Max Graef – Rivers Of The Red Planet
Thursday, April 24th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Max Graef – Rivers Of The Red Planet

Image: 1587379 Tartelet have a knack for uncovering virtuosic, off-kilter electronic music. Max Graef’s debut album is no exception. Double vinyl only, this will surely sell out.

Tartelet has a knack for uncovering virtuosic, off-kilter electronic music. Max Graef—born, bred and still holding it down in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg—is their latest artist in this mold. Though adventurous dance music is thick on the ground in the German capital, Graef’s 2013 run of singles, cropping up on Graef’s own Box aus Holz, plus Melbourne
Deepcast, The Gym, Heist and Tartelet, continually surprised, infusing worn-in house with manic energy and acrobatic elasticity. Where many of his peers make languid, self-consciously laid-back tunes, Graef makes brilliantly restless ones. Dropping the needle on one of his EPs, you nearly expect it to pop right off again.
Rivers of the Red Planet, Graef’s first full-length and Tartelet’s latest album project, takes all that wildness and refines, expands, updates and scrambles it. It’s as ambitious and deviously entertaining a record as you’ll hear in 2014, the fulfillment of Graef’s desire to make anything but another contemporary house music album. At any given moment,
Rivers of the Red Planet feels like it could have been recorded through the smoke at a jazz club in the booth at a techno club 30 years from now or inside an MPC stocked with crusty dollar-bin samples. (We’d guess the staff at Graef’s beloved OYE Records in Berlin will have a difficult time settling on which section to file it in.) If it sounds sampled, it’s a testament to Graef’s natural musicianship and production prowess —the record is heavy on sounds he played himself, from drums and Rhodes to fat synth melodies wrung out of an old Crumar Performer water-damaged to perfection. For vocals, Graef enlisted Nigerian singer Wayne Snow, whose rugged soulfulness makes him a natural pairing.
On cuts like “Drums Of Death” and “Speed Metal Jesus,” the clubreadiness of his EPs lives on. But Rivers of the Red Planet may be most at home in your living room, with a good bottle of red and a roaring fire’s crackles mixing with the pops and hiss of the vinyl—a playful listen that sinks in, burrowing deep and getting you all warm and gooey on the

Miles Bonny – Hello Jesus / High Enough
Tuesday, February 7th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Miles Bonny – Hello Jesus / High Enough

Image: 1608619 Plane Jane is back with another proper 2-sider. This time by way of Miles Bonny, we
heard Hello Jesus a few years back on an EP Miles had put out and Lepse has been
playing it to dancefloors ever since. The tune gets such a heavy response we wanted
to get it on a 7, so here it is.
Side A is Bonny’s version of a song that isn’t called Hello Jesus, with production by
Canadian duo Circle Research. The bass and drums alone catch you from the first
beat, add the gritty synth lines and Miles’ smooth but rough vocals and we have a hit.
Sure to set the dance on fire for all the DJs that play this kind of thing.
Side B find Bonny’s version of a song that is not called High Enough, again with the
strong production lead by punchy drums and a very recognizable bassline. Another
Plane Jane classic sure to be getting heavy play across the world. Available from 24.02.2017

Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – Jungle Fever / Tender Trap
Monday, June 6th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – Jungle Fever / Tender Trap

Image: 1604480 Big Crown Records is proud to present Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band’s Jungle Fever / Tender Trap 7″ single.

With their debut album “55” taking the vinyl world by storm, we wanted to give fans another 7 they couldn’t leave home without. Their cover of The Chakacha’s classic, “Jungle Fever” has been burning up dancefloors since it’s first pressing on Plane Jane Records. BRSB puts the punch in the drums and the one drop in the arrangements, taking the original tune and updating it into something DJs and their audiences are going crazy for. “Tender Trap”, the flip side, starts out with a syncopated intro that will catch the ear of any hip hop fan for a number of reasons, then the tune turns into an all out funk burner, steel pans and guitars taking turns over the driving drums. Another BRSB sureshot. Available from 17.06.2016

Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – 55
Tuesday, February 9th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – 55

