Label: Warner Music New Zealand Limited

Cairo Knife Fight is Nick Gaffaney, a man who has drummed his way around the place for many of New Zealand’s leading songwriters, and George Pajon Jr, a Grammy award winning songwriter and guitarist who has worked with some of the biggest names in the international music business including The Black Eyed Peas, Fergie, Carlos Santana, Macy Gray, John Legend, Sting, Nas and Damien Marley. Forming as a duo in 2009 Cairo Knife Fight try to redefine what two musicians can create live with Nick combining the responsibilities of playing drums, keyboard bass, creating live loops and lead vocals with George’s seemingly limitless guitar soundscapes and incendiary riffs. The bands long history of dedication to pushing the boundaries of music video content has also seen them achieve viral status with their 2014 single Rezlord being viewed 11.7 million times as of May 2017.

Initially Andreas Bay Estrup dreamt of a musical career as a jazz drummer. He studied in Copenhagen, Amsterdam and the US and never really wished to do anything else but drumming. But things didn’t go as planned. Estrup started writing songs and began to think of a band he could play these songs with. He formed a band of old and new friends, all of them experienced musicians from acts like Saybia, Slaraffenland, Folkeklubben and Efterklang. They rehearsed in the basement of Rasmus Jusjong’s parents. Rasmus was the drummer of this new band called Dangers of the Sea, as Andreas Bay Estrup had become its lead singer.

Em seu segundo álbum, Kebrada do nome da aldeia onde passou sua infância (a ser publicado em 20 de outubro), Elida Almeida afirma sua identidade africana, temperando com energia latina suas ritmos cabo-verdianos. Mas é com uma balada suave, Forti Dor (a história de um filho que morreu das más influências dos amigos), que ela nos seduziu novamente com sua voz quente e doce ao mesmo tempo.

Orchestre Les Mangelepa - Last Band Standing (2017)
World, Africa, Folk | 01:14:23 | MP3, 320 kbps | 170 MB
Label: Strut

It starts with a horn fanfare, then eases into lilting Congolese rumba, Kenyan-style, with three singers backed by a rock-solid rhythm section, intertwining guitars and horns. From the opening bars of Kanemo, it’s evident that Orchestre Les Mangelepa are as potent today as they were in the 1970s, when they sported platform shoes and became dancefloor heroes across east Africa. Originally from eastern Congo, they moved to Nairobi and succeeded by mixing the massively popular music of their homeland with Kenyan influences and lyrics in Swahili. But despite their success in Africa, they didn’t tour in Europe until last year. This new studio album, their first for the international market, includes old favourites such as Maindusa, but also the new, keyboard-backed Ma Lilly, featuring the powerful, pained vocals of founder member Kabila Kabanze. After all these years, they deserve a new following in the west.

Label: Jarring Effects Label

To gain some grasp of the genesis of this new project, that may seem surprising at first, let's address what both artists have in common, rather that what differentiates them. Internationally recognized masters in the styles, respectively reggae & dub, that they are developing in parallel for almost 20 years, without never really meeting each other, the two protagonists strive to challenge their codes in an ever greater respect to their Jamaican roots: two decades furthering a relentless fight against musical orthodoxy, to the benefit of interbreedings that have always been major contributions to music — and arts in general — History. This is evidenced by jazz and Jamaican traditional music fusion in the case of Harrison Stafford, and notably with his amazing adventure with Groundation, as well as by Martin Nathan countless experimentations, over Brain Damage prolific discography, always digging in more unlikely and audacious directions.

Esteemed for their improvisational audacity, hurtling forwards to a motorik beat, there is another side to the Berlin "Krautrock Guerilla" trio Camera which sees them explore landscapes of sound. This is exactly what the two founder members Franz Bargmann (guitar) and Timm Brockmann (keyboards) present their purely instrumental debut album Licht. Harmonic and melancholic, tender and tough, planar and rhythmic – yet never dull.

Label: City Slang

Grandbrothers are the sum of unique parts: Progressive Swiss engineer/mechanic/software designer Lukas Vogel and German-Turkish pianist Erol Sarp. Their second album 'Open' twins Sarp's piano skills with Vogel's talent for both building the formidably intricate mechanics with which he exploits his partner's instrument and also designing its software. Sarp works at his ivory keyboard while, from behind his own computer keys, Vogel live-samples his partner's notes, triggering further effects with the aid of a homemade apparatus that physically manipulate the piano's strings and body. They have essentially built an analogue drum machine out of a grand piano. Nerd out! Creating a new shade, a new dimension, a new generation of atmospheric krautrock with the piano at its core.

Germanys favorite boutique label Emerald & Doreen and Hamburgs Synth Pop Disco heroes THE SWEEPS team up to deliver a retrospective of the band's early albums.

THE SWEEPS Kristina Brodowski (Vocals) Christoph Duwe (Synthesizers Fender Rhodes Moog (Backing) Vocals) and Niels Wesner (String Synthesizers Moog (Backing) Vocals) were joined by vocalists Johanna Hanf in January 2012 and started to work on the ORS ON WELLES album. With now 2 girls in their lineup and all of them familiar with the catalogue of 70s and 80s supergroups (FLEETWOOD MAC ABBA THE CARPENTERS …) somehow the new songs got the ABBA meets Italo Disco touch. Time to ride on memory lane!

Duane Harden & Joe Killington)'. The 13-track album is as diverse as they come; touching on traditional disco house, through to funk, soul, boogie, nu-disco and indie dance.

Label: Kingdoms

On October, 20, 2017, ambient shoegaze duo Aris Kindt launch the new Kingdoms imprint with their second album, Swann and Odette. Picking up where their first record (2015's Floods) leaves off, Swann and Odette is an evolutionary leap forward for the duo. The sonic palette is deeper, the grooves more sparse and the melodies are given more room to seep deep within a mix so expansive it feels almost tactile. This is heady, opulent stuff.
