The Working Elite are Berlin-based spark plugs Thomas “Saap” Sabrowsky, of Extra Producktion, Terre des Pommes, ex-marine soldier, seasoned cook and barkeeper; and Daniel “D´LonelyAl” Nentwig, who moonlights as The Whitest Boy Alive, co-directs Extra Produktionen, plays keyboard and electric bass for various outfits, and engineers at Berlin’s Butterama Recording Center. Suffice it to say, the pair have named their collaborative project suitably. The Working Elite create recreational music for dancers to shimmer through the days and nights of balmy season.

on the eve of Who Are You’s release, a new collection of free form, free flowing music from E Ruscha V, we share the beachside bender of “Carried Away,” the second video by Ruscha V’s visual collaborator Dustin Lynn (one half of Dukes of Chutney).
E Ruscha V’s new album Who Are You is available March 2, 2018 on Beats In Space Records.
Today is the day. Memories of Cindy, by Kai Hugo’s Palmbomen II, is finally here. The four-part series is available on four 12″s, 2xCD, and digitally. Check out the video accompaniments below, shot and directed by Kai Hugo, and purchase the series here.
A certain someone spirits above the second part of Palmbomen II’sMemories of Cindy saga, a passage of five plaintive cuts rendered with spineful percussion, succinct melodies, and classic acid and New Beat textures and treatments.
Cindy’s story may take a darker direction musically in Memories of Cindy Pt. 2, but Kai’s appearance on Real Talk alludes only to strange ways that make up a normal day in Carmel Vista. If you missed part one, back track a bit or enter Palmbomen II’s world at your own risk.
The first three Palmbomen 12”s, Memories of Cindy Pt. 1 – 3, will be available exclusively on vinyl. Memories of Cindy Pt. 4 will be available exclusively as a “box set” including the first three 12”s. Each set includes a unique, pre-tragedy polaroid portrait of Cindy taken by Kai Hugo.
