Time for a new playlist! This time a special one, as we weren’t the ones selecting the music, but our friend Michael A. Muller was kind enough to share his favorites for this time of the year. Michael is based in Austin, Texas and is a photographer who has worked for among others Kinfolk, Cereal and Freunde von Freunden.
His list starts with Memory Loss by The Snow, the new supergroup of Dustin Payseur, Jack Tatum and Andreas Lagerström. Followed by Carnival Ghost by childhood friends John Fredericks and Andy Breihan and their band SACCO. The next song is second single by German lap-pop band The Notwist of their  debut Close to the Glass. Moving from guitar pop to the more electronic sounds of Seattle-based Beat Connection and their Invisible Cities. Next is our favorite track Turn Away of the most recent Beck record Morning Phase. Back to electronics, She Just Like to Fight by Four Tet. After which the lead single of Californian Jazz duo The Mattson 2 and the experimental On Guyot of Wild Nothing’s Empty Estate EP follow. The song by Small Black and featuring Frankie Rose named Real People was inspired by Colton Harris-Moore, a teenager from rural Washington who went on a crime spree. Next up is one of our favorite artists Nils Frahm and his haunting For of the album Juno. More instrumental tunes follow with Mick Turner’s Here’s a Way and Takeshi Nishimoto’s 6/8. The final song is yet another special one: recorded in Nils Frahm’s studio and recently released on the namesake 18-song album, the beautiful Pinô by Norwegian Otto A. Totland. read more…

It has been a while since our last playlist, the After Summer list on Spotify, so we felt it was time to share a new one. Our favourites over the past months. The end of 2013, and the start of 2014.
This one starts in slow moods with our favourite song of Perera Elsewhere, Light Bulb. Than, slower than previous album, but the new Moderat still recalls the moments driving the curved roads of the Cote d’Azure. We starred every track of Rival Dealer, Burial’s new EP, but Hider is definitely our favourite. The album got one of the few 9’s on Pitchfork and we totally agree on that! Then we move towards the crazy cool collaboration between Nicolas Jaar’s and Dave Harrington’s Darkside. We’ve instantly subscribed to Nicolas Jaar’s Other People project, and we think you should do the same. From there we continue with Abstraxion and Chloé, more Nicolas Jaar and Isolee, into the more classical tunes of Dustin O’Halloran – to come back on the electronic side of the spectrum with Tim Hecker and Bruce Hackford.
Another album we where very much looking forward to was More Is Than Isn’t by RJD2. We’re always surprised by the sound, the samples and the fresh and unique mix of cultures that Ramble John “RJ” Krohn puts together. Love it!
The list ends in the somewhat eternal sounds of Come Down To Us by Burial and can easily be put on repeat with Perera Elsewhere taking it over. On repeat that is! read more…

With some amazing new releases of our favourite artists over the past months, it’s time to share our treasures on Spotify with Another After-Summer Playlist. Nicolas Jaar’s highly productive label Clown & Sunset takes a big part of the list with Darkside, David Terranova, Will Epstien and more, but the new album of Trentemøller can’t left unnoticed as well. We hope this electronic influenced playlist will help you to get in some autumn moods and get used to the cold and the dark again. Enjoy after the click! read more…

After our last mix tape, a Pre-Summer Playlist featuring the sounds of James Blake, David August, The Knife, Grasscut and many more, we’ve made a new one with some of our favourite releases over the past months.
A Spotify playlist capturing the mood of the season, holding memories of travels to Tokyo, Basel, Bilbao, Lisbon, Antwerp and Amsterdam. It is starting slowly with Lower Dens and Lulu Rouge but quickly getting more electric with Moderat, Jon Hopkins, Jai Paul and Chrome Sparks. To end in a warm and balmy summer evening with Valentin Stip, Low and Baths. Listen and see the full track list after the click.

After a somber and electronic influenced Another Spring mix tape it’s now time for something different. And with some new and crazy good tunes by James Blake, David August, The Knife, Grasscut amongst others, the first few months of 2013 already brought some iconic music. Starting easy, slow and classical, moving more towards electronic sounds and ending in what we think is the ultimate summer midnight ‘end-of-the-night’ tune by Cold Cave. read more…

Since it’s still cold outside in this parts of the world, and it looks like winter can’t turn its back, our Spring playlist isn’t really feeling like spring. With the new tunes by James Blake, Atoms for Peace, Jim James, Apparat and Dark Star it became an electronic influenced mix tape which feels more as our winter compilation. Let’s all hope for some more sunshine and spring temperatures! Enjoy the mix tape on Spotify, and get the track list after the click. read more…

We’ve put another little mix tape together with our favourites of this winter. A Spotify playlist capturing the mood of the season, a mix somewhere between Amsterdam, Toronto, Bangkok and New York.

See the full track list after the click, and enjoy it on Spotify >

I’ve made another playlist for this spring and early summer. A collection with all my favorite tracks over the past months.
