Newbody (Newbody Records)
Brooklyn-based Galcher Lustwerk became one of the most hotly tipped names in the underground dance music scene during the mid-2010s. The Cleveland-born producer’s tracks combine deep house beats with his own subtle vocals often reminiscent of a more laid-back variation on late-‘80s hip-house, creating a detached yet energetic take on the Midwest house sound. He is a member of the White Material collective, which was founded by cohorts DJ Richard and Young Male in 2012. Lustwerk’s first vinyl release, Tape 22, appeared on the label in 2013, but it was his 100% Galcher mix of unreleased material for podcast series Blowing Up the Workshop that put him on the map among house fans. EPs Nu Day and Remixes followed on Tsuba Records in 2014. He then founded Lustwerk Music in 2015, kicking off the label with his EPs Parlay and I Neva Seen. He also released a few digital EPs of “driving music” under the name Road Hog. In 2016, Lustwerk released Scenes (2012-2015), a double LP by Studio OST, his side project with fellow White Material member Alvin Aronson. Lustwerk’s debut full-length, Dark Bliss, appeared in 2017, and 200% Galcher followed in 2018.
Danielle is a DJ and Illustrator from London, currently based in Bristol. Over the last couple of years she has had the chance to play at some of the city’s best parties including Timedance, Livity Sound and Young Echo, as well as some of the world’s best clubs such as Corsica Studios, Sub Club and Griessmühle. Her sets feature an impressive range of genres from classic house to leftfield, electro, new-wave, EBM, UK techno and beyond. She draws from an informed selection of old school house cuts, whilst keeping up to date with the newest dance music as it’s released. This is thanks to a musical education that continues to expand with her 9 years (and counting) of work at the internationally-renowned Phonica Records. In addition to hosting regular NTS shows, she is one of the mentors at the increasingly popular Bristol-based DJ workshop ‘Mix Nights’.
