Shed - Citylicker
? - ?
T++ - Allied
Distance - Feel Me
Pinch - Lazarus

2562 - Moog Dub
2562 - ? (assuming from the production)
2562 - ? (ditto)

Horsepower Productions - Log On (Dub)
Shed - Masque (A Made Up Remix)

hra! i dont know what the hell sort of mc escher 3D dystopia you created for the flyer matt but I loves it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

dystopia is what i aim for...

i used this to make it: http://www.contextfreeart.org/ : a design grammar for making lines and boxes and that kind of stuff. no "trace vector from bitmap" vibes in this one, my new years resolution is to curb my vector trace addiction.

what time would 2562 be playing?

Not 100% certains yet but probably start between 12 and 1am and he'll play for 2 hrs.. will put set times up later..

For those of you who might know the 2562 stuff but are not familiar with AMUS, here's the linkage::

greetings freaxxx

this is a message about the next under_score:

essential infos:

A Made Up Sound vs. 2562
( Subsolo / Philpot / Tectonic )

+ under_score djs:
Jim Petherwick
Luke Malcher
Placid

Saturday 2nd February 2008 / 10pm - 4am / £4
@ The Tube



writing:

under_score are proud to present Dave Huismans aka A Made Up Sound aka 2562. Hailing from the Dutch electronic heartland of Den Haag, Dave's debut releases have taken both the dubstep and techno worlds by storm. He is currently creating some of the most exciting and convincing fusions of the two sounds heard to date, and his music has won acclaim from top djs in both scenes.

Huismans will showcase both his recording aliases; A Made Up Sound for Subsolo records in Berlin (an offshoot of Shed's Soloaction label) and 2562 for Pinch's Bristol based Tectonic, in a special 2 hour set which will move from deep techno to dubstep.

His futuristic and energetic sound fuses raw Maurizio style dub techno, the percussive, skipping drum programming of 2-step, lush Detroit synths and of course the deepest and heaviest submerged bass to shake your bones.

Those who witnessed 2562 at the massive Subloaded dance in October will know first hand his prowess at moving the dancefloor and if you missed it, here is your second chance.

In support we have a selection of Bristol's finest techno djs; Jim Petherwick, Luke Malcher, Placid ( under_score ) playing the hottest electronic sounds around.  including maxibeat.

Yes very cool indeed!!!  But could I incorperate it into logic if I wanted to?

not really...

but you could download rebirth (for free now i think) and use it as a VST (i think)

http://www.rebirthmuseum.com/

By the looks of that website you can only d/load the rebirth 'refill' for reason. If you buy or d/load rebirth you can 'rewire' into logic though.
Think rebirth was the first bit of music software I ever used, used to bloody love it  Love

I think you can download the CD image for the full software too, its a bit hidden though.

yep, rebirth was bad. rebirth / fasttracker 2, happy days.

Good booking. Quite interested to see what Stop The Bus is like  Two Thumbs

Start the Bus you chief  Bad Teeth

It's Edwards with a lick of paint surely can't be that different.

Not just a lick of paint I suspect. Edwards is a shithole full of townie tossers. Start the Bus will be classier and probably full of annoying students rather than townie tools  Two Thumbs

You should come to the Bank tonight. Reckon you'd enjoy it  Two Thumbs

sbd -  i think the people behind it are the same people who do sheffield's nr1 trendy chief-pub (*) "bungalows and bears" (used to be the old fire station)

(*) actually it's quite nice but it's marketing ethos / extent of brand management present is painful at times.

1. chis duckenfield is a badman. this is a great record by him: http://www.discogs.com/release/243157

2. did you know that the famous "Watch yer bassbins I'm tellin ya" sample used by Altern8 was uttered by chris duckenfield?

On the latter, yes, on the former, no. Is the RAC track him? Prior to SWAG Chris and Richard Brown used to record as RAC as Warp. I actually used to buy records off Chris at the Warp shop as a youth. I always found it a bit scary as I knew nothing about Detrot techno or Chicago house then, and they used to stock shitloads of that stuff. It was a top shop… RIP  LIGHTAH!

yep it's the RAC track. great 2step-ish techno... i used to go to the warp shop a fair bit, it closed (or turned to fopp) shortly after i started buying vinyl though. i didn't have a clue what any of the tunes were though.

Yeah, it turned into Fopp. To start with they kept a big vinyl department upstairs (which is where the Warp record label offices used to be before they moved to 'The Ballroom' of some old building near Glossop Road baths), but ragged it off after a year or two. Bizarerly the bloke who used to serve me when I shopped in the vinyl bit at Fopp went to London and ended up working in PR. Had no idea until I met him at Cargo and he said "who are you… I used to sell vinyl to you". I said "Matt from iDJ" and he went "that's weird, I'm Lewis from Emms and I've been speaking to you on the phone for the last year and never knew".

Who'd have thunk etc.

Sheffield in the area this weekend  Slayer Steel City party vibes  Slayer

indeed. the upstairs used to be OK for a while. I used to spend a lot of time in there ignoring all the quality detroit / chicago house and techno and just buying drumcode and primate records.

anyway, have a goodun 2nite etcetc..

i've got the utah saints first album on tape. it's well boss.



I think you would really dig the Shaman Album - You can borrow the tape - its a classic

techno isnt a genre that generally translates well to album format. usually its a case of artists putting a load of unrelated unreleasable fodder onto a double 12. no good for the home and no good for the floor...whats the point?!

but yesterday i picked up 2 really good techno albums that have come out recently:

cristian vogel : the never engine http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q317/moochach/df21_irbm.gif
dettman/klock: scenario http://www.juno.co.uk/ppps/products/292227-01.htm&highlight=klock

some more classic techno/house that werks in LP format:
cristian vogel: dungeon master
vainqueur: elevations
surgeon: force and form
ricardo villalobos: alcachofa
luomo: vocal city
daft punk: homework
the other people place: lifestyles of the laptop cafe

what other techno/house dance long players would hijack recommend?

Really liking the Klock/Dettmann stuff.  Someone should book them asap.  I guess Klock might be hard to book though as he's resident at Bergheim if I'm not mistaken.

funny you should say that, we're not doing it but....

343  General / The Forum / Re: techno albums are generally shit on: December 13, 2007, 17:47:41
yep, there aren't really many. Also, the is it an LP or a double EP? thing that puffin mentions kicks in a lot. There a loads of good techno double EP's

But any way, here's a few more LP choices. presumably compilations don't count:

The Dave Clarke album Archive 1.
Mika Vainio : Metri
Surgeon : Communications
Neil Landstrumm :  Bedrooms and Cities.

Basically sell by dave hit the nail on the head here. If a producer comes out with 4 sides of great techno bangers, it's a great collection of tracks but can't be regarded as a single body of work in the traditional album sense. Or they throw in a mixture of stuff and try and express some "vision" over the trakcs as a whole and it rarely works. Cristian Vogel can do it well i think, Neil Landstrumm as well.
