Artenvielfalt – Do Your Thang

Every single A&R of every shitty little label that is out there would tell their artists to pick a name that sticks. So how did Artenvielfalt happen? Take a deep breath and try to pronounce it: Artenvielfalt. Not sticky at all, but No Brainer loves them all as long as we love their music. Time to listen to ‘Do Your Thang‘ and ‘I’ll Be Good’. And on top of that the meaning of the German word Artenvielfalt takes a strong stance for diversity and acceptance of all different forms of existence. We can find that in their music, too having Ghostea (Dirty Bird) on the remix duties and delivering a reduced almost tech house ‘Dub Your Thang‘ themselves.

Tigerskin & Grambow – Looking For Mushrooms EP

Our Favorite: Red Fox – such a smoother!

Track list:
A1 – Looking for Mushrooms ft. Das Eb
A2 – Tsukiji
B1 – Octocat
B2 – Red Fox

Release Info:

Our latest “Looking for Mushrooms” EP comes to us from a collaboration between long time Dirt Crew resident Tigerskin and gifted jazz pianist and composer Grambow. We first heard from Grambow when his fluid key stylings featured on Tigerskin’s “Faint” in 2015.

The title track is a suspenseful and moody journey, lead by live double bass from feature artist “Das Eb”. Building in intensity with Tigerskin’s warm production and steady percussive instrumentation until Grambow’s live lead on a gritty synth growls in over the top. A true modern electronic classic as far as we are concernred.

“Tsukiji” is a playful deep house groover. Balmy tuned percussion and shaken highs roll along under the light hearted piano which cruises along throughout the whole tropically touched endeavour. This track has “Party” written all over it!

“Octocat” is a tougher italo disco tainted work out, tightly programmed live and analogue percussive elements push along, while wailing keys lick over a tenacious grunting bass. You can really taste and feel the long studio sessions the guys had to compose this great track. It is so much more than generic dance music.

“Red Fox” is a divine culmination of the pair’s compositional prowess and dance music knowhow. A cinematic and spirited house track that glides and glistens via delicate piano, plucky percussive riffs, bright strings and woodwinds.

SONAR – Między Wierszami (JNKP & Adam Peter Remix)

Let’s get Polish. Nice DnB track by JNKP & Adam Peter.

Original track:
More about SONAR:

some polish:

SONAR to producent Łukasz Stachurko (współtwórca RYS), perkusista Rafał Dutkiewicz, pianista Artur Bogusławski i debiutująca oficjalnie na wokalu Lena Osińska. Fascynacja trip-hopem oraz zmysłową elektroniką zaowocowała oryginalnym brzmieniem, bo ciężko klimat Sonara z czymkolwiek porównać. Wyłącznie polskie teksty (autorstwa Mateusza Holaka), żywa perkusja, doświadczony pianista, kwartet smyczkowy, kilku ciekawych gości, a przede wszystkim głos Leny to składniki albumu “Pętle”, który ukaże się 02.09.16 sumptem U Know Me Records.
