New signing – October Dance

October_Dance_Presspicture
A very warm welcome to our latest signing.

October Dance drifts within a universe of kitsch 80s pop and disco. Synthesizers, percussion and catchy bass lines represents the primary elements of the music. Inspired by 80s pop art, the band is drawing references to artists such as Talking Heads, Arthur Russell and LCD Soundsystem.

In January 2013, the band released their first EP ’7 Moon’ within the music collective ‘Oh! My Collective’, among associated bands like Ice Cream Cathedral and Virgin Suicide. September 2013 , the band feature with the song ‘Houses Falling’ on ‘Sound of Copenhagen 11’. During the forthcoming spring of 2014, their second EP will be released and distributed by Sound of Copenhagen.

We hope you like them as much as we do!

Listen to their first single ‘Houses Falling’ here:

Bar O

Bar-O
»Der er mange fede steder i København, som enten lægger vægt på god musik eller på lækre drinks,« siger Le Gammeltoft i en pressemeddelelse. »Vi vil gerne vise, at man kan kombinere de to og skabe en fed helhedsoplevelse«

Og det har de to musikpassionister, Le Gammeltoft og Peter Visti, gjort. Tre dage om ugen er deres nye sted, Bar O, nemlig åben for gæster. Her skabes en imødekommende atmosfære og serveres cocktails, drinks, vine, champagner og øl.

Udover godt til ganen er der naturligvis også sørget for lyden.

»Som dj glæder jeg mig, efter mange års rejsen rundt på forskellige spillesteder i verden, til at spille et fast sted, hvor man kender pulten og lyden i rummet« fortæller Peter Visti.

Kollegaernes bar ligger i Pilestræde 12, og dørene åbner første gang fredag 25. oktober 22:00.

Åbningstiderne herefter er:
Torsdag fra kl. 20.00
Fredag fra kl. 15.00
Lørdag fra kl. 20.00

It’s official

Earlier this week we made it official with the fantastic Fitness Figures.

We discovered Fitness Figures in the early stages of Karriere Kanonen and after watching them live at a Vinnie Who support gig, we rapidly came to believe that it was a project worth fighting for.

So congratulations to Fitness Figures and ourselves for this important milestone.

Listen to one of Fitness Figures’ contributions to Karriere Kanonen:

Welcome!

flat-iDevices-mockup

We are online. Have a look around!

The website is designed by our good friend Frederik Christensen. Frederik also made the layout and design for the ‘Supreme Sound Of Copenhagen’ vinyl box and for our newly released compilation; Sound Of Copenhagen vol. 11.

The release of our eleventh compilation marks a turning point for Sound Of Copenhagen, establishing the label as a more comprehensive venture.
We will continue releasing our trademark compilations, but furthermore Sound Of Copenhagen will be releasing full length albums from some very promising Danish acts. Have a look at our ‘artist page’ and stay tuned for news about our artists, releases and new projects.

To celebrate our new website, we give away this beautiful remix of a former ‘Sound Of Copenhagen’ artist ‘Shanghai’ by the talented Brynjolfur. Enjoy!
