Tone of Arc

The Time Was Right: An Interview With Tone of Arc.

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

To say that Tone of Arc have created one of the funkiest records of 2013 is something of an understatement. Said album The Time Was Right contains 11 tracks of fantastically freaky sounds that would make LCD Soundsystem lie down and give up the ghost (oh wait, they already have). Trust me when I tell you that this is music readymade for the shuffling of shoulders, the nodding of heads, the movement of feet, and the eruption of huge face-dominating grins. By JOHN BITTLES
Mr. C.

Waking Up with Mr.C.

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

You know how every once in a while an album will come along that completely defies all your expectations and quite simply blows you away? You press play, sit down, and give the stereo that certain look which signifies that you are going to be very hard to impress. Within minutes though you’ve climbed up onto the table shaking your skinny little ass while waving your hands in the air with something approaching unbridled joy. By JOHN BITTLES
The Black Dog

The Black Dog Runs at Night!

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

The Black Dog are one of those rare bands that appear to be doing what they do for a reason, a need, or a compulsion even. While more and more people in the music industry seem to be all about the fame, or the money, it is truly refreshing to meet a band who aren‘t here to play the media game. Their regular forays into the world of music are constantly met with eager anticipation by those intelligent people who treasure techno that is created with depth and lots of soul. By JOHN BITTLES

Tips For the Top: Daniel Avery

Bittles‘ Magazine | Daniel Avery

Daniel Avery is a producer who makes the type of house music that makes me remember why I fell in love with house music in the first place. Bubbling bass, crashing beats, and edgy synths are all thrown into the mix to create something which positively snarls at the body urging it to move to the beat. This is music made for losing yourself. For closing your eyes, hands in the air, dancing even though you’re exhausted, and thinking to yourself ›thank fuck I am here rather than anywhere else‹. By JOHN BITTLES
Abenteuer Mekong

Die ganze Welt ist voller Barrieren

Gesellschaft | Andreas Pröve: Abenteuer Mekong. Mit Audio-Interview

In seinem Buch Abenteuer Mekong. 5700 Kilometer von Vietnam bis ins Hochland von Tibetberichtet Andreas Pröve von seiner Reise entlang der Lebensader Südostasiens. Fünf buddhistische Länder durchquert er mit seinem indischen Reisegefährten Nagender, um dem Mekong vom Mündungsdelta in Vietnam stromaufwärts bis zu seiner Quelle im tibetischen Hochland nachzuspüren. Dabei tauchen die beiden Weltenbummler tief ein in fremde Kulturen mit all ihren Besonderheiten. Der Klappentext verspricht ein eindringlich und leidenschaftlich erzähltes Abenteuer.
