Just This is the expression of a social, metropolitan and underground movement. In 2015, alongside a heavy Europe and North American touring schedule, Hunter/Game opened the doors of the new Just This vinyl label, distributed by Kompakt. The label opened with the leftfield electronic dance stylings of Danish-Icelandic band Primal and a Hunter/Game release, followed by releases featuring several charismatic names like Extravelt, Max Cooper, Locked Groove, Ripperton, Christian Löffler and more. With a stylistic approach that leans toward Hunter/Game’s own, the Just This releases are aimed at the discerning dancefloor, but are as influenced by the wild ambition of the 80’s electronic acts as by contemporary analogue production techniques.
After a long night of dancing, many night club patrons leave the venue with a certain track stuck in their heads. But for Âme, the DJ/production duo of Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann, the tunes lodged in their brains are the ones they didn’t hear, ones not yet written that would fit perfectly in their sets. Since 2003, Beyer and Wiedemann have penned songs that once existed just outside club-goers’ imagination, songs that boldly combined floor-filling elements with conceptual conceits while maintaining their visceral appeal. As part of Innervisions, the collective/label they run with Dixon, Âme (pronounced “AHM”) offer glimpses of the future of electronic music through their live project, genre-melding compilations, and an independently run shop that completes the connection between artist and admirer. In a genre obsessed with reliving the past, Ame are focused on what’s still to come!
It started in 2010 with the “Just This” parties. Hunter/Game’s own party, held in secret locations round the city, Just This has made Milan a compulsory stop for the touring electronic artist – from early shows that focused on local acts like Mind Against and Tale Of Us, growing to far bigger events with names like Dixon, Seth Troxler, Koze, Tennis and other DJs in Hunter/Game’s worldwide scene. And alongside the parties, the duo have released on Innervisions, Rumours, Last Night on Earth, My Favourite Robot, Hot Creations and Diynamic – with a Kompakt release in early 2015 – and each EP has earned more fans for their lush, deep-grooved analogue soundscapes.
