself! Will test this in Miami.”

    Dan (Pig&Dan) – “As to be expected Ramon kills it  Great work and full support for the whole release but the remix is my fav!!”

    Karotte – “Mi Fella is sounding nice to me and the remix from Ramon is a real goodie too!! Nice stuff!”

    Monika Kruse – “Ramon’s remixes will always be a sure shot!! It’s the same here! Support.”

    The Junkies – “Diggin the groove Ramon’s remix of Mi Fella. Its really got it going on in his mix!!”

    Roger Martinez kicks off 2013 with yet another EP that blew us away here at Gem headquarters. His previous EP ‘Die Magische Tijd’ was one of the peoples favorites of 2012 and the title track is followed up on the Eschaton EP with ‘De Machtige Trip’. Another beautiful melodic techno voyage that we have come to love from this exciting artist. ‘Eschaton’ and ‘Kracht’ are both extremely powerful high quality dance floor destroyers.

    track Plugh, Poodoo, Poodoo (Nima Khak remix)
    On/Off - Plugh EP | Gem Records 2012 by Gem Records
    GEM020 On-Off - Poodoo - GemRecordsBanner

    With summer on its way, Gem release one final banging and rolling pure techno monster to pump those last dark club gigs before the sun comes out to stay. On/Off return to Gem for a second appearance after releasing the massive “Type 1” on the label last year.

    On / Off is a relatively fresh project from the Netherlands which started life with a release on 8 Sided Dice back in late 2010. From day one their name has been synonimous with straight up kick-ass big room techno. Their Plugh EP on Gem is no exception.

    Both originals are essential tools to beef up a peak time techno set, preferably played as loud as possible on a big fat system with lots of basssss…. Nima Khak’s remix brings a more dubby element to the track, taking it to a deeper yet powerful place. One nasty EP to end the club season.

    GEM 019 / Roger Martinez – Psychedelic Evolution EP

    artist Roger Martinez
    date March 19th 2012
    genre Techno
    track Die Magische Tijd, 2012, Phoenix
    Roger Martinez - Psychedelic Evolution EP by Gem Records

    1. Die Magische Tijd

    2. 2012

    3. Phoenix

    Roger Martinez who recently joined the Gem Bookings roster, has been unstoppable lately producing gem after gem! This time he takes it to a higher level of consciousness with his Psychedelic Evolution EP…

    “Die Magische Tijd” translates into That Magic Time; the track was made in two hours and has a lot of unwanted his and noise over the lead. Six cleaner versions and a lot more hours later, Gem ended up sticking with the original with all its flaws as it just rocked so much. So the first recording was literally that magic time… A powerful melodic banger with lots of euphoria.

    2012 brings a tougher edge to this three tracker. Psychedelic sounds and synths echo around a pounding techno beat creating a tense fearful atmosphere with enough energy to keep it driving. To finish the package off is Phoenix. The final track has the warmest feel to it and provides a big peak time break that will take its listeners to pure ecstasy , ready to rock this year’s festivals.

    Adam Beyer – “2012 sounds really great!! Will play this!”
    Sian – “These are VERY big summer tunes!!! Die Magische Tijd maybe the fav, but all good!”
    Dubfire – “2012 is a BOMB!! thanks.”
    Christian Smith - “LOVE Die Magische Tijd! Original and beautiful, but with balls. Just love it! This track will stay in my playlist or a long time!”
    Dosem - “Love Roger’s music, always quality and Die Magische Tijd is no exception.”
    Pig – (Pig&Dan) - “Quality release as usual from GEM, all tracks are good but the more funky Phoenix caught my eye this time, keep the music coming :)”
    Hernan Cattaneo - “Oh yes! All tracks are really good Roger!! Die Magische Tijd stands out a little more than the rest but will play them all.”
    Guy J – “This is such a great release!! Phoenix excites me!!”

