Clubroot II : MMX

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2010 by dk

For many a discerning listener, memories of the summer of 2009 will carry in the mind a soundtrack of Clubroot, who’s eponymous debut album seeped gently across the low-end underground with its stately and beautiful interpretation of bass music’s more etherial qualities. For the artist, events and experiences since then have co-mingled to catalyse a new series of graceful objects of sound to be emitted.

Visits to such disparate locales as Turkey and Poland became parts of the cinematic ambience that is the new Clubroot album, a record with no “official” title save for the ‘II : MMX’ date-mark adorning the front cover. This most inspired producer has created a series of audio-images, distilled to a previously unheard refinement within his chosen genre, and with a nature and overall shape and scope that largely transcends any style one could attempt to ascribe it to. It is still electronic music, yet it all sounds so absolutely married to its accompanying elements that it seems as if it was unearthed in complete form as opposed to constructed by deliberate process. ‘II : MMX’ possesses some of the most pronounced and arresting basslines ever heard, yet is delivered musically in a language that shares dialectic origins with fellow stratospheric travellers like Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins, or Muslimgauze.

In this sense, and taken as a whole, the thread of pronounced themes and dramatic moments passing through the 11 pieces of ‘II : MMX’ combine and develop to create something almost magisterial in scope and effect. An early report on The Quietus website speaks of “another, if not richer, exploration of that whole wistful garage sound Burial made so prevalent”, and much more effusive praised is promised for what will surely be welcomed as one of the most elegaic and transporting albums of the year, either within out without the low-frequency firmament. Comparisons with Burial will continue to abound, yet with this release Clubroot is emphatically establishing his own markedly individual vision of the music of the spheres. ‘II : MMX’ will be available initially in three distinct formats : standard 11 track CD, 500 copy numbered edition double CD containing bonus disc of three previously unavaliable Clubroot remixes packaged in hand-made letterpress box, and limited eight track double LP set in vinyl-plus artwork jacket with uncased copy of the standard 11 track CD included.

The School: Loveless Unbeliever

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2010 by dk

The School: Loveless Unbeliever
Release Date : May 31 2010

For years, all the fans of the best pop waited anxiously for that group that was going to occupy the space left between The Pipettes and Belle & Sebastian, heirs of the best pop from the sixties (The Shirelles, The Ronettes, The Supremes) and the best Scottish pop (Camera Obscura, BMX Bandits). But it’s finally here, ‘Loveless Unbeliever’, the debut album of The School.

And the Cardiff band, after the singles ‘Let It Slip’ and ‘All I Wanna Do’, with which they conquered the critics and the public half the world over, in addition to creating uncommonly high expectations, have shown us that they’re the perfect spearhead of a sound that, even today, continues to thrill us.

Once again with the production of Ian Catt (Saint Etienne, Trembling Blue Stars, The Field Mice, Shampoo, The Boo Radleys), they demonstrate their incredible ability with melodies and arrangements, releasing an album with more gems than a jewelry store, like ‘Valentine’, ‘Is He Really Coming Home?’, ‘I Want You Back’ and ‘Hoping and Praying’, songs that are uncontestable candidates to remain perennially in our stereos.

“It’s the indie of yore; the indie of Belle & Sebastian, St Etienne and Sarah Records, where ’60s fashion met romantic poetry and outsider art to an optimistic soundtrack of 7″ singles dominated by fey female vocalists cooing over jangly guitars and synth strings.”Shindig Magazine

Delorean- Subiza

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2010 by dk

Delorean: Subiza
Release Date : Jun 07 2010
Label:True Panther

Barcelona’s Delorean mine a territory between dance music and independent pop, producing a sound that is distinctly theirs. This is the record it took Delorean 10 years to evolve into, a fusion of dance music (including their native Spanish Balearic house) and contemporary pop music. The dance-club rhythms and airy melodies they’ve toyed with in the past are fused and textured, making for a deeply obsessive, hypnotic album that retains the easy appeal of great pop music. Looking at 30+ years of club music history with fresh eyes, Delorean have made an album that is dense and soulful.

“Subiza sounds like a simple and straightforward record. It’s bright and quick and full of easy sentiment. Its songs bleed in and out of one another effortlessly, but it’s also surprisingly varied. Synth-pop, Balearic disco, indie house: Call it what you want. Delorean just make beautiful, modern pop music.”Pitchfork

Body Language Vol.9 DJ Hell

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2010 by dk

DJ Hell has mixed the ninth edition of Body Language, due for release early this summer on Get Physical Music.

Following editions by Dixon, Junior Boys, Matthew Dear and Modeselektor, the new mix shows DJ Hell digging deep in his library, mixing contemporary club cuts with tunes from the ’70s and ’80s. While artists like Baby Ford, Will Saul and Kirk Degiorgio form the backbone of the mix, Klaus Schulz’s “Stardancer” and Ryuichi Sakamoto & David Sylvian’s “Forbidden Colors” make for interesting curve balls. Perennial favorites Depeche Mode make an appearance as well, and the mix wraps up with a transition from DJ Hell’s “Germania” into the 1985 hit “This Is Not America” by David Bowie and The Pat Metheny Group. The new compilation will be Hell’s first full-length release since Teufelswerk, his double album from 2009.

02. Baby Ford + Eon – Dead Eye
03. Kirk Degiorgio – Nairobi (Carl Craig Remix)

07. Melody Boy 2000 – Monotone Fantastique
08. The Balanescu Quartet – Robots
09. Ryuichi Sakamoto & David Sylvian – Forbidden Colors
10. Depeche Mode – Eque
11. Die Vogel – Empire (Original Version) / Empire (Dixon Edit)
