Bambounou // Full of Feelings EP

19 Mar

bambounou - full of feelings ep

“Full Of Feelings” is released only 4 months after “Orbiting”. A clear sign for unrestrained creativity and joy. While the A-Side track “Filled”, an eclectic monster, transitions perfectly from the sound of “Orbiting”, “Brim” merges Chicago House and Minimal Techno, before the home listening etude “Boarder” closes the EP with yet another facet of the broad musical spectrum of pretty boy and young french genius Bambounou(Monkeytown Records, 2013) Beatport here.

Marcel Dettmann // Linux / Ellipse

3 Jan

Marcel Dettmann

HALF-TIME !!! The idea behind the label name is quite simple. After 50 single releases the label will not be continued and instead look back on a series of unique electronic dance music. With catalog number 25 the first half is now completed. As a very special guest Marcel Dettmann returns to 50 Weapons for a celebration of classic techno. Similar to his sold out “Deluge / Duel” single from December 2011, Marcel Dettmann affirms his love of purified, pumping techno. (Modeselektor SC, 2013) Out January 11 on 50 Weapons!

Dark Sky // Myriam EP

25 Nov

Although London bass trio Dark Sky‘s discography is still relatively short, they have proven adept with a varied sonic palette, one that includes serene melodies, cut-up R&B snippets, thundering organic drums, and thick bass sounds underpinning the entire operation. Their “Radius EP” released in Summer 2011 became one of the best sold and most sought after singles from the continuously growing 50 Weapons catalog.A year later it’s time for a strong follow up! The excellent “Myriam EP” is certainly living up to the high expectations. Garage rhythms, Clonkstep, Post-UK Funky, techy House references and even nods to Electro all united  in 4 smashing club tunes are a blazing example for the ongoing Bass evolution. (Modeselektor SC, 2012)

Bambounou // Cobe EP

5 Aug

Tigers didn’t raise him but he bears all the mysteries of the wild world inside of him. Unknown just a few months ago, he appeared just like a storm in the desert. His naivety is not dry. He creates his music compulsively and sincerely. His beats can make an oasis appear in the middle of the Sahara. This shaman has seduced the electro jungle, from Sinden to Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team and Modeselektor. He drops tracks like spells and captivates everyone. Bambounou’s debut album is scheduled for end of the year. (50 Weapons, 2012)

A Made Up Sound // Malfunctions

3 Jul

Dutch maverick Dave Huismans may be best known for his heartfelt and boundary pushing bass as 2562, but his longest-going project A Made Up Sound has been gaining just as much momentum lately with its oddball yet funk-fueled take on techno.

The Malfunctions EP presents two wildly different sides to the same story, evoking yearning, nearly broken machines struggling to keep time. It’s yet another incredibly unique and equally functional demonstration of how developed techno should sound in 2012! (Modeselektor SC, 2012)

Modeselektion Vol. 02

1 Jul

The monkey on the cover says it all. Compared to the rather cute and peaceful cover of Modeselektion Vol. 01, this time it’s all a bit different. The music on Modeselektion Vol. 02 explores darker, more experimental grounds, certainly still with one eye focused on the trademark Modeselektor party-factor. Featuring unreleased exclusive tracks by Monolake, Prefuse 73, Mouse on Mars, Clark, Lazer Sword, Martyn, Siriusmo, Addison Groove, Egyptrixx, Anstam, Diamond Version (a new project by raster-noton’s Byetone and Alva Noto), Phon.o, Bambounou and many more, Modeselektion Vol. 02 again unites some of the best names of electronic music scene. (MS SC, 2012)
