label honcho bloody mary returns to the helm for the 34th release on dame-music, two original tracks knockout and no feeling is final are backed with a huge remix from none other than berghain resident, label boss & renowned producer marcel fengler. alien electronics, ominous pads and a heavy dose of acid craft unmistakably analog cuts that tread the line between electro and techno. ‘knockout stretches across the a-side, a pulsating, incessant acid line snakes its way about the raw 909 drums, tweaked and breaking in a series of hat and crash rolls reminiscent of classic chicago joints. on the flip, marcel fengler masterfully re-imagines knockout in to a driving percussive, workout, subtly adding and removing elements into a hypnotic, frenetic cut worthy of the dance floor. finally, no feeling is final slows the pace, haunting metallic strings rise and fall between twisted circuitry, an emotive number that could just as easily warm the crowd early as it could jerk tears at close. dj support: marcel dettmann laurent garnier maceo plex / maetrik kiki bpitch control orde meikle erol alkan luke slater jonas kopp chris liebing richie hawtin monika kruse james zabiela

since decadence in june 2010 and seven eps released this year, dame music is a continuous story of success and has established itself in the underground music scene. the triumph of bloody marys >arabesque< ep on national radios was a turning point for the label which has defined its musical identity, a modern genre of electronic music blended with a touch of rock, disco, classic or new wave influences. last hits sierra sams >queen of spade< ep and komatons >dehunt< ep are an excellent representation of the dame-music signature. the artwork of the label has also seen a significant evolution by the quality of its covers and teasers which fully fits with the music. to celebrate its first anniversary and give a first overview of the label imprint, dame-music is proud to present potluck, a special compilation of unreleased tracks, produced by five duos (one of the dame-musics artists, plus one of their friend). bloody mary got this concept to gather the dame-music family (mostly consisted by marys berlin based artists and friends) to work hand in hand with the music and artwork. they shared talent, creativity, emotions and ideas.
