DJ TLR [of Crème Organization] has produced a huge mix to celebrate the 20 years of BUNKER RECORDS, the underground electronic Netherlands based Label. Representing a kind of rebellion in the scene, BUNKER RECORDS is a label producing with no compromise, following the “Do it yourself” motto. This imprint is focused on the evil aspect of visual & music (Electro Acid Techno Industrial) giving them an infamous, dark and raw identity that they assume & feel as an experience to reach a kind of Freedom (BTW, it’s always good to read again the biography of this label via Discogs website in order to understand who they started, i mean that for those producers who are always crying about make money with music). The large BUNKER RECORDS’ catalog can be approach in such many ways therefore we are happy to see GUY TAVARES the grand poobah of the label commissioned this mix to the talented TLR, his selection is so fine! After 20 years of activism, of course they are totally deserved to be mentioned as an EPIC label. We guess it was/is not easy for them to survive day-by-day but for now don’t think about the future next years, just enjoy this moment, mad respect :

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.
