GUDRUN GUT

BIO

Gudrun Gut’s CV is an eclectic one, spanning a wide range of media and
collaborations.

While still a student at the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin (1978-84) Gut
first came to prominence in the early eighties as part of a scene the
media dubbed "ingenious dilettantes". A member of Mania D (with Bettina
Koester and Beate Bartel) and an early incarnation of Einstürzende
Neubauten she soon formed successful eighties all-female art rock band,
'MALARIA!' with Bettina Koester, then touring Europe and the USA with a 5
piece line up including Manon P.Duursma, Susanne Kuhnke, Christine Hahn.
'Malaria!' is still talked about and even reached the charts in 2001 via a
“kaltes Klares Wasser” remix by "ChicKs on Speed", incidentally.
In the late eighties Gut was part of three women band MATADOR (with Manon
P.Duursma and Beate Bartel) and started to use a computer for her
compositions - since the early nineties Gut has been responsible for some
film scores, videos and radio plays. In 1991 she started the Miasma
Project, an international mixed media collaboration with MYRA DAVIES
(Canada).
Two years later she founded the OCEANCLUB, a loose collective of
likeminded souls with a unique approach for music, taking it from a
variety of angles. A result was the Pop CD "G.Gut: Members of the
Oceanclub" which was recently rereleased on Moabit Musik including an
extra cd with remixes.

Founder and owner of two labels (Monika Enterprise and Moabit Musik) Gut
promotes unconventional attitude.
Moabit Musik (est. 1990, 15 releases to date) reissues material by
Malaria!, Matador, Miasma and other projects with a personal involvement,
while Monika Enterprise supports young artist in the realm of new
electronic/independent music (est. 1997, over 50 releases to date) such as
Quarks, Barbara Morgenstern, Komeit or Contriva.
A skilled audio engineer, programmer and record producer Gut is active in
the technical production and commercial sectors of the recording industry.

Introduced to internet broadcasting and new media communications Gut
curates or produces live electronic media events all over Europe,
featuring both her own work (as a DJ / Music selector) and that of other
artists (Monika Label Nights, Oceanclub Nights, Marke B - a Berlin Label
gathering curated by oceanclub- Gudrun Gut, Thomas Fehlmann and Daniel
Meteo).

Together with Thomas Fehlmann Gut hosts and co-produces OCEANCLUB Radio, a
weekly 2 hour show of "musica obscura" on Radio Eins, Berlin - for real
audio streams check out: OceanClub Radio bei Radio Eins.

Apart from her eclectic DJ appearances in Clubs and at Festivals Gut
recently completed her solo album which was released in April 2007 and is
now doing live-performances with her laptop and microfone accompanied by
videoclips.

BOOKING OFFER: SCUBA

Posted in Uncategorized on novembre 26, 2010 by debloque
Hi,

I'm arranging some dates for Scuba.
He's available in January on 21 + 22 + 28 + 29
In February on 4 + 5 + 11 + 12 + 19
In March: The whole months.

Please find here some reviews and also please visit Scuba's Myspace:
http://www.myspace.com/paulhotflush

I hope to hear from you asap.

Regards.

Alain

When the numerous permutations of dubstep are discussed, Paul Rose (Scuba)
is usually credited with steering the genre toward softer, more musical
arrangements. Scuba has done this both through his own work and through
his stewardship of the almost bulletproof Hotflush label, home to 2009's
nominally dubstep breakouts by Mount Kimbie and Joy Orbison. On
Triangulation, Scuba continues his label's thrilling run with a proper
full-length of fluid, melodic dubstep that sounds beautiful and aggressive
in equal measure.

If Scuba's name doesn't resonate quite like those of his labelmates, it's
likely because through one full-length (2008's A Mutual Antipathy) and an
armful of singles, Scuba has yet to stumble into one breakout track (his
remix of his own "Hard Boiled", under his SCB moniker, came closest).
Scuba tracks tend to fall into one of two camps: bass-heavy thumpers or
slow, melodic cut-ups that often sound like dubstep's version of a ballad.
Scuba's dance numbers have a tendency to lie in the weeds and lurk; where
a song like "Hyph Mngo" sounds like a siren, Scuba's are the glue that
hold a mix together. (See: DJ /rupture subtly weaving Scuba's "Braille
Diving" into the second half of Uproot.)

This seamless construction defines Triangulation. What Scuba lacks as a
dance hit-maker he makes up for with careful pacing and an ever-present
tension between dark, tech-y sounds and inviting melodicism. These sorts
of daring sleight-of-hand tricks are Scuba's specialty. "Before" sounds
like Boards of Canada covering modern R&B, and it leads into "Tracers", a
pounding, industrial-strength romp. "So You Think You're Special" plasters
an echoing, hopeful loop ("Here you'll find the one/ Here in the sun")
over ominous, pulsing bass. It's not a comedown so much as club music for
those who never make it out of the apartment.

