This amazingly gorgeous collector's item: TUXEDOMOON's 10 LPs DELUXE VINYL BOX



The vinyl reissue of Minimal Compact's debut mini-album (1981) comes out on Nov 18. It's been remastered from the original tapes, pressed on 180 gr vinyl, and contains a download code.

Fronted by vocalist Samy Birnbach (aka DJ Morpheus, freestyle DJ extraordinaire and compiler of the Freezone series), Minimal Compact were one of the most inspirational bands of the '80s. They blended funky rock rhythms and incisive guitars with flavours from their native Middle East. The band were active from 1981 to 1988, and released 6 studio albums and a live album. They had a large and fanatic following all across Europe and the USA, where some of their tracks became underground club favourites.

The band's line-up consisted of Samy Birnbach (vocals), Rami Fortis (vocals, guitar), Max Franken (drums), Berry Sakharof (guitar, vocals, keyboards) and Malka Spigel (bass, vocals).

KONONO N°1 & BATIDA say "Bom Dia"!

Les Inrockuptibles premiere the new video by Konono n°1 & Batida, and are dubbing them "Purveyors of Joy"....

The joyful music video illustrating this track from the new Konono n°1 album was shot by Catarina Limão (who is a.o. the VJ in the collective around Batida), during rehearsals for the common live show by the Congolese band and the Angolan-Portuguese electronic musician.

In the lyrics of the song, which mix Kikongo, Portuguese and French, Konono n°1 leader Augustin Mawangu imagines that he fortuitously meets some of his partners (his manager, the boss of his label…) in the streets of Brazil or Australia, reconverted into fish or banana vendors, following the collapse of the music industry… Premonitory vision, warning or plain fun? Future will tell…  

Konono N°1 are on tour in Europe NOW!

The first video for FAUNA TWIN's upcoming THE HYDRA EP

Fauna Twin — the latest, exciting addition to the Crammed roster— are Parisian singer-songwriter Claire Jacquemard & North Wales’ Owain Ginsberg (leader of “Hippies Vs Ghosts” and “We Are Animal”). They’ve just put the finishing touch to their debut EP, the epic “The HYDRA EP”, which will be out in October with a string of shows around Europe. Fauna Twin’s debut album is scheduled for release in 2017.

Towards the end of last year, the band have circulated a couple of unfinished tracks which have elicited great reactions from the BBC6 and several online media across the UK, US and Canada, all obviously intoxicated by Fauna Twin’s melodies, atmospheres and dramatic percussions, and by the beauty of Claire’s voice.

This is how Fauna Twin describe their own music: “our influences are a massive tornado of different styles, from Queen to King Crimson, crossing by PJ Harvey, Fiona Apple via R. Stevie Moore to Radiohead. This leads us to a chameleon church with no god, where we commit everyday. Fauna Twin’s music turns into a kind of hybrid shoegazish-drama-pop with a special appeal for textures, structures and constructed rhythm sections.”


New music by AQUASERGE, ACID ARAB, FAUNA TWIN, LE TON MITÉ and singles from the upcoming, 2017 albums by YASMINE HAMDAN and JUANA MOLINA: This is what will be awaiting you in the Fall! Meanwhile, here is Aquaserge's intriguing new video, 'Les Zouzes'

New video by Flavien Berger x Véronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul

"Je pleure tout le temps"

Je pleure tout le temps (Contrelarme Version) was arranged and performed by French electropop wonder kid Flavien Berger for Véronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul's 16 Visions of Ex-Futur, an album of covers & reworks which comes out on October 14.

The majestic video was written & directed by Robin Lachenal (who has worked on Flavien Berger's remarkable previous 13 videos…), and was jointly produced by the artists' respective labels, Crammed Discs and Pan European Recording, along with video company Kidam.

Noteworthy trivia (as they say on movie sites) #1: the aerial shots were filmed from a drone flying among the high-rise buildings in La Défense area near Paris, which is a first. #2: the main character is played by Michel Dejeneffe, a puppeteer and ventriloquist who had his own, very popular TV shows in France & Belgium back in the 80s ("Tatayet").


New album out in Europe now!
For this new album, the legendary Congolese band has joined forces with acclaimed Angolan/Portuguese artist Batida aka Pedro Coquenão. Along with producer Vincent Kenis, they convened in Batida's garage-cum-studio in Lisbon with a series of collaborators and friends of Batida's, reflecting the city's vibrant, cosmopolitan music life: guitarist Papa Juju (the leader of Lisbon's foremost Afro-fusion band Terrakota), vocalist Selma Uamusse (one of the best young African singers currently residing in Portugal) and MC AF Diaphra, a distinguished slam poet and an artist/producer in his own right.

The album is released on CD & double LP deluxe & digital.

The USA release: April 29th.

The band will be touring in Europe in May and July, and will come back again in October 2016.

May tour dates are here

Amatorski release

Amatorski release "Hear Me"

A new video and single incl. Julia Holter remix

With their moving, elegant and melancholic pop songs set in captivating, beautifully-crafted soundscapes, their two albums to date (tbc and from clay to figures) have gained them a strong international following, which has significantly increased with the airing of the BBC/STARZ drama series The Missing, for which the band wrote the theme music.

The single contains two versions of Hear Me, the original as well as a beautiful, eerie remix by Julia Holter. The versatile Californian songstress has done a handful of remixes in the past, this one seems to be the first since the recent release of her acclaimed album Have You In My Wilderness

Hear Me is coming out as a limited-edition 7" vinyl and on digital.

A second 7” will be released for Record Store Day, in Belgium and The Netherlands only. It's a split record, containing Walking With A Passer-by #1, a beautiful spoken-word-and-electronica piece crafted by Amatorski front person Inne Eysermans and renowned Flemish novelist Saskia de Coster. The B-side is a remix of Hear Me by electronic music producer Hiele.

Inne Eysermans and Saskia de Coster will be performing showcases on Record Store Day at Vynilla (Ghent) and Coffee & Vinyl (Antwerp).
