Lemongrassmusic Episode 100
Lemongrassmusic proudly presents their 100th label release. For sure this is a reason to party. But instead of receiving gifts, the label is giving out a huge treasure box of goodies to their fans and followers. You will be showered with 50 brand new, mostly unreleased tracks carefully selected by the label owners and driving forces Roland & Daniel Voss. Guiding you through the labels sound cosmos you will be delighted by receiving a splendid variety of songs, all done by highly valued Lemongrassmusic heroes plus a few very fresh signings and surprises. Reaching the glory of 100 is only once in a lifetime. But to consider the label as old aged is wrong thinking. Lemongrassmusic is only 7 years old and has become an internationally known trademark for modern Lounging in only a short time. Initially founded as a platform for their own projects such as Lemongrass, Weathertunes, Jasmon and Five Seasons, soon the Voss brothers expanded the label’s philosophy to become a home-base for producers and musicians from 16 different countries. With genre-bending music releases Lemongrassmusic is widening the scope of the Lounge genre by exploring Chillout, Ambient, NuJazz, TripHop, Electronic World Music, Deep House, Nu-Soul and more. Artists like Karen Gibson Roc, Eskadet, Faro, T2’n, Glam Sam & His Combo, Northbound, Gushi & Raffunk, Michiko, Mirage Of Deep, MoShang, Man In A Room and Keisuke Sakai are highlights of a brilliant up to date label spectrum, which is responsible for unforgettable moments on Lounge floors worldwide.

Lemongrass – Sirius (Lemongrassmusic | Germany)
Sirius is the most luminescent star in the night sky. A light years away double-galaxy, considered as a mystical symbol by many ancient cultures. This is the chosen destination of Lemongrass’s new album. As usual Lemongrass’s range of drums and percussion is sticking out. Well for those who don’t know, Roland Voss is an educated drummer. Either as a cool down-tempo groove (Deep Blue), as a playful broken beat Jazz rhythm (Jazz Bandits) or just with a discrete Snare, the choice is always brought to the point. Hopefully Mr. Spock puts his intergalactic radio on once in awhile. It would be a pity if his Half-Vulcan ears would miss this “Sirius” expedition. Listen: Lemongrass – Sirius
Ohm-G – Hulectric Soul (Eivissabeat | Spain)
Olaf Gutbrod, aka Ohm-G, was fascinated the music for as long as he can remember. Music was and is magic for him. Olaf got his first guitar when he was 9 years old. From this moment on he knew that music was his life. Since 2004 Ohm-G is the resident DJ at Atzaró, one of the best locations for exquisite music and visuals in Ibiza, where he initiated also the Atzaró Lounge. The last 6 years Ohm-G focused on refining his sound, his production and his DJing. Before the new album “Hulectric Soul” he released five albums already as well as contribute tracks on well known Compilations like Cafe del Mar, Hotel Costes, Buddha Bar and other well known compilations.

Yonderboi – Passive Control (Mole Listening Pearls | Hungary)
After long years of work the author of unique and successful albums “Shallow and Profound” (2000) and “Splendid Isolation” (2005) is back with his new long-player, “Passive Control”, which is considered to be the third, closing part of the trilogy. The whole album has an elusive feel of utopia, which can be explained easily by Yonder’s love for science fiction ever since he was a kid. Jean Gireaud Moebius the legendary French comics artist, Russian sci-fi movie “Kin-Dza-Dza”, or Hungarian cult-film “Meteo” are just a few examples that inspired him during the making of “Passive Control”.

Praful – Pyramid In Your Backyard (Therapy Recordings | The Netherlands)
To some electronica enthusiasts, it might seem like a contraction to describe Praful as a saxophonist who has some relevance to electronica. If electronica is all about synthesizers, drum machines, sequencers, samplers, and the like, how can a saxman possibly have any relevance to electronica? So this is why it´s difficult to say exactly how “Pyramid in Your Backyard” should be categorized. It’s probably best to describe the release as a hybrid mixture of electronic club/dance grooves (including trip-hop, chillout, and ambient), pop-jazz, and world music.

Even if you hear his productions after some time again, you will always find something new and surprising. Easily and neatly, he moves between spheric sounds of excellent electronic music, experimental, and classic elements. And he is familiar with all of them. He mixes different styles in a unique way to create the unmistakable OHM-G sound. He plays spanish tunes and guitar duos as well as tribal voices and dubby reggae. In Spring 2011, he starts his own label “Eivissabeat” on which you can find the remastered re-releases of his albums “Nothing To Lose” (1999), “Future Ballade” (2001), “Moments” (2005), “Can Pardalet” (2006), “Feelings” (2008) as well as his new productions (for example his new album “Hulectric Soul”) and artistalbums like the new album from “Green Rabbit”.
