Night Defined Recordings welcomes Roger 23 for his first solo album in seven years. The enigmatic producer, DJ and record digger is now back at NDR with an album, which showcases the versatile musical interest of the cheerful Saarländer. Self-imposed highest demands on sound quality, complete openness to give place to various musical influences and the experience of many years of a music inhaling individual make ‘Bounds Of A Moral Principle And Established Standard Behavior‘ an album complete in itself.

Șerb – Transient Recs 2 [NDWAX008]
In 2015 we stumbled across an EP by a low-profile Romanian producer, which retrospectively was a pivotal event for the development of the label. This record was Serb’s ‘Transient Recs 1’, released via Listen2me from Bucharest. We were deeply touched by the harsh and progressive sound of the tunes, which at the same time were so musical.
After a remix for Fehlzuendung and his LP ‘A12 Proceedings’ in 2018, things are coming full circle in 2021 as Șerb returns to Night Defined Recordings with ‘Transient Recs 2’, a collection of tracks produced between 2015 and 2018.
VA – NDVAX01 [NDVAX01]
Launch of a new series of Various Artists 12inches to be released on Night Defined Recordings, which will serve as a platform for the existing NDR label family as well as for new faces. NDVAX01 gathers four tracks by Șerb, SW., Roger 23 and Eduardo De La Calle, which find common ground when it comes to depth and space as well as to walk away from established song structures in favor of establishing a forward-thinking type of club music.
20 Albums from 2018
With just a few days from the current year left, I’ve compiled a list of 20 albums from 2018 that I enjoyed this year. Among these I have to highlight the much anticipated Mutant Beat Dance debut album, the first ever album from Gerard Hanson under the E.R.P. project, a new Gerald Donald project and a compilation of unreleased Heinrich Mueller remixes, a Silent Servant follow-up on Hospital Productions, a very interesting Fred Ventura compilation of unreleased house tracks, a new Lebanon Hanover, the beautiful debut album of Curses, the impressive Eindkrak album and the debut album of the Romanian producer Șerb.
The list is compiled in chronological order.
Eindkrak – Brullend Staal [Unknown Precept]
Șerb – A12 Proceedings [NDWAXLP01]
Night Defined Recordings presents its first full-length album so far: Șerb’s „A12 Proceedings“. A record made in sparse moments while living between the crooked walls of an old apartment building in Bucharest.
