♫ Listen: Me, Claudius – Good Diz, Bad Bird

This post was originally published on this site

Glee in discomfort. Me, Claudius has a thing, here, an exploratory itch that can only be scratched by one of those long-handled wooden implements with a curved hand-like end, but a metaphorical one, a really, really long one that goes on far too long for the average itch-sufferer. Length and satisfaction go hand in hand for Me, Claudius, whose back longs for the initial satisfying friction of object meeting skin.

Then it relieves that itch until the itch becomes a flowing stream of blood.

Hey, I’m just the messenger here! The guy who somehow rammed together the idea of an immediate and satisfactory sensation and the slow burn of a Me, Claudius joint. But let’s not pretend we’re unfamiliar with the UK loopster, not with tapes already on Dinzu Artefacts and Linear Obsessional — you’ve had plenty of time to do your homework and understand. In fact, immediacy alert, “Good Diz, Bad Bird” opens side A with the most wickedly jacked piano melody this side of an Erased Tapes release, but slammed hard on a gravel road and run over a few hundred times with a dirtbike. That the melody is still somewhat intact while it’s bombarded by the elements is a noble and triumphant result.

Warped noodles through a tape deck define the rest of the tape, “Lifestyle 1” and Lifestyle 2,” grotesque and abstract representations of what apparently passes for “lifestyle” for Me, Claudius. For me, I like a nice single-malt scotch by a fireplace while I read books or write dynamite music criticism. That’s my lifestyle. It’s a warm, gentle existence. For Me, Claudius, “lifestyle” involves meticulously etching stone with metal and regurgitating the sound until it’s also covered with cave dirt, then doused with hand sanitizer and churned in a washing machine. Or maybe that’s what she uses the back-scratcher for! The itchy ol’ rock face.

And yet, the two of us aren’t so different, in the end.

Good Diz, Bad Bird is a beauty of a tape from our UK pals Bezirk — it “comes with handmade artwork, printed on a 1960s Farley 24a proofing press on Takeo Yomushi paper by Me, Claudius herself.” Stream it!

Solomun reupholsters Keinemusik’s ‘You Are Safe’ into sinister peak time detonator

Solomun’s reupholstered Keinemusik  Rampa, Adam Port, &ME’s — “You Are Safe,” once the brooding synth-led intro of the eponymous album, into a compelling peak time detonator.

Imbuing electro elements into its sinister prelude, Solomon still allows the soundscape to slowly unfold, just with deeper dance elements ensuring its listeners that all paths lead to the dance floor.

With a solid 4/4 foundation at its core, Solomun meets the track’s staccato percussion maze and synths with simultaneous escalation. “You Are Safe” ultimately explodes into an almighty floor shaker, and will undoubtedly see out its life across floors worldwide soon.

Damian Lazarus is bringing his otherworldly Get Lost party to Miami Music Week for its 13th annual installment March 24-25.

Despite the ever-fluctuating tides of Miami’s readily available scene, the off-kilter ethos of Get Lost will continue to be a mainstay, proven in its continual cultivation of intimate after-hours vibes.

With more than 50 artists playing in just over 24 hours, Damian Lazarus’ MMW alternative is supplying the underground with the artistry they need. Seth Troxler’s playing a 5 a.m. opening set. Detroit legend Carl Craig and the high priestess of South African house music, Black Coffee, will get behind the decks. The festival features an appearance from the wizard himself, and an extended closing set from the trio Wizardry: DJ Three, Damian Lazarus, and DJ Tennis.

Legends like Doc Martin, Kenny Glasgow, Soul Clap, Kerri Chandler, Fur Coat, Kölsch, and more will all perform live at the Lost Mythical cities-themed event.

More information and tickets are available here.

Meet the counselors of Dirtybird Campout East: Rampa

This post was originally published on this site

Rampa

Dirtybird Campout has grown past a simple gathering and into a phenomenon that has gained national interest. Claude VonStroke and his flock have created a truly unforgettable experience that harkens back to childhood memories while also offering an immersive transformational festival experience — complete with an endless supply of rage-worthy music. 2018 marks a milestone year, in which the Campout ventures eastward for its first time to enjoy a sunny jaunt in Florida amidst the winter months. Ahead of its East Coast debut, we assembled a batch of artist “counselors” from the roster and grilled them on camping memories, their careers, and more.

The name “Rampa” bespeaks a caliber of musical production and an attention to detail that is continually evinced by the releases stamped with the name. Since 2009, the German producer has grown to become a marker of musical mastery and dexterity in the electronic sector, with his music appearing on a diverse body of imprints, including Cocoon, Innervisions, Kompakt, 2020 Vision, and Crosstown Rebels, among others.

A constituent of the three-part Keinemusik collective which defines itself as a “little DIY cosmos,” Rampa is joined by Adam Port and &ME as they work to spread the musical message of their brand & label of the same name. Rampa’s individual productions, but also as a stimulating collaborative platform for the trio. One particularly memorable release of theirs is their first album, Are You Safe, which came out in November of 2017.

Rampa’s prowess as a producer is not only powerful, but potently so — hence his inclusion on the lineup for Dirtybird Campout East’s inaugural iteration. His recent increased focus on the intricacies of music production can be expected to seamlessly translate into a live performance at St. Cloud that will be nothing short of complex, and nothing less than stunning in its construction.

What has been your proudest career accomplishment thus far?
To be able to cancel all shows, stay home, chill and create music that is relevant to me.

Where do you find the most inspiration to create new music?
By being offline and chill…the less I have on my ‘to do’ list, the easier the ideas come. Being bored for me is a positive thing. I wish the whole world could shut the f*ck up a few days per year. Imagine how dope that would be. After that, we party hard again of course 😉

What essential camping items can you not live without?
That’s a nice question…the answer is maybe not so thrilling: a knife, a lighter, and a drum.

How would you survive if you were stranded in the woods for a week?
Easily. I grew up on a farm in the blackforrest. I’d build a hut, hunt, and would enjoy one week of quiet chill time.

What are you looking forward to most about Dirtybird Campout East?
To listen to nice music on a nice sound system in nature.

What is your craziest camping memory?
Not super crazy but the only memory…I went camping only one time in my life. Second day I met this girl, she stayed in a hotel nearby…lucky me, rest of the trip I slept in the hotel too

 If you could recommend three artists to catch from the lineup, who would you pick?
Uff that question is a little mean…I see &ME and Adam [Port] all the time anyways, so it would be DJ Tennis, Green Velvet, and Seth [Troxler] I think
