New Munk EP on Correspondant Records

Mr. Munk has been doing a lot of new music recently. Two new EPs will come out on labels of our friends.
The first one just got released on Jennifer Cardini’s great Correspondant label. It’s called „The Wurlitzer Wank“ and includes two new tracks and a remix by Secret Circuit (Beats in Space).
It’s not the first time Munk works with the parisian scene. Already on the first Munk album „Aperitivo“ (2004) he worked with DJ Chloe. Later there were Munk collabos with the Ed Banger crew, I’m A Cliche and other people from the parisian scene. So this new collabo made totally sense in the Munk history.

Get it on Beatport

The next Munk thing will come out on Local Talk in december.

Gomma Podcast #122 – Munk Spring Mix

Mr. Munk has been very busy over the last months. Mostly by touring the world after the release of his last album CHANSON 3000, putting together the new Gomma compilation POP FUTURO (out in spring) and producing new music. Now he found the time to do a new mixtape. This spring mix includes some unreleased Gomma material (Check the wonderful opening track: Nils Penner’s remix for Hotlane) and music that he loves to play in his current DJ sets.
Of course the mixtape is a bit sweeter than his club mixes, but that’s one of the things that make Munk mixtapes so interesting: They are unpredictable – Go with the flow.

Tracklist:
1 Hotlane – My Favourite Habit (Nils Penner Remix)
2 Art Alfie – Easy to Love
3 Coeo – Native Riddim
4 Donnie – Olmec Save Us
5 Jad & The Ladyboy – Namibian Gold
6 Verdo – Simba
7 PBR Streetgang – Move On (Kian T Remix)
8 Jack J – Take It To The Edge
9 Junior & Baumon – Don’t Listen Much
10 Bosq – Bad For Me (Soul Clap Remix)
11 Hess Is More – Primate (Munk Edit)
12 Munk vs Daniel Avery – Kitchen Call
13 Capri – Earth Wind & Magic
14 Savoir – Eternal (Harvey Sutherland Remix)
15 Alixander III – Something About Me
16 Munk – Cartoon

Munk – Deceiver (Gomma206)

The new Munk album Chanson 3000 has just been released.
Music press and blogs are writing euphoric reviews.
“Brilliant”, “A work of absolute beauty” ,”Weird, but beautful electronic pop” are just a few description from the UK press.

“Deceiver” is the new single. A mellow mid-tempo song – based on a strange, but driving, bass-heavy electronic beat, nasty synthlines and the absolute stunning voice of Lizzie Paige – the young American singer that performs all songs on the new Munk album along with London born vocalist Mona Lazette.

The new single comes along with a great video by Milan based directors PROJ3CTSTUDIO. And remixes by PURPLE DISCO MACHINE (Exploited), new German producer genius LCAW and a country house version by Mr Munk himself.
