live: Gibraltar Vacuum, Isolated Lines, DJs: Leo, Martin Meier, Ink! _//--//____//--//--//--//--//_____!> It's TEKKNO4LIFE again. This time, two exciting live acts and a bunch of djs are coming to town to bring back the good old *rave* to life. //--//--//_____!> The mysterious GIBRALTAR VACUUM has only appeared once or twice - rumours go that this guy from Stromness has played a madhouse-deconstruction set out in Barcelona. As for what we've heard for ourselves so far, you can be sure of this: GIBRALTAR VACUUM is dancefloor madness at its best! //--//--//_____!> ISOLATED LINES is Fribourg based producer, live act and dj Gwenael Magenat. His *Linear Reflection EP* on Creaked Records made us believe that Techno made in Switzerland has a truly bright future. Balancing the dirt with the dub and the lights with the strobes, ISOLATED LINES has found a demanding and powerful signature sound. //--//--//_____!> MARTIN MEIER from Lucerne's Korsett Kollektiv is one of Switzerland's longest standing quality DJs. Yeah, we're not kidding.
Out Now: Bit-Tuner - The Japan Syndrome
Bit-Tuner's 2nd live album, «The Japan Syndrome», is available as.
Recorded at Zurich's Helsinki Klub, it's a fragmentary snap shot, a rampant audio(visual) trip through Japan's largest cities, that Bit-Tuner visited in spring 2013. The swiss producer captures these cities via field recordings to then transform the found sound into his characteristic dark beats and minimalistic sounds.
The latent humming of Osaka, rumbling old train cars, threatening sounds of police helicopters and ravens on their low flying rounds over the parks of Tokyo. These are the sounds Bit-Tuner elaborately stacks to a slowly and heavyly resonating sound counstruct. Doing this, he picks up a chapter of the emergence of electronic music and simultaneously demonstrates how organic the body of his music is, despite its absolute digital composition.
«The Japan Syndrome» pulls the listener through the gloomy alcoves of a country that seems to be well known to us. Still, Bit-Tuner creates the sinister feeling that arises when one stands at the deep cliffs between cultures.
In June 2013, Bit-Tuner recorded «The Japan Syndrome» live at Zurich's Helsinki Klub, where he works on new material regularly within his residency. Accordingly, this album is influenced by a singular Swiss musical institution. The album's live synthesizers and minimal beats give it an athmospheric denseness, that works just as well in a club at 3am, as also on the following early evening in the shaded bedroom.
[July 2013] Honeys Mix 05:
La B))) - The Dark Rises in the East
The 5th mix in our Honeys Mix series comes from DJ and producer La
Bombe aka La B))) who showcases the direction he's been going in lately:
to the depths of music, combining tracks, soundscapes, loops and
Being a true school turntablist, La B))) handles more than two turntables, looking as if he had more than two hands. In this mix, he is cuddles with clouds of dark ambient sounds, heavy basses and some dodgy beats. There is a lot to discover on this short trip that could go on and on for a whole night.
By the way: this is not an official Haxan Cloak promo mix, it's just that his album 'Excavation' is so good...

Grab yourself a bag of sunshine!
We've spent hours in research and development to come up with a ground breaking idea. The Hula Honeys Sunshine Bag!
The Hula Honeys Sunshine Bag is a strictly limited, hand printed series of 40 pieces. There
are five different flavours on the front side, while the back sides are printed individually - every Sunshine
Bag is an original!
After some time of testing, these are the key features of the Sunshine Bag:
- It is not waterproof. Still, it's ideal to take to the beach, 'cause any towel will fit.
- The strap is adjustable in it's length to fit any person's size.
- It's made to transport small necessities: sun glasses, research papers or grill goods.
- The Sunshine Bag is sealable by a singular Velcro® strip at the top end of the bag.
- It's a hand printed, DIY kinda thing. It'll grow larger with usage, even if the prints aren't made for eternity.
- The colorful, stylish print is ideal to impress your stalker. No matter what's inside the bag.
- There's a whole lot of love in every single Sunshine Bag.
