Music producer Die Wilde Jagd releases new song ‘Morgenrot’



The second instalment of minimood's multidisciplinary fusion series features Die Wilde Jagd with an extensive rework of the neo-romantic ’Morgenrot’ as well as a vast array of diverse remixes by Ancient Methods, CV313, Luigi Tozzi, Roman Flügel, Rude 66, Steve Bug, The KVB, Vactrol Park, and Variant. This gatefold 3x12" vinyl-only release is visually enhanced with intricate hand-drawn artwork including inlay by Dusseldorf based artist Susanne Giring.

Written and recorded by Sebastian Lee Philipp with his Uhrwald Orange studio collaborator Ralf Beck, ’Morgenrot’ originally appeared on Die Wilde Jagd's debut album in 2015. For this release, Philipp and Beck re-visited the song: the ensuing ‘Fangschuss Version' enjoys an augmented arrangement, additional instrumentation and a haunting guest vocal by New- Zealand based singer Nina Siegler. In Philipp’s words, the 'Fangschuss Version' constitutes “a venture to capture the spirit that has been guiding this fusion release - a desire to explore the concepts of friendship, time, distance and memory. An attempt to unveil fragments of the unseen and to reveal the surge of a distant remembrance in an embracive listening experience."

'Morgenrot' subsequently gets a highly varied remix treatment by a range of carefully selected artists. While Vactrol Park navigate the original audio material into beautiful ambient territory, Ancient Methods showcase an epic masterpiece of enchanting medieval-vibed techno. The KVB turn the track into a dreamy cold-wave trip and Rude 66 dives into a dark, primetime, anthemic dimension. For Roman Flügel, it’s a slow, organic, starry-eyed approach and Luigi Tozzi transforms 'Morgenrot' into hypnotic & loopy, minimal, deep techno. The rework by Steve Bug plays with the original's melody and a danceable kosmische-infused house cut emerges. The final two remixes are both crafted by legendary Echospace Detroit mastermind Stephen Hitchell: absorbing deep trips into mesmerizing dub techno by CV313 and into foggy lo-fi ambient by Variant.

Learn more about the two songs by Koresma that are going to carry you into 2020


Every now and then you’ll come across an artist and wonder why they’re not a household name. The ambient electronic producer Koresma has seemed to set the stage for his own success and we believe within the next few years, he truly will be a household name. His release of ‘New Frontier’ just reaffirms our belief of this.


On Soundcloud, he shares: “'New Frontier' is a soft house tune that uses lush E-piano chords, atmospheric violins, and a shuffling house beat to propel into your sonic adventure. The goal of this tune is to inspire hope and sense of adventure through the music. For myself getting out and exploring always leads to freedom and lots of growth. This song is about the new paths and roads that we haven’t travelled, yet are eager to explore.”

You may have previously heard of him via his track, ‘Bridges’ which has amassed nearly 6 million plays across Spotify and Soundcloud. Koresma allows himself to connect with his fans as he has also divulged information on this track:

“This song was inspired by the idea of how bridges connect people and places. Music is one of the biggest connecting things for us and it brings people together regardless of race, language, culture, beliefs, and beyond.”

Musical duo Wajatta announces new album ‘Don’t Let Get You Down’



Wajatta — the musical duo of Reggie Watts and John Tejada — return with their second album, “Don’t Let Get You Down”, to be released by Brainfeeder on 28 February 2020. Coming from different worlds, but sharing a passion for the rich history of electronic music, beat-boxer/comedian/musician Watts and electronic music artist/DJ/producer Tejada bring out the best in each other’s formidable skill sets. Where the duo’s debut album “Casual High Technology” hinted at the broad stylistic possibilities inherent in the marriage of Watts’ elastic, soul-stirring vocals and Tejada’s layered, melodically inventive productions, “Don’t Let Get You Down” makes good on that promise.

The first single from new 11-song LP, released today, is the infectious title track. With its brightly pulsing synths and whistling hook, ‘Don’t Let Get You Down’ is, in the words of Reggie Watts, “the poppiest song we’ve ever done.”

