Cover September 2016 Mix

The beginning of the 80’s, dark future waves, industrial melancholia, pop distopia, post-something. All tracks where released between 1980 and 1982, except T.V.O.D. (the first release on Mute Records) in ’78 and the track from Belgian Kaa Antilope made in ’88. Tschik-Mo from Swiss girl band Liliput (Ex-Kleenex) is unusual reduced and less power-pop than most of their other tracks. Reponds Moi from the french synth-pop duo Mathematiques Modernes sounds more like a chansons than the post-synth-punk tracks of their only LP released in 1981. Kind of a wave from the past…

Cover August 2016 Mix

Sometimes while listening to music, birdsong is coming into my room through the open window and mixes up with the music. But sometimes the birds are in the vinyl grooves, recorded by the musicians in the fields and forests out there. Some of these tracks here are pure bird field recordings, like the first one taken from a birds-only records, the last short track recorded in malaysia, the piece by the french band Point Invisible and the recording from Lieven Martens Moana aka Dolphins Into The Futures. The other tracks used birds as sound sources. Arthur Lyman and John Kramer imitated bird sounds on their lps from 50s and 60s or used bird recordings. tschirp tschirp…

Cover Juni 2016 Mix

It’a an endless thing, the loop, in the best case nobody stops it. Andrew Pekler puts together a lot of wonderful loops, layering, more and more. Dustin Wong loops his guitar play. p0m and Dead Eight combine cassette- and computer-loops, Sesiones Periférico was recorded in Mexico City and is going to be released on the cassette-label Innernoise on June 9th at RaumΩStation in Zürich (with a concert of Dead Eight). Durian Brothers and Strotter Inst. work with modified turntables and records. Francisco López collected end grooved of vintage 78 records and created this track with the loops. Some call it beautiful repetitions.

Mai Mix 2016

Cover Mai 2016 Mix

All this music was re-released on vinyl in recent years. All music (except the Mind Over Mirrors track, wich was originally released on Gift Tapes in 2011) was recorded in the 80’s and released on cassette, though the Gagarin Kombinaatti album (recorded on cassette between 1983 and 1985) was never released. But now, more than 30 years later the album from Janne Koski, Tapio Onnela, Wici Wikström and Mika Vainio was released on double-vinyl by finnish label PUU. The Welttraumforscher Album Die Singende Sternlaterne was released in small number on it’s own Moniflabel, wich released selfmade cassettes since the early 80’s. The Muslimgauze track was originally released on the cassette compilation The Last Supper in 1984. The Breadwoman Album was released 1985, the Charles Cohen Album in ’88, the K. Leimer track in ’79.
Thanks Fred for the shiny idea for this mix and for borrowing the record and for selling all these great records!

Cover Maerz 2016 Mix

„Wasser ist der grösste Möglichkeitenstoff der Erde“, say Die Welttraumforscher, wich means kind of „Water is the biggest possibility-material on earth“. It is fluid history. It vaporises, raining down, just laying around or floating, streaming, splashing. It’s not only indispensable for every life on earth, but also sounds nice. Francisco Lopez who starts and ends this mix with environmental recordings from the Chafarinas Islands off the coast of Morocco above and under water. Tomoko Sauvage plays water filled bowls, Jean Guerin is using a trumpet in the water. „Hinter den sieben Wellen bewohnen wir die Zeit“ (Die Welttraumforscher).
We all know, two-thirds of all peoples suffer from water shortage. Meanwhile politicians and economists try to own and sell water. Let’s just think a about it for a moment and let it float…

Cover Februar 2016 Mix

From psychedelic synth repetitions and drony dream waves to reduced rave skeletons. Arpeggio is switched on, the beats are locked away deep down in the basement. Electronic patterns after patterns after patters into synthetic melody rhythms. All tracks produced between 2012 and 2015, except the monoton track from 1982.

Cover Januar 2016 Mix

It’s 20 years ago, i was searching for better music, but on this huge rave i kinda got lost and came to this low basement. Decorated with army nets and branches, this foggy floor kicked me to a totally other dimension as i went inside and the bass filled my body with it’s sonic waves. I never heard of this so called Jungle or Drum’n’Bass Music, but after this i was infected for quite some years. Thanks to Jungle Underground Records in Olten i found a lot of great records and then together with friends we formed the Tsunami Crew, organised partys and openairs and danced on a lot of D&B raves. It was a wild time, lot of great memorys in this mix from another time. All the tracks are from 1995 and 1996.