    2. SQL – Freckles

    3. SQL -Mechanics

    SQL – After a first appearance on Selected Gems, the boys at Gem are very proud to announce Pim ‘SQL’ van Horssen’s addition to the Gem Bookings roster. We expect a lot from this Beatport number 1 hit scoring, world touring, club playlist dominating 23 year old producer! And to accompany a big announcement is a big EP…

    Extended Sundays sports three SQL solo tracks. The title track Extended Sundays is a dramatic melodic master piece with a big room peak time potential. A proper Gem! Freckles and Mechanics have that signature SQL sound with throbbing bass lines, crisp and funky high hats, energetic kicks and overall quality production.

    You’ll be hearing loads more from this young producer from Amsterdam!

    Guy J – “This is such a great release, loving it all!!! :)”
    Pig - (Pig & Dan) – “Mechanics is ROCKING!! Will play tonight for sure!”

    After hearing Tom Laws’ twisted take on contemporary techno for the first time back in 2009, Secret Cinema kept an ear out for this talented British producer. A year after Laws’ appearance on Gem Sampler 2, a full EP finally appears on Gem Records!
    The Alien Pornography EP consists of three cutting edge tracks two of which are best described as dark atmospheric techno stompers ´Alien Pornography´ and Elemental and one slightly warmer sounding gem ´Paranoid Beauty´. All three sport that unique slightly out there quality techno sound that Gem is proudly known for! An essential autumn release…

    Stephan Bodzin – “I like it this release very much! Elemental is great!! Gonna play that one this weekend!”
    Pig – (Pig & Dan) – “Monster e.p. All the tracks are A side and so well produced, cant decide on a favorite, all i can say is i cant wait to play these out. Thanks GEM, again! :)

    Gem are back with an exciting compilation featuring tracks from artists returning to Gem and three new acts who will all be releasing a full EP on Gem this year: Remy Unger, On-Off and SQL!
    Marc Marzenit, Peter Horrevorts, Roger Martinez, Steve Slight and of course label front man Secret Cinema all return with absolutely wicked material at the cutting edge of techno as we have come to expect!

    Remy Unger (DJ Remy), one of the Netherland’s first and biggest names in techno, was added to the Gem Bookings roster in 2010. With his impressive releasing track record it was but a matter of time before he made an appearance on Gem Records. His contribution ‘Jawgrinder’ is an action packed melodic tech-houser with plenty of bounce as we have come to expect from Remy. A full EP will follow soon!

    On-Off is a project by Perry van de Vrede (Patch Park) and Joeri Versluis, both fresh and inspiring artists on the scene. For Selected Gems they cooked up a raw yet polished techno bomb and also promised a full EP to come! F.y.i. Perry and Remy are cooking up their own label ‘Fone Audio’. Expect some quality tunes soon!

    We’ve had our eye on SQL for a while now and have a great EP lined up this autumn. As a taste he contributes Diaphonous to the compilation. Previous releases made their way on to SK Supreme, Traum, Tribal Vision, Open Records and now Gem.

    If used (in)correctly, this selection of Gems can do some serious damage!

    Jeroen Verheij has been churning out dance floor smashing tracks for almost as long as many of today’s clubbers can remember under his aliases Secret Cinema, Grooveyard and Meng Syndicate to name a few. Tracks like Timeless Altitude, Mary Go Wild (EC Records) and Kurzweil (Cocoon) invoke warm memories in many of us. In December of 2009 Verheij set up his own label ‘Gem Records’ and started to release the unique sound he is famous for as a DJ. Now, just over a year later, Gem releases its first full album!

    The tracks on Secret Cinema’s ‘Minerals’, are inspired by the hardness, color and material of various minerals. CD1 consists of dance floor hammering tech-house and techno as we have come to expect from Secret Cinema. With contributions from Ramon Tapia, Egbert and m0h, timeless gems are guaranteed once again! Alongside these floor friendly tracks are some more abstract jams. All is woven together in a powerful continuous mix on CD (with download voucher for single tracks) and all tracks are available separately on vinyl and download.

    The Second CD is an ambient mix consisting of the sounds that form the base of the tracks on CD1, mixed with bizarre instruments, tuning forks and other sounds. Dirk-Jan Hanegraaff and Robert Kroos also known as Mental Youth, collaborated with Verheij on this creation. Perfect for relaxation after the party on CD1.

