[En] 3 great video clips (Drexciya / Minilogue / Swayzak)

Minilogue – Hitchhikers choice

Wao… THIS is a really exciting thing. No complex FXs or a lot of money spent here. A bit of talent and some ideas are enough. There are so many drawings that you can view this clip many times, you’ll always see things you didn’t pay attention before. Endless fun which can remind the D.A.N.C.E. video clip of Justice.

[Fr] Interview : Remote (kill the dj)

Remote kill the dj

Cette semaine est (enfin) sorti le premier album du duo français Remote.

After a great groovy deep / dub (with some little dark oddities) warm-up by Roger 23, and the short concert of Richard Davis, David Brown & James Taylor finally came to the stage. So, what was going on? Just two sweet hours of laptop-live, as usually totally improvised, with some vocal tracks sung by their old friend Richard Davis (Another way back, No sad goodbyes…). Then, Roger and all the crew played nice records until 6 am. A really good night!
