Laurent Garnier’s COD3 QR label is back with another vinyl-only release

Following June’s “[QR]V.172.TAM.24”, featuring tracks by Avision, DJ Deep and Deetron, Laurent Garnier’s COD3 QR label is back with another vinyl-only release. This varied 6-pack, coded “[QR]V.200.SPK.24” is comprised of exclusive tracks from members of the extended COD3 QR family: Skatman, Works Of Intent, Yann Lean, and Joaquim Plossu & Salem Focus, alongside Jules Wells‘ “Dreamer” (released digitally on the label in May) and Squal G‘s “Waiting 4U” (from April).

Skatman, the Berlin based, Tunisian born DJ, producer and label head of Cognitive Prophecy follows up his huge COD3 QR track “Tribute to a Dancefloor” with the deep, groovy and aptly titled “Transcending House”. He has already gained recognition for his approach to electronic music, bridging the gap between classic and contemporary with tracks on Innervisions and Correspondent, becoming one of the most intriguing and captivating artists.

Jules Wells who delivered the infectious “The Clap” on COD3 QR 016 is back with the retro House sound of “Dreamer”. Jules Wells is from Bordeaux, France. Strongly influenced by the Motor City, Jules has released on the likes of Submerge, Twilight 76, KMS, Planet E, Brique Rouge and Logos (Macedonia).

Works Of Intent, a core member of the UK South Asian collective DAYTIMERS and Emotional Weaponry label owner, has recently released an acclaimed guest mix for the legendary John Digweed’s Transitions radio show. Known for his ability to blend emotive storytelling with rhythmic precision, he follows up his “Richer Sound” album (released last year on the label) with the intricate and uncompromising “Subversive”.

Producer and manager of the Slates Records label, Squal G is a French artist who has been passionate about electronic music since the early ’90s. Initially, he practised his art as a DJ before turning to machines and computers as he progressed with production. Never sticking to a single style, instead, allowing inspiration to lead him, he nevertheless remains in the Techno spirit, as heard on “Waiting 4U”.

A multi-faceted composer and DJ, Yann Lean also works as a sound engineer for himself and other artists. Whether working as a duo with Madben and their side project Trunkline or as a solo artist, he has won the trust and support of prestigious labels such as KMS, Bedrock, Planet Rhythm, Skryptom and Materia, as well as COD3 QR who released “Hope” in 2020. Now he’s back with tribal drums on “To Get Close”.

French born, Mexican resident Joaquim Plossu has been making music as a producer, multi-instrumentalist and sound designer for the past 20 years with releases on COD3 QR, 31 Recordings, Fokuz, Repertoire, Deep Heads, Planet Rhythm and more. Both music composer and producer for TV and films, as well as Drum & Bass producer in his spare time, he teams up again with Leeds (UK) based Salem Focus (Fokuz Records / Soulvent / Galacy) for some energetic D&B on closing track “Cosmic”.
