Neon Fern

Saturday 26 November I’ll be rolling out my Beau Kannon alias for a DJ set at Neon Fern a night of “dark techno, leftist pop and electronica”, and of course ferns. Taking place at Baroque in Katoomba, there are also sets from Melty, Ghostgirl (whose new album A.I. Ambient Intimacy was released earlier this week), Mannheim Rocket (3BS Records) and Broken Chip. Plus digital installations from Mark Sabb of U.S. online mag Felt Zine.  Tickets and info on Facebook.

Three Heads Meet Messmer And Koo Koo

Mitch Jones & Michael Tee stand as two of the key figures in the history of alternative music in Sydney. Together they founded M-SQUARED Records – home to a cluster of now seminal local post-punk artists such as SYSTEMATICS, THE MAKERS OF THE DEAD TRAVEL FAST, YA YA CHORAL, PROD and their own band, SCATTERED ORDER. Nearly 30 years after the fact, SCATTERED ORDER reformed their original line-up earlier this year, and started both playing live and recording once again. I was asked to DJ at their second ‘reformation’ gig with THE MAKERS OF THE DEAD TRAVEL FAST and A SLOW RIP last month – a gig which also represented one of the last live events at the Abercrombie Hotel in Chippendale before it closed its doors.

This mix is essentially my DJ set trimmed to a neat 43 minutes, and features Australia music from the M-SQUARED heyday (1979-1983), both from label artists and beyond. Witnessing this music now, some 30 years later, I’m not particularly aware of the impact that each artist or track may have had at the time, instead I chose to respond to the sounds that still have resonance today. Indeed, listening end-to-end to this mix, this feels like the start of a much longer continuum, and it becomes clear (almost immediately) that there are many current local bands and artists that – wittingly or otherwise – are fostering a unique Australian tradition that began over three decades ago.

Tracklisting:

  • Severed Heads – Introduction / 1982 [from Adenoids 1977 – 1985 Disc 4]
  • Systematics – … And The People Are Blowing Their Minds / 1981 [from Boxed Brownies]
  • Ronnie and the Rhythm Boys – Hey Joe / 1979 [from Little Bands EP]
  • Ya Ya Choral – God’s Buzzsaw / 1983 [from Such A Dutch Man]
  • Yclept Dinmakers – I Think A Shell / 1982 [from Klinger The Blowies]
  • Hiroshima Chair – Reset / 1980 [from Reset]
  • SPK – Mekano / 1979 [from Auto Da Fe]
  • Severed Heads – Food City / 1981 [from Clean]
  • The Limp – Rony Club / 1981 [from A Selection]
  • Essendon Airport – Runway Rock / 1979 [from Sonic Investigations (Of the Trivial)]
  • Microfilm – Summer House / 1981 [from From Belgrade With Love]
  • Prod – Fish Hook / 1980 [from More Songs That Will Never Be Released]
  • Negative Reaction – Untitled A01 / 1980 [from Negative Reaction]
  • Zyé yé yé – I Want To Live / 1981 [from Primitive Calculators]
  • Laughing Hands – Two / 1981 [from Dog Photos]
  • Severed Heads – Much About Bones, Hello Donald Merry Xmas / 1980 [from Adenoids 1977 – 1985 Disc 1]

Nova (Indonesia) + Potato Master (Japan) – Uber System Remixed!

This Saturday, Uber Lingua returns to Sydney with Uber System Remixed: six live acts, seven DJs, an all-night “post-world” dancehall party. Representing live will be Rauberhole (Germany), Nova (Indonesia), Pochoman (Cuba), Potato Master (Japan), Gypsy Dub Sound System (Australia) and Black Symbol (Ghana), with DJ sets from myself, Lorna, Mashy P, bP, Sven Simulacram, BFG and Dub Chaman. Tickets ten bux (free mixtape for first 100) @ Abercrombie Hotel, Broadway. More info at http://www.uberlingua.com/

UBER REMIXED PREVIEW:

mp3: NOVA Arek Malang Kudu Seneng (feat MC SBY & Sven Simulacrum) [Indonesia]

Nova was born in Malang, East Java, daughter of well-known Indonesian guitarist Toto Tewel. She started rapping at the age of 19 with her co-conspirator Indry – debuting at a local basketball match – and, bagging a love of Lauren Hill on the way, Twin Sista was born. Following inclusion on the (excellent) ‘Perang Rap’ indonesian hip hop collection, their debut album (‘Mother Of Nature’) dropped in ’03. Following Indry’s move to Japan in 2005, Nova found herself adrfit, trying out both jazz and reggae, but neither suited her sound. A chance meeting with the team behind “It’s Hiphop Poetry Battle” has led to a new lease of hip hop life and last year, Nova headed back to Yogya to record her first solo single, ‘Dikawinkan Alam’.

mp3: POTATO MASTER Ichee Nee San Chee Ragga [Japan]

I had the good fortune to drop beats for Potato Master (above, right) at last year’s Bellingen Global Festival, where the MC also took home the title belt in the ‘Ya Lingo!’ multi-lingual freestyle face-off. It might have been his laconic Japanese drawl that won the crowd, but I suspect that the radiation suit / SARS mask combo also won a few hearts. The above mp3 is a good example of what he describes as his “funny music”, combining Japanese, English and utter gibberish.

