deep in the romanian wilderness, beyond the foggy wastelands and the drab greyness of the metropolitan district you can find the base of two musical wizards who invoke the spirit of the past to transmit a very modern interpretation of their nation s musical traditions.
dj koze might be one of the worlds best producers, but above all hes a dj, and it’s his dj ear that governs. just as in a great set, so with his releases: seeing aliens came out of nowhere, a big buzzing beast of a track, to announce that koze was back on the scene and prime everyone for the coming album, knock knock. but now that koze has your attention, it’s time to remind everyone what’s most important about club music, pull things back, take a turn to the left, and get deep into the groove. thus pick up: the second single from knock knock is 100% pure groove, doubly so in the extended 12inch version. in a sense its incredibly familiar it is essentially a filter disco record, very close to something you could imagine coming out of paris around the turn of the millennium. but of course, this is koze. nothing is normal or familiar in his world, and hes taken this most foundational of clubland staples into new territory

the new white release comes with a fundamental change: it s an artist ep. the faces series was a very radical and honest way to launch an artist. but for the artist eps we wanted to give them space, so they can share deeper insights of their artistic development with us. says oskar offermann, who runs the label and does all the a&r decisions. the kick-off ep comes from german-peruvian nu , who stood out already with his last white release voca (white004). he was desperately in search of a musical identity for his peruvian roots. so he decided to join a group of shamans during travels through his home country. and they took him on a spiritual journey, in order to find his lost roots on the other side. a trip to hell which lasted a few days.
over the last couple of years, christopher rau has built a reputation as the finest ear canal masseuse in the contemporary house music scene, catching the attention of fellow hamburger dj koze who has recruited him for this new three-track ep. raus debut full-length asper clouds, released in the fall, was noted for straddling the line between >club< and >headphone< music, earning 4 out of 5 stars from resident advisor along the way, and now, with the how are you ep, he follows up to further explore his sonic approach: an assault of subtlety. >pervading animal< is built upon a solid foundation of familiar rhythm box elements, but like vines and moss, the sedating sounds of strings and keys envelop the empty spaces, showing christopher raus ability to combine the artificial and the organic into something transcendent. then, on the flip side, he lets his weirdness factor shine. at first, >c f r< sounds like by-the-numbers muppet new age, but graduates with distinction as the meowing synth squiggles saunter over the basketball beat. the ep denouements with >how are you today<, marked by a toasty chord progression thats playfully trying to compose itself as the track moves forward, turning science fiction into science fact. you want to believe
for his first release of 2012 shlomi aber has kept aside for be as one two of his most roadtested secret weapons of the last months. after a successfull 2011 with two big releases on be as one, which include his exciting collaboration with dj sneak, and the remixes pack for his album on ovum, its now time for >in dancetrippin ep<. in dancetrippin on the a and >faced u< on the b are indeed two very special tracks. as its name says, the a side is a dance-trip indeed, trippy vox and rolling grooves dubbed into shlomis own dark and hypnotic quality trademark sound. faced u on the b is another kind of trip into sounds, this time with a more minimalistic but yet jazzy approach, making it a quality sounding peak time anthem.

trelik returns with a repackaged edition of one of the catalogues most treasured releases. overcome and lady science (nyc sunrise) need little introduction, and now come sporting the new tr11:11 matrix number. written and produced by thomas melchior and baby ford aka soul capsule. these tracks came from one of the many sessions recorded at the west london ifach studio in 1999. on the a side overcome is stripped back and energetic, driven by rolling and shuffling garage style beats, tight bubbling bass and atmospheric synth pads. the intermittent vocal samples and the release s signature organ set you up for the flip, lady science (nyc sunrise) . possibly one of house music s most emotive pieces, the track builds slowly with the introduction of each part building a story of soulful optimism based around a sparse palette of deep synths, uplifting keys and warm analogue bass. the understated beauty of the main vocal riff never seems to grow old or tired with the track lending itself perfectly to either main room, peak-time play or after-hours sessions alike. remastered by rashad at d & m
