" Dark Enough " - Kill the Dj - 2008
Techno / Minimal / Electro / Electronic
tiga : AWESOME!!!!! My only problem...try to decide which I like best. Fuck...
Following the success of Chloé’s The Waiting Room, the label Kill the Dj continues to redefine a certain idea of electro music with the long-awaited release of the first album by Remote, aka Seb Fouble & Eric Guillanton. 2000-2003: the post-French touch period, everybody is on the look out for something new, and that something new is somewhere out there on vinyl. Seb & Eric release their first maxi as Joe Zas & Co. on Pamplemousse. Then another, this a really important record, a witness to its time: Astroglide, considered as one of the best maxis in 2003 by the press and DJs alike. Then the incredible first EP by Henry Goes Dirty, Seb & Eric’s side project, citing Sonic Youth and Syd Barett as well as Phuture as influences. A bizarre mix of electro-pop-rock revealing the roots of what is now REMOTE’s identity: a totally personal appropriation of current trends tinged with a certain independent romantism.

" Zum Abschied " - Aerotone - 2008

" Wolves And Wishes " - Anticon - 2008
Indie / Experimental / Electronic
Wolves and Wishes, Martin Dosh fourth official LP, arrives after its architect spent nearly a year on the road--touring solo and as a member of Andrew Bird’s band--and yet, he sounds reborn. If 2006’s The Lost Take reimagined the drums, Rhodes and everything-but-the-kitchen-sink virtuoso as a full band, his latest restocks the lineup with a fresh cast of collaborators, then stretches out as Dosh masterminds the material (composing, improvising, arranging) with all the explorative wonderment of a debut ablum. Never has our man sounded so free. And to think, there’s not a single drum machine in the mix. Anticon

" Bersarin Quartett " - Lidar - 2008
Electronic / Experimental / Ambient
After two contributions to the highly successful Electronica Unplugged compilation series on the Aerotone netlabel, Bersarin Quartett is prepared to take the world by storm with its debut release. Contrary to its namesake, Quartett is merely a one man show -- a "Thomas" -- who at this point in time remains mysterious and would rather let the music speak for itself. An attached press release informs the inquisitive listener that Thomas likens his music to "imaginary fictional filmscores" (as opposed to the "real fictional filmscores" or "imaginary factual filmscores"), which puts him directly in the company of four trillion other electronic/ambient artists with soundtrack ambitions. I'll gripe at small redundancies and cliches in the press release, because there's really nothing about the music itself that I can fault; no, quite the contrary, it's one of the best you're likely to hear all year.

CALLING ALL VISUAL ARTISTS
Who wants to submit some T.SHIRT designs to Ninja Tune?
We are looking for some skilled ninja artists. We know you're out there and we know you want to get noticed.
There are, of course, some guidelines... like you can only use 2 or 3 colors, and you have to put 'Ninja Tune' somewhere in the design. Remember, these are for t.shirts, not album cover artwork. You can put something on the front, on the back, or on the sleeve(s). All submissions have to be received by JUNE 1, so start thinking about it now and respond to this bulletin with your info TODAY.
To be considered for this contest, simply reply to this post with the following info:
a). your name
b). your email
c). a link to view some of your work (myspace profile is acceptable if you have stuff on there, link us to those images). Don't worry if you've never done any t.shirt designs, we just want to see your style.
If your work is to our liking, you will get more details and a template for the t.shirt design. We will also give you some hi-res ninja tune logos/images to play with.
If your design is selected as one of the 8 finalists, it will be submitted to hundreds of retailers across the U.S., who will then pick their favorites to buy in mass quantities! If your design is selected to go into production we'll give you some kind of outrageous prize like $200 to spend in the ninjashop, or guestlist to shows, or you hang out with your favorite artist on the label for one whole day! (not really the latter, we can't promise that).
Ari Folman animated documentary could easily turn out to be one of the most powerful statements of this Cannes and will leave its mark forever on the ethics of war films in general. Dealing from a very personal point of view with the Israeli incursion into the Lebanon in 1982 and culminating with the Sabra and Shatila refugee camp massacre, which the Israelis did not perpetrate but surely tolerated, this is not only a tremendously potent anti-war movie but also a formidable moral indictment of Israeli conduct at that time.
