Luca Musto – Nice Place, Bad Intentions LP

“Einsteigen Bitte!”

After more than six years of collaboration between label and artist, Feines Tier and Luca Musto bring to you the highly anticipated first full length LP “Nice Place, Bad Intentions”.

Musto’s first LP “Nice Place Bad Intentions” departs from the conventional 4/4 time signature. Instead, the album’s structure and the tracks themselves are reminiscent of a 1990s/2000s Hip Hop long play release. This becomes evident in the fact that the LP not only features 17 tracks, including skits and interludes, but also that they make up the framework of a conceptual album. Here, listeners will be encouraged to follow the track list and listen to “Nice Place, Bad Intentions” in one go.

“Nice Place, Bad Intentions” was produced over a period of 1,5 years. Besides the majority being original samples and vocals from Luca Musto, the LP also features a number of studio musicians, including bass players, trumpeters and guitarists. Cologne-based guitarist Simon Bahr can be found on several tracks, including the three singles “Infiltrate”, “Boogie Angst” and “Real Name, No Gimmicks”. Moreover, the skits and interludes are spoken by professional voice actors from the US and Canada.

The Berlin-themed album follows the characters Mick and Richie, who are all about partying and come to the city for one weekend in hopes to have the time of their lives. When the characters’ expectations meet reality, their naiveté (or bad intentions) lead them to getting screwed, robbed and even arrested. These stories about their journey through Germany’s capital are found in the interludes and skits. Listeners can follow them passing infamous places and metro stations in the city based on sampled BVG announcements, which gives the album a radio play vibe.

Sound-wise, Luca Musto’s unique sounds include scratched hooks that meet original lyrics and melodies, resulting in distinctive genre-bending tunes. As Mick and Richie stumble through some of Berlin’s most infamous places, their expectations repeatedly clash with the reality of the capital’s nightlife. Similarly the listeners’ expectations are twisted and turned. Yet, the soundtrack underlining the characters’ journey never disappoints and brings its listeners on a rhythmic trip of old and new sounds. From rapping on downtempo as in “City of Grind” to merging the classic structure of electronic music with funky guitar licks and unconventional chord transitions as in “Infiltrate”, the LP feels at once like a daring experiment and like the beginning of a developing new genre.

Kubebe & Leonor – Midnight Man EP

Two producers, a French and a Mexicano, who are living in two different cities in France have been composing an EP together. The guys have never crossed paths, and have still yet to meet in person. We are talking about Kubebe from Lille and Leonor from Tournus. The love that they have in common for each other’s music forged their desire for this collab to happen. The Midnight Man EP was created using a Ping Pong process, taking about two weeks. The result is a beautiful 80’s driven EP including one slower and one uplifting original as well as two splendid remixes by German synth master Lauer and the Swedish Elfenberg duo from Stockholm. What a package!


Hounah – Fairbanks (Single)

“Fairbanks” is the first single from Daniel Nitsch’s first album “Broken Land” of his latest project “Hounah”. Daniel invites for this song the Swiss singer Lena Schmidt. “Fairbanks” grants in a special way a deep look into their feelings and thoughts. Influenced by TripHop of the late early 1990s “Fairbanks” shows a soulful fusion of sounds. You can see that Daniel and his project “Hounah” obviously doesn’t like any preconceived patterns, being mentally on the way – and this beyond conventions.

The remixes come from the great Mexican producer Theus Mago and Canada’s finest dub-producer Deadbeat.
