huge_avatar Jan Jelinek brings us some amazing cuts. Jazz, ambient and deep analog sound all together in an endless journey. loops with dreamy pads with smooth distortions from another, alternative Berlin scene. Jan Jelinek aka Farben insists in certain kind of music and he keeps his particular style during many years of production. He is also running the label Faitiche.

Tonight we  pick up a special record by Jan Jelinek released on ~scape on 200, Loop Jazz Finding Records. All the tracks of the LP are characterised by a delicate, spacey atmosphere. Deep, jazzy background with dubby pads.  The ambient tracks such as Moire are giving a cinematographic air to the whole album. It seems like a continuum, the evolution of story from the first until the last track, Drift like a modern version of a film noir. The whole album is a must for your record collection.

Artists: Petar Dundov (HR)

petar-dundov-

Petar Dundov (HR) is a pure lover of techno and ambient music  that literally takes you to another world. Intelligent and  timeless sound. A perfect marriage of contemporary and vintage vibes with trancey undertones.

All this reflected in his production and releases mainly on Music Man Records. His music can convience even the most rebellious and  demanding ears. For those who even question the genre. Breathtaking melody pads and synths coming together with smooth beats and mesmerising groove.

He counts numerous participations in several important venues and festivals such as I Love Techno, EXIT, Awakenings and Wire, and cutting-edge clubs like Berghain, Matter (RIP), Womb, Air, Fuse and Space.

We cite here few words from his own website that we absolutely adore: Petar Dundov makes intelligent electronic music that breaks boundaries, moves feet and twists minds. He is without a doubt one of the most inspiring, original and daring producers in electronica, and with the likes of Sven Väth, Francois K, Laurent Garnier, Adam Beyer, Josh Wink, Guy J, Glimpse, Hernan Cattaneo, Brendan Moeller, and Danny Tenaglia amongst his fans, it would be hard to disagree.

On his web site you can find an amazing, representative selection of some of his masterpieces along with some videos and a list of upcoming shows. Is time to dance on real music.

Among all  his record releases we highlight his Sailing Off The Grid LP released on 2013 by Music Man Records.  A record needs to included in  your collection. White Spring is the ultimate deep acid tune that we really love and we share with you today. A beautiful melancholic soundtrack for the New Age expressed by a crying synth.

Intelligent sound for intelligent, wandering minds.

T.O.P. Interview: Peur Bleue Records (London,Paris)

Some days ago we have presented, as one of the EPs we love, the Beyond Time-Interpretations EP by Nummer on Peur Bleue (Nummer • Beyond Time – Interpretations / EP / Peur Bleue Records PBR004). We are glad to share with you a really interesting and inspiring interview by Anatole one of the duo of the label, based in London.He is answering to our questions, giving us an idea of the concept behind this label and its philosophy. We welcome Peur Bleue records on Tales of Psychofonia, with the first interview for 2015.

1. How did Peur Bleue come about?Where are you based? What is behind that mysterious black & white Peur Bleue?

Originally we’ve decided to create the label Peur Bleue Records for the release of my album (Gohan – Peur – PBR001). It was quite a natural idea as I was already writing and posting some stuff on my blog called… Peur Bleue.

I’m based in London and my brother, in charge of the graphic design, is based in Paris.

We are trying to incorporate the idea of using a wide range of sources and samples with our musical and visual identity. The détournement ideology is key for us, we’re always – intentionally or not – working with that idea in mind.

We obviously like industrial and punk aesthetic, but to be fair it’s not really a controversial statement nowadays. Oh, and we are not necessarily black&white die-hards!

2. We really love your last EP.  Can you tell us a little bit about your last release Interpretations- Beyond Time EP and your collaboration with Nummer?

I’ve met those two rascals (Nummer) through friends. I was quite excited when I heard their tunes and we started to work together on the direction for an EP. That was their first release and our first vinyl release so we had both a bit of pressure, but they managed to find their ‘sound’ through the EP and the feedback on it were great.

3. We are trying not to put  labels on music although sometimes is inevitable. Could you give us a description or just  an idea of what music you represent. What is the main core of your sound?

It is a legitimate question but extremely difficult to answer! I have no idea about the genre we are ‘representing’ but from my point of view I conceptualise each release like a movie soundtrack. It’s an interesting and recurrent analogy about our releases. We seek a sort of narrative basis in our releases, no matter their final destination from a stuffy dancefloor to a musique concrete concert hall, it doesn’t matter at all, we love both.

4. Can you name some influences, either records or artists?

Wow there are so many, that would take ages! In terms of London labels, I really dig Blackest Ever Black and Trilogy Tapes releases among plenty of other great labels. I am also big fan of the current Dutch scene with labels like Viewlexx, Murder Capital, Pinkman,  Crème Organization, Chronocircle and the new label Knekelhuis. In terms of artists, I’ve been particularly obsessed with the music of Gesloten Cirkel, Call Super, Mica Levi, Future or DJ Overdose in 2014.

5. We like the discrete, underground but at the same time elegant profile  of yours as this is presented on your web page. Are you planning any label nights?

We used to organise nights but it came to a point where it wasn’t really interesting artistically and too much hassle and stress. But we’re planning to organise label nights again this year if we find a good venue and why not some help for a promoter. We’d love to present Nummer’s 100% analog live as well.

6. What are your next steps? Any future collaborations?

We’re a small label so our schedule is not planned for the next two years like for some big labels, but we have a couple releases ready for 2015. Though our release schedule is really slow since we start the production of the next imprint once we are comfortable with the sales of the previous release. On a mid-term perspective we’ll be hopefully less relient on this model.

We’d love to collaborate with new artists in the future, unknown and established ones, it doesn’t really matter to us. We’re always pleased to receive new demos and we try to give some feedback for all of them.

7. Which record would you choose to welcome  2015?

My EP obviously! It’s called ‘Stabbed In Konya’ with a limited pressing of 300 copies. More info to come over January about it. The release date is planned for February, keep it locked!

Moguz as producer has collaborated with Sezen Aksu , considered one of the greatest Turkish composers at the moment.

Moguz uses the term ethnic techno to describe his music, coming from the middle east his sound is certainly left of centre  Slow beats with inside out, sexy jazz and great oriental vibes from an artist who keeps it original and above all, classy.

A left of centre sound where the eastern atmosphere meets the western groove is the result of tonight´s podcast.

Thank you Moguz!
