Run by the Japanese-born, European-bred, Chicago-based Nick Calingaert, known to most as Common Factor, Tactile Music is the home for Nick’s further explorations in sound, as well as that of new talent that shares his auricle for catchy, yet intricately sophisticated tunes.

In the years since 1995, when he made his first appearance on vinyl, collaborating with Spencer Kincy (aka Gemini) on ‘7:15pm,’ a track on Gemini’s “Moments of Euphoria EP” for Belgium’s SSR label Nick’s career has taken great leaps and bounds, signing to techno renaissance man Carl Craig’s illustrious Planet E Communications label where his first two Planet E releases were surprise hits, each grabbing Single Of The Month honors in Mixmag while US dance music bible  URB Magazine named Common Factor as one of their Top 100 artists to watch in 1999.

As part of the Planet E family, Common Factor flourished, releasing Dreams Of Elsewhere, a CD collection of his first two vinyl-only EP’s (compiled with extra bonus tracks) and two more vinyl releases - “Pisces Groove” which received rave reviews and sat in the flight cases of more discerning deep house dj’s around the globe and “The World Is Mine”/“Fascination” were co-written with John Redmond on vocals, best known for his ‘People Everyday’ release on Cajual Records.  Nick also spent time on the road, debuting his tracks with John Redmond at the label’s 2000 Miami Winter Music Conference party, supporting Innerzone Orchestra on their American tour, and an extensive live tour of Australia and New Zealand with labelmate Recloose.

Since then, Nick has split with Planet E, forging new relationships with Manchester’s paperecordings, releasing an EP under his own name, honing his remix talents for the likes of Dan Curtin (“Nexus” on Elypsia), Marius (“Blunted Spiral” for Wally’s Groove World) and Maybe And Her Boneless Sisters  (“Dirty Mind” on Zozan Music), and rekindling an old relationship by releasing the first new Common Factor material in over a year with Soma, home to Retroflex, a collaborative project between Nick and fellow Chicagoan and Derrick Carter conspirator Chris Nazuka.

His first release on Tactile, the “Over You” EP garnered a huge response being supported by such key DJ’s as Laurent Garnier, Steve Bug, Tigerhook Corp’s Deep C, Murray Richardson, John Howard,  Ross Allen, David Duriez, C-1 and DJ Deep. The title track was such a hit for both John Acquaviva and D’Julz (The Rex, Paris) that they each licensed it for their forthcoming mix CD’s due for release this Spring.

Enclosed is the second Tactile Music release, and once again, Nick rolls out three tracks of lovely Common Factorism.on this, the Disco Exorcism EP.  Warm, old-school analog basslines, disco-influenced guitar flourishes and bass slaps, and post-disco dancefloor drums are again the order of the day, sure to please discerning house heads and late-night groovers alike.

Release date: May, 2002
