GBs - "Lucky In Vichy" (Gomma) FOR FREE

Teamed up with Georg Baer some while ago in Munich.
Blessed by the Cosmic City´s Italodisco legacy we came up with that tune.
A track that just came out as a limited vinyl copy on Gomma back then and moved the dancefloors very nicely.

Georg, may the force be with you.

Enjoy and holiday vibes to all of you from India.

The Incredible Exploited Records Bang Bang Show !!!

You are cordially invited to the Three Year Anniversary of Exploited Records!!! Exploited Records is one of electro's most consistently bold and genre-redefining labels. Energetic, fun and unexpectable. We have invited all our friends that have contributed to the label in the last 3 years. Be sure to expect some unannounced Big Special Guests as well.

HOMEWORK

After years of bringing the freshest underground house sounds to an ever-growing following in their home town of Amsterdam, these two were catapulted onto the underground house clique following by releases on Exploited and Made To Play. This will be Homework's Berlin Debut.

MALENTE&DEX
Wot u call it? Sahara House? Expect the unexpected. This chart topping duo is sure to bring some middle eastern vibes with sitar loops, some Balkan fun combined with jaunty house, to sum it up, they will make you bounce off the walls.

MOWGLI
With his imprint Deadfish, Italian producer Mowgli has created a very fresh new housesound. His creations are fun filled, quirky house music with the influx of ethnic samples.

SAVAGE SKULLS
Savage Skulls compose fast-paced, elegant and generally ridiculous dance music in their shared studio, and are enjoying some well- deserved international success. Stay tuned for an exciting 2011 that will see them releasing an EP on Exploited and Sound Pellegrino, as well as unveiling a brand new collaborative project with Crookers called Dr. Gonzo.

GNUCCI BANANA
A girl from Yugoslavia makes dancefloor bangers fusing the hype of turbofolk and the jivey pizaz of township house with dancehall and hip-hop. Gnucci Banana's been blowing minds with her sassy raps on tracks as well as her wild stage antics.

SHIR KHAN
Besides being the head honcho of Exploited, Shir Khan is an accomplished DJ and remixer, not to mention promoter of his Berlin Night "Berlin Battery" and host of his weekly show on Radio Fritz. After a small break he is back in full effect - remixing as well as working on his first solo tracks to be heard in early 2011 finally!

JACK TENNIS
Jack Tennis was resident DJ at "Rio" and "Scala", two parties, who literally revolutionized the music scene in Berlin. Also, he works as a producer and remixer with releases on munichs hipster label "Gomma" or "What What Records". His sound always combines electronic beats peppered with some soul and funk. Jack Tennis is - alongside DJ Supermarkt and Shir Khan - a member of the music blog Berlin Battery.

ULTRAMOODEM
Ultramoodem has been the resident VJ of the Berlin Battery Partys and has contributed many video flicks for Exploited. Expect some Vanilla Ice-DIY-over the top-Styles.

Introducing: Parus

Been working on some music with an outstanding new band from Berlin for a while.


... so please let me introduce:


PARUS


Former Les Titz Grands are joining the dots between Falco, Michael jackson and New Order.
Please give their new tracks a listen - a comment would be awesome.

we will take your opinion under cosideration while finalizing their first EP.

BERLIN FESTIVAL feat. Berlin Battery


It was clear from the start: Berlin Festival’s line-up wasn’t quite completed just yet: Our “travel agents” let us dangle for six whole weeks to announce the final additions to this year’s line-up at Tempelhof Airport.

However, it was well worth it, as we present striking rock’n’roll guests of honour: the reunited Gang Of Four (“To Hell With Poverty”) – pretty much the reference point for all British bands of the last ten years – will perform their only show in Germany of 2010 at Tempelhof Airport!
Another delightful festival performer that we are very much looking forward to: Edwyn Collins is back! After his long and severe illness, the indie icon (Orange Juice, “A Girl Like You”) is about to release a brand-new album in September and invited some friends to support him. We hope, of course, that Collins will be performing his Berlin Festival gig with just a little help from his friends, namely members of Franz Ferdinand, The Drums, The Smiths and many more who recorded the album with him.
The musical journey goes on: Tahiti 80 from France will deliver grand pop sound, soul and indie rock. A trip to the coastal strips of France – downright perfect for Berlin Festival. The Californian equivalent will be flown in to the German capital as well: The Morning Benders are about to make an appearance.

