matthew herbert and goldsmiths universitys in-house record label nx records presents the latest in their series of experimental electronic vinyl 12-s. nx14x showcases the work of two boundary pushing goldsmiths students: first, uk born and south africa raised composer galina juritz, whose chopped and spliced rnb doused in lush string arrangements enduces a fidgety unease and zero gravity lushness in equal measure. and second, rising dj and producer harry rodger, with two cuts of organic, summery techno that would sound perfectly at home pumping out of the nts radio speakers into a sun-baked gillett square.

limitierte, erweiterte auflage als 3lp von fritz debütalbum auf vinyl. beinhaltet das original album mit features von audessey (soundsci), t-love, chaotik stylz, replife und anderen plus 10 bonustracks!
mit hitsingles wie -get a life-, -back home- und -sky and sand- (mit seinem bruder paul) hat fritz kalkbrenner in den letzten jahren unser modernes verständnis von elektronischer musik mitgeprägt. nach vier erfolgreichen alben, von denen die letzten beiden die top 10 der deutschen albumcharts erreichten, wendet er seinen musikalischen blick in eine andere richtung. es geht hier um elektronische musik, wie sie fritz kalkbrenner in seiner jugendlichen sozialisierung in den bis heute legendären techno- und houseclubs der hauptstadt in den neunziger jahren kennengelernt hat. die zäsur, des weglassens der so vertraut gewordenen bariton stimme öffnet die tür in die weite welt elektronischer musik, die sowohl für das homelistening, als auch für den clubeinsatz taugt. es gibt auf diesen 12 tracks keine konventionen und manchmal auch kein halten mehr, fritz kalkbrenner lässt sich gehen in der faszination für dub techno, für klare dominante housestrukturen oder auch in feinen hymnischen melodien die aus so manchem titel des neuen albums herausscheinen.

closely following the release of the last borderland single, the focus returns on transport, the last collaborative album by juan atkins and moritz von oswald. long time friend and studio partner of moritz von oswald, carl craig provides a new take on “transport”. extending and stripping the original sequence to its bone, the illustrious planet e president and illustrious detroit proponent also summons a stepping drum sequence and a swaying array of moving delays. this 12“ edit is cut on the a-side. the full version of carl craig’s remix clocks just above 20 minutes and is available digitally. both are available to anyone who purchases the record, through the enclosed download card. on the flip, dj deep & roman poncet rework carl craig’s remix, adding their signature grooves and myriad of tough drums, to full effect.
a kind of intimate scrapbook of the startling collaboration between the techno maestro and this long-standing musical collective based in bishkek, devoted to the roots music of kyrgyzstan. loose-leaved but balanced, lucid and intimate, it sets out from stunning a cappella and virtuosic komuz and kylak, mouth harp and traditional percussion: not field, but expert studio recordings, using marvellous vintage microphones, made over several days in berlin. further, a few of these are deftly treated by moritz, using reichian de-synced double-tracking, and discreet effects. also two ten-minute dubs: a deadly, signature berlin steppers, plus its version and an echoing, mystical drum session, recorded live on stage in bishkek. and a side-long, dream-like summation: the locomotive, oceanic, clangorous, dread facets. ravishing, rooted, searching music, beautifully presented.
juan atkins and moritz von oswald - the two vital proponents of detroit-berlin axis, return to the mothership following their 2016 full length effort transport. angles is the result of a new conversation between the founding father of electronic music and his german counterpart. the serene source of captivating musical ideas that is borderland, keeps on flowing and vibrating with subtle energy. two versions form here a new set of studio-refined sequences. both parts of ôconcaveö are the ungraspable manifestation of the wild quietness in which the duo finds itself. predicting at once, possible outcomes for the craft of electronic sound, while respecting their profound origins.

