German Producers Shuko & The Breed team up for Westcoast LP 'Dippin''!

The collaboration between producers Shuko and The Breed (MC Eiht, Nipsey Hussle, Cypress Hill) was love at first sight.

Thanks to their preference for classic Westcoast sound, they immediately found a common denominator and harmonized excellently during the production. The result is the album 'Dippin'', based on the song with the same name by Westcoast legend King Tee, who besides MC Eiht and Benny Singsis also the only rap feature on the instrumental hiphop album. After the song 'Life In Los Angeles' with the Westcoast legends, the tune 'Cali Sunshine' has officially announced the joint record of the producers, which is available on black gold in addition to the digital release at June 7th.

'Dippin'' is out since June 7th on Shuko's label For The Love Of It.

Ensemble Du Verre about to release his 8th album

'Jet-Black Notebook' is the eighth album release of drummer, composer, producer Sönke Düwer

together with his Ensemble Du Verre on Batterie Lable since the founding of the project in 2003.


"Going forth and back on notes is just so vital for me that I even wrote a song about it, performed by the great Nora Becker, a Hamburg-based vocalist, who already contributed with her great voice on my last album 'Rooms'."


It has never been easy to refer Ensemble Du Verre to a single music style. Now it is popular music, probably coming from Jazz, always influenced by HipHop, House and Soul elements.

 

"Just like on 'Rooms', all songs are written in way that they can be performed only with vocals and piano (except for two instrumental songs). So I guess 'Jet-Black Notebook' could be considered a singer/songwriter album. My Music can be many differnt things at the same time."

Burnt Friedman has a new album on his way!

'Musical Traditions in Central Europe (Explorer Series Vol.4)' will be out this Friday via Nonplace.

 

" 'Musical Traditions In Central Europe: Explorer Series Vol. 4' takes the form of an ethnological compilation, but includes only Friedman's music and fits into an "Explorer Series" that never previously existed. As with much of his body of work, the Berlin-based artist uses the conceptual angle to rail against dominant Western musical traditions.


'The system of scales, and also the fact that the western central Europeans rely on recorded or written script in order to conserve the themes of their music, could lead us to look upon it as a form of art music', reads the press release. 'Remarkably enough, traditional house or techno which existed 30 years ago, still flourishes today. Moreover, all the time new forms and musical styles are being discovered, tried out and eventually overlooked.'


The label describes it as a 'modest sampling of extinct splendors, political or individual sufferings, gloomy sadness, love, resentment, exquisite delicacy, laughter and delectable wisdom of rural and urban central European music.' The forthcoming full-length features the Brazilian artist Lucas Santtana and saxophonist Hayden Chisholm."

Giant Rooks have just released their 2nd EP

'Wild Stare' is out on Irrsinn/ Universal since April 19th!

 

December last year, the single 'Wild Stare' was the first sign of life by Giant Rooks after their acclaimed EP 'New Estate'. Now, they have just released their second EP, named after the lead single.


And it shows why they are the most promising newcomer in their native country - Germany. With 'Wild Stare' they put their money where their mouths are, showing their musical spectrum, their exuberant talent, and their infectious serenity.


Giant Rooks know exactly what is happening in their generation. Their position is cosmopolitan, just like their sound. They’ve already broken out of Germany and landed an international record deal with Irrsinn/Universal. Furthermore they are as used to playing in Manchester or London as other German indie bands are playing in Berlin or Hamburg. And the venues are getting bigger, tickets are sold faster and big chunks of the tour promoting their EP are sold out already.


Giant Rooks are still only in their early 20s and therefore outrageously young. If they continue to write songs with such incredible intensity, the expectations for their debut album are growing wild.

 

The band is currently on tour and plays shows all over Europe!

Loyalty Does Not End With Death

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Carl Abrahamsson release the 3rd part of their spoken word trilogy through Swedish label iDEAL recordings.

 

In 1990, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge collaborated with Carl Abrahamsson's project White Stains, which led to the classic ambient/spoken word album 'At Stockholm'. In 2004, P-Orridge and Abrahamsson's following project, Cotton Ferox, made the album 'Wordship'. Yet another fourteen years later, the two long-time friends have made the final (?) part of their spoken word trilogy: 'Loyalty Does Not End With Death'.


The album was recorded in New York (c/o Sean Ragon of Cult Of Youth) and Stockholm 2017-2018. The result is a psychedelic prism of the very finest P-Orridgean poetry and the always playful sounds of Abrahamsson.

 

This time they have decided to leave all monikers and project names behind (Psychic TV, Thee Majesty, White Stains, Cotton Ferox), to be able to fully focus on the bare essentials: poetry wrapped in a vibrant vehicle of love and magic. It's a powerful stand-alone album with a unique life of its own. It's also a part of a trilogy of works that carries the piercing poetry of Genesis Breyer P-Orridge onwards through time and through the ether, immaculately dressed in warm, electronic scapes and revelatory cut up sound structures. But, perhaps most of all, it's a living, breathing testament of a creative friendship that has also taken the forms of writing, interviews, photographs and films ('Change Itself' 2016) for almost 35 years.

Danielle de Picciotto announces new solo album

'Deliverance' will be out May 15th on UK label Louder Than War

Danielle de Picciotto's new album 'Deliverance' which is being released by the label Louder Than War on May 15, will be obtainable as a hard cover vinyl collector's item featuring 24 pages of the art she has created during her years of traveling including a hand signed screen print.


'Deliverance' speaks of these travels and the state of our world from an eagle's perspective. Despair and hope lie side by side, mirroring the dark shadows and beauty she has experienced on her journey.

 

Her music is a mixture of spoken word, electronic soundscapes, melancholic violin harmonies, and surreal choirs, moving back and forth from experimental sounds to beautiful melodies managing thus to blend hope and despair into a cosmos of constant flux.

 

Imagine Laurie Anderson dancing with This Mortal Coil in a strange wasteland of dreams and sounds, that is Danielle's universe. It is one that faces reality and its challenges with mystical, dreamlike wisdom, discovering solutions in unexpected alcoves, offering hope and wonder as an alternative.
