And the good news are that the label plans on release a new EP that has been entitled \’Peacock\’, produced together between Chilean Artist Alejandro Paz and Berlin based duo Local Suicide, a new wave adventure meets the 21st century dance floor, a ride thru the night on a wave of dark synths and clattering beats.¬†

Nein has called on its finest artists to remix the track for further adventures in sound. First up Nein boss Tronik Youth takes the track in a post punk breakbeat version whist Australian based Stockholm Syndrome go for the slow and chugging approach and finally Russian techno producer Gegen Mann goes for a analogue vibe with hissing synths and pulsating lo-fi beats.

\’Peacock\’ will be out digitally and exclusively on Beatport on July 3rd and everywhere else on July 17th.

This release definitely represents where the new wave sound is going, i mean, the future of electronic, mixed with more than just conventional styles. It also comes out with a very attractive Cover Artwork by Pablo Ferrukt.

They say Berlin is the place where everyone eventually meets sooner or later, one thing we are sure, is that Berlin will get to you if your talent pointed that way and responded to the call. 

That is the case here, as we dedicate this post to talk about the announcement of the upcoming double single ‚ÄúDominator / Crocodile‚ÄĚ by Kalipo & Local Suicide. This EP will be released on February 5th, 2020 via Hold Your Ground records, and features remixes by Theus Mago a.k.a. Bufi from Mexico City and Radial Gaze from Saint Petersburg. (Which place they chose to made this magic possible, guess what? Berlin!)

To describe the release, here are this words that perfectly fits into what we listen to in this new tracks and remixes: \”Track one is ‚ÄúDominator‚ÄĚ by Kalipo & Local Suicide, is an electro anthem filled with physicality and furor, and the exact feeling of determinedness and power. Vamparela‚Äôs vocals are similar to that voice inside your gut that you can‚Äôt get enough of, while the driven baseline and 80s inspired analog synths will occupy your mind and centre your thoughts. ‚ÄúCrocodile‚ÄĚ, the second track of the release, is the other side of the coin – not any less definite, however more haunted and introspective¬†in contrast. It isn‚Äôt always easy, but let‚Äôs take authority and dance it out before life consumes us!\”

The mixes are on top, personally we loved the Bufi remix of the track \”Dominator\”, the Mexican producer added to the track that spicy and deep disco sound that is hitting the Mexican and Berlin scene hard nowadays, giving more expectation to the vocals and also to the background sound with minimalistic noises that fits perfectly with the track atmosphere. We gotta admit that we love it, its slow and very deep, just as this \”dominator\” track.¬†

Read below for full details and listen to Kalipo & Local Suicide – Dominator Ep (Snippets) already uploaded to Soundcloud and let\’s find out what more there is to be expected from this producer trio!¬†¬†

Overview. You run, your heart beats fast. You are breathing heavy, but steady. The surge of adrenaline makes you feel like you could do this forever. Awake, alert, excited or maybe a little scared of what’s going to happen. You can feel sweat on the small of you back and goosebumps on your forearms. It’s finally happening and it’s happening under your terms. You got it. 
‚ÄúDominator‚ÄĚ by Kalipo & Local Suicide is an electro anthem full of physicality and furor, of determinedness and power. The female vocals are like the voice inside your gut that you should listen to a little more often, while the driven bassline and 80s inspired analog synths will occupy your mind and focus your thoughts. ‚ÄúCrocodile‚ÄĚ, the second track of the release, is the other side of the coin – not any less definite, however more haunted and introspected in contrast. It isn‚Äôt always easy, but let‚Äôs take control and dance it out before life eats us up!
The digital double single ‚ÄúDominator / Crocodile‚ÄĚ is released on 5th February via Hold Your Ground, incl. Remixes by Theus Mago a.k.a. Bufi from Mexico City and Radial Gaze from Saint Petersburg. In Berlin, sooner or later everyone meets. Let‚Äôs find out what more there is to be expected from this producer trio!

The mood now is without doubt totally for the electronic and disco style, deep and indie as well. The thing is that Celestial Ghent-based label Eskimo Recordings has summoned an ethereal collaboration between Franz Matthews and Local Suicide with the release of \’Meditation / Tutan Jamon\’. The other-worldly recording finds the Berlin artists combining forces for two exciting cosmic disco excursions into the desert oasis. The release feels right at home on Eskimo Recordings, as the darker counterpart to the label‚Äôs recent nu-disco releases from the likes of Satin Jackets and Simon Says.¬†

Listen to Franz Matthews & Local Suicide – Meditation / Tutan Jamon EP (Eskimo) via Soundcloud:

 

