Nervous Records - one of dance music’s longest running and most respected labels – is pleased to announce the signing of Lützenkirchen – Munich’s foremost electro-techno exponent. The first product of this new relationship is the May 31 global release of Nervous Nitelife: Lützenkirchen. This special two-CD release features One Disc packed entirely with all Lützenkirchen tracks and a Second Disc featuring the best tracks from Great Stuff (Lützenkirchen’s home label) over the past few months.

Blending infectious, jacking techno grooves with dirty electro sounds and dashes of house, Lützenkirchen’s sound is electronic as they come, but with a real sense of funk that makes his music accessible to a wide range of DJs, clubbers and part-time dance music enthusiasts. From his huge remixes for the likes of John Digweed and Coburn to his outstanding 2008 artist album Pandora Electronica, the power and quality of his productions rarely slip. Meanwhile his acclaimed live sets continue to grow in reputation, his charismatic stage presence bringing a breath of fresh air to the usual limp and lifeless laptop workout. In recent years he scored a German Top 10 chart hit with the huge “3 Tage Wach” while putting out a prolific, consistent stream of cool and credible club tracks.

I rise again
I rise again to victory
with history, mystery and prophecy…
Lee “Scratch” Perry

As one of the most prolific, influential and irretrievably eccentric record producers ever, Lee “Scratch” Perry continues to reshape and refine an adventurous style all his own with his latest studio outing, Rise Again. A long-awaited collaboration with New York-based producer Bill Laswell (and a team of talented musicians), the album marks a milestone in the careers of both artists, arriving as it does on the heels of Perry’s 75th birthday, and as a flagship release on Laswell’s own M.O.D. Technologies imprint.

To mark the occasion, Laswell has recruited an A-list of talented musicians who each adds their own unique flavor to the project. This diverse line-up includes vocalists Tunde Adebimpe (frontman for Brooklyn art punks TV On The Radio), Gigi Shibabaw (whose Mesgana Ethiopia was released last year) and Hawkman (co-lead throat for the Laswell-founded group Method Of Defiance); P-Funk legend Bernie Worrell (keyboards); Peter Apfelbaum (tenor sax & flute); Steven Bernstein (trumpet); Josh Werner (bass); and Hamid Drake (drums). It’s a killer studio ensemble that could give Perry’s original Upsetters band (with the Wailers’ Family Man and Carly Barrett) a serious battle for the backbeat.

“I really should have connected with Scratch a long time ago,” Laswell told Bass Player magazine last December. “A lot of it is just about a contact. [Matisyahu bassist] Josh Werner was playing in Scratch’s band, and I had worked with Josh. He suggested trying to create something with Scratch, and I was certain no record company in their right mind would touch it, which is why we’re doing it ourselves. It’s a real production, and really conscious of bringing out Lee Perry. It’s his presence that keeps this thing moving. Is the whole idea crazy? That’s part of what makes it worth doing.”

On Rise Again, Perry still sounds strangely at home on a microphone—a move he first made on the 1978 classic Roast Fish, Collie Weed & Corn Bread, even though he’d produced countless classic records in Jamaica for more than ten years before that. But Scratch is a natural storyteller, a soothsayer, a space-time traveler and a truth revealer—all aspects of a complex persona he has cultivated over the years, shrouded in Rasta mysticism and church catechism, but completely original and unbeholden to any rules or customs. Scratch does his own thing, on his own time, and if songs like “Scratch Message” and “Wake the Dead” and the title track “Rise Again” are any indication, the quickest way to the center of Scratch’s ethos is to give up trying to understand him and just let his lyrics wash over you.

Meanwhile, Laswell’s tripped-out soundscapes recall the vintage dub sound Perry himself perfected in the ’70s, but with the stereo thickness, clarity and warmth of a true state-of-the-art recording. It’s still amazing to consider that some of Perry’s best dub mixes, like the indispensable Heart Of The Congos album from 1977, were created using a 4-track tape machine, and yet there’s a distinctly analog flavor to much of Rise Again, evident in Bernie Worrell’s organ lines on “Japanese Food,” in the echo-kissed horns and Minimoog belches on “Dancehall Kung Fu,” or in the chimes, flute and found sounds that weave their way through the opening track “Higher Level.”

