KILLEKILL PODCAST #18: BORIS



The new podcast in our series comes from the great DJ BORIS, recorded live at the Killekill 015 record release/10 years of Pacotek party on november 22nd, 2013.
DJ Boris is kind of a charismatic, multifunctional weapon in the Berlin club life. His musical roots reach back to the mid 80s, when he lived in New York for four years where he absorbed the unique spirit of the seminal club Paradise Garage weekend after weekend. From the Club’s mentor Larry Levan Boris learned to believe in his musical intuition as well as a broad musical spectrum, which nowadays ranges from Disco, Hi-NRG, Post-Punk and (Kraut-) Rock to House and Techno, all of which Boris loves to throw into one set. „Music was most important for Levan. He was uncompromising and he knew how to convey it. That’s what I’m trying to achieve, too, when I’m djing.“

Many years later, Boris became a resident at Panorama Bar’s first incarnation in Berlin, where he was able to build a loyal following by playing long sets lasting until noon. „The crowd is always a lot more receptive for music at the end than at the beginning. That’s when I rather have the opportunity to present unusual stuff and that’s when I’m able to let my feelings run freely.“
After the old OstGut/Panorama Bar closed, Boris played in almost every club in Berlin, but when the follow up club Berghain opened its doors in 2004, he quickly focused on playing out here again. From 2005 till 2010 he had another musical platform, as he was taking care of the label Careless Records as an A&R. As a DJ, he is not exactly keen on refining a certain genre, but rather to push music with a certain twist.

KILLEKILL PODCAST #17: D’MARC CANTU



D'MARC CANTU is someone whose music we have been in love with for a long time already. Finally we had him play at our ACID IST FERTIG night at Suicide Circus Berlin on oct 25th, 2013! And here is the recording of his massive set. Enjoy!

D’Marc Cantu started working on what would later be known as JakBeat in late 2000 after being introduced to Ghostly alum JTC. In keeping with the raw sounds that he's known for D’Marc uses analog gear, meticulously gathered samples and crafty production work to further define JakBeat, a sound that encompasses the emotion and simplicity of early electronica but does not limit itself to just one genre.
In 2005 D’Marc and JTC created 2amfm, taking cues from house, techno, acid, electro and hip-hop, to produce such tracks as Sweatbox and Desolate Cities. D’Marc later teamed up the Traxx and JTC to create X2 a super group of JakBeat aficionados, releasing Time Elevation Rhythm and House not House. As a solo artist he has released a number of singles and EPs such as 2009's Another Number on Crème and 2011's Set Free, hailed as a modern classic, on MOS. 2011 also saw the release of his first album, Fallen, on Crème Organization and just months later MOS would release his second album A New World. Most recently he has taken on remix duties, providing a JakBeat twist to tracks by Alis, G String, Samaan and Ricardo Tobar all in 2013 alone.
His most current project, Some Fantasies are Good, was accompanied by a DVS1 remix and released on the new Montreal based label Forbidden Planet in mid 2013. With no signs of slowing down he looks to continue to push his unique sound, look for him to release works on Nation, Ansatz, Shaddock, Sequencias and Echovolt in the coming year.

KILLEKILL PODCAST #15: WAWASHI DEEJAY (HARD TON) - STOP IMPERIALIST POP


Soon coming on Killekill House Trax will be the outstanding 12" "Rise up" By HARD TON. Not our average cup of tea, but we fckng love it! To give you a first smell of what they are about, their DJ WAWASHI produced this podcast for us, which displays their widespread musical taste and their unique approach to pop in a non-mainstream way. Enjoy!
And instead of boring you to death with just another info text, we copy these words I-D Magazine about HARD TON:
HARD TON are the italian duo with the larger than life disco sound and a surprising love of metal. Fused together in 2008 from the musical loins of DJ Wawashi and heavy metal singer Max. Sylvester-styled falsettos conjure up memories of smoky dancefloors during the heady days of HI-NRG, which combined with a contemporary sound of accelerated beats and screaming acid basslines, shows a nod to the past can result in a slap across the face for the present. Using analogue and vintage gear, from the 303, 606, 707, Oberheim DMX, Korg Monopoly, MS20, Prophet V5, the music is as organic as synthetic music can be, their equipment living and dying by its own unpredictable rules.

KILLEKILL PODCAST #14: EOMAC by KILLEKILL



Eomac400With this podcast we introduce Dubliner Ian McDonnell alias EOMAC to you, who also delivers our upcoming record KILLEKILL 012 which will be released in early April, 2013.
Ian is one half of LAKKER, who also released on Killekill (as well as on blueprint and many other labels), but also with his solo productions he has proven himself as one producer to watch. His sound design is extreme and unique. He creates dense atmospheres and fills them with subtle melodic elements, pushes them forward with heavy basslines and markable, definitely unconventional drum programming.
With club play by no less than Aphex Twin amongst others, EOMAC is a name that is on the verge of exploding onto the scene.
SPOOCK, his release for our label displays the wide range of styles EOMAC can combine, and so does this dj mix. Tune in and enjoy!
