ELK WAX 001 // AVAILABLE NOW

elkwax-001-preview

The time has come. ELK WAX 001 is here. We’ve waited a long time to do this, and are very excited to offer you some wax and send them out to your decks! Artwork by Accent Creative.

Track listing:

A: EshOne – Ups & Downs VIP
AA: EshOne – Flight VIP

Orders can be placed below.

Unfortunately, international shipping is insanely expensive. I was mis-quoted for UK shipping and it ended up being $14.90US per record! Almost double what I was told. So that sucks. Also filling out customs forms for over 70 records was a terrible time. So I’m sorry to have to raise the prices a bit, but after sending out all of the pre-orders, I have a definite idea of shipping costs.

Please ensure that your shipping address is correct via PayPal upon checkout.

ELK WAX 001 10″ Vinyl Pre-order – USA Shipping: $16
ELK WAX 001 10″ Vinyl Pre-order – International Shipping: $28

Skriptah – Movement 47 EP

This EP has been a long time in the making. Well… Sort of. I think we started the process about a year ago. I knew it was meant to be when I got this email from Skriptah back in April… Here’s a direct quote: “Sorry i been so slow at this shit man, hit me up or text me or some shit at 415-xxx-xxxx. I been getting sucked way too much into video games lately to be honest, but I want to get back out there djing and playing tunes and stuff.”

Most people I meet who are [still] interested in this music are pretty green, enthusiastic, and will do anything to get a release or some sort of validation. Skriptah just makes badass tunes and doesn’t give a fuck. I fully appreciate that. One listen to any of these tracks and you’ll find a level of dynamic range, sound design, and just straight up motion that a lot of kids these days will never figure out.

Anyway, I’ve been playing these tracks across the country for a long while now, and I can give you first hand reassurance that these bang hard. Go for it.

- EshOne


Full EP for only 3 bucks.

Elk Breaks Vol. 1

The best part about running this label, and not dealing with distribution and all that other stuff is being able to wake up and think, “Today is an Elk Breaks kinda day.” This is precisely what happened this morning, and today, I bring you Elk Breaks Vol. 1. These are four 130bpm tracks which incorporate some of my favorite influences, from dnb, garage, dubstep, house, etc.

Here are the previews:

As always, in your choice of WAV or 320kbps MP3

EshOne – Ups & Downs EP

I’m not even going to write this summary in any other voice than my own. None of the hype, none of the promo… I just thought over the last couple days that this is the time to put out some good dubstep. This is a collection of four tracks that I’ve had a lot of fun playing across the country in the past year or two. All of them require a large sound system. The majority of these tracks were said to be headed to vinyl only… Well, I’ve decided to stick to my guns, and press vinyl only using 100% of the proceeds from Elk Beats digital sales. This means: not dumping a shit load of money into pressing wax because a few people think it would be cool. If you’d love to see Elk Beats vinyl in the future, please support this, and all of our other releases. Once the Elk Beats PayPal account can afford a small run 10″ pressing, we will do it, and it will be awesome. No bullshit. It may seem surprising that we’re not there yet, but think about how often you hear some of these tunes at the club? Not very often. They are special. Chances are, if you’re hearing them, the DJ knows me or one of the artists personally. These are not your lame “bass music” anthems being played by overrated DJs… These are weird. So get weird with us.

This specific EP is available in WAV format (not MP3), because quality music should be played at a quality quality level.

Big Up Mag + Dataset Present: EshOne – Moon Gravity EP

EshOne slows the pace a notch for this three track EP via Big Up Magazine and Dataset. The release comes complete with creepy pads, house-ish drums, funky bass, and full dance floor stirring capability. Listen & download here:

Elk Beats 011 // Available Now

EshOne rolls back the noise a few notches and brings forth two steppy tunes with drone-like, melancholy leads and huge, hard hitting sub bass lines. 1997 travels through space smoothly with broken its piano chords and machine like percussion, creating a lazy yet driving, head nodding vibe. Plastic Trucks has an incredibly swung out drum beat, layered over gigantic subs, only to lead you into the hypnotic beeps that give this beast of a tune the authority to be played at any time of night. Assuming that these tunes are being played on a proper sound system, EshOne has crafted one hell of a bassbin testing single that’s sure to please the midrange-loathing ears of dubstep purists across the land.


