Le Mépris By Le Mépris

February 16th, 2018 Comments off

I like this album a lot. It is so melancholic, it contains piano, cello and it is scaled down, yet dramatic.

I like the artwork, I like the label [sic!] and I like the (assumed) über-reference as well.

The title and the artist’s name must have been taken from the identically named 1960’s film directed by Jean-Luc Godard and starring Brigitte Bardot? Contempt (1963).

It is very strong word, in any language.

System Burial?

“No sound can test, so you can bring them on.”

Wow, that’s funny and quite a claim apart from being an excellent opening track and one, two or possibly three quite heavy samples.

Fabio & Groove upsetting again. Lovely!

Hail, The Haley Brothers!

Somatic Responses. Consistency. Always so beautifully consequently distorted. Every time. And has been so for a very long time.

It used to be called “hardcore” and I for one think that it is still a deserved title. It is properly intense music, that I’ve come to understand over time. Rude soundin’ music.

The best kept secret. The reason why Hymen is and is not Ant-Zen. These are industrial breaks. The head shaking ones, but not necessarily in approval. The hardcore ones.

Electronic Music From The Lost World: 1998-2001

January 30th, 2018 Comments off

Of course it had to come to this.

The lost battle, what extraordinary music and the sentiment is very much retained.

That would be ASIP and you’ll find the digital version here: 1998-2001.

The title is excellent, by the side-way. After all it is: Christian Klein.

Reminisce II

2004. It was so cool and southing sounding. Bringing hope of less aggressive times. A timeless album because the opening track is something else: “Peace Of Mind”. Classic neo-electro.

More Dolor

January 22nd, 2018 Comments off

No punt intended… well that’s actually not entirely true.

Never mind that, if you like “Gun City”, “Sister” and the recently mentioned “5 9. 0”? Then there’re two more: “Ruby” and “Ara”. Equally excellent and brilliant contemporary electronic stuff.

I mean something, anything containing a title/track called: “Sorry, Prince (Wenh U Wwere Mine Cover)” and sounding like that?

What can I possibly say? Carving out a unique sound/sonic picture these days? That is a feat in itself. Doing so consistently? It is impressive. And contemporary in a real sense. I like it tremendously.

There’s a high-end sound track feel, yet a lo-fi approach that is quite unique. Digital production means if you have the ideas…

There seems to be more talent: lorn. Artist link: dolor.ws.

Again!? Dolor

January 16th, 2018 Comments off

There is something very, very special about this track… (actually is the whole album) and it is exciting.

Dolor ‎– Metropoles – Gun City – Not On Label (Dolor (3) Self-released) ‎– none – 2016.

It is still unreleased? Or is it? Different.

But, that’s just because Funcken played it? Well, it doesn’t really work that way. An excellent track is an excellent track and an excellent album is an excellent…

There is always a context. It is usually related to time for us humans in any event. It is decidely American in my mind. What does that mean? Well, it is from the US it is not UK bass.
