If You Wannabe Prime Minister

cameronDerweil im (noch…) Vereinigten Königreich: „When it comes to the next leader of the Conservative party, these politicians will „tell you what I want, what I really, really want“. (Ja, das Video ist Prä-Brexit, passt aber trotzdem. Und damit lasse ich das Thema dann auch vorerst mal ruhen. Versprochen.)

Post-Punk New Wave Superhelden Mashup


Butcher Billy hat ein paar Post-Punk-Stars meiner Teenagerzeit mit Superhelden gemasht. Hätte ich eigentlich gestern bringen müssen, weil mittwochs bei uns im Club immer Post-Punk & Wave war – Kopf nach unten, drei Schritte vor, drei zurück, ihr wisst schon. (via Wil Wheaton)

What makes a pop culture icon? Would it be the effect of their contribution to a cultural movement? Is it the way they impact the time and the generation they are targeting? Or just how their exposure constitutes a defining characteristic of a given society or era? As a child of the 80’s I was heavily influenced by everything from saturday morning cartoons on TV to the music coming from the radio. Ian Curtis or Johnny Rotten are as iconic to me as Superman or Batman. Real people or imaginary characters, the incorruptible ideals of perfect superheroes or the human flaws and desires sometimes so desperately depicted in song lyrics – all of those influences affect us to the point of defining our character and personality, career paths and life choices. The references we are exposed and specifically the ones we choose to absorb make us who we are.

Russendisko Galore: DJ Scientist – „Solid Soviet Steel Radio“ & Mr. And-7 – „Sovietablizm“

Hier zwei Mixe mit Sounds und Rare-Grooves aus der ehemaligen Sowjetunion, die am Wochenende bei mir rauf und runter liefen: „Solid Soviet Steel Radio“ von DJ Scientist (Facebook) aus Berlin, zusammengestellt für die Sold Steel Radio Show.

On Solid Steel, we like to go deep and as part of our celebrations in Hour 2, we welcome DJ Scientist with Solid Soviet Steel Radio (SSSR), a special guest mix that solely features music from the former Soviet Union. The dedicated record collector, DJ and Equinox record label owner from Berlin managed to unearth and put together an extensive and fascinating selection of tracks from countries like the Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldavia, Russia and more, resulting in a unique musical adventure. The mix starts with a deep and slow psych part, coming up with more funk-laden Soviet grooves and killer instrumental breaks. Many of these groups managed to create their own kind of sound, mixing western styles like Jazz, Funk and Rock with traditional music from their own countries.

The Quick Brown Fox presents: The Mixing Bowl – 80’s Edition


The Quick Brown Fox, von dem die Beastie Boys Mixtapes (Teil 1 & 2) mit Jazz und Soul kommen, hat mit „The Mixing Bowl – 80′s Edition“ einen neuen Mix am Start. Diesmal hat er Hip-Hop-Artists und Pop-Klassiker aus den 80ern gemasht. Kommt zwar nicht an seine Beastie Boys Mixe ran, macht aber trotzdem Spaß.
