Big news... Ghost Car is back on the road after the departure of Sakura Night this year, due to circumstances beyond control. Yes. The most raddest clan of twilight racers is back in full affect! Savage House is the new brainchild of theirs and it's freaking awesome.

The first tune 'I Am The Future' starts out with some radio-shifting noises, zapping back in time and bringing forward some classic Sakura Night and Ghost Driver tunes... and then it kicks in!

Their signature sound is still omnipresent but has somehow matured aswell, and if you loved Sakura Night, you will adore Savage House! Check it out, this one is a must have and gets our vote for come-back of the year 2009, no doubt!

We Are The Romans



Are we really? Well then close your eyes, and at least, try to imagen you are... a Roman! You know, the great Roman Empire in all it's glory ruled by mad emperors and an insanity of warzones, gold and decadence...

All this and more to introduce you to the work of Monsieur Adi, who presents us the lead track from his upcoming EP and album 'Empire' which bears the same name. The album 'Empire' is based loosely off of the rise and fall of ancient Roma, but is based in modern times. The song 'We Are The Romans' captures the prentiousness and power of Roma during the time when it was the center of the world.

It starts with chopped vocodered vocals and builds into a twisting melody of synths, harpiscord, a female choir, and a blasting brass section.

But wait, there's more! You, the reader, the remixer, the enthousiast,... You can also be part of this 'roman empire' as Monsieur Ad is doing a remix contest for it and the best remix(es) will be placed on the EP.

Download Monsieur Adi 'We Are The Romans' on zshare: http://www.zshare.net/audio/689529753cdbe74e/

Fear Of Tigers "Cossus Snufsigalonica"

TRACKLISTING:
I Can Make The Pain Disappear
Please Don't Leave
What Did I Do?
The Adventures of Pippi Longstrump
Friday Night At Geek Club
Cossus Snufsigalonica
Study Hard Drugs School
The Rich Cry Too
Sirkka
Calling Your Name

Download Here!
if that doesn't work try here

Included in his press release is an interview with Ben Tigers:

What do you want to achieve with the album?
Some peace and quiet! I hadn’t actually planned to make an album this year. My girlfriend suggested it and I foolishly decided to mention it to a few people. Of course, people started asking me about it so I had to make one really. It’s been pretty hard finding the time to work on the new tracks and I’ve now got a computer full of unfinished ideas. So it’s an opportunity to draw a line under them, get what tracks I could finish out there and start again.

What Does ‘Cossus Snufsigalonica’ mean?
It’s not a secret but it is a cryptic reference to something wonderful. I don’t want to say too much and I’ll be impressed if anyone can work it out.

What are your influences?
When I was a moody teenager, bands like The Cure and The Pixies. I was a big indie kid but I also worshiped a lot of the ambient pioneers like Autechre and the Aphex Twin. One fateful night back at a club called Vauge in Leeds, everything changed. I discovered disco, piano house and poppers and the years that followed were dominated by people like Chic, Inner Life, Jocelyn Brown et al. From my days as a DJ, UK garage but also epic trance records (which I hated at the time, but look back on with a certain fondness). I recently bought a piano so back at home you’re likely to catch me listening to Ryuichi Sakamoto, Philip Glass or Ennio Morricone. I’ve recently discovered the music of the 30s and I’m really enjoying all the classic Ivor Novello penned songs. I’m really quite nostalgic for the 30s at the moment.

What do you think of the state of music at the moment?
If you ever read a magazine like Q, the NME or even Mixmag, they’ll tell you that the naughties were a terrible decade for music but I think they’ve just getting old. An article in the Telegraph recently revealed that of Q’s best artists of the decade “men outnumber women 7 to 1, and that the ratio of white people to black is 15.5 to 1”. So if you basically look at white men with guitars, yes they’re just regurgitating the same old shit and it’s getting very boring. But in our new world of music there is some really exciting stuff going on. New genres are being invented and the scene has become truly global. The fact that a lot of this new music is ignored by the mainstream magazines and radio is merely testament to their ultimate decline.

Why don’t you have a record label?
I know people who’ve signed to big record labels and spent loads of time recording an album only to never have it released because the label’s gone bust or the person that signed them left the company or in some cases the label have just done a really bad job of marketing it.. Like most writers, my music’s my life’s work and the thought of signing it away to somebody who has a shaky business model seems like madness. Also I love the freedom of just being able to make a track and put it online. If I’d have signed to a label we’d have probably spent 1 year clearing the samples and polishing the record. Which would have probably made for something quite slick, but perhaps just a little bit boring!

What’s next for Fear of Tigers?
I’m going to release an album of my remixes next year. There are a couple of new ones and a few from the past that have never been heard before. Then the next step is to upgrade my software and start experimenting with some new ideas. I’d also like to do more collaborations and maybe even get a singer. There are a couple of things in the pipeline already that I’m quite excited about!


We'd like to thank Mr. B for releasing this insightful interview, the totally free album, and for the inspiration and love he represents!

D/A/D Interview + EP



We just discovered the wonders of youngster D/A/D and it immediately struck us to ask this dude a few more questions... This is some awesome and deep Eighties zoned-out music, complete with classic guitar shreds and layers of niceness! Playmakers, meet D/A/D and while you're at it, check out his rad videogame metal band, Dracula Mountain!




