    • Fantastikoi Hxoi

    • Our latest podcast comes from our man in Athens, Fantastikoi Hxoi. Translated as ‘Imaginary Sounds’, FH first came to our attention several years ago with some amazing edits of obscure Greek pop, rock and folk tunes, among other global music.

      Using samples from classic or totally forgotten tracks, FH creates a peculiar retro-futuristic sound through complete reconstruction or a drastic re-edit. 2008’s ‘Masters Of The Universe’ 2LP (self-released and available for free at fantastikoihxoi.blogspot.com) has amassed plenty of fans with over 15,000 downloads. The follow-up is expected to be released from the Inner Ear label in the coming months.

      Enjoy.

      We asked him to put together this mix for the podcast and with Zomby sitting alongside It’s A Fine Line, we have not been disappointed, a man after our own heart! Watch out for him at a forthcoming H&P soon.

    • Drum Talk

    • DrumTalk caught our attention with a sparse pitch containing a link to his excellent remix for the equally as excellent Sofrito label. After a bit more investigating, this new project from a well established producer, shares an affinity with all we love in African rhythms and his productions display a real depth and refreshing ideas. We expect this won’t be the last you’ll hear of him in the coming months.

    Since starting the label we’ve noticed our inbox gradually clogging up with demos from chumps around the world. As such, we’re beginning to develop an intuition to dismiss on sight anything with reference to the Beatport charts, support from random Italian names or residencies in unheard of clubs.

    With a pretty bulging release schedule on the horizon, we’re not really on the look out for new material, but occasionally something enters our radar worth a closer look…

    It’s no secret that we’re big fans of the Cómeme label round these parts. With Matias Aguayo at the helm, the label has harboured some of the most fun and exciting music to emerge in recent years – blurring the gaps between Chicago house, Italo disco, kwaito and their latin roots along the way. Rebolledo is arguably the most prolific producer to emerge since the label’s inception and has succeeded in cultivating a distinct sound of his own; taking lessons in hypnotism from Cologne, dancefloor sensibilities from Moroder and MJ and a pinch of drama from Morricone. He’s the first artist to release an album, Super Vato on the label – out now. We caught up with him below.

    Rebolllllledo! Do you have a cigarette?

    No, I don’t smoke. (I Don’t Smoke)

    What got you started? Was there a large electronic scene in Mexico?

    About 10 years ago I used to go out at night every weekend and dance like there was no tomorrow… I enjoyed this so much, but at some point dancing was not enough any more, so I started to learn the craft of DJing as a hobby… When I finished school I had an offer to spend the summer in Playa del Carmen playing for “La Santanera”, a really cool club, and I thought it was a cool thing to do before starting to work in something related to what I studied… What happened at the end is that I stayed almost 4 years instead of 2 months and made DJing my career…

    Years later, DJing suddenly was not enough… I couldn’t find the right music to create the moments I wanted to in the dancefloor, and that’s when I decided to start doing my own music.

    There has always been a scene in Mexico, but I never really cared about belonging to it… My priority has always been to have fun and play what I like without worrying if it fits to some scene or trend.

    Who and what were your inspirations?

    Hard to say specific stuff or names, but I love disco drive, I love The Warriors movie, I love cars and motorcycles, I love Michael Jackson, I love repetitive stuff, I love to get lost while dancing… A mix of all this, I think has a lot to do with what I do and how I do it.

    Given the current political climate, how is the current scene in Mexico? You help run a club, right?

    Growing and getting pretty interesting I would say… Lots of new young people doing really nice stuff and cool clubs and promoters doing nice things.

    Yes, I co-own TOPAZdeluxe, a small club in Monterrey, the vibe there is really great, it’s one of my favorite places to play for sure. It’s a shame that lately the night life of the city has been really affected because of the nonsense violence, but still, even though the venue is not as packed as it used to be, the great spirit remains and the parties are still amazing.

    You’ve also done a spot of video directing for your releases, is this something you keep an active interest in?

