Surefire UK / EU Newsletter Feb 2011


We’re pleased to announce the addition of SEPALCURE and OCTOBER to the Surefire roster.

Sepalcure is the collaborative project of Travis Stewart (Machinedrum) and Praveen Sharma (Praveen & Benoît). From their base in New York they have been making waves on Scuba's Hot Flush label with their mix of tribal dub, house and 2-step beats, and Surefire are proud to welcome them to the roster. Touring their live set in the EU in May/June. Check their tunes here and their website at

We also welcome Producer, DJ and Caravan Records label boss, Julian 'October' Smith to the Surefire family. With a penchant for making and playing House, Techno, Deep House, Dub and Disco as well as a love of analogue synthesizers, tape machines, electric guitars and smoking, he should fit right in. Available for (strictly vinyl!) DJ sets worldwide. Check October's anti-NYE mix here and interview here.

One of bass music’s hottest properties right now, Illum Sphere recently dropped his latest EP on Pinch’s Tectonic Records. With two cuts from the man himself alongside an Indigo remix, it's a release that pushes boundaries and further enhances his already growing reputation. An essential purchase.

With work already underway on this exciting project, be sure to keep your ear to the ground for what promises to be something a little bit special…
