Manana presents the third release on Manana//Records, an album collaboration between the UK’s Soundspecies and Ache Meyi, based in Santiago de Cuba. The project was born in April 2016 in Santiago, in the balmy weeks leading up to Manana Festival and is the culmination of two chaotic weeks of rehearsals at the Casa Del Danzon and two sessions at the legendary Egrem studios. ‘Ache Meyi’ can be translated into ‘Ache’ (‘power’ or ‘blessings’ in the Yoruba language) and ‘Meyi’ (‘double’ or ‘twin’ or ‘twice’) and the band have their very own power twins, Hector and Rafael. Hector is the senior, patriarchal fgurehead of the group alongside his apprentices Alieke and Rafael. Two female singers, Alina and Maire, complete the lineup. The band’s identity is rooted in an interlocking web of afro-Haitian rhythms like bembe, vodu, gaga and merengue, absorbing these folkloric traditions from the neighbourhoods that they grew up in. Soundspecies are brothers Henry and Olly Keen, a Producer/DJ duo from Dorset who explore the connections between the rhythms of traditional folkloric percussive music and the sounds and forms of electronic dance music. Integrating electronics and melodies initially proved hard: “We were struggling to respond to the frenetic, seemingly impenetrable web of rhythmic sounds, and the singers’ sense of tonality was quite free, jumping from one key to n unrelated one within songs,” recalls Olly. However, at the legendary Siboney Egrem Studios in Santiago, they began separating the instruments, breaking the music down into textures and patterns and trying new directions with the sound. At a later session, Ache Meyi then jammed with kick and snare sounds on the MPC, playing to bembe rhythms recorded during the frst session.
Olly continues, “With a virtuoso like Hector, who has dedicated his whole life to his art, it could have been a challenge for us to suggest respectfully that he does it differently but he was the most open-hearted, patient and positive man. The show at the Manana festival was a euphoric experience for us. We wanted the album to capture and distil some of the energy from that night.”

KEY POINTS:
– Groundbreaking fusion of Cuban folkloric music and electronics
– Third release on MANANA / Records following the groundbreaking MANANA / Festival in Santiago, Cuba in 2016
– DJ support from Gilles Peterson, NTS, Worldwide FM, Henrik Schwarz and many more
– Limited edition vinyl format – 500 copies only

Les Yper Sound presents an all-instrumental journey through the many worlds of drums and saxophones. In early 2016, New York session musicians Miles Arntzen and Jas Walton—who both currently play in Afrobeat ensemble Antibalas—began experimenting with their respective instruments in Miles’s Greenwich Village basement. They composed demos that were made up of Miles’s percussion, Jas’s woodwinds, and the sounds of everyday objects.

The style of recording and manipulating everyday ‘non-musical’ sounds was born in Paris during the 1940s and dubbed “musique concrète.” This revolutionary process seeped into pop music in the mid-‘60s, and now—due to ever-advancing music technology—it is a staple of mainstream music. Explorations of Drums & Sax is a hat tip to the novelty of recorded sounds back when they were still weird and way out.

As well as experimenting with the early laboratory process of musique concrète, Miles notes, “usually one of us was coming from something else, from a rehearsal with so-and-so right to my basement and just jumping right in. There was no time to think about what might be seeping in influence-wise, but it was always related to all the other things we were doing.” The duo began working together in 2009 when they started the band EMEFE in jazz school. Between each of their sidemen gigs with other artists, they steal time to get together and spin their own creations.

While touring with Luaka Bop’s William Onyeabor supergroup Atomic Bomb!, Jas met Beastie Boys’ synth master Money Mark and Sudanese-pop artist Sinkane (Ahmed Gallab). In March, the four of them convened in Brooklyn to record under the project name Les Yper Sound, titled after Pierre Henry’s 1967 musique concrète EP. This studio-oriented team of multi-instrumentalists—who are all producers in their own right—digested Miles and Jas’s original basement demos and began improvising new works during sessions at Shahzad Ismaily’s new Figure 8 studio in Prospect Heights.

