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.

In 1998, Happy Family released an album from the record label Cuneiform Records in the United States. Since then, he has worked on a number of domestic productions for major artists as composer, arranger, and remixer.

Dugo released their first album 'Lingua Franca' via Brave Wave Productions in January 2017.



new Audiac-album coming up!

'So Waltz' to be released October 20th via Klangbad

They are back! 14 years after their highly recommended first record 'Thank You For Not Discussing The Outside World' Audiac's new album is resuming what critics rightfully called "soulfood for melancholics".


Once again produced by Hans-Joachim Irmler from Faust, 'So Waltz' will be released October 20th via Klangbad.



Shiraz Lane Tour kicks off in Berlin today!

Finnish young rock dynamite returns to European venues this Fall.


We're excited to announce the return of Finnish young rock dynamite Shiraz Lane, with a brand new video and single 'Harder to Breath' released today by Frontiers Music - and a European tour supporting Brother Firetribe in October and November! Tour kicks off in Berlin today, dates here.

The band has been working with Swedish producer Per Aldeheim (for trainspotters: Max Martin’s bandmate in their glam funk metal (sic) band It’s Alive and later collaborator at legendary Cheiron studios) on infusing a massive blast of fresh air into the upcoming neo hard rock genre while paying homage to predecessors Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses et al.


'Harder To Breath' indicates that they may be onto something.



debut EP: 'GodGiven' by Lex Audrey

Austrian band Lex Audrey has just released their first EP on Las Vegas Records!


We often need to take a closer look to comprehend the worth of things. Therefore the name of the Band Lex Audrey, with its implied allusion to Audrey Hepburn asks the audience to share a closer look at the world.

This look should also meet their debut EP 'GodGiven', which has been released end of September.

On 'GodGiven', Lex Audrey confronts the audience with contrasts and spectra, they combine euphoria and sadness and master to shift the musical boundaries between Rock, Pop and Electronic.



new signing: Better Person

Polish-born and Berlin-based musician Better Person just signed an worldwide author's agreement with Freibank!

Prior to his first release, Adam occasionally played guitar and keyboard with one of Montreal's gems, Sean Nicolas Savage, as well as touring with the lovely TOPS and Timber Timbre.

His aesthetic has been well described as: "Mopey but also kind of groovy - the kind of song you might shuffle around to with your head hanging low as the dance floor lights flicker on at the end of the night." Having been compared to the sounds of highly revered artists such as Sade, Dean Blunt, Arthur Russell, and James Ferraro, we can promise that Better Person will seduce you if not with his dreamy voice and stage presence, then surely with his romantic yet tragic lyrics all about our (and likely yours) favorite topic: love.

His latest release - Zakochany Człowiek a single sang entirely in his native Polish tongue is an instant hit that cuts strong and deep with its earworm melody, moony synth hook, and dense Romantic aura.


Also check arthouse ode to Julio Iglesias, he did with Sean Nicholas Savage to romance the night with Moonlight Lady video.



new catalogue: Nordic Music Society

Freibank subpublishes the catalogue of Copenhagen-based label for G/S/A!
