es ist zehn jahre her seit der veröffentlichung von gui borattos bahnbrechendem debütalbum „chromophobia“. so wie der titel vermuten ließ. war das album mit seinen kontrastreichen minimalgrooves und den üppig gefärbten melodien ein schocker im besten sinne. ihr erinnert euch sicher noch an die hit-single „beautiful life“. eine dancefloor-hymne aus dieser zeit. nach vier alben und unzähligen eps und remixen ist das einmalige savoir-faire des brasilianischen produzenten. aus vielfältigen singles und features stimmige alben zu schaffen. auch auf seinem fünften studioalbum „pentagram“ zu hören. hier legt gui boratto ein zwölf-track-narrativ vor. das seine handschrift auf erquickende weise wiederbelebt. wiederbelebt wird auch die stimme von „beautiful life“ (die der frau gui borattos gehört) auf dem stück „overload“.

die vierte ausgabe der modeselektion war längst überfällig und fällt deshalb extra energisch aus. dafür sorgen viele große namen der internationalen clubszene und eine ganze reihe aufstrebender künstler: actress. rødhâd. peder mannerfelt. rroxymore. sarah farina und all die anderen setzen zwischen roughem und clever gebautem techno. kosmischen breakbeats und dub- und-bass-eskapaden die unterschiedlichsten akzente und erzeugen trotzdem einen starken. stringenten vibe. die als doppel-cd und vierteilige 12--serie erhältliche compilation enthält 17 tracks von künstlern. die zur aktuellen speerspitze in sachen anspruchsvoller dance music zählen – so sehen es zumindest modeselektor. aber wann hat uns ihr gespür je enttäuscht? wie jede modeselektion ist die vierte ausgabe kein schnödes mixtape: alle künstler wurden eigens um passende. unveröffentlichte musik gebeten. und das ergebnis kann sich sehen lassen. -wir sind stolz und fühlen uns geehrt. dass wir die compilation genau so zusammenstellen konnten-. schwärmen die selektoren. -volume 04 ist wahrscheinlich die funktionalste und eingängigste modeselektion. die wir bis dato gemacht haben
extraordinary pieces of music have long stood in direct correlation to the physical surroundings that inspire them. when oliver koletzki and niko schwind packed up their berlin studios last april to spend a month locked away in a cottage nestled in the stunning nature of cape towns noordhoek area before heading to afrikaburn. little did they know that its long beaches. dramatic mountain views and the heritage of its indigenous people would have such a profound effect on the club-ready sound they had championed with a string of eps and live-performances since 2015. the result of four weeks of geo-cultural stimuli and creative experimentation culminated in the album noordhoek. released in may 2018 on stil vor talent. while the productions on noordhoek display the same on-point sound design of previous oliver koletzki and niko schwind releases. the impressive emotional depth and electronic floor-focus of its twelve tracks effortlessly merge with complex rhythmic textures to form a contemporary narrative on ancient dance rituals. after a roller coaster ride through twelve versatile yet coherent productions. one thing is certain as the ultimate crack of thunder crashes down on noordhoek: south africa fuelled the creative energy of two remarkable musicians. who where able to translate the abundance of their impressions into a truly original world of sound.

