this is my best album for sure, says todd. we cant be exactly sure on that one, all three albums from todd bodine have been great. forms however, is perhaps the most complex and mature album that the berlin producer and dj has accomplished to date. and its also out with us! todd has worked at full speed over the last six months to bring us this fine piece of work. as a dj playing around the world and as a producer in the highest ranks of consistency, todd bodine has constantly developed as an artist. releases and remixes on respected labels, and collaborations with various artists have made him an internationally popular electronic musician. in 2007 he finally began to perform as a live act, and what club would better fit todds new live premiere than the panorama bar in berlin!? todd shows with forms, his innate knowledge of the two sides of electronic dance music. this is a meeting of peaktime euphoria with the relaxing bliss of the hazy morning light. a meeting of hypnotic natural rhythms and driving cut-up sounds. todd can impress you with dancefloor bombs and also with his sophisticated sound visions. the sound of detroit would probably be the best comparison.

HARMONIC TRIBES (TODD BODINE RMX)
12" Vinyl D 30.04.12
label like soma records, universal, get physical and also highgrade, all contribute to the impressive credentials of the spaniard, prompts breathtaking live sets and releases. but prompt, himself the founder of his own label 7noise, is never one to rest on his laurels: instead he continues to push boundaries with his new live project: the prompt live band, a fusion of electronic sound production and jazz. this is not the first such step for the clasically trained musician, with his onuba project he has already mixed the flamenco sound of home country with electronic music. the three tracks to be released on highgrade records, created in collaboration with the chop suey quartet, bring to life what would appear to be almost impossible: a real connection between the highly concentrated nature of electronic rhythms and the loose and improvised sounds of jazz instrumentation. the result is a very special kind of studio jam session: victor tarín on piano, david blanco on bass, daniel del val on the drums - and prompt on a computer! with so much pasion for musical innovation on show, its no wonder that highgrade co-boss todd bodine wanted to get his fingers into the pie and deliver his own remix for the ep

MOTIVE UNKNOWN (DEEPCHILD REMIX)
12" Vinyl D 27.02.12
with new artist noah pred, the highgrade family adds another exciting voice to the labels musical cosmos. although the canadian producer, dj and founder of his own label thoughtless is already internationally saavy, he recently decided to move to the worlds hub of electronic music and pitch his tent in berlin. included in his luggage: his very own creative perspective, a great sense for aesthetics and an unerring feeling for music, learnt in part, from his many years as a bassist. noahs first ep for berlin label, highgrade records sets an exciting precedent. the track >motive unknown< trickles organically into the aural canals, before the drips become digital drops and the track comes crashing from the speakers in a steady flow. the entire piece is simultaeneously suspended and captivating. no wonder then, that the remixes from deepchild and phonokemi manage to bring out further different facets of a already multifaceted track. while deepchild brings a dub element, phonokemi move the tune into darker musical territory. its brought back with noah preds folding cranes, which follows the thread through a musical universe infused with pounding and grinding percussion.

EXTENSIVE FORMS EP
12" Vinyl D 14.02.12
the name dachshund is one immediately associated with experimantation, an innate feeling for ryhthm and good dose of tongue and cheek. the swiss dj, producer and label founder can scarcely hide his musical roots in reggae. the sunshine feeling from those days still shines through in his current productions and gives them a touch of dub. his latest ep for highgrade records is no different. this leads to the first track >extensive talk< with its reduced beginning sounding something like a false start. gloomy voices implore us to >come, sit down, forever<.this delusion establishes itself in a musical theatre, while simultaneously becomming more pressing as the track winds its way into the legs – moving inexorably towards the second groovy track, >asymmentric love<, with its sprinkle of varied and original sound ideas. the final offering, >octogone< goes even further and weaves original loops and straight edged percussion into a compelling carpet of sound.

