!K7 Preps Ewan Pearson and Cobblestone Jazz LPs
- Words: Fred Miketa
The Berlin-based !K7 imprint is responsible for releasing some of the most noteworthy dance records of 2007 thus far (namely, Joakim’s Monsters and Silly Songs and DJ Kicks: Hot Chip). Now, the cornerstone label is continuing one hell of a year with releases from pop’s remix master Ewan Pearson and improv outfit Cobblestone Jazz.
Pearson’s Piece Work is a two-disc collection of recent reworkings of artists’ tracks from Depeche Mode to Moby to Closer Musik. Though the production magnate just served up a very laudable mix for the Fabric Live series, Piece Work may surpass that, and become one of Pearson’s most sought-after collections to date. And given the fact that the studiophile has graced 58 records in six years, there’s little doubt that this long-player will be nothing short of stupendous.
Meanwhile, Vancouver-based trio Cobbletone Jazz has already established themselves as the quintessential molders of jazz-tech, releasing singles for Wagon Repair and Ititwhatitis. The Canadian band was also recently featured on Kompakt’s monumental Total 8 compilation, and shared wax with Troy Pierce on Cybotron’s recently released Clear Remix EP. 23 Seconds marks the trio’s first CD release (vinyl is available through Wagon repair), and documents the group’s freestyle talent with a bonus disc of live material. Lord only knows what !K7 has brewing for 2008.
Piece Work is out September 24, 2007 and 23 Seconds is out October 23, 2007 on !K7.