In the 1990s, Perry became a mentor figure for the Beastie Boys and enjoyed a renaissance with American fans. Since then, he has toured the globe relentlessly as a solo performer, selling out shows from San Francisco to Sydney, New York to Nice. In 2003, he won the Grammy Award® for Best Reggae Album, an honor he was nominated for again in 2008. No doubt he’ll be so recognized this year for Rise Again.

Lee Perry’s documentary portrait The Upsetter, narrated by Benicio Del Toro, will be released in theaters and on DVD in 2011. David Katz’s definitive biography People Funny Boy is currently available worldwide.

Class B Band -’Movie T’ March 28 on Wagon Repair + Free Download

DJ Bea Tricks and beatboxer Beatmaster G are “Class B Band”
 
Debut CD “Movie T” out in March on Wagon Repair

Class B Band
“Movie T”
Release Date: March 28, 2011
Label: Wagon Repair

The world may be bracing itself for the cataclysmic changes of 2012, but Spaniards DJ Bea Tricks and beatboxer Beatmaster G have reunited with Wagon Repair to summon the Mothership now, under the moniker of “Class B Band”.
 
As a solo artist and as part of Dollz at Play with her former partner Xochilt, Bea Tricks has been spinning crowds into a tizzy with her high-gloss hard house at some of the world’s choicest venues, including Mr. C.’s Superfreq nights at Ibiza’s Underground and London’s The End. Meanwhile, Beatmaster G has been making the music with his mouth on the international MC circuit, touring on his own and playing live sets with club giants like Danny Tenaglia. Wagon Repair, always pushing the boundaries of dance music, previously released B & G’s EP Be at Risk to critical acclaim. Now, as Class B Band, the debut album Movie T drops on Wagon Repair late March 2011.
 
The Movie T, like the Bea At Risk EP, was recorded in the fairy tale mountains of Ibiza. Genre-bending prime time floor fillers, free-form instrumentals and grimey interludes pack a little boom bap on this exciting release. The combination of Bea’s love for rockabilly, new wave and punk; Beatmaster G’s love for all things B-Boy; their shared love of Hip Hop, disco­and even the supernatural­made its way into Be at Risk, making it an instant perennial in discerning crates everywhere. Movie T fits snuggly alongside this first effort.
 
In the spirit of New York’s Abe Duque, Berlin’s Modeselektor and Chicago’s Cajmere, there is a touch of the savant prankster to Class B Band’s free-wheeling, crunky beats. Their goofball touch is evident in the cheeky titles of acid-jack tracks like “Cats Nightmare” and “Electric Elf.” The mix of humour warped bass lines, punchy-askew beats and Beatmaster G’s special vocal effects, invoke a marathon night at a nightclub from beyond. Shades of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” click and pulse through “Morgan X” as the vocals stutter and mutter, “there’s a killer out there, so be please be aware”. On “Drain Age” slurred vocals wail, “I’m gonna need a drink tonight…” at a dizzy pitch over a cavernous vibe. The percolating, circus-like “Panfletto” is a response of sorts to Cajmere’s “Answering Machine” down to the sprinkling of ringing phones. The break-of-dawn groove in “Sillycatto” builds from sparse ambience to tribal house throwing the beat back to the nights when dream drums ruled the Sound Factory. “Horrendous Master Plan” is a sinister slice of acid-washed electrofunk would sound just as fresh bumping out of a West Coast low-rider as a disco cabana in Ibiza. The Movie T ends on a sublime, no-wave note, via “Don Simon & the Class B Band” a grungy hipswaying neck-shaker.
 
In Bea and Beatmaster G’s own words, “We believe there’s something in The Movie T for all kinds of listeners … all you need is a pair of open ears and a bit of sense of humour.  We hope to keep you guys moving and that you enjoy listening to it as much as we did creating

Check out what happens when Aaron LaCrate, Greg Nice and Flavor Flav go up against the dubstep monster – it’s “Ayo Ayo.”

