Coming on 12-3 - Pierre, Ruben Brundell and Leav

We've got some rather brilliant house music coming up, the three coming releases on Twelve-Three fit together nicelly.

French DJ and Neitee & Yeutta-member Pierre Grall drops his debut EP on our label next week, a certified cool three-tracker. Expect classic sounding house music with a clubby twist, big kicks and urging hats. We're super proud to have this guy on our rooster!

I'll follow up with my first release in the Cuts-series, I'm going vocal based and deep with that one - rhodes and bass.

To top it up, we'll release the third full EP of Leav (in about four weeks time) - It's called Glance and is without any doubt his best work to date. He's taking a dramatic turn towards the deeper side of things, perfecting his snare patterns, and we do appriciate the direction he's heading in!

Released today: J.Op - Itso EP

J.Op is back! Four fantastic deep house-tracks are waiting for you, as of now!

Buy Itso EP on iTunes


Malmö DJ and swell guy Jonathan Opasiak starts 2013 with his sophmore EP on 12-3, and boy o' boy are we glad so glad to have him back! You do remember right? Jonathan dropped the beautiful Watered Down Wahsed Out EP on 12-3 about a year ago, under the J.Op-alias. And the concept remains as we like it - brilliant deep house for the heart-body-mind.

Jonathan is one productive youngster. Making music for various labels under the name WooBanger, with partner in crime Johannes Herbert, as well as DJ:ing and throwing great parties in his home town, we feel real privileged that he has found the time to produce a cool follow up-release for us.

This in one of those EP:s where feeling is everything, a close-your-eyes-and-dance type of package. Three tracks to walk you down the lane of full fledged emmotions and deep basslines. Take your time listening to this one, and do it carefully.

Released today: 12-3 Cuts 001

Big day as we start our new Cuts-series today, Leav opening the catalogue!

Buy 12-3 Cuts 001 on iTunes!

Buy 12-3 Cuts 001 on Beatport!


Accessibility is the keyword when we happily launch our new series of releases under the Cuts-tag. Nothing changes really, it's still house and techno of the sweetest kind. But with these little caramels, we're keeping it simple and tasty.

Black and white, no more than two tracks on the release. Direct. Just because we love that pick-up-feeling as much as a chunky four track EP. You dig? Once every four weeks, we'll bring a new Cuts-release to you, to cop and play.

A nice little quick fix if anything. Your monthly pick-me-up from the 12-3 camp. We're cool like that. And who'd be better to open this series than the ever so talented Leav? This first release might be a bit different from what we usually do, a side track towards the more bass side of things. But it's fun and furious and we're not the ones to widen our horizons.

Jonas Isaksson keeps it glacier crispy with one bomb of an a-side. One old school-sounding, super heay stab-fest. Try Million is followed up by perfect wind-down-uplifter-techno-track Such Drive, the most excellent way to complete this package. A new side to Leav, sounding delicious as always.

As we enter our third year as a label, things get even more thrilling. And though we have a lot of new stuff going on, we pledge to never loose focus on what's important: defining the perfect groove. Let this EP be the proof of that ambition. Okay?

Best of 2012 part 1

2013 is here and it's time to sum up 2012. Instead of a lengthy post with all my favorite tracks and videos i thought it would be easier to make an impromptu mixtape instead. Of course I was deluding myself, since 2012 was an terrific year in music. This one could have kept on going for an hour or two more and a lot of fantastic music got left out. But hey, maybe this year I'll do a 5 hour mix.

// Kasp (Orphans)

Coming On 12-3 Recordings - Ruben Brundell, Leav and J.Op

Ok! So the new year is here, and we have loads of great things coming your way. Here's what you have to look forward to.

Our weekly podcasts will keep dropping each friday, starting this week and the whole year through. Packed with new and old stuff, it's our lil early weekend-starter. Catch up on the old ones at our Mixcloud.

This first month of the year will see three new releases on 12-3, one from me, the sophmore EP of Malmö talent Jonathan Opasiak, and the birth of our new series of releases under the Cuts-label. More on that soon.

Later down the line, we'll be throwing more of our beloved label parties, signing new intressting artists to the label and most of all, we'll keep you dancing.

Ok? Let's do this people!
