2017 Rewind: UUn

How was 2017 for you?
UUn: 2017 was a big year for me. I moved from my lifelong hometown of Kansas City to Detroit which has been great a source of inspiration. This resulted in quite a few EP releases which I am really happy with. I also played in some of my favorite places in the USA, including New York City, Denver, and Detroit.

Highlights?
Probably releasing my label’s first vinyl, Ego Death 003. I visited Europe for the first time, spending seven days in Berlin and 13 days in Amsterdam for ADE. Already planning my next trip!

Lowlights?
I didn’t perform live as much as I’d like, as I spent most of the year in the studio working on a bunch of releases. I have a lot of big things coming out in 2018 from this period so I will be able to focus on playing out more which will be nice!

Song of the year?
GAS – “Narkopop 10”


What’s your New Year’s resolution?

To divide my time better between production, promotion, and performing. To improve my production techniques and live performance. It’s a lifelong journey!

How was 2017 for you?
In terms of music, spectacular. I couldn’t ask for more.

Highlights?
Starting my own things, re-connecting and discovering lots of amazing new stuff and people.

Lowlights?
Musically, I can’t tell. Globally, politics.

Song of the year?
This is a hard one. Hertz’s “Monster” I would say.

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
To have a dog. (I didn’t think this one [through] very much.)

How was 2017 for you?
Tom Lown: I finally managed to release my debut album after tinkering away for a couple of years, which I’m really pleased with.

Highlights?
Camping in the sun with my family in France.

Lowlights?
Camping in the rain with my family in France.

Song of the year?
“Bullets” featuring Little Dragon by Kaytranada. This is just great. It manages to straddle the line between sounding a bit retro but very fresh and now. Very cool production/sound with top vocals from Little Dragon. I actually Shazzamed this in a shop in Cambridge then bought the album.

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
Start working on the tricky second album.

2017 Rewind: Joe Morris

How was 2017 for you?
Joe Morris: A bit of a mixed bag. Some great things and some not so great things have come to pass. Musically not as busy as last year but I’ve travelled more this year than any other.

Highlights?
Getting the opportunity to DJ in some new places, such as New York and Moscow and a particularly great gig in Berlin in May.

Lowlights?
I’ve not had any particular musical low points. I guess the continuing concerning rise of divisive situations we’re seeing across Europe and the World at the moment worries me.

Song of the year?
MAMA – “Unmask Me” (Ashley Beedle Remix)

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
To spend more time working on my own projects. I can be my own worst enemy with trying to juggle too many things so I’m making a conscious effort to streamline and focus on some things I’ve been wanting to work on for a long time.

How was for you?
2017 was about getting my act together, living a completely sober life and stepping away from party scene. Definitely a new chapter. It was about becoming stronger spiritually and physically. Many eye-opening experiences and priorities shifted as a result.

Highlights?
Completely changing lifestyle and schedule, which allowed me to have more time to be productive. I was able to write quite a bit of new material and start meditating — finally 🙂

Lowlights?
Mom being diagnosed with leukemia. Nothing is more important than health and family — ever.

Track of the year?
Cosmjn – “Endpiano”

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
Silent retreat. Move to Europe for some time. Learn a new language.
