Attic 61 – one more time

The night at Attic 61 last September was great and I have made posts about it already… but now the aftermovie is ready (see below)… it brings back the good energy of the night… and for those not there… now you can get idea of what you missed out on…

Attic 61 – after

Last Saturday we were part of the exhibition/art fair by Attic61 in Amsterdam… the location was an old decompose physics laboratory… and we did our thingy in the old morgue… the place was totally trashed and dusty… power came from a generator… how old school would you like to get it?

So the feeling and vibe was instantly amazing… a setting like this is just perfect for rough and harsh sounds… I liked all live sets by Sololust, Garçon Taupe, Roberto Auser and Monocorpse. And I think the flow the night was rather good…

Before, in between and after the live acts Alacidus and I played some vinyls… a lot of dark beats… raging from rave to techno to elektro to acid… and I really loved the crowd digging the sounds so well and being so enthusiastic…  

Simply a great night… one to remember!

Attic 61

Next event we will be part of is Attic 61: Underground Art Fair. This event takes place at an old decompose physics laboratory below Mauritskade 61 in Amsterdam.

Entrance is free so there is no reason not to experience some performance art, spoken word, visual art and more… and the Enfant Terrible crew delivers live sets by Sololust, Garçon Taupe, Roberto Auser and Monocorpse. After the live performance the Enfant Terrible dj’s are present to spin some vinyls.

The doors open at 18h and the closing time is 01h… but maybe later…

The cool promo video below was done by Monocorpse.

Kalabalik

We are almost heading  our way to Sweden for the Kalabalik pa Tyrolen Festival. This is a yearly meeting for all things synth/wave/post-punk. Their focus is on contemporary music instead of the many festivals and parties out there who tend to pay more attention to bands from the past… so Kalabalik is really fitting the ET focus when it comes to that.

Also they have an open mind and attitude when it comes to these styles/genres… another thing we have in common. Through the years quite some artists who have appeared on ET performed already at Kalabalik… so I am really happy to head over there now myself for a label showcase with 6 live acts and me and Alacidus with our record bags…  and of course I am eagerly looking forward to experience this festival with all the other great live acts…

 

Gifgrond – saturday 28th of April

This Saturday (28th of April) it is Gifgrond time again… my most favourite location / party in Holland… Europ Europ needed to cancel unfortunately but Monocorpse will replace them to shake things up with his dark beats… next to that Soft As Snow will present their contemporary new wave / shoegaze music and Hexenschuss will bring their arty post-punk live to stage…

I will spin some records before, in between and after the bands… and if people like to dance maybe even to late…

Video: Monocorpse – Being Reduced To Nothing

This week The Attic magazine / webzine premiered the new Monocorpse video… this is a video for the track “Being Reduced To Nothing” taken from the recently released 12″ vinyl EP ‘The Comfort Of Strangers’… and the second video for this record…

As always the case since the first EP and accompanying video’s Monocorpse himself is responsible for the creation of the video. He works with found footage and sampled images… creating a perfect visual representation of the dark  and suspensive mood articulated by his music…  see below for yourself…