!k7 are pleased to announce forest swords as the next curator of the ever essential dj-kicks series. following acclaimed albums on ninja tune and tri angle. soundtrack and installation work. and remixes of the likes of bjork. matthew barnes aka forest swords has curated a 25-track compilation that draws a line between past inspirations and his current peers. like much of his own output. his dj-kicks skirts around pristine electronics and embraces more organic textures: 80s post punk (anna domino. dead can dance). classic 90s british electronica (orbital. mira calix). and smokey digi-dub (rhythm & sound). all rub up alongside some of the most forward-facing producers working today (demdike stare. laurel halo. fis). the compilation sifts through rhythms. shifting speeds and emotions: from pop icon neneh cherrys primal thudding to the zombified throb of exclusive forest swords track crow via deena abdelwaheed’s clattering deconstructions to the euphoric two-step of djrum. its a collection of tracks that feels as restlessly curious and weighty as barnes own work.
with »redsuperstructure«. robert lippok created a new foundation for his musical endeavors. now – 7 years later – this system properly comes to life on »applied autonomy«. the title of the new album is a clear indicator as to what the berlin-based producer has been up to during the last couple of years. both on a conceptual level as well as how he molds his ideas into tracks. »applied autonomy« orchestrates a certain state of frantic standstill. which occurs once a structure is set. has this state been reached. the artist is free to focus on other equally important aspects. balancing the various shades. pushing ideas even further to really make them shine and blossom in their self-declared autonomy. the more light one lets in. the more layers become visible. layers are key when it comes to understanding »applied autonomy«. big chunks of the material with which the album has been produced derive from sketches specifically made for a club performance. rather than meticulously devising each and every detail. lippok focussed instead on recording as many fragments as possible in a short period of time. elements which he could later combine and layer on stage. based on this material and his experience experimenting with it in a live environment. the album slowly began to shape. an album culminating in a collaboration with klara lewis. with whom lippok spent 2 days at the ems studios in stockholm. approaching the idea of autonomy from yet another angle. during the session. both musicians played and performed simultaneously. yet not explicitly together. lost in their own thoughts and ideas. only subconsciously taking in what the other one was coming up with. the result is »samtal«. 14 minutes of a constantly evolving state of poise. magically connecting all the dots lippok had already defined as »applied autonomy«. the artwork for »applied autonomy« has been created by the berlin-based argentinian artist luca gutierrez. over the last couple of years. he has made a name for himself with his spectacular av performances.

kuf create emotion-laden dialogues across layers of time and dimensions of sound. voices recorded in private are chopped up and brought out center-stage to sing with beats hammered out right here and now. glowing synths push forward. basslines rise to grab the melodic role of a track while a vowel is truncated and locked into a grid. driving the rhythm. voices move within the frame of a sample. performed by hands pushing keys. guided by the ear. immersed in a trio sessions deep flow… a vortex of quirky hands. responsive ears and glowing circuits. since thomas a. edison first recorded the human voice in 1877. the recording arts have changed music forever. musicians have explored the endless possibilities of bouncing their input onto layers of tape. off the walls of an echo chamber or the circuitry of electronic helpers - technology that modulates. spatializes. shifts. divides or multiplies the work of human hands and mouths. an era of sampling offered a cubistic analysis of the recorded past and djs took dancers onto intricately fractured time travels. this is the historic foundation that kuf keep probing. just like the sampler and the dj before them. they found new ways to re-allocate where machine and man stand when making music together. most importantly. they turn the resulting friction into sparkling bursts of energy. ‘universe digs deeper into the android vocal chords. the album offers sweeping melodies. different beats and persistent bass. immerse in the intimacy of the voices. probably recorded in trains. backstage areas and at late night private parties during berlin lichtenberg warehouse rehearsals. by striking the keys. kuf squeeze out and serve up all the soul accumulated in those savory phonetic shreds.

dj-mixes often do little more but keeping up a certain mood. to establish a mood like this. masterful sven väth only needs a couple of moments. but this is it not enough for the inimitable dj from frankfurt am main. väth wants to introduce us to an entire world of electronic sounds. the music is an end to itself. yet at the same time. it is more: vaeth employs it to express his passion for the whole scene. to tell about the adventures he has experienced traveling. about his love for his friends. his children. his girlfriend and particularly to his fans all around the world.

damon wild and david sumner (aka functions) relationship dates back to 1991 at lord michaels future shock. limelight. new york city when damon was running experimental records via northcott productions. at the time. he first saw something in dave and added him to brand x. a record pool run by moneypenny. but their bond is based around a period 5 years later when dave had an apartment above rogue music at 251 west 30th street in midtown. manhattan. it was during this time damon developed him as a synewave artist and released his first ep as function in the fall of 1996 catalog number sw-24. falling in and out of touch over the years. across continents. the two have somehow remained on the same cosmic path. so it’s not a coincidence that now damon has turned to dave to release his first album in 13 years. during the time he is reissuing that first synewave ep on recompiled i/ii & ii/ii (a-ton lp02/03). this is where those paths cross again. 21 years later. this fall. dave will release cosmic path on infrastructure. the cosmic connection.