The process-based sessions were engineered and mixed by tUnE-yArDs mastermind Eli Crews and produced by Lily Wen. During these spring workshop days, the group built new songs from found objects such as a coins, pickups, a coffee maker, and a tape head stylus.

The group picked up and played whatever was lying around, found a groove together, and sometimes recorded only one take. Other times they looped a small caught moment and layered other elements on top of it. The field recorder and vocoder from a previous band session were put to good use, and the group stayed inspired thanks to donuts and Shane’s restaurant around the corner.

On November 4, Figure & Ground releases its sophomore album Explorations of Drums & Sax comprised of 14 original tracks by Les Yper Sound. The album pulls from the group’s eclectic influences and showcases the drums and sax surrounded by an array of acoustic and electronic sounds all rooted in rhythm and pop melodies.

“It’s all about finding that starting point,” says Jas, “and everything blossoms from there.”

As Miles puts it, “we would just start with an improvisational sound, do that for three minutes, build a song around it, and then maybe at the end of the whole thing, you can’t even hear that first thing anymore but it’s a part of everything else that happened around it. When you play a rhythm on a cool-sounding prepared piano, you don’t know what genre you’re in. Maybe it will become a Brazilian jam or maybe it’ll become a soulful groove—and all that happened in the studio. You’re letting the sound of something dictate and inspire you.”

Money Mark, who studied with the early electronic instrument pioneers, revealed some of his ‘recording hacks’ and found the musical in non-traditional objects. Miles recalls: “We went out to lunch and Money Mark was missing somewhere, and he comes back with two TV speakers and says: ‘We could just plug these into an amp and hit them with your fingers—one’s a little broken but maybe it could be the snare,’ and that’s is exactly what happened. We come back from lunch, plug them into a bass amp, and sure enough it’s perfect.” Listen & find out more here. Available from 04.11.2016

Arthur Russell – The Sleeping Bag Sessions
Thursday, January 7th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Arthur Russell – The Sleeping Bag Sessions

Image: 1544329 Back In Stock ! Whether it’s Hip Hop, it’s face pointed reverentially to the Old School, or House stealing Disco riffs by the truck load, people are increasingly intrigued by back-in-the-day. And common to both the aforementioned scenes and much more is one person, Arthur Russell, a man some regard as the best songwriter of the 20th century. In 1981 Arthur set up Sleeping Bag Records with Will Socolov. The first release was the album “24-24 Music” as Dinosaur L. If you’re wondering about the name it would appear Arthur would often use the names of extinct or near-extinct animals. On one production credit he’s “Killer Whale, whilst the logo for Sleeping Bag is a Koala bear! Will remembers how they came up with the name for their label. “We were joking about names, and James Brown was on with “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag” and I was sleeping in a sleeping bag in my apartment and I kind of made a joke about that, and Arthur said that was a great idea for the name of the company!” The line up was pretty much the same as the Loose Joints sessions, (which boasted the Ingram Brothers rhythm section) and a similar stream-of-conscience approach was taken with the recording itself. Russell arranged the beats so there’d be a change every 24 bars (hence the title) and the band would have to
improvise the songs over the top. He also made sure he went into the studio when there was a full moon! The album is again very experimental, and makes occasional uneasy listening but the same magic is very much in evidence. Arthur would continue to be involved in production and mixing duties for the label, but parted company with Socolov in 1985. Arthur sadly died of AIDS in 1992 leaving behind many songs, as one obituary
put it, it was though he simply vanished into his music.

