When I found out from Heiner that there was a Neil Landstrumm mix done that he'd put together I had to ask for it. It's been years now since the last all Landstrumm mix on Bleep and it's high time there was another that included more of his recent stuff. So here it is, check 'er out!
News: March 2010 Archives
"Here is a recording of the preparations for the gig in Kassel- I'll warn you now, this is raw as hell and very much on the experimental side. Spandex sent me some self sequencing perpetual techno machines for the G1 nord modular, some of which I butchered, and was also inspired by to create some of my own. "
Seeing as how BeNi has a monthly residency at SO36 in Berlin, he's going to attempt to record his mixes more often for us. This particular one that he sent over and I've Bleep'ed was played at SO36 on March 8th of this year. It's not the type of stuff you all may know BeNi for, but isn't it nice being surprised now and then?
It's been a long time coming, it seems like TSR's Skacid EP is finally nearing something physical. As in it looks like Jerome Hill has grabbed it and is going to release it as Don't 18.
Same video clip as was originally posted is being used for promo. It's still as awesome and odd as the first time I saw it. Check it out again. You wont' regret it.
Somehow or another via my relationship with Dj Dro San, Dj Mem and Dj Urbe I was put in touch with Ze Mig L. I'm rather glad it happened as today's Bleep is an epic slab of Techno and it wouldn't have happened if it weren't for those guys urging him to get in touch.
Ze Mig L has been releasing records for over a decade now and if you want to know about that aspect of the fellow then you can't go wrong by checking out Discogs. If you just want to go on to the Bleep show then by all means, please do...
JE5 has contributed the latest Signals mix and the tracklist is a whopper! It's a mix of Techno the likes isn't seen too often. It moves from strength to strength and will undoubtedly get some big numbers.
I met 'Little Liquidize' last year via Myspace. Yes, Myspace is actually handy once in a while. I checked out a few of her broken beat Techno sets and offered her a Bleep spot right away. Flash forward to about 2 weeks ago when the guest mix finally arrived courtesy of a mutual friend (Marcin M.).
Mark Hawkins has put together another set under his ### moniker. It looks like it spans a good chunk of time and styles and will probably benefit anyone who needs a Techno set to listen to while sitting in the sun.
I had mentioned the Luke's Anger set plus interview over at the Fenchurch site without realizing that there were even more goodies sitting there right beneath my nose. Debasser, Michael Forshaw and Ben Pest, alongside some others as well, but those are the ones I'm grabbing.
Not exactly full length sets it seems, but even 20 minutes of mostly new Ben Pest was enough to make my day.
One of my favourite distributors has a booth at this years Bloc festival. You like music? Check em out.
Today being 3-03 is the driving force behind the Acid House theme in this week's Bleep Radio show. I would have missed that small coincidence entirely if it wasn't for Malcolm noticing it and bringing it to my attention some 2-3 months ago.
Acid is what snared me and began my interest in electronic music. My very first experience with it was on a local radio station back in the 90's called "Energy 108". On that station Richie Hawtin's old "Transmissions" radio series was aired and Terry Mullan was the first show in that series I caught. To this day I still appreciate it. It was shortly after that I began finding my way to parties in Toronto to check this stuff out first hand.
And now we're all here. Bleep bleep.
In one respect the site took a bit of a hit this month. It had much less visitors than last month. If I were an attributing man I'd say it was because of the lower number of posts. There just wasn't much going on this month. However, there was an Adsense record set this month of over $15. Clearly quantity is not needed. I'm glad the GB per month number is lower. Despite having "unlimited" from my host I am also aware that as the resident of a virtual server I can affect the other sites on the same machine as me. Too much bullying can get you in trouble.
Yesterday I began something 'new' that I will likely continue. Tossing up a post whenever a record order is made, or in the case of a Deejay.de order, when it is sent out (Deejay allows me to slowly build an order up over the course of a month). This will allow you all to see what records I'm picking up, whether they're new, old, re-released or what have you. I urge you to comment on those posts with what you've picked up as well. We're all bound to stumble across some stuff we wouldn't have discovered!
