The 20th release on Cosmic Elements is an 80s inspired track from Tom Conrad featuring Andy Compton on guitar duties.

Lush chords, atmospheric pads, dreamy keys, solid beats and synth bass are layered with a superb guitar solo from Andy Compton (The Rurals) and take you back to the nostalgic 1980s, arguably the finest era for music overall. This track has summer written all over it.

Tom and Andy combine once again after their ‘Textures EP’ release in 2020, the remixes of which will be released within the next month or so.

The 19th release on Cosmic Elements is a Thylacinus rework of Tom Conrad & Mr V’s ‘Sign Of The Times’, which was originally released on Adaptation Music.

Thylacinus pulls out all the stops to rework ‘Sign Of The Times’ into a summery Cafe Del Mar track, with a fusion of jazz, old school hip hop, a dub reggae style bass line and dreamy, atmospheric keys and pads. Originally released as a house track almost a decade ago with several versions, ‘Sign Of The Times’ contains a message that is still as relevant today as it was then.

A very familiar name on the scene, Mr V started out with Masters At Work and has gone on to become a household name as a hip house vocalist, producer and DJ, gracing the likes of Defected, Strictly Rhythm, Vega Records, Dessous and numerous others.

Thylacinus has released several EPs on Cosmic Elements already and has singles alongside Da Funksta on the TOSNC label, with a vinyl album release due in August, also alongside Da Funksta.

CHEMARS (GINKGO MUSIC / HENRY STREET)

The 116th release on Adaptation Music sees the combination of two of the label’s top in-house artists, Tom Conrad & Yan Gordo who deliver a fusion of deep house, deep tech, progressive house and the Balearic sound in the form of ‘Balearic Skies’ which is remixed by the brilliant Forteba, who we are very proud to finally have on the label.

One of Tom’s favourite producers of the last decade, Forteba, produces a sublime atmospheric and hypnotic deep house rework in his signature style with a classy bass line which builds throughout and leaves you wanting more. Certainly not one to miss! Tom & Yan’s original version is a sophisticated peak time multi layered fusion of atmospheric pads, chords, bass lines with a cross genre appeal from anyone into deep house, progressive house, deep tech and believe it or not both mixes would also work in a laidback Cafe Del Mar-esque setting.

Hungarian producer Forteba has been producing a mix of dreamy and driving German inspired deep house music since his late teenage years and has been a mainstay on the likes of the mighty Plastic City and numerous other labels, whilst also recording under various other aliases in different genres in his own right and alongside his close producer friends.

JOAN RIBAS (VARIOUS, IBIZA / DUTCHIE MUSIC)

Cosmic Elements’ 15th release is a big one, a summery balearic lounge/chill EP from Tom Conrad alongside the brilliant Andy Compton (The Rurals) with ‘Textures EP’.

First up is the lush fusion of summery sounds that make up ‘Okinawa’, an ode the beauty of Okinawa prefecture Japan. Andy Compton (The Rurals) is on lead guitar here as he is on the next track ‘Phoenix’, a broken beat, balearic soulful jam with jazzy guitar and a smooth funky bassline. For the closing track, Tom decided to make a track that would fit with observing stars in the night sky and believe it or not, it’s called ‘Stargazer’. Soft arpeggiated rhythms, smooth pads, uplifting keys and ethereal but subtle bell sounds (to represent glowing) are the order of the day, so you tell us – is it a star gazing record?

Adaptation Music’s Tom Conrad returns to the label with the long awaited ‘Frankie’s Song’ following on from his last successful outing, ‘New York EP’ earlier in the year.

The song title is an ode to one of Tom’s biggest musical influences Frankie Knuckles, whose versatility and warmth of sound throughout his productions inspired this track. Tried and tested at numerous venues over the last year, ‘Frankie’s Song’ is a melodic beauty which comprises lush chords, infectious leads and a sound somewhere between New York and Ibiza.

Watch out for several more EPs and singles over the coming months from Tom on Adaptation Music and several other labels as he continues to establish himself with his consistency and progression within the realms of deep and jackin underground house music.
