VOLTERY 5 Shadows video

VIDEO PREMIERE: Voltery “5 Shadows” on FACT TV

April 1st, 2015

FACT TV have premiered the official music video for VOLTERY “5 Shadows”, the latest extract from SND.PE VOL.04!

http://www.factmag.com/2015/04/01/sound-pellegrino-share-volterys-new-video-for-5-shadows/

Directed by Tony Sanm & Reda Taoussi

About the track, Teki Latex says: “Voltery is a young producer hailing from Strasbourg, part of the up-and-coming eastern french collective Friendship. Five Shadows is an elegant and tense techno track with a sense of restrain, as if a dark malevolent storm was approaching – this is perfectly illustrated by Sanm & Taoussi’s video depicting the slow and stressful preparation stage of a supposed burglary by a Nissan 350 Fairlady Z-equipped group of thieves.”

Tony Sanm: “Reda Taoussi and me are big fans of heist movies. The atmosphere, the outfits, the weapons… We also wanted to offer a lecture of our youth. In this case two youngsters under pressure who are going to commit a criminal act. We were interested in focusing on the wait and the preparation before the breaking point, when they get amped up… Like ‘Yeah, let’s do this. Let’s do this now.’ In a different dimension, these same guys might have cancelled the whole thing. We wanted to show this kind of stress very specific to the big moments in our lives. The adrenaline, the strange feeling that you’re in a movie although it feels more real than ever. It’s a short illustration of the foggy uncertainty we’re living in and the memories we’re left with.”

YES it’s been more than a year since we put out the last episode of the Sound Pellegrino Podcast, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been recording new DJ mixes!

Atelier Malinowsky

Introducing Atelier Malinowsky!

logo Atelier Malinowsky

The most attentive fans have already spotted this logo on the back cover of SND.PE VOL.04 and today we’re very excited to share the news that Nicolas Malinowsky, our beloved friend and artist, solely responsible for every Sound Pellegrino artwork since we launched the label in 2009 has just started a new design studio called ATELIER MALINOWSKY with his wife Sarah!

Read all about them on their website http://www.atelier-malinowsky.com

Of course you already know his work for Sound Pellegrino but Nicolas and Sarah have also collaborated on projects for Domus Magazine, Nike, Salomon, Pernod-Ricard, Isakin and Fendi…

Speaking of which, here’s a massive surprise: Two years ago, Nicolas has produced a track entirely made of skateboarding sounds, from a video part he directed and chopped in Ableton. The result was an incredible track and video simply called “Skateboarder” released on SND.PE VOL.01 and noticed by many, including The Berrics. But it also made a great impression on creatives, including Fendi who commissioned Malinowsky to give a similar treatment to their iconic handbag the 3Baguette. Once again, all sounds are produced with the bag itself, from the leather to the metal closure and the strap! And a very slick video reinterprets Nicolas’ performance:

Yes, this really happened.

Plus, true story: all sounds have been recorded with the same portable equipment we’ve been using to do the Sound Pellegrino podcast for years :)

They also have designed a capsule collection with the Barbès-based brand ISAKIN, using African fabrics purchased on the legendary Parisian boulevard, cut diagonally and applied over the logo for the brand to embrace and honour the neighbourhood’s fashion legacy.

And finally, here’s an in-depth interview with Nicolas in the Danish magazine Bitchslap, where he talks about his multiple projects, the launch of Atelier Malinowsky, his collaboration with Sound Pellegrino and how music and skateboarding have always connected his activities together. (Click photos to enlarge)

Clash Music premieres Joe Howe’s “ZONED REMINDER”!
http://www.clashmusic.com/news/premiere-joe-howe-zoned-reminder

“Brilliantly bonkers electronic pop (…) Gloriously inventive, Joe Howe continues to trod his own path. ‘Zoned Reminder’ shares the vivid technicolour of fellow city-dwellers Rustie and Hudson Mohawke, but there’s a skewed sensibility here which belongs entirely to the producer himself.”

Meet Koyote

Fact Magazine & Sound Pellegrino present MEET KOYOTE on FACT TV

December 18th, 2014
by Emile Shahidi

FACT TV and Sound Pellegrino presents Meet Koyote, a documentary about one of French club music’s best-kept secret.

Although he’s far from a household name, key figures in French clubbing such as Teki Latex, DJ Orgasmic and Manare – all featured in Meet Koyote, along with Detroit’s DJ Nasty and others – revere Koyote for his encyclopaedic knowledge of dance music, his musical approach (a healthy combination of wide-eyed naivety and not giving a fuck) and his contribution to the Paris scene as a booker, DJ and producer.

Emile Shahidi – label manager at Sound Pellegrino, who just released Koyote’s latest EP, Let Me Tell You What I’ve Got – compares Koyote’s music to Matt Groening using high school bands to play music in The Simpsons, despite it being arranged by professionals. “This EP reminds me of that approach”, he explains, “anti-elitist sounds and instruments serving a very confident release that stretches our personal definitions of house to spy movie scores played by children, characterised with playfulness and radiating the pure joy of creating music.”

Let Me Tell You What I’ve Got is out now on Sound Pellegrino on both vinyl and digital (the vinyl version features a track exclusive to the 12″, ‘Brigitte’. You can buy it here and stream it on FACT Magazine:
