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!

The Reboot Joy Confession Give-Away

Remember the debut release by The Reboot Joy Confession I was sporting a couple of weeks ago? A friend of mine spread the rumour that he was coming to São Paulo, so I was hoping to get in contact with the mysterious producer. Unfortunately, the meeting never took place, as I was in the UK at the time.

Label Artwork

I don’t check the house tab as often as I used to, but when I run across records like this, I wonder what other goodies I’m missing. This is the debut release by The Reboot Joy Confession on Soulphiction’s Philpot label.

Unfortunately, I can’t even tell you much about the artist (or artists?) as he prefers to remain anonymous. What I can tell you is this: on the a-side you will find a collaboration with the legendary Dwight Trible, known for his vocal contributions to the Pharoah Sanders Quartet or Build An Ark among others. Together they come up with a freeform electronic piece, a spiritual journey made of synthesizers, flutes and Dwight’s chanting, held together only by a loose hip-hop beat. The flipside comes with two more house-oriented tracks, a delight for fans of KDJ and the likes.

Spirit of the Planets is available now, I’ve spotted copies at Rush Hour and Juno Records, Boomkat also has digital formats available.

November 14, 2010 I have two copies to give-away, you can enter the competition here!
