Attic 61 – one more time

The night at Attic 61 last September was great and I have made posts about it already… but now the aftermovie is ready (see below)… it brings back the good energy of the night… and for those not there… now you can get idea of what you missed out on…

Hex

From 2003 to 2008 I was involved with a parties series called Hex. These parties started after I had quite my involvement with the Gruis parties in Utrecht. The Hex nights found a home at OCCII in Amsterdam and had a focus in all things new wave and post-punk… from batcave to NDW to minimal electronics and often also beyond…

Many bands had their (Dutch) live debut there… or otherwise did a rare live show: Agent Side Grinder, Frustration, Schwefelgelb, Sixteens, Black Ice, Wermut, Echo West, Solitude FX, Hval Mus, It&My Computer, Cheveu, SaraLunden, Vanishing, Swann Danger, and so on…

Hex was quite legendary these days… people from Belgium, Germany and France came over just for the nights…  and still nowadays I sometimes come across people who still remember these parties…

Recently some footage popped up on Youtube so I ripped it for my private archive… but I also put it online on my Youtube channel and posted it below… just for old times sake and for melancholy moments when it seems that all good things lie in the past…

dj M. – Lesson#72 (Gifgrond one more time…)

I uploaded a new dj set on my mixcloud page… this was my opening set at Gifgrond in January and was also transmitted as part of episode 72 of Radio Resistencia…

In this mix are many 80’s tunes… ranging from rough to melodic by the likes of Robert Turman, Dr. Numa, Dark Day and so on… but also a few more contemporary artists can be found here… some projects released on the great Musamore Editions label and our very own ET family member Neugeborene Nachtmusik for example…

So enjoy this mix of minimal elektro, post-industrial and synth tunes!
