Lite Orättvis Ref. AFX, Ae, Squarepusher Och L.Elblaus?

October 25th, 2017 Comments off

Men nu är det väl ändå kört? Kanske inte måste ju känna till att det är inte det bästa som Beefcake har gjort.

Jag eller ingen annan kan ta sig förbi Ae eller AFX? Vad menar du? Varför pratar du det?

– Är du en jävla dumskalle? – Nej det är jag inte eller ja kanske jag är det? Men jag lyssnar ju på “Beefcake” nu? “406” är en av mina favoritlåtar och de är ju från Tyskland?

“Beefcake” är mina favoriter. Jag älskar dem? Braks om de någosin fanns. Det finns många fler som är orättvist behandlade. Det är “Pure breaks”. På Tyska.

Men idag hörde jag det…. Jag har alltid tänkt “Pure breaks”. Jag har aldrig hört Ae, AFX eller Squarepuscher i Beefcake förr.

Lyssnat mången gång. Det är nytt för mig. Det går ju inte att ändra. Jag hörde det tydligt idag. Kanske inte förvånar någon annan men ingen har talat med mig om det. Nu måste jag tala med Dr. Ludo…

Jag måste lyssna mer och tänka. De är ju väldigt samtida. AFX är alltid först sedan Ae och resten… Dr. Ludo vet ju det så klart. Jag har någonting att att säga också. Att gå till magistern? Inte roligt. Helvete.

The track: “406”? I like it a lot.

Like A Revengeful Ghost

September 29th, 2017 Comments off

Move like a ghost. “Samurai Showdown”? The ******* Wu? RZA? What else is there to say or add?

“… like a revengeful ghost and shows great determination tough his head is cut off he should not die.”

Ghost Dog – The way of the samurai (the motion picture and sound track). Oh my.

Ett utvecklingstörningssamtal till? Men kommer de att ta slut någon gång?

Vad händer när eleverna vet mer än sina lärare?

“Digitalsering”? Asimov? Finns det någon som har läst och förstått? Uttråkad.

In my country we have stated in law that every child have rights and they can not be compromised.

Children = every one living in my country that is less than 18 years old.

Every living being under that age has very specific privileges, protection and basically only rights.

The children do not have responsibilities in my country the parents hold all of the responsibilities.

In my country it also entails that when you turn 18 then you are considered to be an adult and you will be treated as such. It does no matter if you are ready or not.

You are either a child or you are not and it is impossible to be both at the same time. If you are not a child then you are an adult. By definition you become an adult when you turn 18 years old. It is an extreme difference in my country. Questions? Why is like that? Well, it is by decision, but the idea that there must be a difference between juveniles and adults is not that far-fetched?

In any event it seems to be a legal question as well? 40 year old “children”? It doesn’t make much sense to me? “Child” is also a question of accountability? At some point every citizen in the state must be accountable for their actions?

As adult you get privileges in my country. You get to vote, drive, fly, open bank accounts, rent, borrow, venture into business, marry, leave or join any church/community and a lot of other things, you may worship whatever, write, shout whatever you want (well as long as you don’t do anything against the law.)

You are not allowed to break the law. Not even children.

You are actually required to know the laws. In the same way as you are required to be able to identify yourself. It is a requirement of every adult.). But, you will have to be responsible for your own actions. Why? The rules say so.

So, if you are 18 + one day old you will have the same responsibilities and rights as someone that is 98 + one day? Right? When you turn 18 you are accountable for everything. By definition you are an adult.

But, you also have obligations. If you break the law, misuse or act in a way that is not favourable to the state (majority, people or whatever)? Then you will be punished accordingly.

That is civilisation according to me. We are all created equal. The fifth republic has a motto:

“Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité”

It is not a catch phrase. It is the very foundation of democracy. You take it for granted? Please don’t.

Realise that you are a citizen. You have freedoms, but as a citizen you also have obligations. And they may turn out to be more important, the responsibilities may turn out to more important than all your rights.

