Ritornell – Aquarium Eyes

It has been quite some time since Ritornell graced us with their guestmix, but Austrian duo hasn’t stood still. In contrary, this week they’ve launched their second album on Karaoke Kalk and the track above is the album’s title track. It has all the attributes, the warmness and the depth, that we came to like about their music.

You can already buy the album from Zero”, who voted it their record of the week, or wait until next week if you prefer buying on iTunes. We also hope to present you an interview with the guys in the next couple of, so keep coming back!

Volume 10 – mixed by Ritornell

Only a couple of days after our 3rd anniversary (previous claims were based on a rounding error), here is our tenth podcast mixed Austrian duo by Ritornell. The Austrian duo consists of Roman Gerold and Richard Eigner. If you haven’t heard their debut album Golden Solitude on Karaoke Kalk, you should’ve run across their stellar remix for Misel Quitno or maybe Dorian Concept’s remix of The Light, which featured Ninja Tune’s Andreya Triana on vocals.

Together they run their own label Wald Entertainment, and Richard also played the drums on Flying Lotus’ Cosmogramma and the last Dimlite EP. With the latter he also performed live on several occasions, you might remember this video of Kalimba Lifeswamp.

For this mixtape, they chose music from their Karaoke Kalk mates, a brand new remix for Abby Lee Tee and some of their favorites.

Dorian Concept at Elevate Festival

Austrian beatmaker Dorian Concept has been featured heavily this year by the likes of Benji B or Gilles Peterson. There was a digital EP on Domu’s TrebleO label, a first vinyl record has been released recently on Affine Records, and another is going to follow on the new Kindred Spirits sublabel Nod Navigators.

You’ve probably seen the videos of Dorian performing live or even had the pleasure to be there. Today I’ve got a recording of him performing Live At Elevate Festival in Austria. He keeps touring constantly (mostly in Europe), hope you got a chance to catch him live!
