do yourself a favour and dance across the floor when listening to the new jacob korn-record. aptly titled son of gx. the music is heavily based on the good old yamaha electone organ. the home organ for the world s gentlemen was modified by jacob himself and is now an integral part of his studio. as you ll hear it on the ep. it injects a decent dose of fun into jacob s vision of house music. at least. you will instantly notice that when listening to singlefinger chord. a track that conquers the floor with its disco elements. rumours say that jacob s cat toddled on his poor man s yamaha cs80 when producing cats on organs. if that s true. the cat provided an irresistible hook to an already slamming. italo-inspired track. son of gx is every bit as compelling as the first two tracks with its synth trumpet glory while the slighty darker fun blocks sustains us with heavy percussion works straight out of the yamaha electone organ. on top. you ll get a remix for singlefinger chord by new york s jacques renault (let s play house) as digital bonus.
just a few months after its first release. nitsa traxx comes back with a very special 12”. the project started with a file exchange between eduardo de la calle and ferenc. they decided to work each track on their own side using only a few isolated sounds from the other. this way none of the tracks could never be treated as a full original. but proper remixes of tracks that never existed. building an uncanny. almost dreamlike emotion. a side is for ferenc’s “parón largo”. where synthetic strings are omnipresent and time and space unbends. evolving to an anticlimax where an eerie vocal and the longest possible drop are the leading trademark. a never ending and emotional standstill that goes deeper than the mariana trench. eduardo de la calle uses his distinctive signature sound in the b side. “cloaking tech d fly d” is an obsessive yet beautiful track that reminds us of the somewhere in detroit series. this is a mental and heart-warming tribute to the motor city sound that just a producer like eduardo could do. next releases are on the corner already. and we can’t wait to share them with you.
for their second release on the label. dgtl records asked another one of its festival shows regulars: fort romeau. after playing at three different dgtl editions. and an upcoming fourth during ade. the organization also wanted to propagate his sound with an ep on their imprint. the release consists of two multi-layered compositions. untitled ii and a familiar place. and will be available on the 13th of october.

if psychic health s self-titled debut album took the lessons the la duo learned in the teeming clubs of berlin and melbourne. their latest lp. exclusion. look inward. a document of the duo tunneling down the studio wormhole. as such. exclusion is a remarkably dynamic effort. adeptly jumping between evocative ambience (-jamaica 88.- -ryso-) and equally expansive dance floor fair. examples of the latter. such as the album s obvious centerpiece and titular track. exclusion. document gabriel mounsey and devon steffens’s harnessing modular beast technology for peak techno utility. finding a clear thoroughfare between the soaring strings of derrick may s classic transmat releases and ostgut ton s current ebm-inflected precision. as you d expect from mounsey s background in film composition. exclusion whirls with imagery. it s a los angeles album. but focuses on raw beauty of the city at night—the lights in the distance. and the desolate downtown streets where kickdrums often waft from disused warehouses. while their debut album opened notable doors for the group. landing distribution from hard wax and featuring in the netflix series sense8. exclusion is an altogether masterful turn for psychic health. their complete studio immersion easing the listener into deeply hypnotic states.
alvin toffler war überwältigt. als er am morgen des 4. oktober 1988 – es war sein 60. geburtstag – mit noch etwas abwesendem blick in eine schale cornflakes starrte. glaubte er. in der oberflächenstruktur der gelblich schimmernden milch. die mit ahornsirup eine emulsion bildete und die knusperkristalle der maisflocken langsam. aber unumkehrbar immer weiter zersetzte. wie durch ein fenster in eine zeitlose dimension schauen zu können. toffler. zu jener zeit auf dem zenit seines ruhms als zukunftsforscher angelangt. war von dem blick ins extratemporäre guckloch nachhaltig verstört. in keinem seiner bücher – „future shock“ war soeben in einer weiteren auflage mit dem stolzen zusatz „more than 5 million copies in print“ auf dem buchtitel erschienen – sollte er das erlebnis jemals erwähnen. auch nach seinem tod ende juni 2016 konnten im nachlass bisher keine ausführungen zu dem vorfall gefunden werden. die von toffler in später geschredderten notizen so getaufte „flake dimension“ bleibt ein geheimnis von opaker. schwer zu fassender strahlkraft.

