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…”

I fall in love again…..

A Newcomer from Glasgow. His music shaped from his heart and soul. Waving melodies, which breaks on the impulsive bass in beautiful fine and fragile mosaics.

Folktek – the art of sound

August 17th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

harmonic field

A friend of mine recently posted a video of the “Harmonic Field ver.2″ which is the instrument featured below and above. I had to know who builds these things and there you go: Folktek. The artist duo builds lots of these experimental instruments in families. The different families combine different approaches to manipulate sounds, such as sound from accoustic sources, delay/looping/echo or actually the electricity that runs through humans. The Harmonc Field Instrument, for example, closes a circuit of electricity that comes through the human body and is therefore played by touch and with something that runs through us.

Here’s what they say about themselves:

Folktek is an artist collaborative formed by Arius Blaze and Ben Houston and coming to include the video and digital works of Drew Mcyntire (Big Pauper, Token Recluse Records). Folktek is folks, specifically artists working with a passion for sound as the basis for the work presented here.

We work with all arts and consider ourselves a part of a relatively underground movement of a second renaissance. We write books, bind books, work with wood, DJ, metalsmith, paint, sew, make lamps, music, ping pong paddles, boxes, digital instruments, film works, photography, sound art installations, masks and naturally we dance. Folktek is not a major company and we’re generally opposed to major corporation. These works are made by our hands and with our minds and incorporate years of study.

Check their website for lots of insight, inumerous instruments and images at http://folktek.com/
I would just love to be able to play around with these. Amazing work!

David’s Lyre – In Arms (Pearson Sound Remix)

June 7th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

A new favourite by Pearson Sound.

Pearson Sound is what David Kennedy calls himself when he doesn’t feel like calling himself Ramadanman, and this remix of “In Arms” is a sparser, more insidiuously impressive effort than Bombay Bicycle Club could muster: lax percussion herding along a dismantled house groove and harsh 808 smacks. Light-headed music for pale days

Today i uploaded 2 new tracks for the OneBeat artists RTZ23 and Wermonster. I like both a lot and both upcoming artists have a style of their own. Check their profiles on the OneBeat artist page: http://www.onebe.at/de/kuenstler/ (german) or english at http://www.onebe.at/en/artists/
Atomkraft by Wermonster is unreleased and exclusive to our Radio broadcast through reboot.fm the past weekend. Listen below:

Wermonster – Atomkraft by OneBeat

Pink bunny suits was previously published on Trackdonalds, but is new to OneBeat, so well worth to spread this downtempo tune.

Zomby – Natalia’s song

May 30th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

I am just in the mood for this. Released this month as a single, this is the first thing Zomby released under his own name since the One Foot in Front of the Other mini-LP in August 2009 (src).
Subtle.. dreamy.. unsettling. Just my thing.

Artist recommendation: ACRE

April 11th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

I recently discovered ACRE from Manchester, UK. He produces some really great tunes, experimental with lots of bass.
I can´t really find much about this dude.. no bio, just plenty of releases on discogs. Be sure to check him out on his soundcloud, bandcamp or twitter. His “Be Mine In Outer Space EP” is free to download.
Listen below (my favourite is Ghatt.. pure love for this bass monster)..

Lompret & Stoubish for Input Selector – Episode 79

February 28th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

The very promising duo Lompret & Stoubish made a excellent experimental downtempo and hiphop podcast for Input Selector in January 2011 (i posted about Input Selector before)… Great tracklist, head nodding guarantee!
Input Selector writes:

“Our collection is being enriched today by its 79th edition, going through another dimension. In effect, this sequence presented by Lompret (who we introduced through his wonderful jazz session) and Stoubish (the last newcomer in the team) will be our first Hip Hop podcast. These two parisians both seem to have a promising future, they compose and share on Lompret’s soundcloud page, and have already dropped mental tracks.”

Enjoy the music!
