Party Report: Lente Kabinet 2017

Amsterdam’s Lente Kabinet festival is the annual little sister to it’s renowned Dekmantel event. Organized by the same minds, and frequently featuring similar artists (albeit at less than 1/3 of the latter’s multi-day, city-wide offering), Lente Kabinet is something of a precursor to the massive summer events to come (I mean, the English translation has “Spring” in it…but most of you knew already that already), as well as a (welcome) relief from the barrage of open format, mainstream festival events which tend to monopolize and create a complacency toward all those arbitrary definitions of “underground” out there. My own experience ... Read more

Here, Matthew Herbert delivers one of two remixes of Tyoma‘s “Haze” remix package. This one, the Trump Dub, is full of weird instrumental sounds, high pressure drums and weird vocals that all add up to one mind blowing trip. “Haze” is available 9 June of Live on Mars

“Edible Sounds” Project Launches Record Made From Tortilla

DJ producer Matthew Herbert has launched a new release series called “Edible Sounds”. The records live up to their title, as in you can actually eat them. And the first food-based vinyl in the series is… a tortilla. The music on the tortilla record is laser-etched onto the surface of the popular food. “It should be playable on a normal hifi, but [is] unlikely to be delicious,” Herbert writes on Twitter. The tortilla records are been produced in a batch of twelve, and are created on commission from the Science Gallery London. Edible Sounds isn’t Herbert’s first try at unconventional musical realisation, having previously made music from “a ... Read more
