NYC’S Two Feet returns with 2 new songs, out May 19th on Majestic Casual Records – moody Bluesrock guitars, calm intimate vocals – extroverted version of early The XX. ‘Had Some Drinks’ sets forth the impressive hype created with Two Feet’s debut single ‘Go Fuck Yourself’ – honest lyrics, bluesish guitars and a massive beat dropping in the chorus! ‘Love is a bitch’ is the more laid back track and both will be released also on the EP ‘Momentum’ on 9th of June!
Sasha’s ‘Scene Delete’, an ambient/soundtrack project has been remixed by a host of musicians and producers.

Are you brave enough to detach the authority of society in search of Truth? This debut release from Beyun will postulate this trip you call life is both internal and external. Inherent are its paradoxes, scattered truths, and essential polarities. Once you listen you’ll experience a multidimensional introduction of what’s to come for both this new artist and the emerging Jack Trax imprint from Afro Acid. ‘Paradox’ is a heavy jackin techno thumper with a bassline growing more distorted as your reality breaks down. ‘Scatter’ lightens the mood with a blend of jazzy scat vocals amidst a heavy thump…!
Joel Mull finally re-joins the Kanzleramt Family in a collab with Heiko Laux called ‘Rooter’. This is Joel’s second appearance on Kanzleramt after his very much loved solo 12″ ‘Reminder’ in 2006. It’s also not the first release of the two, as last years Drumcode limited release ‘Slight Munch’ shows. Joel and Heiko have been friends for over a decade. The depth of that connection is reflected in ‘Rooter’ as much of this release was realised right at the kitchen table over breakfast or with a wine while cooking dinner. More parts of those sessions will be following!
Schlachthofbronx, the DJ- and producer-duo from Munich/Germany, known for their bass heavy original songs as well as for delivering beats to M.I.A. or Snoop Dogg, deliver their 4th original studio album called ‘Haul & Pull Up’. All while they engage with the most interesting developments of club music from Grime over Dub and Dancehall to Footwork and beyond, JakobBenedikt’s musical roots and soundsystem aesthetics are evident throughout all their new body of work. Guest starring on their hybrid club constructions is an international cast of selected vocalists!
Claus Fischer & Cosmo Klein founded The Phunkguerilla 2008 as a musical network in search of the band that was to bring their idea of Phunk to the point. The new album of Phunkguerilla was supposed to be just that, a band album! The 6 locked themselves up for 1 week at the Red Horn District and created new songs that feature strong songwriting, authenticity, musicality and bouncing grooves. The album ‘Kingdom on Fire’ tells tales straight out of life and deals with the strange ways of our society!

Recorded in concert at the Chautauqua Institute in Western New York on July 11, 1968 this release finds the ‘First Lady of Song’ at her best. This is a master class in entertainment. Backed by the fabulous Tee Carson Trio, the group had a tight knit report and fed off of each other joyously!
Knapp 10 Jahre nach Release des von Hedonismus durchdrungenen Longplayers ‘Lustprinzip’ wird den Fans heute -die Verschärfung der politischen Lage reflektierend- statt eines fröhlich anmutenden ‘Raven gegen Deutschland’, ein von Zorn getragenes ‘Deutschland, Arschloch, Fick Dich’ und ‘An Die Wand’ entgegen gebrüllt!
