  1. i was a bidder when this package was first announced, i didn't receive anything so far. grant said on facebook in february that it would ship "sometime in march" however.
  2. Here in my country you don't get randomly shot at by the police (police are carrying guns openly) so you don't need a weapon to defend yourself in the first place. I was in china several times, police does not have any guns at all, only the army is allowed to have weapons. Also there's death penalty if you own a gun illegally (which is always the case if you are not a member of the army), which prevents people from selling guns via black market. Since they introduced these laws, heavy criminality is on a significant decline, as can't rob a bank with a knife. Also you would need some serious commitment to kill someone with a knife or a club while pulling a trigger is kind of easy. To sum up my experience regarding the places i lived/visited: - Germany: Police has firearms, doesn't use it, nobody cares about the police in the street, also there is way too few police on the street. This is why bigger cities like Berlin are really dangerous, as no one will help you (you'll get stabbed) and there's never police around. - USA: Everyone seems to be afraid of the police, the first thing my coworkers told me when i arrived in california is how i should behave if i get pulled over, so that i won't get shot. Completely insane imho, that's just completely fucked up. - China: Police has no firearms at all, just small rubber clubs. They are trained how to disarm someone with a knife. There's more police in the streets than in germany. However, no one cares about police. Also, society is different, i actually witnessed a mentally ill person stabbing thin air with a knife in central Lanzhou. Folk circled him, insulted him and shouted for policemen, who arrived after couple of minutes. They just disarmed him and put him in a police car and drove away.
  3. great, now the group is archived. i miss the old days of colundi when you could actually purchase some really good music as physical releases instead of reading mystical gibberish in a facebook group.
  4. i won't translate the interview, as i would have to transcribe it first. But here's the article that was attached to it (won't be a very good translation, but whatever): He is one of the most important techno-artists in the world: After 17 years W. Voigt will once more release an album of his project "GAS". The album title "NARKOPOP" is a manifesto, the musician states. Nearly two decades have passed since the Cologne-based artitst W. Voigt has released his last GAS-album. The new album "NARKOPOP", which will hit the streets in april, aims to continue the classic aesthetic of GAS containing of symphonic extent and subtle variations, as the artist stated on friday in Deutschlandradio Kultur (culture radio for the intellectual). The album title is a manifesto, Voigt eludicates. "If you know about the project "GAS", it's obvious, that is very much related to gloomy-hypnotic soundscapes, to darkness (he uses the english word) and also to very clustered and very dense soundscapes (he uses the english word)." Voigt has heavily influenced the world of electronic music in the 90s like only few others did. "GAS" protrudes from his many other projects . It's a gloomy sounding work of art based on heavily condensed snippets of classical music. The artist elaborates how clichés of german myths, the german forest and the romanticism form brothers grimm to Novalis have played an "associative role". The fact that he is fascinated with the soughing beeches and limetrees stems from his childhood, in which he spent long periods of time in the forest together with his family. But also, "artist-escapism" is important: "My Inspiration, to seek salvation in the vastness of nature, to find inspiration, freedom and ecstasy in a double sense: on the one hand, the rustling of the forest, and on the other hand also the cliché of getting lost, in the vastness and deepness of nature." The last bit revolves around his las "Rückverzauberung" performance and not about GAS, so i won't give a translation.
  5. i have to admit i still consider 80 GBP an insane prize for 5 cassettes, considering that you get absolutely no information on the contents, the release schedule....i mean buying the single colundi 6 cassette including postage was cheaper than buying these 5 cassettes already considering the discount for buying all of them. also why do you have to e-mail them first to receive price information? i guess i'll have to pass on these...as much as i love dave monolith.
  6. jimmy edgar and jets (jimmy edgar + machinedrum) are still killing it, but imo recent machinedrum plus most of the techy stuff jimmy edgar releases on his own label feels lackluster to their older stuff. some examples for very recent tracks by jimmy edgar or jets, that, in my opinion, are killing it:
  7. well, this is why a bidding system is a bit unfair...if they wan't more money they should probably have a set amount plus anything you are willing to give on top. this way they could assure that the crazy millionaire super-fan pays them a bazillion dollar for a sd-card, while the mere mortals know how many days they have to starve to gain the networth needed to make a purchase.
  8. lol i'm in germany and the shipping cost would be still 16,48 EUR. surely there has to be a cheaper way to ship a record and a t-shirt from jena to anywhere else in germany.
  9. exactly this. i don't get it...at least jimmy edgar stopped producing exclusively club tech tracks and got back to putting out these sexy funkey vibes that made him big. but machinedrum...vapor city was already a step down from room(s), while still good, but now this is just utter trash imo.
  10. i'm very happy with this ep, as cheetaht7teac was my favourite track from the sc dump and is prominently featured on this release. also, i like the other tracks, some nice acid-y quirkyness. i'm having way more fun with this than with CCAI2 or the MARCHROMT EP.
  11. I'm still waiting for it...can't wait to give the vinyl a spin.
  12. structures form silence & its tribute album unfortunately the original album was removed from youtube recently...however here's the (very good) tribute: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4n_sb6Fd2B8
  13. as my ancestors are from hungary, i listen to a lot of traditional hungarian music. big shoutout to marta sebestyen, she captures the traditional music so well using modern techniques, also she has a terrific voice. <3 here's some more stuff with her also, you should consider watching this movie if u are into eastern european music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUz9NgtgneM some more different stuff:
