Moniker Eggplant

eggplant_3_6_2_7_1_farbton2-012Moniker Eggplant is an open-minded electronic label based in Berlin. The concept behind the label is they “release sound carriers (vinyl, CD, data) always conducted by a proper eggplant-recipe”. Sounds a bit nuts, yeah but we are loving it!
So far there have been four main; three handmade CDrs in our unique design (handmade, hand stamped carton-cd-box) and one vinyl (7” split-release with Alphacute records). All with that real DIY ethos that shows real love has gone into the project and the label.
The main focus of the label is to bring together artists from all over the globe who create different, unique forms of electronic music, compile their music and release them as part of their “Mashed Eggplant” series.
So far there has been “Mashed Eggplant Vol.1” featuring the likes of Infinite Livez, Dingy Dysu, Desmond Denker and more. Along with, yep you’ve guessed it, “Mashed Eggplant Vol.2” featuring artists such as Bit-Turner, PorkFour, Graph amongst others.
They all make for a really interesting, diverse, at times challenge, but overall entertaining listen. It is well worth giving Moniker Eggplants back catalogue a listen and keeping an eye on where they will go next!

Soundsci – Change video

Just a quick post to say, check out the fresh new video from Soundsci for their track “Change”. Audessey, Oxygen, U George, Jonny Cuba & Ollie Teeba are at it again and coming correct.

The Simonsound – The Beam

simonsoundThe Simonsound sound release a brand new single entitiled, “The Beam”, on super tastey transparent 10″ vinyl. The single is a “radiophonic ride aboard the imaginary ‘SS Mk I Monorail’, taking in five out of this world destinations along the way. Board the Monorail and be whisked to Outer Space World, Underwater World, Inner Space, Robot World and The Land of Myths and Beasts.” You can’t argue with that, can you.
Musically, The Beam follows the work of early classic electronic producers such as Raymond Scott, Tristram Cary and Tom Dissevelt. Mixing up Buchla, Moog and EMS synthesisers, with tape manipulated percussion and acoustic sources, this is the more experiemental side of The Simonsound.
The b-side, “In The Shadow of Skylon”, is “an oscillating ode to a long lost London landmark and futuristic structure created for the Festival of Britain in 1951.”
There is a extremely limited version that includes two sided colour map, sew on ‘The Simonsound Transit Authority’ Pilot patch, 1 of a kind 1/4 inch tape loop, mini booklet, Monorail ticket, all housed in a beautiful letter press printed sleeve. But sadly as I write this it has already sold out, sorry. But you can still grab the 10″ which comes with a free map, to outter space I’m guessing. and of course there is the digital version for you modern types.