Image: 1602209 Shrouded in mystery, hailing from Hamburg, Germany, Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band (BRSB) releases their long awaited debut “55” on
Brooklyn’s own Big Crown Records. Long time multi instrumentalist and band leader Bjorn Wagner spent a few months in Trindad & Tobago
where he became fascinated with Steel Drums. His initial intrigue with local steel pan music culture led him to learning the instrument both
through help of local players and on his own. After he became proficient on the pans Bjorn had his own instrument built from a used oil
barrel by legendary pan man Louis C. Smith. Upon returning home to Germany, Bjorn set out to blend the Tropical Steel into his already
sharply honed Funk, Soul, and Hip Hop sensibilities. The outcome is an updated take on a classic format, a truly unique sound. Their first
two recordings were covers of The Meters “Look A-Py-Py” & “Ease Back” which they self released on a 45. Looking back on these two sides
you can tell they were just getting their chops up for what was to come next. This is evidenced by how all hell broke loose when they went
on to cover 50 Cent’s hit PIMP taking the DJ and vinyl collecting communities by storm. Many people thought the recording was the original
sample and probably still do to this day when it is played. The original Mocambo pressing sold out quickly and is now a collector’s item
fetching heavy prices when it changes hands. It was this tune that made the introduction between Bjorn and Danny Akalepse of Big Crown.
They immediately hit it off and starting making plans to do a full length project with the band.
Keeping in the tradition of Steel Drum records, 55 is a journey through re-interpolations and covers with an updated approach, pushing Steel
Pan music to uncharted territory. Flawlessly bringing previously untouched genres into the steel pan cannon ranging from Underground Hip
Hop tunes to staple Funk tracks and some of all that falls in between. From the smoothed out Reggae cover of John Holt’s “Police In Helicopter”
to the DJ sure shot cover of Faith Evan’s “Love Like This” BRSB’s 55 is reinvigorating tunes both well known and helping to shed some
light on tunes still largely undiscovered. However, some of the strongest tunes on the album are original compositions, from spaced out
Disco vibes on “Beetham Highway Ride” and “Port Of Spain Hustle” to the ugly face inspiring drums of “Laventille Road March”. Recorded
to analog 8 track tape at The Mocambo Studios in Hamburg, 55 is a gritty, punchy journey in sound drawing on music from around the world,
using production aesthetics from across both eras and genres, all coming together seamlessly. If the 45s that have already come out on
Mocambo, Plane Jane, and Truth & Soul are an indication, this full length is going to be a staple to both casual listeneners and Disc Jockeys
alike. Catch BRSB live in Fall as they tour the world with the mysterious heavy sound that is in fact, all their own.

Erimaj – Conflict Of A Man / Nothing Like This
Thursday, May 16th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Erimaj – Conflict Of A Man / Nothing Like This

Image: 1580864 As the premiere release from Plane Jane, we are very proud to present this exceptional single from Erimaj, “Conflict Of A Man” b/w “Nothing Like This” – only 500 copies pressed.
From the abstract mind of world-renowned drummer Jamire Williams, ERIMAJ is a progressive new band stirring up the scene.
Their first break onto the stage was in 2010 with their underground EP release Memo To All. This was a project that not only displayed Williams as a leader, but demonstrated his production abilities as well. Known for his work as drummer for artists like Dr. Lonnie Smith, Christian Scott and Robert Glasper, Williams has also performed and recorded with the likes of John Mayer and Cubic Zirconia. With a background immersed
in diversity he has set out to make ERIMAJ a genuine blend of all these experiences.
Side A features the title track from the album Conflict Of A Man. Driving drums and key stabs mixed with cinematic strings and Chris Turner’s soulful vocals come together on this sureshot underground classic.
Side B is a cover of J Dilla’s “Nothing Like This” from his cult classic Ruff Draft album. Guaranteed to have people approaching the booth asking what this version is. This is a must-have for Dilla fans.

Various – Paz E Futebol 2
Friday, July 22nd, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Paz E Futebol 2

Image: 1603842 Sonar Kollektiv present the second volume of Paz E Futebol 2.

