CASSARA “La Vela EP”(Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on June 26, 2015 by E.N.

CASSARA La Vela EPGet ready for Cassara, the man who delivers the hottest funky French House of the season! After two vinyl only releases, this Hamburg-based Italian-sound wizard now delivers his first EP that’s guaranteed to make you move it. Cris Cassara has been around for a decade in the music business, sharing studios with fellows like Digitalism, writing serious pop songs and primarily being a great vocalist.

He grew up with the disco and funk music of the 70s, but his love for Daft Punk and the French House scene of the late 90’s with Fred Falke, Cassius and Superfunk brought him to nightly sessions in the studio, trying to decode the DNA of that legendary sound.

The result can be enjoyed on the „La Vela EP“ and is packed with peak-time filler funky bombs, the baddest bass sound around and some serious grooves. Early supporters include Aeroplane and Satin Jackets who consistently include “Lady Leopard“, “The Forest“ and “La Vela“ in their sets.

Tensnake – Keep On Talking (Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , on April 21, 2015 by E.N.

tensnakeMarco Niemerski, aka German DJ and producer Tensnake is set to release his Keep On Talking / Walk On EP via his own imprint, True Romance on June 8th 2015.

A-side “Keep On Talking” is a tingling and infectious cut, defined by a tropical bassline and lush wandering synths that hark back to an era gone by, while B-side “Walk On” takes a darker, more minimalist tone with slinky, staggered house beats. Building to a crescendo of strings amidst a flurry of synths full of compacted energy, this is a record that sees Niemerski return to the sound that birthed the iconic record “Coma Cat.”

2014 was a huge year for Tensnake, seeing him record two shows for BBC Radio 1’s Residency series alongside long term friend and fellow artist Gerd Janson. From Panorama Bar to A Club Called Rhonda, Niemerski’s touring schedule also took him to some of the most respected and diverse clubbing spaces on the globe. Fresh for 2015, Keep On Talking / Walk On now sees him delve deep and explore the sound that first solidified him as one of dance music’s most celebrated artists.

Roots Manuva new track ‘Like A Drum’ prod. by Machinedrum

Posted in News with tags , , , , on April 21, 2015 by E.N.

Roots Manuva facetyRodney Smith is arguably the greatest rapper ever to emerge from British shores. Over five albums of sonic invention, which, like all great hip-hop records, ran the gamut between funky fun and sharp-eyed lyrical incision, he’s carved out space for rappers in the UK, and become one the iconic voices in hip-hop from anywhere.

Produced by one of electronic music’s most exciting voices, NYC’s Machinedrum, ‘Like a Drum’ is the second cut from new single Facety 2:11. Urgent and reflective all at once, its percussion swings gorgeously behind a melody intricately weaved from jazz samples and warm pads, Smith’s vocal ruminating on his past, future and present.

In his inimitable words, the single is ‘a wee spring warmer in voodoo coptic dialect shape shifting: the remit the same as ever in awakening one’s inner, modern-day Sun Ra, ODB and Kate Bush on an overdrive of “doing because we can’t help ourselves…’

Facety 2:11 is out 4th May on Big Dada

Hudson Mohawke Announces New Album ‘Lantern’ // Out June 16+Trailer+Tour

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on March 10, 2015 by E.N.

Hudson Mohawke Announces New Album 'Lantern'This summer Hudson Mohawke will release Lantern, his first solo full length in nearly 6 years. The producer has been on a meteoric rise the last few years, working with some of the biggest names in hip hop, pop and dance music but everything started in a bedroom in Glasgow when he was barely a teenager. From age 15 he was an award winning scratch DJ producing happy hardcore on cracked software – he came to define a generation of electronic fusion producers but unlike many of his peers, Hudson has matured into a fully-fledged contemporary hitmaker continually working to break the mold.

Born of the underground club scene in the UK, ‘Hud Mo’ has been releasing music for the last 10 years, cultivating a formidable presence in the community. His US break-out came in 2012 with TNGHT, the collaborative project with fellow producer Lunice, which saw their production influence the A-list in rap and help reintroduce the US dance / EDM scene to Hip Hop as club music. In the two years following, Hudson has worked on releases from Drake, Kanye West, John Legend, Young Thug, Pusha-T, and Antony Hegarty. Despite becoming one of hip hop’s go-to producers, to his avid fans he’s never been tied to one genre – and with Lantern we hear the realization of everything he has been working on since that Glasgow bedroom.

This album is everything I’ve been working towards. I wanted to make a classic – at least for me and my friends. I never wanted to be any genre. I wanted to be my own thing. Everything.“ – Hudson Mohawke

Matthew Styles Rebel Rave 4

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2015 by E.N.

CRMCD028_artwork-600x_Matthew Styles Rebel Rave 4Rebel Rave 4 is a scrupulous odyssey across three discs swarming with rare remixes and special cuts from the long-standing label Crosstown Rebels. Highlighting material from former Bloc Party performer turned solo star Kele Okereke, standoffs between Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs & Eats Everything and Jamie Jones & Luca C and interpretions from dance music greats Cassius, Dixon, Adam Beyer, Tale Of Us, Maceo Plex, Herbert & more, these are future classics to shift your senses.

Those that are familiar with Berlin-based Matthew Styles know that he stands for timeless curation and is armed with a meticulous musical style. The DJ’s favourite DJ steps up to curate the third disc of Crosstown Rebels’ Rebel Rave series. As former label manager, Matthew Styles shaped and sculpted the first five years of the label’s existence, giving him an unrivalled insight into its foundations. His selection and integration attests to this with well-concealed gems from the likes of Seth Troxler’s The Royal We, Radio Slave (Canvas), Josh Wink, Mr G, Matthew Jonson, Freaks and Rob Mello.

Putting together the track list for this mix, and listening to songs that spanned 12 years. I am still surprised by many of the records we worked all those years ago and how well many of those classics have stood the test of time. There is so much variety and it´s hard to pigeonhole, but I hope to have put some of my perspective on Crosstown Rebels.” Matthew Styles on Rebel Rave 4
