Kelpe – I Felt Fuzzy

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on April 19, 2012 by dk

To accompany this week’s vinyl and next week’s digital release of the widely acclaimed new EP from Kelpe (NME, BBC Radio1, Drowned In Sound, XLR8R and others), Svetlana Industries has released a video to accompany the title track, I Felt Fuzzy.

Shot and directed by Jonathan Lieb with additional effects by Filip Stanfield, the video perfectly captures the sunny escapist promise of the tune itself, hitting bang on the mark right now in Spring, season of hope, rebirth and the promise of the Summer to come.

Kelpe is known as one of the founding fathers of the beats scene, releasing his first EP back in 2003 on DC recordings when most people in Europe hadn’t cottoned on to the new sounds emerging and Brainfeeder was a still a twinkle in FlyLo’s eye.
DC was a label better known for new disco releases, but years before anyone tried to give the style a name – remember ‘wonky’? – Kelpe
was blazing a pioneering trail, something for which he’s perhaps never got the credit he deserves.
After three albums and a bunch of EPs he started to release more widely, including a belter of an EP for Black Acre which got on many end of year top tens. Svetlana were regularly blasting Kelpe’s
tracks in gigs and mixes, and naturally asked him to contribute to their popular Shortcast mix series.
This was followed by a great remix for BNJMN on his 141 EP, so it seems like a fitting progression to be releasing one of his records on Svetlana Industries at last.
Featuring remixes from BNJMN, Cupp Cave and newcomers Naïve Machine, the vinyl will be available worldwide on 16th April 2012, with digital following on 24th April.

Svetlana Industries announces next release from Brey, + preview

Svetlana Industries announces debut release from Brey

Svetlana Industries, the label founded in Belgrade, Serbia and now based in London, and that released the debuts from Teebs, BNJMN (under his Jackhigh alias), Nightwave and others, has announced its next release.

Brey is a young Londoner of Angolan origin who’s already attracted plays and praise from Scratcha DVA, Bok Bok, Brackles and others, as well as early profile pieces from Fader, FACT and Red Bull. Despite this he’s actually been building his reputation fairly quietly over the past year, and apart from a Kreayshawn mashup that went semi-viral, an official remix for Javeon McCarthy and a track on Ramadanman’s seminal Fabriclive compilation under the mysterious alias Die Barbie Musik Kollektiv, this is the first public airing for his complex, catchy yet highly original take on UK dance music.

With tracks running from140bpm to 126bpm to 94bpm, the four track EP covers several stylistic bases and takes a more organic approach than most Svetlana releases to date, including vocals in the form of a guest appearance from Pittsburgh rapper Vinny Radio, real brass sections and guitar solos. It’s a mature and original artistic statement from such a young talent who’s already attracting wide attention.

Brasil will be available worldwide on vinyl on 19th March 2012, with digital following on 2nd April.

1000names – Machine City EP (preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on November 15, 2011 by dk

FORMAT: Vinyl/Download
RELEASE DATE: November 14th 2011 (Vinyl) November 28th 2011 (Download)
LABEL: Svetlana Industries
BARCODE: 5055300329905
GENRE: Hip Hop/Beats/Electroboogie

1. La Boheme – 93 BPM
2. Zelda – 90 BPM
3. Planet Video – 100 BPM
1. Machine City – 94 BPM
2. First Postcard From Tokyo – 90 BPM