fort romeaus second outing for running back is another exercise in dance floor synthesis. starting where its predecessor saku left us with the green shimmer of a fairlight. emulators you might have guessed it greets us with the grey realism of an e-mu ii. purchased first by none other than stevie wonder. immortalised in ferris buellers ode to absenteeism and the original loon sampler. there is nothing this machine cannot do for you the same goes for fort romeau. his disco-informed. trance-induced tracks that usually end on a high note. are elevated by ambient soundscapes that end with a bang and sugarcoat your warm-up slots. while bird-heavy bonus beats that stand up on their own or help you out in the mix. nice like a stick of liquo-rice.

roman producer (and a force behind minimalrome label) valerio lombardozzi known as heinrich dressel returns to barba with a second release for our label. titled -the styx swamp-. heinrich has a unique way of combining classic techno and electro sounds with elements from the beloved drexcyan universe and john carpenter leitmotifs. and making them come together in a manner that both moves your body and pushes your mind beyond the point of awareness. as with the previous record. -lurking underwater-. here he pulls off the move with the same efficiency and without sounding like he s repeating himself. -gray slope-. -sailing the nether waterways- and -the styx swamp- are all quite moody and deep. rich with sound and thick with vibe. however. the tracks feel equally at home in 4 am techno situation and a heady afterhours affair. he truly is a master of crafting hybrids whose influences get so flawlessly embedded that it s hard to point them out. if that s not enough. -the styx swamp- got a treatment by nigel rogers aka perseus traxx. a multi-faceted producer and a mighty live act performer. nigel stayed respectful to the original but made the original s bouncy groove into something more direct and reduced. while retaining the same feel conditioned by lead synth s hypnotic quality. we re known to give a little bit of extra love to our releases so (as all before) this one s pressed onto a heavy duty 180 gram vinyl and beautifully packaged in an original artwork by emaemaema.
after the three-track time enough at last. antigone returns with ostinato for token75. as a project. the record is thematically accurate. adhering to its titles suggestion on both sides. the tracks play with layering techniques. gradually building a spectrum of sound around their respective persistent motifs. antigone shifts these insistent base elements. allowing them the foreground before masking within a blend of carefully processed and organic-sounding details.
children are laughing and playing in the back. a baby screams happily: handsome field recordings welcome the listener to the final chapter of fred p’s fp-oner trilogy for mule musiq. the opening tune is called smiles. so children s laughter fit the mode. the idea is that smiles and cries are natural for children and as they grow to adulthood the reality becomes more. therefore the duality of life itself is obvious in the mood of the song. the new york city native that is working on his very own music for almost 20 years explains about the beginning of his new album that features eleven tunes for deep meditative club use and beyond. it brings the listener house music full of cosmic realities. odd jazzing moments. japanese spoken word pop. synth spheres for ambient use and an overall outer-national atmosphere. that handsomely dances between roughness and subtle tuned in deepness.
after the huge success of their first collaboration. doorly and el prevost are back for part two: this time the world touring doorly serves up a hot original that gets remixed by red rack‘em and el prevost. while el prevost also serves up an original of his own. all on his own no speakers label. the first ep. featuring a lee foss remix. got support form the likes of paco osuna. solomun and groove armada and this second instalment is set to be just as big this summer. doorly is a dance heavyweight who headlines clubs like space ibiza on his global travels. releases on cajual. hot creations and dirtybird and is no stranger to hitting high places in the charts with his big and infectious sounds. as a dj he is energetic and can make a mark on any dance floor. and so will this new tune. ’sonder.’ it is six superbly deep and atmospheric minutes of warm. rolling drums and searching synths that bring an intergalactic feel next to twinkling keys. jostling percussion brings a little loose funk and the whole thing is sure to lock in dance floors. el prevost then steps up to remix after 15 years of putting out killer cuts on labels like third ear. his music has made its way into the record bags of tastemakers like steve bug. dj hell and steffi and this excellent remix shows off his singular style again. it is a little tougher and more energetic than the original. with sprinkled hits. rumbling bass and pixelated synth lines dancing about up top. then comes red rack‘em. the bergerac boss who had a huge hit with ‘wonky disco bassline banger’ last year. it was one of the tracks of the year and has been followed by an equally brilliant album by this esteemed house veteran. his remix here is big. bouncy and off kilter thanks to its coarse hi hats and punchy rubber drums. great vocal treatment adds more wonkiness and broad synth strokes flesh things out into another sure-fire party starter that sounds like little else. last but not least. el prevost offers up a solitary state mix of his own ‘temper mental’. it’s a hugely inventive track with great synth modulations burrowing deep into your brain as dancing hi hats and whirring bass encourage you to cut loose and shift freaky shapes. this is a strong ep that really packs a punch across four standout tracks.
german music genius l.s.g. aka oliver lieb throws up a nice little surprise for us with brand new remixes of his famous 1996 cut netherworld. first appearing on his second studio album - volume two - netherworld quickly became a firm favourite around the world. and now in 2017 we get a glorious re-mastered version and three superb mixes all on a quality vinyl pressing.