    Jajajaj, I don’t know if that qualifies as directing… I just like to have another way to show my music, and I try to do it in a way that I have fun and with aesthetics that I can somehow relate to my music.

    There seems to be a hypnotic theme or sound in your music, is that something you’re conscious of? Where does this come from?

    Getting lost in music while dancing is what I like the most, and this reflects in how I produce and play, this comes naturally and I’m never thinking: “Oh, I’m gonna do hypnotizing music”, it’s just how it comes out.

    Although your album is coming out on Cómeme, your music seems to be moving towards a more Kompakt influenced sound. How big an influence does Kompakt have?

    I find all this label talk a bit lame and useless to be honest… I just do my thing how I feel it at the moment I’m doing it without thinking if some one has to like it, or to fit in certain scene or sound. An album is so different from the usual singles… There’s a chance to show a much wider range of messages, and in my case the productions were more complex than usual. Maybe in this bigger range of sounds some influences might be found, but it’s nothing I did on purpose.

    And you’ve started a label, Hippie Dance with your pal Superpitcher? What plans do you have with that? Will it be exclusively your own material? Or will you be looking to sign other artists?

    We will not look for… We’ll just find them if they match the spirit we see in our label. We just want to have an output for music we like, no mater the style. We want to be super free with this project and just take away the process of showing material for approval. The first releases are Pachanga Boys productions, but other stuff is already on the table. We have no schedule pressure and we will definitely never use the word “Sign”, which is totally pretentious, specially for such an independent project like Hippie Dance.

    What lies ahead for 2012?

    Promoting my album will be my first priority for the first months, also I’m gonna be preparing stuff with Superpitcher related to our shows for the summer, and go over the final details of our first Pachanga Boys album which will be released on Kompakt.

    Super Vato is now available both on vinyl and digitally on Cómeme.

    • Clement Meyer

    • Check out a Cold War mix from rising Parisian techno talent, Clement Meyer. We shoot the breeze with him on his excellent Get The Curse site / label and catch up with the goings on in the current scene in Paris.

    We first came across the Get The Curse blog when Ivan Smagghe started a semi regular contribution with his hidden ‘back of the box’ gems. This would later set a precedent for Ivan’s current blog form – with which you should be familiar with by now. The GTC guys have been on our radar ever since with Clement’s productions going from strength to strength and their acclaimed label releasing the likes of Le Loup, Crackboy and Photonz. When we first moved to London, we caught them play at Fabric and were suitably impressed.

    Away from the house and techno music that he’s famed for, Clement has kindly put together a ‘Cold War’ mix for the blog (tracklisting further down). We caught up with him below.

    H&P:  For the uninitiated, can you give us a bit more background behind Get The Curse?

    Clement: Get The Curse is my family, and it represents a very particular approach to music and aesthetics. It’s also about good taste in club culture. It all began in 2007 with our blog, which was followed by the launch of our residency at Social Club which lasted 3 years, and finally with our label ‘Get The Curse Music’, launched in early 2010.

    And what’s been happening with the label?

    2010 has been an exciting year with the birth of our label. We felt a strong expectation around us to go beyond the activities of an ordinary blog. Actually there were 2 goals : first, to release exciting music and create our own sound identity and second, to discover fresh talent and develop an artist team. 2011 has been the year of consolidation for all those things. We had amazing support on our last EP’s (Crackboy – Man of Steel or Clement Meyer – Unconditionnal Unknown). Darabi is slowly gathering huge support in the scene and their next EP will surely be one of the most highly anticipated EPs in our catalogue.

    Also GTC welcomed new artists to its roster like Crackboy. Expect a few surprises in the future. But since i don’t like to reveal things too early, the only thing i can say is that our next EP will be a solo EP by Alixander from Azari & III. Expect weirdness and clinical disco madness, whatever that means.

    And as a producer? Who have you been working with and what’s coming out soon?

