fLako - The Mesektet hhv.de Bundle
‘The Mesektet’, in ancient egyptian mythology, is one of the two solar boats used by the sun god ‘Ra’ to travel through the cycle of night and day and carry the moon across the sky. It is told that he died every dusk, had to fight the dark forces of the underworld and bring light to the dead souls as he passed through – just to be reborn in the morning. Just like the sun god, uprising producer fLako uses ‘The Mesektet’ to end the cycle of darkness and prepare for his own rebirth, marking the end of an era in his style of production and move forward into new musical directions, which he already started to explore on his ‘Mini Tollbooth EP’. This release includes a collection of previously unreleased or only digitally available works from the time up until 2008.
The artwork design was created by surrealistic painter Dan May, known for his hairy fantasy creatures possesing humanlike features.
Project: Mooncircle / hhv.de
Berlin-based label Project: Mooncircle is an official label from hhv.de. It was founded in 2002 by Gordon Gieseking and is specializing in the conjunction between electronic and organic music. Being interested in music from his earliest childhood on, it eventually became more than just a passion to him. The label, at first envisaged as a compilation project only, found the perfect partner with Thomas Ulrich and his mail-order hhv.de in 2004, later being joined by Jinna Morocha from Moscow. This led the way for the first instrumental and vocal solo releases by such artists as Mr Cooper, 40 Winks, CYNE, Jahbitat, John Robinson, MF Doom, Lambent, Lewis Parker, Non of Shadowhuntaz, Graciela Maria, Strand, Robot Koch, Pavel Dovgal, Ta-Ku, Mika Gao, Onra, Obba Supa, fLako, Sina., 1000 Names, DZA, Krts, Long Arm or Glen Porter. In 2009 the sub-label Project: Squared, run by Paul Cooper and Peter Schachmann, two long-standing companions and co-workers, was founded. Project: Squared releases mainly Dubstep and Techno 12” records from such artists as Asusu, Furesshu, AnD, L-OW, Tom Diccico, Shifted and others. Another sub-label, Finest Ego, was added in 2010. Run by Malte Tarnow, its aim is to consolidate the versatility of instrumental beats, glitch or wonky and anything in between or beyond. The outcome are compilations with such producers as Daisuke Tanabe, Isaac Aesili, Om Unit, Lapalux, RLP, ichiro_, Himuro Yoshiteru, Pixelord, Monky, Christoph El Truento, and various others. The work of illustrators and graphic designers such as Bioniq, Dan May, Iain McArthur, Ima One, LNY, Gordon, 44 Flavours, La Mano Fria, and The Binh create images that accompany the acoustic spaces. Project: Mooncircle with its various producers & vocalist shall be an interesting experience for anyone looking for the extraordinary.

Review
Philipp Kunze, 05.06.2011

Jeden Abend stirbt der ägyptische Sonnengott Ra und kämpft sich durch die Unterwelt, um den Seelen dort Licht zu bringen. Wiederauferstanden am nächsten Morgen bettet er dann auch das Diesseits in warme Strahlen. Eines der Boote, mit dem er seine allnächtliche Reise vollzieht nennt sich »Mesektet«. Inspiriert durch diesen Mythos gab auch fLako seinem neuen Album den Namen Mesektet, auch als versteckten Hinweis darauf, dass er mit diesen neuen Sounds in hellere Gefilde zu schippern gedenkt. Doch hört man sich das Album an, beschleicht einen das Gefühl, dass es sich beim geheimnisvollen Boot des Sonnengottes um eine Nussschale gehandelt haben muss. Sehr bedächtig schunkelt The Mesketet von Track zu Track, auf größtenteils sehr eindeutigen und simpel gehaltenen HipHop-Beat-Gerüsten. Dazu versuchen geloopte Synthies auf einigen Tracks den Kahn gen Sonnenaufgang zu treiben, während auf anderen Tracks warme, schillernde Klänge der organischen Welt nach einer zwischenweltlichen Lichterkettenparty anmuten. Nur auf manchen Songs zeigt sich der Produzent verspielt, in dem er den eingängigen Rhythmus gekonnt unterbricht, ein Stolpern oder ein Zögern in die forschen Drums einbaut. So fehlen The Mesektet um ein erleuchtenden Erlebnis darstellen zu können, die überraschenden Momente. Ein gutes, weil sehr kohärentes und eingängiges Album ist The Mesektet trotzdem geworden und solch sanfte Bounce-Beats genießt man ohnehin am besten im Dunkeln.
