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. »»»»

WiseUp! 10/2012 DJ Marcelle

Man nennt sie „Female John Peel“ und anlässlich ihrer 2. Mix LP habe ich mich mit DJ Marcelle zum Interview getroffen. Freiheit. Das ist die Essenz von Marcelle’s DJ-Stil. Die niederländische Plattenakrobatin beschränkt sich nicht auf eine bestimmte Musikrichtung. 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. Sie ist vielseitig und überraschend. Die Zuhörer werden nicht nur unterhalten, sondern sind Teil eines Abenteuers. »»»»

Teao of Audiopharmacy – Wise up with Audiopharmacy 2009-10-18

For those who don’t know, the group started back in ’94. Teao and Zygoat made music under the name II Sense (two sense). In ’97, they combined with Defiance and Laxman to form Kaotic Souls, one of the only experimental and conscious hip hop acts in San Jose, Ca. The group eventually grew to the supa huge size of about 30 members… all spirtually connected artists. Finally in 2002, they created the name Audiopharmacy Prescriptions. 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. »»»»

awol one – Geschichten und Legenden um Rap mit Awol One 2009-09-18

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. »»»»

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. »»»»
