RA does it again - DJ set by Oliver Hafenbauer


"Conventional wisdom dictates that people produce music and then get DJs gigs relative to the level of success their records attain. Oliver Hafenbauer isn't a famous producer, but his behind-the-scenes work at Robert Johnson, the highly respected Offenbach venue, has given him a platform to show just how great a DJ he is. If anything, his role as a music director at the club is arguably more complementary to DJing than making music, closely considering, as he does each day, who and what moves a discerning dance floor. Hafenbauer also takes care of Live At Robert Johnson, the club's in-house label. LARJ hosted a much-loved mix CD series—Dixon, Ivan Smagghe, Roman Flügel and Prins Thomas all contributed editions—but these days the label is focussed on releasing high quality club music from its extended family—Massimiliano Pagliara, Arto Mwambe et al—and beyond. When also you consider that Hafenbauer has a hand in Club Michel, the restaurant connected to Robert Johnson, it's impressive that he maintains a gig schedule that sees him playing Europe's better nightclubs most weekends."

From the Bandcamp blog: Brooklyn Electronic Foundation: Our Friends Electric

To read the full article and discover some really cool music go to this link:

“What brings those three and my label—Styles Upon Styles—together, is our attention to people who may or may not be based in New York but are definitely inspired by New York, and the free-form nature of the music; tapping into any sort of style or genre in the city and building that into whatever’s honest to that producer or musician.”
An alliance is gathering strength in Brooklyn.
Don’t worry, we’re not talking about a secret consortium of realtors and restaurateurs and their trust-fund-rocker fifth columnists, all hell-bent on colonizing every last corner of the five boroughs to make way for new condos and $6 cups of coffee.
We’re talking about a new force within the city’s underground and experimental electronic music scenes, one determined to carve out new possibilities in club music, DIY party-making, and home listening that’s informed by both.
In some ways, it’s an accidental alliance, given that the diverse set of labels we’re talking about are linked by a couple of key players, namely Matt Werth, who runs RVNG Intl. and distributes Tim Sweeney’s Beats in Space, and Phil Tortoroli, a label manager, publicist, A&R, and jack-of-all-trades who has a hand in the day-to-day operations of RVNG, Beats in Space, Ron Morelli’s L.I.E.S., and Daniel Lopatin’s Software. With his friend Cam Curran, Tortoroli also helms Styles Upon Styles and its Bangers and Ash sub-label.

The German duo BAR featured in dublab's MP3 blog


BAR – Adios

The Düsseldorf duo BAR, consisting of Stabil Elite musician Lucas Croon and Christina Irrgang, is elegant, stylish and smooth, perfect soundtrack for neon lit lofts in some industrial neighborhood. This is also dance music to enjoy by the coast, in a villa in some island. “Welcome to BAR” is recorded, produced and emotionally arranged on various synthesizers, the drums, with film soundtrack samples, vocal collages and instruments such as the pocket piano, which Croon and Irrgang became aware of in Los Angeles through their acquaintance with Diva Dompé. A passionate work that keeps it cool at all times.

Marisa Anderson: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Marisa Anderson

download audio
17 min 11 sec
• Marisa Anderson knows where American guitar music has been and where it is now, and probably possesses an inkling of where it can go. She's studied the history and musical nuance of blues, country and folk music through and through, and ingests it all in a style that's as raw as it true. But mostly, Anderson just wants to kick up some dirt — which isn't easy here, given that the NPR Music offices are relatively clean. (Mind the towering stacks of CDs, though. They could topple over at any time.)
In 2013, Anderson released two albums. December's Traditional and Public Domain Songs contains exactly what its title suggests; as she says, "I thought of these songs like our national parks — they belong to all of us. If we don't use 'em, we'll lose 'em, I reckon, or someone will buy 'em." At the Tiny Desk, that includes Stephen Foster'sparlor song "Hard Times Come Again No More," in which she slowly builds the melody with a violent shake.

Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez on dublab, it's Dopelab now!


Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez – Interviewed by Danny Holloway + KD Tribute Mix by DJ Destroyer (04.14.13)

“It’s so hard to write something brief about Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez, his history is so long + dense. He has really helped alter the way we experience music with his productions, remixes, solo projects, Masters At Work output and releases on his Kay-Dee imprint. Kenny is a beat-head and rabid wax collector. The titles in his personal 45 collection are ridiculous. Nearly all of his sevens are in immaculate condition and triple sleeved. The big man with the love of rhythm-driven music and passion for powerful club cuts dropped by the dublab studio for this interview before heading to the airport to board another plane to further spread the fever.” –Danny Holloway

Anenon – Karma

From the Dublab web site


Karma is part of the new Anenon‘s record “Sagrada”. Conceived as a document to bridge Simon’s more precise studio practices with his increasingly free form and saxophone-focused live shows, this is a true document of precise instrumentation, calculated production and an improvisational spirit that moves with a every step into a new form.
Sagrada will be out on September 23rd on 
Non Projects.
