PIV Records boss Prunk drops new “Le Funk” LP

Artist: Prunk 
Title: Le Funk
Record Label: PIV Records
Release Date: 27th January 2022
1) Mushroom Jazz
2) Friday Night feat. Mr V
3) New Genesis
4) Incredible (with Ruze)
5) Story Of House feat. Jovonn (with M-High)
6) French Toast
7) Drive (with Dennis Quin)
8) Back In The Dark (Prunk Remix) (with DJ Deep)
9) Incredible (Club Mix) (with Ruze)
Influential contemporary house tastemaker Prunk is to serve-up his new album Le Funk on his own PIV Records in 2023. The nine track record showcases his mastery of sublime and seductive sounds from across the house spectrum.
Dutchman Prunk has slowly but surely become a real underground mainstay. He has built a fine collective of talents on his own label and spearheaded a new take on house music that is all about real feelings and effortless grooves. His standout solo and collaborative material has seen releases via the likes of Djebali, Key Records, Ewax and of course PIV, while he has headlined clubs and festivals all over the world. Next to this his own often sold out label showcases that have taken place everywhere from fabric (London) to Shelter (Amsterdam) vis The BPM Festival.
Now he makes his most completed coherent statement yet with his adventurous new album Le Funk. It is a distillation of all his influences and many years of house history with plenty of his own fresh signature touches.
Opener Mushroom Jazz is a stylish downtempo cut with lush lounge chords that immediately soothes the soul. Friday Night features Mr V and picks up the pace with the sort of vibey and dynamic house that Prunk has made his name with. The chords are balmy and bring real musical warmth while New Genesis pumps the party with well-swung drums and knotted bass under steamy and whispered female vocals.
Prunk & Ruze combine to great effect on Incredible, a brilliantly fresh and contemporary cut with seductive and bouncy drum loops and future facing cosmic synths. Prunk & M-High’s Story Of House (ft. Jovonn) is defined by its brilliant vibraphone melodies which recall the great Roy Ayers. They stay busy over soulful house grooves and after Prunk’s delightful, pad-laced deep house cut French Toast comes Drive with Dennis Quin. It’s a carefree house cut with neat jazz keys and steamy sax lines that bring the good times. Prunk’s driving remix of Jovonn & DJ Deep’s Back In the Dark is another track awash with magic synth work and heartfelt chords before a crisp club mix of Incredible closes the album down in style.
This is a timeless exploration of house music that manages to be as emotive and heartfelt as it does dynamic on the dance floor.
Says Prunk – “This album is a tribute to my entire music career. My first DJ name was ‘Prunk Le Funk’ mainly because I only played funky house in the early years. ‘Le Funk’ has been removed from my entire dj name because I didn’t want to be connected to just 1 genre. With this album I want to show that there is still enough ‘Funk’ in Prunk with a nod to the past.
My album really had to be a house album and I wanted to do this with a warm, soulful, funky sound. I have tried to make this album with young and old talent. One of my dreams was to make a track with house legend Jovonn and I succeeded because he did the vocals of ‘Story of House’. In the vocals he pays attention to how house originated with an important lesson for the new generation. In addition, I was also allowed to remix one of my favourite records of his called ‘Back in the Dark’, a classic together with DJ Deep, which can only be found on the vinyl of my album.
I also collaborated with another house legend Mr V. This track is a bit deeper with a warm disco bassline called ‘Friday Night’, of course with the vocals of the man himself.
Besides these legends I have made music with the talented Ruze, Dennis Quin and M-High. All 3 had a great year musically last year and that’s why I think it’s great that they’re also on my album.
I hope to not only appeal to DJs with my album, but also to house lovers because this album was made with a lot of love. I hope you enjoy it ‘for the love of house music’.”

BNR kicks off 2023 by making good on a past promise. “Love & Validation,” BOYS NOIZE and KELSEY LU‘s sex-paced industrial ballad, never received an uptempo club treatment – until now. The “Love & Validation Remixes” EP offers three new flavors of elevated atmosphere, syrupy vocals, and body-tuned rhythms from ELAXMARCEL DETTMANN, and the elusive JACKSON.


