Ohrenschmaus Podcast #053 – Freund der Familie

Our Podcasts

Edition 53 is finally online and what a surprise, it is superb. We stumbled across Freund der Familie a few years ago when Baaz made a remix for their “The Symbian Remixes” EP. Besides the remixes we decided to go through their catalogue and check out some mixes and podcasts. said and done, since then we are really enjoying the project a lot. Now we managed to get Freund der Familie for our podcast series. Lots of styles are offered throughout their contribution. Bumping house, smooth ambient, sharp vocals and some nice dub infusions can be found in there. This mix really offers a lot of variety and tension. It’s far from average and stands out in a positive way in contrast to most of the podcasts at the moment.

Ohrenschmaus Podcast #051 – Audiorität

Our Podcasts

After the great left-field, ambient and experimental trip from Maria Brant for our 50th mix we now go on with Hamburg based Audiorität. As we are regularly listening to the It Works and Deep Afterhour series, we are kind of familiar with some of his mixes already. As soon as he inboxed us it was clear we really want to work with him because of his lovely selections from the fields of house and techno that are always strongly connected with the dubby sub-genres. This mix is a perfect display for his dub influenced approach towards electronic music. Thanks for your superb selection and flawless mix, we really dig the simplicity a lot. You can download the mix as a WAV-file if you like. Thanks, your OP.

Ohrenschmaus Podcast #050 – Maria Brant

Our Podcasts

“Watching decks turn – but it is important to listen” that’s the subheading for our 50th mix. The podcast series this time showcases Maria Brant. We never thought about making it to this ridiculous number, but here we are. And we will continue our work, that’s for sure. Maria Brant a DJ, radio host, promoter and of course a friend of us finally is involved in our small project. His mix is more than a podcast. It simply is a radio show without talking. The first half of the mix has a cosy mood and highlights some soft-beat stuff, ambient, electronica, world music and some minor drone influences. The second half matches the overall feeling and taste but showcases some more club orientated qualities. Left field and experimental house meets mid-tempo house and soft techno with retro synths, lush pads and lots of analogue sounds. Take your time and follow this beautiful acoustic scenery. Thanks Christian for participating, your OP.

Porter - Elevate - Rubisco

Review: Porter – Elevate – Rubisco

HouseReviews

Porter finally released his “Elevate EP” on Rubisco. Rubisco is the freshly found label run by Nick Beringer. After a neat bunch of releases, Nick finally launched his own imprint. The Berlin based house-head made the next step after releasing on various labels before. After the first output by himself, it is now Porter’s time to shine. Sounds cheesy, sounds good.  With his “Elevate EP”, Porter showcases three strong house cuts that feature all the goods a tidy house EP has to offer. Powerful drums, solid pads, exquisite strings and a beautiful atmosphere. Let’s just get into the details.

Ohrenschmaus Podcast #049 – Glenn Arkton

Our Podcasts

Glenn Arkton is a very talented dj from South Africa. To be more exact from Johannesburg. He follows the series for quite a long time and we kept in touch for quite a bit of time. Always impressed by his kind and positive vibes we connected months ago and that’s when we felt how enthusiastic he is towards music. He really digs deep and soaks it all in. That deeply impressed us and so we checked his mixes and what can we say they are great. So is he and that’s why he is now contributing the 49th mix. Enjoy his superb selection and the brilliant vibe, your OP.

Review: Baaz - Two (For You) EP - Office Recordings

Review: Baaz – Two (For You) EP – Office Recordings

AllgemeinHouseReviewsTechno

After Office Recordings 10th release by Iron Curtis and his “Maple EP” Baaz is back on his own Imprint. Office Recordings 11th release, again, shows a very different side. The Berlin based dj and producer showed his broad musical taste throughout recent releases. Dub techno under his Eric Miller moniker. Sharp house sounds on the latest Idealistmusic. Techno on this very record we are reviewing. The sound ranges from dub techno to ambient and into playful techno. Another side added, another one which is way above average.

Ohrenschmaus Podcast #048 – Barbara Boeing

Our Podcasts

For our 48th edition we stumbled across Barbara Boeing from Curitiba, Brasil. The 31 year old regularly plays as a resident at Alter Disco and Discoteca Odara. We really like her style when it comes to music. She treats everything equally, Brazilian music, disco, house, techno or anything in-between. She really has a passion for many different styles. You usual can’t know what she’s playing due to her versatility. But one thing is for certain, she never lets you down. Ohrenschmaus Podcast #048 is no exception. Quality disco tracks bring the sunshine and are combined with sample-based house and some minor techno. A very unique mixture, but all those different tracks end up in a very powerful mix. We really hope you guys and girls enjoy her contribution as much as we do, your Ohrenschmaus Podcast!

Ohrenschmaus Podcast #048 – Barbara Boeing by Ohrenschmaus Podcast

Ohrenschmaus Podcast #048 comes straight from Brazil. Curitiba to be more exact. Barbara Boeing took care of the selection and mix this time and delivers a perfect mixture of house, disco and techno. Lovely sunshine music for the great weather in Nuremberg right now, but also very energetic and dark in certain passages.

After we had some delays the last couple of times, we are now speeding up a little. Three weeks after Marc FM’s extraordinary ambient podcast, we are now back on track.

His outrageously good podcasts caught our attention a while ago and now he joins the series, finally. Besides his superb taste in house and techno music he also knows the hip-hop goodies.

Perfect for these sunny days or your pre-drinking session on the weekend. Make sure to check this spectacular 90 minutes, your Ohrenschmaus Podcast.

Moon - Industrie und Zärtlichkeit

Review: Moon – Industrie & Zärtlichkeit – Frank Music

HouseReviewsTechno

Johannes and Johannes team up again. We are speaking about Johannes Paluka, better known as Iron Curtis and Frank Music head honcho Johannes Albert. The Berlin residents joined forces again to craft their first album as Moon. “Industrie & Zärtlichkeit” is the final product out of this collaboration and it surely depicts the musical influences both have, but somehow it offers much more. “Industrie & Zärtlichkeit” is not simply filled with Johannes Albert’s rough and cheesy house sound and it’s not only Iron Curtis’ melodies and exciting chord progression. It’s more of a journey through different decades, times and styles of electronic music developed so far, merged into their very own sound that somewhat pays tribute to everything from the past and also gives us a vision of what could come next. The vinyl LP consists of nine exciting originals and two remixes. Lerosa and Black Spuma took care of the remixes and twisted the original material into their own understanding of electronic music.

Review: Drei Farben House - Fluency Fabrics - Tenderpark

Review: Drei Farben House – Fluency Fabrics LP – Tenderpark

HouseReviews

Three and a half years after Drei Farben House’s third LP “Choice Item”, he is back with his fourth long-playing record “Fluency Fabrics”. It’s the 20th release for his very own Tenderpark imprint and therefore a very nice anniversary. Seven tracks made it onto the record in the end and all of them are spiced with lots of vocal, funk, disco and soul samples. Drei Farben House again delivered what he is known for already. House and deep house with a certain warmth, on point grooves and samples that are a tribute to the originals they were taken from. Of course the whole album is not coming up with serious changes, but that’s not the vision Micha is following. Once again he plays around with sounds that are quite familiar and he already used, but for this album he enmeshes them differently. He flips the old samples and comes up with something new that is still true to his sound. The same approach can be seen on the artwork. “Choice Item” and “Fluency Fabrics” both depict architecture in a natural environment, so the aesthetical idea remained the same. So both albums connect on many levels and still “Fluency Fabrics” is recognizably the next step, with more details soundwise and an even clearer visual message, created by Till Sperle.
