Paradis. Love. Ulrich Siedl

Paradis : Love (Amour) part one of a trilogy directed by Austrian Director Ulrich Siedl, in cooperation with various austrian and german actors and film-makers. The film is a dark and insidious expose of european and african interaction via tourism. Sex based tourism. The film is stark, bare and direct in terms of delivery and narration : the actors seeming absolutely normal, everyday life and people. Replete of drama and the usual trappings of shock and awe, the movie clearly stands apart, and perhaps is really a brutal piece of honesty on film. Especially in an age of ludicrous fantasy and macabre unreality. Operating at various levels of an existing and disturbing social order, the film exposes and reveals the crude and inhuman nature of tourism and racism. Where the dire-disparate ways of the third world collides with the hard currency coated white trash of the first world. The internalized and deep rooted frustrations of a well-fed, well kept, austrian society impinges and willfully exploits the conditions of vicious poverty, malice and decrepitude of men in Kenya. A betwixt and sordid play of vagrant jobless black-love-studs and racist, love-less, middle class white european women. They fool each other, fuck, cheat, pretend and yet eventually remain totally segregated and sad. Brilliant, sad and in parts utterly cruel, the movie is perhaps too hard on the average mind as a reflection of human interaction and desires. All bound into one very sordid holiday story, titled Love. Ulrich Seidl is perhaps one of the most vital film makers of Europe as of now. This is beyond Dogma. 




Soul Space

Soul Space is the electronic sound avatar of Vishnu PS : from Bangalore now residing in New Delhi. His new LP is like the perfect traveler's music - Clearly inspired by the surge of UK Garage, his sound is a peculier combination of Dub-Techno meets Four-Tet meets Royksopp meets oodles of synthesized ambience and melancholic harmony. The LP contains many tunes which reflect the producer's desires to formulate his musical ideas riding on solid four-on-the-floor virtues.  Subtle elements of minimal trance to stark elements of german techno are as obvious as is the expert sequencing of crafted bells and synthetic ambience on tracks like Morning At Roots and C'est La Vie. Our favorite track, on repeat, is titled You - A straight reckoner for all those who share The-love-of-Garage. Or is that Post-Garage now ? The song invokes a peculiar cosmic grit  trapped with a series of soft beats and a repeating haunting melody. As a producer, Soul-Space is sensitive to not ape the trends or stage himself as a studio jock. The tune Night, Night on the LP is a fry cry from the current mindless hiatus of EDM, Dubstep, Brainfeeder, Trap n Crap !  The sound of the album conjures after-hour feelings .. the emptiness of the dance floor that is possessed by dense harmonic tunes, embedded noise particles and precision beats. Soul Space is definitely a new player in the burgeoning electronic music scene of India, and we sure want to hear more ( production and 'more' live ) from Vishnu PS. Having Kollektiv Turmstrasse (Connaisseur Recordings), Komon (AUS Music) and Mark Farina (Om Records) to take notice of Soul Space, has been a clear indicator to this artist's future sound and direction .. or is that open to speculation ?! 


















IJA & Vitamin Sex



Ija presents Vitamin Sex. The debut album of a new band is always loaded with as much hope and as much ambiguity. Pilled as Vitamin Sex - This music is not tailor-made EDM nor is it hankering for hapless facebook likes. Ija is a macabre combination in terms of musicality and backgrounds. Ashhar Farooqui a.k.a Toymob ( voice of Teddy Boy Kill ) meets Sahil Mehendiratta a.k.a Inspector Maal ( drummer, percussionist and sampler mangler ) meets Punit a.k.a Jantu ( guitarist and riffmonger ) makes a radical and vulnerable combo. 

Vitamin Sex is one ride composed of dramatic voices, big drums, squashed samples, tripped out guitars and oodles of smacked up effects and synth riffs. Some call this Electro Pop, some called it Hipster Hop. F**K that ! Vitamin Sex is a potboiler of experiences, moods, drugs, trips, tales and off course sex n love. V.S. is bound within a dark circle of sounds, hankering low-long bass-lines,  a bit of fashionable glitch and further stoked in multi-vocal layers. The production of the album reflects in the sound, which is fresh and copious. What strikes as forceful is the deliberate and trendy use of Bollywood samples mashed along rap, spoken word, chants and delirious melodies ! This Rap is not humble, Smoking Big-time bizarre Noji Nagas within Druggy Sagas. The album points to one obvious screaming expectation. For the love of Live ! Keep your radar on and make sure the Maal is $afe ~ Ija is here.

"Guitarist Punit Jantu tells us, “VitaAmin Sex originally came about because of the story of Molly and Nunni, characters that were built around certain people that we knew due to certain coincidences. So, this story sort of intertwined with the whole songwriting process and the music, which are pretty risque by themselves.”

