Mix: Celldöd – We will not allow any dancing…

Celldod_Mix_Cover

Medan han letade i arkiven så stötte han på en större mängd musik som skulle passa. För de som är lyckligt lottade svängde han ihop allt från chicago house, detroit techno, acid house, industrial, electro, och alla övriga kombinationer som man själv inte ens visste fanns – förrän man satt sig ner och lyssnat igenom allt. Celldöd slevade ihop det bästa han kunde hitta från 1980 till 2014, däribland några klassiker och en del nya grejer som man inte hört tidigare. Bland dessa finns FISHERMEN och en ny låt av Johan Sturesson. Det finns egentligen inga pretentioner i denna mixen, det är helt enkelt en timme och lite till av det som Anders Karlsson (Celldöd) tycker om. Måhända är det så att urvalet är begränsat för hans alterego, men det är ändå en eklektisk blandning som på många sätt saknas på andra ställen.

Nog för att det finns många fler som gör mixar och spenderar tid på att förfina eller förfula dessa, men det känns som om man fått någonting personligt. Inte i den bemärkelsen att det är så in i märgen personligt, utan snarare att det finns en del av tanken bakom Celldöd planterad i själva mixen, men också tidigare projekt som Anders har stått bakom. Innan ni skruvar igång denna mix så ska ni veta att det mestadels är elektronisk musik som ni kommer att höra, men det finns en eller annan avvikare under lagren av bombastisk, minimalistisk, aggressiv electronica. Repartiseraren kan stolt presentera “We will not allow any dancing…” (1980-2014), en mix gjord för detta blogg-zine och som jag säkert tror att ni kommer att uppskatta. Lyssna nu.

Mixtape: Michael Idehall – Svartkonster

Svartkonster-2

Michael Idehall is truly a master of the dark arts. With his first mixtape ever for Repartiseraren, he goes into shadowy territory. This mixtape is an introductory to his teachings which he meddles to the listener through an innovative landscape that quickly shifts from a baseless dark ambient, to a sudden flash of industrial – bordering to death-industrial – but not purely associated with one genre. His own visions are deeply ingrained in this mixtape and it will make us mortals tremble. Everyone will have their own opinion, but we’re speaking in tongues as we’re caught in the middle of greatness. Now nobody really knows where they stand and everything will change in the nearest future. You don’t know if it’s a crack in the wall or if the world is being torn apart.

With Svartkonster” the metaphysics of his music is represented as a theme. Depending on who you ask, the theme varies, but it begins with a false sense of security as the wave of darkness begins to catch up with you and quickly rumble into a complete storm. Your senses are clouded as his magical and hypnotizing sounds do their best to seduce you into compliance. I’m proud to be hosting this mixtape and to be working with Michael Idehall on a co-operative level. Even though he is the conjurer, I am the overseer that sees to everything being where it should be. Enter a blackened world that makes the post-apocalypse seem like a fairytale.

A lot of words can be used to describe it, but it is best to just listen to it and make up your own mind – if you’re still in charge afterwards. Illusory, steady as steel and inconstant are words that might not be apt to describe it wholeheartedly, but I feel so empty after I’ve been struck with the perfection that emanates through layers and layers of sonically charged superstition. You can trust me on the fact that it will at least not leave you indifferent, I believe it will leave you with a magnitude of different emotions – each to his own. Listen to it down below.

Exclusive Mixtape: Kord – In Exile Here

Kord - In exile here cover 1

Three weeks have gone since my exclusive premiere of the songs “Control” – taken from the newly released “We Live In This” 12¨, which featured Annie Gyllin on vocals. Johan Sturesson, whose alter-ego is Kord, recently got that release put out on Gooiland Elektro – the sub-label of Enfant Terrible. Since that release was out, I have been increasingly fascinated by that project and his involvement in and with Frak. Not to mention his affiliation with the label Börft Records, whose bizarre journey was covered by the state-run radio-programme Elektroniskt i P2, hosted by Andreas Tilliander. But this is not about that, because this is totally different. I noticed that Johan had been making some mixes on his own, or at least that he was interested in that. Therefore, I asked him to shape a mixtape for Repartiseraren just because I had taken great interest in his musical endeavours, not only limited to Kord, but also the likes of Monster Apparat which he’s involved in together with Daniel Svraka (Adolf Filter). Compiling tracks is something that I can do by myself, but I only get so far by selecting the songs that are my own favorites. So it can get boring very fast if I’m the only one supplying you with something to listen to.

