tl:dr Facekick

Die Mahuumbar verwandelt sich für die Dauer des Abends in einen ernsthaften, voll funktionsfähigen Techno-Club (= musikalischen Darkroom für außergewöhnliche Klangfreuden). Die PA (gemietet von DKA) ist an sich schon eine technische Waffe (7.000 Watt, 15″ Bassteile die runtergehen bis 37 Hertz) und wird extra für die Location klangoptimiert. Wer bei der Releaseparty zu JOIX’ Album “Random Control” am 11. Mai da war, weiß, dass der Sound ohne Übertreibung qualitativ in der obersten Liga rangiert…

Der Raum wird wieder komplett umgestaltet, aufwendig schallgedämmt und für bestmöglichen Raumklang vermessen und präpariert. Die Anlage wird dann wieder von ihrem Erbauer/Besitzer/Verleiher Daniel Kiefer höchstpersönlich auf die akustischen Gegebenheiten vor Ort ausgerichtet und für optimale Schallverteilung feinabgestimmt, noch näher an Perfektion dran als beim ersten Mal. Zudem geht der Signalweg von Nadeln/Tonabnehmern/Plattenspielern/Sequencer über Mixer und PA bis hin zu den Boxen und Lautsprechern nur durch hochwertige, funktionale Komponenten (keine Billiglösungen).

Kompetente leistungswillige Artists (zusammen über hundert Gigs, zehntausende Kilometer Bookingreisen quer durch Europa und 48 Jahre Erfahrung mit Musikperformance und Party-Organisation) geben mit der Summe ihrer Erfahrungen ihr Bestes, ohne Star-Allüren, aber mit Leidenschaft.

Auch der Securitymensch ist kein seelisch labiler Prügelcop, der seine Macht missbraucht und die Besucher gängelt, sondern eine anständig entlohnte, professionelle und deswegen für den Job geeignete, Ruhe ausstrahlende Respektperson am Eingang.

Und: spätnachtliche Gratis-Obstkiste, keine MCs, kein Dresscode, free hat.

Die gesamte Veranstaltung ist (abgesehen vom Gentränkeverkauf seitens der Mahuumbar) frei von kommerziellen Interessen und konzentriert sich voll auf Musik und Qualität.

Warum? Weil wir Nerds und Technohippies sind:
- ein Producer, der mit einem eigenhändig zusammengestellten komplexen analogen Modular-Synthesizer und analogem Sequencing kompromissfrei eigenständigen, kraftvollen Techno produziert und live performt
- ein DJ, der seine Lehre bei Drum & Bass abgeschlossen und ein mehrjähriges Praktikum im Turntablismus gemacht hat und seitdem Bass Music zunehmend interdisziplinär studiert & mixt
- ein Grafiktalent und sechsarmiges Organisationsmonster (der Mann im Hintergrund)

Wir mögen verschiedene Spielarten von “Bass Music” (Techno, Elektro/Techhouse, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Nu Skool Breaks, Hopstep, Fartstep..) und haben manchmal sehr unterschiedliche Vorlieben, aber wir alle wollen tanzen und teilen hohe technische und inhaltliche Ansprüche an Musikperformances und Clubkultur.

Wir wollen hochwertigen, nachhaltigen Hedonismus in einer politisch, sozial und kulturell sinnvollen Struktur. Unsere Basslabor-Party am 22.06.2012 ist ein gemeinsamer Versuch eines Weges zum Ausgang aus der auch musikalischen selbstverschuldeten Unmündigkeit. Wir glauben nicht an den Veranstaltermessias und bemühen uns selbst (mit synergetisch vereinten Kräften), hier und jetzt in Mannheim im Sommerloch 2012, um die Verwirklichung einer über Promolügen hinausgehenden, konkreten Alternative zu musikalischen Monokulturen mit spätkapitalistischer Atmosphäre und Ohrenkrebs-Sound.

Wir setzen uns mit diesem Projekt sehr hohe Massstäbe. Alle diejenigen, die Bass, Techno, Drum & Bass und technoides lieben, aber nicht auf einen einzigen Musikstil festgefahren sind wie ein Priester auf seine Bibel, sind herzlichst eingeladen, an diesem besonderen Abend die “3 Elements of Tech Hop” mit uns zu feiern:
Friedliches Beisammensein, musikalische Evolution und therapeutischer Ausdruckstanz mit Stimmübungen. In greifbarem Bass schwimmen, das Tanzbein schwingen und die Beats den Nebel aus dem Kopf atmen lassen.

