90’s revival, oldschool house, deep house, slow mo, nu disco… none of these genres are quite what New-York based label Clown and Sunset is looking for. For bossman Nicolas Jaar, experimental bohemian jazz is the new black in the fields of electronica. The new face of the label, Acid Pauli, is a musical genius and tastemaker who plays in three bands, released a track on a Björk album and went out for a tea with Michael Nyman (british producer and composer of endless movies soundtracks) to discuss future projects. He has just released a compilation on Crosstown Rebels (Get Lost V, which is simply delightful – preview my fav here – and will be here soon) but his new album “Mst” is the goodie of the day here at the PitchPie.

Where the boundaries between Disco/House, Indie-Pop and Electronic music become fluid, comes John Talabot’s debut album for German dancefloor institution, Permanent Vacation. The Spanish native has followed a steady consistency since first appearing on the scene in 2009 with ‘My Old School’, followed by sought-after aces on Hivern Disc and Young Turks, his debut single “Matilda’s Dream” plus a stack of remixes for everyone from Teengirl Fantasy to The xx. His first LP, fin, is a distillation of his defined tastes, weaving nine tracks which could easily fit into any of the categories above, but essentially just do their own thing, very stylishly.
Have a listen to the two singles “So Will Be Now…” and “Destiny”, both featuring Madrid’s producer/singer Pional:
If you like it, I suggest the download of his latest mix for FACT magazine, with an atmospherically fluid and disco-kissed vibe here.
Pitchpie proudly presents an album that was born in Brazil and made entirely by DJs and producers André Torquato & Paulinho Boghosian. Osunlade was the Executive Producer of this amazing work, worthy of our best critics. The tracks are being sold at Beatport and iTunes Store.
A little something about it:
Yoruba Records proudly presents Torquato & Boghosian. The first full length project from Torquato, this time alongside his newfound partner in crime, Boghosian. Since the success of the Niente Ep release, the two hailing from Brazil decided to create a full length to express the soulful, spitirual, artistic expression and love of african percussion and old school house mixed with more modern electronic timbres and vocals which at times are mere whispers, at times poems. With this project the duo went deep into their influences from deep house to world music in the attempt to translate their musical roots of brazil and beyond. We hope get in touch with the innermost and intimate feelings this album transmits to the soul.
After a period of closure, English label Renaissance returns to the scene with another Master Series, this time remixed by the label’s old friend Dave Seaman. The new series will host a release party in London on november 4th and plans to recreate the ambience of Renaissance’s parties at The Cross, this time at bohemian Shoreditch. Revivals, already?
The double CD follows the same success formula of previous products from the brand, delivering a first volume in a lighter vibe and the second one a bit more heavy on the beat-sphere. About the mix, the label shows variety on picking tracks and familiarity on choosing Seaman: “Dave has long been a favourite of Renaissance and his previous contributions to the series have been amongst the most popular and best, so we were very pleased that he agreed to take up the reins once more. He uses those years of experience to deliver, over two discs, a defining chapter in his illustrious career; both in track selection and execution. Introducing tracks from a variety of electronic sub-‐genres and editing most of them specifically for the CD, Dave is able to create a spellbinding and sometimes surprising mix.”

It is time for BS: Benoit and Sergio – who gave these letters, when put together, a whole different perspective. They’re my new favourite thing in the world other than cheese bread, and this remix is simply enlightening, adding an unnusual disco-ish feeling to Friendly Fires’ great track.
