Petit Frère

June 21st, 2018 Comments off

“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.

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

System Burial?

“No sound can test, so you can bring them on.”

Wow, that’s funny and quite a claim apart from being an excellent opening track and one, two or possibly three quite heavy samples.

Fabio & Groove upsetting again. Lovely!

Electronic Music From The Lost World: 1998-2001

January 30th, 2018 Comments off

Of course it had to come to this.

The lost battle, what extraordinary music and the sentiment is very much retained.

That would be ASIP and you’ll find the digital version here: 1998-2001.

The title is excellent, by the side-way. After all it is: Christian Klein.
