Trentemøller's 'Silent Night'
We wish you a great holiday and all the best for 2020!
Hello, this is Trentemøller.
I have genuinely loved Christmas since I was a little boy.
And I always wanted to do my own version of one of the great Christmas songs.
I chose Silent Night as it has such a beautiful melody that, for me, sums up the whole vibe of Christmas.
Originally it was a lullaby and since I became a dad, 'Silent Night' made so much sense to me especially as it's my girlfriend Lisbet Fritze who sings on it.
On the cover it’s me with my mom one Christmas night many years ago.
I hope you like my take on the song and may I wish you the very merriest of Christmases and the happiest of New Years and thank you so very much for letting me spend this Christmas with you.
new signing: Voiski
We are thrilled to announce, that we've signed French Techno DJ & producer Luc Kheradmand aka Voiski!
In a time when the techno world often can give the impression of “the harder, the better”, Voiski has a different approach. He is not afraid to admit he wants his music and DJ-sets to contain groove. Coming from an art school background (something that continuously keeps informing his work as a musician), he is one of the most analytical constructive artists on the scene, well aware of his own process, continuously examining it as he goes further.
Famous for his uninterrupted loops, whether they are part of more intense techno tracks, straight up electro-pieces, or his recent productions that carry a more gentle approach. The element of repetition is ongoing through his catalogue, creating a direct link to the minimalistic classical composers of the 60's.
Prestigious labels like Construct Re-Form, L.I.E.S., Delsin, Dekmantel and Field Records are just a handful of the ones showcasing his work.
Out: 'Round And Round'
Matthias Tanzmann has released his third full length album!
Always staying one step ahead of the game, Matthias Tanzmann is back with a new album that breaks the traditional model. Entitled 'Round And Round' and due on his own mighty label Moon Harbour, the record came out track by track over the course of autumn and winter 2019.
'Round And Round' comes three years after 'Momentum', Tanzmann’s last album. This third full length is a more widescreen overview of his entire career and comes just after he was nominated, for the sixth time, as the Best Tech House DJ in the annual Ibiza DJ Awards.
'Round And Round' is an autobiographical album informed by another busy year of gigs at major festivals around the world, his famous Circoloco residency at DC10 and further Ibiza gigs everywhere from ANTS to Elrow to Music On. September also saw the release of the Better Lost Than Stupid album 'Wild Slide', a collaborative work with pals Davide Squillace and Martin Buttrich that shows that decades after first starting out, Tanzmann is still very much at the forefront of the global underground scene.
'New Breed' by James BKS feat. Q-Tip, Idris Elba & Little Simz
The new single 'New Breed' by James BKS was released on the 15th of November with a variety of featured artists such as Little Simz, Idris Elba and Q-Tip.
As James says, the formation “proudly represent the New Breed movement, a different way to approach music with no borders, no judgment, no labels. We have learned from our past mistakes and victories and our eyes are on Africa, while in the meantime we embrace our own personal paths, respectively in the UK for Little Simz and Idris Elba, in the US for Q-Tip, and in France for me.”
The single is a accompanied by an animated Video directed by Stevie Gee and Essy May we can't get enough of.
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.
