Ross Couch – The Vinyl Years Vol.2 – Body Rhythm 054: Out Now

Posted on by rosscouch in News, Releases | Leave a comment

It’s time for the second volume in my ‘Vinyl Years’ series which aims to bring back some of my best tracks from when I was releasing music on other labels on 12″.

This edition kicks off with ‘The Deep End’ which originally came out on Dano’s Red Melon label, followed by ‘In The Night’ which was the lead track on an EP for Shaboom’s offshoot label Blacktrax.

Then comes ‘Across The World’ which was one of the most popular tracks of mine that came out during my time with Bargrooves, and finally there’s ‘Groove On’ which was released on Souldoubt’s Freaked label and has never been released digitally before.

Ross Couch – Restore My Soul EP – Body Rhythm 053: Out Now

Posted on by rosscouch in News, Releases | Leave a comment

Today marks the release of my latest EP entitled ‘Restore My Soul’ on my Body Rhythm label.

This one sees me head back into downtempo territory after the recent success of tracks like ‘Dusk Til Dawn’ (four months in the Beatport Chillout Top 100 peaking at No.12 and spending three months in the Official German Chillout Chart) and ‘Migration (Original Mix)’ (in the Beatport Chillout Top 100 for 2 1/2 months and Topped Juno’s Downtempo chart).

There’s three tracks to choose from on this one and rest assured there’s no ambient snoozers here!  Instead I’m mixing up elements of funk, jazz, breakbeat, soul and trip-hop that will hopefully tickle your fancy whether you can find a place for it in your next DJ set, in your car stereo or on your headphones.

Support for the new EP coming from forward thinkers like Shur-I-Kan, Jody Wisternoff, Richard Earnshaw and Vincent Kwok.

I’m having a lot of fun making these tracks and have built up a stockpile of them over the past few months so look out for more in the future and potentially an album too if all goes well!

Ross Couch – The Vinyl Years Vol.1 – Body Rhythm’s 50th Release!

Posted on by rosscouch in News, Releases | Leave a comment

Today’s a special day as it marks the 50th release on my Body Rhythm label, some five and a half years after the first release.

To mark the occasion I decided to do something I’ve been wanting to for a long time, and that’s to re-release some of the best and most fondly remembered tracks that I did earlier in my career when I was releasing on 12″ vinyl via other labels between 2001-2006.

So, ‘The Vinyl Years Vol.1’ is the first step in the process, putting out four tracks from back in the day, with at least another two or three volumes to come over the next 6-12 months.

Track Info / Previews:

For Vol.1 I picked out some real gems, including ‘Feel It‘ which was originally released on Offset Music in 2005 and was a sell-out on vinyl and appeared on compilations from Bargrooves and Cafe Del Mar, but has never been released digitally until now!

She Said‘ came out on 3am Recordings and despite being the B-Side on the release it became the one to have and people still mention it to me today as being one of their favorites. This one is appearing digitally on the Traxsource and Stompy sites for the first time.

The same goes for ‘In Love‘ which was my first release on Seamless Recordings and also appeared on a couple of different Bargrooves mix CD’s. This is the first time this one is being released digitally at Beatport and Stompy.

Finally, ‘I See You‘ was a release on the Bargrooves label and appeared on a number of different mix CD’s.  This will be available at the Stompy download store for the first time.
