New Aphex Twin Album on the way?

image

This is what the people in London saw two days ago, when they looked at the sky…

A Green Blimp with the Aphex Twin Logo on it was recently spotted over London.

On the other side you can see a writing saying “2014” with the 0 being replaced by the Logo

image

Meanwhile outside of Music Hall in New York this “Grafitti” was discovered.

image

Several People claim to have seen Logos like that appearing in the last days, but many also say it’s all a hoax.

Whatever it is, I think we can all agree that a new Aphex Twin Album would be the shit!

And if you think about it, that’s exactly how you’d expect Richard to announce a new Album.

Somebody even said the album would be released on the 19th of october 2014. But the sources of this statement aren’t very trustworthy.

Well we’ll just all hope the best, and I will try to keep you updated.

Goldie and Björk once Dated, but then broke up in 1996. In this time Goldie made a remix of Björks “Isobel”                                
It also is believed, that Björks “5 Years” that was released on Homogenic, is actually dedicated to Goldie himself.
Sadly these are the only times they (kind of) collaborated…

Caustic Window LP - Aphex Twin's lost Album

The Legend is finally back… kind of.

A crowdfunding campaign organized by Aphex Twin himself and an original buyer of the 1994 (4 copies big) release “Caustic Window LP” , finally brings us this long lost treasure.

And after listening to the first track myself all i can ask is… How could this be in private hands for all these years without going public???

Ranking: Songs that make you happy when you’re down

10. Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderfull World

A bit of an oldie but still it makes you happy as shit ;)

9. Paolo Nutini - New Shoes

The story is about somebody buying new shoes. Why does that make you happy? I DON’T EVEN KNOW…BUT IT DOES!

8. Pharrel Williams - Happy

The Title says it all! The song’s about being happy and that’s also what it does make you!

7.Bob Marley - Mr. Brown

It’s just this nonsense story about a prankster, named Mr. Brown wich makes you for some reason forget your sorrows.

6. Jamiroquai - (Don’t) Give Hate a Chance

This Song just has this “we will change everything to peace and Love” - Hippie feeling pressed on top of it! You can’t be sad while listening to it!

5. James Brown - I Feel Good

Just read the title and you know why the song makes you feel good ;)

4. Frankie Knuckles - Move Your Body

The Godfather of House with the most motivating House Track ever!

3. The Moog Cookbook - Black Hole Sun

I don’t know why, but it feels by far more happy than the original by Soundgarden!

2. The prodigy - Charley (Alley Cat remix)

This track makes you feel like you’re at a rave in the 90’s. And as we all know… nobody was sad in the 90’s ;) also it makes you dance if you feel like it or not!

1. Gorillaz feat. Mos Def and Hypnotic Brass Ensamble - Sweepstakes

So i know the lyrics are about gambling… But Mos Def just repeats the following sentence over and over again: “You’re a Winner” and even if it’s not meant that way it just makes you feel good in some way!

Spun back: Spacehall in Berlin

The Spacehall in Berlin is a very special place for all Vinyl-lovers!

image

It focuses especially on Electronic-music but there still is a little Hip-Hop soul and reaggae to it! It persists of 3 big rooms or “Areas” as you might say.

Every “Area” has it’s own style of Music stored in it, wich makes it easy to get what you’re searching for.

.

First Area -  Merchandise, Box sets & Soul, Jazz, Reaggae, etc…

image

The first area is the smallest of all three. It contains a lot of Merchandise like bags, mugs, posters, shirts and other cool stuff. Also there are some Vinyl-Box sets.

Compared to the other rooms, the Vinyl collection in here is small. But there’s still a lot to dig through. The Genres consist of Soul, Funk, Reaggae, Dub, Jazz, etc….

The store all-in-all is not a place for fans of those namend genres, But it still is worth taking a look in the first room!

.

Second Area - Drum and Bass, Dubstep, IDM, Indie, Rock, Metal,….

image

In my opinion the most beautiful Area of the record-store. It’s designed in a nice twilight-forest style Making it not always easy to read some labels, But the feeling of shopping for Vinyls in a twilight-forest is just too great!

First of… if you’re a drum and bass/jungle fan, it is your duty to visit this shop! 3 and a half displays of DnB/Jungle/Oldskool/Breakbeat happily await you! I personally spent 4 and a half hours in this record shop digging through DnB and only made 1/3 of it all.

Other Genres in this room include a not too shamefull collection of dubstep and IDM

Also there are displays filled with Metal, Rock, Krautrock, and a lot of Indie music. Sadly i can’t say much about those Genres as i don’t know shit about them :)

.

Third Area - Modern EDM and all kinds of Techno

image

This is where all real Techno-freaks and Club-Dj’s meet.

A Big room full of all kinds of Modern EDM you’ve never even heard of. Desinged in a nice moody Lounge-style it even has a couch to sit on.

It has pretty much everything from IDM to Gabber. Wich means: There is a shit-ton of EDM in that room.

If you’re a Dj still playing vinyl (if you do… Big Ups to you sir!) This is where you need to come. If there’s a new vinyl realease in the techno world… Here’s where you can find what you’re looking for! On top of all that this room has more than five Record Players on wich you can listen to the vinyl and maybe even scratch a little

.

All in all i can say that this is the Record store for all the Electronic-music junkies out there. And for those who like the sound of real instruments… The first area is worth a visit all by itself! It’s all a bit expensive but i guess that’s vinyl… ;)

So if you’re in Berlin and somewhen in you’re life touched a record and liked it… Don’t hesitate to come here.

.