Kord - In exile here cover 2

So I now decided to ask Johan Sturesson to do a mix and/or mixtape for Repartiseraren. There is where the story begins. Said and done, Johan began making a mixtape for me and he was done very quickly. The result was very interesting and I learned about some new artists and groups thanks to him. Well, what did I see when I first looked at the tracklist, if not Poeme Electronique, Adolf Filter and Ortrotasce at a first glance. Then, I also saw a lot of different stuff that I did not immediately recognize. What on earth is Dada Pogrom, Mängelexemplar and Alien Skull Paint. They sound experimental as hell. Well, they weren’t actually, but they’re all electronic. The apt title for this mixtape is “In Exile Here“, because yes, you’re in exile on Repartiseraren. My lonley island only gets visited once in a while, but certainly not by celebrated artists like Kord. I feel very lucky to introduce to you, one of the nicest mixes that I have received for a long time. Or it might be so because I feel like I’m starstruck. You can listen to the mixtape exclusively on Repartiseraren and you can view the tracklist down below. Feel exiled, it’s good for your heart and soul.

Invisible Guy and Beläten presents: Strife and Fight – an Invisible Guy mixtape!

Strife-and-Fight

Visions and Light, Shadow Rite and now – Strife and Fight. These three names have something in common, and that is the fact that they’re a part of the same mix tape-series. Beläten and Invisible Guy go way back. They’ve worked with each other for a number of years by now, delivering something extra for the readership of this blog-zine each time. Years have gone, and this is one of the few things that really remain. Last time, when “Shadow Rite” got introduced, the mixtape was mixed by Th. Thot of Beläten, himself. It got received very well with everyone, and everyone else. This time, Invisible Guy himself steps up to the plate to show that he can mix, too. Well, since it’s only a mixtape and not a mix, you might get the picture. The difference about this mixtape, from the last, is the fact that everything you’ll hear here constitutes the six recent releases on Beläten and nothing else. That means that every release from 2014 so far, have been jam-packed into this mixtape. You’ll get familiar with Grand Mal x, Dmitry Distant and Distel – from the first tape-batch – and Blitzkrieg Baby, Sebastian Melmoth and L’Avenir – from the latest. The name for this mixtape will be “Strife and Fight“, because I’ve strafed and fought my way when doing this mixtape. Pick up your strength, fire off a right-hook right into solar plexus, because now you’re a fighter. Fight your way through and make yourself a name. Throughout militant martial pop, pseudo-something with a large dose of psychedelia, clamoring electro with a hard-hitting hammer to a beat, weirdly X-files related synthesizer delight, angst-pop in its finest manifestation, and finally – melodious and angelic synth-pop.

This is not from Sweden with love, nor are we in Bromley, if you catch my drift. This is from Sweden with pure hate, from Sweden whose dark forces assemble once again. We’re ready for a fight and we’re willing to take it, we’re ready to strike. If you’re weak, this is not the recommended remedy for you. Since this is a rather harsh mix-tape, this is rather a remedy for all those passive souls that reside within Sweden. Yes, you know who you are and you might find this serum useful. Find yourself in this Fight Club-esque hommage from Beläten and Invisible Guy, strictly put together by Invisible Guy himself. You know that we mean business when this happens, because he rarely, if ever – touches it and brews himself. Now it’s brewing over and you’ll have to endure it with your strengthened skin. Take a jab at me, but before that, start this mix-tape by hitting the “play”-button. You will live through it.

Strife and Fight – this is the end of the line. Invisible Guy hasn’t gotten to mix these former mix-tapes that took the name of “Visions and Light“, to begin with, and “Shadow Rite“, to end with. He’s since then taken the torchbearers’ torch and lit the flame himself. Th. Thot is no longer in charge, he only deliver the supplies. This time, we’re getting down to business for real, and we’re giving you strictly Beläten-related material. Invisible Guy has mixed in Distel with L’Avenir, Blitzkrieg Baby with Dmitry Distant, Grand Mal x with Sebastian Melmoth. We’re meaning it with “Strife and Fight“, your guide to manliness – and your guide to catching the drift – with a right-hook right to your solar plexus. This is war.