Friday, December 19th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Nonplace Soundtracks / Scenes 01-25

Image: 1594069 Nonplace präsentiert auf dieser CD die erste Folge instrumentaler Soundtracks, 25 Szenen, die sich für die Verwendung als Soundtracks besonders eignen, oder in ähnlicher Form bereits in Film und TV eingesetzt wurden. Alle Titel sind von Burnt Friedman und/oder Hayden Chisholm innerhalb der letzten ca. 10 Jahre produziert worden, und zwar zum Teil mit Chisholms Formation The Embassadors, oder innerhalb Friedmans zahlreicher Filmsound-Sessions, u.a. mit Joseph Suchy an der elektrischen Gitarre. Innerhalb dieses nahtlosen, kontinuierlichen Mixes von 25 kurzen “Szenen” von 1 bis 2 Minuten Länge findet sich eine Fülle unerwarteter musikalischer Facetten, z.B. krumme Dub-Beats, Kammerorchester-Arrangements, oder subtil-dynamische, elektro-akustische Klanggebilde, die insgesamt das Material für bizarre Soundtracks bilden, oder schlicht ein Hörkino erzeugen.

Pressestimmen:
“… testen very sophisticated die Überschneidungen von Electronica, Jazz, Dub, Reggae und Downbeat aus. Acts wie Flangr, Root70, Friedman haben sorgfältig und in aller Ruhe eine schlaue Variante von Weltmusik geschaffen und an der Umdeutung dieses einst negativen Begriffs gearbeitet.” – De:Bug
“One simply must find a tool fathom for one’s self this unique dimension and not to fail by missing the fluctuation and limitless elegance of this album. Whoever carries the robots to bed, will have to find his own way in the galaxy. This is music not from our world.” – Tonight
“How can clear and transparent music which pulses so softly and organically at the same time create such a dense and gripping atmosphere? Because every detail is correct, the pieces are worked with such precision, and the sound layers matched together so finely. What seems to be played so lightly and comes across almost dance-like develops an irresistible power of attraction.” – Stadt Revue Köln

The Green Man (TGM) & Peter Bouncer – Word, Sound, Power
Thursday, July 11th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Green Man (TGM) & Peter Bouncer – Word, Sound, Power

Image: 1581595 Zwei Sommer Hit-Tracks mit Reggae-Vibes vom kommenden Album “The Green Man (TGM)- Sound Power”, das stilistisch eine grosse musikalische Bandbreite abdeckt. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf D&B, doch von 87 über 140 bis 175 BPM ist alles dabei. Soulige Vocaltracks wechseln sich mit Soundscapes, trockenem Minimalismus, synthetischer Bassmusik und emotionalen Tunes ab.

“Word Sound Power” mit Peter Bouncer, Sänger von Shut Up & Dance & Peter Bouncer – “Ravin I’m Ravin”, einst #2 in den UK Charts sowie “Junglist” auf Congo Natty, erscheint vorab als Basswerk 38 Vinyl. Die schöne, soulige Stimme von Peter Bouncer wurde im Studio von DJ Freeze speziell für diesen Track aufgenommen. Sie landet diesmal nur vereinzelt auf Oldschool-Beats und stattdessen auf modernen, treibenden Grooves mit sphärischen, dubbigen Sounds im Green Man Style. Ein deeper Sommer-Track mit Gänsehautfeeling.

“Face the Father” mit Demolition Man – der Sänger der Jungle Hymne “Fire” (Urban Shakedown/Prizna/Labello Bianco).

Saint Petersburg Disco Spin Club – Galemaya Live Sessions Vol.1
Thursday, July 4th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Saint Petersburg Disco Spin Club – Galemaya Live Sessions Vol.1

Image: 1580512 IS IT BALEARIC return with an absolutely superb EP from new signings Saint Petersburg Disco Spin Club.

SPDSC are a collective of live musicians and DJ’s from Russia. This is their debut release for IIB, but a handful of tracks on labels like Glenview & Teardrop have made serious waves – skillfully combining live Disco musicianship with the DJ sensibilities which shape their sound. From club friendly and hooky dancefloor tracks to blissfully executed downtempo jams
All pulled off with a loose but pin sharp production style that really makes them stand out.

‘I Never Leave You’ leads on the A Side, a steadily assembled sunset workout, with brass elements defining the groove.

