It is with great pride that we can announce the inclusion of two new projects to the One Foot Groove stable: Bruce & Solar Axis - the DJ and Production projects of one South African called Bruce Abrahamse - have been regular names in the South African party scene for some time.
We're happy to have this highly-experienced trance devotee join the label - we've always been fans of the man's work and we're bursting with pride that we can now call him "colleague".
A-MUSH & ANESTETIC TO PLAY “MASQUED BALL”
We're very excited about the fact that A-MUSH will be travelling to South Africa, for the first time, to play at the annual "Masqued Ball" event, hosted by stalwart promoters, Alien Safari.

ONE FOOT GROOVE HOLD INTERNAL VOTE
Just for a bit of fun, One Foot Groove recently held an internal vote amongst ourselves to try to choose which of our producers and DJs had the best 2012, and we decided that we would reward the winner of each category with a release in the coming months.
So, we're proud to announce that the winner in the Producing Section is none other than Manuel Trindade - who everyone probably knows better as D_Maniac. His sophomore album - "Obsessions 2" - is due for release later this year - we'll keep you posted.
In the DJing section of the vote, the prize was taken by Anestetic, who will get to working on a compilation just as soon as he gets a bit of a break from touring, doing what he does best.
Congratulations to the both of them, we all look forward to seeing what they have in store for us over the next year.

Phase 2 Review
It has been five years since the debut album by Noiseanomalie was released and at last I have my hands on his latest.
It is a pity that the album consists only of six tracks, that aside this is an album of musical delight. Phase 2 starts off with a bang, as I experienced by the sudden start of "Debatable Legality". This track is slow, brooding and a good way to start a set and get those feet moving. "Think Again" picks up the beat radically and gave me that rushing, swirling and twirling feeling - lovely. The crunchy sound, deep bass and comical "whoops" of "Sound of da Police" put a smile on my face had me reaching for my party shoes. "Phase 2" contains what sounds like the start of "Nommer Asseblief". I don't know if this was intentional but it is really fun. The inclusion of Futurama sound bytes adds to the humour. The final two tracks are by Aggitated and Atyss, brilliantly remixed by Noiseanomalie. This fun album should be in your collection. Recommended
Review by Bomelakiesie Admin
Tiago Pimentel is one of the most recognized artists in the world and has had the opportunity to perform in several countries all over the World. He joined One Foot Groove early 2010 and released his latest creation Replenishing Roots on the 4 of February 2011.
1 - Replenishing Roots how did that occur to you?
Well I had this idea for a long time.. I sometimes played on my dj sets really old tracks that I love to hear, but they had to be always the last ones on the set because of the quality difference (almost 10 years of sonic evolution is quite noticeable!!!). So I thought that it was cool to present the only people that still buy cds with something really useful!
2 - There are several collaborations on your latest creation why?
There are actually 2 tracks with other artists. I wanted to have one with Shiva Joerg because of his influence in this scene since… always!… and I also wished to refresh one of my own roots with the track that I had more feedback from my first album "I Saw Your Saw", and who better to do it with me than my Sick Addiction partner?!
3- How did your closest friends react to it and what was their general opinion?
They enjoyed the concept, as much as I do I believe. I think some were concerned because they were all RMX's from "goa age" melodic tracks, so they carried in some sonic difference from my previous work. But I was fortunate to be able to imprint my personality on them… I'm very happy with the final result and the current feedback… especially from old school trance music lovers!
4 - You have been traveling a lot the last few years, which places have been the most amazing to you and why?
Well spiritually was without any doubt India because I got to go to Trimbakeshwar Temple and got a special prayer for my family and me… And party wise I can honestly say that the South African experience has been incredible… early starting parties with people dancing at 5pm on the dance floor. Last time it started to rain like hell and the people just stayed and danced their ass off! Awesome crowd and party promoters.
5 - Any funny stories you want to share with us while you were there?
It wasn't in any of the places above mentioned, but the most weird wasn't such a good one. Long story short… I stayed in the party with Manuel for 30 minutes, and after we had to pick up a ride from a friend we found (fortunately!!) and ran away from barbaric people that came in the party throwing rocks at the sound system and raising hell!...
Yeah musician life isn't a sea of roses at all!
6 - Is there a new album cooking in your studio and if so would you like to share with us?
Yeah my third album is already being made. After being away a lot on gigs, I've been making the most of my available time on the studio… I'm so happy with it so far! I'm a very inspired person right now fortunately! hehehe
7 - Finally which country is still in your to do list?
On the top of my to do list is Japan.
We are very happy to present you our new service: Website Development. It is managed by Filipe Ribeiro one of the most experienced people in the field with several years of experience and excellence. We are honored that he and his team are part of our Label. If you are looking for website experts and developers check our services page for more information.
Phase 2 Out Now
This release announces a new phase in NoiseAnomalie's offerings. 5 years since his debut release, we are proud to present Phase2 . Each track is sculpted to be something different and interesting. Sometimes slow and deep, other times frantic and energetic. NoiseAnomalie's 4 Original tracks plus 2 remixes are the start of Phase 2.
