Kalabalik

We are almost heading  our way to Sweden for the Kalabalik pa Tyrolen Festival. This is a yearly meeting for all things synth/wave/post-punk. Their focus is on contemporary music instead of the many festivals and parties out there who tend to pay more attention to bands from the past… so Kalabalik is really fitting the ET focus when it comes to that.

Also they have an open mind and attitude when it comes to these styles/genres… another thing we have in common. Through the years quite some artists who have appeared on ET performed already at Kalabalik… so I am really happy to head over there now myself for a label showcase with 6 live acts and me and Alacidus with our record bags…  and of course I am eagerly looking forward to experience this festival with all the other great live acts…

 

Intergalactic FM Fest

Intergalactic FM does a yearly festival and this year it is even more festive as they celebrate 10 years of going strong…

The festival is taking place in and around the IFM HQ in The Hague (NL)… and it goes on for 4 days… on friday (18th of May) and saturday (19th of May) Alacidus and I will play back2back dj sets as “Enfant Terrible”… so catch us there if you are around…

Gifgrond – saturday 28th of April

This Saturday (28th of April) it is Gifgrond time again… my most favourite location / party in Holland… Europ Europ needed to cancel unfortunately but Monocorpse will replace them to shake things up with his dark beats… next to that Soft As Snow will present their contemporary new wave / shoegaze music and Hexenschuss will bring their arty post-punk live to stage…

I will spin some records before, in between and after the bands… and if people like to dance maybe even to late…

Koffie Leute

Koffie Leute in Utrecht (NL) is a place to drink quality coffee and tea… recently they opened a second space next to the former one… here they also sell vinyls from local labels and bands and serve you a nice lunch…

Tomorrow we will record the Radio Resistencia show there for the first time… this time only the four of us from the radio show crew spinning vinyls… maybe next time also with one or more live acts…

If you are around we will play music for you from 14:00 hour to 18:00 hour…

Dark ambient

Even though winter is over and spring is here I am still a bit in a dark ambient mood… this weekend is the Phobos Festival in Germany with Raison d’être vs Troum headlining the night… looking forward to that one!

To get (in) the mood you can find my mix I did for Radio Resistencia for the January episode below… it is all about ambient and dark ambient… happy dreams!
