About R&S Records

Without doubt one of the finest and most critically acclaimed record labels in Europe, the history of R&S stretches back to the early 1980s. Groundbreaking early releases from the likes of Aphex Twin, Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Joey Beltram and many more laid the foundations for the label’s consistently stellar global reputation as a purveyor of cutting-edge techno.

Fast-forward to today and the label’s legacy remains as strong as ever. Even despite a prolonged hiatus in the early 2000s, R&S has since repositioned itself as a more eclectic, yet equally forward-thinking outlet for some of the world’s most celebrated contemporary musicians such as James Blake, Nicolas Jaar and Nils Frahm (via his ‘Nonkeen’ project), while simultaneously retaining its original dancefloor aesthetic through uncompromising releases from the likes of Paula Temple, Blawan, Pariah and Lakker, to name but a few.

&Uuber; R&S Records

R&S Records, gegründet in den frühen 80er Jahren, zählt zu den erfolgreichsten Labels in ganz Europa. Die späten 80er und frühen 90er ohne R&S? Schwer vorstellbar. Zu den ersten Releases zählten mitunter Aphex Twin, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig oder Derrick May, die dem belgischen Traditionslabel aus Genth zu internationaler Bekanntheit verhalfen. Doch R&S war und ist nicht nur Zuhause von Techno: Und so fanden unter anderem auch James Blake, Nicolas Jaar und Nils Frahm (Nonkeen) in R&S eine Plattform für ihre Musik. Nichtsdestotrotz bleibt das Label seinen Wurzeln treu und bleibt weiterhin geprägt von hochkarätigen Vertretern des Techno wie Paula Temple, Blawan oder Lakker.

[News]: Byte FM, Berlin [030) & NovaFuture Blog present Matias Aguayo & The Desdemonas live

August 2, 2016
 

Byte FM, Berlin [030) & NovaFuture Blog present Matias Aguayo & The Desdemonas live

 

News Text (German):
Matias Aguayo, in Chile geboren und in Deutschland aufgewachsen, hat ein großes Spektrum an genreübergreifenden Arbeiten zu bieten. In welche Kategorie man seine Musik auch einordnen mag, der Ursprung seines Schaffens ist immer seine Stimme. Genauso wie in jüngeren Zeiten im Theater, wo er Regie geführt und geschauspielert hat, schlüpft Aguayo mit Hilfe seiner Stimme in verschiedene Rollen und imitiert Klänge und Geräusche um eine akustische Illusion zu erzeugen und die Grenzen zwischen Technik und Stimme zu verwischen. Er improvisiert mit verschiedenen Instrumenten und Mikrofonen und erreicht dadurch eine besondere Spontaneität auf seinen Alben, die auf seinen Auftritten von der Energie seines Publikums sogar noch verstärkt wird.

Das legendäre Kölner Techno Label Kompakt hat sich seiner angenommen und half Aguayo seine erste Soloscheibe „Are You Really Lost“ (2005), den 2009 erschienen Nachfolger „Ay Ay Ay“ und seine „Legende“ EP 2014 zu veröffentlichen.

Ständig unterwegs, um entweder Kunst- und Musikprojekte zu gründen, z.B. „Juventud Clandestina“ in Buenos Aires, oder um Underground Parties zu organisieren, wie in Köln (die ihn auch seiner „A Night At The Tilehouse“ EP, SoulJazz Records 2007 inspiriert haben), sein fast magnetisches Charisma lockt die unterschiedlichsten Freigeister, die keiner musikalischen Schule angehören und in keine Kategorie passen. Ihnen widmet er 2009 das Cómeme Projekt: ein lose organisiertes Kollektiv das verschiedenste Aktivitäten verfolgt. Es meidet traditionelle Label Tätigkeiten und beinhaltet Aguyos engen Freundeskreis und Arbeitsumfeld mit Aguayo selbst als Schnittstelle und Produzenten. Cómeme hat 2013 auch Aguyos aktuellstes Album „The Visitor“ veröffentlicht und ist in London, Köln, Santiago de Chile, Buenos Aires, Mexico City und Moskau aktiv.