>From Reykjavík, Iceland, the magical Amiina will also travel to Berlin. They have been accompanying Sigur Rós on tour for quite a while. Amiina will perform their brand-new songs in Tempelhof: elfish classical electro folk tunes at its best.
Only a short trip away, the boys surrounding Enno Bunger will begin their journey to Berlin in Northern Germany: smart lyrics and “at least five great hits” (Intro) are part of their luggage. Please unpack immediately on arrival!

However, our travel guide Conny Opper, co-founder of Berlin Festival, will take all visitors not only on a musical journey but on a cultural tour as well:
“It was clear from the start: an urban festival has to be accompanied by an urban art concept that will excitingly transform Tempelhof Airport in order to reveal the creativity and open-mindedness of Berlin. Since last year’s art projects were a big issue, this year’s Hangar Art Trail will enhance the emphasis on art even further. Gerrit Starczewski will present pictures of his nakedHEART project shot at Melt! Festival 2010. Action Painting Club will implement its project "t∆pc-mandala-constructions" live at the festival grounds while Nomad is about to ‘remix’ his graffiti walls. Paul Snowden, on the other hand, is once again responsible for the whole Berlin Festival artwork, and Robert Knoke is about to exhibit his fantastic portrait series of musicians and artists. Last but not least, Crystal Mafia will launch decent photo booth action galore…!

Of course, the legendary Mobile Disko will make its festival appearance with even more features than last year. This time, the boys of the Berlin Battery Crew feat. Shir Khan, DJ Supermarkt, and Jack Tennis will rock the Disko. Berlin’s Sick Girls will present their first mix album (live as well). Hugo Capablanca will be presenting his new project Los Massieras (Bananamania Records). There’s even more to see and hear. So you won’t just be able to look forward to Berlin Festival’s music performances but an overall audio-visual festival experience!”


Berlin Festival 2010 - The Final Line-Up:

Friday, 10th September:
Editors, Fatboy Slim, LCD Soundsystem, Fever Ray, Atari Teenage Riot, Robyn, Adam Green, 2manydjs (live), Blood Red Shoes, Caribou, Erol Alkan, Junip, Herman Dune, Goose, Mit, Norman Palm, Zola Jesus, Barbara Panther, Amiina, Bon Homme, Le Corps Mince Du Francoise, De Staat, Spleen United, Megaphonic Thrift, Jesse, Cast Of Cheers, Therese Aune, Boemklatsch, Berlin Battery Crew feat.

Summer in 3/4 Time (3/4-tel takt) dj-Mix by Jens Lekman


I'm a big fan of Jens Lekman for years now. What a nice idea of him to make us HAPPY with a dj-mix of a very diffrent kind! This is romantic, but clever, and very creative, especially when the mix travels smoothly between 60's waltzes and african music! Best summer mix this year, by MILES AND MILES!

This is what Jens Lekman says about his mix:

"I got the opportunity to remix my favourite song from Au Revoir Simone's beautiful album Still Night, Still Light. While listening to the song I realised how nice it'd be to transform their straight 4/4 time synthpop into a whirlwind waltz or maybe a barcarole if you will. It took a long time to chop up all the syllables and the tiny tiny samples, but I think the result got the song into a whole swirling new direction.

While making the remix, my mind started working in 3/4 and 6/8 time. I started looking around for tracks in that time signature to make a mix, I wasn't intending to but I couldn't help it. It was all a big swirl. After a while I heard it everywhere. In soul ballads, in polyrhythmical african pop, in old movies. In the ocean waves tumbling in against the shore, in the beat of a lovers heart. One two three, one two three..."

http://soundcloud.com/twentyfourbit/a-summer-in-3-4-time

tracklist:

Au Revoir Simone - Shadows (Jens Lekman's remix) /// Barbara Mason - Oh How It Hurts /// Thomas Mapfumo - Madiro /// the Morning Benders - Excuses /// dialogue from Gregory's Girl (1981) /// Chad & Jeremy - Everyone's Gone To The Moon /// music and dialogue from Day Of The Locust (1975) /// Eggstone - Birds In Cages /// Pete Drake - Forever /// Armando Mantovani - Around the World /// dialogue from Puberty Blues (1981) /// Jane Morgan & the Troubadours - Fascination /// Armando Trovajoli - L'Amore Dice Ciao /// Sharon O'Neill - Puberty Blues /// Like A Sleepy Blue Ocean

HEUTE * COOP SUMMER OPEN AIR * PICKNICK * WAD MAGAZINE * BREAKBOT...!


