Killer Nu Groove / 90's NYC House style tracks on Tartelet

B FROM E (Frej Garcia Levin) represents a new generation of talented young artists making waves in Copenhagen. Of Mexican-Danish descent, and born and raised in the notorious tower blocks of the south-western suburbs of Copenhagen, the 27-year old is on the up-and- up. In high demand as the founder of boom bap rap group NATKAT, producer of pop outfit Ny Sensei (New Sensei) and head of tape-only label Buddahood, the multi-talent seems to have a hand in everything at the moment. His 2017 debut ‘Porno TR-XXX’ (C.U.P) saw some of the hottest names in the game spinning B FROM E at last year’s Dekmantel festival, resulting in offers from several well-known record labels.

His new record on Tartelet Records comes as four cuts exploring different paths of the garage house sound. The opener ‘Dark Energy’ is fueled by filthy breaks and a nostalgic theme that would not be out of place in an early Atari computer game. ‘The People (Dream Mix)’ is a trippy tour through subtle layered melodies, carried by a stripped-back groove.

On the B-side you will find ‘Positive Sister (2605 Tool)’: a chunky cut with a serious bassline. Saving the best for last, ‘You Will See’, rounds off the record in style. A feel-good tune that is sure to get plenty of spins this summer. HOT TIP!

Copenhagen’s Tartelet return with Dirk 81 who offers up "Pizza Trance". Dirk 81 is actually Tarelet label head Emil M. Nyholm. Having previously dropped a slew of tracks as Muff Deep and CTEPEO ‘57 (with Max Graef), the DJ and producer is blessing the universe with three cuts of dancefloor heaven under a new moniker lifted from his days tagging concrete walls in the 90s. Influences draw everywhere from disco, to African hi-life, dub, Underworld (!!), a few old trance records, and, of course, timeless house music. Recorded over a year in Berlin and Copenhagen, the record kicks off with “M.F.C”, a disco-afro-house hybrid oozing with Roland Jupiter 6 keys and some funky drums processed on old equipment from the former USSR. The B-side spreads things deep and delicious with “Pizza Trance (Main Mix),” a euphoric serving of sounds that substitutes pepperonis and pineapples for glittering sequencers and a bangin’ bass drum. The EP’s closer tastes like a bit of both, mixing up some more acid sounds into the recipe for a retro-sounding house track. It’s another tasty delight from the label that will fulfil any and all late-night cravings.

Through releases from the likes of Glenn Astro, Muff Deep, Brandt Brauer Frick and CTEPEO' 57, Copenhagen's Tartelet Records have become a coterie for an auspicious breed of modern-day oddball. Opting for analogue gear, the Tartelet mainstays bring together lopsided sampling and loose-limbed rhythms suffused with a distinctive degree of restless energy. The next instalment comes courtesy of Nigerian born vocalist, songwriter and Max Graef collaborator, Kesiana a.k.a Wayne Snow. His vinyl debut, "Red Runner" sees the Berlin based producer drop a deluge of soul over grubby Rhodes tones, contorted melodies and tumbling drums backed up by remixes from Glenn Astro and Delusions of Grandeur regulars Session Victim. The title track rubs Snow's harmonised vocal lines against choked horn stabs and chugging guitar flashes as the basement soul bassline keeps everything grooving along nicely. "Blue Moon" sees the producer flip the script, cooking up a slow burner which softly gallops like a Dilla record making use of stuttered shuffles and granular drum samples. Glenn Astro & Imyrmind are first to tuck into the remix buffet, injecting some bump and rattle into the rhythm section and adding some short circuiting synth stabs for a little extra melodic punch. The ever soulful Session Victim transform Snow's original into a tightly coiled dancefloor spring, bursting with spiraling synth energy and laid back funk. Another winner for Tartelet and an assured debut for a producer with a big future ahead of him.
