Santiago de Chile: Video & EP “Reyes” von MIDISET

Wir blicken mal wieder über den Teich zu unseren Freunden nach Chile. Aus Santiago de Chile kam uns dieser Tage das neue Video von MIDISET zugeflogen. Erschienen als zweites Releases auf dem jungen Indie-Labels Cordon Industrial, einem Sublabel von Diamante Records also der Heimat von Daniel Klauser, Imaabs, Tomas Urquieta und Lost Generation.

Das Video zu “Reyes” von der gleichnamigen EP  huldigt der verstaubten Schönheit und dem Charme zerfallender Viertel. Es wird dokumentiert: verlassene Strassen, vergängliche Nicht-Orte, und ein kreatives Publikum das sich konstant von den Tabula-Rasa-Moves der großen Immobilienprojekte bedroht sieht.

Es ist das Ambiente in dem der Sound von MIDISET entsteht, meist in nächtlichen endlos Sessions. Das Bandprojekt bestehend aus Felipe Cifra S. und seinen Freunden beweihräuchert das Leben in den “toten”, Gebäuden dieser vernachlässigten Viertel Santiagos. Sowohl der Ort als auch die Musik unterwerfen sich hier einer ständigen Transformation. Mit Synthesizern und Drum Machines lässt sich MIDISET auf die Inspiration des bedrohlich-schönen Ambiente ein. Schwelgende Sounds mit Fläche und Tiefe entstehen. Das Ergebnis ist Elektronische Musik mit Hang zu Noise, Synth Pop und House. Aber hört selber!

Also we are very proud to present some of our Cologne local heroes: Sweet melancholic vibes coming from electrosoul-band Ray Novacane (their Reminiscence EP just dropped) and some serious sexiness by bass-boss HADE.

Not to forget about our Mash It Up! homies: Our last DJ-guest Dinamarca <3 , swedish tropicalists COCOTAXI and funky globetrotter Captain Planet.

New Daferwa Mix Online


Hey Folks!

Daferwa is taking off to Mexico from 6th October to 11th of November with a mission: see his missed familia, play some nights, eat some real tacos and getting the latest news on what’s happening from Tenochtitlan to Aztlán. It’s been a while that Daferwa recorded a mix on the fly. But some flavours inspired him to prepare the one hour trip he decided to call Daferwaton since dembowish syncopation is one of his favourite. Also he didn’t miss the twerkish moment that’s going on right now. But he’s feeling it even more when accordeon lines take him straight to Dallas where la raza is getting down like that. Also Daferwaton is introducing some exclusive remixes from two young german producers: Motin from Dresden and Ghetto Vanessa from Bünde. A big GRACIAS goes out to all the producers and artist on the mix.

MIU!sik #11 – sweet as candy



This weeks MIU!sik selection is as colorful as a giant lollypop and as sweet as fluffy cotton candy: João Brasil sugar-coating Chet Fakers “Talk is cheap”, Dany F from Colombia licking on some delicious bolitas de tamarindo, typical sweets from Palenque and Klaves from Poland handing out warm beer with honey and his new single “People”. Can it get any sweeter? Oooooh, yeah: Cologne based synth-pop duo Heartbeat adding some fresh vibes to Brandy & Monicas “The Boy is mine”, Agent Lexie and Symbiz playing around with some caribbean flavors and El Búho from Amsterdam flirting with beautiful cumbia grooves.




MIU!sik #10 – globalicious


Can’t afford to take your girl to the Bahamas? The dog ate your air tickets to Miami? Your boss won’t grant you leave to get naked at the Ballermann beach? No need to get frustrated, we are about to take you on a adventurous ride! This weeks MIU!sik selection is a crazy trip round the globe of club music: It starts with some crazy steel pan madness delivered by Hataah from Hungary remixed by Motin from Dresden/Germany. Then Clap! Clap! from Italy unwraps some furious drums and heavy afro-trap-styles from his forthcoming album ‘Tayi Bebba’. On that level KingDouDou from France transforms the ‘Lions King’ theme into a bassed up cumbia villera. Beeing turned on already Street_Ritual and Tcheep seduce you with some spicy oriental flavors. On top of this Alfonso Lunar from Monterrey/Mexico is trying to get you drunk with some curious pre hispanic tribal. Wow, that escalated quickly! Thank god SkepticMusica from Puerto Rico is there to cool you down with some chilly hip hop moods and Xhjyl from the US is handing you a fresh lil cocktail with sweet brazilian juices. To make it a perfect one our Mash It Up! homie Daniel Klauser from Chile played around with some dreamy sounds from legendary Victor Jara – a perfect outro to a magic journey!

So pack your g-string and jump on the boat!
