Paternoster | Remixes and Versions

paternoster-remix-versions

German label Heart Working Class presents an album of German and Austrian beat makers reimagining Paternoster’s incredible psych-rock opus. Berlin-based label owner, journalist and all-around music enthusiast Stephan Szillus, has just issued a remix album of the favorite 70s, underground Austrian album, featuring some of Austria and Germany’s underground beat-making heroes.

“In 2015 I embarked on a journey to find the remaining members of the short-lived Vienna underground band Paternoster, because my friend Eothen Alapatt of Now-Again Records wanted to re-issue their first and only record, one of Euro prog rock’s holy grails. I met Franz Wippel, the band’s mastermind and songwriter, and Paternoster was re-released as part of the Now-Again Reserve subscription service in April 2016. Around the same time I sent the master files to a few of my beatmaking friends from Germany and Austria, resulting in this collection of remixes and versions. From underground trap to throwback boom-bap and afro house — Paternoster still sounds very much alive, even 44 years after its release.”

nxworries | yes lawd!

nxworries-yes-lawd-2016

Last December, Anderson .Paak and producer Knxwledge put out the „Link Up & Suede“ EP, their first release as NxWorries. The Los Angeles duo have now announced their debut LP, „Yes Lawd!“, which will be released on October 21st via Stones Throw.

„On Yes Lawd!“, .Paak – who calls the album “my best work” – plays theatrically brash version of himself who sings like a ’70s superstar and talks shit like a stone cold player. But the performance is seeded with details from his life, which has seen a fair share of struggle and hard-won triumph. Meanwhile, Knx weaves a tapestry of sampled bits and live fragments—bass, brass and violin—that smooths everything over, reminding us that despite whatever struggle it took to get here… well, you already know the name: NxWorries.

Out October 21th, pre-order on Bandcamp, stream below.

„Coney Island is a audio dedication to my hometown of Brooklyn, New York, but it also serves as a musical thank you card to all of my family and friends whose helped me become the man that I am today. This album is the end result of all the cold seltzer jam session with friends, long hours of perfecting my craft, different skills, advice and tips I’ve learn over the year from a wide arrangement of music friends and a sleep shortage because of my creative juice being on the verge of erupting if I didn’t pour them out of me.“ – Mogillah
