techno and few other intelligent things

OUT NOW IPO//021 – Gabe DM!

Finally my first EP is out on IPOLOGICA.

this is the coolest graphic I could imagine for it:

The EP is perfectly descripted on their website so I will post that.

“Artist’s release description:

The two track are inspired by Osvaldo Bayer’s “Patagonia Rebelde”. The book tells of the tragic facts that took place in the Santa Cruz region of Argentina in 1921 when strikes endangered the interests of a few wealthy landowners.
The strikes were brutally ended by the government army, led by President Hipolito Yrigoyen and his commander Hector Benigno Varela. More than 1500 workers were killed during these strikes, making it one of the saddest pages in Argentinean history.

The epilogue of these events took place on CALLE FITZ ROY Street. On January the 27th, two years after the revolt, a German worker named Kurt Wilckens, killed Hector Benigno Varela at 2461 Calle Fitz Roy, in the neighbourhood of Palermo in Buenos Aires. Firing six shoots of his Colt, he screamed loudly, “I revenged my comrades”. Kurt Wilkens was jailed and subsequently killed in jail by one of Varela’s relative.

PASO IBANEZ is the place where, on the 23rd of November of 1921, the first worker’s shooting took place. The strikers where entrenched in the local movie theatre and were negotiating their surrender with Varela in exchange for a comrades’ release. Varela tricked them and killed them all. After this the Patagonian strikes were all terminated, with the army arresting and shooting most of the strikers.

I am really happy about this and really excited so I want to thank Giulio and Fabio from IPOLOGICA for the opportunity they are giving me.

Listen and download some Jeff Mills djsets from 1986 to 2010

Jeff Mills started as a radio dj (aka The Wizard) working at Detroit WJBL radio station along with Charles Johnson (aka The Electrifying Mojo).

At the end of the 80ies Jeff Mills and former Parliament bass player Mike Banks, founded the Techno collective Underground Resistance (UR). Later, Robert “Noise” Hood, joined the collective. UR philosophy was strictly anti-mainstream and was inspired by the Black Panther political movement (as Jeff Mills himself confirmed in some interviews).

Mills then moved to New York, Berlin and finally to Chicago, although he never officially leaved UR collective, he started to produce his solo works. In 1992 he founded AXIS record labels with his friend Robert Hood, investigating a more minimal and modern sound. Also, in the next years, sub-labels were created:Purpose Maker, Tomorrow, and 6277.

Mills is wordly known for his excellent turntablism skills, here you can check one of his performance with three turntables. , he usually uses up to seventy records in an hour.
