KLF @t 3 am eternal : a tribute mix to the Chill-out era

March 14, 2016 Leave a comment
CAFQ61Z7The KLF, an initialism for “Kopyright Liberation Front”, and “Kings of the Low Frequencies” (also known as The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, furthermore known as The JAM. Following the February 1990 release of Chill Out, sheep had recurring roles in the duo’s output until their 1992 retirement. Drummond has claimed that the use of sheep on the Chill Out cover was intended to evoke contemporary rural raves and the cover of the Pink Floyd album Atom Heart Mother. Drummond and Cauty’s work often involved notions of ceremony and journey. Journeys are the subject of the KLF Communications recordings Chill Out, Space, “Last Train to Trancentral”, and also Adventures beyond the Ultraworld.

 

The Chill Out album depicts a journey across the U.S. Gulf Coast. I took that approach in making this tribute mix. Some British friends suggested I make this mix but in the beginning, I had no idea what to do, and more importantly how to do it. Most of what you’ll hear on the mix, is random and improvised. I only used one track from Chill out, most of the material is bootlegs, fan mixes by Bovine boy, El Strawb, samples used by KLF, remixes, moon landings, all accompanied by the movie The Rites Of Mu (Narrated By Martin Sheen). I hope it will be a rewarding voyage to you! At 3 a.m. eternal… ♫♫♫♫!

Plastikman / F.U.S.E. tribute

October 12, 2015 Leave a comment

plastikPlastikman. Richie Hawtin. The DJ and the producer have both been important in the developpement of electronic music, techno and dance music in general. While he may not be as relevant as he was 15 years ago, his back catalog, namely with Consumed, offers plenty of classics either with Musik, Sheet one or Consumed. The heavy deep bass and slow movements creep up to you like slow moving light in a black hole. You almost feel self absorbed in each tracks. I would call it claustrophobic techno. A truly unique and deeply engaging album which (depending on what you’re on) creates a steady and consistent atmosphere that is impossible to escape. Dark, minimal, but most of all insular in design, this work remains a timeless and almost genre-less ode to the relationship of music and audio-visual inner perception, boasting a near surreal paradox of a disconnected intimacy that is open to interpretation. This DJ tribute offers some classic Plastikman as well as F.U.S.E. (Further Underground Sound Experiments) Lots of stuff from the days of Plus8!

Electrocute & Ambient-techno tribute vol. 3

November 11, 2013 1 comment

Hi folks,

it’s been awhile since I posted here. I completely forgot to come back…I was stunned by Breaking bad’s ending, I’m still in awe of many things be it music, films and so on but too little time to chat about it..My Germans friends, such as Brian and Ivo convinced me to do a Krautrock sequel to the first mix, so I’ve been busy digging vinyls and rare gems from the 70’s ! But I also finally finished the 3rd volume dedicated to the 90’s era of ambient techno and such acts like Leftfield, LFO, Plastikman (Early Plus8), and so on. So here it is, I guess I’ll be back for more later! Until then keep digging music, and on wax if possible 😀

To be forgiven, I’ve made an electro mix, I was just playing around with Digital animal by Honey Claws which played on Breaking bad, and I just improvised the whole thing on CD as I don’t even own Traktor (yet!) nor a laptop nor most of these records on vinyl (sadly)…I hope you guys enjoy, it’s sort of a mixture of synth-pop, nu-disco, electro-pop and techno, and things heats up towards the end with Freak by L.F.O. which was used in Gaspar Noé’s film ”Enter the void’‘! I don’t think this record ever left my bag since I got my mitts on it in 2003, pure techno bliss by Mark Bell..And an outstanding video too!

I would like to thank the store in Chinatown where I bought an energy drink which tastes like meh but gives a whole lot of energy ( :
