Listen to Krink’s beautifully dark live set from Kater Blau 7am to 8am this past Saturday.
Welcome to Audiolith’s Stiff Little Spinners Volume 7. Once again, we asked familiar and unfamiliar sound progressors to build a helicopter out of paper-clips for us, however all they delivered was solid techno. Very well then!
A1 Trummerschlunk & Ivan Capriles – Frau Böse (Abgelehnt, leider voll)
Trummerschlunk operates wacky musical machines by teasing electronic music out of them. Tough, but sweet and beautifully minimal. “Frau Böse” is an anthem against the compassion-lacking bureaucracy with which Europe cultivates its inhuman immigration (and deportation) policies. Electronic music can be more than numbing.
A2 Kalipo – Dyson
Kalipo a.k.a. Jakob Häglsperger shouldn’t need any further introduction. As part of “Frittenbude” he’s a star, as Kalipo he’s a down-to-earth producer and a passionate techno machinist. It’s only natural that he would name this track after his new vacuum cleaner.
A3 Joney & Gimmix – Can I Haz Guestlist?
The Hamburg-Leipzig axis stands for electronic music with an attitude. On both ends are artists who the monotony of familiarity behind and and break new ground. Sometimes a little difficult, mostly surprising, always with impeccable style and particularly wicked.
B1 Rampue – Adagio for Phoenicopterus
Only the one who knows what a flamingo really wants should attempt writing a track for these wondrous animals. Rampue has travelled to faraway countries and studied their wild-life along the way. This is how he knows that these birds can never resist a beautiful melody in adagio.
B2 Krink – Ascent
Krink – a name like a stone. Hard and void of embellishment. Techno free from la-di-da with even more deepness instead. This has been Krink’s route for years, convincing with clean and nerdy productions without ingratiation. He is called the sound whisperer for a reason.
B3 Hassan Abou Alam – Fragile Things
Hassan lives in Cairo and he is resident with Egypt’s best techno crew “Nacelle”. Where the temperature rises above 40°C regularly, he plays dreamy, melodic down-tempo livesets that never miss a deep bassline. The best soundtrack for lazing about under a parasol.
You can now listen to the complete „Wanderer“ album on Youtube. You will fall in love, we promise.
Feel free to buy your own on Vinyl, CD or stream.
March 2016 is bringing Rampue to a lot of new places. He is going to play in Australia, China, Israel and Indonesia for the first time. Of course he is also back in Germany, the Netherlands, and Poland.

Here you can listen to Kalipo’s Mix that he did for Flux FM in Berlin last week. It starts in an almost-out-of-character-chipper fashion, moves on to be thoughtful and reflective, then turns slightly dark and clubby in the third quarter just to finally end dreamy and a bit loved-up. Like a sort of fairytale Saturday night.
So far most people seemed to like Kalipos second album „Wanderer“. We have gotten a 4 out of 5 from DMC World. Popmonitor interviewed Kalipo and explained, why and how and for whom the album has got potential to equilibrate the madness of life.
The Youtube folks were very kind and only had nice things to say, which is very unlike Youtube Users.
Over at Zeit the reviewer did not like the concept of „Wanderer“ but enjoyed the music which is good enough for us, because the music is what this whole business is about, right?
New dates for our Stiff Little Spinners Dj mixes on Byte FM. Strike midnight.
