V.A.*/ Dingsikaxi “Festplatte“

For eighteen revolutions of the sun, they have engaged in the ephemeral symphony of real-time discourse, sans pretentious airs. Two to nine illustrious ladies of Berlin, weaving through the rich tapestry of styles and narratives, have, over time, summoned forth nearly two hundred ensembles. Genre: Concept-Pep. Each performance, each musical troupe, irrevocably entangled in the prose and nomenclature of all participants, venue, and set-up. Repetition, though a rarity, has, in some instances, been grudgingly sanctioned. Yet, lo and behold, there exists now: Festplatte. A compendium.

Lukas Lonski “Everything is so far, far, far, far – music for two”

“Everything is so far, far, far, far – music for two” is based on an electronic improvisation that was recorded in 2018 at the small Wukensee in Brandenburg.
After the recordings aged well on a hard drive, Etkin Cekin decided to give them a song-like structure, with a layer of his undoubtful double-bass and a feature from Lukas Lonski himself, quoting lines of Enzensberger’s poem „The Sinking of the Titanic“. This tune is a taste of Lonskis’ upcoming release on his own Osthafen label.

MAUGLI “Alba Remixes“

MAUGLI made loads of friends during his past travels, outputs & thoughts on global beat music. Arguing about cultural reconstruction is something we do not leave in the comment areas, we prefer to deal with it in our studios. So did MAUGLI with his genre-bending “Alba” release of the year 2021. Six ambitious musicians were hired to reconsider the organic sounds of “Alba” from yet another background.

The english producer and one half Shika Shika founder El Búho accepted the challenge, followed by a bunch of swiss underground statements like the bouncy vibes of Twerking Class Heroes, another diverse Lokke funk mark or the sedative attitude of Ali Dada. Finally balanced by the label mates Soček & Kundan Lal.

The outernational roundtrip goes into extension, keep the spirit & upgrade your ticket now on all digital providers.

______ _ _ _  _  _   _   _    _     _       _         _



MAUGLI blends vibrant sounds and driving rhythms from all over the globe. With a background as a drummer and of various styles, his genre-bending music blends sampling and recording into a lively collage. His crisp arrangements balance an electronic yet organic feeling.

His debut album “Alba” (translated from Italian as “sunrise“) is inspired by traditional music and the dance rituals of various Afro cultures and their diaspora such as capoeira, work songs or gnawa. While seeking to translate their spirit into the present day, MAUGLI combines these elements with electronic music, wobbling synthesizers and stomping beats.

EL MAGO “Kanénas”

Singer and producer El Mago debuts on YNFND with a 4 track gatefold LP entitled `Kanénas ́.
Based half in Thessaloniki and half in Berlin, he ties between two identities as greek and german. Transfusing the roots of urban Greek music `Rembetiko ́ with modern electronica, he symbolises his personal journey with the connection of his two cultural identities.

On entrance we start with `Gígantes ́, a fusion of vibrant humming, synthetic pops, crackles and the poetic voice of Plastelini. From the get-go we witness a vocal story written about the relationship with your demons, and how to live beside them. Interrupted by erratic gun- shots and bass-heavy shuffles, the message provokes a somewhat conflicting reaction.

Stepping into what seems like a distorted cave, `Thálassa ́ takes us into tripped beats, off-time glitches and synthesised brush strokes. Swaying between looming hums and a pull and release of echo as it comes to it’s end.

As we flip the record, a dissonant sample leads us into `Filakí ́, with what can be described as ancient bass. Vocal fragments shout but whisper as they are broken up by explosions. By the time the song reaches climax, you sense the origin of El Mago’s roots.

The finale entitled `Potámi ́ boasts delicate guitar strings, followed by laid-back rhythms and El Mago himself on vocals. A bygone tale comes to mind as Potamós embraces Mago’s musical past as a performer in the more traditional sense, an ode to Rembetiko once again.

You may think that `Potámi ́ marks the end of his musical odyssey, but in truth it is just the start. He is not Kanénas* yet.

*translated as `Nobody ́

The release is accompanied by 4 tarot-themed cards depicting each track with poems written by Lina Rococco, alongside 1 secret track on vinyl only.

KUNDAN LAL مجلس | Majlis

Two years after his hypnotic debut album “Periodic Perciotic”, wanderer of the worlds Kundan Lal returns with new outernational downbeats!
Three of the tracks on “مجلس | Majlis” are based on Pakistani dance classics by Muhammad Ashraf (PAKY LIFE), Khalil Ahmed (OVO RHAPS), Sohail Rana (VULGAR DRAGONS), and one on turkish psychedelia by Moğollar (TUDAMUS).
Selected micro-sequences of these old recordings are tangled up in a dubby soup of Dr. John-esque swamp percussion, off-beat bass lines, droney organs, a creaking synthesizer assembly and the trademark oriental field recordings by Kunsaf Halil, which are spread all over the record.
“مجلس | Majlis” can perhaps be seen as the missing link between Débruit and the Contact Field Orchestra.

