Mit seiner Liveperformance im Quartett hat der Produzent und Beatmaker SEPALOT endlich einen Weg gefunden, seine Studioarbeit auch auf der Bühne zu präsentieren.

Auf dem neuen Album “A NEW CYCLE” sind Songs aus mehr als 10 Jahren Schaffenszeit als Solokünstler. Die Liebe zur elektronischen Musik bleibt bestehen und auch der ungeschliffene Druck des HipHop findet sich hier wieder und doch ist alles auf Anfang mit diesem Projekt. SEPALOT als Mastermind macht aus dem Quartett mehr als nur die Summe der Einzelteile. Die eklektischen Beats, der pulsierende Bass, SEPALOTs Begeisterung für atmosphärisches Sounddesign, all das bleibt bestehen und wird ergänzt um das Element des Jazz. Ein einzigartiger Sound der seines Gleichen sucht und mit internationalem Format nach Höherem strebt.

Kiefer by Eric Coleman


 
Im Sommer veröffentlichte Kiefer sein Stones-Throw-Debüt „Happysad“ über die kalifornische Indie-Institution und tourte damit gerade auch durch Deutschland.

Nun erscheint das Video zur ersten Single ‘What A Day’, in dem der Pianist und Beatmaker in Slow-Mo durch seine Hood in LA spaziert.
Immer dabei: Penny, die französische Bulldogge, die auch das Albumcover ziert.
 

 
Vom Stones-Throw-Hausfotografen Eric Coleman in Szene gesetzt, passt das Video perfekt zur sommerlichen Atmosphäre des Tracks. Kiefer und seine Freunde, darunter Labelkollege Mndsgn, begeben sich darin auf eine relaxte Fahrt durch LA. Kiefer selbst erklärt die Sorglosigkeit des Songs so:

‘What a Day’ is the first of three songs that make up the driving music chapter of the album. It’s about driving through LA on a beautiful day with no prior obligations. No work, no responsibilities, pure joy.“

 


 

 


Episode 69 der khaderbai beat diaries:

“I had the fortune to spend my summer vacation in beautiful Denmark. Eventually I’ve had the time to record a Beat Diaries Episode (Number 69). Last night I was browsing through some footage I’ve filmed travelling to and in Denmark – et voilà! Here it is!”

Kiefer by Eric Coleman

Er lernte den Blues lieben, noch bevor er laufen konnte. Am heutigen Freitag veröffentlicht Stones Throws jüngster Neuzugang Kiefer sein Album „Happysad“ über das Liebhaber-Label aus LA.

Zu diesem Anlass kündigt der Jazzpianist und Boombap-Frickler, der bereits mit Kaytranada und Anderson .Paak arbeitete und in der Band von Moses Sumney spielte, auch seine Europatour mit Mndsgn an – Tourdaten siehe unten.

Happysad“ beschreibt er selbst als eine Art Tagebuch, das über das letzte Jahr entstand:

„Ich kämpfe viel mit meinen Emotionen, bin aber eigentlich die meiste Zeit verdammt glücklich. Dieses Album fokussiert sich auf diese beiden Extremzustände: Freude und Traurigkeit – und das ständige Zwischenspiel dieser Pole.“

 
Ohne den Einsatz von Samples, jammt er auf seinen Keyboards über luftigen Bummtschak und erspielte sich mit Live-Jams eine große Community in den sozialen Netzwerken. Auf Instagram teilt er regelmäßig Instrumentals, auf die seine aktive Followerschaft – Beatmaker und Jazzer aus aller Welt – selbst improvisieren können.

„Kiefer might be the best kept secret in jazz and alt-rap”
Bandcamp

 

„a striking entry to this lineage of hip-hop inextricably tethered to jazz”

Seit Jahren veröffentliche ich die einzelnen Episoden der beat diaries des schweizerischen Beatmakers khaderbai und nun sind die schönsten Aufnahmen als Album erschienen:
 

I’ve filmed the very first episode of the beat diaries on a balcony on the Portuguese island Madeira in May 2014. Presenting my beats live was of no particular concern to me until that point, but I was looking for a way to release music spontaneously. I needed something external that would keep me making those beats and videos, so I decided that whenever I would travel somewhere, I would film an episode. The beats needed to be done in a short time window and should at least aim to reproduce my mood, my experiences relating to that moment, thus functioning as a diary. All episodes ought to be recorded and filmed live and in one take.
Making a song on demand, presenting it in a more or less live way, finding a place to film it, carrying a lot of equipment, and working around weather conditions and curious bystanders have been among the challenges that have been presented to me, not to speak of impatient co-travellers. Up until now (January 2018), I’ve recorded more than 50 episodes and I’m thrilled that I was asked to collect some of them for this album. So I did. I’ve re-recorded a selection of episodes, re-producing them again from scratch, included some episodes that never came into existence and complemented them with shouterludes featuring some of the people I was meeting on my travels.
It took me over a year to produce this record and it was a journey making it. Featured are beats that have been originally composed in the last four years and shout outs from fellow beatmakers I had the privilege of meeting during this time. I had so much fun making those videos, crafting those beats, so I sincerely hope you’re enjoying this record.
Nuff said.”
