The You You remixes are out! Hot and heavy!

Buy The You You Remixes EP on iTunes!


When duty calls, the core troopers step up - Jonas Isaksson, The Orphans and Pierre Grall provides a remix each for the springtime bass-heavy track You You, delivered by Ruben Brundell early May this year. The main author himself ending the EP with a low key VIP.

The orgininal gets a real twist, but keeps the focus on that thumping vibe through the Leav re-work, Uppsalas finest lets the bassline do the talking with this juggernaut of a track. Kasper Nowakowski and Andreas Lindman gives us a perfect contrast with their moogy techno-remix, a hands-to-the-roof jewel. Pierre Grall goes all out, pump, club, Maschine-toms with his udeniably heavy remix.

Four huge productions in one of the best remix ep:s we've dropped to date - enjoy!

Released: The 12-3 Recordings 2013 Summer Sampler

Summer is here! Time to catch up on what you missed!

Buy the 12-3 Recordings Summer Sampler on iTunes!


It's sampler time!

As june hits us in full effect - we've collected the very best, most outstanding tracks from the 12-3 spring catalogue in a big bag in box of Rosévin - this is the most delicious meal you'll get served this summer. We do feel that we're getting better by the hour, and this sampler bears witness - excellence all the way through.

All these tracks makes me incredibly proud, from the furosious Lake by Leav to the perfect vibes in the Neitee & Yeutta-beauty Ten, from the pounding groove in Le Blamage by The Orphans to the sweetnes in the deep gem Early Morning Melancholia by J.Op and J. Herbert. The raw house-vibes in Goes Back by Pierre Grall to the uplifting Bask-remix by Kapstaden. I'm so, so lucky to work with a group of talented people like this.

This first part of 2013 has been amazing for us as a label, and we'll no doubt keep keeping on for the rest of the year. So with this sampler, catch up on what you missed, and enjoy a bunch of rather brilliant house tracks!

Boys Noize – Starwin

I wasn't crazy about the last Boys Noize album. Or, well... I thought it was outright boring to be frank. But he's back in good form on his forthcoming Ep. "Go Hard" is balls to the wall jumpstyle techno, yeah maybe not my favourite genre. But B-side "Starwin" is something else entirely. Funky, jumpy with a great melodic sample.

Leav - A Great Day EP (Free DL)

Super productive homie Leav dropped a free (yes - freeee!) EP on his Soundcloud yesterday. Some quality tunes in there, where Wend is my jam, the stand out-track. Needs to be checked out!

Released: Ruben Brundell - I Know You / Nonstop

Half time in the first year of our Cuts-series - two quality house tracks out for your enjoyment!

Buy 12-3 Cuts 006 on iTunes!


The I Know You / Nonstop EP will perfectly tie together the first six months of Cuts-releases, the experiment with monthly two-track packages has been great fun releasing - something we'll continue to do, rest assured.

And so, two straight forward house productions will define the sixth chapter of the series. Ruben Brundell provides that deep ambiance, a midnight-groove and a peak time-production for those thirsty crates of yours - a classic lead and some rather cinematic chords defines this release.

The Cuts-series keeps it clean - straight up house music ready to be played.
