Resident Advisor reviews Uncanny Vacation

Resident Advisor reviews Uncanny Vacation

What Resident Advisor thinks about the Uncanny Vacation-record. “For the EP, the labels called upon a mix of contributors old and new. First up is UK dance veteran DMX Krew with “Astro Logical,” a propulsive cosmic electro track that flits and fizzes. Sandrow M’s live version of “Prayervan,” which first came out on Uncanny Valley...

Uncanny Vacation-review by Juno

Sweet little review by Juno about the Uncanny Vacation-record. Let’s go on a bus trip. “While the title evokes images of the Uncanny Valley crew getting up to sitcom-style scrapes while bumbling around Germany in a rickety old bus, there’s an altogether simpler explanation for the Uncanny Vacation tag. Basically, it’s a hook-up between the Dresden label...

Total Sellout review by Das Filter (in German)

Here’s a wonderful (German) “Total Sellout”-review by Das Filter. “Cuthead ist viel mehr MPC-Beatmaker als House-Produzent. Darüber legen die alten zwischen 2006 und 2010 veröffentlichten Stücke Zeugnis ab. Die besten befinden sich auf „Total Sellout“, erstmalig auf Vinyl und nicht nur mehr digital. Damals waren eben andere Dinge wichtig und Vinyl war eh nicht Open-Air-kompatibel…”...

Over at hhv-mag.net Cuthead listed ten of his all time faves. It’s a really interesting read if you are able to read German “Wenig trennt Hip Hop von House, Crossover-Ansätze sind trotzdem selten zu finden. Cuthead jedoch macht die Ausnahme und er macht sie gut. Angefangen hat für Robert Arnold jedoch alles mit Hip Hop,...

Cuthead Review by De:Bug

Review machine Sascha Kösch wrote a nice piece about “Total Sellout” over at the De:Bug-Website. Read it here. “Jeder Track ein Fest für alle die Musik lieben, wenn sie ein Quirl aus Cut-Ups, zerstückelten Erinnerungen und Schmetterlingen voller launischer Gefühle ist, wenn sie Dinge zusammenbringt, die nur so zusammengehören, eigentlich aber nichts miteinander zu tun...

Could R$N reveal the secrets behind the genius of German beats producer Cuthead in only five questions? Due to popular demand the genre-skipping Dresden local is re-releasing 18 tracks he made between 2006-2010 as new album “Total Sellout” but his new baby has not clearly read the PR schedule! Journalistic ability tested to the max,...

Total Sellout Review by HHV mag

Sachsens most wanted and blunted lässt den totalen Ausverkauf beginnen. Zu erwerben gibt es vormals als Gratis-Download erhältliches Material. Frisch auf Vinyl und Tape gebannt selbstredend, sogar notorische NostalgikerInnen können dieser Killer-Compilation beim »Total Sellout« zuhören. Kaum mehr als einen Steinwurf von Los Angeles entfernt, in Dresden also, sampelte sich Robert Arnold zwischen 2006 und...

This is the recording of Dunkeltier’s aka SneakerDJ  session at the pre-party for the STRCamp festival in Vilnius, Lithuania in July 2014.

RA reviews Jacob Korn’s EP1

4.5/5 You & Me, Jacob Korn’s 2012 debut album for Dresden’s Uncanny Valley, was a swirling, often serrated and always challenging take on deep house that succeeded through experimentation rather than falling back on the genre’s usual tropes. This wonderful EP, the first of two by Korn that the label will release in the coming...

Scherbe’s Late Nite Safari reviewd by HHV mag (German)

Während er sich auf dem britischen Plattenlabel Fourth Wave als »King Of Kasio« stilisiert, geht Sebastian Stehlik alias Scherbe zeitgleich bei Uncanny Valley in Dresden auf »Late Nite Safari«. Wie eine solche Reise aussehen könnte, hat Labelhead Carl-Johannes Schulze im ulkigen Cover-Artwork festgehalten. Wie sie aber klingt? Wie nicht anders zu erwarten: extrem deep bis...

