Various Artists - Work

Sep 29, 2014 op017Nearing its first birthday, Other People is celebrating the only way it knows how: Work. The label has put out new material every Sunday since it launched with last year's Trust compilation, and the culminating Work comp doesn't break that streak-consisting almost entirely of new material from Other People's artist roster, and a few remixes from some special guests. Work is not, however, an uncooked mash of music. It's sequencing is deliberate and its selection purposefully not encompassing. In fact, Work is more an album than anything else.
Kicking off the affair is SoulRead the whole story

Tin Man - Ode

Sep 29, 2014 atcd04What does a rave sound like the next day? The strobe lights in a dark warehouse, the pounding kick, the blur of ecstatic faces lead to a morning-after emptiness, all fade into memories of the friends you once had. On Ode, Tin Man (proper name Johannes Auvinen) explores this feeling, offering tracks which possess an exhausted joy, the aural equivalent of the stretch of time beginning when the last record is played and stretching on towards the doleful contemplation of last night's unmade sheets.

Appropriately, Tin Man's melancholic dance music is more club-ready than ever. TheRead the whole story

The scene has been set by two lead singles: ‘Rush’ featuring Tobias Buch - and ‘Sylvia’ featuring CTM. Moving away from previous 70s disco inspired sound, Kasper explores new terrain in contemporary, melancholic synth pop; his productions merging themselves into a multi coloured soundscape with echoes from PostRead the whole story

Marko Fürstenberg - Ghosts From The Past

Sep 12, 2014 ORN032

Marko Fürstenberg – “Ghosts From The Past” In certain ever-present moments, the ghosts from the past are following us. And sometimes they do so in order to gently help us on our way. We can find this theme on Marko Fürstenberg's latest release “Ghosts From The Past”. Marko, currently living in Leipzig, has been experimenting with sound since 1999.

Rooted in classical Dubtechno, he not only knows how to interpret it, he's extending it further with his own personal aesthetic. In 2001, his first releases on a number of netlabels

Kalipo - Yaruto

Sep 12, 2014
ANTIME010LPKalipo is Jakob Häglsperger from Berlin who devotes himself to experimental electronica. His debut album Yaruto follows a series of remixes and contributions to compilations released by Antime and Stiff Little Spinners. On it, Häglsperger tries to create a both unique and timeless sound that takes cues from dance music, downbeat and Gamelan traditions alike. Making use of his wide array of analogue synthesizers, a Rhodes piano, a metallophone and guitars, Häglsperger is creating the abstract narrative of an impersonal biography by creating moods that correspond

Media and DJ comments

Stefan Goldmann — “Industry” on MACRO

WDR1 Live (DE): “On air at Hans Nieswandt show. ”

Beat Magazin (DE): “Feature. ”

CHRY FM (CDA): “ Wonderful sound designs - mysterious yet immersive. ”

DJ Broadcast (NL): “Online feature. ”

Electronic Beats (UK/DE): “ Imagine a world in which musicians boast about a lack of soun design in their productions. Hard to fathom? This may change. Stefan Goldmann explores the taboos surrounding pre-programmed settings. ”

EQ Magazine (UK): “ Great and Interesting idea for an album - really like the results. ”

Faze Magazin (DE): “ Stefan Goldmann ist dafür bekannt, deutlich experimenteller an elektronische Musik heranzutreten als andere Künstler. Seien es leere Vinyls zum selbst gestalten oder ein Auftritt in einem Tempel. Nun folgt mit „Industry“ ein Album, das komplett aus Presets von Synthesizern aus den 90ern entstanden ist. Das Prinzip dahinter ist, die unbekannten und teils gescheiterten Voreinstellungen zu nutzen, um ein völlig anderes Bild von der Entwicklung elektronischer Musik zu zeichnen. Für das Album benutzte Goldmann den Yamaha TG33, den Technics WSA1R und den Korg Triton Rack. Sie alle zeugen von vermuteten Bewegungen der Musikszene, die dann doch nicht eintrafen. Darauf basiert der Klang von „Industry“. ”

Frieze Magazine (UK / DE): “ Feature. ”

Funkhaus Europa Radio (DE): “News presentation on air. Groove Magazin (DE) Feature. HHV Magazin (DE) Feature. ”

HHV Magazin (DE): “Feature. ”

