Out now + events for March

Out now are 4 new releases… among these the delayed Silver Age People (a project by Roberto Auser and myself)… next to that a new Vrystaete release by Dutch ambient duo interbellum… this one is almost sold out here at ET HQ… only 10 copies left… but the regular (web)shops have copies in stock now…

Also out now in the second album by Neugeborene Nachtmusik… a superb piece of post-indsutrial/post-techno… and last but not leat there is the debut by Leroy Se Meurt… delivering fierce elektro-punk which will appeal to fans of old school EBM and minimal electronics…

You can find full tracks of all these releases here…

This month there are quite some events coming up… all in Holland and one in Belgium…

15 March there is a small release party for the interbellum LP… they will perform live at that occassion.

Next to that there is an Enfant Terrible weekender at the end of March with R A D K O, Leroy Se Meurt and Celldöd live and some dj sets… see here for all dates and locations…

And… as we speak I am working on the next releases… among these will be the first one in a new series / on a new sublabel…

And… and… To kill time here is a guest mix and a small interview I did for The Brvtalist…

 

Artelettronica

Yet another guest mix/podcast is online since a few days. This one we did for the podcast series Artelettronica. Their focus is on more industrial minded sounds… so we took that as a starting point… expect rhythms, noises, screams and so on… anything dark and heavy and distorted but no techno… only real industrial music…

Ich Wollte, Ich Könnte

Recently almost the complete output of Ich Wollte, Ice Könnte (IWIK) re-appeared on cd… It has been silent around this Wermut side-project since years… One vinyl album and two 7″s were released in the past… and now there is a cd bringing together the album, the first 7″, one digital compilation track and two track released on a vinyl compilation… the only thing missing is the second 7″… but that is also the only record still available / for sale for normal prices… and also you get three unreleased tracks on this disc…

IWIK was created when Invasion Planète label ask Wermut for a collaboration for a compilation… IWIK unlike Wermut staid more to one sound… While Wermut went from post-industrial to minimal-elektro to krautrock IWIK was always rather synth driven… I somewhere read this being called “funeral wave” and it sort of is… all moody, tragic, minimalistic and subtle…

This cd comes in an edition of 200 copies… 180 copies as a regular digipack and 20 copies in a special box… so most likely this will soon be another cult release like the original vinyl records from 10 years ago this cd collects… better get it now or be sorry later…

dj M. – Lesson#72 (Gifgrond one more time…)

I uploaded a new dj set on my mixcloud page… this was my opening set at Gifgrond in January and was also transmitted as part of episode 72 of Radio Resistencia…

In this mix are many 80’s tunes… ranging from rough to melodic by the likes of Robert Turman, Dr. Numa, Dark Day and so on… but also a few more contemporary artists can be found here… some projects released on the great Musamore Editions label and our very own ET family member Neugeborene Nachtmusik for example…

So enjoy this mix of minimal elektro, post-industrial and synth tunes!

Gifgrond invites Enfant Terrible (once again)…

For the third time the Gifgrond ladies invited me to curate a night of music at their absolute great event… hosted at a private location near the city center of Tilburg this is one of the best kept secrets in The Netherlands for discovering off radar music… so save the date: Saturday 14th of January… all infos are also here and here

It is great to start 2017 with this live event for Enfant Terrible… and this will also be recorded as an episode of Radio Resistencia…

Live on stage for the first time in The Netherlands are Belgian post-industrial/post-everything ensemble Embers… next to that Onont Kombar will be performing his minimal electronics live and last but not least Roberto Auser is serving his analogue elektro beats and noises… I will play some tunes before, in between and after the live acts… what a feast!

Here below some sounds to get in the mood:
