  1. Brilliant second collaborative release from Geyzel & Pflum, inventive peak time electro-breaks business. Highly recommended.
  2. mainly wanted to post this live set: because this is a general purpose thread i should post some info. discogs bandcamp some watmm threads: Nightvision EP [2020] City of Thieves EP [2019] Karen Lust - Bergensbanen [2015] some notable projects: Sleep Concert - "on april 1st 2016 danish sound artist karsten pflum and the library of herlev invited a limited audience into nine hours of otherwordly ambient soundscapes in a darkened environment" Max Maxell - Normal Bias - "All sound was recorded directly onto cassette tape, with no additional editing. 31 tracks (184 minutes of music) and a 55 page PDF file" he is a great dane (they're all great)
  3. Available now on Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, etc. https://karstenpflum.bandcamp.com/album/normal-bias MAX MAXELL is a creative collaboration between Karsten Pflum and Michael Shiøler Tingsgård. NORMAL BIAS is an odd lesson in style and sketching. It is an aesthetic joint venture displaying a body of songs and drawings, built in an everyday mindset. The works are reflections of mundane input processing. Preparing gizmos and calibrating behaviour. Night after night, like therapy, looking through the stars, and dreaming about recurring places, animals and objects. A sedated dystopian cosmos - anno the Christmas of 2019. Michael Tingsgård is a Danish visual artist and cartoonist from Copenhagen. Karsten Pflum is a Danish electronic musician and producer, living in Berlin. All sound was recorded directly onto cassette tape, with no additional editing. 31 tracks (184 minutes of music) and a 55 page PDF file. All made between 2017 and 2019.
  4. Artist : Ariadne's Labyrinth Title: Twisted Up & Turned Around Label: Touched Music Cat no: TM54 Artwork:GridPattern Format:CD/Digital Country: U.K. Style: IDM/Electronica Release Date October 27th For those readers & listeners who live in caves or were otherwise disposed this last year, 'Twists & Turns' by Ariadne's Labyrinth was simply one of the best releases that Touched have ever had the pleasure of being involved with and putting out there. If ever an album was deserving of praise then that was it. And now we can pleasure ourselves (and yourselves) once again as a bevy of talented artists pounce on the opportunity to remix and rework the fantastic pieces contained therein. Having had the honour of previewing it I'm more than confident to say it's better that most things that other online outlets have attempted to peddle to me. For those familiar with the release, I am sure that you would agree with me that on audition it would be pretty hard to find faults and even harder to suggest improvements (as if it needed any). But now we can marvel in what others have made of the stems and it's a jolly trip into the styles of others that always manages to encapsulate what was great about Twists & Turns. Helpfully, the order of tracks on 'Twisted Up And Turned Around' follows that of its parent release so it's really nice to just interweave the originals and see their progression through the ears of the featured contributors. And that's what I'm going to do here as they really do deserve to be covered. The opener 'Sound City', thoughtfully treated by Keiss & bringing his experience of two separate Touched Music releases to the plate, concentrates on the airy quality of the track with beautiful chord progressions. Veteran Boxcutter applies his own signature sound and lets us wobble and bounce our way through things - there's definite attitude here. Azrak industrialises 'End Aria' making it full & pumping with a helping of Amen Break thrown in for good measure & Macheen Boi gives us his own self-titled 'bastardisation' but in my eyes it's more of a legitimisation by royal decree - welcome to the family. The distinctive Shepard-like ever-rising tones of 'Griffo's Dream' are treated with respect by both Klaus Wankderlick & Randomoidz and also ADJ - the former producing something reminiscent of Hybrid's more epic pieces and the latter slows the pace down with a more electro interpretation. When I first heard 'Tiny Car' I was immediately thrown back to Rephlex days and the always- pleasurable playings of the Braindance compilation. I didn't realise it could get any more authentic but somehow Karsten Pflum manages to do it with a real analogue vibe peppered with vibrato and squelch. Iceland's Murya returns to Touched with his interpretation with one big in-your-face soundscape. You can pretty much taste the Northern Lights in your mouth. One of my personal favourites from the original, 'Patternicity' always got me with its rolling pace, dramatically executed without being pretentious. It warms my heart that none of the original charm has been lost, with Emma Catnip's remix going straight on repeat, making my shoulders move involuntarily like some kind of music attack. Monoform & Pat Hime also rework the track, the former giving a whole new spin to it with a more relaxed rhythm structure that allows the melody to take centre stage, and the latter using the source material in some truly interesting ways to produce a completely new reconstruction. There's even an alternate remix by Ariadne's Labyrinth which is a nice touch and just demonstrates the infinite possibilities there are when producing this kind of music. From the sound of it 'Omnisomething' must have provided some great stems, with a bold melody and forceful movement through the piece. Recue builds these up to an epic finale in his track, just wait for it. Please dance interpretively to this one and send me the videos. I bet you look like a Chris Cunningham piece. Andrew Course steps in after and manages to make everything loose & sleazy, you can click your fingers to this one and it's rather seductive with an Ochre-like quality. I hadn't heard of Bovaflux before this but I'm glad I have now as his remix of 'Looking For Raindrops' has great arpeggios accenting the original track making for a really fun