SIS feat. Benjamin Frnkln "The Get Down"
SIS is up next up on Mobilee with The Get Down feat. Benjamin Frnkln. After Kevin Yost´s recent debut release, SIS is the second new signing on the label since Anja’s departure. Both artists have demonstrated great versatility and continue to impress with state of the art instrumentation and poignant lyrics.
The title track kicks off with an energetic balearic beat, a chanting vocal comes in closely followed by a hard-hitting, and very welcome bassline. Sounds reminiscent of an 80’s sci-fi movie are littered throughout this extended track leading way to a breakdown midway that upholds suspense, making way to a superb agglomeration of pleasing audio.
Track two, The Module, begins with a steady introduction, complete with more space-age sounds, opens up to a spoken word verse about modern technology and “the power of music”. A drum roll makes way to an intensified kick, the vocals continue to inspire as the beat rolls out into yet another superb example of the artist’s ability to turn a cluster of distinct tones into a dancefloor filler.
Following the success of his previous release on Crosstown Rebels, Cocolino Records founder SIS has been busy in the studio most recently producing a mix for the ever popular It’s all about the Music radio show. Benjamin Frnkln, well known for his incredible vocal abilities, most recently featured on Butch’s Highbeams on Hot Creations back in 2013.
mobilee records launched in 2005 and quickly established itself as one of the brightest new stars within Berlin’s glittering galaxy of electronic music labels, producers and DJs. Founded and owned by Anja Schneider and Ralf Kollmann, the label boasts a sound that is simultaneously familiar and innovative. Rooted in the classic structures of house and techno, mobilee has harnessed the triple threat approach: its records reference vintage dancefloor minimalism, engage with like-minded contemporaries, and suggest surprising new directions for familiar forms.
mobilee celebrated its fifth year in 2010, and marked the milestone with a tour that crossed all six continents. The anniversary not only highlighted five successful years of the label, but served as a testament to the vision, passion, and love of music that continues to drive the extended mobilee team in all that they do, and all that will come.
With a focus on label showcases, such as the annual drawcard event at Barcelona’s Hotel Silken Diagonal during Sonar, mobilee is committed to developing its roster—the core of whom are booked and managed by the label itself. The famed Sonar rooftop parties that have featured all-star casts of mobilee artists and friends are just one example of the unique, forward-thinking philosophy of mobilee, and its attendant expansion as a music and entertainment enterprise.
In addition to Anja Schneider, mobilee's core artists include Sebo K, Pan-Pot, Rodriguez Jr., And.Id, Ralf Kollmann, Miss Jools, Dan Curtin, Marcin Czubala, Martin Landsky, Ray Okpara, Christian Smith, Slam and their extensive release catalogue includes productions from artists such as Daniel Stefanik, Maya Jane Coles, Re.You, Safeword, Miss Kittin, Vincenzo and many more.
