Stripped Recordings returns to Vinyl after almost 12 years

To be fair only the first Stripped Recordings release in September 2005 was released on vinyl before the digital era finally all but wiped out the format and with it a multitude of record stores big and small across the globe. But now there’s a kind of renaissance happening with vinyl, obviously not to the heights of a bye gone age but a resurgence nonetheless of the format. After deliberating long and hard about wether or not to get back into that arena we have decided that we will make a comeback with a 300 x 12″ run of the next single on the label which’ll also be the first single release of 2017. Full details of this release from Lithuanian producer / dj Donatello and Australian singer songwriter Shane Blackshaw will be announced shortly after the new year with online premiere’s and artwork reveals etc etc . Until then lets take you back to the last time we released on vinyl over a decade ago.

190-SR Phonic Scoupe & Shane Blackshaw – Tipi | Stripped Recordings

We are pleased to welcome back Australian singer songwriter Shane Blackshaw to Stripped Recordings with a brand new collaboration “Tipi” alongside label regulars Lithuanian duo Phonic Scoupe. Shane’s last single for us saw him pairing up with another Lithuanian combo Kastis Torrau & Arnas D for the hit “Down Do Long” late last year. Shane has also recorded with the like of Nick Devon, Vanilla Ace, Jade Blue, Lee M Kelsall, releasing on Toolroom, Steyoyoke, Go Deeva, and Manual Music.

177-SD Phonic Scoupe | Grudge: The Remixes EP | Stripped Recordings

Lithuanian duo Phonic Scoupe return centre stage to Stripped Recordings as we revsit a track from their 2014 album “Seven Sins” which was the only one not to receive the remix treatment until now. We have four remixes to present to you and it’s a pretty strong package even if we say so ourselves. Dmitry Molosh, Simos Tagias, Futur-E, and Lateral Cut Groove deliver the goods admirably here we’re sure you’ll all agree.

190-SD DARKND | Cairo | Stripped Digital

DARKND (aka Andy Woods) returns to Stripped Digital for his second release on the label after his debut “Coma EP” twelve months ago. Here the former Ministry Of Sound International DJ tutor delivers “Cairo” with his Original complemented admirably with remixes from Lithuanian Donatello, and fellow Englishmen Audioglider & Justin Steel.

174-SR Kastis Torrau & Arnas D feat. Shane Blackshaw | Down So Long | Stripped Recordings

The extremely talented Lithuanian producer / dj duo Kastis Torrau & Arnas D return once again to Stripped Recordings following their critically acclaimed remix for Norman H & Minoru Hirata’s “La Bufadora Revisited” with a brand new full release collaborating with Australian singer / songwriter Shane Blackshaw. Shane has collaborated with the likes of Lee M Kelsall, James Silk, Vanilla Ace and Jade Blue releasing on Toolroom, Manual Music, Steyoyoke, Go Deeva Records and more. Kastis & Arnas D have built their reputation individually and together in the studio over the last six years with a constant stream of quality releases & remixes including a much coveted win in a Sasha remix contest which earned them the opportunity to collaborate with him for his Last Night On Earth label at the end of 2012. This new single entitled “Down So Long” features the Original Vocal Mix accompanied by a Dub.

167-SR Norman H, Minoru Hirata – La Bufadora Revisited (inc. Kastis Torrau & Arnas D and Phonic Scoupe Remixes) | Stripped Recordings

Norman H & Minoru Hirata – “La Bufadora” gets two new reworkings, and of course, both of the highest order! Kastis Torrau & Arnas D are first up, and land us with a deep and hypnotic gem, its moody and tasty synths sounding out, while the underlying arp tinkers away, with subtle percussive fills meeting phat sub bass. Whats not to like?. Phonic Scoupe beef things right up, with its chunky beats and seriously large synths booming out and causing mayhem. Layers of melodics intersperse beautifully creating a bit of a moment!
