Israeli hybrid house and techno masters Juju & Jordash return to Dekmantel Records with yet another outstanding release. Their relentless work ethos makes you wonder if these guys sleep at all. Maybe that’s what Tuesdays are for DKMNTL 043 is a three-tracker and a fine display of Gal Aner’s and Jordan Czamanski’s next-level, improv based way of painting records. ‘Monday Mellow’ is a dubbed out, twisted and subtly emerging house groover, while ‘Wednesday Something’ continues the journey with a dense electronic jazz-tinged stomper. ‘Thursday, Heavy.’ demonstrates their full range, combining eerie melodic synth excursions with a jagged bassline – an out of this world, destructive yet classy house bomb. As always their intergalactic excursions are superbly executed. Let’s give them some rest on those Tuesdays.
Juju & Jordash again on downbeat, 8 records after, celebrating the 10th release. This is the recording of the live act performance at a Downbeat night on December, 2015. Slow jams with tropical vibes progressing leisurely in both sides.
Solarism is the result of a common fascination for landscapes and a passion for contemplation. The first release comes with two Arno E. Mathieu’s pieces of music and a Juju & Jordash remix.
Dekmantel launches Selectors, a new intimate festival and a compilation series. The concept of Selectors focuses heavily on Dekmantel’s support for the art of DJ’ing, celebrating the extra-ordinary DJs that turned collecting and playing music into an art form. The festival will take place at the Garden Resort in Tisno and will host just 1500 people with amongst others Aroy Dee, Carlos Souffront, Helena Hauff, I-F, Traxx, Intergalactic Gary, Juju & Jordash and Motor City Drum Ensemble on the bill. The latter is also responsible for the first Selectors compilation.
