Radio Resistencia with live Murw

RR_logoThis Thursday (25th of February) a new Radio Resistencia session wil take place at Kapitaal Utrecht… live on stage we have Murw from Utrecht… he was present on the Kamp Holland compilation I released some years ago… around that time he also performed live for Radio Resistencia… back then quite a noisy improvisation site with live electronics…

This time most likely the live set will be more dance music orientated… this is a new direction for Murw… he is experimenting with live techno… still improvised at some points… and also still present is the musicians’ interest in lo-fi electronic sounds… so some chip tune sounds and elements will be present… but also some more pounding techno tunes…

We start around 20.00 hours CET and end around 23.00 CET… entrance is free… as always… I will spin some records and so will dj Alacidus…

Here is a bit of Murw live at the Gransnapolsky Festival from a few weeks ago…

Vrystaete update

Vry05_V1Next to the already announced Gooiland Elektro compilation and the Neugeborene Nachtmusik 7 inch a new Vrystaete release is in production…

This 5th release on Vrystaete is by Neurobit… a name not unknown to people who follow ET activities… Neurobit has been present on ET ever since the “Kamp Holland” compilation LP… the same musician also operates under the alias of Former Descent… also know from various appearances on ET…

Anyway Neurobit is back… while his previous Petit Enfant 7 inch was rather electronic orientated minimal music… a bit reminiscent of Terry Riley in a way… sort of chip tune drones… this new record is much more organic sounding… tranquil and relaxed ambient/drone sort of music… invoking temple and rainforest like atmospheres… and more Philip Glass and Steve Reich like as Riley… to stick to references in the minimal music world…

The record is expected at the end of March and will come with a nice art print…

Here is a full track preview…

Ocean Floor and Father Murphy

Recently I added the absolute great releases by Belgian label B.A.A.D.M. to the webshop… especially the Frederik Croene record is one I simply love… it is a piece of dark and haunting organ music…

oceanfloor_cvrIn that vein I have some other records waiting to go online… one of them is by Ocean Floor… a project from Bristol… the “Jupiter” album was released on tape first and is now available on vinyl… the music on the album is lighter and less dark as the Frederik Croene… mostly due to fact no church organ was used but an harmonium… which is a small chamber size organ… “Jupiter” is a blending of electronic and the sound of the harmonium… resulting in spacious sound tapestries… it is psychedelic and trippy in the same way as the krautrock/kosmische scene music by (early) Tangerine Dream… and yes the  influence of this legendary band is very clear… but still “Jupiter” is an amazing album…

Next to that I have some copies of the new 10″ by Father Murphy… an Italian band which has been making music for over a decade… and I must admit that I only came across them recently on the “Nostra Signora delle Tenebre” compilation by Backwards… on which their piece was one of the highlights…

fathermurphy_cvrNow there is this new 10″… with music which is reminiscent of early Coil in some way… mixed with some elements of Duhkha/Bex… so expect some post-industrial music hinting at various styles and genres… dark occult psychedelic stuff… quite unique… and both tracks are a true listening experience…

Here is one piece by Ocean Floor…

And here is one of the two pieces from the Father Murphy 10″…
