More on NOYL / FAMELIK :
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!
Props to our team, our party friends, artists who contribute to the projects, to all those who listen, follow, support, help, love, share, read, acknowledge our existence, whatever. Many other websites and people would fit here but we’ll keep some for the next update. What an update.
As usual :
Long time no see, how have you been? It’s time for a new podcast.
Engone also appears on our latest beat tape, tribute to Ravi Shankar, with the track Morning Bloom.

Engone Endong is a busy cat.
Just for this year, the Montreal based producer/beatmaker and Dj is working on 3 different projects, including his debut album that he relates himself as an « Off the Planet » journey.
In December 2012, he put online a free album, « Colored Dust (lite) », under the name of the fictive band, Atsie Sun Orchestra.
This project was a huge success and was downloaded more than 5000 times (Japan with 2000 downloads)!!!
He also composed the entire soundtrack of the virtual experience of the movie/documentary « Les Etats-Unis d’Afrique- United States of Africa » by Yanick Letourneau.
Engone describes his music as an experience, a fusion of cultures and traditions, a mix of genres that can’t be really defined without listening.
He also cites Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane, Fela Kuti and traditional teachings from all across Africa as inspirations.
He started his career under the mentorship of mythic Siya Po’ssi X in 2000 (pioneer of gabonese Hip-Hop) and since then he collaborated with numerous artists such as Elom 20ce (Togo), Waahli Yussef (Canada), Safari Black (USA)…
With Dj Sugarface Nene (Beat the World, Canicule Tropicale), they formed the duet Dj combo, Kelly+Engone, performing live the Essence of Traditional Music (Latin, African, Asian, etc…) with samplers, rare vynils and percussions.
This podcast is another journey in the colored universe of Engone Endong.
From japanese mangas (Saint Seiya, Bleach) to the Bwiti and Mvet music (Gabon), It opens another window and give an interesting perspective of things to come.
He sure is a busy cat.
More on ENGONE ENDONG :
One of the most productive montreal’s producers. It’s his fourth EP since the beginning of 2012. Here’s the new one « Kaytrap ». He represents what we call Piu Piu in the poutine’s capital.

Pour cette seconde année consécutive, le Rumble Festival se tiendra cette année à Lyon du 1er au 18 Mars 2012. Au programme, une cinquantaine d’artistes de la scène Bass Music locale, française et internationale, le tout dans 10 lieux différents de la ville.
Quelques noms? Congo Natty, Tenor Fly, Noisia, Friction, Joker… Toute la programmation plus en détail sur LE SITE OFFICIEL DU FESTIVAL : http://www.totaalrez.com/rumblefestival
Forte d’une première édition riche en émotions musicales, l’équipe de Totaal Rez organise cette année la deuxième édition du Rumble Festival. Fidèle à sa volonté initiale orientée sur le long terme, le festival renforce sa pluridisciplinarité en proposant cette année, autour de ses trois principales nuits, un parcours artistique avec trois lieux d’expositions, trois cartes blanches, une label night, un blindtest ainsi que deux launch parties à l’étranger. En offrant encore la part belle au Vjing, la baseline du festival devient Art, Visual & Bass Music Meeting.
Sous l’influence des origines anglaises de la Bass Music, Totaal Rez s’ancre résolument sur son territoire local et urbain en s’entourant de structures promotrices rhônalpines. Pour l’occasion, Enover, Bass Freak Dogz, Oh Gosh !, Bass Jump, Airflex Labs, F4t Music et No Rules Corp s’associent à l’évènement pour représenter la Bass Music « made in Lyon ».
Cet événement fédérateur promet de belles rencontres à la croisée des genres qui composent ce mouvement musical : Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Future Garage, Breakbeat Tropical Bass, UK Funky, Electro, Dubwise, Dub et tant d’autres. Des artistes dont la renommée est internationale, pionniers ou jeunes prodiges, viendront endiabler les salles lyonnaises.
De la même manière que la musique connaît une forte évolution dans ses méthodes de conceptions, de l’analogique au numérique, les expositions présenteront l’art lié à la Bass Music «de la rue à l’écran», sous différentes facettes : photo, peinture, vidéo, illustration, graphisme. Une exposition vinyle retracera des moments forts de l’histoire de la Bass Music. C’est tout naturellement autour du mot «RUMBLE» qu’Enover et Totaal Rez s’associent pour organiser cette déambulation citadine.
Le Rumble Festival se compose d’événements gratuits et payants à la capacité d’accueil et à la programmation allant crescendo. Totaal Rez souhaite ainsi présenter au public français un événement à la porté de tous, pour un public initié ou à la recherche de découvertes émouvantes et percutantes.

Some weeks ago, we’ve been posting here a video of a project called Shinect, a way to use the Kinect wireless technology (XBOX’s videogame controller based on motion capture) as a MIDI Control interface.
Today, the Shinect project launched its website, on which you can find all the downloads, informations or application of this amazing software!
« Shinect is a Midi controller that uses Kinect. It’s written in C++ and runs on Windows (XP/Vista/7, 32 or 64bits).
It’s a simple standalone application that uses basic augmented reality with Kinect to send any Midi output messages to any Midi port, physical or virtual, so you can control any software or hardware gear. »
Time to test it now!
