Shigeto
A blessing in disguise
Raised in Ann Arbor Michigan Zach Saginaw aka Shigeto soon got in touch with the local scene that consisted of Mayer Hawthorne, Dabrye and many more. Early on it was already clear that the drums would be his instrument. Through his brother he got in touch with making beats. Saginaw stands for his fragile sound which he pairs with his live drumming, creating clouds of sound, which are beautifully produced. Valentin Menedetter met him in Vienna.

Gold Panda
Just to make it better
Last year’s Lucky Shiner was one of the records, where the Beat-enthusiasts, the Caribou-listener and the electronic nerd come together sharing the headphones. Since then Gold Panda is on the move, releasing an EP here and there, collecting old material for the fans and working on new stuff, and moving to Hamburg. Valentin Menedetter met him for an interview and explains the basics.

Lusine
Sensorimotor
Likable? Yeah, so what! Lusine’s at least tenth record »Sensorimotor« was created in such an elaborate and affectionate way that it’s OK if everyone likes it.

Matrixxman
Homesick
The works of a dystopian anachronist: With»Homesick«, the U.S.-musician Matrixxman is summing up the aporia of techno. A record yearning for a future.

Gold Panda
Half Of Where We Live
No one samples as versed as Gold Panda. His first record in three years would have been real good, if only he had made an EP out of it.

Matthew Dear
Beams
On his fifth record, Matthew Dear sounds more than ever like his great idols Brian Eno and David Bowie, and even seems to be a bit ahead of himself.

Mux Mool
Planet High School
Those who know Mux Mool from Facebook know that he’s one funny fellow. Sadly, his new album doesn’t sound like that – instead, it’s almost conservative beat-making.
