New Satin Jackets single out now



Northern Lights’ is the new single from German music producer Tim Bernhardt of Satin Jackets and Berlin-based British vocalist and songwriter David Harks.  Released on Belgium’s Eskimo Recordings it follows on from recent Satin Jackets hits such as ‘Feel Good’ and ‘Never Enough’ and is sure to find favour with anyone who likes their disco Balearic and the pop cosmic.
 
Following a recent trip to Norway to work with fellow Eskimo artists Atella and Cavego, Tim was moved to try and capture some of his experiences there in musical form. “After experiencing a world known for its Northern Lights, I wanted to take that concept and run with it, asking myself how we could reflect this phenomena in music," Tim explains. "Despite a busy schedule, I couldn't help but take a day off and go on a trip exploring the country and the depths and beauty of one of the Fjords in the area. It was absolutely breath-taking."
 
Inspired by Tim’s experiences and music David’s lyrics narrate a journey out on the cosmic highway to find the Northern Lights, his soft vocal delivery underpinning the song’s message and bringing a sense of warmth, nostalgia and expectation as we’re led out in the dusk to explore the both the world below and skies above them. "We locked ourselves into the studio for a few days to let our imagination take its course and weave the impressions into music,” David explains. “The end result was so vivid, it felt like I had been there for it all along."

New Atella single out now



It’s no secret that Scandinavia has become the go-to destination for those who like their electronic music to come with a distinctly ‘cosmic’ flavour. Whether it’s the intergalactic disco of Prins Thomas and Lindstrøm or the otherworldly electronica of Röyksopp, it’s clear the long nights and wide-open starry skies have been a huge inspiration for many. The latest in this distinguished line of sonic-cosmonauts are Norwegian duo Atella whose new single, ‘Anyone Out There?’ ft. fellow Norwegian Cal on vocals, is a wonderful slice of optimistic Cosmo-Pop backed by the further out-there instrumental ‘In The Days of the Green’.
 
Whilst the pair grew up almost 1500 km apart, Magnus north of the Arctic Circle and Johannes in the south of the country, they shared a passion for both music and outer space. Now both based in Bergen, the cultural capital of Norway, the duo have married those twin obsessions to craft a number of critically acclaimed singles for Belgium’s Eskimo Recordings. For ‘Anyone Out There?’ the duo have teamed up with 'Cal', the alias of singer and songwriter Frida Amundsen who at just 24 already has two studio albums, several hit singles and years of song writing experience under her belt and whose stunning vocals lift the track into high-orbit.
 
“It’s easy to end up feeling lost in this world, even though it should feel like home,” explain Atella. “Seeing a shining future from afar doesn’t mean that this is what we are dreaming of. As we are closing in, things might get clearer. If we then suddenly realize we chose a wrong path, should we turn back and go to start, or should we keep on going, in a new direction? «Anyone Out There?» Picks up signals from the past and shoots them into the future. While wondering what can be out there, the most peculiar things are happening just outside our own planet. What might look like a colourful sensation in the sky might just, if you look close enough, be a rocky traveller passing us by.

New Gemini Brothers single out now



A highlight of Eskimo Recordings’ critically acclaimed compilation ‘The Red CollectionGemini Brothers’ hypnotic ‘Travel Inside’ now gets a full single release, complete with a brand new track ‘Nights With Lorelai’ and a remix from Lossless label bosses SBTH. Classic late night house music the suitably titled ‘Travel Inside’ takes us deep on a trip as its soft vocals, echoing synths, chugging beats and discombobulated bleeps provide a space for you to lose yourself on the dance floor.

No less trippy is ’Nights With Lorelai’, another heady mix of elusive melodies, acidic squelches, luminous textures and wordless chants that wouldn’t sound out of place on an album like Orbital’s classic ‘Brown’ album. Completing the package German duo SBTH (Mathias Schober (aka SHOW-B) and Thomas Herb) pull the tracks individual elements apart and put the drums front and centre for their dubbed out remix.

Gemini Brothers are Bucharest based Ionut and Razvan Chiron. With releases on labels such as Skint, Night Noise, Nein Records and now Eskimo Recordings the pair’s unique take on house music has seen them become firm favourites of everyone from Andrew Weatherall to Tiga, Psychemagik to John Talabot.

New Blende single out now

"None of that bouncy banana boat nonsense, it's more real like this."



London based Swedish producer, song writer and DJ Blende returns to Eskimo Recordings with ‘Back To Summertime’, an outrageously funky slice of disco house featuring the stunning vocals of former The Rapture vocalist Mattie Safer.

"The song came about from one of those demos you sometimes sit with that never seem to lead to anything," explains Blende. "I was about ready to give up on it when Mattie recorded this brilliant vocal that probably would make even George Benson envious, and after that it was a smooth ride. I must admit I wasn't paying too much attention to the lyrics at first and even though the title is hinting at the opposite it's really quite a sad song. But I like that aspect; you book a resort holiday and then it rains for two weeks. None of that bouncy banana boat nonsense, it's more real like this."

"I loved the track that Johan delivered and it reminded me of summer festivals and parties on the beach," recalls Mattie Safer. "The song is a story, two lovers who have let the complications and burdens of everyday life get in the way of their romance. The idea is to back to the innocence and simplicity of a carefree summer fling, just enjoying each other and life. You can run away from love but you can't hide forever. It comes back around."