SOLARIS
12" Vinyl D 16.01.12
from celle into the wide world: these days guido schneider is one of the major globetrotters among djs and producers worldwide, but he began his career 15 years ago in provincial germany. however, instead of baking bread rolls, schneider founded his own label neue welten right from the beginning. it was a move that naturally brought him to the capital of electronic music in berlin. what followed was a series of exciting and successful collaborations with other renowned artists, and after dissolving his label, schneider began travelling as a sought after dj, jetting all around the globe. it is little wonder that such a reputable dj and producer also belongs to the diverse highgrade family. he has now produced another ep for the berlin label which brings us the typical guido schneider qualities right before our eyes, or even better: before our ears! the two tracks navigate precicely from the first bar, the minimal sound universe that relies on elaborate percussion, without ever being over produced, and flow into fantastically harmonic vocals that lend the thumping beats an elegant softeness. simply stated, typically schneider.

SHALL WE EP
12" Vinyl D 15.08.11
dachshund is a living example of a musician who doesnt take himself too seriously: his lively productions, where his passion for experimentation in rhythm and sound are clearly evident, stand out as a welcome departure from the sterile work of so many other heads in the scene. besides humor, an easy-going jamaican feeling characterizes his sets and tracks: the swiss dj, producer and label owner has his musical roots in reggae, which he has followed all the way to the sunny caribbean. no wonder then, that we can hear the dub influence in his current musical output. true to form, dachshund presents his latest release on the berlin record label, highgrade records, where the beats will blister through the speakers in unexpected combinations and grooves. around every corner there seems to lurk a new mad idea or sound sequence from dachshund, who leads his listeners equally as he misleads them on the dancefloor. with a sly musical wink, he offers us three tracks >shall we<, >soul free< and >tell me< produced with sophistication and elegance. these tunes switch almost imperceptibly into a grooving mind-trip that perfectly fits the title of the ep. this is the equivalent of a relaxing invitation to dance: >shall we<? … but, of course!

DECOMPOSE
12" Vinyl D 12.07.11
in denmark, there rages a lively and experimental techno scene - and its not only a recent phenomenon. the best proof are phono and kemi, two danish imports to the berlin record label, highgrade records. the two chaps complement each other in a musically virtuoso fashion: phono, jacob thiessen, spent his childhood playing around with sequencers and drum machines: over the years he has stuck to this passion and as such, has developed a reputation as an experienced house and techno producer. kim kemi, by contrast, has been a dj since the beginning, and since the 90s has been one of the key figures in the copenhagen club scene. together they have not only performed regularly at the biggest events in denmarks capital, but have also ensured through their many releases, ever changing accents and atmospheres on the turntables. this wealth of combined musical experience can be heard instantly on their latest outing for highgrade – >decompose<. the three tracks, >decompose<, >exterminators< & >last night< assemble rhythms that come from punk, elegant voices and dizzying loops a multi-layered sound excursion. the result is a perfectly produced ep, but one that has not been ironed smooth. with the >made in denmark< seal of quality, phono and kemi bring some extra depth to the party attitude

SECOND WIND
12" Vinyl D 15.06.11
open the curtain for the next trick from the highgrade disharmonic orchestra: for the last year the team have been busy refuting the notion that the dj is a one-man-band in the booth… tom clark, todd bodine, philip bader, dale and daniel dreier are an act that combines all their many and varied qualities into one pot, stirring vigorously and serving up a hearty dish that goes straight to the hips! they have proven many times with their live performance that the musical ingredients are just right – and have also put the evidence on the record with an original ep. now comes the follow up. the first track way too far, is a live recording which evokes an atmosphere of urban beats and pulsating flashes just behind the eyes and a dancing crowd who appear to sink deep into the dance floor. then theres a complete chance of scene for the second track the other night, that appears to hijack the veranda of a villa in the american south. crisp rhythms are backed by muffled thumping beats, a trumpet laments, a sexy sleep-talking emerges in gentle piano sounds. this is southern passion under the disco ball, cleverly approximated by the highgrade disharmonic orchestra

STAND FIRM EP
12" Vinyl D 28.02.11
anyone who advertises on their facebook site that they create music for dogs while working under the name dachshund must have a sense of humor. and indeed, it seems the swiss dj, producer and label boss doesnt think much of sterile production and is prepared to use his sence of passion and fun to create rhythms of every kind in his work. perhaps this is a legacy of dashshunds musical roots: in the 90s he played in various reggae bands, which eventually took him to jamaica. from the sunny islands he brought back a dub influence which can still be heard in his music today. he has already proven, with his highgrade debut on the >group of connected heads compilation, his feeling for up-beat, bouncy rhythms. nothing has changed with his first solo release on highgrade. groovy, original and funky, it booms from the speakers. that the first track is called >stand firm<, must be due to the humor of dachshund: the beats immediately encourage you to do the exact opposite… shake your booty!