Ten years have passed since the phenomenal success of the „Paz e Futebol“ (SK089CD / LP)
compilation, released on Sonar Kollektiv. Since then Germany went on to win the Football
World Cup in Brazil sparking an increased self-confidence and maybe inspiring the Berlin
musical institution Jazzanova to compile again a courageously eclectic showcase of Brazilian
music in all its facets and peculiarities.
“Paz e Futebol 2” is the ultimate smorgasbord of all Brazilian music, irrespective of era and
location, sporting the true and heartfelt Brazilian vibe. Similar to the football Brazil is known
for, where “Brazilian style of playing” means an extra technically ability and finesse, but also
an unmatched approach and skill within the sport. This affinity with skill is shown with this
expertly curated 19-track-strong compilation.
„Asking Eyes“ by RAFFAELA RENZULLI off her first and only album „Children Of The Light“
from 1987 kicks off extremely laid-back before driving the listeners round the bend just like
the ball skills by illustrious soccer star Neymar. This zest for life, this excessive friskiness is
the recurrent theme which is constantly present across all eras, continents and genres
covered on “Paz e Futebol 2”.For instance, “Dunks” by the meanwhile defunct Brighton based
project HARDKANDY. According to composer Tim Bidwell, this a track, when released on the
connoisseur label Wah Wah 45s in 2008, which wasn’t intended to hold a Brazilian reference
but was directed more towards afrobeat influences only now fits perfectly into the new
context and narrative of the compilation.
Also “Palmeiras” by the Argentinian combo CANDEIAS is taylor made for this voyage of
exploration all around the world in search of the Brazilian vibration. The extremely rare
album “Sambaiana” from 1976, which features next to “Palmeiras” another six gems of
Brazilian vitality, will incidentally be re-released on NOTES ON A JOURNEY. Also finding a
wider public than its initial release is the long forgotten 1983 LP “Num Dia Azul” by the couple

One of the songs off it, “Samba Walk”, was already a part of the first “Paz e Futebol”
compilation. Now another track off this extraordinary soulful record, “Calma Mulher”, is
included on Volume 2. Orlando Haddad, currently residing in Philadelphia, recalls how he
wrote the song for his wife in the early 70’s at Ipanema Beach: „It’s about a man saying to his
woman to calm down, as life is about much more than material possessions. It’s about love.“
Then New Zealander NATHAN HAINES steps up for the release with one of his 2003
recordings together with the two singers Marcus Begg and Vanessa Freeman: “U See That”, a
track oozing positive energy with its infectious message and beautiful arrangement. Another
song entailing exactly everything that also fascinated us so much with what Zico, Sokrates,
Eder, Falcao, Serginho etc. did on the pitch.
Talking about legends and veterans, ARY LOBO was one of the most successful singers and
composers of the 40’s and 50’s in Brazil’s northeast. It’s here where the lesser-known style
“Forró” is coming from and unifies a multitude of regionally rooted rhythms like Baião, Côco,
Rojão, Xaxado, Xote and Arrasta-Pé. Lobo, as one of the most popular solicitors of Forró, and
known for his superb phrasing and his folky feel, appears on “Paz e Futebol 2” with one of his
rare 7inch singles: The dancey “Nêgo São” from 1966.
Probably even more rare is the 7inch single by PENHA MARIA „Você Balanca O Meu Coracão
(Ou Sol Demais)“, released in 1968 on the Mocambo Rozenblit label from Recife. „É Só Balanco“
by JACKSON DO PANDEIRO & ALMIRA has a similar vibe to it. The song is off the scarce LP
“Coisas Nossas” from 1965, the short-spanned samba period of the bandleader normally also
closely connected to the Forró style. The rarity of the record is due to the fact that the record
company Philips thought these specific recordings were too experimental for Pandeiro and
simply pressed a lot less copies. Making this a true diggers anthem.
The compilation then switches things up with the illustrious KATE CEBERANO, the Diana
Krall of her mother country Australia. The title track off her fourth, 1990 released album “Like
Now” is a beautiful Brazil tribute being a rare occurrence for an Australian release, especially
at that time.
Next up is one of Gilles Peterson’s favourites, ED MOTTA. Born in 1971 in Rio De Janeiro, Motta
is the nephew of legendary Tim Maia and has recorded sixteen amazing LPs up to date and
continues to release music on a regular basis. 1997’s „Daqui Pro Méier“ is one hell of a dance
floor belter which he arranged together with Lincoln Olivetti. The latter has the distinction of
being one of Brazil’s true pioneers of electronic music and was one of the country’s most
sought-after songwriters and producers in the 70s and 80s.
A more recent Brazilian release, from 2012, is up next: „Dia de Furar Onda no Mar“ by LUCAS
SANTTANA is mesmerizing MPB (Música Popular Brasileira) and valid proof of a prosperous
future for the Brazilian legacy heralded on this compilation. With FAFA DE BELEM we take
another trip back into yesteryear. The larger-than-life singer and actress (and former sex
symbol) is still one of MPB’s most successful artists and delivers in her husky mezzosoprano a veritable showpiece of Brazilian serenity on the 1975 released Polydor single
„Céu Da Manágua“ by PIRY REIS is full of temper and hot-bloodedness. The song written in
1984 together with Geraldinho Carneiro originates from a time when the Brazilian people was
revolting against the oppressive (but soon ceasing) military dictatorship – attempting to fight
politics with music.

