Neugeborene Nachtmusik live at Radio Resistencia

This Thursday the 22nd of September there is a new Radio Resistencia recording session at Kapitaal in Utrecht (NL)… this time straight from Berlin we have Neugeborene Nachtmusik performing live…

Followers of Enfant Terrible activities will know Neugeborene Nachtmusik of course… he became part of the family with his project Milligram Retreat and continued under his new alias ever since…

Music wise Neugeborene Nachtmusik is hard to define… his music features elements of elektro, (post) industrial, techno, krautrock and ambient … but all in te mix makes up for a sound of its own… most of the time sounding rather dark and (spi)ritual…

The sessions start at 20.00 hour and ends at 23.00 hour and features me  and dj Alacidus playing some tunes before and after the live set by Neugeborene Nachtmusik… entrance is free and beers are cheap…

Here is one the tracks from the album…

dj M. – Lesson#67

Here is the dj set I recorded just before summer as part of a Radio Resistencia episode for Intergalactic FM… it features classic 90’s and 00’s electro-industrial, EBM, goth, industrial and more and a few 80’s classics… expect some real dancefloor favourites from the likes of Suicide Commando, Velvet Acid Christ, Will, Haus Arafna and Black House…

dj M. – Lesson#66

There is a new mixtape / dj set online which I recorded not too long ago… it features old school EBM, dark elektro, dark techno… all of this often spiced up with industrial tendencies so to speak… featured are tracks from Le Syndicat Electronique, Roberto Auser, Ian Martin, Utroid, Moncorpse, Blush Response and Mace. amongst others… and sorry for the skipping in one track… that is what you get with old vinyl records that you have played too many times…

Onmens

onmensLPOnmens is quite a new outfit from Belgium… last year they released two albums… of which one, entitled “Witruimte”, is also available on vinyl…

This duo is armed with electronics, electric guitar and voice/screams… sort of the same line-up as legendary Belgian EBM pioneers The Neon Judgement… Onmens is maybe a bit weirder and with more of a punk punch to it… although of course the first stuff from The Neon Judgement was also rather punk influenced… so yes… Onmens could be seen as working in the tradition of this influential 80’s band…

The electronic beats of Onmens are rough and in your face and the vocals are mostly delivered in screams… but the ten songs on the “Witruimte” are still quite diverse… from uptempo tunes to more weird and a bit vague and trippy pieces… both in sound and in madness the band reminds me at times of PIA fRAUS… of which Embers (see their “Kout EP” on ET) is an offspring…

Also the band shares instruments/line-up, sound and attitude with the Dutch duo Aux Raus (now defunct)… but Onmens is Belgian and Aux Raus was Dutch… so expect industrial/EBM/weird influences instead of hardcore gabber stuff in the sound of Onmens…

I recommend to keep an eye out for Onmens… both for new material as for live shows… promising stuff for the future! And… I have a few copies of the “Witruimte” vinyl LP in the webshop

And… here is video/track from the album… enjoy!

dj M. – Lesson#11

Here is a last mixtape / dj set from my archives before the summertime really kicks in… this is a mix from a few years ago… minimal electronics… rather noisy, industrial and punky… featuring stuff like Enema Syringe, Ich Bin, ICK, Blasterkorps, Maria Zerfall, Commando Laarz, Bastards Of Love, Le Syndicat Electronique, Europ Europ and many more… enjoy!

Monocorpse – Cease To Exist 12″ EP

Expected before summer… I think about early/mid July is a new EP by Monocorpse on Gooiland Elektro… this Dutch project blends (post-)techno, ritual and industrial sounds into spine chilling soundtracks for occult nighttime sessions…

While the first EP “Ceremonie Caille” was thematically centred around voodoo… this new EP stays closer to home while taking its theme from The Family… and in that line the first video was edited… for the truly interested I do not need to explain this video footage and all… and for the non-informed it is a nice starting point to get into this record and the theme behind it…
