Freudenthaler – Bar Rescue EP (Brombért Records)
Release Date: Friday, November 11 2022
Record Sounds Like: jazzy, hiphop influenced deep house
With a touch of swing, a wobbling bass line and all the jazzy elements and cheering voices “The Swingers” gives that perfect vibe to really get a party going.
“Worthy” is nearly cracking that harmony with raw, almost careless cut Afro Latin jazz samples, deep chords and spherical particles embedded, but a funky bass always keeps the easy vibe.
“Lingerie” opens the flip-side with a tight beat, perfectly complemented with a noisy piano lick, strings, horns and some hip hop cuts.
“Overseas Phone Number” then rounds out the release by featuring a swinging rhythm, lovely string pads, pleasant saxophone parts and paying tribute to a French rap classic. Altogether, you will answer it with a smile, for sure. With this in your bag, you´ll be prepared for toughest rescues!
P.S.: Physical release comes with handcrafted, screen printed artwork by fabulous graphic artist Zatina Kessl.
Artist Quote: “We´re very happy to welcome Freudenthaler to our Brombért family. His productions are edgy but soulful. That´s what we go for!” – Brombért”

Boblebad – Tidlig Oppe EP (Beatservice Records)
Creative polyglot Boblebad is back with his latest Beatservice offering, serving up four stirring tracks on the powerfully emotive Tidlig Oppe EP.
Ulf Moen Denneche – better known by his familiar Boblebad moniker – has artistic juice coursing through his very being. Endowed with a formidable creative flair, the producer, musician, and painter has been a much-loved Beatservice mainstay since making his label debut in 2021. With a stylistically adventurous sound that stubbornly refuses to rest in generic boxes, he’s released music on some of the electronic underground’s most important labels – joyfully meandering through Balearic soundscapes, simmering deep house, and proudly uncompromising electronica.
The EP launches with the hyper-atmospheric title track, “Tidlig Oppe.” Here, a sturdy four-four rhythm powers waves of harmonic textures, with luscious chords gliding over throbbing bass as phasing pads. Spacey synth motifs intertwine across propulsive conga lines. Continuing the refined forward motion, “Stoisk Uro” steadily builds over warm bass strokes and energetic drums, with evocative synth solos soaring over undulating pads as free-flowing percussion adds a glorious dynamism to the emotionally-charged harmonics.
“Klam Klem” maintains a characteristically sumptuous sound palette, with tom-heavy drums cutting through space-age pads as staccato synth refrains deliciously ebb and flow over an undulating ever-building groove. Finally, “Kruttugle” completes a sparkling set in a suitably enigmatic style. Snappy drums and loose-knit percussion saunter over thick bass as fizzing pads usher in a soul-searing lead melody, and the affecting chord progressions are joined by bubbling arpeggios for a life-affirming climax.
As ever, this is compelling work from Boblebad. Imbued with more than enough weight to stir esoteric floors, the emotionality that permeates the music augments the rhythms with a profundity that sets it apart from the strictly club-focused — ensuring the collection is equally suited to both introspective meditations and energetic dance abandon.