Order Link

The recording of “Love & Validation” was an international affair, written and recorded in LA where Lu is based. The remix EP, however, begins with a double dose of Berlin courtesy of MARCEL DETTMANN, a central figure in the city’s Berghain era.  DETTMANN keeps the vocals and atmospheric refrain intact but surgically implants a thumping techno backbone so loosely-quantized it’s almost tribal. The new rhythm and arrangement are transformative, as if a track meant for (ahem) horizontal listening suddenly stood up vertically, taking it from the bedroom to the big room.

Artist(s): Boys Noize, Kelsey Lu

Title: Love & Validation Remixes

Record Label: Boysnoize Records

Cat.Number: BNR224

Release Date: 20th January 2023


1) Love & Validation (Marcel Dettmann Remix)

2) Love & Validation (Jackson Remix)

3 ) Love & Validation (Elax Remix)

Marco Faraone x Stella Bossi deliver a new single “3 DAYS AWAKE” on FILTH ON ACID 

Follow Marco Faraone on Soundcloud / Instagram / Facebook

Follow Stella Bossi on Soundcloud / Instagram / Facebook



Techno mavens Marco Faraone and Stella Bossi have officially joined forces, coming together for the formidable techno whomper, ‘3 DAYS AWAKE’. Inspired by the demanding life of a globally touring DJ, the new release checks all the boxes for an unadulterated rave weapon, from its infectious hook and stomping beat to its dynamic percussion and deep, percolating acid synths. A track that’s guaranteed to shift your reality, ‘3 DAYS AWAKE’ is set for a December 16release on Reinier Zonneveld’s very own Filth on Acid.

Sometimes when two people meet, there’s simply a click. This is exactly what happened when Marco Faraone and Stella Bossi casually met during their recent South American tours. Both artists were performing in Santiago de Chile that weekend and after a long day spent hanging around and drinking salty beer, the idea of making a track together just seemed like the thing to do. It wasn’t long before a heartpounding beat fell into place, but it was clear that something was missing. A few days later, Marco wanted to add a vocal but Stella mentioned that the days touring were heavy, she literally was awake for 3 days– Friday, Saturday, Sunday, nonstop! Marco fell in love with this phrase and asked Stella to record it by phone in the hotel. A hook was born. Both fell in love with the idea and after exporting that voicenote into Ableton, they decided to work it into their track, combining Marco’s voice with Stella’s unmistakable recording. The result was absolutely amazing, the perfect repetitive hook and an experience that many clubbers around the world can relate to. This is a common language directed to ravers and music lovers. Now, can you be “3 DAYS AWAKE?”

It’s been an incredible year for the Italian-born, Barcelona-based Marco Faraone, including headlining gigs at Amnesiain Ibiza, as well as releases on his own label UNCAGE, Defected, We Are The Brave, and now the infamously hard-hitting Filth On Acid. Playing the perfect musical counterpart to Marco Faraone on this release is the Berlin-based Stella Bossi, who has been just as on form this year. Her high impact techno has built a reputation for wowing crowds all round the world and her The Beat Must Fuck label continues to make big move after big move.

Witness two techno titans joining forces for the turbulent Filth on Acid single ‘3 DAYS AWAKE’. Driven by bold, raw percussion and an eerily dark vocal sample, this is the perfect soundtrack for any weekend– from start to finish.

Find the new release out via Reinier Zonneveld’s Filth on Acid on December 16.

Artist(s): Marco Faraone, Stella Bossi
Record Label: Filth On Acid
Cat.Number: FOA122
Release Date: 16th December 2022 [Beatport (2 weeks)], 30th December 2022 (all other download stores)

Over the last two decades, Caprices has put Crans-Montana back on the map. It was once hugely popular in the 70s and 80s but fell out of fashion until Caprices introduced it to a new generation.

As such there are many things that stand Caprices apart, from breathtaking panoramic views across the Alps to next level audio-visual technology, luxury gastronomic experiences, an eco-museum, mountain activities, to multiple spa and wellness centres. For adrenaline junkies there are 140 km of pistes for skiing and snowboarding, a next level snowpark, husky sledding and so much more.

For this special anniversary edition there will be five stages split across day and night, two by day and three by night. Each stage has its own unique theme with fantastically realised producing and added performing arts elements such as dancers, actors, audiovisuals and art installations that brings the whole magical experience to life.

