Chaouche performing "Forgetting Marcel" at Sofar Bristol on November 7th, 2018
Iceland’s latest discovery Russian Girls stepping up for a fierce video. ‘Bíóbabb’ a co-production between Russian Girls and Kraftgalli raises the temperature somewhat, a quirky effected vocal on top of a tight rhythm section and those trademark posk punk synth sounds.
Leifur James' debut album 'A Louder Silence' is both spacious and thought-provoking, energetic yet restrained, brimming with nuanced electronic instrumentals, dubby synths, and jazz breaks — creating an array of rich textures, complemented occasionally by James’ own soulful vocals.
When „Kalif Storch” was released back in May, the first original Modeselektor track since 2015, you could feel the duo’s urge for immediate, crafty techno. This is where they came from. "Wealth" on the other hand is a reminder of how many other things they are made of - it is at once an epitome of Modeselektor’s past ventures in genre-crossing sound as well as their reboot as a duo with fresh ideas and big appetite for bass. The track builds on Modeselektor’s characteristically bold collaborative spirit, reviving the Berlin/London axis with a bass-heavy, synth-led tune featuring Flohio. Hailing from South London, Flohio is one of UK’s uprising artists, having already worked with the likes of L-Vis 1990 or Gaika.
