Out now: Munk – The Bolero Bunuel EP

The last two Munk releases (on Correspondant and Local Talk) already showed the new side of Mathias Modica’s musical output.
Instrumental, hypnotic, yet funky and tribal mid tempo tracks with almost no vocals.
Now Mr. Munk takes it a few steps further. He is flying his Techno into a Sun Ra Space. „The Bolero Bunuel“ is based on a jazzfunk bassline and some live drumming. The melodies remind of some strange arabian sci-fi things. „The Naked Baam“ reminds of the first Motorbass tracks, back from Paris 1995. Filterfunk! „The Oboe Onyx“ – Boards of Canada could have been somewhere in the studio when this was made. The beat is weird… not quantized. The classical instruments and melodic lines remind of some compositions of late Ligeti or P‰rt. This new Munk EP comes out with Remixes from Lauer and Red Axes.

Barotti x Ralf Schmerberg x 032C

German director Ralf Schmerberg teamed up with Berlin’s 032C magazine for a mini-movie. Shot at different iconic locations in Berlin. Based on music by Gomma artist Barotti. Taken from his album “Rising” (2015).

In celebration of its 30th issue, 032c and artist-director Ralf Schmerberg created the 78 pages magazine story “An Innocent Mind Has No Fear” and a short film based on a fictional unwritten script for the ultimate Berlin film. An atmospheric trip through dark spaces and mysterious shades of current realities of the German capital.

See also Ralf Schmerberg’s exhibition of photographs, production notes, screen takes, and objects, on show now in the 032c Workshop vitrine at St Agnes in Berlin-Kreuzberg.

New on Toy Tonics: Black Loops – Cassette EP

Here comes a new Toy Tonics EP by Black Loops including remixes by munich based COEO and Neovinyl’s Carlo. They go smooth this time. Rhodes pianos, some jazzy chords, a rolling beat.
The two guys know how to make a swinging loop. And they got style. No wonder as one is a funk drummer – Riccardo – who lives in Berlin and the other – Gabriele – makes his money as a photographer living in Milan. Every two months they meet in Riccardo’s studio space in Berlin Kreuzberg and jam for a few nights and days. Doing new tracks, mixtapes, loops. Djing in local bars and clubs.

Barotti – Never Talk Again (Video)

Clipboard01

Berlin based performance artist and musican Marco Barotti comes with a new video. If you didn’t have the chance to hear his album from last year (Barotti: Rising LP) now you get a wonderful reminder. Never Talk Again is a song, or better, an opus magnus of electronic – avantgardism. Straight out of Barotti’s phantastic mind. Recorded with an orchestra of strings and horns and the sound of some vintage sinths from the 1970ies. All made in Marocco in long jam sessions. Then edited and reworked in Berlin.
The video for Never Talk Again was shot by Camilla Mantovani.

On this first 4 track EP you get new music from ALIEN ALIEN aka Italian producers Rodion & Hugo Sanchez with an Detroit techno kind of track with mushroomey space voices that drive a dancefloor crazy. (Alien Alien previously released on Turbo, Nein, Slow Motion, Gomma). Then Australian surfer kids and house producers JAD & THE LADYBOY doing a afro heavy old school MPC house jam. (Jad released also records on Exploited and Toy Tonics). Gomma boss MUNK is featured with the high in demand Rebolledo Version of SURF SMURF and as a bonus track you get the legendary DJ KOZE remix of WHOMADEWHO’s Keep me in my plane. Releases some years ago, three times repressed and sold out. Sounding now fresher then ever.
