After two strong releases on Electronical Reeds, the Brussels-based artist Exon Bacon inaugurates Play Label Records with his latest EP, Watching Dogs. Play Label Records is the extension of the collective Play Label that has become a key player in the music scene of Brussels with more than hundreds of events to its credit. This first release sets up the artistic direction of this label that seeks to develop a real dancefloor approach and a strong party spirit.
The release is opened by the original mix that could be summarize with the expression “powerful bassline, persistent heady voice and burning dancefloor”. The Parisian duo Villanova embarks us into a spin with a darker atmosphere, a deep foreground voice and a strong and repetitive gimmick. This remix reminds us why this Parisian duo knows such rapid ascent on the worldwide electronic scene. The Berlin-based and San Francisco born artist Yooj takes the opposite course to two first tracks with a deeper approach and a lighter atmosphere to offer a sunny and tasty deep house track that will delight all the dancefloor. Lastly, DC Salas, another Belgian talent, filters the voice, redefines the percussion and opens the horizon to take the direction of Tech House track.
This Exon Bacon’s EP acts as the foundation stone of a future label to keep an eye on and to follow with a great attention.

After his first release Crispy EP last summer, the Brussels-based artist Exon Bacon is back on Electronical Reeds. Since the moment he was discovered by Play Label collective back in 2009, this young composer is regularly on tour and also brilliantly kicking off his own parties going in Brussels by the name of the Downtown Club. With the return of spring, the track “Sunny Day” is sure to catch the audience with its light melody with jazzy inspirations and punchy baseline in the moment of a radiant. Martin Patiño’s remix follows the same sunny pattern with a more dancefloor feeling by putting accent on the brass and by adding a voice tinged Afro House. This atmosphere is offset by Dub version. Indeed, the Italian artist keeps only the darkest elements and slowed the rhythm to provide a heavier and more shadowy atmosphere.
“Last Tango In Berlin” begins with a light but very present rhythm, very quickly accompanied by strings specific to the musical universe of the artist, creating a light and subtle journey. For the last remix of the EP, the English artist based in Berlin, Dave Ellesmere, brings a very different vision compared to the original. From the start, after a quick intro, a powerful kick knocks down the dancefloor and is complemented by a devilishly efficient rhythm, offering a delicate mix between the gentle strings of the original and the Dave Ellesmere’s massive baseline
