Keinzweiter (day 3)

Where to start?

Keinzweiter (Tobias Lorsbach) has been releasing albums since 2001.  He’s very well known for his intelligent, funky, glitchy micro-house and minimal techno, also releasing tunes as Elco Park (with Maximilian Wendling), Superlauncher, Antiga Prime, The Desktop Discoballs, The Postman (not to be confused with another artist with a similar name),  & T Byron.

He’s also the man behind Spontan records, one of my favorite netlabels.

Recommended albums (get some glitch in ya!)

Professor Kliq (day 2 of free-music week)

It’s now day 2 of free music week, and my artist of the day is Professor Kliq.

Professor Kliq came to my attention through the Catching the Waves music blog, one of my favorite sources of quality creative commons music, and I was immediately hooked.  Professor Kliq has got the formula for Chemical Brothers-style big-beat nailed.  Huge rolling electro-bass tracks to get the party-core jacking.

The other thing which Kliq does well is groovy downbeat.

Check out Professorkliq.com for all of his releases.  Of particular note are

Dublicator

It’s the first day of free music week!  Each day, music bloggers  around the world will identify an artist who they particularly rate, and the friendly folks at musikpiraten e.v. will aggragate the information together.  It’s an attempt to make the best of creative commons music accessible, which is a pretty worthy aim I think, so I’m going to attempt to participate.

My artist for the day is Dublicator.

Dublicator is the name that Tamás Olejnik uses for his dub & dub-techno releases.  He first came to my attention with the excellent Deep Roots EP, released through the Deep in Dub netlabel.

My personal favourite on this is definitely Echoes of Babylon – have a listen.

I next came across Chord Centre, another DID release, which has got to be my all-time favorite dub-techno album.   Just great smooth, deep quality dub techno.  I don’t have a particular favourite, it’s all pretty good.

In undertaking this proto-review, I’ve realised that this is really just scratching the surface of this fantastic artist.  He has a number of releases running right back to 2006, and has continued onwards to 2010 (details here).   I’ll certainly have to continue my investigations into his past a bit once my work calms down a little.  🙂

On another note, I see with great sadness that with his latest release Tamas has gone to the darkside, and is now releasing his music out of the creative commons realm.  I for one am hoping he returns to his deep roots.
