This month’s podcast features a guest mix from Jake Emerald, also known as Aras Zemaitis, whose music I have been playing on my show. Click HERE for his Soundcloud page.

Also featured are tracks from the forthcoming 2nd album from Satoshi Tomiie entitled New Day which is released on 22nd June on Abstract Architecture.

“More than 25 years after releasing his debut single and dancefloor anthem ‘Tears’ Satoshi Tomiie is set to release his second album in June. This legendary collaboration with Frankie Knuckles, that’s now considered as one of house music’s most important moments, was only the start of an exciting career. Satoshi Tomiie has been at the forefront of the global house music movement ever since. He released on a variety of labels going from Strictly Rhythm to Sony, toured with the Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto of Yellow Magic Orchestra Fame, worked with artists like Robert Owens, remixed many pop inclined tracks and been praised for his Renaissance compilation in their Master Series. All of this while creating artistic challenges for himself to avoid stepping into a pattern and repeating himself, and keeping up constant global DJ schedule.

With ‘New Day’ Satoshi Tomiie has redefined the creative process that surrounds the production of a full-length album. He wanted to stray away from the norm of albums made up entirely of singles. This is what made the long player a culmination of the styles that have influenced Tomiie throughout his illustrious career compiled into a seamless story. The album will be available in all formats. Ranging from digital, vinyl and CD to a limited batch of cassettes. Limited vinyl samplers featuring reworks by Ron Trent, Fred P, Chez Damier, Brawther, Mayaan Nidam, DJ Sneak and more will be released in the following weeks.

Satoshi Tomiie will also be doing a world tour along with the album release, the dates are to be announced soon.”

Radar with Emma Jayne January 2015

This month’s show features music from the debut album from Lake People entitled Purposely Uncertain Field which is released on 6th February on Permanent Vacation.

purposely-uncertain-field

Martin Enke or Lake People as the majority has become to know him has definitely taken his time for his debut album “Purposely Uncertain Field“, given his success from an early stage on and the quick development of the distinctive Lake people sound. But it wasn’t until 2012’s “Point in Time“ EP on Krakatau that his music became enjoyable for a wider audience.

Thanks to Dixon & Ame and numerous other DJs, who included the tracks in their sets and mixes the “Point in Time” EP can be considered a big game changer in Lake People’s career. Without riding a big hype wave Martin lived up to the increasing expectations with a bunch of EPs, on which he refined his production skills. Following the popularity of his own music, Martin also became a sought-after remixer for such acts as Lusine on Ghostly International or Dixon & Guy Gerber on Gerber’s newly found Rumours label. A loyal fan base of his meditative, somehow spiritual, yet powerful house sound grew over the years and made Martin an in demand producer and celebrated live act.

After the fertile collaboration on the “Uneasy Hiding Places“ EP (including the stand-out track “Brooklyn“) and a contribution on the third chapter of the “If This Is House I Want My Money Back“ compilation, Martin has found in Permanent Vacation the perfect home for his debut album.

On “Purposely Uncertain Field“ Lake People doesn’t fall into the trap of repeating himself or recreating a successful formula. Instead he puts all his musical knowledge and his experience into the eleven tracks of the album and expands his already rich sound universe. Above his straighter dancefloor aspects Martin elaborates his approaches to a certain mid 90’s electronica vibe and ambient-like soundscapes with a very cinematic feel to it. Thus he brilliantly manages the difficult task of creating a transcendent and consistent album without losing any tension over the full length.

Tracklist:

Last Magpie – Initial Losing Suki
Mehmet Aslan – Mechanical Turk (Courtesy Of Karpov not Kasparov) Huntleys & Palmers

Caribou says Thank You with THE LONGEST MIXTAPE : 1000 Songs For You

By | News, Radar | No Comments

Caribou has put together a mixtape, 1000 tracks long, He has described it as the musical history of his life, and it’s to say thank you to his fans.

THE LONGEST MIXTAPE : 1000 Songs For You

caribu

 

 

“The last few years of my life have been incredible, thanks in large part to all of you – so I’ve been thinking of how to say thank you.
As you can imagine, music has been a central love of my life since I was a teenager and over the years I’ve been introduced to a lot that has stayed with me. I’ve collected the majority of that music here – and I thought sharing it with you seemed like one way I could say thanks.

I’m sure some things are under-represented or over-represented, but roughly speaking this is a musical history of my life. Of course a lot of this music has come to me through my friends – thank you to Koushik, Kieran, Jeremy, Gary, Brandon, Jason, Sam, Ketan, Ryan, Toby and many others…
Also, please share music with me that you think I would like but is not included here, in the hope this becomes a dialogue rather than a monologue.

I suggest you listen to this on shuffle as I made no attempt to sequence these tracks – I just entered them as I browsed along the shelves in my record collection. If you see dead links or duplicate songs please tweet me @caribouband.

Due to a fault in youtube’s playlist coding if you embed this playlist it will be truncated down to 200 tracks. Hopefully they will resolve that at some point but for now if you want to hear all 1000 songs you need to listen at the link below.

 

I hope you find something to enjoy here. Thanks,”

Dan

Caribou plays Brixton Academy on 14 March and will headline Field Day on 6 June.

Panorama Bar 06 Mixed by Ryan Elliott-Free Download

By | News, Radar | No Comments

The Panorama Bar mix series on Ostgut Ton returns with volume 06, mixed and compiled by Panorama Bar and Berghain resident Ryan Elliott.

re

“I first played Panorama Bar on July 7th, 2007 and I have been playing there regularly since. I remember entering the club and feeling all those things everyone feels when they enter Berghain or Panorama Bar for the first time – excitement, joy, tension, fear… almost every emotion. I’m a lot more comfortable playing there now after all that time naturally, but all those emotions are still present in every set.

Panorama Bar has, to me, always stood for quality house music. I still play many of the same records there that I did in the beginning. Of course many new records have come and gone in those seven years of sets, but my musical direction has never changed. The title of the mix is “Panorama Bar 06 – Ryan Elliott”, it is my version of what Panorama Bar sounds like.

I knew I wanted to have roughly 30 to 40 tracks on the mix. Also, because the mix wouldn’t be a physical CD anymore, I wanted to have two EPs of exclusive material, to add a little more of a physical element. I started the A+R process for the exclusive material in February 2014. I received so much good music that we decided to put five tracks on each of the EPs, totaling 10 exclusive tracks. After that I started going through all my records and folders of music to pick the remaining material. In a perfect world, I could have used any song on the mix that I wanted. But, there is the agreement from the tracks’ owners to consider. Saying that, there were only 2 or 3 records that I wanted to use on the mix that I wasn’t able to for one reason or another.

The most important thing to me was that the mix actually sounds like a night at the club. That it would contain tracks that I’ve played in the club many times. I wanted the mix to contain a few of my Panorama Bar ‘classics’. Because of the new format of the mix, I was a little concerned that some of the older producers wouldn’t be up for giving their agreement for using their tracks, but for the most part I was pleasantly surprised. Besides a few classics, I really wanted a wide range of songs on the mix. Some old, some new and unreleased, some new and released, exclusives, etc.

I don’t view Panorama Bar 06 as just another ‘free downloadable mix’. This mix is available as a fully mastered wave file, includes full artwork and is complimented by two EPs of exclusive material. Vinyl still exists because it’s a fidelity and physical thing for DJs. DJs actually use it to do their jobs. We don’t see many tapes or 8-tracks being sold now and the CD will soon go the same way. I made the mix as long as it should be, without thinking about time limitations. We can do that now!”

– Ryan Elliott, Berlin, August 2014 –

This mix is dedicated to my friends.
