[Fr] Dupliquer un vinyle chez soi ? C’est possible !

dupliquer copier un vinyle

Et oui un nouveau coup vient d’être porté à l’industrie du disque déjà fragilisée par le téléchargement illégal massif, les copies pirates vendues dans les arrières boutiques chinoises, et la soupe que nous sert de façon immuable les corporations du music-business. Après la copie de la K7 à K7, du cd au cd, du mp3 au mp3, voici venir le coup de grâce : la copie du vinyle à vinyle. Hein ? Bon ok trêve de dramatisation excessive, voici plutôt la recette (si vous êtes un poil bricoleur) pour dupliquer vous-même vos master-pieces préférés. Tout est possible on vous dit. Continue reading

[Fr] Peace Division – Coast 2 Coast (nrk)

nrk, peace division

Bien que le personnage à lunettes sur la pochette ait tenté de se grimmer en Puff Daddy (peut-être pour attirer un peu plus l’attention ?) ne nous fions pas aux apparences, car le registre abordé ici est d’un autre niveau, bien moins clinquant et un peu plus intéressant : celui de la deep-house moderne et sombre mixée par le duo Peace Division pour le compte du label londonien NRK.

[En] Severence radio mix

severance

Severence is one of the newcomers of the new ambiant/deep/dub techno scene. For the moment he has released only one track on the Quantec’s imprint Shoreless, but we are already looking for more music from this 30 year old spanish guy. Sometimes he plays records for some radios in Spain and on Internet. His last mix is about 100 minutes of good waves featuring great artists and labels like Styrax, Echospace, Bvdub, Quantec, Echocord, Sven Weisemann, Atheus, Kit Clayton, Havantepe… Continue reading
