Crammed press release:

The Congotronics series has spawned a fervent following in the world of indie rock and electronic music... and now that world answers back in musical form. Crammed has asked a carefully chosen list of musicians (including Animal Collective, Deerhoof, Andrew Bird and many more) to come up with their own personal take on Congotronics. The result is this epic double album, consisting of 26 brand-new tracks from a wild mix of artists. They include covers, reworks and original compositions inspired by the electrifying sounds of Konono N°1, Kasai Allstars and other bands who play electrified traditional music (also known as "tradi-modern").
Most of the contributions blur the boundaries between reinventions and covers versions, reworks and homages. Much like its source material, this music is by turns serene, invigoratingly noisy or aimed squarely at open-minded dancefloors… yet always intriguing and in some way revelatory: this album pretends to be nothing other than a joyful homage to what has become a true phenomenon of contemporary music - but listen in, and maybe some unlikely musical bloodlines can be traced... Featured artists include prominent US indie bands such as Animal Collective, Deerhoof, Andrew Bird, Megafaun, Oneida, Portland's AU, New York's Skeletons and Chicago's Allá, unique personalities such as Juana Molina, Jolie Holland and Glenn Kotche (of Wilco), London's mutant pop sensation Micachu & The Shapes, innovative electronic music producers such as Shackleton, Optimo and Bass Clef from the UK, and Germany's Burnt Friedman and Mark Ernestus (of Basic Channel and Maurizio fame), a rare appearance by the label's seminal band Aksak Maboul and many more. The Congotronics bands paid tribute to are primarily Konono N°1 and Kasai Allstars, but also Sobanza Mimanisa, Kisanzi Congo, and Kasai Allstars offshoots Masanka Sankayi and Basokin. The album booklet includes quotes and statements by all contributors, who explain what drew them to Congotronics, and/or how they approached their track.

Cutters Records


australian label launched somewhere in 2005 - 2006, and relaunched a couple of years later. (apparently by a member of Cut Copy)

They released ep's from the midnight juggernaut & K.I.M. With the re-launch the added new artists to their roster (Das Moth, Voltage, Knightlife) and started series of 12"s. What you get are cool cosmic nu disco-housy tracks that are definitely worth checking out.

El Guincho - Bombay


International Feel Recordings




International feel is a record label based in Uruguay. I discovered it a couple of days ago while surfing on Greg Wilson's excellent blog. He had made an edit of Rocha's Feel the love, which happened to be released on IFR.

Rocha - Feel the Love (Greg Wilson Edit)



I must say I have been really impressed by International feel's artist roster and exciting song selection. It is quite amazing i must say, to the point i'm considering buying everything they have released.

There's an excellent interview of Mark, the label's founder on Inner Sound
