Outer Space (John Elliot) - Outer Space II

Outer Space (John Elliot) - Outer Space II (Blast First Petite) Emeralds' John Elliott surfaces on Blast First Petite with his second Outer Space album of 2012, following the recent Akashic Record (Events: 1986-1990) on his own Spectrum Spools label. Working with Andrew Vere, Philip Whiteside, Drew McDowall, Adam Miller and Jeff Hatfield, using primarily Mellotron-400 and modular synthesis, Outer Space II apparently marks the severance of the project's preoccupations with death and anxiety, and an attempt to explore a more open, breathable sound and mood. The short 'I' and 'II' pieces are certainly airy ambient in the vein of, say, Eno and Lanois' Apollo soundtracks, but there's nothing particularly calming or meditative about '3322', its jagged rhythm beds summoning Suicide and, at a push, even the industrial techno of mid-90s Downwards. 'Vanishing Act' is an extended exploration of cosmic pads and arpeggios which, like the Spectrum Spools LP, has a strong flavour of Carl Craig and Tangerine Dream to it, while the 24:42 'Liquid Systems Functions' occupies an even more rarified astral plain of mournful drones and pinballing synth noise. via boomkat

JAHILIYYA FIELDS - UNICURSAL HEXAGRAM


JAHILIYYA FIELDS - UNICURSAL HEXAGRAM L.I.E.S. (Long Island Electrical Systems) – LIES011 Comentários: «very strong double LP of beautifully executed synth explorations.. it's been given a wonderful mastering job too.. real deal stuff! TIP! Moving further into territories of experimental electronics comes debut album from Brooklyn artist, Jahiliyya Fields. This double lp evokes emotions of equal pain, passion, beauty and disgust as it delves into areas of the psyche many are afraid to come in contact with. Read between the lines, close your eyes and listen. Not unlike new age music of the past meeting the harsh textures of the early industrial pioneers, this music serves as another narrative to our quickly deteriorating Western societal structure. Outsider music for those of us pushed to the side and living on the fringe. Pressed loud on 4 sides for maximum aural damage!» via rushhour

Staggering mix by the magic hands of the Lisbon-based (and one half of A.M.O.R.), Violet.
About the mix: This mix mostly includes the music i like to either hear or play at clubs, but i think it's also suitable to listen on the go or at home, as most of it is not that hyper. I meant to do something both emotional and fun - and i have to say didn't include much of my new music, thought this time i'd clear my head/ears by simply playing stuff i love :)
I've just released my debut EP "Collective Data" released July 2 on Wicked Bass Records(«Fine proto-House/modern disco debut from Violet. Fusing elements of old skool Italo and Chicago House with a stripped down and Latinized groove» incl. two amazing remixes by Photonz and Cardopusher) and luckily things have been pretty hectic ever since - can't complain - so i'm working with a few deadlines for different collaborations while finishing tracks i started throughout this year to hopefully put some more music out in the near future. Apart from that, i'm still doing a show on RBMA radio, where i play music by local talents. And hey, call me corny but i have to add this: BIG LOVE TO MUNDO URBANO, a platform i've respected ever since i found out about it. Our scene needs the realness you bring. Respect!

IRIS VAN HERPEN COUTURE F/W 2012


«Few fashion topics are as timely as the evolution of haute couture. With sweeping change coming to major houses and a fresh set of talents on the rise, the face of the industry’s most prestigious arena is changing at a rapid pace. As one of the most experimental and exciting talents on the scene, Iris Van Herpen brings futurism to fashion with her jaw-dropping creations, many of which defy the laws of proportion and gravity. In a season dominated by subdued refinement, Van Herpen’s cerebral touch is especially enticing; her brand of eccentric futurism gives you the kind of 1-2 visual punch that calls to mind names like McQueen, Chalayan and Galliano.» via models.com
