beeple IV.10

known for is visual layering and killing interpretation of kill your co-workers by flying lotus, beeple is an hard, effortless, time-spending artist and 3d animator that surelly deserves much respect. beeple spends months of work on single videos, meticulously constructing his very own worlds, keeping in mind that the audio brought to him, should really be accompanied by an high standard and top notch well-executed visuals.

short description: watch music literally come to life in this super-happy, turbo- fun world that shows exactly how every song is ever written – one note at a time.

uk goths 1984

invitation was made by wire to the ear blog.
– spend two hours in the UK. the year is 1984 and your friends all wear black.

this film has been rescued from an old mildewed-and-damaged vhs cassette tape so the quality in the first few minutes is pretty poor, but it settles down fine just in time for the action inside the club itself. the original video was commissioned by the couple who ran the club (annie and pete swallow) and was distributed amongst family, friends and people who frequented it. i can’t remember if there was a charge for it at the time [thanks to the commenter who told us it was £2], probably was. this is the complete full length video as originally presented.

yay goodies * moodymann


detroit, techno, deep house master and legend, kenny dixon jr aka moodymann released an 8 track ep entitled picture this. the mahogani music‘s owner releases this at scion a/v, for free. it’s very, very, very unusual to see, or ear moodymann releasing digital tracks and on top of that giving them away as a marketing move. anyways i’m sure that at some point a physical release will be pressed. for now we can all enjoy this memorable goodie.

discos com um final feliz na picaria

o convite surge na troca de emails e em jeito de desafio; – achas que tens discos e quejandos para vender?

a ideia de um mercado de troca e venda de discos de vinil (ou melhor, mercado de troca e venda de vinil, cassetes, teclados e outra parafernália musical) não é nova , mas tendo em conta que é organizada e promovida pela matéria-prima e hang_the_dj, o caso muda de figura.

 

é verdade que a era digital chegou para ficar. e sim, é possivel comprar a nossa musica online na forma digital. em muitos casos até adquiri-la de forma gratuita (guilty as charged).

mas o verdadeiro entusiasta – estou a falar daquele que vive e respira música, adivinha temas de vinil pré-amados em caixas de plástico, com um aroma característico e velho das décadas de naftalina. lixos e tesouros da comunidade dos discos. lps de capas deformadas em caixotes organizados por género, ilhas em pilhas de titulos não triados, até que a dado momento e com um pouco de sorte se encontra a verdadeira pérola.

quanto à máteria: – estão todos convidados a pôr discos, cassetes, teclados e outra parafernália musical a girar de mão em mão.

a primeira edição do gira-discos é já dia 14 de abril, das 15h às 20h, na picaria, n.84, Porto.
