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.

Munk – The Correspondant Gomma Joints

This vinyl EP is a collaboration between Paris label Correspondant and Germany’s Gomma records.
Remixes by Los Angeles’ finest psychedelic electronic producer Secret Circuit (Beats in Space records) and German shooting star Lauer (partner of Gerd Janson of Tuff City Kids).

Why this EP?

Gomma has a long history with the Paris scene. Mathias ‘Munk‘ Modica who runs Gomma (and sublabel Toy Tonics) has been living in France for many years. He worked with many parisian artists from DJ Chloe (on Munk’s first album „Aperitivo“ 2004) to the Ed Banger Crew or Black Strobe. Probably apart of Berlin there is no city in the world that saw more Gomma events than Paris. Seems only a project with Jennifer Cardini missed. So Jennifer invited Mathias last year to send over tracks. Decision was made fast. And so „Wurlitzer Wank“ and The „Bösus Bounce“ came out on Correspondant.

The other 2 tracks will come out on Gomma digitally later this year. For now: vinyl only.

The music: You can somehow call it influenced by psychedelic ideas and the 1990ies Detroit electro funk sound of labels like red planet or Gladio. Analogue instruments, funk loops made on a MPC and weird, sick synthesizer melodies. Reminds of the early Munk productions that had no vocals.

New album: Barotti – Rising

This is not Techno! This is an Opera! (Peaches about Barotti)

Barotti’s debut album out now on Gomma. Barotti is a musician and contemporary multimedia artist based in Berlin. Doing urban sound installations, performing arts and experimental music. On his debut album Barotti is opening up a new dimension in the vast field between contemporary classical and electronic music. Armed with iconic analog gear of the 1970s, a hand-picked group of high level classical string and horn players that were recorded between Marocco and Berlin.

“Rising” stands firmly with one foot in the same mood as Woodkid and Sohn, and the other foot dipping into the past 200 years of classical music, resting in a lukewarm cocktail of Funkstörung and James Blake.

An amazing and unique work. A soundtrack full of fantastic futuristic sonic fairytales. Epic, electronic and symphonic.

New artist: BAROTTI – 1st single out now.

“This is not Techno – this is an opera!” (Peaches)
“Sounds like Woodkid jamming with Nicolas Jaar” (MAG mag)

Barotti is a much talked about multimedia artist based in Berlin. He will release his debut album on Gomma on 20th Nov. This week Gomma puts out the first two songs from the album including a remix by Massimiliano Pagliara (Ostgut Ton/Robert Johnson/Rush Hour)

Barotti has a huge buzz in the international performing-art scene. Doing sound installations and happenings at art galleries and festivals all over the world. When it comes to music this cultural multi-tasker has created an own genre of music. Working with a full orchestra, connecting the beauty of classical instruments with the sound of old analog synths. He creates magic, organic soundscapes. Mystic atmospheres, raw and glamorous at the same time.

Barotti’s music will remind you the atmosphere of Woodkid, Nils Frahm and Sohn, adding influences from the last 200 years of classical music and the distorted electronic aestheticism of Funkstörung and James Blake. The album was recorded in Casablanca and Berlin with a full orchestra.

Out now: Hess Is More – Bearsong/Primate Remixes

Hess Is More is a 7 person musician’s collective based in New York and Copenhagen around musical mastermind Mikkel Hess. They released their Gomma debut EP last June. Strange, beautiful music from outta space.

Now here come the remixes. Dimitri from Paris did an effective, supersexy disco stomper. Keeping a lot from the original version. The crazy voices, the Punk Funk feel, the moody, new wave atmosphere. But now it’s a club bomb. Then Williamsburg’s hidden underground star Lorne Dune reworked the other song. In a more edgy, distorted way. Beautiful. Then you have a version by Munich’s Pollyester. The former bass player of Munk now has gone solo. She does this kind of naive, early 80ies, powerdisco you could hear at clubs like the Loft or DJ Harvey playing. The EP also features a extra long version of the song Primate. Orgastic Hardcore Disco Rock.
