dawn dissevers the earth and skies, dragonflies twirl into the light of the suns world no vapour dims the air, twinkling lightness buoys the eyes, during the night i can see leaves flying on the tree branch and settle like tiny butterflies.

nice price deal !!! following our quest for inventive approaches within the sometimes tired and highly commodified house / tech house / techno / minimal or whatever you call it scene, we ve gone this time for landesvatter. regardless of having already signed a few full lenght lps on the highly esteemed normoton as well as on under_line and others, joachim landesvatter prefers to keep a low-key atittude. he offers us two great tracks, each one followed by a very special remix. the original of nome is a highly bouncy digitech house track for the dancefloor, with an infectious sinewave to keep you hooked from beggining to end. the remix of nome, in charge of arp aubert (marco niemerski aka tensnake & stephan lorenz) who run the great mirau musik, comes on the form of a hysterical dub house track that literally puts >the roof in the air<. we recommended for full effect to keep the volume on the red. as usual, the second half of the release follows at a quieter pace. hausse is a track on a out to lunch tradition, greatly influenced by detroit but at the same time distancing itself from the current plethora of nostalgics. in-house duo taron-trekka closes the package with a deep remix, rich on freaky jazz touches. we lack words to describe it.
aaaron is a producer that s been on our radar for a long time. as demonstrated by his beautiful and stripped back recent work for connected, aaaron s tracks have developed a certain maturity that has become impossible to ignore. following that signature style, the grooves on black arp, his debut ep for yoshitoshi, flow smartly from his experiences in berlin s minimal techno/tech house scene. never too abrupt or intense, black arp and keep doin it are versatile tracks for many different atmospheres and set styles. like much of his music, the percussion throughout features elements of tribal house, producing a playful energy and an extra level of accessibility. additionally, we re very excited to welcome dj t., another respected berliner who really needs no introduction, to the label for the first time. he gives the ep a rough edge with this remix of black arp. the distorted synth leads and stabs here filter in and out over a driving tech house groove, giving the release a peak-time option for those in need.
2015 repress. its been four years since my last own ep on stockholm ltd. the main reason for this is that i have been surrounded by music that has inspired me much more than my own. this ep was written and produced with strict narrow frames and a huge amount of frustration. i was tired of waiting for the inspiration to kick in, then suddenly it appeared with a strength that i havent felt for long time. im now curious for more. while sketching the title track, >wyatt arp<, i couldnt get detroit legend, terrence dixon, out of my mind. terrence is a long time hero of mine, and an artist that always stays on the true side of what we do while most of us occasionally leave our paths. i had to ask him to do a rework. / par grindvik

inklusive seinem deb?t -causers of this- (2010) hat chaz bundick als toro y moi in nur f?nf jahren vier alben herausgebracht. 2011 kam -underneath the pine-, 2013 -anything in return- und 2015 -what for?-. dabei jagte ein konzert das n§chste. kein wunder, dass sich bundick immer ausgelaugter f?hlte. und dann war da noch der eindruck, seine k?nstlerische identit§t w§re ihm abhanden gekommen. das ganze st?rzte den musiker in eine schwere pers¸nliche krise: -i felt as though i no longer knew what it was that i actually wanted and needed in and out of life, and at times i felt unable to even tell what was real.- gl?cklicherweise fand bundick wieder zur?ck ins leben und die realit§t. mit dem -trick-, den musiker einfach am besten beherrschen: bundick verarbeitete seine angstst¸rung in neue songs. ein dutzend sind es geworden. und wenn man diesen lauscht, mag man gar nicht glauben, dass sie eine so schwere geburt hatten - der -meister des chillwave- hat sein h§ndchen f?r l§ssig-frische kl§nge nicht verloren. ausgehend von der idee, den raum zum klingen zu bringen, standen ihm k?nstler wie travis scott, daft punk, frank ocean, oneohtrix point never, kashif und gigi masin bei den aufnahmen konzeptionell zur seite. famos!
