¡Ándale! Vol. 5 – The Humid Edition

Hey Tigerfriends,

it’s been a while, but the latest episode of our podcast series is finally up:

It’s thick and sweaty in the humid, rainy Berlin July weather, so we’re ready to hit you with a greezy downpour here.

First up is a remix from TB6 birthmother Miguel De Pedro. On the event of going back to his Teen606 years with a digital reissue of Don’t Sweat The Technics, the regressively-aging Kid606 slaps some breaks and wobbles on a remix of Soundpool’s disco dream pop, “But It’s So”.

Next up is a very exciting newcomer to the TB6 roster, Magic Panda. With popular music constantly focused on teenage talents, there’s something to be said for letting things brew until just the right moment. As Magic Panda, 29-year-old Jamie Robson presents the cream of 7 years of studio noodling, forged into an ironclad setup for live performance and improvisation. “Beyond The Burning Horizon” puts these bits-and-pieces origins on display with meticulous percussion and an affecting bleep melody. Look out for Magic Panda’s Days Are Numbered EP, coming soon on Tigerbeat6.

In describing “A Hammond and an Impala”, Belgian producer Ninjato posits, “who hears the sound of a grass eating Impala?” Who indeed? What we do know is this: Like his namesake Ninja sword, Ninjato’s glitch-step beat slices through with professional swagger.

We saved the wet towel-slap for last, of course. Joel Aimé being a drill n’ bass veteran, you know things are about to get serious when he titles a track “Sex”. The surprise happens a little after two minutes in, when the beatflexing gives way to symphonic melodies that are alternately gorgeous and mysterious.

We’re very excited to say that this release features the artwork (“Totem”) of Dutch illustrator Raymond Lemstra, whose work is inspired by the illustrative nature of primitive drawings and sculptures. View more at www.raymondlemstra.nl

More love for Pacheko via DJ MAG (Spain)

Pacheko es venezolano y en este ep ha volcado su pasión por la bass music y el acid con un resultado magistral. Tres cortes que por momentos te hacen sentirte en el Warehouse o en el Forward fusionando lo clásico del sonido acid con las programaciones rítmicas más contem- poráneas del dubstep, garaje o UK funky. La remezcla de Nehuen es genial y le da a ‘Waiting for you’ un toque más mental. Compra.

Dolby Anol – Red Leather/Yellow Leather EP out now on Tigerbass!

Artist: Dolby Anol
Album Title: Red Leather/Yellow Leather EP
Catalogue Number: tbass28
Label: Tigerbass
Format: digital only

Tigerbass presents: Red Leather/Yellow Leather EP, Dolby Anol’s first release of 2011. After their last three EP’s became a staple of many big name DJ’s sets in 2010, the duo show no signs of slowing down. Following the hard-edged techno of Sandy Bitches, the smacked-up disco of Cameroon and Far East rave-inspired Visa/Mastercard, this EP is a dark lesson in strutting contemporary acid, as suited to the bedroom as it is to the dancefloor. Red Leather’s percolating acid synths keep rising and building, while reverb-heavy breakdowns and what sounds like a deranged woman’s pleas for a better world keep the track grounded.

Mirroring the title track is the more accessible and direct club version Yellow Leather, touching on tech-funk influences and minimal house. Yellow Leather is Red Leather’s older more voluptuous sister you just can’t keep your hands off of.

First on remix duties for Red Leather, Kid606 & the Acid Trap bring you a funky dueling 303 meltdown, recorded live and then edited into dancefloor oblivion. Finland’s Obi Blanche (New Judas, What what!) comes next after a string of charting remixes for Boy 8-Bit, Les Gilettes and Zombie Nation. He chops and meads the original into something unpredictable and exciting. Last but not least is San Francisco’s C.L.A.W.S., pulling the track back to the champagne room to make a percussion-heavy space disco trip – a great warm-up or come down (we’ll try both and let you know).

Another notch in Dolby Anol’s increasing number of mini-genre exercises, Red Leather/Yellow Leather will have their increasing fanbase thirsty for what they have in store next – a nine track release with the intriguing title Whet Whet Whet!
