Give It Away

Outlook performing artist Planas takes us through his new live project and his current musical direction, as well as recent live performances and his work with Gentleman’s Dub Club.

Gentleman’s Dub Club –  ‘Give It Away’ (Planas remix)

Bonus Track (one of my favs of all time)

Finest Hour (Planas Remix) by Submotion Orchestra






An internet video has led me to an underground deep house producer from London.
“Since 1995 I have been on the scene and on the circuit from old skool garage to more recent sound of the underground house music. My first ever gig was when I was 14 years old playing infront of at least 200 people which at that age was a scary thought, then through out the garage days the crowd got larger and larger and the more the better to dj to. Since a young age i had a understanding of how to play music to a crowd and what the people want to hear and feel. I turned to producing in my early 20s and was making all types of genres and discovered that the sound of house music was for me. From there I started making house music and more and more people were hearing this sound that I was making and djs were also asking for tracks to play on radio stations such as kiss Fm,radio1 ,radio 1xtra and Rinse Fm. The more recent tracks to hit the scene are H.O.U.S.E ,Just Say No ,Bongoes and many many more. The sound has reached all over the country and overseas boosting bookings at events and shows with other great artists and djs in the scene.” – Carnao Beats

“As an adolescent, he dreamt of playing in a rock group, but also discovered Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Front 242 and Detroit techno. After having created his own studio and put together a few mixes on a Roland Compuphonic synthesiser (yes, that’s where the name comes from…), Maxime aka Compuphonic soon found himself behind the decks at Dirty Dancing nights in Brussels and recorded his first tracks for Dirty Dancing Recordings. In 2006, his reputation exploded on the dance floor with the groovy “Emotion”, produced in collaboration with Tiga and released on his label ‘Turbo’. In 2012 he released his highly anticipated “Sunset” Single on Get Physical – a piece of hedonistic house that is entirely characteristic of his style.

“We are the music that we create” once said Maxime Firket aka Compuphonic who is now another fine Belgian addition to the Exploited roster.

He brings his spontaneous, positive and accessible sound to the label. With this Radio Atlantis EP he continues his search for originality and emotion. The overall atmosphere is filled with the good kind of melancholia everyone likes to feel once in a while.

„Radio Atlantis”, the title track, starts with organ like sounds that are accompanied by a witty bassline, unique vocals and even some acid influenced pads

„Walking On The Edge”, with the same relaxed vibe as his megahit „Sunset” on Get Physical, is different from Radio Atlantis but at the same time also the perfect match. The storytelling vocal leads you through the track and its extraordinary simplicity.

To top off all of this you can expect some more music from Compuphonic on Exploited. We’re looking forward already, you hopefully too.”
