It is not complicated or is it slightly more complicated? What say you. Honestly? Come on! wr (at) resurface . se

The Power Of UK Bass

May 6th, 2017 Comments off

I have been telling you lot… that the source is the one and the same.

I have been telling you that it is probably an UK/EU business? Ant-zen business?

So, then an odd 25 years later, it is still the same thing aka UK?

Pushing musical stuff that is beyond, ruff and unforgiving. Culture.

Youngsta B2B Truth? That compression? That it is the end of the road for me…

I had to give up at some time? Subsidise to the bass stuff?

You don’t have to like or understand it, but you I do think you need to accept it. I for one do love it and I have spent a life time doing so..

But, you never really understood that… “You know what they call us?”

Well, at least for some of us, Europe is a very serious thing.

And I am surely too young to have been taken part in any of the wars. But, I am not young enough to understand that it can happen again at any time. And if you paid any attention at all in school?

There has been many wars in Europe the past 2000 years? There is even one called the “100 year war” and that was fought between “Christians” in Europe, what we would call France these days…

The first and second World Wars? 20 years seperated them? Perspective? If you were born in 1911, you would have been a small child and an then a young adult and still living through two World Wars? Like my grandmother.

History.

Out Of Control, This Thing Is…

May 2nd, 2017 Comments off

Tjatandet*?

I personally never viewed it or will ever view it like that…

To me? It is a story that has to be told and retold. Why? Because that is the story to be told.

It is the same story that has been told for millennia? The story told by the “Griot”?

I am not one of them, but I am not the one? I know my history and it is not the one of stone and potato picking variability.

The bass being pushed from the UK now? It is similar to that story, just harder, better and more relentless than ever.

“Le tam-tam” or as it was retold by my father? He would have said: “***** **** ** ***** ****** ** ***-***.” and that is a story that is thousands of years old.

And that story progresses throughout, like a wave (physics say that a wave actually never “moves” and that would seem to be true if you have faith in modern (1900’s) physics.) If you think about it? If you do away with modern physics (my point being that “modern” started in the 1900’s…). Why the h**l is it so hard to appreciate the advances made in one hundred (100) years?

There are “people” not “believing” in vaccination? What the h**l is all that about? I mean, I thought that it was clear to everybody how many human beings that have died in viral deceases? The Black Plague? I will never understand that.

Please, I urge everybody. READ SOME HISTORY! Without proper vaccination and without efficient antibiotic? Do you understand how extremely dangerous that is?

Musically? I for one have never heard anything like it. It is crushing everything else. And I for one love it! As relentless as it is brilliant. It is pure bass music. I am so grateful. “You know what they call us?”.

Actually I don’t know (but I can guess). Bass? It is the definition of my life and till day it still is. When, I am truly happy.

It just never stops… it is a two hour show? It is 2017 and attack all the way? There is no paus? No breather? It is excellent, but the tempo is very aggressive? Then again tempo is not all. I still love the presentation. The mighty, mighty, rinse.fm from London city.

Well, I tried, but I can not object to anything… I just can not do it. Electronic Bass music? Has it ever sounded this good? No. I honestly don’t think so.

Technology on both sides? I am talking about the US. It is obvious (to me) that the one could not exist without the other. The bass, “drag” and the definition being pushed? Really? Impossible! Is the soul there? I know it is. “Black Star Liner” I say to you.

* Oh, yes, that is Swedish… Well, it literally means “nagging” and in French it would be “rabâcher”.

You know, too speak of something endlessly and never stop?

You Still Don’t Understand, Really?

April 29th, 2017 Comments off

That is quite alright.

But, that will pose a gigantic problem to me. A big problem. You need to stop this nonsense right now or as the “Agent Orange” would possible say: “No, no ‘Bad Hombres’ causing huge, and I mean huge problemas” (OK, I made the very last bit up).

To simplify and possibly talking some sense for a change.

“Fab & Groove”, “DJ Youngsta” or “Swamp” at rinse.fm? Can you imagine going from afro-pop (I am guessing 60’s, but it could be yesterday, or, what 60’s was/is or may have been yesterday/tomorrow) on to house, like in written-in-stones house onto whatever it is called nowadays “progressive” techno in three or five tracks?

I had almost forgot how brilliant it can be… never hear that, never (seldom) hear it played liked that? My music!

