Aber jetzt ist 2015 und damit klar: Ja, Mono & Nikitaman haben eine neue Platte gemacht. Sie trägt den Titel “Im Rauch der Bengalen” und ist das bisher beste Album der beiden.

“Wir haben uns durch unseren unbändigen Freiheitsdrang in den letzten Jahren etwas aufgebaut, aber sind irgendwann an einen Punkt gekommen, an dem wir uns durch unseren eigenen Perfektionismus und die Erwartungshaltung der anderen alles andere als frei gefühlt haben”, blicken M&N zurück. Die logische Konsequenz: Eine Auszeit von der Musik. Zuerst denken die beiden erst mal gar nicht mehr ans Texte schreiben oder Lieder machen – aber schon ein Jahr später stehen sie wieder gemeinsam im Studio, produzieren drauflos und schreiben gemeinsam erste Texte.

Irgendwann ist klar: Das was hier gerade ganz sorglos und ohne Druck entsteht, ist nichts anderes als “Im Rauch der Bengalen”, das fünfte gemeinsame Album von Mono & Nikitaman. “Dadurch, dass wir niemandem etwas schuldig waren und keiner auf etwas gewartet hat, haben wir ganz anders Musik gemacht als in den Jahren davor.” Die beiden stürzen sich nicht nur in die Produktionsarbeit, sondern arbeiten auch mit neuen Musikern zusammen und gründen ihr eigenes Label M&N Records.

Hamad Kalkaba And The Golden Sounds – Hamad Kalkaba And The Golden Sounds
Monday, November 6th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Hamad Kalkaba And The Golden Sounds – Hamad Kalkaba And The Golden Sounds

Image: 1616443 “Hamad Kalkaba and His Golden Sounds 1974 – 1975” I remember the day clearly. I was searching for treasures in a record shop in Yaoundé, the Capital city of Cameroon, when suddenly I came across a 7-inch record with a picture of a young man wearing a traditional hat and bearing the marks of several imposing vertical scars on the side of his face, carved when he was just a boy as a reminder of his heritage in the Musgum tribe of the northern part of the country.

The record contained two songs – ‘Gandjal Kessoum’ and ‘Touflé’ – by an artist I had never heard of before named Hamad Kalkaba. Both cuts were raw classics of fuzzed-out bass, pin-sharp horns, built upon the unshakable foundation of Northern Cameroon’s mightiest rhythm: the Gandjal. The shop owner – who noticed that was listening to the same record over and over again – finally said to me ‘There is another single with a green cover of the same artist, if I am not mistaken’.

Over the next six years I searched for that ‘green cover’ and finally found it in a record collection belonging to an old bar in Parakou in northern Benin. While most of the records had been beaten and worn by a life spent in the jukebox, this one had been sitting in its paper sleeve for forty years, untouched and unplayed, seemingly waiting for us to pick it up and rip the two soulful Gandjal tunes from it, the masterpieces ‘Fouh Sei Allah’ and ‚Tchakoulaté’.

These two records, plus a third simply named ‘Nord Cameroon Rhythms’ constitute the entire discography of Hamad Kalkaba. Neglected for decades by all but the most devoted collectors of Afro music, Hamad Kalkaba and the Golden Sounds at long last gathers together the body of work of one of Cameroon’s forgotten geniuses.

But unlike many musicians who emerged from nowhere, recorded a few singles and vanished again, Kalkaba hadn’t disappeared. Far from it. He was a distinguished public figure, a retired Colonel in the army of Cameroon, and a former member of Cameroon’s Olympic Selection Committee. When we tracked him down he was serving as president of the Confederation of African Athletics. And Although Kalkaba’s job kept him busy, and he seemed initially dismissive of the music he’d made as a young man, he turned out to be an enthusiastic ally in this project. He arranged interviews, helped fill in the blanks and, when we finally met him in Yaoundé in 2016, provided us with photographs, lyric sheets and notes.

During the interview Kalkaba explained how the songs recorded in the mid 1970s were part of a movement, a movement initiated by musicians from all around Cameroon who, with the help of keyboards, drum kits and electric guitars, had started to modernize the traditional rhythms of their regions. For Kalkaba it was no different and backed by his band the Golden Sounds, devoted himself to the promotion of the sounds of northern Cameroon.

One of the aims of Analog Africa is to showcase the colorful diversity of styles that exist in Africa and its diaspora and today we are very proud to be able to give these Gandjal tunes their first worldwide release.

