CdV P070: Modern Love and Andy Stott

Since 2002 the Manchester based label Modern Love has represented a sort of litmus test of where current electronica is at. With the restless and predatory curiosity of a cat they have stalked out the forever opening frontiers, shifting from dub techno, to dub step and drum n bass, and then on to knackered house, dark ambient and now noise. But Modern Love has been an innovator of these trends and not a follower. One of their most lauded artists is Andy Stott who has been behind some of the most seminal albums and new sounds, over the last few years. This week we share the respect between the two, focusing on some new releases from label and some essential remixes from Andy Stott.

 

CdV P070: Modern Love y Andy Stott

 

Desde 2002, el sello Modern Love con base en Manchester ha representado una especie de prueba de fuego de donde la electrónica actual se encuentra. Con la curiosidad inquieta y depredadora de un gato han acechado a las fronteras que se abren continuamente, cambiando desde el dub techno, a dub step y drum n bass, y luego a knackered house, dark ambient y ahora noise. Pero Modern Love siempre ha sido un innovador de estas tendencias y no un seguidor. Uno de sus artistas más aclamados es Andy Stott quien ha estado detrás de algunos de los álbumes más seminales y los sonidos nuevos en los últimos años. Esta semana compartimos el respeto entre los dos, se centra en algunos de los nuevos lanzamientos del sello y algunos remixes esenciales de Andy Stott.

Una Filosofía del Tocador

Abril del año 1992. En FistBar! a Oscar Abril Ascaso se le escapó de las manos un martillo que fue a parar a la rodilla de Sedcontra; finalmente, tras una serie de cortes de corriente, éste abandonó cojeando la sala tras un portazo.

As well as praising the high achievers we also ask some serious questions about the music, the festival and the tendencies, not only within Sonar itself, but in electronic music in general as we begin the long wait for 2014.

P008: Factory Floor and Industrial music special

More questions than answers this week as we open the Pandora’s box that is the place where industrial and noise music collide with techno. A focus on the in-demand UK group Factory Floor is surrounded by some desolate tales from industrial music’s key signifiers: sex, mechanization, work and dehumanization, taking in D.H. Lawrence’s rural England, the small town American nightmare and the Empires forged on Industry.

P005: Ambient special

No focus on today’s all ambient show, but instead we go around the world, stopping in all the quietest places. We travel from Actress’s Garden of Eden, to the subtle IDM machinery of Singaporean Xhin, to the pastoral calm of Australia’s Kane Irkin and much more before we end in St Petersburgh and the day dreaming haze of Black Sky Chant.

 

No hay un enfoque concreto en el programa de ambient de hoy, pero en lugar de eso hacemos una vuelta al mundo, deteniéndonos en todos los lugares más tranquilos. Viajamos desde el Jardin de Edén de Actress, hasta la sutil maquinaria de IDM del artista Xhin de Singapur, a la calma pastoral del Australiano Kane Irkin y terminando en San Petersburgo y el ensueño nebuloso de Black Sky Chant. Todo ambient!