Thanks to my teachers. In particular: the-straight-up-and-down-techno-nose-bleed-guru-and-the-ur-unlocker. Always the DJ* of all DJs. Eclectic? The word did not exist before… “Music First”. Saying it and living it? It is not the same thing is it? Spectacular effort my friend. The soldiers! The bass pushing crew. The young and the old… The futurists, to all makers of beautiful stuff…

To do that, play like that? It sounds/looks easy? You need serious skills and you would have to be… a DJ (I wish). To me it is the core and soul of London. The London I love is musical. There is no “waiting for”. Go or be gone. The perfect moment to quote “Alla kan tralla”. If you by a chance do not master the language? Write a note and it will be translated as swiftly as possible. That is a promise.

It is amusing too: “Do you really think that I got issues?”. I don’t know the artist. I would guess American possibly the Green, Detroit or Chicago but I really don’t know… Nevertheless, that is funny, seriously funny techno fun-bits. “You got issues.” Ha ha, you think?

Every day… 24 hrs seven days a week. That is why the ones from there all have to leave. It is to intense. The pressure and in that context? Brexit? That’s just ridiculous… Claim your own state now! I would apply for citizenship…

We will need some irony? My father never set foot in the UK. As a matter of fact he became upset by the fact that I even considered venturing to Londinium in the first place. I did, but that is an another story all together…

Americans, they be rude. “You can call me that.” No, you may not call me that. You crazed dirty US techno freak!

And it gets even more serious. I’m fragile, I simply can’t be listening to this. I don’t know what it is and I probably should know. I do know that it is from America, it is electronic music and it is hurting me (wait, hey, wait I DO know… I know what this is. This is UR! It is the Underground Resistance! That means Detroit and that means massive trouble…).

No, not the ultra hard brothers… Detroit please have mercy? Sure, I slipped for a moment and yes I was not paying attention. But, only for a brief moment? “Minimal” and/or awards? That’s like letting a monkey dabble with nuclear weapons or loaded handguns.

It’s not even my first choice, musically (like there was something to choose from to begin with… it is unreal and I can not really say more).

I can say. You don’t want to mess with UR. Ever. Just, don’t do it.

I Did You Tell You?

April 29th, 2017 Comments off

Well, either you do know or you do not know, right?

The margins need to be levelled, centred and balanced (and that was not the case, but I am going to let it pass this time.).

I tried, but helas I could not do it. I had to add a third (or actually a fourth version, the background colour did not match…) picture.

Why? Well… I am just like that.

And that, surely? Can not be the very best kept secret in the known World?

We, that would be me and my peers constructed your World and we can deconstruct the very same World.

Calm down, will you? There is no need to be alarmed. And, no you do not need to run directly to mum and dad to seek comfort.

Honestly? It is well known. No one is boarding my boat, but then there is the theory… and it could very well be reality. You don’t think so? Mm, are you completely confident? I mean are you sure about that?

My generation? Are extremely hard working people and most of us are extremely sacrificial people. Why is that? What was/is the purpose? Freedom. Democracy. Equality. Enjoyment. Humanity. Civilisation.

Work hard, play hard. I am sure you have all heard of it?

Fab & Groove, Again, Really? Come On Man…

April 28th, 2017 Comments off

Yes, once again. Fab & Groove on the mighty, mighty and equally relentless rinse.fm.

Yes, I’m afraid it has to be said once more. I do apologise and I am in fact truly sorry.

Where? At: rinse.fm and that’s it, really. You got proper science right there.

You’ll have to be able to perform though… play like that. Deliver and withstand the pressure decade after decade…

It is similar to standing very close (or too close) to the fire. It is unreal and now I can understand (not really) why it is so hard to understand.

It’s just… very hard to explain. I guess, it is the same thing as always; feelings and memories. Nostalgia and future at the same time? Is that the definition of a contradiction? Well, yes it is the definition.

It’s like wearing a full snow-suit in Brixton (no photographs to prove it (pre-mobile), but it happened and you just have to trust me on that)? I remember that I had a hard time getting a cab that night and I was flustered… Go figure?

Admittedly, I was stretching it a bit (I did not wear a face mask* at the time, but I have done so at other occasions why? Well, the obvious answer is Altern 8), but in the end it was all OK and an excellent night out.

Today? Not possible, so something has been lost. In translation/process and I for one miss it. A lot… I am bored to death.

I do believe there is a word designated for all that. The thing missing in my life. And that word is: Freedom!

Completely unrelated I never really had any reason to question the directionality of time. However it is not given (if you think about it). And I’m not going to this “time” (amusing is it not?) either.

