I really like the fact that the two Alic dudes stood true to their own style and consequently kept on pursuing their very own vision of Electronic Dance Music. There are too many boys and girls out there who just take part in the big Techno-Monopoly game, obeying its self-oscillating rules and diligently creating reproductions of what is hip in the ludicrously hyped clubs of Berlin. In refreshing contrast, this duo specialized on the rare genre of Psychedelic Techno, creating dramatic, mysterious, yes cinematic soundscapes based on hard, twisted and frequently also experiemental beat structures. But take a listen yourself, here we go with their well-made recent live set promo!
Wow, only few days after I discovered the stunnig new Guts mixtape, here we go with another superb mixture of laid-back good-mood sounds… Kabanjak, also known as Deela and one half of the Ancient Astronauts, is undoubtedly one of the most productive and innovative German producers in the field of dubby, funky and easy music, disrespecting any style borders. So his recent Dub To Go EP is defintely worth a listen, too, and his debut solo album coming up on Switchstance Recordings might propably turn out to be… dope shit!
Just discovered the work of Android Jones, the dude who is also resonsible for the main stage decoration concept of this year’s Boom festival… very impressing psychedelic art, looking forward to experience it live in Portugal!
Big, not to say huge news from the Extra Easy Music front: French grandmaster Guts is back with another episode of his stunnig mixtapes! The last one is filed under my very, very carfully selected all time favs and this one is an absolutely worthy successor. A remarkable smooth mixture of Hip Hop, Reggae, Funk and funny, curious sounds, varied but stringent and all above easy as it can be. Pura Mixtura No. 4 is brought to you by AnalogLife.fr in 320 kbit MP3 quality and if you enjoy it only half as much as I do, you should consider donating some pennies for this dude to keep this awsome mixtape series running. If you want, you can even purchase a CD or a real oldschool tape and support the artist in this way. Last but not least: Of course also the original tracklist presentation video is not missing!
Finally some new stuff from (Adam) Freeland, in fact the first one after his stunning, timeless masterpiece album Cope. Promising sounds, a digital EP with various remixes of this track will be out in July.
Simply stunning graffiti arts from French Toulouse, captured by Thias (°-°) – Check out his Flickr page for more amazing shots! Huge ups not only for the photographer but of course also for these amazing artists: Keyler, Spazm, Nuans x2, Deba, Atom, Dspri, Corail, Reso and Mezy!
Born in Madrid, based on Fuerteventura but having been quite all around the globe already: Mario Entero is a passionate sportsman since his childhood which combines perfectly with his other big passion: Photography. His portfolio contains lots of activities that have to do with the oceans but there are also other shots like nature and architecture. Everything is presented on a sophisticated and well-made hompage that is definitely worth a visit!
Vielversprechend las er sich ja, der Betreff jener Email, die heute Mittag in meinem Postfach aufschlug: 1. Hedonistischer Weltkongress. Doch kurz darauf wurde ich stutzig, als es nämlich in der Nachricht zum Sinn und Zweck des angesetzten Treffens hieß: “Dabei werden theoretische Fundamente diskutiert, neue Aktionsformen erprobt, zukünftige gesellschaftliche Konflikte erörtert und alternative Möglichkeiten politischer Intervention debattiert“. Kann ein derart verkopftes Gebären und seine ritualisierte Heraufbeschwörung von im Nebel der Zukunft verborgenen Eventualitäten negativer Natur tatsächlich als “hedonistisch” bezeichnet werden? Nun, der Hedonistic Freelancer meint hierzu zumindest “Nö!” und geht doch lieber zum Strand. Wo im übrigen jeden Tag ein gar prächtiger Hedonistischer Weltkongress stattfindet.
