  • Drafter, Ninjato, Spongemagnet, Jaak De, Digitale, Stubborn, Leftchest, Verfest @ Kokpit Kafe (Prague) August 10th, 2012

    2012 - 08.09

    Holy hell! Lunchmeat is bringing some amazing glitch and bass acts from around the world to the Kokpit Kafe in Prague. Entry is only 50 Kc ($2)! That’s about two beers.

    DRAFTER: Spaced out glitch-hop producer from Caracas, Venezuela.
    As a bass player, for the rockband Cirko Vulkano, Aldo toured all over the American continent. It was early 2010 when he started the experimental solo project DRAFTER; heavily inspired by the Low End Theory podcasts and his love for synths. After many years of playing live with bands and thinking about the audience reaction it was a relief for him to make more introspective music without worrying about styles and/or feedback from the crowd. DRAFTER describes his style as experimental music based on pounding synthesized beats and low end frequency (ab)use. You can definitely hear the Southern American influences through all the bleeps and beats.

    NINJATO: Shaolin glitch master from Ghent, Belgium
    Ninjato, formerly known as Störungstelle, is heavily inspired by the sound of Doshy, Loops Haunt & Amon Tobin. Just his influences Ninjato loves heavy sound design combined with organic melodies. Add some glitch and bleeps to that and you have a definition of the sound of the Ninja. Ninjato played as a support act for Shabazz Palaces. Other artists he shared the stage with include Slugabed, Doshy, Loops Haunt, Rudi Zygadlo and more. His album ‘Chronicle of the six Samurai’ is coming out on Vinyl in September 2012.

    SPONGEMAGNET: Trosmocosmic beat duo from Brussels, Belgium
    Spongemagnet is the combined minds from Umbrelladelika’s Shepherd & Egon Fisk.
    Their sound is all about wonky beats, fonky melodies and groovy fx. They shared the stage with some of their heroes: Baconhead, Fulgeance, Sunken Foal and & Kelpe. They have a forthcoming album on Herrmutt Lobby’s Thin Consolation label.

    D.V.S. takes us on a journey through space with new EP “The Code”

    2012 - 05.21

    Derek VanScoten’s new EP, The Code, will surely bring you on an epic journey through time and space.  His familiar guitar rifts resonate throughout the five tracks. Each song pulsates with energy yet the tracks are all varied. The EP is a roller coaster of the glitch, wonk, drum and bass–you name it.

    The title track of the EP, The Code is very representative of D.V.S.’s style.  Glitchy background noises on top of melodious, long guitar rifts that culminate in psychedelic, spacial vibes.  If Ratatat and Pretty Lights had a baby, this would be it.

    Track List:

    1. Patrol
    2. Diesel
    3. The Code
    4. Shape of the Future
    5. Movement

    IamTrip – As It Was EP Review

    2012 - 05.07

    It takes a lot to excite me, especially since electronic music is such a fickle lover. She can take you to new places, shower you with all her attention, and offer more gifts than you can possible bare. Or she can lie there- distant and cold. You could say that music and I haven’t been talking much lately.

    That changed this morning, when an EP arrived in my inbox and hit me so hard, it was like an arrow piercing through mediocrity. You could say it succeeds by opposing the latest trends. It’s under-produced, minimalist, ambient, and although there’s a drop, it’s not the kind you would expect. But it would be an injustice to refer to the EP as simply a reaction to popular EDM.

    ‘As it was’ by IamTrip is a beautifully crafted journey through psychedelic and ambient glitch. It also confuses the living hell out of me, which is an excellent sign. I want to bask in its epic post-rock sound, mellow out to its chiller side, and dance to its beats- all within four tracks. I’ve been enjoying ‘As it was’ immensely and hope you enjoy it too.
