Nine Reasons To Make You Fall In Love With House

Musik | Bittles‘ Magazine

There is a strong electronic element to this month’s album review round-up. I make no apologies for this considering there are such fine releases as ›Reality Testing‹ by Lone, ›Vaudeville‹ by Inigo Kennedy and ›Code‹ by Answer Code Request in amongst an absolute bumper crop of fantastic groove-based releases. So without further ado, let’s begin. By JOHN BITTLES

When one no longer has the attention span for an album

Bittles‘ Magazine

When not urging me to kill, torture and maim, the little voices in my head have repeatedly wondered why there is no reviews section for singles and EPs in my segment of the esteemed Titel Mag. My standard reply is that it would be far too much work since I’m a bit of a lazy git and all! But, that attitude softened somewhat over the last couple of months due to a couple of reasons. First up I heard Acid Test 09 by Donato Dozzy and Tin Man and instantly fell in love. Next I noticed that my inbox had, somehow, become overloaded with great new releases. It suddenly seemed pretty damn churlish not to give them the attention they richly deserved. By JOHN BITTLES

Music To Put Hair On Your Chest Pt. 2.

Bittles‘ Magazine

If it is great music you are looking for then I must commend you for your intelligence and inform you that you have come to the right place. And whereas last week’s selection of new releases had some amazingly good records it’s, if anything, an even better selection this week. We’ve got the superior house of Mark E, the languid guitar grooves of Coves, the experimental pop of Maria Minerva and lots more. So, pour yourself a nice glass of wine, open up a packet of crisps and prepare yourself for some of the best music you may ever hear. By JOHN BITTLES

Music To Put Hair On Your Chest Pt. 1.

Bittles‘ Magazine

After the trials of ›Record Store Day‹ where I queued up for two whole hours only to find out that I had parted with £20 in exchange for a flat piece of cardboard it is somewhat of a relief to be writing about new music that is universally available to all. In fact this month is such a whopper of great releases that I have made the brave decision to spread the praise, scorn and sexual innuendo over two weeks. By JOHN BITTLES

Platte

Mehr ist manchmal mehr!

Musik | Toms Plattencheck

Asmus Tietchens ist ein deutscher Musiker, der in den Jahren 1981 bis 1983 vier Alben auf dem Label Sky veröffentlichte. Auf diesen tobte er sich mit Zisch- und Fiepgeräuchen, Stolperbeats und schrägen Harmonien aus. Die Alben kamen in »quietschbunten Schallplattenhüllen«, die Ära wurde als »Zeitzeichenphase« abgehakt, bevor Tietchens (der tatsächlich so heißt) sich geräuschvolleren Stücken im Übergang zu Industrial widmete.

The MFS Trip into the History of Trance!

Bittles‘ Magazine | Album Review

Before the term Trance became something to be pitied, hated and despised as well as the dominant force in dance music it was seen as a creative revelation that brought the emotion back to House. The adrenaline-fuelled head-rush of rave was coming to an end, hardcore had become just too hard and the club kids were craving something new with which to get their chemical kicks. By JOHN BITTLES

Some Tunes To Help Fight Those January Blues!

Bittles‘ Magazine | Album Review

You know what! I love January! It’s that whole sense of anticipation of what the new year is gonna bring that leads me to look forward to the upcoming year. Sure, no one is playing any gigs, or releasing music! But that just means you have to look that little bit harder to find the hidden gems. By JOHN BITTLES

An Interview with Jonsson/Alter

Bittles‘ Magazine

Like any right-minded music lover I fell a little bit in love with Mod, the debut album by Jonsson/Alter upon its release in the cold autumn months of last year. It was the type of record that drifted into your consciousness and resided there unobserved until you came to realise how completely empty your life would be without it. So when news emerged of a follow-up I have to admit that I punched the air in delight (for me as a typical working-class male that is one huge display of emotion. Seriously!). By JOHN BITTLES

We Are The Music Makers. The Makers of Dreams

Bittles‘ Magazine

I remember walking into my local record emporium way back in the year 1992. Of course everything was in black and white back then as colour hadn’t yet been invented. I had a singular purpose! To purchase a strange record that I had heard discussed in closed circles and hushed tones by shadowy figures with a glint in their eyes. By JOHN BITTLES

Ekkohaus – An Interview

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

You know that sense of nervous anticipation you get as you put a new album on and you don’t know what to expect? That shiver of suspense you experience as you put the CD in the stereo, place the record on the turntable, or press play on the file is a pretty beautiful thing indeed. Yet nine times out of ten you end up disappointed by what you hear. Be it landfill indie, or generic tech-house nonsense with the personality of a paving slab, the discovery of new music can be a fraught and terrifying adventure that makes even the most ardent of music lovers ponder the point of it all.
