Susana P. Correia R.I.P

We just got the bad news from Penélope Martín and Beta Evers, very sad news for this end of the year 2017.

Susana P. Correia of Bushwick, New York, on Oct. 4, 2017. Beloved daughter, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, godmother and friend. Member of Zwischenwelt (with Penélope Martín, Beta Evers and Heinrich Mueller), has passed away aged 41.

https://www.discogs.com/artist/2161544-Zwischenwelt









































Here is some words from Beta and Penélope posted in Facebook:

Beta Evers:
"Me and the other members of Zwischenwelt (Heinrich Mueller, Penelope Martin) just got the sad news that our bandmate Susana P. Correia (Bushwick, New York, USA) is no longer with us. She passed away a couple of weeks ago. Between 2007-2011 we worked together on our group project Zwischenwelt; we had a lot of e-mail exchange and regular conferences on Skype during that time. She brought lots of passion, ideas and sounds into this project and also came to Germany for some real time production together with the group. For "Segunda Realidad" she did the lead vocals. She was very interested in the subject of quantum physics and paranromal phenomenons and we had interesting discussions about it. Last time we talked was when she got a video done for the vinyl release of our album "Paranormale Aktivität" on Clone Records. This video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mh3gQqwM4mQ Goodbye Susana, we will forever miss you!"

Penélope Martín:
"With great sadness and grief I must inform of the death of our good friend, Susana P. Correia (Bushwick, New York, USA), member of Zwischenwelt’s band , DJ, producer and, above all, a great person, an acupuncturist and healer, who volunteered her time in Nepal. 

A fundamental part of our band, alongside Beta Evers, Heinrich Mueller and myself, that could never be replace.


We shared a magic trip to Germany. I will always remember you with love. Will miss you forever my friend."


Gerald Donald
"The world will remember Susana P. Correia through her musical contributions"

Here is the video Beta mentioned in her Facebook post. Play it in tribute to Susana.

The story of the classic ORCH 5 (or it is ORCH 2?) by ROBERT FINK


Perhaps the first digital sample to become well known within popular music was actually a piece of Western art music, the fragment of Stravinsky’s Firebird captured within the Fairlight Computer Musical Instrument, the first digital ‘sampler’, as ‘ORCH5’.




This loud orchestral attack was made famous by Bronx DJ Afrika Bambaataa, who incorporated the sound into his seminal 1982 dance track, ‘Planet Rock’. Analysis of Kraftwerk’s ‘Trans Europe Express’, also sampled for ‘Planet Rock’, provides an interpretive context for Bambaataa’s use of ORCH5, as well as the hundreds of songs that deliberately sought to copy its sound. Kraftwerk’s concerns about the decadence of European culture and art music were not fully shared by users of ORCH5 in New York City; its sound first became part of an ongoing Afro-futurist musical project, and by 1985 was fully naturalised within the hip-hop world, no more ‘classical’ than the sound of
scratching vinyl.

To trace the early popular history of ORCH5’s distinctive effect, so crucial for early hip-hop, electro, and Detroit techno, is to begin to tell the post-canonic story of Western art music.

Germany has a very long classical music tradition.
(Ralf Hütter of Kraftwerk, 2004)
The DJ plays your favourite blasts,
Takes you back to the past –
Music’s magic! (poof)
(Afrika Bambaataa, ‘Planet Rock’, 1982)

Negocius Man - Los Viajes Especiales - Microm Records 009

"Here it is, finally I can show you without any doubt my most special work so far and that with more desire I had that the date will come, it is my most introspective work, it is an idea that has been hovering in my head for many years and in a very clear moment at the beginning on January came to my mind in a form natural way of make this work that almost come out by themselves from so much thinking, the cover, the names of the subjects, "everything" and that with few tools it was possible to achieve join all my worlds, the Electro, the Hiphop instrumental Abstract, the sound of Detroit and the atmospheres space, at the same time you can find tracks at slower rhythms than usual in my productions and longer also because they have an average 7 minutes per track because it required the way to evolve and express myself in each track, at a given moment I came to think about making a CD but gave up because it is a format that does not go with me or where I want to invest money, it's nothing new for me, and thinking digital it will continue to be without any manufacturing.

It is a focused work for listening to listen at home or in the car if you prefer, in winter but not for the club, although for a wide range of people with open minds as you can see.

After 11 months since I created it, here you have it ... Enjoy it".

BA071: Order Of The Muffin

Macedonian artist Order Of The Muffin (https://soundcloud.com/order-of-the-muffin-official) returns to Bass Agenda Recordings for a second outing with ‘City Of The Moon’. He prides himself on doing his own thing, experimenting with sound combinations, and ignoring trends and genre sensibilities.

