Image: 1593292 Tel Aviv Consortium Vol.1 - A sample of the Tel Aviv sound in this day and age. Cutting edge electronics that come from the boiling hot (under) ground of the middle east in 2014. This E.P was made as part of the PUMA LOVES VINYL project - a collaboration between Puma and - an online web radio that functions as a summertime pop up project relocating every year. crew are launching now this sub-label PORT SAID under the name of their Record Library-Bar which is located at the center of Tel Aviv and functions as the ultimate hang out spot for music lovers in town. Port Said is also the homebase and HQ of Fortuna Record - a specialist label that reissues old treasures from the middle east.

The sounds you will hear on this record reflect the current local state of mind, navigating through history, a complex political situation, and a honest need to spread the love of music on the threshold of both the western world and the eastern.

On the first track you'll hear an unreleased track by the multi instrumentalist wiz Kutiman, another treat from this pivotal artist that always blows our mind with his psychedelic forward thinking projects.

A2 will show you what a prolific ground Tel Aviv has become for young beat makers. Inspired by the L.A sound yet giving it an extra edge with a local twist, organic aesthetics and middle eastern spice. Here, Rejoicer - boss of Raw Tapes Records label takes us to a trip through the Ethio-Israeli connection with another exclusive for this E.P!

The B side begins with our favorite club outfit, Red Axes - A production duo that combines a Rock 'n' Roll attitude with a club bang, spiced with tons of humor, lush production and cutting edge sound. This one is inspired by our TEDER trip to Krakow on the summer of 2014, where some of the greatest artists in town joined us for a massive weekendof parties and live sessions in Poland.

The last track has a nice story - as part of our collaboration with Puma, we suggested that the 4th track will be chosen by our radio listeners, so we have posted 10 selected tracks online, and our crowd voted massively for a 17 year oldLava Dome - a super talented kid that we see as a prime representative the next generation of electronic producers to rise up in Tel Aviv.
