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.

Hjärtstartare/Cardiac Arrest

January 24th, 2018 Comments off

The actual defibrillator seems to be missing.

There’s a hand-written comment on the “FELANMÄLD” note that reads: “Tom sedan september” it would equate to: “Emtpy since September” (I am assuming the month of September last year, that would be anno Domini 2017).

If the comment is indeed true and if it is currently January 2018 that would make give or take five months without a: “hjärtstartare” at T-Centralen (Central Station) in Stockholm, Sweden, on the upper floor.

The ATM a foot away (to the left in the picture, but out of shot) seemed to be in full working order though… I will have to revist the site in question.

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.

Reminisce I

January 22nd, 2018 Comments off

For all the kids.

I really, really did not like what Dr. Dre did then, back in 1999. Not, entirely alone about that, then robbing funk and “soul music”, blindley, and the East-West constructed conflict that ended so tragically.

Yet, it is an epic album. So many good rappers (did you ever hear of Eminem?) and a solid, ultra solid production. Unbelievably so.

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.

Sec Ops?

That would be a part of the origin and very fabric of drum’n’bass. Yes, no, not Jungle but drum’n’bass (the first split… reinforced).

So, it is 2018 and the number is 028 is it not? That’s fantastic! In perspective… since 1995 less about 30 releases. The others (net-labels mentioned and included…) + 200 in less than 10 years?

I know what I like.