Various – Jukebox Mambo Vol.3
Friday, September 15th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Jukebox Mambo Vol.3

Image: 1611995 • Jazzman Records releases the third volume of its Jukebox Mambo compilation series, artfully selected by DJ Liam Large.
• A journey through the popular American music of the 1950s influenced by exotic rumba and Afro-Latin seasoned rhythm and blues.
• Featuring rarities and unearthed gems from Percy Mayfield, Roy Gaines, Chuz Alfred, Monogram Caribbean Orchestra, and many more.
• The twenty-four track compilation comes complete with in-depth track notes and photographs, as well as a deluxe double vinyl edition with gatefold sleeve, and a super limited edition vintage style 6 x 10″ book set – with unique artwork and four exclusive bonus tracks

Since the release of their first Jukebox Mambo compilation album in 2012, Jazzman Records, with the curatorial expertise of DJ Liam Large, have been opening ears and minds to the delights of Latin-tinged Rhythm & Blues. This, the third release in the series, sticks squarely to the tried and tested formula of its predecessors, combining a crate-digger’s passion for the obscure with an ear for instant dancefloor crowd pleasers.

In a congested field of R&B comps, Jukebox Mambo stands out uniquely in shedding light on the era of Latin American and Caribbean influence, a sensual rhythmic shift which continues to be felt in modern music today.

Opener, The Emperor’s ‘Tough De Times (Things Getting Tough)’ is a classic example of Large and Jazzman’s idiosyncratic capacity to bring striking singularities to light, a beguiling and seductive blend of jazz, blues and Trinidadian calypso. Other highlights include the slinky rumba-blues of Percy Mayfield’s lustful ‘Loose Lips’, the only known recording by female blues shouter Ethel Boswell on the track ‘No More For You’, and Chuz Alfred’s powerful rendition of the Duke Ellington standard ‘Caravan’. Elsewhere, Jukebox Mambo 3 is dominated by virtuosic performances, from the smooth tenor vocals of Roy Gaines to the polyrhythmic swing of the Monogram Caribbean Orchestra, and the Syrian-American jazz stylings of Eddie Kochak.

The compilation comes with in-depth track notes and photographs, is available as a deluxe double vinyl tip on gatefold as well as a super limited edition vintage style 6 x 10″ book set – with unique artwork and four exclusive bonus tracks.

Lovingly compiled, artfully arranged and expertly annotated, Jukebox Mambo Volume 3 is another immersive gaze into an era of musical history that still carries a unique influence today. This one is for the crate diggers and music lovers alike!

Peter Gordon & Love Of Life Orchestra – Condo
Wednesday, September 6th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Peter Gordon & Love Of Life Orchestra – Condo

Tracklisting:
A1. Condo
A2. Neighbours
A3. Candy Store
B1. East Village
B2. Condominium

Foom presents the new Peter Gordon & Love of Life Orchestra EP, Condo.
“Condo” (the title song) is a little-known gem from Peter Gordon’s catalog,
pairing David Van Tieghem’s motorik drum programming and found
percussion with the transparent and vibrato-free vocals of Rebecca
Armstrong (Armstrong was also a member of Steve Reich’s ensemble, and
contributed vocals to the definitive ECM recordings of Steve Reich’s Music
For 18 Musicians, and Tehillim). Prior to them working together, Nik Colk
Void (of Factory Floor) wrote to Gordon that: “(Condo) completely catches
my personality and when I feel disillusioned or need comfort, I always put it
on, and it makes me feel good and strong.” Their correspondence
culminated in the Peter Gordon & Factory
Floor collaboration, Beachcombing.
The EP is comprised of a remastered version of the title track, “Condo”
(which originally appeared on 1981’s Casino EP), along with 3 previously
unreleased tracks from the same 1981 sessions. “Neighbors” uses “Condo”
as its foundation, with Peter Gordon’s solo on top, “Candy Store” sees the
full band iteration of the Love of Life Of Orchestra, including Rebecca
Armstrong on vocals, Fred Maher on guitar and Bill Laswell on bass, “East
Village” relies only on synthesizers and electronic percussion, with a chorale
layered upon a deep groove. The EP closer, “Condominium,” is a nod to
those DJs who would play the title track at a slower tempo. The EP’s titles
are a comment on the gentrification of NYC’s East Village, which began in
the early 1980’s and continues to this day, driving out low-income residents,
including artists, writers and musicians, such as Gordon, Van Tieghem and
Armstrong.
[Background: In 1981, Peter Gordon joined up with video artists Kit
Fitzgerald and John Sanborn to form Antarctica, a label devoted to releasing
new video music work. The Bologna-based Expanded Records label
released the CASINO EP (on which Condo originally appeared) with the
Antarctica imprimatur, in 1982. Gordon and Van Tieghem returned to
Aquarius Studios in Geneva in (where they had recorded Peter Gordon &
Love Of Life Orchestra’s Genevaalbum the year before). Some of the tracks
from the Geneva II sessions appear on the Antarctica videos, NEW MUSIC
FROM ANTARCTICA LP and CASINO. The Antarctica label was unable to
sustain itself, however, which left a few tracks from the Geneva II sessions
unreleased until now.] Available from 13.10.2017

