Responsible for one of last year’s most strikingly beautiful ambient albums, Sad City talks up debuting his new live set at our Campfire Headphase stage at Farr Festival and goes into his working relationship with Emotional Response founder Chuggy and Nick Williams, head of R&S Records sub-label Meda Fury, which led to the release of ‘Shapes In Formation’.
On his new album for the ever consistent Emotional Response, Osnabrück-based producer Cass. combines the profoundness of his most opulent ambient pieces with the sleekness of deep-house and far-reaching kosmische ascensions, not forgetting some newly-incorporated pop accents. Today we’re proud to bring you the full LP stream, exclusively through our channels.
Gary Caruth’s debut solo album as Sad City, released on July 29th via Emotional Response and Meda Fury, makes for a particularly enticing journey into the producer’s elegiac post-urban universe, allowing his supple blends of ambient and breathable electronica to fully develop. Stream the brightly-hued ‘Smoke’ within.
Montezumas Rache and Dominik Von Senger’s soberly-titled ‘EP’ has a lot to offer with its mind-bending elixir of eerie funk, ambientish tropes and drawn bars of mesmeric kraut grooves. We sat back with the triplet to find out more about their one-off studio session, MZR’s raison d’être and asked them to select some of their most influential cuts.
We caught up with Juan, Guido and Kyle as they discuss the album’s creation and raison d’être, studio battle-gear and all-time Kraut and Kosmische classics. We’re also proud to present the LP opener ‘Alpha Moon’ in full stream – a far-stretching mesmeric scud fueled on stellar synth motifs and a relentless bass comber. Lock in!
