After the success of Part 1, Stripped Down serves up a second EP of fantastic remixes of ‘Kunuaka’ from Makossa & Megablast’s seminal album of the same name. This time Booka Shade, Stereo MC’s, DJ T., Jenia Tarsol, Chaim, Sado V all come correct. First up are Get Physical label founders and melodic dance-pop icons Booka Shade. They flip the track into something warm and rubbery, with rich and classy melodies dancing over the woody beats. Then come Stereo MCs, whose Connected label is one of the best for lovers of afro tinged and organic house. DJ T. is a giant of the scene offers two versions. Jenia Tarsol made a name with an Ibiza residency alongside Guy Gerber‘s RUMORS and has gone on from his Israeli roots to be a real international presence. For his remix he was joined in the studio by Chaim and Sado V from Red Axes and the result is something special.
« Hôtel Costes presents… » is a collection of exclusive music recorded or mixed at Studio HC, the hotel studio, and composed by Adrien de Maublanc guests. This unique studio with exceptional gears craft the sound of MidiMinuit. The second opus, Round the clock, by Midiminuit, is a modern album where classical and jazz music meet modular synths. MidiMinuit is a collaborative project between pianist Julien Quentin, bass player Yonatan Levi and electronic musicians Cesar Merveille & Adrien de Maublanc. Four experts in their respective fields are harmoniously combining their music creating a new entity. Three days, twelve hours of music per day, from 12pm to 12am. This was the primary rule of the jam sessions, giving the band its name. This was the first time all four musicians came together. In those three days, there was no rehearsals. Every piece was improvised, recorded and it was moved on to the next track. Bringing those world-class musicians together had the potential to create something unique.

Establishing himself as a renowned artist in the legendary 1990s Tom Weyer aka Commander Tom is back with a 2019 remix package of his classic ‘Are Am Eye’. Speaking of nostalgia, the first remix comes from no less than Binary Finary who became superstars themselves with their ‘1998’ anthem. John Asked, renowned for his tough edged Tech-Trance sound is also part of the roster. With him and his unparalleled instinct for the right knack it was obvious that the result would be nothing but an amazing piece of trance music.Deep, tech and progressive house experts Paul Hamilton & Carl MWA look back on over twenty years in the music business. What came out is a subtle and highly sophisticated transformation into the 21st century. Last but not least we won Pablo Bolivar to set hands on the title. Organic sounds, embedded in an atmospheric soundscape, seasoned with a massive dose of groove, that’s what you get when you ask Pablo to take over and boy did he deliver. We couldn’t be happier with the result!
«Hôtel Costes presents…» is a collection of exclusive music recorded at Studio HC, the hotel studio. The second maxi, STUDIO HC #02 by Midiminuit is a modern trip where classical and jazz music meet modular synths. Four tracks as a teaser of their upcoming album. MidiMinuit is a collaborative project between pianist Julien Quentin, bass player Yonatan Levi and electronic musicians Cesar Merveille & Adrien de Maublanc.
Four experts in their respective fields are harmoniously combining their music creating a new entity. From the very first recording sessions in a ephemeral studio in Berlin, a set of rules has been made, the first one being working from 12pm to 12am, which gave birth to the name ‘MidiMinuit’, meaning “midday midnight”. The result of this unique and unusual formation is an elegant and minimalistic constellation where space is given to let the music breathe. All the tracks on this first album were improvised, catching the essence and the fragility of the original jams.
Ken Hayakawa & T Raum – Spanish Fly EP (Stripped Down Records)
Incl. Gorge Remix
Opener ‘Spanish Fly’ is characterized by a stringed instrumental lead that is exotic and intoxicating. The beats below are deep and rubbery, and the whole thing makes for a unique cut that leaves a real mark. Then it’s the excellent ‘Spirit Base’, which is a spine-tingling vocal affair with smooth, bouncy drums and airy vocal whispers that cast a majestic spell. The remix comes from Gorge, a long time tech titan from Germany who established the renowned Mannheim sound and co-runs the 8bit Records label. His version is built on silky hi hats and underlapping drums that sweep you up and keep you in the smooth grooves for the duration. Last of all is ‘Follow Me’, a perfectly atmospheric and cinematic track that feels like a deep space exploration, with cosmic winds, journeying drums and deft alien lifeforms in the synths.
M.A. – The Cannonball Run EP (Frieda Musik)
