Endong Engone – Colored Dust (DL) + SATG podcast

Engone – Live on CJLO radio – Oct 29th

Some of you crate diggers around here might already have checked the Stroll around the groove radio show. If not, just know that a part of the Unlog team is also part of that project, a radio show hosted on CJLO (Montréal) every monday night.Stroll and Unlog are cousins, in a way, Stroll being the old school cousin, focused on rare grooves in all its forms.Last show led us to know a bit more about our two Montreal based guests, Sugarface Nene (Beat the world) and beatmaker Endong Engone, as you can hear in our latest podcast (french speaking, but not that hard to handle).

What leads us the point to that article, a.k.a. a free download release from Endong Engone, soon to be followed by new material in some weeks. We’ll repost about it soon.

Enjoy 🙂

PS : What about a new Unlog event?

Today’s pick : VNDL & R33 Soundmakin’

Unlike yesterday, today’s pick will feature two artists who strive in two different layers in this musical mesh. Yet, both of them appear on our Unlog Complex #01 project, which (nuff said) is still available for free download. Let’s start with…

VNDL – Gahrena : Paysages électriques (Hymen Recordings)

VNDL is familiar with our readers, through the podcast he’s provided some months ago and the track Mille fragments we’ve released with Blackelk Recordings. His work is something I really want to push not only because of the common approach of sound we share, but also because he’s a really prolific artist and whose sounds clearly evolves between each and every project he works on. We don’t want you to miss the chance to witness that.

So expect to deal with sound textures here. Remember that while music tastes can differ in many points between two people, we’re all sensitive to sound textures. It’s just a matter of context.

I like writing. I should do it more often. But sometimes, the description provided with a release fits way more when you want to describe it to someone else. It’s not always the case (and maybe a worst 10 album descriptions would be a funny game), but it’s the choice I’m gonna make now.

‘gahrena’ envisages a deeper exploration of virtual reality by using highly processed electric guitars as well as manipulated field recordings and a wide range of electronic devices. the sound on this album can be described as abstract electronica with a deep organic feel, where vndl’s inspiration and sonic research fuse with the amendatory work of nebulo, offthesky, pleq and c0ma.

vndl constructs a changing, mysterious sonic world recreated from aural landscapes already in existence. a gripping release taking you away to as-yet unknown environments – attentive listening required.

R33 Soundmakin’

Different topic now.

This broken beat / groove / hip hop oriented producer was unknown to me some months ago, until I discovered his project Klendatü on Bandcamp, thanks to a guy who’s used to stroll around the groove. Here it is.

If your question is « is it a free download », the answer is yes, and I’m even going to put tags on this article so everyone knows where those fresh beats are available.

Since then, we got in touch to invite him to join our beat tape project, and his track Octobre finally ended in the release. We’ve been discussing a lot on the final sound he wanted to have on his final, especially on his kick drums.

Despite my very selective (and boring) views on hip nop beats, this conversation made me understand the importance human groove takes in his abstract beats, which is confirmed by his latest release, a collaboration with MelodiQ.

Brace yourself, those two tracks got vibes!

Stroll Around The Groove

FR : Pourquoi faire un article en anglais sur une émission présentée en français? La réponse est contenue dans la question : l’émission est en français et on sait déjà que t’as pas attendu la fin de l’article pour balancer le beat et aller digger la vibe. D’ailleurs, je pense que t’en es déjà à la session Mantronix au moment où tu lis ceci. C’est pas encore fait?… Bon, remonte un peu pour cliquer, j’ai une minute…

Bien, maintenant on reprend. Stroll around the groove est une émission hebdomadaire diffusée sur CJLO, radio basée à Montréal et gérée par une méchante team de djs/diggers/chroniqueurs que je vois taffer dessus chaque semaine. La préparation est solide. Le son est solide, le pattern est respecté et bien plus encore, ils m’ont donné une méchante envie de me remettre au digging. On verra ca après la sortie de la beat tape Unlog Complex #1 tiens…

 

Bonne écoute!
