Dj Magal

My friend David Merlino who is one half of the famous Pet Duo techno act sent me some information and a wicked cool Cold Wave/EBM DJ Set from DJ Magal.

“This mix is from a very old school DJ from Brazil. Magal was the one who first dropped Ministry, Front 242, Clock DVA @ Hoellisch, a very underground club in downtown Sao Paolo, where i first heard many EBM bands…responsible for my everlasting electronic addiction… Nowadays he is resident at Madame Satã, another underground club but with very dark vibe…think they had A Split Second a few months ago there.” – David Merlino

Modular Monday

Here are two wonderful modular videos to get your week started. The first Buchla video above is from Italy and is just so very THX1138. Giorgio Sancristoforo does a great job creating lovely FM radio and filtering white noise. The next video shows Brazilian Arthur Joly’s incredible wall of metal. May these blips set the tone for a terrific week.

“A shortwave radio scans through North-African, Chinese, Russian, French, English and German channels, the output is then forwarded to the Buchla. Inside the synthesizer a white noise is processed with three narrow bandwidth band pass filters connected in serial configuration so to obtain quasi-sinusoids sounds. Both the sources are further processed with a balanced modulator and a frequency shifter and stochastically controlled by the Source of Uncertainty 266e module.” – giorgiosancristoforo.net
