East to West is about horizons. Facing the sea, east or west, at dusk or dawn, it never appears the same. We talk about well known territory, the world of Move D and Benjamin Brunn. Following a number of collaborations, now for the first time the two present individual works on one record, back to back.
Lerosa takes his unique approach on house even further. Private View is exactly what its title promises: an exclusive visite into a enigmatic and fascinating world of groove and sound. It’s full of puzzling places and mysterious events. Delicate arrangements and artful sound combinations amount to a unique record without turning to caprice or flourish. Simplicity that makes sense.
As a resident at the Institut fuer Zukunft in Leipzig Perm obviously found the perfect place to deepen his distinguished sound. It seems he made it his mission to show how far away from droned out repetition and redundance Techno can be. In this particular case it merely is a guideline for a dynamic tour de force. From a laid back atmosphere with dubbed out sounds he aims towards an euphoric finale. That’s the way to go!
Idit’s set is delightful in the truest sense of word. It’s an open hand and a smile. It graps you like a good friend who doesn’t lead the way. It makes you want to move without a rush. It’s shedding a light on a good and warm feeling. Idit is kind enough to present some off her most favourite artists straight from her scene in Tel Aviv.
The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well. Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next.
- Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll
Have you ever received an unexpected present? Something really unexpected? Something like… Like a friend leaving a good book with a short note between stuff you rarely look at. Or have you ever stumbled upon an unknown but wonderful record while cleaning up the pile of those next to your stereo? Such presents take you by surprise in the best manner possible. They’re like a suddenly appearing escape hatch out of whatever it is you’re doing.
Well, this is what Marcellis’ kind of set means to us and we really need to share it with you. So, here’s your hatch. But be aware: It’s seductive to stay on the other side.
Zum vierten Geburtstag der Wake Up! Partys gibt es Familienbesuch aus Berlin und Hamburg. Die Verwandtschaft hat sich in den letzten Jahren nicht nur vergrößert, sondern auch in die Ferne erweitert. So bringen uns Moritz Dittmer und Joel Helfrich zur Eröffnung des Abends ein wenig Großstadtluft und den Groove einer Berliner Nacht mit.
Benjamin Brunn hat nicht erst mit dem Mitschnitt seines Livesets aus dem Golden Pudel für Aufmerksamkeit gesorgt. Auch seine sonstigen Produktionen auf Labels wie Workshop, Third Ear und Smallville zeugen von seiner musikalischen Eigenständigkeit und Authentizität. Zum ersten Mal seit seinem Release auf Wake Up! Records feiert er mit uns in Lüneburg. Ein passenderes Geburtstagsgeschenk an Euch und uns kann es gar nicht geben.
