Max Turner is known for being one of the core founders and long time members of the
impenetrable rap fortress known as the Puppetmastaz, that he founded with his cousin Paul PM,
both of whom were joined by artists like Chilly Gonzales and Patric Catani to complete one of the
most riveting entertainment stories in early 21st century history. Through touring abroad for many
years Turner became a nomad of professional necessity and has spent significant amounts of time
in Spain and France and Portugal, however, in 2009 he shifted to India where he studied indian
classical Vocal (Carnatic singing) and subsequently settled in Nilgiris of Tamil Nadu for an
extensive period. Now back in Europe these first two FUN IN THE CHURCH releases are the
beginning of a wider catalog that will be released gradually after a sabbatical period of almost 5
years in which Turner did not release new solo material. Originally from Hamburg, Turner also has
roots in Scotland, he is currently producing a new album in Paris while touring as usual.

ZA! are two friends playing more than two instruments (drums, guitar, trumpet, keyboards, voice...).
They play experimental rock mixed electronica, samplers, world music and anything else you can imagine.
They've played all over the World, touring Japan, Australia, USA, many countries in Europe, Brazil, Russia,
Swaziland and festivals all around Europe.
In the evenings in Manila Bing and his Soul Stompers play old soul
classics from Otis Redding to James Brown for tourists in the city’s many hotels.
At the dead of night, they move on to local bars where they can play their own music.
Like urban culture all around the world, Manila’s urban scene pop-culturally echoes the
influences of the American colonial past. But the influences noticeable in “Rosas Epektos”
take it a step further: 60s soul intermingles with Jamaican beats, psychedelic and kraut rock.
Brezel Göring recorded the album in just a few days in Khavn’s living room on a multitrack tape.
The date on the album cover lists “1969” as the recording year. And although this is in reality not true,
the authenticity of the sound actually gives the illusion that it was produced in the 1960s.
This type of soul music in Tagalog did not exist in the sixties in the Philippines,
yet songs on the album such as “Ruined Heart” and “Island Monkeys” reconnect the future with the past and rewrite it.