Upping the synth-funk pressure Norwegian producer Cavego follows up his triumphant remix of Satin Jackets (one of Beatport’s biggest sellers in 2016) with not one but two, smooth as satin sheets remixes, sure to cause a population spike later this year. Finally completing the package Australian born, Munich based, producer TSM aka This Soft Machine delivers a remix that instantly recalls the strings, keys and heartbreak of classic Paradise Garage era disco.

New Rey & Kjavik single out now



‘Akya’ is the new single from Frankfurt born and based artist Rey & Kjavik, his debut release for Belgium’s Eskimo Recordings. Powered by a heady mix of throbbing bass, head spinning synths and hypnotic chants it follows on from acclaimed releases on some of electronic music’s best labels such as Get Physical, Compost Black, Katermukke and Exploited, and his own label (and clothing brand) RKJVK.

Drawing inspiration from his DJ travels around the world, from a life changing set at The Kazbah-stage at his first Burning Man festival to shows everywhere from San Francisco to Istanbul, Rey & Kjavik’s sound is a melting pot of ideas and influences. 'Akya' is the perfect example of this eclectic approach in action and will leave you in little wonder why Rey & Kjavik is considered one of Germany’s most exciting new producers and in-demand the world over.

Proudly presenting The Red Collection



Easing us into 2017, Eskimo Recordings, returns with The Red Collection. The 6th instalment in the label’s colour series it brings together the best of the label’s recent releases with unreleased gems from their friends and family including Satin Jackets, Atella, This Soft Machine and many more. Across 13 tracks (and a bonus mix CD) ‘The Red Collection’ expertly segues between leftfield electronic pop, disco and house, taking us from the frozen north to the souks of the middle east and beyond.
 
Providing us with the perfect palette cleanser Icelandic producer Hermigervill opens the compilation’s account with the crystalline electronica of ‘Solitaire’ before passing the baton onto Norwegian duo Atella, whose collaboration with Frøder (herself named on of Scandinavia’s most exciting new talents by NYLON) ‘Closer To Life’ has already been hailed by Clash as a “glittering alt pop belter” and by Earmilk as “dark and enigmatic” with “a sound to rival fellow Norwegians Röyksopp”.
 
Making a quick detour east to the city of Kazan in Russia fast rising producer Antenna delivers an ode to his favourite hookah tobacco in the shape of ‘Love 66’, a breezy slo-mo disco gem filled with Balearic charm. Returning to Scandinavia Philco Fiction’s Turid Alida Solberg delivers her solo debut as Else Born, the heartbreaking ‘This Time/Remember’ lauded as a “masterclass in modern electronic pop” by The Line of Best Fit upon its original release last November.
 
As we begin to push the tempo it’s the turn of Japanese based, British producer Max Essa who after critically acclaimed releases for labels such as Is It Balearic?, Lex Wax and Mareh Music makes a welcome debut on Eskimo with ‘Your Cathedrals Re-Imagined’, a sublime moment of electronic funk. With the party in full swing, it’s time for one of Eskimo’s biggest hitters in recent years Satin Jackets to do what they do best, bringing together their original brand of diva funk and smooth disco and the refreshing vocals of the talented Niya Wells. A perfect fusion of electro-pop, disco and soul
 
LA based French duo Blue Motel follow up their recent remix for Else Born with their first original material for the label. Showing just why they’ve already been called upon to add their French touch to the likes of Classix, Poolside and Kraak & Smaak, ‘Lunch With The King’ is the kind of divine house music that French producers do so well, swirling electronic melodies and pulsating bass lines combing to joyous effect.
 
Next up we have Greek producer NTEIBINT whose ‘Love’ goes to show just why he has become one of Eskimo’s go to artists in recent years, timeless and indelible music for both body and soul. Dutch DJs SHMLSS take time out from running their vinyl only label XXX and curating the disco playlist at 22Tracks Amsterdam to bring us ‘Train Ride to the Middle East’, a heady psychedelic brew of twisted disco and Middle Eastern sounds that hints at the eclectic nature of their own DJ sets.
 
With the party in full swing Romanian twins The Gemini Brothers take us deep into house territory with the hypnotic bleeps and beats of ‘Travel Inside’ and leaving us with no doubt whilst their productions have received strong support from everyone from Andrew Weatherall to Tiga, Psychemagik to John Talabot. Over to Germany next and producer Rey & Kjavik whose ‘Akya’ draws inspiration from his DJ travels in Istanbul and beyond. The resulting mix of throbbing bass, head spinning synths and chants will leave you in little wonder why he’s considered one of Germany’s most exciting new producers.
 
Ending the compilation on a high Eskimo turn to two of their regular faces. Australian born, Munich based TSM aka This Soft Machine delivers an outstanding cut of otherworldly disco with a futurist sheen complete with Swedish singer Erik Lindestad aka The Land Below on the vocals and plenty of cowbell. Finally easing us into the night are duo Horixon whose ‘The Beekeeper’ features vocals from Birsen from one of Belgium’s fastest rising acts Hydrogen Sea. For The Red Collection, Horixon’s label friends Atella have reworked the original to create the perfect closing track for The Red Collection.
 
Since launching in the year 2000, Gent based Eskimo Recordings has gone onto become one of the leading electronic music labels in the world releasing genre defining artist albums and compilations from the likes of Aeroplane, Lindstrøm, Prins Thomas, The Glimmers, Optimo, Psychemagik and many more. Since its launch in 2013 the ‘Colour’ series, now in its 6th edition, has continued to build upon the label’s reputation, not only for discovering and curating great music but for great design and the cover for The Red Collection features a stunning photo by Berlin artist Julia Baier taken from her acclaimed series ‘Water Matters’.