‘Marwencol’ manages to deftly pull off a Balearic Wu-Tang move, whil e’Love Spin’ is a beautifully lolloping beach bar jam, which comes complete with a very dubbed-out dub version too

Top drawer music from an ever dependable label. Available from 14.06.2013

If punk rock kicked in the front doors of the mid 1970s music scene, then Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry must have seeped in through its walls and floors. By the time Perry established himself at the Black Ark there was probably no one quite like him working in popular music. Anarchic, spiritual but with a healthily […]

Danny Watts – Black Boy Meets World
Wednesday, January 17th, 2018 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Danny Watts – Black Boy Meets World

Image: 1617466 This fall, Danny Watts will release his debut album Black Boy Meets World
on Jonwayne’s imprint Authors Recording Company. Beats were supplied
in full by Jonwayne, creating the environments that mesh to Danny Watts’
introspective lyricism and soulful cadences on the mic. The Houston based
rapper has created a body of work that details his life experiences with an
honest and uncompromising lens, jumping out of the Authors Recording
Company gates as the first release after the critically acclaimed Rap Album
Two. Before the release of Black Boy Meets World, Danny Watts is offering
up the album’s lead single “Young & Reckless” feat. Aye Mitch! today.
Danny Watts and Jonwayne recently captured Black Boy Meets World
in the span of only a week, recording the 11-track LP at the Los Angeles
recording facility Cosmic Zoo. Danny also wrote all of the lyrics to the album
in this same window, finishing up to three songs per day as the Cosmic
Zoo sessions occurred in an intense yet efficient form. Mixing and mastering
was completed by Low End Theory’s Daddy Kev and artwork was supplied
by Authors’ creative director Shane Sakanoi. With executive oversight and
production on every track supplied by Jonwayne, guest contributions and
features include Ray Wright of Warm Brew, DIBIA$E, Leaving Records’
Kiefer, Dr. Octagon collaborator Juan Alderete de la Pena, Zeroh, and many
others. The overall effect presents the ethos of hip-hop’s many forms, pulled
into the weight of classic sounding kicks, snares, hi-hats, basslines, keys,
synths, and horns.
The process that brought Danny Watts to this stage of his music career
defines his maturation process as a man and the roads that have split out
from this path. “This whole album is me telling my story from my perspective,”
explains Danny Watts. “Everyone goes through their own unique experiences
in life that forces them to really understand how the world operates. You either
allow yourself to succumb to the pressures of life or just find the strength to
make the best of your environment. Writing this album helped me realize
how some lessons in life are inescapable. I spent my whole life telling myself
that I would never end up like certain people. Thinking that I was better than
a lot of people because a part of me felt and thought differently from most of
my peers. Then I ended up finding myself in those same situations that I just
knew for sure that I wouldn’t end up in.”

Emilie Nana – I Rise EP (Danny Krivit Edits)
Friday, January 12th, 2018 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Emilie Nana – I Rise EP (Danny Krivit Edits)

Image: 1617200 Music with a Message! Gut ein Jahr nach Veröffentlichung ihres brillianten Debütalbums THE MEETING LEGACY kehrt Emilie Nana mit einer atemberaubenden neuen EP auf Compost Records zurück. „I RISE“ ist eine Empowerment-Hymne im besten Sinne – uplifting, überwältigend und über einem hypnotisch deepen Groove schwebend zieht uns Emilie Nana mit ihren Vocals in den Bann. Diesem Bann konnte auch New Yorks legendäres Nightlife Mastermind Danny Krivit nicht wiederstehen und steuert für die Platte zwei Edits bei, die seine unverwechselbare Handsschrift tragen.

Ein Jahr nach dem brillianten Debütalbum THE MEETING LEGACY kehrt Emilie Nana mit einer atemberaubenden, neuen Single zurück. Auf ganz eigene Weise trägt sie das Gedicht “Still I Rise” von der amerikanischen Dichterin, Autorin und Bürgerrechtlerin Maya Angelou vor.

