Siriusmo a.k.a Moritz Friedrich from Berlin, apparently is not into club music at all - but he could have fooled us with this excellent mini LP. Siriusmo is Modeselektor's partner in crime and he has remixed Simian Mobile Disco's 'It's The Beat', Boys Noize, French Yelle and, of course, Modeselektor themselves. On this release you will find eight tracks that take you on a journey, from arpeggio tracks like 'Simple' or 'Diskozinzin' to 2008 discomusic like 'Diskoding', 'Too Simple' or 'Last Dear'. The anthem 'Mein Neues Fahrrad' gets reworked by Boys Noize himself and is a sure shot to get the party started. Strong, diverse, very exciting and exclusively here... on sashasretroemporium

Germany's own Zero Cash delivers the goods with his unique gangsta maximal sound. Big klanging drums, monster grooves and dodgy on the dancefloor fills and turns drive things all the way to the edge and over on "Push It". On the flip Mr. Cash takes you out to orbit with some serious space ship funk that would make even the most uptight Vulcans do a backflip and spin on their heads.

IN FLAGRANTI - Wronger Than Anyone Else

Title : Wronger Than Anyone Else
Genre : Electronic
Style : House/Disco/Electro
Format : 1xCD
Label : Codek
Catalog# : CRE001CD
Release Date : 18/09/2006
Tracks : 17
Play Time : 53.33

"Wronger Than Everyone Else" is the title of IN FLAGRANTI's first full length Album. After a productive 2005/06 season with six 12" vinyl ep's, In Flagranti releases the tracks from the vinyl, with additional unreleased tracks, on CD. "Wronger Than Everyone Else" is difficult to pin down as the name would suggest, though critics have compared IN FLAGRANTI with acts such as, !!! (chck chck chck), Daft Punk, The Rapture... and as a club promoter describes " New York's funkiest exponent of the ever growing disco-punk revival". But their sound is distinctively unique.
In Flagranti is the duo of Sasha Crnobrnja and Alex Gloor. They both have been in and around various scenes on opposite sites of the globe between New York and Europe. What they share is the simultaneous discovery of the italian cosmic scene from the late 70's early 80's. Both were hooked after hearing some of the mixed tapes in the early 80's, which had this hypnotic blend of electro-disco-afro-rock-funk-dub. in the search of like minded people and the music they loved, Sasha and Alex meet in Basel/Switzerland. It didn't take long for Sasha to join Alex who moved to new york in the early 80's, and also make the move to the big apple, in 1993. the musical bond had become so strong that they decide to start their own record label "Codek Records", which will mark the 10th anniversary in 2006.
Since the beginning of Codek Records, Alex and Sasha aim to explore the cosmic background in every possible way by creating and putting together different elements of art/graphic design and styles of music in to a seamless flow, which ultimately leeds them to create "In Flagranti", an act that would reflect all that, and continue to explore the endless possibilities of a 'cut and paste' esthetic. Their DIY attitude, which came in many forms like "Organic Grooves" Sasha's long running weekly party and "SMYLONYLON" tapes, Alex's by now legendary mix tapes, gained them a lot of street credibility in New York and abroad. In addition the CODEK sleeve design is a big part of the whole esthetics, especially some of the early hand silk screened sleeves, which the Wire magazine calls "the best in the business". In Flagranti pushes the envelope further by adding video clips that accompanies each song which are displayed on their website and shows the visual influence. Woman-Glamour-Trash-Chic is the identity which brings out the new punk attitude.
From the electronic Disco sound of Gorgio Moroder, Patric Cowley to punkfunk of Liquid Liquid, A Certain Ratio and more contemporary sounds of todays dance music, "Wronger Than Everyone Else" is a erotic funny collage of all the above. Whilst restricted distribution in the past and limited pressings has meant that previous releases have slipped somewhat under the radar, a buzz has been steadily building as many known djs (ivan smagghe, trevor jackson, cloe, steve kotey...) are playing the records and the name appears on many playlists and compilations world wide. Described by xlr8r magazine as "rare grooves from another planet", the critics have been favorable. Time Out NY voted 'In Flagranti' as one of the best in 2005.

Released on Rekids, one of Britain's most reliably excellent dance labels, The Difference Engine finds Solomon indulging his passion for acid house, Detroit techno and post-punk without ever being in thrall to them. It is a relaxed, loose-limbed affair, inventive and astonishingly hooky, at times reminiscent of a less mannered, less middle-aged LCD Soundsystem. The title track trips lightly down a cutely infectious riff, while cowbells, chants and tribal percussion clatter around. Elsewhere, dramatic disco strings, horn fanfares and jazz saxophone melodies snake their way through the thicket of beats.

