Will Long – Diskret aktivisme med synkoperet rytmik

Will Long “Long Trax 2” (Smalltown Supersound, 2018) – anmeldelse af Morten Østergaard Rasmussen

Et sted mellem meget behageligt og utrolig kedeligt. Det var, hvad jeg umiddelbart tænkte, første gang jeg lyttede til “Long Trax 2”, der er det andet album fra Will Longs house-projekt, som er udgivet under eget navn. Amerikanske Will Long er baseret i Tokyo og er ud over dette projekt mest kendt under aliaset Celer, under hvilket han har produceret en gigantisk mængde udgivelser. Derudover kuraterer han også pladeselskabet Two Acorns og er involveret i de to labels Normal Cookie og Bun Tapes. Læs resten

U.S. Girls – Sororal Feelings (in Copenhagen)

English May 18 2018 MI0003439231

U.S. Girls @ Hotel Cecil, May 6th 2018 – live review by Ivna Franic.

So apparently 2018 is the year I finally get to see some of my old underground heroes such as Félicia Atkinson, Circuit des Yeux and U.S. Girls live for the first time. About a decade since they’ve started out as experimental solo outings, some of them have gradually evolved into actual bands. And while Circuit des Yeux’s show a few months back suffered from letting the band run loose with a dash too many jamming moments, U.S. Girls’ Meg Remy keeps her 8-piece (!) ensemble focused throughout the show, any eventual jam out perfectly finding its place in the song’s dramaturgy.

Et Andet Sted – Making space for freedom of expression in nightlife (interview)

May 14 2018 unnamed

Interview by Cameron Pagett

An exciting and exclusive sit-down with the men (Thobias Molter, Sebastian Henriksen, Máni Sigurdarson, Mathias Stoffersen, and Søren Kinch) who have started one of Copenhagen’s favourite and most interesting club for DIY Electronic music. In a little under two years past Et Andet Sted started with the goal to bring a Berlin feel to the Copenhagen club scene, and create a safe place for expression in the local Techno and Electronic Community. From the first party until now, It has become an organisation that is firmly establishing itself in the fabric of the Copenhagen and International underground scenes with multiple events each month.

Fresh off a move from their first location in the Industrial region in Grønttorvet, Valby to Monastic club in City Center the club continues to gain notoriety and a broader following in the techno, nightlife and party scenes. Known for their community first and unorthodox features in the Copenhagen club scene, Et Andet Sted remains caught in a tempest of expectation, increasing popularity and the challenges that come with it. We are happy to present an in-depth look at the history of the club, the current situation and a nice view into their hopes and dreams for the coming years. Læs resten

Rune Bagge – Et musikalsk hamskifte

Kritik May 11 2018

rune baggeRune Bagge “Pink Dreams” (Northern Electronics, 2018) – anmeldelse af Alexander Julin, foto af Cameron Pagett

Rune Bagge debuterede forrige år med EP’en “Ingen Tak Til Systemet” på danske Ectotherm. Mens “Ingen Tak Til Systemet” mest af alt fremmanede en voldelig energi i de intensive drum’n’bass-influerede techno-numre, er der på hans nye album, og første fuldlængde LP, “Pink Dreams” plads til både finesser og ånderum. Udgivelsen står faktisk i så stærk kontrast til Bagges forrige udspil, at det er svært at høre, at der er tale om den samme artist. Læs resten

Yngel – Rundrejse og guitarhack i Indonesien

Kritik May 9 2018 Yngel2

Yngel “Indonesia” (Insula & Abstract Tits, 2018) – anmeldelse af Kim Elgaard Andersen

Yngel er sådan et herligt eksempel på, at verden er blevet mindre i positiv forstand. Man kan nærmest tale om udvekslingsstuderende. Indonesiske Senyawa var på Sejerø festival i 2013, og ad den vej mødte Emil Palme og Taus Bregnhøj, der udgør Yngel, dele af den eksperimenterende musikscene i Indonesien og besluttede at tage derover.
