The best kept secret in music


"Dump Days ep & Signifying ep"

Scott Ferguson is one of the most exciting new players on the underground dance music scene. His first outing on his own Ferrispark label "Dump Days", is a dark, atmospheric affair combining elements of old school Detroit Techno, modern jazz, and Theo Parrish style funk. A truly great release!

"Signifying ep" features more of a down-temo house vibe, kind of like Larry Heard meets Theo Parrish-a warped, druggy, 110 bpm groover with cool jazzy disco overtones. Don't let this one slip the nest as it's up there with the Moodymann's best work. - M8 Magazine

"Bleed to be Free ep/Ferrispark"

OK, for the growing legion of heads who clamor behind the joyous noise of Detroit house icons Kenny Dixon Jr. and Theo Parrish, get thy hands on anything from this label immediatley. This is their sixth release, and it's absolutely gorgeous. A lo-fi downbeat plays behind Marvin Belton's muscular vocalizing, that sort of thing. The two dubs are also outstanding. - URB Magazine

"Bleed to be Free ep"

Ferrispark returns with an epic, deep vocal excursion that puts me in the mind of some of the best Blaze productions of old. Seriously deep and stripped back to the bare minimum, this is the sort of thing that could easily be going down a storm with Timmy Regisford at the Shelter. - M8 Magazine

"URB Magazine Next:100"

There are few spots in Detroit grittier than Highland Park, and few Detroit labels making grittier house records than HP's Ferrispark. You can virtually smell the dust in every groove of the label's eight releases, most produced by founder Scott Ferguson with contributions from DJ/producer Keith Kemp or vocalist Marvin Belton. - URB Magazine

"Gnosis ep"

The man behind the 'Ferrispark' imprint returns with this seriously deep four track E.P. This is the seventh release on the label and is one that's guaranteed to please fans of Moodymann and Theo Parrish output, thanks to its experimental nature and infectious grooving feel. From atmospheric mood grooves to sublime, afro deepness this is a fine release throughout and one that should definitely be checked out. - M8 Magazine

"White Buffalo ep"

Proving that Gigolo isn't always about pop that calls itself electro, Scott Ferguson wows both fans and haters of IDJG with the deepest of deep techno. Like a dexterous lover, a subtle rhythm section teases rear ends into action whilst that deep house staple, the xylophone, does improbably catchy things over the top. Deep housers are going to be 'on' this too. - Jockey Slut Magazine

"White Buffalo ep 2"

Guest Reviewer

"I listened to the A1 and really liked the track's opening. I like the actual rhythmn and the minimal beats. I really liked the groove on the second track - really lazy, really sassy - and I liked the delete on the vocal, it's kind of rock-top." - Mixer Magazine

"What the press and various other inside people say about Red D…"

‘A party animal with the groove as his habitat who is slowly but surely becoming one of the most influential and talented dj’s in Belgium and beyond.’ (1Love, Halle)

‘Belgium’s premier house dj.’ (Rush Hour, Amsterdam)

‘Not like any other this dj dares to bring the necessary variation in his sets.’ (XL Air, Brussels) - Various

"Sounds Vol. 1"

What is it?
The first CD Compilation from the only label we know holding it down in the Highland Park neighborhood of Detroit.

Who's on it
Label head Scott Ferguson wisely opens with his brilliant rotary drum churner "Dump Days", probably you were already hip to, although it's about time you discover Silvio Manuel and Marvin Belton.

Any Good?
Forget austere techno, Detroit is also the home of the dirtiest house around. With this collection, Ferrispark officially joins the ranks of slow burners like Moodymann's Mahogani Music and Theo Parrish's Sound Signature. URB

Sounds Vol. 1 V.A.
The first label compilation for three year old Detroit house (yes, Detroit house) label Ferrispark Records makes us wonder what we've been missing. Six artists contribute 12 tracks that rum Brazilian rhythms ("Vudu Brasileno"), Robert Owens-ish vocals ("Bleed to be Free"), and proggy atmospherics ("La Danza de las Fantasmas") through the same bass-heavy, minimalist, Maurizio-esque filter. It's all pitched-down, bulbous, and sexy; a more muted version of teh sound that first made Tenaglia unique. CSI - URB Magazine & CSI Magazine

Feeling a bit camera shy


Part one of the FPR TOUR is complete and was well received across Europe. The second part of our tour will begin in the Netherlands on June 10th.

Around the world influential artists and producers have been praising and playing Ferrispark Records music on the radio, in night clubs and in bars for more than four years. Now is an opportunity for fans and newcomers to enjoy an intimate gathering with some of our top artists and producers.

Part two of the 2006 Ferrispark Records European Tour will include DJ sets by label head and producer Scott Ferguson and Belgium's "Premier DJ" Red D. Three new releases: "Save Our Sons and Daughters", "In the Light", and the "Champetu heritage ep" will be the spotlight of the tour commencing on March l7 in Belgium followed by dates in Germany, Switzerland, and Spain.

Scott Ferguson

A unique synthesis of Blues, Rock, Soul, Disco, House, and Techno are echoed in both Scott Ferguson's productions and DJ sets. His jazzy and soulful compositions, energetic club tracks and druggy slow-burners incorporate a blend of engaging rhythms with conscious themes. Music lovers around the globe have turned on to Ferguson's gutsy and provocative style. The 2001 release of the catchy dancefloor track "Dump Days" licensed by DJ Hell's Gigolo Records and Derrick Carter's Classic Music Company sparked Ferguson's international success. Ferguson has gone on to produce many successful records, including both of Marvin Belton's beautiful 12" releases "Bleed to be Free" and "Any Day Now", Silvio Manuel's dark and minimal "Master of Darkness ep", the jazzy Detroit duo En Passant, and remixed Detroit's own Alton Miller and Reggie Dokes, Israel's Juju & Jordash, and British based Native Funk.
As a Dj Ferguson has played infamous Detroit clubs like Motor, and The Works, and toured across Europe bringing a distinctive sound playing new and unheard releases, extremely rare records, and exclusive edits.

Scott Ferguson will be promoting his first full length album on Ferrispark Records entitled "Save Our Sons and Daughters".

Red D

Red D started listening to new beat and Belgian rave anthems around 1989 and slowly moved in the direction of House and Techno. Laurent Garnier's "Shot In The Dark" triggered Red D's quest for unique expression. This path has led Red D to Chicago, Detroit, New York and back. An eternal love for the originators of House and Techno in these cities defines the sound of Red D. Red D’s Dj sets are inspired by the last 30 years of dance music. It goes without saying that as a Dj Red D firmly believes that there are no boundaries in dance music, anything goes. If the time is right to drop a disco classic he’ll drop it, if a slice of Detroit techno fits the evening that’s what you’ll get, because house is not about playing 120 bpm soulful deep stuff all night, it’s about creating a certain energy on the dance floor, it’s about surprising people, conjuring up records that make people go: “that’s house?”.

Red D recently won the Diesel-U-Music competition by unanimous decision in the category "Dance". He has also played alongside artists such as Osunlade, Tyree Cooper, Victor Simonelli, Fabrice Lig, Suburban Knight, Alton Miller, and Theo Parrish.

Red D will be promoting his new 12" release on Ferrispark Records entitled "Champetu Heritage EP'.
