jonny nash (guissian curve / melody is truth) and firecracker s lindsay todd get barefoot and turn out a stunner of an lp. over the course of twelve compositions we find the pair utilising their recordings in a whole host of ways. avoiding the well-trodden cliches of the exotic and instead attempting to achieve a personal interpretation of the flora. fauna and climate of the island. spending time amidst the insects. rice fields and scorching sun. the pair gathered a library of found sounds which were then taken back to a studio space to be stretched. mangled and manipulated alongside a variety of electronic and acoustic instruments. the outdoor studio itself became a living instrument. with the duo setting up multiple microphones for durations of up to 12 hours around the space. layering and processing the results in tracks such as fauna mapping and a series of small frogs
paal is passionate about hardware - analog drum machines. synths and pedals are tracked through a mixing desk. raw and unedited. imperfections intrinsic to this process are essential to him and give his sound a unique character - warm. organic and. at times. lo-fi and grainy. this can be heard throughout the ep. the voi 011 also marks a shift in cover artwork as voitax departs from the utilitarian. hand-stamped labels of the first releases - german photographer nina roders. has conceptualised a series of her unique photographs for the forthcoming ten-part ep series.

from the redwood forests of big sur and the industrial warehouses of downtown los angeles comes pfeiffer. a label dedicated to quality and a diverse musical output. pfeiffer follows in the footsteps of labels such as svek and kompakt. known for releasing a wide range of techno and house with a common thread of unique and unpredictable energy. looking to bring this type of eclectic curation into the modern era. pfeiffer draws inspiration from the raw simplicity and effortless magnetism of its namesake location on the central coast of california. february 9th marks the release of pfeiffers first musical offering. a-side big tent sets the tone with raw. minimal percussion and acid tinged melodies. b-side twist brings a healthy dose of chicago and detroit influence to a track that feels colder than house. but warmer than techno. the first of many releases to come. pfe001 marks the tip of the iceberg for pfeiffer. a label which will continue to reveal itself over time.
ant orange’s third 12″. 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.
family. fish. shapes. these are only three of the many topics that stefan streck aka the micronaut recently devoted himself to within his releases on labels such as acker records or analogsoul. always with a clear line. but never intellectualising. is how the multi-instrumentalist and producer pursues his scientific curiosity in terms of sounds. his tracks are elaborate and yet danceable. sometimes they are composed minimally. sometimes they are utterly playful. within just a few bars. subtle sequences transform to energetic roller coaster rides since the micronaut loves having a game with contrasts. his newest ep on freude am tanzen proves this anew.
das selbstbetitelte album der avant-pop-musikerin sophia kennedy vom april vergangenen jahres auf dj kozes pampa label begeisterte fans und kritiker gleichermaßen. sophia kennedy gilt völlig zu recht als ausnahmekünstlerin in der zeitgenössischen musik aus deutschland. die symbiotische verbindung setzt sich nun mit der veröffentlichung einer neuen 10inch fort. inklusive zwei unveröffentlichten songs. auf der sich sophia weiterhin der handwerkskunst eines songwritings diesseits des mainstreams widmet. im zentrum von -being special- steht ein trio aus perkussivem piano-riff. streichern und handclaps. dass das herz mit der anmut eines großen cinematografischen gefühls wärmt. in kennedys version von -afraid- - einst von der all-time-underground-legende nico geschrieben - scheint eine spröde do-it-yourself-angelegenheit. doch der song entwickelt sich ausgeklügelt in kleinen schritten: sophias unverwechselbare stimme gewinnt an fülle und wird zeile für zeile dynamischer. wie sie durch wiegenlied-artige strophen schweift. -apple in the basket- schließlich ist das verschrobene schlussbild. verkörperung eines wirbelnden zirkuskarussells. das sich im verzerrenden glas eines spiegelkabinetts reflektiert und wo der ort. der eigentlich für den refrain reserviert war. der sich steigernden wiederkehr nun grotesk verzerrter orgeltöne überlassen wurde.
