OUT: DAS NEU release their second single 'Kids'.

With their new song 'Kids' (Video), german hip hop act DAS NEU create a bittersweet story of failure, escaping the past and the estrangement towards your own youth. The band discuss their restless but aimless search of the abstract word 'home' and describe the loss of their relationship toward their home town and former friends.

Everyone can relate to these feelings. Everyone fears them. But they seem to be inevitable in life.


OUT: New single 'Watershed' by Giant Rooks

Giant Rooks are climbing their way up to the top.

OUT: 'The Current' by hackedepicciotto

'The Current' is the fourth album hackedepicciotto have recorded since becoming nomads in 2010.

It is their most powerful album yet. After composing desert drones for their previous album 'Perseverantia' and dark foreboding melodies for 'Menetekel', their new album moves forwards, gaining in speed and energy. Alexander Hacke's background with Einstürzende Neubauten can be felt in the many rhythmic tracks.

"We had the urge to include more percussive elements and electronic sounds to create a powerful rhythmic feel. A wilder and more danceable element. Something to get all of us on our feet, and moving. Away from depression and hopelessness."

The classic background of Danielle de Picciotto has become more prominent as well. Glorious choirs and violin harmonies flow throughout the album giving it an almost symphonic sound.

The artist couple calls their music "cinematic-drone" and their album sounds like the film track to an apocalyptic feature-length film, hopefully with a happy end.


Video for The Seventh Day was directed by the Spanish artist Helio León and shot in Cork, Ireland in the last days of December 2019.

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.
