Jonathan Kaspar has only been releasing music for two years, but they’ve already been placed on renowed labels like KX, Objektivity or Pets. And although the Cologne-resident was riding the HipHop train during his teenage years, you won’t be able to hear this influence in his productions.
Growing up in Gran Canaria and now residing in Berlin, Kalyma‘s personal journey is as interesting as his musical one. As one of the founders, alongside MYNY and D.Y.A, of the label Solide the producer is responsible for several drum and rhythm oriented tracks.
Cleveland’s ‘Kyoto’ EP is a nice follow-up to his recent remix streak where he’s reimagined tracks by Roosevelt, Benjamin Fröhlich and Abstraxion. The young producer seems to have the world on his mind as both track named after – Kyoto (Japan) and Coimbra (Portugal).
&ME‘s path has gone up ever since he moved to Berlin back in 2004, which marked the beginning of his musical career in the spotlight of the electronic music. With his very first Keinemusik release, ‘F.I.R.‘, Andre Boadu, how close friends call &ME, set quite high standards for following releases, but disappointed neither his audience nor DJs.
PHCK have had a busy year releasing a multitude of original tracks and remixes. Regardless of quantity, the duo’s talents shine through in all their creations. Their latest original, Death of a Butterfly has been included in All Day I Dream’s Summer Sampler.
Mathias Schober, aka SB, aka part of Pattern Select and SBTH, is also the head of Lossless. His first release of 2017, his Rhythm Rework Remix masterfully adds an extra touch of flare to the original.
‘Masala‘ by Floyd Lavine is the first release on Berlin based label RISE and depicts the warmth of African influenced House Music in a world that is becoming colder in terms of humanity.
