“I wrote these lyrics while sitting on the couch/bed at the Keinemusik studio in Berlin…” On her blog Parksiderecords Nomi is telling us how her ideas for the most recent KM031 came about and what the working process with Rampa and &ME was like. Also she gives us the full lyrics. Click here.
Almost exactly three years after NR&, a project uniting &ME’s and Rampa’s production with the voice of New York Disco-House-siren Nomi, dropped their debut EP, we finally can announce a new chapter in this ongoing transatlantic menage. This very “Spoken For” EP is comprised of two new tracks, that again fuse songwriting with floor-demands and showcase the same crackling and pulse quickening passion that instantly has become NR&’s trademark. So here’s the evidence – a long distance relationship is not necessarily doomed to get boring after a while.
“Taste Like” on A might be conceived as the club-affair of those two new joints. A tune indulging in self-control, extending the pre- eruptive moment of excitement to track length. There is Nomi’s unmistakeable sexed up oration, flanked by an affirmative thunderstorm of claps, then a bass heavy bridge, overflowing into a noise brushed finale. Altogether a tasty flavour carrier for an effective floor heating.
“Spoken For” is not only the title track, but also the hymn coming out of the flipside ambush. There is no kick necessary to underpin what Nomi’s charismatic croon is laying down. Therefore a wise choice to let the arrangement of interspersed field recordings, percussive details and piano- and synth-decoration exercise in unobtrusiveness. Safe to say, this tune will refine many future peaktimes anyway.

Release: February 12th, 2016
Following in straight line with their first official collaboration ‘Burn’ last September on Gruuv, NGHT DRPS and David Mayer teamed up again to take the next step on Steve Bug’s much lauded label Audiomatique. The EP subsequently named ‘Follow’ comes with two tracks, both of which emerged from another round of steaming modular jams and were prepped to maintain the rough appeal of their origin.

We are starting the week with this special, revamped and slowed down version of Bold featuring Sooma from the flipside of David Mayer’s Jaded EP (KM030). Available only in our KM Shop.
A new David Mayer EP was added to the Keinemusik release roster today, and there’s no other way around it than declaring: with this “Jaded EP”, David Mayer is back with a bang!
With the eponymously entitled a-side, he is cutting to the chase as hardly ever before. The mission is obvious: take no prisoners on the floor. The ingredients he is blending in his machines for that matter, should push every vital rate up into the red zone immediately. A groovy bassline enclosed by a rustling and analogue vibe that leads into a single note hook with immediate signal effect. Mayer weren’t Mayer though, if he wouldn’t let his knack for details show within the middle part. But as a whole, this tune is characterized by an almighty peaktime bounce.
Bold on the other side is rather going for some soothing sex-thing. Crinkling shakers, harmonic caress and percussive teasing are heating up an atmosphere in which Sooma’s croon is loosing any ambiguity. What is she saying there? “Touch me and do it right.” You might address this to the quality of the entire track itself. After going through Mayers hands, this thing will unerringly trigger every pleasure spot.
David’s next EP artwork was agreed to become nicely purple (with a little pink), but also reduced in the use of colours at the same time, and, as always, some kind of rough and a bit dark. Besides that I got pictures of the moon sent as inspiration, which I liked. The cover is now finished and here you see some steps on the way there.
