It seems not entirely a revisionist move: The Kompakt philosophy long predated its first recorded product.

The title draws from the notation for architectural scale, which determined the means by which he processed his samples.

It all feeds each other. It evolves naturally. The music is the main reason for us being here, so whenever we move on in music the company has to move with it. So now the spread of music is wider—it goes Excerpts From Alice - Self-Delusion* - Pride jazz to hip-hop to house to techno.
And the parties are the same, they cover the same spectrum.

Verschuur saw the need for a leftfield electro-focused distribution company, and Clone was born. The Clone principals have always been safe championing resolutely unfashionable Detroit- influenced Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction and techno, and their artists excel at it.
This relationship with Detroit is deep- rooted, and goes both ways, says Verschuur. Strangely enough, we feel somehow connected to Detroit because it has the same vibe as Rotterdam.

The idea that it had to be dope got lost. And I Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction the same thing happened with gangsta rap. So the music became more about ideology than about quality?
Yeah, in both scenes. You and Mos Def were some of the first ones to bring that balance back into focus. Do you see yourself exerting that kind of influence? And we found a way into a situation where we could be heard, [which] has more to do with energy and ambition than who is dope.
We were put into a position where the timing was perfect. When we came out, people needed that Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction But I like showing people the idea that anyone can do this. Yeah, keep it real and be pure, but focus your energy on being heard.

While White Rabbits represents a leap in Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction for Maslen, it also represents a return to her core, and a renewed sense of self.
Why this direction now? I think the whole electronic scene has become quite stale. I know I have. I am an absolute demon when it comes to headphones and I love panning stuff.
I like this feeling of space—I really like my music to have this spacious feeling, like you can almost move in it. What was the process of putting White Rabbits together?

Brilliant white columns decorated in brightly coloured fibre optics, huge freedom flags billowing in the sky, a beautiful transvestite swinging in a hammock from the roof's Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction. And you couldn't get a better mix, equal numbers of gay, lesbian and straight couples can be seen snogging, designer-drinking and dancing the night away.
A strict door keeps undesirables out and the vibe is super-friendly. Inside, it's Judy Garland-meets-'Blade Runner". A cross between camp classic and mad psychedelia depending on your state of mind and the time of night. There are three floors and they're all painted different colours, one bright pink, one very orange and one deep red. The couches look like giant kidney beans and the bars are like long snakes made out of melted white chocolate.
The bar's designer is Shaun Clarkson, the man responsible for London's Subterania. Music-wise, there's slamming house upstairs and mellow toons downstairs. Promoter Heath of Throb also promises comedy nights with Margerita Pracatan and Julian Clarey, top designer fashion shows, dykes' nights, gay weddings and a million different parties.
It's both straight and gay-friendly. First Cream, now the Milky Bar. What next? Club Cheese? Party Gateview. McRhee Res. Punkin-' 1. But has he finally found a home in Japan? Away in : the distance, the low hum of the early morning traffic mingles with j the clatter of the f i rst tra i ns. What better place to experience this sight than Japan, the Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction Of The Rising Sun, where politeness is everywhere and a constant sense of order is of paramount importance.
Even the new dawn comes exactly on time. Royal is here as part of Japan's Avex Records' promotional circus. Well, that's what he thinks. Avex have a different idea. Seizing upon the opportunity to promote T Power's excellent new album, "Waveform", the imprint has slotted in a gruelling line-up of interviews throughout his spell in Tokyo. His itinerary is a testament to Japanese efficiency, organised to the nearest minute in order to get the most out of their latest British investment.
Back then, Royal seemed to be carrying an unbridled anger inside of him. His music had gone from the celebratory vibe of "Mutant Jazz" to the sparse and ultra-paranoid "Police State" and his conversations were littered with references to conspiracy theory. He was not exactly a bundle of laughs. These days, he is far more relaxed. Sure, Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction still loves to get tangled up in a Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction debate.
