Vindahl – Serendipity

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2011 by E.N.

‘Serendipity’ is a term used in science to describe an unintentional gain of knowledge, finding something you weren’t expecting to find. This strong pop album by Copenhagen-based producer Ronni Vindahl might offer exactly that, if not even more.

As co-founder of the vanguard soul collective Boom Clap Bachelors, Vindahl has also been involved with numerous offspring projects such as Ivory & GoldRobiKris Mars andNon+. This first album project to be released under his real name has been his secret heart project for more than four years now, its release date being postponed numerous times for further rounds of perfectioning. Of course ‘Serendipity’ is first and foremost a bold electronic indie pop album, but it goes further, integrating insights from his work in philosophy and art galleries into the album concept. Musical influences as diverse as Talking Heads, Trevor Horn and Prince shimmer through, complemented by lyrics often based on themes of duality as the album cover indicates. Guest artists featured on ‘Serenpidity’ include swedish pop star Jenny WilsonCoco from Quadron and a bonus remix by the Boom Clap Bachelors. An album which is lot more than just an unintentional gain of knowledge, but a serious piece of pop art!

 Release date October 17th 2010
Label code TDR11-006
Distribution Digital / CD worldwide

 Download MP3  Eyes Like Pearls”   

With What Were You Hoping For?, Van Hunt kicks out the jams with a spare but dizzyingly vibrant meld of day-glo psychedelic soul with glammed-up riffs and the acerbic energy of punk.  The album sees the Grammy-winning musician/songwriter/producer turning up the volume on his genre-smashing songcraft and the results are altogether gripping.  From the breakneck “Watching You Go Crazy is Driving Me Insane” and “A Time Machine is My New Girlfriend” to the metallic k.o. of the album’s first single,”Eyes Like Pearls,” Hunt unleashes a sound that reverberates with caustic wit, passion, and the thrilling excitement of an artist operating at the peak of his powers.  Careening with exhilarating intensity and frenetic, inventive musicality, What Were You Hoping For? is Van Hunt’s most daring and provocative work to date.

 

Van’s tour kicked off on September 19th in New York City and continues throughout the country through October. Tour dates are below.

2011 has been the best year so far for arguably the world’s best underground dance label, Crosstown Rebels. Having released incredible artist albums by Maceo Plex, Deniz Kurtel & Art Department and the sublime ‘Get Lost 4’ mixed by Damian Lazarus, they now release Rebel Rave 2 as a compendium to their most prolific year to date. The album showcases highlights from the year over two discs and features a stunning DJ mix on CD3 mixed by high flying LA threepiece collective Droog.

Rebel Rave returns with another three discs of upfront material from the Crosstown Rebels recent catalogue, in a similar format to the first edition. Featuring some of the most ground-breaking, critically acclaimed and widely loved singles from the Crosstown stable this year; from label stalwarts Jamie Jones, Glimpse, Deniz Kurtel, Dan Berkson and head honcho Damian Lazarus, to a sea of new faces in Russ Yallop, Fur Coat and Subb-an, and outstanding contributions from two of this year biggest artists Maceo Plex and Art Department plus huge releases from Guti & Dubshape, Solomun, James What, Inxec & Droog.

The collection is a great barometer to Crosstown’s triumphant year. The first two discs are unmixed and span buried B-sides, reedits and remixes from some of this year’s biggest releases, featuring work by some inspirational producers such as DJ Harvey, Guy Gerber, Maya Jane Coles, Dixon, Ewan Pearson, Ivan Smagghe, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Zev (Wolf + Lamb) and many more. Disc three is a superb mix of highlights and fresh material from the imprint sonically sculptured together by LA’s Droog. Hypnotic and alluring, vibrant and exciting, this timeless journey cements a victorious year for both the imprint, and its expanding family of artists.

Born in 2008 as a prolific film series that follows some of the most charismatic and formidable characters of the underground dance music scene as their career takes them around the globe (www.rebelrave.tv), Rebel Rave has become a benchmark for a new coming of age for house and techno music. Put together by global pioneers of the industry, Crosstown Rebels, Rebel Rave is a beacon of kudos, keeping a foot firmly in the underground while carving its own path into the mainstream.

The first compilation came from Clive Henry and for the second episode we meet Droog, a unique three piece collective from Lazarus’ new home in Los Angeles. Droog are Andrei Osyka, Brett Griffin and Justin Sloe, a dynamic trio of producers, DJs and music lovers that have set about instilling their passion into their beat hungry West Coast environment. Droog are behind the infamous rooftop soirees at LA’s Standard hotel that brought the elite of house and techno to the city for the first time.

Now regularly showcasing the best talent and with Steve Bug, Magda, Dixon and Soul Clap all big fans of the series, Culprit sessions are undoubtedly the superior event in LA for cutting edge music. In 2009, Droog started their Culprit label, initiated with the debut release from Hot Natured. Since then it has supported the careers of local talent such as Kenneth James Gibson and Lee Foss (before his relocation to London) and brought early releases from Matt Tolfrey & Inxec and Ovum star M A N I K.

Damian Lazarus established Crosstown Rebels 8 years ago and has created a covert force of nature that continues to dig up new talent and future heroes. Rebel Rave is the label’s flagship calling card and an annual celebration of its achievements to date. Rebel Rave marks the close of 2011 for Crosstown Rebels, while next year promises to be an yet more prolific, with new albums from Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex, Art Department & Deniz Kurtel, as well as debut albums from Fur Coat, Amirali and many other exciting new projects.

“23-year-old Tigran Mimosa thrills audiences with his vibration-laden sonic endeavors and charismatic stage presence. His set at this year’s Lightning in a Bottle is the stuff of legend, although he calls playing for a sold out crowd of 10,000 at Colorado’s Redrocks Amphitheatre “the most epic moment of my musical career.” Sound: MiMOSA produces hip-hop infused, deep bass dubstep constructed with expertly arranged synth-crunch layers that build to explosive moments of sonic boom.
-Huffington Post

“It’s hard to tell where exactly a MiMOSA track is going to take you; Tigran does some non-traditional things when it comes to syncopation and mixed meter, and at Zoo this year, he mixed up his heavier, grimy bass beats with interjections of top-40 in unusual ways.” – 5 Acts to Watch: Flavorpill

“I’m not sure he belongs in the dubstep genre, because I’m not sure he belongs in any genre. He doesn’t follow the normal rules of music. One question: “Does it have enough bass to rattle your brain around inside your skull? Good.” Of course” -Earmilk
