Johannes Klingebiel – Scream! EP

Johannes Klingebiel is back on Feines Tier with his „Scream!“ EP. After releasing two sold out vinyl EP’s and an album on the label we are proud to present new tunes once again – this time with a digital 5-tracker packed with nutritious festival food for all the day- and night-times this summer.
„Show Up“ is probably best served when the sun shows up and you can raise one hand in the air while sipping on your Spritz with other. The title track „Scream!“ goes in a darker and weirder direction, Johannes probably channeling his inner Kosi here with those tipsy cowbells and wonky sample pads flying around.
When the sun’s getting low and you can’t make out „The Forest For The Trees“ through all this fog and dry ice, just play the tune with that title. The warm piano and string chords will guide you through it all.
„Urgent Calls“ might be the most straightforward deep house track Johannes ever made, yet it still got that hazy trippy Klingebiel touch to it. Maybe this should be your new ringtone?
Closing out the EP is „Beyond“ with its mix of chord- and mind-bending synths and… brass instruments? Anyway, it makes us feel like we’re in a Western movie getting ready for a stand-off but accidentally had some edibles in our breakfast cereals and now everything is starting to melt into each other. And now? Hit repeat!

Kadosh & The Drifter – Jakarta EP

What a dream combo! Irish powerhouse and Maeve runner The Drifter  joins forces with the Israeli super talent of Frau Blau fame, Kadosh. The result is Jakarta, an elegant yet relentlessly effective and forceful tune built to elevate dance floors small and big(!) around the globe. It is one of those productions where all the elements fall into their suitable places so naturally that it’s made looking easy, which one might call an attribute of true craftsmanship.

The delicate mesh of synth stabs and chords, the sporadic vocal insertions, the efficient beat programming, everything is arranged to build a sum greater than its parts. We’re given two different variants of the track, the „Day“ and „Night“ version, which gives a clue about their respective qualities and intended use. But to be quite honest, we could also imagine the „Night“ version on a sunlit festival floor or the „Day“ version in a dark and sweaty warehouse. There have been dark days and bright nights after all, stranger things have happened. Whichever you end up choosing in any given moment, you most likely won’t be wrong.

Secret Factory – Neon Jaguar Odyssey EP

The Hungarian tinkerers of Secret Factory make their Feines Tier debut with the forceful Neon Jaguar Odyssey EP. 

And indeed the title track straight up sends us into a dizzying but satisfying whirlwind of emotions, with the rock-solid foundation of drums and bass guiding us through this odyssey safe and sound in the end. Similar things can be said about the follow-up „Metal Goblin“ with its simple yet catchy bassline loop building the groundwork for all the detuned percussions, confused vocal snippets and massive synth sounds. The result is a hypnotic snake charmer of a track, made for post-apocalyptic discotheques, all shiny and chrome. 

„Visions Of Joy“ doubles down on these vibes, impalpably luring us in with a stripped-down and brutally effective beat and tinges of oriental adjacent synth pads. The record-closing „Life After Birth“ starts out relatively innocent with broken drum machine patterns, but reveals itself to be another dance floor monster in the final minutes, cleverly layering analogue synth sounds on top of each other to lead us to a mesmerizing climax.
