Out Now: 'Carnival Days' by Shiraz Lane

Shiraz Lane return to italian Frontiers Records for the release of their second album!

 

Shiraz Lane have been extremely busy throughout 2017 composing, producing and recording their second album in collaboration with the Swedish producer Per Aldeheim (Def Leppard, Soilwork, Lambretta).


Shiraz Lane personifies creative variety, which resonates through their double-edged guitar sound (produced by lead guitarist Jani Laine and rhythm guitarist Miki Kalske), groovy-yet-solid ground pounding (Ana Willman drums & Joel Alex bass) and the unmistakably high-soaring melodies chanted by lead singer Hannes Kett. Despite their relative youth, they are already veterans of the underground circuit in their homeland and have developed a reputation for being uncompromising, loud, and most of all, the genuine article.


Although wearing inspiration and paying homage to their predecessors like Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses, their sound and music is destined to develop into something unique. Members of Halestorm, The 69 Eyes, Amorphis, Children Of Bodom, Lordi and Sonic Syndicate have all praised the band’s live efforts.

new Francis Harris Solo EP out since February 23rd

'Minor Forms' is out on Scissor & Thread since February 23rd and includes remixes by Valentino Mora.

 

Francis Harris’ own output has gone from tightly wound tech house cuts as Adultnapper in the early days, sublime deep house as Frank & Tony, intricate and expressive musical journeys as evident in his two solo-albums 'Leland' and 'Minutes Of Sleep', and ambient shoegaze with two Aris Kindt albums, co-produced with Gabe Hedrick. Most recently Harris branched out with a new label - Kingdoms - a home for his love of a more adventurous sound.


Now we are proud to present his new solo single, the first since the release of 'Minutes of Sleep', 'Minor Forms' which includes two remarkable remixes by Valentino Mora.

Steve Bug & Langenberg Team up for album 'Paradise Sold'

First single 'NGC 6240' will be out February 23rd!

 

Following on from the well received 'Chord Cluster' EP from late 2017, the irresistible pairing of Steve Bug and Langenberg return with 'Paradise Sold' - a full ten track album of exquisitely crafted house music on Bug’s own Poker Flat Recordings (out: 6th of April 2018).


Neither Steve Bug nor Langenberg needs much introduction due to the sizeable contributions both have made in building the European house and techno scene as we know it. Bug’s relentless commitment to quality - both in his own work and in the many producers he has championed - has made him one of electronic music's most revered artists and curators.


The first single called 'NGC 6240' will be released with two remixes from Tim Engelhardt and Vince Watson on February 23rd.

new release by Omsk Information and Dr. Walker

'Café Keese' is out since February 12th on Lucidflow!

 

Credentials don’t come more comprehensive than the pairing of Omsk Information and Dr. Walker, the pair behind release #149 for Lucidflow. The former has been a product developer for M-Audio and Native Instruments, contributing to the glittering constellation of products such as Traktor and Maschine. The latter is Ingmar Koch, co-founder of Kompakt records, who boasts a history sharing the Harvest Records label with Pink Floyd, Deep Purple and Can, amassing an astonishing 800 strong catalogue of vinyl, CD and remix releases.


Unsurprisingly the 'Café Keese' release - named after a café in Berlin - is fully flavoured, laden with the experience on show. It leads the way with the Ball Paradox version of the title track, stepping out on finest form. It is swinging, melodic and intoxicating in the manner with which it swirls around your head. It’s the Lucidflow manifesto given a wry spin, with dub stabs coming from pizzicato strings and a twinkle in the eye of the melodies on show.

new signing: Giant Rooks

Freibank has just signed worldwide publishing agreement with german art-pop band Giant Rooks.

 

Hailing from Hamm in North West Germany, Giant Rooks are art-pop five-piece who’ve been turning heads since their inception.

 

It was this first EP in 2015 release that saw the groundwork laid for the band to win the popNRW Prize for newcomers in 2016, as well as two consecutive summers of festivals, which saw the band play over 80 festival shows including Reeperbahn, Eurosonic and The Great Escape. In addition to this, the band have also supported Kraftklub and The Temper Trap, not to mention a 29-date, nine country tour with Mighty Oaks throughout November and December 2017.

 

If that initial EP was what set the wheels of the hype-train in motion, it was the release of its follow-up, the New Estate EP (Haldern Pop Records 2017), which has cemented the reputation of Giant Rooks in Germany, Austria, Luxembourg and Switzerland.

 

2018 will see the band embark on their second major tour, with the 23 dates taking in shows in Germany, The Netherlands and UK.

 

Their debut album is scheduled for 2018.

release: new EP by André Winter

'Lucide' is out since Jannuary 26th on Oliver Huntemann's Senso Sounds!

 

André Winter is one of the key artists on Oliver Huntemann's label, releasing material for Senso Sounds since 2014. Fans of Huntemann's ominous, bass-heavy sound may be surprised by 'Lucide'. On the title track, the Hamburg producer lays down a pulsating, clubby groove, but also mysterious, evocative vocals in French, bee-sting bleeps and dubbed out filters. It's less upfront than some of Senso's releases, but is still deadly effective. For those who are still seeking the label's clubby sound, there is 'Voyuerist' to conned with. Centred around loose drums and huge, whooshing filters, it houses the kind of brutal, functional bass that Huntemann himself is known for.
