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.

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

new release: No. III by No. Artists

No. III continues the centuries long tradition, invented by the label masterminds in 2013.

No. - the disorganisation invented by the label masterminds Uwe Schmidt aka Atom™ and Material Object (André Ruello) in 2013 - are cataloging their 3rd year of Existence with No. III.

No. III continues the centuries long tradition, invented by the label masterminds in 2013, of remixing the very concept of a 'compilation' by slicing, remixing, autotuning and YouTubing the entire year of the label's output into the blender for a completely new cocktail that goes beyond merely re-packaging previously released product.

released September 11th via No.



new release: Danielle de Picciotto & Sonae

'Leise Fäden' is out since September 5th!


The two artists Danielle de Picciotto and Sonae were introduced to each other by Gudrun Gut.

Both are represented on Monika Enterprise as solo artists and belong to the label collective Monika Werkstatt. 'Leise Fäden' ('Quiet Threads') is a poetic musical essay in 8 parts. A tender dissection of our present world.



out soon: 'Brother Equal' by Random Willson & Brokof

Brokof and Greg Northrop's debut album will be out September 1st via Goldrausch Records!

'Brother Equal' is a transatlantic collaboration of poet, singer/songwriter, Random Willson (Greg Northrop) and Berlin based band Brokof.

Produced by Goldrausch owners, Fabian Brokof and Arne Bergner, the record has a very natural, intimate, conversational tone. 'Brother Equal', is clearly a collaboration, but more so an understanding between established Berlin quartet Brokof and their new New York neighbor Random Willson.

Their conversation is warm and honest, one they’d like to have with the world. 'Brother Equal' is a snapshot of a man transitioning from living in NYC to Berlin. Northrop's poetry reflects a wandering poet, writing post cards, learning from trials and yearning for the bright side. Fabian Brokof and Arne Bergner of Brokof, opened a door for Random Willson and have done a fine job bringing Northrop’s poetry and playing to fruition. Their skill set nicely augments his narrative, allowing them to weave in their own instrumental sensibilities and a long - nurtured affinity towards American Singer - Songwriters. Add groove master Puya Shoary (Brokof drummer and Percussionist) and Brokof's Rocksteady Bassman Rocco Weiseto the mix and RW&B is what you get.


'Brother Equal' will be out on World Peace Day, September 1st via Goldrausch Records.


Freibank and hfn Music are part of the Reeperbahn Festival 2017!

Two Hamburg institutions in the music landscape join forces and build the 'freihfn'.


Independent publisher freibank and indietronic imprint hfn-music have collaborated on countless projects since the early 90’s, most recently in respect of Trentemøller. Jointly putting on an eclectic showcase, hosted by Hamburg Haus @ St. Pauli Museum, during the Reeperbahn Festival 2017 is a overdue pleasure.

The diverse program ranges from the mind-blowing Iranian-German newcomers Pari San via compelling Danish singer-songwriter Jacob Bellens and Danish electro-pop eccentric Lydmor as well as promsising Hamburg-based electro pop duo Me Succeeds, who close out the night.