Ein Bigup dafür geht an uns selbst, Yusuf von der Mauumbar, den PA-König Daniel Kiefer und die zahlreichen Helfer… Die Idealisten, ohne die außer Kompromissen gar nichts ginge, die es durch Rücknahme ihres Egos überhaupt erst möglich machen, trotz der “Sachzwänge” und der allgemein gesellschaftlich angespannten, trotz der offiziellen Aufschwungspropaganda auf allen Ebenen von wachsender Armut/Massenarbeitslosigkeit, Rezession und gnadenlosem neoliberalem Finanz-/Konkurrenzdruck geprägten Situation so etwas auf die Beine zu stellen: Eine Clubveranstaltung, die wir selbst besuchen wollen würden und uns leisten könnten, frei von Zugeständnissen an Qualität und mit einem erschwinglichen Eintrittspreis von 5 Euro.

Kurz: Dank der selbstlosen, idealistischen Unterstützung der Beteiligten können wir trotz Konkurrenzdruck auf dem Veranstaltungsmarkt ein hochwertiges Produkt (guten Sound) exklusiv zum absoluten Dumpingpreis anbieten, deutlich billiger aber trotzdem oberhalb des Qualitätsniveaus, das derzeit in Mannheim bei vergleichbaren Veranstaltungen üblich ist.

Wenn wir dabei Gewinn machen, dann geht der an das Mohawk. Das ist eine nichtkommerzielle Location in der Industriestraße (direkt neben dem Siebener), die seit 2010 von Helfern des PirArt (Förderverein für Kunst und Kultur e.V.) komplett ehrenamtlich mit DIY-Strategien getragen wird und dem Underground über ein Jahr lang fast jede Woche Clubveranstaltungen, Konzerte und andere schöne Dinge ermöglicht hat, für die der Kulturfinanzmarktstandort Mannheim sonst wenig bis keinen Platz bietet. Aktuell ist das Mohawk durch Bauauflagen bedroht und kann seinerseits verstärkt Unterstützung gebrauchen, und wurde kürzlich mit dem 3. Mannheimer Brückenaward ausgezeichnet.

Wenn dieser Testballon am 22. Juni funktioniert (und den Break-Even-Point erreicht oder wenigstens nicht massiv unterschreitet), dann wird eine monatliche Partyreihe nach dem gleichen Schema angepeilt, die das hohe Qualitätsniveau auf Dauer hält, Impulse setzt und sich künstlerisch und inhaltlich frei entwickelt und vernetzt.

Vorraussetzung wäre die Deckung der Fixkosten von knapp 500 Euro für Anlage, Flyer, Türsteher, Licht, Transportfahrten, Schalldämmungs-Material etc (plus Gage für Gast-DJs). Bis auf den Türsteher (und das Barpersonal der Location) arbeiten alle Beteiligten (inklusive Daniel Kiefer) ehrenamtlich an dem Projekt, auch die internen DJs bekommen nur Benzingeld. Wir brauchen deswegen nur knapp 100 zahlende Gäste bei 5 Euro Eintritt. Das scheint nicht komplett utopisch, insofern gibt es Grund zur Hoffnung. Aber wie immer entscheidet das Publikum, ob es kommt oder nicht… Ihr seid Anonymous, wir reden mit Euch!

07.06.2012: “Hans im Glück @ Basskantine | SOHO-CLUB / Mannheim”

Line Up:
DJ Hans | Wurst-Crew / Vorderpalz
Faironne | Baesse.de / Basskantine
MC Kryptomedic | 2R2E / Spinning Time

Hans im Glück – wer kennt nicht das Märchen der Gebrüder Grimm, handelnd von dem
Typen der in die grosse weite Welt auszog um irgendwie sein Ding zu machen. So ist
es auch in diesem Falle, denn ‘DJ Hans’ aus der Voderpalz wird das Wagnis auf sich nehmen,
um der Metropole Mannheim einen Besuch abzustatten.
Es drängt sich hier unmittelbar die berechtigte Frage auf, mit was der Mann aus dem bisher
wenig erschlossenen Teil des europäischen Kontinents aufwarten wird. Neurofunk der deepen
Art steht auf der Tagesordnung, und man kann es kaum fassen, selbst in diese Region ist
diese Spielart von Drum n’ Bass vorgedrungen, trotz aller im Weg stehenden Gebirgsmassive,
von Raubtieren überbevölkerten Tundren, reissenden Flussläufen und feindlich gesinnten sowie
kannibalistisch veranlagten Eingeborenenstämmen usw. :o )
Genug dumm geredet, Freunde von Neurofunk werden an diesem Abend auf ihre Kosten kommen:

Senseless / A Night Full Of Bass
It’s all about Drum N Bass & Breakbeats – all night long!

