CFCF - Aaliyah remix

CFCF is a producer and dj Mike Silver from Montreal Canada, he makes a kind of chillwave electro remix world of dragged R&B and stuff, he's remixed Health and people.. and got remixed by a bunch of people too. Puts me a bit in mind of a less duby Babe Rainbow.. I dunno its all good, This is more about the stuff I found on his Soundcloud page, check these two remixes out, both free to download. Always nice to have an Aaliyah thing going on.
Also check the Tumblr for some nice fogged out nature action.

Michael Jordan Pog

I'm very confused by Michael Jordan Pog.. this is some great 2011 shit, all pop and R&B dragged and screwed with, all with 3D artwork, rainbow pastels and embossed fonts! But with a strangely over obsession with Michael Jordan, like loads of videos images etc. Brilliant! Check the Tumblr and go to Bandcamp to download each epic track for a dollar each!

O.O.O.

The blurb reads:
O.O.O. represents an attempt to capture the sound of both terror and laughter simultaneously. Ideally, my music should be heard through quality headphones."
O.O.O. has quite an annoying name but quite a nice sound, Witch House 2010 style, intense and noise filled horror score stuff noise and ambients, all right but limited as to where it can go I guess. O.O.O. is from Sowerby Bridge near Halifax, so another UK based Witchian noise maker.
This artist has a free EP to download called Losing Your Way. Get it here.
There is also an album;'ignis-fatuus' out now on CD-R (ltd edition). It's released by Frozen Tendril Records & can be bought here.
These two tracks below are my favourites:
ΔKIKΔ by O.O.O.
Slugs by O.O.O.

Medium Death Kick.

Medium Death Kick are from Nottingham and are the result of a collaboration between Andy Gibson and Siobhan Lynch; the two began to collaborate in early 2010. In late summer, they met their drummer Lee at a Future of the Left gig, and by the end of the evening MDK was a three-piece. The sound and ideas of the band all culminated when the finished album was recorded with instruments and live drums at the band's homes over a period of four weeks between November and December 2010.
The album '100 Hand Slap' is now available on itunes and Amazon for £5. As you can see they have also made a video for their song Mermaids.

Then go download the ☥ CULT ☥ ANNIVERSARY MIX created by †een wi†ch for the 1 year anniversary of The Ratcatchers monthly party at the Berlin nightclub in Chicago that's happened last night. (Facebook event here.) Go to the next one if you live nearby! ☥ CULT ☥ ANNIVERSARY MIX by †een wi†ch

Pictureplane, free soundcloud tracks.

Hey there are some new Pictureplane free Soundcloud downloads!
The "New Mind (Teengirl Fantasy Wide Open Edit) HEAVY LIMIT" track is immense, total dance floor killer"More House less Witch" to quote Gucci Goth on this.
The Thieves Like Us track is also a great spaced out, low-res ear turner, an overdriven beat bashing, high end rinsing needle of a track, and the Rainbow Arabia one is just intense and insistent, throbbing along like a blind dudes night time joy ride through the markets of Marrakesh.

WOLF FEET

Wolf Feet might be a Blackbird Blackbird side project but I'm just not sure, it feels like it. He posted a link to this Bandcamp page last night on twitter and I cant find any other info.
Labelled as Freak-Folk/Psych-Folk/Weird San Fransisco.. and its exactly that, totally brilliant and beautiful and old fashioned sounding, the only give away is the chillwave-ish beat sounds that come in half way through.
Go download it for free from the Bandcamp page.

CREEP 'Days' featuring Romy Madley-Croft (Official Video)

Its part Witch House Creep part minimal synth step ala The XX feel and this video is just fucking tops! First big-ish budget Witch House piece.. bigger than Salem for sure!

Audrey Hørne -free album "Winter"

I don't know much about Audrey Hørne other than that's not his real name..
This is some dubby epic Witch House shit, synthy and buzzy and dancey if you happen to be wrecked!
The album "Winter" (recorded, produced, mixed & mastered in Ramsey, NJ & Philadelphia, PA) is going to be released on tape around mid February.
Until then you can download it for free from Soundcloud.
There is also possibly on a EP coming in the summer.

Winter by Audrey Hørne

1980s Rave Flyers!

A few weeks ago I posted a link to "Six thousand, six hundred and thirty early '90s rave mixtapes" and now here is another archive, this time of hundreds of images of early Rave Flyers from '88 to '89! These things are hilarious, loads of hand drawn invites to real early stuff, so funny and maybe a total mine for graphic designers/promoters wanting to come up with some early 90s psychedelic trance styles. The site is soooooo old and shit but that's why it's good or not but it also has tons of links to more galleries here.

