Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on June 30, 2012 by J.D.

The latest from the illustrious New York City imprint Biatch Corp comes courtesy of well-known Manchester producer James Kumo. Kumo, hot of his single “I Understand” for Dan Curtin’s Metamorphic label, gets deep on the Stagger EP with three provocative originals in his distinctive shuffling percussion style. Rounding out the collection are two superb remixes of the title track from Brendon Moeller and Paul EG respectively.
ARTIST: James Kumo
TITLE: Stagger EP
LABEL: Biatch Corp
RELEASE DATE: July 15, 2012

Stagger – Minimal but melodic, deep space pads, and innovative percussion work. This track is emotional and made for the late night dance floor where listeners can really feel the subtle elements of Kumo’s techno.

Raindrops – The natural elements are front and center on this pumping tech-house jam. This track sounds more like a rainstorm than just mere drops but it pulses and flows just like a refreshing afternoon shower.
Last Man Standing – The track evokes the organic sounds of wind and rain with hazy washes of ambiance from analog synths projecting just the scants of melodies. The bass line carries the weight on this ethereal concoction with just enough of a pulse to move things along but subdued like everything else.
Stagger (Brendon Moeller Remix) – Dub techno specialist changes gears for a peppy redo of “Stagger” the brings the summer dance floor heat. Still adhering to the minimal restraint of the original, Moeller uses it as a jumping off point to all places relentless techno resides.

Stagger (Paul Eg Remix) – Brazilian/Swiss artist Paul Eg brings his signature deep tech-house sound touch to this rework of “Stagger”. The result is dubby, head-nodding remix that moves away from the reductive approach of the original for something warmer.

Marc Miroir – Hitting Home Remixes

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2012 by J.D.

As Marc Miroir’s debut artist album “Hitting Home” is on rotation on radio stations; featured in magazines, websites and blogs; and played by a wide variety of DJs around the world; Paso Music is releasing the remixes of this very successful long player.
Opening with the Daniel Stefanik interpretation of “Ritterschlag” where he’s taken the original sounds and created a head-nodding 9 minute melodic dub excursion, perfect for those smoke-filled moments. Long-time buddies Pascal FEOS and Frank Leicher give “The Train” more drive, turning the poignant original into a prime-time bomb. The Pornbugs (aka the label bosses of Bondage Music) along with Dole & Kom have produced a more than excellent powerhouse remix of “Eco Quest”, which still features the hypnotic melody of the original. For those of an old-school nature, the fantastic Karotte remix of “Eco Quest” is also released on vinyl, as well as the Einzelkind remix of “Faces”.

Barker & Baumecker album ‘Transsektoral’ on Ostgut Ton+Free Download

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on June 29, 2012 by J.D.

Techno comes in all shapes and sizes, and few recent outfits embody that truth more obviously than Berlin’s Barker & Baumecker. One operates as Barker/Voltek and the other as nd_baumecker. Both solo projects exhibit unconventional takes on techno inflected by the influence of other genres, from glitch to dubstep to ambient and beyond. Judging from their output so far on Ostgut Ton, one gets the idea that these fellows know a lot about electronic music; their label debut “Candyflip” was a 9-minute opus spelled out in broken beats and trancelike tones, the kind of track that seems to reference a million different things in one coherent, confident statement.

It should come as no surprise then, that their debut album together is a many-sided prism reflecting different iterations of techno from all angles. Titled “Transsektoral”, the album name refers to the duo’s ambition to travel across the entire spectrum of electronic music. That’s what they do on the LP, bridging a seemingly impossible gap between the dubby blobs of ambient opener “Sektor” to the effervescent bubbling of the epic closer “Spur,” like happy hardcore unravelled and disassembled into a soothing afterword worthy of someone like Dntel.

James Iha “Look To The Sky” Solo Album+ New Song (Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2012 by J.D.


As a member of A Perfect Circle, the power pop super-group Tinted Windows, and of course, the Smashing Pumpkins, Iha has gathered musical depth and craftsmanship inspired by his many bands as well as his production work with The Sounds, Whiskeytown and Ladytron, to create a new album offering listeners sophisticated pop melodies, lyrical sharpness and guitar driven rock.

Produced by Iha and guitarist Nathan Larson (formerly of beloved indie rockers Shudder to Think) at Iha’s own studio Stratosphere Sound in New York City, the sessions for “Look To The Sky” were designed to create an atmosphere of freedom, experimentation and shared fondness for a variety of enduring genres: from bright, modern rock, to 60s nuggets and cool, clean 80s new wave.

“I wanted this record to be more eclectic and reflect all of my tastes which is why it took so long,” Iha explains. “It was important to me for the record to be multi-dimensional and complex. Being a part of the Smashing Pumpkins, and working with so many other bands and artists since my last album [1998’s solo debut ‘Let It Come Down’] gave me a fresh perspective on what music could be.”

This free and fun environment attracted friends and peers such as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O and Nick Zinner, Tegan And Sara’s Sara Quin, Fountains Of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger, Antony & the Johnsons and legendary Television guitarist Tom Verlaine

Working with all of these talented people helped the record evolve in great and unexpected ways.
“Look To The Sky” sees Iha returning as a solo artist after nearly a decade and a half, newly inspired, a little wiser and proud to share what he’s learned and created. “I feel like everything should lead up to something and this is a culmination of my journey”

Download:Drop The Lime – Outlaws

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2012 by J.D.

Ahead of the release of his new album ‘Enter The Night’ (out Monday), Drop The Lime is offering a free download of never-before-heard track ‘Outlaws’ through his Soundcloud page now.

With a passion for bass and a thirst for blood, ‘Enter The Night’ sees DTL riding the range from the ashes of rave into the dark heart of rock & roll. Combining the gunslinging swagger of Ennio Morricone, the techno grandeur of Underworld, and the storytelling prowess of Johnny Cash, his music (like his life) is an epic adventure of mystery, heartbreak, and magic.

The world knows Luca Venezia as a globetrotting DJ/producer and the founder of Brooklyn’s Trouble & Bass label. As Drop the Lime, he’s been fearlessly casting spells over clubs and festivals around the world for years, as well as remixing the likes of Robyn and Moby and producing for Spankrock and Bosco Del Rey. Venezia’s name is synonymous with dance music in New York – born and bred in Manhattan, the glittering, grimy pulse of the city is the main inspiration behind DTL’s now-infamous heavy bass sound.
