Recent Records of the Week #48 // 2015

Highlights of the WeekRecent Records

This week we couldn’t come up with any records unfortunately. Searching for hours there was not a single release that hooked us on his groove, seduced us with outstanding vocal work or re-invented something new. It’s sad out there when it comes to house & techno releases at the moment. Of course it is nice to see all those re-issues popping up and providing us a second chance to buy the records for reasonable prices, instead of paying the discogs sellers that overprice the gems we would like to call our own. On the other hand, it seems like there’s not much left besides those re-releases. All the records sound like records we already own, no one tries to do something different, no one takes his time to achieve his own signature sound. This weeks news felt like copies of tracks that were great in fact, but you don’t need 20 tracks that sound the same. It seems like the young guns, producer like labels, always head for a safe way. A way they know it works when it comes to selling records or for the producer, a way they know it will function on the dancefloor. But that’s not what house & techno is all about, it’s about moving on, trying to invent something, trying to make things differently, creating excitement and emotions. Nothing of this was seen in this weeks news sadly.


P.S.: We know that there are labels that provide us with great releases, as well as there are producers that excite us, but both are getting less.

Ohrenschmaus Podcast #023 – Barbara Preisinger

Our Podcasts

The summer is gone, the days get colder and it’s dark when you wake up and when you fall asleep as well. But the sadness only sticks around for a couple of days and at the latest when it starts to snow the smiles are back on our faces. It’s the same every year and as the four seasons do their thing regularly we keep doing what we do as well, so please say hello to podcast¬†#023. As we already announced one of Berlins finest took over the controls, Barbara Preisinger gave us the opportunity to release a live recording from here last Deep in the Box party at Salon zur wilden Renate. It was recorded in the lovely morning hours round about 7am. In 2009 she started her well known label Slices of Life which holds on to releasing vinyl. If you take a quick look at the label description you’ll find some wise words there. Corresponding it says the produced music depicts a certain moment, feeling or status in the artists life. Therefore it would be not enough to release music for everyones hard drives, the result of many hours should be something you can hold in your hands. We really love the effort Barbara puts into her label, but of course in here Dj sets as well. We were a kind of surprised about the sound she played in this podcast, we love here deepness and driving techno sets and if you listen to the mix you can experience her funky side as well. Thanks Barbara it means a lot to us to have you in the series, the mix is really classy and that’s exactly what you are as a person.
