UONE & WESTERN – THE LONE WRANGLERS LP

Catalogue No: BNP033
Label: Beat & Path
Format: Digital/ Vinyl
Release date:  Exclusive Beatport & Spotify – October 16th
Worldwide all platforms: October 30th

We are all the product of our influences. This is a mantra Uone and Western honours on their debut full length ‘The Lone Wranglers’. It sounds like no other, and flourishes of psychedelia and tribal deep house conceals a futuristic interpretation on the classic American frontier. Every instrument on the ten track release has been recorded live, and weaved into the fabric of many songs are spoken samples taken from an impressive collection of mediums.

Uone is veteran of a decade’s worth of international club and festival performances, and over the last 5 years the Australian has been honing his studio skills with impressive precision. Western AKA Nick West is an extremely accomplished music professional servicing high profile clients in TV, movies and advertising from his Sydney-based Smith & Western studio. His talents are illuminated throughout with live vintage-sounding keys, introspective guitar recordings and other organic instrumentation.

 

Track opener ‘Let Red Go’ is one of three interludes. It is an ambient teaser into their creative world, an neat synopsis of what’s laying ahead featuring clips of everything which makes the album special: Big drums, engaging melodies ,and spaghetti western guitars and samples. Featuring the intimate vocals of guest vocalist Briony Taylor-Brooks, ‘Kaos of Time’ is an alluring deep house track complete with guitar licks and soft production touches.

The deep house vibe is continued on ‘Culture of Knights’, this time a soothing acoustic guitar builds a gentle atmosphere carried by shakers and wood block instruments.

Big tribal drums preface the soft groove and urgent message of title track ‘The Lone Wranglers’, a thoughtful spoken word sample is underpinned by chanting vocals and melodic flourishes.

‘Cotton Clouds’ is the second interlude and acts as a halfway point bookmark, an ambient take on Uone & Westerns popular 2017 track ‘Cotton Picker’ (released on Uone’s Beat & Path records).

The melancholic arpeggiator of ‘Odysee 9000’ is therapeutic and introspective all at once, a hypnotic rhythm ensuring maximum captivation. ‘The Tale of Seven Samurai’ is the most energetic cut so far: Delicate FX and musical flourishes appear and disappear, and trainspotters would appreciate the creative use of numerous samples

 

The the third and final interlude is ‘Forest Walker’ which features a jingle from Nick’s 7 year old daughter wrote, her first composition after learning to play the piano, alongside field recordings form Uone.

 

The dance floor call-to-arms of ‘Silky Moments’ features beautiful bell-like tones which give way to harmonica, swelling chords and airy vocals. Finally,  ’The Last Showdown’, takes it home via big drums, sexy plucked guitars, hushed vocal samples, uplifting melodic phrasings and, above all, oodles of vibe.

UONE & WESTERN - THE TALE OF THE SEVEN SAMURAI

Release date: 26.06.2020

 

A – Uone & Western – Tale of the Seven Samurai
B – Uone & Western – The of the Seven Samurai (D-nox & Beckers Remix)

The Galactic Federation’s decree to apprehend the martial lawbreakers Uone & Western has led to the lockdown of the entire East quadrant. The reasons are clear: the duo’s forthcoming LP titled The Lone Wranglers’, rumoured for release in one Earth month. Word on the interstellar highway is that the LP is an interpretation on the classic American frontier by way of psychedelic flourishes, deep tribal house and sublimated brain wave messaging. These are dangerous yet exciting times.

Before that release, Uone & Western has one more ace up their sleeve with the knee-slapping, high-priority, shogun vibes of ‘The Tale of the Seven Samurai’. They have scoured the northern prairies of E-ropa to find help in D-nox & Beckers, a couple of seasoned buckaroos known for their bacchanalian ways.


‘The Tale of Seven Samurai’ is the most explosive release so far and takes inspiration from the prophetic Akira Kurosawa myth found on Earth. Like the cycles of life, FX and musical flourishes appear and disappear, and numerous samples pack out an entertaining yet rousing rendition. If your dancefloor needs defending, you have come to the right place.


