DescriptionWith all those sets, tractors, technicians, software forums, updates and MP3 subscription discussions, wetend to forget about the nucleus of club music: record collectors. What we call techno, house, and so ontoday, was developed in Detroit and Chicago in an atmosphere of party, of mix tapes and of progressiveradio shows. Styles, songs, ideas were mixed up, blended, amalgamated and from lust, new lust arose.
DJ Lotti lives right in this atmosphere of record shelves, an endless source of love and inspiration to him.Calling himself THE SORRY ENTERTAINERS, he plays no, he celebrates music on the open platformsof Berlin club culture (like Wilde Renate, Bar25, 1000,). Soon he found himself in a spiral, a maelstrom ofideas and of trying out. He found some friends to produce his own songs with, which were already clearlydefined in his head, which was already playing in his ear. With producers and musicians M. RUX and RAZOHARA, hes now releasing The Sorry Entertainers Local Jet Set.
An incredibly warm and more than referential album, floating and swinging from actual club hits likeJeopardize or End Of Times to amazingly deep Moonshiner, based on the vocals of late blues and countrystar ROSCOE HOLCOMB (courtesy of Folkways/Smithsonian). In between, there are sounds of Hawaii andTokyo, from Berlin and India, from the forties and the future. At no time does this music get stuck in a genre,in a trend, but moves in all directions, in an untroubled and airy fashion.
Berlin-based singer RAZ OHARAs vocals add another ingredient to the recipe and blends beats and strings,backgrounds and feelings to floating yet touching songs. This might be New Age, as was the title of the prereleasedsingle, but its the kind of new age that indulges in the old age and kicks, no cross-legged nonsense.Accompanied by a beautiful cover by CARSTEN AERMES (kiosk royal) which manages the balancingact between twisted neo-romanticism and Russian/Italian futurism of the Twenties. The soul of images,the feeling of sound.