hamburg’s fine impro-trio treibgut blesses us with a wonderful ep this summer. after a brief hiatus the three boys have refined their trademark sound even more - sitting confidently somewhere between techno. house and melodic electronica. while treibgut’s shows normally are almost ethereal snapshots due to their improvisational nature. we were able to convince them to hold down two of their finest results on tape. the outcome is a two-track ep - complemented by spot-on reinterpretations from two early supporters of our label: iorie and the duo peng peng. one remix convinces with a straight-forward club approach while the b-side is a bit more mellow and relaxed.

the second volume of the bld remixed series is here. once again. original tracks previously released have been revisited by artists that support the label since the beginning. in such good shape nowadays. oliver deutschmann delivers an outstanding remix of acid on mars pushing the limits of warehouse techno & jackin house faded with warm & hypnotic detroit chords and space-pads. as the name indicates. minneapolis legend freddy fresh delivers an ethereal mix of before deep full of nostalgic dreamy synths reminding us of his 1995 return to phantazia vibes. last one is coming from prolific asok bringing a raw and banging rework of be apart based on 808 electro beats & breaks combined with a crunchy bassline.
someone outside takes us on a journey into space with three pieces of shimmering and emotive techno. constellation opens the ep with a broken rhythm. sizzling hats and shimmering chord stabs. forbidden planet mixes driving percussion patterns with a deep pads. lost city resolves the ep with an energetic bassline and arpeggio hook.
der französische trackbastler sebastien bouchet ist bekannt für seinen hang zu tiefem. exzentrischem techno und house – und seinen ruf nur selten etwas zu veröffentlichen. seine rückkehr zu kompakt unter neuem projektnamen sebastopol ist deshalb ein ganz besonderer leckerbissen. datiert doch sein letzter eintrag ins grosse kompakt-buch ins jahr 2014 zurück. als er die hochgelobte speicher 77 (kompakt extra 77) ins rennen schickte.
dementsprechend sind die erwartungen hoch und zahlreich. werden allerdings mehr als befriedigt mit der neuesten scheibe gahalowood welche bouchets talent für ungewöhnliche ohrwürmer mit einem kraftvollen drang zum tanzflur synchronisiert.
titeltrack gahalowood bringt den fluss schnell ins rollen. dank einer stoischen kickdrum und drängelnden synthies – aber es sind diese vocals. die einen wirklich in den strudel hineinziehen und von atmosphärischen tupfern zur lautstark gehauchten hymne ausarten. getränkt mit all der matten romantik einer 80er welleband.
auf der kehrseite scheint flash pool ähnlich investiert in die menschliche stimmgewaltlosigkeit und mischt das intime groovegeflüster in den vordergrund – nimmt dann aber eine unerwartete wendung in psychedelisches kuhglockenterritorium. wo wilde bleeps auf den wiesen umherstromern und hooklines auf den seltsamsten bäumen wachsen. zum abschluss präsentiert heaven einen vergleichsweise geradlinigen house-bogen. kommt aber nicht umhin einiges an vertrippter güte zu erschnüffeln – in jedem fall dürfte der durst aufs klangabenteuer hier vollstens gestillt werden.
pt.ii sees tale of us collaborating with ovend. a french producer whose only prior output is a pair of eps for amandra s ahrpe label. mathew jonson. hunter/game and keith carnal are also among those making their afterlife label debut. while recondite. woo york and aether are back after previously appearing on the label.
two years after the milestone somewhere compilations. something happening somewhere is commemorating the times that have passed. returning with a new chapter in the series. selecting unique pieces of artists known and less known. the somewhere series continue their sound based confessional. telling unheard stories. exposing unseen surfaces and unheard sounds.
somewhere iii is set to be released as two vinyl samplers. with a selection of the tracks featured in the full digital compilations. which will feature four extra digital only tracks. a host of familiar sohaso figures make an appearance. but there is also room for new faces like aril brikha. kaap. ripperton in his stunning collab with love over entropy. equus. tracey and mulder. every artist on this somewhere iii compilation is expressing their unique experience through sound waves. telling stories and uncovering a piece of themselves. there are things radiating in the violet fog. waiting to be discovered. journeys that are worth making. but will not necessarily provide any more answers. something is happening somewhere. once again. love over entropy teaming up with ripperton. could we wish for more? it felt like a dream team combo before we even heard the resulting beauty of saints de glace. inspired by those last nightly frosts of spring days in may. it sounds exactly like those contrasting temperatures and feelings. down tempo organic grooves and a drifting melody that ebbs in and out of consciousness provide disparity with the glimmering pads that lure in the night air waiting to catch you off guard.
thanks to &me s latest and quite attention getting contributions to the keinemusik catalogue. there might be certain speculation in the air about what contentual path his upcoming material might chose. well. speculate no more. the new tracks are in.

