Sven Vath Retrospective What I Used To Play

For this uniquely personal retrospective spread over twelve vinyl discs, Sven Väth takes us back to the early days of his DJ career. On What I Used To Play we meet great pioneers of electronic music, gifted percussionists, obscure wave bands, and innovative producers of a bygone ‘new electronic’ era. Rough beats and irresistible grooves from the identification stage of house, techno, and acid remind us not just how far electronic music has evolved over the past four decades, but how great it was to dance to EBM, techno, and house for the very first time.

If there is one protagonist of the electronic music scene who has remained curious, innovative and at the very cutting edge of music for over four decades, it‘s Sven Väth. His multi-layered artist albums and Sound of the Season mix compilations have been defining the genre for over two decades, and even today, he is constantly on the lookout for the next top tune to add to the highlights of his next set. At least, that’s the case when he’s not producing them himself as an artist or remixer. "Actually, it's always been part of my DNA to think ahead," and nothing had been further from his mind than looking back at his past, but when in spring of 2020 the international DJ circuit had to be scaled down to virtually zero, the ‘restless traveler’ suddenly had time. Time to stop and reflect on "how it actually was back then, at the very beginning of my career..."

"It was a great trip and with every track, beautiful memories came flooding back".

In the London apartment, he had just moved into, Sven has set up a "little music room", where he cocooned himself for several days, "to look way back for the first time and review my musical journey through the eighties, so to speak."

The interim result was six thematically oriented playlists with a grand total of 120 tracks from ‘early 80s’ to ‘Balearic late 80s’, together with excursions into afrobeat, European new wave, and EBM sounds and a few epochal techno/house tracks from the USA in between. From these ‘Best of Sven Väth's favorites’, the project What I Used To Play crystallized. Sven remembers how the Cocoon team reacted to his proposal: "They found the idea of making a compilation out of it MEGA from the beginning and everyone said 'Sven, go for it', but then, of course, the work really started, namely, to clear the rights and to get clean sounding masters of the up to 40-year-old tracks. There was also disappointment, of course. We couldn't clear certain titles because the rights holders in the USA had fallen out with each other or simply disappeared from the scene. In short, it wasn't easy, but now I can safely say we got the most important tracks."

Finally, after two years of research, curation, design, and administrative fine-tuning, the "little retrospective" from 1981 to 1990 is available. The exquisitely packaged, and three-kilo heavy box set is not only physically impressive, WIUTP is also the definitive record of Sven Väth's musical development. On each of the twenty-four sides of vinyl, you can trace track by track, what influenced him during which phase, and how he took off as a DJ from his parents' Queen's Pub straight into the spotlight at Dorian Gray. There and at Vogue (later OMEN), Sven became the style-defining player in the DJ booth that he still is today.

Brian Eno - There Were Bells

Sunday, December 11, 2022


Passwar D is a sound project with an identity conceived as an extraterrestrial creature connected to the human imagination. This is an original way of conceptualising a musical idea that is inspired by the various human experiences, our interests as rational living beings and all the emotions we experience throughout our lives.

Passwardy connects all these possible stories with sonic arguments that exemplify his conception from outside the planet. With The Death of Synthetic Parody he shows different developments in terms of the style of the album, his lo-fi mix of MIT BLA BLT can perfectly represent the information codes that a being from another planet could use, or the second cut which is a remix of Acid Elevator, a version of syncopated rhythmic sequences and acid lines that intermingle with spatial frequencies. The third cut on the other hand is the original version of the previous track and curiously the sound treatment completely erases the brightness in its textures, giving it a degraded character. Robo Tribe (Passwardy Mellifluous Remix) is a deep and gloomy landscape and Robo Tribe (Magdalena Baczewska Piano Remix) is even more disturbing due to the involvement of the piano. WORDS BY Industrial Complexx

Passwar D participated in the last edition of Teorema, a festival organised by Diffuse Reality.

Release date: December 16th, 2022.

Jiji's Adventure - Carlos Ferreira, Yumi Iwaki


“Tenderness” is the first collaborative album between Japanese musician Yumi Iwaki and Brazilian Carlos Ferreira using unreleased sketches, improvisations, and samples, “Tenderness” is a mosaic of painted sounds that does not end in itself, inviting the listener to inhabit its center.

