Let's talk about Total 6...and 'Albatros' and Fraximal and the dirty rumour surrounding 'Timecode' and those upcoming 20-minute Superpitcher remixes of Nathan Fake.

Omar (Omar), Friday, 5 August 2005 13:40 (fourteen years ago) link

And let's talk about the dirty Timecode truth...

Chewshabadoo (Chewshabadoo), Friday, 5 August 2005 13:44 (fourteen years ago) link

Can someone YSI the new Speicher please? Can't find it anywhere and I'm dead broke.

p delgado, Friday, 5 August 2005 13:49 (fourteen years ago) link

What are the dirty rumors and truths surrounding 'Timecode'?

(And what is The Matrix?)

jsoulja (jsoulja), Friday, 5 August 2005 13:57 (fourteen years ago) link

What's this and when: "those upcoming 20-minute Superpitcher remixes of Nathan Fake"?

matt2 (matt2), Friday, 5 August 2005 13:59 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah sorry, that was a lie. :) Okay, a pipe dream.

Omar (Omar), Friday, 5 August 2005 14:01 (fourteen years ago) link

Um, does that also mean that there are no dirty 'Timecode' rumors? And that you don't REALLY want to talk about Total 6, Fraximal, etc?

jsoulja (jsoulja), Friday, 5 August 2005 14:13 (fourteen years ago) link

Those are all true, although we're still waiting on that Timecode thingy.

Omar (Omar), Friday, 5 August 2005 14:18 (fourteen years ago) link

How long will Justus get away with it?

Michael F Gill (Michael F Gill), Friday, 5 August 2005 16:28 (fourteen years ago) link

We could also talk about the fact that Boston's Newbury Comics chain has been stocking some Kompakt releases...and...that they might just have Total 6 not only on its release date, but also (dare I say it? dare I eat a peach?) - on sale?!!? (Cf. Superpitcher's Today.)

Zimmer026 (Zimmer026), Friday, 5 August 2005 17:40 (fourteen years ago) link

Alright Mr. Gill- no joke- I've actually got the 'Timecode' 12" waiting for me right now in the mailroom at my work. Just arrived from Forced Exposure with some other stuff.

*I need to know*

Is there some magic dust on all of the 'Timecode' 12"s that makes you break down into some Otto's Irresistible Dance (oh shit! check that Old School reference!) type groove and fall madly in love with Justus or something?

Seriosly- now or never- I'm....afraid.

jsoulja (jsoulja), Friday, 5 August 2005 17:58 (fourteen years ago) link

Well whatever the rumours, "Krieg" is a badboy tune.

p delgado, Friday, 5 August 2005 18:05 (fourteen years ago) link

I don't suppose anyone could help me out by reposting yousendits of either the Mayer or Kohncke Baxenmixes?

Jerry the Nipper (Jerrynipper), Friday, 5 August 2005 20:35 (fourteen years ago) link

I quite like Vinegreta on the Fraximal album. Sounds old and new.

hector (hector), Friday, 5 August 2005 20:45 (fourteen years ago) link

There's a Koehncke mix?! SECONDED.

Here's the Mayer mix:

Mashup! Mashup!

jsoulja (jsoulja), Saturday, 6 August 2005 01:36 (fourteen years ago) link

"Albatros" from Speicher 031 is here.

Kornél Kovács (Kornél Kovács), Saturday, 6 August 2005 02:12 (fourteen years ago) link

oh wow, i like the original and justus' version pretty much equally! i can see why some folks might find it in bad taste, but i think he's carrying on a tradition that's existed in dance music for years.

tricky (disco stu), Saturday, 6 August 2005 02:48 (fourteen years ago) link

what is the original? the mp3 tag doesn't offer much information!!

s1ocki (slutsky), Saturday, 6 August 2005 03:01 (fourteen years ago) link

i don't know what it is, but the original is actually a cover of another song, the title of which is at the tip of my tongue. i can hear the chorus in my head including the backup singers, but i can't remember the artist. how annoying is that?

it's pretty cool how music can evolve over time...arguably kohncke's original was also a copy in bad taste so now what we have is a reproduction of a reproduction. kind of endemic in dance music ca. 2005.

tricky (disco stu), Saturday, 6 August 2005 03:17 (fourteen years ago) link

is at the tip of my tongue

I know the feeling. My guess: Hall & Oates?

