new signing: Cats & Breakkies

We welcome young, talented live-techno band Cats & Breakkies from Berlin!

Cats & Breakkis have jazz in their hearts and techno in their genes. With a classical band line-up - e-guitar, bass, drums, keys - they rock an instrumental dj-live-set on stages, floors and festivals anytime. Always danceable to, with courage to elegiac melodies, opulent breaks and rich surfaces, they convince above all by a precise build-up of tension and tonal dimension in their arrangements. After their debut album 'Organic Electro', co-produced with David August, had been released in 2015, they were nominated for the 'Bremer Jazzpreis 2016' in the category 'Jazz & Electronics', followed by multiple performances at festivals and clubs, eg. at the Kantine am Berghain, the Tallinn Music Week and the Fusion Festival. With 'Spectral' 2018 they stepped up their game yet again. In ten tracks, which consists of three individual short-sets, they weave artful tonal and metric layers, drill thick disco-boards, deliver perfect build up and drop dramaturgy - and above all in a relaxed way put on immense pressure. Cats & Breakkies, that is elegant, straightforward live-techno from Berlin.


The bands new single 'Haus ohne Türen' will be out August 30th and features Berlin-based photographer Stephan Noë.

German Producers Shuko & The Breed team up for Westcoast LP 'Dippin''!

The collaboration between producers Shuko and The Breed (MC Eiht, Nipsey Hussle, Cypress Hill) was love at first sight.

Thanks to their preference for classic Westcoast sound, they immediately found a common denominator and harmonized excellently during the production. The result is the album 'Dippin'', based on the song with the same name by Westcoast legend King Tee, who besides MC Eiht and Benny Singsis also the only rap feature on the instrumental hiphop album. After the song 'Life In Los Angeles' with the Westcoast legends, the tune 'Cali Sunshine' has officially announced the joint record of the producers, which is available on black gold in addition to the digital release at June 7th.

'Dippin'' is out since June 7th on Shuko's label For The Love Of It.

Ensemble Du Verre about to release his 8th album

'Jet-Black Notebook' is the eighth album release of drummer, composer, producer Sönke Düwer

together with his Ensemble Du Verre on Batterie Lable since the founding of the project in 2003.


"Going forth and back on notes is just so vital for me that I even wrote a song about it, performed by the great Nora Becker, a Hamburg-based vocalist, who already contributed with her great voice on my last album 'Rooms'."


It has never been easy to refer Ensemble Du Verre to a single music style. Now it is popular music, probably coming from Jazz, always influenced by HipHop, House and Soul elements.

 

"Just like on 'Rooms', all songs are written in way that they can be performed only with vocals and piano (except for two instrumental songs). So I guess 'Jet-Black Notebook' could be considered a singer/songwriter album. My Music can be many differnt things at the same time."

Burnt Friedman has a new album on his way!

'Musical Traditions in Central Europe (Explorer Series Vol.4)' will be out this Friday via Nonplace.

 

" 'Musical Traditions In Central Europe: Explorer Series Vol. 4' takes the form of an ethnological compilation, but includes only Friedman's music and fits into an "Explorer Series" that never previously existed. As with much of his body of work, the Berlin-based artist uses the conceptual angle to rail against dominant Western musical traditions.


'The system of scales, and also the fact that the western central Europeans rely on recorded or written script in order to conserve the themes of their music, could lead us to look upon it as a form of art music', reads the press release. 'Remarkably enough, traditional house or techno which existed 30 years ago, still flourishes today. Moreover, all the time new forms and musical styles are being discovered, tried out and eventually overlooked.'


The label describes it as a 'modest sampling of extinct splendors, political or individual sufferings, gloomy sadness, love, resentment, exquisite delicacy, laughter and delectable wisdom of rural and urban central European music.' The forthcoming full-length features the Brazilian artist Lucas Santtana and saxophonist Hayden Chisholm."
