Watch Kevin & Jasmine perform our new Freeform track “Open Your Mind”!
**Massive Update** Kevin Energy and Jasmine Knight’s Kickstarter funded album “Universal Energy” is finally here, including a brand spanking new lockdown collaboration between myself and Kevin!
Featuring classic sounds with a style that we developed over many years of working together “Deep Inside” takes you on a journey through a spacey acid infused Hardcore dreamscape into rolling Freeform madness completed by Jasmine’s exquisite vocal talents. We’re super proud of this track which we think encompasses some of the best elements of our past works with super-tight new skool production values.
There’s a limited number of 3 x CD albums left plus so grab yourself a copy at Kevin Energy’s website before they’re gone forever! You’ll also find the entire Nu Energy Recordings catalogue remastered there too along with some exclusive Merchandise too!
I’ve created a new template for Ableton Live 8 users! Explore Freeform production in Live – the project uses both Live’s Clip view & Arrange View to ensure that you’ll get how to put tracks together for live performance use too! All sounds, samples and instruments are included in the download the project makes extensive use of Live’s Simpler instrument to provide most of the key melodic elements as playable instruments. The track also features beautiful vocal samples taken from DMS Acapellas Vol 3.
The project requires no 3rd party plugins, so all that you need to load up, edit and explore this track is Live Standard 8.4.2 or higher (also compatible with Ableton Live 9). Please note that users of older version of Live 8 may need to upgrade to the most recent version use this project.Download the Ableton Live Freeform Template here.
I came across an old track on Youtube today… “Kevin Energy, Sharkey & K Complex – The Baptism (Daniel Ro Remix) ” – the label says published in 2002 – this one takes me back to the early days of the Nu Energy Recs and UK Hard Dance sub-label Dynamix – way before the entire Nu Energy Collective project began!
K-Complex B2B with Mark Ashley – classic Freeform set, expect us to pull out some tasty ol’ Freeform tunes! This special night also features a 2 hour comeback set from Kevin Energy! Make sure you make it down to this one – previous I Love Hard Beats nights have absolutely kicked it – don’t miss out on one hell of a messy night total chaos! Friday, February 20, 2015 10:00pm – 6:00am, Rhythm Factory, London. Click here for Tickets and more info.
Join K-Complex and explore the golden era of Freeform production in the early to mid 2000’s in this all new Logic project featuring a complete track arrangment. Using authentic sounds combined with new production values and of course that trademark K-Complex sound, this track explores all of the production elements that make up a banging UK Freeform track. The track makes use of Logic’s EXS24 sampler, ESM, ES1 and ES2 synth and includes classic K-Complex samples and presets used in many of his tunes. Featuring a chunky Freeform bass, twisting acid line and soaring lead arpeggio this track emulates K-Complex’s early work on Nu Energy Recordings, Bonkerz and Stompin Tunes along with many other key labels of the day.

THE BIG ONE HUNDRED! At last it’s here – the final chapter! 10+ years in the making and the culmination of a label that’s pioneered an entirely different genre of Hardcore that now stands proud on its own. Having nurtured countless artists over the years, showcased the underground productions of established members of the scene, and of course been the home to the head of the NEC, Kevin Energy himself, this is the fitting farewell we offer you. Two landmark mixes brought to you by Kevin Energy b2b A.B, with one mix showcasing the tracks from the past that have shaped the identity of Nu Energy, and with the other mix offering you upfront remixes from the most current NEC-associated artists of classic beats gone by. All the track singles are also available as part of the package – so that’s a whopping 37 full-length tracks + 2 DJ mixes included in this final chapter of freeform! This album is a piece of Hardcore history and is our tribute to the music that has made Nu Energy the undisputed king of underground sounds since 1998. Let the beats live on by adding this historical album to your collection, and remain Freeform for the Hardcore forever…