Logged deep within the information portals formerly inhabited by the archaic 5G networks are the names of D-nox & Beckers. Just mentioning their deadly names will activate warnings and tip-off local authorities. Be safe but don’t fret; they confidently turned ‘The Tale of Seven Samurai’ into a profound reason to stand up and stand your ground. Melodic stabs, smooth cowboy guitar and profoundly hopeful strings all soar together like the Aurora Borealis.

UONE & WESTERN – THE LONE WRANGLER EP

Release date: 12.06.2020

A – Uone & Western – The Lone Wrangler (Original Mix)
B – Uone & Western – The Lone Wrangler (Out Of Sorts Gunslinger Mix)

All galactic authorities are on high alert after the announcement that Uone and Western will release their debut declaration titled ‘Lone Wranglers’. They say it’s been behind the multiple encodings of dimension-hopping involving American Western broadcasts. If this is true, the Frontier will deviate into a new psychedelic realm, and the battle for our subconscious will begin.

The latest transmission is the title track it’s all named after, ‘Lone Wrangler’. That is a bold statement. Of course, it spells trouble, and the Council has sent an urgent Mind-Link to the Zealand Gun Slinger battalion for assistance. What they did next shocked everyone: They activated Out of Sorts.

Featuring Tonto, the Lone Ranger’s mythical right-hand man, ‘Lone Wrangler’ is an astute prophecy for modern times. For Uone and Western, he embodies a clear message: choosing compassion and forgiveness over vengeance. Or as they say on Earth, right over wrong. The feeling is contemplative and the rhythm is radiosensitive. They have managed to capture the American myth and imbue it all over this broadcast. It points towards the pending release of a majestic manifesto. Be warned: It’s only meant for those who can handle the truth.

Riding high on their legendary tales of gun slinging in the Silver Fern canyons, who could’ve predicted the involvement of Out of Sorts? But here we are. Their Gunslinger remix of ‘Lone Wrangler’ is intense. They imprint an authoritative gel all over the root material, a minor acid adhesive that will suck any heretic straight into its force field. It’s a deadly and fierce workout that accentuates why the Powers are taking Uone and Western’s debut very seriously.

UONE & WESTERN – LAST SHOWDOWN EP

Release date: 29.05.2020

A – Uone & Western – Last Showdown (Original Mix)
B – Uone & Western – Last Showdown (Desert Dwellers Mix)

For lone rangers like Beat & Path label boss Uone and the bounty hunter called Western, the answer is clear: staying on the cosmic trail is the way of the cowboy. For the last 12 months these neon outlaws tamed an iron asteroid, mining deep for the elements that form their debut LP ‘The Lone Wranglers’. It has a big game, a fusion of galactic electronic music rolled in the steampunk spirit of the American frontier.

With only a few weeks until the ten track epic goes supernova, Uone & Western starts the countdown via three singles taken from the LP. And we boost straight into hyperdrive via ‘Last Showdown’; an elevating experience complete with a remix from fellow psychonauts, Desert Dwellers.

The ‘Last Showdown’ is thick with vocal smoke, harmonica whisps and swashes of slide guitar, it’s a blueprint on how to become the hero in your own story. It was sourced after many space battles and exactly 100 hours of dimension surfing. It feels fluid and fearless, and in multiverse number KH-1078Q1 considered a cure for the future blues. Listen only if you are an experienced Level 10.

The Desert Dwellers is wanted by every border patrol from Melbourne to Mars. Their brand of anti-gravity melodies, confidant guitars and rattlesnake shakers are worth a lot on the black market. But the rumours are true, and this is beyond mere alien oil. It contains a healing potential which is very real. Be careful: this deeply illegal remix will feature on every Most Wanted list across the seven quadrants

WINTER PATHWAYS COMPILATION

“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset” – Blackfoot

Through the mist and fog, from the highest peaks, to the lowest troughs, winter brings a chill across the depths of the Tasman. Amidst the icey planes, the people look for warmth. And it is the fire of music that warms a warriors heart. Just as some start to lose hope, a vibrational transformation occurs. A cosmic collaboration. Across the astral, through dimensions up and down, it’s emergence reverberates through the cosmos. Some call them Dusty Troopers. Others call them Cowboys from another time, occupying a place outside of our continuum. But their name is not important, for their waves are where their magic lies.