Mainfloor: Liquid Funk, Intelligent Drum & Bass and more
Them & Us (Killa Kela & Ami Carmine)
Franksen (KIB / Sidechain / You FM, Frankfurt)
Monophonic (Suite Resident, Hamburg)

New.Space: T3K Recordings welcomes AUDIOPHILEZ
Budoka & DJ Malice (Audiophilez, Darmstadt)
Kaiza (T3K Recordings, Mannheim)
The Sickbrotherz (Therapy Sessions, Mannheim)

Die Senseless-Party geht in die 4. Runde. Headliner sind diesmal der Beatbox-Weltmeister Killa Kela, der mit seiner Djane Ami Carmine wieder zu Gast in der Suite ist. Die beiden haben bei der 2. Senseless-Party die Hütte abgerissen. Unterstützt werden sie von den „Senseless-Residents“ Franksen und Monophonic.

Im New.Space ist Mefjus aus Österreich der Headliner und seine Sets sprühen nur so vor feinstem Neurofunk. Der Mann startet gerade derbe durch: Releases auf dem Digital-Ableger von Neosignal (das Label von Phace & Misanthrop), dem Imprint von Jade (Eat Brain Recordings) welches zwei Collabs mit den ebenfalls gerade mächtig angesagten Leipzigern Neonlight featured, ausserdem Veröffentlichungen auf Bad Taste Recordings, Rise Audio, Trust In Music, Citrus Recordings, Disturbed und und und. Gastgeber Kaiza aus dem Hause T3K Recordings wird ebenfalls einiges auf den Dancefloor abfeuern. Das wird heftig! Zudem wird das Ganze von den Sickbrotherz abgerundet. You know what to expect.

ACHTUNG!!! ÄNDERUNG DES LINEUPS:
Aufgrund eines Missverständnisses kann Mefjus dieses Mal nicht am Start sein. Wir bedauern dies sehr, aber werden dennoch eine gediegene Party reissen.
Als Ersatz werden Budoka und DJ Malice von der Audiophilez-Crew aus Darmstadt den 2. Floor beschallen. Die Mitbegründer von Tilt-Recordings sind keine Unbekannten und haben sich auch als Phishmaol Cru einen Namen gemacht. Ihre Audiophilez-Partyreihe in verschiedenen Locations in und um Darmstadt war erfolgreich und auch ihre Produktionen (check http://soundcloud.com/audiophilez-1 bzw http://soundcloud.com/srbe/budoka-it-hurtz) sind hochwertig. Gute Voraussetzungen also für eine gelungene Nacht.

http://djmix5000.wordpress.com

The main purpose of this party is the celebration of Bass Music and analogue DJ culture. It will take place in a relatively small, intimate location named “Der Blaue Raum” on the estate of an alternative living community. The prices for drinks will be unusually low, the athmosphere friendly, the basslines rolling and the selection proper. Ravers, hippies, nerds and actual music lovers welcome.

The location also has a second floor/room, basically for chilling & smoking, and the music here will be selected by DJ Youtube and MC Mouseclick (this is where your spouses’ crappy song requests will be honoured).


Following the free vinyl giveaway and the vinyl tunes downloads, here is the rest of the tunes released commercially via Tilt-Recordings – all the T-Files releases are now online as free 320′mp3:

DJ HEKTIK ist ein Exot. Fernab des für Mannheim typischen UK-DJ-Massen-Jump-Up-Raves versuchte er dem dortigen Publikum Einblick in die deepen und technoiden Spielarten unseres Genres zu gewähren. Bereits seit mehr als 10 Jahren arbeitet er mit herausragenden DJ-Skills, innovativen Sets, seiner eigenen (wöchentlichen!) Radiosendung und der Gründung seiner Labels “Tilt” Recordings und “T-Free” daran, den Leuten seine Auffassung des Drum and Bass näher zu bringen. Obwohl offiziell schon “in Rente”, wird er an diesem Abend eines seiner letzten DJ Sets in der Öffentlichkeit zum Besten geben.

