Prosumer and Murat Tepeli - Serenity : : .

Artist: Prosumer and Murat Tepeli
Title: Serenity
Released: Jan. 2008
Format: Unmixed Audio CD, 192 kbps / 44,1kHz
Label: Compost Records
Genre: House, Deep House, Vocal Minimal


PROSUMER AND MURAT TAPELI - SERENITY (2008)

Ostgut is a rare breed among techno imprints - it consistently manages to turn out excellent albums. This much anticipated collaboration between Prosumer and Murat Tepeli has already been the subject of much critical attention and follows on from the excellent single "Turn Around" released a couple of weeks back.
Featuring the occasional vocal contribution from Elif Bicer and Prosumer himself, the album opens with the velveteen lounge stylings of "Serenity" - setting the pace and the mood for much of what follows. The album hits its best stride with the instrumental version of "Believe" - a brilliantly executed exercise in layered House reduction with an emotive Fender Rhodes underlay that works a treat.

"Latenight" is also brilliant - a beautifully spacious bassline cut that revolves around shimmering keys and nifty warehouse-style percussion that works a treat. "Devotion", meanwhile, is a slowed down House number that just oozes grace and sophistication, in the best possible sense.
Lovely stuff - and highly recommended!

NuGroove Vol. 09 - E*Rock : : .

This episode features E*Rock, the musician and artist who co-founded the record label Audio Dregs with his brother nearly 10 years ago. In that time he has not only become one of experimental electronic music's most important figures but also generously contributed many, many songs to early soundtracks of Cool Hunting's videos. If you were watching back then and liked the melodic sounds you heard, Audio Dregs was probably responsible for them.

In this video, we visit him in his Portland home and studio, look at some of the album covers he designed, check out a zine he publishes, watch a few flash-based videos he directed and go on a bike ride. He also shares an unreleased track and weighs-in on headphone music, using digital tools and running a record label like an art collective.

NuGroove Vol. 08 - Matthew Dear : : .

M ss ng p eces recently traveled to Michigan to spend a few days with Texas-born musician Matthew Dear (aka Audion) before his first-ever live band performance. In between rehearsals for the show, we stroll down train tracks and do a little fishing as he shares insight into his music making process and the current culture of electronic music.

His new album Asa Breed is set to drop worldwide since 5 June 2007 off Ghostly International. Some are already calling it "the crossover album of the year."

V.A - Triple R, Selection 06 : : .

Artist: V.A
Title: Triple R, Selection 06
Released: Jan. 2008
Format: Mixed Audio CD, 192 kbps / 44,1kHz
Label: Trapez Records
Genre: Techno , Minimal


V.A - TRIPLE R, SELECTION 06 (2008)

Riley Reinhold (Triple R) and his handful of labels, Trapez, Trapez Ltd, My Best Friend and Traum, seemed to spend most of 2007 on the ropes ready to go down. Beginning with last year’ Selection 5 mix, things weren’t looking so good, with a slew of indifferent, rather than overtly negative reviews raining in just when it seemed the crowd were at last baying for minimal. So despite pioneering and supporting the minimal sound over the years, Reinhold’s quorum of labels seemed to have arrived off the boat too early and were taking it on the chin more than most.

Selection 6 is minimal yes, but also with an occasional subtle neo-trance edge at times in both the mixing, to play off the pressure changes, and also at the core of many tracks. The result is a more driving and consciously psychedelic sound that is less rigid than straighter minimal, particularly in the opening half. Salvatore Freda & Massimo Stefanelli’s ‘Endless Ride’, one of the more neo-trance cuts, is one of the sets highlights, while the complicated arrangement of Mihalis Safras’ ‘R2’ has enough oomph to enough to lift itself to a dizzy peak. And just when you think a sterile glitch mood could take over, Reggy Von Oers’ ‘Metza’ slowly turns the mix all light headed and dazzling, while Safra’s unreleased mix of Alex Under’s ‘Trapezones Erectors’ is less trance, but certainly beefy, banging and playful.