General Alcohol's First Mixtape "4 big girls"

General Alcohol have just finished their first mixtape, called "4 big girls" it's available to download for free from their Bandcamp page. Though they call it a mixtape this is a real screwed with thing and I don't recognise any tracks, (except of course track 3, Forgot About Dre!) also it is divided into individual tracks which I always like in a "mixtape"
This is a weird and wonderful Witch House sound all scrambled noise and samples and repeats and confusion but heady and powerful at the same time, Ambient and trip hop'y and grinding chillwave through the wrong end of a crack pipe, perhaps we can call it "chillum wave" great stuff.

Fl▲sh$i†

Fl▲sh$i† is an artist from Madrid Spain making a lot of music that resides in the dark electronica vein that is Witch House. Dancey, occult and noise filled, slow and moody tracks but also ravey gothic ones too at times upbeat in tempo not in mood, doom laden but not heavy. This is someone prolifically producing and evolving, sampling up everyone in a zeitgiesty way and twisting dragging and eroding the sounds into a creatively special thing. At points peaceful night time Chillwave for zombie lovers swimming by the light of the full moon then at other points heady tripped out adventures in sound through dark tunnels beneath the forest, the taste of metal on your tongue and the buzz of flies in your ears. This is pagan music for future children. I want to listen to this by torch light naked in the forest android wolves passing in the shadows, the toll of the midnight bell bleeping from the Google monastery high up on the hill. The smell of the olive trees drifting on the hot breeze, the buzz of robotic cicadas tirelessly recording the ambient sounds of the night.
As well as having a great well rounded sound and some really nice production values (no one could label this lo-fi) Fl▲sh$i† also has a nice lot of vocals mixed into his tracks, this isn’t just another Witch house bedroom dj putting together a few remixes, this is well thought out.
Go download everything from his Soundcloud page now.

Light Asylum - Dark Allies video.

Dark Allies - Light Asylum from Grant Worth on Vimeo.

I'm starting to really like Light Asylum, its Electroclash, Witch House, ghetto gothic stuff, its all dark electro with huge Annie Lennox style vocals, its spot on upbeat dark shit, its just damn good. If I'm not dancing to this in a club by the end of 2011 then shit has taken a serious turn for Hell and not in a good way, damn this track needs to just go on repeat! Play till the end. Listen, see, believe!

Hawkwind impersonate Salem and MSV.



A classic Hawkwind performance here but don't you think the dancer looks and acts straight out of a Mater Suspiria Vision show and doesn't Lemmy bare a more than striking resemblance to Jack out of Salem! This is some 1970s Witch House time travel shit, communing with the dead from the future through speed and lsd. An ironic performance by future goth hipsters travelling back in time to secretly impersonate a band, probably for some arcane reason involving food stamps or spare Mac Book Air battery. (Better quality video here.)

New okkvlt shit from norfeast U.S!

Cold War are new Witch House/Zombie Rave peoples from somewhere like Philadelphia just two guys one rapping the other producing/chopping/dragging/editing, who are turning out good drag remixs of songs you might well have wanted to hear remixed in this way, for example: Madonna's "Like A Prayer" (they spell it, lYk€ Δ prΔY€r) or Foreigners "I Want To Know What Love Is (spelled ,ΚnΦЩ ЩᾞΔT LΦ∇Ξ Ἷ§) They only started a month ago and are thinking about doing some shows this summer. All their tracks are free downloads from their Soundcloud.

Ricky Eat Acid - Like I Was Floating

Ricky Eat Acid has a new EP out called Like I Was Floating and is available from the Bandcamp page for free! Its a wonderful darker, more mellow, ambient piece, spacey and warm and with, as he puts it himself, "the wonderful Rachel Levy from Kiss Kiss Fantastic (and a host of other bands) providing some of the vocals." This is such blissful dreamy stuff, warm summer nights camping by the fire drifting in a haze filled memory out across the bay, fireflies for eyes and dolphins for bodies.
Go get it now! And while you are there on his Bandcamp check out all the other great EPs as well!!

Hopefully to be completed by March. The "promo" picture for this is too the left!

Wtchmn ❖ has two new free tracks!

seemed to be an artist that started off as "loving tribute to Salem" but has now kind of gone and become a really good band making the kind of Witch House sounds that will shape it in 2011. Maybe at pains to not categorise him or herself totally in the Witch House bracket ❖'s music is tagged on Bandcamp (where you can download two amazing EPs for free) as "celtic, earthrave, progressive trance, and Earth" I love it! I wish I was in a band where I could reply to someone "Earth" when they ask what kind of music it is make! Having blogged about ❖ before I thought I should check his site out again and low and behold now there is a Soundcloud page with two new songs, "bloobrryærsmyth" and "lickthwtch" both free to download! I also notice that maybe ❖ is also pronounced Wtchmn as that seem to be the URL similarity between all the different sites!

