jono ma (of jagwar ma) and angus gruzman (of dreems. die orangen) present “the dreemas”. recorded between their studios in industrial north london and the rogue outskirts of berlin. the dreemas is an electronic cryogenic stasis of two life-long friends in varying states of crisis. conversion and transcendence in the year 2017. two minds and hearts coalesced into an ocean of sound. the groundwork formed with over a decade of instinctive studio sessions. sweat-riddled dj conferences. and shoulder-to-shoulder dance dos in clubs. pubs and dusty down under doofs. they’ve spent endless hours together at the bottom of salty oceans gazing up at alien aquatic life forms. for years they’ve shared synthesisers across continents. exchanged records. lived together. flown together and bleed together. and at long last they have signed a contract that says they will “techno together”. the past presents the future. and the future presents the past on this soul-state snapshot of 2 friends encapsulated in the epoch of a 12”.
optimo music don’t generally do limited edition releases but when the golden filter did these extra mixes of “end of times”. the a1 track off their recent ep we thought they were too good to remain in the digital domain so have pressed up a small run of 12” singles aimed specifically at djs. the original single version is a future synth classic. these new dub versions take it to the dancefloor and have been tried and tested around the world over the last few months. they are considerably extended. dubbed out and add extra dynamics & ecstatic synth power with hints of the original vocal. there is a slo mo version at 103 bpm and a faster version at 118bpm which means the track should work any time from warm up to peak set. there is also a drone-apella version included too.

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.
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.

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.

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.

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!

behutsam torkel ich durch die nacht. einsamkeit wird oft verkannt. schatten sind treue weggefährten. dunkelheit legt sich über die schultern. derweil grelle lichter gierig nach dem himmel greifen. ein behagliches gefühl umschliesst den leib. gedanken vollführen ihre kapriolen. mal fassbar. bald flüchtig. verloren gehen ist ein geschick. distanzen sind inexistent. grenzen werden unwirklich. hiding’s tiring. heilt: innere unruhe. melancholie. entschlusslosigkeit. raubt den blick fürs wesentliche. hiding’s tiring (dreems remix). forciert: wandel. zerstreutheit. sehnsucht. lässt dich fragend zurück. zirkelprint. hilft bei: zaghaftigkeit. trübsinn. ressentiments. am besten serviert mit campari auf eis. zirkelprint (markus kenel & nico sun remix). befreit von: einsilbigkeit. trivialität. bequemlichkeit. ein später abend am frühen morgen.

mit der ersten ep *metamorph* wird auf die drastische wandlung der beiden musiker verwiesen. die wie das gestein ihre zusammensetzung und musikalische intention unter hohem druck neu erfanden. dabei zeigt die doppelsingle den dualismus dieser wandlung: *genesis* beschreibt die schöpfung des neuen künstlerischen wesens und die entstehung eines neuen klangkosmos - *jericho* dagegen beschreibt musikalisch die dafür notwendige gewalt und den konsequenten willen alte gedankengebäude niederzureißen und durch die zerstörung des alten die entstehung des neuen zu ermöglichen.
