Paxton Fettel – a deeper side of house!

May 11th, 2011 // 2 Comments // Posted by Lukas

One of the new favorites on my tracklist is Paxton Fettel. He is from Copenhagen, Denmark and I found him through a lovely record label from Berlin called Falk Recordings. On his soundcloud page he writes:

When he was a kid both parents were in the music business, working at some major labels.
One night when very young, He picked up the sticks at a band rehearsal of the danish band Miss B. Haven that was the point that started off this drama. A drum kit followed when about five years old, followed by guitar, bass & then piano. However, this is a story that strays a little from the average musical tale, almost every major genre has been explored – only now has he has found a musical palette with which he feels comfortable.

-” . . . Playing around with the deep, sexy, funky and charming universe of House is very pleasing, and I have never enjoyed music the way I do now. I’ve found a niche where I can do the stuff I like, evolve in any way I want to and explore the thousands of opportunities electronic music brings . . .”
Currently Paxton is venturing down the deep and wondrous path of Deephouse and downtempo, Be sure to check the upcoming releases.

With Nico Jaar leading the way, slow(-er) side of house music is definitely developing into something verrrry warm & friendly. Good news for everyone i guess.
I give you a recent mixtape of Paxton Fettel’s current music.. another nice thing: no boring snippets, but a full length mixtape. Check his soundcloud for more.. this is good!

Lompret & Stoubish for Input Selector – Episode 79

February 28th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

The very promising duo Lompret & Stoubish made a excellent experimental downtempo and hiphop podcast for Input Selector in January 2011 (i posted about Input Selector before)… Great tracklist, head nodding guarantee!
Input Selector writes:

“Our collection is being enriched today by its 79th edition, going through another dimension. In effect, this sequence presented by Lompret (who we introduced through his wonderful jazz session) and Stoubish (the last newcomer in the team) will be our first Hip Hop podcast. These two parisians both seem to have a promising future, they compose and share on Lompret’s soundcloud page, and have already dropped mental tracks.”

Enjoy the music!

I really like downtempo music and i keep discovering tunes i really enjoy. I present you Blockhead who released the Album “The Music Scene” for Ninja Tunes in 2009.  New York based hip hop producer Tony Simon aka Blockhead released emotional, hip hop based intrumental tunes with complex melodies for many years. Here are 3 favourites, 2 from 2005 and one from the recent Album. Have a good weekend!

Fresh downtempo mixes from Gelka

February 20th, 2010 // 2 Comments // Posted by Lukas

Sergio and Alex aka Gelka produced one of the best chill albums from 2008 and their track “Soon” is among my all time favourites. Such a positive groove.  The gelka mixtapes are a nice mixture of old-school chill, jazz, nu-jazz, downtempo and hip hop. Perfect for home listening, chilling after a party or just for your way to work. Go for their soundcloud for the tracklisting. Full respect Gelka!!
