MMx122 Rudolfs Kontainer – Eclectic Rudolfland

Brilliant eclectic lo-fi disco-sweetness – half electronic, half electric – coming your way from Mikal Lillo-Stenberg aka. Rudolfs Kontainer! After making a bunch of demo-recordings in his own home in Oslo over a short span of years, Mikal finally decided to compile his best tunes into this record and release it to the world.

These are probably not just the cool, clever and very catchy grooves you’ve been searching for all this time, but also the kind of music that can and will make you want to pop a can of beer immediately and hit the streets or a park in a capital city on an unreasonably hot summer’s day – if you can find your god damned shoe! Cover art by Ulf.

01. Just Playing A Game
02. She Ain’t My Robot
03. Capital City
04. Smooth Operator
05. Why Did You Break The House
06. Lights On

MMx101 Phlu – Inner Logix

So Phlu’s been on hiatus for a while, but he sent me this a while back. Some lovely cosmic electro funk shizzle!

Inner Logix was created in between other and more important tasks in life like watching airplanes preparing to land, buying weird potato chips in the local food-store, drinking liquor nine o’clock in the morning after being drunk for several hours already, taking the A-train to work listening to ‘Take the A-train’, making failed prank calls to co-workers, exclusively watch television for kids and nothing else, saying ‘No’ to Witnesses of Jehova and Mormons in the streets of Yes-town and wander about the generally creepy situations all around the world.

Tracklist;
1. Gyroscape
2. Wow Yeah
3. Kokua
4. Böse B9
5. Q Through
6. Wapapaya
7. Fotspor

MMx057 Phlu – Exzschplojnk

‘Exzschplojnk’ is a Latin word used to translate the Cyrillic expression ‘оптической’, which first appeared in a Uzbek folklore dating back to year 500 BC. The term supposedly means “chasms of the soul” or “the wounds of the soul”. The ancient folklore deals with the hardships of a young shepherd, Alisher (meaning; “Great lion”), travelling all alone over the Russian tundras. At dawn one cold night, Alisher is stopped dead in his tracks when a drove of white oxen appears before him. The oxen summon a silver colored tube to appear right over Alisher’s head, through which Alisher hears the cries from another man;

When can I disentangle
from this meta-nonsense
and sail into adulthood like
a sailor filled with bravery?
Just like you are filled
with anxiety;
with the course set straight
onto the reef, then
reaching the bottom of the sea
without even to have lived
one single second of your entire life;
While the hollow sounds of techno
reverberates monotonically
through the Bosphorus strait.
Nts-nts-nts.
Bubbling.

The experience, strangely enough, comforted Alisher, who there and then realized that indeed all men of this earth suffer. What he could not comprehend, however, was the meaning of the word “techno”. It was indeed a message from the future. A sign of better things to come, he thought. And he went on with his life and died at the age of 85 inside his little cottage in the woods. Never did Alisher learn, that the man he had heard through the tube summoned by the white oxen, was Phlu, reaching out to him from the future. Artwork by Phlu himself.

Tracklist

02. Sunday
03. Unless
04. Hawaawawawwaii
05. Faster (Phlu & Bananeter)

MMx019 DJ Myhrebonus – Live From The Kitchen

Oh, man. Grab hold of your seat. From the woods of Nøtterø, booming out of a kitchen window, it’s DJ Myhrebonus for all you suckers. Recorded with an mp3-player recorder while playing live on an antique Casio keyboard (we can’t remember its official name, but something along the lines of Breakbeat Machine 3000 Boom Xpander), DJ Myhrebonus delivers the shivers for your livers. It’s the strictly non-parental, oriental, influential, essential mix with action potential – it’s even got live commentary

MMx008 Seminole Bingo – Schizophobia

No one says it better than our good old Ulf, the melodic genius behind another strange release on the label; “Seminole Bingo is your neighbour’s dog on weed, trying to make music for no purpose at all. It contains tunes mostly from the great year of 2005, a very green year”. Here you’ll find tracks varying from Justice-like party dance, via experimental IDM to Primus-inspired (or so it seems) electro-ska. In the words of the good ol’ funcrushers; independent like a fuck! Artwork by Ulf himself.

Tracklist
01. I Hate Tv-themes
02. Remembering Tomorrow
03. I Don’t Even Know Myself These Days
04. Remind Me Who I Am
05. Still Wack
06. It’s The Weight Of The World
