Drum & Bass MegaRave @ MohawkBar (= Ex-MahuumBAR), Mannheim (Wegbeschreibung)

Der anstehende Drum & Bass Mega-Rave ist die Geburtstagsfeier unseres Vorstandsmitglieds Timeout, der an diesem Tag endlich volljärig wird und dann auch länger bleiben und ein Bier trinken darf. Zu dem Anlass konnten wir wieder eine Reihe exklusiver, erstklässliger UK-Headliner verpflichten:

DJ Skype (Drug Records) p2p DJ Zonk (Gringo Beets)

Pandora (Prochristian Rome)

…also staring: MC Sabber T (World Crime Family)

All diese 3,5 Headliner kommen, wie schon gesagt, aus Unterkrundingen (Verbandsgemeinde Dorfhausen) und rocken dort fett die Szene mit ihren multiplen Crews. Vor allem DJ Skype und DJ Zonk gehören zum klassischen Inventar der engelsachlischen Tanz- & Sportszene (“Jump Up”), seit sie mit ihren legendären Labels “Drug Records”, “Smooth Players” und “Peaceful Assembly” in die Analen der Junglemusik eingingen. Ihr Sound lässt kein Höschen trocken und kann nie nicht kopiert werden. Außerdem wird Pandora, die holde Jungfer und wahre first Lady der teutonischen DnB-Szene, mit ihren lieblichen Melodeien sanft unserem Trommelfell schmeicheln. Und MC Sabber T hat’s erfunden. Alle UK-Headliner, die wir für dieses Date gewinnen konnten, setzen sich über musikalische Stilgrenzen hinweg wie die echten Verbrecher über geltendes Natur-, Völker- und Menschenrecht.

Und diese belanglosen Resident-DJs hier beuten wir schamlos aus und verdienen uns blöd dabei:

Kaiza (Tilt, T3K, Fish, Subculture, Melting Pot, Citrus, Disturbed, Abducted, Celsius…)
…unbekannter Bedroom-Producer ohne Output und Style, der nur seine eigenen Tunes spielt.
Special Skills: “Performt” mit seinem Laptop, wie Livemau$, aka DJ Startknopf

Timeout (Wicked Headz)
…darf an diesem Tag auch mal ein bisschen am Anfang “auflegen” (wegen seinem Geburtstag).
Special Skills: Verzockte Triple Drops mit Neurofunk, Querflöten und Madonna-Acapellas

DJ Mix (5000)
…muss seine Getränke diesmal selbst bezahlen wegen dem abgerissenen Waschbecken letztesmal.
Special Skills: Nr. 25 hier mit zweimal der gleichen Platte und dadurch 0% Abwechslung im Set

Beginn: 23 Uhr
Eintritt: 6 Euro

Nogata ist eine/r der aktivsten “nur”-DJs im deutchsprachigen Raum. Sie ist Resident von gleich drei DnB-Partyreihen im Ruhrgebeat und muss eigentlich gar nicht mehr groß angekündigt werden, weil sie das ohnehin selbst tut, mit ihren Sets. Auch schon mal bei uns, im Februar 2013.

Timeout ist ein Sinsheimer Drum & Bass-Freak und hat 2008 mit dem selbst Auflegen angefangen. 2010 hat er zusammen mit DJ Blind:Sight in Sinsheim die “Jungle with Hats” Crew gegründet und seitdem u.a. bei der Feelings-Crew Zwischenstation gemacht. Er bringt sich seit Monaten aktiv beim Basslabor ein, ohne Gegenleistung zu erwarten, und konzentriert sich auf melodischen, treibenden Neurofunk.

Blind:Sight ist ein Mannheimer Drum & Bass-Freak und hat 2000 mit dem selbst Auflegen angefangen. 2010 hat er zusammen mit DJ Timeout in Sinsheim die “Jungle with Hats” Crew gegründet und seitdem u.a. bei 2R2E, Xenophonics und der Massive-Crew Zwischenstation gemacht. Er hat auch seit einiger Zeit vor, ein Label zu gründen (Sentry Rec.), und konzentriert sich auf rollenden, harten Neurofunk.

