Tartelet Records proudly presents Wareiika : Formation Starting with ep’s for well-known quality labels such as Eskimo Recordings, Future Classic, Liebe/Deatil, Motivbank or Connaisseur, and providing something special for compilations like Satoshi Tomiie’s famous “Renaissance", Wareika’s work has inspired people around the world who like to listen closely. Like Ricardo Villalobos, who contributed a remix to their jazz-meets-techno epos “King’s Child", lately compared to St.Germains greatest moments and recently released on Motivbank. To live up the Danish-German relationship, Hamburg City based Wareika now bring their overview of outstanding musical pieces to Tartelet Records, who already have spreaded some stunning tracks to introduce the Album: “ASCENDING/DESCANDING", a trip to the world of 7/8 rhythms, never the less keeping your feet in movement, and the way-down-to-africa 5/4 groove caravan “BARACUDA", a fish able to swim in the sand. Throughout the album, Jakob Seidensticker, Florian Schirmacher and Henrik Raabe are creating a FORMATION back to back as a band, constantly developing their musical approach.So they picked up some field recordings, or solo piano interludes, or even did special album versions. As well “MEN VILLAGE” in a live version, “ONE NATION” in a special album version, and of course the rare 10 minutes jazzistic improvisation on “RIDER’S ON THE STORM” give this Album the intimate feeling of having an eclectic ensemble playing for you, be it in your living room, or on a festival stage, like the smasher “BURNIN’” implies, that comes with a GusGus remix included. Programmed electronics, human voices and the feeling of touching instruments with your ears mingle in this groove that makes you wanna dance in a circle around a campfire called “FACING THE SUN". This vibe of being alive is now making friends worldwide, and in Radiostations, Blogs, Clubs and Home stereos the band’s language can be understood by anyone who is willing to open up their e

interesting..what else did i expect..the 3 are always surprising me with great ideas..
my faves are beloning and burning...
big up!


clips sound lovely.. need more time to digest.

Radio - pulseradio.net // Australia

Very nice.



Magazine - Lodown // Forty

Seriously, this actually might be one of the most interesting German bands in 2010...


Interesting music - in writing and production. But i dont think the vocals are good enough for the rest.

Belonging and Ascending/Descending are still the best tracks.

(By the way - didnt u make an error in the tracktitels? Maybe track 2 and 3 are switched?)

Love doors, amazing "Riders Of The Storm" !!!!

This release is ART!


I really find this album so boring.. It reminds me of what Luciano is shamely doing since 5 years. Talking huge sample (from good music I give them that..) and then put some badly produced minimal fake congos and all this shit.. I mean.. how'bout actually PLAYING the shit?? with real instruments and make REAL originals???? and if you cant play any instruments.. hire some motherfuckers to do so!!!!!

Laurent Garnier

realy like this ep , will present it on my radio show