    Some say this could be some of the best work from one of the Netherland’s top techno producers of the past 18 years!

    track Pelican, Opal, Who Knows
    GEM010 by GEM Records

    GEM010 features Ramon Tapia’s own production ‘Pelican’ and ‘Opal’ in collaboration with Secret Cinema. The EP is completed by Belgian golden boy Steve Slight. A tasty 3 tracker!

    Ramon Tapia’s solo track ‘Pelican’ on the X-side is a tribal tech house hammer that will go down a guaranteed killer on the floor. This is some seriously bangin’ shit, people! On the Y1, Secret Cinema and Ramon team up to create a euphoric techey piece of work. On this jam,  simplicity is its beauty. These two make for a great production duo!

    The Y2 comes from rising star Steve Slight who was introduced to us by Ramon as being one of Belgium’s hottest producers at the moment. The first track we snatched up is ‘Who Knows’. This is the most explosive one on the EP. A well balanced smooth yet energetic and raw techno track. Keep an ear out for this guy!

    GEM 009 / Roger Martinez – Mainstage EP

    artist Roger Martinez
    date 14th of February
    genre Techno, Tech-House
    track Mainstage, House Music, Launch Pad
    GEM009 by GEM Records

    1. Roger Martinez – Mainstage
    2. Roger Martinez – House Music
    3. Roger Martinez – Launch Pad

    After well received appearances on Gem Sampler 1 and 2.2, Roger Martinez is back in full effect with his own EP ‘Mainstage’!

    Roger Martinez has only recently re-focussed his attention towards producing dance music, after spending over a year working on the critically acclaimed and award winning ambient project ‘Horizontal Excursions’. Martinez’ excursion appears to have left a lasting impression on his approach to music production.

    ‘Mainstage EP’ as a result, sounds like it might have been created in another dimension for use on Earth’s dancefloors! The title track ‘Mainstage’ provides a big room techno sound at first glance, but huge reverbs and filtered delays give the track a darker, dubbier feel than others in its genre. As the track builds up, Native South American chants are introduced and tension is built up, giving the track a ritualistic vibe.

    Next up is ‘House Music’. A warm and wobbly background synth forms the base of the track. Layer upon layer of percussion, claps, hihats and effects repeating monotonousely are piled up, interrupted by the occasional screeching saw tooth and surreal vocals. 7,5 minutes in space!

    The EP finishes off with ‘Launch Pad’ which, with its funky bouncy bass line, bears the greatest resemblance to music as we know it. Techey, edgey, fresh and a definite Gem!

    Stephan Bodzin – “Fat shit. Like House Music most. Bomb release.”
    Mihalis Safras – “Oh my my! I so love this label! Mainstage is the proper track for a real techno set!”
    Dosem – “Mainstage and House Music… this is the sound guys, absolutely full support.”
    Adam Beyer – “Mainstage for me from this EP. ”
    Anderson Noise – “Great release, maximo support!!”
    Pig – (Pig & Dan) – “All I can say is I love this label and the output they have is absolutely of the highest quality thanks for the great sounding music….Mainstage is just PPPPHHHAAATTTTTT and House Music is a beautiful journey.”
    Wally Lopez – “Will play…Mainstage for!”
    Orde Meikle – (Slam) – “Dark and deep tech house – Mainstage for me.”
    Joel Mull – “Most Definitely gonna play Mainstage!! Great production.”
    Carlo Lio – “House Music is my pick! Nice work!”
    Karotte – “Launch Pad is nice. Will play this one for sure.”
    Kaiserdisco – “Mainstage and Launch Pad sounds nice, will try them out thanks!”

    track Haasten, Yourself
    GEM004 by GEM Records

    A1: Egbert – Haasten
    B1: Egbert – Yourself

    Ooooooh yeeeaaah!!! Haasten is here! One of techno’s fastest rising stars brings his strongest EP to date with two huge tracks you will be hearing lot of this summer!

    Egbert returns to Gem… ‘Haasten’ (translates into hurrying) has been destroying crowds during Egbert’s live sets around the globe for the past few months. A dark commanding bass line that skips over the beat is accompanied by a retro sounding orchestral jab to create what is looking to become one of this year’s biggest techno tracks!

