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. for Phormix

Last monday my mix for the wonderful Phormix podcast series was published… it includes the upcoming Gooiland Elektro releases and quite some tracks from ET records planned for the nearby future… and some personal favourites from the past and present of ET/Gooiland… the mix is posted below…

 

Gifgrond (again) – saturday 18th November

This January we kicked off the year with a party at Gifgrond… and now we return to this awesome spot in Tilburg (NL) to sort of close the year…

The line-up features Staatseinde and Garçon Taupe… both Dutch projects that recently released records on Enfant Terrible… so I consider this a delayed release party for these acts…

Staatseinde will bring their elektro pop live in stage and Garçon Taupe will perform live his acid trax…

Next to that TWINS from the USA will kick off his first European tour that night… his latest album from last year (Rather Not, Enfant Terrible 2016) got great feedback due to the original blending of styles like elektro, EBM, new wave, post-punk and more… A new 7″ is planned for the first part of 2018… also on Enfant Terrible…

Throughout the night I will spin records… and hopefully there will be some dancers / clubbers to close to night with…

 

ADEV

Yesterday me and Alacidus played back 2 back during the ADEV rally… it was an absolute great opportunity  for us the play music we cannot play at many places… the streetrave was all about attention for the subcultural roots of dance music culture and the more edgy and adventurous aspects of contemporary dance music for which there is almost no space at ADE… neither at many venues and festivals in general these days…

Next to that ADEV was this year about retaining and saving ADM, a cultural free haven in Amsterdam which is threatened by real estate agencies…

We selected some of our favourite classics and contemporary tracks in the field of techno music… meaning we played only hard and brutal tracks…  and had a lot of fun doing so…

Fight for your right to party!
