Blog: Revolutions per day

Revolutions per day (RPD instead of RPM) is basically a sort of small diary about things going on at the Enfant Terrible HQ… stuff I am working on for upcoming releases, music I am listening too and inspires me and I like to share with others and other daily stuff related one way or another to Enfant Terrible… thus giving a little inside look into what is going on here and is what is part of realising the ET records…

out real soon: Zosima, Europ Europ & Ian Martin

Out real soon will be the next three releases: Zosima, Europ Europ and Ian Martin… the printing process of the artwork took me a little more time as expected… but all is ready now…

The Ian Martin comes in the “regular” screen printed Gooiland Elektro sleeve… for the Zosima and Europ Europ see the photos in this post… also for the Europ Europ I did a special edition… well two to be honest… one with gold ink on white paper and one with gold ink on black paper… the last one come out really cool… the gold went sort of greenish… see for these also the photos in this post…

These special editions come in real small quantities… the gold on white in only 9 copies and the gold on black in only 16 copies… the regular edition (black on white printed) comes in an edition of 190 copies… catch them while you can!

dj M. – Lesson#76

Yesterday I uploaded the most recent dj set I did for Radio Resistencia at Intergalactic FM. This time a mix of about 45 minutes with minimal synth from the 80’s up till now… including some ET stuff… and from poppy to more experimental… oh… and at some point the needles skipped due to wind blowing the record sleeve on the turntable while a record was spinning… as some know I always record these sets live… so mistakes and fuck-ups can happen…

Ausland

This weekend me and the rest of the Radio Resistencia crew were at the opening festival of the new campsite Buitenland (meaning “abroad” in English and “Ausland” in German). We did two sets of which the first one was the best… too bad we had to stop and move to another stage… this did not work well…

The first set we played at an outdoor stage… back to back… acid tracks, techno and early techno… some people in the crowd knew some tracks from way back and came to tell us… some others just really liked it and came to tell us and a few thought it was to dark and heavy for the place… and came to tell us… but well… people were dancing and we enjoyed ourselves… next stop could be Berlin later this year… not 100% sure yet…

Balint Brösel @ Radio Resistencia

Tomorrow, sunday the 28th of May, we will be for a second time at Snorfabriek in Utrecht to record a Radio Resistencia session… this as Kapitaal is still located there… Balint Brösel will perform live… a German duo located in Nijmegen… they play lo-fi tunes with both simple electronics and acoustic instruments… you could possibly classify this as naive-pop… below are two tracks to check out…

We start at 15.00 hour and end at 18.00 hour… I will spin some records as well as dj Alacidus… drinks are also available…

 

New beats

Recently some great beat orientated records arrived here at ET HQ… these are added now to the webshop… instead of using too many words I have posted below three tracks from three of these records…

One is by Solitary Dancer… a project which reminds me in some ways of Sololust… another one is Multiple Man… a band with a classic EBM sound… very much like Ministry during their “Twitch” period and also with references to Nitzer Ebb… also the second compilation on DKA Records arrived… filled again with contemporary EBM beats and moods… Celldöd contributes a track which seems like a tribute to Liaisons Dangereuses… all three tracks are below… enjoy!
