Fresh Blood ‘Locked Groove’ article and interview @ Pulse

fresh-blood-locked-groove_zps2d053b93

‘Antwerp-born, Berlin based Locked Groove, real name Tim Van de Meutter, has been popping up seemingly everywhere lately. Tale Of Us can’t seem to get enough of tracks like the forthcoming ‘Maat’ and ‘Enigma,’ and just yesterday George FItzgerald included ‘Enigma’ (out soon on Hotflush Recordings) in his recent FACT mix.

Though it was first Hotflush boss Scuba who noticed Tim’s ability to infuse emotion into even the toughest of places, snatching Van de Meutter up instantly. From there, Tim’s genre skipping sound has wound up on labels like 2020Vision, Permanent Vacation and Hivern Discs, with styles ranging from hip-shaking Chicago infused house to melancholic, dreamlike deeper grooves, and straightforward techno.

Though no matter what the style, his tracks always have one thing in common – soul. Well, that, and the ability to move you. But according to Van de Meutter, that’s one and the same.… read more

CAT023 Caustic Window van Richard James (Rephlex Records) @ Kickstarter

CAT023 Caustic Window – The Legendary Record by Richard D. James!

the holy grails of Electronic Music by Richard James, aka The Aphex Twin, aka Caustic Window!

‘Back in 1994, there were plans of releasing a full LP of music from Richard D. James, aka The Aphex Twin, under his “Caustic Window” moniker on his own label, Rephlex Records.

This album unfortunately never saw the light of day until around 1999, when Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq) granted a rare interview with the Aphex Twin fansite,joyrex.com (no longer active). In the interview, Mike described the tracks in detail, and went on to explain that only 4 people at the time were known to have a vinyl test pressing of the album – Richard James, Chris Jeffs (aka Cylob), Grant Wilson-Claridge (co-founder of Rephlex Records) and Mike himself. Each person was sworn to never make copies of the music, and for 20 years, not a single track had ever been commercially released (with the exception of two tracks that appeared on compilations).

Until now. ……’ 

‘So, with official blessings from Richard James and Rephlex Records, if you contribute 16.00 USD (little under 10.00 GBP or around 11.20 EUR) and become one of the only people legally allowed to own a digital copy of the famed Caustic Window LP ripped straight from the vinyl in a lossless audio format that we will as a community vote and decide on. It’s a superb way to support the artist by legally purchasing something you will never get to purchase otherwise – Rephlex has no plans and will not press this record commercially. 

Be a part of this unique opportunity and show your hardcore fan support for Richard’s music and own some awesome electronic music!

For complete details about the record and it’s tracks, see the FAQ which will be updated in the next few days, or head on over to WATMM.com and join the community to learn more.’

In het kort. Deze verloren gewaande vinyl van Richard James werd bij dit project terug verkrijgbaar gemaakt. Een exemplaar kwam via Discogs  in de handen van WATMM terecht, en deze brachten deze opnieuw uit via een Kickstarter-project. Dat er veel belangstelling was, bewees het bedrag dat ze verzamelde t.o.v. het het bedrag dat nodig was. Ik heb de downloadcodes gekregen maar ik heb nu geen idee hoe anderen deze muziek kunnen beluisteren.

Caustic Window aka Aphex Twin aka Richard James @ Kickstarter

‘A once-in-a-lifetime chance to own one of the holy grails of Electronic Music by Richard James, aka The Aphex Twin, aka Caustic Window!

Until now.

Fast forward to 2014, when a mysterious seller listed the album on the music website Discogs for sale at a high asking price. We Are The Music Makers, aka WATMM.com, which succeeded joyrex.com as the web’s premiere source for electronic music, discussed the possibility of this “holy grail” of electronic music releases finally seeing the light of day, albeit from unfortunately leaking online once a buyer had obtained it.…

Hiele’s mix @ Entr’acte

Na Yves de Mey, Pauwel De Buck, Rutger Zuyderland en vele anderen  werd nu ook Hiele gevraagd door Entr’acte om een mix te maken.

naar mijn gevoel een zeer overwogen fijne mix, maar luistert u voornamelijk zelf.
