A while has passed since our last compilation has been released but just in time for the 2011 holiday season Project: Mooncircle and Finest Ego bring you the already fifth edition of our acclaimed compilation series. Shifting focus towards central Europe, we find the three countries Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Sharing lots of their historical and cultural heritage, this copious collection contains work from producers of a wide range of musical manifestations – all located in the spectrum between traditional sample-based and organic sound to electronic and experimental compositions. Grown up in the nineties with the organic sounds from across the big pond and a long tradition of electronic music in the German speaking world, this compilation showcases the fusion of electronic and classical soulful organic elements in the beat scene. The sound is as diverse as the country and its people, from Spaetzle to Klopse and from HipHop to Techno, on this compilation you can find Boombap from the likes of Brenk & Suff Daddy but also electronic sounds from the likes of Robot Koch and Bit Tuner as well as atmospheric sonical waves from Glenn Astro and Anthony Drawn.
The influences vary from Jazz records, video games, Hip Hop, Drum ‘n’ Bass and Techno. But are there two different camps clashing here? Retro vs future, mountain village vs urban center, winter vs summer…
The compilation includes acts like Chief, Brenk, Dexter, Mono:Massive, Hulk Hodn, Captain Crook, Stroe, Hubert Daviz, Comfort Fit, Robot Koch, Jazzo & Melodiesinfonie, Quendolin Fender, Ju-Ar, Twit One, Suff Daddy, Figub Brazlevic, Szenario, Portformat, Flowtec, D-Fekt & Mr. Beef, Bit-Tuner, Feux, Kalifornia Kurt, B-Ju, Playpad Circus, Flex Fab, Ill-Luzion, Anthony Drawn, Hazeem, Minor Sick, XL The Red One, Glenn Astro, Frederic Robinson, and Willy Sunshine.
Following last month podcast from Portugal, let’s now introduce the young Montreal- based DJ – IDM producer who’s behind our 4th edition of the Unlog Podcasts (Click here to view them all). VNDL is Philippe Vandal, 21 years old, from Montreal, Canada. Philippe started producing electronic music in October 2009. Inspired by the whole Hymen Records and even Abstrakt Reflections, he is surrounded by his own inspirations. Access to Arasaka, Amon Tobin, Gridlock, Apparent Symmetry, HECQ, just to name a few…
))) What’s musically to expect by the next 6 months?
- An EP called Something for Someone out on Abstrakt Reflections (label from Argentina) by the end of July, I hope! This EP will be a subtle melting between organic and cinematic substances, ambient and rythmic tracks, all in a futuristic mood. By then, Abstrakt Reflections‘s next compilation will also include a track I’ve made and should be available around the end of June
- Some remixes planned on Raumklang Music (Germany)
- A LP to be released on the incredible german label Hymen Records.
- If you’re around Montreal by July 20th, come by the Belmont for a special homebrew set by VNDL @ Bass Drive