His full length debut following a 7“ release on the label YNFND shows him expanding, deepening and developing his passion and techniques in a fusion of various influences. Although sampling still plays a key role in his productions, Kleine plays most of the instruments featured in the album, from Fender Rhodes inspired synthesisers to his Brasilian berimbau or the asian jaw drum.
Originally a trained drummer, you can hear his focus on rhythm and percussion without losing sight of harmonies or intrumentation. 1//23 is a stunning debut with depths and edges that dive into colorful downbeats and shapes, often creating mystery yet solidity, as the album title promises.

Schweben’s „Away“,a sample of Merlui Miranda’s „Pamé Daworo“, Ogoya Nengo and The Dodo Women’s Group’s „Kadana“ have been warped into the track.
„I bought a Shotgun“ the infamous Screamin’ Jay Hawkins used by sample trio „Den Sorte Skole“, returns to stage. Based on the pounding guitar pattern of Damon’s Song „Did You Ever“ Maugli kickstarts his second track with a bass and a beat that gets your teeth churning and shakes you to the bone.

“Glamour Folk und Schunkel-Psychedelik” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)

“Irgendwo zwischen bittersüßen Klangkollagen, beruhigend gebettet in subtile bis rituelle Rhythmuskonstrukte, finden die sanften Stimmen von ellenschneider ihr Zuhause. Ein gut funktionierendes Gemisch und einen gehörigen Schritt weiter als die gewöhnlich säuselnde Pop-Poetik” (Fusion Festival Guide 2010)

“es hat sehr lange gedauert… die rostocker jungs haben aber den ganz langen atem geatmet und jede zithersaite einzeln gespielt und ausklingen lassen und illustre gäste ins studio geladen und berückende arrangements aus den songideen gewoben, alles gut im rechner abhängen und trocknen lassen, wieder umgepackt, tribale toms in die aula der schiefzüngigen feierlichkeiten platziert und viel gewagt an atmosphärischem und hauptsächlich auch gesungenem, mehrstimmigem geäst.
drei mal die eins, ellens neue nummer.” (Lippstueck / Neumund)

“inside the room in my head, by sea under the stars to the moon … , und dann bauten sie eine kathedrale im norden. verwunschenes fachwerk, und darinnen sangen sie volkslieder, von geisterzithern begleitet … große platte ohne wenn und aber” (fieldagent Slowlearner / Goldmund)

“ellen als sonic experience. ellen gelutscht 2.0. ancient zither mantras melt into ethereal folktales within uptodate bohemian rhythm skillz. die familie im überbesetzten orchestergraben miemt die elfe, den wilden westen und das ritual. mit ellen auf reisen – i hear the voice of my friends.” (Kundan Lal / ynfnd)

Olsen and the Hurley Sea – s/t

Hinter Olsen and the Hurley Sea verbirgt sich der Berliner Singer-/Songschreiber Ole Ortmann, der das Projekt unter dem Namen Olsen and the Incredible Sound of the Unseen Orchestra zunächst alleine bestritt und zwei EP´s veröffentlichte.

Als Ole Ortmann auf den Produzenten Nikolai Potthoff trifft wurde auch The Hurley Sea geboren. Nikolai Potthoff nahm die Songs auf, produzierte und bediente anfangs noch selbst den Bass. Während der Produktion übernahm dann das spätere Live-Line Up von The Hurley Sea, Marten Rux (Drums) und Lorenz Baumeister (Bass).

“Um eine intime, dichte Atmosphäre bemüht, war das Anliegen, neben einem guten Sound, das Gefühl zu erzeugen, die Band spiele gleich nebenan oder direkt vor dir im gleichen Zimmer. Nebengeräusche wurden nichtwegretuschiert, Störgeräusche und Rauschen haben wir ganz bewusst im Mix gelassen, … letztendlich ging es um den Take, der das Gefühl des Songs widerspiegelte, und dies war mir um einiges wichtiger als der perfekte Sound.” (Ole Ortmann)

You need – COMPiPi

Zwanzig musikalische Ammenmärchen aus der Rostocker `Youneedfriends-notDiskos´-Familiensaga. Zwischen den Schubladen Folk, HipHop, Pop, Elektro, Dub & Psychedelic wird munter hin&her gestapelt. Das ist keine subventionierte Hobbyblase – sondern kommt mit Schnitt & Schmackes angedampft wie einst HerrJeh in Galilä´. Klublastige Grooves treffen auf feinsinnig bis theatrale Unterhaltung.
