in the latest release from public system recordings we are allowed a look further into the syrupy synth dripping slowed beatdown. kluentah delivers a chalky electro smash with elongated snares and eerie chords passing from one end of the brain to the other, and to the floor. there is smooth vocal play as well as allowing for incoherent out of context speech samples that stab through minimal jumpy drum work. as diabolical and heavy as the hits and bass is, this enters the swath of dance floor records with a distinct flavor that sets itself above others execution. full of sludgy breaks, there is a constant reduction even as sounds and samples are introduced, they enter the roving mulch in a stylish slide.

very happy to have henry wu and earl jeffers debuting on mcde recordings this fall with their double sider -projections/hi-life-. both pablo valentino and myself have been fans of their work, be it henry and earls solo stuff or the highly adventurous yussef kamaal project which henry introduced 2 years ago. these guys take the london sound to a whole new level and we are very proud to have them doing their thing on our label.
nigeria’s kingsley bucknor’s ‘just u and me’ lp gets the long-awaited reissue treatment from melbourne’s left ear records. after cutting his teeth playing with fela in the 70’s and releasing two afrobeat lp’s kingsley travelled the globe before finding himself in london, it’s here that he laid down 6 distinctive electro-funk tunes inspired by african rhythms and music he’d heard through his travels in the states and in europe. originally issued on kinglsley’s own kab records in ’85 and according to kingsley the release was well received at the time, but due to constraints of international marketing the record remained mostly unknown outside of his homeland. fast-forward to 2017 and the stage is set for a new global audience to appreciate the distinct sound of kb.
vor vier jahren durften sich green-day-fans wirklich verwöhnt nennen, schließlich servierte die band damals gleich drei neue alben direkt hintereinander. dann wiederum wurde es etwas still, die band nahm sich erst mal eine auszeit. die ist 2016 allerdings beendet. und mit »revolution radio« steht endlich wieder ein neues album in den startlöchern.

die entstehung von “and the anonymous nobody” hat einige jahre gedauert. es war der wunsch der band ein sample-basiertes album aufzunehmen im stile von “3 feet high and rising”. um zum ziel zu gelangen, nahmen de la soul über 300 stunden musik in den verschiedensten stilen auf - von bossa nova über soul, hiphop, funk, disco bis zu reggae - und erschufen so ihr eigenes arsenal an instrumental-alben, aus denen sie samplen konnten.
ein weiteres wichtiges merkmal von “and the anonymous nobody” sind die zahlreichen gast-feature, die dem album noch mal eine enorme vielschichtigkeit geben. die liste der gastmusiker auf “and the anonymous nobody” ist entsprechend illuster wie spannend: damon albarn, david byrne, snoop dogg, usher, 2chainz, pete rock, justin hawkins, jill scott, estelle und roc marciano - sie alle leisten ihren beitrag zum neuen album von de la soul.

with a select few pieces of hardware, najera sculpts a deep house landscape all his own, where bass-lines peak and high hats fall in and out of time, stumbling, but always moving forward. from the early evening cocktail to the early morning sunrise.
with his last ep offering on keinemusik, &me displayed himself once again as supplier of anthems that easily reconcile style with general floor purpose. you would think, such an universal and inexhaustible tune as this very “after dark” can only be a lucky hit. but no, he’s knocking out the classic material just like that. another example? catalog number km028, his brandnew “trilogy” ep. the titletrack on a initially places a synth arpeggio behind a kick that in dryness is hardly to excel. the beat of -trilogy- is then seasoned with rimshot patterns until the saturated bassdrum comes in and paves the way to the dancefloor. &me even refines his knack for stoic grooves on this jam and once again shows his sure feeling for suitable vocal features. sabotas croon comes devoid of big gestures and still knows the ropes to appeal to the collective mentality of a clubcrowd. on the flipside, “woods” is living up to its name from the very beginning. woody percussions are thumping within an almost subtropical scenario that’s frequently pervaded by mighty synth clouds. and once again, there’s an arpeggio sneaking in that at some point is taking the lead in this strictly instrumental affair. add a break building that will educe a floor’s complete euphoric potential without going for the rather mindless escalation and there you have it: a b-side that’s actually more of an a-competitor.
a swinging set of brazilian and brazil-inspired tunes from the ubiquity catalog featuring songs from bosq, tita lima, the echocentrics, shawn lee, ohmega watts, the soul sufers, and many others. it also includes classics from john beltran, snowboy and remixes from tall black guy, joe claussell and the superimposers. the compilation is an eclectic mix of styles from batucadas with an electronic twist, samba and bossa nova with hints of deep funk (girl from sau paolo) and eastern jazz (bei’s bossa) to psychedelic tropicalia (nao vacila). this deep selection of tunes is the perfect soundtrack to sit back and watch the beautiful game with a few friends while enjoying a nice caipirinha.

alcis three part series titled early beginnings draws to a close and firmly cements the young swiss producer as a house music star in the making. alcis first ever demo was sent to phil weeks at the start of 2013, and so impressed was the robsoul chief that he instantly signed all 10 tracks to the label. alci, robsoul and phil weeks are an ideal match, as this third installment shows once again, with his funky, looped, sample-based and heads-down jacking house beats aligning perfectly with both phils and the labels philosophy and output. its also clear to hear the influence of the classic french house sound & robsouls interpretation of it in alcis music. the first two volumes in the early beginnings series picked up support from mosca (radio 1 play), darren emerson, roberto rodriguez, round table knights, matthias vogt, dirty channels, catz n dogz, rolando, hot toddy and many more