    I’ve just released my new track on Items & Things. I really like that one. And i also released my Sweet Insanity EP on Correspondant which is Jennifer Cardini’s label. I’ve done a few remixes also on Populette’s Throne of Blood, Bang Gang, FVF and Save you. This year has been really exciting in terms of production. I have the feeling people now understand better my music. I‘ve been lucky to sign on super labels such as Tigersushi, Kill The DJ, Turbo and now Items & Things.

    You also run parties, right? How have you been finding the scene in Paris?
    Our residency at Social Club ended in March, only to start fresh at the Rex club this summer. It is pretty big challenge to break a 3 year old dynamic in a club to start a new one, but it’s important to move forward and to maintain excitment around this party in Paris. We did the first one with Ryan Crosson, Luke Abbott, Crackboy and myself and the next one will be in November with Troy Pierce, Alex Smoke and me again. I cannot say there’s a real effect from the recession. Paris is now living an exciting period for clubbing. There’s a lot of crews, a lot of parties and amazing supports by the clubbers. Actually, things are very positive at the time being.

    Which new talent should we be looking out for?

    I know some very exciting artists but you’ll find out them when they’ll do their EP on GTC !

    Tell us a bit more about the mix…

    Well this is my 3rd mix tape dedicated to rarities and vintage stuff. It’s more of a selection (no DJ set transition) than a usual mix. I just want to share music that strongly influence my music, it’s droney, experimental, synthetic. This is music for curious and passionate people.
    Future plans?

    I’m working on new solo tracks , but I’m also preparing a project with Tomas More and another with Phil from Darabi. Hope we’ll do something good!

    What was the last film you enjoyed?

    Since he died this year, I’d say any Sidney Lumet’s films

    Recent book?

    The Other Hollywood : it’s about the history of porn industry. Pretty funny book.

    Current favourite tracks?

    New project called Low Jack, this is pretty exciting. Also a rarity by Manuel Gotsching called Private Tapes (vol 1-6). Simply beautiful!

    Thanks Clement. Keep a watchful eye on the GTC site for H&P’s return mix in a similar style sometime soon.

Whilst 0.5 of Jam Factory and DSS headman Dan Beaumont took care of business upstairs…

    However the aforementioned wild man Kaos didn’t show and we were instead treated to an 7 hour set from all round good guy Tiago. Having already been a fan of his productions for the likes of DFA, ESP Institute and Golf Channel we were blown away by Tiago’s extended selection of house cuts from the resident at Lisbon’s premiere nightclub, Lux. With such a mass market of DJ mixes circulating nowadays its refreshing to hear one as fine as this without any idea of what the tracks are. We’d love to find out, but we’re just as content to keep them a mystery. Enjoy.

    Our friends at Secret Danger Society John and Ollie, host a monthly party on the last Saturday of the month at The Moustache Bar in Dalston mainly playing across the disco, house and techno spectrum with the occasional themed night – playing music strictly from New York for example.

    Ollie put together this mix and we’ve had it on repeat for a number of weeks (apologies to him for the delay in posting). Not only does it include the next H&P release, what we like most of all is the way Ollie’s managed to mix up house old and new with ease – demonstrating that the new strains of house music from the likes of Maurice Donovan (Ramadanman), xxxy and Julio Bashmore sit comfortably alongside classics on Strictly Rhythm, from Francois K, Deep Dish et al.

    Check them out this Saturday, as ever entry is free and it’s always packed. In the meantime, have a swatch at their site to see what they’re about. http://secretdangersociety.com/

We suggest you get a ticket in advance for this here.

    Watch out for forthcoming shows with Ducktails and Julian Lynch. More here.

    They were very kind to put together this mix months ago and we hope they accept our apologies in the length of time it’s taken to share. Enjoy.

