[germany] n o c o n c e p t - festival garage stralsund

::: Nice to see Alex Davies featured at the festival!

N o C o n c e p t -- A State of Being

Pocket-earthquakes and underwater-phenomena, muezzin singing from church steeple, a brass orchestra at half speed, digestion sounds out of Polish synthesizers, building instructions for home security cameras, heavy bass
concerts by low-riders, swaying pillars of bridges, mobile phones that cause entire walls to vibrate, cooking as a means of self-defence... not enough? The 7th annual garage festival, which will take place from the 25th of July until the 16th of August, seeks to explore the methods and points of view of the creative process by looking at the principles and manifestations of insecurity and disorientation. The festival presents exhibitions, installations, concerts/ performances, lectures, films and workshops over the course of three weeks.

Kid Kay Ferris releases new album "Colour me Badd"

Kid Kay Ferris

NEW ALBUM - "COLOUR ME BADD"
The brand new album from Kid Kay Ferris is finally here! Colour Me Badd is eleven tracks of unashamedly synthetic retro-inspired music, from dancefloor treats and computer beats to underground bleeps and songs for lovesick geeks. Guaranteed to put a smile on your dial, Colour Me Badd is a full-length musical rampage through electro, techno, breaks, drum n bass, spaced-out 80s ambience and crunchy computer clashing cacophony.
