Fit Siegel & Kassem Mosse – Saboten [FIT-021]

An inspired collaboration from two veteran producers on top of their game – Kassem Mosse and FIT Siegel. Three well-crafted techno and house tracks created from sessions recorded at Omar-S’ FXHE Studios and FIT’s studio at Submerge in Detroit in 2016, then mixed down by Siegel in 2018 after a few years of playing rough versions in his DJ sets in clubs around the world. Diverse EP with sounds ranging from tripping acid workouts to dubbed out electronic excursions.

Dillon Wendel – Pulse [TTT057]

Far out trip as collaborative effort from Beatrice Dillon and Kassem Mosse. Dillon Wendel is a place for the two respected artists to explore soundscapes, aesthetics and synthesis in pastures aeons away from the dancefloors they’re most familiar with. Both compositions weighing in over 15 minutes, they’re experiences which challenge form and convention; “Pulse” ripples with its namesake, a texture that buzzes and drones in endless waves while “High” mutates a warmer, grainer tone with dizzying effect.

Kassem Mosse – Disclosure [HJRLP073]

Subtle music, radically strange and unafraid of the deep, but with a killer understanding of rhythm. Lush drum-machine nocturnes, gnarly electronica and glorious flowerings of zoned-out dubspace: an evolutionary music, continuously engaged with experimentation both in the studio and the club.

Afik Naim – Songs For Tova [DOLLY025]

With ‘Songs For Tova’ Dolly introduces a brand new producer called Afik Naim. This rough diamond was pulled out of a cave near Jerusalem. He has a cinematic experimental take on what you would call Techno but he is rather hard to classify to be honest. Exactly what we like, somebody who stands out with his typical sound pallet. Another perfect player on this ‘Songs For Tova’ team is the never disappointing Kassem Mosse with a killer remix to wrap up this high class 4 tracker.

Stellar OM Source – Joy One Mile [RVNGNL020CD]

https://imagescdn.juno.co.uk/300/CS491497-01A-MED.jpg

Stellar OM Source’s new album, Joy One Mile, marks a certain and spirited departure into worlds unknown. A faithful leap into the infinite beat, Joy One Mile is the most forward-reaching effort by Stellar OM Source yet. Stellar OM Source originated from Christelle Gualdi’s desire to unhinge from her academic musical upbringing. Gualdi completed her studies in electro-acoustic composition at the Conservatoire de Paris after earning an architecture degree. The process of Gualdi’s “unlearning” began in experimental ensemble settings, and it became more recognizable as she moved toward solo performance. Stellar OM Source’s name is fittingly inspired in part by the pathway to higher consciousness and cosmos via one’s own voice. Based By virtue of her many aspirations and the array of hardware that Gualdi brought to the table, Joy One Mile took form in chaos. Where this disorder might cripple others, Gualdi’s response was energetically and emotionally charged. While recording, each corner of Joy One Mile became draped in dramatic ornamentation, the mood rarely varying from frantic to frenetic. From the vantage point of the finish line, Joy One Mile bares no straight club tracks, but it depends upon a percussive propulsion nevertheless. The singularity of Gualdi’s compositions, when pulled back and recalibrated even slightly, resemble early era Warp Records, and, by that admission, the wayward electro of early-90s Detroit. The abstractions in Gualdi’s programming and mutant melodies is what keeps Joy One Mile perfectly relegated to outsider status, akin to the primitive techno of Esplendor Geometrico and Chris & Cosey.

“Sometimes you feel that you’re getting really close to what being alive means, be it learning about distant planets or being grounded by life’s occasionally heavy burden,” notes Gualdi. “Joy One Mile grew from the consciousness of such moments. When I listen to it, I see myself walking through a pouring rain at night with headphones on, embracing both the misery and ecstasy.”

