John Roberts live at Trouw

John Roberts live at Trouw
11.12.2014

Okay, you all know about the proverbial elevator that got stuck and had Kraftwerk in the company of George Clinton. But what if that same elevator got stuck with Mark Hollis, a sedated Adonis, Bonny Prince Billy plus Chez Damier and Ron Trent in it? To make it really packed, let’s squeeze in The Smiths as well.

Sounds a bit forced, but this cross-pollination is somehow a way to give you an idea of John Roberts’ music. The young gentleman might have never been influenced by these people, but his releases for Hamburg’s prime outfits Dial and Laid or his very first 12" for John Daly’s Feelmusic resonate tender indie moments as much as the more contemplative history of house music.
Asked by Carsten Jost, Pantha Du Prince and Lawrence to be the first American artist on the influential German Dial Records imprint, his work for them has received major accolades for its distinct and refined aesthetic.
His debut album Glass Eights and follow-up Fences proved that Roberts is an artist with a vision, able to spread his experimental sonics and loping grooves across the LP format to create a rewarding and danceable listen.

As well as starting his own label Brunette Editions, Roberts is also a co-founder of a print publication The Travel Almanac, which explores the mobile lifestyles of artists, filmmakers, and musicians, reflecting in some ways his own schedule, performing regularly in Europe’s preeminent clubs.

Listen to John Robert's set from Trouw, Amsterdam here. Recorded by RBMA.

Christian Löffler remixes Hundred's

Christian Löffler remixes Hundred's
27.11.2014

The story behind Hundreds' Aftermath Remixes EP is a long and convoluted one. Here's the shortened version: in 2012, the pop duo (siblings Eva and Philipp Milner) found out that Dixon had released a bootleg remix of their song "Machine." They called him out on it, and he apologized, saying that he'd make him a real remix sometime. This year, Hundreds released their album Aftermath, and promptly called up Dixon—along with artists like The/Das, Christian Löffler, Robag Wruhme, and Brandt Brauer Frick, to make a full EP of remixes. Dixon ducked out of the deal this time around, but everyone else delivered. So here's the final product from The/Das—who turn "Please Rewind" into an icy, menacing beast—and Christian Löffler, who put his chilled-out, introspective spin on "Ten Headed Beast."

XLR8R reviews Lawrence

XLR8R reviews Lawrence
25.11.2014

Lawrence never does the same trick done twice (though certain synth sounds and hooks will be familiar to anyone familiar with his music), which makes for an innocent-sounding album that is far more captivating than ambient's usual background fodder. From the gentle patter of hand drums to aqueous piano notes, from trilling string sounds to rich xylophone patterns, A Day in the Life is a delightfully escapist listen that is bound to soothe and seduce even the busiest of minds.

XLR8R reviews Lawrence's latest album, 'A Day in the Life'. Read the full review here.