(Bad Boy) Kaiza ist schon ewig in der Kurpfalz mit Drum & Bass aktiv. Er hat die Trio / Trio-Music Crew gegründet (damals noch mit MC Shoota), die Radiosendung “DMF” 2001 – 2011 gehostet, hat Mitte der Millenium-Jahre mit seinem ehemaligen Studiopartner Amex zusammen auf Tilt-Recordings Techno-DNB-Pionierarbeit geleistet, schließlich sein eigenes (noch aktives) Label T3K ins Leben gerufen, zwischendurch mehrere Partyreihen in der S.U.I.T.E. veranstaltet und währenddessen zahlreiche Gigs quer über Europa gespielt. In den letzten Jahren hat er sich verstärkt dem Neurofunk zugewandt.

DJ Hektik kommt natürlich auch vorbei (siehe 2013 und 2012), wenn der Kaiza schon mal da ist… Schließlich sind die gemeinsamen Aktionen und Vinyl vs. Digital Sessions schon ‘ne gute Weile her.

DJ Image und DJ Mindforce sind fiktionale DJs. Sie traten 2004 zum ersten Mal in Erscheinung und wurden zuletzt 2007 in Mannheim auf einer iDrums-Party (ebenfalls mit Nogata) zusammen gesichtet. Inzwischen tauchen beide einzeln nur noch sporadisch in der international berühmten DnB-Szene auf.

DJ Mix ist auch wieder dabei, warum auch nicht. Macht ja auch Spaß, und darum geht’s. Oder net?

Final statement:

Some might have noticed that Tilt-Recordings has discontinued its operations… Although originally intended otherwise (cf TILT010 promotext) there will be no further vinyl releases on Tilt-Recordings because of the well known structural problems of the music industry in the contemporary digital media environment, effectively low vinyl sales and lack of funds. And since Tilt-Recordings started out as a vinyl label, it would be missing something essential if being continued 100% digitally. So the label was closed altogether.

Its last vinyl release has been TILT010 by Isotop/Kaiza/Shots/Budoka in early 2009, and the last digital release (T-FILE-EP015) came from Mefjus in November 2010.

The vinyl backstock was given out for free in spring 2011, all tunes were pulled from the digital shops soon after and were eventually made available as free 320 kbps mp3 downloads on the label homepage:

No releases whatsoever will follow after, no label comeback or re-opening of Tilt-Recordings will happen. This shutdown is final. The associated Soundcloud profile and Facebook page/group will be terminated in July.

The sister netlabel T-FREE was also closed parallely in 2011, with a massive final celebration release – an LP (“tl;dr Happy End”) with 35 tracks from Budoka, Kaiza, Mefjus, Pyro, kr4y, SKC, Mav, Paperclip, Engage, Polarity, Proktah, Phony, Bowsar and many others:

We the people behind Tilt-Recordings (Budoka, DJ Malice, Kaiza and DJ Hektik) are still around and can be contacted & booked through the label homepage and our social network profiles (Soundcloud, Facecock etc).

Kaiza’s own label T3K Recordings (started in February 2009 as a semi-sublabel and detached from Tilt-Recordings in 2010) is still very much active:

Running Tilt-Recordings / T-Files and T-FREE was a significant part of my life for the past decade. I came to meet a lot of interesting people, had many valuable experiences and tons of fun, and I believe I also have learned some facts. My thanks go to all involved artists for their musical contribution and especially for allowing me to put the tunes online as free downloads after ending the money business, Phono (without his input the Tilt vinyl series since 2006 could not possibly have been the same; R.I.P. Leet & Intersection!), Jens Zimmermann aka Tyrell, Pyro, Polarity, Dimo, xplizit, Massl, David Badger and all others who contributed resources and information at various stages, most of all to the original founders and label mates Kaiza and Budoka.

Now for some final words by these other two label owners of Tilt-Recordings who have remained silent in most of the former label statements.

