Eclectica
CD SD 130-2
DLP SD 130-1
Release date: 15.11.2004

Minus 8

After two great albums on munich’s Compost Rec. (“Elysian Fields” in 2000, “Minuit” in 2002) and the Soundtrack for “Viktor Vogel - Commercial Man” (2001, Columbia Pictures) Minus 8’s brandnew (5th) album „Eclectica“ is ready to go!

Featuring guest-vocalists Sitta Föhr (“Daylight”, “Soverato” & “Montreux”), Sharon Harris (“Pussycat”, “Acapulco 60” & “Capriccio”), New York Rappers Dread Event (“Hard 2 Survive” & “Mistaken Identity”), Ras Charmer (“So Fine”, “Brave&Bold Dub”), Cali P. (We are One”), Ras Theo (“Quaylude Slumber”) and Michael Morris (“Go:Disco”), the album shows the massive versatility of Zürich based producer, remixer and dj Robert Jan Meyer aka Minus 8.

Wheras “Minuit” was pretty much brasil influenced, “Eclectica” draws a wider bow from Downbeat to Hip-Hop, to Disco, to Ragga and back with setting a high value on the different vocals.

On top, it’s Switzerlands jazz-legend Kurt Weil playing the vibraphon on “Soverato”!

The most diversified Minus 8-album so far and definitely one of the highlights of late 2004!
So now it’s time to let the music play, or freely adapted from Sitta Föhr in the opening track……come and take a ride with me…

Pussycat
12"
SD 134-1
Release date: 05.09.2005

If you feel inspired by Minus 8’s latest album “Eclectica” (Stereo Deluxe) but yearn for more, here come two of the album’s most fascinating tracks in brand-new versions. “Pussycat”, a compelling soul & funk tune with a spirit of the late 1960s gets a Boogie-meets-Electro treatment. The track surprises with hot club compatibility while maintaining the wonderful vocals of singer Sharon Harris. Downtempo jewel “So Fine” featuring Jamaican singer Ras Charmer is well enhanced by live percussions of Zurich artist Martin Stewart. As special treat, “So Fine” is also available as new download type ‘Digimpro’ which enables users to create their own remix versions by way of combining separately provided basslines, drums and other instrumental samples.
