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:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

dj M. – Lesson#66

There is a new mixtape / dj set online which I recorded not too long ago… it features old school EBM, dark elektro, dark techno… all of this often spiced up with industrial tendencies so to speak… featured are tracks from Le Syndicat Electronique, Roberto Auser, Ian Martin, Utroid, Moncorpse, Blush Response and Mace. amongst others… and sorry for the skipping in one track… that is what you get with old vinyl records that you have played too many times…

Out now: Roberto Auser, Utroid and Monocorpse

It took some time… more time as expected… but this seems to be the normal way to go these days… Anyway… out now are the three awaited records by Roberto Auser, Utroid and Monocorpse…

Roberto Auser serves minimal electronics/elektro as it should sound… raw and analogue… Utroid spoils us with new beat and early techno influenced acid… and last but not least Monocorpse delivers some dark and ritual electronic music… you can find the second video from the Monocorpse EP here below…

All three records come in screen printed sleeves which are handprinted by me and Roberto Auser at Kapitaal in Utrecht.

You can order the records at the ET webshop or get them shortly from the usual suspects around the globe…

Roberto Auser live set for Radio Resistencia

During the last Radio Resistencia episode Roberto Auser performed live… and live means live… so all hardware and no laptops…

Also this live set was improvised with sounds related to the upcoming EP “Faceless Future” on Enfant Terrible… but no track performed live was one on one from this EP… Poured out over the listeners was pure analogue minimal electronics… just like the record is going to be…

Below is the live set… enjoy!

Roberto Auser – Faceless Future EP

Somewhere early January Roberto Auser and I went by car to Rotterdam…during the way back he played me some demo’s he had been working on… afterwards he sent me all the tracks to listen to again… from my initial idea of doing a 7″ release it went to three 7″s to a 12″ EP… and the last one is now at the pressing plant…

This EP is entitled “Faceless Future” and contains 6 tracks with pure analogue old school minimal electronics… from rhythm based elektro tracks for the dancefloor to more experimental soundscapes…

The record pays tribute to pioneers of industrial music and early experimental elektro such as early Cabaret Voltaire and Front 242 but also to the more modern new wave of minimal electronics as re-invented by Le Syndicat Electronique…

“Faceless Future” is expected before summer and comes in a silk screened sleeve… of course printed by myself and Roberto Auser himself at Kapitaal in Utrecht… you can pre-order it here…

To kill the time until the release I uploaded a video of one track and a full track preview of another one… both are here below… enjoy!

Roberto Auser

ausland_logoThis week I had a meeting with Roberto Auser (who is also in Kaval)… this as he will be doing the design and styling of Enfant Terrible records together with me from now on… first thing we are working on is the new design for Gooiland Elektro… so starting with Gooiland 20 (coming before summer) the Gooiland records will have a new look and feel…

Anyway he gave me the third release on his own Ausland Records… the final part of the trilogy by Roberto Auser… which is truly an impressive body of work…

The three 12″ EP’s take you by the hand and leads you through different places in the world of Ausland… it starts with a trip to a weird tropical place with “Future Exotica”… jungle sounds and synth sounds go hand in hand in a soundtrack for a trippy sci-fi film about a future past?

After this “Darkness Walks” mixes electronics with some jazzy influences to fit a film noir context for sure… the jazzy part is even more articulated in the new and last EP entitled “The New Dimension”…  about of Dale Cooper Quartet can be found here but also more weird psychedelic touches are there… feeling like you are transported back to a wild 60’s party…

Intended as a trilogy and ending with a record called “The New Dimension” one can only guess what will be next…

Here is one piece from the “Future Exotica” release…
