I really fell in love with this new series of city portraits on residentadvisor.net called “Real Scenes”; The first 3 episodes are from Bristol, Detroit and Berlin, and all 3 are quite awesome, very interesting footage, interviews, impressions, so definitely worth checking them out!
Have a look:
Episode 1: Bristol
Episode 2: Detroit
Episode 3: Berlin
Here’s a mix I did yesterday nite, playing some favorite tunes besides our upcoming release on Foul & Sunk, the Little “i” Ep by Fresh’n’Low (FASM002). Hope you enjoy it!
Found this amazing mix yesterday on substance.tv, and juyt thought I should post this one here; this is really one of the best Soulclap / W&L Mixes I’ve ever heard, I could listen to it over and over again… so enjoy it!!!
I just stumbled upon this cute little monster, the 8 Bit Rockit Synth… and, as I know how much work it is to just solder an existing kit or project, I pledge deep respect for someone who is willing to invent a new synth without having a company or sth. similar behind him. Matt Heinze just did this, and it actually sounds like fun!! There might still be some additional work to do, but I do really like the idea of starting his own company with this project just from scratch.
so check out the Rockit 8 Bit synth, there might be more to come soon…?!
More info about his project can be found here:
Just an update, for the records… the Studio is almost finished, still some cable work to do, and some DIY outboard to rack up;
The first step after putting carpet into my new room was building the essential acoustic treatments, the bass traps. I decided to do 2 big bass traps for the front corners, both about 2,10m high, 65 cm wide and 30 cm deep, filled with rockwool, that I wanted to wrap in thin foil, and cover the whole thing with fabric; also I wanted to build 3 small broadband absorbers, that I can stack on top of each other and put then near the sidewall of the listening position, about 20cm away from the wall. these absorbers are also filled with rockwool, 20cm deep, and covered with black fabric.
After having build these elements, I wanted to check the acoustics in my room first before building further elements. I know that these wont be enough for the size of the room, but rather than killing all dynamics in one step I decided to plan the next steps afterwards. So take a look at the first elements, and, again, sorry for the poor picture quality… I will take some better shots soon;
After searching for the right location for quite a while I finally found a decent room in the heart of Zurich to build my new studio; I plan to have a one room concept for recording and production, with possibilities to built a vocal booth, some space to hang out and play around with my instruments, and some room for storage;
The room is about 43 m2 big and has a good shape: it´s 10 x 4,2 meters, and the walls are not completely parallel, which should be good for the sound. the roof is about 2,40 m, towards the back it goes down to 2,20 m.
I will try to post the building process here in detail, with pictures, to give you a clue how it looks like and maybe get some tips from more experienced people, especially concerning the acoustic panels & treatment.
So here´s the empty room before I put the carpet in today (sorry for the bad picture, taken with my mobile); next steps are all the tables and racks, followed by the instruments, the mixer and the monitor system. I would be happy to recieve some input about how to treat the walls and corners; the roof is already covered with 5cm rockwool, which shouldn´t hurt;
One of the reasons I didn’t blog a lot the last few months has been the setup of our new music imprint, Foul & Sunk Music, which I run together with my buddy DJ Shaddy, and now, after several months of talking, waiting and planing we are proud to present the first 2 releases of our own new label:
The first one will be a beautiful 3-tracker, containing a great classic house tune by Nicholas plus an outstanding remix produced by Hauke Freer, one half of Retreat from Berlin. This one might be our summer favorite for 2011!!!
The second release on Foul & Sunk Music will be a re-release, a classic 4-tracker from Fresh & Low, the “Little “i” EP”, that originally came out on Westend Records back in 1997, but still sounds hot and crisp!
So, if you’re a DJ and would like to be added to our promotion list, just drop us a line: foulandsunk @ gmail.com. And in case you are producing hot house & disco music, and your sound could fit on our imprint, you are welcome to drop us your tunes on soundcloud or send us a mail…
EDIT: In the meantime we finished our new blog for the label, which you can find here:
So, if you step by, give us a “like” if you like 😉
