JEFF OEZDEMIR & FRIENDS 2 (2X12 LP + MP3)
2x12" 13.03.18
ziemlich genau zwei jahre nach der ersten kollaborationssause aus dem märz 2015 legt tausendsassa jeff Özdemir sein zweites -friends--album vor. an diesem beteiligt waren keine geringeren als f.s. blumm, andrew pekler, halloumi express, sonja polligkeit, benjamin wild und dizzy (rotation) - wer solche freunde hat, darf sich glücklich schätzen! wie bereits auch beim ersten teil geht es bei den 20 neuen stücken drunter und drüber. jeff Özdemir, multiinstrumentalist, komponist, produzent und besitzer des berliner plattenladens 33rpm store sowie mitgründer des gleichnamigen labels, mag es seit je her bunt. wer will, kann hier 1001 einflüsse aus jazz, chanson, soul, gameboy-sounds, dub, minimal, psychedelischem wüsten-blues, siebzigerjahre-pop, klassik und john-carpenter-sounds heraushören. oder sich wundern, dass neben deutsch auch auf französisch, türkisch, japanisch und portugiesisch gesungen wird. aber das sind nur details, die für sich genommen wenig zählen. worauf es hier wirklich ankommt: die atemberaubende kombination zeit-, generations- und stilübergreifender akkorde, rhythmen und grooves besitzt ein ästhetisch rundum stimmiges klangbild, das seine volle wirkung entfaltet, sobald man sich diesem im ganzen hingibt.

GHOSTS - HANS NIESWANDT DISCOMIX
12" 09.01.18
with his 3rd album dear stranger, duesseldorf artist tg mauss appeared 2013 for the first time on berlins quality music label karaoke kalk. proving once more his skills in meshing up folk pop with electronic music, he left a big mark at hans nieswandt (whirlpool productions), who now throws the track ghosts into the club: a grooving funk bass played by levent canseven meets a rattling hi-hat and spacey soundeffects. mauss voice makes the disco ball and our dancing hearts pause for a moment, just to explode on the dance floor. thats what you call state-of-remix-art.

RIGHT THERE
12" 16.02.18
ant orange’s third 12&#8243, for karaoke kalk forms something resembling a trilogy for the label. “right there” is built on a familiar rhodes-n-bass aesthetic, combining the lo-fi jazz of 2017’s “arkupe” with the soulful vocal motifs of 2015’s “s/t”, while introducing more electronic ingredients and taking an increasingly exploratory approach to rhythm and composition. the opening title track clocks in at over 8 minutes, growing slowly from soft tickled keys to a full-bodied groove circled by airy synths and fragmented rnb vocals. “drunk in the trunk” then shifts down a gear, looping another vocal cut over a lazy, stripped-back wahwah vibe. side a closes with experimental jazz skit “let that sink in”, its jerky tempo and flashes of light reminiscent of a late-night subway ride. the b-side takes a more contemplative tone, with the meditative arpeggios and sparse drums of “comfort zone” leading into the dusky west coast stroll of “muscle beach”, before “rudis goes offline” picks up the tempo for a last shimmering dance. the closing track “a frozen lake” sounds just like it sounds – chilled by name and by nature.

ARKUPE
12" 06.06.17
following his 2015 release s/t, ant orange is back with another groove-laden 12inch on karaoke kalk. arkupe is a prime slice of laid-back beats and bass-heavy jazz breaks. each track oozes soulfulness, from the smooth-as-silk fender rhodes on the opening title track to the downbeat afro rhythms of fog walk, and the nonchalant guitar riffs and synth lines on little wing. side 1 closes with feld, a sun-drenched slo-mo house jam. side 2 presents another handful of diverse ant orange cuts, starting with the more uptempo toe-tapper big lils. lb offers more tasty jazz-n-bass drumming, while the closing track my man has a breezy still-awake-on-sunday swagger. with his latest 12inch on karaoke kalk, ant orange shows the wide range of styles he has to offer. arkupe is loaded with some of the mellowest vibes youre likely to hear all year.

OH BABE
12" 27.01.17
as a first follow up to his acclaimed 2012 jr plankton release, plankton teamed up with robert defcon and produced an astounding collage of european and afroamerican sounds, vocals and rhythms, both psychedelic and bass heavy. licensed to groove, the 5 tracks on oh babe merge the sonically improbable – highlighted by the artificial landscape of armin linkes cover photo and max da artwork. when krauts rausch (german for intoxication or noise) you know theyre onto a winner: the fresh new release opens with a sizzling drone ascending the throne of psychedelic sequencer rock. the title tune oh babe injects screwed, subtly lewd funk vocals into a slo-mo, yet ecstatic disco anthem, underscored by a pulsating filter funk bass, while bass n hippies and get up fuse deep progrock killer grooves with raunchy vocoder rap and funky turntable scratching, which will have you on your feet for sure. after a night out dancing, the final track, jealousy, evokes a scenery of solitary paranoia, both chilled out and chilling. defcon and plankton are connected by years of friendship and a dedication to minimalistic grooves and collage techniques in the tradition of stockhausen and can and the turntable and sampling culture of early hip hop.