Surkin - Fireworks Refired

Label : Institubes
Catalog# : INS 12018
Release Date : 28/05/2007
Tracks : 07
Play Time : 22.27

Remixes on the record straddle a couple of boundaries between dance scenes. Surkin delivers a new and improved version of future house classic “Radio Firewoks”—punchier, fattened with generous helpings of white noise—and a new-ish track, “Kiss'n Horns”, which turns lover's lane anthem “Kiss And Fly” into a jacking house monster, complete with horn breakdown. Institubes O.G. Tacteel beams us back to the golden age of filtered house with sun-kissed vocals and plane sound effects, while Dance Mania Don DJ Slugo (himself!) turns “And You Too” into a ghetto house party starter which launches into full Juke mode after the breakdown. AND: Aussies Riot In Belgium (of “The Acid Never Lies” and “La Musique” fame) deliver a MASSIVE, shockingly effective, big room remix of “Radio Fireworks”, with the build-up to end all build-ups. Melbourne, Chicago, Paris. Vocal tracks included as locked grooves.

Like kindred cousins the DFA, Gomma Records make smart electric music for your ass. The hugely respected European label is home to Tomboy, Daniele
Baldelli, In Flagranti, WhoMadeWho and Diskokaine; and they’re launching their superb new comp ‘Gommagang 4’ (released on 21st May) at Nodisko.
Gomma head honchos the brothers MUNK will be entertaining us with their anachronistic take on house, electro, techno and avant dance in a rare
London DJ set, while hotly tipped label newbiesRODION fly in from Rome for a full live show – which has already been tearing the roof off of clubs in their native Italy.
The brilliant Gomma label celebrates 100 releases and 7 years in the game!
NME – “Gomma is like a German DFA!”
Munk present Gommagang 4... The two leaders of the pack, aka (Italian) Mathias Modica and (German) Jonas Imbery are the founders of the Gomma label
and it’s main activists. Having launched the label at the start of the new millennium, the pair have released two artist albums and created a small
underground empire for themselves. Part of a new scene of freestyle labels that connect music with design, alternative art and cutting edge fashion,
Gomma are the German brothers to New York’s DFA and Whateverwewant, Belgium’s Eskimo and France’s Ed Banger, Tigersushi and Kitsune. A global family, armed with a naked smile and a flat beat, they’re here for the post-minimal generation...
If by chance you haven’t checked a Gomma release, then Gommagang 4 is the perfect place to start. A label with a distinctive sound but an open musical boundary, they connect space-electronic and indie rock, disco and no-wave, weird folk and techno-funk. Proud of their steady nonconformist output, they’ve never followed trends and have now developed a musical language that has, and still is influencing many bands and labels alike. True innovators, they inject originality into the too-retro rock scene and the ever-so one-dimensional electronic music world.Having released 80 x 12” vinyl singles and 20 x CDs, this new Gommagang album features tracks from 2006 and
2007. 22 hits and remixes from the last year, it’s not so much a DJ mix, but a sonic collage.Heavily influenced by the famous 70’s Munich Discorock spirit and the Italian cosmic vibe , it manages to cross between numerous styles and genres with a
seamless thread and a unique approach. It’s purposely pitched down and the slow, rough, theatrical and spaced out sounds makefor one of the most interesting label compilations of recent times.
A true representation of their international roster, GG4 features the exciting solo project of Nick McCarthy of Franz Ferdinand, Box Codax (Glasgow), WhoMadeWho (Copenhagen) – who you might know from their live support for Soulwax last year.
The irresistible Headman (Switzerland) and Stephen Dewaele from Soulwax (Ghent), Cosmic disco legend DJ Baldelli (Rimini), Tomboy (Copenhagen) – the guy who after singles for Get Physical, Kitsuné and Tiga’s Turbo Records released a much appreciated debut album on Gomma this February. Rodion (Rome), Drrtyhaze & In Flagranti (New York), Parker Frisby (Berlin), Transmania (Vienna) and of course Munk
(Munich) who are best known for their indie disco hit ‘Kick Out The Chairs!’ which featured James Murphy and Nancy Wang of LCD Soundsystem.
The British contingent represent on the remix, with Erol Alkan (aka Mustapha 3000), Playgroup, Naum Gabo (aka Optimo) and new electronic shooting star Metronomy all delivering some of their finest work to date.

David Rubato is a new signing for the Institubes label. He lives in Paris. He's in his twenties. Former rave kid. Not a DJ. He studied composition and musicology, but dance music is something of a calling. Got into techno very young. At 15, Rubato wrote to French techno legend Laurent Garnier to ask him how to use a TB 303. Garnier calls him up and invites him to come and meet him at Rex Club. 'Circuit' was recorded live in one take and edited down to 5 and 8 minutes versions. and could be defined as House and Electro fighting for track domination, with Disco providing treacherous air support to both. Either way it's big room monster.

