MGF030 – Jake Chambers - Won’t Change myself / Black Swan

1 Won’t Change Myself - Jake Chambers
2 Black Swan - Jake Chambers

To describe this brand new chapter for Musik Gewinnt Freunde and the artist behind this incredible release it would be necessary to get ready to adventure yourselves into the shadows and not to think about what would you listen but just feeling it deep inside our souls. The mysterious Jake Chambers returns on MGF with a new project called „Won’t Change Myself/ Black Swan“ following the unbelievable remix he did for „Swimming With Birds“ on the latest Matthus Raman’s release and he didn’t failed the expectations we had for his debut EP on the label.

How would you describe a chameleon best? It might be difficult to say it with words as this creature constantly change his color to fit to the environment and the same happen when Jake’s attitude for morphing his sound bring an unexpected blaze of color into the darkness changing the scenario the listeners might got used to.

The dirty sound of „Won’t Change Myself“, which is a live take recorded in his studio, shows perfectly how Jake can bring together peace and tension with a mix of harmony and roughness in a special way that is impossible to reproduce and that is becoming his unique trademark while on his „Black Swan“ he creates the kind of song that takes is shape only at the right moment, minute after minute, as the tide grows hour after hour on a desolate shore somewhere near the sea just to fade away after reaching the highest point. Are you brave enough to lose yourself in the shades and discover this amazing artist and his music on this brand new MGF030? We did and we hope you’ll walk the same beautiful path that made us discover this unique talent.

After recently joining the All Day I Dream and Kindisch families, YokoO returns to Musik Gewinnt Freunde with another exquisite 4 track package showcasing his talent. Stripped back sensual grooves blended with hugging textures and melancholic melodies have become the trademark sound of this great artist. Both the title track “Oneness”, which is the result of an organic live jam, and “Timeless Love” show us quite an hypnotic and stripped down side of his music whilst “Break The Light” and “Xani” offer the warm textures he is known for, bringing the listener to a more obvious emotional soundscape. Also featuring Australian but Berlin based singer/producer Seabourne, and German violinist/live artist Seth Schwartz, this EP is a gem that contains something for everyone.

MGF026 – Amazonia EP

1 YokoO - Amazonia

2 YokoO - A Deep Feeling



Since many years our good friend YokoO is part of the „Musik Gewinnt Freunde“ family but now its time for him to present his first full EP with all his visions what electronic music represents for him. With “Amazonia” Julien takes us to a tropical forest, a journey deep into nature amazingly combining environmental sounds and catchy atmospheres into a silky groove that catches your mind from the early beginning till the end. This trip continues with “Deep Feeling” and the “Velvet Retouch” by YokoO & Michelle Owen which drives us to a more club oriented direction but still keeping the essence of Julien’s sound melting those catchy baselines to harmonies not anyone will be able to create. This journey ends with YokoO’s remix of “Black Orchestra“ a classic by Cosmic Cowboys taken from their album “Zero Gravity Love” recently released on Musik Gewinnt Freunde. We couldn’t be more happy about this release and we suggest you to keep an eye on YokoO who will spend the whole summer in Berlin and is ready to rock the national & international dancefloors. And we all bet here at the headquarters that out of the forest a bright future is standing in front of him.