    • Andy Blake

    • We have a great deal of admiration for Andy Blake. A DJ who stands out amongst the unsettling ease of the laptop DJ and thinks nothing of playing a 5 hour set strictly from 7″ vinyl only – (the below mix is ‘a selection of hard and hairy psychedelic funk rock 7″s’). Since the days of running one of our favourite and not forgotten labels, Dissident, he’s went on to produce and release records under his Cave Paintings guise – which, as the name suggests are stripped back, primitive and raw analogue beasts.

      A genuine salt of the earth Londoner, born and bred, we ruminate with him below.

    A genuine salt of the earth Londoner, born and bred, we ruminate with him below.

    H&P’s Andrew: I’d only visited London a handful of times before moving down and now
    with the benefit of retrospect, it never ceases to amaze me how
    rapidly life here accelerates; music scenes disappear as quickly as
    they emerge and areas transform in what I can only equate to being the
    frenzied quest for the ‘new’. What’s your thoughts? Being an old hand,
    it must feel like living in London 10 times over? How do you feel it’s
    influenced you?

    Andy Blake: I had a great time growing up here. There was always loads of great
    music and revolutionary energy around. From punk and reggae when i
    first started noticing what was going on in and around Brixton during
    the mid 70s, all the way thru to the acid house/balearic explosion
    that I cottoned onto during the early part of 88.

    I’d always been a bit suspicious of straight-up ‘dance music’ until
    then (although i thought the 2tone ska revival in the late 70s was
    utterly brilliant and really liked the electro and early hip hop that
    came from New York in the early 80s) but that idea of dj’s refusing to
    acknowledge any musical barriers and playing whatever they knew was
    right for that exact moment and turning rooms full of people into
    whirling dervishes and sending them and their marbles into the
    stratosphere was all i needed to get me hooked. Of course in
    retrospect we can see that it was pretty much just another version of
    it was like in 70′s New York for disco or of course early 80s Chicago
    for the beginnings of house but this was ours and it was great while
    it lasted.

    These days things are all very well organised but a bit too tame for
    my taste. I reckon as the recession begins to bite some exciting stuff
    will start to kick off again, although i doubt you can get the same
    level of positive energy in response to the twin-headed hydra of
    malignant mediocrity that is the Cameron/Clegg axis as what we had
    going in opposition to that vile old cow Thatcher and her cronies
    tearing the heart out of the country. Nowadays people in her position
    are much more sneaky about how they fuck everyone over, they do it in
    a way that doesn’t wake anyone up to it until its too late so everyone
    just joins in with the bullshit because they feel they have no other
    choice. And rather worryingly, it seems that 90-something percent of
    young people in London these days are Conservative by default,
    although most would never own up to it of course – the soulless
    vampire bastards :-)

    Congratulations are in order as you’ve recently celebrated the first anniversary of
    your World Unknown parties in Brixton, how has the past year been and
    do you find a sense of freedom housed somewhere South of the river?

    Thank you very much indeed. The first year of World Unknown has been
    great and yes, being south of the river, or at least, some distance
    from London’s fashionable Hackney has played a great part in us being
    able to get on with it and build something a wee bit special.

    When Joe and I started the night, it was all about doing exactly what
    we wanted with the music and I think if we had been swamped by
    East-end hipsters it would likely have been to our detriment. We had a
    few down in the early days, presumably because we were deemed a new
    and potentially cool thing, but I don’t think they could get their
    heads round the fact that we aren’t a strictly-controlled musical
    museum with pointless barriers to what we play and that there’s not
    even the slightest hint of that smug, knowing, irony that they seem to
    like so much in what we do there. They don’t seem to much like areas
    with postcodes that don’t start with the letter E either.

    There’s a general left-ish and heavily psychedelic aesthetic to what
    we do musically but other than that the gloves are well and truly off
    and we play whatever we want. For example when those 2-bob 128kps new
    beat/industrial fancy dress nights sprang up in East London shortly
    after we started, we almost instinctively stopped playing so much of
    that stuff and shifted into other gears.