Klubbers (ES): “Es ahora cuando con gran placer uno se adentra en este 11 cortes recién salido de la síntesis de Stefan Goldmann titulado INDUSTRY donde de nuevo la creatividad, musicalidad y sentir especial de este productor germano nos da una nueva lección de cómo entiende (y secundamos) que se puede presentar una factura sobresaliente de música salida de máquinas con estructuras de canciones creadas y sentidas para el disfrute, con secuencias más allá del cuatro por cuatro y con la experimentación de ciertas máquinas por bandera, con un sonido, mastering y mezcla perfectos, donde con la frescura de siempre nos hace evolucionar en un paraíso de creación analógica y síntesis compleja, alejada de modismos y con una fuerte carga personal a sus espaldas. Diferente y evocador desde el track inicial hasta momentos épicos y atmosféricos con temas como “Aureola” que van componiendo un paisaje sonoro para escuchar de una sentada sin encontrar un resquicio al aburrimiento y en la que vuelve a dar en el centro de la diana de un producto, claro, conciso, elemental y maravilloso que todo el mundo debería escuchar por el bien de su capacidad de síntesis personal salida de una aparatología simple y una mente privilegiada. ”

Lectures & Workshops:: “ Stefan Goldmann will present "Industry" and "Presets" at Universität der Künste Berlin (lecture, Techno Studies symposium), Folkwang Universität der Künste Essen (lecture & workshop), Goethe Institut Japan (4 workshops) & at Robert Johnson Theorie Offenbach. The book "Presets - Digital Shortcuts to sound" will be released in November by Bookworm UK. ”

Meoko (UK): “The Art of Sound - Ten best cover artworks selection, Stefan Goldmann 'Industry' = #2. ”

Musikexpress (DE): “Goldmann ist ja nicht nur Konzeptkünstler, sondern auch ein Schlingel. Die Sounds, die er auf INDUSTRY benutzt, kommen nicht etwa aus Hipster-Instrumenten wie der Roland 909 oder dem Yamaha DX7 sondern von unspektakulären Snythesizern und Workstations, die in einer Sackgasse der Instrumenten-Evolution gelandet sind. Das Album ... erzählt auf einer höheren Ebene eine neue Geschichte. Der Gebrauch der Soundbibliotheken allein ergibt noch keine Kunst, es bedarf schon eines Künstlers, der die Sounds auswählt, collagiert und zueinander in Beziehung setzt. Goldmann holt aus diesen Vintage-Klängen das Maximale heraus. ”

Noice! Radio (UK): “Outstanding album effort by Stefan. The Bribe 2011 and Lunar Caustic are both awesome.... we really like the way the album is presented. ”

Posivision Magazine (JP): “Hendecagon - make a trip! ”

Radio 2SER Sydney (AUS): “On air at Down Low Disco show. ”

Radio Luxembourg 100.7 (L): “ 1 hour feature and interview by Yves Stephany. ”

Radio Student (SI): “Featured on The Smudge Tool radio show. ”

Ransom Note (UK): “Stefan Goldmann takes us on a tour of his Japanese workstation synths in our Track by Track feature. ”

roove Magazin (DE): “Feature. ”

Sound & Recording (JP): “ Review. ”

Soundwall (IT): “Stefan Goldmann è di gran lunga una delle menti migliori all’interno della scena elettronica odierna. Lo dice la sua attività da producer, lo dice quella da label manager, lo dice anche quella da editorialista. La sua ultima impresa riunisce un po’ tutte le sue qualità ed attività in un unico progetto: il Goldmann acuto teorico, il Goldmann producer, il Goldmann giornalista. Progetto che si divide in due parti: da un lato un libro, “PRESETS”, dall’altro, un vero e proprio album: il titolo è – beffardamente – “Industry”, il concept produttivo è molto interessante perché si tratterà di un lavoro composto esclusivamente di preset presi da tre workstation semi-dimenticate. ”

The Drone (FR): “ Pour la réalisation d'Industry, brillante pochade semi théorique dont la contrainte a consisté à reprendre ses propres tubes en n'utilisant que les sons d'usine de synthétiseurs laissés brut dans le multipiste, Stefan Goldmann prend un peu d'avance sur la mode en utilisant exclusivement 3 stations de travail typique de la fin des années 80 au milieu des années 90. Pourquoi se lancer dans un tel projet? Parce qu'au-delà des considérations critiques et esthétiques par collier de 100 - Industry fait évidemment quelque chose d'étrange au cerveau: il donne l'impression de plonger la tête dans le bain du début des années 90, quand ces sons à la modernité très problématique fabriquaient le tissu sonore de notre quotidien, en nous donnant à écouter des morceaux musiques qui n'auraient pour la plupart pas pu voir le jour à l'époque. ”

Triple R (AUS): “Stylin’ show by Ennio Styles - “It sounds good and that’s all that counts.“ ”