Svetlana Industries’ connection with Bulgarian duo 1000names goes back to maybe 2006, and they are one of the reasons we set the label up in the first place. So we’re delighted to finally drop their first full official release with us, and we can say that it’s been worth the wait. Following on from their
acclaimed Illuminated Man album on Black Acre, Machine City is in our opinion easily their best work to date.
The five track EP is Svetlana’s format of choice: a concise but unified statement of where the artist is at a moment in time. 1000names have used to Machine City to showcase a new direction, retaining their signature touches – blissful synth melodies, abstract vocal samples – but moving away from the
LA style beats sound towards a sound that Sonic Router described as a “slowed up house sound that’s firmly rooted in hip hop production”.
To us there’s a strong hint of Moroder and late 70s/early 80s new wave in there as well. This is the territory between disco, house, electropop, and hip hop, also being explored by artists like Dam Funk,Funkineven, and Om Unit – danceable but different.
Conceptually the record is a vision of the future. Equal parts Fritz Lang, Steve Jobs and Philip K Dick,it’s neither utopian or dystopian, it is simply machine – but a machine absolutely saturated with emotion. Propulsive, unstoppable, the humanity hidden in snatches of masked speech, occasional glitches in the sound. La Boheme is a miniature disco anthem. Zelda a cloud of Technicolor fog. Planet Video the delirious joy of the mechanised workplace. Machine City is the threat, surveillance, control.
The very Teebs like First Postcard from Tokyo is a euphoric ascent through the clouds to a holiday destination in the sky. 1000names – The Machine City EP teaser by Svetlana Industries

SVET005: Nightwave – The Feel EP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2011 by dk

The Belgrade, Serbia based label Svetlana Industries today announced it will release it’s fourth vinyl EP on Monday 27th June 2011, with digital to follow on 3 July 2011.
The label announced some time ago it was working with Maya Medvesek, the artist known as Nightwave, and formerly known as 8Bitch, who is perhaps best known for her 12” with Starkey’s label Slit Jockey, but as label head Toby explains, the end product is quite different from what they first envisaged: “probably about last summer we came up with a tracklist, but Maya kept writing new tunes and sending them through and every time she did we responded ‘this has to go on the record’. In the end, I called her up and said ‘okay, enough is enough, I’m going in to cut the master tomorrow morning’ and she said ‘I’m actually expecting a remix from Unknown to the Unknown [a.k.a. DJ Haus from Hot City] right now and I think it’s big’. It came through some time in the middle of the night, I got up and downloaded it, told Maya “this is huge, it has got to go on the record”, she instantly agreed, and so I turned up late for the mastering session saying ‘sorry, it’s now a 5 track EP, please don’t put the price up.’” In this way a record is born.
Perhaps one reason for the huge evolution in Maya’s sound – the same thing that may have led her to change her artist name at the same time – is the fact that she’s started to become a fixture on London’s club scene, playing warm up to her heroes Drexciya (in their Dopplereffekt guise) as well as forming part of the line-up of London’s booming warehouse scene. This experience of playing to a hot sweaty dancefloor seems to have injected a tougher element to her IDM and techno fixations, and the results are something new. Maybe, as Aphex Twin’s Rephlex Records used to say, it’s Braindance.
Title track Feel is breathless builder at a dancefloor friendly 135bpm, taking techno architecture and giving it a UK bass interpretation, while Night Bird takes equal measures of heavy Detroit techno and more modern footwork sounds, layering a sweet melodic top onto a tense and hyperactive base to bake a very new kind of pie, joyous and uncertain in equal measure.
While Maya’s leftfield take on the dancefloor dominates the X side, the flip takes us back to the IDM of the 90s, reminiscent of Warp masters like the Black Dog: cinematic and grand, an aerial taxi ride in an anti-gravity car. This is all about creating new spaces in your headphones.
That is, until, like running into a brick wall, you hit the remix of Night Bird by Unknown To The Unknown, the alter ego under which Hot City’s DJ Haus has been establishing a new sound, adding a dread tech menace to the sounds of contemporary Chicago. From the first note this remix kicks, you know it’s big, coming on like the midpoint of DJ Rashad, Diplo and Chicago house.
The EP has attracted more dancefloor attention that any previous Svetlana release, with support from SBTRKT, Addison Groove, Brackles, Jackmaster and Bok Bok among others, and we specially selected techno specialists Curved Studios in London to give a heavy and saturated dancefloor sound to the vinyl.
The artwork sums up the headlong journey to encapsulated in the record and comes from original Svetlana visual masterminds Nous Sommes Des Soleils, based in Stuttgart, Germany, and one of the famous Svetlana tee shirts is shortly to follow.
Dropping just in time for a heavy summer of clubbing, The Feel EP is the coming of age of a much tipped young artist and something of a new a flavour for Svetlana at the same time.
