2000 And One’s distinguished abode for all things Tech House 100% Pure greet familiar underground mongers Pleasurekraft, Jaceo and Vedic for the release of an infectious new two-track EP. While title track ‘American Hustle’ embraces the rhythmic properties that have excelled their international appeal alongside an artillery of deep bass play, ‘Skin Song of Skull Island’ is the definitive all-around offering of funk induced club stylings that tops yet another strong package from the unpretentious imprint.

Out today on Beatport.


Back on remix duty after taking Nervo’s ‘You’re Gonna Love Again‘ through the motions of gritty Tech House, cross-nation duo Pleasurekraft are on hand with a groovy number of ‘Slipknot’, a track off of Tube & Berger’s recent ‘Introlution’ album.

Ditching the straight up Tech House vibes that the duo have encompassed over the years, their ‘Once Upon A Time In The West’ remix on ‘Slipknot’ emphasises the comfortable club stylings of the original with a deep canvas of heavy melodic progressions and hypnotic rhythm. Engaging in the atmospherics of the infamous wild-western vibe, Pleasurekraft add guitar rumbles to a bed of grumbling synth rolls and gruff low-end riffage for a take that plays aptly out to its title with soothing substance.

Poised at two very different ends of the vast Electronic music spectrum, few could have comprehended seeing Melodic Aussie sisters Nervo knocking boots with the eccentric cross-nation Tech House triumphs of Pleasurekraft. But amid the prior’s vast sweep of radio-friendly club cuts and affinity for tech-house, the Swedish/American duo turn their more underground leaning minds to their EMI chart-pleaser ‘Your Gonna Love Again’.

Amid the mechanically disturbed top line that pervades their ‘Happily Never After’ remix, Pleasurekraft’s subtle melodic builds weave seamlessly into an affirmative romp of steady beasts and intricately layered lead work. In a far grittier extension of Nervo’s well-groomed club manoeuvres, Pleasurekraft prove that amid the alleged EDM explosion there need not be a cap on creative Electronic offerings.

Nervo – You’re Gonna Love Again (Pleasurekraft ‘Happily Never After’ Remix)

Words by Dan Carter

Still waving the flag for unpretentious music from outside the more pretentious avenues of Electronic music, mixed-race underground martyrs Pleasurekraft and Budapest’s Belocca receive a formative remix from Tube & Berger for their latest offering on Coyu’s Suara imprint.

In one of their deepest offerings to date, the German Tech mongers explore a deep canvas of heavy melodic progressions and hypnotic rhythmic endeavours to formally excavate this groovy number from its tetchier roots. Still cloaked in the originals sample work and boasting an exuberant flare of attitude, the distinct stamina of Tube & Berger’s take on ‘Murdered Out’ is the perfect carry-on of their previous original landmark ‘Soulgood’ earlier this year.

Pleasurekraft & Belocca – Murdered Out (Tube & Berger Remix)

Words by Dan Carter

From last year’s distinct Tarantula hit to the quite recent remix of Heroes Of The Night by techno legend Umek and Christan Cambas, Swedish-American duo Pleasurekraft has succeeded in becoming two of the most outstanding icons of the modern-day tech scene. Kicking off the release of their 2011 challenger named Carny in April and their take on Sneaky Sound System’s We Love in August, Pleasurekraft present us another trademark of their well-reputed signature sound and iconic way of filtering vocals. Many words could be suitable for describing this highly rated tech-house pair and inimitable might just be the one actually justifying their top submissions to the scene. In times where sentimentality and generosity seem to be two key words for clubland, their eagerly-awaited remix of Porcelain Black and Lil Wayne’s This Is What Rock N Roll Looks Like is now given away for free!

Kalle Rönngårdh and Kaveh Soroush who make up Pleasurekraft return to remix duty after the recent cut on Sneaky Sound System’s We Love. Still thriving from the success of their 2010 hit, Tarantula, and this year’s follow-up, entitled Carny, the Swedish-American duo take on Heroes Of The Night – the newest single from Slovenian tech and techno legend Umek and Athens-based Christian Cambas – for a signature belter to add to their already top notch discography. Coming off remix duties of Antidote and the not yet released one on This Is What Rock N Roll Looks Like, Pleasurekraft make their second appearance on the 1605 label. Out now is a ravishing blend of filtered vocal parts, chunky and systematic beats with a touch of exotic, a mysterious and near to Deadmau5-sounding break-down, a solid vocal verse and their distinguished array of sounds to come together in unison.

Enacting their unprecedented trademark blend of groovy sounds and their way of playing around with vocal parts, the Swedish-American Pleasurekraft duo are out with a new remix on their own Kraftek label, following the pair’s remix to Antidote. Taking on Iran-stationed tech-house and techno producer Namito, the men behind some of the most revolutionary offerings of the tech-house scene thus far, Pleasurekraft, give Of Mice & Hares an outright rework. As they also prepare to make their second ever appearance on Umek’s 1605 label with the remix to Heroes Of The Night, the duo take use of an exotic guitar riff, clangerous xylophone chords and an overall soothing feel to the latest work from the hands of Kalle Rönngårdh and Kaveh Soroush.

The Pleasurekraft to ‘Of Mice & Hares’ is out now via Kraftek.

Pleasurekraft pulls up the notch to the highest level by releasing another high-end offering of theirs – a take on Sneaky Sound System’s We Love single. Their vibrant submission to tech house over the past year has been a nothing, if not a radical rise of great success as last year’s Tarantula release is still going strong on the global charts. This year’s catchy follow-up single, Carny, has further created an imminently positive vibe surrounding the Swedish-American duo and as they have just presented new remixes of Antidote and This Is What Rock N Roll Looks Like, the duo has become an inimitable DJ and production outfit. Their newest making is now released on Modular Recordings.