By day there is the world renowned Modernity Stage, an iconic glasshouse at 2,200m up the Swiss Alps that will welcome big name DJs for some unforgettable musical memories. The Club stage, meanwhile, is a concrete stage attached to the Modernity Stage with a glass wall overlooking the Alps and soundtracked by some fresh talents from around the world.

By night, The Moon Stage comes alive. It has been an integral part of Caprices festival from the early years and has famously cutting edge audiovisual production that adds an extra dimension to every single set. Then comes the Forest Stage, a forest themed 2000-capacity stage which will transport partygoers deep into alpine forests. Last but not least is the Dome Stage with another high-level audio visual experience and classy underground sounds.

This year, Weekend One (April 7-9th) welcomes Jamie XX, Fatboy Slim, Black Coffee, Artbat, Monolink (live), Adriatique, DJ Tennis, Blond:ish, Who Made Who (live), 8Kays, Amine K, Brina Knauss, Fiona Kraft, Layla Benitez, Magda, Modal Tune (Guti b2b Sarkisi live), Themba and Yokoo.

Weekend Two (April 14-16th) brings Jeff Mills, Loco Dice b2b Seth Troxler, Zip, Luciano b2b Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Arapu b2b Gescu, Archie Hamilton, Cobblestone Jazz (live), Djerry C, East End Dubs, Janeret, Manda Moor, Miroloja, O.Bee b2b Tomas Station, Raresh, Sonja Moonear plus a special guest TBA.

Stay tuned for further artist announcements.

This year Caprices offers hotel packages as well as additional services and activities of the region for the ones who are seeking to discover Crans-Montana. There are many more acts to come with a surprise guest on Saturday night set to be a real highlight.

The evocative flow of Belgian rapper Hamza also takes centre stage, following his hit of summer 2022, ‘Fade Up’.

With this first salvo of artists, Les Plages Électroniques again offers great headliners, cutting-edge artists, French rap stars, electronic music titans, live and DJ sets, all in the unique setting of the Palais des Festival in Cannes.

“We are going to enlarge the space where the festival is located by adding a new outdoor stage to be able to welcome even more festival-goers in the best possible conditions. We are also working on setting up a new cool space indoors to be able to enjoy the event without suffering from the high heat. With the desire to also encourage the younger generations of artists, we are renewing the Riffx competition to select an emerging talent who will play during the 2023 edition of Les Plages Électroniques. As you will have understood, this 2023 edition will take up all the ingredients that make the festival a success, but by taking everything a notch higher!” say Matthieu Corosine and Benoit Géli, founders of Les Plages Électroniques.

The Prodigy, Skrillex, CamelPhat, Keinemusik, Hot Since 82 and more announced for EXIT Festival 2023

The first 23 names for EXIT Festival 2023 can be revealed today and they include the legendary return of the most influential electro-punk band of all time, The Prodigy, with tens more to come in the next few months.

After a multi-year break, the band are to return to EXIT, and it’s a place they have a rich history and deep connection with the Serbian audience. It is also an event they have said is their favourite to play in all the world so you can expect this date to be a real highlight of their comeback international tour, as the band’s founder Liam Howlett explains: “EXIT is our favourite festival! We were there (in Serbia) when a lot of sh*t went down. They hold us in their hearts as a special bend, and we love the people there.”

The EXIT 2023 programme runs from July 6th – 9th at the famous Petrovaradin Fortress and it will be headlined by electronic music revolutionary Skrillex, rock sensation Viagra Boys, the Keinemusik collective as well as CamelPhat, Hot Since 82, Vintage Culture and Indira Paganotto. The performances of The Toasters, Cockney Rejects, Human Rias, Mortal Kombat, Zoe Kida and many others have also been confirmed. A total of 23 names are ready to take their place in the EXIT Universe by coming to four of Exit’s favourite stages – Main Stage, mts Dance Arena, Visa Fusion and Explosive for this fantastic four day celebration.

