Following the debut artist album by Marco Bailey, Guy J’s second artist album and releases from label owner John Digweed himself (in the form of the “Structures” and “Bedrock 12” mix compilations), Bedrock now proudly presents the debut artist album from rising Greek star Stelios Vassiloudis, titled “It Is What It Is”.
Presented over two discs, the album commences with a beautiful cinematic soundscape on CD1, whereas CD2 allows Stelios to showcase his club sound, which develops from laidback deep house grooves right through to a more intense techier acidic vibe. With all the tracks blended and mixed together into a continuous play format to create the optimum listening experience, this is a fantastic release showcasing top quality, forward-thinking music and once again showing why Bedrock is one of the leading labels in the global electronic scene.
You may have already heard Stelios on Bedrock recently in his Wiretappeur guise (his collaboration with Florian Kruse and Nils Nurnberg) with the much-loved “Everybody Loves Ice Cream EP” whose deep house vibes and warm sounds are firm favourites of many acclaimed DJ's. Now, it’s time for him to shine in his own right.
The album is rich with the many vocal talents it hosts, with glorious contributions from Darren Murray (“I Burn Like”), Astrid Suryanto (“Walk Away” and “Feed”), Anna Maria X (“Tie Me Up” and “Isolation”) and Tomomi Ukomori (“Green In Blue”), all of which are exceptional in their own distinctive styles.
