Thursday, January 12th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Zerolex – M.I.L.D.

Image: 1608180 Zerolex is born in 2011 – being a prolifc producer, he had formed
a duet with Superpoze and in 2012 has joined Cotton Claw. In the
mean time, he was also perfecting his own productions.
Fed by black music and by hip-hop, the 23-year old producer hailing
from Besançon, France has dug into the world of beatmaking before
broadening his horizon to electronic music. Inveterate and passionate
digger, he got into Dorian Concept, Dimlite, Flying Lotus and many
more. But Zerolex has also grown up thanks to fated encounters – he
met Zo aKa La Chauve- Souris, Lilea Narrative and Yoggy One, who
became his frst in?uences into the electronic scene. That being prior
he joins them on stage under the moniker Cotton Claw. The Cotton
Claw experience has thus enabled him to explore new musical felds
and experiment more.
After three EP – Floating in solo (Eklektik, 2013), Dusted with Cotton
Claw (Cascade Records, 2014), Eclipse in collaboration with Holy
Two (Cascade Records, 2014), the Volutes album (Cascade Records,
2015) and Elusive EP (Cascade Records, 2016) with Cotton Claw,
Zerolex gets back to work with his debut album M.I.LD – set to be
released this fall. M.I.L.D is more electronic and the textures are as
multiple as Zerolex’s inspirations. All composed on MPC, the tracks
on the album mixes samples, retro synths and contemporary beats.
M.I.L.D gives way to personal productions – a re?ection of his unique
universe – setting a new etheral direction, where sparkling and
melodic sounds get along future beats.

The James Hunter Six – Whatever It Takes (LP+MP3)
Friday, December 22nd, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The James Hunter Six – Whatever It Takes (LP+MP3)

Image: 1616657 A permanent fixture in the world of Rhythm and Soul, James Hunter follows up five critically acclaimed albums with his latest recording, Whatever It Takes, for New York City’s renowned label, Daptone Records. At the height of his famed recording career, Hunter and Daptone co-founder and producer Bosco Mann recorded an elegantly crafted collection of 10 originals that are evermore poignant and compelling than the singer’s previous works. The James Hunter Six and Mann recorded Whatever It Takes straight to tape at Daptone’s Penrose Studios in Riverside, California. Whatever It Takes will be internationally released on February 2, 2018. Interviews and hi-res JPGs are available upon request.

The first Brit to sign to Daptone Records, Hunter is revered by critics both in his native UK and stateside, with MOJO touting Hunter as “The UK’s greatest soul singer” and the Los Angeles Times praising his “extraordinary soul voice.” Of his prior recordings, Rolling Stone called his U.S. debut People Gonna Talk, “a treat not to miss” and his second album “unbelievably awesome,” while The New York Times noted of The Hard Way, Hunter’s “tight, slithery groove” and “sweet growl.” Hunter’s accolades include milestones of reaching #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, a GRAMMY® Award nomination for “Best Traditional Blues Album”, years as a singer touring and recording with Van Morrison, and many TV appearances on Conan, Later…with Jools Holland, and other late night TV shows.

Subsequent to his acclaim as one of today’s renowned soul singers, Hunter’s restless genius penning emotive and captivating works results in his best written compositions to date on Whatever It Takes. The needle drops on “I Don’t Wanna Be Without You” with saxophones grabbing your collar, pulling you close and moving you over the undulating curves of a rhumba. His words curl casually into your ear alongside the coquettish bubbling of the organ. The casual confidence of a song-smith who’s honed his craft beyond reproach, Hunter’s effortless intimacy on the track drives a perfect synchronicity with its crooning melodies, harmonies, and rhythms. A unified devotion serving only their master’s voice, his almost violently tender voice plucks lyrics off a seemingly endless vine and feeds them to the listener with the eager patience of a lover.

The mood and tempo then climb up into the swaggering backbeat of the title track. Drums then tear into the bottom of the groove with the full-throated rapture of “I Got Eyes.” Hunter is egged on by complicit background singers here and there. They ease in and out of Whatever It Takes, serving harmonies like tuxedoed waiters in an expensive restaurant, offering perfect pairings for each melodic course.

“Mm-Hmm,” suddenly a tender mood hits. Verses of regret cascade in delicate shapes over dancing rhythms. A word-less chorus paints a painfully detailed picture of misfortune with an eloquently barren hum. Then, a bang. “Blisters,” an instrumental cigarette before you have to get up and turn the record over. Hunter’s guitar work is fearless like a buck knife carving initials into the knobby bark of a Freddy King shuffle.