    My favourite thing of all about World Unknown (and thats among many;
    our amazing crowd, the venue, the smoke and lights, the lack of any
    bullshit whatsoever, the absolute sea of Red Stripe cans all over the
    floor at the end of the night) is that Joe and I never ever discuss
    what we are going to play at all, either on the night itself or at any
    other time. Neither of us plan anything or work out set times or
    anything like that and we both play loads of new stuff in all kinds of
    styles each time and also play very differently to each other, yet it
    always seems to fit perfectly for that particular moment of that
    particular night.

    We have a full and rocking dancefloor all night whatever we play, our
    crowd are always open to what might happen next and the atmosphere in
    that smoky arch is electric from start to finish. I think I can say
    without fear of contradiction that there are no other places in
    London, and very few in the whole world that are anything like World
    Unknown.

    Moving from one city to another, I’d previously read with a certain
    smugness about your love for Glasgow and its densely populated and
    varied club scene. Can you expand on this more? What other cities have
    impressed you on your recent travels?

    Oddly enough, since the interview where I said that, I’ve hardly been
    booked at all in Glasgow after having done tons of gigs there in the
    year or two previously so maybe I shouldn’t have been so forthright in
    my praise :-) . In all seriousness though, just compare the size of
    Glasgow to London (its roughly 1/8th the population), the number of
    musically interesting nights on in each city every weekend and the
    almost rabid enthusiasm with which the Glasgow crowds devour all that
    music and turn it into dancefloor energy and that just about says it
    all really. And i’m deliberately not going to say anything nice about
    anywhere else in case it jinxes all my gigs there like the Glasgow
    comment a year or so ago did :-) .

    H&P: Having caught you DJ’ing loads of times, I get the impression that
    your message that not everything new is good? Whilst I agree, ethos
    aside, the biggest attraction to Dissident for me was the music and
    how on-point the records were. Each artist was more or less unknown
    and a few are now firm favourites, you clearly demonstrated a good ear
    on this front, is this something we can expect again? What are you
    plans for the future?

    It’s not that i don’t think that new is good, far from it. But newness
    comes in many more forms than just what has been made recently and is
    currently available in the shops as a neatly packaged brand-new
    product. When i’m djing, these days I find it far more new and
    exciting to combine a bunch of disparate and seemingly unrelated music
    from 40 years of dance music/electronic music/disco/whatever you want
    to call it into something that can connect far more deeply, thrill
    people more completely and say far more about that moment in time than
    a set made primarily or solely of brand new releases and/or this weeks
    archive discoveries and re-edits.

    And if I want to play a straight-up house or techno set then there are
    far fresher sounding and heavier, madder, rougher, ruder tunes from
    the 80s and 90s than 99% of the new releases. Of course, that’s hardly
    a new phenomenon and if you go with the idea that 90%+ of everything
    is rubbish and insist on searching out the good stuff then you’ll
    never go far wrong in life. New for the sake of new is just plain
    silly, it’s just slavish consumerism.

    I’m not sure about another label venture like Dissident, after all
    I’ve already done that and made a pretty decent job of it, despite
    never having any kind of game plan or aims. I’d be interested in
    building on what was achieved in those couple of years but a while
    back I had talks with various groups of industry people about
    developing the basic idea that drove Dissident into a new label with
    proper backing so we could focus on albums and developing artists.
    Unfortunately whenever it came to talking turkey it transpired that
    myself and the artists would have to work our tits off for someone
    else’s benefit with no prospect of any financial reward for ages, if
    ever. I’m certainly not greedy but fuck that for a laugh, it’s just
    taking the piss.

    So for now i’m sticking with Cave Paintings, which is purely for my
    own back to basics analogue house and techno explorations, and Joe and
    I will start a World Unknown label at some point in the very near
    future.

    • Men & Machines

    • For a city so small, there’s a few really great nights in Glasgow. Men & Machines is one. More on the others soon, but for now, M&M have been ploughing their furrow for nigh on 3 years bringing some bold and great bookings to the city including Pantha Du Prince, Efdemin, Gavin Russom and more. They’ve got another great one this weekend, NYC edit king Cousin Cole at our joint adopted stable, Stereo. More details here. Here’s some gab from Ewan.

