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.

Ross Couch – The Cream EP – Body Rhythm 048

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

After a recent detour into the downtempo genre, my latest release, ‘The Cream EP’ heads back to more familiar four-to-the-floor deep house territory.

First up is ‘Can’t Live Without You’, a deep, atmospheric and emotive slice of deep house, while ‘The Cream’ slings the tempo a little lower to inject extra funk into this warm, uplifting number.

The release hits stores today and you can grab it from all the usual download stores:

Ross Couch – Detour EP – Body Rhythm 047 (Downtempo!)

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

My latest release on Body Rhythm marks a bit of a departure from my normal style as the ‘Detour EP’ is my first ever all-downtempo release.

The idea for this came after I wrote a downtempo track called ‘Angel’ earlier in the year which came out as the third track on the ‘Thinking About You’ release. It ended up doing better than expected, hitting No.20 on the Chill-Out chart on Beatport and staying in the top 40 for two months, while also being the fourth best selling downtempo track on Juno DL over an eight week period and getting to No.10 on the Traxsource lounge sales chart.

So I decided to take a break from the norm and write a full release in this style. it came pretty naturally to me as my stuff is often fairly mellow anyway, so taking the tempo down a few notches actually made a lot of sense.

Since then I’ve been having a lot of fun writing in this genre, I’ve actually found it quite inspiring and have had one of my most prouductive spells in recent years. I think part of the reason is that there’s less rules in the downtempo scene. You don’t have to worry so much about it working on the dancefloor, you can go as musical as you like, and there’s less fads where only one particular sound or style is selling well.

Still, it’s a bit of a gamble putting this release out on Body Rhythm since people have come to expect my usual deep house style on it, but I’m keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that people will like it.

Ross Couch – Body Rock EP – Body Rhythm 046: Out Now

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

I changed things up a little for my latest release on Body Rhythm which is available to buy in stores this week.

Without being too drastic a departure from the norm this one’s a touch more dancefloor orientated and dabbles with elements of breaks, progressive and 80’s electro wrapped up in the house style.

Also, stand-by as I’ve got more new music incoming in just a couple of weeks time as I branch out with a full EP in a more downtempo style that’s already getting a great response from DJ’s who’s got their hands on the promo.
