31.07.2010 - A night of Urban Poetry in Berlin

What a crazy weekend is standing in front of us! If you're in Berlin, you should definitely check out this two Urban Poetry showcases. First, the mighty Es.tereo is playing at RAW Temple (also check out the new ASC Kmag Mix, featuring "Void" from Es.tereo & Altair) and second, me, Turrican is playing in Rosis. The good thing is, that both of the clubs are in the same street (called the "Berlin Technostrich"), so its quite easy to switch venues during the night.

The Line Up in RAW Temple delivers us, alongside of the unique sound of Es.tereo, a big variety of DNB - from hard to smart - with a wide range of Berlins DNB Djs.

In Rosis, the sound of the night will be a bit more "techy", playing with Dsci4's Dementia from Linz/ Austria, Berlins very special Therapy, who will show us some harder beats from the Subsistenz Camp, and Audiomassive's Mo.

So be there and enjoy the sound of Urban Poetry!
Future Music.

Dominic Ridgway is the Winner of the Sabre Kmag Remix Competition!

There are some days were everything seems to be perfect. One of this days was yesterday when i read that Dominic Ridgway has won the Kmag Critical Remix Competition of Sabre's (outstanding) One Hundred Teeth, a tune i liked to play a lot the last months.
His Remix is a deep and abstract journey, putting some of the original arrangements together and build something absolutly new and fancy out of them. Taking Drum and Bass into a new, far out level. It is a really fresh and innovative piece of music. Makes me happy that he and his sound gets this big attention and he receives what he deserves.
Take a listen to his Remix of Sabre's One Hundred Teeth here:

This one is shaping the future!

So i want to send my congratulations from Berlin for his little Masterpiece!
A interview with Dominic you can read here:

Also add him on Myspace and listen to his music on Soundcloud!

Watch out for his forthcoming EP coming on Urban Poetry featuring his massive Spirit Level (you can hear it here) and some more, fresh and mindblowing cuts. Absolutly watching forward to this release!
Also check out his releases on Dubkraft, Silk Recordings and other labels. I will keep you updated about the newest developments.

This musical wizard is definetly worth to keep an eye (or ear) on! Big.

Abstractions #11 mixed by Flatliners

Check out this great Mix from the mighty Istanbul based Flatliners (Future Thinkin, Broken Audio, urbanpoetry)!
Absolutly outstanding sound. For me one of the most influencal producers the last few months, loving each of their tracks since i heard them the first time last winter ( add them on myspace! ). Deep, dark, techy (and on the other hand rooty again) sounds are meeting abstract and minimal surfaces with a flavour of Ragga and Dub. Drums from space are flying through places filled with thousands of fireflys and dive into a warm synth driven ocean of sweet melancholy. Nice ride. Sadly there is no tracklist yet, but I'm sure it's on it's way. So have a nice weekend and enjoy this little masterpiece fresh from the European Capital of Culture 2010. Check it. Pure Vibes.

Also look out for their forthcoming tunes on Broken Audio, Future Thinkin, Cylon, etc.. Absolutly hot!

Sideline Information:
Abstraction is a Birmingham, UK based regular Event wich features upcoming and fresh vibin music from all over the world. Flatliners are playing there their UK-Debut at May 21, 2010 alongside (the atm for me absolutly amazing) Rockwell, Jubei, Pessimist, Joe Syntax and others. Absolutly blazing line-up! Nice 1!

He is also playing on the Electrofloor under his alias Scheckkartenpunk; here you can expect some proper Electro-Punk mixed with some fresh cuts from the friendly Audiolith Camp. Dancefloor Mayhem.
Really looking forward for this and i hope i will see some familiar faces there. Feel free to contact me for guestlist. See you there!