They’ve got another great one this weekend, NYC edit king Cousin Cole at our joint adopted stable, Stereo. More details here. Here’s some gab from Ewan.

    M&M has now established themselves on the clubbing landscape in Glasgow, who or what has been your highlights?

    We’ve had some great live performances from Gavin Russom, Etienne Jaumet and Brain Machine over the last couple of years. DJ wise we have had some great sets from Efdemin and Serge Santiago. JD Twitch’s R&S inspired set for our first birthday party was also a great night.

    What’s on the horizon for M&M?

    We just played over in Belgium and back in Glasgow we have Cousin Cole playing at Stereo on the 22nd of October. He’s over from New York and we can’t wait to finally see him DJ. Beyond that we are playing at Death Disco for their birthday bash in November (the 20th) and then we have Manuel Gottsching’s live performance at Stereo on the 11th of December. All of which we are very excited about.

    How do you think Glasgow has influenced M&M?

    Neither of us are from Glasgow originally but it has been the city where our musical tastes have matured. Men and Machines suits Glasgow’s want, drive and desire for quality music. Whether this relates to established acts or something new, Glasgow has always been a city where the crowd are willing to engage.

  • We first stumbled across New York-based Night Plane via a mix earlier this year from Soul Clap. It wasn’t until we heard the wicked Moscow Allez Allez podcast that we were able to ID the sublime Str8 2 Ur Heart. Upon further investigation, we realised there’s loads going on over at Night Plane’s Soundcloud, with (amongst others) a dreamy re-working of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti – Round and Round being one of the highlights for us over the summer.  He’s been welcomed into This Is Not An Exit‘s fold and answered some questions for us below:

    You’ve recently been in Europe. Tell us about that.

    NP: I was in Berlin most of the summer as usual. It’s the best scenario for recording music – go the clubs there, come home after breakfast with rhythms still in your head and in the silence of the morning put in a few hours of work before passing out.

    How does it compare to the nightlife in NYC?

    NP: New Yorkers can be snobs a bit but that’s why I love them. They have simultaneously very refined and very eclectic tastes but are sometimes frightened by electronic music. the best audiences I wager are in the UK – they’re more open-minded – more omnivorous with their dance tunes

    What’s your plans now that you’re back stateside?
    NP: Working on my Phd and playing music. building a studio with dj harry. I need to get more hardware – I’m a player and twiddling on a laptop all day to make music drives me nuts. takes all the air out of the sound. it’s like taking a shower with a raincoat on.

    H&P: What else can we expect?

    NP: The next piece of vinyl to be inscribed with the name Night Plane will be a single by Command V with one of my remixes as well as mixes by Jacques Renault and Optimo and Moscow. Working with my close partner DJ Harry on more CCC material. It’s more acid-based – using acid like DNA, to stitch together original tracks, edits, classics, bangers, everything. the inaugural CCC mix is in honor of Acid Age, our group blog about psychedelics.

    H&P: We hear there’s a DFA release in the pipeline? Can you elaborate?
    NP: Oh yes, you must be referring to the Night Plane DFA release in my mind. Pretty psyched about that one. While we wait for that one to come out I’ll mention that I should be doing a remix for a girl band on Rough Trade USA in the near future that sounds pretty promising. I get tired of diva vocals. I want to hear more female vocals that are idiosyncratic and evocative.

    Night Plane will be playing live at a H&P affiliated night this Friday at The CAMP in London – joining Shit Robot and BPitch’s We Love for their respective album launches, and Parisians, Acid Washed. Tickets and further details HERE.

