We are delighted to welcome up-and-coming Hamburg-based producer, Simon Ferdinand to the Landed camp – an artist who is producing some of the finest Raw, Deep House music out there at the moment! Tipped as the rising star of 2014, we are honoured to have Simon as one of the Landed team and roster.

His new EP, Back To The Raw – as the title suggests – sees Simon delivering four original tracks of stand-out, raw vibe. Already moving dance floors across the globe and gaining support from notable DJs such as Delano Smith, Norm Talley, Gari Romalis, Alton Miller, Santonio Echols, Moomin, Bazz, Moodymanc, Varoslav & Jon Reynolds.

A1: Jack My Records – Original Mix: Simon kickstarts the EP with a jacking, dancefloor destroyer. Tough drums with a strong rolling bass-line, worked magically with smooth-moving sound design and spoken words. It’s guaranteed to take the roof off, given any right moment.

A2: Tissue – Original Mix: Moving on seamlessly, Tissue takes us further adrift into our journey of the Deep via a 60s psychedelic vibe. Tightly knitted drums backed with a serious low-end bass-line create a sincere and tough vibe from the start. Add in jazzy keys and subtle drops to keep things flowing at a solid pace, and Tissue leaves you with a natural high sensation.

B1: The Ironic Truth – Original Mix: Profound and deeply emotional, The Ironic Truth is a delicious slice of warm goodness, flavoured with lush soundscapes, edgy chords and a deep grooving percussion. Enter the fathom world of the underground, which Simon seems to know quite well.

B2: Yellow Snow – Original Mix: The EP finishes with a beautiful masterpiece. On Yellow Snow, Simon really showcases his outstanding ability to captivate with quality Raw Deep House music. Combining dreamy keys and a smooth bass-line with tight grooving drums and percussion, Yellow Snow completes this stand-out EP in true underground style.

Mastered by Geoff Pesche @ Abbey Road Studios.

Released 27th January 2014 on limited 12″ vinyl, this release is definitely one not to miss.
