Ross Couch Ft Lazarusman – Wide Open Spaces – Body Rhythm 037

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

It’s time for my final EP of 2011 on Body Rhythm (though not the final release…there’s a compilation still to come!), and to end the year on a high we’ve got a collaboration with South African poet Lazarusman called ‘Wide Open Spaces’.

This one is available to buy on promo now exclusively from Beatport.com with the other stores to follow at the turn of the year.

This one came about thanks to perfect timing.  Lazarus contacted me to suggest we do something together just as I was working on a rough version of a track I’d titled ‘Wide Open Spaces’.  I sent it to him and he got to work on writing and performing the spoken word lyrics soon after.

Ross Couch: 10 Years Deep In The Dance Music Business

Posted on by rosscouch in News | Leave a comment

It turns out that today marks 10 years since my first official release!

I did have a few white label releases, etc before that, but the 12″ release of ‘Ross Couch – ‘The Rhythm‘ on Panther Records was really the first “proper” one.

Since then I’ve lost count of the number of tracks that have come out…probably over 200, including around 25-30 vinyl releases, more than 30 EP’s and counting on my Body Rhythm label, dozens of remixes and compilation CD appearances, and of course not forgetting one album.

There’s been a lot of ups and downs along the way…probably more of the latter than the former if I’m being totally honest – the music business can be a cruel mistress at times!

Despite all that I’ve somehow never become bored with making music and still love that feeling when a moment of inspiration strikes and a new track is born.

Thanks to everyone who has supported my music over the years, and here’s hoping there’s more than a few still to come.
