Sending me Demo's

As the label gathers a bit of awareness the amount of demo submissions I'm getting is creeping up -  which is fantastic and very exciting, but it also brings with it a need to manage the process a little, so I've pulled together a 'standard' response to the emails. So, I thought I'd post it online here so I can direct people to it and help us both get what we want!

Thanks for reaching out to UM Records.

I'm always keen to hear new and exciting new music, and try and listen to all demo's as soon as I can (this may take a week or more).

The label is primarily a deep house label, so please bear this in mind when sending tracks over for consideration.

All EP's will feature two original tracks, so sending over a single track isn't going to work, so think about a pairing, how they compliment each other and work as an EP before sending me the following:


When sending tracks for consideration please follow these simple guides:

1: If you're in doubt whether your tracks are right for the UM Records catalogue spend some time and listen to the previous releases here http://soundcloud.com/um-records

2: Send me private links via Soundcloud (or similar provider) so that I can stream online (if I want to get a download after hearing it I'll be in touch)

3: Give me a little info on you - any releases you've had previously, labels you've feature on (if any) etc

4: Don’t send tracks that have already been available for free download. I'm looking for fresh new music that has yet to be heard - that way the excitement is there for everyone

5: Send finished tracks. Or at least tracks that are 90% finished - I need to get a good feel for the tracks- UM Records manages it's own mastering - so final mixdowns are perfect

6: Avoid sending out mass demos - if you're sending it to 50 other labels, I'm unlikely to be interested in the track and there's a chance you've not really thought about whether UM Records is the best place for the release (see No.1)

7: If the track uses samples you will be personally responsible for clearing them and supplying me with clearance at a later stage - think about that now to save us all the aggro later

8: Be Patient! The amount of prog house, hard house techno jibber jack, dubstep, jackin
house and other music I get means it might take me a while to come back to you - but I will! If you're going to chase me up - give me a few days at least! ;)

Thanks again for your interest in UM Records and I look forward to hearing from you at this address:

UM presents: HouseRiders

HouseRiders are a production based duo from Montreal, Canada. They are quickly gaining a name for themselves with releases on labels such as iRecords, Soul Industries, Cromarti Records, Aenaria Music, DeepWit Recordings and of course my own UM Records. 

The duo are Brice Martin-Spelle (aka Deep Spelle) and Jeff Fontaine. According to their own press info; "Brice brings a lot of energy, excitement and passion while Jeff focuses more on the technical side, each adding a balance to the other which manifests itself in their outstanding tracks". 

After two years of working together they have developed a sound that has quickly made the pair a fans favourite, with their deep, organic sounds. Their optimistic view of life and united love of music, they've found working together is often more like two kids building sandcastles in the sun – a passion that shines through in their music and mixes.

UM presents: Jesus Pablo

As many of you will know, Jesus Pablo is a UK-based DJ/Producer/Remixer/Fashion Designer (it keeps him busy!), not to mention a born and bred scouser from Liverpool who chose a very Spanish alias, Jesus Pablo - as you do! Those of you that follow UM will also know he's something of a regular on shows over the last year or so with his releases, remixes and more recently releases on his own label, Something Different. After all that it was about time he got round to doing a guest mix!

"Music should make you dance, smile and think all at the same time, so that's what I intend to do. Appreciate the DJ and the music and the rest will follow, you will begin to see how they worked together."

I've decided to be original and make a mixtape of what I'd play in a club while gigging - not just fill it with promos, exclusives and all my own material trying to be cool and upfront. I'd like to think I was a real DJ, one who will take you on a journey for the mind, body and soul.

You can find my original and remix work on labels like Lost My Dog, Headtunes, 26 Tea Drops, Deep Edition, 3am Recordings and many more, plus future productions are due out on i! Records, Cromarti, Draft, Headset, Savoir Faire Musique and Bulletdodge.

Here is 60 minutes of house. Nothing fancy. Just house music.  Thanks. Jesus Pablo.

UM update

As those of you that have followed UM since the early days of fanzines and podcasts, and even those of you that hooked up when I finally took the plunge into social media will know the show has always been about the music.

The 'concept' has always been to showcase the best new music (or at least the tunes I've been enjoying the most) and help promote them to fellow music lovers. Now the thing is, as we all become more and more engaged in social media and increasing numbers of labels and artists become used to using the likes of Facebook , Soundcloud, Twitter and the like, the hum of promotion is creating a cut through problem all of it's own.

I got to thinking about the shows recently, the format, the way in which it works from my end of things, the process I have, the time I have and everything else in between (yes I like a good ponder). And came to some conclusions that it was time to adapt to this new world order and give UM some new life in order for it to continue to be as successful as it has to date.

The result of this head scratching is that from mid November onwards the UM shows will be shorter - around an hour or so in length. That means rather than 20-23 tracks per week I'll be selecting 10-12, making it harder for releases to get included and therefore more valued by the listeners as the tunes to look out for.

The other positives of such a move is that downloading to mobile devices will be easier and less bulky, and yes people can fit it on a CD if they still do that rather than plug their pod in? But, like I've always said, the idea is to help sell the tunes, so the 128kbps will still be used to protect the actually releases profitability.

The result of this change will obviously impact on the radio stations currently broadcasting the shows, and hopefully they be able to continue to support the shows. But given the scale of Soundcloud followers coupled with both the untitledmusic and Deep House fans pages the direct audience is growing at more than 50 people a day - and that, amongst the mass promotion we're seeing across social networks has to be a the focus - listeners are opting into these groups, based on the music they get to hear and UM's shows are part of that package.

Change isn't always welcomed by everyone, and I know a shorter format won't please everyone - I'm keen to hear people's views on these things (as always) so leave a comment or get in touch.

UM presents: DJ Deeka

DJ and promoter Deeka hails from Italy and has 18 years under his belt behind the DJ booth. His passion for house music has been inspired by the likes of Tony Humphries, Frankie Knuckles, Deep Dish, Claudio Coccoluto, Junior Jack and Masters at Work, shaping his deep funky soulful sound.
With plans to develop his own productions soon it's a pleasure to be able to introduce yet another local talent from right here in the home of UM, Wellington, New Zealand.
