Q&A and Premiere: Ennio Colaci Releases “Stereoscope” EP on Berlin’s Dreiklang

“Stereoscope” is Ennio Colaci’s debut on Berlin’s Dreiklang, following the label’s characteristic triangular composition with Tadeo and David Hausdorf remixes completing the EP package. Having had their first release in 2015, Dreiklang marks their third record after releases from Edit Select and Och. It comes from Italian producer Ennio Colaci who produces alongside the owner of Bosconi Records, Fabio Della Torre, under the alias Minimono.

Ennio’s Stereoscope steers away from Minimono’s disco flavored house orientated sounds, bringing a warm palette of textures in the form of soft noise, percs, dubby delayed chords and a sub kick and bass relationship reminiscent of early dub techno records. Alongside the title track there are two remixes from David Hausdorf and Tadeo. Tadeo roughens Stereoscope up and introduces a more techy sound, while David Hausdorf dries up the original, moving the focus to the dub chord.

Stereoscope on Dreiklang is a 180g, vinyl only release surfacing in handcrafted record sleeves by Berlin based artist Nils Altland on the 14th of March 2017. 6AM had a chat with Ennio in honor of the release and premiere of the title track, which you can listen to below.

Premiere: Tigerlight ‘Tongue Tied’ (Rain City Riot Remix) on Tigerlight Musik

‘Tongue Tied’ is the new single from Tigerlight, hailing the launch of her exciting record label, Tightlight Musik. A potent slab of sassy electronica, ‘Tongue Tied’ is composed with unique textures and vibrations recorded from the streets of East Berlin, then deliciously drizzled with Tigerlight’s sultry vocals and underpinned with her signature deep bass rumbles. This package comes with three tasty guest remixes – after Tigerlight and Slamboree’s sell out UK November tour, Mike Freer was an obvious choice for remix duties adding heavy break beat wizardry to the project he has delivered a floor banging electro fused monster. Cinematic Deep House/Garage hero Rain City Riot (Toolroom/Armada), cooks up a colossal Jackin’ house bomb, primed to shake down the peak time floors and Tracy Rhodes (aka My System Echo / Classic) works up a deep and disco tinged groover, teased with infectious melodies and percussive beats.

“Electronic music is so beautifully full of different colours with a multitude of shades that it would be a shame to not being able to play with many at once and watch as they create new and exciting intensities. With ‘Tongue Tied’ I sought to blend and draw out new textures and musical pathways, working with individual elements to weave sounds and stories together.” – Tigerlight

Premiere: Listen to Lupe Fuentes’ “Hit It” EP, Released on In The Loop

6AM and In The Loop are proud to present the premiere of label boss @LupeFuentes’ latest EP, ‘Hit It’. With early support from Joseph Capriati, Roger Sanchez, Baggi Begovic, Denny, Chris Fortier, Golf Clap, and more, both tracks on the EP, “Hit It” and “One Time,” continue to define the trademark sound of both Lupe Fuentes and her In the Loop brand.

Chugging stacatto basslines and stabby synths permeate the almost ’90s-feel “Hit It”, with traces of vocal tags reminding the listener of Slick Rick’s familiar notes. On the other hand the dark, smoother tones of “One Time” are more appropriate for the sunrise hours of a groovy terrace after-hours.

Q&A and Premiere: Aggborough Discusses No Real Value’s Musical Ethos and “The Rhubarb Triangle” EP

The Rhubarb Triangle is an area in Yorkshire, England, that is considered the forced rhubarb centre of the world, and it was there where William Green, aka Aggborough, captured the set of various field recordings which now forms the backbone of No Real Value’s latest release. For those not familiar with No Real Value, it is a label whose 12″ outputs all include pieces of music by Aggborough himself, as well as other leftfield underground electronic music producers, based around a particularly unique set of field recording samplings sourced by Aggborough.

No Real Value’s second outing focused on metal detecting, while this third release pinpoints the location of the field samplings and uses that, as well as  the characteristic Yorkshire dialect and wildlife, to produce a stunning four-track vinyl release. Each piece includes various sounds captured during a recent trip to the Martin Parr exhibition at the Hepworth Wakefield, as well as to the Yorkshire sculpture park the next day. The listener will find ambient sounds from the gallery and wildlife from the park, as well as other human sound recordings juxtaposed against those of giant metal sculptures vibrating against the wind.

6AM talked with Green in honor of the release, and presents to you the official premiere of Ford Foster’s “Ramblers (Set On Fire)” from the EP, which you can find for purchase on Bandcamp.

Q&A and Premiere: Dunmore Park Releases Debut “At Midnight” EP on Substation Recordings

This past week Andrew Williams aka Dunmore Park released his first soulful composition on Substation Recordings, a four-track EP titled At Midnight. Born in Edmonton, Canada, Williams is embodies the definition of a true electronic music devotee: he is the co-founder of the city’s first electronic music production school, Night Vision Music Academy, as well as Western Canada’s first electronic-based music convention, the Alberta Electronic Music Conference, and all of this is on top of his projects as an artist. His latest such project, At Midnight, is his attempt to combine both classical and modern notes, a feat he accomplishes to brilliant results by producing a subtle warm journey from Canadian winter to the blooms of spring season.

Each of the four original tracks that form the release reflect various experiences of Williams life, including the music he was exposed to living in Europe as a child, his travels to ancient cities as he went through his formative years and more recently his exploration of Canada as an adult. As such, At Midnight is a musical narrative that takes the listener through Williams’ own life journey, one that begins with with deep melodies and emotions and ends with dominating basslines and mystery.

Stream the exclusive premiere of At Midnight below and read on for our talk with Williams, where we discuss the release, his life in Canada and more.
