Today we premiere a track from one of our favourite artists of all time, and an act who has literally been there and done that within the dance music scene, the mighty and legendary CJ Bolland.
Set to be released on RAW, who after more than 5 years in the techno scene as a promoter, label, and agency, the Paris based collective launched their first vinyl and digital compilation earlier in the year. They have clearly set the bar high and have followed up with yet another VA this time entitled ‘Third Eye’ which is still a mystery as to who is featured. To say we’re excited to premiere this track ‘Red Raw‘ from CJ Bolland is an understatement.
Hailing from Durham in the UK, but very much engrained in Antwerp, Belgium from a young age, CJ Bolland is well and truly a legend of techno and dance music in general. He cut his teeth in dance music from an early age as his parents ran a club in Antwerp, with his mother DJing there.
He grew up listening to a diverse selection of electronic music, but by the late ’80s he had devoted most of his time to house and techno when he began releasing tracks. At the time he was one of the first producers to ever be signed by the then iconic R&S Records, he since has worked with everyone from Jeff Mills to Joey Beltram.
Bolland is one of the most consistent producers in the history of dance music, with numerous stone cold classics that stand the test of time, and are regularly features on dance floors, radio and mixes worldwide.
The full VA release ‘Third Eye’ is available for free download on Monday, May 10th via the RAW Bandcamp page here.