Emilie Nana zieht einen in den Bann. Ihre schwebende Stimme, beinahe geflüstert, ist überwältigend. Wie eine hohe Priesterin verzaubert sie, während die Musik im Hintergrund deep und hypnotisch bleibt. “I Rise ist eine Denunzierung”, behauptet sie selbst. Es geht nicht nur um Meditation, sondern
auch Deklamation. Klar und deutlich adressiert sie den Unterdrücker, spricht mit großer Gewissheit und antwortet auf Jahrzehnte der Misshandlung. Sie ist eine schwarze Frau, die sich stolz ausdrückt und damit sehr persönliche Musik schafft.

Ein Gefühl, das auch vom wegweisenden New Yorker DJ und Produzenten Danny Krivit geteilt wird: “Emilie Nana hat viel zu sagen mit ihrer Musik, und ihren Texten. Ihre neueste Single, “I Rise” ist ein perfektes Beispiel dafür.” Die Möglichkeit, mit einer Persönlichkeit zusammenzuarbeiten, die Zeit ihres Lebens alle ethnischen Ursprünge vereint hat, einer echten Legende, deren Edits Klassiker sind, dessen Rolle als Mastermind im New Yorker Nightlife unantastbar ist und der seit mehr als 45 Jahren an der Spitze der internationalen Tanzmusikszene steht, ist wie ein Geschenk für Emilie Nana. Krivits magic touch ist auf “Danny Krivit Vocal Dub Edit” und “Beatapella” zu hören.

Early Support and Quotes on “I Rise”:

Laurent Garnier:
“EXCELLENT – this is a pure beauty….Loooove it”

Ron Trent:
“Good to hear from you. Nice release…
Please send this to me would love to rock it. Looking forward”

Kalabrese:
“Beautiful. Like it. Very levitating and kicking…. will try the Danny Krivit Edit tonight”

King Britt:
“Hell yes! Thank you. Give her my best”

Michel Cleis:
“I love the song. Original is beautiful. Floatings / Ambiances are great and Emilie s voice is really nice. Danny’s edits are great. Will play all this for sure. Thank you very much.“

Quotes on “The Meeting Legacy” – Album 2016:
“Great new artists… today… eh… not so easy to come by… people who not only have great music, but also add something to it with their presence… people your actually driven to follow… because you know more great things are coming… Emilie Nana seems very passionate about her music & very much about what’s right & wrong in the world… a face and a mind to the music… and a lot of heart too… someone I can’t wait to hear what’s next from… underground… poignant… cutting edge… I’m a follower 🙂 Favorite track: Inward Path.“ DANNY KRIVIT (718 Sessions / Body & Soul NYC) via Bandcamp
“An impressive, promising debut album.” GROOVE Mag
“Fresh, blistely, very creative and extremely exciting” FAZE (longplayer of the month)
“Smoothly sounding groover” INTRO
“A brilliant collection of electronica music that isn’t afraid to bend the genres… a new-guard of future music is here.” Renight.com

Gogo Penguin – v2.0 (Special Edition)
Friday, January 5th, 2018 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Gogo Penguin – v2.0 (Special Edition)

Image: 1616996 GoGo Penguin’s Album “V2.0” aus dem Jahr 2014 und der anschliessenden Auszeichnung mit dem ‘Barclaycard Mercury Prize – Album Of The Year’ erscheint nun als ‘Special Deluxe Edition’ mit zusätzlichen 3 Titeln aus den original Aufnahmesessions. Die treibenden, intelligent verschachtelten Breakbeats, gepaart mit eingängigen Melodien, basierend auf einer bandinternen Chemie, die fast schon an Telepathie grenzt – das sind die Gründe, weshalb der Name GoGo Penguin längst für einen vollkommen eigenen, unvergleichlichen Sound steht.

Reaktionen:
“Eingängige Riffs und dahinjagende Beats – damit bricht dieses Klaviertrio in die Zukunft auf.” – Jazzwise
“Obwohl das Fundament ganz klar der Jazz ist, bewegt sich diese Band im selben Spektrum, in dem man sonst Radiohead, Portishead oder Massive Attack antrifft.” – STV Entertainment
“Es liegt auf der Hand, weshalb die Club-DJs von Manchester voll auf diese Band abgehen.” – The Guardian