say what you wanna say. but you have to give strahil velchev this: the man’s a powerhouse. recording and playing live under the kink alias. he went on to become one of finest purveyor’s of funk in techno and house. what it is. by definition. ain’t exactly clear. and that is the beauty of it. kink’s music is unifying in the best possible way. channeling the spirit and feeling of a time where it didn’t really matter who the faces behind the music were. kink plays with the elements of genres and sub-genres as if the future of it all is still wide-open. at the same time it could be accused of retro-fetishism. as much as the pope himself is infallible. the pure need to recreate moments. feelings and experience - rather than carbon copies of existing designs - was what started kink’s production work. hailing from bulgaria. it was nearly impossible to get your hands on all the records and music that fed into a system of raves. clubs and record shops that seemed far away from sofia. and financially it might as well have meant another galaxy. wanting to dj without having access to the tracks that spun the carousel meant that you had to create them yourselves. so. here we go with a private bootlegger gone public mastermind and one of the loudest voices in house. techno and beyond. from kink’s early productions with neville watson to his smash-hit for ovum. a cerebral album for macro. tons of remixes & tracks and his mind-bending live act. playground seems to take all that into a blender. simultaneously a sound-summary. the harvest of a field of ideas. and the exhibition of an artist in his prime. it also works as a sort of kink dictionary: avant-garde soundscapes stand next to boisterous bangers. classic club tracks and peak time emotions
2cd digipack + booklet - includes 21 classic tracks + 2 previously unreleased titles. review on acid jesus. the first of many collaborations between roman flügel and jörn elling wuttke. including 2 unreleased tracks! situated in germany’s then blistering techno scene and especially a mirror of frankfurt at the time (and it s holy label trinity of playhouse. klang and ongaku). flashbacks are also a feedback loop to what was happening in the uk and the usa. flügel and wuttke succeeded with their own and unique take on it. that owned as much to underground resistance and the belleville three as it did to sven väth and andrew weatherall.
extrawelt are back! although in fairness. they were never gone. on the contrary. since their first release on james holdens border community label dropped in 2005. arne schaffhausen and wayan raabe have been responsible for a plethora of classics including schöne neue extrawelt and in aufruhr. their two seminal albums on cocoon recordings. the duo are one of the most booked live acts worldwide. commanding a huge fan base. their performances are the stuff of legend. making them the absolute highlight at every club and festival they play
on limited edition compact disc. generated instinctively in the moment from resampled chunks of previous output sandwiched between unheard waveforms from a distant future whilst underwritten by voltage controlled rumblings from actual synthesisers than can be seen and touched and wrecked by roadies. traversing known knowns and unknown knowns from drone to drone. harvesting new and slightly less new artefacts of the digitaux variety and crash landing in the ghetto of the lysergic jungles visited by g@ng5tas of yesteryear. all for your personal enjoyment. performed live at the red rattler in sydney. australia on the 16th of april 2017 for the strange signals / house of mince crews. the performance is slightly more than just the insane ejaculations of an unhinged mind. but a true insight into one of the internets least popular twitter accounts.
dutch producer and live act conforce is back with autonomous . a fifth artist album and the latest in his long relationship with delsin records. conforce is boris bunnik. a producer who explores the deepest realms of dub. house. techno and electro under many different names. his conforce alias is where his most club orientated material comes from and this new nine track album finds the transcendent label boss producing dark syntheses inspired by his hometown and harbour city. rotterdam. and its automated industries. a masterfully conceptual album that really paints a vivid picture of a harbour as heard from deep down in the depths.

