    Hello real freaks,

    KRAFTJERKZ 056


    Following in the tradition of artists like Detroit in Effect and DJ Di’jital, Kid Ginseng brings us another dose of classic, analog-driven electro with his newest EP, Twenty One. The EP features two versions of three hyper-catchy cuts, and both the remixed versions and originals are capable of holding their own. Kid Ginseng’s work might be compared to early K1 and DJ Godfather, and Twenty One gives us a dose of drum sounds with character, while embracing the sound of the sampler by using diskettes à la 1980's LA electro. Detroit electro, though, continues to be a central inspiration, and the first cut, “Keep Your Distance”, is a prime example of this. The track features watery analog elements that build around a video-game inspired vocal sample, and its lo-fi percussion gives it an authentic, analog touch. The remix double of this track, “Keep Your Distance (Trashcan mix)”, has a different feeling altogether but nothing is lost. A muted electro synth melody hooks us, as does slapping, steady percussion. But “Keep Your distance” is just the first example of the infectious melody and raw character that permeates the entire EP. “Bang the Boom (Bare Bones Mix)” delivers a similar vibe, but leans darker with a deep, gritty bassline that fuels the shadowy force of the track. It’s twin remix, “Bang the Room”, maintains the same beat structure but switches it up with some added vocals that bring extra fire to the dance track. The real standout, however, is the dance floor banger “Roller Rink Scratch”, which employs classic scratch samples from DJ Quest. The samples not only energize the body and mind, but they maintain that lo-fi feel, and therefore, rather than dominating the track, keep it balanced. In fact, for such power bangers, the EP feels extremely balanced, and nothing feels out of place. All elements blend well together and deliver an incredibly rewarding listen that is pretty much guaranteed to get you out of your seat. It’s one of Kid Ginseng's best yet.

    Various Artists - Machine Funk Is Our Game Volume 5


    Will be out at the usual European shops which stock electro.


    support the label direct.


    pre-order 12" vinyl here:


    https://kraftjerkz.bandcamp.co…funk-is-our-game-volume-5


    KRAFTJERKZ 055


    The Kraftjerkz compilation series Machine Funk is our Game is back with another installment. Volume 5 features some long-time players like Alonzo and DJ Di’jital, while also introducing some new names to the Kraftjerkz roster as well. Alonzo starts the comp strong with a hyper catchy, growling cut that derives its fuel from a low, moody synth line that expands like a monster coming out of the murky abyss. High-pitched, zany synth rhythm keeps everything in balance, though, and the looping melody on this track is so solid that you can endlessly ride it. Konerytmi’s track, “Replikantti” is an electro cut whose tight, truncated percussive elements and warp-speed synth arpeggiation creates both the melody and the rhythm, keeping us hooked from start to finish. The EP turns a bit with the next track, “TicTac” by Zarcon, that begins with a UFO-infused vocal, before squelchy acid melody and speedy, twinkling synth takes over. DJ Di’jital’s track, like all of the tracks he releases on Kraftjerkz, is a quality standout, and its name says it all. “Jit it Up” delivers a hefty dose of Detroit-style jit / footwork, with its driving electro beat and laser-quick synth that seems to touch 150 BPM territory. What follows is the vocoder-laced cut from Cybereign, “Breathing Apparatus,” remixed by Mr. Kraftjerkz himself, Kid Ginseng. Finally, just when we think we’ve maxxed out our senses, the EP ends on the super weird, super original track, “Shaftwerk” from Bart Karlos. It’s a no-holds-barred banger meant to work the body. Bottom line: there’s really no filler on Machine Funk is Our Game, Vol 5. It might even be the best installment of the compilation series yet. In terms of quality, this is electro at its finest, and any of these six tracks would enhance any late-night set.

    THURS. MARCH 25th 5pm EDT


    Serotoninusa is proud to present a 40 minute studio megamix of new and classic electro by the adventurous turntablist trio Elektro Flexx: DJ Quest, DJ 2 Fresh, and Kid Ginseng. This mix is paired with the equally adventurous video art of Liz Wendelbo.


    DJ Quest, AKA Questosahn, is a pioneer in Bay Area turntablism, the originator of the widely adopted “Hamster Style” scratching technique, and co-creator of the first ever battle break record, “Hamster Breaks” (1992). He is also the founder of Jazz/Hip-Hop trio LiveHuman, a group known for its improvisational use of the turntable as an instrument.


    DJ 2Fresh began flexing his quickmixing skills at Bay Area house parties, radio stations and major venues in 1985, and by the late 90’s he achieved national, international, and major label success. He joined forces with DJ Quest as “Mission Cartel” on a series of remixes and vinyl “Skipless-Combo” DJ tool battle records.


    Bahamian-born DJ Kid Gensing has been mixing and scratching since 1997. He runs the critically acclaimed Kraftjerkz label, has released with Lost Soul Enterprises, Basement Floor, Hip Hop Slam, and La La Land, and has collaborated with the likes of DJ Qbert, Shortkut, and Detroit technobass pioneer DJ Di’jital. In 1999 he produced an electrofunk megamix cassette distributed by Turntablelab and the famous Fat Beats NYC. He is also touring turntablist for legendary funk group, Tom Tom Club .