    The B-side ‘Yourself’ has also proven to be a crowd pleaser and is paving the way for the future of percussion based techno. The punishing drums, deep basses, narrow mids and rattling hats kick ass throughout the track before taking a break for 30 seconds to introduce some melody and continue on mercilessly afterwards. A mean f*cking package!

    GEM 003 / Secret Cinema – Glad Chord EP

    artist Secret Cinema
    date May 5th 2009 Glad Chord EP
    genre Techno
    track Glad Chord, Basically, Glad Chord (Psycatron Remix)
    GEM003 by GEM Records
    GEM003 Label 12inch

    A1: Secret Cinema – Glad Chord
    A2: Secret Cinema – Basically
    B1: Secret Cinema – Glad Chord (Psycatron Remix)

    After two quality EP’s by Egbert and Peter Horrevorts and a DJ compilation by Secret Cinema, the label front man presents his first EP on Gem: Glad Chord.

    This powerful package includes the melodic anthem ‘Glad Chord’ which builds and builds tension with its repetitive synth jabs and unfolds into pure euphoria before diving back into the groove.

    The A2 is a deep hypnotic tech-bomb called ‘Basically’. The track captures its listener with funky percussion over a complex bass line combined with quirky synths echoing around and pulling you in deeper and deeper.

    The Glad Chord remix on the flip is provided by Belfast based duo Paul Hamill and Dave Oost Lievense a.k.a. Psycatron. Already they are Irelands biggest exporters of electronic music and many see them as one of the greats of the future. Psycatron treated Glad Chord with added strings and a more varied sequence giving the track an extra dance floor friendliness that many will appreciate.

    This is definitely another Gem!

    DJ Feedback:

    Umek - “Amazing tunes!!!”
    Marc Romboy - “Glad Chord…Exactly my personal thing! 10/10!”
    John Selway - “Not just the chord, I’m glad for the whole release.”

    GEM 002 / Peter Horrevorts – Bloody Hands EP

    artist Peter Horrevorts
    date March 1st 2010 Bloody Hands EP
    genre Techno, Tech-House
    track Bloody Hands, Nymph, Bloody Hands (Marc Marzenit Monster Remix)
    GEM002 by GEM Records
    GEM002 label 12 inch 600 x 600

    A1: Peter Horrevorts – Bloody Hands
    B1: Peter Horrevorts – Nymph
    B2: Peter Horrevorts – Bloody Hands (Marc Marzenit Monster Remix)

    GEM002 The title track (Bloody Hands) has a unique futuristic sparkle with plenty of funk and loads of interesting effects, characteristic of Horrevorts’ productions. The lead and bassline build up tension throughout the track, subtly climaxing after 5 minutes with some guaranteed hands in the air action!

    On the B-side we find ‘Nymph’. This funky deep techey track slots perfectly into those hypnotizing moments of the night. Quality production!

    The B2 is remixed by Marc Marzenit who captured the subtlety of ‘Bloody Hands’ perfectly with his ‘Monster Remix’. This monster has a slightly deeper, more progressive flavor than the original yet maintaining its energy.

    Rumor has it that the remix has been signed to Secret Cinema’s first mixed compilation ‘Welcome To My Club’ (March 2010). One impressive release from two of today’s most promising producers!

    DJ Feedback:

    Sharam – “Bloody Hand (Marc Mazenit mix) sounds like a record that will be in my box for a while. Can’t wait to drop this in Brazil.”
    King Unique – “Original is staggeringly good, murderous techno, and marzenit’s solaris vibed remix is fantastic. More of both please.”
    Technasia – “Original Mix & Nymph are both huge. Full support. Will play both of them.”

    GEM001 is Egbert’s “Dezelfde weg EP“. Secret Cinema has been dropping it at festivals during the summer and the crowd response has been amazing!

    Side A is a hypnotic melody driven techno slammer titled “Dezelfde weg”.

    On the flipside is a deeper darker track called ‘Vette Sounds’ with creepy yet commanding synths over a pounding bassline driven groove.
