Ryoh Mitomi – Cockpit

Rosario Galati from Italy and German producer Yves Murasca are known for several solo releases and mutual remixes before teaming up as a common production team. At this special opportunity Kittball is proud to present the second general release inside this project. The Hypnotize EP includes two strong tech-house smashers with a straight recognition on the structure with character of the title track and “I Don’t Need You”, which is supported by two melodic remixes by the compatriots of the original producers, namely Italian Simone Vitullo and the duo Holter & Mogyoro from Vienna, who come out with a debut on the imprint as well. Great material to discover and playing out loud!

Juliet Sikora, King Brain feat. Anita Davis – A Tribute To House Divas EP

Since her huge success on the underground hit Larry’s Garage last year, Juliet Sikora resumes her style and gets accompanied on both tracks of her new EP with very special vocals by Anita Davis, who is most known for having been part of the Eurodance-Project Magic Affair in the middle of the 90s. With the incredible King Brain being considered as one of the most renowned studio producers in the industry who was also partner on her recent release at Coyu’s Suara imprint, they have joined production forces again to result the title tune “A Tribute To House Divas” as a collab. The second track “I Got It” is a pure and groovy club smasher inspired by her perfect sets. New masterpiece by one of Kittball’s model artists!

Listen to two dOP remixes of Rashid Ajami’s new single ‘Night Prayer’ ft. JAW

Fresh from remixing Foreign Guest’s recent single ‘Rek’ for Berlin’s Crossfrontier Audio, London-based producer Rashid Ajami is proud to present his inaugural EP for Noir Music ahead of its release on September 25th. ‘Night Prayer’ ft. JAW – complete with two remixes from Parisian trio dOP – taps into the distinctive, deeply-resonant sound that first saw Ajami catch the attention of influential tastemakers Anjunadeep back in early 2013.

Centred around a deep, peak-time groove, ‘Night Prayer’ first and foremost exhibits Ajami’s flair for writing song-based music. Gentle, percussive layers and short bursts of melody provide the perfect foil for JAW’s hazy, dream-like vocal flow to take centre stage to lucidly mesmeric effect. Beautifully balanced and squarely aimed at the dance floor, it’s abstract, prayer-like composition also means it has legs away from the club too, reinforcing Ajami’s ability to produce records that connect in both different ways and crucially, spaces.

Backed up by a pair of remixes from revered beatmakers dOP – one a deeper, tech-leaning vocal rework and the other a stomping, melody-laced instrumental dub – ‘Night Prayer’ represents some of Rashid Ajami’s best work yet, adding to a growing discography that already includes releases on Anjunadeep, Cajual, Kittball and Armada.

NOTIZE FEAT FURA – DEMONS II EP INCL. KANT & JULIET SIKORA REMIX

We are very proud to present the 90th Edition of our Kittball-catalogue with a release of one of the best international artists in demand at the moment. His “Never You Mind EP” released back in 2013, was already blessed with great success to KANT from Denmark. So it’s truly time for his new “Widespread EP” which credits not only the title in full. Translating his name from Danish it simply means “edge”. Edges in their quality refer to something unconventional, exciting and new, which doesn’t immediately fit into conventional standards. This is how his philosophy and imagination of music works and can describe in a proper way. The original title track comes around in a pretty deep culture with a kind of little bells being accompanied by a phat bass with an atmospheric break. The second track in the bundle called “Mesmerized” excels itself with driven kicks and grooves the dancefloor massively. The remix work comes from Newcastle with the newcomer Cristoph, who already had his debut on Kittball with his Rimshot EP end of 2014. He “mesmerized” his contribution to gloomy elements and a very nice and raw character.

ANTE PERRY & DIRTY DOERING – I CAN DANCE EP

Starring on this new release, two of the most important protagonists of the German Deep-House scene decided to play „Kittball“ with each other. For those of you who don’t know the game yet, the rules are simple. It’s about teaming up in the studio and create a piece of work which tops all expectations.
Specifically it’s about two national and well-known team actors, who celebrate a première with a direct EP on the label. Hailing from Dortmund, Ante Perry certifies his place at the labels league of extraordinary gentlemen. With his long-term fellowship he was able to have frequent effect on Kittball’s sound with contributing his musical qualities.

Now he joined forces anew with Berlin based Dirty Doering, who was also partner on his track „XTC1“ as component of his „Freaks EP“ released back in 2014.
The trippy results „A Foley“ alongside “I can dance” prove a deep, but groovy atmosphere for all international dancefloors at any time.
Strengthening the individuality of the tracks’ nature, they invited the Belgian Nu-Dance-Project LouLou Players for a move, with “I can dance” as unquestionable reply with their remix. The cherry on the cake comes along by Hamburg’s House-Legends Moonbootica with “A Foley”s edit, which is warmly welcomed as a debut on the label. Considering overall as a frame, with cheerleaders supporting this release as a game, there’s nothing to say as hip hip hooray!

Purple Disco Machine – No Lips (Original Mix)

PAJI – THE OLD GODS EP

One of Kittball’s most cherished in-house artists, Paji can reflect on a fantastic year trotting the globe with his violin incorporated live sets, as well as having released three times on the German imprint – including two separate remixes of close friends and label founders Tube & Berger and Juliet Sikora. Whilst squaring up to face his most propitious year yet Paji’s unfaltering momentum suggests no symptoms of slowing as he kick-starts Kittball’s fruitful 2015 release schedule with a mammoth double track EP.

‘The Old Gods’ lives up to its name by being a production of epic proportions. Paji’s dexterity with the violin is married seamlessly with quality electronic elements, in this case subterranean synths, mesmerising keys and a meandering hook. In a word – colossal. Continuing the theme of gods, ‘Wotan’ borrows its name from the Germanic and Anglo-Saxon deity, and this is likewise reflected by the tracks elevating production style. A vigorous lead bassline lays the foundations, whilst layers of chords and atmospherics ebb euphorically throughout the mix.

CHEMICAL SURF & JULIET SIKORA – WHAT MATTERS EP

Since releasing their “Walking Back EP” on Kittball, Brazilian duo Chemical Surf have demonstrated their indisputable work ethic in the studio with appearances on the likes of Miami Underground Records, Sprinkler, Lust Be and Erase Records. Collaborating with them is Juliet Sikora, Kittball co-founder and the heart and soul of the label. Alongside Tube & Berger, she is responsible for “Come On Now (Set It Off)” – a track labelled as Pete Tongs “Essential New Tune” before it reached #1 and #2 on the Beatport Deep House and overall chart respectively.

With shuffling percussion, a decadent bassline and tension heightening climaxes, “No Matter” features a heady vocal hook that is pitched-down, chopped, and distorted whilst making an undeniable nod to garage. Meanwhile “Whats That” continues the theme of commanding low-ends, with a rumbling bass hook taking centre stage. This time the vocals have been left intact adding a sing along factor to a dancefloor commanding piece of four-to-the-flour house.