UP LANTIS EP
12" Vinyl D 17.01.11
with his debut release on highgrade, >never end<, artist and producer andri has already proven his sense for captivating rhythms and driving beats. it is no accident that the swiss producer spent his childhood swinging the drumsticks and is now bringing his enthusiasm for those beats to the dancefloor. andri is known well beyond the borders of his native switzerland for his energetic and sweaty live performances, which always include new tracks for the floor. with his live sets he aims to encourage more than just wiggling movement – he tries to incite the party freak, to inspire a >technoid mind state< where people want to dance like crazy, all night long! as he says himself: >the people on the dancefloor should be able to experience the story of my sets and completely forget themselves.< but andri is not attempting to be a hyper intellectual sound director, and while his sets and tracks are carefully composed, they also retain a sense of humour. this is the case with his new highgrade release: >up lantis<. the three tracks - >up lantis<, >come to me< and >mr. groove< skillfully play with original samples, crackling beats and sexy basslines. they develop a very unique field of tension, punctuated with a lot of fun filled andri trademarks: this is the dictation of groove

BLACK MADONNA EP
12" Vinyl D 22.11.10
daniel dreier has been one of the most active members of the berlin techno scene for over 10 years. as a resident dj at clubs like watergate & panorama bar has has created his own wobbly minimal funk and delivers beats that keep the dancefloor in a state of jiggling suspense. as a producer he has made his name synonymous with highgrade as a core member of the labels family. it comes as quite a surprise when he says: >when i was young, i had absolutely no interest in music - i just felt like i was missing it.< but that sentiment has clearly changed. in the early 90s dreier began recording songs form the radio and mixing them with the help of a double cassette deck. his hip-hop mix tapes from this period made their way all around the former west berlin. fortunately for all techno fans, a visit to the legendary bunker club gave his musical taste a new direction. daniel dreier dived into the depths of electronic sound, and by the end of the 90s was playing his first dj gigs at berlin fashion shows. from then on its been an upward journey, whether on radio, at festivals or in clubs all over europe. his success has surely come from the very special dreier sound that has always stayed fresh, deep and energetic. little wonder then, that this latest highgrade release, featuring the tracks black madonna, last dinner and angeldust, is a record that moves your hips from the very first beat.

DUSTY BACK ROOM
12" Vinyl D 23.11.09
all the way from new zealand to the urban landscapes of berlin, simon beeston is a man who likes diversity. this is not just evident in his choice of residence, but also in his musical output. following an ep on highgrade digital and a track on our various artists vol. vi record, simon now presents dusty back room, his first solo 12inch release on highgrade. the ep opens with the title track dusty back room, a track of strings and stabs, and a sound not exactly typical of previous highgrade releases. but when the music comes with such compelling energy and provocative atmosphere, were prepared to make an exception. new zealand meets berlin as we cast an eye over green landscapes and ocean swells, while the bumpy groove intoxicicates us with its magic spell. that simon beeston is a man of great contrast is clearly evident on the b-side with neon cringe and cymbolic. the percussive heat of the club brings us back from the organic landscape of his homeland and into the neon lights of the night. neon cringe resonates with a healthy dose of acid pump, while cymbolic provides a bass driven journey complete with cut up vocals and blistering cymbal rolls. this is a release that richly deserves its round number: highgrade number 70. especially with the addition of the bonus digital track tough luck, another highlight all of its own.

marcus homm provides the starting point with “transposer“: funky, impulsive and peppered with unusual sounds. next up, tom clark takes the helm with “ultimo” and steers a course towards the dancefloor peaktime! on the flip, asem shama and demir & seymen splash out. asem’s “erato“ rocks in exhilarating fashion, and the fresh new highgrade lads demir & seymen provide rolling percussion and powerful orchestral stabs on “ethnos“, which really give the dancefloor some legs.

