Lee Foss Launches a New Label, North Of NeptuneJanuary 6, 2023
Repopulate Mars’ newest sub-label kicks off with an energized two-tracker from UK newcomer Toby Simpson.
Responsible for the creation of some of dance music’s most revered and successful imprints, including South Of Saturn, Hot Creations, and Repopulate Mars — which came in as Beatport’s eighth best-selling label of 2022 — Lee Foss is kicking off the New Year with yet another cosmic label venture: North Of Neptune.
For its debut release, the LA-based tech house maestro has tapped rising UK talent Toby Simpson, who emerged on the scene last year with releases on Hottrax and Cuttin Headz. He impressed Foss after a chance meeting at Paradise in Amnesia while spending his summer in Ibiza, and Foss was quick to sign him on to his latest label venture. Simpson’s Come Together EP is a starry-eyed sign of things to come on this promising new imprint, featuring heady grooves, engaging vocal hits, and supreme tech house basslines that just won’t quit. Listen below.
“I’m excited to explore the further reaches of the Repopulate galaxy,” says Foss about the new label’s arrival. “The sound of North Of Neptune shimmers in the glow of raining liquid diamonds in the coolest funkiest reaches of the known galactic funk hub.”
Toby Simpson’s Come Together EP is out now via North Of Neptune. Buy it on Beatport.