Take a breath. Side Two: “A tender word too few, came a half a day too late…” “I Should’ve Spoke Up” comes pitter-patting down a rain-soaked sidewalk, lost in sweet, soft, sentimental regret. Then come the talkings-to. “Show Her,” with ostinato bass, drums and organ scrawling “actions speak louder” dutifully on the chalkboard behind Hunter’s lessons. The frenetic tutorial of “Don’t Let Pride Take You for a Ride” practically tears itself apart in its final cautionary refrains. “How Long” is a yarn spun out on a porch with its gospel harmonies and foot stomping. And stepping out just as he stepped in, “It Was Gonna Be You,” an affectionate simplicity and sincerity that defies the quirkiness of the tim-tom clockwork over which it’s delivered.

There is a common theme on Whatever It Takes. It’s not a record about infidelity, shallow seductions, fleeting backdoor trysts, or any of the other common clichés of R&B. These are poetic testaments to truer love. Loyalty, devotion, humility, and the inevitable regret of those who take love for granted. Clearly inspired by his new bride, Hunter is singing about the preciousness of a love he plans to keep, Whatever It Takes.

Jane Weaver – The Amber Light
Thursday, June 9th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Jane Weaver – The Amber Light

Image: 1604540 When a handful of broadsheet music columns and reputable blog pages began to mention the vaguely familiar name Jane Weaver in the “Here’s One We Missed” themed features during 2014s end of year round-ups it became quickly apparent that the singer’s concept album The Silver Globe had already independently garnered a “must have” status amongst virtually any self-respecting music buyers. But unlike so many other big label “campaigns” that vied for PR attention via ego-fuelled video promos and down your throat advertising, this unassuming, dedicated, focused piece of experimental female vocal pop was in no way spoon fed to editors nor playlisters. Nor did it fall within the lines of what might have been considered fashionable or culturally relevant. The Silver Globe defied species, and for once, was judged on its own merit as a brilliant uncompromising pop record. The sixth album by a long-standing pillar of the North West music scene (loosely based on a lost Polish dystopian feature film and a French novella featuring a personnel of vintage Atari music composers next to Australian synth pioneers) was a simply typical product of the way Jane Weaver has always operated – as an independent and resilient female experimental songwriter, on her own label, on the outskirts of anything that resembles a music industry. Throughout her twenty-year “career” she has stayed focused, avoided whimsical fads and distractions and used her experience to work as hard as she can when she can. By Christmas The Silver Globe had been announced as Piccadilly Records’ best album of the year, earned a “worldwide” top ten track of the year accolade by Gilles Peterson, gleaned across the board full-stars and thumbs up from the music press, benefitted unanimous repeat plays from virtually every specialist DJ on BBC6 Music (amongst many more global radio stations), found DJ mix support from Andrew Weatherall, and filled most of the pages in a twelve month diary with gig and festival requests. Meanwhile, Jane’s own Bird Imprint (via Finders Keepers) has to worked around the clock to keep up with stock demands of her new (and old) music. Album collaborators such as David Holmes, Andy Votel and BC Camplight share gushing pride in the project and with this unanimous critical support (and long earned respect) Jane has reacted in the only way she knows best – to keep creating.

In March, barely six months since its initial release, following tours with friend and sonic sister figure Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab) and one time backing band Black Rivers (two thirds of Doves), Jane will release an expanded edition of The Silver Globe – including a second full-length disc called The Amber Light which follows the original LP with the same dedication and adventurous zeal as its much loved synth driven sister record. With a title that alludes to the toils of trepidation and a running theme of industrial procreativity and DIY handy craft, The Amber Light carves a niche between new age motivational music, radiophonic folk and snarling krautrock echoing the kosmische stylings of The Silver Globe with the punk urgency of 80s domestic-synth pop. Featuring four brand new songs, three exclusive instrumental themes (including a commissioned theme from an American vampire film) and three new collaborative re-workings/duets based on tracks from The Silver Globe, this extensive package harbours work from Tom Furse (The Horrors), Andy Votel, Suzanne Ciani, members of Demdike Stare and original Silver Globe inhabitant Pete J. Phillipson. Substantiated by other extra format editions, including a silver vinyl version of The Silver Globe, a series of compact cassettes and a single release of standout robotic roller rink track Don’t Take My Soul (presented digitally as well as a split single with Bird Records label mate Tender Prey) Jane’s expanded Silver Globe/Amber Light project reciprocates the positive energy shared by her loyal readership and a wide host of new converts who have allowed Jane’s self-sufficient songs and synthetic soundscapes to flourish on he cusp of 2014/2015. Showing little signs of slowing down, Jane Weaver alongside her Bird Records family looks set for an airborne year. The Silver Globe is still turning and catching many a siege in its electric rays.

Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir – Club Scam EP
Friday, January 23rd, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir – Club Scam EP

Image: 1594937 Detroit Techno legend Anthony “Shake” Shakir is a person who should need no introduction. He has been a long time veteran of the scene since the late 1980’s, releasing music using many different pseudonyms and working alongside other heavy hitters including, Carl Craig, Keith Tucker, Juan Atkins and many more throughout his long career. A career that has seen him consistently on the cutting edge of Techno, releasing ground breaking records, setting up seminal record labels and building near mythical status within the global electronic music community.

The “Club Scam EP” was originally released in 1993 and lead track “That’s What I Want” is based around an inspired chopped up vocal sample lifted from the B-52’s 1982 underground hit “Mesopotamia” used here to devastating effect across 2 different mixes and featuring Shake’s trademark Garage-like skippy drum programming. “The Ying & Yang” and “My Mantra” are much deeper affairs, 2 variations of the same track building slowly into cascades of insistent drum programming and futuristic Detroit pads while retaining enough bounce to rock even the staunchest of dance-floors. Basically, the “Club Scam EP” is the real deal, a true connoisseurs record, one for the heads, but one for the feet also, Shake’s music manages to stimulate the mind and make you want to dance at the same time. Legendary stuff indeed.

This 2015 re-press and re-master has been brought to you with the cooperation and full permission of KMS Records, Detroit, MI. and features all original 1993 label artwork.

Julien Mier – Out Of The Cloud
Thursday, January 15th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Julien Mier – Out Of The Cloud

Image: 1594750 Out Of The Cloud is some sort of full circle for me. It’s a
disclosure from the last EP when we moved from the house
next to the junkyard and a fabric that made coffins (from the
period I wrote Jane’s Junkyard.) We moved to a village at
the border of the Veluwe (Wenum-Wiesel.) I grew up in a
similar village near the dunes at the other side of the country,
so returning to nature has become a returning point to truly
realize where I come from.
In 2013, my girlfriend and me owned a cat that ran away
from our house next to the junkyard and never got back. After
her disappearing we picked up a brother and sister cat from
our local animal shelter that we called Sketch (named after
the numerous brown, black and red dots and stripes on her
back.) and Storm (as he’s completely black with a couple of
white spots, looking like thunder.) These are the cats that
are featured on the album cover. The week before we would
move to our cabin in the woods, our cat Sketch got injured.
She crawled under a barbed wire fence and receiving a
serious injury. During her recovery we moved and nearly
escaped from our villain landlord that destroyed our mailbox
and stole our mail that was in it. It was a dark period that can
be found on Jane’s Junkyard.
This mini-album, being an anchor point for a new timeframe,
started on the yard where we live now. The place is like an
island in a forest with a few other people living on it. It has
been an old rural farm, with plenty of space to grow our
own vegetables and find eggs. We enjoy the company of
two gooses, a horse, a total of 7 cats, 2 guard dogs and a
crazy amount of chickens walking over the place. Out Of The
Cloud is the transition between leaving all the bad things
behind and moving on. Finally in nature again, finding peace,
tranquility and balance in our lives. The isolation confronted
me a lot for who I am. This mini-album is a metaphor for
escaping and leaving super dense urban areas and enjoying
and accepting the great wide open.

an amazing experience.
While genres are disparate – hiphop, future beats, deep house etc.. – the
creative concept isn’t. From the minor details of thoughts put into it, to the
artistes’ passion and competence, every single contribution is accounted
for into making this a really special affair.
“Feelings in Colour” is the thread that weaves the music into the movement-
cut from the same cloth. We truly hope you enjoy listening, as much as we
did putting this together.

