Aphex Twin at Funkhaus, Berlin (1st November 2018)


Recommended Posts

It's more of a Berlin thing than any one artists personal choice. "Berlin is all like about being in the moment man". I quite like it though. Mobile phones are just another shit marketing conspiracy tool.

Was a pretty hard set with a lot of weird mixing sometimes lol. I'm currently reconstructing and re-recording the mix for my own pleasure and of course for the people who couldn't attend. Not all trac

I love the fact that you wrote this post on mobile phone  :duckhunt:

In which part of Berlin would you guys recommend renting an hotel room / Airbnb ? Me and my GF will be around for a couple of days, landing a few hours before the gig, and want to enjoy the city as much as possible. I've been to Berlin before, something like 10 years ago, loved the city instantly, but have no clue where to stay. Thanks!

apparently security at funkhaus puts stickers over your phone's camera and microphone upon entry  :cattears:  :catsob:

 

  :catrage: 

 

Yeah like said, this is pretty much a Berlin thing.  Pretty much any club will make you put stickers over your cameras.  I've seen people having sex in a club no problem, people take drugs in the toilets without any problems, but you take your phone out to take a picture and you're pretty much guaranteed to get trouble.

Where are you landing, Schönefeld or Tegel?  I would probably recommend trying to get somewhere near Ostkreuz.  The 21 Tram goes from there to right near the venue in about 15/20 mins.  Plus there's an S-Bahn from Schönefeld direct to Ostkreuz in about 25 mins.  There's some nice bars in the area, plus you've got good enough connections to Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain.  Friedrichshain itself is a good place to stay, lots of bars, few parks and generally a busy vibe going on most days of the week.

Still lolling that 60€ is overpriced to y’all... that is pretty typical for a bigger act in the US. Kraftwerk in 2014 was 75 USD, Sigur Ros in 2016 was 90 USD for nosebleed seats. David Byrne this year was 110 USD for first mezzanine. For Aphex? I would probably easily pay more than any of those. You are spoiled, so just enjoy it!

That's pretty crazy prices. I guess that's why I prefer doing festivals. Bangface is 4 days and £180, full of top quality acts all the way down the lineup.

@b born droid: thank you so much! We land at Tegel (flying from France via Frankfurt).

Ok. That's still not so bad. It's a bit further away but you'll have to pass through Ostkreuz/Friedrichshain anyway on your way to the gig from Tegel so would still recommend staying in that area.

Vibert is a fantastic DJ, saw him twice IIRC, and it was like he had acid versions of each and every track, as if he could add a 303 line to any tune no matter the original genre.

Really looking forward to seing Dopplereffekt live too.

Paradox is more of a jungle/d'n'b producer, right?

rich stated once that he's a big fan of paradox and that he has some of the best drum editing (he also plays his tracks a lot in his sets, maybe this time not when paradox is there ;-) )

i read this sticker thing only about berghain, you have a source they do this at funkhaus? if mobiles are prohibited i wouldn't take the camera out, who knows, maybe someone kicks you out, way too risky!

 

it's not about the concert itself, i don't need to take pictures or whatever. in fact i think it's a good idea so that you stop focussing on that thing and dance away. maybe just wanted to send a small clip to my wife to give her an impression of where i am :-D... the problem is more: what if you meet the artists and ask them for a picture? would be sad not to have the possibility...

      Coming soon on ROHS! RECORDS (4th December 2020)
      https://rohsrecords.bandcamp.com
      NEW NOYZELAB Album "CPMSubtree" audio will follow soon
       
      Noyzelab is David Burraston - or is it that David Burraston is Noyzelab? After experiencing the man's work, you may not be able to tell the difference. Noyzelab's debut at ROHS! is a surrounding and otherworldly album called CPMSubtree, made up of five surreal displays of studio electronics that elasticize the album's forty-minute runtime into unfathomable stretches of displacement. 
      Currently residing in Australia, Burraston has spent many years refining his focus in many different departments - lectures and residencies around the world, collaborations with Aphex Twin, Chris Watson, Oren Ambarchi and Russell Haswell, recordings published at Important Records, Taiga, .MEDS, Cataclyst and Psoma Psi Phi, and installations assembled in dozens of indoor and outdoor spaces. He has built his own synthesizers and has written his PhD thesis on Generative Music & Cellular Automata, working to explore and document his research with generative systems, computing and all kinds of synthesis. On top of all of these things, he's often found with portable recording rigs, doing field recording to capture exotic and interesting atmospheres. 
      CPMSubtree is, at least in name, a follow-up to TTMSubtree, a cassette issued at Psoma Psi Phi in 2017, although the sounds presented here are wholly unique, in their own macroverse of existence. When listening to Burraston's music, you can never be quite sure what it is you're hearing or feeling - is that a sinewave, or feedback? Are those bells or a DX7? Is that a gust of Cootamundra wind on the mic, or algorithmically processed white noise? Are we frozen in space while otherworldly spectrums of color billow around us at light speed, or are we being poured down a waterfall, one molecule at a time, to coalesce into a pool of pulsing fluorescence? You might ask yourself any or all of these questions - but Noyzelab does not provide any answers. This is a one-way trip that you can't come back from, so proceed at your own discretion! For those of us eager to map the frontier of new and stimulating electronic music, the unknown has never been quite so rewarding. 
      NOTE: Noyzelab recordings utilize the full breadth of the frequency spectrum, and as such, are best experienced with either headphones or speaker systems that can yield very high and very low frequencies without issue. Lossless file formats are also encouraged, to minimize the reduction of these frequencies and their presence within the recordings.

      Hi,
      I have a complete Analord binder (binder and records in mint condition) that I’ve owned from new since release. The binder was ordered direct via Rephlex’s website and the records from bleep.com as they were released. I haven’t played them and they’ve been in storage since buying. I’m getting more into buying synths/hardware and making my own music now and was wondering if anyone would be interested in a swap for their old/unwanted synth hardware.
      Ideally, and maybe in my dream world 🙂 ,I’d like a Roland JX3P or SH101, but would consider any sensible offers of analogue or digital gear. Also I live in England near to Folkestone in Kent so would prefer to trade with someone in London/South East so we could physically meet and exchange the items.
      If this of interest to anyone then drop me a message. Can provide pics etc to confirm condition.
