Hugh Cornwell Gives Thumbs-Up

To Free Downloading

and Offers Latest Release, Hooverdam, On Website

Please Don’t Put Me On A Slow Boat To Trowbridge
MP3 Download Available Now!

In a recent BBC News interview, former Stranglers frontman Hugh Cornwell endorsed free music downloading, coming just as the British government plans to crack down on illegal downloaders. Hugh, currently touring the United States, argues that a new generation is exposed to his music through the Internet and they, in turn, spend more money on his live performances.

“There’s a whole generation of people who have never heard of me or the band I used to be in, The Stranglers. The question is, how do I reach them?” Huh asks in the video. “As far as I’m concerned, the free downloading of music is something we should embrace and not fear… People introduced to my music free online are more likely to buy my records and come to my live shows.”

Hugh is pioneering free downloads as his latest album, Hooverdam, is available for free download at his website, Hughcornwell.com which is available for viewing in twelve languages.
He has also released the MP3 for single “Please Don’t Put Me On A Slow Boat To Trowbridge” from the new record which you can download here.

Hugh Cornwell is continues to tour the U.S. in support of Hooverdam. The tour kicked off March 24 in Tuscon, Arizona and continues throughout the country until wrapping up April 10 in Chicago.

Carl Craig,Francesco Tristano,MVO…live this Friday in London-Interview

Posted in Events, Interview, Promotions, Shows, Video on February 10, 2010 by E.N.


In association with Resident Advisor, the Red Bull Music Academy curates a special one-off night at the Royal Festival Hall, bringing a host of pioneers from the worlds of experimental electronics and avant-garde music.
Carl Craig, Francesco Tristano, Moritz von Oswald, Matmos, Bugge Wesseltoft, Henrik Schwarz, DJ Sprinkles & Andras Fox.
Electronic music has always advanced like a force of nature – pushing itself to every corner of the earth, and assimilating practically every other genre of music into its electronic template. Since techno’s heady space-age birth in the American midwest to its countless modern-day incarnations, its appetite for progress is still insatiable. The Red Bull Music Academy’s fascination with the genre’s future tangents is a dance that has lasted over a decade now. To further this investigation, the Academy takes over the Royal Festival Hall on February 12, with four collaborative acts who’re currently at the forefront of exploring the grey areas of sci-fi electronics, discoball jazz, neo-classical, laptop soul, and 22nd century techno – each one renowned for flipping the formula and getting creative with their own methodologies. Like the contents of an entire weekend festival condensed into one very special evening of music.

The mighty line up includes: Carl Craig, Francesco Tristano, Moritz von Oswald, Matmos, Bugge Wesseltoft, Henrik Schwarz, and Terre Thaemlitz as DJ Sprinkles. Also playing will be a selection of the Red Bull Music Academy’s participants, handpicked from around the world and re-working today’s sound formulas into distinct new signatures of their own.


Carl Craig
Planet E, Detroit
In years to come, Techno will be pored over and historicised and whatever the fate of the brave new world’s music, a handful of names will have been immortalised through it. Carl Craig’s is one. Craig started out as Derrick May’s chief assistant at Transmat Records in Detroit and London. In 1989 he released his first single “Elements” as Psyche on Transmat and became what can be called the spearhead of the second wave of Detroit Techno. In the 1990s Carl Craig released House, Techno and Electronic Jazz under different monikers including 69, Innerzone Orchestra or Paperclip People. In addition his productions can be heard on labels including KMS, Open, Mo’Wax and Retroactive. Soon after his first steps in the world of Techno he founded his own label Planet E. Today Planet E is one of the most well known and respected labels for electronic music of all genres. Artists on Planet E have been, alongside Carl Craig himself, Moodyman, Common Factor, Alton Miller, Recloose and Herbert. Carl’s recent work with remixes for Beanfield, Theo Parrish. X-Press 2, DFA or Rhythm & Sound reaffirmed his status as an exceptional producer,

Derrick May Red Bull Music Academy

Posted in Interview, Shows, Techno, Video on February 3, 2010 by E.N.


This is a short edit of Derrick May’s interview/ Lecture at Red Bull Music Academy.

To be a living legend is not an easy game to play. Derrick May plays that quite well though for 20 years plus. As one third of the infamous Belleville Three (Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson being the other parties) he created a beast named techno that longed for a beauty called soul. Strings Of Life being the quintessential track of that genre, May is responsible for an armada of similar tunes that all mix and mingle with industrial melancholy and romantic futurism. Unparalleled and universally valid… It Is What It Is.

The L-Vis 1990 and Bok Bok – XLR8R TV

Posted in Dub Step, Interview, Shows, Video on January 13, 2010 by E.N.

“Where’s that spit bucket?”

British house producers James Connolly and Alex Sushon (a.k.a. L-Vis 1990 and Bok Bok) may be experts in what’s going on in the ever-shifting world of London club music, but can they tell PG Tips from Lipton tea? Here, as they talk about their influential London party (and now record label), Night Slugs, we force-feed them American and British chocolates, ciders, and baked beans to see how culturally refined their palates truly are.

Claude VonStroke is a Dirtybird- XLR8R TV

Posted in Interview, Video on January 6, 2010 by E.N.

Producer and label founder Barclay Crenshaw (a.k.a. Claude VonStroke) takes a ride though Dirtybird history.

San Francisco house and techno label Dirtybird is a tightknit crew known for striking the bumpin’ balance between goofy and grimy. Here, we get the key players—Claude VonStroke, Worthy, Justin Martin, and Christian Martin—talking about the history of the label, their infamous Golden Gate Park parties, and how the Dirtybird sound evolved. As an extra bonus, we get a highly subjective tour of San Francisco in a sweet rented convertible. Everyone wins!
