Princess Yu Is All In Alu!

November 16th, 2020 Comments off

One word. Speed!

On bike down Liljeholmsbacken? Even or past the cars? Then Hornstull – Slussen. That’ll be be on fixie or gear I will kill you… need to stop at the lights, then gear down and up. Red is red and green is green. That is fair? Switch gear up and down. And peddle. I will be faster.

She is much faster than any of the others (no offence Little Black Bear or Little Mountain both stolen within three months, poooooor Sweden).

Fast she is, dangerously fast. Light frame and direct. Firm, riding this bike is special. So light and carries speed that I have never felt.

Stuck in a car-cue? Left and right? Long time waiting, ride is the option? Fast. Accelerate hard. Princess needs other breaks. I need to fit discs on Yu. Acceleration on the frame is ridiculous.

Newton’s right? Weight to power ratio (he did not say that? To be honest.)? I’ve never ridden an aluminium frame before and my weight is about the same so Newton is… right?

Oh, my Lord, Princess Yu is a bike!

Building a new one. Aluminium, really heavy shiny front and 28″ on 26″ frame, black Shimano disc all around. Winter is coming. “- You know nothing, John Snow.”

It Is Time

November 16th, 2020 Comments off

20 years? It took me a time to actually sign up… so I guess my: Joined on February 25, 2006 is somewhat of a late starter?

The aim was and has always have been the same to keep track of the collection, no actually it is the love for the music, formats, details and the stuff that drives non-collectors’ “normal” people mad/off-top-of-their-heads

Inside… flying the dust of some of on the 94’s today, some of the lesser known…

RINSE.FM 106.8FM* on po’n the dial!

94′ init’?, some you know, some you don’t know, in the words of name of the DT, 94 init’ today?!

Juicebox records Big Up! A Called Gerald the Clock remix om my Gosh! Killed me right there… I think I might actually own this track and that is one good reason why should never ever ever play with fire

* FM = Frequency Modulation. Rinse FM is an actual pirate radio station transmitting out of London. Pre-internet… they had to move the transmitter around London, because they did not have a permit to send/transmit music. It was and it is illegal to transmit anything on any frequency that is not sanctioned/paid for…

The mobile network are actually the same. I need to ride my bike… there is still time left.

Dancing, collection, Life and Will!

We are… We Are Viable. Hard pill to swallow? No matter this (again) to swallow the bitter pill (no punt intended). I confess! I am actually one and a half century old. Historically, 200 or 300 years ago? That would have been suspiciously old, like black magic old…

That is the essence of the music that I love and live for; the breaks… look forward and follow the eternal bass. Or as(s) it was once said. Release your mind ans your mind will follow.

Come on! We can do this! The Future is forward! It is unwritten… you need to believe in the future.

Something Happened II

The remains, but don’t worry there’s salvation minutes away… (8 to 12 mins according to the sign).

Left Behind X

November 14th, 2020 Comments off

All of them solitary and all with in the hour; one brand new, one beyond well-used, and one as brand new as tiny and obviously dropped. In the series…

It always makes me wonder. What happened the instant before someone decided “- I’m not wearing these shoes no more this day/night!”. Did a spare pair exist somewhere or did nature have its causal way?

Time [less]

November 11th, 2020 Comments off

Why does it matter?

It used too be/it is still is futuristic music?

Tracks that you will never know… from 1995 til’ 2020, but this is the culture. It is elite for everybody.

This is what you love and hate! The know and not know?

This is why we are different from the rest?

A tune is a tune! We live and die by that credo. We never fail or fall in daub. Ever!

And that is… Drum’n’bass. Fanaticism. That what it is basically. I do believe I’ve earned the right, musically.

Our radio station is: RINSE.FM 106.8FM on the dial.

Tis’ Be Dat Bass Culture

November 7th, 2020 Comments off

It is simple in principle, yet so hard to explain.

– You can’t know that for sure?

– I’m pretty confident. It is a two hour set by Fabio & Grooverider on Rinse.fm. That would be 60 x 2 mins? 120 min right? So, why are six to nine minutes special?

– What separates them from the rest of the minutes? That would be culture or it’s a tune! Short mixing, just to make it more impossible.

– What is that track!? You mean like Super special nigga or It’s on the computa? Right. Supreme beats and breaks on this one. Production? My headphones are not up to the task.

It needs bigger sound/equipment/set-up, but I can hear it nevertheless… in my mind, I can hear it as brightly as the rising sun on a summer’s day, the bass.

– Oh, my Lord what a tune! I’m guessing that it was made specially for the big man. A bespoke production. All intensity. Drum’n’bass still holding strong. First love.

RINSE.FM is our radio station. 106.8 upon di’ dial…

Guds Hus Var… Stängt?

November 6th, 2020 Comments off

Guds hus var… stängt? = The House of God was… closed?

God’s house was closed? The almighty´s house was closed?

I was riding my bike and I felt an strange urge to visit a place of worship, any place of worship.

– Are you a religious man?

– No, but I’m a believer, in a higher, omnipotent eternal principle/entity.

My father told me the following at a very young age:

– You know what? I don’t have any problems with God (there is one God) whatsoever.
– The problem is the återförsäljarna.

That is what he told me. The non-Swedish speaker African man told me?

– I’m telling you. I do not have a problem with God, however. I do have major problems with the återförsäljare.

Then, I tell you that you need to understand something. Den Svenska “Välhögfärden” and “fackförederiet”; it is clear to me that you would need to know several things in order to construct that. Language? That is something… it is my father.

And the elected pope in the Vatican is the stand in for God on Earth (if you are a Catholic). I tried to visit the house of the Lord and it was closed. I could not get in…

– Why?
– The universe is so ordered that there simply must be (logically) an underlying principle. There must be a plan and the conger of that plan is by definition “divine” to me.

The orderly universe is not and can not be a fluke or some random event. There must be an agent. And that is God.

I don’t like the anthropocentric perspective, never have. Man as it where is not the centre of the Universe.

Therefore, I’ve chosen “principle” rather than deity, it is the same thing (more or less): Leibniz, Newton, Darwin, Curie, Maxwell, Tesla, Ohm, field-theory? And: the stoics; Seneca and Epiktetos. Philosophers: Hume, Descartes, Kant, Russell, Carnap, Quine, Heidegger, Nietzche and countless others.

The house of God was closed. Come back on Sunday… that was not what I was looking for…

If You Dance

November 5th, 2020 Comments off

I just realised something… that should have been more than obvious to me. If you dance you will probably listen differently to the music. I just heard it. Right now. Again. Listening to Fabio & Grooverider on: our radio station rinse.fm106.8 up on the dial. I never thought of it that way before, strange.

Some serious musical bizznizz. Core stuff. No, you can’t fool me with the hit. Always looking deeper. You can’t trick the old man. That’s what you need a DJ to begin with if you ever actually needed one. Play and… – What is this track?

Supa star…

Left Behind VIII

November 1st, 2020 Comments off

The solitary looked brand new and what about the pairs?

It always makes me wonder. What happened the instant before someone decided “- I’m not wearing these shoes no more this day/night!”. Did a spare pair exist somewhere or did nature have its causal way?

They do not seem to have been “kicked-off”; on the contrary, they’re were (must have been) orderly removed and quite purposefully placed. What about the remaining journey?

Was it bear-feet or in socks: on bike, by car, being carried or dragged, on stretcher, the coroner, on electric scooter or maybe simply Au natural?

What happened after they were left behind? I always wonder…
