JUKE TRAX RECORDS - Ghetto House - Juke - Ghetto Tek - Jit

Currently better known by the Bass heads for his sounds released under his alias OKTORED, the Detroit based producer COCKY BALBOA is back on the emblematic JUKE TRAX label with a new EP entitled « Jit Town Get Down ». The two first tunes of this project are very close to the 90’s vibes of Ghetto Tek productions when the two other tunes opening smartly on new horizons : mixing the old pattern with new genres of bass music such as the Moombahton. The result is quite catchy & groovy therefore very danceable! Every good things that you can expect from the Ghetto Bass music is in this EP. Recommended!

GALAXIANDosing the population (Clip)


The craziest producer GALAXIAN is back for our pure pleasure with a new E.P entiled ‘Vanguard’ released this summer during the UK riots… The Glasgow based producer is quite underrated however he’s probably the most unique artist of this new decade from the straight electro scene. Forget all the classic ageing sound patterns and forget also his latest great releases; GALAXIAN is still searching to explore some new depth electronic dimensions never discovered before as much as possible. The 4 tracks of this E.P released on NAPALM ENNEMA RECORDS are committed, noisy, dystopian, destructured and of course trippy. The production isn’t too cleaned in order to keep the dynamic of the roughly brainstorm. The GALAXIAN force is still to made his own shit according to his own rebel thoughts with no compromise, …none compromise! With the “Vanguard” E.P he follows the “desintegration of the social fabric” that he started for his debut album. To get this side, a submersion into his live sets are recommended because that’s the best place where his sounds make perfect sense.

The GALAXIAN’s original signature will probably make him the underground electronic producer that you will easily remind in the next years between all the “empty” producers cloning the pioneers… Please give all your attention to the “Vanguard” E.P and all the upcoming releases of this talented producer. Highly Recommended!

and now a break with “CHIC-A-GO-GO” Show starring… :

New release on TRANSIENT FORCE : « Repent » Album by GALAXIAN

Posted by on 12/14/2010 | Category : Album-EP Reviews / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

A couple of weeks ago on the hot TRANSIENT FORCE label, GALAXIAN [UK] has released his heavy & illest album entitled “REPENT”. This album features 9 UFO electronic tunes. Beyond the boring expermiental electro and the remakes of classic electro bass, “REPENT” represents an other level of electro/techno music coming from the parallel universe where GALAXIAN is flying. Each tunes are well produced without loose the raw aspect of beat, strange isn’t?…Brillant! The sound is unique, trippy, broken and against odds it’s pretty groovy! Due to his original level of music production, GALAXIAN had to present his official apologies to the aliens and now it’s done with the release of the “REPENT” album.

Some tracks to highlight my words :

TRON LEGACY! [SHIFT+DELETE]

Posted by on 12/09/2010 | Category : Pamphlets / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

The new TRON LEGACY trailer can be seen almost everywhere now. I got a few words I need to share with you about this movie. If we’re talking strictly about the incredible motorcycles battles scene, I agree that the TRON LEGACY might better but this new wannabe remake revolution is a true insult to the original classic TRON (1982) and what this movie represented for the post future culture.
Maybe I’m wrong for judging before watching the actual movie but I can suggest 98 reasons to skip this sequel movie. I’m not closed-minded about the evolution concept and about remaining up-to-date but I just prefer the timeless truth. I’m truly deep into CYBERPUNK films and I just dont like when this culture is not well respected! Consequently, I can’t understand how a human can pretend to make a better remake than the original TRON… Was he listening to the BLACK EYES PISS while makin it? (Ouch… better that stronger it was during the unconvinced third album of DAFT PUNK’s ghosts producers who have also composed the film score…) And why the first producer STEVEN LISBERGER and some old actors even contributed? Money don’t redeem oneself. The first film had cost roughly 17 millions dollars.. and was supposed to stay a classic with its own toughts and a fresh old school flavor! The second movie has cost 330 millions!… And adults might not retain a lot about this one. (of course, it will be better than those 2009 shitty “V” serie remakes… Make-up remover, please! Just another original and genious creator who had hallucinated…)
The only positive way to remake TRON would be to watch the first edition with interactive 3D glasses (But finally it won’t be the first to release it in 3D… Might because CAMERON created the legacy effects…)
The second point is mostly to remind the kids which movie is the “bionic” mother of MATRIX. Some people said technology effect is better than ever: more clean, more dark, more realistic..

One of my point is the first TRON was made in 1980 (relased in 1982), the vectorial design came out like a real art evolution.
They did all those graphics with the basic tools of the past (again we were in 1980). The technology restriction created the style. (It was the first film with full digital scene.) In fact, I need to remind that the computer mouse was officially released in 1983 (with the first APPLE LISA)… Yes, they did all the effects whith scripts with the help of one ONLY the keyboard!!!! That’s a reason why the design was so geometrical, it really was a true performance. We need to pay hommage to the old (sadly) underestimate executive designers who contributed to the original TRON. All my respect goes to the creative designer, the real mast of SCI FI illustrators : SYD MEAD, MOEBIUS, PETER LOYD who created a poetic digital environment and an abstract aesthetic very different about the reality of impulsive 80′s life.
This thoughtfull scenario and this amazing film had a real sense in this time, those oldschool designs are still an inspiration for many artists today. Nowadays, we can see the 8 Bit and basic vector design reminiscing everywhere, it’s very nostalgic. We can also mention the last advancements in video games: it’s just becoming to real, we can hardly see the virtual aspect anymore. So, my question is: How this remake can pretend to represent the difference between those two environmentals since we can hardly distinguish the differences between the over-over retouching 00′s reality and the more realistic digital world?
Even worse, How a film release in 2010′s can pretend to warning us about the dangers of too computer intelligence and computer control when those machines are still in activity since 1983? (Date of the first popular computer and the access to internet)…
It’s seems too late, don’t they know that we’re attacked everyday by GOOGLE itself? Reboot, let’s just say that TRON LEGACY looks like a bad child with no future.

In fact, sad to say that but it seems like the SCI FI movies era is over, now their warnings about machine post-attacks have just become hasbeen! In 2010′s, the only interesting films discussing about post-future is “DYSTOPIA”. This approach is much more about remake someone life on the rest livable world after a major damage (nature / energy / technology / human…). So we can accept a MAD MAX 4 but we want films with new raw subject up to date…(considered by scientists and sociologues not like the puritan acknowledged AVATAR movie)
Please don’t touch and remake anymore to the SCI FI classics. Keep V, TRON, FANTOMAS! & co in theirs times…You can re watch the past but we had to make the present like the future will be.