SCORPIO
12" Vinyl D 31.08.09
with this new ep tom clark makes an impressive return to the highgrade release program. following a collaboration with marcus schatz and most recently with benno blome, he now comes back as a solo artist. after only a few beats, you’ll be sure to recognise his signature sound. tom needs surprisingly few elements to build a unique atmosphere and his matchless grooves. on the title track “scorpio“ we find a deep, rolling bassline and a slightly orientally influenced vocal, combined with the typically unique clarkish synth leads, and we’re ready to go. it’s a track that continually keeps the excitement moving while never letting the cat out of the bag, and more than deserves the a-side. then we come to “albino“, also featuring sparkling synths and rolling drums that create an impression of fluidity and an unhurried beginnings, but we also end up in a waterfall… who would have known!? in conclusion comes “sand flea“, as lively as a box of fleas, but not nearly as aggrivating! mister clark is again at his best, with a love for detail, an innate sence for strange sounds and an a significant quantity of leisurely energy, this tune also really hits the mark. this is not the work of a newbie who produces an aggressive sound to prove his talents. the result is the feature of this ep: seldom has an understatement sounded so fresh. + digital-only bonus track “12 notes“!

adf, aka adriano filippucci which manages to achieve a homogeneous fusion combining the euphoric feeling of techno and the vibrant soul of house. the title track, >perugia< is named after adrianos hometown in the heart of italy. whether it is the warmth of the sun or the mediterranean lust for life, perugia turns out to be a massive track, with its sparking melodies and a real sense of atmosphere and dynamic mischief. perugia gets the remix treatment from two of the directors at the highgrade headquarters. todd bodine sends the track firmly in the direction of detroit and into some new sonic territory. label boss tom clark sets the focus on the tracks technoid energy and simply lets the groove run away on route to its own destination. avanti avanti, amici!!

RED FACES EP
12" Vinyl D 15.06.09
weare proud to welcome marc antona as the newest member on the highgrade artist roster. unless youve spent the last few years living under a rock you will most likely already know his name! the french producer has recently put out releases on several hot labels like freak n chic, micro-fibres, sender and mobilee . the opening track, >red faces< instantly proves why marcs sound fits perfectly into the highgrade musical universe: highly energetic and hypnotic, it develops slowly but relentlessly into an irresistible groove. the first track on the flipside >wheel of chance< skillfully picks up this train of thought, throwing some more percussion into the mix, which next to some bleeping synth lines will guarantee effortless intoxication on the dancefloor. hustle< on the b2 grooves on relentlessly as well - with some slick seeded reverse claps and detroit inspired synth stabs. our hats are definitely off to this release, and we look forward to many more from mr. antona!

played by luciano, lauhaus, kabale & liebe and many more. its about time! with >channel by channel< markus homm presents his first solo ep on highgrade. until now, this cosmopolitan citizen of the world, who shares his time between hong-kong, moscow, london and nuremberg – has been part of the successful collaboration: homm & popoviciu. one vinyl ep and three digital releases have already made a strong impression with the highgrade faithful. with this ep and its four groovey house tracks, markus homm signals the springtime. the title track >channel by channel< already foreshadows where this journey will end: fleet footed rhythms meet sweet chords and result in a sunny house groover that immediately kills the winter blues >torn< on the flipside is also built around an irresistible melody, while >xpander< (b2) gets things moving a little faster towards the end. proving again, how skillfully markus homm can create a deep groove from his handpicked melodic elements. it doesnt need much imagination to understand that these three classy tracks will bring their euphoric impact to every dancefloor they touch. thanks for letting the springtime roll, mr. homm!

