nach vier alben, die beim legendären john-zorn-label tzadik erschienen, fallen einem bei koby israelite begriffe wie eigenwillig , genial , produktiv , avantgardistisch und passt in keine schublade ein. aber letztlich ist der in israel geborene südlondoner - dessen musikalische reise vom klassischen klavier über den jazz zu speed-metal-drumming bis zum akkordeon führte - ständig auf der suche nach dem perfekten sound. und hierbei spielt es keine rolle, ob dieser von black sabbath, beethoven, bluegrass oder den rumänischen roma inspiriert ist. der sound ist dabei von eindringlicher schönheit, unterstrichen von der schwermütig klingenden armenischen duduk und einem wehmütigen akkordeon, und verbindet die liebe koby israelites zur musik des balkans und dem blues. jenseits des kantigen zusammentreffens von stilen und einflüssen - das album will nicht jedem und immer gefallen - findet man sich in einer welt wieder, die von einer einzigartigen musikalischen vision zusammengehalten wird, die gleichermaßen mutig wie kräftig, fremd wie süß ist.
mit den jim jam gems legt das label stag-o-lee eine serie mit juwelen aus der frühen r&b-geschichte auf. die songs führen in die usa, zurück in eine zeit, in der die boys in lederjacken an hausecken herumlungerten und kaugummikauend jeden passanten misstrauisch beäugten. und wenn dann mal nicht minder toughe girls in jeans und engen sweatern vorbeigingen, wurde jedes wolfsgeheul mit einem hüftschwung und einem funkelnden blick quittiert. der sound eines aufgemotzten ford, küsse in dunklen seitengassen, das aufblitzen eines gezückten messers - das ist der sound der bad boy serenade .

hello guys and gals, its been exactly one year since the first release on olsen records, so i suppose its time for a new one, now together with studio buddy lindstrøm. >inspector norse< took me to a lot of cheesy places with lots of cash, and i expect nothing less with this new one called... >lanzarote<! (pronounthed with a lithp and a finger thnap) the working title for this was >cowley<, lets see if any of you can figure out why :)... b-side remix by dj-turned-mathematician diskjokke turns down the gayness, but keeps most of the elements for a version even the most serious of the deep house mafia can play. yørs trüly, tødd tërje (and silent partner häanz-peter)

paradise club recordings are due to serve up another eclectic ep later this month – their first selection of what they have in store for 2013 – and it’s one that furthers the label’s trend of showcasing the many different styles at their disposal from their current roster.label stalwart jabru kicks things off with ‘last days of rome’, an aptly-titled cut that begins by traipsing through ambient swells and looms, only to then brew up a truly decadent, central dancehall rhythm.
usually, it’s that you’ve either never heard myka 9 or you’re given to making fantastic claims about the man and his virtuosity. superlatives adhere to myka, yet he is absurdly under-known for an artist of his stature, and it’s this paradox that too often governs discussion of his two and a half decades in rap. (a body of work, by the way, bookended by ghostwriting two songs on n.w.a. and the posse’s 1987 lp and now by this piece, sovereign soul.)
perhaps it’s simply that myka is more or less alone in the world of rap. his tonal palette is broader and brighter and his voice more liquid than other rappers, his melodic sensibility more unpredictably hard bop than 80’s pop soul—though he goes there too. and he has harder angles too—peep his compelling snarl here on the street duet, “indigenous areas,” with the elusive but excellent e-rule.

made fresh daily follow up killer 12 inches from geddes and mikki funk with the debut solo ep from rising house producer jackmaster k. though indebted to the current vogue for the sounds of 90s house, jackmaster ks productions are filled with enough unexpected twists and turns to keep the formula fresh, *house aint givin up* switches things up with its nyc electro stabs, saxophone solo and swelling sub-bass, while *get up* takes things into deeper territory with its thick bassline and dubbed out, candy sweet rhodes melodies. on the remix, james johnston flips *get up* inside out, giving it some classic new jersey bump and flex, and busying up the arrangement with added organs, while rosenhafts take on *house aint givin up* is much more expansive, allowing the bassline to breathe in a spacious composition of pitched vocals and drawn out chords.
dj agency, management company and webzine the underground add another string to their bow with the launch of their record label and first release underground fables vol.1. the inaugural outing on the underground audio imprint is an eight track taste of what the underground is all about, showcasing several of the artists they work with alongside a selection of the brightest new talents in deep and tech house, pressed on bright orange vinyl.
