Kalabrese


"Rumpelzirkus" Anyone familiar with Zurich's club scene (we know you're out there) will no doubt already know a thing or two about Kalabrese (aka Sascha Winkler), the producer, DJ, promoter and club owner who gained international recognition via his "Chicken Fried Rice" 12" on Perlon. This full-length release brings together a variety of tracks released in a vinyl-only capacity through Stattmusik. Musically, this is an album characterised by a freewheeling approach to funk and a more soulfully-inclined take on house music not too dissimilar to Supercollider's genius, signature sound. Vocals figure in many of the tracks here, including 'Not The Same Shoes', a collaboration with Kate Nash whose lethargic tones compliment the laidback quality of the production. While there's a healthy number of fairly straight-up dancefloor cuts here (such as the sultry 'Lose My Chair') there are plenty of gestures towards less familiar territory, as on the near-acoustic shuffle of 'Hide' and the weirdo slow motion blues jam 'Heartbreak Hotel'. As the album moves towards the final few tracks, Mr. Kalabrese makes sure he goes out with a bang, dishing out plenty of 4/4 funk and some especially unhinged disco in the shape of the 'Auf Dem Hof' which features the man himself throwing some Prince-style vocal manoeuvres over a bed of horns and jumbled up percussion. Ace. in boomkat. [Para Ouvir]
