OUT NOW: LONG ARM "THE BRANCHES" DELUXE EDITION - CLEAR 2LP/GATEFOLD COVER/DIGITAL

12. December 2012Comments (2)

When listening to “The Branches“ it will stimulate diverse brain areas, creating short movies and stories in your mind’s eye. From Soviet era hand-drawn animated fairy tales in winterly forrest-landscapes to narravites of urban struggle or even classical tales in dark and gloomy basement bars – let the record spin and your mental cinema flow.

This album made it into the radio shows of Mary Anne Hobbs (XFM) as well as Gilles Peterson‘s “All Winners” show on BBC Radio 1, his personal list of favorites of the year 2011, alongside various other highly respected stations across the globe.

For the 2012 winter season we decided to give “The Branches“ a proper repress treatment, not only pressing a new batch for all our listeners that weren’t able to acquire a copy yet but also spicing it up and making it a true collectors item for anyone that already owns a copy. Therefore, the – now gatefold – artwork / transparent 2LP vinyl version, originally drawn by Bioniq was colourized by Roman Pokrovsky and, besides everything being remastered and including new work from Long Arm himself, we also added a second vinyl with various remixes by on the one hand like-minded artists like Hidden Orchestra, Dday One and 40 Winks, with whom Long Arm also shares artistic relationships and friendships, and on the other hand more genre-overarching and experimental remixes from such acclaimed artists as Robag Wruhme, Sieren, Yoko Duo, Berry Weight, Empt and Speck from CYNE, which will surely make for a unique listening experience.

You can order the vinyl version at hhv.de | Rush Hour | Crosstalk | Cargo UK | Jet Set Records | Diskunion | Jet Set Records | Juno | Boomkat and more.

Digital download at Bandcamp | Itunes | Juno | Zero Inch | Beatport | Amazon | Amazon | Boomkat | BLEEP.COM and more.

OUT NOW: WEEDY OF 40 WINKS "RETROSPECT SUITE" LTD. LP/DIGITAL

11. December 2012Comments (2)

In a repeatedly rephrased metaphor of vinyl archaeologists digging for samples and re-constructing music from tiny pieces and fractions of long lost sounds, Weedy of 40 Winks is actually a rare example of this image being executed to perfection. His puzzling way of piecing together intricate beats, rich in details, breaks and variations, is rather analogous to surrealist art than to most of his fellow contemporary beat-smiths. On top he adds his own instrumentation to perfect these compositions, being like a conservator creating mosaics of rhythms, grooves and harmonies, giving the listeners imagination ample space to wander about.

OUT NOW: PMC108 - KRTS "THE DREAD OF AN UNKNOWN EVIL" LTD. 2LP CYAN VINYL/DIGITAL

06. December 2012Comments (1)

In 2011 we saw KRTS breaking free from the boundaries of NYC’s five boroughs, releasing his first EP, Hold On, with the Berlin-based label Project: Mooncircle. The five tracks of Hold On represent the organic, heavily emotional and lively style of broken-beat, fusion jazz, boom-bap, and dubstep.

With the end of 2012 comes The Dread Of An Unknown Evil, KRTS’s first LP (limited, colored, double vinyl / uv-varnish print cover) for Project: Mooncircle. With bass-culture styles reflecting the darker side of everyday reality, the album explores themes such as fear, apprehension, doubt, angst, and sorrow, with the prevailing dread of an unknown and uncertain future—always there, peering around corners, waiting and watching. The ten tracks of The Dread Of An Unknown Evil form an intimate LP from a musician battling to make it between cities, families, loves, losses, and futures — on to the next chapter.

You can pre-order the vinyl version at hhv.de | Rush Hour | Cargo UK | Jet Set Records | Crosstalk | Juno | Boomkat and more.

Digital download at Bandcamp | Itunes | Juno | Zero Inch | Beatport | Amazon | Boomkat | BLEEP.COM and more.

Loving the album! (Thristian – Boiler Room / UK)
Damn this a wonderful LP! Beats, basslines and lovely vocals! (Simon Harrison – Basic Soul Radio / UK)
