Giana Factory -Lemon Moon

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2014 by E.N.

GIANA FACTORY LEMON MOON ALBUM QACD007_Often, the best bands make their own luck. That’s certainly the case for Danish trio Giana Factory. Loui Foo (vocals and drum pads), Sofie Johanne (bass and synths) and Lisbet Fritze (guitar) came together after an offhand encounter in 2008 and haven’t looked back since.

“We met each other through the Copenhagen music and art scene. We found out that we shared a vision of creating our own sound, and that we had a mission of getting the music out there.” Giana Factory’s vision morphs into rich, sonic narratives that use tight vocal harmonies and dance-friendly percussive elements to create their experimental and dreamy music.

The record is produced by electronic music maverick Anders Trentemoller. It incorporates personal stories and musings on the interconnectivity of relationships between people and their relationship to the world. “Our intention with the new songs was to cut them to their bones by trusting the melodies, lyrics and sounds enough to let the songs stand naked and uncontrolled’. They likened Lemon Moon’s creative process with building a screenplay, as new characters and storylines entered the picture until the final product materialized, exploring and playing with the concept of time and place, dream and reality.

TRACKLISTING:
1. Right Or Wrong / 2. I Live At Night / 3. Walking Mirror / 4. Lemon Moon / 5. Don’t Fall In Love / 6. Head Up High / 7. Downtown / 8. It´s Your Life / 9. My Power Obey
10. Our Hearts Are Pounding / 11. In Between

Trentemøller – “Lost Reworks” September 1st, 2014.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2014 by E.N.

Trentemøller - Lost Reworks. September 1st, 2014.Trentemøller’s recent album opus Lost already served as the logical continuation of his varied work and delivered his signature sound intact, yet it really didn’t sound like anything he’d ever produced before. Streamlined, song-structured and guitar-driven, whilst still sporting electronic twists Lost boasted a dozen tracks, each offering something of interest for anyone who has ever been a fan of the Copenhagen producer.

As original as it is classic, Lost mixed the tried-and-tested with all sorts of sonic surprises, merging the extrovert and introvert qualities the man has in his command. Also notable for being his most collaborative effort yet, Lost paired him with a vibrant and varied cast of guests – the legendary duo Low, Jonny Pierce from The Drums, Marie Fisker, Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead, Jana Hunter of Lower Dens, Ghost Society and Sune Wagner of The Raveonettes.

Now the new ‘Lost Reworks’ release gleefully rips up the rule book again and adds further electronic elements, as Trentemøller is joined by some carefully-chosen conspirators – Toydrum (aka James Griffith and Pablo Clements of UNKLE), Jenny Wilson, T.O.M. And His Computer, Unkwon and Trentemøller – in dismantling the intricate musical tapestry of the album, recontextualising the instrumental experimentation, the trashed analog consoles, and the entire sweep of influences, from krautrock to classical.

The original version of “River Of Life” abandons its throbbing guitars and soaring strings for dark and retro electroclash tones on Trentemøller’s own remix, and introspective, electro-gaze in the hands of T.O.M. And His Computer. “Come Undone” stalked at a slow and measured pace, and Trentemøller’s steamy new version recalls vintage Goldfrapp in marrying sultry vocals and seductive machine music, while Toydrum beefs up the raw, spiky electro rock elements. The melancholic pop beauty of “Candy Tongue” is remade with ghostly atmospherics and evocative, exotic instrumentation via Jenny Wilson’s version, and while one remix of “Deceive&rdquo ; made its debut in a stunning EP package from earlier this year – Unkwon’s misty, dusty broken beat version – it is counterbalanced by Trentemøller’s own glitchy, cinematic Lost & Found Remix.

For the digital version of Lost Reworks, even more treats abound: Trentemøller’s extended, frisky Club Mix of “Deceive” which turns up the pressure on the beat and the bass; re-arranged melodies and a hypnotic build on Pinkunoizu’s “Gravity” remix and a stripped-back instrumental version of Toydrum “Come Undone” rework. Prior to the album release Unkwon’s stunning re-lick of “Deceive (feat. Sune Rose Wagner)”

Trentemøller lostTrentemøller Reveals Details of Third Album Lost (Out 9/24)
Guest Appearances by Low, Blonde Redhead, Lower Dens, The Raveonettes, Jonny Pierce of The Drums and More

Danish electronic artist Trentemøller has revealed the details for his forthcoming third album, Lost, outSeptember 24th on In My Room. A more streamlined and intricate musical tapestry woven over sleepless nights in his Copenhagen studio, the followup to Into The Great Wide Yonder (2010), documents an artist really hitting his stride. Collaborating with a host of esteemed peers, personal influences and sprouting talent, Kazu Makino (Blonde Redhead)Jana Hunter (Lower Dens), Sune Rose Wagner (The Raveonettes),and Low, among others, are to be found on this new effort. A genuine study in the art of attention to detail,Lost is the kind of record one can only produce after endless months of studio isolation, long nights invested in instrument experimentation, and trashed analog consoles. Though the Trentemøller sound is left intact, as a whole, this album doesn’t sound like anything he’s ever produced before. “People might have wanted something similar to the last album, but if you get to the point where you’re listening to what other people think your sound should be like…well, that’s not for me,” says Anders Trentemøller.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 5, 2012 by E.N.

