Now 5 releases old, the basic idea behind Berceuse Heroique was described in the Juno Plus best labels of 2013:-
‘There’s been a simple concept to the Berceuse Heroique releases thus far: one track either side of a heavyweight vinyl plate, cut and mastered by a celebrated plant to prime their releases for optimum club play. Decidedly no frills, the one concession to visual artistry are A4 inserts that brandish juxtaposing imagery and quotations with a heavily loaded socio-political context that doesn’t necessarily inform the music as such; instead they offer a thought provoking commentary on the environment in which we consume this music.’
ΚΕΜΑΛ also apparently enjoys carrot cake and some pretty funny tweets.
‘3/5 for the new STL and 4/5 for the new Pampa release? STL OR SHUT THE FUCK UP U FUCKIN TOOL !!!!!!!!!!!’
‘“I recorded this Vinyl Only mix with two decks and a mixer,wearing a t-shirt that said Save Vinyl while i was destroying two cdjs”’
One of the tags for the mix is ‘jamie oliver killed my pet rabbit’.
