Calimex Mental Implant Corporation 2xLP Back in Stock

The 2015 Calimex Mental Implant Corporation 2xLP on Nightwind Records is back in the stock in some shops if you don’t have a copy yet go check it out!

From the Bleep.com website:
“an album of bonkers electro rooted house and techno on his Nightwind Records imprint. El Saber Del Arpavor is a particularly melodic listen, containing warm house music, boogie-funk electro, and downtempo instrumental balladry. Each track carries the distinctive analogue synthesizer sound that has become Wolfers’ sonic trademark, and shows that there’s no sign of him slowing down any time soon. Basically this is prime time Legowelt action, deep swinging electro and hip-hop styles with a psychedelic edge that can only come from one D. Wolfers”

The release is also on bandcamp for pay what you want here!

get the vinyl at the following shops:

BLEEP U.K.

CLONE Holland

DISK UNION japan

and probably some other stores around the world too…

Zandvoort & Uilenbal – Folk Triumfator Out Now

 

NIGHTWIND RECORDS NW024

A new ZANDVOORT & UILENBAL album -> Medieval music expert Jimi Hellinga teams up with Legowelt for an 11 track dark medieval spacejazz ambient dungeonfolk album called “FOLK TRIUMFATOR’ the successor to their ‘Geruis Uit Somberdorp’  album from 2016.

Its available on bandcamp for free/pay what you want. Think of the more experimental non guitar stuff from Current93 mixed with Kenny G mingled up with Luciano Berio sauced with Amateur Space Jazz and lots of sinister old instruments like the hurdy gurdy and harmonium.

FOLK TRIUMFATOR is the second album by Zandvoort & Uilenbal, a ‘paramusical academic’ project of medieval musician Jimi Hellinga and Danny Wolfers. As Zandvoort & Uilenbal they appropriate historical instruments such as a 19th century Victorian harmonium, a medieval hurdy gurdy, an electro acoustic thumb harp and an mid 20th century German Mixtur Trautonium. These are cross bred with the usual arsenal of contemporary electronic instruments and seasoned with some sinister poetry in their North Sea coast temple of sensory sonic delights.

We can write how conceptual and arty this all is but let’s just say this is hardcore dark ambient with lots of medieval drone space jazz influences to trip your mind out into a region where time and your opinions cease to exist.

A bit more about some of the instruments used:

The mighty medieval hurdy gurdy is a curious, and for its time, highly technologically advanced instrument in which sound is produced by a rotating wheel’bow’ that strikes strings while a little Keyboard that pushes wedges is used to play the melodies. Special dedicated strings can be set to play a continuous drone that can accompany the melody. You can hear Jimi Hellinga playing his hurdy gurdy on tracks like “Safe Sailing for the Galleon Caladrius” and “Folk Triumfator”

The late 19th century Kimbal parlor organ/harmonium was already used intensively on the first Zandvoort & Uilenbal album (the 2015 “Geruis Uit Somberdorp”). With its grotesque wooden carvings and ornaments it is still a pièce de resistance in the studio. This colossal instrument produces creaking haunting drones that have become the signature sound for the Zandvoort & uilenbal project.

An electro acoustic mbria / kalimba – an electrified thumb harp using a contact microphone going directly into a tape echo and spring reverb -instantly brings forth endless rusty metallic sounds of chaos like a dark Ligottian music box. It can be heard on ‘Always a Nice Story Before Bedtime’ among other songs.

The mixtur trautonium, just like the parlor organ, is also revived from the preceding album. This strange early electronic instrument originally invented in 1929 by Friedrich Trautwein at the Berlin Musikhocheschule music and radio lab provides spookily electro acoustic sounds that can be played in an intense expressive manner with a special touch controller. The one we use is based around a Doepfer modular that emulates more or less the classic Mixtur Trautonium build by Oskar Sala in the 1950s.

NOVATION SUMMIT & PEAK TIPS & PATCHES


I did a bit of work for the British Novation synthesizer company, designing sounds for their Peak & Summit synthesizers which ended up as presets in the Summit and you can transfer my free 128 PEAK patches here using their online PEAK librarian
(these sounds are already in the Summit as preset bank C)

I also did a series of Hacks/tips for the PEAK  which you can watch on the Novation youtube channel:


How to use the PEAK delay as a looper sequencer
PEAK as a drum machine
Three oscillator Harmonics
PEAK as a Hurdy Gurdy or doing some Medieval droning
PEAK fun with envelopes

You can do these tricks on the Summit too ofcourse because a Summit = 2 PEAKS 😉

Using my sample packs in Ableton Tutorial

As you might have seen Last week I released my QUASIMIDI SIRIUS sample pack for muscians/producers etc. (check it out here if you missed it). My homeboy composer Antoni Maiovvi made a little tutorial video on how to make a track using this sample pack in Ableton on his youtube channel. If you want to begin making/producing music using Ableton but were afraid to ask check his channel called Maiovvi Tutorials…it might be the beginning of a beautiful career for you or at least a pleasant distraction the coming months. For those not familiar with Antoni Maiovvi he scored several movies like The Housewife and Mutant Blast and also produces giallo/Italian horror influenced albums

Live Transmission From The North Sea Institute For The Overmind

yesterday I did a little live performance stream from my studio for the Octopus Agents Octo-Live-Stream to raise money for the Voedselbanken Nederland (Food Bank Holland) who supply food to people in need, which is especially now an organization that is needed. Ofcourse this was focused for Dutch people if you are somewhere else in the world you can always help out your local food bank – or do something else to help, get groceries for people that can’t go out or have to work in the hospitals, walk people’s dogs, make sure they are OK etc.etc.etc. Don’t be a dumbass hoarding toilet paper & pasta help others instead!!! Keep up the hygiene, keep distance and stay safe!!!!!!!!


Out now LEGOWELT – TIPS FOR LIFE

Joining the bandcamp craze -> Legowelt’s TIPS FOR LIFE’ a 12 track album with all sorts of stuff ranging from Memphis Rapbeats to Poldertechno is out now on Nightwind Records.

Get it here for free on bandcamp

If you can and have $$$ to spare, please browse all weekend on bandcamp and buy lots of albums from artists that really need support now since bandcamp is dropping their purchase fee (which isn’t much normally too btw)…That means all the money goes straight to the artists.  I am in a pretty ok situation and therefore the album is free/pay what you want -> to hopefully brighten your coming days up a bit. I probably make some tapes too in the future and maybe drop it on vinyl when things are running a bit more smoothly again. Stay safe and keep sane!!!