    • Acid Washed

    • There seems to be something in the Parisian water – home to some of our favourite electronic artists, labels and musicians period; from Pilooski and the D.I.R.T.Y. gang, Joakim, Krikor and the Tigersushi crew, Cosmo Vitelli and I’m a Cliche, Etienne Jaumet and Versatile, not forgetting of course, Ivan Smagghe and his gaggle from Kill The DJ, there just seems to be an classy air of effortlessness. So it comes as no great surprise that there’s a whole new generation to look out for: Clement Meyer from Get The Curse, Remain and most excitingly of all Acid Washed.

    There seems to be something in the Parisian water – home to some of our favourite electronic artists, labels and musicians period; from Pilooski and the D.I.R.T.Y. gang, JoakimKrikor and the Tigersushi crew, Cosmo Vitelli and I’m a ClicheEtienne Jaumet and Versatile, not forgetting of course, Ivan Smagghe and his gaggle from Kill The DJ, there just seems to be an classy air of effortlessness. So it comes as no great surprise that there’s a whole new generation to look out for: Clement Meyer from Get The Curse, Remain and most excitingly of all Acid Washed. Acid Washed are on another cool label born in the city, Record Makers, home to the likes of Sebastian Tellier and Turzi,but that’s enough namedropping for now. It’s clear they’ve been paying attention to their forefathers influences too – referencing Steve Reich and Giorgio Moroder alongside their love for DFA and French house. Comprising of Richard d’Alpert and Andrew Claristidge, we caught up with both to see what their chat was.

    H&P: We first came across your music through Gavin Russom’s amazing remix of ‘Snake’ – how did that come about?

    Andrew Claristidge: I met Gavin years ago in Berlin when he was still
    living over there. Since then he became a friend of mine. I just asked
    him if he would do a remix for us. As soon as he listened to the track
    (Snake) he told that he knew what he wanted to do… It is such a
    great remix! One of my favorite of this year!

    RDA : On the top of that, Gavin is part of the DFA crew, which is very close
    from us, first of all, in terms of musical universe. We are sharing loads of
    things together, common approaches, especially regarding the use of real
    instruments, real keyboards, etc. Even we are a little more club-orientated,
    it is still our “family”. Btw, it is Xaver Von Treyer (Supersoul/Death from Abroad) who post-produced our album..and he’s the one mixing (as a a dj I mean) the DFA
    compilations.

    H&P: Can you tell us a bit about the mix?
    Andrew Claristidge: as usual for us. There is no thinking before recording a DJ set, no concept! We just let it float! This one was recorded in a studio in Berlin. It starts by the fantastic Blackstrobe’s “Back from Beyond”… then it was easy to mix something strong and dramatic around it! This mix is pretty “retro-techno”, but as usual we cannot resist to put lots of elements in it.

    RDA : Well, it’s a good cross-over of things we are loving at the moment.
    We are always mixing that way, without formally conceptualizing anything
    really. It is very spontaneous, like in a radio show. We are picking up tracks
    & records, and go with the flow. It is melancholic & epic, dark & clubby, because is the men we are.

    H&P: What’s it been like coming from such a rich musical heritage in Paris – with the likes of Kill The DJ, Tiger Sushi and Record Makers nearly reaching 30 years old between them. It must be an exciting place to party, be inspired and develop ideas, oui? Any particular reason why?

    Andrew Claristidge: Music is very important in Paris. In the disco
    time we got a strong bunch of producers like Bernard Estardy, Daniel
    Vanguarde, Jean Pierre Massiera who, I think, built an amazing bridge
    to this 90′s french touch. A very unique sound. Something you hear and you know that it is french. Since 20 years Paris had so many great DJ’s & producers. It is where  Laurent Garnier has established the french techno world.. with heritage like this one how could we fail? We are all kids of Daft Punk, Garnier… they were showing us the way!  It is not the best place to party but there are definetly great places like Social Club, Chez Moune, Le Baron…etc… You can rave hard in Paris! And the city is beautifull! You get inspired on every corner in the streets.

