  4. MANNEQUINE & JAS CREW

    November 17, 2013 - by labeladmin

    Introducing Mannequine, the duo comprising of gifted songwriter Claudio Salvia and versatile dj Ruben Cassiano also behind their Swiss hometown’s best club night. After kicking off their collaboration with bootlegs and edits, the pair soon moved onto producing tentalizing tunes, high on tasteful melodies and rich arrangements, naturally fusing funk, house, nu-disco, indie, r’n’b, beats… in one inspired spell that’s got a definite 2013 stamp to it. 

    Soon several remixes followed, including their impeccable dramadisco reinterpretation of Kill The Hero ft Maggie K de Monde ‘Surrender’ (the 3rd Continental release where they were running against fierce competition with remixes from the likes of Shazam, Play Paul/Tulip, Reflex, Lancelot…) and soon enough Mannequine got working on their debut release, a voluptuous invitation not short of vibey keys, bouncy beats and exotic fragrance.

    Enter local rappers Jas Crew, three MC’s who between them combine five nations united under one name. These Swiss, with only one thing on their mind: music, as a whole in all its various forms and facets, have let their magic operate over Mannequine’s track and provided a fresh and infectious song. ‘Bombay Night Story’ was born, with a chorus catchier than chickenpox, this tale about a night out with loved ones offers a good piece of advice: it’s alright giving it all but make sure not to go overboard.

  10. UP & ABOUT // Jerry reports - Kitsuné Australian tour

    October 6, 2013 - by labeladmin

    image

    Eternally enamoured with the sun-drenched Aussie scene, most probably because of the British-French musical heritage it often bears, it’s with excitement I landed and set base in Sydney for two weeks on the occasion of Kitsuné’s first ever Down Under tour.

    Six parties to celebrate the release of Kitsuné Soleil 2 - my new cd mix in collaboration with sir Gildas, which took me all over the country for some fully kitted Kitsuné Club Nights including many local artists and friends of the label.

    It started off in a Melbourne dingy basement rammed with indie students, where I met the glowing Chela a determined character who won’t leave you cold. Unfortunately she got diagnosed with salmonela the next day and had to spend the week in hospital cancelling two dates on the tour. Shame as her semi-live act with guitarist provided a substantial addition to the party.

    Had the good fortune to meet another larger-than-life individual, The SwissLuke Million who performed animated live dj sets with keyboard and talk box on two dates. A true one-man orchestra possessed by the boogie demon, he’s also a gentleman with hand on heart. Not unlike the unique Shazam (aka Cameron Parkin) who too joined the bill in Perth, with fingers in many pies, the 23-year-old prodigy is still fluttering from one project to the next… As long as he keeps on offering us those magical chords he’s got us addicted to, we aren’t fussy!

    Then it was off to Goldcoast for the world famous Elsewhere which truly deserves its reputation, the party went off big time and I ended up deejaying almost 3 hours despite being jet-lag sick (and mothered by tour co-organiser Jon). Good vibes all around, resident djs Audun, Giv and Stretch run their club with love and affection, and it shows.

    Back in Sydney I was asked to visit this community project which puts gifted kids in the studio with professionals. So I spent one afternoon doing a track with Tasha, a 16-year-old girl who sings like a hurt angel and could practically play guitar in The XX. I was hypnotized, and in a few takes monitored by Adam Pablo Calamary, the pair wrote a proper tune - complete with rap from a classmate MC - over a 116 BPM beat lifted off JBAG’s remix of RÜFÜS ‘This Moment’.

    image

    Talking about RÜFÜS, the trio was deejaying before me on the tour’s Sydney date (as well as party starters Softwar) and delivered their inspired take on the deep-house evangelism which is currently sweeping Australia. The day before I played a few records at the private party, the band had for the release of its debut album ‘Atlas’. This unstoppable indie-electro band could simply go stellar, they’ve got the tunes and the right attitude. 

    Club Feet is another indie electro band which has two of its members, the brazen and friendly Julian & Ben, turn into US-flavoured house djs at the weekend covering the whole of the land back and forth.

    In Perth the party ended up in the club’s toilets with local dj figure Manimal and tour co-organiser Josh who certainly knows a good party when he sees one. In Brisbane I got to meet the interesting and friendly Bowler Bar crowd and Mitzi’s Jad Lee (also on the bill under his Jad & The Ladyboy dj alias) which made me feel at home like in east London, only on the other side of the planet. Talk about universal language.
