Dinky

House Music With vocals? Oh, Go On Then!

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

Dinky, real name Alejandra Iglesias, has over the years, produced some of the most sensual and exciting house music around. Releases on Cocoon, Truam, Crosstown Rebels and Wagon Repair have moved clubbers everywhere with their lush tech-house grooves. Single Acid In My Fridge thrust her into the limelight in 2005, and since then each release has been eagerly anticipated by an ever growing batch of clued-up listeners who have fallen for Dinky‘s versatile and ever-shifting sound. Previous albums May Be Later, Anemik and Black Cabaret were all strong records that somehow managed that tricky task of working as club music just as well as for listening at home. By JOHN BITTLES

Das aus Peter Hoppe und Bernd Batke bestehende Produzentenduo Slackwax kann man getrost als professionell bezeichnen. Vor allem, was die Vermarktung anbelangt.

Do You Have Love For Humankind?

Bittles‘ Magazine

You know the way it’s fashionable right now for bands and female singer-songwriters to market themselves as ›delightfully kooky‹? They’re all »look at me. I have flowers in my hair! Aren’t I crazy?« I will not name and shame right now, yet when you listen to their songs you can’t help but think that the plan was »Ok. So, my music is pretty derivative and weak. But if I act like I am awfully quirky then maybe people won’t realise just how bland I really am«. Somehow the eccentricity of these bands is always safe and insipid while they create the type of music that is usually so banal they are the aural equivalent of daytime TV. By JOHN BITTLES

Ned’s Atomic Dustbin: When Killing Your Television Was Still An Option

Bittles‘ Magazine

It’s amazing how an album or song can come to represent a year, or a period of your life so completely that simply listening to it again is enough to take you right back to that time. Bryan Adams that eminent social historian from Canada ably documented this phenomenon of wistful nostalgia with his treatise Summer of 69. One particular record that has this hair-raising effect on me is God Fodder by the awfully named but really rather good Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, (or The Neds as they were rather affectionately known back in the day). Every-time I hear those jangly guitars, and freaky lyrics I am immediately back in those glorious days of 1991 when I would listen to the album repeatedly in my dark and lonely room. By JOHN BITTLES

Retrofuturisten und Pop-Pflänzchen

Musik | Toms Plattencheck

Als die vier Mädels von CSS 2006 mit Cansei der sexy debütierten, war die Begeisterung groß. Irgendwie schien ihr Elektropop gerade wegen einer sympathischen Prise trashigem Dilettantismus den Nerv zu treffen. Als sexy, schräg und jede Menge Lofi Charme versprühend galten CSS, deren Sound gar eine Prise Punk attestiert wurde.

Music for Voyeurs

Bittles‘ Magazine

With the world of music still reeling from the new Daft Punk album it’s hard to believe that there’s loads of great new music out there desperately vying to be heard. With all the hype about this release you could easily come to the conclusion that all people want is a load of regurgitated pop-disco crap. Hopefully that is not the case and there will be many who’ll be excited at the mountain of fantastic new releases coming out this month. Boards of Canada, Gold Panda, Jagwar Ma, Lust For Youth and loads more are hitting us with epic sets that renew ones faith in loud guitars and crushing beats. By JOHN BITTLES

Dilettanten und Enthusiasten

Musik | Toms Plattencheck

Das 2010er Debütalbum von Siriusmo wurde unter anderem mit »Daft Punk meets Aphex Twin« umschrieben. Das Zweitwerk macht eine Kurzbeschreibung fast unmöglich, es ist der klassische Fall einer bunten Tüte.
