Dear Sonar Kollektiv Friends!

Here is the new Sonar Kollektiv Newsletter including releases from
the Sonar Kollektiv Orchester, Karen P and more…

Sonar Kollektiv For The Ears:


SK170CD/illicity – Sonar Kollektiv Orchester – Guaranteed Niceness
In the year that Jazzanova's Sonar Kollektiv celebrated its 10th anniversary they also launched a new label act, the Sonar Kollektiv Orchester; now here is their debut album. SKO's repertoire is a cross selection of tunes from the SK label back catalogue, the original styles of which cover a wide range from deep house and broken beats to reggae and experimental hip hop. The new arrangements for a 15 piece band, including many acoustic instruments, put the tunes into an orchestral context and provide a brand new listening experience.
As anyone who witnessed their live premiere at the Sonar Kollektiv festival in TAPE CLUB, Berlin during POPKOMM last year will know, the Sonar Kollektiv Orchester_sound just as fresh live on stage as they do on record. So here's hoping there will be a full tour to accompany the release of the album. Record release party is on the 24th of june in Berlin (Lido).

SK186CD/illicity – V.A. – Karen P …broad casting
After her amazing EP (SK186EP) Sonar Kollektiv is going to release her eagerly-awaited compilation!
Following on from Jazzanova and OFF TRACK (Dirk Rumpff), up and coming radio producer, DJ and media consultant Karen P now delivers what is already the third in the successful ...broadcasting mix series.
Karen P earned her stripes working on Gilles Peterson's Worldwide show on BBC Radio 1. Since then she has gone on to establish herself as one of the most up and coming entrepreneurs in the field of radio and internet broadcasting today.
This compilation contains tunes from: Damon Aaron, Jamie Woon, Jimi Tenor, Mocky and many more…
Relax and enjoy the show!


SK187/elektrish – Two Banks Of Four – Shadowlands & Junkyard Gods Remixes
Two Banks of Four gets 2 housey remix treatments by Season & Sygaire and Roland Appel. With the release of their 3rd album Junkyard Gods (SK182CD) on Sonar Kollektiv Two Banks of Four broke new musical boundaries and bridged the gap between Jazz and Electronic Music. The 2 lead members of Two Banks of Four, ROBERT GALLAGHER a.k.a. Earl Zinger and DILLIP HARRIS a.k.a. Demus have a long-standing music experience and never stopped innovating. Such a record deserved further highlight and Sonar Kollektiv enrolled Season & Sygaire and Roland Appel to give a new interpretation to 2 of their favourite tunes Shadowlands and Junkyard Gods for this very special 12“ Two Banks of Four – Remixes(SK187/elektrish).

Exclusive Digital Kollektiv Singles:

DK021/demroots – Frost & Wagner – The Sweetest Delusion Remix/Radio Edit
To celebrate the release of their first compilation Remixes (SBCD0009/dem roots) on Best Seven, 2 of Frost & Wagner’s their best works have been picked up for Digital Kollektiv. Their remix of The Sweetest Delusion feat. Desney Bailey comes originally from American Singer/Songwriter Deyampert and is one of their earliest works. This great number is followed by the wonderful dub version of She Walks Alone of Best Seven artist EVA BE. Their soulful remix gives a new intensity to the original tune that appears on her debut album Moving Without Traveling (SBCD0007/SB7020) and is exclusively released on this Kollektiv.
