Our collaboration with Nail started slightly over a year ago, with the «BPMs Vol.1 EP».
In the last months, Nail went on to sign a series of 12″s on labels like Robsoul, or Shabby Doll. He also saw one of his works be included on a Mosaic split EP, while remixing for labels like One Records or Bass Culture, with each one of his new production excelling its predecessor.
We are glad to present his first appearance on the AirPod podcast series. This set was recorded during his latest appearance in Berlin, at the infamous Globus, on March 8th.
A1. Psynote – P_FunkyNote
Airdrop (belatedly) celebrates its fifth anniversary with a bang!
Cinq – meaning ‘five’ in the native tongue of its French founders – features artists from every chapter of the Airdrop story to date alongside some new additions and special guests.
Airdrop’s first record was released in March 2008. The Giraffe EP (AD001) launched Soul Clap into the uppermost strata of house music as well as initiating a longstanding relationship between the label and the producers of Argentina through the input of Franco Cinelli.
Twenty-five records later, following countless label showcases around the world and the establishment of various sub-labels – Aux-Rec for all things re-issued and bootlegged, Greener curated by Andres Zacco and Groovear dedicated to the work of Leonel Castillo – it’s high time to take stock of the journey so far and plan for the future to come.
Cinq sits comfortably between these two outlooks. The exclusive and previously unreleased music cut on the two vinyls map out Airdrop’s future while Paulo’s mixed selection on the included CD offers a comprehensive recap of the label group’s catalogue highlights.
Two vinyls, a mixed CD, a special sticker packed in a beautiful hand-stamped sleeve,
Title: Voltage Control
Label: Greener Records
Format: 12″ only
Cat. No: GREENER006
Release Date: 23.01.14
A1. 808 Nightmare
Back to back with Andres Zacco’s latest release, comes the ‘Voltage Control’ EP – the debut of Franco Cinelli’s new project: Psynote. Adopting a decidedly more electronic slant than for his eponymous productions, Cinelli presents here a selection of pieces that instantly seems to be coming from his most intimate sessions.
Artist: Andres Zacco
Following Spanish producer J.C’s debut 12”, label head Andres Zacco is back on his own Greener imprint, with a new format for this fifth release. Breaking from the usual two-tracker we got used to receive through Greener, here are four original numbers from the Argentine talent – a bare minimum to represent Zacco’s versatility.
Artist: Fritz & Lang
1. Breaking Glass (Original Mix)
French-Argentine duo Fritz & Lang are back on Airdrop Records, following their debut release ‘Crash’ and sophomore EP ‘Confessions’.
Fritz & Lang is the fresh collaboration between French synth maestro Francois Touin and Argentine musician Nico Stofenmacher. ‘Breaking Glass‘ is a three song EP developed over the last twelve months, exposing the latest devises and moods found in their eccentric whip of influences.
Dark and slightly subversive, Fritz & Lang manage to keep things sexy, from the dub-heavy “Breaking Glass” to the smooth machine purr of “No Soul”.
Argentine doyen Leonel Castillo contributes with a straight 909-mix, taking the title track for a ride on the floor.
