Cambrian Line – Free Rides (free download)

December 10th, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

cambrian line release

My good friend James runs the great label Cambrian Line, and just upped some “name your price” goodies. A great chilled track by lovely Low Line Relay, alongside Darko Kustura with his deep house stomper “Hazard”, and  James himself under his moniker Borth Sea Defence with Ynyslas (Reprise). Way to go, full support for the Cambrian Line (also recently relaunched with a nice new website). Go check the other releases, some truly good stuff!

Hey, Rube! – Can You Hear Me Mutha?

October 22nd, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

hey, rube - Can You Hear me Mutha?

Inspired by Quantum Bleep’s great review of the Hey, Rube’s “Can You Hear Me Mutha?” (Steel Tiger Records) i couldn’t help but to publish it here so more listeners find out about the album.

“Hey Rube! is the new vehicle for Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire) and Steve Cobby (Fila Brazilia) to drive all over their legacies. ‘Can You Hear Me Mutha?’ features eight examples of their studio time together, touching on undefined fusions of electro, loungey sounds, dub and loping hip hop. Expect to hear at a festival near you sometime.” via boomkat

My favorite track is most definitely Pimpdaddy, i play it again and again. Enough said, listen to this gem.
As James states: “if you don’t buy it, then shame on you!”

The Invisible – Rispah

June 18th, 2012 // 1 Comment // Posted by Lukas

Rispah is the second album by The Invisible” out on Ninja Tunes. Brilliant, overwhelmingly rich in textures, .. an album i am sure to be listening for a long time. Must have, must listen!

Rispah’, the sophomore album by The Invisible and their first for Ninja Tune, is out now.

The album, “a love letter to grief” following the passing of singer Dave Okumu’s mother, is imbued with an inevitable melancholy but defined by a sense of hope. Throughout, the band reveal their rich creativity and musicianship. Echoes run through these songs of African music (including beautifully-woven-in samples of the singers from Okumu’s mother’s funeral), psalm tones and devotional music, In A Silent Way-era Miles Davis, hints of minimal classical composers such as Steve Reich and the wilder more psychedelic end of hip hop and related electronic musics.

Nothing is ever included for the sake of it, no attempt is made to patronise or sell the audience short. It’s a record brimming with real emotion and restless intelligence, a record to get lost in.

Windsor – More then a year

June 14th, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Windsor More then a year

Sometimes you listen to certain track, and it just stays in your head… and you want to listen to it again and again. “More then a year” from Windsor  is one of these tracks for me. Lush with deep pads, a slow kick and a great looped vocal. The second track “I am fascinated” feels more progressive.. but keeps the deep atmosphere. A very warm release,  sounds for rainy days as well as a summer evening.. a very promising first appearance. There’s not much to say about the artist/s.. the FB page dates to the beginning of June, the upload is 4 days old. I just know that this is produced in Berlin and i am looking forward to find out more. Have a listen, good stuff!

Lieblingsplatten at the Michelberger 23.03.2012

March 31st, 2012 // 5 Comments // Posted by Lukas

lukas dj set michelberger hotel

On friday the 23.03 i played some of my favorite records at the Michelberger Hotel lobby.  Jazz, Soul, Downtempo, Deephouse.. lots of the stuff i have been listening to lately. I uploaded the first 3 hours of a 6 hour set.. quite a bit more downtempo stuff going on in the first part, and i only managed to record the first 4 hours as my old macbook’s memory run full. Last 3 hours where pretty much mostly deephouse.
My favorite part is the start anyway, mixing up the old and the new.. enjoy!!