Frame/Frame Pariah

Frame/Frame's new EP is titled Pariah (A person who is hated and rejected by other people. Says our official word software - Miriam Webster ). That aside, the first song Pariah ushers the listener immediately into a landscape of an imaginary video game. Steadily cascading on dark envelopes, the listener is  jostling irate snare drum hits and keeping the beat to a steady rising trance. Minimal as we like our synths and bass-line. The song is an essential after hours chiller as one might say 'go home with a hundred bizarre thoughts'. Nice Mastering. Track two, Rivals seems a fight between Gus Gus and Crystal Castles ! on the same stage at the same time. Square bass-line turn into a cheeky trance pillage. Brave. Vagabond and Wasted is knocking on the doors of Berlin clubs. Bring on the fat claps and throbbing bass-lines. Oh wait !  christmas bells and santa synths come riding along. This is the most interesting and bizarre track on the EP ! Why ? Imagine Santa Clause, Afrika Bambata and Kid Rock on the same song- the combinations and genre meltdown ! The album cover harks yet another dystopian doomsday message. Yet Why Stop the Party ? The EP settles down with Papillon. Time to sleep to a waltz, as all ends well with the bell ... Sweet synths and 3/4 dreams ... Frame/Frame's voracious rate of writing songs and albums is clear, as is the artist's rising production skills, sound appeal and composition.

Audio Diary of a Mad Scientist

Presenting Jefre Cantu-Ledesma’s and his latest album of ambient electronic music titled A Year With Thirteen Moons. 

The ambient and aural spaces within the music, consist of warm and harsh currents coinciding with blips, squeaks, cracks and shards of noise and long reverberated leftover dub particles. Evidently as with a transcendental ideology towards sound and music, the artist becomes very unique and an isolated persona. Far from the seething masses of EDM and the mindless technological trends that rule the current hiatus inside electronic music cultures, A Year With Thirteen Moons reckons the listener to imagine, think and almost loose themselves into a space, which exists inside the music itself. The sound takes on a cinematic effect almost ...

Created within a span of three-months, and in a clearly hedonistic state of mind, yet working within a relatively stripped-down kit: laptop, modular synthesizer, guitar and an array of pedals, and three different tape machines. " The work that resulted was less like songwriting than sculpture or painting " as the  bandcamp.com review reads.

Atom™

Late on my radar : The album is a true masterpiece blending minimal sound design, psychotic synth manipulation and creepy poetry. Erstwhile known as Senor Coconut and now as Atom™, the  album Liedgut, released in 2009 is radically different and refreshing, far from the subsidized status of German Techno. Released under the banner of Raster Noton [ Record Label and Design Agency ] the album is clearly futuristic and neo-spiritual in idea, construction and mix. Liedgut is brutally minimal and compulsively analog. The album is made for personal and close listening in after after hours ... : http://boomkat.com/cds/159016-atom-tm-liedgut

Hard Boiled Wonderland

Emerging artist and electronic music producer, Frame/Frame ( Nikhil Kaul ) has been making waves in the Indian electronica scene for just under three years. Frame/Frame's sound is a contrasting amalgamation of downtempo vibes, glitchy beats, wide bass-lines and ambient melodic stints riding along his penchant effected voice and lyrics. The new mini-EP titled Hard Boiled Wonderland is a reflection of Nikhil's synth-heavy pop tendencies, yet keeping the sound and production rather personal (dark) and minutely crafted. It's amazing how Frame/Frame has gradually managed to cull his sound out of a bedroom studio with minimal equipment and resources. Imaginative !
The first song on the EP features a collaborative cameo with MadBoy (Imaad Shah) of MadBoy Mink fame, on guitar and voice. The second song titled End Of The World harks at a dystopia of sorts, a system failure and the inevitable end. The mini-EP surely leaves the listener wanting for more Frame/Frame in the future ...

Bone Ringing

Jamblu's new EP titled Bone Ringing is a three song mini-odyssey loaded with macabre soundscapes and an undeniable, reticent, downward feeling. Cinematic in parts, atonal in places, the sound is forever drifting. Karthik Pillai, a.k.a Jamblu has a way with unearthly sounds from the nether world and melodies which creep out of a subconscious point of view. Even more challenging compared to his debut EP Depth Training. The first tune, City Of Heaven hovers as an after-thought with an embedded voice sample from the previous century. Mass Heat, fabricates a cavernous atmosphere crafted upon erie voices, oscillating vibrations  and long percussive drills. Clearly, space is a matter of taste for Jamblu. The final tune on Bone Ringing, titled Transcend brings contrasting musical desires to confront each other - Geared upon broken beats, articulated noise and dark refrains and some disturbed synthesizers, Jamblu is the ambassador of post-dystopia music. Lyrical without lyrics. Dense without overproduction. Devious with(out) intent ? Listen.
