Great news for all Deckard fans out there!
As you may have noticed, Deckard has been ultra-busy lately, by having released 2 full lengths, a 12″ and a 7″ in less than one year, but yet, he strikes again!
This time he brings out an even darker side with his “Soundscapes”. This mini-album includes 3 tracks (over 26 minutes in total) of pure dark ambience, composed in a dreamy and cinematic way, making this truly unique… “Illbient” as he puts it all in one word, this comes as a free download (with “name your price” option incase you’d like to support) through his bandcamp page and also as a full stream via his soundcloud page. Links for both below.
Spread the word!

As time draws near for DJ Scientist’s debut solo album “For Better, For Worse.”, that drops in late October, we have prepared the first single “Raincoatman”. The release contains the original version, which is his already classic tune, a brand new remix by Andreikelos, the unreleased heavy beat-driven track “Nightdrive Memories” as well as the previously released DJ Sept Remix of “Raincoatman“!
Though the single’s official release date is set for October 5th, DJ Scientist put it up directly on his own Bandcamp page as a very special and limited free download which will last for one week only. Then, the single will be taken down and re-appear for sale on the original release date (October 5th). So, grab it while it is available now!
Here’s the link to the free download:
Additionally, the single track can also be found for streaming on soundcloud:
A few words about the release…
“Raincoatman” is instrumental Hip-Hop at its very best – rarely are there songs that can express melancholy and beauty with such perfection.
Additionally, the slowed down remix by the immensely talented Greek producer Andreikelos, who recently made a lot of noise with his “Euryphaessa EP”, adds an even deeper vibe to this captivating tune.
Next, the meticulously constructed album track “Nightdrive Memories” showcases Scientist’s production and arrangement skills. Another great remix of “Raincoatman” by DJ Sept is concluding the single, a track which previously has been released by Equinox on his remix EP.

A keen supporter of 2econd Class Citizen and our label over the years. He’s always had the time to do a nice write up in his blog www.djfood.org and help us in any way he can.

As a special Silvester treat, we decided to release an exclusive remix of Ceschi’s song “Black And White And Red All Over” by Greek producer Andreikelos.
With this new version, Andreikelos provides us with a darker and more electronic perspective of the song, but still tries to maintain a portion of the romantic and melancholic feel of the original – DJ Scientist produced – version.

Ohhhh yesssssss…. It’s time to celebrate the 25th release on Equinox Records! We are so happy to finally release this neat box set package that contains a 7inch, a custom USB stick and an audio cassette.
Buddy Peace & Phonatic provided us with two of the dopest megamixes possibly ever made! 2 x 25 minutes of action packed Equinox sound – cut up, edited, remixed. Whether you are familiar with the Equinox catalogue or not – you have to check this out!
Generous people as we all are, we want to share these mixes with you FOR FREE and also want to encourage you to SHARE THEM with your friends, to post them on your blog, or whatever. Please just copy the following link:
and/or link to the official release page:
But thats that not all folks! Equinox Records wouldn’t be called Equinox Records if there wasn’t a dope piece of vinyl included in the package as well. Therefore, Part II of this gorgeous package is a bunch of unreleased remixes from the label archive. Amongst these are tunes from the never released remix EP that was planned for the 2008 release “One Year & A Day – A Sound Exposure Vol.2“. The A side of the vinyl contains Deadpan Darling’s “Laugh Track” remixed by Deckard. And on the flip, 2econd Class Citizen’s classic “Wishing Well” gets reworked by The Raincoatman and Vangel from Canada. Further tracks on the digital version include “A Year And A Day” by The Peddlers (with Roy Phillips), remixed by Twistedlogic & Pesticyde, “A New Day” by 2econd Class Citizen this time remixed by DJ Phonatic and a new version of Asup’s “Untitled” by lodsb. If you are not into buying nice looking boxsets you buy these tracks seperately on itunes and many other download stores:
Last but not least, as Part III of the box set, we are happy to release the 2007 tour video that features incredible unseen live footage by Ceschi, Noah23, The Dedicated Beatheads & 2econd Class Citizen. The 50 minute movie is definitely fun to watch and is available on the ultra limited 2 GB USB Stick that comes along with the first 50 copies of the box set. However, those who buy the cheaper normal package (without the USB) will receive a free download code for the whole video.
So yeah, that’s it folks. Hope we’ll soon be able to hit number 50!
