CdV P080 Kassem Mosse special

Gunnar Wendel aka Kassem Mosse has always been an understated figure in electronic music. He has been quietly leading the line for years, being one of the pioneers who ushered in the recent wave of dirty sounding house long before it was fashionable. But his sound has always been distinct, combining a nonchalant and languid pace with exquisite arrangements and a lot of subtle percussive detail that recedes deep into the mix. This week on Cabeza de Vaca and Scanner FM we explore his new untitled album on Workshop and his back catalogue as well as some of his peers who also adopt uncommon house forms.

 

CdV P080: Especial de Kassem Mosse

 

Gunnar Wendel alias Kassem Mosse siempre ha sido una figura discreta en la música electrónica. Él ha estado llevando la línea en silencio por años, siendo uno de los pioneros que marcó el comienzo de la reciente ola de house con un sonido sucio antes de que estuviera de moda. Pero su sonido siempre ha sido distinta, combinando un ritmo indolente y lánguida con arreglos exquisitos y un montón de detalles de percusión sutil que se aleja de profundidad en la mezcla. Esta semana en Cabeza de Vaca y Scanner FM exploramos su nuevo disco sin título en el sello Workshop y su discografía y además algunos de sus compañeros que también adoptan formas poco comunes en house.

This week on Cabeza de Vaca and Scanner FM we delve deeply into the labels signature sound which blends dreamy bedroom pop with colourful rhythms and run through the current roster of artists which always features a host of new and promising names.

P032: Sex special

It may be time to send in your tax return, but there’s only one thing on our minds at Cabeza de Vaca and Scanner FM: sex. This week we pay tribute to the second best thing in the world after tax havens, dividends and creative accounting. Starting seductively with the Modernist, we come all too quickly to the happy finish of Terre Thaemlitz with plenty of bump and grind on the way courtesy of several memorable 12 inches from the archives.
