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

Five Years Of Diynamic-Charity Compilation

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 20, 2012 by E.N.

Featuring reworks of the Diynamic catalogue from Hot Chip, Digitalism, Cassius, WhoMadeWho plus exclusive music from the family.

All benefits of this compilation will be donated to Kinderhospiz Sternenbrücke, an organization that accompanies terminally ill children in the last time of their lifes. The Kinderhospiz is Hamburg-based and currently collecting for a room for music-therapy.

Five years of Diynamic – it´s time to celebrate:

  • founding the sister-label 2DIY4
  • opening a club – EGO in Hamburg
  • sending its artists all around the globe
  • more than 50 releases
  • a highly successful existence

This charity compilation is Diynamic´s gift for all of you.

Spread across two CDs, one to show Diynamic´s current sound and one to cross the rugged borders of house-music and to refresh Diynamic´s past releases.

During these five years Diynamic has become a big family and each member plays a part in their fifth birthday compilation. Solomun, Stimming, David August, H.O.S.H., UNER, Ost & Kjex, DJ Phono, Adriatique, Thyladomid, Hunter/Game and Liem have all produced EXCLUSIVETRACKS for the first CD of the compilation that clearly define Diynamic´s current sound.

On the second CD artists from fresh and diverse genres of music put their touch to the catalogue of Diynamic, making remixes, reworks or straight cover songs from the catalogue. Hot Chip, Digitalism, Cassius, WhoMadeWho and many more have taken part on this charity-project to increase the donation for Kinderhospiz Sternenbrücke charity.

This compilation is a keepsake for both those that have followed Diynamic’s vision over the past years and new introductions. It´s a milestone in the labels history and offers back a reward to those that need it.

Solomon said of the release, “We always had the idea to do something special for our 5 years compilation and that it had to be a charity cd to give something back. We are very thankful about how everything is running and when we heard about the kinderhospiz in hamburg we know immediately that is the right one we are looking for and we decided to spend the money we earned with the project.”

French Duo Housse de Racket release debut album Alesia on November 1st via Kitsune

Check out a sneak preview of the new album HERE!

French synth-rock duo Housse de Racketis back with a brand new album Alesia, out this August. Alesia comes as a follow-up to their wildly successful debut, Forty Love, which garnered critical acclaim. The first available track from the explosive new album Alesia, seen on Kitsune Maison 10, is “Chateau,” check out the remix HERE.

The French duo will be touring throughout America in December with fellow Frenchmen, pop trio Yelle.

For Alesia, Housse de Racket has teamed up with French super-producer, Phillipe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Rapture) to create a collection of eleven electro-pop songs in the vein of the bands’ own wide range of musical influences; from Ennio Morricone to David Bowie. The result is a unique compilation of tracks that embody the sound Housse de Racket has made famous, both through their first album and their live show. Recorded half in French and half in English, Alesia is an evolution of sound; a bold new direction for the bands’ sophomore album.

Housse De Racket, which translates in English to ‘tennis racket cover,’ are Victor Le Masne and Pierre Leroux. The two are highly sought-after musical collaborators with impressive resumes; they’ve worked with the likes of Chilly Gonzales, Phoenix, and Air.