Support gibt es von 12 INCH KID aus von der EBL Crew aus Jena. Auch er ist bereits seit weit mehr als 10 Jahren in der Szene aktiv und organsierte schon 2003 die EBL Sessions im Jenaer Rosenkeller, die sich zu einer festen Institution im Thüringer DnB entwickelt haben. Bewaffnet mit deep, atmospheric, technoid & funky Drum and Bass, wird er einige vergessene Bretter “back 4 the floor” bringen.

Abgerundet wird der Abend durch STEREO & NEUROTON von der Nadeltrauma Crew, die sich mit dem Booking des hektischen Mannheimers einen Traum erfüllen konnten und eines ihrer letzten gemeinsamen Sets für noch nicht absehbare Zeit spielen werden.

Fürs Auge gibt es Unterstützung von EBL FX aus Jena, deren Visuals sich in kurzer Zeit zum festen Bestandsteil der EBL Sessions entwickelt haben.

Here is a zip file (3 gigabytes) complete with all tunes released on T-FREE, the (offline-)homepage and some legendary interviews & articles:

–> T-FREE_all.zip

Edit:
There was a problem (zip file worked just fine before the upload but seemed corrupt (read: unpacking impossible) after the up- & download), but the link above is fixed now.


This LP concludes 6 years of T-FREE history and marks the end of all the label’s activities, parallel to the final shutdown of Tilt-Recordings.

Mad props to all artists involved on both labels!

Few more things are left to be adressed on this final occasion.

Over time, T-FREE has frequently been subject to discussions, provoking disagreement on all aspects: its musical orientation and range of varying sound quality from release to release, the public opinions and Internet behaviour of the labelmaker, the absence of artwork, the used form of presentation and the ideological fact of T-FREE being an anti-commercial netlabel. Two opposing opinions usually dominate these debates:

“puts some more established labels to shame”
(crystl_lake @ www.freak-recordings.com/community 2008-06)

“96% of the shit you put out is garbage”
(djc @ www.techno-dnb.com/forum 2008-06)

Regardless of reactions, T-FREE has always followed a certain sound/style (with few exceptions), aiming at DJs, not critics. This final release continues that label policy to the end. Some of the tunes are old, some brandnew, some re-released. As usually, they came directly from the producers’ computers without any additional mastering done on them. So they all have different mixdowns, loudness levels and sound characters.

Thus probably everybody will hate some tunes on this LP, but perhaps also everybody will like some tunes on it.

And hopefully this LP will stand worthy as a final release, after 184 tunes on 118 releases (plus these) in 6 years. The traffic statistics show that literally tens of thousands of people have downloded the releases (average circa 45,000). Some of the tunes have even cracked the 100,000 mark. T-FREE had a good run, brought a lot of music to many people and maybe even contributed to some Drum & Bass artist careers.

It was fun, inspiring and politically the right thing to do (from all three perspectives: before, during and after).

“Goodbye everybody!”

PS: A note for the haters. When your favourite bigname DJs play “dubplates” in their mixes, those also are unmastered tunes (from different artists) and they all sound differently.

PPS: Some quoteworthy thoughts about releasing older tunes and the general question of wether artists or audiences own works of art:

With all due respect to the artist(s), it’s kind of idiotic and egoic to not give people what they want, when no almost no effort is involved in distributing a track these days.. When you have fans who fucking dearly want something you made, there are only a few reasons why artists tend not to give them out, and only 2 of those legit.

1) Lost the file (mp3 or sequencer file, DAT tape (LOL) whatever) < -- legit

2) Doesn't want it to be released because they either hate it or thing it's 'beneath' them because their production value has improved over time. Somewhat understandable but ultimately unjustified and pretentious. Ego-based and too concerned about 'image'.

3) Some kind of record label stipulation or legal mangling <-- legit, not understandable, but legit

4) You get off on the fact that people who want something you created will never get it - then you're just a dick. Ultimate in pretension.

the rest of this and other “save the planet, kill yourself” issues can be found elswhere; don’t believe the hype!

