Fri. 4th of March - Living Room Show

After 'A Place Called Jamaica', the musical journey continues..

This time, two intimate concerts by The Craving Deer & Ancient Sickness

FREE - Friday 4th of March @ Antz' crib

Please bring some to eat & drink.. Free donation for the artists..

The Craving Deer create a very fragile breed of folk music, kindly drawing the listener into an intimist twilight zone where the only beacons are passion, silence, and the thin line between life and death.

Ancient Sickness is Ancient Delay & Dj SickSickSick's joint project. Starting from improvisation with the three generations of Buddha-machines then slowly adding different layers of carefully chosen frequencies to the mix. They create a powerful psychedelic collage of slightly dark, ambient soundscapes. Accompanied by their own visuals, one not to miss!


LIMITED CAPACITY! drop me a message if you want to reserve

Paying it forward.. Dj Ripley


Ever since I unleashed the 'Turk And A Killer'-m!x, about two weeks ago, a lot of people have tuned in, and turned on the discussion about crediting artists, copyright laws, etc.. Amongst them amazing Dj Ripley, check her blog!

Paying it forward: (c) sorts it out badly

A Turk And A Killer On Soundcloud

take a guess who's that man in de middle ;)

Good day to y’all!

The eclectic dj wizard Lowdjo from Brussels is at it again with a fresh mix, inspired by the Turkish ‘Anadolu’ psychedelic rock sound from the 70′s. That and, as the title suggests, triggered by the sampling notions of Gonjasufi’s 2010 record on Warp.

Listen up, you can still download it if you’re quick!

A Turk And A Killer by Lowdjo

The uploading of the mix wasn’t without a struggle either. Here’s what Lowdjo has to say about it;

A Turk And A Killer .. some words ..

Last summer I listened to a lot of psychedelic music from all over the world. One of the ‘scenes’ I really got into was the Turkish ‘Anadolu’-rock scene.

While listening to a lot of these fuzzy tracks I was really surprised when I discovered that quite some tracks released by The Gaslamp Killer & Gonjasufi are so close to the original Turkish songs… they’re just slightly altered, edited and have a voice-over by Kutmah.

I was even more surprised when I tried to upload this recording onto Soundcloud and it got blocked for “copyright infringement”. I got a message that said my mixtape was recognised as “The Gaslamp Killer – Kobwebs” and belonged to the rightsholder Milan Records.

After submitting my counter notice and waiting for a week, I contacted Soundcloud again and explained them that the whole idea of this mixtape is to shake up the discussion about copyright, sampling, etc… I even send them links to videos from both tracks so they could compare.

Today, it’s been a month…. and still no word. So I taught I’ll try fooling the new ‘copyright-robot’ at Soundcloud by just putting an excerpt from Cassetteboy’s Parker Tapes at the start of the mix, upload this and see what happens. And yes……. this time no problem with getting my favorite Turks online!

Enjoy the m!x and spread da word ;-)

Lowdjo

Apparently Soundcloud is now also hunting down fans/djs who are mixing up James Blake ‘Limit To Your Love’…. There’s something fishy about Soundcloud making such decisions and blocking the mashups & remixes of people who have all made the website such a big in the last few years.

The eclectic mashup femme DJ Ripley wrote a really interesting post about it on her blog with the title; walling off another garden. Also WayneandWax did a good post about internet content copyright earlier in december; platform politricks.

You had some of your mixes, remixes of mashes rejected by Soundcloud? Speak up and spread the word!

Want to know where all the Gonjasufi samples came from?