Both tracks in your choice of 320 MP3 or WAV format for only 2 bucks.

Don Valdez – Space Grains EP


-> CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE SPACE GRAINS EP


(Right Click + Save As)

Don Valdez takes us to the tech side of the moomb with this new [and slightly creepy] three track EP. What starts off as some innocent beeping and huge sub-reinforced kicks in “La Puerta,” is immediately followed by an x-rated, filthy, breathing, moaning stomper, “Pron Tax.” The EP rounds off nicely with the title track, “Space Grains,” a solid groove of a tech track that defines this branch of sound that the Don is reaching for.

Don Valdez – “Burqueño EP” – AVAILABLE NOW

The name Don Valdez is fresh to the ears of EDM lovers since his debut mix appeared in late December of 2011 on TheMixster.com, however, Valdez himself is no newcomer to the world of Latin electronic music. Also known as EshOne, Don Valdez has been slicing up Latin sounds and creating his own brand of sound, Tijuana Bass, since 2009. Originally played in acetate dubplate format, the Tijuana Bass tracks were thrown into his 140bpm dubstep sets to liven up the dancefloor, and make his sound more “babe-friendly.” Valdez has seen much success with this brand of sound and recently acquired a taste for mid-tempo production, thus creating the Don Valdez pseudo to focus on multiple tempo, Latin flavored DJ sets.

Valdez’ debut release on Rot10 Musik saw remixes from some of the Moombahton scene’s heavy hitters, Jon Kwest, Cam Jus, Big Makk, Aylen, and Obeyah. Since then he has created dozens of tracks, from techno and tech-house inspired beats, to chunky, Latin flavored cumbia-esque rhythms – some featured on compilations such as:

–> Rot10 Musik Invades Miami Vol. 2
–> Jon Kwest Presents: Winter of Moombahton 2012 (Featured in DJ MAG)
–> Walmer Convenience Presents: The New Wave 3

Named for the town Valdez grew up in, Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Burqueño EP features 7 original tracks, 5 of which are mid-tempo, and 2 are at 140bpm, “Tijuana Bass.” Tracklisting is as follows:

Elk Beats 006 :: AxH “Gather Souls EP”

Elk Beats has added East Coast selector and button pusher AxH to the herd. To thank all of you for your support thus far, here is a FREE EshOne remix.

The EP features two original tracks from AxH: “Gather Souls” is a dark, moody stomper. As the tune progresses, Axh throws in some extra snares to pick up the skank pace nicely. “Mudded” is a beefy roller, lots of percussive rolls and a hugely present sub bass make this track a hard one to miss.

As always, your choice of 320 MP3 or WAV format for only 2 bucks.

Elk Beats 005 :: EshOne – “Allergies” / “Reflective Wallpaper”

Allergies” is a ruuuuude tune, produced by EshOne on an especially dark and painful day during this past allergy season: Featuring super swung hats and a wonky bassline, sprinkled with pet dander.

Reflective Wallpaper” is a more sexual, grimy roller which boasts perhaps the most prominent woodblock hits of 2012.

ELK004 :: Misk – “The Club Song” :: EshOne – “Theme Pouch”

It’s been a while since we have put out some tunes, but we’ve been making so many that we haven’t even had the time to! We decided to put these two tracks out as a single, Misk’s tune, “The Club Song,” is a 140 bpm juke/footwork influenced club thrasher. My track, “Theme Pouch,” is a very weird, metallic roller with a huge sub bass to push yourself around with in the club. Let us know if you’re playing the tunes, we’ll blog you up!

ELK002 :: EshOne – Mud Brick :: Misk – They Listen

 

Our second release. Moodier, more detailed soundscapes… They Listen is packed with Misk’s signature spectral morphing sound designs, and rolls through its groove deeply. Machine sounds are not just for over the top bangers – this one bring hope for the future, and sheds a dark light on the listener with it’s growling basslines. Mud Brick is one of the darkest and most murky tunes to come from EshOne. This one is 100% eyes down, and that’s about all we’ll write about it.

With this model, we will be able to improve the artistic detail and overall presentation of our vinyl or other physical releases more and more as we grow. In other words, fuck distro, we don’t know why they charge so much and do so little. That being said, please help us by spreading the word as we grow. It will inevitably come back to you.
