aimed at dancefloors in sleazy bathhouses, seedy basements and soiled warehouses, icarus traxx first offering takes us back to the mythical days of anonymous, muscular power house. delivering no less than three takes of commandment (plus two acapellas), the 12 inch, starring the enigmatic voices of jesse b. simple and charlotte b. good, supplies a choice cut for every disc jockey.
for its fifth instalment (the fourth being a batch of tees - as seen on tv), ensemble once again presents you an ep that brings together an ensemble of allies from all over the place. vinyl only, 300 copies comes with a paper zine and plenty more goodies and insights !
the sixth ensemble release is the debut artist ep of rhythm mind, a young leefdaal raised dissident hiding in the belgian capital. he delivers a solid five tracker that will as likely move feet on a peaktime dancefloor as nourish ears during early morning afterhour home listens.
ONZE DANSES POUR COMBATTRE LA MIGRAINE (KRIKOR REMIXES)
12" Vinyl NL05.02.16
originally recorded by marc moulin, vincent kenis and marc hollander in 1977 brussels. leapfrogging over style and genre boundaries, the lp shuffles between improvised jazz, minimalism, imaginary ethnic music, classical and even proto-techno (saure gurke foreshadows characteristic detroit techno riffs by a good ten years). it became a cult album in its own right and a few decades later parisian dj / producer krikor spontaneously decided to rework two tracks for his dj-sets. ensemble brings his remixes with the kind permission of crammed, marc hollander / aksak maboul and krikor.
