Windsor – More then a year

June 14th, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Windsor More then a year

Sometimes you listen to certain track, and it just stays in your head… and you want to listen to it again and again. “More then a year” from Windsor  is one of these tracks for me. Lush with deep pads, a slow kick and a great looped vocal. The second track “I am fascinated” feels more progressive.. but keeps the deep atmosphere. A very warm release,  sounds for rainy days as well as a summer evening.. a very promising first appearance. There’s not much to say about the artist/s.. the FB page dates to the beginning of June, the upload is 4 days old. I just know that this is produced in Berlin and i am looking forward to find out more. Have a listen, good stuff!

OneBeat Experimental Sessions#3 feat. “Wermonster as Eugénie” LIVE, 13.04, 21h

OneBeat Experimental Session 3 with Wermonster as Eugenie

Friday, the 13th of April, OneBeat’s experimental session goes into the third round. They invited Wermonster, the notorious psychedelic beat maker to perform a improvised live set under a new project name called “Eugénie”. He won’t be playing his usual live-set, instead this time we’ll go down to drone, noise & ambient.

“EUGÉNIE
is a new musical project 
It´s named after one of the characters in Sade´s “La philosophie dans le boudoir”
I play the guitar, the sp404, the sp303 and other stuffs.
There´s no beat.
There´s no sequencer.
It sometimes sounds Drone, sometimes Ambient or Noise, sometimes all at the same time.
It´s an experiment.
It keeps evolving…”

lukas dj set michelberger hotel

On friday the 23.03 i played some of my favorite records at the Michelberger Hotel lobby.  Jazz, Soul, Downtempo, Deephouse.. lots of the stuff i have been listening to lately. I uploaded the first 3 hours of a 6 hour set.. quite a bit more downtempo stuff going on in the first part, and i only managed to record the first 4 hours as my old macbook’s memory run full. Last 3 hours where pretty much mostly deephouse.
My favorite part is the start anyway, mixing up the old and the new.. enjoy!!

Music by “Halls”

Halls – Lifeblood. from Ben Symonds on Vimeo.

Halls – I Am Not Who You Want from The Sounds Of Sweet Nothing on Vimeo.

I really like music by Halls. It’s the solo project of south London-based musician Samuel Howard.  He combines “looped electronic samples with sparse vocals” with dense reverbs. The video for “Lifeblood” was created by Ben Symonds using footage from the BBC’s “Planet Earth” and “Frozen Planet”. Amazing outcome and works really well with the music.

Be sure to check out the Fragile EP on Bandcamp.

Uphigh Collective

December 4th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Last night i discovered the Uphigh Collective. A group of musicians from Belgium making tunes that as they say are: “Razor-sharp pieces of future soul, boppin’ from the deceptively light and skippy to whirlpool synthlines and hydraulic sub pressure. All trademarked by a signature lick of R&B gloss and sunken subs with ultra-sparse rhythm architecture”. I was quite impressed by their song “Blend”, which is performed live in a Brussels based radiostation and sung by DELV!S (check below). Amazing voice and definitely worth sharing again, although this stuff is already a year old. Strange enough, some tracks don’t have many views/plays on youtube or soundcloud. And let’s not forget to mention the label that is releasing some of their stuff: On-Point Records, rooted on vinyl culture and putting out lots of other great tunes. I really like the vibe.. big up Uphigh Collective!
