end of an era and the world’s worst garage sale

death of the C2 live rig
death of the C2 live rig

rest in pieces old “friend”. I actually really hated this rig, but it allowed for 10 distinct triggers and the pvc tubes worked great for loop trigger while the pd-8’s handled more drum like duties. It survive the belly of planes in nothing more than a duffle bag and over almost 4 years of sporadic gigs, installations and other abuse. It only needed one small wire resoldered in one of the tube triggers. It was treated with utter disdain. Switched from an old Alesis DM and Akai Mpx to just an Alesis sample rack, which is built a little wimpy, but really works great for me. Anywho, my point is, in general no one cares about shows, but I got some killer workouts.

The new trigger rig build is almost completely flat and will actually need a bit of a weighted plate to affix it to an xstand or something. working on the wiring harnesses here and there, no rush, like I said, no big demand for live dance industrial just douchebags with weak “drops” and shitty horn loops from a $20,000, $50,000, ???,000 table of gear they can ghost knob.

the roland pads were from a trade, the wood, pc, foam were all scavenged and customised, and a few dollars in piezo discs, 2 dollar shop bungees? fuck you steve aoki, fuck you. -xxxooo C2

Don Quichote rides again…

As noted in the manifesto, this is a resource that primarily lives outside of the status based social web and does a damn fine job of informing listeners of new releases that are available for free or cc license but also very lovingly lists all proper direct band contacts and ways to donate if available. Touché! This is a prime example of outside the generel social media web (FB at least), sometimes touching the social web but transiting really high quality interested parties who not only stream C2 in particular but have a really good hit rate to also check out our wider catalogue and even donate.

Cheers to the person or persons behind this repository. Sure it is on a corporate blog platform, but it is much more open than the gatekept facebook feed, and in terms of presentation is open and honest about all the linking and share buttons in use as far as privacy is concerned. If moderately savvy, you don’t need to let any of them pwn your browser or life, just enjoy a very well curated list of dark music available for free or donation. Bonus, you can brush up on your German.

sehr gut!

dj mindstalker

really really really my favourite project that no one has really heard of unless you were in a dark club in scandania in 90s and caught me sneaking in a dj or live pa set. Some days I sit down and make some new dj mindstalker but never really publish it. I think I’ll change that soon.

The one time I did press some white labels for this EP takes me back to a time walking down the european high streets with the sounds of Faithless enticing you to buy fabulous overpriced footwear…

these are a few of my favourite things

you must be this OMG KICK ASS YUSS FUCK YEAH to pass…

If you don’t know Aesthetische or Mari Kattman for the love of pete sort that out! As usual, clinical and fucking deadly. I will argue robustly this is sonically more aggressive than any of the laptop fashion hellectro garble garble masachistic clown acts and it has angelic vocals. Come at me.
