MEUTE - You & Me (Flume Remix)

Meute is an eleven-piece self-described techno marching band from Germany. The band arranges Techno, House, and Deep House works by well-known DJs, augmenting them with electronic beats created by marching band instruments. In doing so, they seek to create a new genre by combining hypnotic driving techno and expressive brass band music, thereby detaching electronic music from the DJ desk. Meute have toured Europe, America, and southern Africa in their four-year history and have performed in a variety of venues, including city streets, music festivals, and classical concert halls.

DJ Krush is known as the father of Japanese trip and hip-hop. His sounds create a unique dark downtempo atmosphere. Toshinori Kondo is one of the top trumpeters from Japan. The combination of a turntablist such as Krush and the trumpeting of Kondo seems like it wouldn't be a match. Yet, the mixture once again proves that Krush's ability to produce with live musicians creates very impressive and moving results. The cover of "Sun Is Shining" by Bob Marley was included in their collaboration album "Ki-Oku" that released in 1996 and was mixed by Koichi Matsuki.

Παίζουνε συνολικά μαζί έξι χρόνια μέχρι το 1983. Το 1980-81 ηχογραφεί δύο κασέτες, την «ΠΟΛΙΤΕΙΑ» και το «ΞΕΝΕΡΩΜΑ» που έχουνε περίπου τα ίδια τραγούδια σε διαφορετικές εκτελέσεις. Το 1984 μαζί με το Μάκη Σημίτη δημιουργεί τους ΝODEAD και ηχογραφεί την κασέτα «Άσπρο - Μαύρο», που θα μπορούσε να χαρακτηριστεί σαν ένα είδος new wave-ethnic. Από αυτήν την κασέτα προέρχεται και το κομμάτι «Τι νέα απ' τον Πλανήτη σου».

Molchat Doma - Tancevat

Molchat Doma is a band operating on the borderlines of post-punk, new-wave and darker ends of synth-pop, hailing from Belarus, playing music that is dark and danceable at the same time. It is a perfect emulation of the genre yet instantly recognizable as theirs, with lyrics sung in Russian. On top of that – it sounds like a mix of everything a contemporary goth can wish for, and it also sounds an awful lot like the Belarusian band Molchat Doma (which translates as “Houses are silent”). Currently a trio with Egor Shkutko on vocal duties, Roman Komogortsev on guitar, synths, and drum machine. Including Pavel Kozlov on bass and synths. The song "Tancevat" (meaning "They danced") comes from their second LP, Этажи (pronounced Etazhi, meaning “Floors”) that was released in 2018.

John Maus - Cop Killer

When Body Count released the song Cop Killer in 1992, it was considered so inflammatory that Charlton Heston and vice president Dan Quayle joined forces in a hysterical but ultimately successful campaign to have it banned. John Maus's song of the same name, issued earlier this year, has yet to generate a similar level of controversy; probably because Maus is a cultish synthpop crooner who's replaced the incendiary rap-metal onslaught of the original with a maudlin electronic ballad that nobody is likely to interpret as incitement to murder a policeman. Yet Maus's eerie take on Cop Killer carries just as much subversive intent. "I've always wanted to do something with that lyric," says the excitable Minnesotan, words gushing out of him in an enthusiastic torrent. "Cop Killer is the perfect way of putting over the idea that any worthwhile political or artistic agenda should be seeking an undoing of the situation as it stands. Whether the status quo is a political state or a musical language, the idea should be to kill or overthrow that. The song's not about killing a human being, but about overcoming inhumanity; destroying the machinery that turns us toward an end other than ourselves."