PM: What does D/A/D stand for?
Nothing. I'm a big fan of dads so this is my homage to them.

PM: Main influences of any kind?
Obviously the 1980s have so much material to gain inspiration from. There are several musical styles from the decade that find their ways into my music, these include synth-pop, new wave, synth funk, italo-disco, and most importantly in my opinion, 80s shred. But it isn't just the music of the 80s; it's the fashion, the pop culture, the technology, the attitudes of the decade that leave a strong impression on me.

PM: When did you start producing?
i've been writing music for a while but I think I wrote my first D/A/D song about a year ago.

PM: What's your favorite years in the eighties, and why?
I think late 80s are my favorites, and I'm biased with 1989 because I was born in that one. I'm also a huge fan of the early 90s so I love the years in the late 80s that sort of blend in with the 90s. The evolution of pop culture during these years is pretty fun to analyze, and admire!

PM: How do you compose what gear are you using?
Because I'm making most of this music in my dorm, I have very limited resources. I use Logic Pro and the majority of the sounds you hear on the EP are logic synth samples which I've tweaked. If i'm not using MIDI, i'll be using my JX3P (which I don't have in the dorm room). As for guitars, I'm using a strat and an epiphone sheraton with a teenie little vox practice amp. Ideally, i would like to have some junos, yamahas, and rolands, up in here, but that's going to take some more saving on my part.
As for actual writing, I usually write my songs in parts and then figure out ways to put them together. I feel like with dance music, producers get too caught up in repeating and looping, which is totally fine and absolutely works for the dance genre. I'm constantly looking for ways to keep the song moving, however, which I think separates me from the genre a bit. I consider D/A/D dance music that is meant to be performed live, not DJed. I would be surprised if someone played my stuff in a DJ set actually, but hey if it works go for it!

PM: What's your ideal environment as D/A/D?
Top down, shades on, cruisin....just cruisin.

PM: Future plans, releases, ... ?
I'm going to take a little break on the writing front, but I'm hoping to be playing live a lot more. I have my first show in Chicago tomorrow and I played back home in LA several times over the summer. If the album gets enough circulation, I'd love to do a mini tour no doubt. I'd also love to add some visuals to my set. I'm experimenting with visuals a bit tomorrow for the show and I think it's gonna come out real nicely.

Transformer Di Roboter



Besides being a great DJ and graphic designer, our friend The Metatron from Austria hosts a regular club night in Salzburg called (just like his mixtapes) Skitzo Disko, a party celebration zone he's been maintaining for a few years now.

We got our hands on a exclusive edit from their upcoming headliner on November 14th, the amazing Transformer Di Roboter, who have been around for a while making orignal tunes but also are known for playing occasional covers and dressing up like all stars. A very promising headliner for SD for sure, especially when they give us a special edit to one of their tracks!

So, catch this awesome edit by none other then Zingone, who gave their original song "Ultra Maxximiser" some more swing for full dancefloor explosion to it's maxximising potential!

ABC Order



Highly recomended are some new EPs by the ABC Order. For example Patterns Of Creation, a deep and dreamy yet realistic downtempo project consisting of Christopher Kenobii and Richard Sloan from the Canyon Group.



Always one with nature, the ABC Order seems to be striving towards naturalist envirements as their main inspiration and undeniably reflects that in their sound. Going hand in hand with the awesome designs by the Design Library, forming a great escape into a more peaceful musical landscape, beautifully arranged, yet holding it down with a simple twist making nothing unnessarily complicated.

Dethklok Dethalbum II = kick ass



Dethklok, the fictional death metal band from the Adult Swim cartoon series Metalocalypse, is back with their second album of mayhem, following up their Dethalbum from 2007.

Naturally, Dethklok has a new video and it simply rules!

This is the openings track of the new album:

BLOODLINES

DETHKLOK- DETHALBUM II NOW AVAILABLE!!!! | MySpace Music Videos

Demo Scene: SPACEBALLS


been investigating in the "demo scene" for quite some time now, this song totally rocks my socks off. It's trippy-chippy dance character makes it unable to sit still and is uplifting as fuck! Holy shiiiit! I'm trippin'... SPACEBALLS - 1992 styles!



Here's what Wikipedia has to say about the demoscene:

The demoscene is a computer art subculture that specializes in producing demos, which are non-interactive audio-visual presentations that run in real-time on a computer. The main goal of a demo is to show off programming, artistic, and musical skills. The demoscene first appeared during the 8-bit era on computers such as the Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC, and came to prominence during the rise of the 16/32-bit home computers (the Amiga and the Atari ST). In the early years, demos had a strong connection with software cracking. When a cracked program was started, the cracker or his team would take credit with a graphical introduction called a "crack intro" (shortened cracktro). Later, the making of intros and standalone demos evolved into a new subculture independent of the software (piracy) scene.

Last but not least is a total night rider. A remix Discoballistic has done for the Flashmen from NY/Chicago, from their single "As The Night Rolls On". This track takes it awfully easy breezy and kinda explodes into some killer guitarisc roadrage!