Had "dubstep" never entered the lexicon, it would be easy enough to label
Triangulation house music, but without the implied build-ups or ecstasy.
Triangulation ultimately falls into the dubstep camp because of its mood
and temperament. By expertly juxtaposing the dark with the romantic, the
hectic with the serene, Scuba's produced a triumphant, balanced album.
It's also one that can feel too well adjusted. It's easy to hear parts of
Triangulation as clay for bridging DJ sets or potent source material for
remixers. But Triangulation is also worthy of attention in its own right,
a cohesive record whose complications lurk just under its surface.

Scuba finds his bearings amidst the pillars of dubstep, garage, techno and
electronica on his outstanding second album. The last two years since the
release of the landmark 'A Mutual Antipathy' album have been something of
a golden period for the head of the Hot Flush clan and resident at
Berghain's Sub:stance event. With a probing curiosity and focussed remit,
he's matched a clutch of previously incongruous dancing styles with a
subtlety and class that's ensured respect from all corners of the club.
'Triangulation' guarantees that position with a superior set of future
classics, connected thematically by impressive levels of electro-acoustic
spatial technicality and divided only by an insistence on exploring
multiple tempos and the freshest riddimic functions. 'On Deck' for
example, is his nod to the burgeoning Afro-Funky house germ that's
infecting everyone, executing kinky kick/snare syncopations with typically
Scuba-styled reinforcements. Everything here just feels like it's been
engineered to some highly exacting standards, the shuffle-tek garage
engines of 'Three Sided Shape' and 'Glance' have been tuned to the nth
degree, while dynamic synthlines open and unfurl with precise movements on
'Heavy Machinery' and the masterfully spacious mixing throughout proves
that the devil has been well worked into the detail

BOOKING OFFER: BOXCUTTER

Posted in Uncategorized on novembre 21, 2010 by debloque

Hello,

I’m arranging some selected shows for Boxcutter.
Open adtres aren on 25th February and 5th March.
Here are some reviews for your info:

Dubstep mainstay Boxcutter aka Norn Iron’s Barry Lynn delivers his third album for Planet Mu with a distinct progression in sound from the hyper processed ‘Glyphic’. It seems the ultra-tech programming of his previous two albums has left Boxcutter in need of a change, resulting is this shockingly organic and refreshingly energised take on garage, hardcore and electronica with some jazzual help from his buddies in Kinnego Flux. The first real change is ‘Mya Rave’ feeling almost naked without the dynamic trickery, but massively benefitting from richer analog tones, naturally spacious reverbs and a crafty sample of Foul Play’s ‘Dubbin’ You’ used to awesome effect. ‘Arecibo Message’ refers to a sonic signal beamed into space via frequency modulated radio waves in 1974, and it’s representation on this album is a rude breakstep cutter, harking back to the more turbulent sound of early Vex’d mixed with LP5-era Autechre, but it’s when Lynn indulges his predilection for Jazzy improv that some of the most magical moments on the album occur, such as ‘Old School Astronomy’ or ‘A Familiar Sound’ taken from the single with Kinnego Flux. Finishing on the couplet of ‘Kab28’ and ‘A Cosmic Parent’ is a canny move, seeing Lynn move through his entire repertoire of equipment from synths to guitars to delay pedals to neatly blur their boundaries with his unique style.

Having more than whetted the Dubstep community’s seething appetite through a couple of mighty 12″s over on Mu and Hotflush, Boxcutter has found the time to lay out a full-fat album brimming with grubby bass, heavy beats and all manner of electronic dovetails. Pretty much the sole torch-carrier for the Northern Irish dubstep scene, Barry Lynn (aka Boxcutter) makes the kind of lead-heavy missives which share the cross-over appeal of Burial or VEX’D, whilst keeping a foot firmly in the more electronically-founded margins of the genre. Opening with previous 12″ ‘Tauhid’ (sounding just as skittery as it did on release), Boxcutter proceeds to chew the back-end off all manner of digitally fractured beats; with the likes of ‘Grub’, ‘Rikta’ and ‘Brood’ borderline AFX in their gnarled manipulation of the silicon. Really hitting his stride on the barnstorming ‘Skuff’d’ and ‘Silver Birch Solstice’, Lynn is yet another member of the ever-swelling dubstep scene who is willing (and able) to introduce a broader palate of sounds, ensuring the genre continues to flourish and, most crucially, avoid the stagnation so prevalent in anything that gets tagged ‘underground’. With some huge albums due in the near-future (Burial, Skream etc.), 2006 is looking likely to be remembered as the year dubstep came of age. Diamond cut.

You’ll probably know Barry Lynn better as Boxcutter, whose albums Glyphic and Oneiric have stirred up a fuss in various factions of the music world. You might consider Boxcutter to be a logical update of IDM, taking the expanded sonic horizons of the genre and transposing them into a more contemporary dubstep-related context. This collection of early recordings by Lynn showcases this meeting of styles in its nascent stages, referencing breakbeats, garage, dub and jazz alongside the more distinctive Aphexisms that litter his current crop of material. These productions come from the 2002 to 2005 period, situating themselves within the context of a scene that was yet to truly edify itself, consequently, there are few overt nods to dubstep as we know it now – instead Balancing Lakes sounds like a fascinatingly unfocussed affair – but Lynn’s technical, detailed programming remains in full effect regardless of whether or not anyone had a single, handy catch-all name for what Lynn was experimenting with at the time

I hope to hear from you very very soon.

