KANN celebrates a decade of music with a showcase tour and compilation

2018-KANN-X-GOOD-TIMES-V03 (4)Leipzig label KANN celebrate a decade of music with a showcase tour and an extended Family Horror compilation. To mark the milestone they call on the likes of Underspreche, Matt Karmil, Axel Boman, Art Alfie and Lawrence and the label’s core artists to curate a compilation that is their most consequential endeavour to date. KANN will then be picking up sticks for a series of showcases around Europe with shows in Germany, Romania, Austria and Czech Republic, culminating with a label showcase at the much loved festival Nachtdigital where KANN will take over the tent on the Saturday night.

‘Family Horror X’ is an extensive 15 tracks compilation, where the Leipzig label reflects on an intense and impassioned decade. KANN asked close friends and long time idols to play their part to the full to complete the third edition of the label’s Family Horror compilation series. The outcome is a clear snapshot of the musical inclinations of the three label founders, Sevensol & Map.ache (aka Manamana) and Bender, encapsulating an idiosyncratic, modern house sound that demands an emotional response.

Standout moments include Innere Tueren and Eau Thermale, hitting deep from the off with dancefloor stunners ‘Eden’ and ‘Koburger Brücke’. Underspreche and Perm provide some of the techno muscle with ‘Against (Dub)’ and ‘HEGDL’ and the two contributions from the KANN bosses, ‘Malekula’ and ‘Thank U Again’, are driving cuts, fueled by deep grooves and broken celestials. Art Alfie & Axel Boman team up on the dusty, funk-indebted groover ‘Rätt Sida Om Cirkus’. Mary Yalex, a recent addition to the KANN family, opens the gates to a world of tranquility on ‘Turquoise’ and Philipp Matalla’s ‘Island Jam’ is a 10 minute tripped out stroll through tropical groves.

The compilation comes rounded off by a booklet of photographs from Ria aka Lux which just like the music captures some of the beautiful ‘Good Times’ from this very special period, this time on paper.

A series of showcases will be taking the label and its artist around Europe with shows in Germany, Romania, Austria and Czech Republic, culminating with a label showcase at the much loved festival Nachtdigital where KANN will take over the tent on the Saturday night with Bender, cmd q, Map.ache, Mary Yalex, Polo, Sevensol and Underspreche all scheduled to perform.
