Frank Music – Johannes Albert – Giovanni Frizzante (incl. Prins Thomas Diskomiks) – FM12023


FM12023_AAFM12023_BB



Tataaa! A full on 12“ Disco EP coming your way via the notorious Frank Music label. Johannes Albert – in Italy they call him Giovanni Alberto – plays the rattle bass and bangs out the sweetest piano solo you will hear all year. „Giovanni Frizzante“ it is. Truth is he just watched a „how to make italo disco in ableton“ tutorial and listened to another 238 Lauer tracks for inspiration on top. Accompanied by a more sample-laden arp-disco tune that won’t give you any cure. Added for good measure? Jep, Prins Thomas Diskomiks on the flip in all its glory. What could possibly go wrong?

Gråtone – Audun Kleive & Jan Bang – The Periphery of a Building – GRTN03


grtn03_Frontgrtn03_Back
grtn-03_AAgrtn-03_A



Listing somewhere between the cognitive and the corporeal comes the third release from Gratone.“The Periphery of a Building”, a live remix work featuring long-time collaborators Audun Kleive on percussion and Jan Bang on live sampling sees the young Norwegian label expound on the territories between extended jazz and the dance floor through a four track LP.
Veterans Audun Kleive and Jan Bang tap into something innate that moves perpendicular to the techno ethos perpetuated by the label’s previous releases.
“The Periphery of a Building”, is a work that brings the past into the present and draws a red thread between genres. It juxtaposes disparate ideas between the dance floor and jazz, and ensnares itself in the tangled web of tradition and progress in a bold indefnable musical dialect. Upholding the ethos of Gratone by negating expectation “Periphery of a Building” also calls in a new era for the young, but fertile label.
“Periphery of a Building” is Kleive and Bang reconsidering live Punkt remixes* of Etenesh Wassie & Mathieu Sourisseau, AtomTM and Clarinet Factory & Floex. In their selection of source material for the Gratone LP, they eradicate, and then reconstruct tradition.


*The Punkt live remix concept puts third-party musicians, producers and composers in a real-time remix situation during a Punkt festival live show.


Fiona Talkington:
Stian Balducci’s Gratone (grey tone) label inhabits an exquisite genre-defying world.The latest release features two of Norway’s legendary, pioneering musicians, live sampling guru and co-director of the globally acclaimed Punkt Festival Jan Bang, and Audun Kleive, a musician whose work over the decades has repositioned the language of drumming. Together they forge an exquisite, adventurous path, as delicate as chamber music, as powerful as rock, and engage with samples with respect, a spirit of adventure and a creative vision which is simply inspiring.

True Rotary Recordings – QNA – Tabor Session – TRR 004


TRR004_ATRR004_B



We are proud to present QNA and the first release stemming from Quarion and Joel Alter combining forces. Meeting years ago in Berlin, it is ironic that they first made it to the studio after Joel’s relocation to Copenhagen. Recorded in Berlin, “Tabor Session” was born – a hypnotizing piece of modern techno fusing driving beats with a myriad of synths and eerie sounds in a complete balance. Like an ensemble of dancers on the verge of loosing control. While “Memory Lane” shows the melancholic mindset of the artists “Sansui Cruise” is full of playfulness and raw bouncy beats in a tribal groove.

Switzerland often gets mistaken for Sweden. Joel Alter and Yanneck Salvo also have a lot of common ground. Growing up in the 80’s listening to Jean Michel Jarre, embracing hip-hop and black music as teenagers and finding the way into dancemusic through drum and bass. But if it wasn’t for a growing friendship and a mutual sense of humour this record would probably not have been in our hands today.

True Rotary Recordings is run by Joel Alter and Ena Cosovic out of Copenhagen.
Stemming from a mutual appreciation of the combination of raw techno and seductive sounds, the label is a natural development of their musical and personal partnership.
True Rotary Recordings represent their musical vision and the vibe that they love. Keeping it raw and genuine.
