Released today: Sticky & Sandy - Blind Tiger EP

New Sticky & Sandy EP out today, filled with tight productions, sweet samples and undeniable groove - Four place-themed tracks to make you dance!

Buy it on iTunes!

Selected DJ-feeback and support:

Orphans STHLM:
"Montauk might as well have been done by Angelo Badalamenti for Twin Peaks. Epic tune!"

"New Orléans for me ! BIG!"

Jack Posada:
"Cool sampling material, def will play it loud! Coney Island is a stand-out for me!"

"Cool old school vibes, love the variety of regional flavors. Nice release!"

Chris Mojek:
"Great stuff guys. Coney & Montauk are super cool!"


Romantizing the Speakeasy era is done by many, a time of age strangely glorified, since it sprung from a depression. It's aesthetics is featured in endless rap songs, being written about in books, captured during the film noir era and beyond and finally getting its major revival in the beginning of this millenia.

This is not that strange, perhaps, we do face many simillarities with those of the Speakeasy-epoch: the crisis of the world economy being the main one.

This Sticky & Sandy-EP aims for those backyard hidden bars, late nights with to much whisky, to reenact a perfectly stirred Old Fashioned through sound waves. Digging in the crates, choosing wildly from crackly samples and manic flutes, adding a contemporary touch and making it all house music, the vibes alone should be enough to make you dance your troubles away.

3hundreds - Back In Love EP

New heat from Solos Congaloid-label, super effective house music, as we're used to by now!

// Sticky

Released today: Orphans STHLM - Limbo EP

One of the biggest, best and most magic 12-3 releases yet! Yes, the Oprhans STHLM first four tracker is out today!

Buy it on iTunes!

Selected DJ-feeback and support:

So Shifty:
"Very solid release, limbo is my fav of the bunch."

"Nice EP! .. Sci+Fi is really dancy!"

Jack Posada:
"The drums on 'Duden' are great, I love the atmosphere of the track. Good stuff overall!"

Ill Saint M:
"Nice house tracks!"

Chris Mojek:
"So sweet, techy goodness at its best. Partial to Sci-Fi due to the uplifiting sounds, but all 4 tracks are really good. Really good job on this one!"


Sci+Fi was originally called “Captain Morning and the vision of the Holy Dancers at the space mountain”, but the Orphans changed it. One can only imagine, however, the fierce discussions between the two, late nights in the studio. “The name is brilliant”, claims Andy. “Do you forget what decade we’re living in?”, answers Kasper. Silence. Headphones on again, continuing with the never ending work of producing that perfect house tune.

Enter Limbo, the track made with no conflict involved, no painful, excruciating, agonizing, almost unbearable naming-process. Just joyful fiddling with a darling production, almost perfect from the beginning. From when it was just an embryo travelling between computers through a dropbox relay. “Cheers to that!”, says the the young lads who we call the Orphans.

“I want, ney, NEED to make a track that expresses the feeling of bright jewels and exploding sharks!”, screams Kasper. Andy nods in silence and thoughtfully drinks his tea. “To work”, he utters. Duden is made that way, through the unified and focused silence of the two.

Finally, they produce Camelowsow during a seven day straight peyote-like delerium in a cabin on the Polish coastline, drinking bison vodka, eating apple cake and making music to make you dance.


Yes, we are super duper excited about this.
