Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One) – Tuxedo II (LP+MP3)
Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One) – Tuxedo II (LP+MP3)

Image: 1609089 “The only time you wear a Tuxedo is when it’s time to party.”
So says legendary West Coast player Snoop Dogg on the opening track
of Tuxedo II. The blessing of the Doggfather is of special importance to Mayer
Hawthorne and Jake One, whose second album as a duo finds them at the
forefront of a new wave of gangster boogie – one that owes as much to G-funk
as P-funk. This is the territory of pre- and post-hydraulic low riders: a mélange
of Cali boom-bap, analog synth bass and elegant disco that resonates truth
and authenticity in an era where so many are faking the funk.
Bonding over a shared love of Chic, Parliament, and the other signs in the
greater funk Zodiac, Mayer Hawthorne (Aquarius) and Jake One (Taurus)
were early predictors of the sea changes that American music would undergo
in 2016. Their first release in March of 2015 debuted at #1 on iTunes
America’s RnB charts, christened as “Dance Floor Catnip” by the Boston
Globe, and “Pure disco-funk hot fire” by Okayplayer. Considering their
individual successes (Mayer’s four solo albums, Jake’s production work for
the likes of Drake, Future, The Weeknd, and De La Soul) and five GRAMMY
nominations between the two of them, it’s no surprise that their powers
combined have yet again yielded a bevy of absolute slappers that are
packaged perfectly for dance parties in 2017. The material here, while wholly
original, is an exercise in honoring its forebears. Tuxedo’s II recalls the future
funk wobble of Zapp, Gap, Jam/Lewis and Junie Morrison, while nodding
lyrically to Mtume, Jodeci and Cameo. The crystallization of the album’s
concept comes courtesy of its message of universal love, thanks to the
signature combination of soul and pop sensibility that have come to define
Mayer’s hooks.
“You gotta do what you love…” says Mayer in a recent interview with
Nordstrom’s style blog, one of the many fashion outlets to cover Tuxedo’s
rise. After all – the transcendental ritual of the party and the rippling self
affirmation of the funk are of one spirit: the spirit of self-love…of self
expression. Tuxedo II is a modern testament to unity and positivity in trying
times. It is a reminder that the dance floor will always be there to welcome
you, whoever you are.

Rüba KPO – Based On Misunderstandings 09
Friday, October 7th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Rüba KPO – Based On Misunderstandings 09

Image: 1605951 RüBA KPØ is up next on the ninth edition of the Based On Misunderstandings singles.

TRACKLISTING
A1. We Are World
A2. We Are World (Eddy & Dus
Remix)
B1. We Are World (Simbad Suite)
B2. We Are World (Simbad Dub)

For Sonar Kollektiv the 12inch series Based On Misunderstandings is
something like a testing ground for new projects, sounds and trends of
aesthetics. RüBA KPØ is not a veteran’s hard rock line-up like the name
might suggest, but a four-headed hydra that patched things up in 2009 to
turn everything upside down we always thought we knew about club
music. A prime release on King Sound Music in 2013 targeted a first
direction, now the gloves are taken off.
“We Are World” is a true challenge for any listening habit without losing
any catchiness though. A downright minimalistic techno track with an extra
overwhelming bassline and a mad acid arpeggio is carried by a whimsical,
pastoral choir into heaven. A concept captivating in the original version
incredibly. The remixes by Simbad and Eddy & Dus urge the mischief of
this composition to even riskier places. At the end of the day is this 4-track
EP keeping everybody on their toes and one will wonder once again: Is
this all just a misunderstanding or is this after all the sound of the future?

Posted in Features, Magazine | Comments Off on Staff Charts 2005

Holy moly, the year 2005 is almost over. And so many changes happened we can’t even remember. Most recently we had to congratulate Mrs. Merkel for becoming the first female chancellor of Germany, but honestly nobody really cared. As always the much more important news came from overseas. Have you heard that our beloved newlyweds Jessica and Nick split up after they had stolen the hearts of audiences everywhere? And Britney sold Kevin’s Ferrari. Oh boy…But through all these times of melancholy one thing will remain the same and stay forever, and that’s our pure love for music.

So in good ol’ tradition we asked around what Groove Attack’s employees have been listening to in 2005. Read on ‘cuz this list is for you …
