Since Hamburg based Denis Karimani aka Remute produced a techno track with samples of Donald Trump’s presidential announcement last year I hit him up via twitter earlier today if this wasn’t the right time for an update. And here we go:
Some hours later he replied with this video. What a fun dude. Remute of course, not Donald Trump if that for some reason shouldn’t be clear ;-)
Time will tell. True words reflecting the artistic and mainly personal metamorphosis Klaudia Gawlas has gone through in recent years. The result is her second album Vision in which she approaches a place she calls home in a musical context.
The energetic but at the same time deeper and more sophisticated sound of Vision is proof the she has taken a big step towards reaching the artistic level her true inner self has been striving for. As so often in life, a strong vision leads to a very pure form of motivation, which finally turns wishful thinking into action. Vision is a straight statement and commitment to the roots of techno. Something that matches pretty well what Klaudia Gawlas is known to stand for.
Here is the tracklist, to be released in november via Alex Bau’s label Credo on CD and digitally.
As some of you who regularly listen to my podcast probably know I’m kind of a fan of Robert Babicz. After roundabout 25 years of experience in the business he recently claimed that he is now an “advanced beginner”. Probably one of the biggest understatements ever.
So, the other day I was excited to find a mail in my inbox with the subject “Robert Babicz new Ambient Album in October on Traum Schallplatten”. I did not see that coming. He has released an ambient album before (“Dessert“) but that was back in 2000 on Mille Plateaux.
Here we are 16 years later. “A Moment Of Loud Silence” which will be released on Traum Schallplatten contains 10 unreleased pieces of ambient music. It will also feature 7 bonus remixes by artists from the Traum universe. Here is the full tracklist:
We Fly To The End Of The World
So Many Ways
Where Are You?
Circles Of Thought
Bloom (Oliver Schories Remix)
Why We Fly To The End Of The World (Van Bonn’s „Valhalla“ Remix)
So Many Ways (Clawz SG Remix)
Where Are You? (Aparde Remix)
Wall City (Dovim Remix)
So Many Ways (Eitan Reiter Remix)
Lonely Prophet (Mario Hammer And The Lonely Robot Remix)
I have posted releases on Traum before, in my opinion this is a perfect match. Both being from Cologne I am actually wondering that they haven’t worked together before.
It was about time do make some tracks with my friend Frank Wirth aka Accentbuster again. It started out this summer when he made “Destination 313” as Accent B which I really liked and instantly remixed. Some time later he did another track called Rotten Industries Inc and together me made the Acid track “Fisher Body Plant 21”. So here we are with a 4 track detroitish techno ep with a light acid flavour to be released on Hypnohouse Trax on March 6th 2017.
Since the kids seem to do that nowadays I also uploaded it to YouTube.
Hailing from Munich where he grew up under the Swedish and German techno influence. Snitch is based in Berlin now, who still works with hardware musical gear only and follows his roots of turning experiments and noises into sensible techno music.
Skalen EP consists of sleek, functional but no-nonsense techno variations from Snitch. Leading with Skalen – a deadly, serrated tool fashioned to carve up the hardest of dance floors and takes you through the tunnel without a torch.
Kromag displays a bit more of the swing that this producer does so well adding darker atmosphere to a killer effective techno banger. The EP rounds up with a terrific Laiva remix of Kromag. Laiva was discovered in the Eastern town of Kuhmo and made an appearance on WaveReform before with a killer T#16 record. He makes it all about dub-scuffed kicks here and pulsating bleeps throughout his version of ruthlessly straightforward, point-blank attack for the 48-hour-party people.
After his epic contribution to the Transmission series in spring Soma is proud to present the debut solo EP from the mysterious SLV. Characterised by tough, sub heavy percussion joined by melodic elements, SLV has crafted a very unique, mature sound in a short space of time and with Satellite he further explores the realms of deep, emotive Techno.
The sounds seem kind of familiar to me but to be honest I can’t tell who might be behind the SLV alias. But does it matter anyway as long as the sound is right?