rodhads debut album anxious sees the artist step away from the dancefloor and further develop the narrative qualities of his beautiful soundscapes. it was the natural next step to present the sound he began cultivating with his recent eps kinder der ringwelt and söhne der erde as a full length lp. the experience the album is trying to convey is being thrown into a world that is ready to crush you.they have you with your back to the wall. and you are ready to give way to despair. will you be able fight back? how is it even possible? rodhad is the spearhead of a new generation of techno producers and djs. with his bass heavy grooves and dubby atmospheric soundscapes he is a sonic guide. knowing exactly where he wants to take the crowd. leading through the inexhaustible sounds of techno music in all its beauty and gloom. he fully immerses himself into the music. yet never loses himself. growing up in berlins rougher outskirts. as a teenager he was able to grasp the final flashings of berlins mythical nightlife of the 1990s at legendary places casino and ostgut. in the late 2000s the dystopian crew began their own series of parties and then the label with two seminal releases by rodhad. 1984 and blindness.

the trickfinger project was recorded 10 years ago with no intention of being released at the time. made purely for discovery and learning experience. -in my opinion. making music with no intention of releasing it is the best thing a musician can do for his own development in this day and age. the trickfinger lp was made in that mindset. and it was the beginning of a new musical life for me. when i hear it. it sounds like i am opening up doorways to new worlds. and i never have had that feeling listening to music i made for the purpose of releasing it and selling it.- all the music was recorded live onto a cd burner. through a cheap mixer. john would sit on a chair. in his living room. surrounded by five to 15 machines. and just keep programming and jamming until the track was ready to be recorded. there were no overdubs – recorded all live
brainwaltzeras debut lp poly-ana follows quickly on the heels of the producers aescoba ep also released this year via film. across thirteen tracks of both previously released material and fresh excursions into the artists world. brainwaltzera explores sounds ranging from luscious. downtempo grooves and expertly reduced braindance cuts with nods to early 90’s experimental idm to harder. more caustic outings all bound together by a recurring theme of otherworldly ambience. taking its name from a variety of sources dear to the artist. including polyphonic analogue synthesizers and the pol-lyanna principle itself a theory that suggests individuals recall pleasurable experience more acutely than displeasing ones the title represents a meeting point in the artistic process between creative method and conceptual choices. production techniques range from more traditional hardware synthesis to the incorporation of a modified dot matrix printer acting as a modulation source for midi parameters.

steffi occupies a unique space in the realm of contemporary electronic music. although she s a world renowned dj. steffi s musical interests reach far beyond the dancefloor. and it s her work as a producer that has established an impressive. hard-won legacy. soon after moving to berlin in 2007. steffi joined ostgut. becoming a resident at panorama bar and releasing on the club s label. to date she s released five albums. including two solo for ostgut ton. a co-production with virginia. another with analogue cops as third side and a collaboration as doms & deykers on martyn s 3024 label. her impressive discography features club classics like “ yours feat. virginia” . carefully chosen remixes and appearances on labels including permanent vacation. underground quality and mixes for panorama bar and fabric. she owns and operates four labels: klakson (with dexter). dolly. dolly deluxe and dolly dubs. world of the waking state is steffi s third solo album for ostgut ton and a musical departure for both her and the label. it s also a serious statement of intent. over ten tracks she embarks on entirely new electronic terrain for her productions. marking industrial spaces with superlunary warmth while exercising a refined knowledge of polyphony and arrangement. subdued melodies interact with each other over implied harmonies and microcosmic drum patterns. luring us into a world that is introverted. bewildering and gratifying all at once.