Sydney Festival First Night – Uber Lingua at Angel Place

This Saturday, Sydney kills it: the Sydney Festival has been getting better and more relevant each year, and in 2008 they might well have nailed it. It kicks off with a free, multi-location street party this weekend with performances from none other than the original bee-atch boy Brian Wilson, plus Spank Rock, Lost Valentinos, Chromeo, Ajax, Plump DJs and much more.

And then there’s the Uber Lingua crew, sweet talked by Sydney Festival into throwing up a two-stage laneway bash in Angel Place (‘tween Pitt & Geroge) – twenty-one of us (count ’em), live performances, MCs, VJs and DJs including Morganics (Wilcannia Mob / M.I.A. re-production etc), Charlie McMahon, Gypsy Dub Sound System, Wire MC and more. Check the full line-up and set-times at the Sydney Festival web site – I’ll be dropping two sets at around 8 and 10pm. Viva la Festivale!

UPDATE: Check out the great photo set from the night via Uber Lingua on Flickr.

Fat Planet at Uber Lingua Melbourne

This Thursday (22nd Nov) I’ll be in Melbourne, DJ-ing at Uber Lingua @ Jeromes (Caledonia Lane) – playing alongside bP, sakamoiz, Dubwise and Gonzo. bP and sakamoiz are part of the hardcore Uber massive and consistently play an eclectic top-shelf variety of global beats; Dubwise founded two of Adelaide’s sound systems, Babylon Taxi and Dubwise and Gonzo specialises in Reggae, Roots, Latin and Gypsy tunes. Having bagged some new baile funk and cumbia of late, I expect I’ll be dropping some of those flavours as well as the usual excursions into random tangents. Entry, as always at Uber Lingua, is zero dollars.

Heaps Decent Fundraiser

This Friday (9th November), Heaps Decent are throwing a Sydney fundraiser for their ongoing workshop projects, seeking out and promoting new music from young indigenous and underprivileged artists. Their debut release ‘Smash A Kangaroo’ is soon to be followed by a new production; featuring young, female inmates from a Sydney ‘juvenile justice centre’, working on an exclusive production with M.I.A., Yelle and Tepr, recorded while the trio were in town for the recent Parklife festival.

The Sydney party features DJ sets from Bag Raiders, Soft Tigers, teenagersintokyo, Heaps Decent honchos Sleater Brockman and NinaLasVegas, plus Catcall, Spod and heaps more. Like most of the participants, I’ll be dropping a short, sharp 20 minute set at some point during the evening. It all happens at Oxford Art Factory in Darlinghurst and door tax is only five bucks. Get familiar!

MAKKENZ [JAPAN]

this sunday at 34b (darlo, sydney), something a little special – japanese mc makkenz drops into town as part of his first australian tour. this is no ordinary hip hop show: thanks to exquisite production from his counterpart kageyamatenki, makkenz is deep inside an alt.hip hop arena more akin to stables such as mush, anticon and lex than anything else. thus far, the word on makkenz has been almost entirely limited to his home country, but we’ll be busting that cherry come sunday – with dj support from the uber lingua crew sheerien, mashy p and myself.

hear some makkenz tunes at murdochspace/trumanrecords.

SYDNEY FUNK BALL – SUNDAY 4 FEBRUARY

this sunday, uber lingua presents the inaugural ‘sydney funk ball‘ – bringing a little slice of rio baile funk to the city of sin.

it’s well known that rio de janeiro is home to some of the most dangerous slums in the world. with limited food, crime-ridden streets, guns and severe drug trafficking, children are given little hope for a normal life in the favelas. remarkably, this insane environment has also given rise to the world’s most in-demand musical genre; the sound of funk carioca, or baile funk (portuguese for “funk ball”).

this event, like the recent funk balls in melbourne, will raise money to help the efforts of sister carmelia, a woman who lives in one of the worst slums in the taquara district in rio and dedicates her life to ensuring that local children are fed, cleaned and receive medical attention.

this sunday at the abercrombie hotel (cnr abercrombie & broadway, central sydney) from 6pm, a paltry six bucks will buy you jimmy sing & sleater brockman (ro sham bo / fbi), brasilian djs marcelinho (one night in brazil) and melbourne’s guido melo plus uber residents bp, mashy p, sheerien and myself. there’s also a special capoeira performance by filhos da bahia and a fashion show from totem praia (that abercrombie dancefloor makes for the perfect catwalk…). also the legendary uber lingua barbeque and door prizes.

more info, including pics of sister carmelia’s work, can be found at uberlingua.com. see you there.