    RDA : I would add although a legendary club which disappeared, and where I was hanging out ALL THE FUCKING TIME when I was a late teenager : the Pulp. This lesbian club learned me everything, absolutely everything. I come from there, and a part of my heart will be always there. I’m proud to be a Parisian, to live in Paris,and to be part of this incredible city, which makes me happier every day…even I’m considering London maybe for good very soon. I wish I could take all my talented friends
    on some sort of Noahs Ark…There’s definitely a great emulation within all electronic music labels based here in Paris, with some many great artists, from Ed Bangers to Record Makers, from Kitsuné to Sound Pelligrino…It is surely one of the greatest place to be now if you’re an electronic producer & if u wanna do something with it!
    H&P: What’s in the pipeline for Acid Washed?
    Andrew Claristidge: too many things;) Our new EP is about to be released with loads of great remixes (The Hacker, Danger, Mickey Moonlight…) http://www.recordmakers.com/production.php?id=76
    We are getting to tour the US end of September. We have also a new video coming up… id that enough for now? Ah I forgot we just finished remixes for Casey Spooner, Louie Austen, Sharam Jey Ft. Tommie Sunshine… We know how to keep ourself busy.

    • Brian d’Souza

    • One of the best things about coming from Glasgow, is the high density of underground music lovers. On any given weekend, you’re confronted with the dilema of which party to check out – with almost all promoting something new and exciting. Then owing to licensing restrictions, there’s the after parties at some flat or another – where like-minded people get together and talk rubbish, talk music and make friends. You’ll be hearing more from some of our local comrades over this mixtape series.

You’ll be hearing more from some of our local comrades over this mixtape series.

    First up: Brian D’Souza first came to our attention as a resident at local institute, Slabs of The Tabernacle; a night which caters for a serious party music lover – booking Detroit legends and Italo heroes alongside local talent. Since becoming regularly acquainted, we forged a bond over our love of Zomby and other music from around the world. As such have put together a new Glasgow residency called Highlife, with which we aim celebrate and push jackin’ music from parts of the world you’d least expect – from Kwaito, Chicago House and Disco to Cumbia, UK Funky, Afrobeat and Detroit techno. As you may be aware, we’re big fans of the Cómeme sound round these parts and Brian kindly put together a wicked introductory mix below. Check out his new Afroftures blog HERE.

    Brian D’Souza: ‘Cómeme records are putting out the freshest party music being made today. With Matias Aguayo at the helm and backed by Rebolledo, DJs Pareja, Diegors and more the sound draws on classic jackin’ house music, Italo disco, 80′s electro, UK Funky, Afro and Latin beats all primed for the dancefloor.’

    We managed to catch up with Etienne for a few questions;

    Tell us a bit about the mix.

    It’s just a mix of what I’m listening to at the moment! I love so much early electronic music. Very experimental in the late of 60’s (Mother Mallard), Psychedelic in the 70’s (Eroc), Dark in the 80’s (Severed Heads)… On this mix I try to make feel people dance…

    Carl Craig produced your debut album, how did that come about?

    It was an idea of Gilbert (the boss on my label Versatile) after he listened to the first track of my album he found a connection between my sound and what happened in Detroit in the 80’s, so asked Carl Craig if he wanted to mix it and after listening he accepted!

    Your liveshow is one of the most inspriational I’ve seen in a long while – like a sonic one-man-band, do you have any intentions to recruit further members? A drummer perhaps? Or keep things the way they are?

    I’ve got another band called ZOMBIE ZOMBIE with a drummer (Cosmic Neman) In a way it’s easier to make music alone, you can do what you want. I don’t yet feel the limits of my installation, so I keep playing like that…

    What’s in the pipeline with solo stuff?

    I’ve just released some remixes, but it’s now the moment to release the new album of ZOMBIE ZOMBIE… I’m still on tour…

    Can we expect anything from Zombie Zombie soon?

    An EP will be out in September with 5 covers of John Carpenter. It’s produce by Joakim and La Boca designed the cover.
