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, mixtape I did, music I am listening too and inspires me and so on… stuff related one way or another to Enfant Terrible…

Berlin – June, September & October

Together with åtåmåtån I have planned 3 nights at Urban Spree in Berlin. These nights are called Dark Beats ~ Cold Waves and will focus on just that… There will always be one live act from Enfant Terrible and one live act from åtåmåtån… and both me and the other label boss will play some tunes…

Musically expect everything fitting the dark beats and cold waves theme and the focus of åtåmåtån and Enfant Terrible… so synth stuff, elektro, EBM, minimal, new wave, post-punk and more…

Consider these nights “work in progress”… we will see how they go and evolve… if we like how they turn out we will continue with these in the future…

Out now + events for March

Out now are 4 new releases… among these the delayed Silver Age People (a project by Roberto Auser and myself)… next to that a new Vrystaete release by Dutch ambient duo interbellum… this one is almost sold out here at ET HQ… only 10 copies left… but the regular (web)shops have copies in stock now…

Also out now in the second album by Neugeborene Nachtmusik… a superb piece of post-indsutrial/post-techno… and last but not leat there is the debut by Leroy Se Meurt… delivering fierce elektro-punk which will appeal to fans of old school EBM and minimal electronics…

You can find full tracks of all these releases here…

This month there are quite some events coming up… all in Holland and one in Belgium…

15 March there is a small release party for the interbellum LP… they will perform live at that occassion.

Next to that there is an Enfant Terrible weekender at the end of March with R A D K O, Leroy Se Meurt and Celldöd live and some dj sets… see here for all dates and locations…

And… as we speak I am working on the next releases… among these will be the first one in a new series / on a new sublabel…

And… and… To kill time here is a guest mix and a small interview I did for The Brvtalist…

 

The Brvtalist

I did a mix for The Brvtalist to showcase 15 years of ET… but instead of looking backwards I did a mix with music yet to be released on ET… and a few tracks which are part of the records just out now (Neugeborene Nachtmusik and Silver Age People)…(other) artists featured are Monocorpse, Roberto Auser, Sturqen,  Futuro de Hierro, Unhuman and FOQL…

There is also a small interview attached to the mix… you can read that Q&A here…

Dark rave – 1 February

On Friday the 1st of February we will host a dark rave at Attic 61 (see the posts on the event there last September. This is the first party we play at this year… we had a short break… which was needed…

But… expect a night of harsh and dark beats like we always play… we being Alacidus and myself back 2 back… vinyl only of course…

Also Utroid and Roberto Auser will do live sets with more pounding beats and dark sounds…

The Attic 61 people have curated art pieces… and the location is again the old morgue of the former decomposed physics laboratorium in Amsterdam…

15Y

This year Enfant Terrible is running for 15 years… it is not that I want to put too much emphasis on this… the current state of things is what counts… but I have seen so many labels come and go these last 15 years… and I have been in contact with so many people… and only a few of those are still here… for various reasons… and it does not make a difference  to me if I speak to these people every day, once a week or once a year… next to the records I realised with all the different musicians and all the memories of concerts, parties and meetings… in the end those few people still here are for a very big part what counts… I am quiet sure you know who you are…

And… after 15 years ET is still based on the same idealistic principles as when I started and as I have given shape to it in the manifest and activities… so expect only one thing… that I will take this furthur…

Upperberry

We recorded a guestmix for Berlin based Upperberry… this organisation is throwing parties and hosting a podcast series…

For this one we took it a little less loud and harsh as usually… but still this set is  filled with acid, dark techno and elektro… so you get served dark beats again…  as always we recorded this back 2 back without a fixed playlist… go the flow… this mix features amongst others Sololust, RTRA and Garçon Taupe… you can find the mix below or on the ET soundcloud page…
