As i´ve been to Who´s BADD? last week in Strasbourg i´ll now come up with a little review for you. First to mention is that it has probably been one of the coldest evening/nights i´ve experienced during the whole damn winter, but i think i took the best decision then in proceeding toward the place where digital hell was suposed to take place this night!
Therefore i traveled to Strasbourg to hear and experience an infernal night of hard, destructive electro. The venue where everything happened was actually more a small club/bar called L´Entrepôt. A pretty comfortable place with a nice interior and especially cool and kind staff and owner. Supported by Cover Your Face Crew the party started at around 10pm . First the music was a little bit too clubby or big beat related for my taste, but luckily Cover Your Face Crew soon started to advance and to drop the harder stuff as well! That’s when finally, and i must confess due to significantly large amounts alcohol consumption i had kind of lost track of the time, Hantise started to perform. The hometown boys from Strasbourg captivated the crowd at once playing nasty and trashy electro. From their remix of Anthony F´s “D.I.E.”, across The Bloody Beetroots, Fukkk Offf, Roevy, Q.G. , ValyMo, to their own track “Despotic Freak Show” – they covered really almost everything a hard electro lover could expect! I think they performed at least 1,5 hours, maybe longer, having a look at the time was unimportant anyway.
Directly after Hantise´s set the Killer King himself, WASA3I started to play his infernal set. As being an eyecatcher and equipped with his new mask, he nailed down everybody´s attention anyway but most impressive was the way he enforced his evil musical spell upon the crowd. Definitely a great performer and a dj who’s suprisingly eclectic!
The tracks he chose covered a wide range from his own releases like “Killer King” ,which was of course the opening track, to Audiomachine (Access Denied Remix), Wolfgang Gartner, Knife Party, Redial and to Metallica´s “And Justice For All”, the last track of his set. The transitions from track to track speak volumes for his skills, i remember, or better said i luckily wrote it down, he dropped Haezer´s “Joey Bloom” directly after the remix of Dead Cat Bounce´s & You Killing Me´s “Justice” by A.G. Trio. Two of my favourites, but also quite different tracks, and i suppose not easy to mix, therefore big ups!
Overall a perfect evening for me in a every respect, both Hantise and WASA3I satisfied all my expectations and i highly recommend each of them performing live! Even better of course seeing them both in one evening! Again a huge thanks to everybody who was involved in this apocalyptic-awesome evening, it was a fucking blast!!!
Hell-o all! No music coming today on the blog but i felt like taking the time to announce that Metalectro Vol.02 “Danger Zone” was at #26 in the Beatport Top 100 Electro House Releases chart yesterday. A very pleasant surprise as i was certain about the compilation’s and artist qulaity but didn’t know what to expect in terms of the Top 100 Electro House Releases chart. Setting a target now to make it to the Top 10 might be a bit too optimistic but let’s keep pushing and try to make it happen! Thank you all for your support, let’s give them hell!!!
Hell-o from me too you maniacs! I certainly hope you checked out our new member’s posts and that you enjoyed the fresh blood! Some of you might know her as Hanna but allow me to call here “lady disaster” not because she destroyed anything but because i hope and believe she will destroy your eardrums in an all good and lovely way! Anyway, i have to move on to my only post for today, which is no other of course than the 1st remix competition of 2012 on Metalectro, so let’s make it a big one too!
Like promised, the final results and the 20 track picks by Haezer, Le Castle Vania, Jet Set Trash and myslef that will be released on the Metalectro Vol.02 Compilation are decided! It’s been a long wait but the time has come to know which of you made it. It’s been a really tight one, some tracks had to be dropped even today and we are very happy both with the number of traks submitted and the quality! One of the 20 winners will also receive a special gift, allow me to keep it a secret for now though… We haven’t yet agreed on who the number 1 winner is yet so we will pick a random winner out of the judges number 1 picks. What’s really important for now though, is the 20 winners and their tracks, so without any further delay here they come:
The 20 winning tracks are listed below in no particular order:
On behalf of all the judges i want to thank you all for the track submissions and for aprticipating in this competition, it was fun! Congratulations to the winners and we’ll be in touch soon for what happens next! Also, the number 1 winner which will be a random pick from all 4 judge’s number 1 picks and favorite tracks (which interestingly enough were different for each judge and there were no common favorites) will be notified about his special gift as soon as we have his name!
In case you haven’t yet found out, it’s the second month in a row that Haezer is under our Spotlight page since he was once again the artist with the most views and traffic on Metalectro throughout the last month. And as you know by now i guess, this means every Haezer related information, event, news, etc that are worth mentioning will be mentioned here and of course on his Spotlight Page. Not too long ago the tourdates for Haezer‘s European tour were announced and in case you missed them, here they are! There might be a few empty dates but i’ll keep checking and try to post any new dates as soon as they are announced. In case i can’t keep up though, you can check on his facebook page for yourselves… So here we go and those of you who are near in one of those cities mentioned on this list, you better be checking Haezer out live, you know it’s going to be a monster show! Another thing that’s really worth mentioning is that if you pay close attention to these dates, you’ll see a show in London, UK, something which is really nice to see at last since i haven’t seen or heard many shows in London related to this music scene. A sign of things to come in the near future? Let’s wait and see!
