Schilling - Hella

Mar 30, 2017 APLTRONIC001Apparel Music return with the introduction of a brand new sub label - Apparel Tronic. The intention for this new division of sound is to shift focus towards UK-rooted Beats, Nu-Jazz, Downtempo and Jungle - a collection of styles the label like to term ‘Bliss-Beat’. This treasured and futile basis of influence gives rise to Giuseppe D’Alessandro a.k.a KiSK and Ludovico Schilling SCHiLLiNG’s new project which they inaugurate with the ‘Hella’ LP from SCHiLLiNG himself: a collection UKindebted dance tracks that meld influences from Jungle, BreaksRead the whole story

Farbror Resande Mac

Mar 30, 2017 mambo002lp

Following their "Atalanta"12", Stockholm-based Farbror Resande Mac returns to Horisontal Mambo with this extended EP of b**earic bliss.

Through releases on labels such as Aficionado, Back to the Balearics and Is It Balearic they've carved their own niche in the tropical music climate we northeners like to embrace. Although it's hard to to escape the use of the dreaded b-word it might be the most fitting label still.

Anyway, we love it and we hope you do to.

fine032lp« Nous Horizon » is Yuksek’s great studio album comeback, 5 years after his last album.

Art Alfie Reveries Of LP

Mar 7, 2017 barn047lpThe reveries begin with a simple electrical hum - a starting signal for the appearance of a vibrant array of sound, shifting before us in seemingly random motion. Before we know it, all those pulsating melodies, razor-cut hifi-house beats and drunken robot jazz ensembles start forming into patterns, secretly & perfectly designed by one Art Alfie. A long time operator in Stockholm’s small but insistent underground music scene, Oscar Wedrén broke through internationally in 2012 with the Karlovak project, founded with on-off studio and dj partner RudolfRead the whole story

Raphael Danilo Feat. George Pappos — “Strangers, Nikkname, Innellea Rmxs” on PAULS MUSIQUE / FREERIDE MILLENIUM

DJ: “XLR8R: The EP lands with an original cut, titled "Strangers," and two remixes from German pair Innellea and Cologne artist Nikkname, both of whom flip the cut into enchanting interpretations. Danilo and Pappos' original takes cues from their home area on the edges of the Greek mountain Parnassos and the ancient sanctuary of Delphi and all three cuts focus on the stunning sound design and spiritual synth work from the Greek producers. Amevicious (La dame Noir / Nein / Blindetonation / Play Pal/ The Exquisite Pai) 'Un cool single mais trop different pour intégré mon dj set' Juan Soto (Nang / Electrique) 'what a beauty thanks a lot for this Raphael and George <3 This is something to contemplate with your eyes closed and allow your mind to go away for nearly 9 minutes into a deep introspective journey... ' Duncan Gray (Tici Taci) 'I'll be giving the Innellea remix a try, thank you!' Somerville & Wilson (Hell Yeah / ISM) 'Beautiful piece of electronic music! The Original does it the most for us. S&W' Chloe (Live At Robert Johnson / BPitch Control) 'Nice Innella remix' Paul Bonomo (Snax) 'Like the original best. Nickname Remix is also sweet. Cheers.' Patrick Vidal 'Innellea remix will be nice on the dance floor' Billy Scurry (Dublin) 'Good production and vibe' Alexander Robotnik (Hot Elephant Music) 'Innellea Remix for me' James Teej (Rekids) 'nice release, interesting soundscapes, liking the nikkname remix the best, nice odd vibes' Neil Scott (El Diablo Social Club) 'cool ep. really diggin the nikkname remix' Pulp Disco and The Outcasts (Her Majesty's Ship, Correspondant, La Dame Noir) 'Love the original and Nickname remix. Thanks!' Bruno (Xinobi (Discotexas)) 'Love it! every version.' Sean Johnston (Hardway Bros, A Love From Outer Space, Disco Bloodbath) 'Very deep, late nite gear!' Reza Athar 'the title track is pretty cinematic. Like the melodramatic vibe on it. Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) 'Pretty cool vibe Proton Radio USA (Presenter): full sound!
