Volvo XC90 ad?

Does anyone know what the song is on the new Volvo XC90 commercial is? It starts out as piano and goes into atmospheric DnB. I found a website that says that it's Area 51 - Reality, but I can't find that on gracenote and Area 51 seems to be a hard rock group...

If anyone has any info, it would make my day!

µ-Ziq - Tango N' Vectif

A unique, very beautiful, playful, revelatory, advanced release at the time. Certain compositions on this album start up using the very last sound(s) ending the previous one. A fantastic record. Not a new record but timeless ...

µ-Ziq - Tango N' Vectif 2xLP on Rephlex
All tracks composed by Michael Paradinas
and Francis Naughton,
Produced by Michael Paradinas in 1993.


I have two tickets to the Sigur Ros concert at Hollywood Bowl (10/5) that I need to sell. They are section K1, row 5. I paid 113.20 via ticketmaster for them and would like to break even.
Email me: if you're interested.

What is PostEverything?

What is PostEverything?

Back in the real world, where we live from day to day, we're working over the argument about whether music should be free. Being an independent site, carrying independent record labels by small artists the conclusion is: we'd love it if we could give away our work, but the world don't work like that and we still need to make a living.

So we thought we'd make it a bit harder for all those big companies by making it a bit easier to pay the artists and labels back for the work you appreciate in a more direct way, and provide some information and bring some people back into the world of sales.

I loved my old record shop. It wasn't a shopping thing, it was a social thing. I went into the shop, knew the guys behind the counter and the other customers, and we'd chat about records and what was going on. Moving to London I lost this feeling of community.

A couple of my friends, Tony and Colin, approached me about setting up a mail order site to help small labels: the ones whose records aren't stacked en mass at the front of Tower Records. Their labels were to act as a starting point, and the idea was to do what the internet was good at: allowing people with a specific, shared interest, and relate that back to other people, and to help develop that interest.

It's not any particular style of music, or any particular artists. We're not providing a cutting edge solution on Audio delivery because, frankly, the technology and economic structure is a bit weak for that at the moment. We've all got to eat, pay rent, and all that stuff.

So we're not producing any MP3s. There is music here you can listen to as RealAudio files, and there is even a random track selector ... It's not that we will never sell digital music, more that we haven't got the financial backing, nor do we intend to get it, to facilitate giving away people's music.

So instead we deal with CDs [those little shiny plastic discs that people make MP3s out of] or vinyl [those larger black plastic discs which a huge amount of music lovers out there like]. And we sell them [sorry you internet purists, but the web does actually make a good store front]. We're not being mercenary about it, quite the opposite. We hope you find our rates reasonable wherever you are in the world.

Another reason for PostEverything [or PE as we affectionately call it] is that we can reach a wider audience for our labels. We know that a lot of our records are hard to find, because we have too little stock or too small an audience, to get top quality distribution [no offence to our distributors, they have to eat too].

And because we work with a range of labels finding something on one label should lead you to us, and then on to more music from a wide range or artists.

So, take a trip with us away from the mainstream. Come on in and meet the family. And check back for new releases and labels.

Jacques Fred Petrus (about 1950-1986 or 1987)

Jacques Fred Petrus (left) is one of the greatest and maybe also one of the more ruthless business forces in the late 70s and early 80s dance music. From just being an ordinary record collector at first he became a self learned and skilful executive producer with an own musical empire under his sleeve that he manoeuvred in a very clever, firm and determent way from 1978 to 1986. For this achievement and the amazing music that came out from his Goody music/Little macho production companies he has to be admired. Petrus had also an impressive hit feeling mixed with fundamental knowledge about trends in dance music, a knowledge that he had earned during his many years as a DJ and record dealer in the 70s. All this combined spiced up with good timing and a bit of luck made it possible for him to achieve a great amount of musical and commercial worldwide recognition and success. Petrus was also a highly controversial person that from time to time showed a very dark and grim side as a part of his mysterious double nature. His way of handling things, especially during the last years of life even made people hate him and see nothing else than evil in his mind.

Even though Petrus was the main figure of Goody music/Little macho it's very important to understand that Petrus was not a one-man-circus. With just a few exceptions he never composed, arranged or produced the music himself at all, even though he wrongly did take credits for that on the albums. He did however set up the musical guidelines for the music and had always the ability to approve or disapprove what he heard. In that respect Petrus was the creator of the music, but hardly more than that. It was his close Italian co-workers of Mauro Malavasi, Davide Romani, Paolo Gianolio and a few others that took care of that process and were the real forces behind the musical achievements. Without them and the highly talented and regarded hired personnel of musicians, vocalists and lyric writers together with skilful and accomplished studio personnel he would just have been a mediocre man with big dreams!

    Macho - Because There is Music in the Air

10 Days Off and Gentse Feesten report

The 20 July was the Eskimo label night at the 10 Days Off in Gent.
The Juan MacLean was replaced at last minute by Whitey [a.k.a. Nathan J. Whitey] which we, too bad for both p.a., just missed. My Los Angeles tea-mate and myself went down one level and checked the Black Strobe duo which had just started. I wasn't impressed at all by their plain boring, EBM influenced, serial hypnotic Techno, dog tail chasing, harsh and soul lacking, monotonous DJ set. Black Strobe: give me a break (and not just dropping down the bass kick and back in again). Deja vu ! Nothing innovative comes from that truly over-hyped duo. Some in the crowd do not know better and sort of faked enthusiasm for their tedious approach to electronic music. I don't know why these two guys are so blatantly promoted everywhere, this is ballyhoo ! 'Yes, but ... m ... it's Black Strobe!' told me one of the party promoter. Exactly it's that: a name and we had enough of that name pushing in the past.

Now the real dope came from the Lotterboys doing it live. An electro punk funk formation made by Fetisch (a.k.a. Terranova) including Shapemod (Terranova), Paris The Black Fu (Detroit Grand Pubas) and Yuko.

This was a great frolicsome p.a. with drops of whiskey provided from the hand of Paris. I also enjoyed DJ Naughty and The Glimmers on the turntables.

I could catch again one half of The Glimmers duo on the decks again, a few nights later for the last date in the Gentse Feesten (25th) at the Charlatan Deluxe party and it was good. We arrived at that spot quite late , as we hanged around all places in the big street celebration that is de Gentse Feesten. Most of the people in the Charlatan where on the patio outside, catching the first ray of sun. This left much more place for my body rockin' on the dance-floor when I wasn't sharing some deep or fun and even preposterous stories with my friends on the patio.
