Roman Flügel says Happiness Is Happening

Roman Flügel says Happiness Is Happening
03.07.2014

Roman Flügel's next album, Happiness Is Happening, will see release through Dial Records on September 1st.

It's the second full-length Flügel has released under his real name, following 2011's well-received Fatty Folders. "Fatty Folders embraced you with a bunch of flowers; Happiness Is Happening is asking for a discussion," he told RA.

Flügel's close friend Gerd Janson, who wrote the album's press release, says Happiness Is Happening reflects "a life that has been spent in techno, house and its various mutations and archetypes with a sensibility for pop music, a consciousness of indie culture and an affinity for the avant-garde."

Following an in-depth Exchange with the Frankfurt favourite last month, we caught up with him via email this week to discuss the new LP:

How would you say this record differs from your last effort, Fatty Folders? You mentioned that you dropped the jazzy touches that featured on that last LP, right?

Yes, the album's basic groove is a little different. It is more machine-driven, no bongos this time. You will hear a piano here and there but probably under a surface of distortion.

Tell us about the album's title?

I was carrying that title with me for a while. We're all lucky that happiness is happening here and there, but it's definitely nothing that usually stays for long. You can't buy it with money and you won't find it in magazines, as the brilliant Graham Coxon suggested. I'm always surprised how quick these happy moments slip away but it's definitely worth looking for the happiness within you to make it stay longer.

And what about the cover art?

I'm totally in love with the artwork! It's a painting by Sergej Jensen, a German artist who finished at the Städel Artschool in Frankfurt years ago and now lives in New York. I got to know him back in the day and feel very honoured by his contribution. The painting reflects exactly the ambiguity of the album's title.

It's the second LP you've released under your given name. Do you think you're now less inclined to produce records under different aliases?

You never know. I'd like to keep it as it is for a while now since I don't want to cause too much confusion. But slipping into a imaginary character by using a different alias can help at a certain point.

Tracklist
01. Connecting The Ghost
02. Friendship Song
03. Stuffy
04. Your War Is Over
05. Wilkie
06. Tense Times
07. Parade
08. We Have A Nice Life
09. Occult Levitation
10. All That Matters

Talaboman debut with Sideral

Talaboman debut with Sideral
30.06.2014

John Talabot and Axel Boman's collaborative Talaboman project will release its debut EP, Sideral, on August 11th.

The record is a joint venture between the two artists' respective labels: Hivern Discs and Studio Barnhus. It features one original cut, "Sideral," which first appeared on Talabot's lauded DJ-Kicks mix in 2013. That mix was the first sighting of Talaboman: since then the pair have DJ'd together under the name, including a slot at RA's party in Barcelona earlier this month. The track has also been remixed by Cologne producer Matt Karmil, who has already chalked up appearances on PNN and Beats In Space Records this year (including his debut album.)

Sideral is dedicated to Aleix "Sideral" Vergés, a popular DJ in Barcelona's underground circle who died in 2006. "A truly fearless and idiosyncratic DJ, Sideral mixed genres wildly and brilliantly, uniting in the dance people from all kinds of musical backgrounds," accompanying notes for the record say. "At a time when few DJs dared cross musical borders, he was a real inspiration for both the Barca native Talabot and the young Swede Boman, who lived in the city during the peak of Sideral's reign." The vinyl version will land on August 11th, with the digital release following on August 25th.