‘City Of The Moon’ is a diverse place to visit and your senses are sparked at every turn. Industrial areas where heavy, mechanical, distorted sounds dominate; areas of beauty and serenity; hi-tech regions where lasers dance in front of your eyes; vibrant Techno clubs; and many parts where these areas blend together – there is no place like it.

Visiting the city and giving their own take on the experience are fellow Macedonian sonic solider Alavux with an infectious Techno take on ‘Thron’ and the USA’s Nuklear Prophet’s downtempo Electro remix of ‘Miss You’.

Music for The Other People Place

First three records available now in Fundamental Records bandcamp

ONLY 25 SETS AVAILABLE!


New project and new label from the creators of the 808 Box, Fundamental Records.
Strongly recommend to take some time and read about this project:
There are many details that make this project something really unique. These records will become classics if they are not already!. The music of every record is very special, also the artwork and the technic use to print each sleeve, but the concept behind this project something you need to understand, as you can read in the website everything is based in two factors:
First, to provide the artist with complete anonymity in order to create in absolute freedom.
Second, to offer the listener the work of the artist without any external distortions.
The use of words to describe or define music is a senseless task. Most of the time the intention of descriptive text is not to shed light on the work of the artist, but rather to serve as a promotional tool to drive sales and increase recognition. This often has the unfortunate result of limiting the creator and his work. Music is all we need, any other additives are completely dispensable.
This project is an experiment.
Only six artists are part of this project.
The identity of the artists involved in the project will remain private but they are free to reveal their identity after some time, even if we would prefer they didn’t (that is the reason we provide a special code in the back of each record)
• The artists involved in the project are not aware of the identity of the other artists.
During the following 12 months we will periodically release 12 records: 11 x 12″ and the last one, a special 7″
Each record is a full album, a trip into the mind of the artist. There is no need for “perfected” tracks as this is not a collection of hits compiled on a 12” for massive sales. We asked each artist to work without any limitations or expectations that their previous “sound” might impose. In this way the artist may expose ones true self in the music or choose to demonstrate another side of their creative self.

Kurt Baggaley - Remembering Infinity Ep

New EP from Kurt Baggaley on Something Happening Somewhere

Kurt Baggaley is back on Something Happening Somewhere with his trademark drawn out manifestations and trance inducing melodies. Remembering Infinity is an 8-minute ode to the limitless, waves of arpeggiated notes and subtle pads wash you away with an endless display of dazzling forms. Trading off your mentally accepted shape and exchanging it with that within us that is unbounded. On the same side we find Mattheis taking this sonic meditation to the club environment, channeling the blissful experience to our inner dancer. Stretching, bending and condensing the sonic tapestry. 

On the B-side Kurt Baggaley shows a different side with electro slow burner ‘Under It’s Watchful Eye’. Packing a more sinister vibe while peaking inside our Orwellian society, it slowly unveils a more mature reflection. Completing the story is Awanto3, reworking the digital only ‘Detect’ into a house injected vibey piece. Think scrungy vocoders, rumbling drum computers and walking bass lines.

The origins of... BASS JUNKIE!

from Phil Klein aka Bass Junkie, soundcloud:

"So here they are, some of the early demo trax that I sent to Dynamix II Records (also Rephlex Records later in 93) circa 91/92. These were compiled from cassette tapes that were recently discovered in my sister's house (she keeps everything) and would have been recorded from original cassettes I would have made back in the day, hence the low fi quality. Some of these trax were eventually released as is or with some alterations, others never saw the light of day. For example Robotechno, the first track I recorded in my home studio set up, originally had a vocoder rap using my Roland VP330, but I haven't managed to locate that version unfortunately.
I have picked out what I consider the better or most relevant trax here and left the rest to time... There was another cassette full of more music circa 92/93+ that I have yet to find. If it turns up I will upload the best of those too. These trax are as they appeared on the cassettes and I haven't altered them in any way whatsoever".

