LOVELAND 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION (2X12 INCH LP)
2x12" Vinyl D19.05.15
loveland are one of the longest running quality event promoters of the netherlands. as music has always been their reason to live it made sense to launch a record label after 20 years in the business. most artists on this release have a special bond with loveland built up over many years of performing at their events and in some cases from the very start of their carreer. the vinyl showcases 7 exclusive tracks on two 12?discs. from the bright and melodic sounds of egbert, vince watson, arjuna schiks and dosem to the repetitive hypnotizing grooves of mathew jonson, anthony rother and aril brikha this release covers a wide scope of quality music.
tel avivs deep a & biri and iran-born producer aril brikha will unite on a forthcoming 12inch on deeps & biris black crow label, from which proceeds will be donated to a israel/palestine peace projects organization.
this is a special pre-release from the upcoming album by estroe called >comfort and closure<. this album will be released the 14th of november and we wanted to do something special to celebrate it. thats why estroe asked two producers who she admires a lot to make their interpretation of two tracks from the album, called >sustained illusion< and >ouf of my comfortzone<. both aril brikha and ray kajioka did an excellent job. we are excited about to launch the new estroe album and hope you enjoy this special release.
uneasy me signals the first artist to feature original music on art of vengeance. australias electronic export, christian vance, delivers a title track with both tension and dancefloor romance. pursuing a restless path, the rhythm and melody come together like an intimate rendezvous caught in the headlights late at night.
definition of d is a little tribute to detroit, the city that influenced and later embraced my music in the mid/late 90s. this ep is an attemt to make music that is closer to the sound that i started out making but still different from the old detroit releases. high tech soul and is hopefully the key here. available on vinyl
it has arrived: wolfskuil records big, big summer tune of 2012! arjuna schiks epic hua hun will be unleashed onto the masses and incudes two amazing remixes from melodic wizards aril brikha and applescal.
originally from the usa and now relocated to valencia spain, eric estornel is making incredible leaps and strides releasing some of the most devastating yet unique music in the industry. his sudonyms maetrik, mariel ito, plaex, and now maceo plex are under great demand for the rich dynamic production and unique blend of techno, house, funk, and electro that only eric can devise.
the winter saga continues this being the second release on art of vengeance, aril takes yet another turn in style, or rather back to the sound of the winter ep that was released on kompakt in 2007. the title track is is a journy in melodies built in layers, trying to fit as much melodies in one track without going over the line. maybe it is over the line? tundra is a bit more on the rough side but with arps and chords coming in and out while glacär/for minou strips things down a bit to a more bassier and warmer sound with string/chords, less melodies and more groove
GROOVE LA CHORD (DEETRON, OCTAVE ONE, JORI HULKKONEN RMXS)
12" Vinyl D06.12.10

new years deal - 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.
vinyl box-set limited to 500 copies + includes the compilation on cd - time is running and it seems like we just woke up out of our interstellar sleep-mode as we are facing the arrival of the 14th edition of the almighty cocoon recordings compilation.

we are more than happy to present the second part of the remixes of kollektiv turmstrasses rebellion der träumer album. the first part with interpretations by jimpster and robag wruhme already created a big buzz and we hope to continue like this with the uneins remixes by our scandinavian connaisseur darlings of norway and living legend aril brikha. the a-side of part 2 features a version of uneins by our oslo based homies and connaisseur protégés of norway. they take the original parts and blend them according to their own voodoo-tech vision. the result is both catchy and extremely danceable. the b-side offers one of the rare remixes by swedish techno soul wizard aril brikha who delivers an epic monster. is is techno? is it house? is it deep house? it is everything and nothing. but one thing we know its simply timeless! expect more remixes in 2012

mit traumwandlerischer sicherheit schlägt lawrence einen bogen über 16 jahre gelebter clubgeschichte, ohne dabei das akustische hier und jetzt aus dem auge zu verlieren oder auch nur eine spur in anachronistischer nostalgieseligkeit zu verfallen. stattdessen gehen unter seinen sensiblen händen meilensteine des minimierten deep house wie >forever monna< von chez damier, ron trent und stacey pullen (1995) oder der 99er clubhit >overcome< von thomas melchior/baby ford mit kontemporären intensiven detroit-techno-hommagen wie smallpeople & raus >life aquatic<, delano smiths >my life< oder pigons traumhafter >koto<-dubtech-romanze von der 10 jahre dial-compilation auf wunderbare weise zusammen. außerdem mit dabei sind so bekannte namen wie aril brikha, isolée, das ifach collective und robert hood, bevor roman flügels auf duran durans >save a prayer< basierendes meisterwerk >brian le bon< und das kristalline >oi< von plaids klassikeralbum >not for threes< (warp) den wehmütigen schlussakkord setzen. lawrences mix atmet hier jedenfalls die gelassenheit eines lichtdurchfluteten sonntagmorgens zwischen modernistischer großstadt und waldlichtung und gibt so seinem globalen künstlerischen ansatz die passende dimension
