Press Info:
2014 had a flying start with Radial‘s 2nd album and the first release of his new imprint Radial Records. ‚Crux‘ received massive support from the public, dj‘s and press, and now we present you a package of gorgeous remixes by some of the strongest players in techno music today, combined with fine remix work by some highly talented producers from Holland.

First up is Anton Pieete who has just released a very strong 2×12”on Rejected. He brings us back to the basics of ‚Karplus‘ with a stripped-back but heavy approach with only one thing in mind: the dance floor. Patrik Skoog needs no introduction of course and his funky but chunky mix of ‚Fifth Wheel‘ will leave no one sitting still, Patrik at his best!

On the flip side it‘s Darko Esser a.k.a. Tripeo taking control. He has delivered two amazing remixes both under his Tripeo alias and his own name. Enriching the original tracks with some signature leads.

Three digital-only bonus remixes finish off this release in style. Some lesser known names but the results are all the more interesting. Shadowboxer who also forms ‚Sinecure‘ together with Radial brings us a bass heavy remix with noisy stabs and metallic hats. Colophon chooses a more trippy approach all built on the warmth of an organic and evolving bass line. Finally we welcome back an old friend and former member of Radial: Boyconstrictor with his fast-paced version of ‚Tipsy‘.

Press Info (English):
Schlammpeitziger – “What’s Fruit”
With his new album “What’s Fruit”, Schlammpeitziger touches the dancefloor more than ever before in his 22-year long career. Yet his dancefloor is a playful one. The Cologne based composer’s sounds electrify with their multi-layered melodic structures. He weaves countless details in perfection, to a high density of musical activity, always focusing on the slow, driving beats which hold everything together. Each of the eight tracks represents shades of the unique humour we love about Schlammpeitziger: The tricky question about what’s those things we call fruit, or his mantric German lyrics on “Schneid ein Stück aus der Zeit” are charming messages which never fail to be heard in the guise of those lovely synth hooks.

This new Schlammpeitziger disco has its source in a situation which does not quite promise relaxed creativity: In the past year Schlammpeitziger’s studio in Cologne has been surrounded by construction works. Locked up in his private space between massive hums, squealing saws and pulsating jackhammers, he delivers this indeed relaxed album with eight tracks. It comes across with the freshness of a debut work.

Contrary to his previous records which had been mostly made with analogue synths, this album has been produced with iPad synths at 90% of the time, before taking the mixes to Stefan Mohr’s (exmember of the band “Workshop”) mixing console.

It is the first time for Schlammpeitziger to release a record outside of his Cologne based home labels A-Musik and Sonig. This time the musician, drawer and charismatic performer appears on the Pingipung imprint from Hamburg. He had been in touch with the label for years and has also been a regular guest in the Golden Pudel Club. A lot has happened since Jo Zimmermann invented the Schlammpeitziger character in 1992. Artists like Depeche Mode, The Bionaut, Barbara Morgenstern or Egoexpress have asked for remixes and he has played countless international stages. His many albums and CDs have even been compiled to “Collected Simple Songs Of My Temporary Past“ by the Domino label (UK), Thrill Jockey (US) and Tokuma (Japan) in 2001.

Pingipung will release a Remix EP to „What?s Fruit?“ on Nov. 24th 2014, with remixes by Andreas Dorau, Candie Hank, Mouse On Mars, Hey-O-Hansen, Springintgut and Thomas Mahmoud. Schlammpeitziger will present the album live in Hamburg (Oct 10th, Thalia Nachtasyl) and Cologne (Oct 17th, King Georg). He will be joined on stage by Andreas Dorau and Candie Hank. The Berlin presentation will take place as a part of the two-day event celebrating 21 years of Mouse On Mars, on Oct 31st at Hebbel am Ufer.

