WiseUp! 01/2016 Lena Willikens & Review 2015

This is the annual end of the year review and a preview to CTM festival 2016. There were loads of great releases in 2015! For example Lena Willikens – who released her EP Phantom Delia in early 2015, and we did an interview April 2015 @ Rokolectiv Festival. For the past five years, she has been in charge of long and sweaty Friday night parties at Düsseldorf’s Salon Des Amateurs. She is also a dedicated member of the Cómeme records tribe. As a DJ, radio broadcaster (check out her show Sentimental Flashback), producer, and Theremin player, Lena is never committed to one style, all is welcome as long as it is twisted the in a one-of-a-kind way. When she spins records she likes to let herself go in the name of dance and free thought. »»»»

Felix Kubin, one half of the Hamburg based futuristic noise band Klangkrieg, lives and works against the rest of the world. His activities comprise Sci-Fi Pop/Noise/animation films/radio plays/experimental broadcasting. As the messenger of exploding lungs he started his label “Gagarin Records” in 1998 and rules the “syndicate of counter-noise” since 1999. His experiences both in electroacoustic music and strange electronic pop (that he followed already in the early 80ies) induced him to launch a vinyl record label for all kinds of Dada-Electronics on the edge of pop and experimental music. »»»»

Prolls mit Klasse

(Deutsch) WiseUp folgt diesmal der Figur des Prolls. Anlässlich des 50jährigen Jubiläums der Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (CCCS) stellte Moritz Ege seine Dissertation “Ein Proll mit Klasse. Mode, Popkultur und soziale Ungleichheiten unter jungen Berliner Männern in Berlin” an der Universität Innsbruck vor. Das CCCS war ein kleines, aber bis heute in der Kulturwissenschaft einflussreiches Institut an der University of Birmingham, die in den 70er und 80er Jahren grundlegende interdisziplinäre Forschungen zu Subkultur und Popkultur vorlegten. Diese untersuchten kulturelle Erscheinungen unter Berücksichtigung von sozialstrukturellen Merkmalen wie class, race, gender. Moritz Ege befasst sich in seinem Vortrag und seiner ethnografischen Studie mit der Aktualität der CCCS Studien. Berliner Prolls mit Klasse hören auch deutschsprachigen HipHop, der als illustrativer Soundtrack, den Vortrag begleitet. Eine Einladung zur Suche nach den vielfältigen Facetten des Prolls und dem Proll in uns. »»»»

Was Marcelle so auszeichnet, ist neben ihrer unfassbaren Kenntnis von Musik (Sie besitzt eine umfangreiche persönliche Sammlung von circa 15.000 Schallplatten und arbeitet live nur mit Vinyl), die Einzigartigkeit ihres Mixes.

State of Emergence – DepecheMode Mix-2011 #1

This is a mix of Depeche Mode songs with lots of remixes, live versions and edits recorded from vinyl. Depeche Mode fits well on the cassette format with side a/b dramaturgy.
It was part of the radiobroadcast “30 years of Depeche Mode” I made around christmas 2011 because their first release was in 1981. It featured both of the mixes. Eventhough you can feel the 80s or 90s strongly in their albums, to me their music is pretty ahead of time and I am glad they managed to keep their music sounding like the present tense. »»»»

Now, Kaotic Souls is broken down to subgroups, all of which are in the Audiopharmacy family. Audiopharmacy Prescriptions then became the San Francisco indi label which supports consciousness and community. »»»»

1,000 years old, AWOL One is still shaking the grounds of hip hop. Bursting on the scene from Planet Zero, California, Awolrus’s style has taken him through the murky waters of hip hop. In 1988, AWOL took off on his b-boy journeys influenced by KDAY and breakdance music. Soon after, vinyl became no stranger and the art of DJing lived in his knuckles. AWOL found himself DJing in underground parties and eventually moved up to night clubs. Then in 1995, he opened for Roger and ZAPP on the “Lowrider Magazine” American Tour for Thump Records. »»»»

He was involved in important group actions in Berlin and activities like Jazzstylecorner or the Outsides exhibition.

His article describes the cessation as an existential part of writing. »»»»

Writing The Memory Of The City – Daniel Tagno

(Deutsch) „Die Erkenntnis der Notwendigkeit von Reanimation“ in „Writing The Memory Of The City“ zeigt die Entwicklung und Dualität des Bombers COST und dem Künstler Daniel Tagno. Wenn der wilde Writer COST in Aktion ist, kommt Daniel Tagnos rastloser Geist zur Ruhe. Dennoch entsteht auch Angst, wenn der Writer auf den eher weichen Künstler trifft. Oft haben beide unvereinbar scheinende Wünsche. Deshalb schreibt Tagno einen Liebesbrief an seinen Alter Ego COST. Diese persönliche Perspektive auf einen inneren Konflikt, kann auch stellvertretend für viele Künstler in dem Buch verstanden werden. Weil Tagno eine Brücke vom klassischen Train-Writing zum Kunstbetrieb schlägt, ist er der erste vorgestellte Künstler in dem Buch von Markus Mai und Thomas Wiczak, das Ende letzten Jahres beim Dokument Förlag erschien. »»»»

WiseUp 04/2007 DefJux-Label, El-P

Text 2014: Listening to El-P at a Bar last night made me search for the Def-Jux-Special. I was a bit shocked that it is so long ago. Back in 2007 @ FSK freeradio Hamburg the show was sunday night and open-end so we took our time: it was a 4 hour special, joining forces with Nandor of NoTVRaps. So this is a good half of that night shift featuring the El-P interview and defjux discography. In 10/2014 El-P has a new record out: run the jewels 2 with Killer Mike. »»»»

Space Achievement – 1999 – By Jukebox Utopia

Wow this is really oldschool! Made around 1999. I just started doing radio and bttb radioshow was making a radio-mix-contest. Listeners should send in mixes about the theme “the moon”. I was working back then with a little akai-sampler and the mix is stuffed with samples. It features songs related to the moon (directly or in my mind) and artists like Björk, Faithless, Manu Chau or German Artists like Doppelkopf. This was one of the few serious concept mix efforts I ever made. Its perfect for a chill down, a sleepless night, warshipping the power of the moon or some 90s nostalgia. »»»»
