NOBODYS FACE - BEATS BEIM DREHEN

BIT007 - 22.11.2019

You�re doing your rounds. Running in circles. Always the same. You know - upside down, round and round. The eternal rat race. Don�t be fooled, a new record won�t get you out of this mess, but hey, it would be a hell of a soundtrack, that�s for sure. �Beats Beim Drehen� is the second producer-album by Nobodys Face. 

14 tracks, entirely instrumental, in part solo, in part produced during sessions with other heavyweights (e.g. Farhot, Torky Tork, Suff Daddy, Dead Rabbit, 7apes, BENDMA, nomono) in the game. Always Green Berlin though. Somewhere between greener grass and sombre corners in the club, spheric lo-fi vibes meet brute signature-bass braggadocio. And you? You�re in the midst of it all.

LITO AKARI - TIME IS ONLY SPACE AND SKY IS NOT THE LIMIT

BLOCK003 - 29.11.2019

Lito Akari's debut album is the narrative of extraterrestrial life arriving on planet earth. Nothing will ever be the same. It's a beat odyssey into the unknown through time and space of the infinite universe. Floating synthesizers and distorted tape deck sounds, atmospheric vocals over crackling vinyl and organic basses - Lito Akari creates weightlessness, infused with frilly drums, Lo-Fi beats drifting off to classic breaks and pumping West Coast vibes. 

The unconventional producer with German-Turkish roots blurs the boundaries between sample based production and life instrumentation. Fragmented sound recordings of contemporary witnesses lead through this experimental journey. The consistent mood of the concept album is also underlined visually with artwork and video art in his own handwriting.

KUSO GVKI - CULTURE

BLOCK002 - 27.09.2019

Son of a bitch. It's been a minute since our antihero & hidden gem left Germany's hip-hop scene amazed by his highly acclaimed debut release. Enter CULTURE, the synthesis of bass heavy, modern production & arrangements, obscure rap cameos and dreamy vocal chops. CULTURE is KUSO GVKI's very own way of setting a new standard of artsiness & musical freedom in 2019. 

The beat wunderkind, raised in a Japanese home, uses his music to reflect on critical topics ranging from materialism and religion to sexism, violence, and racism, yet never without leaving plenty of space to explore his very own concept of modern day identity. KUSO GVKI's filthy art stretches the lines of political correctness over and over again, challenging his audience to look beneath the surface. The shitty brat did it again.