Pretty simple story, really. We put out Let’s Go Bobmo! a couple of months ago, Bobmo’s debut 12”.
Went over really well. The kid is touring, playing everywhere, getting thrown out of Berlin clubs for lewd behaviour, remixing Jape and Scenario Rock—good times.
One track of the single stood out and got lots of plays: To the Bobmobile. And, lo and behold, we received a great remix from our friends Kazey & Bulldog.
This is what we had to say on the original Bobmobile: “The track will appeal to the kidult lurking behind your polished techno connoisseur facade. Drums pumping and shuffling, cute two-note organ riff, filters opening and closing spasmodically, vocal stabs heckling and cackling, climaxing at some point into a little percussive solo, like a sugar-addled kid breaking into a tap dance routine in the middle of his bar mitzvah.”
The new remix brings to the fore the Baltimore components of the original. Parisians Kazey & Bulldog took Bobmo’s version of Baltimore Club and brought it closer to fancy footwork-worthy reality. One word: HORNS.

Gomma - Galactic No. 2

Title : Gomma - Galactic No. 2
Genre : Electronic
Format : Digital
Label : Gomma
Release Date : 26/11/2007
Tracks : 12
Play Time : 60.40

Collecting unreleased and new tracks from across Gomma’s spectrum of acts, Galactic No. 2 effortlessly combines experimental sounds with club-friendly beats in a melting pot of retro disco and cosmic funk. Baldelli’s Xilodelphia opens the compilation in a mess of squelchy pads and glitterball sounds, setting up a formula that’s perhaps a little too rigidly followed. Whilst Salvelox, from rising star Rodion, uses the classic italo sound to great effect, Tomboy’s One Week of Bending is little more than "Tonight Matthew, I’m going to be Metro Area." It’s an intriguing compilation, and Whomadewho’s cover of the Villalobos classic Easy Lee is a brilliant rework, sticking two fingers up at minimal and launching into a delirious thrashing guitar line.

Solvent - Demonstration Tape (1997-2007)

Artist : Solvent
Title : Demonstration Tape (1997-2007)
Genre : Electronic
Style : Electro/Synth-Pop
Format : 2xCD
Label : Ghostly International
Catalog# : GI70CD
Release Date : 28/01/2008
Tracks : 27
Play Time : 62.29+65.02

Demonstration Tape (1997-2007) is a 2-disc retrospective compilation, commemorating Solvent's 10-year career in electronic music. Late-2007 saw Solvent touring all over the world, including stints opening for VNV Nation (certainly the biggest name in today's EBM/Gothic scene), and with Freezepop (heroes to synthpop kids and Guitar Hero enthusiasts worldwide). "Demonstration Tape" was originally conceived and compiled by Solvent, in order to sell at the shows, and to serve as an introduction to the Solvent catalog for these newest listeners.
In January 2008, Ghostly International will release "Demonstration Tape" to the public at large, both as a limited edition double-cd (700 copies only), and in digital format. The 27-track collection documents all the 'hits' of the past decade, as well as some of Solvent's own personal favorites, many of which have been long out of print. Also featured are 3 previously unreleased songs, including Solvent's latest vocoder pop track and recent live-set favorite, "In Light".
So what does 10 years of Solvent sound like? Well, Solvent has created his own unique version of electro-pop: too elegant and sincere for the electroclash set, too complex and contemporary to sound like it was recorded in 1981, and too seeped in the time-honored traditions of melody, songwriting and hands-on synthesis to be lost in the overcrowded world of laptop-techno.
During his career, Solvent has been embraced by a diverse demographic of music listeners and "Demonstration Tape" makes it clear that Solvent's music transcends simple genres. There's slow, romantic electronica ballads ("Duckie," "A Panel of Experts," "An Introduction to Ghosts"), driving, dark electro bangers ("Think Like Us," "Creepy Crawler," "Built-In Microphone"), and pretty much every mood, tempo and emotion in between. Consistently, you'll hear strong, memorable hooks, engaging melodies, and a purist's palette of warm, organic analog synthesizer tones.
Also included are several examples Solvent's exemplary vocoder-synthpop sound, featuring hits like "For You," "'Wish," and (of course) Solvent's signature song, "My Radio," still a dance-floor staple everywhere from techno clubs in Ibiza to goth clubs in Berlin.
"My Radio remembers these Cocoon Closing Parties in Amnesia... a clear anthem...