Stellar OM Source – Elite Excel [RVNGNL019]

https://imagescdn.juno.co.uk/300/CS490621-01A-MED.jpg

“Elite Excel” is the lead track from Joy One Mile, the new album by French visual artist and musician Stellar OM Source. Furthering her sound from the formless soundscapes of her earlier work by digging into the roots of Detroit electro and techno primitivism, Christelle Gualdi’s version of dance music is unpredictable and inventive. “Elite Excel” pits a puckish synthline against a morose 303 bassline and icey arpeggiation, sharing a similar frequency with LFO’s classic output. The b-side features a top-notch remix by techno recluse producer Kassem Mosse, who also arranged and mixed Joy One Mile.

Kassem Mosse ‎– Staat Aus Glas EP [SOTU004]

https://soundsoftheuniverse.com/img/eEVuRUplRSt6cDBHZlRJZk91RzBZQT09/staat-aus-glas-ep-kassem-mosse-diana-policarpo.jpg

Three exclusive raw house & techno tracks from Kassem Mosse on Sounds Of The Universe label. This single is part of our Art+Sound 12” series. Channeling diverse percussive and rhythmic traditions – religious drumming ensembles filtered through astral jazz, Underground Resistance’s rugged 909 output tempered with considered minimalism all cut together with signature slow motion groove, textures contrast and sci-fi synths.  This first EP on the Sounds Of The Universe label travels through the dissonant orchestral sweeps, gliding metallic harmonics and tight polyrhythms of ‘Staat Aus Glas’, the skidding delay and offkilter 80s darkside of ‘Escape From Frankfurt’, and the saturated cinematic techno of ‘Nacht An Allen Tangent’.

XDB / Kassem Mosse – Ekatem / Omrish [DNP016]

https://i1.wp.com/imagesaws.juno.co.uk/300/CS470188-01A-MED.jpg

The second release on Diamonds And Pearls in 2012. Two of the most singular and distinct forces in house and techno today, XDB and Kassem Mosse, team up for a special sonic treat. So get yourself ready for two extended journeys into techno, house and beyond. XDB’s “Ekatem” is a driving, rough and ready house track with a beautifully bubbling square bassline and dirty synth work. On the flip XDB is joined by Kassem Mosse for an exploration into the outer reaches of house music. “Omrish” is a gritty-yet-atmospheric jam, full of shimmering chords and floating synth melodies which are punctuated by double kicks and crisp cymbals.

Special Request – Deflowered / Lolita [SPECIALREQEP002]

SPECIAL REQUEST - Deflowered (Kassem Mosse/Mix Mup remix) (Front Cover)

Second in a series of releases based on capturing the energy and culture of UK pirate radio but going way beyond that as the project unwinds. From the first highly coverted 12″, “Lolita” makes a return here, but in a ‘Warehouse Dub’ form, while new track, “Deflowered” is tweaked here by the in-demand Kassem Mosse and joined by Mix.

Sailor Mood / Summed & Dot – The Brick Remixes [ALLINN0116]

New All Inn Records release, featuring a remix dream-team. “The Brick Remixes” sees two of the All Inn family, Sailor Mood and Summed & Dot, receive the remix treatment from DJ Qu and Kassen Mosse. NYC legend Qu gets to grips with “Brick Brick Brick” and builds this house from the very depths, up. Smooth atmospherics flow between rasping hats, gattling-snares and spine-tingling synth notes. Leipzig’s Kassem Mosse takes on the task of reworking “East Brick Wall” and with hi-hats taking centre stage again, turns in a beautifully deep, wintery soundscape of invitingly textured bass and considered keys.

Seltene Erden – Northern Rae [MULEELECTRONIC079]

https://i0.wp.com/imagesaws.juno.co.uk/300/CS427709-01A-MED.jpg

Gunnar Wendel, the producer best known for his work under the Kassem Mosse moniker debuts the Seltene Erden pseudonym, with the four tracks here lavishly deep explorations. The shimmering slo-mo dub of “Northen Rae” gets things on the A-Side to a stunning start, complemented by the crackly ambience of “Bayan Obo”. Flip over for the Theo-esque rhythms of “Kvanefjeld” and perhaps the most breathtaking of the lot – the intensely relaxing, beatless soundscape of “Hoidas Lake”.