Overview. Having previously featured on Eskimo Recordings‚Äė 2018 compilation ‚ÄöThe Purple Collection‚Äô as one half of Languages, Franz Matthews returns to the label alongside fellow Berliners Local Suicide with the ‚ÄöMeditation / Tutan Jamon‚Äė, 2 tracks of heady disco that join the dots between the German capital and the sun soaked souks of North Africa.
Despite living on the same street for 4 years Franz Matthews and Brax Moody and Vamparela from Local Suicide only met recently through their common friend Sam Berdah (Days of Being Wild, Club Bizarre). Making up for lost time, the trio soon found themselves bonding in the studio, digging into their love of both the esoteric and travelling, and together channelled those passions into 2 spiritually infused numbers.
Meditation‚Äė was the first result of this inspired partnership, appropriately recorded at the same time that Matthews was also recording music for a meditation app, and features a freeform stream of consciousness from Vamparela over a suitably hypnotic backing of wistful guitars and breezy rhythms. ‚ÄöTutan Jamon‚Äô meanwhile shares its DNA with recent Eskimo releases by the likes of Simple Symmetry and SHMLSS, the track built around a couple of very Egyptian influenced riffs and comes in two distinct versions.
Between his production studio MOWD, his duo Languages, and his solo electronic project, Franz Matthews keeps himself busy. Making Berlin his hometown for the past 5 years, the Franco-German producer and DJ has always kept one hand in the Indie Dance world, while the other wanders in more Psychedelic Pop realms, a winning combination that‚Äės seen him release music on imprints such as Eskimo Recordings, Days of Being Wild, Rockets & Ponies.
Local Suicide, aka DJs and producers Brax Moody and Vamparela, meanwhile have made a name for themselves putting on some of the most infamous underground parties Berlin has to offer, running their acclaimed blog and still finding time to make waves with their productions, a wild fusion of new wave, acid, slow techno and post-disco that has seen them work with the likes of Rodion, Mijo and Curses in recent years

Hey audience, let get into a good story, as the rising ‚Äėtechnodisco‚Äô duo Local Suicide and esoteric artist Nicki Fehr have teamed up for the release of the unearthly Leopard Gum EP on Lumi√®re Noire.¬†

With its swerving bass slithering over a slow tempo, Leopard Gum EP is the perfect slow burner, a slice of comatose disco that will find its way to the darkest corners of nightlife ‚Äď and haunt its DJ sets. With Leopard Gum‚Äôs opaque and impenetrable atmosphere, Local Suicide have released one of their strongest efforts to date.
(Nicki Fehr)

Overview. This is the second release of 2019 for the intimate French label curated by influential Parisian DJ and producer Chloé; coming quickly on the back of Bajram Bili’ scerebral Reshaped Distortion EP and Chloé’s own Endless Revisions Live, and following on from last year’s From Above Vol. 1 compilation, which featured an eclectic roster of talent including Drvg Cvltvre, Lauer and Markus Gibb, to name but a few.

Taking the reigns for the label’s latest release, Berlin-based duo Local Suicide maintain the name they’ve made for themselves by fusing elements of new wave, disco, and techno with all types of freaky synth-based musical explorations. 2019 has already seen the prolific duo release a slew of collaborative records Рincluding a cold wave-tinged EP with Curses on Tusk Wax, the cosmic disco desert excursion Meditation / Tutan Jamon with Franz Matthews on Eskimo Recordings, and the deep space club hit Komm Ins Loch with Theus Mago on Duro.


For the Leopard Gum EP, Local Suicide have teamed up with Berlin-based artist and musician Nicki Fehr. Self-described as a ‚Äėsinging nomad‚Äô, the US/German raised artist has previously composed for theatrical productions and contemporary dance performances and performed in musical projects such as ooi, Lea Porcelain, and Jungst√∂tter. Recently Nicki has focused his musical energy towards his own solo project, infusing his compositions with his passion for moving image, poetry, and mixed-media environments – as pronounced through the sonic vibrations that make up the Leopard Gum EP.

Title track ‚ÄėLeopard Gum‚Äô is a dreamlike slice of restrained slo-mo synth funk, driven by a slow and steady beat, gentle clav hits, and a groovy bassline. Dreamy distorted moans fill out the mix, leaving just enough space for Fehr‚Äôs surreal vocal line to crystallize the track‚Äôs dark and subdued aura. Next up, cosmic collaborators Ivan Smagghe and Rupert Cross, aka Smagghe & Cross,serve up two remixes (one vocal, one instrumental) of the title track. Maintaining the original‚Äôs transcendental approach, the duo slowly layer a wide range of discordant sequences on top of each other. Despite easing tension midway through with a massive bassline, the building pressure is never fully released – as cascading arpeggios instead build to a dramatic crescendo that eventually dissolves into the ether.
For the original mix of ‚ÄėAlready There‚Äô, Local Suicide and Nicki Fehr have produced a nihilistic neon-tinged 80s cold wave cut, full of protruding percussion, sleazy synths and somber vocals that ponder plummeting endlessly into the abyss. Prolific Lauer then picks up the pace with his banging remix of ‚ÄėAlready There‚Äô, infusing the original‚Äôs restrained approach with a crisp-pulsing beat, bouncing bassline and histrionic synth stabs, with some bonus digi slap bass thrown in for maximum retro appeal. Exciting Tel Aviv producer Niv Ast closes out the EP with his enchanting remix of ‚ÄėAlready There‚Äô. For his rendition, Niv Ast places the original‚Äôs hazy vocals front and center, seamlessly blending organic textures with a dialed-up bassline and dissonant synth sequences that maintain the EP\’s indistinguishable and exotic essence.
Leopard Gum EP will be released May 31st through Lumière Noire.
