What is it about corners? Places of chance encounters, moments of uncertainty about what may lay on the other side. Two directions converge and intersect and new directions reveal themselves.
In 2006 a series of coincidences and convergences brought Swiss producer Shaka and Canadian producer Breandan Davey together. Recognizing their convergent personal styles of music and their belief that modern electronic music must take on new directions, they formed an idea of a new label which by 2007 began to take shape, and Corner Records was born. >>>
Corner Records was founded in order to provide a viable marketing vehicle to talented musicians that push musical boundaries, whom due to the underdeveloped infrastructure of the independent electronic music industry receive little recognition or compensation for their efforts.
As Corner Records was founded by artists, the company believes strongly in honesty and integrity in dealing with our artists and the music we release. Corner believes artists should receive a fair return for their work and actively seeks out opportunities for touring and licensing of material in order to expose the artist and to help provide a sustainable income from their music.
Smooth Sailing - March 28th, 2008
A 01: Smooth Sailing feat. Lena Fennell
The title track and single, Smooth Sailing is an instant dance floor classic. Sexy and smooth, the track features the sultry vocals of Lena Fennell (Magnetfisch) over a body jacking funk bassline highlighted by counterpoint melodies and harmonic elements. A convergence of house and minimal techno, with references to Detroit and the songs of Matthew Herbert, Smooth Sailing is the flagship of the new style of Groove. >>>
B 02: Bubblebomb
The B-side sleeper hit, Bubblebomb, is the penultimate incarnation of the classic electronic-funk style. With its roots in Afrika Bambata and Parliment, Bubblebomb truely represents funk for the 21st century.
B 03: Smooth Sailing Rmx
minigroove Remix by Breandan Davey (Spichiger/Kunz/Davey 2007)
Strip Smooth Sailing down to its raw elements, distort, twist, mangle, and rebuild. This is the recipe that Breandan Davey used to cook up his darker and moodier version of Smooth Sailing in what is Breandan's trademark minimal funk-tech style.
