I am extremely pleased to announce that a Limited Edition of my newest album Fire Funmania is available. Made in Germany and limited to 100 copies you get the album on 12″ Vinyl, CD with 2 exclusive Bonus Tracks and an Armband. The set is only 20 Euros so they will disappear quickly. Thanks to Steffen Kuschel and Maurice Roy for making this happen.

My main vocal chain is an API 512c Micpre, Shure SM58, Wavearts Track5 into Izotope Nectar. By using a great Micpre and mic I have a great sounding base but Nectar gives me a lot of styles to work from. Nectar 2 will be available soon and it adds to an already good plug-in a Harmonizer, Pitch Editor, Plate Reverb and creative effects like a Repeater and others. I have no deal with Izotope and highly recommend this one.
“With the new Nectar 2, flawless vocal production is just a click away. Bring your vocal tracks to life with a new modeled plate Reverb, a new Harmonizer, an overhauled Pitch Editor, an out-of-this-world new FX module, and a fully-redesigned user interface. From quick corrections to limitless creativity, Nectar 2 treats your voice to sweet results.” – Izotope

Future Music films Dave Clarke in his studio. Dave is one of my favorite DJs. I adore his long running show White Noise. Most of the time I am on my elliptical trainer I am listening to Dave’s high energy mixes. He plays a lot of techno EBM stuff which of course has my heart. I like how he says he labels the drums always in black. He doesn’t sidechain and never wanted too and he likes digital EQ better than analog. I’ve never met Dave in person but would love to have a drink with him.
“Educated at Brighton College, Clarke ran away from home at the age of 16 after his parents split up. After sleeping rough for a while, a friend offered him temporary accommodation. All that kept him going was his love for music, initially hip hop and post-punk (The Damned are a favourite of his to this day) and the money from his job in a shoe shop. He soon undertook a DJ set at the Brighton nightclub, Toppers. The night became successful and even worried a rival, at which John Digweed held residency” – Wikipedia

Audio Damage has jumped into the hardware game with 3 Eurorack modules. DubJr, Grainshift and Errorbox are 8HP, $179 each and available now. I love and use AD plug-ins all the time so I am very interested in trying these out.

I recieved an email from a guy named Michael Forrest asking to post one of his videos here. I too have made a few GoPro headcam demos and I thought this one one interesting so here it is. One thing I thought was we are now in that future space where so many small electronic syncable devices have been released it’s rare to find people using the same set ups anymore. Everythone has little boxes and touch screens everywhere. Enjoy Mike on his OP-1, Korg Boxes, iPads, Eventides and more.

Pulse Code the makers of Rhythm Studio have released Modular Synthesizer for iOS. The synth is free and then you buy modules for .99 each or $4.99 for all the current modules available. It certainly wont sound as sharp and wild as the real thing but should be great fun on a flight, waiting room or while on the phone with your mother in law.
“Modular looks, acts, and sounds like a hardware modular synthesizer to give you features that musicians want such as pulse width modulation, oscillator sync, 4 pole ladder filters, and 1v/oct filter tracking. Traditional modular systems are expensive and out of reach for the average artist. Modular is here to bridge that gap and allow everyone the opportunity to use these powerful synthesizers.” – pulsecodeinc.com

A few months ago I went to Control in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to watch ALM/Busy Circuits demo their clocking module Pamela’s Workout (link). They also had a prototype module based on a Commodore 64 SID chip. Well that module now called Sid Guts is here. It’s quite a beauty and in the video you can see it has some fantastic controls. The only caveat is you have to source your own SID chip. I’m not sure how hard that is to do but I wouldn’t mind having this guy in my studio. I was recently reading the history of Ensoniq and thought it was interesting that Bob Yannes who started the company also created the SID chip.
“The SID GUTS now takes the legendary SID chip and tailors it into the eurorack modular environment. By use of a real SID chip the classic sound is taken in a new direction with the levels of direct and voltage control only a modular system can offer.” – busycircuits.com

Intellijel are one of the most prolific Eurorack modular makers. I personally own a uStep, uVCA and Triatt. I want to add a Planar and their upcoming Metropolis sequencer to my collection.

On Friday night I (The Horrorist) performed in Paris. This was the last show of a tour that took me to Berlin, Newcastle, Calais, Dortmund, Barcelona, Sweden and Bogota. When I started this group of shows I was about 10 pounds heavier. I lost those 10 pounds in pure sweat. I am near certain the last 5 I lost was just in Paris. I performed at Glazart which is an indoor/outdoor space in the Clichy district. I performed indoors along with Petra Flurr and DJ Bombdahouse. I stayed at the Hilton near the airport because I needed to get back to New York quickly and it seemed the safest bet. I’m also a sucker for any hotel with a swimming pool. I got the call from reception that my driver was there to bring me to the venue. There are events in France called “Free Techno Parties”. These events usually are run by large groups of people in crazy old vans. Typically they smoke a lot of Marijuana and live with a pack of dogs. To my surprise my ride was a perfect example of a “Free Party” van. It was covered in graffiti and full of stuff. I sat up front and off we went. The first song on the card ride set the mood. I heard an accordion play and as some French woman started singing so did the guys. The Eiffel tower glittered in the distance. It’s these little moments that let you know your in another place that I just cherish. We arrive at the venue and in my dressing room I discover a refrigerator full of Champagne & Macarons. One of the promoters was reading my tweets earlier that day and fulfilled my fantasy… very nice! The club filled up and it got hot. Hotter than hell. Petra Flurr performed and got everyone into a frenzy. Now the place was really almost on fire. The only thing keeping the club from burning was that it was covered in sweat. I took the stage and after the first song entered the place I go where I perform. I really enjoyed that during my show every now and then someone from the crowd would join me on stage in a non-obtrusive way. People took turns doing a little dance with me as if to help me along somehow. I received some gifts from fans now friends after the show which I really appreciated. I hope to burn with Paris again soon. Next stop Montreal!! To see the full set of photos: click here
“ohé du bateau! Les Sexy Cat Fuckers, Eksesiv, Epsylonn accostent une nouvelle fois à la plage du Glazart pour leur Grand Boucan de l’année. Sortez vos pistolets à silex, cirez vos plus belles jambes de bois et hissez vos Jolly Roger les plus terrifiants. Rappelez-vous l’année dernière, personne n’en est sorti indemne, mais qu’est ce que c’est qu’une oreille perdue quand on en a deux? Début du partage du butin sonore à 18h00 sur la plage du Glazart, les tonneaux de rhum resteront en perce jusqu’à 6h00 au club du même nom. On ne fera aucun prisonnier, ventrebleu!” – Glazart (Le Grand Boucan)
