Eclypse Records began in 2015 by Grammy Nominated DJ/Producer duo, Feenixpawl (Josh Soon + Aden Forte) and Jason Forte. The label, launched in conjunction with Wind-up Records in April, have released singles and remixes by Feenixpawl and Jason Forte, and are developing a reputation as well-known curators.
Together, Josh, Aden and Jason have been hand selecting music from a fresh batch of up and coming DJ’s, releasing tracks from the likes of Bynon, Michael Brun, Reez, Corey James, Joakim Molitor and more. The singles, which have garnered attention from major EDM and electronic outlets like YourEDM, EDM.com, Magnetic Mag and Earmilk, have also gained recognition from the likes of Billboard and other tastemakers in the blogosphere.
The label arrive today with their second compilation of original tracks, Eclypse Volume Two; available for free download now and featuring original tracks from Maxum & Simon Alex, Badr Avsar, Jose De Mara and more. Speaking of the download initiative, label bosses Jason, Aden and Josh noted, “We launched our free download initiative to release some of the amazing music we get sent every single day and it’s been an incredible success so far. We are so happy to give the opportunity to some upcoming producers who we are sure you’ll be hearing more from in the future.”
The Eclypse Records label bosses have been busy working on their own music on the label as well. Feenixpawl recently released a new single, “Quicksand” with APEK, which continues to grow across all streaming platforms, with the track being added to several select Spotify playlists, as well as play-listing looks from Proximity and Zoedic. To compliment the track’s major buzz and success, Eclypse launched the “Quicksand” Remix package following the release and an official WAVO Remix Contest. Additionally, Feenixpawl once again prove their remix abilities by releasing a Fitz and the Tantrums REMIX for “Handclap”, premiering via Blackbook. The remixed track was recently added to Spotify’s New Music Friday and Fresh EDM, and ‘Best of the Week Pop’ on apple music and currently at 146k streams in just 9 days. To further confirm, Feenixpawl’s remix of Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” hit #1 at Hype Machine.
What’s next for Eclypse Records? “We feel the journey has just begun and we’re constantly pushing ourselves to take our music and Eclypse Records to even further heights,” adds Josh Soon.
