Released 22nd February
Lehult 015 serves you class - A Liem & Eddie Ness faux-bangers, neatly packed in a four-tracker on home ground. Crazy groovers from start to finish that have their feet firmly rooted on the dancefloor, lined with the boys’ trademark hazy, slightly detached vibe. Liem & Eddie Ness have sunken into a natural groove, and all we want to do is relax and let it flow through us.

It’s not the fall that hurts, it’s when you hit the ground – that’s what „Failing Upwards“ is all about. On Lehult’s fourteenth release Lucky Charms breaks away from 4-to-the-floor territory to deliver a fun trip through skippy drum workouts and jazzy warmth. Spread out across the full A-Side is “Einbahnstraßen-Sound". Heard first on the Lehult Worldwide FM Special last year, this highly requested tune finally sees the light of day in all its trippy, warm, analogue glory. “Oase” takes things a notch deeper by layering lush synths, swarming melodies and ski field recordings over a laid back electro-groove. “Rex Dubius” translates the vibe of the first two tracks into a more straightforward, dubby groove - not without the skipping beats and the warm counterparts, though.

The Lehult Crew goes back to beach with this V.A. full of blistering sundowners. Inspired by utopian visions of northern holiday destination Sylt - Germany’s “White Isle” - the four tracks ooze a sense of lighthearted optimism. “Rave (Sylt TV)” is a photo-op of a track: A chilled bottle of rose at Buhne 16 or a long night at Rotes Kliff with girls in sequin dresses. “Refreshing Fruit, Tasty Fruit” paints a lighter picture of the same theme. Think a tasting tour of 15 different kinds of sparkling water. DJ Assam’s “Sandy” warms things up with distant laughter and swirly synths. But stay cozy, because a change of weather is always around the corner. “Blueberry Icetea” is closing things out with a hom-age to the jolly car-train that connects Sylt to the mainland - the only reasonable way to come and go!

Liem and Eddie Ness are back on home turf with a club oriented four-tracker, the “Metronic Disco Fever” EP. Four punchy, tempo-driven house tunes that stick together like glue. Produced entirely in their studio in Hamburg, these tracks have that analogue, spontaneous feel and pack some serious dance floor weight.

For our 10th release, we put together a ten track compilation featuring new material by us and our friends titled “Nie wieder Streit”. The four sides showcase some familiar Lehult sounds as well as some unexpected surprises: Original crew members Liem, Lucky Charmz, Eddie Ness, Johan Kaseta and DJ Assam are all on board with new material, while Matthias Reiling, A Trap Jr. & DJ Slyngshot, Rainboy and Epikur also join the party. For the special occasion we wanted to compile a collection aimed at the DJs that have been buying our records and supporting the little outlet we founded a couple of years back. LHLT10 is one of those versatile records that offers something for every situation, one that never leaves your bag. There’s chilled, intricate songs for the early and late hours on the dance floor, dark and vibey Jams for the dungeons, joyful and weird peak time stuff, and some straight up groove monsters – all on one release. Liem & Eddie join forces for the seemingly deteriorating, jumbling peak-time cut “Exodoros” while Liem’s other contribution, “Truly Super”, serves up sweaty basement magic. Lucky Charmz shows a unheard shade with his 150-BPM Kitch-Anthem “Trance Song Cover”, while Johan Kaseta’s opener “Venue Flieder” and Assam's floaty groover “Looking for Revenge” stay in line with their trademark fruity/meditative sound. Epikur, a project between Eddie Ness and his longtime partner in crime Kryptofauna, snatch their debut release with the club-ready, synth-laden groover “Speedrunner IV”, while Tony Rainwater’s introduces his “Rainboy” Project, gazing at his shoes on New-Wave-Ballad “Heaven Fallen on Heaven Flesh”. Last but not least, Mathias Reiling – one-half of Session Victim and Giegling regular – and Offenbach’s A Trap Jr. & DJ Slyngshot contribute to the deeper end of this release with their respective tracks “Give and Take”, an introvert, jazzy percussion trip, and “Lonely Is The Night”, an ever out of touch, slowly rising whirlwind.

It’s a pleasure to introduce Tony Rainwater — undoubtedly the most productive and creative savage we’ve come across recently. See usually we don’t do this, Lehult is a crew affair, but this guy left us no choice. Being a music enthusiast, DJ and dancer for a long time, Tony has only most recently picked up producing his own music, yet at a stunning rate: When we first asked him for a demo — three months after he started producing — he swiftly dropped us a set of twenty-five tracks, another set of fifty more soon followed. His productions are straight rough edged, no-prisoners-taken Jams, combining samples from the most far-flung corners of his eclectic music collection. His magical patchwork wild style is on full display on his debut “Rockberry Jam” EP for Lehult. The A-Side takes us through the lighter side of his repertoire with the title tracks slow building house groove, some dizzy medieval monk grooves on “To All The World” and seductive R&B on “Lay It On The Line”. On the flip “Operalight” irresistible groove and “Black Dream Flowers” provide some darker moments, before “Alone” closes on a soft note. The Vinyl version includes an extra goodie after the runout’s. Tony is now a fixed member of the crew already and we’re proud to have him and his crazy energy on the team. This won’t be the last you’ll hear of him.

Eddie Ness and Liem join forces once more to bring you LHLT007. The “Hardcore Will Never Dry"-EP has the two producers embarking on a journey into deep machine funk and swelling subterranean soundscapes, mass tailored for sweaty clubs. All produced in their shared hardware-heaven of a studio the tracks are full of intriguing rough edges and charming imperfections, equipping the tracks with a deep textured and evolving character. Opener “Holy Grail” guides us into a groove vacuum: Pairing swirling ping-pong-delays with sharp-edged airy hi-hat’s and a sturdy pad, it sets the tone of the EP: Hazy blips and lazy Grooves! Suddenly echoed stabs pop up out of nowhere while trippy delay’s dislocate all other sounds. Just as you think everything is falling apart “Holy Grail” catches itself: It joyrides the thin line between straight balance and stumbling off-beats in the groove vacuum. “JRP” seduces us to go even deeper into the groove vacuum. While heavy tribal shakers and drums locate us in the heart of a sizzling tropical jungle, merciless bass stabs and swift noise burst take us back to outer space. “JRP” is both gravity and anti-gravity. Always building up tension and teasing, yet never offering closure and cheap satisfaction to it’s captivated listeners, “JPR” is a amazing club track for entranced after-hour crowds. Closing track “Kevintin Melbourne Shuffle” is what you hoped Melbourne Shuffle would sound like when you first heard the name: Backed by lustfully popping bubble sounds, it’s highly infectious shuffle groove steals the show, while sweet filtered steel drums melodies echo from a distant plant, reminiscing the tropical vibes of their collaborations on LHLT002. “Kevintin” is a soft lullaby rounding up this infectious collection of hardware driven tracks. One for the groove, one for the club and one for the chill!
