Dopplereffekt/Objekt - Hypnagogia 12"

There is an upcoming split 12", Hypnagogia, between Dopplereffekt and Objekt. It will be on Leisure Systems, who also released Dopplereffekt's Tetrahymena EP in 2013. The Dopplereffekt track is called 'Delta Wave'. It won't be available until September 1st and will be on 12" and download. This revealing blurb about it is on the labels website. More from Resident Advisor at this link. If possible I will add more info to this post as I get it.

Hallucinations storm the border between wakefulness and sleep. Accurate perceptions give way to distorted visions, senses torn and split through. Borne of mutual inspiration, legendary duo Dopplereffekt and sonic adventurer Objekt present Hypnagogia, a split 12″ on Leisure System, with each transmission derived from a shared journey into extrasensory perception and subconscious thought.

Described only as bassy techno in the RA piece you can hear some of the Berlin based Objekt's music and mixes at this SoundCloud link.

Heinrich Mueller Remixes 1996 - 2013

I was looking at the previous posts of mine which list the remix work of Heinrich Mueller and noticed that since I did them many of the YouTube links don't work. This time I decided to just include all of the remixes to date (will do a separate article on collaborations and one-offs another time) with fresh links (if they can be listened to anywhere online in full or part) which hopefully will stay active for longer this time. To keep this post more concise and easy to reference I haven't reviewed each track as I did previously (check here and here for posts which I did up to 2011 where I did). The Info links usually bring you to the releases Discogs page. As I've stated before, Mueller's remix/remodels are right up there with the best of his own productions and I hope you can discover some new music from this list of 32 tracks (more than enough for a compilation or epic official mix someday perhaps?). If I missed anything please let me now, enjoy.

Jauzas The Shining video

While researching an upcoming post I came across a new video made by Victoria Lukas for 'Bohrium 274' (Heinrich Mueller Remix) by Jauzas The Shining feat Victoria Lukas. This is a track from Nuclear Invasion, a 12" on Last Known Trajectory from 2013. Its Discogs link is here if you need more details to track it down. I would also highly recommend a visit to her YouTube channel which has other videos, some also very new, of her other musical projects Vita and Inkamera. She also has a Twitter account.

The next scheduled Dopplereffekt show to my knowledge is Manchester, England on 8th August. Details here and FB invite.

Dopplereffekt live at Sight & Sound and talk

Dopplereffekt will be playing live in Montreal, Canada at the Sight & Sound festival on Saturday 24th May. Earlier that day at 2pm I will be doing an hour long talk on Science Fiction and Early Techno (this is one of their many free events during the festival). For funding reasons I will now be doing it remotely but please drop by if you can and see me on the big screen! One of the many images from my presentation below (I couldn't not mention the great Abdul Haqq!). Please Note: Sadly due to technical issues at the venue my talk will not now be happening.

Dopplereffekt are also now confirmed to play in Manchester, England on Friday 8th August, tickets are on sale and details can be found at these Facebook and Resident Advisor links.

By the way I just came across this fun DJ Deeon track from 1998 called 'Shake Dat Butt' that does unspeakable things to Dopplereffekt's 'Master Organism' aka 'Superior Race' at this YouTube link. Details of release at Discogs.

Also I've been archiving some of my other writing on music recently at a new website I am calling Abstract Analogue. I plan on putting some new writing up there as well from time to time.

Neptune's Lair & Hydro Doorways reissued Tresor

It might just be a coincidence with my last post but it has been announced that both Drexciya's landmark Neptune's Lair album and its companion 12" Hydro Doorways are to be reissued by Tresor on 26th May 2014. This is officially the second time the album has been reissued (on vinyl only) since 2010. It originally came out on double LP and CD in 1999 and this time will again be made available on both formats. To my knowledge this is the first repress of Hydro Doorways. There are 21 tracks on the CD and the ones that didn't fit on Neptune's Lair went onto this EP. Many online retailers, such as Boomkat, are doing pre-orders now.

Hopefully this is a sign Tresor will get round to doing Drexciya's Harnessed The Storm, Transllusion and Shifted Phases releases soon.

I also came across this great Drexciya tribute from 2012 on Beatport with interviews and favourite Drexciya tracks by Mike Huckaby, Mark Pritchard, Marcel Dettman, Peter Van Hoesen, Catz'n Dogz, Sam Valenti and Sandwell District's Function.

Drexciya Projects Tresor

During a random image search yesterday I came across evidence of what looked like a new forthcoming Drexciya reissue. I'm wasn't sure when the material was posted but one of Tresor's graphic designers, KYK Design Studio, have a number of images for a Transllusion/Shifted Phases double CD on their website under the title Drexciya Projects. I could find no other mention of this release anywhere, including on the Tresor website. Today I found the same images on a type of graphic design showcase website which were posted in November 2008 so perhaps this was a released they had planned but pulled?

Transllusion's The Opening Of The Cerebral Gate originally came out on Supremat (one of Tresors sub labels) in 2001 and Shifted Phases The Cosmic Memoirs of the Late Great Rupert J Rosinthorpe appeared on Tresor in 2002 (both part of Drexciya's 7 album Storm Series). There are no extra tracks on either release (a shame as there are 2 amazing exclusive tracks on the Transllusion 12" Mind Over Positive and Negative Matter). Regardless, these albums have become very rare and expensive for fans to purchase so it would be great to have them available again, even if they were to be limited.

There is no indication there would ever be more in the pipeline (if they ever were to revisit this idea) but Tresor also released Neptune's Lair, Hydro Doorways 12", Digital Tsumami 12" and Harnessed The Storm by Drexciya as well so here's hoping. You can cast an eye on this Drexciya and Related Amazon price guide I did awhile back to see how much some of their other deleted releases are now worth, any and all of which should be reissued in my opinion. Judging by this we are getting closer to the Storm Series boxset anyway :)

Dopplereffekt at Sight & Sound festival Canada

Dopplereffekt make a live appearance in Canada at the Sight & Sound festival on 24th May in Montreal. It's the sixth year of this New Media festival which this time is using 'Science Faction' as its theme. This will be their second time in Canada, since appearing at the New Forms Festival in Vancouver in 2013.

As well as music there will be installations, performance, workshops, talks and panel discussions over a six day period from a variety of international guests. I'm very excited and honoured to be one of them and will be doing a talk entitled 'Science Fiction and Early Techno' at 2pm on 24th May. More festival details at this link.

In case you are interested, my own latest art project, The Zone Does Not Exist, can be viewed at this link.
