Brut! Labelmacher startet neues Sublabel

blues! 2 +pop! 1

Wir geben zu, auch wir haben diesen Sound vermisst. Was ist eigentlich aus den vielen Pop-Techno Projekten geworden? Nicht den schlimmen, den fiesen, aber so etwas wie Parfüm? Und die vielen anderen, die Köln eine Zeitlang zum Mittelpunkt des elektronischen Pophimmels machten? Oder, in den Worten von Sebastian, dem Labelmacher:

i am launching a second sub-label bluntly called POP!, and as the name leads you to think it’s devoted to everything techno pop, synth pop and alike.
sure, it seems just like the wrong time to do it with all this current conservative resurgence of all things “classic” (deep house, berlin techno dub school, detroit, the marriage of avant-garde/academic music and electronic dance music, etc..). so, why not? it’s a bit my “what happened?”, not what happened with so-called “authentic/real” techno or house, but what happened with ladomat 2000, kompakt pop, firm, parfüm, etc..? they used to be so good…

Das erste Release von Group Of People, aka Christian Flamm & Christian Syma aka Parfüm jedenfalls hat uns überzeugt, auch wenn es bislang nur ein Remix von Popnoname und Dee Pulse auf einer Singlesided 12″ geworden ist.

    Yo kid! Remember back in the day? The underground was truly the underground.
    People weren’t trying to make tracks. People were about making good songs.
    No chart dropping. No RA. No myspace. It was just straight underground pop writing.
