Plastikman - Ex Live (album stream)

new plastikman album in a decade, just before his exclusive appearance at sonar'14 in barcelona. it's a live recording from the the fundraiser event of new york's prestigious guggenheim museum to the invitation of dior's artistic director, raf simons. however the plastikman 1.5 show would have been more than welcomed, richie hawtin locked himself in to record quickly and effortessly a fresh material as his interpretation of art, architecture, painting and sculpture, all inspired by the guggenheim museum. well, the outcome is different from my two favorites, musik and consumed. i still don't entirely get those bright and bold trancey pads compared to the old dark, gritty and tricky textures, but hey.. it was made with an upper-class fundraiser fashion show in mind. 

digital out now, physical to follow with a subpac deal in a month's time. you can also read some thoughts of mr. hawtin in a fresh interview by djtechtools.

jungle fever - short documentary by dazed

from house to hardcore to jungle, into drum and bass. educational video about one of the most influental genre of modern electronic music. legendary figure heads like fabio & grooverider, ray keith, hype, kenny ken, brockie, the ragga twins and many more from the days of glory. to be honest, i was touched by the moment when ray keith have put the needle carefully on a white label version of his absolute classic 'terrorist'. his eyes tell a tale, and the utterly satisfied smile of nicky blackmarket to the sound is just priceless. go emotional to the mighty sound of jungle!

nightclubber sideways 012 - laurine frost

old time music maniac friend, laurine frost (salto, thema, archipel, etc) made a delicate mixture of many elements taken from tracks, into a constant flow of soundscapes and pulsation. this is how a talented producer sounds when he slices up his favourite tracks, glues together in ableton and gives a birth of something completely new. this podcast for the romanian nightclubber podcast is highly recommended for everyone into repetitive minimalism and likes shackleton or bruno ponsato.

the terminator theme riddle

an interesting read of one of the most inspiring tune of a past era, the terminator theme is still a landmark of many. 

 “Terminator was very difficult because I was using many different synths and sequencers and because I didn’t have MIDI available on many of them I had to sync them by hand. This is why the main theme is in a very odd time signature. The looping of the Prophet 10 was just a little short of a complete measure.” read more

monolake live @ ego dusseldorf 5 june 1999

monolake's timeless tunes had been rearranged in this 15 years old live recording that robert henke found accidentally today. a lovely flood of mesmerising atmosphere, lush repetition and subtle sounds yet again from the ableton mastermind. just awesome.

"This is a live recording, captured at Ego club in Düsseldorf, June 5 1999. The music has been created with a self written step sequencer, the PX-18, controlling a basic sample player and effects engine, all done in MaxMSP, running on a Powerbook G3. The step sequencer had some unique features, e.g. the ability to switch patterns independently in each track, which later became an important part of a certain music software. I found the recording on a backup disk today. It has not been edited or mastered. During the first 20 minutes of the set, and before the 'encore' the Monolake CD 'Gobi' is playing in the background."
