“With the No. 7Erich Schall brings a very own, charming mixture of elements, in which House, Techno and Electronica seem to blend to something new. Piano & Worldmusic samples meet with noise & kickdrum, flute play meets Minimal Techno and then again the finest deepness. Exciting to listen and with loop listening potential the tracks show an enjoyment in music, sample play and dancefloor.
Having released on well-known Netlabels like Derkleinegrünewürfel, Basic_sounds or Tonatom, Erich Schall is very active in the netaudio scene for years. In addition to the classic Netaudio labels, he can also be found on some commercial digital labels, also does his own distribution via Bandcamp and bigger platforms.”
“Now reaping in what they have been sowing in the previous years, a selection of tracks that shows their work in the studio. Like how ‘Within You Without You’ pays homage to break beats and acid sounds and ‘Losing My Religion’ shows full control in a re-imagined pool side relaxing disco track.”
“Much is remarkable with the new EP by Alec Troniq & Gabriel Vitel, even though remarkability seems a pattern applicable to all their work. ‘Mind Doodles’ had not just been their first collaboration, but also one of the biggest hits for Broque, having been streamed and shared on the Web by the millions. There a plenty of good reasons, why the follow-up EP New New World is bound to become a similar milestone. Let’s start with the obvious ones: after having performed under a plethora of project names, this is their first joint release published under Gabriel’s name only, what puts his distinctive vocals even more into the spotlight, even though it had been the storytelling epicenter and trademark ingredient ever since. Similarly noteworthy is the fact that, Alec and Gabriel connected so well with the Dortmunder Philharmoniker while re-interpreting Dvorak a while ago, that they continued their collaboration, leading up to the New New World EP which features some first joint songs born from this fruitful yet unusual collaboration. These full-bodied songs in particular lift the drama of Vitel’s moving songs onto the big stage and underline the emotional drama present in most of their tracks, only to be gently guided back onto the dancefloor by Tony Casanova’s Remix of ‘Unknown Places’. New New World contains big emotions for both club and concert hall and is a worthy successor of the ‘Mind Mill’ EP. One question remains though: how the two are planning to ever top this one. We are more than curious already.”
“From the first idea to today’s release it was clear that I wanted to share this music with you, would like to do without, while protecting our environment. The Human Effect EP deals with the change and the structure of our society in both small and large scale and the associated irreversible damage to nature, animals and human beings. I see this project not only as an expression of my emotional and musical development, but rather as a wake-up call and a very personal, esteemed and loving thank you for everyone who stands up with.
The complete EP can be downloaded free of charge, but it is also possible to make a contribution of your choice. I will give the received attention in full to the World Wildlife Fund.”
