LP version. Munk is the project of Gomma label-founder Mathias Modica ("Germany's most interesting electronic music label" -NME). Munk is best-known for his collaborations with Rebolledo from Pachanga Boys (Surf Smurf), James Murphy's LCD Soundsystem (Kick Out the Chairs), Asia Argento (Live Fast Die Old) and club-hits like "Down in L.A." and "La Musica." He co-produced the albums of Gomma bands WhoMadeWho and Moullinex. There is already a big buzz around Munk right now: The pre-single "Southern Moon" went to the top of the Beatport house charts. DJs such as Todd Terje, Shit Robot, Tensnake and Disclosure are playing it. Also "Happiness Juice" (and it's superb video) is all over the blogs right now. Munk's latest remix of Lana Del Rey's "West Coast" went to No. 1 on the Hype Machine after it's release in June 2014 and is one of the most blogged remixes of this summer. The album Chanson 3000 is the fourth Munk album. It was recorded in Berlin, where Mathias and his new vocalists live. As usual, Mathias' music doesn't fit into any categories. It's a mixture of '90s electronica and house with new wave, '70's jazz-funk, indie-disco and his love for songwriters like Burt Bacharach, Quincy Jones, and Trevor Horn. Mathias is a classically-trained musician. His dad (a composer of contemporary classical music) taught him to play instruments since the age of five. That's why Modica's way of producing is so different: he mixes "real" instruments (he plays piano, synthesizers, bass, saxophone, guitars, drums) and new digital techniques. He also has this special ability to write melancholic melodies and harmonic structures that are unusual to electronic music. That's probably why so many names have been invented to describe the Munk sound: outsider house, digital soul, deep disco - but maybe you can put it the way a German writer did: Munk sounds like you put Metronomy, Disclosure and Nicolas Jaar in a mixer and added some great soul voices. The album was mixed and mastered by Rob Rox (Banks) and Mark Ralph (Daniel Avery, Franz Ferdinand).