bondage-music head honchos pornbugs prep the labels next release for early april comprising three original tracks and a remix from mihai popoviciu. since 2006, german duo pornbugs have been pushing their minimal yet ambitious dance floor orientated house music through clubs across the globe, with their label bondage-music acting as a catalyst for forward thinking music. bondage-music also works as an outlet for other talented producers including romania’s mihai popoviciu and inmotion music signee markus homm to further develop their sound. fresh from a string of early 2017 digital releases from frink and sous sol, april sees bondage-music’s first vinyl offering of the year, kick started with the subtle and melodic cut “when you are gone“, which takes a deep groove and laces it with a plethora of soft synths and atmospherics. mihai popoviciu then reworks “when you are gone“ into a different entity, rewiring a headier groove into the track with raw-defined hats, building further tension with tight synth stabs and ethereal pads. vinyl only track “innocent“ then takes tribal tinged percussion to new depths, fuelling it with booming kicks and flourishing chords, further intensified by swirling vocals. a pure dub aesthetic then shines through “maritza“, as saturated drums and a rumbling low end provide the skeleton for swelling synths to meander alongside spiritual vocals, closing out the package.

juan atkins and moritz von oswald – the two indispensable protagonists of the electric garden – plug back into the wilderness. transport – the new full length effort of the borderland collaborative project – brings together a new set of studio-refined sequences aimed at colonizing some of the dark energy that pulsates through those areas that are thoroughly electrified, even if not ‘on the grid’.
the detroit-berlin axis triangulates to a third point which, like the atomic particle that lives in two places at once, flickers between a form of techno-charged ambience and a futuristic club-jazz which cannot be broken down into constitutive parts. borderland remains caught in a state of enraptured stillness, invisibly moving between every imagined future for electronic sound making. the result: a font from which springs serene and exhilarating musical ideas that vibrate with refined energy for sixty seconds in every minute.

after the success of the first ep on belief system records in 2013, ritzi lee has decided its time to deliver the next bomb! with radio signals ep ritzi is taking a deeper exploration on how certain signal sounds can influence space, and how he can apply this in techno music. the result (for now) is 4 tracks that cover different levels of suspence. >deflected< works like a frequency shield where no influences from outside can come through. >activate< is a subtile suspence build up to pass over the signals to infinity. >s.o.s.< is the tune to save our souls in techno music. and >code 754< is the technology to support intergalactic carrier wave transport.

booka shade are set to release crossing borders featuring fritz kalkbrenner from their 2013 album eve on embassy one / blaufield music. booka shade first met fritz when he asked them to remix one of his songs, as we are fans of his voice, we thought it would be a great idea if he would sing a vocal for one of our demos for the new album. he came to our studio with the lyrics of crossing borders and within 1 hour, the song was recorded. crossing borders is enriched with acoustic and chilling electronic tones and demonstrates the trials and tribulations of the every day struggle weve got to go on, even if we stray, crossing borders to another side

meditative, absorbing dance music in true moritz style — at times seemingly transfixed by its own elements, and minimal almost to vanishing-point, but quickly back ticking, kicking and amassing, with the lethal dubwise density of the classic berlin sound. twelve minutes long, trenchant and forbidding but sharply alive, the dub itself is a kind of deep fort-da gambit which scoops your brain out for a quick sluice, before replacing it slightly skewiff. dont drop your guard because of the tresor.

after mark ernestus mix of moyege in this series, now his basic channel / rhythm and sound partner comes to the control tower. moritz s deep berlin steppers discloses dubwise traces of our original lagos recording — the percussion of yinka ogunye, the singing of fifties palmwine legend rolling dollar, oscar olimbi s guitar lick — in with his own oberheim voicings, additional drumming, and cool-and-deadly rhythm track. its a tough, masterly dance record in fine rhythm and sound style — which during its ten-and-a-half minutes seems to ponder time elapsed and journeys undertaken. like a stepping razor, but t-u-m-p-i-n. this reggae land version is the take-no-prisoners, pared-down dub of wareika hill sounds rootical rework of ise nla. magnificent trombone and percussion. expert, classical ja mixing. brings to mind those great dubs of glen brown s black man stand up pan foot