 

Press Info (German):
Schlammpeitziger – “What’s Fruit”
Jo Zimmermann alias Schlammpeitziger lädt uns drei Jahre nach seinem letzten Release endlich wieder in sein heimisches Doppelboden-Musikzimmer und veröffentlicht am 13. Oktober 2014 sein neustes Album „What’s Fruit?“. Sind seine Sound-Bretter erst einmal durchbrochen fühlt sich die Hörerschaft wie Alice im berüchtigten Kaninchenbau und genießt den Tiefgang im freien Flug. Die bis zur Perfektion verwobenen, vorbei sausenden Klangstrukturen des altehrwürdigen Elektro-Künstlers aus Köln überzeugen nicht nur durch mitreißende Beats, sondern auch durch behutsam gesetzten Humor. Und ja, entstanden ist die Platte „What’s Fruit?“ zwar nach wie vor per Homerecording – jedoch umgab Jo Zimmermann während der einjährigen Produktionsphase eine heftige Ausnahmesituation: Baulärm-Beschallungen von allen Seiten, oben, unten, rechts, links. Das Sounddesign hat definitiv etwas Beton und Wummern eingeatmet, gestaltet sich aber trotzdem anschmiegsam und wenig sperrig. Es scheint, als wollte Jo Zimmermann seinem damals strapazierenden Klangumfeld etwas betont Konträres entgegen setzen und erschuf so seine ganz eigene, abgekapselte Schlammpeitziger-Disco als Strategie, um nicht dem Wahnsinn anheimzufallen. Eingeigelt wie in einen Kokon aus brachialem Gebrumme, laut schreienden Sägen und pulsierendem Luftdruckgehämmer entpuppt sich letztlich ein sehr entspannter Release mit der Frische und Unverfrorenheit eines Debütalbums aus acht runden Tracks. Im Gegensatz zu frühen Platten, die ausschließlich mit Analogsynthesizern auskamen, produzierte Schlammpeitziger „What’s Fruit?“ zu 90% mit dem iPad und er kommt mit Stücken wie „Balcony Sofaune“ oder seinem Titeltrack dem Tanzflur auf sutsche Weise näher als je zuvor.

Am 24. November 2014 erscheint zu „What’s Fruit?“ eine EP mit Remixen von Andreas Dorau, Candie Hank, Mouse On Mars, Hey-O-Hansen, Springintgut und Thomas Mahmoud. Außerdem wird es in Köln (17. Oktober, King Georg) und Hamburg (10. Oktober, Thalia Nachtasyl) je eine Release-Party zur Platte geben. In Berlin wird die Platte erstmals während der zweitägigen 21-Jahre-Mouse-On-Mars-Feier am 31. Oktober im Hebbel am Ufer vorgestellt.

Pingipung
Wenn Menschen über Pingipung sprechen, beschreiben sie den Output des unermüdlichen Labels häufig als Ü-Musik: eine Mischung aus U- und E-Musik. Ü, wie Überraschung. Denn eine weite Klammer von Elektronika mit Techno-Einflüssen bis Jazz und Pop umfasst den Pingipung Katalog. Der instrumentale, handgemachte Ansatz in der Produktion elektronischer Sounds ist hierbei das Markenzeichen des Labels. Anfangs stammten die Release hauptsächlich aus dem Electronica-Genre, mittlerweile ist das Portfolio sehr viel breiter und weltweit aufgestellt. Im Roster tummeln sich Acts aus London, Russland, Schweden oder USA. Das heute von Frankfurt und Hamburg aus agierende Label wurde 2002 in Lüneburg von Nils Dittbrenner, Andi Otto, Markus Engel und Heiko Gogolin während des Studiums der Kulturwissenschaften gegründet. Mittlerweile sind außerdem Andrea Wienck und Sebastian Kokus mit an Bord. Pingipung-Veröffentlichungen erscheinen in den unterschiedlichsten Vinyl-Formaten, als CDs oder Downloads. Kompakt und A-Musik stellen die Platten weltweit in die Läden und Morr Music sorgt dafür, dass die Digital-Downloads im Web verfügbar sind.

