From the 1st of february 2010 the technique of deeep.net is taken over by daredo GmbH in Mannheim. The existing technical service is still guaranteed. For the labels and companies who use the deeep.net system since today, nothing changes. We are pleased to simultaneously announce in this context, that some technical enhancements will be added into the deeep.net system in the next following weeks. Thus it is a new tool called “deeep.net producer”. For further details about the new possibilities with this tool, we will describe more detail on this page in the near future.
2006 was the year when former U.S. Vice President Al Gore warned the world from catastrophic climate change. The world began to develop a new consciousness: life in the so-called sustainability. In addition to the major global challenge had to be commonplace in the private sector to radically change the act. Saving energy and organic boom have announced since. Similarly, the performance of music buyers changed radically. The boom in download stores made ever more niche products in the world at any time available. For the label Mole Listening Pearls and their artists are now offered the possibility of cultural globalization. Bands like Khoiba could be expelled from Prague with a mouse click in the USA. The French Hip-Hop Star Wax Tailor docked to the label and all artists like The Lushlife Project or Naomi have earned a lot of new fans in Alaska, Japan or New Zealand with their digital albums. Part 3 of Mole Listening Pearls retrospective assembles 27 song of the current phase of the labels and is a collection of strong songwriting, relaxed, casual and brilliant beauty.
Tojami Sessions is a collaboration project of Michel Niepenberg, Tom Bucher and Jacek Darnowski and represents the diversity of house music. Michel and Jacek are producing together since about 1992. As a duo, their first release came out in 1997 on G.E.M. sublabel Hey Babe!, followed by productions for Frankfurt’s Raum…Musik using the pseudonym „Skiebäck“. Tom joined the crew in 1999 as a professional drum player – the Tojami Sessions trio was born and released on “In Between Entertainment”, “Raum…Musik” and “Separe’ Rec.” until Steve Bug signed Tojami Sessions in the mid of 2001 for Dessous Recordings. 2010 Tojami Sessions will start their comeback – this time on Plastic City.
2001 was the year in which the world was fundamentally changed. The 9/11 also marked the end of the fun society. The world fell into a state of shock. The “easy way of live” was extremely difficult from one day to another. The awareness of the mauic and art had to be changed. A label like Mole Listening Pearls, which was committed in its first phase before all the wit, concerned itself with more serious content. After 9/11 Mole Listening Pearls also had to close the office in New York City. From this point the label only acts from Europe. And also the cooperation with the New York company “Totem Design” ended after the the Totem Design Office closed in 2004 because of the economic crisis after the attacks in New York. The artists family of Mole Listening Pearls was now focused on the changing lifestyle of the new millennium. Less to the melancholy and sadness, but for answers to give comfort and hope. The beat and the sound moved more into the background. The Mole artists developed increasingly to songwriters and storytellers. Part two of Mole Listening Pearls Showcase now united precisely this phase of the label from 2001 – 2005.
In 1993 a good friend of Tom Bucher sparked his interest in electronic music. Tom began with DJ performances, playing Techno & Trance. Later on, he also played House, which is still his favorite style of music. In 1999 he started to produce electronic music with two friends. In 1999, they released there first vinyl under the project name „Tojami Sessions“ on the label “In Between Entertaiment“, followed by releases for „Separe“, „Raum …Musik“ and „Dessous Rec.“ Christos Kessidis fell in love with electronic music in the mid 90´s and was especially amazed with the New York Deep-House sound. He started to concentrate on his skills as a DJ in a young age. Through the years he established his own sound and style. His DJ sets always varied. This is especially true for his energetic and emotionally sets that manage to get everybody in the perfect mood. He has released tracks on labels like Exun Records, 8 Bit and Aenaria Music. Tom Bucher and Christos Kessidis met and started working together in the spring of 2006 and immediately started a prolific partnership based on their shared music styles (which fuse elements of Chicago House, Disco, 80’s Soul, Jazz-Funk and Detroit- Techno) and their common experiences with the DJ circuit. In recent years they’ve developed and created a powerful and original style of House-Music, ranging from Deep House to Tech-House, Dub and on to groovier tracks, but always with an emotional touch which creates a special intensity in their music. After their debut on Plastic City with the “The Dark Knight EP” in 2009, they come back in 2010 with three brand new and deep tech-house tunes.
Ever felt that life is a long and steep road, a neverending fist fight against an invincible opponent, a romance against all odds? Well, so does the hero in the video for Dragon Tree, the brilliantly catchy new single by Berlin synth-pop outfit NAOMI. No, make that two heroes – Bernd Lechler and Nico Tobias have a habit of doing everything together, so for the first time in pop video history all members of a band are taking turns playing the main character. And what a day the guy has to survive, involving getting fired, beaten, wet, lost, and knocked out. And when he attempts to regain his pride by trying to get drunk, stoned and laid (in no particular order) at night, the results are mixed, if foreseeable. Quite unlike the place he comes to in the morning, which is higher than he thought he might get. At least he’s not alone. Or is he? It’s never been easy to climb the Dragon Tree.
