Info for Great Memories
Although our sound was born and raised in Germany, our hearts are tied to Canada. After years spent building connections with overseas artists that share our passion for directional music and quality production, Klangscheiben is proud to present KSR 036, a various artist compilation featuring a hand- picked roster of talented Canadian artists.
Ahead of the Klangscheiben Canadian tour, KSR 036 welcomes our friends and fellow artists in Montreal and Toronto to the label, resulting in a 10 track compilation that explores every corner of minimal, techno, and left-field electronica. Klangscheiben newcomer and Goodnight Moon labelboss Stefny Winter starts us off with “Monoriser,” a deep, groovy number followed up with a staccato minimal piece from Montreal’s Ozen. Twin brothers and Klangscheiben labelmates Matt and Mark Thibideau each provide input, the former’s a gradual min tech build-up with a dizzying bassline, the latter’s a take on stormy, significant minimal. Montreal analog act Little Cloud’s “Ice Queen” represents her polished mysticism and alt-ambient tendencies, while Hooll’s “Casual Thought” comes multi-layered and full of sound, a perfect transition into the equally complex “Earth Angel” from Flandez. Chicago-bred, Montreal- based producer Billy Dalessandro’s “The Tick Runs the Time Machine” provides a hint of underwater weirdness. Hushlamb’s ana+one and Alicia Hush close out the release -- ana+one’s track, “Stick on the Ice,” a steady minimal beat, Alicia’s a dose of melodic optimism called “Sunny on Toast.”
A compilation dedicated to funk and pre – zouk period, which has never been documented before. It is compilated by specialists of the genre: Julien Achard (Digger's Digest) and Nicolas SKLIRIS (ex-Superfly Records).
After the success of Kouté Jazz, Heavenly Sweetness comes back with a dancefloor but not jazz compilation, enough to move your feet at through the whole summer ! 13 disco, boogie and Zouk tracks recorded in the 80’s in the West Indies.
The advantage of this selection is precisely that it reveals a broader spectrum than the zouk music style that are badly defined. Most of the tracks, were not much broadcasted even if interpreted by some big names in Caribbean music (Pierre-Edouard Decimus / Patrick St. Eloi / Eddy La Viny). They were too fast classified as Zouk. These Tracks reveal this will of singularity, this merger between traditional and other rhythms genres (funk, disco, afro-beat, Latin Brazilian ...), with the addition of new instruments such as synthesizers and drums machine in the creative process.
In many zouk’s albums, this period often included one or even several, tracks that were qualified as "proto-zouk" and "funky-zouk" or the "boogie-zouk" to emphasize the fusion of genres . But these tracks have remained unknown to the general public because only the "hits" were played on the radio, dance floors (the famous "tan" or “zouk”), clubs and bus.
This album contains no booklet.
