Hello all, We are planning a series of releases venturing outside of the club world, into a more experimental or chilled / cinematic musical universe. This series (which will boast a different catalog name) will seat aside our still growing output of club EPs and will mostly consist of albums, long players or interesting remixes projects crossing over the two genre. Piano Interrupted is the project of London-based pianist and composer Tom Hodge and French electronic producer Franz Kirmann. Piano Interrupted's creative process starts from the digital manipulation of musical phrases played by piano and other instruments... "Two By Four" is some kind of musical summation of the evolution of Piano Interrupted over the past 3 years, from an exclusively studio project (centred around the manipulation of Tom's piano by Franz computer) to a fully fledged live band with the addition of Greg Hall on the cello and Eric Young on percussion. Some of the tracks on the album have appeared in various forms on previous releases, but the spirit of the band is one of exploration, mutation, recycling and reinventing and the album documents this journey and how the music has evolved though the years. "Etude" and " London Waltz" are more representative of the early days of Piano Interrupted. Recorded as a duo, they are a blend of subtle electronica, skewed rhythms and unusual time signatures, the sonics arguably more cold and the electronic arrangements more prominent. The rest of the material on the record is played as a quartet, and reflects the progressive change the compositions have undergone through the live concerts and studio experiments. Three of the tracks (Hedi, Hobi, Bulbus) have a distinctly Tunisian feel as Piano Interrupted were asked to write the score to 'Papa Hedi'- a intimate documentary film about the life and times of Hedi Jouni, the 'Frank Sinatra' of Tunisia, as told by his grand-daughter. They had access to Hédi Jouni's original recordings, and samples of his music were used as starting point for the compositions. Mastering the whole album with Nils Frahm in Berlin was an important decision Tom and Franz made: " We wanted to finish the record with someone we felt close to in terms of sensibility and who is not only a technician but a great musician and artist- we knew it would give a great coherence to the record." With cinematic piano, dreamy soundscapes, fragile and broken melodies colliding over complex rhythm structures, it's difficult to categorise the musical style of Piano Interrupted. It seems to vary from EP to EP, gig to gig, track to track, even from bar to bar. There are nods to minimalism, film scores and cinematic soundscapes, glitch and ambient, post-rock, neo-classical piano and jazz... The eclectic list goes on but to them in the end, it is unimportant: "What is important is that whenever we meet, we always try to make music that we believe in." More on Piano Interrupted: www.pianointerrupted.com Selected feedbacks: Josh Wink: Right on the "Outside of the club world". A nice surprise for me! Deep LP! Like a lot! Laurent Garnier: 5/5 SUPERB. Jennifer Cardini: Well i'm already a fan ! Alex Egan: Love the ambitious ideas behind this project and it's refreshing to hear such a stunning results! excellent album. Billy Bogus: What a big surprise. Sometimes i feel dog tired of the contemporary dancefloor and i usually shelter in jazz & ambient stuff like this. Really interesting project and way, totally endorsing Piano Interrupted. Jimpster: That's my shit right there! After a full day listening to mediocre house promos this is the perfect antidote! really beautiful and interesting stuff that is going straight on the ipod and will be keeping me sane on many a long hungover journey in the coming months. I'll support it in my charts and try and include on my podcast too of course! Michael Reinboth (Compost): nice nice good for sundays, like it. Marc Pinol: : I have no words to express my happiness with this release. Seeing DOBW going into experimental territories is a dream come true. Keep it up, boys. Hope this is just a first step! Alland Byallo: Beautiful! Just absolutely beautiful. What else is there to say?
