Mono Junk interviewed for Jaeger Oslo

Monojunk-640x420

“Kimmo has been making music as Mono Junk since the ninety nineties. In 1990 he released his first record, and two years later he established Dum records with the same solitary attitude to making music. He’s been an enduring figure, not only in Finland, but everywhere in the furtive margins of Techno and Electro for the past thirty years and has continually staked his claim throughout his career.”

RA review about MUGAKO festival last week with Morphology

26730776_1991653684420871_144023151304774993_n

Real passion is if you play twice !

“The Finnish electro duo Morphology, who stayed so long at the festival they ended up playing again, replacing Mick Harris on Saturday, were raucous by comparison, lashing out dynamic electro while headbanging like young rockers.” RA

08.05.2018 Juno recommends Reade Truths new EP “Love’s Secret Domain”

Juno Records recommends:
“Often overlooked or under-cited, NYC’s Reade Truth is as much a part of the vintage house and techno scene as other, more referenced, artists like Pal Joey or Adam X. In fact, even before his first EPs began to appear in the early 90s, this guy was blasting out tunes in raves all throughout the late 80s, and he clearly knows rave culture like few others.

Through labels like Sonic Groove he was able to build a name for himself, and in more recent years he’s appeared for others like Nsyde · music – a Juno favourite!

He’s now up on San Fran’s Warm Fiction, following up on Lerosa’s fine opener from last year, and “LSD” opens the festivities with a psychedelic shower of percussion and warm, luscious bass. “Unrave The Fragments” is a more minimal-minded techno tool, while “Love Is…” goes all industrial and dubby, leaving “In The Blood” to glitch its way across the groove. Big up, Truth!”

Thanks for the luv!

Richard Zepezauer at the Sun Ra Tribute Sessions w/ Mike Huckaby, Jimi Tenor

SUN RA_Flyer5white

In 2011 Mike Huckaby & Richard Zepezauer started the legendary first Sun Ra Sessions to give a regular platform to spiritual and free form music as according to Sun Ra’s universal approach.
This night features a non formulistic shape of music, there are no borders to pass, there is no you or me. This night is dedicated to music which captures the energy of the moment, a sonic message from outta space.

So far a small carefully chosen number of artists took part on this night to pay tribute to the musical genius and philosophy of Sun Ra and sessions took place all over the world from New York to Paris.

This time we are very happy to travel these spaceways with the fine companionship of Finland´s music legend that is Jimi Tenor.

03.12. Mono Junk Live at Berghain / Panorama Bar

“Der Finne Kim Rapatti war Anfang der 90er Jahre mit seinen Platten als Mono Junk und Melody Boy 2000 einer der wegweisenden Produzenten eisigen Minimal Technos. Seine Tracks wie „Monotonous Fantastique“ oder das kürzlich wiederveröffentlichte „Beyond The Darkness“ waren stilbildend für nachkommende Generationen, dem Lauf der Zeit haben die Releases erstaunlich gut standgehalten. Dass sich Rapatti nicht auf einstige Pioniertaten ausgeruht, sondern in den vergangen Jahren so unberechenbare wie befreiende Techno-Jams auf Rat Life, Skudge und seinem eigenen Label DUM Records veröffentlicht hat, spricht für ihn. Heute Nacht live im Berghain zusammen mit einem Top-Techno-DJ-Programm, das mit u.a. Daniel Avery, Matrixxman, Radio Slave und den Zenker Brothers keine Wünsche offen lassen dürfte. In der Panorama Bar spielen u.a. das britische Deephouse-Duo Giles Smith und James Priestly alias secretsundaze, die vor 15 Jahren mit ihrer gleichnamigen Londoner Sonntagmittagsveranstaltung einen neuen Standard in Sachen Tagsüber-Clubbing setzen konnte.”  http://berghain.de

Kevin Reynolds new 12″ on Yoruba Records

Juno´s review for Kevin Reynolds new 12″ on Yoruba Records:

“Detroit’s Kevin Reynolds made a name for himself through Berlin’s Nsyde imprint with the all-conquering Liasions 12″ from 2011 which still sounds 100% fresh five years on! We are glad to see Reynolds back on wax and this 12” for Osunlade’s Yoruba Records comes as a mooted taster for his debut LP! Four tracks deep, Fembehyaget is just what we needed for this late-summer heat wave. “Dodging The Clip” is a bouncy, driving house chugger with a deep, dubby and almost Flo Po feel, but the title track “Fembehyaget” is much more in line with Osunlade’s usual bag of Afro-tribal tricks. On the B-side, “Travelled” sees a mid-tempo 4/4 beat engulfed by a sea of gorgeous synth sequencing, while “Vibe Samba” goes deep, minimal and explorative thanks to a glitchy drum sequence and sporadic layers of bass swarming the place. Recommended.” juno.co.uk