ANT ORANGE
12" 09.11.15
following on from his releases on kolour recordings and profound, berlin resident ant orange’s latest 12“ on karaoke kalk is an innovative record packed full of diverse and lively tracks. the five tunes on the single take in an extremely wide range of styles, fusing elements of tribal drumming, funky soul, nu jazz and deep house. omi gets the ball rolling with groovy off beats and a wonky kalimba melody to get your feet tapping. yesterday is a funky dance-floor track while tunes like are you alon and the look are filled with romance and vibes under the careful guise of eclectic electronica. the track hands together brings the 12” to a close drawing inspiration from the same marlene shaw vocal sample that st germain used to such great effect on their hit rose rouge. ant orange brings a new twist to this iconic soul-jazz voice embedding it in a contemporary down-tempo groove. although originally from leeds uk, ant orange has such an mixed range of influences and styles present in his music that the result in a truly global sound. ant orange relocated to berlin some time ago where he now plays out at any opportunity, and with this new single he is again giving something back to his fellow vinyl junkies.

FLAMINGO (LP)
12" lp 20.07.15
nice price deal !!! welcome back to the movielike resonating sound world of the 23s. already in 2008 the mysterious one-man band proofed with the album “bolivia” that they are trying to do another kind of music – something that isn’t entertainment, something that isn’t show, something that goes gently straight to your soul. now the producer from nord-rhine-westphalia did it again and tuned in the longplayer “flamingo”. anew he delivers a special kind of cinematic journey music that grooves opposite to his other, more rhythm based hypnotic dance productions. also as the 23s he produces pattern-based music, but it pursues a different intention: each listener should dive into a hallucinatory world of seen and unseen films that his inner eye creates unprejudiced. all ten tracks are romantic smooth operators. they put themselves in service of an artistic vision, in which the listener should get lost in music. the album can be seen as a love-letter to the movie scores of the french 70s cinema or the impressionistic sound arrangements you can hear in the early cinema of peter greenaway. with double bass heat, discreet piano melodies, levitating guitar chords, some gentle horns here and there and beats that recollect the warm jazz influenced soul of oldschool hip-hop the 23s generate a sublime get-down-deep instrumental journey. you can listen to it attentive. or you can just play it in the back while doing whatever you like to do. it is recommended to play “flamingo” in a decent amount of volume as all loungey tracks begin to live bigger and brighter with sound intensity. if you play it flashy you will experience an atmospheric sometimes light-flooded, sometimes foggy 40-minute electronic journey that offers open-minded souls to fill the room between the notes with their very own milky fancy. soon the album will be accompanied by a bunch of remixes tuned in and twisted by producers like giegling and white artists edward, christian s of the cómeme tribe, canadian producer the mole and the german post rock and electronic music band to rococo rot.

NEW GERMAN ETHNIC MUSIC-IMMIGRANTS SONGS FROM GERMANY ELECTRONICALLY REWORKED
12" 18.11.13
in the 1970s the american composer henry flynt started a series of pieces under the title >new american ethnic music<. in so doing he worked together native styles of music such as blues, country or hillbilly with electronic production methods to make something altogether new. so far in germany it has never been attempted to rework folklore electronically for a compilation. however, this picture changes if one redefines the idea of who the population is. incomers have brought new >national anthems< to germany, which means - even the portuguese fado, the african gnawa, the croatian klapa or the vietnamese quan ho are these days at home in germany. with the cultural project >heimatlieder aus deutschland< (native songs from germany) founded by former spex editor mark terkessidis and label manager jochen kühling all the various styles of traditional folk music now found in germany has been collected. thirteen of the songs recorded for the project have now been transformed by contemporary electronic producers to present a >new german ethnic music<. but why remixes? for one thing electronic music has recently focused a lot on the past (ghost music, hypnagogic pop etc.) – electronic editing is well suited to follow the effects of the immigrant music which the >imaginary national anthems< has created. furthermore the projects instigators were curious how >electronic musicians< would handle folk music and folk songs which is a hugely difficult task. to this end artists were sought out who could get along with the idea of each music style and who are known to already have experimented with the human voice. the results are as varied as the music styles and djs involved. some melodies remain completely intact while others are abstracted beyond recognition. margaret dygas associative approach ensured that she presents a polish song about a girls arranged marriage with a claustrophobic feeling. with his remix of the marrabenta of mozambique mark ernestus has continued the rhythmic experiments he is known for with jeri jeri. thomas mahmoud translated gnawa into dub and finaly ulrich schnauss turned the song of the italian chorus of >donni so< into a hymn for the horizon-expanding power of migration.hopefully this compilation will also expand some horizons.

GOLDEN SOLITUDE (LP)
12" 11.08.09
anspruchsvolles zwischen tanz- und h¡rmusik: deb?t des ¡sterreichischen experimentalduos. experimentelles aus der alpenrepublik. ritornell nennt der ¡sterreichische komponist und soundk?nstler richard eigner seine zusammenarbeit mit seinem landsmann, dem pianisten roman gerold. das deb?t >golden solitude< changiert zwischen verspielter tanzmusik und anspruchsvoller h¡rmusik. sehr spielerisch, aber auch respektvoll erkunden ritornell die ?sthetischen errungenschaften des 20. jahrhunderts und experimentieren zwanglos mit versatzst?cken der popkultur. mit viel fingerspitzengef?hl vermengen sie akustische elemente mit elektronischen kl?ngen und erschaffen ein album, das auch nach mehrmaligem h¡ren noch an der grenze zwischen pop und avantgarde schillert. bei der tontechnischen verfeinerung dieser frischen klangemulsion wurde das duo von patrick pulsinger unterst?tzt. eigner und gerolds subtile st?cke fanden bereits einsatz in zahlreichen filmen, 2005 gewann eigner den ¡sterreichischen elektronikland-award f?r experimentelle elektronische musik.
