Ever since her first EP, “Erosoft” (2002), Chloé has not merely strung together purely functional tracks, she has been crafting narratives made from sound.

As much a film enthusiast as an electronic music composer, Chloé’s works has found itself on the likes of BPitch Control, Live at Robert Johnson, Kill the DJ, My Favorite Robot, and Throne of Blood, while also having set a reputation for live sets that thrill by an innate sense of coherence with which she reconciles the eclectic styles presented in her work.

Now, the mind behind Lumière Noire, a platform for protégés, Chloé presents her edition of our mix series, presented as a one hour journey through the eclectic. Featuring (amongst others), her nod to early 80’s new wave in the form of a remix for Dave Clarke‘s ‘Is Vic There?‘ featuring Louisahhh, this is a mix that travels along history and narrative with free flowing ease.

Travelling across three countries, the globetrotting Madorasindahouse & Mashariki Music will bring Floyd Lavine and a slew of East Africa’s finest ambassadors of electronic music to Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda from 31 May – 2 June.

Kicking off at Nairobi’s The Mirage Towers [Waiyaki Way] (31 May), before heading to Kigali’s Mamba Club (1 June) and wrapping up at Kampala’s Cayenne (2 June): Floyd Lavine; the (frequently featured on DHA) South African and favourite on the likes of Innervisions, RISE, Moon Harbour, and Watergate will be joined by several of the continent’s musical gems. Amongst these acts are Nairobi’s SURAJ, who has emerged as a dynamic, trailblazing musical figure in East Africa, as well as Foozak who will handle supporting duties throughout the tour. In Kampala, active for some twenty years, will be the Femme Electronic founder, the multi-format DJ Rachael who will be joined by the Madorasindahouse resident DJ Le Croque. Finally, Rwandan party starter Deejay Africano will join Floyd as the tour wraps up in Kigali’s beautiful live venue, Mamba Club.

Not only traversing East Africa with its finest sounds, the Mashariki Music tour will also raise awareness and funds toward the conservation of the Ugandan Mountain Gorilla alongside the Uganda Tourism Authority. With an estimated 880 left in the wild, the critically endangered species calls South Western Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest home, where a select team will trek through, donating funds from the trek to Mountain Gorilla conservation, and further highlighting the cause with the tour’s after video.

Stay tuned for all the ticket information:

One of the most prominent representatives of London House Music, Steven Julien (aka Funkineven) will return to Amsterdam for the first ever Lente Kabinet weekender.

With his Apron Records imprint instrumental in introducing the likes of Greg Beato and Shanti Celeste to the world, and inimitable technical skills behind the decks, Steve Julien is a complete (and unique) voice in contemporary dance. Born and raised in West London with Grenadian blood, his first foray with rhythm came as a dancer, MC and beatmaker, before moulding smooth cuts of his own, as representative on his 2009 debut EP with Eglo Records.

Steve Julien brings these smooth sounds to Lente Kabinet as it takes over Het Twiske from 27 – 27 May. He will be joining a stellar, and diverse, range of acts across the spectrum of electronic music including Ben UFO, DJ Assault, DJ Fett Burger, DMX Crew (live), Hunee, Kelela (live), Mozhgan, and many more. Here we caught up with Steven to discuss his impending Amsterdam trip, as well as his new mini-LP ‘Bloodline’.

“The drum programming I produce ain’t coming from just me, it comes from a long line of ancestors…”

It’s been some 2 years since your album “Fallen.” Now, with a mini LP out soon, can you describe the last two years for you, creatively? When did you start working on this project? What was its original seed? How many manifestations did it have until it was ready for release?
Touring took too much of my time to create so I had to cut it back to make music because my main passion as a producer was getting swallowed up by DJing. I was hungry to make beats so making ‘Bloodline’ came pretty easy as I was starving to make music. I think the first 2 tracks are dark so that might give people an impression that the whole EP is dark, it defo gets lighter and more musical as it goes along till the end. “Fallen” was the opposite, it started light and then got darker plus its twice as long. Yes, maybe it can bang in the club more than “Fallen” but for me I still love listening to it cozy at home – plus! It defo feels more in your face sonically and also three dimensionally, maybe because this is my first project using all my new outboard gear that helped me mixed / engineered it to a higher level, I think personally…