Blissed Out

Blissed Out have an awesome LP coming called 3MPIRE §†Å†3 to be released by Amdiscs on February 1st, they sent me the closing track “//MYRTL3//WYCKØFF//” off of the LP and its here to download for free.
Its a swirling doom laden monster of wheeling organ and nervous beats that drops a hard thumping rhythm amidst the sampled car alarms and lamented vocals, just when you least expect, just when you dont think it's not gonna happen there it is.. blam a pounding beat that lifts this track into some other kind of territory entirely before dropping back into a muddied hell of noise. Brilliant!

Alpha Couple - Subject: Yup from I'm Trying I'm Trying I'm Trying on Vimeo.

This is the first official video for Alpha Couple who I blogged about a month ago here.
A great video piece all made from stills that really captures the feel of the music and the mood of the band.

General Alcohol!

Russian Witch House from General Alcohol today! This is difficult noise stuff with drag remixes cut and paste super sampling, tons of MSV style echo and repeat, epic slow dance moods and heavy glue-head beats slooooow and foggy. General Alcohol describes it as "Electro Robbery". Its intense uneasy listening, audio paranoia and looping bad trips!
But its good and all free to download from the Soundcloud page.

Vittorio Mazzoni - Islands (I Forgot)

"Until now men have merely complied with a scheme to transform the world. Today, the task is to make the system compliant with the transformation of the world."So says the videos quote!
Proper amazing track from Italy by Vittorio Mazzoni with a cut up film video, (dont Google the name you just get some weird metal dudes Myspace!) This is amazing and drifty and a great middle ground between Mater Suspiria Vision style Witch House and summery Chillwave sounds.

GR†LLGR†LL - I'm Gonna Dress In Black

GR†LLGR†LL has gone and released a brilliant cover of a the classic 60s gothic soul garage track called I'm Gonna Dress In Black by the band Them which was Van Morrisons first project.
Check the GR†LLGR†LL track below which slows things down but is also a faithful cover, ending up sounding incredibly like the neo-folk stylings of King Dude!! A brilliant new angle for GR†LLGR†LL to take musically, very exciting... only thing is it says this was released last June!! How did I miss this!!?? How??!!
Download the track for free from the Bandcamp page!

The Dandelion Council - Betamax Heartsong

This is a nice simple post with a free download. The Dandelion Council is Pip Craighead who describes his music as Christian Chillwave and electronic folk! So me including it on this blog with the Christian tag is kinda hilarious! The album is called Betamax Heartsong and is available to download from Bandcamp. This is really nice dark chillwave, spacey and nocturnal, ambient and epic, with some very beautiful songs! Really sumptuous sounding and enveloping!
Pip describes his thought process behind the album thus: "Suburbs under stars, kids running around in the woods, the San Fernando Valley, Neil Young's sloppy vocals, meeting up before school in a forested park, wind in eucalyptus trees, hiding under the covers, North America in the 1980s, flying coast to coast in a light aircraft at night, Cheyenne Mountain, Japan Airlines, neon power grids, the threat of nuclear war in the late 20th century, Serra do Cristal, the Coming of Spring, the recurrent human longing for the Golden Age, the fading of nations, exploring caves, mines, fields, tract houses; the Lord."

Green Door Store opening night revelry!

Green Door Store opening night party. from fokka wolfe on Vimeo.

My view of the opening night at Brighton's hottest new venue the Green Door Store. I got very drunk and stumbled about and enjoyed it all immensely and just shot some random footage, but its enjoyable and informative none the less..
Featuring the track Why by the ever awesome La La Vasquez off of their latest 7" available from M'lady records. And playing us out amidst chaotic crowd surfing and general merry making is the final band of the night Cold Pumas.

Russian Graveyard Disco from KℜΞϟ✞

Russian Witch House today from KℜΞϟ✞ who is one of those artist just grazing the edge of the internet with a Soundcloud page and nothing else. The tagline under his symbol heavy name is "Ɯalk †he Ƥath ʘf Şʘrrʘw" This is brilliant Zombie Rave stuff all slow and heavy and drugged out, special K pop for those in a giant hole, lost in the wastelands of Siberia, crows pecking at your bones! I say Zombie Rave but quite a lot of these tracks remix non rave stuff, there are quite a few distorted guitars in there! All the tracks are remixes and all are of Russian bands.
There is also a Zombie Rave Mix up there called V/A - Ḡraveyard Ðisco vol.1 (ℜussian Ȝombie ℜave ℳix by ✞) which is the only thing you can download but it wont embed on the blog! Get it its good!

MATER SUSPIRIA VISION feat. SCOUT KLAS - The Labyrinths of Venice (2011) from Mater Suspiria Vision on Vimeo.

First video for 2011 from MATER SUSPIRIA VISION Vinyl LP “Inverted Triangle I” to be released in early 2011 on Clan Destine/Phantasma Disques.

