Sounds of Summer With Cadenza Records

Where’s a good day party when you need one? I mean, I love the atmosphere of a good club and all, but on a nice Sunday afternoon, getting down in the sun to some great house tunes with a cold beer just can’t be beat. If there’s one label that really gives off great summer vibes, it’s Luciano’s Cadenza Records.

Best New Music: Dominik Eulberg’s “Diorama”

Dominik Eulberg has just released his fourth full length on Traum. I haven’t given it a complete listen yet (waiting for the vinyl), but it seems promising! It sounds like a cross between Pantha du PrinceUlrich Schnauss and Kollektiv Turmstrasse, with Eulberg’s soundscape-like techno.

Best New Music: Robag Wruhme’s “Thora Vukk” LP

After hearing Wruhme’s “Thora Vukk 12″ Edit” on Pampa a few months back, I couldn’t have been more happy to hear the news the he was working on a full LP project. As DJ Koze (head of Pampa) told him: “If you’re in the flow right now, then produce an album!” I am very thankful he said this. 6 months in the making, Thora Vukk combines bright and dark elements into a seamless story.  The more upbeat club tracks are emphasized by their separation. Soundscape “bridges” (brücke in german) force the listener to refocus his/her ear before being lead back into Wruhme’s throbbing basslines.

If you’re already familiar with Wruhme’s work, you’ll find a  mix of comfort and wonder in this album. With the deep and dubby bass lines fighting for space with the higher pitched clankings, the upbeat and smooth melodies come in to create a perfect balance. “Pnom Gobal” is my favorite – it hits me right in the soul. More on the pop side, the warm strings bring me straight up into the clouds. Luckily, the rest of the album keeps me up there.
