SPOQ – live in
Prague 2010

Recorded at Wakata bar in Prague in November 2010, this
is SPOQ in the mix after returning from some travels. This one is super chilled
and was designed for a Saturday night bar situation, so put your feet up and
settle down for some heavy sofa surfing as we ease into tonight’s session.

Kovert –
Detroit 1990-92 DJ mix

It’s something we’ve been speaking about over the last
couple of years – a shared love of the early Underground Resistance / Hardwax
etc axis of banging Detroit proto hardcore. Kovert sampled Underground
Resistance’s X-101 on his ‘No Surrender’ track for the Praxis USA compilation
released on Deadly Systems in 2000. UR presented a militant and independent
mode of operating that was not determined by personalities and tap dancing for
the man, and shifted the content and stage of operations inhabited by Public
Enemy into the sphere of techno music, situating resistance frequencies in
local communities, outer space, inner space, the elements, and across the
planet in oft forgotten flashpoints in ‘history’. The music that was put out with
great focus and rapidity on UR by Mike Banks, Jeff Mills, Rob Hood, and others
had a big impact on a lot of producers and individuals oriented toward
resistance activities coming out of the 1980s into the nascent terra technic –
when it seemed possible to foment revolution and autonomous activity through
electronic music and free spaces. And now? On the European mainland and even as
recently as the recent urban disturbances in London and Bristol, electronic
dance music has been used as a kinetic force electrifying crowds to action…

History of Gabba – Hangars Liquides (label)

./\. This month’s history of
|gabba0hard/speed00/ultra000/|*c0re has been hijacked by Dave Pitchless,
presenting a clarification of a perspective on flashcore ./\. and now with free
misinterpretations of lingual symbolisms. [0-0] In the line of sight this month
is a celebration of hangars liquides, ./\. which an attempt at summing up could
look like …- [0-0] – … “We are actually much more interested in any
action on air molecules that widens the field of consciousness than into music
thought as an end in itself.”[0-0].\/.

Cheaper Shipping for small overseas orders!

Posted in New Additions to Mail Order with tags on May 9, 2011 by datacide

Orders up to 1kg (ca. 4 12″s) to destinations overseas/outside Europe are now considerably cheaper to ship as German Post has changed their shipping rates for air mail letters. Overseas destinations now have the same prices as European ones.
One record now just costs 3.50 (before 6.00)
2-4 records now just cost 7.00 (before 12.00)
Depending on the individual weight up to 4 CD’S can now be sent for the price of 3.50 and up to about 9 CD’s for 7.00.
The service is fast and safe, so this is great news for all customers outside of Europe!
The postage prices for larger packages remain unchanged, but in some cases it makes sense to break them up into smaller packages (e.g. an order of 12 records would cost 21 euro in 3 letters, rather than 32 in a single parcel – and would be faster too)

Cortex related releases

Posted in Praxis History with tags , , , on May 5, 2011 by datacide

After reading somewhere in a short review that Cortex were “newcomers to the scene” I compiled the currently available titles of either Alex Buess or Daniel Buess on the frontpage of the Praxis online shop.

Granted the new Praxis release is the first under the Cortex name (although the project exists since 1998), but especially Alex’ discography goes way back, his first record was released in 1981!
On the Vision label – the late 80’s precursor to Praxis – there are not only numerous releases by him, he also very much defined the sound by his work as mixer and producer of most records. Collaborations with Kevin Martin followed, including the 16-17 release on DHR. This was followed up by “Mechanophobia” (long deleted on vinyl but recently re-released digitally) on Praxis in 1999, by that time already with Daniel Buess.
Both have been extremely busy with a myriad of musical projects, including many that are not in the discogs database yet, as well as compositions and live work. I strongly recommend to seek out their work!
