Dear Santa



Nouvelle obsession... Un morceau entendu il y a quelques mois dans la
Far Away Mixtape de Lovefingers et re écouté par hasard en début de semaine... Ca aurait été trop simple que Google réponde à ma requête "Starlight+Picnicing+mp3" ou "Starlight+Picnicing+rar"... Bien évidemment un lien discogs, un lien Youtube et basta cosi... Au moment de rentrer sur Discogs, je ne me fais pas non plus trop d'illusion sur l'accessibilité du 12"... et bim! un exemplaire en vente : état "G" (good), 700$... Bye!

Je ne vais pas perdre de temps à demander si quelqu'un - par hasard - n'aurait pas une copie oubliée en haut d'une étagère à léguer pour l'équivalent de 2 pints en happy hour ou attendre qu'un label se décide à le rééditer (même si ça va arriver on le sait...)... En revanche, si tu es de passage ici et qu'un jour l'internet t'a offert une version .mp3 de bonne qualité de cette petite bombe, n'hésite surtout pas à m'envoyer un message...  Je te serai éternellement reconnaissant!

Sascha Funke - Early 90s Rave Anthems

©Marco Dos Santos








Talking about Dj/producer, there is the one who are only excellent behind hardware producing electronic gems and there is others who feels more comfortable behind turntables with a records collection to share. Sascha Funke excellently gathers these two skills. Back in 2011, he electrified La dame Noir Dancing all night long with an hypnotic set. "Mango", "Ey", "Safety First", remixes for Noze, Superpitcher and more recently "Alles In Allem" are classic pieces of electronic music at its finest.

I, for one, first heard about Sascha around 2006 when I was spending a lot of time through the internet looking for new music … I remember this "catchy" cover compilation shot by Axl Jansen for the Boogybytes vol 2 (BPitch Control) mixed by Sascha Funke which brought me to Sascha's universe... where I heard 72 minutes of emotional and trippy techno.

After a bunch of excellents EP for Kompakt, BPitch and a beautiful project with his partner in crime life (Julienne Dessagne aka 'The Twins') as Saschienne, Mr Funke is back on Multi Culti with two EPs "In Relationen" & "In Reaktionen".
The first one gathers four new hypnotic tracks between haunted house and deep krautrock.

The second is the perfect "reaction" to the first one and offers another original composition : the totally psychedelic "In Reaktionen" plus remixes for Relationen by Kasper Bjorke, Autarkic and Crowdpleaser.

So now, I let you enjoy a playlist of ten "all time" rave classics selected and commentated by Sascha Funke, have a good listening...

1- Tune - "Change The Beat“

Old classic from R & S Records with the typical submarine sound you can hear in many tracks from that period.

2- DJ Edge - "Compnded"

One of my favorite labels at that time. I bought all of them. The sublabel Rabbit City Records was fantastic too.

3- Love Inc. - "R.E.S.P.E.C.T".

Mike Ink aka Wolfgang Voigt in his element on beautiful colored vinyl. Force inc. used to be the most important German label.

4- THK - "France" (Mars Mix)

I would call it trance house. I listened to that track in every club in Berlin around 1992/93.

5- Marmion - "Schöneberg" (Kid Paul Remix)

A real Berlin anthem. Kid Paul was one of the best DJs in town, unfortunately he stopped his career too early.

6- Brainstorm - "TZ9"

I played it lately in my podcast for Trax Magazine. Sounds still young and fresh to me.

7- C.Y.B. - "Now"

Something from Italy. The label UMM released many commercial tracks but sometimes you could found some good music.

8- Edge of Motion - "Set up 707"

One of the first records I bought at Hardwax. This is what acid music is for me.

9- Modular Expansions Unit 1 - "Cubes"

Another record from Belgium. It was the leading country for electronic music at that time.

10- Caustic Window - "Cordialatron"

An early alter ego of Aphex Twin. There is a breakbeat version of „Popcorn“ on the flipside.

Au revoir David


I'm not that much in the RIP thing... but another BIG one is gone... it deserves at least a post and better than words a mix from David.

Does It Feel Like Autumn?

©Charlotte Bracegirdle

"Non-planned-Mix" are my favorites... I try to alway press "REC" before playing few tracks at home to catch the moment and the unexpected ... sometimes it works for a good podcast, home recording or whatever (and sometimes not). Well something great to listen to, in my humble opinion.
It is what happened yesterday after a long day at work.. There is essentially recent tracks (which was not on purpose either). Feel free to share if you appreciate it. Cheers!

1- Rouge Mécanique - Ampedusa/Xaver
2- Oklo Gabon - City Gym (Lena Willikens Remix)
3- Sascha Funke - In Relationen
4- Auntie Flo - Mandla In Space (Mark E Remix)
5- Junto Club - Ikiryo (Smagghe & Cross Version)
6- Man Power - Hunting Swan (Jmii Remix)
7- Middle Sky Boom, Eliezer - Prism Birds
8- Red Axes - Waiting For Surprise (Waiting For Manfredas Remix)
9- Plus Instruments - Love Is Enough (Khidja Remix)
10- Save! - The Darkness (I:Cube Remix)
11- Andrew Weatherall - We Count the Stars (Unloved Remix)

Vladimir Ivkovic's lOVe tape

Vladimir Ivkovic c'est le nom qui revient très souvent depuis ces derniers mois (bien que ce dernier officie depuis mid-90s des premières rave house à Belgrade jusqu'à aujourd'hui résident au Salon des Amateurs) sur mes réseaux au détour de mixs taillés à la perfection en solo comme ici ou  avec Dj Sundae.

C'est justement par la qualité de ses mixtapes que le type s'est fait remarqué...  Sa dernière tape est sortit sur sameheads et est dispo depuis aujourd'hui sur soundcloud (free download)...

Laurence anyways

Je crois qu'on pourrait résumer la carrière de Laurence Vanay (du moins ses deux albums Galaxies 1974 et Evening Colours 1975) par Too old to be new ; too new to be classic (and too good to be forgotten).
Légère préférence pour le Evening Colours... en intégral sur Youtube :