  • – Assembling thirteen exclusive unheard tracks made for this special release for Crosstown Rebels
  • – Marks the debut Day Zero festival happening in Mexico on the special Mayan calendar prophetic date 21st December 2012
  • – Day Zero features the label’s past, present and future artists such as Jay HazeAcid Pauli. Mathew Jonson, Fur Coat & more

Damian Lazarus, the Crosstown Rebels spearhead infamous his idiosyncratic nature embarks on a daring new project with Day Zero. On 20th – 21st  December 2012 he will stage a festival in sun-soaked Playa del Carmen, Mexico that will celebrate the momentous end of this world cycle, as decreed by the ancient Mayan civilisation.

To commemorate this enigmatic event he asked thirteen artists to create a new track for a special Day Zero compilation. His peers and comrades stepped up to the challenge with Rebel’s artist past, present and future contributing to this momentous collection compiled by Damian Lazarus.

Pier Bucci opens with the eerie and captivating ‘Mayas’ full of his Latin-American spirit. He was introduced to the music world by Crosstown, releasing his first two albums on the label. Next up, Quenum shares his‘Prophecy’ and Mathew Johnson returns to the label with the driving pulses of ‘In Search Of A New Planet With Oxygen’. Johnson delivered a huge remix early in the label’s history from Hiem ‘She’s The One’ and is a pioneer of the underground house movement.

Listen closely to the messages hidden in the knocking drums and trembling tones of ‘Jeel, k´eex’ from Mexican native Metrika. Crosstown’s newest first lady Francesca Lombardo’s contribution ‘Cosmic Dancer’ swells with femininity and allure while Fur Coat, who concocted the last artist album for CR, explain a little more about the significant date in their cut ‘Greed, Insanity’.

Fosky & Bog and the newcomer to the label Jay Haze both contribute epic dancefloor monsters to the collection. Haze is boss of legendary techno imprint Contexterrior and has been living in South America of late, fascinated by its mystical pull.

Supernatural cuts from Eduardo Castillo featuring his baritone opera trained voice and the Israeli Navid Izadi ft KMLN align up with Mike Shannon for his ‘Sunrise’ and the closing moments from Thugfucker & Shaun Reeves and Acid Pauli & Nu bring this otherworldly assembly to a flourishing close

The Day Zero album arrives on the dawn of the 24 hour event that brings together the best electronic music and entertainment from some of the world’s finest DJs as they embrace a new moment in time. The occasion will mark the end-date of a 25,625-year-long cycle and the final cycle of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. At this moment the galactic alignment will occur, the earth will align with the centre of the Milky Way creating a moment for transformation, renewal and change.

Joining Damian Lazarus at the event are Massive Attack’s Robert “3D” Del Naja, UNKLE’s James Lavelle, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Jamie Jones, Trentemøller, Art Department, and more alongside artists from the album including Metrika (live), Acid Pauli, Francesca Lombardo, Amirali (live), Fur Coat, Thugfucker, and outstanding alternative performances, workshops, games from Mayan Culture, and jaw-dropping 3D visuals and projections.

Coachella’s ultimate underdog, stunning all onlookers and becoming the toast of the fest…the biggest revelation of the entire weekend.” – Yahoo! Coachella ’11 Live Review

Trentemoller -Into the Great Wide Yonder+Sycamore Feeling (Official Video)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on April 5, 2010 by E.N.

Danish producer Trentemoller has revealed more details about his forthcoming album, Into the Great Wide Yonder.

The full-length will be released on June 7th, and will come out via his own In My Room imprint. Composed of ten tracks, the record sees Trentemoller experimenting with “more organic and analog” textures, in contrast to the “crisp, digital sheen” that made him famous on his debut, The Last Resort. Reportedly including instruments like bass mandolin, theremin and a music box, Trentemoller nonetheless admits that computers were utilized at some point in the process. “I recorded most of the album in my computer, but in the final stages I transferred all the parts to analog tape through a lot of vintage EQ’s and pre-amps. The tape saturation and the analog outboard really helped getting the warm sound that I was after.” Solveig Sandnes, Josephine Philip and Guillemots singer Fyfe Dangerfield all feature. A single, “Sycamore Feeling,” will precede the album; for a teaser of the results, the official video is below.


Tracklist
01. The Mash and the Fury
02. Sycamore Feeling
03. Past the Beginning of the End
04. Shades of Marble
05. …Even Though You’re With Another Girl
06. Haxan
07. Metamorphis
08. Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider Go!!!
09. Neverglade
10. Tide

Trentemoller will release Into the Great Wide Yonder on In My Room on June 7, 2010.(RA)