Hector Oaks

 

Title:

Format:

Tracklist:
A1)
Our Way Of Escape

A2)
New Beginning

B1
Internal Disorder

B2)
Splitted Mind

 

Press Info:
KEY Records have a knack for talent-spotting. Over its short history the label, headed by underground advocate Freddy K, has plucked early releases from the likes of Conrad Van Orton and Shapednoise, whilst drawing attention to the insightful sounds of upstarts PVS and Hector Oaks on it’s most recent release, ‘Knife’. Now comes Hector Oaks’ frst full EP for Key, which sees the Madrid-native deliver a cool set of functional foor works, designed with just one thing in mind.

Taking cues from classic Detroit and contemporary Berlin, this four-tracker jumps straight in with “Our Way Of Escape”. The ring of bells and urgent tones are then sunk into a low and bassy groove on “New Beginning”, plied here and there with charged surges to make this a much more heady afair. On the B-side “Internal Disorder” heads even deeper into basement techno territory with thick, distempered atmospherics and dissonant rattles. Finally, “Splitted Mind” delivers a melting pot of caustic noise, albeit kept at a restrained and hypnotic simmer. All in all it’s safe to say we’ve not seen the last of Hector Oaks.

Press Info:
It was early 2007 when Inigo Kennedy inaugurated Token. Since that Identify Yourself 12” the Belgian label has gone from strength to strength, integrating both Kennedy and Ashley Burchett, aka Ø [Phase], into becoming integral cogs in the Token machine. In between releases by Grovskopa, Oscar Mulero and Go Hiyama, both Ø [Phase] and Inigo Kennedy dominated Token’s output, but it wasn’t until Burchett’s watershed Binary Opposition that Token received the shower of praise it deserved. Following this, label founder Kr!z issued three remix 12”s of that release which, including Token regulars, took in a profound cast of producers to reprocess “Binary Opposition” by the way of Sigha, Peter Van Hoesen, Planetary Assault Systems and Ben Klock. It was here Token stamped their authority on contemporary techno.

Since then Token has grown exponentially, bringing into their fold artists like Xhin, Mark Broom and Rødhåd, while Ctrls, formally one half of Northern Structures, has seen his solo career flourish on Token with the release of five records to date, and he joins Inigo Kennedy and Ø [Phase] as a label stalwart.Additionally this year, Orphx and Ancient Methods debuted their relentless Eschaton collaboration on Token, and Christian Wünsch’s Spherical Coordinates dalliance with Oscar Mulero has gained even more momentum with a second release called Kinematics Equations. Now, seven years after that debut Kennedy record, Token present Aphelion, a nine-track CD and triple vinyl grandstand of new and exclusive material from label regulars and like-minded artists whom Token founder Kr!z specifically commissioned for this milestone release.

The penultimate record before Aphelion was a second Token 12” by Rødhåd, another artist adding to the cultivation of the label’s sound and roster, and for this compilation the Berliner supplies his cosmically inspired “Haumea”. Joining the Dystopian founder on Aphelion are three of the UK’s most influential techno artists: Surgeon, James Ruskin and Luke Slater under his Planetary Assault Systems alias who provide Token with solo material for the first time after previously appearing on the imprint in remix form. Entirely new names to grace the label via Aphelion include Stroboscopic Artefacts founder Lucy, and Blawan and Pariah’s Karenn project, while label faithfuls Inigo Kennedy, Ø [Phase] and Ctrls naturally commit three Token defining productions.

Casting one’s eye over Token’s back catalogue and it’s clear to see the label is a staunch advocate of absolute techno, remaining steadfast in issuing quality material that remains true to classic strands of the genre regardless of its popularity flux. In that respect, Aphelion – a word used to describe the point in orbit when a planet or comet is farthest from the sun – provides a simple analogy that the magnetic force of Token, unfazed by the shadows cast by popular opinion, will proudly shine light on their artists and given styles.

“We started in an era where our genre was very unpopular,” Kr!z explains. “And in the end that seemed a big advantage for us, because when everyone was giving up, we started our mission.” Regularly hosting label nights in prominent clubs around the world, Token has become a label supported by a wide-ranging body of artists like Âme and Ben Klock to Efdemin, Truss and Ancient Methods. With the label now branching out into album and compilation territory, Token’s duty to techno may not yet be accomplished, but it’s been a job well done.