Finally you’ll get a samba take from the 1960 founded and still existing
combo OS ORIGINAIS DO SAMBA: „Canto Chorado“ from 1969 is a heartwarming tune
reminiscent of the pure elegance and finesse of Pelé.
It’s not always easy to find such extraordinaire songs with so much vocation and diversity.
„Tema Do Azambuja“ by AZAMBUJA & CIA with its perfect and dense arrangement and the
sombre synth chords is a perfect example of these unusual songs – a song that possesses the
beauty of the Brazilian sound and something worth presenting to the listeners all over planet
And to celebrate all these astonishing findings on this compilation we have two exclusive
songs contributed on top. Marc Friedli from Switzerland aka SKYMARK has absorbed the
Brazilian spirit in such a manner that by now he has moved his domicile to Rio De Janeiro
and here he records such beautiful songs like „Boa Noite Meu Filho (Mental)“ – singlehandedly playing all the instruments himself. In marked contrast to the second exclusive
song on this compilation, „Gafiera (Instrumental Trio Version)“. The original version can be
found on the Jazzanova album „Of All The Things“ which features the three musicians of the
Brazilian jazz funk band Azymuth. Alex Malheiros, Ivan Conti and José Roberto Bertram cut
the track during the unforgettable recording sessions in Berlin several times on their own
and one of these recordings sees the light of day for the very first time right here right now.
This way the second edition of “Paz e Futebol” finds a fair and beautiful ending. We hope the
passes, the crosses and the precise assists by Jazzanova have been received well by you the
listeners and you have gained even more taste for this style of music, which is always so
pleasant, delicate and ever so sleek but has always a positive effect on your soul and mind.

Trus’me – Treat Me Right – The Remixes
Saturday, September 6th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Trus’me – Treat Me Right – The Remixes

Image: 1592403 Limited to 300 copies only !

‘Treat Me Right’, the third album from Trus’me, featured plenty of modern club anthems and was lauded by a gamut of the most respected DJs around, including Ben Klock, Guy Gerber, Tini and Maya Jane Coles. Reflecting the Trus’me musical palette and chosen by him for this very reason, Prime Numbers has now put together an undoubtedly excellent collection of seven remixes by a stellar cast of friends and collaborators.

From the U.S with Luke Hess & Truncate to Sweden with Skudge via the U.K with Truss & Alan Fitzpatrick, France with Marcelus and Germany with Roman Flugel, together these remixers make up an impressive team from the forefront of Techno and House including both bonafide veterans and the vibrant new school talents alike.
With remixes on Prime Numbers, the label always ask the producers to wholly reinterpret the tracks and that’s what has happened here to devastating effect, with each artist bringing their distinctive style to the table and providing radically fresh tracks rather than just basic revamps.

In inimitable style, Skudge mould ‘Moonlight Kiss’ into a deep analogue roller. They maintain the chopped vocal hook and the dreamlike feel of the original but drive the tempo with crackling snares and thunderous kicks. Marcelus brings the pain to ‘Hindsight’ stripping the piece right back to the bare essentials. His rework fizzes and pops itself into the darkness whilst the bass and keys ride out a mesmeric and hypnotic groove.

Both Alan Fitzpatrick & Luke Hess put their touch to ‘I Want You’.
The Deeplab Detroit master Luke Hess turns out in much the same vein as his releases on FXHE and Planet E working the original into a subtler, more spacious groove. Whilst Fitzpatrick pumps the track with iron & steroids rocking some seriously insistent action for the wide-eyed, this is most certainly one for the top of the night and has all the right anthemic ingredients.

Truss toughens up ‘Defunct’, simplifying the track and giving it more friction for the dance floor. ‘It’s Slow’ gets treated twice to Truncate’s vision. Mix 1 is all minimal pumping Dance Mania type moves whilst Mix 2 is a nod to Todd Terry dubs with percolated bass and frayed keys.
Roman Flugel heightens the tension of the now classic ‘Somebody’ building the groove expertly with delay and a perfect flow very much in the style of his fantastic Jack For Daze release last year.

This limited triple vinyl release comes in a bespoke wide spine sleeve and includes a bonus CD featuring a selection of the remixes plus a few handpicked tracks from recent Prime Numbers vinyl releases including Fred P, Mosca, XDB & Adesse.