Tracklist:
01. Riley Reinhold - Secret History
02. Bülent Gürler - Koala
03. SLG - Earthworm
04. Reggy Von Oers - Cytric

Label: Shayan Music
Genre: House, Deep House


V.A - VIC MUSIC CHAPTER ONE, BEAUTIFUL & TIMELESS

All four label nights in Cologne's Vic bar have been a big success. The parties were packed with beautiful people, we had gorgeous music by international DJs, lovely drinks and a big pile of fun. Thanks to all the guys that made this possible: René, Luis, Benji (our percussion player), Aleks, Jadro, Kai & the Vic bar team and finally you! Oh, not to forget the Cooccer for providing his Powerbook for the Soda Inc. gig in the Vic.

As a result, Shayan-music and Pesto have compiled the first Vic music sampler. Picking the pearls of the catalogues of both labels, we created an acoustic souvenir of the Vic - if you ever come to visit the bar, this will be an original artefact to take home.

Trus'me - Working Nights : : .

Artist: Trus'me
Title: Working Nights
Released: Jan. 2008
Format: Unmixed Audio CD, 192 kbps / 44,1kHz
Label: Prime Numbers/FatCity Records
Genre: Funk, Nu Soul, Trip-Hop, House


TRUS'ME - WORKING NIGHTS

Trusme's debut LP finally drops, and we have been loving it here at Piccadilly HQ. Since his first EP dropped we knew something special was afoot, and here are the fruits of the last two years labour. From the outset it is easy to spot the influences, mainly detroit house music, 70's soul, disco, jazz and funk. So what you get here is a double album of late night soul edged dance music deftly created from snippets and sections of long forgotten gems which are twisted and turned into modern day masterpieces for the sweaty dancefloor on a Saturday night. Top stuff and putting Manchester back on the map once again.

This 9 tracks (8 1/2...) set features three of the hard to find Love4Music black label 12"s that shot Trusme to notoriety in early 2007. Five previously unreleased gems sit alongside firm favourites such as 'W.A.R.', 'At the Disco' and a new version of the house behemoth 'Nards' (on the 'Browns' 12"), entitled 'Narda'. Manchester has their own Moodymann!! Recommended!

Tracklist:
01.- Trus'me - Introducing (2:24)
02.- Trus'me - Drilling (5:54)
03.- Trus'me - At The Disco (3:25)
04.- Trus'me - Working Nights (6:34)
05.- Trus'me - Shakea Body (6:16)
06.- Trus'me - W.A.R. (11:45)

NuGroove Vol. 06 - Matthew Herbert : : .

Matthew Herbert, one of the U.K.'s most lauded, often overlooked and hardest-to-categorize electronic musicians grabbed major attention with the release of Scale (2006), a critically-acclaimed album that includes over 700 samples of ambient noises like birds, gas pumps, breakfast cereal, coffins, mobile phones and babies crying, as well as voice mails left on "Herbert's Hotline," a phone he set up for the project.

Cool Hunting Video's 61st episode shows Herbert making field recordings inside caves and up in a hot air balloon, among other unconventional locales, sits down with the innovator in NYC for an interview and catches his live show at Irving Plaza. We also get DJ and BBC Radio 1 host Gilles Peterson's take on his fellow countryman, as well as some words from Maurice Bernstein, co-founder of the New York dance party turned label and PR firm, Giant Step. The result is an exclusive look at one of the most influential musicians of today and his idiosyncratic approach—in the studio, knee-deep in the ocean and live on stage—to making music.

NuGroove Vol. 04 - Brazilian Girls : : .

On the heels of last week's Brazilian Girls that marks their latest album's release. Crossing multiple genres, representing a mutli-culti mix of ethnicities and with lyrics in five different languages, the New York-based band resists easy definition.

Since 2006, Cool Hunting Video has followed the quartet to the studio, caught live shows, and visited backstage, capturing candid, behind-the-scenes moments with the burgeoning group. The resulting video is a portrait of a band that's as eclectic as the musicians themselves. Like always, but especially for this installment, headphone use is recommended.

Jazzanova - Neu Jazz, Compiled By : : .

