VIDEO: Fritz Kalkbrenner – Get A Life

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.

M A N I K plays Krankbrother party

M A N I K djingThis Saturday sees NYC DJ and producer M A N I K play at the final summer Krankbrother’s party alongside Nick Curly in London. It was meant to be a secret daytime terrace party with sunshine, pimms, bbq, dancing and sick tunes but alas there was a license-revoking-based-incident and they’ve had to find a new venue. What they’ve replaced it with sounds pretty good though, with a “beautiful massive warehouse space and a large outdoor courtyard….. DJs inside and outside.” MANIK’s sound covers everything from house to disco to electro to funk and so seems perfectly suited to laid-back daytime partying. Imagine hot girls in sunglasses swaying to sunflecked beats and you’ve basically stepped inside my expectations for the weekend. Tickets have also sold out now but they will have 100 on the door so rock up at 2pm if you want in. You will have to keep checking the event page to find out where to actually go though.

*UPDATE* The address has been revealed as: 77-81, Scrubs Lane, Kensal Green, London, NW10 6QW.  Make sure you’re there early enough to grab a ticket on the door!

If this all sounds like major hassle, please know that it’ll be *totally* worth it. Simply get your ears round this recent Autobrennt podcast by M A N I K. Opening with Tensnake’s remix of Little Dragon’s Ritual Union feels a bit obvious, but then, as the remix of Tigerskin – Unreal Thing kicks in, it’s just one of those moments where a smile breaks out of your face and you want to start dancing. This whole podcast is jammed full of amazing remixes, from the Life & Death remix of No Regular Play’s track looking, to Will Saul’s remix of Foreign Language by Flight Facilities to Tensnake’s superb (yep, him again) reinterpretation of Runaway – Stories. With M A N I K’s own tracks, Homework and even Black Strobe’s Italian Fireflies all making appearances; it just doesn’t let up. Seriously, download this mix and tell me you won’t be at least considering how to blag your way into this party/front of the ticket queue.

Introducing: Cocolores

Posted in House with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2011 by rachaelwilliams

cocoloresDo you get easily envious of young, beautiful and successful people? If so I’d advise you to look away now because I’m about to introduce you to Cocolores. This teenage(!) duo from Munich have just released their debut EP, Heartquest, on Exploited Records. I heard them about a month ago, whilst streaming Shir Khan’s Berlin radio show and was instantly taken with their ’90s house inspired sound. I’ve just been waiting from them to actually release something to tell you about how awesome they are. In that time however, they’ve been getting bigger and bigger, featuring on Satellite Voices and even garnering comparisons to Azari & III. And all that with a combined age of only 39. Makes you sick, doesn’t it. Not so sick that you can’t guy buy their EP on Beatport though.
