Frontal Frustration / 86 , 76 and 64 Knights
« on: September 12, 2015, 03:42:53 PM »
as there has not been much of a regular post here lately, i thought i'd share these "interesting" remixes. it all started when some artist on soundcloud did 86 knights, a 1986 high energy dance style remix of 96 knights (think miamia vice style)
this inspired me then to to do 76 knights, a 70s krautrock / progrock style remix of 96 knights, and later 64 knights, in a c64 / spectrum chiptune style.
the tracks:

Frontal Frustration / PCP - Rare And Unreleased Projcts
« on: May 05, 2014, 08:14:28 PM »
a look at rare, obscure, exotic projects of the PCP crew.

Jack Lucifer Full Length Album

the second Kotzaak Compilation, From the Deepest Depths, features 3 tracks by jack lucifer (and 1 hidden track),
that were supposed to be of a full length jack lucifer album release, that is announced to be upcoming.
they are in the later style picked up by jack lucifer, not the early kotzaak style, but his blend of death metal
and electronic equipment. the name of the album was supposed to be "contaminated black planet".
in a later interview he said, this album was finished, but never released. he doesn't want to release it so far,
unless he has re-recorded all the tracks again.

See Ya In 2017

See Ya in 2017 was a different version of what was later the Frankfurt Trax 3 Album. it exists only as a
white label testpressing. it has almost the same tracklisting as the frankfurt trax album - but it has three
extra tracks, which are not released elswhere. one is a techno track, one in white breaks style, and one in 303
nation style (probably done by them?).

Unreleased 1993 Mover Demotape

a tape marc acardipane made in 1993. not much about this is known. the tracks are in mover style, but could also
be tracks supposed to be put our under other monikers of acardipane (nasty django, ace the space?).

The Praxis Tape

a rumor from the internet, that the "track 2" put out on the praxis CD compilation paraphysical cybertronics was part of a tape with much more tracks (thus the name "track 2") by the mover.

The Live Double CD

in the early years, the pcp liveact often didn't play pre-existing tracks, but did special live tracks, that were often improvised live. almost nothing of this surfaced later. there seems to be a split between normal tracks, that were put out on vinyl and CD, and the pcp live stuff, which was just for the liveacts. in an interview acardipane talks about a planned PCP live double CD with this material, but it never surfaced.

The Mescalinum United Ambient Album

in the famous alien underground interview, marc acardipane mentions having finished a mecalinum united album of twisted dark ambient tracks. it never came to light. could it be that later ambient releases (1987 metamorphosis, jupiter pulse) were originally part of this album?

Tomorrowland Recordings

this, and i think other labels, were mentioned in an old pcp feature in a magazine. these labels were planned, but never came to existance. one can only wonder what sound wouldve been put out on them.

the PCP DVD

around 2004, marc acardipane announced on the planet core forum, that he had rediscovered masters of plenty of unreleased tracks he done under monikers such as alien christ, ace the space. he said he wants to put them out on a big DVD, complete with unreleased video and live footage.
again, this never came to light.
the only thing that surfaced was the PCP mayday 1993 live video, which was planned to be released on this DVD.

(if anyone has further info, i will be happy to add it to the text)

Frontal Frustration / PCP - When The Phuture Was Born
« on: February 11, 2014, 10:22:58 PM »
"Phuture" is a concept central to PCP. it is referenced in tracks, record titles, project names, on backcover info and so on. and indeed, while PCP is known for great techno or hardcore, even more so it is futuristic music - or rather, phuturistic music.
the tracks by PCP evoke many a great imaginery before one's eye - the comet swarm rising. the purple moon. the blue sun. of suns and moons.
it was something that always stood out for me with PCP - even before i went fully in love with the label. the sound of PCP always sounded so much futuristic, modern, scifi, alien, outer space. 'music for huge-space arenas', as cold rush records said? rather music for huge space-arenas!
the cyborg unknown, the phuture project, the planet phuture, the dance ecstasy from 3001. PCP is so much riddled with alien, future, exotic references, tricks and hints.
i rarely had this "phuture" feel with any other artists - early Juan Atkins or Somatic Responses can maybe compare, and it is something verily unique with PCP, which makes it special, and i guess is also hugely for the large and dedicated fanbase PCP has now.
PCP is a lot like the best of science fiction movies, novels, art, comics turned music - but not only that, but also intensified, concentrated, enlarged. it feels as if you would really travel around space when you listen to PCP. a darkened room, or even better, a party situation, augments this experience even more, of course.
also noteworthy is that PCP supplies various types of Phuture. from the near-future suburban battles of the cyborgs unknown, to the interstellar travel to the coloured moons, to the esoteric aliens of the outer systems, to the computerised mind of the 303 nation technoville.

it is home to mystery what enabled marc and the others to create this extraordinary phuture vibe. a love for scifi movies? comics? substances? an attitude? regardless of this, they definately suceeded with their task

when enjoying regular scifi stuff, there is always a kind of detachment, that is not there with PCP. it brings the phuture home.

this focus on its own "scifi" earned PCP a special place in the history of electronic music - or rather, put it on a level of its own - maybe a planet of its own.

note:
i'm writing a series of texts on PCP, to showcase the label and give it more exposure (especially about some overlooked aspects).
the text can be found so far http://experimentalelectronicsandothermusic.blogspot.com/
maybe i will move it to a different place in the future

Music / EEAOM 2013 Year Charts (Techno / Hardcore and other styles)
« on: December 23, 2013, 01:50:54 AM »
EEAOM 2013 Year Charts (Techno / Hardcore and other styles)

the 2013 charts of artists to watch out for, who presented interesting and creative output.

in the genres:

Dark Techno
Acid / Acidcore
Doomcore
Dark Ambient
Experimental

compiled by the EEAOM blog.

http://experimentalelectronicsandothermusic.blogspot.com/

choice of 5 interesting artists per genre; in no particular order.

it was tough to decide on these, so, counteracting the "charts" concept a tiny bit, i decided, instead of trying to do a 100% "best of 2013", to do a "5 artists worth checking out 2013".

of course, the focus here is - mostly - on newcomers, or "lesser" known (but still great) artists, so don't be surprised to not find more of the well-known and famous artists amongst the charts.
