Marko Fürstenberg - Ghosts From The Past

Sep 12, 2014 ORN032

Marko Fürstenberg – “Ghosts From The Past” In certain ever-present moments, the ghosts from the past are following us. And sometimes they do so in order to gently help us on our way. We can find this theme on Marko Fürstenberg's latest release “Ghosts From The Past”. Marko, currently living in Leipzig, has been experimenting with sound since 1999.

Rooted in classical Dubtechno, he not only knows how to interpret it, he's extending it further with his own personal aesthetic. In 2001, his first releases on a number of netlabels

Kalipo - Yaruto

Sep 12, 2014
ANTIME010LPKalipo is Jakob Häglsperger from Berlin who devotes himself to experimental electronica. His debut album Yaruto follows a series of remixes and contributions to compilations released by Antime and Stiff Little Spinners. On it, Häglsperger tries to create a both unique and timeless sound that takes cues from dance music, downbeat and Gamelan traditions alike. Making use of his wide array of analogue synthesizers, a Rhodes piano, a metallophone and guitars, Häglsperger is creating the abstract narrative of an impersonal biography by creating moods that correspond

Various Artists - Deep Love 10

Aug 27, 2014 dirtcd07“10 Years of Dirt Crew Recordings” In 2004 we started our little label and had no idea it would take these proportions. This year we celebrate our 10th anniversary. After many years of changing music styles and hypes we are very happy to be stronger as ever and still up and running with a monthly output. The best thing about all this is that Vinyl is back and we over won the Digital vs Vinyl “crisis". We even started or new sub label “S P I E L” last year that focuses on more Indie and Disco orientated music. With recent big albums fromRead the whole story

Mr Raoul K - Still Living In Slavery - The Album

Aug 27, 2014
bbmcd001'Still Living In Slavery' is Mr Raoul K's third album. It is, however, the first one that will be released on his own label 'baobab music'.  He thought for quite some time about to shift the African instruments and African rhythm structures that uses in his production processs into a more dominant, more exposed position. Giving them a role of there own and freeing them from being bound to a groove coined by a four-to-the-floor kickdrum. While using dominating drumsounds when producing records aimed for the dancefloor seemed reasonible , they weren't needed for

Right up my alley, my boulevard, my avenue, my strasse.So. Damn. Good. All three are gonna be played in every set of mine for a long time. Right up my alley, my boulevard, my avenue, my strasse. ryan crosson (vision quest) love these two separate and they make a great combo together! I prefer the bookends, Neighbors and Mennie. Thanks!!! Franco Cinelli - Nico Lahs <3, Cynosure <3! Deadbeat - bombs for days Brett Johnson - Played this last night. HEAT! Philip Sherburne - Deep, deep, deep. Digging! Konrad Black - Sickness....love 'em. Molly - Nice one !! love all tracks .. thank you Yaya - This ep is fucking good!! I love all the tracks but Neighbours is the bomb !! Thanks !! Danny Tenaglia - all good...thanks!!!! Dj Poontz - Love the deep sexy sound Blond:ish - neighbours is the bizzniss :) interplane too ... loops well too! Andrew Grant - you put smooth into Techno!!! luving the sounds Catz n Dogz - oh yes neighbours are awesome! Voigtmann - Killer Cynosure as usual! GREAT Walker Barnard - Love it! All three tracks are solid. Will be playing these tonight. Tobias Van Veen - A darker and more committed sound for Cynosure, these are clipped anthems for dancefloor denizens. "Abstract Matters" is an especially well-crafted track, containing a kind of relentless motion into the deep — it reminds me of the moving shadows that used to haunt TO's obscure BLUE label. Joel Alter - Nice warm and soft sounding! Still with power. Karotte - Mennie is great. and neighbours i cool to. love it. Nitin - Nice tracks! Mennie is the one i'm leaning towards. ”