Porto Alegre based experimental guitarist Carlos Ferreira and Tokyo-based synthesizer hypnotist Yumi Iwaki are presenting "Tenderness" , their first ever collaborative album through Modern Obscure Music. Carlos and Yumi have created this powerful ambient odyssey at the distance. Despite some connections between Yumi's family roots with the Brazilian musical scene, both artists feel a strong attraction about their cultural differences, through Literature, films, scents, colors, and nature… Carlos feels “there are infinite cultural differences between Japan and Brazil, and this can be explained by historical and even geographical factors, but people come together through very strong elements that are able to transcend these differences. Diversity must also unite us.”. Yumi explains that when she met Carlos on Instagram, she was instantly captivated by “his quiet, deep and fantastic view of the world, the feelings we shared seemed to take shape naturally, but it was Carlos' great talent to complete the production... more

FEROTONES drops October 21st on Dopeness Galore on vinyl and digital, while on the same day San celebrates with a live show in Concerto, Amsterdam’s iconic record store, right in the middle of Amsterdam Dance Event. Dr. San Proper tunes his guitars to the sexuality and pheromones of his signature sound, with a whiff of classic synths, and a dash of live-drums. This album comes together alongside his bass guitars and electric guitar riffs, all in the spirit of dance-floor-muic. With its poetic lyrics and the organic fusion of instruments, it reflects the true sound of Proper House Music.

Passwar D - Robo Tribe (Magdalena Baczewska Remix)

Robo Tribe was written during a time when people all around the world have been fighting for their voices to be heard. In response, Passwar D dreamed up this future of man and machine, living peacefully in a symbiotic way. Human uniqueness is nurtured and amplified in this new world. Technology helps man to celebrate individualistic dynamism. It is not about good over evil or virtuosity over ignorance. It is about the acknowledgment of the multidimensionality of homo sapiens. In this future world, technology and artificial intelligence help humans break free from constraints. Artists can travel back into history, resurrecting the lost knowledge, infusing ancient crafts with modern technology, and coming up with creative ideas with roots in the past and the future. It is within this context, Robo Tribe (Magdalena Baczewska Remix) was conceived.

Skogar - Paradise City Jams


Having shone his light over the damp canals of Gothenburg for at least a decade, Paradise City Jams is the first album proper from Johannes Brander and his Skogar project, as well as his first release on Stockholm’s Studio Barnhus label.

This highly anticipated record is the crown jewel of all those strangely glimmering shards scattered via the barely existent Native Parts imprint over the last 10 years, as well as numerous live performances around town.

Though rooted in the mid-00's neo cassette underground, this debut album bares little resemblance to the hypnagogic era, the mostly guitar-driven tracks evoking a longing for something that has never actually existed, in contrast to yer standard nostalgic exercises. A Malmsteeninan approach to the riff is soaked in a peculiar strain of melancholia, accompanied by mesmerizing synths and bad-ass percussion.

As a visual artist, Brander works with returning images of feverish jungle scenes, often incorporating Vodou mysticism and tribal settings. These images are always present in the mysterious musical world of Skogar, painting pictures of a parallel universe far away from those Gothenburg canals. Well worth the wait!

Recorded in Gothenburg, Brännö and Hawaii between 2017 and 2020, mastered for vinyl by Viktor Ottosson.

Alien vibes from the Earth Radio with Passwar D, ESP 1AF1

An Almost Chronological Summary of the Sound From 2010 to 2020

The Alien Vibes From the Earth Radio Show Episode 1af1 "Unforgettable" by Passwar D is a highly artistic articulation of a 54-minutes, 12 tracks live DJ mix, offering the listeners an overview of the magnificent and aspirational soundscape of the second decade of the 21st century. 
The mix chronologically transitions through each year of the 2010s and into the first year of the new 2020 decade. 11 out of the 12 tracks were curated in reflection to the sound of the decennium with each track representing the given year based on its release date. This long winding sonic journey starts by introducing us to human sentimentality. It then leads the listeners into a spiritual chanting of the medieval, the tribal beats, and the techno arousal of the machines, aliens, and space travel. The 12th track, Passwar D's 2020 single release, Xhjduik (pronounce as "such") (Original Mix), was used in the middle point of the mix to spice up and embellish the mega-climatic escalation of tensions from Visual Capture (Luke Slater Remix) (2015) by Slam, and into the next record thereafter, from Architectural, Elliptical Storm (Original Mix)(2016). Denying the expectation of the complete machine takeover, the mix takes an unexpected turn after the climax with an extended and intertwined fusion of three tracks, Derek Plaslaiko's Praia Da Amalia (2018), Richie Hawtin's CLOSE combined (Moving Forward) (2019), and Tiga's 3 Rules (Deewee Unreleased Mix) (2020). Here, Passwar D masterfully combined acid, spoken words, and a playful electropop to imaginatively release us from the buildup tensions, ending this narrative with a sense of humor and cheekiness.
"Embracing tension, it is here to stay. Dancing with it, creating fun out of it, celebrating it and the tensions will eventually resolve."

Variations by Radio Slave


Radio Slave returns to his Rekids imprint for his first release of 2021, ‘Variations’.

Marking the first release of 2021, Matt Edwards aka Radio Slave turns in four thundering tracks loosely based around a common theme: his signature maximal minimalism mixed with classic dub techno aesthetics.
While his recent anthemic single ‘Live My Life’ displays Edwards’ knack for twisting vocal hooks into main room artillery, ‘Variations’ sees the Berlin-based producer head for room 2, showcasing Edwards ability for crafting devastatingly effective heads-y techno.

