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…

 

Staatseinde K7

Staatseinde released a second tape on their own Ende Der Zukunft Recordings label. The first one was an overview of past to present never released tracks. This new tape is one filled with tracks they did with various other artists… the funny thing is that this release feels much more coherent as the previous one… despite all the different collaborations which are showcased here…

You get 11 tracks by Staatseinde teaming up with the likes of Sololust, Lovaratrax, Arpatle, Butsenzeller, Wout Waanders and more…

Stand out tracks are the three featured did with Dutch poet Wout Waanders… the tracks are great music wise… but the spoken word kind of vocal delivery also really adds something… the pieces are quite dark and have a great flow… so I hope Staatseinde will be doing more in this style in the near future…

You can check this tape on the Staatseinde Bandcamp webpage here…

Red Light Radio

Tomorrow (Saturday 30th of September) the Radio Resistencia crew will be at Red Light Radio in Amsterdam for a 3 hour show… we start at 12:00 hours and end at 15:00 hours… you can tune in here… and of course this will also be recorded for Intergalactic FM…

Sololust will perform live and I and Alacidus and Andy Dufter will play some records… sounds like a great warming up for a Saturday afternoon to me…

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…
