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…

 

Roberto Auser for Phormix

Recently Roberto Auser was invited to do a mix / podcast for Phormix from Athens… before him I myself and Enfant Terrible related artists Ian Martin, Monocorpse and TWINS already did mixes for this great platform for dark/obscure electronic sounds for the dance floor and beyond…

Included in the mix by Roberto Auser are tracks from upcoming releases he has planned on various labels… it also includes two tracks he and I are working on for a new project who are doing together…

You can listen to the podcast below…

Re-opening of Kapitaal / closing dj set

This saturday the 11th of November Kapitaal is re-opening in Utrecht. After closing the former location and being temporary at another one they have found an amazing new space quite close to the city center and the central station…

I guess the printing workspace will be crowded soon again with people using the different printing techniques Kapitaal offers…

Also expected to be crowded will be the re-opening party… in the afternoon there is a program as part of the Le Mini Who? A free offshoot of the Le Guess Who? festival in Utrecht. In the evening there is the official re-opening party of Kapitaal… and the theme is girl music…

I will be doing the closing set of the night from about 01:00 hour onwards… I will keep the theme in mind and give the set a “female touch” but for sure I will put also some masculine tunes in it… and… I invited Roberto Auser to play back-to-back with me…

Printing time again

Yesterday I started printing the sleeves of the upcoming releases… four sleeves have to be done i total and one is finished now… together with Roberto Auser I printed the LCN sleeve at the new place of Kapitaal in Utrecht… as the new print studio at this location is not set up yet we had to improvise a bit… but the sleeve came out well… so one down… three to go… two more screen printed sleeves and one I will do with a risograph machine… more news when there is…

Enfant Terrible at Grasnapolsky

Next week Enfant Terrible will host a part of the program at Grasnapolsky festival… a 7 hour long sessions will be held at the basement of the amazing Radio Kootwijk building… and all will be recorded as a Radio Resistencia show for Intergalactic FM and Concertzender…

For the time schedule is here…  and below are some previews of the live acts to get you into the mood…

FDSL (Former Descent x Sololust) will perform live their ambient sounds… here is what they did a few years back in Berlin (see 1:00 to 4:35 for FDSL)…

Roberto Auser is also part of this session… “of course” I would almost so… after the record released last year and the great performance at Gifgrond he will again perform with his modular synth… expect elektro sounds ranging from experimental to dance floor minded…

Not a member of the ET family but part of this session is Raderkraft from Amsterdam… his recent 12″ EP features uptempo minimal synth tracks which will please lovers and newcomers to the world of synth music…

And last but absolute not least Monocorpse will give acte de présence… after two great 12″ EP’s on Gooiland Elektro a third record is on its way later this year… post-techno to warm up the small after party I myself and dj Alacidus will take care of…
