Orakel – When Time Doesn’t Know Itself

More music by the way of Austria comes from an outfit called Orakel. I got excited when I found this in my inbox and read the list of collaborators: the legendary Dwight Trible, Microkorg wizard Dorian Concept or drummer Richard Eigner, who has already worked with Flying Lotus and is one half of Ritornell.

More snippets from the album can be heard on this album teaser. Fans of artists such as Jazzanova and Build an Ark should keep an eye out for the album, it’s scheduled for a release on 4lux anytime soon.

The 2xLP will be available in limited quantities only, but you can already pre-order your copy from Rush Hour.

May 16, 2011 It took a while, but the album is finally available and can be ordered from Rush Hour, Juno or Clone!

Volume 04 – mixed by Ka§par

When I spoke to Ka§par about making a feature, we weren’t quite sure when or where we first met. We agreed it must have been around 2002 and it was the 4hero forum, that brought us together. Having been a fan of his music for just that long, it was inevitable to ask him for a mix.

Ka§par is Lisbon-based Joao Pires, a longtime DJ and producer. He started putting out records in 2004 with his former partner Jackzen. Together they contributed a broken beat flavoured tune for the Transcendances compilation on the Portuguese Groovement label. Another notable record of the duo is the hard to find Transatlantic Twist EP on which they remixed Moonstarr.

As a solo artist, Ka§par does more house-oriented music, ranging from soulful to dubby sounds. Last year saw the release of the Mamilo EP on 4lux, another record on Groovement followed this year. And this was only a first teaser to his soon to be released album.
