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.

Release date: December 1, 2017

MANASYt - Reality Defense Department EP (MUSAR002)

a1. Memory Imprints
a2. Mobile Pharmacy
a3. Orthodox Spanking (Wax Stag Remix)
b1. Mobile Pharmacy (Via App Remix)
b2. Orthodox Spanking

Pre-order here: https://musar.bandcamp.com/album/reality-defense-department


We are honoured to welcome Bulgaria's electro-synth pioneer MANASYt with a new five-track EP, the first in a three-part series. 'Reality Defense Department' will be the Bulgarian's first new material since 2012.

Petar Tassev aka MANASYt, hails from the twilight zone. Growing up with the blacks swans in the forest of communist Bulgaria, listening to metal and hardcore music then interpreting the moody, roughness together with inspirations from electronic new-wave music to a raw, pure and dark adventure bubbling with madness.

'Reality Defense Department' is a future horror movie soundtrack.
The first track 'Memory Imprints' is a pure psychedelic-trip into the mental clinic for clockwork orange droogs, while the second track 'Mobile Pharmacy' evokes an apocalyptic alien attack.
'Orthodox Spanking' is a dark, wayward fetish party electro track full of post-punk elements, fitting for an artist given to performing live in a rubber 'gimp' mask.

A pair of remixes are supplied by Brooklyn's wonder girl 'Via App' with a deep, dark and gothic techno rework for the late dazed hours of the morning and Norwich's kept secret,
'Wax Stag' (an occasional collaborator with Bibio and Clark) that delivers a dreamy, cosmic twist that will linger in your consciousness for a long, long time to come.

OBERGMAN - Universal Hologram (börft151)

from http://www.borft.com

Another excursion for the genre independent Börft label. Celebrated artist Obergman delivers a six tracker record for fans of acid and electro.

The release is initiated with the drexciyan styled electro track ”GERMINATION” with occasional strings that brings some light in the atmosphere of desolate landscapes, followed by the groovy electrotech melodic track ”UNEXPECTED CONNECTION”

The acid techno workout ”ACID HEALING” slowly builds with sweet melodic strings into floorfilling potential while the B-side begins with ”INFLATABLE”. A Bass ridden driving acid techno track with ominous melodic stabs that works well when doing a build-up mix into more frenzy territory. The b2 track ”GREENGLOW” explores rocking acid lines bonded by delicate smooth detroit styled strings.

Last track of the record, ”UNIVERSAL HOLOGRAM”, is a strong beautiful electro track with great electric pulses, melancholic atmosphere and subtle strings.

NOAMM, BLACK WAVES - BASS AGENDA RECORDINGS



18 months since his 'Entering Darkness' album on Bass Agenda Recordings Greek weaver of darkness Noamm is back. In the case of some artists they might use 18 months mellowing out or exploring their sensitive side maybe. In the case of Noamm though - his music has become even darker, more raw, and more aggressive.

Each track spits itself at you with purpose; blending the tortured soul of a human-machine hybrid with a glimpse of an unpleasant future dripping with sweat and venom.

Ride the Black Waves - if you think you can handle it. Dark Electro done right.

Supported by Dave Clarke - Whitenoise 618 - youtu.be/ecTZn054YY4

BASS AGENDA RECORDINGS: Transhumanism 2

Cat No. - BA066 

Following on from the success of the first Transhumanism compilation (inspired when the four artists met for the first time at Dave Clarke's first Whip It event in Amsterdam) the Dutch boys are back with a vengeance. Boosted by the support of the likes of UMEK, Dave Clarke and Helena Hauff these four artists have dialled everything up a notch with four new tracks. 

w1b0 is on fine form with Zero Meridian, a ferocious dancefloor destroyer with his trademark sounds. RXmode delivers his recognisable brand of heavy weight darkness in spades. Slaves of Sinus once again shows his commitment to combining dancefloor Electro beats with a few twists and surprises in the sound palette and structure; his track Game Set Match breaks down completely then launches straight back with purpose. Finally, TFHats follows up his recent vocal stunner 'Binary Stars' (as supported by Maceo Plex and Dave Clarke) with 'Kompromat' - blending cold atmospheres and melody with punchy beats and his unique vocal style. 

Four individual styles of Electro united by passion, quality and that Dutch magic….

ABOUT ELECKTROIDS and ELEKTROWORLD by DREXCIYA RESEARCH LAB

You can find the link to DREXCIYA RESEARCH LAB in our ESSENTIAL links but here is a link they just share in their Fabebook. Elektroworld is one of my favorite albums ever and I have to share this with all of you.

"In 1995 the UK’s Warp Records put out the much loved ‘Elektroworld’ album by Elecktroids. Today Elecktroids are widely known to have been a side project related to one or both members of Drexciya and possibly two others. At the time however I’m not sure how much was revealed to the press and public about its authorship"... you can continue here:

NEW 808 BOX 5TH ANNIVERSARY

TIME CAPSULE aka 808 BOX - 5th ANNIVERSARY
Limited Edition 250 copies
 

This year we celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Time Capsule project aka 808 Box.
In the last 5 years we released 46 vinyl records, 284 tracks and 64 loops of our beloved TR-808, all in five wooden boxes. Every year we try to make a picture of the actual electro music movement, the aim of this project is to create an archive for future generations.
We always included 8 vinyl records but this year we received many good tracks and we thought the best way to celebrate this 5th Anniversary is to include more records, so this year the 808 Box includes 11 records!!
After 5 years the 808 Box is a consolidate project, this is about music and that is the most important. Here you have almost 2 hours of pure electro music and this is only something more than one minute of each track included in this special 808 Box :)
Enjoy it!

Suction Records: SNOW ROBOTS 4 - Ceramic Hello "Sampling the Blast Furnace"

VV.AA
Title: Snow Robots Volume 4
Label / CAT#: Suction Records / suction042
Format: 12” EP
Release Date: December 8, 2017

Formed in 1997, and inaugurated that year with a split 12” from new-comers and label founders, Solvent and Lowfish, this year Suction Records celebrates it’s 20th anniversary with the re-introduction of their famed Snow Robots series of compilations. While originally started as a North American answer to UK electronix labels like Rephlex, Skam and Warp Records, a sound that is still a staple of the current Suction Records catalog, Suction’s sound has also swerved into new territories, reflecting our love of dark ‘80s electronic music - synthpop, EBM, and beyond…. Snow Robots Volume 4 features an international array of artists, from Suction Records mainstays like Digital Poodle, June, Celldöd, and Ceramic Hello (with their much sought-after 1982 vocoder anthem), to label-favourites appearing on Suction Records for the first time: Beau Wanzer, Morah, and one of Skanfrom/Sleeparchive’s lesser known aliases, Civil Defence Programme.

Deluxe packaging, limited to 500 copies, with 200 copies on GREY+WHITE MARBLED VINYL.

Back to work!...: BP001: Das Muster - Fehlersuche

After some months of silence we will start again uploading interesting news about the electro music movement.

::::::

Excellent work by Marcus Mumm aka Das Muster:

"Between Places" is the new sublabel from SolarOneMusic, because SOM set their focus more on Albums and all kinds of electronic music.The new "Between Places" Label will only have the focus on pure Electro Music from all different countries.!!! First release comes from German Producer "Das Muster" known from his work for SolarOneMusic, Luke Eargoggle's Stilleben Records, Arnold Steiners Transient Force or also from his great Album on Alek Stark's Fundamental Records. He is no stranger for die hard electro fans and also for all who like the old, cold and dark sound of Dopplereffekt".
