wow we just had one of the best dj sets at our club in the karlsplatz – Everybody’s Darling this weekend
Spacelex – he of Dissident records infamy now runs his own label Frisbee
as a dj he works hi nrg , italo , belgian new beat and classic electronic disco plus at the end he went into a deep chugging set much to my delight but also shame at not having enough tracks to join in … always overpack ! , it was a pleasure to dj with him back to back my only wishes are that I had a better record collection and that club U had a better mixer !! one day soon !
check out this dark brooding mother
go buy some tracks from his edit based label some real gems in there decks seem to have copies …
his dj sets can be found here and there are many … http://soundcloud.com/spacelex/sets/mixes
he runs a night at same heads the hot new club in berlin you should be there they have people such as ivan smagghe my fave label for artwork and bizarreness the sex tags mania guys and clark (warp ) to name a few
Vercetti Technicolor’s Bay Of Blood EP rises from salt water graves upon lost voodoo cursed Islands. ‘Tropical Terror Suite I’ is a perfect introduction, vast landscapes of post apocalyptic beauty, and yet somehow the dead birds still sing. Jungle Witch Hunt’s frantic percussion mirrors your own heartbeat as you journey further into the wilderness, machete slipping from a nervous sweat. Tema Di Kerstin is it’s own lost temple, it’s own monalith… Inferno sees you face to face with a long dead beast fighting for your life. The final scene finds ‘Inferno’ remixed through the terrifying lens of Not Not Fun’s Xander Harris accentuating the cosmic disco elements into a storming dancefloor heavyweight, after the void… there is only space…
hailing from Greece, Gianni (mr vercetti ) embodies the character of Maurice Conchis from The Magus ( the conjurer of illusions ) projecting nightmareish erotic visions through the music casting a hypnotic spell upon the body and mind
check out this Legowelt remix for proof of his dark synth connectivity verifiable STATUS … IF YOU ARE NOT AWARE OF LEGOWELT you are not down with the disco darkness my friend
however the original is the killer
using horrific imagery and channeling the spirit of early films of Dario Argento and other VHS horror legends Vercetti Technicolour inhabits a darker corner of the disco … tension disco if you will ..like his label mate Antoni Maiovvi on Giallo Disco they are about the creeping dread , you can hear that they are massive italo fans continuing the fine work performed by Den Haan and Heartbreak in keeping Italo in the publikums mind – albeit the aforementioned groups took a more hammy approach as you can see here from this performance by Heartbreak of their big track We’re Back at The Excellent bethnal Greens Working Mens Club
Den haan – ham it up in fine euro disco style with this tale of a burly seaman on shore leave…
what these fine examples all show is the deep love for the european style the strong chords and an interest in keeping that dancefloor creepy
sniffing on that rag ….
creeper got mad and angry eyes one look can paralyze…. BUY on wax now
… a great update of the skatt bros classic walk the night .. with a remix from sean johnston as hardway bros who as you may know is behind a love from outer space which along with promoters world unknown and horse meat disco three of the best parties in london hands down
haules baules is logan fisher who has bravely entered the pressing plant and is pressing up wax and screenprinting and doing it all himself ´something of a mystery man he resides in bucharest and is a one man disco army involved in the importation of people like BLACK DEVIL DISCO CLUB , THEO PARISH, SHIT ROBOT and LONE
good work indeed , great re work of a classic and its always good to see the hotly debated CRUISING getting some attention this lesser known al pacino flick still causes raging debates …and probably some MASSDEBATES too look out ! its a patchy film and I dont think its totally what william friedkin intended but as a piece of brilliant 80s trash its a classic
dont forget to wear the right bandana and see you down the eagle !

the lovely Carina Elter ( boys beach / go ask delphi and totally wired records artiste ) found this photostory in an old issue of Bravo magazine – a kind of Smash Hits magazine this acid house photolove story was the obvious choice for next flyer
so tell a friend and come down ,true love awaits on our floor …
Now to our guest djs
we heard this mix from Sebastian Schlachter and decided we must pursue him to come play our party – he ticked all the boxes , deep knowledge of his music , good humored and up for banging the party and with no crappy moody djs publicity shots – you can hear him on the radio on FM4 generally shining a light along with other specialist shows in the evening such as Davidecks and Slack Hippy on the better stuff out there in the electronic welt.
He’s a co founder of the ever excellent Vienna Wildstyle records and with releases on the Cheap imprint and ever present radio presenter & Podcaster. An important part of the scene here in Vienna hear his amazing classic electro mix that won us over
we are also introducing a new young dj –
a student living here in vienna she comes from magic Sofia Bulgaria after impressing us with her knowledge of 80s street soul and euro dance we asked her to make a mix and come play our party
this mix is more mellow than her dancefloor set and demonstrates her love for stuff like Mount Kimbie and Daphni – on the night it will be more old skool stuff so come early and give full support
so keep the acid house dream alive and JUST SAY NO to boring clubbing – no door policy or lame sponsership deals no cheeky door tax either for some overpaid traktor / ableton / robot /producer playing demo tracks he made on a plane watching Madagascar 3
get dancing on tables ,whooping and hollering and do the running man all of which are freely encouraged
its free and we only promote love and happiness to all in a ploysexual environment so come with an open mind please and respect the dancers around you for they are your brothers and sisters and one day we will all be free
Donau Festival rolls round again to give Austria another unhealthy dose of outsider art and music in the bucolic ancient roman settlement of Krems – for nearing 10 years this festival has brought legends to host and to play with their various bands , create projects and collaborations in various venues all over the kleine stadt including Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth , John Cale (Velvet Underground ) , Genesis P Orridge ( Throbbing Gristle Pyschic TV) , Jason Pierce ( Spiritualized , Space Man 3 ) and Kenneth Anger to name a few.
In a deeply conservative town there are more shocking visual and sonic attacks to be found and this year promises all out war on the eyeballs and ears – here’s my faves (I’m a bit biased as I’ve worked for them and helped bring Ariel Pink , Gold Panda and this Year Hype Willams through Campari Safari Booking )
top of the list Is Omar Souleyman
cant wait to do the shoulder dance
Next is the deeply disturbing ambient death march music of Raime
A techno Legend who arguably gave birth to the curse of minimal Robert Hood ( albeit his stuff is the real shit )
horror sci fi dystopians Gatekeeper shock with their new material concerning haywire abusive automatons and more – hopefully will play the old horror italo stuff too
psychedelic disco funk jam band and hugely influential for the disco constant evolution !!!
play an epic set
and last but not least my pet project ..Ive been wanting to put them on for years and the time is right they insist on a huge bass system able to trouble your innards and enough smoke and lazers to take you the OTHER SIDE
this is them in slow haunting dub …
ooh and also BEAK ( Geoff Barrow from Portishead and Bristol top man , Death Grips and Girls Against Boys with David Yow ( Jesus Lizard ) and loads more
tickets get yer tickets!
