upcoming release by Alexander Hacke and David Eugene Edwards

'Risha' will be out June 22nd via Glitterhouse!

 

David Eugene Edwards and Alexander Hacke will release their first collaboration album entitled Risha.

 

Both know each other for ages. They have a connection since the early days of 16 Horsepower and collaborated on the reunion album 'American Twilight' by Australian Indie Rock outfit Crime & The City Solution (2013). Finally they found the time to record this astonishing piece of an album.


'Risha' - which means 'Feather' in Arabic - cannot be described in traditional terms. This sound is a sweeping tapestry of Americana, Neo-Folk, Industrial, Ambient, Electronic and Arabic Music.


'Risha' will be released June 22nd via Glitterhouse Records followed by extensive touring.

It's coming: Pari San release their debut album 'R.I.P. Identification' in fall

second single 'Lie' will be out June 8th!

 

On their much-acclaimed 2016 Frozen Time EP (including collaborations with Markus Ganter and Robot Koch as well as a feverish, fascinating music video of Rammstein director Zoran Bihać), Pari San already set a massive exclamation point with tons of style and elegant, modern Pop-Electronica. But their long-awaited debut album R.I.P. Identification will have a much bigger surprise in store.


The painstaking, passionate collaboration with electronic music innovator Markus Popp aka Oval, who has co-produced R.I.P. Identification, has resulted in radically innovative, yet masterfully crafted songs.

 

Pari San are Iran-born musician Parisa Eskandari and the Berlin-based producer Paul Brenning - together they conjure sensual, urban songscapes between pop and avant-garde.


The special chemistry between Pari and Paul creates sheer, electrifying tension: Iranian flair meets Berlin, oriental mysticism meets western rationality, impulsiveness collides with technical precision. Eskandari's unmistakable vocal style effortlessly dissolves the boundaries between day and dream.


On their tour you will see the premiere of never-before-performed R.I.P. Identification material as part of Pari San's set list: epic, gripping songs, embedded in an engaging live performance. Not to be missed.

new Wolfgang Tillmans EP out!

'Source' comes remixed as a fluffy, minimal tech house cut by Roman Flügel

'Source', a new release by Wolfgang Tillmans, comes in an original version and two remixes by legendary German producer Roman Flügel.

The sixteen-minute original version is a vocal piece in which Tillmans explores his abilities to generate vocal sounds to tell a story while refraining from using actual words. Meshing six different sequences into one composition, each sequence investigates different moods and emotions meandering between the guttural, sacral, and absurd. Recorded in a studio session in 2017, the piece focuses on the immediacy of vocal improvisation as much as on its post-production and edit.

 

Out since May 4th via tillman's very own Fragile.

Out since May 1st: 'Joy'

hackedepicciotto have released their second meditation soundtrack!

 

Danielle de Picciotto and Alexander Hacke gave up their home in Berlin in 2010 and since then travel the world, on the one hand to broaden their horizons and on the other hand to find a place where they can found a cultural site in which they support other artists and themselves can generate art.


After their enthusiastically received meditation soundtrack 'Unity' from 2016, they now released 'Joy' on May 1st 2018. This time with two guest musicians Vincent Signorelli (Unsane) and Eric Hubel (Glenn Branca).


These musicians are better known for their American hardcore bands, but Eric has been a yoga master for 20 years and Vincent was one of the first followers of the New York Hare Krishna movement. The album was recorded in Tulum, Mexico; Montreal, Canada; NYC, USA and Berlin. The result is ten beautiful pieces, unusual in their instrumentation.

Just out: 'Alma' by Tim Engelhardt & BOg

Poker Flat go for the jugular with this blazing collaborative EP.

Tim Engelhardt is one of the hottest talents around, forging a hugely prolific career from his hometown of Cologne, Germany. Just recently Tim released his debut album 'Moments of Truth' on Poker Flat followed by a remix EP.


Teaming up with the hugely talented Bogdan Tanase aka BOg from Romania, the boys put together a strong musical statement. [...]


'Alma' also showcases the pair’s ears for dynamics - each element in the track perfectly crafted and mixed - the result is an emotional dance floor experience that’s more than the sum of its parts. Turning up the heat, 'Astronauts' kicks of with a thumping groove that builds and mutates across the track - resulting in a driving, powerful weapon for a multitude of situations.“ (words: Inhale/UK)
