Bureau B present the debut offering from Franco-German electro-chanteuse Ninca Leece, whose There Is No One Else When I Lay Down And Dream is an impressively complete package, all performed, produced and penned by Leece herself, with the exception of the album's only cover: 'Lovesong', by The Cure. It's a testament to the prominence of Leece's own personal style that it merges into her corpus of work so smoothly. Opening cut 'Touriste' is an ideal port of entry into Leece's world, pointing to references like Ellen Allien's Berlinette album, or perhaps the most beat-oriented Barbara Morgenstern recordings. By the time former single 'On Top Of The World' rolls around the production toughens up into a midtempo 4/4 format, with a Miss Kittin-like, half-spoken delivery. From here on the playlist fluctuates between various degrees of clubby appeal and poppiness, striking a great balance on a track like 'The Uncut Version', a terrific slice of glitchy future disco.

Ninca leece is new to thesongsays, but not new to the scene. a trained musician, a jogger, and damn good cook, she’s been toiling for years in studios and on small computers far and wide. with an album already under her belt on bureau b (a sub-label of tapete records), she brings her forward-thinking productions to thesongsays … and romantic techno moves forward. feed me rainbows is the result of ninca’s fairy tale-like productions. and by “fairy tale,” we mean there’s a story behind it: hidden in the claps, in the wall of sound, the soft kicks and bubbling bass lines, there’s something delicate and magical moving through it constantly, something not easily pin-ponted. perhaps the answers are in those whispers stretching throughout? or maybe it’s when the clouds of noise part, when the abstract melodies subside midway and we are left with the bare bones of the track - a single guitar plucking harmonics, underpinned by a strangely disharmonic whine. by the track’s end, and like all good cliff-hangers, we are left with a sensation that something else is going to happen. our happiness wasn’t in vain but more of an investment in what’s to come. we feel there is a sequel … and we hope there’s even more after that. feed me rainbows two? on the b side, public lover (ninca leece and bruno pronsato) take this fairy tale to a more sultry and conclusive level: turning the beauty into something naughty, a one-night stand if you will. and what better way than a huge bass line, rhodes, and the couple singing in her native french, “donne-moi des arcs-en-ciel?” as a whole, public lover seems to be grabbing minute pieces here and there from the original, teasing you for an entire 16 minutes of vocal snippets, rhodes, bubbles, ninca blowing her nose, and wobbly guitars. it’s ladies night in their story, and we feel it’s a sure-fire after-hour cut exclusively for only the dingiest parties … we hope you agree.

Public Lover (Bruno Pronsato & Ninca Leece) locked themselves away in their quiet Prenzlauer Berg studio in January. Their mission: creating music for summer. We feel they were overwhelmingly successful. Musique D’Hiver Pour L’Été is all about warm instrumentation with a special emphasis on an intentional lo-fi production. you might hear the recording process - a transparency in process to bring you personally into their studio. it might even be a statement in an age of digitalism and overproduction. It rides the line between romantic techno and sultry disco. It’s a record to grind with your lover to in the hottest clubs of summer, it’s also one to put on while laying half naked in the sun, or djing at your mother’s bbq. Keeping in line with Ninca and Bruno’s solo work, there is also the elements of the so-called, ‘accidentally avant-garde,’ one of the cornerstones of thesongsays. More importantly, however, there is the underlying theme of romanticism and elegance. Ninca’s balmy vocals and jazzy keyboard hooks are the backdrop for a night on the town while Bruno’s tight rhythm section is the reason to go home and wrap up with your lover. As a digital bonus, our man Anthony Collins turns up the heat on the dancefloor side of things with an ambitious and strikingly emotional remix of We Are. Taking the bare bones of the track and adding his own musical genius to the mi

'A Berlin, les producteurs techno les plus pointus s'emparent du jazz. En septembre, Ricardo Villalobos publiait Re : ECM, réinterprétation audacieuse, parfois ardue, de titres du célèbre label jazz. Exilé depuis une dizaine d'années dans la capitale allemande, le batteur et producteur américain Bruno Pronsato croque à son tour la note bleue avec Public Lover, un duo qu'il a monté avec sa compagne, la chanteuse française Ninca Leece. Chez Public Lover et Villalobos, une même magie de son, un même goût pour l'avant-garde entre chuintements électroniques et canevas de percussions. Pourtant, Public Lover est bien plus accessible. Avec ses parties de batterie, de basse ou de piano électrique enregistrées à partir de séances d'improvisation live, A broken shape of you a préservé le son rond et chaud des disques d'antan. Une chaleur et une intimité que l'on retrouve dans la voix, sensuelle et retenue, de Ninca Leece. Techno undergound et jazz n'avaient, a priori, rien à faire ensemble. Notre duo musical et amoureux en propose un mariage évident. Comme hier un autre couple, Womack & Womack, célébrait brillamment les noces du funk-jazz et de la pop.' Erwan Perron - Télérama