Because, to men, women and children it is unequivocally directional (already derailing, so why not? If the concept of time is so hard to comprehend. Then the extreme mathematical interpretation of “reality” seems more and more plausible. The “World”, our world that is, is in fact a 2-D hologram projected upon what we experience as the “real” 3-D World+ I’m not skilled enough in mathematics, but based on pure emotion… it do all makes sense to me.).

* Did you…? Yes, I did wear shorts in the middle of the winter (and it was cold as h*ll…). Were they knee-long? Yes, of course they were but still extremely chilly.

Mm, I think I am done. This will suffice… for now. Worldwide. Now?

So Speaks Galactus!

April 28th, 2017 Comments off

Wait, that is not my fault? He may speak somewhat oddly, but he is Galactus right?

It is Galactus and I can not possibly do anything about that?

He is one of the oldest beings in the known universe. Stemming from a time before the big bang…

It is possible that even you would be a bit grumpy after 15 000 million years of existence?

I for one listen to Galactus, I always have and I always will do. Currently our visible universe is about 13800 million light-years old.

That is a rather strange expression…

Never mind, we are in fact talking about Galactus.

No, Justice Will Not Be Served Today… Either

April 25th, 2017 Comments off

No, the verdict will not be cast or executed today. Or maybe it was…

I happen to own the Swedish version (No 7, 1985, Spindelmannen) of the comic that they (partly) used to make the film: “Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer”. It is a catastrophic interpretation. The Silver Surfer is not even present in the “original” story…

Well, it is not the original story, rather it is several different stories combined and not in a good way I my add.

The main story however, is when Galactus comes to Earth (to feed) and Spiderman, The Fantastic Four, Thor and Iron Man, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, and the rest of The Avengers to name a few all join forces to fight him.

And they do all fight Galactus until they realise that they actually have to save him in order to save Earth.

The mystery is why these stories “have” to be rewritten at all? Why rewrite and exlude Terrax and include Silver Surfer that was the one to take Terrax place? The original narrative is existent and thorough. Trust the story. Don’t destoyed everything. In the name of the Lord, get your (the) story right.

Galactus is an eternal being? Meaning that he’s very old and he does not take sides (he is neither good nor bad, is that a piece of Americana ambiguity)? Galactus was “born” before the Big Bang and he is an extremely lonely entity… With that striking visual apperance and powers… the missfit “cloud” in the film is… what happened to the planet-eating-machine? 100000 hrs of CGI spent on the Hulk. 0 seconds spent on Galactus?

“They” managed to completly destroy, not only the story but in the process my all-time favorite Marvel character: “Galactus” (I could not even understand that it was Galactus, even though I read the comic countless times… and I had to see see the movie three times before I understood). I have the very same comic book in my hand now.

Spiderman has been destroyed, alongside Doctor Octopus and Green Goblin and countless other characters (I did not read X-men at the time, 1985 or so).

But, Galactus… that is a just a crime. Basically, all of my “American” childhood comic book memories have been destroyed and exploited in a way that is simply put appalling.

Even the Judge has been compromised… I may have to rethink some stuff. Apperantly “Tank Girl” has also been made into a movie (I have not seen it)?

Did I mention Daredevil and Electra? No? So, basically only Cloak & Dagger are left? Sure, there are some others and some other stuff, but I will not tell you.

But, Galactus… that is a just a crime. Even the strange, mighty, moody and all so powerful Galactus?

Relateded/unrelated: “Ghost in the Shell”… Donc, dans un mot… c’est terminé. Please… don’t. Have mercy.

Angels Fall On Your Head?

April 14th, 2017 Comments off

What?

But, what does it mean? Surely, if angels fell on your head? It would be an undesirable thing?

It is Poetry by be the musician “The Vizier Of Damascus”. Angels falling on my head? No, I don’t like the sound of that. Angels are fierce and supernatural entities.

Mm, I don’t know or rather can you misunderstand it? Anyhow the track is called “Lectures”.

“Read your history. Clowns wearing gowns and frowns in my ghost town”? Apart from being pretty smart, true and harsh. It is also quite frightening.

That is an odd 20 years ago? “Clowns wearing gowns and frowns in my ghost town”?

Why not read up on a bit of history? Well should we not? It’s not going to happen is it? 20 years ago. And the misery of the World is not related to the lack of historical knowledge?

I have heard that story before… in a different language “Les phantoms”. Way back when I was a little boy and I can assure you that it is well beyond 30 years ago. My father told me more or less the exact same thing.

I did say that I like the track “Lectures” a lot? “Angels Fall On Your Head?”…

That is… simply poetry.
