To All The Girls And Boys In The World

The best drum’n’bass track ever produced?

Shockingly enough! It is still Doc Scott’s: “Shadow Boxing”*. And I have been looking for a very long time…

But, there are others… I mean come on, the History!

Danny Breaks and Droppin’ Science (defintely on par… either it is Doc or maybe it actually is Danny’s “Solar Jive”?), Reinforced, 4Hero = (Mm), Boymerang, PM Scientists, AI, Photek, Source Direct, J Majik, etc. (I cannot remeber them all. I’m aware of the label/artist mix-up).

That being said… Photek or Source? So What (It is actually a ref. look Horn-wise)? Just, try to listen. And that’s all really. As I was once thought (by many more than one).

Re. this though, you need to try to have an open mind. Always.

* And it is not a track by Photek? I forgot about Photek… 1997. Even worse. I did not even mention Digital, Klute, Teebee, Polar, Seba, Krazy or…

Petit Frère

“Petit Frère”. What do you mean by that?

Are you talking about: “Abd al Malik”, the rapper from Strasbourg? The guy who could be the most talented rapper ever…? (Yes, Mm, or I actually think/know he is the best alive. (Of the ones that I’ve heard.).).

What about the other one?

“Abd al-Malik” or “Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan”? The Caliph of Damascus? That would be in AD (“Anno Domini”, if you are Christian), in any case it is a rather long time ago… (Damascus? That would be current/always situated in Syria).

“Petit Frère”? Honestly and with the outmost respect. I really don’t say that in a manner that would suggest that I know any better.

Sure, “Petit frère” does mean “little brother”, but that is not what I’m saying/what I mean nor how it is used. It could very well be: “Grand”, “Le grand” or “Cousin”.

OK? So, what are you saying exactly?

What I’m trying to say… is that it’s a “saying”. It has nothing to do with your age or your relations. As matter of fact, it is just common courtesy. An act of friendliness or simple respect. It is nothing more nothing less.

Please do try to remember this, it is still nothing/something you would say or do randomly. Because, it would necessarily have to involve your family to begin with.

It is ancient knowledge, but it is still important though.

Cold V

11 (eleven) centigrade, still cold. There are some scholars that say it is due to the Gulf stream slowing down. If true then it will get even colder here up north or “You know nothing John Snow.”.

That is approx. 24 hrs worth of snow on my balcony rail. 100.00mm/3.93″ (and still falling).

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.

Subversive

January 5th, 2018 Comments off

At one time it was feared and considered deeply subversive.

“Anti EP” is the third EP by British electronic music duo Autechre, released by Warp Records on 3 September 1994.

Anti EP was a protest against the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, which would prohibit raves (described as gatherings where music is played), with “music” being defined as a “succession of repetitive beats.”

Warning. ‘Lost’ and ‘Djarum’ contain repetitive beats. We advise you not to play these tracks if the Criminal Justice Bill becomes law. ‘Flutter’ has been programmed in such a way that no bars contain identical beats and can therefore be played under the proposed new law. However, we advise DJs to have a lawyer and a musicologist present at all times to confirm the non repetitive nature of the music in the event of police harassment.