The Prodigy has been a leading force in the global electronic scene for decades. Songs like “Firestarter,“ ”Breathe,(which premiered in Belgrade) Smack My Bitch Up,“ “Voodoo People,“ “No Good (Start The Dance),“ “Out Of Space, and Everybody In The Place are not only the huge part of musical history, but have been integral to the upbringing of generations around the world for the past 30 years. Their immense popularity in the region is evidenced by breaking the Main Stage attendance records at each of their performances, which are expected to be repeated next  year. Their 1995 concert in Belgrade’s Pionir Hall left an indelible mark on Serbian society after the wars and sanctions, reconnecting young people with the world and providing them with a sense of freedom, rebellion, and revolution through music. This connection was deepened at the EXIT festival from their first performance in 2007 through the 2009 edition, to 2013 and 2016. The members of the most influential electro band of all time showed how much they loved the local audience when they proudly declared that EXIT is their favourite festival and that they love the Serbian people!

The Prodigy: EXIT is our favorite festival!

Many thought, including the band itself, that The Prodigy would stop performing after the tragedy, but we knew this wouldn’t be the case. The comeback concerts in London showed that the fire in them burns stronger than ever, and the iconic band’s reunion with its favourite, EXIT audience, will surely be the most emotional yet. In July, we will witness a moment of true music history, which will reach its highest point with a special laser projection of Keith Flint” said the founder and CEO of the EXIT festival, Dušan Kovačević.

Skrillex, the American producer and DJ who has wild memories of Exit, will also return to the Petrovaradin fortress. After his first performance at the Main Stage in 2014, which is remembered as one of the greatest in the history of Exit, he was so delighted by the atmosphere that he decided to cancel his other performances and stay until the end of the festival. This musical innovator has eight Grammy Awards, which is a record in the electronic music scene. Releases such as My Name Is Skrillex,” “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites, Recess, and collaborations with the biggest global stars like Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber and Diplo, Ellie Goulding, and J Balvin have redefined the entire genre. Next July, Skrillex returns to the Petrovaradin Fortress in full force and with a minimum of two more albums announced.

Viagra Boys and their eccentric frontman Sebastian Murphy, professional jazz musicians and hardcore veterans from Stockholm, are coming to Serbia for the first time, straight to Exit’s Main Stage! Their music is strongly based on the elements of parody and satire, presented at their very first EP, Consistency of Energy, followed by their debut album Street Worms, and last year’s LP Welfare Jazz. Scottish producer/DJ duo LF System is also coming to the EXIT Festival’s Main stage – these hitmakers are known for their refreshing soul sound, topping the UK Singles Chart and earning a platinum record with their single Afraid to Feel.

Keinemusik, CamelPhat, Hot Since 82, Vintage Culture and Indira Paganotto Coming to the Dance Arena!

The DJ and producer crew Keinemusik consists of &ME, Rampa and Adam Port, who have made this project one of the world’s leading house attractions. They affirmed their status at this year’s Burning Man and are coming to Serbia for the first time. The guys from the duo CamelPhat boast sold-out performances at Wembley and Hydra Arena, their own night at the Creamfields festival in the impressive Steal Yard Arena, and a Grammy nomination, and they are also coming to EXIT for the first time, at the peak of their popularity. Their nearly 20-year-long career has had many essential chapters, including the global hit Cola, a collaboration with ARTBAT on the track For A Feeling, and the latest single The Sign, created in collaboration with Tale Of Us, which reached the #1 spot on the Beatport chart. Hot Since 82 brings everything fans of house, deep house, and tech house could wish for. The loyal Dance Arena audience is perfectly aware of the kind of atmosphere he can create and that critics rightly describe his music as “the most sophisticated in the UK”.

Vintage Culture made his big breakthrough on the global electronic scene with covers of iconic songs like Another Brick in the Wall and Blue Monday. In the meantime, many of his releases have gone platinum and reached the top of the Billboard, Spotify, and Beatport charts. He recently presented a new single,Commotion, in collaboration with the legendary Maxi Jazz. Many electronic music fans still haven’t had time to fully process the masterful closing of the No Sleep Festival and Exit’s No Sleep Novi Sad Stage, both marked by Indira Paganotto’s recognisable psytechno style. She has just released a new EP, Lions of God, with each and every one of its tracks reaching the top of the Beatport chart. The line-up also includes Human Rias, who became the only performer in history to both open and close the mts Dance Arena last year! First name of Pachamama stage is local Sarasvati Druna Band.

They have over 7,000 live performances under their belts, while Mojo Magazineincluded them among the most influential ska bands of all time.
