“Marie Wilhelmine Anders is a recent addition to our Broque roster about which we are particularly excited; and not only because of her versatile background, which is ubiquitous on her album Andersworld. In fact, considering that MWA plays violin, piano, drums and e-bass since the age of five, already back then had a thing for early Genesis tunes, and studied classic contemporary composition at UDK Berlin and the State University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart only to push various music endeavours in between experimental, jazz and classical music afterwards, an album full of run-of-the-mill preset sounds would have been more than surprising. With remarkable ease, ‘Andersworld’ combines playful improvisations, traditional and electronic instruments, a serious sense for deepness, Burial-ish echo chambers and warm string carpets grounded in the afterhours of Motown with Marie’s wonderful vocals which let Robert L. Stevensons prose shine as they never shone before. Her songs seem to meander in between so different reference points as Larry Heard on the one side and the more atmospheric songs of Saint Etienne on the other side. While there are not many artists out there able to combine such distinct influences, MWA pulls all of this together into a deep, dense and coherent album. As if this would not be enough, Mar io and Zweig add the icing on the cake with their remixes, which wrap-up an actual opus of an album. ”
“Each December we release a compilation that reflects the current year and looks ahead to the next. It’s a mix of tracks where artists complement each other and where we feature some of their strongest work. It can be seen as a proud collection of tracks that defines the Atomnation sound.”
“Joe Lewandowski’s new EP Per fare l’amore at midnight was composed around midnight. This unique moment when imagination blurs reality. Chikyu-u next release captures this particular vibe with four new tracks, from dub house to downtempo jazzy, but always with a soulful and deep vibe .”
“Celebrating 25 years of Ovum with 25 releases available for download. All donations will go to Philly Pops – an EITC-Certified Program that enhances music education for approximately 2,500 students in the School District of Philadelphia by embedding Philly POPS Teaching Artists in schools to coach and mentor students.”
“We know Wattfutchureez (What-Future-Is) through Ness Radio, that is supporting GERGAZ music since long time ago. The guy is DJing, producing, hosting artists and he is also no stranger to compilations.
We knew his taste and he knew what works for us. It was the easiest decision to make when we started thinking about the next Beat Garden presenter.”
“Chikyu-u is back with another EP on the Unknown series ! Another diverse selection of 4 tracks from a mysterious artist you’ve already heard in our catalogue. The opening track has an old-school deep feeling with a discoïd solo that brings it to its climax. Next up, an endless high speed deep loop for the dancefloor. The third track is a powerful deep-house piece for sunsets and daydreaming. To end the EP, a piece inspired by dub techno with nice touches of house. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do !”
“What sticks out while listening to the Listen To My Heart EP is the fact that its creator Mar Io has been in the business for a long time and has mastered the skill of combining a range of influences and styles into very atmospheric tunes. After his previous vinyl EP on the Cologne-based label Form & Terra, these seven new tracks seem more like a mini album than your usual EP and embrace the listener with warm and atmospheric melodies, vocals and lots of groove from start to finish. Mar Io’s sounds are packed with club music history, ranging from acid house references, emerging through the Zweig remix of the title track, up to flashbacks into the more explicit and direct approach for which 90s club tracks are so much loved these days. However, he always manages to weave such influences into his tracks in the most respectful way, not making it sound like an obvious reach out to the retro-crowd but like a loving reminiscence of the glorious past. Not to forget that with ‘Shake Your Body (Give It To Me)’ (Electro Mix) Mar Io underlines that his latest EP is not only made for the dancefloor, even though this is where it surely will cause elevate levels of serotonine pretty soon.”
