Release Date: 11th June 2021
In 2019, after having spent the entire year living in a recording studio somewhere in the Cotswolds, slowly adapting to the new pace of life, Norwegian-Algerian producer Karima F took a break from walking aimlessly between the rolling hills to make an EP. Recorded in December 2019, «Fief Fef» is a succulent sandwich of Karima F’s library of musical tastes: bass, braindance, cheesy chords, UK funky, breaks, pig-squealing modular bursts, discarded ideas, idleness and sub bass-frequencies.
«Sheer Rage» was recently played by Avalon Emerson on her BBC Radio 1 residency, while «Crab Ride» was included in Ben UFO’s guest mix for Sherelle's instalment of the same BBC Radio 1 show.
«Fief Fef», the fifth release on Schloss, is mixed and mastered by Matt Karmil. The cover is a section of the painting «ICE GIRLS» (2020) by Schloss-co-founder Ida Ekblad, and design is by Richard Øiestad.

The fourth release on Schloss Records comes from British multi-instrumentalist and polyrhythmic wizard A Psychic Yes (Timothy Crombie). While most of us are even confused as to where to place a hi-hat, Crombie carefully and effortlessly arranges a bouquet of bleepy bloops, melodic U-turns and chaotic ideas, welding together a beautiful soundscape that makes perfect sense. Or as one friend described it: “his music tastes like strawberries”. A Psychic Yes has previously released music on Kalahari Oyster Cult and Tech Startup. The B-side features a lush remix from Bristolian DJ and producer Hodge. Artwork, as always, by Schloss co-founder Ida Ekblad. That Swamp Feeling is mastered by Matt Karmil.