ride. The ending is positively robotic too. If your arm hairs don't stand up for this one then there's something wrong with you. Juan Nutkins (yes, I had to double-take too) follows and makes it all techno - it's a pumping end to a set, a late-night remedy for all the lagging ravers. This would definitely make them cancel their Ubers. Exm rears his head again and makes things chaotic as per usual, reworking 'Jim's Secret Portal' with an always-welcome eye-opening display of uniqueness from Holland. Milleu almost makes it sound as if Global Goon are in the house by completely restructuring things and making things very relaxed. Fizzarum breaks up the relentless pounding of 'Big Up Fussy' by keeping the pounding but very much deconstructing the beats and melodies with a skilful use of gates and other effects. It's very different and one that's sure to grow on you. I love Generate and always look forward to what he's going to do next - and 'Braindrops' is no different. I'm absolutely loving the rhythms both subtle & not so subtle, it's wonderfully mixed. Another big name comes in the form of D'Arcangelo, with a big piece. It takes all the big bits and makes them even bigger. But the treatment doesn't stop there - in what is one of my personal highlights of the album, Blackpool's brightest light Chevron ups the rave-factor to about a million. Oh Chevvers, I'd berate you but I'd only feel bad about it. Being a long-time fan since the days of Wrong Music I happily welcome this aptly-name hyped up remix into my living room. Better known as The Teknoist, Fyrehammer knocks 'Nola's Salon' off the shelf and glues it back together with breaks and beats all over the place. It's another fun-filled pumpfest. And back once again, Plaid's Ed & Andy deliver once more in what is actually quite an interesting track, darker than what you'd expect and a real departure but of course stunning and more than welcome. The original Outro track gave us a secret track, but there's no secrets here in what's given to us by Randomoidz with his second contribution to the album - it's playful, long & heavy. Finally, Carbinax ends the evening's proceedings by really playing on the strengths of the violin giving a real sense of closure. Available on both physical release and as a digital download, proceeds will once again be forwarded to Macmillan Cancer Support. You'd be silly to miss out on this one.

  5. Artist : Karsten Pflum Title: Love Canticles Label: Touched Music Cat no: TM37 Format: CD/Digital Country: U.K. Artwork: Hagar Faibish Style: IDM/Electronica Release Date Oct 24th Nov 2017 It's hard not to be biased when you get to listen to artists that you know and love but there's a reason you love them and this only adds fuel to the fire. Hot on the heels of the recent release from 'Ariande's Labyrinth', comes an offering from one of Touched Music's favorite artists, Karsten Pflum. 'Love Canticles' is a solid collection of squelch, rattle and drop - guaranteed to please our followers and make your feet tap. Kicking off with a dissonance that plays with your expectations of melody, the whole thing is solidified with a strong mix of conventional and broken rhythms. There are things you can't escape, notably the ethereal quality and a definite analogue feel that could easily be mistaken as Cornish in origin. Don't let this fool you however, this is the best of Danish through and through, although the keen- eared amongst you will hear the cat escaping the bag. Other nice touches include a peppering of vocoder, robotically enhancing certain tracks that already felt mechanical and industrious. Technical precision marks many of the tracks, 'I Am Ice' being a perfect example with ambience and crisp sounds aplenty, living up to its name. Not being satisfied with throwing a well-styled reworking into the mix to finish off the release, much- loved UK producer Ochre steps up and has offered his mastering & remixing skills to polish this great album. They're welcome bonuses that add to the already- delightful experience. Ochre's not the only remixer here, with contributions from Isan (Morr Music) & Humanoid (Aka Brain Dougans - One Half Of The Future Sound Of London) in the final stretch, the change is noticeable but well within the bounds of what Pflum has set out to do. All in all this is a spacious & thoughtful piece of work that carries on Karsten Pflum's tradition of style melding and refusing to sit in one box. It's great to know he's not going anywhere soon and even better to have him on the Touched roster. Support Touched - Music for Macmillan Cancer Support and get your copy from the 24th
  6. Karsten Pflum is going to release his 7th album this month! It's sounding really good: https://mailorder.ant-zen.com/product/id/2622 I think Rob Clouth and Kettel are releasing albums this year too
  7. An interview with Karsten Pflum: http://volterock.blogspot.com/2015/05/interview-karsten-pflum.html
  8. "karsten pflum has a very eclectic discography spanning over ten years, with music that varies wildly in approach and execution, exploring and stretching the boundaries and possibilities of electronica. after his last release, the complex and rhythmic 'no noia my love', karsten has shifted his musical direction towards dark and minimalistic ambient but without forgetting his idm-based past. 'sleepwald' features 14 beat deficient tracks - a fascinating look into a rare side of this artist's output." "'sleepwald' is an ambitious and creative exercise in surrealist soundscaping. gently ebbing, flowing synth lines and majestic strings yearn over echoing, rhythmic dripping sounds, enriched with subliminally editedsamples. the evocation of certain environments with a remarkable range of moods between darkness and comfort is one of karsten pflum's crowning achievements on this album. this is dreamy, tranquil music of sheer minimalistic beauty which allows you to enter the sleepwald - wherever and whenever it might be." listen http://www.junodownload.com/products/karsten-pflum-sleepwald/2119659-02/ hymen http://hymen-records.com