He's got Spinna for a face!?!



On our recent visit to the lovely city of Portland, we ran into some local street-beat culture down Alberta street. Basicly every thursday there is a street fair of people showcasing, selling, hustling, cookin, drinkin,... all in good spirits!

So, upon walking down Alberta we ran into a set of Spinnaface, a 'masked' dj/entity entaining the block week in and out. He had the whole block dancin and celebrating while performing some amazing vocoder electro-house while wearing a 'spinna' for a face!

Check out "On The Floor" from his album "Feel The Shine"


and here's Spinnaface throwin it down, big rim styles!

30 years of Gundam with AWK



After his 2008 release of Japan Covers, Andrew W.K. is back with yet another brand new Japanese release! This time it's an entire album of Gundam Covers. Needles to say it's a brilliant remake and shows, yet again, the great marriage between the AWK sound and his interpretations of Japanese culture.

This release marks the celebration of 30 years of Gundam and is a great way of reviving those original anime cartoons and it's soundtrack. This album is making the songs even more powerful, translating them to English and rocking out like the very best!

You can order the album through paypal, straight in JAPAN as it's only been released there. But this is the internet, the medium, so go grab it right HERE

Magnum 38's Tribute to Grace Jones



Out Soon on Tigerbass is one hell of a slammer by Magnum 38, (one of Musick/Shitkatapult's finest producers.) delivers the goods with this inspired tribute to the living legend Grace Jones.

These tracks are neither typical “remixes” nor conventional cover versions in any sense, instead these tracks take excerpts and motifs of Grace Jones songs as an inspiration for something completely new, produced from scratch, but true to the spirit of Grace Jones' work. The three driving club tracks about Love and Pain "Slave", "Devil", and "Suffer" will get your body moving while the three abstract and jazzy plunderphonic interludes ("Sequel 1, 2, 3") give you a chance to recover.

Expect a sound that manages to blend the likes of Jackson and his computer band, Prefuse 73, Para One, and Akufen with Magnum’s trademark fuzzy bass sounds and banging electro beats.

Ten Ragas On A Disco Beat



Released in 1982, this roland heavy album by Charanjit Singh's SYNTHESIZING features '10 ragas to a disco beat', complete with slammin' 303 acid lines, 808 beats and of course, crazy indian styled melodies played live on analogue synths and shit.

It would be all too easy to regard this as a gimmick of an album, if it weren't for the fact the music is actually really fucken awesome.

The music is the perfect combination of being a. ahead of it's time and b. impossible to find, which makes it the perfect candidate for a real nice healthy reissue. It totally deserves it.

Do check it out, it sounds absolutely unique and ahead of it's time, giving you one hell of a trippin freestyle ride!

24 Bit Error Collection by Si Begg



The musical genius that is Si Begg has done it again!

This E.P. Is free. Yes that's right, free. (You can buy the limited edition "hand-made in Hackney" box set, but that's not compulsory) All tracks are yours to download and distribute as you see fit. You can copy them, burn them on a CD, blog them, host them yourself, give them to your mum, whatever you want. Music in the public domain. Or put another way: Make. Upload. Share. Inspire. Crisps.

Major labels and the bodies that represent them, such as the BPI in the UK and the RIAA in the USA would have us believe that sharing music is destroying music and the musicians that create it. We contend that the truth is, this cartel of major record companies, distributors and publishers have been systematically fucking musicians and the people that love and buy music for about 50 years. Creating, amongst other things, huge profits for shareholders, a rigorous, brutally industrialised method of music production, Hannah Montana and an inherently average, uninspiring, mainstream music scene. This traditional industry model is so close to death that we dare not entertain it here. Instead we leave it up to you to help determine how far this E.P. travels.

Multipac



Multipac from London is setting the pace for some awesome dreamscapes of pure retro-fantastic 80s electro.

Sounds like these songs were made in the Miami heat, on the first floor of a flat by the beach, at twilight, with the windows open and a breeze strolling in...

Their sound is dark yet sweet and dances somewhere between 80s Stallone and Palm Highway Chase, which is, ofcourse, a good thing!

A bunch of them are for free download on their MySpace.
Playmaker has selected a few cuts for your download entertainment!

Multipac - The Seduction
Multipac - The Last Dance
Multipac - LA Night Hawk
Multipac - Big City Lights
Multipac - High Speed

Find even more Multipac songs here.

Later Days w/Kenobii



Kenobii just released his first album for free download. His themes have him investigating the natural elements in their purest form, always accompanied with great imagery and atmospheric zones... on a slow, laid-back bed of roses.

My first impression is that his sound has matured alot, althou this album represents fresh and youngster themes that reach back from memories to the innocence of childhood dreams.

In a way this music sounds alot like Boards Of Canada but on a less polished, pretentious level. My favourite track must be Lookout Mountain. An oldstanding tune, giving you the illusion you are in fact sitting on your Look-Out Mountain cherishing life's greatests moments... Also Northern Fang is totally sweet but goes a bit darker and feels like you're right inside Jack London's story 'Call Of The Wild'.

Download this album as your perfect Sunday afternoon soundtrack.
