146401_webThis June marks the beginning of a series of albums and EP’s recorded at the studio in the confines of the lauded Parisian Hotel Costes, inaugurating the scheduled releases is ’12 Days A Week’, a new album from the duo behind the project, Masomenos.
‘’After more than fifteen volumes of the Hôtel Costes’ infamous compilation series, selected and mixed by Stephane Pompougnac, there remained a huge demand to deliver new releases. The hotel chose instead to grow its musical presence over streaming platforms, accepting an invitation to become a curator for Apple music, where they release monthly playlists curated by the Studio HC team in collaboration with Watch Your Music.
During this time and a planned expansion of the hotel, a music production studio was introduced, hidden in the maze of the soon to be bigger Costes. STUDIO HC is run by the Masomenos team who have a long history of collaboration with the hotel in various forms and over the past two years have invited and worked with both classical and jazz musicians at, Masomenos merged into different entities to become merely a conductor, unearthing a wide array of different bands, and creating an intriguing yet warm, acoustic and electronic, downtempo/ambient sound for STUDIO HC. As a result the label is due to present seven albums and eight EPS to be released across the next two years from those involved in this endeavor.’’
Here ’12 Days A Week’ sees Masomenos, composed of Joan Costes and Adrien De Maublanc, deliver a modern tribute to the downtempo aesthetic of the revered compilation series, delivering a wide array of ethereal moods, textured atmospherics, organic drum grooves and avant garde jazz influences.
The duo have a long history of collaboration with the Hotel, having headed up a previous series focusing on a more minimal oriented sound with releases from Glacial, Seuil and themselves with their ‘Costes presents Bon Voyage’ project.
Here though ’12 Days A Week’ definitely marks a new era in the Masomenos Sound and the beginning of an exciting few years worth of music to come…

W13_CD_12pg_s1Fifth horror punk manifesto The Dixie Dead is certainly not stingy when it comes to good old-fashioned ghost stories: this time the maestro used celluloid classics such as „Poltergeist“ and „Hands of the Ripper“ for inspiration. Massive metal riffs and industrial undertones deliver the eerie soundtrack for those grim tales.

StrD_COVER_006.inddStripped Down hits a super sixth release with the hugely prolific Basti Grub at the helm. Over more than a decade this German producer has turned out an always evolving and vast amount of EPs and LPs. Using a range of different instruments and modular synths he cooks up inventive minimal tracks that are dance floor focused but packed with new ideas. First up here is solo track ‘Would Be An Angel’ which has a zoned out quality thanks to the harmonic bell sounds and stripped back rhythms. Enchanting vocals are hypnotic and the various breakdowns build the tension, only for things to roll on again and surely get huge reactions in the clubs. ‘Amelie’ is the second fantastic offering and finds Grub link with DJ Slowhand, who has been resident at Tanzhaus West FFM since 2011. Together they cook up a sparse techno track that takes you on a journey to the heavens, with lush chords, choral vocals and synth orchestration all exuding clean, crisp and classy feelings of subtle euphoria.
