New Release: Don – Robotermeitschi (Single)

Don – 20 years of street poetry

In spring 2021, the Bernese rap musician Don presented his debut album Wiudbluämä, with which he gained respect in the scene with high-quality lyrics and sensitive poetry and was able to enjoy a rapidly growing community. Or as wrote: “An exciting album on which there are references to ancient buildings and great jazz musicians.”

Robot whip

Don rhymes in clear Bernese German and ponders the relationship between humans and robots. Metaphors about cancel culture and consumer society can be seen in the verses. Will the protagonist marry the robot girl at the end of the track? The Bernese saxophonist Saxovoni accompanies the song musically. He is also responsible for the artwork.

Artist Spotlight: Schall und Rauch

We’d like to introduce you to a Rap crew from Zürich, Switzerland. They go by the name of “Schall und Rauch”.


This name stands for positive rap and love for music, life, language and people. Inspired by funk, jazz, blues and soul, the three-person Zurich crew walks on their own paths, but within listening distance to their idols from the golden 90s.
After a self-sufficient decade full of fleeting jams in bathing cloakrooms, cowsheds and hay sticks, the desire arose to capture these moments of happiness, to give them a lasting shape and to share them.
The wish became reality: The first album “Schall & Rauch mit Liib & Seel” has been rotating on turntables since 2017 and has also been able to get to know a large number of stages. In 2018 and 2019 the crew temporarily turned their backs on the crackling samples, dressed up and went to the organic lap of the blues band “Furhammer” for a pulsating live project.
At the same time, the second album “Verbunde” flourished, on which Schall & Rauch remained true to itself and celebrated its connection with funky boombap beats, mature rhyming chains, befriended musicians, hip-hop culture and the whole world. It’s about love!

Artist Spotlight: Where is Mona?

We’d like to introduce you to the alternative Rockband from Lyss, Switzerland called “Where is Mona?”

Mona is moody, likes it fast and rough, soft and melancholic or razor-sharp and edgy.
A spontaneous performance seduced four Swiss musicians to found WHERE IS MONA? With compositions by guitarist and background singer Tobias Preuss, sung by singer Stefan Jaberg, the drumming of Heinz Weingart and the bass of Antonin Jaun, Mona’s trail is followed with heart and soul. Alternative rock, yes, but the sound of the band touches other boundless musical shores and is carried by the musicians’ wealth of experience. So you might hear many kinds of influences like psychedelic, grunge, songwriter or jazz, which WHERE IS MONA? mix to their own sound. In autumn 2019, the debut album WHERE IS MONA? with original compositions was recorded and released in summer 2020.
