dj M. – Lesson#72 (Gifgrond one more time…)

I uploaded a new dj set on my mixcloud page… this was my opening set at Gifgrond in January and was also transmitted as part of episode 72 of Radio Resistencia…

In this mix are many 80’s tunes… ranging from rough to melodic by the likes of Robert Turman, Dr. Numa, Dark Day and so on… but also a few more contemporary artists can be found here… some projects released on the great Musamore Editions label and our very own ET family member Neugeborene Nachtmusik for example…

So enjoy this mix of minimal elektro, post-industrial and synth tunes!

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…

Core Shift

Recently I have been playing a lot of cd’s again… I re-discovered my collection and also some new ones arrived here at the ET HQ… among the new ones are two self-released cd’s by Dutch ambient project Core Shift…

What stands out in the music of Core Shift is a really nice blending of spacious synth sounds and tranquil rhythms… overall the mood is rather dreamy while it never lulls you to sleep…

Both records (“The Slow Shifting Of Parallel Interpretations Of Life” and “Just Some Thoughts”) are released in small editions and available through the artist himself here…

And here is a full / track video of one of the pieces from “The Slow Shifting Of Parallel Interpretations Of Life”…

dj M. – Secret Archive Mix

Not long ago I delved into my archive to see what was there for lost treasures… with my findings I did a mixtape… this dj set was recently published by the In Disarray blog/podcast platform (In Disarray 021)… now I also put it online on my mixcloud page… but you can listen to it here too…

[mixcloud https://www.mixcloud.com/EnfantTerrible/dj-m-secret-archive-mix/ width=100% height=120 hide_cover=1 light=1]

As said this mix features unreleased archive tracks from the Enfant Terrible vaults… the material ranges from 2003 up to 2015… so from the true beginnings of the label (first record was released in 2004) up to the very present…

For various reasons these tracks have not been released… some were part of records already mastered and with finished artwork but were withdrawn in the end… other pieces are tracks not selected for the final record which saw the light… and some of the music has a totally different story…

This mix also shows the range of synth sounds that finds its home on my label… from poppy minimal synth to more experimental IDM stuff… still all tracks have some key essentials typical for Enfant Terrible… the music is electronic, minimal and obscure…