Warm your heart by our fire friend, for you have travelled far and wide. We did not come here to cry, but to dance, enlivened by the richness of the fruits we call life. We thank you for joining us on this journey, and hope it brings you what your heart desires most. We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.

LIQUID BLOOM & PORANGUÍ - PEYOTE CANYON (UONE PHANTOM WHISTLER MIX)

Check out this beautiful EP from

Liquid Bloom & Poranguí titled ‘Peyote Canyon’.

I was lucky enough to be asked to make a remix and it was the first time in my life that I had produced a track over 10minutes in duration. I will always hold this track close to my spirit because it was the first track produced after the world had entered into COVID-19 and essentially changed my lifestyle forever. The process of writing this track opened up my creative spirit again and urged me to continue on being an artist and pushing the psychedelic culture that we love.

“Casting the mystery and romance of the western borderlands through a visionary lens, Liquid Bloom and Poranguí’s flowing deep house tale marries panoramic acoustics with steadfast electronic beats to paint a mesmeric and uplifting portrait of the electro-mystical frontier.”

UONE - FLOW SESSION 008

This year, the unforgettable 2020, I’m celebrating 20 years of Djing. Its been an incredible journey filled with loads of art, love and positive energy. The COVID-19 outbreak opened up an opportunity to reset and reflect on where it all started. Reflecting on my early roots and a time I was young, free, completely transfixed with the art of DJing and the music it embodies. For over 2 decades now, I’ve managed to develop an ear for all sounds and discovered that music has no borders nor boundaries. It’s an audible escape, that can transpose you to your chosen oasis, albeit within one’s own mind.

For this mix, I tried to create a psychedelic journey into sounds that have influenced me as an artist and best represent the community amongst us. My message through this is for us to remember that everything flows and all is connected, we are but one vibration, floating through space.

Thank you to Corr and Jai for the invitation and for the great work you are doing with the Flow platform for the community and the greater world.

Enjoy the music space cowboys & cosmic girls

UONE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS LOCK DOWN LIVE STREAM FUNDRAISER

Australian artist Uone will entertain us with a very special DJ set to encourage people to stay at home and equally as important, to raise awareness for those in our community who are battling multiple sclerosis (MS). Uone himself has had this immune-mediated disorder for over 10 years now. 

The above-mentioned performance was filmed in a gorgeous forest on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia.  Uone over the last five years has been raising funds and contributing to educating the general public of this chronic neurological disease. Until now, Uone has never revealed his condition previously and is producing a documentary in partnership with MS Australia, highlighting the positive changes he’s made, to continue following his dreams. 

Through this video, Uone is sending a message of positivity to the world, that even in these troubled times, anything is possible if you believe in yourself and work hard enough. Never ever allow life or circumstances to get in the way of your dreams.

Jamie Woon - Shoulda (Uone 2020 Bootleg) FREE DOWNLOAD

Uone’s bootleg of Jamie Woon’s – ‘Shoulda’ is very dear to his heart. For Uone, his bootleg signifies the constant struggle of falling in and out of love with your own music and recognising that you cannot rush or force anything in life. Everything happens at the exact moment that its suppose to, so it’s important to keep your head down, smile and be positive. The world needs as much love & positivity as ever amidst the current COVID-19 Outbreak.

UONE live – CHI WOW WAH TOWN 2019

As the sun finished setting on Saturday evening it was finally time for the boss of CHI WOW WAH TOWN to take the musical reins. Thank you to all the amazing crew, volunteers & punters for making it such a special weekend of celebrating love, positivity & freedom.

