cambrian line release

My good friend James runs the great label Cambrian Line, and just upped some “name your price” goodies. A great chilled track by lovely Low Line Relay, alongside Darko Kustura with his deep house stomper “Hazard”, and  James himself under his moniker Borth Sea Defence with Ynyslas (Reprise). Way to go, full support for the Cambrian Line (also recently relaunched with a nice new website). Go check the other releases, some truly good stuff!

Session #5 – Improvised compositions for silent film w/ ELEPHANT live – 09.11 21h

onebeat-experimental-session-5-feat-elephant

OneBeat Berlin is back to Joao Cocteau in Neukölln for session 5 of the experimental series.
This time featuring the trio ELEPHANT to play a live jam session to accompany silent film sequences.

“ELEPHANT are the ‘contemporary melodic groove collective’. Drums, bass and piano by Christoph, Antti and Marco. Various elements from jazz, popculture, classical, contemporary and electronica, whilst improvisation is the underlying core.”

Based on silent film sequences the following concept is linep up for the night:

For the session we’ll work with a wide range of footage, not exclusively from silent films but coming mostly from around the 1920s and 1930s. The night will be divided into 3 20min parts, each representing a different theme and divided by short breaks. ELEPHANT will be improvising to a sequence they will have seen before, but never played or rehearsed to.

We’re looking forward to it. Check in on Facebook www.facebook.com/events/378658952209262, listen to some more ELEPHANT tunes on www.onebe.at/en/artists/elephant or visit www.weareelephant.com for more insights.

Hey, Rube! – Can You Hear Me Mutha?

October 22nd, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by

hey, rube - Can You Hear me Mutha?

Inspired by Quantum Bleep’s great review of the Hey, Rube’s “Can You Hear Me Mutha?” (Steel Tiger Records) i couldn’t help but to publish it here so more listeners find out about the album.

“Hey Rube! is the new vehicle for Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire) and Steve Cobby (Fila Brazilia) to drive all over their legacies. ‘Can You Hear Me Mutha?’ features eight examples of their studio time together, touching on undefined fusions of electro, loungey sounds, dub and loping hip hop. Expect to hear at a festival near you sometime.” via boomkat

My favorite track is most definitely Pimpdaddy, i play it again and again. Enough said, listen to this gem.
As James states: “if you don’t buy it, then shame on you!”

OneBeat Experimental Sessions#4 w/ Get High Fiona LIVE & Viva con Agua – Friday 28.09 21h

September 26th, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by

Fix the date: On friday i’ll be running round 4 of the OneBeat Experimental Sessions.

For this special edition for 1 year of the session, OneBeat Berlin invited the Balkan electronica duo “Get High Fiona” to play live and the Social Good Partner Viva con Agua for a short presentation about their sustainable work.

“Get High Fiona play a mix of world music, experimental electronica and soul. It’s hard to define but instantly makes you sense the depth of the emotions they put in their songwriting. Biljana plays bass on a keyboard, makes fills and sings, looping and filtering her voice. Geronimo is the multi-instrumentalist behind the main sound collage, playing the guitar, piano and wavedrum, creating beats and breaks with his computer.

Viva con Agua is raising funds and awareness for drinking water projects of the German Welthungerhilfe. But aren’t they from Hamburg and what do they do exactly? Where does the money go to? We invited Olaf from Viva con Agua to do a 10 minute talk about Viva con Agua in Berlin, their projects, activities, network, some numbers and of course their main topic: water.”

More about Get High Fiona on www.get-high-fiona.de and check Viva con Agua on www.vivaconagua.org

Start 21h, 28.09 at João Cocteau, Kienitzer Strasse 98/
12049 Berlin
Facebook RSVP: www.facebook.com/events/142997222510683/

Entry is free as always.

OneBeat Experimental Sessions is an event format aiming to explore the experimental side of (electronic) music, music performance and performing (visual) arts.