Regards.

Alain

BOOKINGNG OFFER: SHARRON KRAUS + NANCY WALLACE

Posted in Uncategorized on novembre 20, 2010 by debloque
Hello,

I'm booking some gigs for Sharron Kraus and Nancy Wallace.
They're touring together.
The're available between 23rd and 31st January 2011.

Sharron Kraus:

Sharron Kraus has been described as “Shirley & Dolly Collins melded into
one” along with some semblance to Anne Briggs. Whilst this was intended as
an accolade, which it is, she is not your typical “folk” singer as her
latest album, The Woody Nightshade, demonstrates.

Her work is unmarred by twee pop sensibilities and commercial expectation.
Her vocal style is soft and endearing but don’t be fooled, as she will
guide you through a dark land. Her contrasting early love for folk and
cerebral gothic music have created a unique and often dark sound of her
own. She has never been one for standing still: She has performed with
Irish free-folk collective United Bible Studies and alongside Trembling
Bells’ Alex Neilson. Sharron has also embarked on recorded partnerships
with Californian troubadour Christian Kiefer on 2006’s The Black Dove;
Espers’ Meg Baird and Helena Espvall on the traditional album Leaves From
Off The Tree that same year; and gathered an ensemble cast of folk singers
on Right Wantonly A-Mumming in 2007 for a collection of seasonal songs.

The Woody Nightshade is her fourth studion album. Her fad free approach to
folk continues, all be it along a slightly different path from her last
album, The Fox’s Wedding. Drums, electric guitar and bass take the place
of banjo and fiddle to transport us once more again into her timeless myth
filled world. We’re not talking a Dylan goes electric moment here, she
instead offers a new screen through which to experience her work. The
effect is subtle yet dramatic and adds new tone and colour to her songs.

NANCY WALLACE:

Nancy Wallace is a singer and musician hailing from Suffolk, but now
firmly ensconced in east London. She came to notice singing with The
Memory Band, and features on the albums The Memory Band and Apron Strings.
She now sits happily amongst the ranks of The Owl Service which she is
enjoying very much indeed. Her solo releases began with the critically
acclaimed Young Hearts EP, songs from which have been included on both
volumes of Tom Middleton's Crazy Covers albums, Paris Derniere and the Big
Chill compilations. In January of 2009 she released her debut full length
album, Old Stories on Midwich Records. Her tunes are enhanced no end by
the amazing violin skills of Jennymay Logan of the Elysian Quartet, and
more recently Richard Lewis has added add his inimitable accordian, banjo
and hurdy gurdy to a couple of tracks. She is also embarking on joint
musical endeavours with Jason Steel

Nancy was nominated this year in the Horizon category at the BBC Folk
Awards. She is currently recording the follow up to Old Stories, as well
as a joint album with Jason

Booking Offer: HARAKIRI

Posted in Uncategorized on novembre 10, 2010 by debloque

Hello,

For a change I’m booking a totally different band: HARAKIRI
Please visit their site: http://www.myspace.com/harakirewiet

I’d like to hear from you ASAP.

They can play on their own in small places or be great as a support
and also please read this:

In the beginning there was nothing until, at a certain moment, some spermatozoa found it necessary to proceed to the fertilization of some germ cells. After a few decades this resulted in the noise of Not Yet, the Clitpunkinvasion. Around the turn of the century, some members of the Clitpunkinvasion could still hear well enough to listen to the call of nature for procreation, which led, together with a huge demotivation, to the irrevocable split of the band.

Some members however, being Carolex (guitar) and Josiax (saxophone), decided to keep on harassing humanity for a little longer and founded the band Harakiri. Around February 2002 they kidnapped the bass player from the Belgian band De Bossen, Inneke 23 and asked their charming friend Daphne to join them to hit the drums. This sexy girl is, by the way, the only Harakiri who never played in a band before and, much to the regret of our male fans, totally queer!

About the music, Harakiri continues where Not Yet stopped: simple punk rock riffs filled up with a considerable sense of humour and a spark of insanity and sexual frustration now and then.

Only one year after the birth of HaraKiri, they dived into the studio to record 14 songs, which they released as Ha-Haha on their own label The Twilight Bark that same summer. The reactions on Ha-Haha were so good, that they were even invited to play some concerts in New York City, including CBGBs

Unfortunately a few months later, Josiax decided to leave the band, so they continued as a trio. But that didn’t keep them from attacking the human ears. And then somewhere in spring 2007 – since he was always around anyway and jumped with Hara’Kiri on stage on several occasions – it seemed the most natural thing that their good friend Wim DB (De Bossen) joined the band to add an extra touch of rock n roll!
