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 #22 – Sun Cream Playlist by Dunjah Sabreen

Sun Cream by Dunjah Sabreen

Door #22 –  holds a phenomenal playlist that didn’t go online yesterday (caught up in your average human Christmas pre-drama). But here is another favourite of ours, Dunjahs 2nd playlist that is fully loaded with lost gems and hidden treasures, and that whenever it gets played  has people asking for the ‘what is that music’. Which is rare these days considering how over saturated and all around available the constant stream of music has become, and how much magic it has lost. Anyways, here is a return to the magic of music, if you like to listen closely and pay attention to the finesse and grace that songs can have… You probably know some of the tunes, and although i despise the term diversity due to the online SJW nonsense, this playlist is truly diverse – but has one thing in common – every song is pure sweet, tasteful goodness and has a loving undertone. Truly enjoy this one;)

Ps Door#23 coming in a few hours.

Door #20: Reece’ntly Added – “Driving Home For Christmas…”

Reecen’tly added is quite an understatement. This playlist could easily be named “101 In Hit-Writing”, “Breaking BIG-TIME Soon” or “Still Somewhat Under The Radar”. Beyond working an incredibly talented and kind human being I love the fact that Reece can appreciate and find music in all those varied places – appreciating good songwriting when he hears it and is always hungry for more.

Ah! I forgot the last way I’d name this playlist – “Driving Home For Christmas w/o The Cheese”.

Love this! Thank you, Reece!

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.
