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…

Max Dahlhaus video

One of the tracks on the upcoming Gooiland Elektro compilation is an industrial influenced and dark techno banger by Max Dahlhaus from Berlin… despite the harshness of the tune it is also very much a rave track pur sang…

The musician himself made an abstract video for the track…. it is posted below…

Intergalactic FM Fest

Intergalactic FM does a yearly festival and this year it is even more festive as they celebrate 10 years of going strong…

The festival is taking place in and around the IFM HQ in The Hague (NL)… and it goes on for 4 days… on friday (18th of May) and saturday (19th of May) Alacidus and I will play back2back dj sets as “Enfant Terrible”… so catch us there if you are around…

R A D K O – Orgon

Earlier this year I released the R A D K O debut 7″… the Italian duo returns now with a new track and video… the video is again done by Lissa Benno like the previous video… the track will be part of the next release… which the band is working now… so until it is here you can enjoy “Orgon”…

 

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…

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…
