The Brvtalist

I did a mix for The Brvtalist to showcase 15 years of ET… but instead of looking backwards I did a mix with music yet to be released on ET… and a few tracks which are part of the records just out now (Neugeborene Nachtmusik and Silver Age People)…(other) artists featured are Monocorpse, Roberto Auser, Sturqen,  Futuro de Hierro, Unhuman and FOQL…

There is also a small interview attached to the mix… you can read that Q&A here…

Dark rave – 1 February

On Friday the 1st of February we will host a dark rave at Attic 61 (see the posts on the event there last September. This is the first party we play at this year… we had a short break… which was needed…

But… expect a night of harsh and dark beats like we always play… we being Alacidus and myself back 2 back… vinyl only of course…

Also Utroid and Roberto Auser will do live sets with more pounding beats and dark sounds…

The Attic 61 people have curated art pieces… and the location is again the old morgue of the former decomposed physics laboratorium in Amsterdam…

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…
