Vakum Records, 2017
VKM005

I tried making house music once like 6-7 years ago and failed miserably, then I decided to become a listener. When I was growing up most of the musicians I knew had a hard time coping with electronic music. They used to say that it was easy to make and that anybody could do it because it was practically made by the computer. Well, tough shit, it isn’t. I do agree that electronic music is not for everyone but I always refused to consider it “mall boring music”.

House has been an up and coming genre for decades. Small labels from all over the world release hundreds of releases a year and it’s impossible to keep up. Vakum is another label in the mix. They have been active for a couple of years releasing small compilations of house and acid tracks that are primal and essential. House music is being associated again with underground parties and after-hours nightclubs.

The Nite Owl Diner, 2017
DINER008

Disaster struck out Oakland last December when a fire broke out inside the famous DIY art space and venue named “Ghost Ship”. Thirty six people lost their lives that night and Johnny Igaz a.k.a. Nackt was one of them.

The EP was released posthumously a couple of weeks ago by The Nite Owl Diner, a Chicago label that had been in touch with Nackt about releasing this record during this year. The EP was already planned and completed before the tragedy and is a collection of 4 acid house and techno tracks with the collaboration of producers Kendig and CM-4. R.I.P. Johnny.
