a new light shines forth in the world of electronic music. as more and more indie labels emerge there is a need to be distinguished and stand out from the rest. typically those who do a great job at contributing a new and unique sound to our planets dance floors reign supreme. but how can one tell what is new and unique if they have not experienced these moments themselves? based on over 20 years as a dj and producer, paul loraine is proud to present his next leap in his career with a fresh new imprint, rhythm cult. sticking to what works best in clubland while avoiding trends and relying on music that really feels special, the spanish label proudly presents its first record in the catalog.
for is 3rd release on musique risquee, after the well acclaimed dirty lipreading single and is first full lenght foe destroyer, stephen beaupre is back with a really solid record. thats all there is to say. gl’amour as the distinctive signature of stephen beaupré, his subtle use of vocals, strings colored with warm echos layered on a big and chunky drum beat. you can easilly acknowledge is natural sens of storytelling unfold in a brillant way. on the flipside, when you have it, would be an excellent way to summarise stephen electrifying live sets: funky, melodic hypnotic and sexy. we are very proud of this last one, hope you enjoy as much as we do.
we are delighted to announce the wagon repair debut of montreal native stephen beaupre. one half of crackhaus, a long time collaboration with deadbeat, stephen has recently released solo material on labels from musique risque and ~scape, and put out his debut album on mutek’s own imprint in 2006. in honour of the great ancient persian empire, ‘achaemenid’ roams stridently with tight kick, clangorous melodic cascades and prodding rhythmic tones. ethereal string pads and moaning atmospherics imply conflict, narrated by catchy vocal passages from beyond the murky depths. a reverberant rhythmic synth line injects life into ‘lotus eaters’, with static vocal samples and penetrative melodic tones forming sonic structures around deep tom and rattled hat. grossly intoxicating, elements lull into a mellow haze before reanimating into a wildfire finale.
support comes from laurent garnier, mike shannon and karotte. one year after the release of his first masterful first solo album >foe destroyer<, on musique risquée and mutek_rec, stephen beaupre is back with with >fish fry<. for a first release on circus company we can say that monsieur beaupre is striking hard! on a side, >fish fry< is the tipical powerfull and psychedelic track stephen got the secret. thats the one you need to rock a dancefloor on peak time. we could compare it to a volcano. on b side, >stutter< leads us to a more straight 4/4 beat track
stephen verhackstückelt gerne & viel. jedes geräusch ist ein potentielles instrument. das kann man cut-up nennen, aber wir bevorzugen doch >energetischer sound-reigen voller ideen< mit einer kickdrum die laub von bäumen schütteln kann. tolle spassplatte