UONE live – Rhythm & Alps 2019

In preparation for this I wanted to deliver a message at the start of my set to you the people that our world is in grave danger and only you the people have the powered to request & make change. So I include a small extract of Greta Thunberg’s speech to the UN to encourage everyone to spread the message.

This set is a showcase all my favourite tracks from the last 10 years, some old some new, many you have probably heard before, please enjoy the journey and feedback is always welcome.

Lots of love and positivity to you where ever you are on the planet.
Special thanks to all the wonderful crew and people at Rhythm & Alps.

UONE – ‘SANDS OF TIME feat. SLEEPING GENIE (PART 2)

www.balancemusic.com.au


Release date: 26/07/2019


Melbourne-based DJ/producer Uone announced himself as one to watch with his incredible 2018 Balance Presents release, a sprawling 21 track epic mixed to perfection. Every track featured Uone’s production touch in the form of originals, remixes and collaborations, and the next single from the 2CD release is a five-track remix package of a Uone original, the beguiling ‘Sands of Time’ featuring Sleeping Genie on vocals.

On the stripped back Dub mix the original’s bass is given more air to breathe as Uone turns the groove-level to 11. The judicious use of the vocal adds to the overall mystery, and The Doors-like Rhodes melody and other mystic sounds disappear as quickly as they appear, making for a very thrilling listen. This will enhance the trance on any dance floor.

It takes creative use of sound to evoke confusion about your current state, but on the Ambient mix, Uone achieves this effortlessly. Are you sober? Are you high? If you listen to this mix and close your eyes, it would be hard to differentiate: velvet sounds, plucked guitar samples and not-quite-right synths all swirl together for an experience that feels like you’re preparing to journey into the cosmos.

BIOGRAPHY

For a galactic gambler like Uone, music and art is an important language designed to cross social and cultural boundaries. He is the global voice of a cosmic deep sound that has seen him transform dance floors from the USA’s Burning Man to the UK’s Glastonbury. In his native Australia, he backs that up with his status as a multi-faceted artist and dedicated industry leader behind various projects geared towards strengthening the scene.
 
As Director of Vision Hound, he helms a forward-thinking artist and touring agency championing local (and global) dance music culture. For proof, look no further than Chi Wow Wah Town, an exciting, almost spiritual arts and music weekender born from his creative mind. Part music, part atmosphere, part Alice in Wonderland, his curation is responsible for the event’s reputation as a fertile breeding ground for local arts and musical talent to launch from.
 
Nowhere is his push for freedom of expression through music and art more evident than his studio pursuits and his Beat & Path Recordings. There he operates as a talent finder and shamanic songwriter, a musical altruist giving a guiding hand to up-and-coming talent. It’s an all encompassing holistic system designed to teach and help his family of artists to find their next level.

On the dancefloor is where it all comes together, a proficient DJ who holds a watertight space sermonising music’s healing powers to an international audience. From western-influenced deep house to organic tribal rhythms brushed with psychedelia, his DJ sets oscillate from subtly spiritual to super sexual. As a producer he has released music on international imprints Katermukke, Still Vor Talent & Sol Selects, imbuing his productions with a humanist arc celebrating our connected spirituality. Make no mistake, this theme is resonating. His 2CD release in 2018 for global powerhouse label Balance was a unique vision reaching number one on global dance music barometer Beatport’s Deep house charts.

The next project on his sunset-red horizon (October 2020) is a full-length debut under his new moniker The Lone Wranglers. It’s an epic ten-track release re-synthesising spaghetti Westerns, psychedelia, pulp fiction and more into a pastoral package for his own Beat & Path label. As evident by the three well-received singles, promotions are well underway and feedback is showing much promise. This will only be enhanced by a live DJ stream from the mystical Cactus Country featuring on national Australian TV Broadcaster Channel 10. Also scheduled for release later this year (2020) is his Magician on Duty EP, which comes complete with a stunning Dandara remix.
 
For Uone music taps into a unique place where inner truth can be explored without judgement. It’s a tool to relieve societal pressure and to connect with the future through nurturing talent. Embrace your centre and enjoy in the celestial union with Uone.