DOPE ON PLASTIC
12" Vinyl D 09.03.09
along with number 60 in the highgrade catalogue there‘s a new producer team, joining the highgrade posse: markus schatz who scored so far with releases together with tom clark for highgrade and by himself on labels like opossum and freizeitglauben. he worked out this release with brett longman from paris, known from one of france‘s most prolific labels logistic rec. with „dope on plastic“ both start a dub and percussion rollercoaster- ride: the stripped down structure in the beginning unfolds seamlessly to a wildly grooving dub-inferno. similarly funky „push it“ continues this direction: dodgy fm-sounds meet weird synth bleeps plus a whole load of rhythm - the trackname is to be taken literally here! on the flip-side schatz & longman in „running“ are adding some fine dubby ingredients to there rhythm patterns, next exit detroit, one might say. moody without being cheesy, that‘s how we like it. „good vibes“ is zigzagging elegantly, with deep pulsating melodies worked together with an uplifting groove to a fast-paced and atmospheric track.

UNEXPECTED LIFE-FORM
12" Vinyl D 17.11.08
todd bodine demonstrates with this ep once again extraordenary taste and skills. after a very successfull excursion on claude van strokes mothership label and his activities as a heavily booked live-act and dj he presents on >unexpected life-form< two brilliant tracks, that seem to burst with their energy. todd bodine apparently has gained a lot of experience how to bunch the impact on both the dancefloor and the musical side and how to turn the result into a wall of sound. and hes doing it by following his own unique style. on the a-side >calypso< captivates you right after a few seconds with its pulsating sequences and a subtle growing energy-level from break to break. developing a drive which wont miss its impact on any floor. >snakeskin< on the flip is homogeneously build around shimmering melody-sequences which create the energy of this track, while the bassline below pulsates warm and deep. sounds like: detroit without kitsch. or like a cross between matthew johnson, robert hood and fabrice lig. to put it in other words: a typical todd bodine release in the best sense. allready a true highlight in the highgradecatalogue in 20

MULTILAYER (LIM.ED OF 500 UNITS) (CD)
cd D 11.10.11
raise the curtain once more on a very special orchestral performance. how could highgrade records better celebrate its 100th release than with twelve tracks from the highgrade disharmonic orchestra? the creative combo featuring both label bosses tom clark and todd bodine, alongside philip bader, daniel dreier and dale, began over a year ago with the intention of celebrating the tenth birthday of the berlin label. and the resulting gift: a musical experiment. the five artists have bundled their creativity together into a symphony unparalleled in the techno scene. every performance is like a jam session: all five laptops are interconnected, so each of the artists has the opportunity to react to the others and modify each track as desired. thus, new arrangements are created and constantly re-interpreted. drum machines and synthesizers are also in play, to further stretch the improvisational possibilities. no wonder then, that the 100th release follows in this creative vein. the highgrade disharmonic orchestra, with multilayer, kiddnaps us away into vastly different musical worlds: from deep influences and custom recorded vocals to an array of technoid sounds and effects. then back to groovy, swinging beats reminiscent of a balmy summer evening on the beach. therefore the record is something of a rollercoaster ride, where we never know what might be waiting behind the next curve. typically highgrade

this is my best album for sure, says todd. we cant be exactly sure on that one, all three albums from todd bodine have been great. forms however, is perhaps the most complex and mature album that the berlin producer and dj has accomplished to date. and its also out with us! todd has worked at full speed over the last six months to bring us this fine piece of work.

STEAM CIRCUIT (CD)
cd D 23.09.08
berlin wonderboys mitte topseller and local uberheroes format b with their first album and in best shape. >steam circuit< comes with a lot of pressure and fun, but is by all means everything else than just a load of hot air. franziskus sell and jakob hildenbrand did allways stand out with their highly energetic tracks, strongly orientated on the club without loosing musical integrity, funkyness and the joy of playing around. their releases >like a techmachine< or the extrem successfull ep >bronson road 69< used to be little milestones in floorfriendly minimal techno and highgrades label history. from the dark bouncing >edding 850< to trips into more acid-like areas with >boot cut< or the easy rollin stuff >like a techmachine< towards a point when vocals come into play, format:b go one step further. as with >si pero no< which has the clear potential to hit the scene like >hay consuelo< did. in cooperation with jake the rapper in >something suitable< - where they combine their trademark sub-basslines with hypnotic sounds and deliver in combination with jakes vocals, the perfect instant-clubbanger. all in all, its a wild ride on the zeitgeist of clubsound, powerfull tracks which seem to never loose their breath. an extensive autumn clubtour will drop the whole tour do funk life, catch them if you can
