#YouAreNotAlone: With the current circumstances and the weird, turbulent times all over the globe, we asked our friends to choose a favourite album or a track for these isolated days, and share it with us along with a photo. An album a day keeps the bad vibes away. Stay safe.

Today we welcome our beloved Rohan Bell-Towers, the Melbourne-born, Berlin-based DJ and producer who records simply as Bell Towers. Let’s take a deep dive into an “Ocean Of Tenderness”, a track from Ashra’s 1977 LP “New Age Of Earth”, one of Bell Towers’ favourite records.

“‘Ocean Of Tenderness’ always puts me in a good place. Deep, pulsating and very smooth… “Breathe in, breathe out”… perfect for putting on when you get home from a rave, making out, or the soundtrack for blankly gazing out a window waiting for all this to end. Music for all seasons (and galaxies). I have owned this record for around 15 years and often find myself returning it.”

Rohan Bell-Towers, the Melbourne-born, Berlin-based DJ and producer who records simply as Bell Towers, is known for his eclectic tastes. Fresh off the release of his superb debut “Junior Mix” LP on Cascine & Public Possession, Bell Towers just dropped a 20-track collection called “Sexy Sex – Collected Edits 2013​-​20” full of quality edits. As he says: “The ‘Collected Edits – 2013-20′ conveniently combines previously vinyl-only releases, crowd fav DJ weapons, and some unheard bits n’ bobs rescued directly from the depths of my HD. Carefully sequenced for standalone listening – that is if you don’t mind repetitive music.”

The “Sexy Sex – Collected Edits 2013​-​20” is out now via Bell Towers’ Bandcamp page.

Next month, Melbourne-born, Berlin-based producer Bell Towers will finally drop his debut album, entitled “Junior Mix”. The ten-track record is “an ode to escaping into (and out of) the emotional pits of dance floors – about finding a place in one night’s fantasy”. Musically it’s all we’ve ever wanted from a Bell Towers production: ear worm melodies, sharp baselines, wild cross-references in between genres and at last sees him explore his abilities as a singer/songwriter to full extent. Before it drops, we’re treated to a stream of Bell Towers’ new single “Want You (Need You)”. Give it a spin above.

The “Junior Mix” LP arrives on March 6th via Cascine & Public Possession. Pre-order it here.

Bell Towers: “Juicy Blend” [Jaakko Eino Kalevi Remix]

TAGS:

In his eight years as an artist/producer — an output he self-describes as “file under 12”, intentionally laconic — Berlin-by-way-of-Melbourne Bell Towers has wriggled on various shades of house, 80s- influence pop and sample disco. No two of his 8 singles sound the same, but there’s a long-play LP on the way that’ll make these styles stick like your entry stamp to your wrist on a Monday morning.

Following up a stream of EPs for Public Possession, plus a host of remixes and collaborations, Bell Towers makes a welcome return with the first of a new batch of music, beginning with the irreverent single “Juicy Blend” – we’ve already featured the video here. The single is packaged as an EP featuring remixes by Bullion and Jaakko Eino Kalevi, plus an extended groove mix.

Today, we’re delighted to premiere a superb remix of the EPs title track from our beloved Finnish electronic musician Jaakko Eino Kalevi. Once again, Jaakko Eino Kalevi does an excellent job with his remix of “Juicy Blend, adding his signature touch. This is something special. Give it a spin above, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

The “Juicy Blen” EP drops on December 4th on Cascine and Public Possession, with the vinyl edition to follow on December 6th. Pre-order it here.
