Robot Koch, the super talented Berlin local will blessing our ears at this year’s Sperm Festival. Yeah, the event is back and better than ever. This is one show not to miss if you’re in Prague this weekend, the 23rd to 25th of April.
I posted Robot Koch’s ‘Hard to Find’ in one of the first posts on Glitch.CZ but it’s so lovely, it merits a repost.
Looks like Eskmo’s remix of Amon Tobin’s “Sister, you have got to listen“ has led to some more fruitful collaborations. The two have combined forces as Eskamon and released their first single titled “Fine Objects”, to be released on Eskmo’s “Ancestor.”
If that wasn’t cool enough, the notorious Illiam a.k.a Ill.Gates created a 10 minute tutorial video that accompanies a free Ableton Live sample pack using material from the original “Fine Objects” track. Head over the Eskamon for the goodies and see the Ill. Gates Tutorial below. What a great way to learn how to start messing around with music!
This is the first episode of a monthly podcast featured on Glitch.CZ. The format includes two musicians, always from two different continents, each playing an approximately 15 to 30 minute set. We hope this podcast will help spread awareness of diverse and emerging musical talents around the world.
This month features the Slovakian producer and monome masher, Foolk. Plus, an exclusive never before heard live set by San Fransisco’s Shipwrek, featuring material from his upcoming release titled ‘Ink’. An interview with Shipwrek follows his performance.
The Slovakia-born experimental music producer Dusan Vanco, has been working under the alias Foolk since 2007. His Music is like a colorful trip through layers of micro-sampling, cut beats, electronic soundscapes and intentional sound destruction. From his live sets you can expect a ton of sampling, beat cutting, and wonky experimentation with his Monome.
Shipwrek’s first release titled ‘Journal’ is a journey through the enchanted mundane. Having sampled everything from a forest’s wind to whistling strangers in a back-ally, Shipwrek has imbued his music with something intensely powerful. Experiences, thoughts, and feelings were recorded in a process he refers to as “music journaling”. Because of this, every track is like being on the verge of a new discovery yet simultaneously, there is a gentle familiarity.
Very Foreign Affairs and Glitch.CZ bring you Dewey dB! Coming all the way from Canada, this Glitch Hop master will be pleasing your ears on April 17th, in the legendary Cross Club. Supporting acts include Claviq, Denoir, and a live set by the French Casanova of Dubstep known as Emotional Spy. Upstairs on the same evening you’ll be able to hear New Zealand’s Truth accompanied by the freshest of the Czech dubstep scene including Matoa, Priapus, E.S.P, and Valoa.
For the last decade, Dewey dB has been at the forefront of new music and technology. Inspired initially by the early hip hop/turntablism scene, Dewey found IDM while pursuing his electrical engineering degree and continues to be inspired by bass-heavy, glitchy sounds. He is one of the original founders of Toronto’s Dubslingers crew, a prolific force in Canadian dubstep for the last 4 years. Besides running popular sites Glitch Hop Forum and Dubstep.ca , Dewey’s release with Muti Music, “H.A.A.R.P.” peaked at #3 on the Beatport Electronic charts, remaining in the top 10 for several weeks.
Emotional Spy manipulates electronics to soundtrack our cracked souls. Live, Emotional Spy leaves the soundscapes home to present each time on stage more smashing live sets. Hidden sounds, sharp beats and heavy basslines are then his way to enter into your brain and body. He has shared line ups with BBC Radio 1 experimental mistress Mary Anne Hobbs, Planet Mu’s Milanese or other Funckarma (Warp) among many others.
Splatinum has been cooking up some alchemical brews with their upcoming release ‘Der Schplatzl’, which is due to be released April 20th. Glitch.CZ was lucky to get to preview the album and it’s nothing less than basstastic. But, what else would expect from Mochipet’s Daly City Records? Splatinum is the collaboration of Andrew Luck and Adam Houghton aka Dosadi. These two clearly know what’s up, as they blend together the lovely electro synths that have been ubiquitous over the past few years, with monstrous bass, and delectable glitches. It’s the best of electro, dubstep, and glitch hop, all mashed together for a guaranteed good time.

On the 24th of April the newly reopened Club Trix (Reissigova 1) will be hosting a night dedicated to dubstep and glitch in Brno. The Moravian metropolis will be visited by the renown glitch producer Dewey dB traveling all the way from Vancouver. Dewey’s performance will be accompanied by a fellow Canadian, Chi-Chi, as well as Slovakia’s Falujah.
There will also be fresh beats from other local DJs, including Darjeel with his fractalized glitch sounds. And vegan food will be available for those looking for a bite to eat.
Znovuotevřený klub Trix má to potěšení hostit party věnovanou dubstepu a glitch.
Moravskou metropoli navštíví v tomto termínu zasloužilý dubstepový a glitch producent Dewey dB ze zámořského Vancouveru a historicky poprvé vystoupí v naší domovině.
Deweyho vystoupení doplní jeho krajan Chi – Chi a také djane Falujah z dálného východu.
Kromě těchto “zahraničních” projektů se můžete těšit také na reggae a dubstepové vibrace v podání více či méně domácích djs, Mateyky z Pawlač Zewls a Wodnyaha. Tento večer okoření svými lehce obskurními glitchovými fraktály Darjeel.
Hladové krky jistě uspokojí tradiční vegan food.
