main behind the release.
Air, Wood, Mud, Water.
The alias of young Romanian producer Vlad
Matei speaks of a spiritual bond with nature and of a longing toward a purity
of form in the eclectic tastes that make up his sound.
In his productions as well as DJ sets, the
heady brew that defines his sound is a mix of new beat, dub, tribal house,
Berlin School electronics, classic afro-cosmic spins and the leftfield take on
'balearic' that has gained ground in recent years.
Warm yet vicious, the balance between the
metallic and the organic is like a vibrating core throughout the tracks on his
debut 12" for Balearic
As he is not one for short cuts, these are
the fruits of careful arrangements on classic synth gear.
Much of his style can also be traced to his
fascination with the aesthetics of Japanese martial arts movies, which lends
substance to his disciplined approach: sometimes bordering on the minimalistic but
always with a window open towards the wilderness.
A catch up for you lovely folk mixes here from Outlaws Yacht Club from myself & Craig also recent excursions to Manchester and all the lovely radio mixes and other mixes people have asked us to do dig in the suns out.

Rob Butler & Craig Swaynard (Be With Records) talk to Ned :
~ be with ned: Ned Doheny’s first ever European tour ~
We got talking to Ned Doheny over a series of calls between North London and the famed Doheny ranch in Southern California.
We asked him when he last toured this side of the Atlantic. ‘Never’ was
his abrupt answer. We simply had to put this right, especially given
that a whole new generation has discovered Ned’s music for the first
These special gigs will present Ned at his most pure and
pared back. Acoustic and solo, really letting the songs and his craft
breathe. Given he wants an adventure, we’ve chosen interesting venues in
each city, as well as simpatico partners to help us put on a party in
each venue, celebrating Ned and his music.
