Premiere: Listen to Lust Fund’s ‘Split’ EP out on The Umbrella

Williamsburg. A landscape in constant transition. What was once a derelict wasteland shared by starving artists and the Hasidim, is now a luxury playground for the inherently rich. In a land of limitless trust funds, where everyone’s a DJ and nobody pays their rent, two men stand alone, dripping not in gold, but in sex.

The Lust Fund is flush, and whether bull or bear, it grows steadily. The passion project of Tom Snares and Ariel Black, Lust Fund came about not of desire, but of necessity. After months of laborious nights and steamy rendezvouses, the first physical manifestation of their love has come to fruition…

This Split EP is the first release of Lust Fund on The Umbrella. Although a group effort, it contains two solo tracks from each member.

Q&A and Global Vibe Radio 068 feat. Synthek Live at KHIDI

Synthek is a Berlin based DJ and producer, owner of Natch Records and STK imprint. Always seeking for new influences, over the past years the style of his sets and productions has faced a constant evolution, focusing on deep rhythmics and powerful, introspective vibes.

Following few successful EPs on Natch Records, he released his debut album Unwise, in collaboration with label partner Audiolouis. Unwise, seen as their last co-produced effort, got consecutively remixed by Polar Inertia, Antigone and Varg among others. Synthek started curating the booking of New Faces Wednesdays at Tresor Berlin in 2014, becoming a respected presence behind the decks of the legendary venue and especially so for his closing sets. The idea of creating STK, a self titled imprint and home of his own productions only, gives him the freedom to experiment new approaches to music production and reshape his signature sound. The initial wave of 3 EPs entitled VERSE, launched in July 2015, brought him to look slightly away from the dance floor, and finally orienting towards mind-twisting and psychedelic compositions. Beside releases on STK, since his last appearance on Attic Music, Synthek has released new material such as his MRI EP on Russian label Wunderblock, a remix alongside Svreca on Spanish imprint Redpoint Alert, and a contribution for a compilation on OVUNQVE.

This year Synthek released Transitions of Life on Natch Records, his first solo LP. The 11-tracker came out on April 18th, the unfolding of a two-year transformational period that saw Synthek cross along rough roads and tribulations to reveal an intimate personal journey of revelation through emotional downshift, spiritual upheaval and cerebral quandary.

Synthetk is this week’s guest on Global Vibe Radio, where he presents the last 3 hours of his 7 hour set at KHIDI in Georgia from earlier in 2017. We also took the chance to chat with him about projects past, present and future. Enjoy the mix and read on for the exclusive interview!

His various releases are among respected labels such as Konsequent Records, Nowhere, Etruria Beat, N2B Black Series, Planet Rhythm.

Premiere: Listen to Monty The Fly’s “Loop 19.1” on iTech Sound System

Bristol native Monty the Fly is as unpredictable a producer as you’re likely to encounter. Regardless of whether he’s turning his hand to off-kilter electronica or deep, sombre tones, his is a sound that’s always rich in intricate workings and captivating motifs. For his latest number, he perks up on iTech Sound System, a Russian label and collective that has played host to a number of local and international talents. A straight up, dance floor inspired effort, Peter’s Werbs features 4 sumptuous house tracks, each of which is as intriguing as the next.

Opening up is the sounds of “11000101101”. A clever tool full to the brim with haunting soundscapes and brash drums, its appeal is characterized by its underlying melodies and a penchant or off-kilter sounds. Next up is ‘L Don’t L’, an eerie number that’s notable for its muted vocals and triply melodies. A dark but dexterous track, it showcases the producer’s knack for the weirder side of the spectrum with considerable distinction.