in a spontaneous way. sanfuentes records releases have been offering different overviews about latin américa: the street-tour that mijo took us into the incomparable ciudad de méxico. the peep into santiago’s idiosyncratic and sexy nightlife by román & castro or the nostalgia and psychedelia from patagonia’s isolation that rous portrayed in his “silencio carmesí” release. “visiones”. sanfuentes’ new ep. comes from a similar place. it reflects on the continuously ongoing cultural cross-pollination happening in latin américa. a phenomena that brings unity and topples political. social and spiritual borders.

in spaces. composed by the brussels based producer haring. talks about what is living between several spaces and places. the feeling of having several homes and the ability to appropriate these spaces. haring has indeed composed this album between brussels. paris and istanbul. the encounters. the anchoring and the discovery of these cities come together in these ten titles which are each in their own way an ode to these cultures which opened new musical perspectives for him.

we were very happy to be asked by connaisseur recordings if they could put out another album with our music! now it s all come together and they ve asked us to do our own press release for it and quite like the album. we want to do it in our own way. personal and from the heart. it s been a few years since our last connaisseur album. and a lot has happened since. we ve built a new studio. matured musically. acquired new gear. sold old gear. done a lot of gigs. lost faith in music and regained it again. the process of making the loneliest man in space (this album) was a genuinely pleasant experience. as we never really set out to make an album at all. we didn t conceptualize or have any grandiose plans. we simply enjoyed ourselves in the studio. inspiration was running high. so we focused on making a lot of music uninterrupted. rather than signing tracks. which left us with quite a bulk of unsigned material. the idea to release these tracks as an album came from our friend alex. at connaisseur. we instantly jumped on the idea. listened through the material. taking some tracks out and composing a few new ones. to make it sit more together as a whole. we tried to come up with a title that would ft the feeling of the sum of tracks and settled on the loneliest man in space. as the album. to our ears. sounds a little melancholic and a little spacey. we sincerely hope that you enjoy the album either as a listening experience. a dance experience or something in between!