Kaiza:
“Tilt-Recordings was the start of something for me. It was way more than just a label to release music i made or i liked. For me, it began to happen at the right time and the right place. And it was the melting pot of beliefs, ideals and expectations and also the first place of examination, observation, reflection and of course action. It was the roof over my head when “bad weather” was working against me and the “ground” beneath my feet on which i could walk whenever i wanted to. For me, the label was an absolute term for quite a long time. It was the main medium to make contacts, see the world and find a position in the dnb (lol)-circus. Although the idea (and so the label itself) was totally different in the beginning from what it became later on, Tilt-Recordings and all the people and things around it were basic groundworks for my musical development and also for my personal formation.
Now, some years later (and after countless experiences which can not be named here) and of course after a lot of change, i can say that i learned and gained so much from this project. For sure, these experiences are something that i dont want to miss… ”

Budoka:
“Looking back on the past almost ten years with ten vinyl-releases, a couple of mp3s and a heavy load of free tunes, Tilt-Recordings was not only a label to me but so much more. It was my homebase and it has given me the possibility to share my music to people all over the world. In all these years I gained a lot of experience and found many new friends. The label also pushed my development in producing and the evolving of my own sound.
So I have to thank my label-m8s for their hard work and for the many discussions we had. Sometimes they weren’t easy, but in the end we still made it and I’m proud that I’ve been a part of it.”

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.

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!
And now for the music.

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 (!)

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.

Broozy + Kigami - "Olympus"
6:06 min mp3 (320 kbps, 14.0 mb) --> T-FREE-LP002_27__Broozy_+_Kigami_-Olympus.mp3
Kigami has been around for a while and released some tunes on Metafiziq, T3K, the HMSU netlabel and Tinnitus Recordings. Broozy is a Bulgarian DJ who never released a tune before. 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."

edit: all 6 mixes have been put together into 1 post, for T3K news in the future see www.t3kdnb.de

This is the first part of a mix series by Kaiza on T3K Recordings
called “The T3K Chronicles”. Each part focuses on one specific
sound approach or artist (already released on T3K Recordings) and
demonstrates the particular context. This first issue is all about
Transylvanian Funk made by Kriotek (Proton Kid, Nufojah, Blastphemik).
Please show some respect for these Romanian Ambassadors of Techno-DNB…

It is time for the second part of the mix series by Kaiza on T3K Recordings
called “The T3K Chronicles”. Again, it is about one specific sound approach
or artist (already released on T3K Recordings): this issue is representing
a french mad man called Eiton! His stuff is an incredible fusion of Techno
and Drum & Bass and full of character, authenticity and ingenuity…

“The T3K Chronicles Vol 3″ is here! After introducing two heavy mixes representing
T3K Recordings and it`s main artists, another quality mix by Kaiza is being unleashed.
As the other parts showed, it focuses on one specific sound approach or artist (already
released on T3K Recordings): this edition is all about Triamer from Russia and his
reece-based rinse out which always destroys dancefloors.
Get it and destroy your living room as well!

http://t3kdnb.de/files/releases/Kaiza_presents_The_T3K_Chronicles_Vol_3_400.jpg

“The T3K Chronicles Vol 4″ is now available! Another delightful mix by Kaiza
which is all about an artist signed on T3K Recordings. This time it is about
a man who really is of some account: Dereck and his tracks are rated above the
average. His releases on labels like PRSPCT, Temper D Productions, Culture
Assault and T3K Recordings are dancefloor missiles and it is obvious that a
lot of people are not quite happy about the fact that he did not release
that much. Anyway, Kaiza proudly presents a mix which is showing the talent
of this man and his skills. You won`t be disappointed by this fine selection
of stompers!

“The T3K Chronicles Vol 5″ is a bit different from the other mixes presented
in the last weeks. This time Kaiza is focusing on a specific sound approach again,
but not by one of the T3K artists but by some of them: some might call this style
Neurotech which is showing that this is about music in between Neuro- and Techno-
Drum & Bass. But let`s not talk too much about it here and so download the mix and
get a picture of “The T3K Chronicles Vol 5″ by yourself!

http://t3kdnb.de/files/releases/Kaiza_presents_The_T3K_Chronicles_Vol_5_400.jpg

“The T3K Chronicles Vol 6″ is another quality mix presented by Kaiza which
focuses on a specific sound approach by one of the T3K artists. This edition
is showcasing a producer called T-Psy who is hailing from Brussels (Belgium)
and it can be described best as “mashing it up” because of two facts: it
contains a lot of mash ups and it will mash up your head real hard!
Download this mix and enjoy the flow!