recognition opens up its archives and invites to a futuristic sentimental journey with respective stages set by the 9702. album contains a set of varied tracks recorded within five years after warsaw labels launch and its first release. extended compositions and short improvised sound notes resemble eccentric propositions of such labels as (early) warp or rephlex. standing next to melancholy-saturated minimalistic techno and abstract collage structures which prove out to share many characteristics of clicks n cuts movement of the second half of the 1990s. usage of human voice samples is an outstanding feature of many of these archive materials. entirety of mastered-anew content encompassing both records. contains all principal trademarks which distinguish jacek sienkiewiczs creations and his label recognition - utmost care about depth of sound sphere. experimental inclinations and focus on complex motoric aspect of the rhythmical base. this collection of music from recognition’s first five years. surprising for its freshness and sheer impetus. is a must for all fans of jacek sienkiewicz and polish electronic music of the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries. in connection with publication of yet-unheard tracks. jacek shares another slice of yet-unknown artistic vision. connecting sound with other media such as image. light and movement. recognition xx audio-video performance comes out in summer as a result of this retrospective look.
on his sixth album. the arc of tension. the berlin based dj. label owner and producer oliver koletzki yet again presents his remarkable vision of contemporary electronic music. while he assumes the role of a storyteller. the arc of tension speaks to its listener as a singular. self contained work. which communicates by way of its natural flow and arc of suspense. the latter is mirrored not only in the multifarious narrative of the actual album. but can also be understood as evidence for its creator’s long musical history. while koletzki focussed on a diverse range of vocal collaborations on his previous long players. he now moves on to a different form of storytelling. rooted in the quiet confidence of a veteran musician. as well as the hectic lifestyle of a globally in demand dj. the arc of tension is the psychonautic journey through the various continents of oliver’s consciousness. the quiet chirps and warbles. which initially unfold on the opener a tribe called kotori. thus act as a loose associative bridge to der mu?ckenschwarm. olivers big breakthrough hit of 2005. the first minutes of the album leave no room for doubt - we are immediately locked into an autobiographical world of sound that knows how to captivate from the get go. the dreamy. exotic timbres of the downbeat tracks by my side. tankwa town and byron bay penetrate our minds in a subtle yet purposeful manner. but soon the tension tightens and organic sounds one by one evolve towards a sterner. electronic cadence.
the techno revolution 30 years ago. where boundaries. walls and our own guarded natures came crumbling down? the archaic establishment-challenging attitude and forthright energy of the punks? the long-awaited eruption of gay culture that had burned and yearned since the dawn of mankind? dare you travel even further back? rewind two hundred years to the romantic revolution where men like the blitzed berloiz helped us transcend our physical limitations for suspended moments of fantastique disbelief… all of these moments have shaped us. our music and our culture. each movement comprising artists who like us right now are trying to make sense of the uncertain world. the chaotic present and the fearful future. artists like hell. welcome to the future…reflecting over his participation and contribution to myriad cultural movements since the late 70s. his passion of ever-evolving musical form and our current socialpolitical landscape. hell taps into our collective rich histories. our combined fears and our mutual desires to create his most personal. ambitious and thought provoking body of work to date: zukunftsmusik. his fifth studio album zukunftsmusik fuses some of hell’s strong signature motifs (his passion for subversion. his great kosmiche canvases. sudden throbbing bursts of dancefloor dynamism. subtle songcraft) yet it sounds unlike anything hell has ever created before. there are very few big club singles. a delicate balance of classical dramatic orchestral tension and evocative futuristic synthesis runs throughout. dark and light. hope and fear. fast and slow. day and night.over the course of one hour helmut josef geier invites you on a musical trip of a lifetime his lifetime. your lifetime. music’s lifetime.
angelehnt an ein legendäres konzert im mai 2008. bei dem das pariser symphonieorchester les siècles unter seinem dirigenten francois-xavier roth kompositionen des detroiter techno-produzenten carl craig in vollkommen neue klangsphären überführte. erscheint nun das album -versus-. das diese konzeption aufgreift und in perfektion vollendet. dabei wirkt der französische pianist francesco tristano als mediator. der craigs techno-sounds in klassische partitionen transformiert. als zusätzlicher spiritual advisor war carl craigs langjähriger freund und wegbegleiter moritz von oswald an den aufnahmen beteiligt. mit dem er zusammen in 2008 das legendäre -recomposed- album bei der deutschen grammophon veröffentlichte. traditionelle klassik-orchestrierung trifft elektronischen underground-sound.
kompakt releasing t.raumschmiere’s new. epic solo full-length heimat. it presents another side of his work which was always there. but never got that much airtime: the artist. the author. the composer with the crystal-clear sound. heimat is a stunning techno album that neither excludes ambient. nor gets reduced to constant ass kicking. it s perhaps the best recording so far from this man who asks so deeply. so extensively. so much. and at some point even answers.
