Cover Juni Mix 2017

This one goes out to Jan Jelinek, Berlin based Macro-Jazz eperimentalist since 20 years. He often use micro-clicks and samples from Jazz records embedded in warm electronics. He releases music under various names, started with Farben in 1998, wich was more on the Techno side than the other projects. There are also G.E.S. or Gesellschaft Zur Emanzipation des Samples (society for the emancipation of the samples) and The Exposures. Together with Andrew Pekler and Hanno Leichtmann (Static) he plays in the experimental Krautrockband Groupshow. And then the mix ends with Ursula Bogner. Maybe a pharmacist / mother, who started recording her synthesizer music at home in the late 60s but never released something. Maybe one more pseudonym of Jan Jelinek. But anyway, Recordings 1969-1988 from Ursula Bogner was the first release on Jelineks own label Faitiche, wich he started in 2008 and on wich he now re-released his fantastic LP Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records wich was originally released 2001 on ~scape.

Cover März Mix 2017

This is kind of a visual mix. Only picture discs. Often their artwork is quite awful, but there are some exceptions and some beautiful ideas. Sculpture makes picture discs with tiny film loops on it. You can film the record while playing and see different small animated pictures. That’s magic. Using telepathic communication Kohei Matsunaga, Lucretia Dalt, Laurel Halo, Rashad Becker, Julia Holter, Charlotte Collin and Grégoire Simon created mysterious layers of sound. They individualy recorded sounds and drew pictures and layered all together. The picture was printed directly on the record. There is a small series of 7inches with pictures from american photographer and artist David Horvitz printed on it (like the Lucky Dragon one). See ‚em here…

„The world-dream, the dream of the world, is somewhere on this world. We don’t know if it exists, and still we are exploring it“, from the first record from Die Welttraumforscher (1981).

Cover Januar Mix 2017

Those thin flexible, often square soundsheets called Flexi Discs startet to appear in the eary 1960ies as audio content of books or magazines or as promotional greetings sent by post. Still today, you can find them sometimes in magazines as the recent zweikommasieben Magazin or as a regular insert in Parking Lot. But there are also some labels dedicated to the Flexi Disc, like the Swiss label Flexi Disko. Smugglers Way is a compilation including 5 coulourful Flexi Discs and a 7″ magazine. The sound quality of the Flexis often is not very high and the playback is sometimes quite difficult, but it’s pretty cheap to produce. And, yeah, it’s big fun to play them…