Vortex Rikers - Wake Up And Smell the Ashes.

There's a new Vortex Rikers EP out on AMDISCS called "wake up and smell the ashes" a six track masterpiece.
This German duo are steadily picking up the pace with a great visual side to their work and releases that are inspiringly doomy, all great dark electro ambience and apocalyptic down beat!

New $LØW HE▲D tracks!

Want new $LØW HE▲D tracks!?Hell yeah!
First up is a quiet beautiful track called "BLURRY M3ADOW" a proper late night drift off track that sparkles and glints as it drifts down stream amidst Japanese cherry blossoms.
The second track is a twenty minute mix called "December MiniMix 4 U" that you can download and is an epic winter drag and chopped mix of ghostly R&b and droning snow fall.
Next we have a track called "Animal Bones (Haintcircle)" which is a slow alien soul track like seeing Barry White fall on top of you in slow motion while he pulls of his mask revealing the face of a Grey beneath!
Finally we have //Pal3 a$ M00nli9ht// a dreamy dancey number that sounds like something that could have fallen off the b.side of an Orbital release. All good! And all to be downloaded from the Soundcloud page.
Also check out $LØW HE▲D's Tumblr.

Religious To Damn - Drifter

Religious to Damn "Drifter" Music Video from Jason Akira Somma on Vimeo.

New video for Blackbird Blackbird's Heartbeat!

Blackbird Blackbird - "Heartbeat" from Amanda & Erik on Vimeo.

✝ DE△D VIRGIN ✝ - Anxieties

For some reason I waited on blogging the latest ✝ DE△D VIRGIN ✝ release called Anxieties insane as that is! Its quite a change from the last EP setting itself up as a brilliant dancey Witch House beat filled affair, something more akin to old Warp label stuff but through the filter of modern aesthetics. Sometimes its fast and breaky at other points really dubstep and evil, more a dark dance release than a slow drag thing. Darkwave but urbanised, a drum and bass take on Suspiria. Ghetto gothic. Doomstep.


You can buy it from his Bandcamp page at the "name your price" or as he includes the link on that page you can just go get it from mediafire here.

MC Fashion live!

MC Fashion @ The Prince Albert from fokka wolfe on Vimeo.

Back after a 6 month hiatus and MC Fashion slays it!
Playing at Born To Lose upstairs at The Prince Albert in mid December.

FOOD S†ΔMPS

A boy girl duo from Brooklyn FOOD S†ΔMPS peg themselves as recession pop, and though it is all a little hip in approach its very much some great music, dark and spacey and a little Witchian but mainly a bit synthy and post electro clash pop dragged through the back rooms of music stores and garage band practice spaces. Because of where they're from comparisons to Sleigh Bells will come and do but they are much much less agro and more like late era Kills with more pop sensibility. Good stuff, lo-fi drum machine modern punks.
Their song I Am Jack's Nightlight is available for free from their bandcamp page and is well worth downloading.

I Phone video glitch of Crystal Castles remix!



This is a real thing! Uploaded to You Tube by friend, fellow Brightonian and member of The Mekano Set, Milk. Love the glitch!
"Video straight from an iPhone with a broken camera. Looks like old computer graphics but it's just the iPhone, no filters etc. Music is Crystal Castles Vietnam with a bit of The Mekano Set added."

EUROPEAN WI†CHCRAFT ASSOCIATION

Haunted Cassette Tapes are a great little Witch House record label that I wrote about before Xmas on the Mishka Bloglin. They released a mixtape called THE EUROPEAN WI†CHCRAFT ASSOCIATION from a collective of people from Romania, Germany and Belgium. Some are visual artists, some are musicians and the mixtape features dragged eurohouse and trance but it was limited to only 15 copies and so is now all gone! Though you can listen to all of it here! Enjoy!

six thousand, six hundred and thirty early '90s rave mixtapes.

If you like 90s rave mixtapes, like you know real proper ones from the actual 90s not ones done now then head over to this Mediafire folderto download thousands (yes thousands, 6630 to be exact!) of mixes!! All put up there by someone called Baztheacidman. Its just tons and tons of dj sets and mixtapes, most so obscure you would have had to be the dj yourself to know who they are by! And everything is mostly very early 90s! Brilliant and almost too much to be able to decide what you want to listen to! Its around 9 months worth of continuous raving!!
This is the link.

Signs of Cthulhu..
















New Years day...
I found this on my way home this morning on the pavement outside Al Duompo Pizzeria.
If ever there was a sign of Cthulhu this surely is it! Does the Pizzeria have shadowy associations to undersea worlds, ancient gods and secret societies?

Then when I got home these two pictures were the first that greeted me on Tumblr!
Something is afoot!















Here are two Light Asylum tracks to play the day out with:
