History + Perspective Is Important

I went here; to Brunkensbergstorg, Malmskillnadsgatan, it is situated in the absolute center of Stockholm at Kulturhuset.

I was thinking, that when I was young – it was the most disregarded part of the entire city center. In all honesty an non-visitable place for more reasons than one.

And that things do change… now it is fashionable.

However, it has more than 700 year’s history, including a decapitation. The square is named after a knight named: Johan von Brunkow.

He was decapitated in 1318 and the square bares his name til’ this day.

Because “berg” translates to mountain in Swedish. But a mountain is actually a hill in a Swedish context. Mountain or hill? It is dependent of height right?

In all senses of the word it is a convention. I saw someone today stumble over a 2 cm (1″) obstacle. True? Yes. You or I could do it. A hill or berg is tall or not. “Brunkensbergstorg”. Much later on at least two areas: “Brunkhuvudet” and “Brunkhalsen” was namned after him.

What about it? “Brunkhuvudet” and “Brunkhalsen”?

“Huvudet” literally means head and “halsen”, literally means neck in Swedish. John was decapitated in 1318.

I realize once again that I need to split this text…

Hello?

An ambient live set by KMRU that is nothing but excellent!

The intro is mesmerizing and exhibits some rather funny samples/field recordings. A snapshot of the “state” of the contemporary World if you will. Hello?

It comes highly recommended!

I want to go: there/here.

The Other [Minimal] One

DJ Premier is the best in this World.

There’s no question about that.

And I have been fortunate enough to say precisely that in person; it was very a long time ago.

The shortest loops possible, all and every time.

The sound is so… condensed, minimal and perfect.

What Is This Pressure? Destruction.

The one and only DJ STORM!

“First Lady”, gender? Non-valid, and I did change the heading from “What Is She Playing?” to “What Is This Pressure? Destruction.”.

For sure one of the best if not the best drum’n’bass DJ alive.

Mayhem and destruction. The set and the uncompromising musical pressure?

Pedigree, sure there is the Metalheadz heritage, but the skills? They can not and should never be questioned. The pure technicality and the selection?

That is pure talent, knowledge and the thing that separates a specialist from the rest.

It is the definition of being Elite. True steppa, and it is so hard to do… records at hand or not, it is an art and it is an artwork.

Hail, the one and only DJ Storm! Better than the rest. “The rude-girl Steppa!” (not my invention…).

“- Do I really need to have MC:s?”
“- No, but t is not my call. Sorry.”

In the silence and shadow of the drums and the basses; “Kill all MC:s” or simply shut up already or do it sometime…

The pressure? It is beyond, “One session”, it is dangerous and reckless playing. If you could just understand… Playing records like that?

“- What are you going to teach the people? What is the next track?”

That is my funeral right there. Simply rude playing.

“- Storm runnin’! watch the ride.”.

“- Save the people!”

One Love!

Randall The Vandal I

Impossibly hard mixing by: DJ Randall, Oh my Lord!

It’s just too much… but don’t get me wrong it is brilliant! At the same time it is completely destroying everything…

I cannot even leave my own home, my calm, cool and collected day, without a rewind in all tranquility?

Why? It is called drum’n’bass (or dumb and bass depending on who you are inquiring…).

As much as I hate them; the belief-systems, they do exist an I’m no different. I do too belong to one or two or more of them, the belief-systems.

My father was always opposed to that very notion or idea. However, no human can/will resist. Not even him? No. No-one can escape the: belief-systems… not even my late father.

And I’m too old to accept this kind of musical assault. I’m not having it (nor are my neighbors for that matter, assumption, therefore switching to the headphones or I’ll get evicted in a hurry.).

This is exactly the kind of reckless behavior displayed by: DJ Storm et al. There’s no regard what-so-ever to an unassuming citizen… literally destroying an honest hard-working simple citizen’s ability to live a normal life?

And DJ Randall? Honestly? Come on! Is there any consideration? “It’s on the Computer.” Is that supposed to help anyone? How, is that going to help anyone? Ever!

It is simply rude… I’m sorry. I need more information. Destroying: my day, week, month and year. This is just not acceptable! The whole thing is simply put unacceptable.

I wore this outfit (not the black neck, but initially alongside a face-mask) whilst visiting the Fridge in Brixton, London, UK a long, long time ago.

And I did subsequently have a very, very hard time finding a cab, to bring me back to where I originally came from: NW London.

The Jönköping Shuffle

Mentors are important and I claim it is true for every field of knowledge… theoretical as well as in study of the arts.

Personally, however every human non-destructive endeavor is art, by definition.

That, according to me (and possible my tutors) is a question of definition and that is well beyond of the scope of this text and what I’m actually trying to say/write/force onto reality.

Premise: you need to learn everything; yes, not excluding: walking, talking, climbing and cycling too. Being an educated human being is something grand and it needs to be; respected, appreciated and cherished!

Electronic music would pertain to the sphere of the arts’. So, what what exactly is the Jönköping Shuffle? A prime example could be the recently released: PSI49NET 103 & 104 12″ by the one and only A.Rother.

– Can you give any further information regarding the so called “Shuffle”?
– Sorry, I’m afraid I cannot do that.

However, I can assure you that it exists. You would have to look up: The Label. Waver, I’m not taking any responsibility. what-so-ever, not yesterday and not tomorrow.

My honest and heartfelt recommendation is the following, and it can never be anything but this simple advice. You just need to listen to the music. There’s just no other way around it, at all.

I am truly sorry regarding that fact and everything pertained to it. I’m eternally grateful for all the lessons and knowledge passed onto me. But, it is virtually impossible for me to extend my gratitude. Time is a passing so rapidly and immediate actions are needed.

“Case didn’t understand the Zionites. Aerol, with no particular provocation, related the tale of the baby who had burst from his forehead and scampered into a forest of hypoponic ganja. ‘Ver’ small baby, mon, no long’ you finga.’ He rubbed his palm across an unscarred expanse of brown forehead and smiled. ‘It’s the ganja’ Molly said. when Case told her the story.”
William Gibson, Neuromancer, 1984, (1993), HarperCollinsPublishers.

Actually inventing the future? Tall order for any woman or man…

PS. The photo has nothing to-do with Jönköping at all. It is in fact the “fade” as viewed from the balcony in the Bürg 2019 and nothing else. And, so says the Bürgmeister.

And by the way: the o.general thanks: the eternal creator. The bringer of the Word as it where.

The Ebony & Ivory Show

Those were the days.

Ebony or Ivory was late…

Then the bartender left and shortly thereafter Ebony or Ivory left too!

Leaving exactly one (1) individual at the venue, playing music.

It is by all accounts commonly known as the best set ever played – in the history of mankind!

Now, I do wonder why absolutely nothing was ever recorded, ever.

I mean during those eventful times; 15 odd years or so ago…

Un-Commented Thus Far

If this is not comedy on a supernatural scale I honestly don’t know what is?

It deserved/s an other Infinitely grander fate all together.

Iron SKy! It is pure genius, come on people show some love!
