New release: 'African Paradigm' by Mr Raoul K

The Afro House pioneer completed his first album for Compost Records.

 

After having left the Ivory Coast, Raoul Konan N'Dah Kouassi aka Mr Raoul K first set foot on German soil with his twin brother in 1992 and chose Hamburg to be his new home. Hamburg is also where he first got in touch with the aesthetic vibe of house


& techno music that was played at the local clubs, after which he was immediately sold: these nightly experiences resulted in a steep turn in his career.


Now being considered as one of the pioneers of Afro House, it took Mr Raoul K more than three years of work inside and outside the studio to complete his first album for Compost Records. His first goal was to show all the musical influences he came across during his time in Ivory Coast. His second goal was to share his view on Africa through his music, making 'African Paradigm' a political album as well.


Today Raoul has proven his production and DJ talents throughout the world, having performed at major venues and his music is being played by other prominent artists and he remains devoted to his passion - continually renewing the world of music and its definition while staying true to his roots and values.

New signing: Das Neu

Welcome to Freibank, DAS NEU!

 

You can find DAS NEU inbetween political and social chaos, technology and an ever changing way of communication within the world wide web. The band members grew up as part of a digital generation, who are influenced by any kind of music and bored by the repeating topics of the lyrical input of current german hip hop acts of 2019. They try to free their minds and rethink those themes.

 

In their first single 'Lovestream' they talk about the social media addiction of every day life and intertwine the aesthetic and usage of the different platforms.

Have a listen or watch the video to 'Lovestream'. Now!

'Potential For Havoc' is out!

Burnt Friedman recorded an EP for London-based LMD Recordings.

"The singular musician and producer has recorded a new EP for the label which will released in October on vinyl only next month. The EP see's him take a distinctive step forwards into the realm of club focussed material with the release built up of a carefully comprised assortment of leftfield house, drum & bass, dub and outsider percussion.


Titled 'Potential For Havoc' the EP marks a new chapter in a lengthy career which has seen Bernd Friedmann release music on a wide array of record labels such as Honest Jons, Dekmantel, Bright Sounds, Latency and many more. He has also released a prolific array of material on his own Nonplace label which continues to showcase the experimental fringes of electronic music and beyond." (words: RAN$OM NOTE)


Davide Squillace of Techno supergroup, Better Lost Than Stupid (Martin Buttrich, Davide Squillace and Matthias Tanzmann) recently stated in The Sun: 'In my opinion, he’s probably one of the most underrated artists on the planet. The way he uses Western and Easter rhythms is a unique blending of who he is; it’s almost impossible to pin him down to a genre or style. His obsession with rhythmical structure is what I would say makes him a true master of our time.'

 

Out since October 7th via LMD Recordings.
