Perfect Winter Song! – Running Away by Sonnengruss

Everynow and then comes along a track that pushes you into daydreaming like no other. Sonnengruss just delivered one of those gems, his new track “Running Away”, which has been out since last Friday. Sonnengruss delivers a wonderfully lush vocal line with a very reduced instrumental track, that pushes forward with its deep bassline. Listen to this on full volume and close your eyes and drift away in your dreams about your once unknowingly loved ones. Keep two ears out for this guy!

Sola Plexus – Purple Frog Curly Legs

Yes, you have read that right.

Purple Frog Curly Legs, the new EP by Sola Plexus, is a family thing and I’m more than happy that the brain child of my dear friends finally came to fruition.

Not for the faint hearted but for friends of UK Rave, Grime and the likes. Favorite track of the EP for me personally would definitely be Dirty Digi Boom. The accompaning video is an adorable reminisence to 90s MTV video astethics.

If you care to show some love you’ll find Sola Plexus on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Here’s the full EP for your listeing pleasure.

Reece Lemonius – Comfortable EP

Happy Release-Day Reece Lemonius! We’re 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. Listen to the EP, enjoy your 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.
