'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.

“Futuro anteriore / Presente continuo”: 'Aphàiresis'

'Aphàiresis' is a series of video music works that investigates the relationship between Materiality and Immateriality, between Presence and Metaphysics.

 

1)The most subversive and contemporary creative gesture, witnessing the Human Presence, can be the creative control of error, the controlled deviation of the numerical series in a dimension in which the human presence contributes to curving time, to grafting a colour into a sound, a cinematographic image into an aseptic texture, a musical sequence in the background of a tree, in a slower time, purified and richer in meaning.


2)We must occasionally remind the dust (aphar) that it was once man and immortal matter. A vibrant and pulsating presence anxieties. Uncertain whisper and accurate and imperfect “silere”. Fear of glances at the announcement and the contraction of the day. For always and again the shattered appears to us with each discolouring. Always and again we propose ourselves in the "nembi" 's molecular colours . It is felt more intense far away, where the lenses barely perceive the dense breath of other universes. It insuffles itself decisively and, by leaps and bounds, it infiltrates into our poor houses and bodies. A little sparkles out in the open and soothes in the sacred enclosure of dreams. Perhaps this is why a piercing pain resonates in the hollow organs and reverberates inadvertently. And so it is worthwhile to step aside and listen to one another on the sidelines. Let yourself be traversed by flows and be disoriented by sounds.

 

'Aphàiresis' by Gianluca Iadema is out since September 13th via Mille Plateaux/ Force Inc.

rRoxymore announces long-anticipated debut album!

'Face To Phase' is scheduled for release September 27th via Don't Be Afraid.

'Face To Phase, was born of rRoxymore's annual creative hibernation practice. Whereas her previous appearances for Don't Be Afraid - 'Thoughts Of An Introvert' Parts 1 & 2 - revealed inner worlds of saturated colour and natural expressiveness, she retreated into her studio at the turn of winter 2018 occupied with the idea of dismantling the dancefloor-centric pressure paradigm.

 

The resulting album, 'Face to Phase', finds rRoxymore methodically and mindfully stripping back to fundamentals: rumbling minimalist dub, sparse polymetric drums, boldy unpredictable melodic narratives and subtleties which hover out-of-reach or disappear into vapour. Forged by the spirit of club music cultures, 'Face To Phase' favours deep listening; resisting the temptation to reflect on the past or project towards the future, it's an album that is firmly rooted in the contemporary.

Shiraz Lane announce new single!

'Do You' will be out August 16th via Ranka Kustannus

"We are thrilled to announce the release of our new single 'Do You'. It is a groovy mixture of ground pounding riffs and angelic melodies that will captive the ears of all listeners. We think this is a solid successor for the style we set out to accomplish on our previous album ('Carnival Days'), but with evolved composing, arranging and production joining forces yet again with our trusted producer wizard Per Aldeheim.

After releasing two albums with Frontiers Music Srl. we felt like it was time to welcome a fresh breeze of expertise in the room and decided to made the transition continuing our journey with Ranka Kustannus (Riku Pääkönen). Riku is known to be one of the most ambitious names in the music business; originally signing bands like Nightwish and Children Of Bodom and helping them to the point in which they are today. 'Do You' is the first taste of what we have been cooking behind the scenes together and we hope that all you people out there will give it a spin, since this banger is bound to sweep you off your feet!"

News from our Partner Third Side Music

We bring you some news on new releases, signings and catalogues from our canadian partner Third Side Music:

 

New EP by SOFI TUKKER in September

The dance pop duo from the USA has celebrated a great amount of successes in the last couple of years (just to name one: Grammy nomination) and their music has been placed in big commercials of brands such as Apple and is regularly featured in various movies and series.

This year, SOFI TUKKER have already released the three singles: 'Playa Grande' (click for song), 'Fantasy' (click for video) and 'Swing' (click for video). Now they have confirmed to release a new EP on the 20th of September 2019 titled 'Dancing On the People'. Sophie and Tucker have recently talked about the EP and describe is as follows: "When you’re dancing in the club and it’s so packed you completely lose yourself in it and don’t even know where you end and the next person begins, cuz you’re all one vibration, that’s when you’re dancing on the people. It’s a feeling of complete lack of inhibition and complete connection. It’s the feeling you get at our parties and it’s the best feeling in the world!"

This is not just the best description of the new songs, but for sure also of their past concerts. We recommend you to take part in this party. Your next chances are coming up! SOFI TUKKER will headline a couple of shows this December including Frankfurt, Hamburg, Köln, München und Berlin.

 

New signing from Australia: Haiku Hands

One of the new editions to the Third Side Music-Family and therefore also to the Freibank-Family are Haiku Hands.
The Trio is from the other side of the world - Australia - and musically, they feel home in various kind of genres. They get inspired by hip hop, pop, electro, disco, mix and match everything together and end up creating an impulsive piece of art. The badass australian outfit first burst onto the scene with their stellar debut track 'Not About You' (click for video); a single that mixes a bold sensibility for the dancefloor with cheeky girl gang lyrics and M.I.A. energy. Their newest single is called 'Dare You Not To Dance' (click for video), but forbiddingly makes you wanna dance.

We are already looking forward to hearing more from the three energy balls!

 

New Signing: Chaos Chaos

We would also like to introduce to you the Brooklyn / New York based Sisterduo Chaos Chaos (until 2012 formerly known as Smoosh), who also just recently signed to the Third Side Music Roster. Asya and Chloe Saavedra (born mid 90s) have been making music together since their childhood and released three albums under their old band name. After a couple of EPs, they released their fourth album in 2018 as Chaos Chaos. Despite their young age, they have already gathered a lot of experience through out their career and shared the stage with well known artists such as Pearl Jam, Death Cab For Cutie, Tokyo Police Club, The Dresden Dolls, Jimmy Eat World and Cat Power. Wow!

Furthermore, they gained a broader awareness after the song 'Do You Feel It' (click for song) got picked for the successful comic series 'Rick and Morty'. Co-Creator of the series Justin Roiland himself is a huge fan of the band and was even featured in the song 'Terryfold', which landed the electro pop duo their first chart entry. 'Armed and Dangerous' (click for video) is the most recent song and was released in May 2019.

 

Soundway-Catalogue including afrobeat and funk from Ghana

Just recently, our canadian partner has takes over the catalogue of Soundway Records. Part of this diverse catalogue are releases from african, latin american and asian artists from 1950 up to today. These include the best-selling compilation "Doing It In Lagos" (2016) and others such as Nigeria Special, Ghana Special & Kenya Special compilation albums that Cleret spent years bringing together. With these compilations alongside a string of highly sought-after rare reissue albums, the label has also began in 2012 to develop a series of original contemporary releases. These include releases from acts such as Batida, Ibibio Sound Machine, Debruit & Alsarah, Ondatropica, The Meridian Brothers, Bomba Estereo, Family Atlantica, Dexter Story, The Heliocentrics, Lord Echo and The Mauskovic Dance Band.
