Premiere: Dr.Nojoke – Nuknot

CLIKNO-MAT02-anonymity

Berlin-based producer/live performer/musician Dr.Nojoke (a.k.a. Frank Bogdanowitz) is a prolific sonic explorer. With over 100 releases under his belt, he has never been one to shy away from pushing the musical envelope.

While exploring self-made sounds, field recordings or topical themes, he’s continually pushed his Clinko imprint forward for the past 15 years.

Ahead of the August 7 release of the bass-heavy MAT ed.02, we’re pleased to world premiere “Nuknot,” a stark, hypnotic and captivatingly affair.

The physical release comes with artwork created by the artist Lucas Gutierrez and writings by the Danish philosopher, actress and choreographer Marianne Kjaer Klausen.

Fundraiser Launched to Help DJ Deeon

DJ Deeon ghetto houseAn online fundraiser has been launched to help Chicago house music luminary and ghetto house innovator DJ Deeon (a.k.a. Deeon Boyd), who has been struggling for years with health issues.

Widely known in the global underground for his bawdy productions and exuberant DJ sets, Deeon’s career dates back to 1994 when he released his debut Funk City EP on Windy City label Dance Mania. Deeon went on to release more than 30 releases for the label during a five-year stretch until it shuttered in 1999.

However, Deeon has suffered a series of health setbacks over the years, including quadruple bypass heart surgery and the amputation of his leg. In 2018, he suffered a mini-stroke and has battled other health conditions over the past two years.

As he’s unable to tour due to COVID-19, Deeon is asking fans to financially help him weather the storm. In return, donors can choose from a selection of offerings, including tracks, merchandise and even a private DJ gig.

“I’m not one to ask for help – it doesn’t sit comfortably with me – and I believe you should never get something for nothing so here I am offering to you what I can.”

With two decades as a DJ/producer to his credit, Düsseldorf technocrat Frank Sonic (a.k.a. Frank Staniek) has released techno-focused tracks on top labels like Toolroom, Zehn Records, Manual Music, Dear Deer, Sprout and Kittball.

After collaborating with L-EX on “Hulk (Original Mix)” for Zehn Records’ Elements VI compilation released at the end of July, Frank returns to Drumcomplex’s Complexed Records with the New World Order EP out on August 7.

We’re thrilled to world premiere “The Truth” off the dynamic three-track affair. Clocking in at nearly six minutes, the track opens with a dark aura and gradually intensifies to a euphoric synth-tastic crescendo.