Youngsta & Seven – Architects / War Cry
Sunday, January 5th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Youngsta & Seven – Architects / War Cry

Image: 1586901 Having spent well over a decade at the forefront of the dubstep scene – as DJ, FWD>> resident, Rinse FM show host, tastemaker and club promoter (Contact) – Youngsta has recently been making powerful inroads into production, and his latest Tempa release is a collaborative 12″ with Seven.

It’s their first release together since 2009’s ‘Masai Mara’, which was released on N-Type’s Wheel & Deal records, and finds them ramping up the dread for a pair of intense, eyes-down floor movers.

‘Architects’ opens in a cascade of synthetic notes and a shredding bass drone. A minute later, the floor abruptly drops out, with a burst of sub-bass that sends the track plummeting downwards amid snapping snares and intricate runs of struck percussion.
‘War Cry’ is at once sparser and more anthemic, opening in a towering haze of synthetic strings that recall the grandeur of classic sci-fi soundtracks. It subsequently plunges deep into the echo chamber, pairing dubbed out percussive with engine rumble subs to create the impression of seemingly endless space. Available from 16.12.2013

Various – Muscle Tuff
Thursday, September 19th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Muscle Tuff

Image: 1582499 MUSCLE TUFF is THE GYM’s label compilation. Each artist took a different approach to create mind blowing workout music. This compilation proves that GYM aficionados can be melancholic and deeply existentialistic, meditating on the world’s serious issues, while gently pumping iron.
THE GYM emerged out of an old circle of friends, throwing parties and DJing together, while slowly building their individual careers. It became a record label when co-owners Brandt Brauer Frick made their first steps in the music scene. Other GYM members include film & video producers, club curators and bodybuilders.
MUSCLE TUFF is a snapshot of the contributors’ current state of mind. Eight of nine tracks have been produced exclusively for this compilation.
Berlin-based singer and producer Josa Peit opens with “Waste”, a hypnotic soul sketch, her vocals beautifully fragile and intense, with analogue synths creating sonic Alice In Wonderland moments.
Brandt Brauer Frick play a fast and raw Techno track. One feels like working out in the jungle, or participating in a ritual worship of an archaic goddess. This time, they used only synths, as Juno-106, SH-101 or Nord Drums, and left piano and other acoustic instruments aside, contradicting their signature sound.
Offenbach-based Bodo Elsel delivers a radical old school approach, a bone dry one-take house miniature, crooning “I Can’t Reset My Mind” in his unimitable sloppy style, over cascades of dry 707, 808 and SP12 beats and claps.
Copenhagen producer and long-time collaborator James Braun teams up with Dan M for “People Move”, a slow burner of the kind that are truly hard to find and that take you from a low level into haunting ecstasy.
Next up is Berlin’s 20 year-old house, bass and hiphop prodigy Max Graef, His exceptional musical skills came to the labels attention during an in-store gig at the legendary OYE RECORDS in Berlin. He is a unique talent and musically wise beyond his years. Enjoy “Nr 3” and brace yourself for his upcoming “Get Big Fast” EP on THE GYM.
For those who know THE GYM’s former releases, it’s evident that Dollkraut can’t miss. The Dutch analogue sound wizard keeps on fascinating us with his golden touch for pop moments. “Catch My Soul” is an old pearl and one of Dollkraut’s most housy tracks. As it has never been released on vinyl and has proven to be a long time GYM mover it had to be on MUSCLE TUFF.
THE GYM’s brotherhood with Tartelet Records keeps on flourishing on Tartelet’s label head Muff Deep’s contribution: “Let’s Go To The Gym”! It’s hot & sweaty and it gets you. It sounds like a drunken Theo Parrish in a Honda, caught in a thunderstorm on his way to THE GYM, trying to work the MPC. Kind of.
One of the clubbiest tracks on the album is supplied by Freude am Tanzen and BPitch boy Douglas Greed, whose straight and no-bullshit techno track “Raw And Order” leads from agitating percussion into synth madness, GYM music at its purest. On its finishing track, MUSCLE TUFF opens up into the glamorous new wave disco world of the mysterious Frenchman Bernard Crochet. He is an almost entirely unknown face to the
electronic music scene, except for his 2012 debut with Dollkraut. We know nothing about him, and it’s hard to situate him in any context in 2013. One thing is certain, he has access to some crazy rare vintage gear and he’s not afraid of big emotions!

A1. Josa Peit – Waste
A2. Brandt Brauer Frick – Two In A Bush
A3. Bodo Elsel – Reset My Mind
B1. James Braun & Dan M – People Move