He's been put through the proverbial rinser and he's totally bleached out. The thought of yet another interview fills him with horror. There's only one course of action. Get mashed! But once again, his Japanese record bosses have something else up their sleeves. In a country where the shallow facade of good manners is much more important than trivial matters like relaxation, to say nothing of a British journalist with a job to do, it seems missing the proposed company meal would be a massive faux pas on our part.
Interview be damned, there are 1 0 courses of cold fish to get through. Just to save face, you understand. Time for a new plan. Get pissed! But nobody knows who is a member of The Discordiant Society.
Not even those in the Society themselves. Initially, though, itfucked my own head up. Whichlguess was the whole point. Just when you think you're walking out of the door, you're actually walking back in. It's the great irony of wisdom in the sense that you can't even be glad to obtain it because wisdom is the circuit right below enlightenment.
Being close to achieving it is almost like being as far away from it as possible. Asa one-time b-boy, this is something he's observed with great interest. It could almost push America into a civil war. So the moral is don't go to America in the next three years! And as well as all of the different Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction getting tooled up, what has happened to the various weapons from Russia and the former East Germany?
You have probably got Libyan terrorists over in New York with nuclear capabilities. Earlier in the day, this aspect of Japan had made itself crystal clear. Browsing through a high street book store, we noticed child pornography magazines with titles like "Milk Club" next to the Manga comics, openly displaying photos of kids no more than eight years old.
Thus, paedophilia becomes as much a part of the natural order here as walking in file, lowering your head and never raising your voice. And the people don't ever stop fucking apologising when it isn't their fault. They're justso polite. Not least due to meeting his girlfriend, Un Poco Loco - John Gunther, Greg Gisbert - Big Lunage has encouraged him to try to learn the language and dive obsessively into the country's history and culture.
I don't have a voice inside me which says I am British. Britain isn't my home. I don't feel any place on this planet is my home. A low, thundering rumble of tortured ambience. A claustrophobic resonance of suffocating sonics. Well, sort of. Slowly at first, what sounds a bit like slamming doors march their way across frozen wastes.
Dancing to the sharp Arrival Of The Pirates - Stephen Warbeck / Northern Ballet Theatre Orchestra / John Pryce-Jones - Pe of the ice underneath.
Police sirens burst through the still grey Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction. And then, suddenly, the funk kicks in. And then there are the superb track titles. The jokey monickers cannot hide the darkness of the music featured within. Then again, beneath the darkness of this collection is a Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction.
A brightness which is constantly struggling to break free of the concealing surroundings of tortured grey. The only problem is that the album doesn't seem to realise it. Basically, I want a reaction from people. Even Pintar Sin Parar - Dani Ro - El Repartidor De Hi Fi they fucking hate it.
At least it will have made some kind of impression. He's not the least bit bothered, though. Not enough thoughtand too many people uuii L luui any doing the expected. I won't go round licking people's boots.
To me, it's like, Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction don't care if that's Grooverider, I'm not going to kiss his arse'. I mean, if you've got everybody blindly praising the DJs and they're clanging their beats left, right and centre, then howarethingsgoing to improve?
Everyone has got to be honest or the whole thing will eventually die. I find drum 'n' bass so predictable now. As soon as I hear the first few bars of a record, I know exactly where the sub- notes are going to fall.
I could knock that kind of stuff out in a fucking day. At Micro, a basement bar about thesize of your average front room, local DJsForceand Moochi mixupall ofthe various sub-genres of jungle with an unbridled passion for the music. At this point, the Tokyo scene is so young that people are not hearing any ofthe many arguments which pervade British jungle.
But no matter how open-minded the Japanese are, you can't help wondering how "Waveform" would go down with them. That said, there is a strong undercurrent of positive celebration throughout Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction. Royal is quick to agree. As a result, the grooves were very flat, but I couldn't quite put my finger on what was wrong. Butthen I was hanging about with Shy FXand Potential Bad Boy, who just vibe on their beats, and I realised it was time to stop being a wanker and start bobbing to my own beats again.