Fashion Week is in Berlin and that means billions of clubevents. One party we would like to recommend is from our friend Conny.
Remember Breakbot? Of course you do. We fell in love with his HAPPY RABBIT-7inch Single 3 years ago which was released on the great label MOSHI MOSHI. We also invited him to our Berlin Battery Party at Cookies when only a few people knew of him. Now Breakbot is back in town....signed to Ed Banger Records...and still makes us smile for his great productions. Even greater also our friend Siriusmo did a remix for him...ok enough Chit Chat. Also on the lineup are Acid Washed and Diskokaine. We do like them as well. Check the flyer for all details and here is what the infos says:
"The Parisian fashion magazine WAD MAGAZINE is coming all the way from Paris to party with us during BERLIN FASHION WEEK. After organizing legendary parties in Paris and for the Bread & Butter in Barcelona, the WAD magazine is coming for the first time to Berlin. They are bringing some of the finest music that France has to offer, mixing it up with the coolest Berlin hipster shit and some international homies. Best party for Fashion Week & Bread & Butter, last COOP party before summer break, first WAD party in Berlin in the best club in town. There is no excuse - this Thursday night is PICKNICK night!"

Shir Khan launches SHIR KHAN + EXPLOITED REC-Podcast

Hi friends. Since I have collected so many DJ-mixes of mine in the past and still do my weekly radioshow, I decided to launch a personal SHIR KHAN Podcast.
I will update this podcast weekly with fresh mixes of mine but also upload some old stuff. Expect to hear Radiosessions, Liverecordings from Clubs, Classic Mixes of mine + some Guestmixes from Friends. You can directly sign up via I-Tunes and always stay in touch with Shir Khan's sound:)
Furthermore, I have also launched a labelpodcast for my label: Exploited. You will hear mainly mixes of artists that have made a release or a remix on Exploited (first up are SIRIUSMO, LORENZ RHODE, MALENTE&DEX, CONSISTENT),but you can also expect to have some friends featured on there who we just appreciate as musicans, friends, djs, record-collectors.
Spread the word.

SUNKISSED - lazer synth indie disco 2010, a dj-mix by DJ SUPERMARKT


I just love that mixture of synth-disco with indie-dream-pop, that has been coming out of nowhere (well, actually mostly from Australia) since last year.

This dj-mix is the result of a long night in Picknick Club Berlin. made me feel good to play that sound, and people went mad for it (no surprise, after i tortured them for 2 hours with slick 70s softrock-disco). I reconstructed the mix at home, as far as i could remember...(sorry)

I am a bit tired of today's club music, because it misses a good portion of soul. Here you can drown in it: Funky Love Music!

sounds best while dancing with a campari in your hand and a lady in your arm!

new "dj-mix" by JARVIS COCKER for National Trust


JARVIS COCKER has been a "hidden" hippie all those years. But on PULP's last album "we love life" (R.I.P.) he crowned his wisdom with these beautiful lyrics:

"yeah, the trees, those useless trees,
produce the air, that i am breathing,
yeah, the trees, those useless trees,
they never said that you were leaving"

Now he produced a "dj-mix" for The National Trust, which is maybe the first mix without.... music! It is just nature sounds from the british countryside. It is aimed to clear your ears from all that ipod rubbish. Great idea, Mr Cocker.
you can download it here for free, which is nice, because it can actually save your life or sanity!:

Siriusmo - Wow


Not long ago we (Exploited Records) got a message from "Waltz Industries", a young international company of electronic music videos.
The canadian director Martin Waltz, based in L.A. and Toronto, who is going to direct his first feature-length film in Hollywood in a few months and already worked with a lot of projects (music videos, advertisements, shorts...) and also famous names such as Chris Cunningham liked Siriusmo so much that he did this video for free for him. Actually the images were originally supposed to be for a short movie but werent used in the end. So Martin Waltz made a music video for Siriusmo's classic anthem "Wow". We were really happy to receive this - though we must admit that somehow this is not the offical version even if you thought so.

Munk - La Musica (Shir Khan Remix)




I did a mix for my homie Mathias Modica from Munk. This is his new single LA MUSICA which is out on GOMMA via Beatport now.
Guess what - Karl Lagerfeld used my remix in his first short film "Remember Now". Its so far nearly my biggest remix I guess - even if its very deep and most of you probably didnt expect this. Already getting props from Luciano, Laurent Garnier, Ellen Alien, Luna City Express, Djuma Soundsystem, Zombie Disco Squad, Renaissance Man and many more.
You can listen to the mix in my Soundcloud or buy it directly at Beatport.