Mixtape: DJ Snugglez – Vandringar Bland Allt

Untitled-1 copy

Something really weird happened to me today. I got this mail by someone who calls himself/herself “DJ Snugglez“, who said that he wanted to submit a mixtape. Well, I know for one that I haven’t really gotten the offering to put up a mixtape as such by anyone, really. So it was really a surprise to me that whoever this individual may be, actually bothered to send me this. But you know what? I was really impressed when I listened through it. Everything seemed to fit into the formula of this blog very well, even though I don’t limit my acceptance to boundaries that can be called “genres“. Anything that sounds good to me, will do on Invisible Guy. It would seem like this guy, or girl for that matter – might fit into the experimental scene of Sweden. Because the name itself doesn’t give me any hints, but when it comes to the title of the mixtape; “Vandringar Bland Allt” (Wanderings Among Everything), it would suggest that it would be something that could neatly fit into Zeon Light Kassett or something like it. Well, I decided to put it up for you people to enjoy. It contains a lot of different tracks that would’ve seldom fit together, but somehow they do fit on this mixtape. Everything from the most obscure stuff, like Japanese post-punk(?) and some old-school Gabber – to the likes of powerviolence-esque hardcore. Enough talking, let’s get with the program. The tracklist he/she sent me with the mixtape can be found below, and the mixtape can be listened to – down below as well. A lot of great music that I’ve never heard before, and you probably haven’t either.

1. Image Of Life – Weight Loss In Wartime
2. Automatic Writing – Continous

4. German Army – Lost In A Canyone

Beläten and Invisible Guy presents: Shadow Rite – A Beläten Mixtape!

Beläten-Shadow-Rite

Beläten have long been a proponent of Invisible Guy, or at least as long as we’ve been collaborating with each other. Thomas Ekelund is the head of this gargantuan Swedish label. It seems larger then it is, but it actually is what it seems. Invisible Guy have been a proponent of Beläten, since it’s one of the best and most exquisite labels today. It also makes me proud that it comes out of Sweden, my homestead. Earlier, he’s mixed the mixtape “Visions and Light“. This mixtape is the second one in these unofficial “series“. With 50% forthcoming material that’s going out on Beläten later this year, mixed with the majestic wonders of aufnahme + wiedergabe, La Forme Lente, Malignant Records and Avant!. With a great feature, which you’ll enjoy – a world premiere for a Trepaneringsritualen track, which will be out on Malignant Records later this year. Dance in the flaming pyre, embrace the rites of power, thrown into barren landscapes – is your ego being annihilated, in the Shadow Rite.

Invisible Guy and Beläten constitute some of the most powerful forces coming out of Sweden as we speak. Which brings me to introduce this collaboration with Beläten to you people, so that you can enjoy some exclusive songs from forthcoming releases. But do also enjoy those other songs that have been carefully selected to be featured in this mixtape. His legacy returns to my sphere once again, as his selection empowers the slumbering soul of the awaited Autumn. You will find the tracklist down below, links to Beläten and what ever you can and will find.

Part [III]: Invisible Guy and Nostilevo presents: Industrialized [FROM] Sense!

summercatalogue

Invisible Guy is collaborating with Nostilevo, which means a freaky mixtape that is in between 2 to 3 hours long. Containing both the back catalog, the front, and the end. No, seriously, we’ve put some effort into this mixtape which you can hear old Nostilevo releases on, newly released and forthcoming releases. Much to your joy, it will feature tracks from four of these coming releases. For those of you that don’t know, the forthcoming releases will feature Men Of Bissau, Desire XXI, Bad User Experience, Traag and MA Turner. We’ve incorporated tracks from their future releases on this mixtape. Tune in, tune out, meet your makers!

When Nostilevo hides in the shadows for a while, you forget what’s equally as great. The machines stop in their motions, humans once again stop consuming, as they fall into even greater apathy. So, you know, Nostilevo should be around as much as possible. It is what’s best for Industrial and humanity in general, because we need to power them up once more, so we got a hold of their general. Mr. R, as he is called, mentioned that he has got some releases going to be put out as soon as possible. Therefore, they’re back again, but we’re also back once more. Machines start to venture into motion, humans find more to be joyous about, and Industrial once again – shines like the brightest star on the blackened heavens of earth.
