Interview: Bambook

Sweden, a country known for its amazing sensibility for design, has been growing a muscle in another form of art of the modern times – house music.

Another addition to the portfolio goes by the name Bambook, who we had a chat with on Sweden, the dynamics of being a duo, family and, of course, the importance of album artwork. Bambook is a duo, consisting of Eiad Sayegh and Hannes Netzell, said to be no strangers to the house scene. Starting off in 2011 on labels like Circus Recordings, Global ... Read more

Mix #127 By Christian Prommer

Christian Prommer isn’t the average DJ, and is far from expectable in what he creates in the studio or onstage. He has always taken a jazz approach to music: open-minded, progressive, chic and atmospheric. The Munich-based DJ, percussionist and producer already experimented with samplers and drum machines in the late 1980s. Trained by virtuoso piano players and master drummers, he has spent the last 20 years moving between organic and electronic, between techno modernism and Blue Note cool. Prommer is a multi-talented producer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist. He has been a member of the electronic groups De Lux, Fauna Flash, Ghettoraiders, the ... Read more

Full Premiere: Bambook & Mennie feat. Cari Golden – Slip Away (Original Mix)

Put Swedish Bambook and Italian Mennie in the same room. Spice it up with vocals perfectly executed by Los Angeles based Cari Golden and you have “Slip Away”, their new collaborative creation. The original title-track is a smooth and purveys a summery vibe with a dark edge, in part because of the dominant and ominous bass line that holds the suspense throughout the cut. Bambook, consisting of Eiad Sayegh and Hannes Netzell, are no strangers to the house scene having released a superb EP ‘What’s The Use’, also with Cari Golden on vocals, that was heavily supported by Maceo Plex. As well ... Read more
