Inspired by soul, techno and hip hop, he has developed a unique sound with a futuristic touch. Zurich-based DJ Kalabrese and singer/songwriter Sarah Palin with her exceptional voice signed on as guest musicians.

Robinn – Compost Black Label #115

Artist: Robinn
Title: Compost Black Label # 115
Cat No: CPT 436-1
Format: 12″ / Download

Impressive assortment of floor-filling house. Maybe it’s Cocolores best remix so far, plus a great room- and breath-taken remix from Anushka (new GP / Brownswood signing) and once again a tip top smart but shoving Lukas Bohlender house mix….this game is now not over. It’s just starting off the right foot.

Robinn is clearly a name /act to discover, watch, and follow. When it comes to modern hybrids of post-dubstep, nu broken soul, eerie downbeat combined with this genuine spirit of the vocals by Nathaniel Pearn (Natural Self / Tru Thoughts) it’s soothing and challenging in one go. Check Robin’s debut album „Multiphonia“ which was released on Compost in October 2013.

Cocolores comprises Jason Heath and Manuel Garay, two talented youngsters from Munich, currently living and working in London. Already getting love support from Maja Jane Coles, Luciano, Joakim, Ewan Pearson, Trickski and many more, their debut EP . . . →

Together we are YOKTO. Both of us have a long standing interest in electronic music in general and electronic dance music in particular.

Artist: High Heels Breaker
Title: Come Easy EP
Cat No: DPC 051-1
Format: 12” / Download

„Come Easy“ is the first single of the upcoming album by High Heel Breaker. What is „Come Easy“ about?
High Heels Breaker: „I wanted to write a soulful and electronic song with the idea to leave it as empty as possible by using the minimum of music notes and rhythms. Nowadays we are massivly flooded with (social media) data so that I prefer airy and empty music.“
How did the collaboration with singer Sarah Palin come about?
High Heels Breaker: “Zurich’s music scene is not that big. We know each other from the cooperation with swiss rapper Big Zis and met thru my mate Sacha Winkler aka Kalabrese. I called her on a monday morning and asked her, if she’s in and if she could write some lyrics in the following 1-2 months. I sent her the track, she agreed and the following friday the vocals were . . . →

Breathing classic deep house. This is deep house at its best. Including tip top remixes by Filippo Moscatello (perhaps his best remix ever!) and Russian wunderkind Dima Studitsky. Kinda accident: The Prescription Mix is 9:09 min. and the FNM Stripped Mix is 8:08 min., we are not sure, if planned or not, but maybe it’s worth waiting for a 3:03 min. version!

In the past, dutchman TJ Kong usually appeared together with his production partner in crime Nuno Dos Santos. They already released several Black Label 12inches and the album „After Dark, My Sweet“ in 2010. Now, TJ Kong is back with his very own „Sweet Sweet Lovin’“, which features the sensitive soulful vocals of Ovasoul7. This exceptional singer lent his voice already to the works of Deetron, Motorcitysoul, DJ Spinna and Slope.

In 2013, TJ Kong, in coop with Eric De Man, . . . →

Kalabrese / Jimi Jules – Hello Asshole / Kafi Lied

Artist: Kalabrese / Jimi Jules
Title: Hello Asshole / Kafi Lied
Cat No: Rump 003-1
Format: 12”

rumpelmusig, the new label from rumpelmaster kalabrese goes into the next round and continues from where it stopped with the longplayer „independent dancer“, namely songwriting, where the singer legitimately is part of, where the groove declares its love to the melody and the singing. somehow dancepop, just following the own rules. „hello asshole“ comes with a crispy swinging groove, which is almost a breakbeat and the sounddesign sweeps splendidly. and then this compelling guitar riff appears and together with the voice and a bold synthi-line, it lifts us to new heights; right where you just drift away, big number, somehow stoned, but still kicking. jimi jules is a true musician, who prefers recording everything by hand, just like kalabrese, and sings himself, when he’s in the right mood and has something to say. currently he’s busy recording his debut album, trying to express himself and refining his . . . →
