Like the title says Tiga’s back with a new track ‘Trust Your Body’ getting released this week on his label Turbo Recordings! The track was created with help with Finland’s own Jori Hulkkonen, one of the most underrated producers in the world! With just about two decades under his belt the man has become a living legend working with the likes of José González, Jesper Dahlbäck, Chromeo and a shit ton more!

He also has a pretty cool last name.

Fritz Kalkbrenner - Get A Life

Fritz Kalkbrenner. Another artist who, like label mate Till Von Sein, wonderfully exemplifies that cross-genre sound between hip hop, soul and house that Berlin’s SUOL does so well, whether in his compilation album from earlier in the year, Suol Mates, or on his upcoming sophomore album, Sick Travellin’.

Check out the video for the first track from the new album, Get A Life.

Sick Travellin’ by Fritz Kalkbrenner is due out on SUOL on 19th October 2012. If you can’t wait that long for a bit more Fritz, download his free podcast, ‘Drop Outs’, consisting of off-cuts from Suol Mates including tracks from Marvin Gaye, Cymande, Womack & Womack and Tanya Morgan.

Modeselektor – Monkeytown LP

Posted in New Albums, We are not a rock band with tags , , , , , , on September 30, 2011 by 4th level zombie

The long anticipated Monkeytown album from mental German duo – Modeselektor – has finally dropped today, If you don’t already have it, treat yourself on this blistering hot day. The bass laden tunes will make being bounced of the sweaty armpit’s of other folk, on the rush hour tube, seem almost tolerable.

Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary have come along way since the dark days of the Berlin wall and sprawling urban jungle that East Berlin became after the fall in 1989.  Those were the early days when Modeselektor didn’t even exist as a group! Instead Gernot and Sebastian were touring from one grimey back alley club to another, building and enhancing their reputation until they eventually founded their live show and from there, Modeselektor was born.

Review: Above The City

Posted in New Albums with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2011 by rachaelwilliams

Above The City Culprit CompilationEarly next month sees the digital release of Culprit Records’ first ever compilation, Above The City. Inspired by their legendary Sunday rooftop sessions at LA’s Standard Hotel; it’s the perfect release to compliment the current (and somewhat unexpected) heatwave here in the UK. Listen to it, enjoy the sunshine, and then picture yourself swaying to the beats, on a rooftop with LA’s beautiful house-scenesters. As opposed to peeling off your raincoat and bemoaning the end of summer, which, let’s be frank, we all assumed we’d be doing from here on out.

Opening with the idyllic sounding chatter of birds, it ambles along pleasantly enough with some fairly chilled tracks from LA’s Clovis and London based Mark Chambers & Soho, but, like all great parties, Above The City doesn’t really hit its stride until about half way through. Nikko Gibler‘s contribution ‘Hide From No-One’ starts innocently enough, with a great beat to get the limbs moving that bit more. Then, a saucy little beat comes in over the top, and oh my, when the male vocals kick in… it’s enough to get a girl all over-excited about music again. After that it is just relentless. Lula Circus, if you’ve not come across them yet, are an absolute joy to discover. ‘Mary Jane Loves Me’ is a stunner of a track. If this is a fantasy set-list of a rooftop Culprit party, right now you’d be fairly sloshed, grinning from ear to ear, dancing your arse off. It’s that bloody good.

Drawing things to a close, but not winding things down is Leeds Death On The Balcony. This is totally the point in the party when you’ve realised you’re really quite mashed and you have a perfect bubble of a moment. Drinking with your pals, lighting each other’s cigarettes, taking photos, dancing together. Bliss. Finishing things for us off is half of Visionquest: Lee Curtiss and Seth Troxler. No, they’re not really calming it down either, just sparking those after-party craving with their track ‘Spending Time’.

This is a great first compilation-outing from Culprit, the label set up by DJ collective Droog. Considering that it was two years in the making, it sure ought to be. The signs have been there all along though, with their parties attracting stellar line-ups including Hot Natured, Magda, Dyed Soundorom, Shonky, Tanner Ross, Soul Clap, Benoit & Sergio, members of Visionquest, M A N I K…. I could go on here, but you get the gist as to what makes this so special. Fantasy setlist indeed.

Above The City is out on digital release on the 10th October.

Mr Oizo – New LP “Stade 2”

Posted in Dirt, dj, French electro, New Albums, New Music, Noise, Techno, Video, We are not a rock band with tags , , , , on August 4, 2011 by 4th level zombie

Mr Oizo, possibly one of our favourite DJ’s here at WANARB towers, has announced on Twitter that his new LP is to be called ‘Stade 2’ and has finished the mastering stage, which means it should be released very soon on ED BANGER Records.

The last Album that Oizo released – Lambs Anger – got WANARB blogger HazMat so excited, that when he got his hands on it we camped at his pad for two days listening to it on repeat whilst playing Mario Kart.

Yes I know, we’re fucking cool aren’t we.

We expect this LP to be just as good and will hopefully feature the track “A Beat For Douches” which you can hear in the video below. Unfortunately it’s only a shakey version recorded when Oizo played “Rock It” recently but its enough to get us all very excited. Keep your eyes peeled to the blog for more info soon…