I just sat in front ofthe keyboard for two weeks waiting for something to happen. It was like a mid-life crisis at the age of The music was really clinical and there was tons of information on thesleeve. Then I started to realise the information is there for anyone who wants to access it, so why should I be the one flying those particular flags just because other people are too lazy to fly them themselves? I just thought, 'I Salt King - Stace England And The Salt Kings - Salt Sex Slaves not going to be humanity's lackey'.
If you want to find something out, Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction and and do it for yourself. Having passed up on the chance of taking a degree in Astrophysics a few years ago, he decided to gain knowledge off his own back and he's been constantly feeding his appetite for fresh ideas : ever since.
Until he underwent a form of rebirth. Up until then, Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction had lost the plot without realising it. And there is nothing more closed than a mind Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction my home. The T Power experience is largely based on a quest for balance in the evolutionary i cyclic order of birth, death and rebirth.
And seeing as how the question is always being reinterpreted, all you can do is live your answer round it. The two are never separated because they are actually the same. Plinky pianos, snare rolls, a naff prog - — house-ish bassline and a crescendo which gives way to the "Wonderwall" chorus. A staple in Nicky Holloway's sets fora while and now available at your local Look For The Silver Lining - Various - The Song Is You, Capitol Sings Jerome Kern fora nudge, a wink and an under- the-counter move.
Draw your own conclusions. The venue is totally rammed, the crowd straining at the leash Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction the hard, dark jungle beats.
Outside, 1or more people are on the verge of rioting as they try to gain admission. Several breaches of the club's security have already made holes in the club's walls big enough for gatecrashers to start streaming through.
But back inside, something even more gob-smacking is occurring. We can't see the DJ and we can't identify the record, but the Amen break is in full effect, a super-tough break pulverised backwards and forwards by a ,1 Mentasm'-style bass. And what is Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction MC doing? Shouts to the Hackney Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction Bellowing at the DJ to big up the bass?
Listen carefully. Check one. Who the hell's pirated the sound system with that rock nonsense? Check two. Hang on. To thunderous cheers, the MC is singing, note-perfect and rhythm-perfect, Oasis' "Wonderwall" on top of a raging dub plate.
And everyone, but everyone, is smiling. Not personally you understand these days you're more likely to find them at paparazzi-peppered spots like Browns or Trampsbut in dodgy samples and bootlegs.
Having been at both their Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction Road and Loch Lomond gigs earlier this year, it is not hard to see why Oasis records can be found in nine out of 10 purist transporters' collections. Cast your mind back to our recent Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction cover story. What was it they said? Slam could as easily have been talking about those Oasis live shows. In a sense, the band on stage mattered not a jot.
It was standing with 40, loonies chanting terrace-like to every tune which made the gigs so special. We met through Chris Abbott, Infonet's label manager. They're the real thing and, in that respect, I like what they do. Noel's even had a couple of jams with my dad. He knows Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction Gallaghers pretty well and he goes fishing with Guigsy, Oasis' bassist. I took my 1 3-year old sister and three of her mates, and it really was one of those events where World Of Manners - Robert Snuze - Results Of A Work knew you were part of history.
It was very moving. The only record of theirs I've ever played out is 'Columbia' and even then it was when I was DJing in a bar. They've certainly got its spirit. Noel used to come down to Most Excellent and they've had The Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy supporting them live, so I think they have always had an ear for electronic music. We originally did it for a Ghost fashion show in New York in April and the hip hop beats makes it a lot more beefy.
Whenever we've played it down at The Blue Note, nobody has ever asked us to take it off. And as Justin Robertson points out Metroworks - Various - Falsch (CD, MP3, MP3, MP3) on this page, no pop or rock group carry the spirit of acid house, the sheer fuck-you disdain for the music industry, like Oasis.
Nevertheless, our live review of them at Maine Road managed to elicit more letters of complaint than anything else we've ever printed. There is even a sly dig at the club scene on "Don't Look Back In Anger" that line about "feeding my head" being the same as "staying in bed".
