It has been a quiet week socially for the TBC crew however it has not been quiet at TBC HQ. As you can see from the extensive playlist above we have been busy listening to new release albums, EP’s, radio shows, podcasts as well as digging out some old gems and classics. We may well have terrorised the neighbours over the last 7 days with some hefty techno, electro, house and, somewhat bizarrely, some 80’s post-punk.
We were excited to receive some new CD’s in the post including DJ Hell’s new compilation Kern Vol.2 on Tresor, enjoyed digging out some recent releases via Tiefschwarz (a TBC favourite act) on the new Renaissance Mix Collection and tuning into the BBC for a raft of impressive radio shows from Radio One and Six.
The picks this week:
-Kern Vol.2 mixed by Dj Hell (2013) – We were impressed to see one of the legends of Electronic music DJ Hell has released a new compilation via Tresor. Having seen Helmut during our exploits at Sonar in Barcelona in June we hoped that the CD would relive some of the entertainment we experience while dancing our asses off at Almogavers 86. Oh boy does it, it is a great compilation that showcases some classics such as Quad 1 by Code 6 (which is featured on another of our playlist Nu Groove 25 West 38th from 1991) as well as some storming techno that we would expect to hear in the vault at Tresor in Berlin. This is a true classic and one we would advise you all to look into.
-Picnik Electronik June 24th 2013 Liveset by Tiga (2013) – Tiga never fails to entertain, whether its quirky electro pop, crazy techno, leftfield rave or alternative electronic classics. This mix from the Canadian festival Picnik Electronik from June is superb. 2 hours of non-stop party music that left us dancing about TBC HQ like lunatics. It is available via Soundcloud (https://soundcloud.com/tiga/tiga-piknic-electronik-june) and it would be wise to follow the link and enjoy. It will remain on our favourites list for a while.
-Still Vor Talent 100 – Oliver Koletzki (2013) – Mr Koletzki continues to release a high calibre of music via his Stil Vor talent label. This new compilation is an easy access, progressive and even trancey at times, collection of the best his label has to offer in a recent 100th release anniversary special. We are still getting into the 22 tracks that we have for our enjoyment and these can be enjoyed while chilling out or partying it up in the sunshine.
-Enthusiast -Siriusmo (2013) – Siriusmo has been a busy bee over the last few years with what seems like a never ending discography of tracks, remixes, EP’s and LP’s. The diversity of his production is impressive, from quirky electro pop, to shuddering ghetto techno and on to bassy techno nonsense. This new LP has been assisted by the Modeselektor team and 50 Weapons to create a great release that has received critical acclaim to date. It is hard to explain the Siriusmo sound so the best advice we could give at TBC is to track down Enthusiast and his previous releases (Pearls and Embarrassments is also recommended) as you will not be disappointed.
-BBC Radio 6 Mix 2nd August 2013 – Miss Kittin (2013) – Our Sunday was graced with this superb BBC 6 Mix from Miss Kittin (it was difficult to choose one of the BBC radioshows this week as each was gratefully received) which is in the format of a 1 hour radioshow where Miss Kittin presents her influences from Joy Division, Autechre and Dopplereffekt as well as her selection of alternative electronica from her native France for our enjoyment. This is broken up by an additional 1 hour club mix which is up to the normal high standard that we expect from Miss Kittin. Great techno, house and electro. Failure to listen to this one while its on the BBC Iplayer is a crime – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0072pz7
-Tsugi Sampler 59 – Brodinski pres. Bromance Los Angeles (2013)* – The star of the show this week at TBC HQ was Brodinski’s showcase of his Bromance sound released via Podcast on the brilliant Tsugi website. This sampler shows off the eclectic taste of Brodinski and his ability to fuse and combine a variety of music genres to create a mix that leaves you bopping away and yearning for another listen. Each track is superb however our highlights were the “techno’ chanting on Maelstroms Seele, the storming techno of DJ Hyperactive’s Music Box and the groovy Bicep track Stripper. This mix simply stole the show for us and we hope that you can locate a copy to enjoy as much as we did.
We hope that you have enjoyed another snapshot into our music collection this week and you can enjoy some of this collection for yourself.
