'In The Fade' by Fatih Akin awarded at Golden Globes

'In The Fade' wins Best Foreign Language Film at the 2018 Golden Globes

'In The Fade' by Fatih Akin has just been awarded 'Best Motion Picture - Foreign Language' at the Golden Globes!

The film has also been selected as the country’s submission to the Foreign Language Oscar race this year.

 

We licensed Courtney Barnett's 'Anonymous Club' for the movie.

 

First love was the use of Courtney's 'Canned Tomatoes' in Fatih Akin's Tschick - now it's her 'Anonymous Club' he picked for Aus dem Nichts (In The Fade).

 

Congratulations to Courtney Barnett, original publisher Third Side Music and thanks to Bombero International and Pia Hoffmann Music Supervising!

out soon: 'Universe' by KUF

The band's 2nd album will be released January 26th on Stefan Goldmann's label macro Recordings.

 

Since Thomas A. Edison first recorded the human voice in 1877, the recording arts have changed music forever. Musicians have explored the endless possibilities of bouncing their input onto layers of tape, off the walls of an echo chamber or the circuitry of electronic helpers - technology that modulates, spatializes, shifts, divides or multiplies the work of human hands and mouths.


An era of sampling offered a cubistic analysis of the recorded past and DJs took dancers onto intricately fractured time travels. This is the historic foundation that KUF keep probing. Just like the sampler and the DJ before them, they found new ways to re-allocate where machine and man stand when making music together. Most importantly, they turn the resulting friction into sparkling bursts of energy.


‘Universe’ digs deeper into the android vocal chords. The album offers sweeping melodies, different beats and persistent bass. Immerse in the intimacy of the voices, probably recorded in trains, backstage areas and at late night private parties during Berlin Lichtenberg warehouse rehearsals.

Burnt Friedman released his 'Anthology (1980-2017)'

The 17-track set charts Friedman's artistic development over nearly four decades

 

during which time the Berlin-based artist has forged a rhythmically adventurous sound that weaves in elements of world music, dub, jazz and techno. (A press release also mentions the influence of his longtime collaborator, legendary Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit, who died in January.)

 

It includes previously vinyl-only material he released through labels like Marionette, Latency and Dekmantel, along with four unreleased tunes, and it's set to come out on his own label Nonplace Records.

Wolfgang Tillmans releases 35-minute exhibition soundwork

'Hamburg Süd / Nee IYaow eow eow' has been released Novemebr 17th alongside booklet of photographs

 

"You’re probably very familiar with the photographic work of German artist Wolfgang Tillmans. Earlier this year, the Tate Modern held a vast exhibition of the photographer’s work and in the year 2000, he was the first photographer and first non-British artist to receive the Turner Prize. You may not, however, be as familiar with his music or sound design displayed in a recently released record by the artist following his exhibition, There was 30 years between 1943 and 1973, 30 years from 1973 was the year 2003, at The Kunstverein in Hamburg.


The exhibition consisted of a 35-minute sound installation which took the exhibition’s inner-city context as its starting point. Operating in conjunction with several photographic and video works, the installation transformed the gallery space into a “single cinematic whole”.


Now that the exhibition is over, The Kunstverein has released the 35-minute sound work Hamburg Süd / Nee IYaow eow eow as a CD via Tillman's own label Fragile Records, accompanied by a booklet featuring exhibition views and short snippets of text all designed by Wolfgang.

YEK EP to be released November 3rd via Nonplace

 

Mohammad Reza Mortazavi und Burnt Friedman have channeled their sublime creative synergy into a new EP.

 

What Mortazavi and Friedman have in common is their shared expertise in uneven, cyclical rhythms - the foundation of their trance-like art music, which is both subtle and ecstatic.

 

Through repetition and improvisation in the studio they create 'numbers' - groove-based pieces played on a variety of drums (Mortazavi mainly plays the Tombak) mixed with electronics. Natural, i.e. given, motion patterns provide the musical backbone. This results in a precisely timed harmony between the electronic sounds and live grooves.


Thanks to the extreme acoustic range of the Tombak and his extravagant technique, Mortazavi merges perfectly with Burnt Friedman’s signature sound and repertoire, which seems to belong to no specific place or time.


Mohammad Reza Mortazavi and Burnt Friedman both live and work in Berlin and are preparing for a live tour in 2018.

out now: 'Propaganda' by Oliver Huntemann

The Hamburg-based producer just released his 5th artist album on his own Senso Sounds

Now with over 20 years of releases behind him, Oliver Huntemann finds himself on the cusp of yet a new era in his career.

 

'Propaganda' is the fifth proper artist album from the Hamburg-based DJ/producer, and like each of its predecessors, it shows a different side to one of the most consistently rewarding names in techno. Released on his own Senso Sounds label, the album exudes the level of assurance that perhaps only comes with being so active in curating and developing a label that has stood out from the masses since its inception in 2014.

 

Released October 13th on Senso Sounds
