THe HAUL music thread
Hi forum peoples, Seeing as the trend is to keep new releases in the one thread, I'm starting this here one for HAUL.

Good timing as HAUL #003 has just been released. Check it:

____________



HAUL 003 - "D.I.T.H.L"
You might be surprised to hear that Craig McWhinney is the one of us here at HAUL least in the limelight, the dark horse so to speak... a character so far out to sea he may as well belong to Davy Jones' locker. And it's from way down there that we at HAUL would like to offer you Craig's first EP on our label. Something to pick you up off the ocean floor but not necessarily deliver you from evil (or groovil if you read our last press release).

An acronym for "Deep In The Hurt Locker" - D.I.T.H.L. - could have let loose with a whole swag of emotional baggage yet Craig preferred to produce some super charged techno instead. D.I.T.H.L. builds from the deep and breaches the surface like a depth charge, setting sail on a perfect mix of tight, jackin' percussion and waves of super synth progression. A whale of a tune.

Meanwhile, Christian Vance goes even deeper (into the HURT LOCKER) with his exceptional deep house remix. Full of moody ambience, signature chords, rhythms and Christian’s own vocals. This man demonstrates once again why he is at the forefront of Australian electronic music and why he needs to flick his fringe back every now and again.

Finishing off the package is Mike Callander’s house-inspired outing (reminiscent of some Dirty House vibes from back in the day). With its simple peaks and drops, stabs and sirens, one wonders whether Mike might have lost himself at the disco. In any case, his use of Craig’s original elements is applied to devastating effect.

So close down the hatch on this submarine, get your periscope ready and dive with us into the HURT LOCKER. We promise you won't feel a thing.

The hurt locker isn't really an emotional place, it's where you try to escape from when sleep dep. kicks in luckily, haven't been there for a good while.

This one's tight, mates - and way cool. I think I confessed how much I dig it in a wayward mail to Craig.

Finally gave the latest HAUL a listen. Quality all round. I love the different perspectives from each contributor. Genuinely different yet similar. This is a common theme on each release that I have noticed and gives it a certain uniqueness that other labels don't have. Keep it coming!

Drone is stil my favourite as all three mixes are different and excellent for what they are (given their different styles).

Haul 4 is a very close second.

Chase The Night (McWhinney Mix)!!!

OK so here it is, the official press release and early feedback! Hope you're enjoying the release, and if you haven't checked it out yet, here's the link.

https://www.beatport.com/en-US/html/...%20The%20Night




It's dark outside, let's "chase the night" sings a possum-eyed Christian Vance to the techno kids who can't get off the dancefloor to make their way home.

He was just like them once. He understands. At 16 he was a permanent fixture on the Melbourne clubbing schedule. Not as a performer, but as a punter. The little boy that loved nothing more than the raw, warm sound of analogue vibrations at high amplitude.

These days, he is releasing on Ripperton's Perspectiv imprint, and remixing for the ever-impressive Versatile label... but he's equally excited about - and we quote directly from his Facebook status updates - lingering flavours of wild mushrooms and chevre on toast, old Rockford Riesling, Gruyere souffle, Coq au Vin, a glass of Chassagne Montrachet, Tarte au Citron for dessert. Limoncello.... espresso.... and you're wondering what happened between now and then?

It's as if he leads a double life. Man of the world meets child of the night. True story. No word of a lie. After hours, he's the king of the kids, that Christian Vance. He gets older every year, but through them, and their dancefloor chase, he and they remain linked in some kind of static youth. He's the Peter Pan of Australian techno. He can crowe, he can fly, he can chase the night.

But then you read his Facebook status and you wonder what goes on inside his head. Is this the same man? Christian's label mates at Haul Music, Craig and Mike, have been so traumatised by the realisation of these goings on that they though it might be easier for them, therapeutic even, if you all knew what they were dealing with.

Getting inside Christian's head is a blessing and a curse, a beautiful beast of a challenge, a journey not safe to undertake on one's own. Not even with a good travel companion. Safety in numbers. Let's Chase The Night together. Please Bring a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc for the peasants and an olive branch for the Gods.

In a departure from Haul Music's traditional three-part remix format, HAUL004 features two versions of the theme by the original artist, and a remix by Craig McWhinney. Mike was too scared to venture any further into Christian's headspace without a guarantee of his safe return. Christian could not confirm. So, good luck to you all when you listen.

We're really proud of our 4th release here at Haul, and totally over the moon about the response so far:

Laurent Garnier - really like the Cold light mix Will play this
Carl Cox - Great mixes, the Craig McWhinneys rocks it for me. Fantastic!!
Hernan Cattaneo - excellent all tracks rock will play big time
Stacey Pullen - I like the hard light mix but Craig's S&W mix is the one!!!
Dave Seaman - Lovely warm techy business. A man of fine taste in his food as well !!
Renato Cohen - Wicked remix!!!
Quarion - Yes, a very solid release! Mr. Vance goes from strength to
strength and "Chase the Night" is one of his best tracks!
Brothers Vibe - Craig McWhinneys mix is Blazin'!
Carl Craig - nice to see you back Christian
Paco Osuna - Chase the Night (Craig McWhinneys Soft and Warm Remix) is very nice rmx, I love the synth and the groove
Lenny Fontana (Ministry of Sound) - very good dancefloor trak. I will rock it
Pig and Dan - Really liking the sounds in the Cold light mix. Great grooves with some touches that are unique.
Hybrid - Love the Hard light mix.... Superb stuff and the remix is quality as well
Djuma Soundsystem (Get Physical) = Yeah! Chase the night, guys! Hard light + Craigs mix being my faves!
Nick Warren - the hard light mix works for me
Jamie Stevens (Infusion) - Ahh Haul.... Quality. Absolutely loving enveloping myself in the John Carpenter-esque synth work of the Hard
Light Mix. Vance for president! McWhinney also hits a hole in one. wonderful release!
Kasey Taylor (Vapour) - Top package here thanks... Vance Hard mix and Craig's mix are great....
Alex Dolby - the craig mcwhinneys remix send me at mental hospital!!!
Mark Dynamix - liking Craig's soft and warm mix the most
Deepchild (Get Physical / Dieb Audio) - Smashin' stuff, all of it. Surely one of Australia's deepest exports...the swaggery swing of McWhinney's rework is a choice flavour addition. BAM!
Rene Amesz - Craig's remix is amazing....will support this one.... xx
DJ Misjah - liking the hard mix
Anthony Pappa - All of the mixes are good. My fave is the "Vances Cold Light Mix".
Jim Rivers - hard light mix is really cool...nice grower
Simon Flower - Superb EP! The Vance mixes are totally doing it for me, very hard to choose between them...
Onionz - Vances Cold Light Mix has a slammin b line. Soul slavery style! Craig Mcwhinneys mix is excellent!
Anderson Noise - Craig McWhinneys is great!!
Cristian Varela - Great Sound!
Matthew Dekay - Nice tune
D Ramirez - Love it!
