  • The story of Ricardo Villalobos – the legend, the artist (Part 3)

  • One should think of Ricardo Villalobos's career without taking into account the numerous artists he has influenced over the years and the effect he had on the electronic music spectrum. As the Chilean-born, Berlin-based producer released more and more tracks - all conforming to the typical Villalobos style - and as he became more of a powerhouse in the underground electronic industry, plenty of[...]
  • The story of Ricardo Villalobos – the legend, the artist (Part 2)

  • The Chilean-born German artist began making electronic music in the late 80s. From a very young age he has been a big fan of Depeche Mode, following their tours around Europe to listen to them. His style is so unique, it is almost an unspoken tradition for his tracks to douns different than the ones of other producers. We all know his long remixes or edits, but the true merits of his art are ob[...]
  • The story of Ricardo Villalobos - the legend, the artist (Part 1)

  • There's basically no way each and every one of you reading this article has never danced, boogied or at least shook their bodies on a Villalobos track. We simply can't believe that, the man is a living legend. Probably one of the most notorious artists of the electronic genre, his story is filled with excentric details that - alltogether - create this unique portrait of an artist who was influence[...]
  • All hail the great Jeff Mills - the undisputed king of techno music

  • Jeff Mills is undoubtedly one of the founding fathers of techno music. Starting out as radio DJ the Wizard on Detroit’s WJLB before teaming up with Anthony Srock in the late ’80s to form the industrial inspired Final Cut project, Mills met former Parliament bassist “Mad” Mike Banks. The two hit it off and soon the Underground Resistance studios came into being, fusing Banks’ keyboard and synth col[...]
  • Ro-minimal, the sound of the Romanian underground

  • When learning about electronic music, one must constantly dig deeper in order to find the sub-genres that collect crowds of thirsty fans all over the planet. Ro-minimal has an interesting story, making it our very own underground electronic music sub-genre. When it first appeared, minimal was something like nothing people have heard before, although it was still house and techno, thus something ex[...]
  • The complex history of minimal as a music genre 

  • Even though Simon Reynolds was using “minimal” as early as 1992 to describe Derrick May, minimal as a genre didn’t really come along until the mid-’90s. The term is used by anyone who listens to something that is electronic, not techno, not house, but somewhere in between. And even if that is a large space from which to choose just a name, it just goes to show that the constant evolution o[...]

  • Digging for that perfect vinyl sound (II)

  • Digging for that perfect vinyl sound (I)

  • Se spune că dacă iubești cu adevărat muzica, o asculți în format vinyl. Părea că vinilurile au devenit învechite odată cu apariția casetelor audio și, mai apoi, a audio cd-urilor. Păreau atât de uitate, încât mulți considerau că ascultatul muzicii în acest format implică mai degrabă snobism decât simplă apreciere a sunetului clar, original, al muzicii. Trăim vremuri în care gratificarea instant[...]
