kris baha turns to pinkman with a standout 5 tracker blending influences and ranging from ebm, darkwave and experimental electronics. what makes them work together is a shared industrial edge, spine-chilling atmospheres and minimalistic vocals. by finding excellence in diversity this record is equally suited for boiling dance floors and home listening purposes.
after his kinfolk released collab with otologic s nick murrary, kris baha makes a welcome return to his power station creation. a versatile five track ep that will get you through the night, one pictures yello s virgin ketamine experiments on mind your head before jeff comes to the party with his mad professor dub, giving you whiplash with its belting beats and crashing guitar stabs. originally designed as an hour long opening score for the namesake melbourne club night, around you go is an edited warm up tool, the crossroad between dusseldorf and elettronica meccanica. if issued in 1983, 2 nights in armenia would have lived on as a cosmic classic while arpb is the listeners exit music, a fork hanging from the power socket.
MUESTRA (ROY OF THE RAVERS, JAMIE PATON, KRIS BAHA REMIXES)
12" Vinyl UK23.11.18
and so especial comes to its 30th release. as with the ees010 and ees020 the 12inch is given over as a sampler ep of alternate versions, dubs and unreleased cuts that deserve their time in the spotlight. again featuring a labels whos who, with fairplay, paton and baha appearing, but also new crews in vogue with roy of the ravers back, joined by the esteemed freeform five plus a debut from bal5000.
kris baha is fast becoming one of the most essential operators in the deviant disco underbelly of berlin s scene, despite having landed in the city relatively recently. baha s credentials with labels like power station and parties in melbourne are all that you need to know, and now this release on the ever mighty cocktail d amore seals the deal. baha has never sounded more confident, pinging deviant synths around nasty drum bite and channeling the gods of industrial darkness to make some rugged body music for the darker kind of dancefloor. the experimental, non-party tracks are just as wild, dealing in all manner of uncompromising noise to further bahas journey to the upper realms of sonic mud slingers

out of the buoyant melbourne house, disco and edits scene, power cuts kicks off as a sublabel of power station with label boss kris baha joined by some likeminded heads for four varied and generally far out party joints. these are after all eclectic times we live in, and power cuts reflects this by veering from jonny 5 s dense and tense -voices- to the limber afro inflections of dreems -ahead temper-. baha himself delivers the industrialized thrust of -heart of foil- and then otologic finish the record on a jolly note with the charming, synthy delights of -ballada kwasu-.

opening their doors every saturday for mind-altering shock treatment, power station has been giving their raging punters a potent dose of megawatt reality. their curatorial expertise has established an institution that will now extend the mythical energy generated with a record label in the form of annual limited 12inch compilations, grouping tracks that have already become the club s signature tunes. resident, booker and co-founder kris baha finds himself on both sides of the inaugural disc, with the ball of confusion solo production something something, and again as heavy concern in collaboration with otologic s nick murray, a name synonymous with the melbourne club circuit being one quarter of the animals dancing massive. young gun disrute captures the optimum warm up set with the shape shifting slow burner ka-bu while scene veteran and haul music boss mike callander discovers a new lab mutation of sci-fi soundtrack, damaged funk and cerebral house
pinkman delivers another sturdy record for the connoisseurs of discomforting electronics. the second 5 years of tears release unifies 6 artists, each with their own interpretation of the labels ill-famed sound, embodied in vibrating basslines, metallic beats, and corrosive acid. gear yourself up for yet more nerve-racking music and get accustomed to the obscurity of this series of releases, because the madness is all but finished.
diese platte beinhaltet stücke aus der sameheads community. novo line, twoonky, kruton, kris baha und antoni maovvi und balance crew alias dane close & l. zylberberg. sechs acts, deren schweiß auf dem teppich liegt und die dem ort aus irgendeinem grund mehr als sieben euro schulden.
kump is delighted to release the first ep by hlm38 (ou hlm38’s first ep), the naughty half of duo ricco and member of the notte brigante crew from lyon. the three original tracks, a mix of ethnic looting and industrial racket in slow motion, feel like steel wrapped in turkish delight. front de cadeaux’s take on “illicite cong” is reminiscent of an erotic rave flavoured with oriental spices. last but not least, kris baha slices up “exit” like a tablier de sapeur (local lyonnais dish) served on a julienne of syncopated samples and noisy beats.
brand new jack pattern tracks and two cracking remixes from kris baha and ratlife s sneaker
subliminale materiale is the 5th installation on lustpoderosa. kind of a split ep. the a side with two remixes and two original jams of jack pattern on the b side. with this release we want to point out the remixes on the a side. both done by lustpoderosas favourite producers and djs: sneaker aka dunkeltier (uncanny valley, rat life, frigio) and kris baha (power station, pinkman cocktail d amore) . we guess you know and love them as much as we do.

emotional especial and cocktail d amore music enter cahoot-mode once again with a second round of sfire remixes that take proceedings down a deeper, more stripped-back path courtesy of the inimitable timothy j fairplay and willie burns. two artists who need little introduction offer up two remixes each that take the unique original to new dance floor extremes. timothy steps up first with his take on -sfire 2- via differing vocal and instrumental versions. his trademark, echo laden rolling percussion and john carpenter-style key lines take the original synth-pop homage to the dark room. adding arps, a lifting, hedonistic breakdown and the scatter-stepper drums and claps found on the instrumental version and this is pure cotf territory and the better for it. mr willie burns meanwhile has long followed his own path for his take on -sfire 3-, offering one of his deepest remixes to date. thudding kick, brooding pads and dark strings force the vocals to go down, way down for examination. the distorted vocals of remix 1 are countered by remix 2 letting the track shine via a seemingly endless 4/4 beat. psychedelic, trance inducing, pulsating, this is an ever growing mind expanse.