After releasing Robert Hood’s incendiary ‘Mirror Man’ LP towards the end of 2020, Rekids is showing no signs of slowing down for 2021. With this release highlighting an artist at the top of his game, ‘Variations’ adds yet another powerful and striking 12” to both the discography of one of electronic music’s most essential labels and one of its most lauded artists.

Cafe Society

Josephson created the club to showcase African American talent and to be an American version of the political cabarets he had seen in Europe earlier. As well as running the first racially integrated night club in the United States,[3] Josephson also intended the club to defy the pretensions of the rich; he chose the name to mock Clare Boothe Luce and what she referred to as "café society", the habitués of more upscale nightclubs, and that wry satirical note was carried through in murals done by Anton Refregier, Russian immigrant who is more well known for the San Francisco Rincon Annex murals. Josephson trademarked the name Café Society, a phrase coined but not trademarked by Maury Paul, a society columnist who wrote as "Cholly Knickerbocker" for the New York Journal American. He also advertised the club as "The Wrong Place for the Right People".[4] Josephson opened a second branch on 58th Street, between Lexington and Park Avenue, in 1940. After that, the original club was known as Café Society Downtown and the new club—designed for a different audience—as Café Society Uptown.

The club also prided itself on treating black and white customers equally, unlike many venues, such as the Cotton Club, that featured black performers but barred black customers except for prominent blacks in the entertainment industry. The club featured many of the greatest black musicians of the day, from a wide range of backgrounds, often presented with a strongly political bent. Billie Holiday first sang "Strange Fruit" there; at Josephson's insistence, she closed her set with this song, leaving the stage without taking any encores, so that the audience would be left to think about the meaning of the song. Lena Horne was persuaded to stop singing "When it's Sleepy Time Down South" written by Clarence MuseLeon René and Otis RenéPearl Bailey was fired for being "too much of an Uncle Tom", and Carol Channing was fired for an impersonation of Ethel Waters.[3]

Relying on the keen musical judgment of John Hammond, the club's "unofficial music director",[3] Josephson helped launch the careers of Ruth BrownLena Horne, dancer Pearl PrimusHazel ScottPete JohnsonAlbert AmmonsBig Joe Turner, and Sarah Vaughan, and popularized gospel groups such as the Dixie Hummingbirds and the Golden Gate Quartet among white audiences. Many of these acts had first been presented at Hammond's Carnegie Hall concerts, From Spirituals to Swing, in 1938 and 1939. Its defining star in the early 1940s was Josh White, who first appeared there with a gospel group, the Carolinians, then went on to head the bill as a solo performer for four years.

As part of the challenge to integrate America's segregated society, Josephson's club was the scene of numerous political events and fundraisers, often for left-wing causes, both during and after World War II. In 1947, Josephson's brother Leon Josephson was subpoenaed by the House Committee on Un-American Activities, which led to hostile comments from columnists Westbrook Pegler and Walter Winchell. Business dropped sharply as a result, and the club closed the following year.[1]

In Summer 1948, jazz pianist Calvin Jackson played with singer Mildred Bailey and dancer Avon Long.[5] On December 5, 1948, dancer Pearl Primus closed a successful return engagement before heading off for a year's research in Africa on research as a Rosenewald Fellow.[6]

Cotton Club


The Cotton Club was a New York City nightclub from 1923 to 1940. It was located on 142nd Street and Lenox Avenue (1923 to 1935), then briefly in midtown Theater District (1935-1940).[1] The club operated during the United States' era of Prohibition and Jim Crow era racial segregation. Black people could not initially patronize the Cotton Club, but the venue featured many of the most popular black entertainers of the era, including musicians Fletcher Henderson, Duke Ellington, Jimmie Lunceford, Chick Webb, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Fats Waller, Willie Bryant; vocalists Adelaide Hall,[2][3] Ethel Waters, Cab Calloway, Bessie Smith, Aida Ward, Avon Long, the Dandridge Sisters, the Will Vodery Choir, The Mills Brothers, Nina Mae McKinney, Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, and dancers such as Katherine Dunham, Bill Robinson, The Nicholas Brothers, Charles 'Honi' Coles, Leonard Reed, Stepin Fetchit, the Berry Brothers, The Four Step Brothers,  Jeni Le Gon and Earl Snakehips Tucker.

At its prime, the Cotton Club served as a hip meeting spot, with regular "Celebrity Nights" on Sundays featuring guests such as Jimmy DuranteGeorge GershwinSophie TuckerPaul RobesonAl JolsonMae WestRichard RodgersIrving BerlinEddie CantorFanny BriceLangston HughesJudy GarlandMoss Hart, and Jimmy Walker, among others.
