Moony Me - Contemplatin' - Klamauk

Review: Moony Me – Contemplatin’ EP – Klamauk


The “Contemplatin’ EP” by Moony Me marks the ninth release by  Mainz based imprint Klamauk. As the labels sound is strongly connected with a warm and housey attempt towards club music this EP fits perfectly in their catalogue. Three original tracks by Vienna’s very own Moony Me and a nicely done remix by Iron Curtis offer a smooth package for every dj and collector as well. Moony Me himself is quite busy at the moment. After releasing his music on labels like Uncanny Valley, Sex Panda White, Rose Records and many more, he now handles his Secret Crunch label together with the also known Roman Rauch. With his “Contemplatin’ EP” on Klamauk he once again shows his love for warm sounding, soulful house music and the joy he has toying around with samples. Crunchy house music is the final good that comes out after the production process and that’s just the way it is. Keep reading

Various Artists - Poly V.A. - Polycarp

Review: Various Artists – Poly V.A. – Polycarp


The second release from Polycarp comes with a great selection of tracks. Four tracks by Simon Ferdinand, Johannes Albert, Tilman and Basch offer a nice variety of different house styles sound wise. The Hamburg based label from Simon Ferdinand keeps up the great work that was displayed on the first vinyl with the superb “Poly V.A.” EP. The tracks are very diverse and reach from classical house with soulful elements to some raw house and techno, as well as slowed down mid tempo goodness. If you’re a house lover you’ll definitely find at least one piece, or even more, that fits your taste. Keep reading

Tilman broadcasts 4 warm and soulful house cuts as the second release on the Fine imprint he runs together with partner in crime Johannes Albert.

Review: Tilman – Back to the People – Fine


With the second release Tilman, one half of the team behind Fine, takes over. No artwork, just a simple stamp and great music. There’s nothing that distracts you from the thing that counts: the music. Tilman crafted 4 superb house cuts that offer some neat sampling, downtempo, deepness and an old school feeling. In the end four very warm and soulful tracks made their way onto the “Back to the People” EP. Positive music for the dark and cold winter period.

Review: Baaz – Untitled [Office08]- Office Recordings

A very enjoyable set of house cuts and ambient works came out at the end of the productional process, again he shows his fine sense for deep house. On top he added some nice ambient vibes and shows his progress when it comes to producing different genres of club music, as you can also hear on his new project which goes by the name Eric Miller with already 2 releases on the sublime Sushitech label where he takes care of dub techno and darker sounds.

Red On - Ghana Remixed

Review: Red On – Ghana Remixed – Verydeeprecords


The 15th release of the Nuremberg based label Verydeeprecords is the first one to appear on vinyl, after several tapes and digital projects from artists like Bambi Davidson, Christoff Riedel, Vincent von Flieger, Willis Anne, Magic Meru and many more. “Ghana Remixed” by Red On is a great four track heavy EP with remixes and edits by The Marx Trukker, A. Elm, Alex Ketzer and Red On himself under his Philipp Roth alias. As usual there were no musical boundaries on this project and it ended up with diverse re-interpretations of the original tracks, somewhere between left-field house and experimental techno.

Trux - Trux - Office Recordings

Review: Trux – Trux – Office Recordings


Office Recordings’ 7th release came out a couple of days ago, displaying a brand new style of contemporary music. With catalogue nr. 7 by Baaz’s very own Berlin based imprint it’s not about club playtime, this release is for connoisseurs of experimental and left field house music and ambient fans. The producer behind this project Trux remains a mystery, no information can be found. The self titled Trux release comes as a kind of mini LP with eight tracks, four on the a-side and four on the b-side. A nice mix between obscure house and free floating ambient add a whole new sound idea to the label’s earlier releases. Again the artwork keeps up with the music in terms of quality, created by the highly talented Super Quiet. Keep reading