“Tell Her To Stay” is a track that realizes the moment, using rough sounds and one-take recordings. The video, created by Cookie Moon, interprets this concept using very simple illustrations and images, and creates a rough-styled visual story to accompany the sound. The video is a modern depiction to the idea of creation, and builds digital scenes which show gentle movement and evolution, shown by unusual animals. These present a fleeing moment, and follow each other blindly. The slow rhythm focuses on the creatures one at a time, cherishing a special moment under the moonlight. https://daysofbeingwildcorp.bandcamp.com/album/with-screening https://www.facebook.com/DOBWlabel/ https://www.facebook.com/middleskyboom/
Do you know that feeling when things feel just right in your life? You know, things that you wish would happen, happen, people that you love, love you back or the kick drum you've been working on for hours suddenly sounds great... Well, the first time Ludo (the man now known as Minor Loud) played me the main riff of Morph it was one of these moments... It sounded like nothing I heard before. And when a few weeks later he played me the track he had made from that riff, it felt so good and so right. We knew straight away we had a unique release in our hands so naturally we wanted unique people to remix it as well. We have been massive fans of Tim Paris and Ivan Smagghe (aka It's A Fine Line) for a long time, and were waiting for the right moment and the right piece of music to approach them for a remix. And it wasn't such a surprise when Jerome, my partner in the label told me that they had agreed to remix Morph... again it just felt right. And when Jerome told me that another hero of ours, the one and only Marc Piñol had agreed to remix it too, it felt so right too. All these people we like and we respect musically and spiritually together on one release, it feels so right. I could try to write a boring description of the music on that release but sometimes words are just pointless. This is a great record with great remixes by great artists, and I'm proud to be able to release it on our humble label. So I'll just thank Ludo for making such an awesome piece of music, It's A Fine Line for their endless talent and Marc for his amazing work (and spirit!) Thanks.

Days Of Being Wild 015 Club Bizarre: La Mort Du P'tit Cheval EP incl. Chloé, Matt Walsh and Catalepsia Remixes ORDER IT HERE: http://daysofbeingwildcorp.bandcamp.com/album/la-mort-du-petit-cheval-ep We'll kick start the year 2013 with Club Bizarre first original release for Days Of Being Wild after their remix of Catalepsia's Conducting The Band before the summer. This could possibly our fist "cold wave" record! Driven by an hypnotic post-punk bass line, La Mort Du P'tit Cheval (translate Death of the lil' horse) is some kind of modern dance music answer to the glorious days of the late 70's/early 80's when bands discovered synthesisers and understood that it was ok to make people dance... A haunting and deranged melody crosses the track , recalling an old 12-bit video game soundtrack, bouncing over a straight 707 beat, like Castelvania's vampire hunter dressed like Robert Smith. Next we have three remixes all very different and all taking the tracks to exciting new edges. First we have Chloé, that we borrowed from the Kill The Dj Family (and what a good idea that was!) We have been massive fans of her work both as a producer and a DJ and we're very proud to have her signing a remix to our label. Her take on La Mort Du P'tit Cheval preserves the post-punk vibe of the original but things are much more funked up this time. Vocals are chopped and telescope over the melodic line, which has been messed up, detuned and played through reverb giving a haunting, ghostly character to her remix, while keeping in with the hypnotic quality of the original. The track manages to be deranged and sexy at the same time, like a more dance floor orientated Colder - (if you remember him... probably one of my favourite french producer signed to the legendary label Output in the early 2000's.) On the flip side we find Matt Walsh version. Matt's been having a crazy busy year playing all over Europe (and beyond)... promoting his label Clouded Vision's first compilation (The Clouded Vision Experiment) as well as starting a new night (Movement with Daniel Avery). But that didn't stop him from delivering an enormous remix for us! Working with mainly analog gear in Scott Fraser's studio and moving on from the post-punk vibe towards a new wave / EBM sound, his remix is still very atmospheric and ghostly, but the punk bass line has been replaced by a hard, vintage synth. one The addition of super dark vocals adds a lot to the tension as deranged synth sequences and sparse drum fills complete this very dark cut of uneasy listening techno. To be played at Movement, or similar bunker like places, very very loud and very very late. Lastly, Catalepsia returns the favour to Club Bizarre by remixing them this time. As I have been referencing post-punk and new wave earlier, I'd say that Catalepsia, nods to a later part of modern musical history here, and more towards what was happening in North America in the late 80's. The beat and groove as well as the deep and repetitive bass pattern place his rework of Club Bizarre firmly in the techno heritage. But the addition of delayed percussions and sound effects give it also an almost tropical slightly psychedelic feel. The release will be coming out first as a limited edition (250) hand stamped 12" on January 21st and 3 weeks later on digital. We will be having a release party in Paris at Batofar on January 3rd with Club Bizarre and Matt Walsh as well as secret live guest. So come and join us to dance and celebrate the death of that poor little horse... and stay tuned for more info on the party.
