new wave copy centre zones

New wave revival or pastiche? Speedqueen feat. Dennis Tyfus & Milan Warmoeskerken … the latter is also in Tone Zones alongside Elko Blijweert … who recorded the exquisite Front 242 cover version below!

Kinda reminds me of “Chicks in leather“, btw … Also, how come LiMo’s “Das Ist Der Rhythmus, Mit Dem Du Mit Mußt” (2002) isn’t on YouTube yet?

p. funk all-stars

P. Funk All-Stars, 1983 … precursors, as ever … the full lp wasn’t as great, but this 12″ was & is … I was reminded of this classic by the sensational symbiosis of Stijn & Brzzvll yesterday

stijn & reggie watts riots


Stijn & Reggie Watts live at Vooruit (Ghent) 2011-03-23. Do check the images at the end of the Cobra video link. (Too bad the mp3’s of the “Ueberzip n°7” download do not give full info when you open them in iTunes.)

2011-01-07: who’s got the funk, mia?


Can’t believe Stijn wasn’t nominated for the 2011 Mia‘s as funkiest of the year, alongside Brzzvll – though the latter got a well deserved nomination for their and Afreux‘s album artwork! Bit monomanic pop & rock, aren’t they, against the VRT’s mission? As if urban as a category is inimaginable in our de facto multicultural society. Oh well … Here’s two tracks off Stijn’s third “Ten Danz” (Mijn Label 2010) – “WUGDAI” has Andrew “Chi” Claes of Brzzvll on sax and “Weten” Fabergé of Dutch rappers de Jeugd van Tegenwoordig – ànd the 1972 original of a track which Brzzvll often cover live … by Archie Shepp.

Bonus : a great story about a so-so “funk” record – musically mere EWF cloning, imho …

#1: the back catalogue (aka ISSN 13773828)

[uzine] used to be a music e-zine between 1999 and 2006, run by a threesome and then some (from the mid to end nineties, it was a webzine called ultra – hence the u -, run by (kf) & (hs) a.o. ). The e-zine (now defunct, don’t dream of sending stuff for review) had about 3000 subscribers and even more dedicated readers. We did interviews and reviews and provided the playlists of our radio shows (expect those here later on as well) plus a lot of links, favelists, best of the year overviews, etc. … annexed is the the whole shebang in a 2,6 MB zip featuring txt files and a contents pdf …

Incidentally, everything here is “for demonstration & (internet) conversation purposes”. This here blog will not be making any media files downloadable; such are our settings on this here Posterous platform. If they are presented here, the purpose is to promote artists by providing tangible examples of their art & craft, and to have you, o dear readership, become equally enthusiastic about the art on display, perhaps even tempting you to purchase it legally. As the financial crisis of 2008 has shown, we’re living in a consumer society (and a services economy, and an attention economy, and a spectacle society), so everyone has to be aware of and do what it takes to keep the wheels going (without harming the planet). Also, it is our intent to always provide direct links to artist or label sites, and to the sources we got our information or data from … as well as other relevant and informative links, cf. this site’s subtitle. Conversely (vice versa, mutatis mutandis), we hope to be quoted whenever material of ours is used, including all stuff from the issues of [uzine] contained in this here zip containing our own writings. Do contact us if you have issues or questions …

Update: since the switch from Posterous to WordPress, it’s no longer possible to offer a zip. Here’s the contents table instead, and an example issue. When there’s time, we’ll make a separate blogpost of each e-zine.