The very name exudes style and intrigue-a country lord, perhaps, who at night throws open the manor gates to host all-night bacchanals legendary for their wine and song. And though the French-born, Geneva-based artist may not have a manor to his name, the rest isn’t far off the mark. Born Renaud Lewandowski, Lee has earned […]

collaborative extended play project from the late Sean Price and
Melbourne’s go to producer, M-Phazes. The project finds the longtime

swinging horns and hard drums.

with the addition of the Small Professor Remix for ”Murdah Type Thinkin
(feat. Guilty Simpson).” For this special edition rerelease, Coalmine has
also added the Divided Souls Ent. & DJ Pain 1 Remix of “Land of the
Crooks,” which was only previously made available on the label’s remix
compilation, ‘Remineded,’ which first dropped back in January of 2015.
The B-side includes the instrumental passes of all of the original tracks,
as well as the Small Pro Remix, in addition to the “Crookapella,” which
includes various scratch stems taken from the EP, in addition to various
isolated drum sounds, sound effects, and acapella of the “Land of the
Crooks” single.

M.O.P.), Maffew Ragazino, Loudmouf Choir and the Dilated Junky, DJ
Babu.

movie, ‘Crocodile Dundee.’

RIN – EROS
Friday, May 12th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on RIN – EROS

Image: 1610007 Millionenfach gestreamte Songs, verwackelte Aufnahmen von seinen schweißtreibenden Auftritten bei den großen Festivals in diesem Sommer, eine Zusammenarbeit mit Shindy, Magazincover und Vorschusslorbeeren noch und nöcher – keine Frage: RIN hat gerade das, was man guten Gewissens einen waschechten Hype nennen kann. Am 1. September 2017 veröffentlicht er nun sein Debütalbum “Eros”.

Aber der Reihe nach: Geboren wird RIN in Bietigheim-Bissingen, einem beschaulichen Städtchen in der Nähe von Stuttgart. In seiner Kindheit läuft zuhause jugoslawische Folklore, denn seine Eltern sind aus Bosnien und Herzegowina nach Deutschland gekommen. Wenn RIN mit seinen Freunden im Park hängt, hören sie Gangsterrap von 50 Cent. Erst wird nur dann und wann gefreestyled, dann nimmt RIN seine ersten Songs auf. Im Sommer 2015 veröffentlicht er in Eigenregie die Split-Single “Ljubav/Beichtstuhl”. Ein Jahr später folgt die Debüt-EP “Genesis”, auf der RIN Sinnsuche und Sehnsucht mit Selbstbewusstsein und Stilsicherheit verbindet und sich sich so endgültig über die Grenzen und Klischees einer Szene hinwegsetzt, der er sich ohnehin nicht zugehörig fühlt.

Jetzt erscheint mit “Eros” das Debütalbum von RIN. Hoffnungslos naiv, dann wieder tieftraurig erzählt er auf den 15 Tracks voller Melancholie aus seinem Leben. Von nächtlichen Shoppingexzessen im Netz, vom Kaputtgehen und Kopfschmerzen und auch vom schönsten aller Gefühle, der Liebe, ohne sich dabei unnötig zu verkünsteln oder gar in den Kitsch abzudriften. RINs Stil lässt sich nicht in eine Schublade stecken: Er liefert modernen Hip Hop mit genialen Melodien, technisch ausgefeilten Produktionen und einem Hauch von Autotune. Ihn dabei nur als Rapper zu bezeichnen, wäre eine Untertreibung. RIN ist ein Künstler. Ja, er rappt. Und jetzt? Ja, er singt. Auch gut. Ist doch egal. Dabei ist seine Musik der absolute Gegenentwurf zu künstlich aufgeblasenen Deutschrap-Hypes und kontert diese mit intuitiven Lines und einer Leichtigkeit, welche die Szene in den letzten Jahren schmerzhaft vermissen ließ. Und wenn RIN eben den ganzen Tag Ego-Shooter zockt, dabei asiatisches Fast Food schnabuliert und den ganzen Tag Streetwear in seinen Online-Warenkorb packt, dann macht er mit “Doverstreet” einen Song darüber. Genau so macht er in “Bros” mit seinen Jungs die Stadt unsicher und liefert mit den urban-karibischen Vibes von “Monica Bellucci” einen perfekten Sommerhit.

Erscheinen wird “Eros” über das Label DIVISION, welches Elvir Omerbegovic gemeinsam mit Markus und Michael Weicker, Regisseure bei The Factory, gegründet hat. Als Geschäftsführer von Selfmade Records konnte Elvir Omerbegovic in den letzten zehn Jahren bereits große Erfolge feiern.
