So since Austria is a catholic country we get a week (in fact, it's ten days) Easter Holidays (actually, it's just three, but most people extend it to ten days)
I am sure wherever the last few mohicans of SC come from there will be some similar Easter holiday arranements.
Me: catching up on reading a stash of formerly unread weekly news magazines of this year, and practizing my newly dusted off coronet (which I started to play ten+ years ago and have only started to play again, it's fun but I need lots of de-rusting
hope you gain some insight into my mind with this. the writing is in fact very clear and concise, just some have an issue with grasping contextual thorny matters. nature and death is a big subject for my soul, and one that I do not take lightly - or lying down, for that clause.
I find writing poetry, however morbid, therapeutic in healing internal wounds and condescending iterations uttered by others in my lifetime.
there is a lot to gain from putting right the wrongs of misguided youth in diction. it is a contradistinction with possessiveness and materiality that I am not interested in. this societal onslaught and malfunctioning emotional sabbatical draws claret out the veins of any hardy soul.
and some of us...well, we've had too much of "them". I still agree with Klute on the "99% of shit that I find out in the street" poetic speech, "who don't know a fucking thing. And like I don't want these cunts, their fucking puerile attitudes. What I wanna do is to put something else out, that I like. And, you know, whoever else likes it will find it d'you know what I mean? And if nobody else in the whole world likes it I couldn't give two shits. If it doesn't sell one copy who gives a fuck. Because why not be true to what you want to do".
"Read Only Memory" is an all Path Optimist themed mix. Epiphany guitar, drum machines, Moog Sub Phatty and piano samples cobbled together in a 33 minute studio session where the aim is to shine a light on this niggling contemporary subject that shuts down the limbic system because of severed amygdala response.
I have set the price for this "track pack" - all my own tunes this time - at £5. Yes, a fiver.
Many favourites from different SciWax shows from the past on this one. Let's hope that the "Larry Heard style" personal tune will be there as well.
By the way, I read about forthcoming Nebula album on Discogs forum (https://www.discogs.com/group/thread/715952?page=2) but
for some reason I understood it would be coming on Subtle Audio
With a musical career of junglistic exploration spanning over two decades, the highly prolific Netherlands based producer FFF (aka Triple-Times-F) presents his Criterion Records label debut with three stunning pieces of forward thinking jungle only available on vinyl. The EP opens with the deep and dark atmospheric tones of ‘Badman Touchdown’, which expertly combines the experimentalism of vintage, drum and bass with rugged, ragga soundclash junglism. If you can imagine Remarc joining the Metalheadz crew, circa 1995 then you’ll be close to how this one sounds. Up next the ‘Sounds Of Summer’ fuses together a fierce blend of frantic, hard-stepping breaks and thunderous bass pulses juxtaposed by soothing, jazzy Rhode’s keys to create a perfect balance of light and dark elements. Rounding off the collection, FFF delivers a brutally effective, jazz-jungle fusion with ‘Usually Peaceful’ which meshes together tear-out amens and warm Reese bass drones with funkified guitar licks and metallic sounding, time-stretched, breakbeat manipulations.
Drum Cypha makes a welcome return to Criterion Records for his first solo label outing, and he brings with him two exhilarating excursions into the deeper side of drum & bass. With ‘Sun God’ we are presented with a series of hauntingly atmospheric pads and reversed keys, which soon evolves into an adrenalising fusion of rolling amen breaks, subsonic bass tones and electrifying mentasm flashes. ‘Ghosts Of Jupiter’ on the flipside layers rapid-fire, amen edits over a deep, rumbling bassline over ghostly pads and fragments of movie dialogue to create a precision crafted fusion of rugged and ethereal sounds.
...is a new project i mick buckingham have started to prolong the less depressing music in the foci's left catalogue. imbued with hope, the recordings are matured from 7 years of releasing on labels (since 2010 on audio gourmet). so the process and aesthetic remains similar, there are just subtle and perceptible differences to the sound.
in this thread i will catalog everything PO. the name also seeks to capture my DJ Beatz Bullah "Hot Bovril" mimicking garage, electro and hiphop beats inspired by the mockumentary series in the vein of Brass Eye, "People Just Do Nothing". so without further ado...here is the first PO 15 Minutes Of Fame.
