Mixcloud

ET_Vinyl_handjeToday I discovered I already had a Mixcloud page since 3 years… I had totally forgotten about it… the reason I went to the Mixcloud website was obvious… I wanted to start a page there… this to post a monthly dj set… mostly this will be the dj set I do for Radio Resistencia at Intergalactic FM…

This as not everybody is able to tune in when the show is on the air… and not everybody can find the archive… or wants to listen from the archive… and besides that I like my dj sets to be a little more available / “out there”…

The dj sets I do for Radio Resistencia are different every month… I always play what I am listening to at that moment… which differs every month… sometimes every week…

So today I posted the dj set I did for the show which was supposed to be aired last night… but something went wrong and it was never on air in the end… so now it is here… or look below this post to play it right away… it is filled with ambient, experimental soundscape stuff as well as a few more pop things… all in the mix and all played from vinyl of course…

There is another dj set (posted 3 years ago…) at the page which I will probably delete real soon… and the monthly dj sets will also be deleted from time to time to make space for new ones…

You can also play my current set right here below…

Petit Enfant series return: Sololust, Europ Europ and Staatseinde

Staatseinde_cvrIt has been has been four years since the last record was released in the Petit Enfant series… the 7 inch series with a focus on all things synth pop… from minimal synth sounds to coldwave and darkwave… and from synth punk to a bit more weird and edgy minimal electronics…

And… to celebrate the return of this series three records are released at the same time… all classic 7 inches on 45 rpm… all three with familiar names from the Enfant Terrible family: Sololust, Europ Europ and Staasteinde.

Sololust returns with a true future classic and instant dancefloor favorite for the specialized dance nights out there… and on the flip side a superb melancholy minimal tune… Europ Europ have never before sounded so rhythmic…but their typical (post)-industrial style is also there of course… resulting in two tracks of weird post-industrial disco… Staatseinde has seen some personnel changes… and only for the better in my opinion… on this record they present their new more electronic sound… Neue Holländische Welle version 2.0…

All artwork will be printed (Risograph and silk screen) at Kapitaal in Utrecht… so these records will be true collector pieces (again)…

Full track previews are available now on the ET sound cloud…

The records are expected at the end of October… and a release party is in the making… and next to that Sololust and Staatseinde will perform live at Radio Resistencia at Kapitaal on sunday 18th of October and Europ Europ on sunday 22nd of November…

Radio Resistencia with live Monocorpse

flyer_kapitaal_juli_2015This sunday 19th of July the last Radio Resistencia session before the summer break will be recorded… live performing will be Monocorpse… who will present his upcoming EP ‘Ceremonie Caille’… I will play some records and dj Alacidus will also be spinning some tunes…

Entrance is free and drinks are cheap… as always on sunday afternoon from 15.00 hour until 18.00 hour at Kapitaal in Utrecht, Holland…

Radio Resistencia with live Ian Martin

RR_logoThis sunday (21st of June 2015) a new Radio Resistencia session is taking place… as always we record the show live at Kapitaal Utrecht in Utrecht… and it will be narrowcasted on monday 6th of July at Intergalactic FM (IFM1)…

Live performing will be Ian Martin… of course know from his releases on Bunker and Panzerkreuz… and of being part of Kaval. Some of his music is rather ambient orientated… spacey synth stuff… but at other times he serves some raw beats… we expect the beats this time…

Playing some tunes from vinyl before and after the live session of Ian Martin will be me (dj M.) and Andy Dufter (Staatseinde / Lesbian Mouseclicks)…

The recording session is open to a small audience and you can get some drinks for cheap prices… entrance is free… so all in all quite a good way to spend your lazy sunday afternoon… we start at 15.00 hour and end at 18.00 hour…

Radio Resistencia with live Lend Me Your Underbelly

RR_logoThis sunday (17th of May 2015) is the next Radio Resistencia session at Kapitaal in Utrecht. Most of the time we have live acts from within The Netherlands… but this time it is even a musician from the city of Utrecht: Lend Me Your Underbelly. See here for a little piece I wrote about this lo-fi / psychedelic project recently.

Just last week Lend Me Your Underbelly presented his new, and second, album “Hover”. Just to get in the mood here is a video / track from this album…

The session starts at 15.00 hour and ends at 18.00 hour and entrance is free and drinks are cheap…

A week in images

Several things went on the past few days… so here is a short update on all of
that…

Last sunday Diamantener Oberhof performed live at Radio Resistencia… it was the first ever concert by this German Dada folklore duo… the session will be narrowcasted on Intergalactic FM on IFM1 on Monday 4th of May from 22.00 CET onwards… here is picture of their performance… DO_live_Kapitaal_april2015

Next to that the albums by Neugeborene Nachtmusik and Tobias Bernstrup were released… I am still in the middle of shipping them around… but they are starting to arrive at shops and private orders already… here is teaser/promo video for the release…

Embers did get great feedback on their mini album but had some personnel changes which prevented them to perform live the last couple of months… but they are back! They have two different live line-up’s now… one as a duo with the electronic sound as on the record and one with an additional live drummer and an acoustic oriented sound…. they did a try-out concert with this new line-up at my favourite Belgium record shop Wool-E-shop… see here and listen here how this looks and sounds…

And… even though the new records still have to shipped partly I am already busy with getting the next records to the pressing plant… one of these will be a 12″ by Dutch dark/occult techno project Monocorpse… here is a video of one of the tracks featured on this 12″…
