Gotta help each other out

The best way to get promotion is by helping each other out right? Well, my dear friend Garret is a fantastic DJ and producer based out of Saskatoon and he’s asked that I help him promote his DJ page on Facebook. So, after sending out a bunch of invites, (well, as many as I could cuz we know a lot of the same people), I’m coming to our lovely blog to help him out some more.

So, please go give j.a.DJ a like! Here’s his Soundcloud for your listening pleasure.

And I’d like to say welcome to you new likes! Keep promoting, we have a few things up our sleeves but you’ll have to stay tuned 😉

Uewpeap – Artist Profile

We’ve added on another chef into our kitchens here, some of you old school Winnipeg party people would have known him as a part of Phreshlyspun (alongside Desimal, Thor, and Phrawzty), but we here now know him as Uewpeap.

Richard Foreman (a.k.a. uewpeap) began writing electronic music in the early 90’s on an atari 1040st running “Digicomposer”, a 4-track DAW that created Mod Files. After quitting the metal band “H.C.E.”, he decided electronic music was his passion because he ctrae-headshotould write whatever he wanted without argument. Just before the turn of the millenium, he started performing under the name “Traemelo” with a group of incredible musicians that performed under the moniker of “phreshlyspun”. Soon after this, Richard faded into the seedy Winnipeg underground for many years, but continued to produce while lacking proper inspiration. In 2014, Fueled with a new resolve, he has returned to the world of Drum and Bass under the pseudonym “deadman” (uewpeap) to bring forth Old-School flavour with New-School Production Techniques.

Head over to his Soundcloud to hear some of his awesome tracks and mixes.

Our artists

The past week on Facebook has been great, we’re up to 98 likes in just over the week we’ve been up and running! Keep those likes coming, share our page  with friends, friends of friends and everyone you know. Our Instagram has also been doing fairly well and yes, I know there hasn’t been much movement other than us promoting. But before we know it, our first release date will be here and then things will be up in full swing.

Speaking of that release date, while I’m still waiting on bios from certain artists,  I can at least introduce you to the ones that we do have! (I know life and stuff gets busy, especially with the holidays coming up soon)

One third of the founders of Soup Factory Records.

Devious Lifeform’s favourite soup? He’s already mentioned what his favourite soup is in a previous post that can be found here.

Jeff Boychuk, aka DJ Whupass, hit the drum and bass scene in 2005.
After appearing on numerous radio programs over the years, he made appearances playing shows in Canada and the US alongside some of the worlds most well known and respected DJ’s such as Stunna, Mason, Martyn, Dieselboy, AK1200, Dara, Vaski, Mark Instinct and more.

Around 2011, he decided to try his hand at production, eventually seeing a release with his tune, The Human Centipede (as Max Wage) on Elektrik Beatz Recordings.

Jeff’s favourite soup? “Probably consume soup from whatever Chinese restaurant I happen to be ordering from.” He doesn’t have a favourite recipe, because he doesn’t cook. (and yes, he will admit that!)

Hopefully I can get the bios from ShortCircuit, Gumby & Smooths soon. We have lots more cooking in the kitchens, but you’ll have to stay tuned to find out what it is. 😉

Social Media

As we get this label off the ground, I’ve been setting up some social media sites for all you awesome people to follow. All because I helped out Steph figure something out on WordPress, I’m all of a sudden in charge of social media! (not that I’m complaining, it’s been fun so far and I can only imagine the adventure that will be had as we go forward)

Facebook – everything will be on here

Twitter – Links for releases, blog posts and other random nonsense from myself and our artists.

Soundcloud – You will find up coming releases here! (Stay tuned, first release is set for January, 2016)

Instagram – You’ll find pictures of our artists and more here (and soup lol) 😉

YouTube – The teaser trailer is up for our label! You’ll find more videos in the future here 🙂

We might get more social media stuff set up in the near future, gotta start with something though right?

Stay tuned in the next few weeks for another post that has our artist bios and more stuff that we’ll be rolling out in the near future.ry3erzj6qD2nY6lqSRKG_tfkYifJAxB_fEMqq3NJbZQ
