CRVR live at Radio Resistencia

Sunday the 30th of April there will be a Radio Resistencia recording session at Kapitaal in Utrecht.

Live performing will be CRVR (Crever) from The Netherlands… this is an elektro-industrial project with sounds ranging from rhythmic and noisy to more mellow and ambient like… here is a piece performed live at SOTU festival in Amsterdam last year…

Kapitaal is now located at Snorfabriek so you can find us there… we start at 15:00 hours and will end around 18:00 hours.

dj M. – Lesson#74

The latest mix I posted on my mixcloud was recorded for, and as part of, the April episode of Radio Resistencia… it was recorded at a private location as we are currently out of a fixed place… but this will change soon I hope…

This dj set is built around ambient and experimental sounds from dreamy to ritual and contemporary folklore tunes from archaic to freeform… and features the likes of Ekin Fil, Gouffre, Ensync, AGE, Wermut and more…

Lend Me Your Underbelly (again)

I wrote before on Lend Me Your Underbelly… a Dutch one man band in love with psychedelic music… most of his work until now is with electric guitar with lots of effects and electronics… but there is a new album coming up with a more acoustic focus…

The title is quite fitting as this new album will be called “Campfire Ballads”… the songs are all quite long with a prominent acoustic guitar and some other acoustic instruments and electronics and effects on the side… so not 100% campfire tunes… only for the better in my opinion!

You could describe the sound of the album as lo-fi ambient folk but basically this psychedelic music… to keep it simple…

Below is a preview of one full track… the album will be out on the 22nd of February…

Enfant Terrible at Grasnapolsky

Next week Enfant Terrible will host a part of the program at Grasnapolsky festival… a 7 hour long sessions will be held at the basement of the amazing Radio Kootwijk building… and all will be recorded as a Radio Resistencia show for Intergalactic FM and Concertzender…

For the time schedule is here…  and below are some previews of the live acts to get you into the mood…

FDSL (Former Descent x Sololust) will perform live their ambient sounds… here is what they did a few years back in Berlin (see 1:00 to 4:35 for FDSL)…

Roberto Auser is also part of this session… “of course” I would almost so… after the record released last year and the great performance at Gifgrond he will again perform with his modular synth… expect elektro sounds ranging from experimental to dance floor minded…

Not a member of the ET family but part of this session is Raderkraft from Amsterdam… his recent 12″ EP features uptempo minimal synth tracks which will please lovers and newcomers to the world of synth music…

And last but absolute not least Monocorpse will give acte de présence… after two great 12″ EP’s on Gooiland Elektro a third record is on its way later this year… post-techno to warm up the small after party I myself and dj Alacidus will take care of…

Zandvoort & Uilenbal

Just before Christmas I got a tape from Elektrovolt… it was a project he did  with Legowelt under the alias of Zandvoort & Uilenbal… this project is all about the Harmonium… electronics and Harmonium that is… somewhat like the Ocean Floor album… oh they also use a Trautonium… something I never heard about before… which is an early electronic instrument… you should look it up on internet… it looks great!

This tape entitled “Geruis Uit Somberdorp” (something like “Murmur From Sadville” if translated) features music from a concert originally  commissioned for Concertzender

Rather liker Ocean Floor’s album the music is a sort of ambient / drone / psychedelic soundscape kind of thing… simply great trippy and dreamy stuff… subtle electronics and a prominent Harmonium do the trick to get you into a trance like state… it is better to listen to this music as to write too much about it… so below is one of the pieces from the tape… the 12 minute long “De Ark Van Somberdorp”… just click “play” and close your eyes…

dj M. – Lesson#69

There is a new mixtape / dj set online I recorded for Radio Resistencia. It was already showed on Intergalactic FM and partly on Concertzender. This time it is a mix with sounds ranging from modern classical music and ambient to industrial, minimal electronics and techno and back to ambient and modern classical stuff… featured are amongst others Kreng, Haus Arafna, Raime, Monocorpse, Roberto Auser, Sarin, Mondkopf, Hula and Puce Mary… enjoy!