As much as you can (or are willing) can you describe a little about the track names? For example, the story behind “Queen of Ungilsan”.
Ungilsan is a district/area in South Korea where I visited the monks at the temple on top of the mountains. It was so inspiring to complete the skeleton of this song I had to name it this title – we listened to it in the car while driving down the mountain, so I get memories every time I listen to this song…

The mini-LP is described as an ode to family, as well as Roland’s founder Ikutaro Kakehashi. This leads me to understand that your relationship with Roland and its gear is also of a highly personal nature. How would you describe your introduction and initial reaction to the sound and capabilities of Roland?
This LP is not a “tribute” but I mostly use Roland original pieces, yes. I can’t get enough of it, especially the TR 808, that thing just makes hits (hits you in the right places). I love driving it hot into mic pre’s – sounds beautiful through a Toft ATB mic pre and a Neve 517 mic pre – this is how I recorded track 3 – ‘Bloodline’. I ran the whole TR808 into one channel then turned the Toft mic pre knob all the way up! Then a sprinkle of the Roland Juno for the pads.. beautiful combo.. so yeah’ big up Ikutaro Kakehashi for making this possible. I obviously heard that he passed away last year in April. The music industry today, period, is ran by his sound creation whether its software or drum machines of the 808, pop or underground..

Rest in Power IK.

Describe how Roland and your own family shaped your interest in music, and also how they worked together in developing your creative approach to it?
Yeah, I grew up around music 24-7 with some of my uncles being in the system culture and others being MCs and dancers. This influenced me to try all of it: MC-ing, Dancing and now obviously DJ-ing. But, on a deeper one, I’m also talking about rhythm’ from tribes in Africa and natives from the Caribbean which streams through the family Bloodline rhythm. The drum programming I produce ain’t coming from just me, it comes from a long line of ancestors…

I wasn’t encouraged to play instruments as such but was encouraged to do what I wanted and nurture my craft, freedom to fulfil my dreams…..

By the way, the artwork pics are from my brothers christening after party, which had a big sound system in the living room. I remember the after party never ending and I was aloud to stay up to party till the early hours of the morning…

Over the years, how many pieces of Roland gear do you think you have owned? Which have been your personal favorites? Was there ever a piece of rare gear you had acquired?
8-9 pieces – my favourite piece of course is the TR-808 after that maybe the Juno. I wanna venture into some older Roland pieces and a few of the new boutique range.

…And what about your relationship with Amsterdam? You will be in town this spring for the acclaimed Lente Kabinet Festival. What have been some of your fondest Amsterdam experiences? How was your first experience at Lente Kabinet two years ago?
They were one of the best gigs at a festival that year! I was so bummed that I had to leave straight away after my set as I had to go for another gig, otherwise I would have stayed all day – loved the location!

Born in 2008 with the seminal rework of Scuba’s ‘Hard Boiled’, SCB is the esoteric techno project by Paul Rose, better known as UK bass pioneer and Hotflush Recordings owner Scuba.

This month, SCB continues this uncompromising moniker with “Caibu”, a twelve track LP of cerebral techno, darkened disco and broken beats. The title of the album refers to an imagined surgical procedure where cognitive ability is augmented through transplant from one brain to another. Within this dystopic setting, it draws strength from introspection. At times trapped in a pressurized container, at others floating through vast spaces; SCB merges subdued hypnotism, syncopated basslines and visceral ambience to find his centre. Metallic surfaces are moulded into polyrhythmic patterns replete with ricocheting drums, whilst unfamiliar acoustics provide a backdrop for the unfurling narrative.

“Caibu” is available 13 April on Hotflush Recordings
