we celebrate five years of freakadelle recordings with our 10th release “x”, consisting of four hand-picked tracks by our residents, which on the one hand represent the diversity of our artists and on the other hand also portray the strong musical development and the cohesion of our subcultural community over the past years.
wie klingt es, wenn zwei künstler mit annähernd 30 jahren altersunterschied zusammen elektronische musik produzieren? im falle von mige ist das ergebnis ein provokantes stück clubmusik, das vor allem eines nicht ist: konventionell. mal auf das minimum reduziert, mal zu einer dichten klangwolke geschichtet (b-seite), mal verschoben und laid back, dann wieder gerade und nach vorne. das kontrollierte dem zufall überlassen, den hypnotischen moment einzufangen und nicht mehr loszulassen wird bei gerald peklar und mike myrs aka mige zum tonangebenden stilmittel.
new year - new music. the label freakadelle starts the year 2017 with -superis ep- by gerald peklar - founder of the association freakadelle. the ep is a sampler from the same-titled album, which was released on reflex recordings in 2016. the tracks have been reworked particularly for the dance floor and feature precise shuffled grooves, driving basslines and a reduced but sufficient amount of sound elements. only b1 (superis5) is the odd one out, being a dreamy and spheric electronica track. apart from that, the ep impresses with hypnotic loops and pressing arrangements without flourishes.
bringing together their eclectic musical background, both individuals behind the recently born artist duo exponent share a vision of a uniting element in dance music, which is much more defined by atmosphere and its demarcation to mainstream music than by simple genre characteristics. sometimes broken, sometimes straight - those three tracks end up with a four-to-the-floor attitude, without intending to. complex and simple at the same time, never letting go of that one hypnotic groove, which keeps us together during those special nights. 22.22. is released on freakadelle, the record label of the same-named cultural npo based in salzburg, austria.
the name is the game - little bit delayed but here it is: vinyl debut by fehlzündung on freakadelle. driving dub vibes colliding with analog artefacts. completed by an epic trip on the b-side, which will let time stand still on all quality dance floors.
the already 4th production of the record label freakadelle, founded in 2013, represents a very special release this time. the vinyl only release includes 6 exclusive tracks of 6 well-known personalities from 6 different nations. all of the artists have performed as live acts or djs at freaksound klubhaus in the last two and a half years. hence, the record also embodies a unique memento of a moving time in salzburg s club history and subculture. the release unites various styles of house and techno, but at the same time proves to be a lively mixture of young emerging talents as well as renowned artists.
almost two years after their austrian amadeus award nominated debut album *different believers*, allen alexis present their second lp *the other side* at the end of october, releasing it only on vinyl at first. the first extracted single *over the sea* is already in heavy rotation on the radio.
the name is the game, since this time a more different, club-oriented side of allen alexis was increasingly brought to the fore. musically, the album does not only live up to the musicians various orientations, but also to the multiple personality of the artistic character allen alexis, in which the de- and reconstruction of their tracks are being reflected.
presssing on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl, download code included.
the second production *between ep* by the 2013-born label freakadelle marks the first release of four young musicians. the producers are already well known in the local house and techno scene around the city of salzburg.