KRAFTWERK: Computer World Tour
























(click to enlarge the picture)
A
First, there are two analogue sequencers which will produce up to sixty-four notes. The many rows of switches have 'in, shift and stop' settings for trigger, rest and reset points, as well as pitch control. The sequence can run as two x 32 in parallel or 1 x 64 in series. LED indicators can be clearly seen from the audience during operation. The triggers can be outputted wherever Ralf desires, generally to the console instruments (except Karl's who prefers to play manual bass lines).
So here is the secret of Kraftwerk's superb synchronisation throughout their performance. "Remember, we have been playing this kind of synchronised music for about ten years. To play along with machines is very difficult - a lot of people speed up or slow down when doing it. Our 'dialogue' with the machines is to choose whenever we want the machine or human pulse. Although we don't yet have the perfect set-up, the 'friendship' or inter-relationship we create with the machines makes them an extension of the musician. If one instrument breaks down we are still able to continue, and when we finish our current series of tours we'll be modifying the set still further."
Several master clocks are positioned around the console so that any player can be selecting a tempo for the next piece. This explains the short gap between numbers - "It could be even shorter but we are a little nervous sometimes! We can also trigger other synthesisers off stage and the clock times are set via a digital display and key pad."
B
Ralf's TV monitor and telephone communication to engineers.
C
The Roland Micro-Composer (with expanded memory) plus a bank of switches for routing signals. "The composer can be used for extra tracks in one or two pieces or as the time clock in performance, although we prefer to use it when we are at home for trying out sequence combinations. This is much easier than using the analogue sequencers but it still takes a fair amount of time to set up."
D
The Eventide Digital Delay and Flanger with a small stereo mixer. Panning of sounds can be done by the players mixers or by the sound engineer. "We are not the biggest fans of panning!" comments Ralf. "We think stereo is a 'privileged sound' since only those that sit in the middle hear it properly, and so we are happier to use a mono output that has plenty of depth. Electronic Reverberation is not used very much in performance because most venues have enough (or too much) already."
Both Ralf and Florian use headsets. Ralf does the 'straight' vocals, often shielding the mic with his hand to avoid feedback and increase bass volume. Florian's mic feeds the vocoder and this adds subtle changes to Ralf's voice and provides extra effects.

Sonic LAB: Roland SH-01A Boutique

from sonicstate.com, a new SonicLab by Nick where he analyzes the new Roland SH-01A, check this little beast!! 

Here we go again, it's another Roland reboot in Boutique form. But don't worry, this one really seems to work - spoiler I know but I wanted to get that out of the way.
The SH-101 is an iconic synth in many ways, as it was an enabler for many to enter into the world of synthesis and electronic music, back in 1984 when it was first released, it showed up on a lot of new emerging music. Since then, it's been a mainstay for many electronic outfits due to it having that classic Roland sound while still being relatively affordable.
The Boutique SH-01A does pretty much that, they've not messed around with the layout much, and as a thing it actually works well in boutique form - unlike some of the others.
The sound is faithful, fire up and you're there again, that snappy Roland sound it immediately right there in front of you - yes is does sound like a 101.
Added bonus is of course the fact that you can run it in 4-voice mode, making a handy little poly synth from four 101 voices. Additionally there's a Unison mode (no detune tweak) and a chord mode - stack up four voices at fixed intervals.
You also get  64 memory locations, and 64 for storing sequences too - though sadly these are not linked.

Franck Kartell - Experiences Temporelles


Following on from his sought after sold out album 'Afterlife' Franck Kartell returns for his fourth outing on Bass Agenda Recordings. The album is a homage to the 1962 Chris Marker short film "La Jetee" or "The Jetty". The film tells the story of a post-nuclear war experiment in time travel and was the inspiration for the 1995 film "12 Monkeys." The music captures brilliantly the emotions and atmosphere of the 1962 science fiction feature and shows that electronic music composition deserves a place next to more widely accepted forms of expression. Released only on vinyl to ensure the complete works are heard together, the eight tracks, like the still photos used to construct the original film, depict individual scenes and evoke certain images in the mind. Yet it is the effect of these scenes when experienced in sequence that unlocks the deeper journey and true craftsmanship of Kartell.

SHIPWREC 053: Umwelt - Encoding the Future

Umwelt returns to Shipwrec for his third 12" on the dutch label in as many years. Encoding the Future sees the French pioneer deliver five tracks of on point electronics. Umwelt is known for his trademark sound of piercing percussion, serrating synthlines and industrial strength bass. These elements are all present on this latest EP but have been carved back to allow strings to soar and pads to resonate. New plains are explored. Frigid elegance is juxtaposed by coarse chords, deep basslines countered by lilting lines. Encoding the Future opens a new chapter for the Lyons based producer as he dives into new textures and tones whilst remaining tethered to his cold electro roots.

BASS AGENDA RECS: Descent Into Darkness​/​Machine Learning

Long term friends and artistic collaborators Detroit's Filthiest (aka DJ Nasty) and Go Nuclear bring their next two Electro release to Bass Agenda simultaneously. 

On Side A, Detroit's Filthiest assaults hard with four ferocious dance floor destroyers, showing off both his lifelong passion for Electro and his ability to approach production differently from the majority - blending twisted Detroit rave hooks with a dose of infectious machine funk. 

On Side B, New Zealand's Go Nuclear return after their very well received 'Techno World' debut on Bass Agenda Recordings. This record, their Machine Learning EP, stays faithful to their love of the old school Electro sounds of Detroit with 3 tracks of dance floor futuristic funk. 

The two artists meet in the middle with Detroit's Filthiest remixing the title track in his usual no-nonsense style.
