MUNK Show on Gilles Peterson’ WORLWIDE FM

Worldwide FM invited Mathias do do a radioshow. They wanted him to play only Gomma, Toy Tonics and Kryptox (our new label) releases.
The show was on air last friday. You can listen to it here online. The funny thing: They call him „the Wes Andersons of electronic music“. Not bad :)

New Munk Song for German compilation

FullSizeRender_s

Mr. Munk hasn’t released anything since his last EP on parisian label Correspondant two years ago. He only co-produced records for Toy Tonics artists (and is working on a Neo-Jazz/ Kraut solo album). But he also teamed up with Paul Pötsch. Frontman of leading German indierock band Trümmer. Together they are working on a couple of German indiedisco songs. Great stuff in the making.

As a little appetizer they made a freaky track called “UFO” for the “KEINE BEWEGUNG 2″ compilation of Berlin label STAATSAKT.
A compilation that portraits the new German No Wave, Punkfunk and Indiedisco scene. There is a lot happening in the german underground. Great stuff.
PÖTSCH & MUNK will have more in 2018. #MakeGermanDiscoGreatAgain

gomma disco jams ep 1 Artwork v2

Disco champs James Murphy – Munk – Nick Siano – Dimitri from Paris on one EP!
Why? Because it’s 2017 and Disco is infiltrating the electronic music world again. So it makes sense to put the spotlight on a few essential tracks that preceeded the new Disco wave.

Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca – Erodiscotique EP4

dimitri-labels-1_m

DIMITRI FROM PARIS and his brother in crime DJ ROCCA come back to Gomma with a new 3 track EP. His fourth release on Gomma. For those who are too young to know: Dimitri is a legend! You can put him in a row with old school wildstyle disco heroes like DJ Harvey, Baldelli or Francois K.

He has been doing consistently good music over the last 20 years. From his „A Night at the Playboy Mansion“ compilations to his own tracks, his always inspiring DJ sets and most of all: his never disappointing edits: his rework of Prince: „I Wanna Be Your Lover“ must be one of the most hammered edits of the last 10 years.

Dimitri comes from the Parisian school of Disco. He first appeared to the bigger public with his debut album „Sacrebleu“ in 1996. Coming along with the first French house wave (St.Germain, Super Discount, Daft Punk…) – he quickly became a worldwide respected DJ with a very own personal touch. He officially remixed artists like Bjork, New Order, Chic and even – officially – Michael Jackson. In 2005 he produced the album “Super Pop Venezuela“ for Los Amigos Invisibles which grabbed a nomination for a Grammy Award.
Let’s put it like this: Probably there is not one DJ with taste that hasn’t got his personal favorite Dimitri From Paris track in his bag.

Some years ago Dimitri teamed up with Italian producer, DJ and man of many talents DJ Rocca. Rocca might be known to many for his work as Ajello and Crimea X. Among the many names he produced music for he also made tracks with cosmic disco innovator DJ Baldelli. When Rocca and Dimitri are in the studio together, they somehow have a magic touch. Simple, yet effective, heavy disco influenced but never retro sounding little pearls they produce.
Glamorous as ever. Nasty as always.
