lange hat uns der wiener elektronikmusiker klaus waldeck – zuletzt bekannt durch sein legendäres album »ballroom stories« (2007) – warten lassen. die vorfreude ist groß und waldeck hat auch gleich eine Überraschung für uns parat: sämtliche titel wurden auf italienisch eingesungen - und zwar von der fantastischen neuentdeckung. der wiener sängerin heidi moussa-benammar (»la heidi«).
waldeck selbst möchte gran paradiso als eine »spaghetti & western« produktion bezeichnet wissen: »gran paradiso. das ist einerseits hommage an den legendären sound des italo-westerns – andererseits spürt es auch den sentimentalen klängen des italienischen canzone nach - jedoch stets mit der nötigen ironischen distanz.« »italienisch... schon die sprache klingt nach musik«
der sound des albums trägt waldecks unverkennbare handschrift. gelegentliche einsprengsel von tango. dub und reggae runden dieses abwechslungsreiche sommeralbum ab.
alles in allem: ein entspanntes sommerliches album. das man auch gerne im herbst und winter hört. um sich daran zu erwärmen.

striking out in june 2011 with his debut ep >in your gut like a knife< - a neat summary of his electronic excursions at that point - the beautifully artworked 12 inch acted as a portal into a world of daydreams. tumbling into shadows and embracing luminescence simultaneously. breeding surreal headphone-friendly landscapes. he struck a peculiar and delicate balance between otherworldly and familiarity. at times sneaking a sly glance towards the dancefloor but mostly conjuring a sense of longing and rye melancholy. ticking with a distinctive bounce and rhythm. it comes as no surprise that gang colours was raised on the bump and grind of uk garage. taking a step back from chopped n screwed rnb vocals and the swing of ukg. >the keychain collection< explores more sombre recesses within gang colours palette. the scattered technicolor synth melodies that characterised his ep are present. but softer. cosier even. weaving betwixt and between forthright piano chords and wills own vocals. >the keychain collection< eloquently captures gang colours first steps on a long road.
one-take ambient instrumental travels. composed in strict committee by the trio of kevin blagg. william suran. and dante carfagna. recorded spontaneously in rural arkansas. bulging sub-woofers lope through fissures of skeletal banjo and pitched down pedal steel. while delicately arranged basins of synth and guitar reverberate. providing a steady stream of granular epiphanies. utterly faded. yet still possessing crystalline clarity. these twelve songs continually attain summits rarely reached within the span of four-minute transmissions.

following on from her much-lauded debut album >quarantine< on hyperdub released earlier in the year. laurel halo concludes both the year and the drama explored in >quarantine< with this new single >sunlight on the faded<. where >quarantine< was dense and beatless. layered and visceral with vocals cutting through intense soundscapes. >sunlight on the faded< is energized and geometric. with lush chords built around hard. sparse drums and laurels harmonized vocals.
lol is a bit of an unusual project. its just a thing in its own right. its not for anything or anyone in particular. its just an lp made by three bored people who like music that sounds like it did before the advent of the internet. the project was recorded in the bedroom of a warehouse conversion in hackney wick (bedrooms can be incredibly creative spaces. seeing as most of us were conceived in one). they wrote about self-obsession. social anxiety. drug abuse. and failed relationships using pre-21st century recording devices such as vhs tape. 70s valve microphones. analogue synths. cheap argos catalogue guitars. and 80s drum machines.

auf den 7 tracks auf >pattern & grid world< begegnen wir synth- & vocoder-sounds. schizophrenem ping-pong-electro & nintendo-melodien. klassischem grime. bass- und drum-experimenten und schamanischen zeremonien. die maschinen / roboter / aliens sprechen. singen und erzeugen geräusche. teilweise aber auch eine eigenartige klangwärme irgendwo zwischen vintage dj premier und lee hazelwood (time vampires). entsprechend subtil-psychedelisch fällt auch das von dem bekannten designer theo ellsworth erstellte coverartwork aus. das dem vinylformat als poster beiliegt.
