On repeat (the constant neverending kind)

28 Jun

I stumbled across this track a few months back on decks.de
Just recently found it online and totally had to share it.

The original track is by Leix & Hitch titled xxx coming from their EP Low Cutz out on Novo music. This is a dub mix by Spanish Uner. Slow and a bit lazy for starters and then adding the track a more raw and industrial feel which I absolutely totally and completely adore.

H.O.L.Y. crap this is good.

I’ve been over the drop at 4:06 so many times my ears bleed. Which seems like a fair price to pay.
Enjoy!

And here’s the whole Low Cutz EP for you to listen to.
I’m smitten with all 5 tracks, but still have a favored nick on Uner’s version.
Yei! (Seems like weekend already!)

Anyone with another favourite than Uner?

Why mindless doodling is a good thing

5 Apr

I was working somewhat late last night and just minutes away from brain meltdown I pushed aside the laptop and began some random doodling …

And then all of a sudden … This little fellow appeared!

Along came his friends, legs were altered and wham bam …

Online Easter Greeting!

I wish I had kick-ass evidence like this to show my teachers when I was a kid … they really weren’t believers of the “doodling in class can be good” movement.

Wishing all of you a Happy Easter and some great days of from work.
And if you’re not the easter celebrating kind of guy/gal – then have a great weekend!

Turning grey Tuesdays into champagne covered Fridays.

14 Feb

This is Rodriguez Jr. – Bittersweet – in a Sebastian Radlmeier Remix, and it totally made my day.
Hope it’ll do it for you too.

Quoting Mobilee records: “After the huge success of Rodriguez Jr.‘s debut album “Bittersweet” we have two follow up remixes from techno man of the hour Christian Smith and Paso’s Sebastian Radlmeier aka Sebrok”.

I’m glad you did!

Here’s the second remix. Rodriguez Jr. – Bagpipe Woman – in a Christian Smith Remix.
Still oh so totally right up my alley. Yei!

Enjoy!

Magic Music Monday!

21 Nov

Yei!
For some reason my Mondays are the best for discovering new music. Probably because all my favourite musicians works their buts of during the weekend …

For instance Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs just released this pretty goddamn awesome track called “Dream On” and it’s up for grasps for absolutely free right here

THANK YOU TEED! Yei!

I’m thrilled about this. You too ?

The Karaoke-tree plays on!

9 Nov

When I first started working on the idea of the Karaoke-tree I hoped that it would be an installation that people would play with.

Something that the festival-goers would enjoy with their friends, take pictures and share with even more friends. Something to make people smile and help spread the smile.

During the festival I saw that it worked just as I had hoped, and that people gladly used it and interacted as I thought, but somehow it still surprises me, that it actually DID work! (Silly artistic insecure-ness, I guess).

AND now, a friend of mine from Norway just sent me this picture. She found it in one of her friends photo stream, and it shows this girl totally rockin’ both guitar and mic.

I love it. Thanks for sharing Ellisiv.

We’re you at the Trailerpark festival this year and saw the guitars?
If you have any pictures I’d love to see them.

Thanks!

Pictures of the Karaoke-tree ™

1 Sep


So … The StreetHeart/Trailerpark/karaoke-tree extravaganza worked like an absolute charm! Loved working with my wooden guitars and had a ton of fun watching people use them.
Here’s some pictures for you to see, from initial sketches to the final Karaoke-tree.

Enjoy! (I know, I did! :)

The Karaoke-tree ™

28 Jul

Busy busy busy! (and totally doing nothing + holidaying to).

These days I’m working on an installation at this years Trailerpark festival in Copenhagen.

Curated by Streetheart a lot of different street artists join forces with Trailerpark booked artists to make the festival an even more fun place to be.

I wanted to make something that people could interact with and something FUN! – so I’ve been working on my karaoke-tree the last couple of weeks. Compliments of my big brother, the carpenter, I’ve got some totally cool guitars and killer-ass microphones.


So the last days I’ve been painting, drying, painting, drying and then taping things up and painting some more. And it’s been a total slice of heaven! Here’s some pictures from the preparation/painting extravaganza.








I’ve been a little nervous about this, because you just never know if people react to your things the way you intended. But when the karaoke-tree was done, late last night, it just felt totally right and people started playing with the installation just as I had hoped! It was to dark for proper pictures in use, so they’ll tick in later this week.


Yai!

The festival’s opening today (with a lot of great music I might add) so I’m really excited to see how people will respond to the Karaoke-tree. (Which is not really a ™, it just looked kinda cool. Right?:)

In the meantime … somewhere, a little less further than, near by

20 Jun

Updates from both Distortion and the Start! festival are in the making (… or, in the head being though of, anyways) But UNTILL then … just thought you should know that the forthcoming SBTRKT album is up for free streaming right here on the hype machine Yai!!

Don’t quite know who SBTRKT is? Then you might recognize this one from the Step In Shadows EP, released in 2010.

I totally love this. And the nice video including a “hat’s off” to Hayao Miyazaki and his Kaonashi mask/ no face mask from the ever so lovely Spirited Away. (Which you imediately have to see if you haven’t already). (Really!)

Anyways! SBTRKT full length album is out next week. And as the new songs are making their way into my ears, I’m thinking it’s gonna be just great as I thought. How lucky are we??