Im September geht Matias Aguayo zusammen mit seiner Liveband, The Desdemonas, auf Deutschlandtour – präsentiert von Byte FM, Berlin [030) & NovaFuture Blog. Schaut immer mal rein – wir werden Tickets verlosen.

 

News Text (English):
Matias Aguayo, Chilean-born and German-raised, has made a hugely varied body of genre defying/melding work- a blend of deep shadows framed by blinding tropical sun. No matter the tag placed on his tracks, the primary focus and platform for building his music is, what he has always considered his main instrument, his voice. Calling upon his young adult background within the theatre (where he was directing, acting, and performing) Aguayo uses his voice to slip into different roles and imitate sounds to creating an aural illusion. This allows him to use a handful of machines and a microphone, to creating sonic ambiguity between vocals and instrumentation, bringing a surge of spontaneity to his recordings and intensely reactive improvisational element live sets as he feeds off the audience and layers his narratives.

Kompakt, the legendary Cologne-based techno label, has supported and released his music since his project Closer Musik (2001-2003), releasing his first solo record Are You Really Lost (2005), his second album Ay Ay Ay (2009), and continues to do so, releasing his latest EP, Legende (2014).

On his travels and tours, whether in Buenos Aires forming an arts and music project Juventud Clandestina [Clandestine Youth], or later street party happenings, or throwing underground parties in Cologne (Inspiring his A Night At The Tilehouse EP, SoulJazz Records-2007), Matias Aguayo has a magnetic personality that draws him to misfits and outsiders from all over the world that are making unique music and are free-thinking with regards to the musical process. Not one of these people would fit into a specific genre or school. He created Cómeme as a home for this motley crew.

Starting in 2009 Cómeme, is a loosely organised, yet flourishing complex of activity, that eschews traditional label strategies in favour of a collective that closely involves his friends and label-mates. Within its diverse catalogue, Cómeme has released Matias’ most recent album The Visitor (2013) and is a haven for adventurers making music as far and as near as London, Cologne, Santiago de Chile, Buenos Aires, Mexico City and Moscow.

Matias’ role in Comeme continues as a facilitator and old school style producer- using his resources and experience to help each artist to dive into their own music. He finds this is just as gratifying as working on his own releases- of which he always has many in the pipeline! It makes one wonder how Matias Aguayo finds time… If this was a job, then it would seem impossible, but Matias Aguayo’s work and career is instead a byproduct of his life and imagination- wrought with creative visions that make his efforts fantastical, as well as possible.

In September Matias Aguayo and his live band The Desdemonas will tour in Germany presented by Byte FM, Berlin [030) & NovaFuture Blog. Stay tuned for some free tickets!

News Text:
At the end of February and beginning of March Mute founder Daniel Miller attended a few events in the USA incl. LA Modular 2016. He took the opportunity to meet the guys from Depeche Mode who just announced a few weeks ago that they will record another album.

Just ahead of his talk at Superbooth16 in Berlin tonight, Daniel Miller confirmed in a short statement that he will be involved in the production of the new Depeche Mode and be in charge as producer for 2 tracks. He also said there will be an announcement at the end of April telling the fans who else will be part of the production team.

Update: yeah you’re right. Unfortunately just a dream or April’s Fool. But you never know.. just see our April’s Fool last year about MG’s remix EP. It really happened.

[News]: Killekill splits into several labels

March 9, 2016
 

Killekill splits into several sublabels

 

News Text:
Berlin-based Killekill label run by DJ Flush has reached its 25th release – with the upcoming release of the compilation Killekill Megahits II.

This release also marks turning the page to the next chapter of their story. Up until today Killekill has been home to talented musicians in a wide array of sub-genres in electronic music: techno, electro, acid, and house.

‘Killekill Megahits II’ brings together the Killekill family for one last release with a collection of killer tracks representative of the labels forward thinking vision to celebrate the end of an era, as Killekill will now branch off into multiple sub-labels to continue to deliver quality music in the most suitable outfit for it.

New labels will be divided into LPs, club sounds, Nov29Films, and queer, all familiar to the labels exisitng creativity. From now on the Killekill name itself will continue on as an organization, a posse organizing parties in Berlin and abroad.
