This Friday marks the 11th occasion that the Motorik crew have pulled on their dancing shoes to throw a techno soiree of sorts. In typical forward (and backward) thinking they have chosen to throw this shindig down at the infamous Club 77. If you were/are old enough to remember there was once a small party that rumbled away every Friday night down there called Bang Gang. And if you were actually in the right frame of mind to remember how these parties were – well then you probably weren’t present. It spawned a whole new list of genres – idiot house, K-noise, Oz-Touch, Spazno…. the list goes on. Enough of this sentimental babble though – come down this Friday (25th may 2012) and acquaint or re-acquaint yourselves with the surroundings of Club 77 and enjoy the sonic mayhem of the Motorik peoples – our peoples, your peoples, the dancing peoples. The Finger Prince will be performing a special extended (homecoming ??) set composed of 3 hours of history halting hopuse and techtonic techno tunes.
Today we are going to usher a few friends into a small room dim the lights and sing our praises to NTEIBINT. Our new Lord. We can see his name written in the skies above us , yet none of us can pronounce it. Who is he ? This Greek titan has survived the financial woes of the normal man and has evoked a constant dance match between the elbows and the knees & is the very multi-faceted guise of George Bakalakos.
An electronic storm brought him to us, and now we (whilst donned in white robes) carry him across a scarred and burning digital platform to fight all the future wars of musical mayhem and hold the mediocrity of the phoney electro pirates at bay.
‘Everyone knows a Dave’ is a small collection of songs from his personal cloud (not the sound type, the God type) pulled into a amalgamation of awesomeness. No sonic vibration is left unfelt here – from the balearic funk of ‘Morning Breeze’ to the saxomatic sexual trance of ‘Jackpot’ and the warehouse proto-rap jam ‘Never use Force’ NTEIBINT weaves an elastic web of beats and harmonies that even the craftiest fly cannot evade.
Pushing into the outer reaches of the dance floor NTEIBINT has coaxed fellow God-like creatures to release some of their computer box gold onto the original tracks. ATTAR! (of Belgium waffle descent) waves his disco wand over ‘Morning Breeze’ whilst ‘Tunnel Signs’ takes the darker route down Goblin Boulevard into the early hours of trisco-dance. Bang Gang bad-boy and bass’n’ball freakster Chris Colonna sticks on his Bumblebeez batting hat and smashes ‘Never Use Force’ out of the park into next-door’s housing commission breakdance comp. And as a lovely touch the man, the George, the Dave, our God slips in a nifty dub of ‘Never Use…’ keep to us all from straying into the wilderness sans hypno-hoppo shoes.
You can preview all the tracks below, and also download a FREE copy of ‘Jackpot’.
You’ve heard it in da club, you’ve fought your neighbours cat to it, you’ve fallen over to it, and you’ve watched Soulwax destroy the minions with their animation of the cover?? now take it out of the internet – stick it onto your iPhone, usb stick, compact disc or record it onto tape and break it off in the most indecent fashion possible. Watch your friends set themselves on fire to it, and watch your enemies weep in admiration. This is the real deal – and sleeping on it would mean that you were already 6 feet deep. It fits like a pair of rusty undies – and that excites us.
Check all the madness below, and/or head over to your favourite digital outlet and blow those penny’s you’ve been hoarding….
Here it comes – the newbie from Light Year…. not much more else to say than BAM BAM BAM.
From deep within the deepest depths of the deep dark scene that is Berlin comes Obi Blanche.
A street cred toting , phycadelic b boy whose reputation proceeds even your wildest dreams. . You know…. that guy who tends to broaden your horizons, who always bursts your proverbial bubble . He stomps on that square you live in and has you saying “thank you can we have some more?”
First up is ’72 hours’, big, then Big then a little BiGGeR, Then oh wait.. there it is! If god went to rave, he would be handing out prophylactics to the masses in hopes that the human race would have a chance of survival against this monster . Big everything! Did we mention it was pretty big?
‘One With Empty’ takes the joyride into more melodic moments even featuring background vocal harmonies from the man himself! But dont get it twisted, come 1.35 he lays everything on the line and takes your body back to the dance dungeon.
To tie you over from now until then, here is his guest mix he did for BORIS DLUGOSCH’s radio show. Listen closely you might hear some stuff off the new ep!!!
