yesterday our beloved and admired donna d´estate, also known as d-tex, became 104 years old! (she still looka like 21, though 🙂 )
for thissa reason giorgio aka hillberg sent her/him a birthday postcard from hillberg and d-tex estate no. 12 in barbados:
news straight out from our hillberg and d-tex music-garages: quick preview on our upcoming release „ultimate warlord e.p.„, coming out in spring 2016 and again featuring our great singer gabriella haenninen.
alltogether the new e.p. will boast two great hillberg and d-tex songs:
– ultimate warlord; our humble dedication to this great italo-disco track from 1979;
– pavel interstellar´s incredible spaceflight to the stars where he met dave, dee, dozy, beaky, mick and tich when they smoked a cigar and listened to an old miles davis album
ehrm. yep… you might find the second song´s title abbreviated as „pavel interstellar´s…“ as today´s music industry somehow has a very hostile approach towards creative song-titles. however…
however with these news hillberg and d-tex are stepping back into their business after this „mixed“ last year 2015, when we were „muddled up“ prety much by life. but now: give it up for the… music…:
Hillberg and D-Tex Feat. Gabriella Haenninen: Spin Me Round // FireMusic FM38, Release Date: November 17th, 2015:
Yes, a dream has come true! Hillberg and D-Tex are back with a new release… Actually it´s not that new, as „Dead or Alive“ did a similar song in ´84 – only sparsely similar. And it simply lacked something: Not musicwise, but… Pete Burns simply was lacking our „Giorgio´s“ wonderful moustache. So the tune was simply crying for a cover-version. Our singer, mysterious „Lady Who“ (aka Gabriella Haenninen) joined in as our perfect musical companion.
Along with „Spin Me Round“ we wanted to send you a pack of crunchy „Popcorn“: Nuff said; enjoy and dance!
„from city to city“ – hillberg and d-tex new release on fire music rec., released on june 15th. solid funky 1970ies disco funk tune meets the 2010s. plus: the great remixes of our highly appreciated artists La Rochelle (A/ Etage Noir Rec.) and Kooky feat. Dr. Watson (Paper Rec./UK).
our second release came out on june 29th on famous berlin based label flash recordings: „LSD“ – three great techhouse remixes of our tune „that hippie track“ by maxime dangles /France, responder and tony vegazz (A).
hillberg „still alive“:
one incident hit and hurt us in may: hillberg aka „giorgio´s“ visit at his doctor showed he had to undergo a bigger surgery in end of june.
so all went well and hillberg is bravely recovering. still: it forced us to cancel all planned and agreed gigs from june, july and including august – including such gigs as linz compilation at posthof linz / A or ruhr in love / germany on the technoton stage.
however, hillberg still will have to stay home for august, but we are working on some „comeback“ gigs starting with september- stay tuned, we will keep you posted!