From his East Baltimore roots and status as the cities youngest working DJ, his summer’s interning for the likes of Def Jam and Rock-A-fella, his successful music and fashion brand (Milkcrate), to his tour dates with Lily Allen, Mark Ronson, Dizzee Rascal, Rakim, and most recently Kanye West, LaCrate has always been in the business of party. He’s also credited with first discovering Spank Rock and Amanda Blank (both appeared on LaCrate’s first release 2005’s B-more Gutter Music) and it was Aaron who introduced MNDR to Mark Ronson when Mark needed new artists for his new CD Record Collection. This lead to the collaboration “Bang Bang Bang.”

LaCrate often pays homage to the Baltimore art scene and collaborates with the local performers such as MZ Streamz who appears on “Tidal Wave.” In 2009 LaCrate teamed up with Debonair Samir for the release of the first B-more major label record in history, B-more Club Crack. Get ready for the next phase. “Highlandtown: Ignorant Art is coming soon.

Egyptrixx debut artist album“Bible Eyes” February 9 on Night Slugs+ Free single and video

Egyptrixx readies debut artist CD “Bible Eyes”

Download: XLR8R premiere’s Egyptrixx track “Chrysalis Records (feat Trust)”

EGYPTRIXX
“BIBLE EYES”
February 9, 2011
Label: Night Slugs

While it might sound a bit premature and boastful, we’re confident that Egyptrixx’ debut CD Bible Eyes will end up amongst the top electronic music releases of 2011. Those in the underground are already familiar with Egyptrixx through the praise garnered from heavyweight DJ’s, including Sinden, Mary Ann Hobbs and Drop the Lime and influential publications such as The Fader, Xlr8r and The Wire magazine. Recorded over three months during the summer of 2010, Bible Eyes is a complete work that manages to bring different sounds and styles together in a seamless manner. It could very well be the Music Has The Right To Children or Untrue of 2011.

The work of classically trained pianist and Toronto native, David Psutka, Bible Eyes is celestial club music; jeep music for a Saturn desert. There is an exhilarating right-but-wrong tension that all of Egyptrixx’ tracks share – a shifting balance between melodic and dissonant, rapturous and antisocial. His releases challenge the status quo and impress with a unique style informed by elements of techno, house, dubstep and pop music.

Opening track “Start From The Beginning” drones in waves over white washed atmospheres and gentle piano stabs; a perfect lead into the bloopy house cycles of the title track. Lead single “Chrysalis Records (feat Trust)” bleeds into experimental pop and is matched perfectly with the vocals of Maya from the Canadian band Trust. Another series of shifts takes this journey into the minimal techno realm on “Liberation Front” and then psychedelic (and gorgeous) downtempo broken beat on the irresistible “Naples” and the trippy “Rooks Theme.” Melodic techno’s back in the picture on “Recital (A Version)” before Trust’s other singer (Rob) lends his vocals to the spacey gothic pop of “Fuji Cub (feat Trust).” The electronic bass breaks of “Barely” and the jagged and pulsating “Recital (B version)” provide the final chapters in Egyptrixx’ Bible Eyes.

Egyptrixx tours around the world offering fans a live interpretation of his original music. Built around Ableton Live, APC 40 MIDI Controller, Korg Kaoss Pad and microKorg virtual analog synthesizer/vocoder, Egyptrixx breaks down his original tracks and resequences the music live and on the fly. This ensures that each set will be different and open for interpretation to suit each crowd and his own feelings. Look out for live dates throughout 2011.

“Turn You Inside Out (Minitel Rose Remix)
Download Here
In advance of the November 22 release of their new CD Atlantique, Valerie Collective member Minitel Rose are offering a free remix of fellow K7! Records artist Jimmy Edgar’s “Turn You Inside Out” – a very unique paring of artists indeed.

“Minitel Rose share Klaxons melodic sensibility, Boy Crisis lissom sophistication and, at their best (whistle-tastic single Magic Powder, a potential indie-electro Young Folks), Lykke Lis spare sound palette. They should ease off the shrill, clichéd Justice synths, but there is a bright glimmer of real promise here”. NME

“Sickly sweet. With their snazzy logo and oh-so-?80s retro look, new Nantes trio Minitel Rose are perched atop the crest of the next wave of hip Gallic electro-pop. Their debut The French Machine offers an elegant take on the Ed Banger aesthetic, but their plundering of Sebastien Tellier, Sparks and Daft Punk often turns sickly sweet”. UNCUT