Mav feat. Tyrah Morena – “Special Forces”
8:52 min mp3 (320 kbps, 20.3 mb) –> T-FREE-LP002_01__Mav_feat_Tyrah_Morena_-Special_Forces.mp3
Mav is a 20 degree black belt master of techy Athmospheric Drum & Bass. He was exposed to the broader Drum & Bass scene for the first time pretty much through the Armada Recordings launch incident in 2005. That label, planned and publically announced for well over 2 years, had advertised their first release as a 4×12″ LP including Mav’s “Ocean Phantom” among Noisia’s “Desolation” plus Teebee remix and tunes by Corrupt Souls, Desimal and Brain. The scene waited a long time for it with great anticipation and indeed “unprecedented hype.” The delay had already become a running gag when the LP was finally made available; exclusively through the Armada online shop and as a subscription series model. The label wanted to have people pay for the release, use this money to press the vinyl and then send it to the people who paid in first place. The shop script gave customers a timeframe of 6-8 weeks until delivery. 7 days after the shop opened, Teebee, a man always good for some action, made a public announcement about pulling back his remix from Armada for having not been paid until the deadline (and released it shortly after on Renegade Hardware with some different samples and entitled “The Force”). Customers were asking the label many questions and got few satisfactory answers back. Two months later the people who had bought into the subscription were given mp3s of the LP tunes (minus the Teebee remix) and offered refunds. Many of the customers downloaded the tunes instantly, many also chose to ask for the refund and some of them never got their money back. The label crew fell apart and the entire Armada bubble slowly collapsed, leaving behind one of the greatest dramas in Drum & Bass Internet History. Some excellent DOA threads can still be easily found with a search for the word “armada”. And some of the tunes (including Noisia’s otherwise unreleased techmospheric masterpiece “Desolation”) can still be downloaded here.
One of the great things about this label was the indirect promotion effect for involved artists, including Mav. “Ocean Phantom” ended up as his third tune on Fokuz Limited and he also left his mark on other labels, most notably ASC’s Covert Operations (incidentally a label that used a subscription model successfully). Mav’s tunes are a lasting influence, musically untouchable and as epic as the Armada fail was.
“Special Forces” was until now only on a mix-CD in a 2xCD joint album on Covert Operations and Warm Communications [COVWC-CD001] in 2003 and digitally available through Covert Operations, offline since 2009. Watch out for the reworked 2011 version on Mav’s forthcoming LP (!)

SKC – “Harbinger”
6:42 min mp3 (320 kbps, 15.4 mb) –> T-FREE-LP002_02__SKC_-Harbinger.mp3
This beautiful tune from SKC’ techy era had originally been planned for a release on DSCI4 [DSCI4007P] in 2003. But for unknown reasons it did not really make it to vinyl aside from some testpresses and was never released until now.

Materia – “Collision Domain”
7:20 min mp3 (320 kbps, 16.8 mb) –> T-FREE-LP002_03__Materia_-Collision_Domain.mp3
Materia kind of moved on to House and Techno over the past years but is continuingly putting out tunes, only in a different area. “Collision Domain” is one of his most beautiful older Drum & Bass tunes, originally released on Kinematic 320 [KIN320-017] in 2006.

Acid_Lab – “Photons”
5:18 min mp3 (320 kbps, 12.1 mb) –> T-FREE-LP002_04__Acid_Lab_-Photons.mp3
Since T-FREE-3EP026, Acid_Lab aka Kodama aka Parametric aka Chefrocker of the neo-oldschool Techstep (TM) movement has been heard on Cause 4 Concern, Basswerk, Variant Audio, Break-Fast Audio, Black Hoe, Golden Age, Fish, Internet, digitalGEWITTER, Urban Poetry and sYncoPathic.Recordings, plus he has made his vinyl debut on Alphacut [ACR 018]. He says goodbye to T-FREE with this laid back groove in classic tech fashion with a touch of modern Gridlok funk.

His sad, sad tale must not be told but quoted directly: "Born in the harsh mountains of Bulgaria to a family of coal miners, he had really tough childhood. One of his favorite things at this time was listening to stories about unicorns and fairies, sitting around the fire in the company of turkish truck drivers and gipsy prostitutes. After being beaten nearly to death by his father, the young soon-to-be musician decided to escape the mines and to went to the big city to become a glue inhaler or more commonly known as 'lepilar'. Once after being unable to find enough money to buy his favorite 'Kale', our young hero decided to steal an mp3 player from a car that was parked nearby. As soon as he broke the side window open, the alarm of the car turned on. Then something strange happened - he was fascinated by the magical sounds, and decided this was his destiny. And thus was born Broozy - The Defender of Car Alarm Music."
