Le Trouble’s debut full length album ‘Making Matters Worse’ sounds like all five bandmates and their individual styles playing off each other and ultimately shining through. To the rest of us, it’s homebrewed Pop with honest lyrics and big hooks that might sound calculated, but are actually are cathartic ‘fuck you’s’ they needed to let out.
Ya Tosiba is a young Electronic music duo by Norwegian-Azerbaijani Zuzu Zakaria and Finnish Skweee pioneer Tatu Metsätähti aka Mesak, that mixes old street poetry traditions from Azerbaijan with underground Electronic beats. Their sound is inspired by classical Arabic and Persian music, Scandinavian Electronic traditions and Hip Hop – a raw blend of analogue synthesizers, DIY elements and unpolished sounds, heavy Electronic beats mixed with traditional instruments and rounded off by Zuzu’s hypnotic vocals!
There’s no stopping Dub-Stuy Records. Their new 12” brings together resident producer Bukkha and one of London’s most recognisable voices, Killa P. The result is a deadly cut that takes no prisoners and is backed by an equally heavy instrumental paying homage to the pioneers!
Released in 1983, Guy Cuevas’ 12” Single ‘Obsession’ is probably one of the best French Disco-Boogie records, enriched by Jean-Paul Goude’s artwork for the cover. The A-side’s Nassau Mix by François K is a sensual and airy journey, while the B-side’s London Mix offers a more realistic approach that will please the more classic-listening disco enthusiasts. In Bonus Track you got also a very cool and Nu Disco Jazz Remix by Jay Airiness!
Rockster just released his 8th single – ‘Heartbeat’ is a collaboration with Singer / Songwriter Kay Ree. Her powerful Soul voice gives ‘Heartbeat’ a remarkable touch.

Zimt sind Janina (Keyboard, Gitarre, Gesang), Isabella (Bass, Gesang) und Ralf (Drums). 2015 in Augsburg gegründet, erschien 2016 ihre erste 7“-Single bei Kleine Untergrund Schallplatten. Ihr minimalistischer, fast ohne Gitarren auskommender Sound schlägt den Bogen vom frühen 80er UK-Post-Punk à la Young Marble Giants oder Marine Girls über NZ-Pop wie The Clean zum guten NDW-Underground. Hier und da gibt es sogar Krautrock-Reminiszenzen. Klingt gut? Ist es auch. Sogar sehr gut! Auch wenn Zimt fest in den DIY-Subkulturen der 1980er verwurzelt sind, gelingt ihnen etwas ganz Eigenes und Neues. Im Frühling 2017 schlossen sich Zimt im artikel 1 tonstudio/Hamburg mit einem Haufen Vintage-Keyboards ein und nahmen mit Zwanie Jonson ihr am 25.08. erscheinendes Debütalbum ‘Glückstiraden’ auf, die Single ‘Schwaches Herz’ gibt bereits jetzt einen Vorgeschmack!
