Chris Zippel is a prominent new entrant on Elektrolux. For more than 15 years, he has been working as producer and remixer for Pop and Dance stars such as Pet Shop Boys, Robbie Williams, Snap, Schiller, Baby D., Marmion or the Berlin band ‘Ich & Ich’ around Annette Humpe. In his Berlin-based sound lab, the congenial perfectionist offers hi tech support for record labels and musicians.
More than 300 outstanding mastering works prove Chris Zippels post production competence. The musical autodidact has been using synthesizers since the middle of the 80s. In the course of studio productions in his hometown, Chris Zippel quite early met the protagonists of the so called ‘Berliner Schule’ – electronic ‘grandmasters’ like Stefan Kaske (Mythos), whose innovative understanding of sound considerably influenced Zippels work. By two internationally respected solo albums on Ninetysix Sounds, he set some new courses in the Electronica genre at the end of the nineties.
Under the project title ‘genuine - nu ambient grooves’, Chris Zippel created a very personal interpretation of Ambient using marching TripHop-Beats, intensive atmospheres and melancholic Pop references – also a reference to his ‘heroes’ Cocteau Twins, The Orb, Sigur Ros, Boards of Canada or Future Sound of London.
Moreover, the new ‘Genuine Horizon’ features a number of high class vocal partners: ‘Ich & Ich’ singer Adel Tawil, Tusnelda from Kopenhagen (who e.g. worked with Jam El Mar/Jam & Spoon), the New Yorker singer and performance artist Cindy Rivera or Sascha Baschin (Ultraviolet/Berlin). ‘Ich & Ich’ producer Sebastian Kirchner plays the guitar on 5 of 10 tracks. Thus, Zippels proven ‘Genuine’ concept gets a new dimension: ‘My music should not be mere entertainment but should touch the audience emotionally’, Zippel describes his musical target. ‘At best, a unique moment of sound emerges which implies a silent longing.’ But surely a kind of addiction as well: While listening to Chris Zippels Chill Pop fantasies like ‘Again’, ‘Blade’ or ‘Particle’ with pleasure, you will get more than an idea what ‘ Genuine Horizon’ can do to your heart, brain and ears …

Various Artists - The Beatless Collection Vol. 1

Artist: Various Artists
P: 2008
Elektrolux e10100000cd
When looking back on the development of electronic dance music during the past twenty years in fast forward mode, one of the few remaining constants is the beat: living metre of the club, catalyser of motor activity, heartbeat of the dancer. But why?
Meanwhile, the trendsetters of the current electronica scene follow a more differentiated approach. Pace and rhythmicity, the syncopic chords and sequences and, last but not least, deep emotional worlds of sound are positioning this new form of electronic dance music clearly in a club context without the bass drum playing her sometimes even crushing role. Finally, energetic tracks with musicality and sensual passion can be produced without drums very well. Now, Elektrolux mastermind Alex Azary applies himself to this phenomenon by the first and definitely ground-breaking compilation in the still young year 2008. This is just a logical consequence as Alex Azary, together with his co-producer Gabriel Le Mar, already anticipated a comparable sound aesthetics at his gigs at the UK cult club Orbit, Leeds, about ten years ago. This hybrid of club music and experimental electronics also characterizes the joint productions of Alex Azary and Gabriel Le Mar's brand new Subsonic Park project in terms of pace, deepness and the unterstanding of dub. On "the Beatless Collection", two tracks of the project can be found. The other compilation contributors are Kompakt producers Gui Boratto and Hiroshi Watanabe (aka Kaito), Anders Trentemøller (Copenhagen) Joris Voorn, Chymera, Ovum and Delsin ambassador of Ireland, Taho or Deadmau5 ˆ the list just reads like the who is who of current club music.
Many of the tracks now are released on CD for the first time. When downloading the album at Beatport or iTunes, you will get an additional mixed version with your download. Then at the latest, the circle to club aesthetics closes irrevocably.