I dunno. I don't find it that shameful since it happens all the time (Daft Punk, Felix da Housecat, supposedly M.A.N.D.Y. too). On the other hand I'll admit I always find it a bit disappointing at first when they rip the hook/punctum of a tune.

Omar (Omar), Saturday, 6 August 2005 08:11 (fourteen years ago) link

It's Ace, featuring Paul Carrack, a huge UK hit in 1975. (Carrack also played piano on the Smiths' 'Reel Around the Fountain' and was in Mike and the Mechanics, mind-bogglingly).

Jerry the Nipper (Jerrynipper), Saturday, 6 August 2005 08:33 (fourteen years ago) link

It's "How Long" by Lipps Inc. (of "funky town" fame).

jed_ (jed), Saturday, 6 August 2005 11:13 (fourteen years ago) link

whatever. this is what justus kohncke DOES. how about "lucienne" off of his first album? it uses "spasticus autisticus".

losoul using "billie jean"?

soul center?

vahid (vahid), Sunday, 7 August 2005 02:30 (fourteen years ago) link

losoul using "billie jean"?

or luomo & raz ohara...

it's not really an issue for me

s1ocki (slutsky), Sunday, 7 August 2005 03:14 (fourteen years ago) link

The only problem with the new vocal version is the lack of that burbling bass sound from the original (the bit that made "Timecode" one of a pair with "Heiden").

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Sunday, 7 August 2005 06:30 (fourteen years ago) link

Tim, that's not a new vocal version by Koehnke, it's a Lipps Inc. track from 1980 or so that keoenkhe has, ahem... appropriated?

jed_ (jed), Sunday, 7 August 2005 11:23 (fourteen years ago) link

A ha! I've totally misinterpreted the last few posts - thought this was Kohncke covering the Lipps Inc track... I'd been wondering what everyone was getting so worked up about!

(though stuffing up has at least allowed me to realise er objectively that my favourite part is what Kohncke actually brings to the table)

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Sunday, 7 August 2005 11:33 (fourteen years ago) link

although the Lipps Inc track is itself a cover of "how long has this been going on" by Paul Carrack (as mentioned above) - it's not really the Paul Carrack elements of the song that justus has used but the Lipps inc. ones.

xpost to myself

jed_ (jed), Sunday, 7 August 2005 11:36 (fourteen years ago) link

I believe How Long was written by Carrack, who then brought it to Ace, which was then covered by Lipps, Inc. which was then re-interpreted by Justus, which is now probably being reedited, (is there a timecode remix?!).

My head hurts from all this metasimulacra. Simulacrap, anyone?

david_day (dayvidday), Sunday, 7 August 2005 22:15 (fourteen years ago) link

I believe How Long was written by Carrack, who then brought it to Ace, which was then covered by Lipps, Inc. which was then re-interpreted by Justus, which is now probably being reedited, (is there a timecode remix?!)

strimonster has done a mash up of the Lipps Inc. and the Justus, i believe ;) or rather Timecode's superior backing with edited vocals from the older track.

jed_ (jed), Sunday, 7 August 2005 22:34 (fourteen years ago) link

I'll put the mashup I made on my next podcast at Stylus. Nothing fancy, just Timecode's superior backing with edited vocals from the older track.

Michael F Gill (Michael F Gill), Monday, 8 August 2005 01:32 (fourteen years ago) link

It appears Tuesday, August 23 is U.S. street date for Total 6. Certainly was hoping it'd be sooner than the first day back at school.

*sigh*

Zimmer026 (Zimmer026), Tuesday, 9 August 2005 19:12 (fourteen years ago) link

They already have it at Forced Exposure, so if you get lucky it will get to you before then.

hector (hector), Tuesday, 9 August 2005 19:27 (fourteen years ago) link

it's not that good. i much prefer elektronische musik interkontinental 4.

total 6 on my birthday. this is perfect.

jerginsk (jergins), Tuesday, 9 August 2005 19:42 (fourteen years ago) link

Forced Exposure has the double vinyl, but no sign of the double-CD I'm after. At least not yet. I was listening to Elektronische Musik Interkontinental 4 in the car just this afternoon and thinking, "I need to listen to this more. More!" (And 3, too.)

