Iron Curtis – Live Recording Bassiani / Horoom Tbilisi 4.5.2018

Podcasts We Love

INTRO

There is not much left to say about Iron Curtis. The Berlin based and Nuremberg raised dj and producer made quite a name for himself over the years. With releases on labels like Mirau, Morris Audio, Office Recordings, Hudd Traxx, Sudden Drop and many more he displayed his versatile understanding of club sounds. It ranges from sunny house to mid-tempo deep house, chord heavy techno and all the way to very harmonic and melodic arranged gems. All of those influences can be found in his dj sets of course and his last live recording really got us hooked. Old school chord house meets trance elements and raw techno bangers with acid elements. All topped with a sprinkle of cheesy and soulful vocals every now and then. Simply entertaining and uplifting throughout. Please enjoy his mix recorded in May this year at Bassiani in Tbilisi shortly before the raid happened.

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: Iron Curtis – Maple EP – Office Recordings

HouseReviewsTechno

Iron Curtis makes his return to Office Recordings from Berlin with his „Maple EP“ marking the 10th release by Baaz’s imprint. After reminiscing on his „The K.M.S. Years EP“, which was the fourth release by Office Recordings, he now shows his more dubby and minimalistic side. After several releases on labels like Morris Audio, Jackoff Records, Boe Recordings, Hudd Traxx, Retreat, Polytone and his album „Soft Wide Waist Band“ on Mirau, he now highlights some dub influences. While we all followed Iron’s progress from beautiful and warm house with focus on chords and strings over to melodic and emotional club music with a more synthetic and modern approach, he secretly crafted some real beauties from the fields of dub techno and ambient, that are now offered to the public as the tenth release on Office.

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

Introducing: Office Recordings

IntroducingLabels

In 2012 Baaz released the first record on his newly founded, Berlin based imprint „Office Recordings“ which goes by the name „What About Talk About #1“. The Flipside of this record revealed a completely different side of Baaz, with the slow and melancholic hip hop flick „Way Out Citti“. With this track he proved that he’s not just an exceptional producer for deep house tunes, but has a lot more to offer when it comes to experiments with different genres. But „Office Rec.“ isn’t just a playground for his own productions, it also features EPs by his friends Christopher Rau and Iron Curtis so far. Both showed a different style of sound that we were used to. With „Magnet“ Iron Curtis contributed a banging four to the floor track, including crisp and pounding kicks, a lovely and unexpected voice-break and some extremely long-lasting patterns on his „The K.M.S. Years“ EP. Whilst Christopher Rau focused on a great bongo-loop to maintain an almost endlessly funky and happy groove, supported by playful chords and super soft vocal snippets. But the stand out release for the label so far definitely has to be Baaz‘ debut album. After an endless amount of releases he finally took the next step and produced the 10 tracks lasting „Red Souvenirs“ LP. With his album he adds another facet to his sound starting with an ambient related track called „Everyone“ that just makes you forget about time and space and just shakes you at the same time with sparse use of kicks at the right time. A few tracks later there’s the next unpredictable surprise with „Pressyn“. This track is so intense and makes your head bop instantly. Fluffy claps, a popping bassline, synths and futuristic elements meet hip hop drum-patterns in a way we never heard before. So it seems like „Office Recordings“ offers space for experiments, not just for Baaz himself and the artists he signs. Also the artwork offers place for unconventional ideas and is put together by exciting artists like Christian Fladung, who is an outstanding photographer, or the design team Super Quiet that also realized cover artworks for labels such as „Bliq“.  We are really keen what comes next from the headquarters of „Office Recordings“ and hope that the upcoming releases will be able to catch up with the quality of the first six releases of this young and exciting label.
