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.
With our 44th edition we warmly welcome Albert Imhof. The Nuremberg regular, who recently moved to Leipzig and since than commutes between those cities, crafted a cozy mix for us. Warm house beats meet soft soul chips, energetic disco and uplifting funk. Perfect timing with the weather changing from dark and cold to bright and warm. If you’re from or around Nuremberg you definitely know Albert from several parties like You Can Win, Jack It! and many others. He almost played every club in the city because of his diverse taste in music. House, techno, soul, disco, funk just to name a few genres he really likes. Besides his musical taste and background Albert simply is a nice guy which company is very enjoyable, so if you have the chance go and see him play and when you do so grab a beer and a exchange some words with him, you won’t regret it.

It Works Podcast:
DENNIS FERRER – THE RED ROOM – OBJEKTIVITY:
On the a-side Dennis Ferrer’s “The Red Room (OBJ Vocal Mix)” takes control with a naughty vocal sample shouting “welcome to the red room honey” sensually towards abysses everyone has inside. High bongos and soft drums mixed with a dark and pounding synth bassline end up in an unique track. The fluttering sounds and squeaky harmonica generate a tense track that finds itself somewhere between progressive house and techno. No way you get bored by this uncommon club track that mostly lives from his agility and the masses of vocal use. That’s the perfect tune to surprise the dancers, but still keep the party going. If it’s a wild party this banger will tear the roof off! Kyle MF Hall’s “The Red Room (MeMix)” is located on the b-side and shows the exceptional talent Kyle has. The way he flipped the original vocal sample feels like a nice and hard punch to your face. The extremely shuffled vocal generates an endless amount of energy and speeds things up in a way you never experienced it before. Accompanied with his signature drum programming which always stumbles trough the grid like a blind without his seeing-eye dog. On point every now and then, but mostly not it creates a nice counterpart to the powerful vocal and balances this track quite nicely. This is a real stand out track which brings break beat, house, techno and hip hop together. That might be one of Kyle Hall’s best works so far. It has everything Kyle is famous for, but in contrast to his other tracks, this one is danceable as hell. If you need some heat simply introduce your crowd to Dennis’ and Kyle’s red rooms.
SOUND STREAM – LOVE JAM – SOUND STREAM:
Frank Timm, better known for his alias Sound Stream provides the best funk and disco flavoured house records out there. On his own “Sound Stream” imprint he releases bomb after bomb, all his records get playtime from djs all over the world. “Love Jam” on the a-side of his third release on “Sound Stream” from 2006 offers an everlasting string for the romantic side of the track, in combination with the aggressive chords it lets you dream and calls you back to reality at the same time. It’s hard to define the magic inside this track, but that’s the thing about magic. It has to be mysterious, as soon as you crack the code it’ll be boring. On the flip side you’ll find “Makin’ Love”. Vibrating layers, dull percussions and a pounding kick instantly grab you. Your feets are moving, energy girdles you and happiness fires through your body. Super soulful vocal samples pop up everywhere as well as guitar riffs. Rushing disco strings in-between and a blasting bassline. All those elements of soul and funk music you’ll find in both tracks are superb and used in a way only Sound Stream is capable of. He always sticks to the core of his sampled material, but somehow manages to create his very own sound at the same time. Many try to produce powerful house tracks with elements of funk, soul and disco, but there’s only one guy, one label that masters it: “Sound Stream”.
Ohrenschmaus Podcast Hip Hop Selection #12.1 marks an important point in the history of our SLCTN series. It’s the first split mix series, inside of the series itself. For this particular project we connected with a very good friend of our own. There’s one person in Nuremberg that has a lot of knowledge about, and love for hip hop. The peeps from bratwurst city already know who we are talkin’ about: Jazz:Pa. It doesn’t matter if you love those dope gems from back in the days, those dope soul, funk, r’n’b or disco records that were sampled or the new bass music and future beat movement. Benni knows and plays them all. He really takes care about bringing quality music from the hip hop field, whether it is new or old shit, to the city. If you don’t believe us please check the bookings at his own party Beat Thang. Besides smashing some of the finest parties in and around Nuremberg he also has his own radio show called Beat Repeat on Byte.fm. Check him out, it will be worth your time, he has mad skills. Back to our selection #12.1 in his first mix Organix he selected music with that unique old school, organic, sample based touch which is well known from the golden era back in the 90ies. While listening to his selection you will notice there are classics as well as new tracks that perfectly match that classic feeling. Enjoy #12.1. and stay tuned for #12.2. called “synthetix”, your op.
