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.