Zimmer026 (Zimmer026), Wednesday, 10 August 2005 01:53 (fourteen years ago) link

jed - my edit just uses the lipps inc. version.

ah i thought it was a timecode/lipps inc mixy thing. *clueless*. cheers.

jed_ (jed), Wednesday, 10 August 2005 17:53 (fourteen years ago) link

the only thing i don't like about elektronische musik interkontinental 4 is that "dinamo" trumps everything else on it.

tricky (disco stu), Wednesday, 10 August 2005 17:59 (fourteen years ago) link

nice edit, twitch - you took out all of the crap parts. :) do you play it out?

i do.

Really digging the way schmaltzy, souvenir-snowglobe chintziness rubs up against classical/techno austerity; fits Kompakt to a tee.

New Hippie Dance 12" available in limited amounts through Kompakt.fm. It sounds like Superpitcher and Rebolledo under a new guise.. The Twins.. trippy disco in the Kompakt style.

Reminicising with a friend about the Kompakt DJs he used to get playing Brighton, of which Tobias Thomas was the first almost ten years ago has prompted me to dig out his Smallville mix, and it is completely reminding me what I loved about the sound they had around then. It is so nice to hear a commercially released mix which is obviously a live affair, with mixing that at times struggles to stay on beat, but provides extra tension because of that.

Chewshabadoo, Sunday, 22 September 2013 09:37 (six years ago) link

What did/do you make of his Please Please Please mix? Some atop top stuff on there IMO.

the Shearer of simulated snowsex etc. (Dwight Yorke), Sunday, 22 September 2013 13:54 (six years ago) link

I emailed Kompakt to say that if they didn't release a Tobias Thomas mix this year, their 20th anniversary celebrations had no credibility.

Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ (brimstead), Thursday, 9 January 2014 03:33 (five years ago) link

Cologne Tape's Render was the first release on the Magazine label. It sounds pretty serious / traditional Kraut rock to my ears, a nice EP. My favourite track is 'Render 4' which reminds me of Ada's Forty Winks.

doesn't everything eventually get turned into a Total comp or whatever?

scott seward, Monday, 13 June 2016 20:17 (three years ago) link

i'm too old to start buying new 12 inches. i'd never listen to them. or i'd listen to them once.

scott seward, Monday, 13 June 2016 20:18 (three years ago) link

CD comps kinda perfect for my active lifestyle.

scott seward, Monday, 13 June 2016 20:19 (three years ago) link

i'd say half or less ends up on Total comps (which contain mucho exclusive tracks.. so yeah might as well stick with CDs)

at least buy this, you need the superpitcher remix

i really enjoyed the hunter_game album.

There's a Michael Mayer collaboration album coming out on XL shortly

Michael F Gill, Saturday, 17 September 2016 20:37 (three years ago) link

Yeah, had seen an email from !K7 about that. Features collaborations on every track including Roman Flugel, Prins Thomas, Barnt and one each from Hot Chip and Friendly Fires.

Will probably (re)start with Total 16 and see where that sends me.

Mind you, I'm also tempted to make a home made edition of that RSD Superpitcher compilation, too.

djh, Saturday, 17 September 2016 21:05 (three years ago) link

The Mayer album is very mixed; each track stands up or falls over based on who the collaborator is.

Don Van Gorp, midwest regional VP, marketing (誤訳侮辱), Saturday, 17 September 2016 21:53 (three years ago) link

Has anyone heard TOTAL 16 yet? It's on Spotify I was listening to it yesterday and there wasn't anything that really caught my attention but there wasn't anything that I found annoying. It sounded pretty good and cohesive to my ears... will need to give it more listens to see what sticks but at first listen it might be one of their better years.

thankfully I did not read the RA review of the new Gui Boratto album before I heard it.
I ordered it to make an amazon order over the requirements for free delivery.
turns out that the album is crap according to RA.
I beg to differ.
yeah, it's not cool, nor cutting edge.
it is however, a very enjoyable electronica album.
in fact, I have decided to listen to this as a synthwave album.
there are a lot of sonic crossovers in the use of sounds and vocals, which is probably why I am enjoying it so much.

mark e, Thursday, 16 August 2018 20:28 (one year ago) link

It's perfectly fine. Just like the John Tejada album which RA gave an average review to.