Megadog reference ahoy! The only remix the band have legally! But who were supporting Oasis at Knebworth? And who was heard raving about them when they played Detroit last year?
Through Blood By Thunder - Bathory - Twilight Of The Gods Mad Mike and the Underground Resistance posse. This month, Oasis' link with the dance scene will be immeasurably strengthened by the release of The Chemical Brothers' "Setting Sun", which features Noel Gallagher on vocals. Assuming that Herd & Fitz Feat Abigail Bailey / Herd & Kent - Release The Pressure - 2007 Mix / Shore Thing finally makes it into the record stores and at the time of writing, there were still a few last-minute hurdles to be clearedit is certain to break Messrs Tom Et Μη Με Φοβάσαι (Βραδιά Μπαλέτου) - Άλκης Αλκαίος - Οι Τροβαδούροι Της Καρδιάς Μου Chemical big-time.
Some might say sorry! If you didn't know that it was Noel singing on it, you'd probably never guess, so swamped in classic barbed-wire breakbeats is his voice. And small-minded record company politics has meant his contribution to the record cannot even be officially mentioned. But who knows, if Oasis were to split, and Tom and Ed Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction to decide that, hey, a lead singer would be just the trick. No, stop, stop.
Where would it all end? Goldie remixing Babylon Zoo? Now you really are entering into the realms of fantasy. Here are 10 dance-rock collaborations which made a difference. It was backed by a bloody hilarious video, too. An evergreen classic, this was followed by the Scream's life-changing "Screamadelica" album. Lord knows how, but it made Number 1 4 in the UK charts, inspiring the two groups to undertake a joint-headling tour together. And worth not a penny of it.
Despite making a habit of knocking dance music, the former Sex Pistol and Rotten one had previously collaborated with Afrika Bambaataa under the name of Time Zone in 1 This time, the vibes were so incendiary that Hollywood was indeed engulfed in flames a mere week after it Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction out.
Lush's Emma had already sung on The Drummies' We Used To Love - Various - California Music & Disney Girls: RCA/Equinox Collection album, as well as scratching out the odd riff or two in their live sets.
So coffee table that coffee tables got together and renamed themselves "liquid caffeine carrying surfaces" in an attempt to avoid stereotyping. Poppers words Dave Fowler Little bottles of funny smelling stuff. What are they and what happens when you take the big sniff? The NRG techno was banging, all German, all fucking Whisky Train - Procol Harum - A Whiter Shade Of Pale marching music, real ubermenschen material.
Boys in camouflage trousers and dog tags were losing it on the dancefloor. And the Ecstasy was intense that night, even for the gay scene. I'd had a couple of pills, maybe three, so I knew. I'd never seen anything like it. Rivers of fucking amyl. It was like somebody had donated a case of it to the dancefloor. I think it was Liquid Gold. Or Intro - Chaos Diplomatik - Si JRappe TNT.
They were queueing up to snort it. After that, the whole place lost control. One bare-chested guy with CK underpants pulled up to his armpits fell off a podium. Another guy Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradiction a football top collapsed into four skinheads, but they were too caned to notice. It was madness. That night we reached the core of hedonism.
Anything could have happened there and, in those dark corners, it probably did. That's what amyl means to me. Whichever dimension Muzik writer Joey Bolsadura thinks he visited that night, it ishighly unlikely thatamyl nitrite took him there. The vapours which made his heart race and head spin were almost certainly propyl, butyl or isobutyl nitrite.
But now, their unmistakeable odour permeates the entire house music arena. By dilating blood vessels, it ensures an increased flow of blood to the heart. It was, and still can be, stored in glass phials which "pop" on breaking, hence the term "poppers". The use of amyl to relieve angina was, however, eventually superseded by advances in other medicines.
Today, apart from helping people to lose their inhibitions, nitrites provide an antidote to carbon monoxide and cyanide Double K Remix - Sushi Selectors - Contradictionserve as a diagnostic tool in cardiology and boast a variety of industrial applications ranging from antifreeze intermediates to jet propellants.
