“You Are Safe” – a title illustrating the safe haven, Keinemusik has built itself over the last eight years. This self determined action space of the DJ/producers Rampa, &ME and Adam Port; Reznik who’s favouring the DJ booth to the studio and painter/visual artist Monja Gentschow. At the same time it makes an offer to every listener: put your headphones on, boogie around your living room, let go, forget everything around you. When this is on – you are safe.
After the label’s backcatalogue has been loaded with customary EP-formats since its inception, the desire to put out an album has been ascending recently. Not an individual artist album of one of the label’s producing forces &ME, Rampa or Adam Port, but a joint venture. Somehow like a logical continuation of Keinemusik’s annual Workparty-releases. Just bigger, with even more combined effort and opportunity to fathom the potential of a wider release-space. Mainly, that is the breathing room to zoom out a bit of the dancefloor-normative and the chance to highlight stylistic and sonic side scenes, smaller releases are basically too small for.
Make no mistake: the tonal nucleus of this record can be conceived as tracks elaborating what Keinemusik stands for and tracks that notably will set the tone for what’s happening on dancefloors world wide over the next months. Tracks like “Civilist”, that’s grooving through a muggy atmosphere, releasing heat in extensive drum solos. “Muyè” that’s playing in minor key the major claviature of emotions or “MBH” that, despite of its tripping tribal-beat, monk-like chants and eccentric use of distorted guitar sounds, may easily be implemented in any peaktime-set. But next to those you’ll find plenty of unexpected style-exercises. A state of the art R’n’B-reverie like “Up And Down” feat. Chiara Noriki, a singer from Berlin, based in London, you’ll definitely hear more from in the future. The Wave-induced retro-sound of “Lover” feat. Jennifer Touch – an exceptional artist, Adam Port has collaborated with on several tracks before. “Guilt Trip” – an emotional climax that’s swinging off the custom 4/4 time corset. A geeky meditative jam like “Operator” or the irresistible Stevie B. homage “Bumper” feat. Nomi Ruiz, who has been the voice for Keinemusik’s own NR& project and is well known for her work with Jessica 6 and as former member of Hercules And Love Affair.
With that said, “You Are Safe” combines club pragmatics with homelistening pleasure like no other Keinemusik release before and raises the sound signature and the stylistic expression of the collective to the next level.
