“Keep it going, guys…”
One doesn’t necessarily need any more encouragement, especially coming from this grand man, to snap out of immensly busy workingweeks - yeah, the concept paying my rent, bills and plenty more useful & enjoyable things, luckily - and kick in the door that was unopened for far too long, once more brought to my already-existing attention by the gentle folks of OneDotOnly, at the usual sundaynoon full-halt-coffee-and-bubbles stop, that something, even the slightest thing, had to be done…Â To make a long story short : hello! and glad to be back.. No, seriously.
That was the past & present, here’s a narrow view for the future. Next wednesday - that’s in two days time, yes.. - sees the first ‘official’ (*cough*), brand new Resonance 2010 meeting. Can’t say much for now, since, well… there’s not much to say really… Names in our heads, ideas rolling out of our broadshaped minds and noted, talked and discussed about. You’ll hear about it here first.
Set-up last month at the Brussels-based Time To Express studio by couleur-trÃ¨s-locale Peter Van Hoesen & Yves De Mey, TimeCast (notice the gentle voice at start.. Susanne..?) sees a variety of artists and friends related to T2x being invited to contribute a special DJ set, focusing on a particular aspect of electronic music.
Last month Yves De Mey (Eavesdropper / Sendai) took opening honours and brought a wide-range, wonderful selection of 17 tracks “straight from the daily life..”, while in this month of May producer, writer, blogger & what-not Philip Sherburne delivers a 95-minutes long mix “teasing out lines that I heard crisscrossing through different tracksâ€”certain rhythms, tones and moods that seemed to be passed from one record to the next… playing music that wouldnâ€™t normally find a home in a club context…“. Upcoming you’ll find talents such as Sensu, Adriaan Vankeerbergen (Nyckelpiga), Peter Van Hoesen and Franco Cangelli amongst many others doing exactly what they do best : variety & quality leading to a sense of intrigue and general aural pleasure.
For now, goodnight. Soon, more.
