△ IT’S ALL CONNECTED △

Can a website be human enough to allow us to say that a website is another website’s friend? Seriously, I have no clue, I don’t even care so stop asking weird questions, will you?
Famelik here. I’ve decided to mark this transition to spring and to make some things more explicit : Unlog is, one way or another, connected to many people and projects. So lets do an update and introduce you to some of them. Not because they pay us, but because each one of them deserves it.

• Kalbut DSGN : Graphics you’d like to fuck

We can credit Mr Freezy for most of our visual and graphic identity at Unlog. The best ones I mean. Hailing from Belgium,
he and his partner in grime are talended hard workers who teamed up go way beyond your expectations in graphism, art and product design.

• High On Beats : Electronic music dream team from Montreal

Formerly JaimeLeDubstep.com, HOB is an art collective based out of Montreal, Canada. The core team consists of Construct, Def Child, Geoff Bukk, Amy DubSelekta, Wally and Rob Habit, working with an extended team of people who all are actors in the Montreal music scene. They all joined forces to share their love and passion for contemporary underground electronic music of all kinds, with a focus on bass, beats and sound culture. You’ll undestand it at the first look on their brand new website, which offers a variety of content that will make you a busy listener for the days, weeks, months (years?) to come. Long life to HOB!

• Stroll Around the Groove : Rare groove weekly radio show

Crate digging and rare groove here. SATG is a weekly radio show and event I’m proud to be part of. Pride is not even the right word, but the best I have in mind to express how amazing it is to discover by my teammates’ digging report every week. We’ve recently celebrated our 33th radio show, and we certainly won’t stop here. Sit tight, we bring the records.

• Rider Radio : Never ending stream of tunes

RR is an innovative web based music platform that provides exclusive mixes, playlists and live performances, as well as reports on emerging trends from our correspondents across the world. We teamed up with this brand new project to bring some Unlog vibes to the platform, so expect some more news on this side soon! +1 for their amazing interface and the quality of their live shows. Hard work, again.

• Beat4Battle : Cut it up f.f.fresh…

2013, and still, B4B is one of the most active boards for turntablists and beatmakers all around the world. Each day, new people with different levels, different music orientation join the family to share media, events and knowledge about turntablism, challenging each other on monthly scratch and beatmaker battles. What else, join the crew!

• Audace Radio : trip to Japan

Our crew members are based in France, Canada, Belgium, and Japan. For those among you who’re interested in the Japan part, here’s the link for you. Audace Radio is the main project of our friend Audace, DJ and producer based in Tokyo. Apart from his own events, label releases, mixes, he’ll also share content related to the hip hop/broken beat/electronics scene in Tokyo. Stay in the loop.

• Tales from the Crate : Radio show based in Belgium

Belgium again, with our friends Fabot and Reverend D (B4B, Pipolass) who’ll keep you in the loop on the latest releases linked to the turntablism and beatmaker scene in Europe and around the world. French language again, but you’ll like their selections. Tune in!

• BassMusic Magazine : Bass music, yes. But French style.

When DJ Noyl does not dig for Unlog on work on his beat-juggling patterns, he writes articles for his french family : Bass Music Mag. A web-zine magazine focused on bass music, with articles, interviews, portrait, chroniques, playlists and a diary of french events.

• Blackelk Recordings : A new beat scene based in Southern France

If you’ve been hanging around lately, you’ve obviously read several times about Blackelk Recordings. Created by UM, one of our very first podcasters, the label recently celebrated its first anniversary and plans some interesting things for 2013. All the catalogue of this new beat scene is available for free download, a good opportunity to discover previous works from artists such as Broken Drop, UM, Everydayz, Duff Ill, Hentitan, Killacam, Le Med, MLp, Freaks Show Spores, Famelik (who’s that guy again?) and many more. No shameless promo here : our connection being the logical consequence of our similar views on music, they definitely have to be on that list.

• Shabu Recordings : Splash

« post arty ambient electroacoustic synth music inspired by acid and techno » can be an option if you try to find a keyword combo to describe what’s Shabu about « whatever, just feed me new music » could be another combo. Either way, this Montreal based label holds the key to a world known to few people, full of immersive textures you’ll sometimes want to listen to at night. Axel Helios, Jesse Somfay, Avus, Niccolò Bianchi, Vaghe Stelle, Groj… are the core artists signed on this label, not to add the impressive list of artists about to join the spash (hehe, I know, you don’t). Thanks again to Axel Helios for mastering our Ravi Shankar tribute beat tape by the way!

UNLOg Podcast #6 – Construct


This time, let’s go for a bassy round with a podcast provided by Construct (CA)

Based in Montreal, Founder of international podcast & blog, J’aime Le Dubstep, Construct has been pushing bass in every way possible. Starting in Halifax 5 years ago as a DnB/Breaks promoter, he discovered Dubstep and propelled himself to the air waves of CKDU.ca 88.1FM for a 2 year stint before making moves to Montreal. Jumping on board with Vilify at Bass Drive Wednesdays and running two weekly radio shows at Sub.FM & Jungletrain.net, it wasn’t long before Constuct had rinsed all the biggest clubs Montreal. Performing on stage with acts such as Benga, Skream, Rusko, Goldie, Bassnectar, Chrispy, Borgore, and many more. His intense energy on stage is felt by everyone as he tears through crates of exclusive bone shaking Dubstep/Bass Music or mind shattering Riddims & Amens; all while jumping, kicking & screaming at the helms of the mixer.

Construct is a definitive source of cutting edge Bass Music that pleases the heads to the haters every time he blows up a party. Catch him Live on Air every Tuesday night on Dubstep.FM – 8pm EST / 5pm PST / 1am UK. This summer at Evolve Festival and Sunseekers Ballroom.

))) What’s musically to expect by the next 6 months?

Recently I help launch a new website with some friends at Twerkit.net. Wally, Hesk, Paveun & I will be writing about Juke, UK Funky, and whatever else gets us moving. We’ll be launching a podcast mix series similar to JaimeLeDubstep.com, and hosting events in Montreal. Other then that, we keep working on JLD and I hope that soon enough I’ll finally get down to producing some beats.

))) What’s your current top 5 ?
Wow, that’s a hard question because every week my answer could be drastically different. I couldn’t pick tracks so I’ll go for producers. So here goes…

Distal
Machinedrum
Wheez-ie
Wachs Lyrical
Krampfhaft

))) What is the most disturbing thing you’ve seen/heard this week?

Ehhhh, the amount of crack heads last thursday night standing outside the Berry Metro exit on St-Catherine street when going to the DJWEB.TV loft.

EDIT :

EASILY the MOST HORRIBLE thing i’ve seen online in a long time…. beating goes on for 7mins…
