Berlin – June, September & October

Together with åtåmåtån I have planned 3 nights at Urban Spree in Berlin. These nights are called Dark Beats ~ Cold Waves and will focus on just that… There will always be one live act from Enfant Terrible and one live act from åtåmåtån… and both me and the other label boss will play some tunes…

Musically expect everything fitting the dark beats and cold waves theme and the focus of åtåmåtån and Enfant Terrible… so synth stuff, elektro, EBM, minimal, new wave, post-punk and more…

Consider these nights “work in progress”… we will see how they go and evolve… if we like how they turn out we will continue with these in the future…

Out now and delayed

Finally ready are the TWINS – Make Life Before You 7″ and the Sololust – Dato EP 12″… but due to the pressing plant the Silver Age People 12″ EP is delayed… and it will only be ready in 2019 together with the next releases…

So I will start shipping the TWINS and Sololust from now on… you can expect it at the usual shops and of course it is  also available at the ET webshop.

For the Sololust you can find all infos are here…  And two full tracks are here:

All infos for the TWINS are here…  And you can listen to both tracks here:

Brokntoys

A new guestmix / podcast is online… this one we did for Brokntoys… a label from London… they also do a radio show and host a podcast series…

Our mix features a lot of Enfant Terrible stuff but also Aphex Twin and Polygon Window for example… It is an eclectic mix of electronics sounds… rather beat driven I guess… It is posted below… enjoy!

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…
