△ 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 #1

Here it is…

UNLOg podcast #1 - Mr Freeze

Our goal is reached, the Unlog Podcasts are now on. I’m quite proud to be the first to introduce all this long list of freshness to come. If everything works as expected, you dear UNLOgGERZ will be served a new podcast every two weeks, podcast made by artists especially chosen to please your lovely ears.

As well, we aim to give a panel of different styles of music and mixing techniques thru those podcast. Be aware, some really heavy shit will be dropped!!

As real geeks and music lovers, we don’t plan to just offer you a mix and fuck it. Each podcast will be served with a few questions, to let the dj/beatmaker express himself and also some leave us some free stuff, like free 320’s, some goodies in all sorts, some sound programming presets, graphic stuff, a naked latex wall-paper or so…

Enough blah blah, let’s get it on!


The first podcast is released by Mr. Freeze from Belgium.

Download Unlog Podcast #1

As explained before, i’ll answer a few open questions, which will be the same for every podcaster in the future.

))) Give us your idea of what the music will be 6 months from now.

Wowowowow, even if i knew the question before, I’m still confused when it comes to have to answer to that. I think in six months, let’s say deep summer, it’ll be the summer dance and fancy over-hyped producers period. I’m quite sure the dubstep-ish will do a smash-down into the pop « music ». Those hyper-bass and energy will be completely robbed by some fuckers like guetta or some of his blond mates. It’s already about to be robbed with all the intros and dance-part into dubstep massive tunes. Skrillex, Doctor P, Flux P won’t stop to use them to make the 15’s ladies move. Fuck that, let’s get nasty/heavy and keep it ruff as we love to.

)) What’s your top 5 ?

Top:

  1. Tunisians / Egyptians /Lybians !!!
  2. Slugabed  (who signed on Ninja Tune btw)
  3. Alphe pup rec.
  4. Foreign beggars
  5. Cupp cave / Bretzel Zoo

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

)) Your free stuff now?

Mr Freezy – Carenaz, available for free download. Enjoy 😉
