My largest resolution for 2017 is helping to make clubbing more into the safe space it’s supposed to be.
In my life, dance music clubs has been my no.1 “Safe Space”, where I go to be with other people in joy and artistic inspiration, where everyone’s friends, if only for the evening. Where any dance move is cool, where your only authority is the thunderous bass, and you check any greviance at the door.
I’ve whipped up a playlist for all of you people that will flip out the next time someone plays “Jingle Bells” in your general vicinity, but still has hope for a peaceful, joyous holiday season. Ho ho ho. Don’t murder anyone. Tell them to put this playlist on instead. IT HAS NO CHRISTMAS MUSIC. But it’s still jolly as balls.
I’ll be adding to it as the yuletide grown near, so subscribe now and worry not.
It was a cold Sunday in November when Lysgaard Leverer Episode 07 came out, you can tell your grandkids. The cover art is getting some “bleed-ins” from my other projects going on right now, you might notice an Inkal, which is from the Legend project.
In this episode we are checking out some new tracks from the following golden children:
- Second Storey and Appleblim – Gimme 6
- What’s Going On (Andy Caldwell’s Love Trumps Hate Remix)
- S4U – One Key
- Myra – hold-an
- Mignon – 808 Dunk
- Viers – Ichi ft. Yaeji (Vocal Edit) – Gitt ut på Godmode.
- Cray Crazy (Anhony Chase & Kevin Fauske remix)
- Atella x Frøder – Closer To Life
- Martin Waslewski – Callous
- Lysgaard – Number Eight Forgets His Medication
- Skatebard – Agfachrome-rsx-ii
I just released two new songs, “Number Eight Forgets His Medication” and the B-side, “A Small Opening Behind Cell Block D”. Check them out! Links to everything below the video. Here’s something from the press release:
Lysgaard’s doesn’t explain what the titles “Number Eight Forgets His Medication” and “A Small Opening Behind Cell Block D” really means, but if his previous work is anything to go by, we are moving through an absurdist version of Detroit Techno territory. The release follows up this summer’s vinyl release of “Assemble EP”, which sold out on Juno records in two days. Thankfully, digital doesn’t sell out that easily.
The cover art is supplied by the eclectic Belgian/Spanish illustrator Gabri Molist, featuring a short comic based on the two songs.
There’s a new episode of our radio programme out; this time with some fresh jams from all those tunnels and pathways between the underground and overground in dance music both internationally generally, but Bergen especially.
Search for Nabovarsel in your favourite podcasting app, or go to nabovarsel.info to get it direct.
“Regular people”, that is, people that don’t eat bass drums for breakfast and drink basslines for lunch, probably won´t understand just how big a thing this is.
Well, in my world this is pretty major. Look for me next time you leaf through the fresh batch in your local record shop! Assemble was launched at Robot in Bergen this morning and is being distributed across the nation and world as we speak. If you want to buy it directly from yours truly, you can do that right here.
