Moon - Industrie und Zärtlichkeit

Review: Moon – Industrie & Zärtlichkeit – Frank Music


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.

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.

Johannes Albert - Palm Saturdays EP (incl. Christopher Rau Remix) - Klamauk

Review: Johannes Albert – Palm Saturdays EP (incl. Christopher Rau Remix) – Klamauk


With the “Palm Saturdays EP” Franconian Johannes Albert makes his first move on Mainz based label Klamauk. The 8th release adds some new facets to the catalogue with Johannes’ very own interpretation of house music. This kind of sound can be found on earlier releases from Frank Music’s label head as well. Whether it is on labels like White, Jackoff Records or his own imprint, always displaying a dirty and old fashioned house sound that bribes with roughness. The three original tracks from Johannes are companied by a superb Christopher Rau up-tempo remix, which rounds up the EP perfectly.
