This Minimal House stunner is a remix of Mari Kvien Brunvoll’s ‘Everywhere You Go’ by Ricardo Villalobos . Mari is a Norwegian Jazz singer who comes from a very musical family. Her performances are inspired by the sound of pop and folk, and while on stage she uses a variety of acoustic as well as electronic instruments. So it’s only fitting that Ricardo put her wonderful voice to some very enchanting electronic beats.
It’s a bit disappointing though that there are only very limited resources with infos about Mari. At least I learned, that there still are people that use MySpace. Astonishing. But when it comes the music itself – it is “nothing less than magic”.
Genre: Experimental / Techno

DJ and producer Rosa Lux (Rosali Batzer) is one of Denmark’s more famous representatives in the electro scene, having even made a name for herself in broader Danish society due to a few appearances on danish TV programs in the last years after her first successful single. Her debut album ‘Monsters’ already came out in 2011 and she continued to be a regular among Copenhagen and Europe’s night clubs.
‘Wilderness’ is a collaboration with artists from Germany, namely Audiolith producer Rampue and electropop duo ‘I’m Not A Band‘. Together they produced a wonderfully relaxing Tech-House track that simply clings to your eardrums. It’s a testament of how well-deserved Rosa’s fame in the Copenhagen club scene really is, even when she’s only providing vocals here. For a proof of her beat-making qualities, listen to the gold-awarded ‘Min Klub Først’ feat. Alberte & Josefine Winding.
Genre: Tech-House / Deep House

Twin sisters that are the stars of the DJ scene in the underground of Tel Aviv. As unlikely as that sounds, the Romano sisters have achieved exactly that and they have long since become too big for Israels relatively small electronic underground community.
Nil and Karin Romano call themselves the ‘Music Junkies’ and they do as they say, they really are junkies of music. They implement a diverse range of influences from their broad taste (their idols consist of Portishead, Brian Eno, Boards of Canada, Miles Davis, Vivaldi, Kraftwerk and DJ Koze, just to name a few) into their DJ performances. Their sets are all loosely based on the idea of becoming a techno mix, while often deviating from that to a great extent, dipping into other related genres.
‘Visions of a Lonely Galaxy’ has become their very first single track to be published on their soundcloud page just about a week ago. It is a snippet taken from their production and it speaks of the same kind of melancholic and sorrowful feeling that is also found in most of their sets. In their interview for Pulse Radio they describe themselves as outsiders, who find it hard to socialize and try to communicate with the outside world through their sets.
Both identify this role as misfits in the scene and society as a whole, along with the simple fact that they are women in an industry controlled by men, as the two main reasons for having a hard time making a name for themselves in the wider electronic music scene.
But they already made it quite far and there is no sign of stopping here. Or as they say themselves in a twinge of optimism: ‘Eventually true talent wins’. And there can be no doubt about the fact that these two twin sisters are incredibly talented, indeed.

Today is going to be all about Germany and Thomas Muller. Not just on the pitch against Argentina, but also at Electric Women featuring Ellen Allien. Ellen has been a powerhouse in the German techno scene for quite some time. She has been working as a DJ in Berlin since 1991, released some very successful albums since then, founded her very own label BPitch Control and started a fashion line under her own name.
This EP, that she released together with fellow french BPitch artist Thomas Muller, consists of two tracks, each with one edit respectively by the two artists. The video linked above is the Ellen Allien edit of the leading track. My definitive favorite on the record, which is sure to make your tech-senses tingle with joy in no time.

This has already been around for a few months but is still very worthwhile. It’s Peacetreaty‘s collaboration with everyone’s favorite Anabel Englund, that was released on Dim Mak Records. Born to a family of artists, Anabel really started to pursue a career as a singer after a spell in a Christian youth group sparked her enthusiasm and she has been part of the EDM scene for some time now.
This deep house track turns out a real banger and Anabel’s lyrics and vocals (‘If I knew what to do, I’d learn how to erase you.’) really carry the track to great lengths.
