Ten years after his first release, UK artist Lone is putting out his first ever commercial mix CD. His entry into the celebrated DJ-kicks series lands on 29th September and features four of his own new and exclusive tracks. Born Matt Cutler and raised in Nottingham, Lone has emerged as a standout artist over the last decade. Starting out making hip hop, he has distinctly evolved with each new release. Yet whether making house, breakbeat or jungle, his music always remains identifiable thanks to its bright melodic colours. As well as running his own Magicwire label—home to early albums like Emerald Fantasy Tracks and recent music from Ross From Friends, who features here, and Project Pablo—he has also released on Werk Discs and Dekmantel. Over the course of three full lengths since 2012, though, he has also become an essential artist in the modern R&S family.
Lone’s DJ-kicks very much feels alive, lived-in and authentic. It is a hugely personal view into his unique musical world and marks another landmark entry into !K7’s long running series.

KEY POINTS CD
• Lone’s first ever commercial mix CD
• Includes 4 exclusive Lone tracks
• Full tour dates to support release

Various – Motor City Drum Ensemble – Selectors 001
Friday, April 15th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Motor City Drum Ensemble – Selectors 001

Nun geben sie dem “Selectors” Konzept auch eine Platform auf ihrem Label mit einer gleichnahmigen Compilation-Serie, die jeweils von einem fähigen DJ zusammengestellt wird. Die ersten drei stammen von Young Marco, Joy Orbison und Motor City Drum Ensemble, der eine handverlesene Auswahl erstklassiger House-, Disco-, Funk- und Soul-Songs vorlegt.

Various – Motor City Drum Ensemble – Selectors 001
Friday, February 12th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Motor City Drum Ensemble – Selectors 001

Image: 1601770 MCDE shares some of his most prized gems on this compilation that kicks of the limited Dekmantel ‘Selectors’ series.

1. DJ Slym Fas – Luv Music
2. House Of Jazz – Hold Your Head Up
3. 20 Below – A Lil Tribute To The Moody Black Keys
4. Risque III – Essence Of A Dream
5. Licky – African Rock
6. Raphael Green – Don’t Mess With The Devil
7. Ahzz – New York’s Movin (Instrumental)
8. Bill Deal – Freak n Freeze

What, exactly, is a selector? Dekmantel has long been determined to find out, even before the Amsterdam-based crew added an official Selectors stage to its annual summer festival in 2014. While the stage has since played host to an elite class of DJs that includes the likes of Floating Points, Mike Servito, Traxx, DJ Harvey, Ben UFO, and Donato Dozzy, to name just a few, Dekmantel came to realize that the Selectors concept needed a larger platform of its own.

As such, 2016 will see the launch of both a limited-capacity festival and compilation series, both bearing the Selectors name. The compilations will come first, with Motor City Drum Ensemble, Young Marco, and Joy Orbison at the helm of the initial three chapters. These are not mix CDs, every Selectors compilation will include a collection of hand-picked, unmixed tracks personally curated by the artist.

Admittedly, drawing a line between “selectors” and mere DJs is an all-but-impossible task—it’s essentially a “you know it when you see it” proposition—but it’s hard to argue that Motor City Drum Ensemble (a.k.a. Danilo Plessow) doesn’t tick all of the required boxes. He’s been digging for records since his teenage years, and his DJing has become the stuff of legend, thanks in no small part to his head-turning sets at the last few Dekmantel festivals.

In truth, Plessow’s relationship with Dekmantel dates back to the earliest days of the Motor City Drum Ensemble project, making him a natural candidate to head up the inaugural Selectors compilation. As expected, he’s thrown himself into the task, selecting a want list from his collection of 15,000 records was no easy task, but getting permission for the final tracklist was even tougher.

One song in particular, Raphael Green’s “Don’t Mess with the Devil,” required him to personally call up a church in St. Louis, Missouri. “The guy, he’s a Bishop,” he says. “When the Ferguson protests were happening, for example, he was on CNN explaining his thoughts on the whole thing, so he’s a known public figure, but nobody really knew that he had this amazing record that was recorded in ’79 or ’80. His voice is just unbelievable. It’s the kind of record that when I heard it the first time, I couldn’t believe that there had only been like 100 copies pressed, and that this wasn’t actually big.”

Motor City Drum Ensemble’s record bag is full of these kinds of gems, but he has no qualms about sharing a few of his secret weapons with a wider audience. “I wanted to get some of the stuff that is really, really hard to get, and make it available for younger people,” he explains. “I used to be in the same situation. Back when I was 18, I would listen to a Rainer Truby mix and he would only play these $400 Brazilian records. I was like, ‘Fuck, how am I ever going to be able to afford these?’ I was glad when there was a reissue, and it’s a bit the same with the compilation now.”
“Basically,” he explains, “the approach for the compilation was, ‘If I walked into a record store, what kind of compilation would I buy?’ That’s what I did.” Available from 13.05.2016

Juju & Jordash – Coffin Train
Thursday, August 1st, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Juju & Jordash – Coffin Train

Image: 1581277 Raised in Haifa, Israel, now located in Amsterdam, this duo of sonic explorers have had acclaimed releases on a host of cult labels like Psychostasia, Underground Quality, Dekmantel & many more.

Having already released the incredible ‘Release The Golem Pt1’ & ‘Jewsex’ on everyone’s favourite NYC label, the pair make ready with their most claustrophobic and menacing outing yet.

The original version on the A Side stays in the same tempo territory as their Dekmantel classic ‘African Flower’ but concocts a much more spacious and heady atmosphere, reminiscent of Mark Gage’s Vapourspce project.

Side B takes us directly to the dancefloor, utilising the same bubbling bass sequence but transposing it onto a devastingly propulsive rhythm track, like the angry cousin of their ‘Bleached Roots’ and ‘Powow’ classics

A formidablle force in modern dance music, at the height of their powers !

Vedomir – Music Suprematism (Marcel Dettman RMXs)
Thursday, June 6th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Vedomir – Music Suprematism (Marcel Dettman RMXs)

Image: 1579839 Dettmann turns over two album tracks from Vedomir’s killer long player on Dekmantel.
Marcel Dettmann makes his debut on the Dekmantel imprint and takes on two Vedomir alias Vakula remixes. So what else to expect but forward thinking techno from the man who has been widely regarded as one of the genres most respected dj’s? Keywords are stripped, dark, raw, hypnotizing and dystopian, we could almost say ‘business as usual’ from this longtime Berghain-resident, who received remixes requests from the likes of Scuba, Modeselektor, Trus’Me and Junior Boys in the past, while zeitgeist-defining labels like Ostgut Ton, Music Man and 50Weapons have been putting out his always-on-point productions Available from 17.05.2013
