coloured 12" Vinyl UK09.03.18
special request returns via gerd janson & shans studio, as they completely re-build both brainstorm and make it real across four frenzy-inducing incendiary versions custom made for sending the rave over the edge
in 2015, midland watched gerd janson close panorama bar. the way he played that night and the energy he held in the room inspired him to go home and write some music influenced by the experience. the tracks that followed was the first release on regraded. fast forward three releases, in a taxi to an airport gerd mentioned he might have some demos for the label that he had been working on with shan. what followed was a pair of tracks that perfectly encapsulate what the label is about, soundtracking the moments of the night and day when everyone on the dance floor feels like a family.
there are two things, that really set terre des pommes apart from all other labels with all their cool dj friends : a: no cool dj friends, b: the ceo himself aka saap really listens to all demos he receives, honestly.. to him running a label is all about fresh blood and unexpected new talents! even when it comes to remixers.. no wonder the lucky chaps that go by the beautiful name of schlango mango hit the jackpot when hiding a minidisc in saaps daily italian food delivery.. still chewing on spuma di pizza-schnitzel the boss called them up and made the deal.. schlango mango met gerd janson and shan at a lan party in the shire. they shared similar interests.. the rest is histology ..
*mouth* follows acclaimed lead single *giudecca* that was reworked by factory floors gabe gurnsey. now, with running back co-founder and tuff city kid gerd janson often referred to as the djs dj and his label affiliate shan on remix duties across club, instrumental, 808 culture dub and acid versions, *mouth* is set to propel ghost culture to new heights and further establish his well earned position as one of the most accomplished new acts on the musical landscape.
PRESENTS HOUSE GROOVES VOL. 1 (GERD JANSON SHAN EDIT)
12" Vinyl D27.10.16
some things just get better with age. house grooves vol. 1 mark a part in history, where a young move d felt ignited by the classic house music sounds of the day. strict rhythms and nu grooves forged masterful networks with bleeps and clonks, pianos helped synthesizing dopamine and the phuture was wide open. house grooves vol.1 embodies that special time and place with a bunch of vintage tracks saved from the abyss. respectfully edited and dusted with gloves, it features move ds sought-after magic moment i gave my love, a collaboration with mannheims house hero see-base, the bass line swing of babyphonk and a breakbeat-led remix by shan & gerd janson that tries to sound like it could have happened back them. the bottom line is: the past can make the future feel at home.
der umtriebige frankfurter dj, produzent und running back-labelbetreiber gerd janson hat sich zu einem der profiliertesten connaisseure und trendsetter der elektronischen musik mit weltweiter ausstrahlung entwickelt, was nun in einer eigenen fabric-cd-ausgabe gipfelt. auf dieser bietet janson ein stilsicheres, fabelhaft fliessendes mixset aus cosmic-disco und acid-house, das sommerliche sonnenauf- und untergänge perfekt in szene setzt.
life is like a mirror ball! the first one in a hopefully long-lived series of disco and pop influenced super sound singles on running back, comes courtesy of the unmistakeable gibson brothers. leaving their biggest wedding hits -cuba- and -que sera mi vida- to the side, the philanthropic and smile-forcing -ooh, what a life- gets an extended edit service by shan & gerd janson, who cut away some of the fat and make it fit for fun on contemporary dance-floors. the flip side sees them remixing and sandpapering -heaven- into a disco-house interbred (filters and looping mandatory). to quote john lyndon: -disco sucks? you never heard that from me.-
three years after the much-loved second volume, wankelmut is back with the third edition of his wankelmoods compilation series. it is a fine window into his unique musical mind which packs lots of moods and grooves into its standout 24 tracks.
