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…

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…

 

Artelettronica

Yet another guest mix/podcast is online since a few days. This one we did for the podcast series Artelettronica. Their focus is on more industrial minded sounds… so we took that as a starting point… expect rhythms, noises, screams and so on… anything dark and heavy and distorted but no techno… only real industrial music…

DUSK.

Just before summer kicked in we delivered a guest mix for Amsterdam based organisation DUSK. They host a podcast series and have plans for future live events. As always Alacidus and I did a back2back mix as Enfant Terrible… with vinyls only of course…

We did end up with a pretty heavy mix of dark techno, fierce acid, pounding EBM and harsh elektro…

You can enjoy it here…

Dark Science Electro

Alacidus and me did a 100% elektro set back 2 back for Dark Science Electro… of course as always vinyl only… it was a bit going back to our roots… so great fun… and fun to re-discover some artists and tunes… you can listen our podcast / mixtape below…

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…
