François de Roubaix - Anthologie 1

Monday morning, and getting some vintage electronics on with the above. Sounds amazing right now here on a dark day in Madrid. Electronics lighting up the house.

Synd og Skam feat. Patrick - Tjener alt

Something is going on here, Synd of Skam are breaking the rules, and pushing the envelope around, nicely screwed up, play, pause, rewind, and investigate.

Richie Hawtin drops a MINUS classic you've probably never heard before!!

It´s great to see Richie Hawtin play a big hands in the air cheesy classic.

Just look at Richies face here, he is loving it. We believe as many do, that he is showing his true color here. In a recent interview Richie Hawtin talked about how he finally wanted to take a big risk and that after being a techno producer it was time to play some of his favourite tracks and show the world what he listens too at home.

Barbie Girl and Richie Hawtin go together like strawberrys and cream. Mixmag said they have never seen Richie Hawtin look so happy when he dropped a record, and looking at his reaction above, it seems clear that he was having the time of his life.

The 90´s Boiler Room boys, really done a great job of capturing this epic dance floor moment, we hope this goes down in history. You can watch more DJ´s doing the same and following Richie Hawtins new method breaking cheesy 90´s anthems on the official 90´s Boiler Room Youtube page. Just follow the link above.

STEVIE WONDER. "Another Star". 1976. full track disc "Songs in the Key o...

Timeless music that is today as good as it was when made. From an album that has a hold over me!

Have a good Monday.

Burt Bacharach - Something Big

Are you living for something big? I always was, and I still am. Now I want it more than ever.

Stina Nordenstam - I See You Again.

Another track from the very same tape I have been listening too all day. Another misty track, washed under the waves, and given very little light. Gems, gems, gold, and memory, locked into a 90min tape.

(((IEMN))) John Beltran - Sub-Surface - R&S Records 1995 - Ambient

Listening to some mix tapes from as far back as 1996, this track came on, Incredible that I was playing this so long ago, and still here on Youtube it only has 67 views. An underscovered Cafe Del Mar gem, that never made it to Ibiza, nor to anyones ears. Shame, a lost gem.

Vikki Carr - The Silencers

Oh a gun can be a .22

Or a .38 and it will silence you

Dear sir, that is a silencer

But if you should see a lady

Who has the kind of waist that measures 22

And she's 38 where it is great to measure 38

Dear sir, she is a silencer

Dear sir, I'm her

I don't use a knife, don't need a gun

My equipment is a lot more deadly, son

Dear sir, I am a silencer

And if you're a man not made of wood

When I flip my hips, I'll quiet you for good

Let me brush your lips and crush your lips

and nicely hush your lips

Dear sir, I am a silencer

Dear sir, don't stir, don't move, relax

Loosen your tie

Turn out the light

Take of your shoes

Don't fight

Lean back

Relax, relax, relax, relax, relax

Dear Sir!

What do machines sing of? And when will they make an Elvis DSP Plugin?

What do machines sing of?

Here is a project by artist Martin Backes that features a sinewave running on a machine.

The machine appears to be singing, and performing 90s hits from the likes of Whitney Houston and Celine Dion.

This project is a very long way from my own personal future vison of having powerful DSP plugins that just give you a preset for say Elvis, or Frank Sinatra.

V/Vm dreamed of adding a preferred vocalist like an instrument to any song.

I am sure I am not alone, having the power to add any top 100 artist and  apply, just as you can select a violin instrument, is really something to open and experiement with.

Here the simplicity is charming and quaint as our screen vocals and mimics the ballads.

Click below to watch the video on Vimeo where I first found it.

Peggy Lee -- Is That All There Is? 1969

Love the story telling element here. Shame this song cannot be found on Spotify. 

Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen lecture Nieuwe Instituut Rotterdam,, 29-11-2013

I was brought here today after watching some old footage recorded in Scotland 2002. Stuart from Diskono Records was talking with myself and Dan R, in the video, which re-jolted memories ending today at this point.