Artist: Jazzanova / V.A
Title: Neu Jazz, Compiled By
Released: Jan. 2008
Format: Unmixed Audio CD, 192 kbps / 44,1kHz
Label: Sonar Kollektiv Records
Genre: Jazz, Nu Jazz


JAZZANOVA - NEU JAZZ, COMPILED BY

Jazzanova explore an emerging scene of club Jazz music with their latest compilation Neujazz featuring the stars of this new movement.

All of the tracks on this CD are made by artists who have managed to bring jazz music into the club scene, rocking capacity audiences and winning fans all over the world. For those of you who ask yourselves whatever happened to that much hyped genre that emerged as the big cool thing in the late 90s "nujazz", just like "post rock", the term never really had any relevance - innovation is a natural development in the evolution of any music and the DJs and musicians who earned the title nujazz never lost their love for this sound. Indeed, they have kept on producing, evolving and playing their own style of music in the only way they see fit so that today the jazz scene is stronger in clubs than it ever was.

Neujazz reflects the state of the art in contemporary jazz. Each track is carefully selected and compiled by the Jazzanova A+R team at Sonar Kollektiv. Just as they can rock any club when it comes to their turn to DJ, Jazzanova are masters in the art of putting together a functional compilation. Its all about flow and timing and they have hit the nail on the head with their latest compilation.

Tracklist:
01. Christian Prommer´s DrumLesson - Elle (3:51)
02. Banks of 4 - Queen of Crows (5:57)

NuGroove Vol. 02 - Quantic : : .

Second episode of Nugroove, Electronic Culture.
Known for deftly blending a wide range of multi-ethnic sounds, calling Brighton-based DJ Quantic a consummate crate-digger is almost an understatement. With that in mind and with the impending North American release of the 26 year-old's fourth solo album, An Announcement to Answer, we tagged along with Quantic on a recent visit to a Brooklyn record store.


There and in an interview, he shared some tips and gave us a little insight into his current collecting habits, which naturally show up on An Announcement. The disc—a laid-back journey through jazz, funk, hip hop, and soul—are what you'd expect from a musician who's traveled throughout Africa and Puerto Rico, creating and recording much of his album on the road. From playful beats laced with trumpet samples and warm guitar loops to guest appearances by labelmate Ohmega Watts and LA-based chanteuse Noelle Scaggs, the eclectic lineup is well-balanced, never boring, and plenty lively.

Enjoy it.

NuGroove Vol. 01 - Arnold & Ellis : : .

Welcome to the first episode of Nugroove, Electronic Culture (a original production of CoolHunting web site) an exploration of musicians who are able to expand both what we hear and think.

This episode focuses on two critically acclaimed Detroit musicians; Jeremy Ellis and John Arnold. Ellis and Arnold have been playing together in an experimental live electronic format for over a decade.
On Friday 24 March 2006, during the Winter Music Conference week in Miami, Arnold and Ellis performed an eclectic set of sounds that touched nearly every style and taste—in one improvised set they manifested a sonic tour through jazz, soul and funk to latin, rock, techno, electro, breaks and hip hop.

The show took place as part of CO-OP MIAMI, an event organized by Goya Music and Amalgama at The District in Miami's Design District.

M.A.N.D.Y. - FABRIC 38

As owners of the hip Berlin house label Get Physical, M.A.N.D.Y have mined an aesthetic where sonic experiments meet lifestyle gloss.
Their contribution to the Fabric series opens with Yello's Bananas to the Beat, the kind of brilliant cheesy-listening move now expected of them, and proceeds along cocktail-smooth lines. From the delicate music box melody of Lucio Aquilina's My Cube to the cut-up, blissful vocals of DJ Yellow & Astrid Suryanto's To the Top, there's an irrepressible cuteness to their selections.

Fabric 38 is perhaps played a little straighter than, for example, their landmark 2006 At the Controls mix, and there are a few too many longueurs, but the closing stages - the ascending synths of Basic Soul Unit's Tunnels, the last dance disco melancholy of Lopazz's 2 Fast 4 U - are pure bliss.

A disc "subtle" and in posession of a "really nice flow" between its tracks, which should, says M.A.N.D.Y., "make you move your butt." That remains to be seen until the disc emerges in the UK and the rest of the world January 14, though it won't hit the U.S. until February 12.
