After running his great klamauk label for quite a while already in a successful way he now also takes care of Fine, the label he runs with Johannes Albert.

Review: Tilman & Soutine – One Day Off – Fine

HouseReviews

Tilman and Soutine team up for the fourth release on the small Fine imprint, which is run by Tilman himself and Frank Music’s very own Johannes Albert. While Tilman is pretty familiar to us with his warm, discoish and sample based house sound, we had to do some research about Soutine. Now that we did that, we can say it’s a match sound wise. Soutine, who is based in Florence relies on the same idea behind his music, but he plays around with more uptempo styles as displayed on his “OZ” EP which came out in February 2016 on his own Oltrarno Recordings. Using the same foundation and generating a neat symbiosis out of the different influences they have, a very enjoyable record came out in the end of that process.

Review: Moony Me – Contemplatin’ EP – Klamauk

HouseReviews

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

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

HouseReviews

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

Review: Tilman – Back to the People – Fine

HouseReviews

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.
