Longplay love 20.0

Chica Discos goes ChillOut. After three successful dancefloor-focused compilations DJ Sin Plomo enters the decks again, mixing and compiling the new longplay outlet named "Chica Discos present Tranquilo - The Winter Island Lounge Mix" , which is - as the name suggests - on a balearic chill tip, a journey covering the whole spectrum from smooth Downbeat via DeepHouse to progressive sounds featuring artists like DJ Fex, Nalin & Kane, The Ministers Of Music, Spare Time and others. Although "Tranquilo - The Winter Island Lounge Mix" is a live turntable mix compilation one shouldn't expect a straight set here climaxing in the end as Sin Plomo's work on the decks is to be described as a selector, a guide through relaxing music which is pleasing ears and not necessarily dancefloors longing for forward pushing beats all the time.

Berlin-based Klas Lindblad a.k.a. Mr.Negative a.k.a. Freestyle Man is about to release his new album "Made Within The Upper Stairs Of Heaven" under his Sasse-moniker via his very own imprint Mood Music on May 22nd. Eleven tracks to be found here including Sasse's recent hit "Loosing Touch feat. Kiki" - all of them serving decent 80's & ItaloDisco influenced House sounds, slightly touched by minimalism and big grooves to please the crowd in tiny clubs on sophisticated dancefloors which are open for instrumental cuts as well as for vocal tunes as there's , apart from Kiki, guest vocalists like Losoul's Malte of Playhouse-fame, Jani Lehto and the infamous Bernadette La Hengst to be found on "Made Within The Upper Stairs Of Heaven". Nice for home listening, too.

German ElectroPunk-band Egotronic released their latest album entitled "...Die Richtige Entscheidung" ("...The Right Decision") on Audiolith Records recently containing a whole of 12 tracks providing political content german lyrics - sic!!!) accompanied by bleepy 8bit-sounds and LoFi electroid beats. Imagine a mixture of Mediengruppe Telekommander'esque attitude and Micromusic aesthetics to get a clue of what to expect here. Up for it?
