Changes

It has been a bit quiet here lately. A lot has happened though… Bart decided it was time to focus more on his own music instead of music by others… and I guess he’s right… I mean, he has co-founded a label more than two years ago, but hasn’t released his own album yet… This  Continue Reading »

FRET

Review in FRET (www.npi.nl): Slo-fi is een van de namen waaronder Roel Meelkop werkzaam is. Hij is al sinds het midden van de jaren tachtig actief in de muziek met THU20, Kapotte Muziek en Goem. Als je het over Nederlandse experimentele elektronica hebt, duikt zijn naam vanzelfsprekend een keer op. En hij doet het nog  Continue Reading »

Review in Gonzo Circus (www.gonzocircus.com): Roel Meelkop kennen we van zijn experimenten met THU20 en Mailcop, maar zijn neiging tot het produceren van acid techno was ons minder bekend. Op deze cdr gaat hij tienmaal repetitief loos met zeer dansvloergerichte minimale softwaretechno. Zijn andere interesses (onder andere veldopnames) blijven latent present. De strakke sound en  Continue Reading »

Review in Vital Weekly (www.vitalweekly.net): Roel Meelkop is perhaps foremost known as… Roel Meelkop. But perhaps you know his work with Goem or Kapotte Muziek? Well, of course you do. But little known is his work as Slo-fi (let alone his latest incarnation Zèbra). His first LP, on his own co-owned Audio.NL label, was a  Continue Reading »

Vital Weekly (www.vitalweekly.net): With ‘The Speechless’ Maga offers his third release for Esc.Rec. Originally Marc Fien, the man behind Maga, was a drummer for various bands playing all sorts of music. But solo he plays around with electronics, acid and techno to be more precise. He does a really fine job at that actually. Raw  Continue Reading »

VITAL WEEKLY (www.vitalweekly.net): The launch of esc.rec. brought us some years ago a most odd double compilation CDR called ‘J’ee-haw! Remixed’ (see Vital Weekly 387), based around the call ‘j’ee-haw!’, now they return with something likewise odd. Robert Witt did a performance in which the sound of knitting was fed through a bunch of plug  Continue Reading »

Cut-Up review + video item: In de kleinste cellen binnen ons universum vinden we patronen. Structuren en systemen die alle materie bijeenhouden. Bindweefsel, bladgroencellen, DNA, elektronen, ionen. Onder zeer geavanceerde en gevoelige microscopen kunnen de simpelste stoffen de meest bizarre kaleidoscopische tekeningen vertonen. Zelfs in de dingen die we niet zien, zitten de meest ingewikkelde  Continue Reading »