My country? Fair enough: it is Sweden.

“Samurai Showdown” again I forgot. “Move like a ghost.” My Lord, the push on this one… RZA? That sample? It is… pure science.

2000? Who is the smarter pant?

My categories? They are still not up to standard and honestly they should be. That is my profession?

Picture: it is taken from my kitchen window. That used to be a helicopter… No, it is another tower crane. I would never have imagnied that. I can see 10 of them from my home.

RZA? The Wu? Science right there.

While, Haze [Chocolate Ind. – CHLT009CD, 2000]

March 14th, 2003 Comments off

while_hazeTerrific six-track EP from While on Chocolate Ind. “Haze” contains all his trademarks, but has an overall more sinister feeling to it. Tempo is lower, hip hop influenced beats and tremendous bass, fills the sonic picture, somewhat reminiscent of Scorn’s work, but not as slow or minimal and less sinister. The six tracks on the EP are all pieces of great music and “Haze” comes highly recommended. Apparently these tracks were originally released as two 12-inch singles with spectacular artwork. It doesn’t matter if you get the singles or the CD, the music on either of them will sound as good, that much I’m sure of. I say well done While!

While, Even [Chocolate Ind. – CHLT021CD, 2000]

March 9th, 2003 Comments off

while_evenWhat an excellent album this is! On “Even” While continues the sound developped on the equal excellent Lock EP also on Chocolate Industries. You get nice beats programming, beautiful melodies and rather interesting choices of sounds together creating simply brilliant tracks with just a hint of melancholy. It’s reminiscent of the musical ideas of the now long discontinued duo called “Spooky” (no I’m not talking about DJ Spooky) as well as the grossly underrated M-Tec. Starting off with “Gate2” a very short and beatless intro leading on to “Bin” with the characteristic bell like sounds of While’s productions. “Chase” moves on the same lines with nice beats and played basslines, fragile melodies creating atmosphere. The entire album continues in this vein, strong tracks, lush beats and magical melodies. There’re eleven tracks in total, “Else”, “Temp”, “Hive”, “Level”, “Fault”, “Lost4” and “Moth” are all equally well-composed tracks and together as a totality they make up this delightful “While” production entitled “Even”. And the American Chocolate Industries imprint were the ones who had the good taste of releasing the album. The artwork is really nice too, so you get visuals as well albeit them being motionless. One can’t but take a while and wonder what ever happened to this talented artist?

While, Slip [Chocolate Ind. – CHLT019CD, 2000]

March 9th, 2003 Comments off

while_slipAnother nice offering from Chocolate Industries and While is the mini-album “Slip”. Cant’ really get my head around the catalogue numbers, because this release is supposed to have been released after the excellent “Even” album, but it has the catalogue number 019 whereas the Even album got 021. Never mind that out of the eight tracks contained on the CD four are remixes and they are made by: “Savath + Savalas”, “Fennesz”, Agrape Dope and the fourth is by “While” remixing himself. Noticeable as always are the unusual and brilliant choices in melodic elements that enhances the unique lush soundings of the artist in question. And on top of that you’ve got artwork, which is simply stunning. In other words yet another great “While” release on Chocolate Industries.

Sierra Romeo, Nevel [FWD – FWD2001, 2000]

July 23rd, 2002 Comments off

fwd_fwd2001_2000The first release on the Dutch [FWD label was honored to Arovane and this the second, to Sierra Romeo and the result was this four-track 12″. First up is “nevel” a sweet sounding track with sounds reminiscent of early tupilaq recordings. Which naturally is a good thing! It is followed by “carcass” a minimal, slightly more somber track with floating eerie sounds – it falls into the more ambient side of things. The b-side features “c-en” with nice sound textures and suggestion of throbbing bassline alongside percussions light as air. This is a really beautiful piece of music – which also falls into the more ambient side of things. Last and fourth track “drant” delivers a solid bassline with a joyful melody, the kind of track you’re compelled to play at least twice in a row. Quite uncomplicated but the melody is very effective.
