nor elle – T a x i 4 5 (mp3 EP) – Mole

“T a x i” is the 4th album of nor elle aka Terry Lee Brown Junior. After “Phantom Of Life” (1998), “Slapstick” (2001) and “Kombologi” (2006) nor elle defines his own borders of down beat and lounge once again. Concentrating on wide scapes reduced melodic insinuation this time, the album seems to work as a screen. Like a movie without dialoque or a documentary without comments the music gives room for own imaginations and projections. Creating an atmosphere of a nocturnally taxi ride Terry gives a theme, but the rest is up to the listener. Where the taxi drives, how fast or slow, wether the driver is a good or bad one may depend on the mood of the one who to dives into the calm and fantastic world of these wonderful narrative tracks. No instruction is included but leaning back and letting fantasy fly over a warm street at a coast, through a forest or the centre of an illuminated city. “T a x i 4 5″ is a Remix EP with interpretations from Greg Parker, V_for_Volkan and Terry Lee Brown Junior from the ride in the taxicab. On top of this you can find on this release a previously unreleased new track called “Outfall”.

Moon – Comfort (mp3 EP) – Mole

Moon is a musical satellite which consists of three creative minds who have been working on their world since 2003. After their first virtual meeting they discovered that they have – even though they are pretty different characters – something in common in their universe: The love for a certain kind of music – slightly melancholic , atmospheric, melodic , playful and various concerning style and colour. They define their own genre and invite the listener to a journey through pleasure, deep moods, delightfulness, sadness and happy feelings. Martin Lowis -who also used to play the guitar- and Oliver Beier connected their electronic compositions with the lovely voice of Verena Johann and began messing up styles, added funky effects and real instruments and finally arrived at their orb. Alex Jacobi as producer lead their compositions to a degree of perfection which still sounds natural…artificial?…you have to listen to experience the layers of emotions and sounds. “Comfort” is taken from the album “Gorsky Park” which was released in the beginning of 2008. On the single you can find brand new remixes of the song as well as a short radio version.

In the biography of every artist, there is always that one moment, that one situation which determines everything. The circumstance which strengthens the will. The will to start a career and to live this career unquestioning. When Safiye – just two years of age – moved to Germany with her family, her mother died. From that moment on music was her sorrow, her consolation, her hope. But at the same time, music meant secrecy and something forbidden.

The youngest of five siblings, she was born near the Syrian border in Turkey. She wasn’t allowed to sing, let alone listen to music. Her father had forbidden it. At night, when the family was asleep, she would smuggle a small cassette deck into her bed. She would place a pillow over it so that she could softly listen to pop music, which she was constantly and desirously sponging. Popmusic, which was growing into her own Vision to reach one goal: to leave parental home as fast as possible, to be self-subsistent, to live a life without prohibitions, to start a career. Safiye..s Vision was Popmusic with oriental influences.

After Safiye was crowned Germany’s most beautiful Turkish women through the “Miss Germany Association”, the stages where she musically performed grew in size . In 2006 she landed her first direct hit in the Turkish community with her song “Why Do I”. One year later, she sang the song “Ya Habibi” with the Egyptian Superstar Hisham Abbas. Safiye was in the focus of the international music scene. Since the end of 2007, together with the successful music producer, Peter Ries, who has been responsible for the sounds of the No Angels, N’Sync, Beyoncé and Kylie Minogue, she has found energetic support in collaboration on her first album and also her first single “Come Come.”
