Editions Haighton - Italia '83Editions Haighton are homespun edits of dusty curios by Hotflush Recordings’ Jack Haighton.

The first instalment of a quarterly series takes its cues from the Italian disco scene of the early ‘80s, reworking Cyber People’s ‘Void Vision’ into a Hi-NRG burner fit for the early hours at a former power plant, and JM Band’s ‘Computer Monkey’ into a loopy tool with frills.

Emil Germ ‘Tease And Burn’

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on April 10, 2014 by dk

emil germ cover.s. jpgMusic For Dreams, the label run by esteemed techno and electronica DJ, Kenneth Bager, is releasing an infectious new single from Emil Germ entitled ‘Tease And Burn’

The track, which is already gaining national airplay in Scandinavia – hence its rush release – is the work of 25-year old Emil Germod, a sound designer/producer/musician from Denmark.

The track, which has been likened to a cross between cult New York producer, Arthur Russell (Dinosaur L) and Royksopp has a definitive Balearic and eighties disco vibe.


A characteristic of Emil Germ’s music is his eclectic mix of his very own deep and high-pitched falsetto voice, guest singers, and disco grooves. He insists ‘I can make even the most cheesy ingredient sound cool and inclusive, even a midi slap bass or the use of hero guitar solos’.
Emil first committed his production sensibilities to minimal techno and then later on punk/rock, but with the EMIL GERM project he has found his place in a more pop and disco-orientated expression, where the key goal is to make catchy music with substance.

 The Music For Dreams label specialises in downtempo electronica and Balearic beats and diverse range of chilled electronica releases from artists includingThe Kenneth Bager Experience, Hess is More, Laid Back, Idjut Boys, Cantoma, Lulu Rouge, Grassskirt, DJ Disse, Ganga and more.

Hot Casandra Getaway Heart EP(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 6, 2013 by dk

HOT CASANDRA2013 has been a busy year for London based duo Hot Casandra. Fresh off the back of performances at Pacha, Proud Camden and Café 1001 and with sets at Ministry of Sound, the duo have been spinning their Smooth Electro sounds at top clubs around the London circuit.

Originally hailing from Romania, Hot Casandra are by no means strangers to the limelight. In Romania they enjoyed high profile, with regular appearances on MTV, National Television and Eastern European festivals. Meanwhile on the press front they have seen reviews in FHM, The Guardian and Tillate. But 2013 sees the duo move to the UK as they introduce their brand of Electro the UK crowd.

‘Getaway Heart’ is the new single from the duo. A slow burn Electro groove that works it’s way towards climax. With Paul Ballo on live drums and bass and Elena providing haunting female vocals, the track draws inspiration from acts like Simian Mobile Disco and classic Italo-Disco. The track bubbles on increasingly draws the listener in as it builds in emotion and tension.

Next up on the package is ‘Mouthwatering’. An emotive Electro trip, with 80s Electro influences and great male and female vocals, answering each other as the track rolls on. Synth stabs prevail, alongside driving live drums and thoughtful melodies. Not to be missed!

Ralph Myerz feat. Annie - Take A Look At The WorldRALPH MYERZ
feat ANNIE
Label: Disco Piñata Music
Released: AUGUST 2013

Ralph Myerz returns with the first single from his star studded 3rd Album ‘Supersonic Pulse’, and he’s pulled out all the stops with amongst others George Clinton, Roxanne Shanté, Snoop Dogg & Kurupt guesting.

‘Taker A Look At The World’ is the first single from the album and includes two stars from Ralphs homeland of Norway, Royksopp on production duties, and ‘Annie’ on vocals.

Røyksopp, Annie & Ralph are all from the same music scene in Bergen, which blossomed in the early Noughties with a whole wave of electronic tinged artists emerging at once. As well as Royksopp there was Datarock, Bjørn Torske, Annie, Kings Of Convenience , and Ralph Myerz who after success with music for both adverts and film received an invite to work with Rappers like Snoop and ASAP Rocky in the USA and Canada.

15 years later Ralph is about to release his 3rd solo album and as he explains, he had a vision for album number 3 of bringing all the artists he had worked with past and present together:

When I put this album together I wanted to have all the people I had visualised in my mind that would suit each track perfectly, and I instantly knew when the instrumental for Do The Damn Thang was finished I had to have Snoop & George Clinton on it.
Snoops crew ‘The Dogg Pound’ had already been in my studio in Bergen, Norway recording music so they already liked a lot of my music and had heard a lot of the other tracks that were going on the album, so it was actually quite easy to get it done. Since I already had a connection to Snoop’s crew ‘The Dogg Pound’ I basically just asked them ! People like George Clinton followed on from tha