Scherbe one hour-long live performance + Q&A for ashore blog (German)

Scherben bringen bekanntlich Glück. Genauso verhält es sich auch mit der Musik des Produzenten Sebastian Stehlik alias – richtig – Scherbe. Seit 2010 veröffentlicht der Wahldresdner auf Labels wie Big Bait, Uncanny Valley, Fourth Wave oder Kashual seine Version von hiphop-inspiriertem und tiefem House. Spätestens seit seiner “Jardin Du Midi EP” sind auch wir Fans...

Jacob Korn’s EP1 reviewed by Mavrik

“Claiming recent fame for the ingenuity and consistency of his live shows, Jacob Korn has released the first of 2 EP’s on Uncanny Valley with a freshly established status as a house and techno heavyweight. The latest release fronts a familiar 90’s house and techno impression, whilst featuring some novelty sounds that blend together in...
Jacob Korn's EP1 reviewed by Juno Plus

Jacob Korn’s EP1 reviewed by Juno Plus

“It sees him continue to take deep house in different directions, delivering a quartet of tracks that variously doff an imaginary cap to rubbery punk-funk, African highlife records, cosmic disco, new age house and, of course, Chicago jack. It’s a mark of Korn’s versatility and production skills that such eclecticism actually makes sense; there’s nothing...

Rat Life 2 reviewed by Juno Plus

“At what stage does fact become stranger than fiction? On this second Rat Life release, it seems that the truth is hard to believe. According to Rat Life, the recently launched sublabel from the Dresden collective that spawned the Uncanny Valley label, “Wir Sind Soldaten” (we are soldiers) is the work of Neue Wohnkultur. Autonervous...

UV020 Review on Froh Froh (German)

  “Bei der Katalognummer 20 ist das Dresdner Label Uncanny Valley mittlerweile angekommen. Auf der Jubiläumscompilation gibt es auch einen Leipziger Bezug. Unglaublich, welch eine Fülle an durchweg überzeugender Musik Uncanny Valley in nur dreieinhalb Jahren veröffentlicht hat. Und es gibt ja auch noch die zwei SublabelsRat Life und Shtum. Da hat sich einiges aufgestaut in Dresden,...

UV020 Review on Juno Plus

Collaboration, particularly within local scenes, has always been one of the more positive aspects of electronic music. Since the evolution of house and techno in Chicago and Detroit respectively, producers, musicians, label owners and party promoters have always joined forces to work together, put on events and showcase their sounds to the world. Chicago may...

Melbourne Deepcast: Interview & Podcast by Cuthead

Since its inception in 2010, Uncanny Valley and their collective have managed to break all the rules usually adhered to within modern house music production. We use the term house music loosely here as their output has often included hip hop, various takes on downtempo and weird versions of techno and acid amongst a bunch...

Everlasting Sunday reviewed in De:Bug

Es geht um Glitter. Einzig und ausschließlich. Verkleidet als House auf der A-Seite, als HipHop auf der B-Seite. Eine EP, neun Tracks. Und würde Cuthead singen, gäbe es reichlich Instrumentals. So nah dran, so oldschool ist die neue EP. Glitter also. Nicht am Baum, sondern im Flirren. An der emulierten Harfe, im Sample des achtsamen...

Sonntagnachmittag, eine After Hour irgendwo in der Stadt. Man tanzt sich verkatert durch den letzten Tag des Wochenendes und wünscht sich insgeheim, der Moment würde eine kleine Ewigkeit lang andauern.

“Deep Shadows” o, ancor meglio, “Nautic Walking” se preferite il nuovo orientamento quattro quarti di Cuthead, sono le perle di “Everlasting Sunday”, il nuovo EP / quasi-album firmato da Robert Arnold. Elettronica intelligente e senza confini quella del produttore di Dresda. Uno che in piena crisi economica si mette a scavare a cielo aperto negli...

Pelski: Cuthead – Everlasting Sunday review

Cuthead has provided the weird and wonderful Uncanny Valley with some of its best material: his 2010 ‘Sinner’ was the series’ trump card, and the solid ‘Brother’ and ‘Slenda Daddy’ further cemented the former hip hop artist’s house credentials. Everlasting Sunday sees the Dresden producer lay down some charming hip hop and house jams that are...

“Having been schooled during Red Bull Music Academy’s Barcelona sessions, German producer Cuthead (born Karvan de Robartosz) makes cavernous music that navigates in and out of the confines of genre.
