Joash – Don’t Fear It, Fight It

Artist: Joash
Title:  Don’t Fear It, Fight It
Cat No: CPT 371-2
Format: CD / Download

Quotes: Orchestral future pop. The spirited way Joash presents his dramatic blueprint of pop, that is carried by strings, is jawdropping when you listen to it the first time. It forms itself to a brilliant amalgam which thinks of Pop one step ahead. This is what makes “Don’t Fear It, Fight It” a timeless album. (GROOVE, 2011)

Info: Here comes the surprisingly silver shimmering nu-electronica. Well, the music style here is difficult to compare, we call it: outstanding gorgeous listening music. If someone may know the Penguin Café Orchestra from their most successful period of the early Eighties, perhaps this music can be described as the repetitive 2011 modern electronic version of P.C.O. The album fuses dancefloor sounds and jazz rhythms with orchestral arrangements. The result is a deep and beautiful soundscape of strings, complex drum patterns and atmospheric electronics. Joash is a London based producer who started his musical career as a drummer. Long before he developed a love . . . →

Cat No: CPT 355-1 / CPT 355-2 / CPT 355-3
Format: 2-LP / CD / Download

Quotes: Essential purchase for anyone keen to hear quality modern interpretations off the good groove.  Straight No Chaser

Info: The Party-Keller compilation series is a project linked to my constant Munich-based clubnights. After some short journeys to the Japanese Soultage label (Soul Jammin’ Vol.3) and a mix for London-based Breakin Bread (The Party-Keller Mix CD), we have finally reached Vol. 3.

In the late Seventies direct-to-disc albums were quite popular, since they sound great and people spent some serious dough on proper hi-fi equipment in those days. We actually coupling four amazing cuts from three different direct-to-disc albums here: Mickey Erbe’s Orchestra interpretation of the „2001 Theme“ (which I’ve played very often in the early Nineties, I almost forgot how good it is), then two superb Gino Dentie’s interpretations of B.T. Express’ „Express“ and Brass Construction’s „Movin’“, as well as Rahmlee (Michael Davis) from Earth . . . →
