Utroid will perform live at Radio Resistencia at Kapitaal in Utrecht (NL) this thursday (21-07-2016)… the Dutch (Utrecht based) elektro/techno producer will present his upcoming EP on Gooiland Elektro… expect dark beats and acidic sounds to celebrate summer… dj M. and dj Alacidus will finish the job with tunes before and after the live performance…

We start at 20.00 hour and quit at 23.00 hour… entrance is for free and drinks are served cold at the bar…

Here are two Utroid tracks from the upcoming record to get in the mood…

Roberto Auser live set for Radio Resistencia

During the last Radio Resistencia episode Roberto Auser performed live… and live means live… so all hardware and no laptops…

Also this live set was improvised with sounds related to the upcoming EP “Faceless Future” on Enfant Terrible… but no track performed live was one on one from this EP… Poured out over the listeners was pure analogue minimal electronics… just like the record is going to be…

Below is the live set… enjoy!

Roberto Auser – Faceless Future EP

Somewhere early January Roberto Auser and I went by car to Rotterdam…during the way back he played me some demo’s he had been working on… afterwards he sent me all the tracks to listen to again… from my initial idea of doing a 7″ release it went to three 7″s to a 12″ EP… and the last one is now at the pressing plant…

This EP is entitled “Faceless Future” and contains 6 tracks with pure analogue old school minimal electronics… from rhythm based elektro tracks for the dancefloor to more experimental soundscapes…

The record pays tribute to pioneers of industrial music and early experimental elektro such as early Cabaret Voltaire and Front 242 but also to the more modern new wave of minimal electronics as re-invented by Le Syndicat Electronique…

“Faceless Future” is expected before summer and comes in a silk screened sleeve… of course printed by myself and Roberto Auser himself at Kapitaal in Utrecht… you can pre-order it here…

To kill the time until the release I uploaded a video of one track and a full track preview of another one… both are here below… enjoy!

Gooiland Elektro update

Gooiland_Elektro_BIG

Already announced is a new Monocorpse 12″ EP… see the video posted below… next to that there is another release coming upon Gooiland Elekro… one by Utroid… hailing from Utrecht, The Netherlands… known before as Funxiun and BS-1… playing harsh elektro and techno before… and still doing that but in a more minimal way…

The EP “The Movement” is features four New Beat and acid influenced pieces… from rough and harsh beats to trippy and spacey tracks… all excellent stuff for the dancefloor…  promised!

Below is one full track preview… the record is expected before summer…

new dj set / mixtape

I posted a new dj set / mixtape on my mixcloud a few days ago… and it seems some music lovers and listeners out there like it a lot… it is a mix featuring post-industrial, elektro, techno and trippy (modular) synth stuff…

This mix was recorded as part of an episode for Radio Resistencia which is narrowcasted every first monday of the month on Intergalatic FM at IFM1 from 22.00 set onwards…

Here is the mix:

 

Umwelt

umweltThe French elektro/techno/electronix project Umwelt first caught my attention with his 12″ EP “La Nouvelle Chair” from 2004 on Kommando 6. And I must confess that quite soon after that I quite lost this project out of sight…

A few years ago for one reason or another I came across his music again… but what really got me into it like before was the second split 10″ the musician released on his own Rave Or Die label. Since then I really follow his creative output again…

Recently another split 10″ again on Rave Or Die was released and also a new EP on the other label run by the musician himself called New Flesh… both releases are truly great… the split 10″ has a massive track by Umwelt himself… raw and dirty elektro just as I love it… the other track is by French collective Minimum Syndicat… which are experts in old school techno and rave sounds… and the track on this split 10″ show this in a stunning way…

The piece is dark and dirty and raw with flashbacks to the early days of techno music… think New Beat stuff among that… still the beat is so thick and loud it is very evident a product of our current era… absolute great!

Next to that the Umwelt EP “When Future And Past Collapse” is a showcase of true elektro… again dark and dirty and raw and filled with abstract sounds and dancefloor pieces… often incorporated in the same track… this one is for fans of the old Invasion Planete stuff and Kommando 6 releases… a big tip for true elektro heads…

Here is the Minimum Syndicat track…
