This time, Fin is getting support from his father Gilbert (David Hasselhoff), who just lost his boyfriend to the shark breed in an amusement park …

On 20th August, daredo media releases a new romantic tragicomedy on its Darling Berlin label: “Liebe mich!” (English: “Love me!”) tells the story of Sarah, a loud, non-conformist, rude, honest and provocative girl. She seems invincible, but she is lonely and lost and is struggling with her daily life.
“Liebe mich!” (“Love me!”), directed by Philipp Eichholtz, is a film working with improvisation and without a big budget or promotion. Inspired by the “Great Movies Manifesto” of director Axel Ranisch, the film was shot in Berlin in ten days, using a six-page script. With its excellent cast – Lilli Meinhardt (Sarah), Christian Ehrich (Oliver), Peter Trabner (Sarah’s father Dieter) and Axel Ranisch (Denis) – the movie “describes the wrong ways and ricochets of an adolescent city dweller in an empathetic, self-ironic way and with a fresh view” (kino-zeit.de). And Zitty Berlin says “…an ode to Berlin… …gorgeous actors… …just makes you feel happy”.
A few more words on the story:
Sarah’s MacBook Air flies out of the window when she is throwing an angry fit after an argument with her supposedly best friend. They just spent the night together but he’s not on the same page as her regarding of this new development in their relationship. Stupidly enough, her whole week’s work is on that broken laptop. But maybe the nice guy from the computer repair store can fix it? Or maybe he can fix her life altogether? He is trying to do both and Sarah lets him, because behind her loud and impulsive façade she has a big desire for love. But Sarah wouldn’t be Sarah if she did not test the limits of what this new blooming relationship could take, how many arguments she can have with her father or how much she can party away in Berlin’s night life.
“Liebe mich!” (Love me!) – in cinemas in Germany from 20th August 2015 and on DVD/VOD from 2nd October 2015.

Lee Burton – Concrete Waves EP (Amam)
Lee Burton returns to the Amam imprint late July with the ‘Concrete Waves’ EP, featuring three original tracks and remixes from Paul Mad and The Magnecian.Greek producer Lefteris Kalabaks aka Lee Burton has been releasing material since 2010 via the likes of Athens based imprint Klik Records, Plastic City and of course Amam where he returns to here following a string of original productions for the label over the past few years. Across the ‘Concrete Waves’ EP Burton delivers his signature striking production style with finesse and an inherently understated quality throughout, kicking things off is ‘Le Coq’ which lays its focus on weighty, low-slung rhythms, swirling dub echoes and wreathing subs. Up next is ‘Kepler’ which tips the focus over a deeper, more refined palette of sound with soft ethereal textures, shuffling drums and pulsating bass tones, Hungarian producer Paul Mad’s take on ‘Kepler’ follows and reshapes the original number into a raw, stripped-back cut solely focused on modulating percussion
Archie Hamilton – Works On Sunday EP (Fuse London)
Archie Hamilton unleashes the ‘Works On Sunday EP’ on Fuse London, kicking off with ‘Mind Blank’ – a kinetic slice of pure peak time goodness, the track kicks into a high gear right from the start with rolling percussion leading to the bass line which serves as the grooves motif. The EPs vinyl only track ‘Works On Sunday’ switches gear, delving into deeper, headier territory with a more melodic leaning, an ethereal vocal snippet imbuing proceedings with a blissful feel whilst label staples Enzo Siragusa and Seb Zito take ‘Works on Sunday’ into a techier direction, toughening up the drums and roughing up the percussion on their remix.
Luca Bacchetti – Amazon (Endless)
Continually pushing back the boundaries of his comfort zone, Luca Bacchetti has always encouraged us to expect changes of direction and scene. Following last year’s acclaimed OVO EP he now releases AMAZON, his new single, once more full of surprises. Taking its cue from a memorable gig at the Lost Beach in Montañita, Equador it stands as an iconic symbol and, in this case, a tribute to the South American Continent. An incredible musical voyage spanning mystical, electronic and dreamlike dimensions which, like so much of his output, are inspired by and rooted in nature.
Crazy Sonic – Cuts / Assassin (Tronic)
Next up on Tronic release number 183 is a double tracker from Crazy Sonic consisting of two powerful groovers. First track “Cuts” is a euphoric one, solid drum work, steel pipe hits and a feeling of bohemia which blends in with metallic stabs and a airy melody to complete it and the second track “Assassin” is a burner with a hypnotic glacial melodic game to keep your mind locked till the end. Truly honest and into the point release!

When Jessica receives the honorable invitation to represent Germany at an international contest for classic music, it seems to be her great opportunity – at the same time it means enormous pressure. In her home, Jessica starts to prepare herself meticulously for the contest. However, her own four walls don’t seem to give her shelter as she finds herself more and more exposed to small and major anonymous harassments. What is the neighbor’s involvement prying mysteriously behind half-closed curtains…?
