Kalipo always produces his tracks with a live set and a dancefloor in mind, therefore this time we wanted to show you the new tunes in a live set up before actually releasing them… Check out: Elevation by ZERO NYC presents: Kalipo in Summer 2017. A little more relaxed than it would be in the club, Kalipo showcases six new and unreleased tracks among this studio live set.
Kalipos contribution for the Stiff Little Spinners Vol. 8 is a track about passion. Gernkraftwerk (“joy generating plant”) means: a fisher catching their biggest catch, a soccer player scoring. A runner with their heart beating heavy in their chest. Or a boxer, loosing herself in a match… With the appropriate volume this tune can lead to loss of gravity.
Berlin based Trummerschlunk is releasing his debut EP of experimental slow tech “Soupe Populaire” via Audiolith Records on 24 May 2017. 4 tracks, ranging between 103 and 114 bpm, capture bits and patterns of synthesized analogue sound, swallow them up, and release pieces of technoid music that are unsettling and magnificently mesmerizing at the same time.
It’s as if modular synths are having a jam session at night when no one is looking, mixing in macro recordings produced by little robot dolls. As if you step into a mad scientist’s lab where everything fizzles, pops, and beeps, but somehow all of a sudden the elements come together in the rhythms and beautifully haunted melodies of a modern day Fantasia musical. Trummerschlunk’s jazz-session-of-the-machines-style is linked to his method: He plays fully improvised live-sets, then develops song ideas from the recordings afterwards. Consequently, his tracks are characterized by improvisation, handcrafted synths, and modularized sounds.
Based on a poem by Joseph Pearson, “Noah” brings in the voice of David Minor, enchanted and wonderfully lost, as if emanating from half-lit rooms behind doors left ajar. “After the Fall” is the most abstract piece on the EP with Saam Schlamminger’s signature percussions and string instruments that seem to circle one another – measuring space, punctuating time. The title track leans into minimal, interlaced with mechanical echoes and industrial noisiness. The final track is “Portico” feat. Lucia Cadotsch. Trummerschlunk has woven her voice into a nervous dreamscape, which impressed the jazz singer so much that she invited him to play at the release party of her “Speak Low” Renditions at Berghainkantine on 26 May 17. Not to be missed!
The EP will also be released on limited coloured vinyl.

A handful of cables, laptops and a few dusty machines are all it takes to make music. On Stiff Little Spinners Vol. 8 this is proven once again with seven exclusive tracks by Thomas Atzmann, Rampue, Kalipo, Krink, Paradise Hippies, Gimmix and Monopohl. The eighth edition of the Stiff Little Spinners compilation is ready for the next demolition party with a mix of modern deep house, slow jams & dreamy techno future classics.
01 Thomas Atzmann – Skagerrak
After a longer release break, Thomas Atzmann delivers the first sure shot of this record. Skaggerrak convinces from the beginning with spheric ambience and tom-tom grooves, dissolving in a wash of big synth emotions.
02 Rampue – Der König und der Vogel
King Rampue dishes out an A+ Slow Jam. Minimalistic in the beginning, this track leads you directly via screwed vocals to a cosmic breakdown of intoxicating emotions. All of it with a beautifully relaxed bpm.
03 Kalipo – Gernkraftwerk
The manifold producer is on the ticket as per ususal – this time with a detroit-y neo trance attack. With the appropriate volume this tune can lead to loss of gravity.
04 Krink – Dazed
This track is tuning feedback into filters and synth stabs in your face as if there was no tomorrow. Some tunes will always instill hope that’s it’s possible to dance forever and never go home.
05 Paradise Hippies – Prosecco Mate
The last hippies of Hamburg bring proof that two rad dudes together make an extremely rad pair. Known in every dive bar around town, Joney and Digital Norman decided to become a super group to blow everyone’s minds away with their very own R’n’B disco cut.
06 Gimmix – Karlie
Rounding the whole thing off is Gimmix with a modern deep house classic. All the right ingredients from arpeggio synth via deep chords to trippy vocal fragments. What more could you want.
07 Monopohl – Patellaluxation
Bremen-based Monopohl is the rookie on this record. After a couple of EPs he docked on to the mother ship Audiolith to give this dreamy radiator to the world. Synth lines epicly build up to an absolute peak time monster, ready to pick up everyone who wants to fly at a higher game.
Berlin, Friday night, far below 0 degrees. Down by the river, inside Watergate, Kalipo plays his first hometown-show of 2017, making everyone forget their winter worries for an entrancing hour. His goosebump-inducing deep-house live-set is magnetizing as always, interlaced with new release, unpublished tracks and edits of songs that will take you back to your most happiest and carefree times.
The techno machinist is showcasing his production skills, his knack for balancing heartfelt melodies with droney bass & his joie de vivre. Evidently, Kalipo is ready and looking forward to mesmerize with his set-up in 2017.
Hey Australia! Rampue enjoyed his first stay at your strange & beautiful country so much that he’s gonna be back very soon! Plus he’s gonna stop by New Zealand also… Exciting times!

Many people all over the world have been asking for months and months. They have been expecting it longingly: an updated live-set by Rampue! Even though he is playing his one-of-a-kind slower and faster sounds all over the globe nearly every weekend, recordings of his live-sets are rarer than diamonds.
Mid September he closed the new but already legendary party series WooMooN in Ibiza. The moon was a luminous sphere in the sky, matching the theme of the night perfectly: full moon.
Rampue played an ineffable 3 hour (!) live-set, accompanied by numerous visual surprises. Unforgettable for everyone who took part. Rightly so, WooMooN won the Ibiza Electronic Music Award for the “Best Ibiza Night” shortly after.
Dyson is in all of us. The only question is, how much you let him decide. Kalipo a.k.a. Jakob Häglsperger shouldn’t need any further introduction. As part of “Frittenbude” he’s a star, as Kalipo he’s a down-to-earth producer and a passionate techno machinist. It’s only natural that he would name this track after his new vacuum cleaner.
„Dyson“ was released as part of the Stiff Little Spinners Vol. 7 on 16th June 2016.
