Blog: Revolutions per day

Out now: R A D K O, Bebe Fang, Monocorpse and The Untitled

Out now are the latest four releases on Enfant Terrible, Vrystaete and Gooiland Elektro.

On Gooiland Elektro Monocorpse and The Untitled have appeared. Monocorpse already with this third 12″ EP and The Untitled with his debut on Gooiland Elektro/Enfant Terrible. Of course The Untitled has released way more before on his own label and other labels… check out his harsh acid/techno music here…

Monocorpse delivers his finest (in my opinion) EP up till now… a strange mix of soundtrack and dance floor minded stuff… like always dark and moody… you can find all the infos and sound previews here… and check out a video for this record below…

R A D K O from Italo deliver their debut 7″ with two tracks which border new wave, cold wave, shoegaze and even indie music in some ways… there is a video below and all infos are to be found here…

On Vrystaete comes the Bebe Fang LP… a personal favourite of mine… a haunting mix of lo-fi, ambient, folklore, ritual and psychedelic music… something I would like to invite you to explore yourself… get a taste of it here…

RX-101 and (not so) slow acid

I am a long time fan of Suction Records from Canada… it is even among the labels through which I started to listen to elektro music… sort of recently RX-101 was discovered by the label boss and he started releasing the music of this Dutch 1990’s project…

For me this artist was totally new… it fits the IDM stuff Suction already released perfectly… it times it sounds very Rephlex like… and the name is cool… being taken from the Roland SH-101 synth…

Already four 12″ EP’s were released… the first two in 2016 and last year two more came out… one a bit IDM inspired and with some synth stuff… the other a great EP filled with acid trax…

The first two EP’s are compiled on a CD and the second two on another CD… ant through this CD is discovered I  was playing the acid 12″ too slow… I played it at 33 RPM all the time since it arrived… and it sounded wicked… especially the slow(er) stuff… but when I played the CD I discovered the tracks were faster… and I checked the sleeve of the 12″… it said quit big 45 RPM… so well… I think I stick to the slower speed anyway as the tracks sound so great that way…

M – Lesson#81

Online now is the opening dj set I did at the last ET night at Gifgrond… it is mix filled with all kinds of elektro sounds… EBM influenced, post-punk kind of and also synth pop inspired… a bit like what I used to play at the Hex parties… artists include Le Syndicat Electronique, Bastards Of Love, Bakterielle Infektion, Thorofon, Ich Bin amongst others…

You can listen to it on my mixcloud or here below…

Ich Wollte, Ich Könnte

Recently almost the complete output of Ich Wollte, Ice Könnte (IWIK) re-appeared on cd… It has been silent around this Wermut side-project since years… One vinyl album and two 7″s were released in the past… and now there is a cd bringing together the album, the first 7″, one digital compilation track and two track released on a vinyl compilation… the only thing missing is the second 7″… but that is also the only record still available / for sale for normal prices… and also you get three unreleased tracks on this disc…

IWIK was created when Invasion Planète label ask Wermut for a collaboration for a compilation… IWIK unlike Wermut staid more to one sound… While Wermut went from post-industrial to minimal-elektro to krautrock IWIK was always rather synth driven… I somewhere read this being called “funeral wave” and it sort of is… all moody, tragic, minimalistic and subtle…

This cd comes in an edition of 200 copies… 180 copies as a regular digipack and 20 copies in a special box… so most likely this will soon be another cult release like the original vinyl records from 10 years ago this cd collects… better get it now or be sorry later…

Closing set Gifgrond dj M.

Last month the Enfant Terrible label night at Gifgrond was a blast. After the live performances by Staatseinde, TWINS and Garçon Taupe I finished the night with some tunes to dance to… it was a mix of elektro-wave, post-punk, new beat and more…  you can listen to it below/on mixcloud…
