Temporary Hero - BalletTemporary Hero – the self-proclaimed love child of Thom Yorke + Madonna after a weekend of Depeche Mode – joins the Sidetrak Records ranks with his haunting and wide-ranging electronic single‘Ballet’.  A stunningly intoxicating and emotional remix by André Lodemann looks to be an Ibiza classic in the making with support already received from Robert Owens, Mousse T, Giom and Jon Cutler.  People Get Real add a growling bass and choppy piano to their tech-tinged remix, while Blackhill take things in a groovy, bumping and funky house direction.

Temporary Hero has collaborated with the likes of Mac Quayle (remixer of New Order, Depeche Mode and Donna Summer), Jerome Isma-Ae, Andre Lodemann, The Slips, Chus + Ceballos, James Teej, Andrew Galea, Pete Gooding and Jeremy Sylvester.  His previous releases on the Object Permanence imprint include ‘Youth’, ‘Hate Sux’, ‘Savin’ up 2 Be a Rock + Roll Star’ and ‘Blasphemy’.  Nothing is deliberate. But it is all temporary.

Kruse & Nuernberg release their debut artist album through Lazy Days Recordingsin October.  ‘Let’s Call It A Day’ sees the Hamburg based pair – who have previously released on labels such as Noir Music, Liebe*Detail and their own Save Room Recordings – step outside their boundaries to present an eclectic journey through their musical influences, including Indie luminariesLittle Dragon, Metronomy and Pheonix. Live pianos and guitars meet their electronic world with finesse through 11 songs, moving through genres and tempos seamlessly in what Lazy Days’ boss Fred Everything has called “a classic dance album in the making”.

The album features singer Stee Downes, who collaborated on last year’s #1 ‘Want You In My Soul’ from Lovebirds, Nathalie Claude, who featured on Andre Lodemann’s ‘Searching’ and Japanese singer Miwaki. They also co-produced a piece with Florian Kruse’s brother, and deep house legend, Vincenzo (Dessous, Poker Flat).

Kruse & Nuernberg have been on the forefront of the revival of the Deep House scene in the past few years.  As remixers, they have put their magic touch to artists like Dennis Ferrer and Groove Armada as well as being remixed by legendary producers such as Tom Middleton and DJ Sneak. They are also part of the successful outfit ‘Wiretappeur’, who released on John Digweed’s Bedrock label.

The links between Kruse & Nuernberg and Fred Everything stretch back several years with each being a fan of the other’s work.  Their first release on Lazy Days came in May 2010 and they have now recorded three EPs for the label, including a recent collaboration with Fred.

Akabu – ‘The Phuture Ain’t What It Used To Be'(ZEDDCD020)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2010 by dk

Label: Z Records
Cat no: ZEDDCD020
Distribution: SRD
Released: Monday October 11th, 2010

The debut album from Akabu is a retrospective yet futuristic delivery from Dave Lee, inspired by over 20 years in dance music’s history and touching on live instrumentation, contemporary sounds and dexterous electronic craftsmanship. 

Akabu is the deep house pseudonym of British DJ/producer/remixer Dave Lee who has released under a plethora of other monikers including Joey Negro, Jakatta, Doug Willis, Raven Maize, The Sunburst Band, Sessomatto, and Z Factor. Dave was one of the first artists to incorporate disco samples in house music when he began his production career in 1990. Fast forward 20 years and little has changed – Dave is still experimenting with new techniques, taking inspiration from new artists and using this knowledge of the past in new original creations.

Featuring collaborations with Norway’s’ Boomclap Bachelors (on the album highlight ‘You Want It All’), Andre Lodemann, Foremost Poets, Tony Momrelle, Tanya Michelle and Joel Edwards.The Phuture Ain’t What It Used To Be’ is an ode to an inert love of electronica, “I wanted to call on my love of the first wave of deep warm acidic house like Marshall Jefferson and Larry Heard, combined with some of the contemporary stuff I like such as Carl Craig, Jimpster, Martin Buttrich,” explains Dave.

“Dave has been an inspiration since his release on Transmat. His taste is prime and his music always blows me away whether its as Joey Negro, the Sunburst Band or Akabu. And he does hell-of-a edits too!” Carl Craig, August 2010

Dave’s last studio album with the Sunburst Band was a blend of live disco, soul and funk but Akabu’s longplayer explores a darker and more complex journey. Revisiting the sound of some of his first productions back in the late 80s, Masters of The Universe ‘Space Talk’ and M.D.Emm’s ‘Get Acidic’ (the latter licensed by Derrick May for his Transmat label), and the four earlier Akabu singles released on NRK and Z Records, including ‘Ride The Storm’ and ‘Phuture Bound’ whose Ame remix took the track to a new level, Akabu’s The Phuture Ain’t What It Used To Be’ explores the electrifying analogue sounds of Dave Lee. “After a year producing disco I wanted to do something more electronic and utilize some of the great modern studio technology that’s out there. I’ve still tried to attempt to inject some of the excitement of live players and musicality into the electronic music I produce.”

Awakening the senses with a supernatural atmosphere,Sax My Bitch Up’ introduces some sax riffing from Jim Knight, who has played on many a Sunburst Band track and is also half of the Steely Dan–esque Talc. Norway’s Boomclap Bachelors offer their unique vocals to ‘You Want It All’, a slow burning epic record that builds to a strong climax. Offering a pinch of Detroit with a healthy dose of contemporary input, this release has already seen support from Gilles Peterson & Ewan Pearson to Groove Armada and Laurent Garnier, demonstrating its wide appeal across the board.

‘The Phuture…’ is peppered with mysterious atmospheres and cosmic voyages into outer realms, such as the psychedelic ‘A Little Bit of Kaos’, utilising a recognisable cult sample, and high-energy bass laden ‘Hi Jaxx’. The Paris based Canadian soul singer Tanya Michelle features on ‘Behind The Mask’, a look at changes in personality of people within relationships. “The title of a song is very important to me, Tanya had just ended her relationship a few days earlier and she made the comment “I saw behind the mask”, explained Dave of this retro concoction, “I wanted to do a modern take on the old Murk sound and I thought her bluesy tone would suit that vibe”.

Berliner Andre Lodemann’s involvement on ‘Another World’ came after Dave was inspired by last year’s ‘Where Are You Now’ and approached him to get involved on the album. A stripped back cinematic affair, layered with orchestral strings that simmer with summer vibes, ‘Another World’ compliments the album and adds a mellow side to its bow. The mood turns for ‘Life Is So Strange’ as the album draws to a close, featuring one of the UK’s finest soul singers Tony Momrelle, frontman of Incognito and someone who often draws comparisons with Stevie Wonder. “I wrote ‘Life Is So Strange’ the day after my cat died suddenly,” Dave confesses of this elevating record that takes the depth of soul and elements of early house to create a novel and captivating classic.

Coming full circle the album ends as it began on ‘The Phuture (The Final Chapter)’, closing Akabu’s journey that encapsulates the highlights of the history of house in a new light and mesmerising narrative.
