Reece Lemonius – Comfortable EP

Happy Release-Day Reece Lemonius! We’re so happy to release this four track strong EP and share some next level of great songwriting that shows you just how much Reece is bound to climb the ladder one step at a time.

Although playing around with unexpected movements and drops a lot, the lead-track still is made for you to “get comfortable”, sit back relax – but certainly your hips want more. I can easily see this being played in a club as well as the hotel-lobby. Sure gonna listen to this now, enjoying my Sunday morning coffee with the right twist!

PS: Shoutout to @Spotify, @SpotifyDE and Switzerland for adding comfortable to your #NMF playlists!

Door #19: Sonnengruss – Talking In Your Sleep

Pretty boy Toby scores with each track he releases. This one is a co-op/feature with Kids X-factor runner up Richard Istel who has a mind-blowing voice for a now 18y old fella. The original is one of my favourite 80’s tracks so i was at first skeptical, but anything that is positive, danceable with a good vibe is a score in my book when everything is systematically narcissistic, aggressive and pretentious if measure msuic by todays overhyped mainstream. The tracks Sonnengruss pumps out are positive, funky, get the crowd hype and the younger generation seem to completely dig it in his sets.

Sonnengruss, Toby had somewhat of a tragic story with many of his releases. Scoring a Nr 1 at the then still relevant Hypem Charts, before it became a farce, the song suffered from Universal musics inability to pump the track out within a week or two (took em 3 months w/o any promotion) and hurt the track severely. Same goes for his EP and now this track, that came out early this year, performed well on Spotify (over 1 Mio). But the officially greenlighted track by it’s composers, had a sweet video that (ironically) used the old original music video from 1983, lip-synced to the Sonnengruss Version, with some hilarious 80’s effects. Of course a major label/Vevo controlled the content so the new video couldn’t even be released and thus the promotion felll flat.

Seems like a lot of complaining, when most smaller to middle sized dance acts would be thankful for Sonnengruss play numbers, but Toby has the potential to grow immensely as an act, and he has all it takes, musically, as a dj/producer and as the earnest fun personality he is. And he is still in his early 20’s. Well Sonnengruss had learned from these missteps, Toby & his producer have made an excellent roadmap for 2019. They will work with us, have a great release plan and just had another super successfull songwriting week in Berlin. No more covers, samples and other peoples material – no matter if licensed or not. And this time the entire team supporting him and working for/with Sonnengruss is finally a 100% right. Tried and tested.

 

Door #17: C.O.W. 牛 – #niuworldorder

I’ve written about these guys before and I most certainly will continue to do so in the future. After very successful media-coverage on the likes of COMPLEX, Arte TRACKS and Bandcamp Daily (much love) and the signing to the very successful and renown Munich label Compost Records, this German-Chinese producer-collective still remains a somewhat hidden gem.

The playlist these gifted individuals created reflects on their influences, own productions and appreciation of truly great tunes. Mura Masa, KUSO GVKI, Higher Brothers, Kid Simius, Che Lingo, Syd, Col3trane, Nate Husser and so many great ones more.

Putting women on the forefront in lead-roles and with strong character, #niuworldorder is hinting on a future in which socially constructed roles and stereotypes might be altered. #niuworldorder all the way, I’d say! Gonna pump these tracks now. bye.

PS: For all nerds and gaming enthusiasts out there, go check their website. Lemmings are cows now. No s***.

Door #16 : Sideways Vol 1 Mixtape – Mat McHugh mixed by Tommy Montana

In our Christmas Run down, here is a full mixtape, Tommy did, finding time out of his super busy schedule in recent days, to select his favourite Mat McHugh tunes and mixing them together with the tracks we recently released. As a short synopsis: we did a remix album with Mat, but it was a long back and forth betw us Major labels, insane offers and our general idea of not letting us being nailed down in terms of naming tracks, or even the act/artist himself. I still fully support our mindstate, but it was a loooong time in the making and cost us a lot time, nerves and other materialistic stuff. But that is out-of-the-way now, and we as a label, are finally running into our old form, after having eliminated and cut off the shackles of the corporate technocracy, So yeah, we are indy and that is the best state. Dig into Mats superb originals and our remixes from 2016 altogether that Tommy blended into a super sweet Mixtape (old school style). Enjoy Sideways Vol 1. The next mixes/tracks we do together will come out in a heartbeat. Below find a link to the Album – so make sure to get that and save it on Spotify, Apple, but no download gate or any of that nonsense. Good music will always find its way.

Door #19: The Best Song this Winter PERIOD. “Dirty Habit” by Reece Lemonius & Lui Peng

This is the follow-up to Reece Lemonius first Song ‘Love Me’ that went viral on some bad hombres YouTube channel and garnered 20 Mio Plays in 10 weeks! NOW that’s true virality but ultimately that copyright trespassing channel got deleted and the plays along with it. Nonetheless, the track is performing spectacular for a no name’s first offering. And this is a team-up with fellow London native Lui Peng, who did quite a lot of solid releases so far, and has just returned from a successful Asia tour. These two made the sexiest love tune of the season.

Dirty Habit is Pure Gold

And finally about “Dirty Habit”. This track is the chillest, smoothest, sexiest track out there. It plays on all clichés, caters only to the mood and feel it captures the listener in, and ultimately it ends like a sweet dream, leaving you to crave more of that honey. It has the aesthetics of a european chill tune, but also the lyrical rhythmicalities of a US R&B/Trap Rap tune, w/o ever turning into a cliché, but still unique and fresh on its own. It definitely fits in each an every playlist from chill to pop, urban, r&b and almost everything else. Dirty Habit can stand next to any big name (tried and tested) and still come out on top, feel and mood wise. This is how comfortable i want to get on a chill night with my girl, and this is how my happy place sounds at any time. Definitely the strongest track right now.

DIRTY HABIT is BIG. Let’s see how long it takes until the world finds out about it!
