LWE Podcast 200: Prosumer

There is no more suitable capstone for LWE’s podcast series than a mix from Prosumer, who rose to the occasion with a fun and funk filled 75 minutes I’ve been dreaming about since starting LWE.

Murat Tepeli, Fee Fi Foe Funk For Me

On Fee Fi Foe Funk For Me, Murat Tepeli and his remixers — Prosumer and Damiano von Eckert — display a deft grasp of hooks which make for a solid EP.

LWE Podcast 145: Murat Tepeli

LWE got in touch with Murat Tepeli to find out more about the making of Serenity, whether we’re likely to see further collaborations with Prosumer, and what role music plays in a life that is primarily dedicated to saving lives. He also mixed our 145th exclusive podcast, a deeply felt collection of house and techno that is executed with surgical precision.

Prosumer, Panorama Bar 03

The third installation in the Panorama Bar succession is mixed by Prosumer, whose focus isn’t on profiling new and exclusive tracks but rather putting together a solid mix that pays no heed to release dates.

Various Artists, Fünf

The celebration of Ostgut Ton’s fifth birthday is a 2-CD compilation containing all new material from nearly everyone ever associated with the label.

Mount Kimbie, Remixes Pt. 2

Clearly cognizant of Mount Kimbie’s cross-border appeal to techno/house heads, Hotflush wisely spends the second remix EP on the 4×4 axis with mixes from head honcho, Paul Rose, and Panorama Bar residents Prosumer and Tama Sumo.

LWE Interviews Tama Sumo

Months after her popularity boom and the world tour that ensued shortly after, we checked in with Tama Sumo to get the scoop on the Panorama Bar renovations, the state of the Berlin club scene, and where she’s heading next.

Marcel Dettmann/Prosumer & Tama Sumo, Phantasma Vol. 3

When you’re a label as well respected as Diamonds & Pearls, audiences tend to expect a lot from each new platter. Add boldfaced names like Tobias Freund and Efdemin, the pair responsible for the first of D&P’s Phantasma series, and expectations could’ve burst through the ceiling. Yet after “Vol. 1” struggled to satisfy as anticipated (largely down to a surprisingly lackluster Efdemin cut), the Phantasma series took a dip into relative obscurity. To be sure, this was listeners’ loss as “Vol.2” offered “Choices,” a resplendent Matthew Styles and Dinky collaboration and “Machupichu,” a Pier Bucci joint of nearly equal quality. “Vol. 3,” however, is unlikely to suffer a similar fate with Marcel Dettmann on one side and a Prosumer/Tama Sumo collaboration on the other. As the latter has already evinced in the mix (Panorama Bar 02, to be specific), this is a record many DJs won’t want to leave home without.

Prosumer & Murat Tepeli, U & I/The Jam

Touching hearts is only half of the Prosumer & Murat Tepeli experience, as evidenced once again by their first single since 2008, the rousing “U & I/The Jam.” Setting aside emotional themes to reach for their dancing shoes, Prosumer and Tepeli have crafted an irresistible call to the floor.

Win tickets to Fabric’s Deep Space night

This Saturday, June 7th, Francois K and Brendon Moeller are packing their gear into the spaceship to bring NYC’s Deep Space night to London club extraordinaire, Fabric. Moeller (as Beat Pharmacy) will be performing with MC Spaceape in anticipation of his forthcoming dub protest album. And if that wasn’t enough, Prosumer, Murat Tepeli and their […]

Little White Earbuds February Charts

Graphic by The Economist 01. Prosumer & Murat Tepeli, Serenity [Ostgut Tonträger] (buy CD) On Serenity, Achim and Murat deftly avoid the pitfalls of making anachronistic music while crafting stylistically faithful floor jackers. I’m enthralled with its full-bodied, Chicago-styled intonation and true emotional depth; it’s all too rare to personally identify with a house track […]

Prosumer & Murat Tepeli interview (pt.2)

Thanks to the wonders of Skype, here are the guys in Prosumer’s Berlin flat during the interview. In part two of our conversation, Achim and Murat talk about their influences, the future of vinyl, and that geil gay crowd.

LWE’s Prosumer & Murat Tepeli interview

Achim Brandenburg (better known as Prosumer) and Murat Tepeli make no bones about their love for house music’s deep and formative days; and you won’t hear them apologizing for churning out irresistible tunes reverent to the classics and relevant to modern clubbers in equal measures. Serenity, their debut album recently released on Ostgut Tonträger, finds […]

LWE’s Top 50 Tracks of 2007

01. Matthew Dear, “Don & Sherri” [Ghostly International] (buy) [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Picking my favorite track from Asa Breed was no small task, but “Don & Sherri” emerged as the winner because it combines all of Matthew Dear’s varied facets in one brief tune. He unabashedly revels in the weird (both […]