Wajatta (pronounced wa-HA-ta) is a mash-up of the artists’ last names. Having grown up with similar musical influences, Austrian-born Tejada and German-born Watts draw from their love of electronic music. Exploring the intersection between influences and innovation, the two describe Wajatta's music as “electronic dance music with its roots in Detroit techno, Chicago house, '70s funk and New York hip hop.” It’s a sound that is both familiar and wholly original — and, like all great dance music, ultimately life-affirming, as Watts vocalizes, sometimes without words, the joyful energy of his and Tejada’s funky, shape-shifting productions. “That’s the great thing about working with John,” Watts says with an infectious grin. “He’s so steeped in the history of this music. I just pick up on that and run with it.”

Wajatta builds most tracks from scratch, bouncing ideas off one another from initial spark to finished product. It’s all done face-to-face: “We never just share files,” Tejada notes. They also try to keep their sessions as spontaneous as possible, in a never-ending quest to, as Watts puts it, “capture the freshness.” As a result, the 11 tracks on “Don’t Let Get You Down” crackle with the energy of fresh ideas captured at the moment of inspiration. Its electronic music made organically, from two masters at the top of their respective games.

"Don't Let Get You Down" Tracklist:
1. Renegades
2. Little Man
3. Don’t Let Get You Down
4. Realize
5. Tonight
6. 138
7. January
8. Marmite
9. Depth Has a Focus
10. Another Sun
11. All I Need Is You

Music producer Franky Wah releases new song 'Shen'



UK talent, Franky Wah launches his own Shen imprint with two slices of underground gold, following on from this year’s huge ’Hide’ single ft. Robinson. Franky has a clear passion for emotive trance chords and big house drums with his slick studio efforts having picked up key radio support from tastemakers like Annie Mac and Pete Tong, while high profile club plays have come from the likes of Solomun and Tale of Us. All this comes after the classically trained pianist has left a trail of dance floor destruction in his wake with notable gigs everywhere from Glastonbury to Hideout, Abode Festival and to a famous after-hours set at Tobacco Dock. Now he takes the next logical step with the launch of his own label, Shen, and what better way to kick of proceedings than with a killer release from the man himself, one that once again shows off his limitless creativity and unique grasp of musical sensitivity.

Superb opener ‘Next Life’ is an emotional roller coaster of the highest order: the slick synths shimmer and shine up top like a heavenly vision, with rolling drums getting you deep into the groove. It’s the sort of hugely atmospheric track that will form the high point of any set and have crowds in raptures. On the flip, Wah exhibits a totally different sound with ‘Nightfall’, offering dusty breakbeats and a rugged groove that is overlaid with tender chords and twinkling cosmic keys. Deft vocal murmurs are stitched into the mix and once again this one will sweep clubbers off their feet and carry them away on a blissed-out wave of emotion. These are two expertly crafted tunes that offer real dance music poignancy way beyond the norm and mark another high point for this mostly hotly tipped artist.

Blackbird Blackbird garners beauty in the darkness with new single 'Collapse'



Blackbird Blackbird has fans waiting with bated breath for the imminent arrival of his next album Hearts on November 15. The young producer has also announced a string of live dates. To keep the metaphorical wolf from the door he's released a new single 'Collapse' - and it's a genuinely fresh new take on his style.

Mikey Maramag rose to prominence with his chillwave production style, and has seen attention from some of the most esteemed publications. Taking his name from the Beatles song, Blackbird Blackbird has shared the limelight with names like TOKiMONSTA, Nicolas Jaar, Tycho, Rusko, Emancipator, Crystal Castles, Foster The People and Chad Valley.

'Collapse' sees Maramag exploring the dark undercurrents of emotion - in a song he wrote about the devastation caused by the death of a loved one. As different as the track might be to his usual way of doing things, 'Collapse' strikes a chord deep within, reminding us that beauty can be garnered from even the darkest moments.


‘Collapse’ on Spotify - Apple Music
