Holy Fuck Dj set in Amsterdam was a feast to my ears, so much class, more and more i prefer to listen to non Dj's but to guys with awesome taste and music collections.
Even before they started i had a very good idea of what to expect and i loved it, psychedelic electronic music, groovy heavy basses, disco and other classics on the mix, lots of cool stuff and if im not mistaken because i was a bit pissed, Emperor Machine, Chicken Lips, Junior Boys, Woolfy VS Projections etc... ... The guy that played after Holy Fuck, gimme a brake dude, after a music feast like that house music !!!!!! My advice is gardening, car washing or fishing.
Trouw is a awesome industrial building that is perfect for epic photography and i would like to spend there one afternoon taking pictures.

Great animated music video for Dan Mangan "Road Regrets" Produced at Blatant Studios, Vancouver.

One of my favorite singer/songwriters Nina Nastasia has a new album in the pipeline, "Oulaster" is due for release in early June on Fat Cat.

The first single is called Cry Cry Baby and there is a great live acoustic recording on Nina's own appartment in New York.

Wonderful work of New York Photografer Aaron McElroy.

" In my work I toy with the thinnest lines set between reality and a sense of the unreal. Through to the admixture, I further adjust to a reality punctured, a more surreal placement of life, lying just beneath a surface. Scenes in their randomness, the moments underneath--the subject is one not detracting from reality, but only serving to punctuate the delineation away from reality, towards the essence. " Aaron McElroy

For a few months already i was thinking if i had lost the interest in drone music or if there are less records being produced, is really difficult for me to explain technically what is a drone and even more difficult is to explain in words what makes a excellent drone record. I started listening to this genre with William Basinsky, Belong, Stars of the Lid, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Tim Hecker and Dead Texan so i based my assumptions based on what i heard on these wonderful records.

This week i received an email from Kyle Bobby Dunn a minimalist composer from New York and after listening to what he sent me i was stunned and i recommend it for anyone that is into Ambient, Experimental, Classic Contemporaneous music. Kyle Bobby Dunn - A Young Person's Guide To is released by Low Point
