10 tracks that made my 2011

December 22nd, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

My friend Roberdo asked me to make a top 10 2011 selection for his blog roberdo.de published last sunday and i must say, not an easy task as there was so much good stuff, but great fun to go through some of the tracks that made my year. I really like the selection that came out so i decided to repost it here. Here you go, the year in one paragraph: I listened to a lot of slow house & deep house, indie, downtempo and dubstepish electronica.. in 2011 i felt the tempo going down, with James Blake and Nicolas Jaar coming out strong with their LP’s. The debut of New York’s Sepalcure is great, Motor City Drum Ensemble published a great DJ Kicks on K7 and slow house in general had great output with Berlin-based Trickski and 6th Borough Project releasing full length LPs.
I’ll leave you with my top ten + 1 playlist (in no particular order) which is perfectly suitable for the cosy winter evenings at home, some head nodding and foot wiggling guaranteed..

Looking forward to 2012, a great christmas break to everyone!

Yoko duo – First in Line (Fauxpas)

James Blake – The Wilhelm Scream (Atlas Recordings)

The Limp Twins (aka Quantic) – Sunday driver (Tru Thoughts Rec. – original from 2003, re-released this year on “The Best of Quantic”.)

Ifan Dafydd – No Good (n/a)

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!
