Melt! Festival 2011

08:24 PM

As already in the year of  2009 and 2010 we presented you the most important and current information directly from the Melt!-Festival. In contrast to the last years the festival returned the his roots. But this wasn’t a reason for the people to stay away. And so the melt! was sold out early ago. Despite of the electronical renaissance with Paul Kalkbrenner, The Koletzkis, DJ Kotze, Boys Noize and many more the headliner were well know Indie-Legeneds: Pulp. This gallery will take you on a short tour through all days and stages at the Melt!.

The Very Best: song & remixes for free

08:05 PM

the very best

Some time ago we introduced you to The Very Best [Myspace] (Radioclit with Esau Mwamwaya). Nevertheless it’s still more than five painful weeks until their first record will be released on September the 4th. And I guess the less of you are living in the US so they could watch the trio on their first tour.

So we had to find another way to shorten the waiting time for you and found it by presenting you a very own download special around the song “Warm Heart Of Africa” taken straight from the album of the same title. Besides the wonderful original with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, we have two remixes of the song done by Metronomy and  Architecture In Helsinki for you.

First ones gave it a new Disco-Funk-alike arragement in reward for Radioclit’s two flashing re-works of “Radio Ladio” (still avaible at Radioclit’s Myspace page). Architecture In Helsinki answered to Very Best’s sample of their “Heart It Races” in “Kamphopo” (featured on the The Very Best Mixtape) with an lovely relaxed instrumental mix. What a nice community.
