Popnoname has produced an exclusive remix to preview the release of Russian producer OID’s ‘Bright Side of Life’ EP on PNN Records. Whilst the 12 inch (PNN12) already features remixes from The Field, Popnoname & Phillip Janzen and Mujuice, this unique Popnoname remix does not appear on the EP and is designed to give listeners a taster of things to come. ‘Bright Side of Life’ is an upbeat track whose individual sound allows each of these remixes to stand alone. Popnoname’s exclusive version gives the track a techno twist. It keeps the catchy loops intact and overlaps them with a punchier beat which, interspersed with ambient instrumentals, work together to transmit a sense of anticipation that prepares us for the upcoming EP.

名門コンパクトのポップ部門を代表する一人として知られるイエンス・ウ・バの新作。ギターの音色がソフト・ロッキンな“Flame Of The Pilots”をはじめとするお得意の爽快な歌モノ系テクノ・ポップはもちろん、森の環境音を叙情的な電子音と女声コーラスで包み込んだ極上チルな表題曲などの美麗アンビエントも交え、その聴き心地は脳内を微風が柔らかに吹き抜けるかのよう。彼の音楽性の醍醐味を堪能できる傑作!

Since its inception in 2001, the Pop Ambient compilation series has played host to an incessantly growing pool of highly distinctive artists, yet somehow managed to stay focussed on its overarching aesthetic ideas. Due in no small part to the series’ curator Wolfgang Voigt, each installment was able to create a conclusive narrative, succesfully deploying new talent alongside household names. “Pop Ambient 2015″ will be no different, introducing debutant soundsmiths Thore Pfeiffer and Max Würden alongside Kompakt staples such as Leandro Fresco, Ulf Lohmann, Jens-Uwe Beyer, Dirk Leyers and Gregor Schwellenbach. From dreamy, jingling synth pads to guitar-infused zone-outs and rusty, dystopian textures, you’ll find a lot to love about the next Pop Ambient, expected to hit shelves on November 10th.

Label proprietor James Friedman pulls beatless contributions from far-flung producers for the Moon Rock series. The first chapter came earlier this year as a deluxe, double-LP vinyl set. The second compilation features DJ Spun’s Loose Control Band, an encore appearance for Pittsburgh Track Authority, a collaboration between Venetian artist Gigi Masin and Tempelhof, two pieces from Pop Ambient veteran Jens-Uwe Beyer and many more.
The press release says Volume 2 is “more sonically diverse than Vol. 1, presenting an expansive view of chakra-stimulating space music straddling techno, strange acoustic instrumentation and Balearic flavors.”
