In light of the current Covid-19 Pandemic Studio Enisslab headed up by Italian DJ / Producer and Live Act Neel has announced the release of a very special 56 track charity compilation project, fundraising for The Red Cross, who are working extremely hard alongside health services internationally that are feeling the effects of the corona-virus outbreak the most right now. The compilation is available for a limited time via Bandcamp and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to The Red Cross to help the world’s most affected countries in the Covid-19 pandemic.
This special release features over 6 hours of previously unreleased and unheard material, where an all star cast of artists were encouraged to share music that reflects this time we are living in.
Neel, who is one half of live duo Voices From The Lake, and LF58 speaks out on behalf of the initiative, organised in collaboration with improvised live project Circle Of Live, and visual art collective Sbagliato. He explains:
“In this situation we all need to look after each other and this project is a start. I wanted to reach as many people as possible to spread this message, so I started to share the idea personally with lots of artists and the response was amazing. I wanted them to take their time with whichever tools they had available at home to produce some music that reflects this time we are living in, a contribution for this special project and to portray a special message.”
The project’s cover art image brought to you by visual art collective Sbagliato shows pictures of windows of houses and studios taken by the artists themselves: 56 musicians, 56 windows, 56 tracks shape a new place of sharing.
Mathew Jonson & The Mole, Peter Van Hoesen and Blue Hour deliver three of the album tracks in remix form.
Honorary Rebel Mathew Jonson will soon be unleashing his long awaited third artist album on Crosstown Rebels but first a slice of the Canadian minimal house pioneer’s inimitable style with two tracks of distinct tonal contrast both with the unique stamp of a Jonson production. A-side ‘Automaton’ is a powerful trip with a solid yet nuanced drive, intricate tribal beats with an almost syncopated African influence combined with gnarled bass sequences in a never-ending groove. B-side ‘In The Stars’ enters a more abstract realm, with celestial synth melodies melting into a sound bed of futuristic bleeps and a soporific groove of percussion and a heavy bass beat. In the breaks, vague jazzy chords fuse with an echoing voice descending from space.
ITISWHATITIS is back! 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the labels first release “Panna Cotta” with two new tracks. Lost in vaults until now “Panna Cotta” resurfaced of a CD Mathew made for friends in 2003. As fate would have it though it would be the first out of hundreds of CD’s only labeled “2003″ that Mathew picked from the box in his search. Here at IIWII we believe heavily in synchronicity. These tracks have found there place in time to be released.
Mathew Jonson makes his debut on Crosstown Rebels, with the Dayz EP. ‘Dayz’ is a very melodic house-meets-techno affair. Driven by punchy kicks, the track fuses silky synthesizers to vivid keys, with the overall result being a strong Detroit-ish track. ‘Cold Blooded’ is a more static, electro-based house track with twisted melodies, nasty bass stabs and super heavy vintage synth waves in the middle part.
Mathew Jonson presents “Learning To Fly”, his second release on Minus, following 2004’s “Decompression” EP. “Learning To Fly” is a 12 minute sci-fi exploration that achieves that mark of classic electronic music production, working just as thrillingly for personal listening as it does when experienced as part of Jonson’s transcendent live performances.
