May 26th, 2020 Comments off


Yet an discarded artefact. For being a reference temparature gauge it seems to be working fine (it went to the blue on the dial after a while in the freezer). Status? as new/unused. Please search for: Not On The Wall.

You Say 3L3C7R0 And 1 Say…

May 19th, 2020 Comments off

It is simply ridiculous. However, it works every time. If you play it. I was a wee boy (13 or so) dancing (or trying to) caught the bug. There’s no difference what-so-ever… I honestly thought that it would change, now I can confess there’s absolutely no difference. What-so-ever!

Musically, it is close to 40 years? It doesn’t matter. Like a puppet. That’s crazy or you’re insane? Possible, I’m just stating a fact. When ever I listen to the music that I like, today; (2020-05-19) or yesterday? I might as well be 13 years old. The sound of the 303 + 808 and how bass music became global? Is it not 1983? The future?

I suspected that much, but in all honesty I did not know or I did not foresee this/it. I can’t say that I did. Nor am I saying anything of that kind. I just remember being 13 years old (1983) and asking everyone.

What is this track?

It is bizarre and there are tracks that I’m still searching for… close to 40 years later. That is culture to me or you are simply a retard? It is not entirely impossible. And I did actually met 1/2 of LFO and got one of the many missed tracks of a generic collection CD.

You can run, but you cannot hide.

You need to have corouge when you play (or be crazy). No short-mix, play the tracks through… be bold. Is this not to skewed? There’s a simpler way out of this? You could cut to something less complicingated (spelling)?

No, this is the music and this is what was planned/unplanned from the get go. Just do it. Just follow the original idea, do not falter under pressure and do not falter now. Just play what you intended. Then push hard. The bass.

– How low can you go?
– Drop it or Work that shit?

Well, I’m just not going to pretend, that I’m not pretending or that I might not be serious or pretending 101, 303 + 808.

Transformation/Renovation

April 28th, 2020 Comments off

The number of construction sites in SoSo is simply astounding. The building codes from the past were not just invented randomly… says the building from 1939.

And now you will be able to look directly into every apartment on two or three floors from either the subway or the opposite side of the house.

The number of demolition sites in SoSo is simply astounding. New buildings are getting erected closer and closer they stand. The building codes from the past were not just invented randomly…

Let Me Tell You A Story

April 23rd, 2020 Comments off

Norra Bantorget a long time ago (no, not that long ago! Neither 1939, 1976 nor 2020 respectively…***). Walking down a familiar inner city Stokholmian street. It is Saturday, turn around the corner Olof Palmes gata / Sveavägen again… the lights are on and you can hear the sub-bass from afar…

You approach and it intensifies… You know that all your friends and all the heads are there. You approach and the pure bass pressure and muffled sounds tells you that inside business is alright (as always). You’re still somewhat surprised (the sound system is delivering beyond expectation).

– This track does not have percussions like that? Is it a remix?
– No, it is the extra sounds of the building. The metal plates on the roof or in the basement are moving in unison.
– Fog engine? (I personally hate them). No, it is simply the difference between the inside and outside temperature. That is why there is water (condensation) running on the inside of the windows and why your eyeglasses are no longer opaque?

That would be unstoppable beats, breaks and bass. Steppa, tek, hard steppa, tech, the rollers and the bassline. Boys and girls going all crazy. Only for those who know… business. How long? Til’ it ends. it still the same 25 years later… and I realise again that it is never ever going to change. The experience, that feeling is never going to change. Not then, not now, not in the future… never. All I can feel is gratitude. I was there…

Dom & Roland - Lost In The Moment - 2020
Dom & Roland - Industry - 1998

It is the best d’n’b-album of this year. Again?

The roof plates rattling would be; Hunter and he has actually captured the exact sound… that is the warehouse sound. You know the track, but there’s extras? There’s the magical moment. A1 people stylee.

or … Delta or A Broken Heart, oh my Lord! That is science.

I remember…

– Upstairs neighbours are upset (the first Chinese restaurant in Stockholm/Sweden).
– Why is that?
– Your bass brought down the entire content of their bar including the china and cutlery to the floor.
– Hmm, ok, I see. That’s not good. Is it going to cause any problems for us?
– No. Not what so ever. It’s entirely their problem (if they can’t secure their bar and keep the bottles and china from falling to the floor).

Like I was told.

– Per pair of 18″ you need 2KW and then you set the amplifier to 50%? Limiter or EQ? No. You never need to or you will never play louder.
– Do you understand what I’m telling you?
– Yes. I do.
– So, the formula is?
– 2 x 18″ -> 2000W / 2…? 1000 Watts per speaker. Right. And that is the general’s wall.

That sound? Invincible sound. When the plates themselves are rattling, when the building is trotting along with the bass… Gammal är äldst. “Hunter”. That is culture. When all electrical things are shorted out because of heavy an unexpected rainfall?

– I am not leaving* until I have played my set.
– There are people here that expect me to play? Just bring back the power! Now!
– Come on? Let’s go back to the hotel. The night is finished**.
– I’m not leaving until I have played my set.

Stockholm’s drum’n’bass clan war left? Absolutely nothing. It just meaningless…

The bus used stop there, when I did my military service. In the signal corps, clime the telephone pole and tell the kabeltattare what to do.

I’m above you in the chain of command. And that means that you will have to do whatever I’m telling you to do. I am above you. I am the one who is in charge now. I’m with pluton 33 from the 3rd regiment as are you? That is my function.

My captain (Stålhandske) is in charge of you / me / and above in rank. But right now? In these woods? Then I am in charge and you and your boys, big truck will obey me. That is chain of command. S1 Enköping.

Hopper With A Camera?

March 24th, 2020 Comments off

  
However, I can assure and reassure each and everyone that it most definitely not Edward Hopper (1882-1967) with a camera. I know that for a fact. However, there are matching dates though.
