The month of July brought an amazing array of impressive albums, stunning releases and fantastic remixes from the likes of DJ Bone, Cleveland, JMII, Ripperton, Jonathan Kusuma, &Me, Dixon, Copyrider, Argoman and Trikk released via Life & Death, Permanent Vacation, Innervisions, ESP Institute, Correspondant, Lossless & Something Happening Somewhere, Diesel Eyewear, Endless, Beans and Beacon and Keinemusik. Tracks are listed in no particular order.
Fabian Fenk and Anton Feist tend to melt the supposedly incongruous into a unique musical unity. The Berlin twosome did not merely tie together the German and the English definite article “The /Das” for the purpose of their moniker, but rather play with different genres between ambient techno and dark pop to venture into new territories of contemporary dance music. ‘Drug Dilling EP‘ sees the duo return to Italians finest Life and Death with raw and soft textures, whereas this time club-friendly elements clearly stick out.
