Release Date: 5th September
After completing his debut 12" for 100% Silk (which saw a release in Feb 2016) Hubert Clarke Jr spent most of 2015 focused on pushing the music of others, through Sydney's newest record store, Outer Time Inner Space.
Owning and being surrounded by a literal shop full of records provided motivation and inspiration but left little time for writing.
It was the incredible talent and passion of DJs and peers in the fertile house/techno scene at home in Sydney that proved to be an undeniably strong motivator. Dancing while local friends, Ben Fester and Andy Webb go ham b2b in support of Soichi Terada (a bill that included Hubert among other local talents) is a perfect example.
Wanting to capture and bottle the palpable energy and diversity of amazing nights like this in Sydney led him to write the tracks that make up this EP.
Taking cues from both Detroit and the UK, there's no set formula here, just a conscious effort to balance a love for sampling with an equally strong passion for musicality and live performance. Translating this through the MPC with the hopeful goal of keeping thighs warm in the disco...Or ears cosy on the train home.
Ishmael follows up his 2014 debut EP, WOLFEP026 with his latest offering on WOLF. Fans of his recent album, Sometime In Space will not be disappointed. The EP also features Soulphiction on remix duties, injecting Doldrums with some extra dancefloor pressure.
Leon Vynehall & A1B first started releasing collaborative music under Laszlo Dancehall in 2013.
After several highly praised releases, both artists have spent the last few years concentrating on their successful solo careers.
Late last year they found time to work in studio once more and we're extremely proud to be releasing the next chapter of Laszlo Dancehall on WOLF Music
Release Date: 12th December
With only 4 records behind him on various labels like Beat X Changers, Slime Recordings and S3A Records, French producer and DJ Fred Bwelle aka Neue Grafik has quickly rised as one of the most promising acts on the new French and European electronic scene (ask Laurent Garnier, he will confirm). Eclectic and versatile, Neue Grafik’s sound emerges from different roots: Paris (his home-town) and its music and cultural legacy, the ethnic sounds of Africa but it also goes from house, to jazz and hip-hop. Go check him playing live on his MPCs, you’ll witness what the man is all about.
In 2016, Neue Grafik launched his own label VERTV, released a new record (« Roy ») on Beat X Changers, composed 3 tracks on Wayne Snow’s debut album alongside Max Graef and Nu Guinea (release date: early 2017) and started a new live project called Raheem Experience with Mad Rey and LB aka Labat.
In December 2016, the Parisian producer is set to release « Ukiyo », his brand new record on UK-based label Wolf Music (Medlar, Laszlo Dancehall, Casino Times, Frits Wentink). It goes without saying that you should definitely keep on eye on this dude.

Seven years, who cares? No one really but it seemed like a good excuse to do something a bit different. We spoke to some the artists that have helped shape WOLF over the years and asked whether they would like to contribute to a double 7 inch release.
Excited by the unusual project Session Victim, Frits Wentink, Greymatter & Mr. Fries have delivered four original tracks with the format in mind. Hip Hop, Beat Down, Low Slung & Upfront House all contained across two records.
This release will be vinyl only.
