One more album exclusively for everywhere progsters? No. Subsignal offer an album for anyone who wants to spend 1 hour of uplifting music.
The postponement of The Sisters of Mercy concert in October resulted in a strange situation: Within 24 hours I watched in the same venue the much expected concerts of two popular bands in Greece. Despite their significant musical differences, the fact that The Sisters of Mercy belong in the original Post-Punk generation in contrast to Editors who are Post-Punk Revivalists, led to some inevitable comparisons. Here are the results ...
The case of ION is neither new - nor coincidental. With a career starting in the 1980s, ION or Giannis Papaioannou not only gives meaning to what “underground” should mean but strongly emphasizes it so that that both the concept and himself are finally transparent and impressive. With his occasionally different or overlapping competencies - journalist, musician, producer, and amazing dj - ION never stands still: he is in constant discovery of new corners in the urban environment that he lives and loves, gaining new audiences that will accompany him to his otherworldly and transcendental musical travels.
Every time I come across some unknown but interesting music on the Internet, I can’t help but wondering how small the range of my musical taste would be without it...
North of England, 1968: The Mods have been defeated. Progressive and Hard Rock sounds are now popular. And yet... many working-class teenagers seek in good outfits, Soul music and amphetamines an identity that will make them "distinct". Without any particular ideological position and by actually adopting foreign cultural elements (Italian fashion, black music) they created a subculture that lasted until the mid 70s, when Punk and Disco changed everything.
The sound of silk: a musical get together that was thousands of years late
Can the seventh album of a band be as good as their first?
All the way from Aegean sea & Sappho’s island we introduce Aithale.
"Music has always brought me through, even in times when I've had nothing. Music has given me everything and I feel I have to give everything back. I don't know what I'd do without it, it's in my blood and bones, the only constant throughout the whole of my life (one of his notable quotations)”
Night out! My appetite is set for a beautiful spring evening, accompanied by electronic melodies… The so called “electronic scene” of the city has disappointed me. I thought to myself that I would like to listen to something nice from the past so I sent an email to Stephan Bodzin. I asked him if he had time for an interview. I’d like to hear what someone, who offered a different tune to the electronic scene, has to say about all that, and perhaps give me some hope that the underground club scene of Greece will re-emerge.
My skype interview with Mr Trentemøller is set for 12:00pm. After consulting ten people, I am now almost sure about the time difference between Greece and Denmark, I've gone through my questions a hundred times, I have placed tape-recorders all over my desk just in case the skype recorder breaks down, today of all days (wouldn't be impossible with my luck…), and I'm now listening to his music to get into the right mood. Oh yes, among everything else, I must not forget to ask him, on behalf of my friend,Thodoris, about the story of 'Miss you'. I cross my self and behold...
Dusty Kid… the producer who mixes classical music with psychedelia and dark bass. From 2006 till today, he offers to his fans electronic sounds that could easily satisfy both those true believers of “old school acid” as well as our present day minimal worshippers.
The first interview of Artcore magazine: The German electronic/progressive house music producer, Lars Brodherr, aka DJ Larse … We are pleased to have him answer some of our questions…
My finger is stuck on the repeat button. So is my mind. For two years I have been waiting for this bloody album to be released. Now, I'm finally vindicated.
