Friendship, love or one’s own self-discovery – everything begins with this simple question: Who Are You?
With their title track from the eponymous debut album, the quartet Hansmann & Klausing is recalling this thought by supplying one of the summer anthems 2015. With a Caribou’esque light-footed breeze, the Erfurt-based act combines the sometimes moody, sometimes confident voice of singer Martin Hansmann with Sebastian Klausing’s subdued house beats, before Robert Fränzel is pushing the right keys on his saxophone.
Hailing from Göttingen, TIMO JAHNS is a mainstay in the German underground party circuit thanks to an endless list of re-edits, including his rework for the timeless ‘Pearls’ by Sade officially released on Get Physical’s sublabel Poesie Musik and flying through the Beatport charts earlier this year.
His love for soul singers is nothing new, so it’s no surprise that his latest release come in the form of a deluxe makeover of the 1972 Timmy Thomas masterpiece ‘Why Can’t We Live Together’.
Completely reimagined from top to bottom, this light and modern rendition beautifully lead the tune into pure atmospheric deep house territory that fits perfectly with the sultry and melancholic vocals which simply oozes passion. Exceptional from start to finish!
It’s not exaggerated to call rai004 a clash of titans.

German DJ and producer PRETTY PINK is on Suara for the first time with a delicate and beautiful EP.
First time ‘Gunfire’ was heard, it was impossible not to fall in love with it. It has a very sweet line of vocals with some tight synths that creates an amazing spooky atmosphere. ‘What Is Love’ is an amazing cover from the 90’s hit, refreshed in a futuristic and fragile way. Pretty Pink delivers one of the finest and most beautiful EPs of the year.

The Australian DJ, producer and musician Jad Lee likes to have several irons in the fire all at the same time. For instance he’s a member of Mitzi (along Charles Murdoch and Dominiqe Bird), one half of the pan-pacific Indiepop duo Twiggy Lashes and a solo artist known as Jad & The Ladyboy.
Under this moniker he releases music which can be described as soulful house with plenty of disco influences. For “Never Come Back Down” Jad had singer Mark Borgazzi in his studio to cut a precious, groovy two-stepper into a genuine pop diamond. In order not to get only radio airplay, but also to be played out in gloomy underground clubs with extra fat subwoofers Yannick provides his homicidal Sexfactmix. With its untamed bassline and a milling-machine like synthesizer this feels like an unchecked punch to the gut. There will be blood on the dancefloor!
It dovetails nicely that the second track of this 12inch is called “Sometimes Feelings Hurt” and that for a second time round Mark Borgazzi carries us off to the wonderland of the good groove. Again a song that sounds as good in the club as at home. A quality feature Sonar Kollektiv strikes a blow for for fairly long time. This remains for now Jad Lee’s first and only release on the Berlin based label. But as you all know: Never say never.
Hailing from Berlin, Modul Kollektiv has had a prosperous career producing under numerous synonyms within various genres, however with the arrival of his new moniker the budding artist is set to cement himself as one of the hottest bourgeoning producers within the realm of deep house. Late 2014 saw the elusive German producer’s debut release ‘Farbenfroh’ on Dirty Soul, a track name which translates to ‘colour’ and was suitably picked up by Holi Festival to be used as the promo track for their paint fuelled festival. Now with his colossal ‘Control’ release coming out on March 3rd on Kittball it unquestionable 2015 will be his most fruitful year to date.
Berlin based Electro-Folk artist Steffen Linck is coming back with his second single after Sticks & Stones (Ultra Records).
With it’s dreamy, melancholic vibe over a soft, danceable beat, ‘Silence Is Golden` has the potential to be the soundtrack of the dawning summer.
It’s the emotional experience of a story, combined with the body response to the electronic sounds and samples, that makes this track take you on a journey.
Umami, internationally recognized for their release “Sunny” on Berlin based label Katermukke, are known for their stunning deephouse tracks which are more like songs then DJ tools. They have taken ‘Silence Is Golden‘ and re-constructed it to a perfect clubby ride into the sunset, complete with guitars and the signature vocals of Steffen Linck.
Paper Jet Rec. is ready for another takeoff to the musical skies.
Weightless yet bass heavy beats are served by no other than our Frozen North captain Jussi-Pekka and his copilot Juicy Pecker. The lemons to your g&t are peeled by an unknown vocalist. While the flight goes on please enjoy your complimentary remixes by Finland’s hot stewards TM Shuffle and pothOles.
The original tracks are typical Jussi-Pekka sounds: Deep and floating, funky and minimal yet melodic. And as Jussi would say: “I take my tongue-in-cheek’s extremely seriously!”
TM Shuffle’s remix is for the modern dance floors around the clubs. Irresistible groove forces your legs to dance while the hypnotic bass and effects make your mind wonder in deep thoughts. Free your mind and your (you know how it ends)!
pothOles pays tribute to the old deep house times with his distinctive modernised soundscapes.
Good for clubs, great for summer terraces – perfect weapon for outdoor summer terrace clubs!!
