Adam Kroll - The Evil That Men Do


Release Date: 31.03.2015

Polish born Adam Kroll, moved to Germany in 1981. After several years of pursuing his impulse for freedom and creativity, he finally ended up in Köln where he found the inspiration and appropriate atmosphere for producing electronic music. For the past 15 years Adam has been a free spirit, letting his artistic inspirations guide him through life and doing all he wanted to do, such as Drummer, Playing in bands, Sound Design, Label Owner, Live Set Player and Photographer. In the years 2000 he produced records with German techno stalwart labels Traum Schallplatten and Gush Collective and later even his own label named Squonk Records. Around 2008 he decided to retire from the techno scene to embark on a more spiritual journey. That's when he started to work on his Photography and Reggae project called Me & I. A bit later in 2010s he released an ambient album on Planet Terror Records and then a Dub project on Dubkraft Records. 

Today it's an honor to be able to work with such an experienced producer, and none the less, with him working on a new genre in his career, where you can obviously hear his influences as a Drummer, Dub producer, and his talent and virtuosity in sound programming and sampling. 

The cover is also created by Adam, it's a photo that was first exhibited in Köln at Galerie Display. Depicting Adam's best friend Rame, a spiritual man from Bali! 

The Evil That Men Do is a tribute to BillyDragon1's poetry who provided the words and the message on the track 'Evil' this EP is named after. 

Adam has such an amazing mind that we had a wonderful time picking his brain for this EP which is his introduction to the Urban Waves roster. He's got more projects coming and we'll be sure to follow his next steps closely. 

Tracklist:
1. Ulalala 02:51
2. Evil 04:16
3. Slow Sister 03:27
4. Temptation 02:29
5. Arigato 03:46

Paul Kikuchi - Bat of No Bird Island


Release Date: 28.03.2015

Paul Kikuchi is a percussionist, composer, and sound artist whose work explores a wide range of styles – from chamber music to soundscape ecology – while also considering specificity of site and material, differences in awareness and intention, along with aspects of history, experience, and community.

Bat of No Bird Island blends the textured and fragile sonic landscapes of Japanese 78RPM records, static and feedback generated by old walkie-talkies, and traditional instrumental composition in an exploration of identity, displacement, culture, and belonging.  In re-imagining songs from his great grandfather’s collection of Japanese 78rpm records from the 1940’s - and exploring and interpreting his written memoir - Kikuchi has created a work that is a modernistic homage to early Japanese immigrants in the United States. 

Released as a CD, limited edition 10” vinyl record, and website, Bat of No Bird Island is a multi-faceted project that combines narrative, artifact, and sound. Each release format provides a unique insight into the process and inspiration of the work, and a different view of the work itself. The CD and digital download feature the full studio recordings from the project. The 10” record (limited to 100 copies) pairs two of Kikuchi’s re-imaginations with the two original Japanese songs from which they drew inspiration. Finally, the website provides more context in the form of memoir excerpts, photographs, and recordings from the original 78rpm records, while also deconstructing music from the album into short vignettes that are paired with photos and writings. 

Tracklist:
1. Ko Ni Mayou 06:23
2. Four Seasons of the Childhood 07:43
3. Seki No Oiwake 04:38
4. Asazuki Yuzuki 06:16
5. Aizen Yakyoku (part 1) 02:28
6. Aizen Yakyoku (part 2) 01:17

PZG & Dubsknit - We Rob Rave LP


Release Date: 12.01.2015
Label: Polish Juke

At some point in 'I'M TRYNA TELL YA’, a documentary on Chicago footwork scene by Tim & Barry, DJ Spinn talks about the difference between Juke and Footwork. Juke - the genre stemming from Ghetto House - is a club music. On the other hand Footwork - the next evolutionary stage of House music was created for rivalry and dance battles. When DJs played footwork tracks dance floors would be taken over by competing in circles footworkers limiting at the same time the number of clubbers. In order to reconcile the two trends - entertaining and competing, the producers started mixing the two styles. Thus, juke-footwork hybrid was created as a natural consequence of dance music development. A similar pattern was observed in the case of another hybrid - footwork-jungle, or when Trancework compilation was released last year featuring footwork remixes of trance tracks. 

'We Rob Rave' album by two Polish producers - PZG and Dubsknit - is a similar experiment, an attempt at creating yet another style niche on the border of juke and footwork, and (in this case) rave. PZG and Dubsknit are reaching for the rave classics from the first half of the 90s enriching them with energy, humour and footwork lilt. 'Blame Kills You' is an epic reference to the Blame’s track released in Moving Shadow - 'Music Takes You'. 'Desirave' refreshes another classic hit by Ellis Dee - 'Desire' with its classic vocal sample 'Feelings of desire to go out and dance, Come take my hand boy' taken from Ruffneck and Cheri Williams’ ‘The Power - The Rhythm’. Break core sounding 'Forced Mass' is a reinterpretation of 'Take Me higher' Force Mass Motion. Genuinely footwork style - 'I Deal This Way' - reincarnates M&M and Rachel Wallace’s 'I Feel This Way'. 'Lenny Is A Hooligan' is a DJ Hooligan’s sample ‘Rave Nation’ compilation and Lenny Dee’s ‘The Dreamer’. We get a similar music jigsaw puzzle (together with the history of dance music) with 'The Juke Experience'. 

'We Rob Rave' is filled with quotations and reminiscences but is also something more than a well-concocted sentimental sample puzzle. It’s a genre bridge between two crucial places for the history of dance and electronic music, namely America and England, which once again became an active transfer of mutual exchange of idea and inspiration. PZG and Dubsknit’s Ravewerk pictures this situation perfectly. 

Tracklist:
1. Blame Kills You 03:42
2. Desirave 03:55
3. Forced Mass 03:46
4. I Deal This Way 03:30
