Next up is a 12″ under the name LX72 called “State Of Resilience”. Three raw and diverse house tunes that i’ve produced last August and September. Release: 12.12.2019
The EP kicks off with ‘Lunatic Dolphin’, a hypnotic and vibrant number keeping things basic and aiming straight for the dance floor. The title track, ‘State of Resilience’, is a deep and percussive affair. Dubby piano stabs merge with hazy chants that weave in and out before the tune takes a mesmerizing twist that echoes the distinctive sound of the ‘Motor City‘. The final track, ‘Duster‘, is a bouncy joyride with an uplifting quality creating magic every time the strings drop in. Dusty MPC beatdown business at its best.

Found this short but sweet footage of Ini Kamoze performing “Wings With Me” live on TV in 1984.
I’m a big fan of his first two albums, both produced by the impeccable Sly & Robbie and mixed by Paul “Groucho” Smykle.

The Gagosians – Run For My Honey is a retrofuturistic 4-minute Rock’N’Roll Drama written by Suzana Rozkosny (Vocals), A.C. Kupper (Guitar), Kay-Zee (Synths). The sound is machine driven and dark; surrounded by narcotic synths and deformed blues guitars. Lexx and Kejeblos on remix duties on the flipside. Have mercy!
Out: January 2019 on Phantom Island

Inspiring. Go see it if you have a chance.
One of the most important artists of our era, Ryuichi Sakamoto has had a prolific career spanning over four decades. From techno-pop stardom to Oscar-winning film composer, the evolution of his music has coincided with his life journeys. Following Fukushima, Sakamoto became an iconic figure in Japan’s social movement against nuclear power. As Sakamoto returns to music following a cancer diagnosis, his haunting awareness of life crises leads to a resounding new masterpiece. RYUICHI SAKAMOTO: CODA is an intimate portrait of both the artist and the man.

“When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.

Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging. The arrangements are designed to bring nature into living spaces while at the same time representing the cosmic order. In a project inspired by this art form, musicians and DJs bring together their favorite records. The series was available as a limited poster with a download code.

“You have two options. You can stay the same and protect the formula that gave you your initial success. They’re going to crucify you for the staying the same. If you change, they’re going to crucify you for changing. But staying the same is boring. And change is interesting. So of the two options, I’d rather be crucified for changing.”
