Stop Calling It 3l3C7r0!

April 24th, 2020 Comments off

Once and for all. Please stop calling it electro!

It has nothing to do with whatever you think that you are doing.

Frankly, I find it offensive. In the same way that Swedish House Mafia doesn’t have anything to do with house music whatsoever. Fireworks and clown business in Las Vegas? House music or techno? PSI49NET is… this is electro.

Try Aril Brikha’s monumental Transmat release Deeparture In Time instead. A man possessed and a brilliant, brilliant album – it is the definition and the essence of a classic.

The year was 1999 and it is indestructible. A man possessed.

EDM? Come on. EBM was Electronic Body Music (for the hard bodies), IDM was Intelligent Dance Music (for the breaks people), but EDM Electronic Dance Music? What is that? What does it even mean?

Please just stop being silly. Electro is an actual genre and as far as contemporary music goes it is quite old at that. In any event it is as old as Hip Hop is. That would be from the 1980’s.

Yes, Transmat. It does not get deeper than that. Carl Craig ‎– More Songs About Food And Revolutionary Art. Do you even have a clue?

I implore you, just stop. Please. Because it is embarrassing.

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.

The Bug

April 23rd, 2020 Comments off

It is not going to disappear, ever… it is eternal music.
– So you are a fanatic?
– You better believe it. That would be more than 25 years in service.
– But why would you ask me that? – What compels you?
– I did not aks, you did I?

BREAK THE SILENCE
The quietest Rolls-Royce ever made, Phantom’s interior is the domain of both the bass drop and the pin drop. An acoustic haven perfectly tuned for hearing music, conversation, or purely your own thoughts.

YOUR PRIVATE SPACE
A sanctuary of peace and tranquility. Or a peerless venue for beats without a trace of background noise. Phantom is for those who hear what they desire – not what is imposed from the world outside.

The texts above makes you wonder – is it possible that Rolls Royce clientele have changed the past decade or so?

Key words: break, bass, drop, music, beats

Super-Kamiokande is the large* water Cherenkov detector. The construction was started in 1991 and the observation began on April 1st, 1996. The Super-Kamiokande is operated by an international collaboration of about 150 people and about 40 institutes from Japan, the United States, Korea, China, Poland, Spain, Canada, UK, Italy and France.

The Super-Kamiokande detector consists of a stainless-steel tank, 39.3m diameter and 41.4m tall, filled with 50,000 tons of ultra pure water. About 13,000 photo-multipliers are installed on the tank wall. The detector is located at 1,000 meter underground in the Kamioka-mine, Hida-city, Gifu, Japan.

One of the purposes of the Super-Kamiokande experiment is to reveal the neutrino properties through the observation of solar neutrinos, atmospheric neutrinos and man-made neutrinos. In 1998, from the observation of atmospheric neutrinos we discovered the neutrino oscillations which neutrinos are changing their types in flight. In 2001, solar neutrino oscillations were discovered by the observation of solar neutrinos. In 2011, the third neutrino oscillation mode was discovered by man-made neutrino observation.

The CP symmetry-violating effect in neutrino and antineutrino oscillations has a magnitude that depends on the Jarlskog invariant:

JCP,1= 1/8 cosθ13sin(2θ12)sin(2θ23)sin(2θ13)sinδCP

I Always Go For The Full Bucket

April 12th, 2020 Comments off

It is a very long time ago, yet it is still as unreal as it was then.

Legendaries? That just does not cut it… That would be the Elite of the Elite. The core of the culture. in a kitted Ford Focus (a small drive), weighting down the suspension (drop it to the floor), hard on both the left and right.
– Move over a bit (large men) will you? And then playing the bass?
– This here straight from the studio, just now, right now, it’s not released. Sounding alright?

On a side street, at the back, in central London? You will not forget. And I don’t.

– It’s that all you’re going to eat?
– Yes, I’m not that hungry.
– I always go for the full bucket.

Said… I am as lost for words now as I was then. I still listen intensely to the music. Decades later, and it is still as unreal.

The music? Eternal. Who dem’ be? I’m not telling…

I’m just trying to get through/surviving the set whilst reminiscing past times; Fabio & Grooverider 7th of April 2020 in the year of the Lord. rinse fm.

Beware! Too Late…

April 11th, 2020 Comments off

Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies, their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such, for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it.