GREEN BEATS

this sunday (7th), i’ll be playing at green beats at petersham bowling club in sydney. many fine local players have dropped sets here in the past, all surely relishing the odd opportunity to play records at a lawn bowls club. (and if you don’t know lawn bowls, get a primer here).

the line up this week also includes fellow fbi cohort levins (aka sleater brockman) plus foreign dub, typhonic, ryan lazy, jonny faith, fangle and more. the club, which is privately owned, faces closure due to lack of lawn bowls business, so hopefully getting some beats on the go will help to boost the coffers. runs from midday til 8pm (i’ll be there 6pm), $10 tax includes lawn bowls all day, or $5 just for the tunes. more info at thepbc.org.au/greenbeats.

UBER LINGUA – SUNDAY 10th Dec with Ollo & Charlie McMahon

big week at uber lingua this week – here’s the deets…

International music crew, Uber Lingua, continue their summer ǃÚarvo-eveningǃ٠residency at the Abercrombie Hotel in Ultimo on Sunday 10th December.

olloFollowing the release of their new album, ǃ?The If Ifǃ?, Sydney electronic duo Ollo (right) relish the opportunity offered by Uber Lingua to experiment with a broader musical remit, – embracing the mantra of ǃ?extreme cultural diversityǃ? they hit the Abercrombie with a German DJ set they describe as ǃ?Neu Deutsche Welleǃ?.

Resident Mashy P will be dj-ing in tandem with a live performance from Charlie McMahon – generally regarded as one of the world’s top exponents of the Didjeridu, and inventor of the ǃ?seismic recording deviceǃ?, the Face Bass (designed to give the didge a deeper, rounded sound). McMahon was a principle member of Gondwanaland, who released five albums throughout the 80s and 90s ÇƒÏ and were among the first musicians worldwide to mix indigenous music with contemporary production.

Following their hugely successful performance at Uber LinguaǃÙs launch party, house band Social Progression Sound System return with their live blend of funk, latin and hip hop. Developing out from the initial MC & DJs set-up, Social Progression bring a full seven-piece live band to Uber Lingua on Sunday 10th.

Guest DJ Jack Shit is well renowned around Sydney for his eclectic and remarkable DJ sets, and for his Saturday afternoon excursions on FBi Radio. HeǃÙll be pulling a characteristically diverse set of international tunes from his box, focussing on latin & gypsy flavours – old, new, borrowed and blue.

Stu Buchanan (from FBiǃÙs Fat Planet) rounds out the bill in classic Uber Lingua style – mixing baile funk, bhangra, dancehall, afro hiphop, reggaeton, Baltimore, kuduro, latino and balkan beats.

Set in the sunny outdoor settings of the Abercrombie garden and with hot fresh food on the barbie, Uber Lingua runs from 4pm til late. Free before 7pm, five bucks after. All the right ingredients for the perfect Summer Sunday.

UBER LINGUA, SUNDAY 26 NOVEMBER

it’s week two of the uber lingua summer residency at the abercrombie hotel in sydney. i’ll be joined by live performances from wire mc and wei zen, plus dj prince v from the herd). here’s the blurb…

AustraliaǃÙs international music crew, Uber Lingua, hit their stride with week two of their new summer residency at the Abercrombie Hotel in Ultimo on Sunday 26th November.

wire-mc Indigenous hip hop artist Wire MC (right) headlines with a live set of his self-proclaimed ǃ?country rebelǃ? and ǃÚabo-digitalǃ? beats. A Gumbayngirri descendent from Bowraville (NSW), Wire MC has become a familiar, rousing force at many venues around the country with appearances at Homebake, Womadelaide and Sydney Opera House. In offering a viewpoint that promotes positive co-existence, international film maker, George Gittoes (ǃÚSoundtrack to WarǃÙ) recently desribed him as ǃ?the best rapper in Australiaǃ?.

Armed with only voice, sampler and delay pedal, Wei Zen melds South East Asian sounds with contemporary electronica. Described by Radio NationalǃÙs Tim Ritchie as ǃ?an aural and mental adventureǃ?, Wei Zen is the creative force behind minimal electronic crew Tufa and has recently returned from two solo shows in Beijing. She heralds in the twilight with a live set at 6pm.
Bringing up the rear, The Herd bass player and long-time Frigid DJ Prince V drops tracks from his translingual collection, plus thereǃÙs sets from Argentine selector Spex and collaborator MC Hernan, and Uber resident Stu Buchanan (host of FBiǃÙs Fat Planet).

UBER LINGUA RETURNS TO SYDNEY

summer is about to get very interesting indeed for multi-lingual music heads. here’s everything you need to know, see you on the 19th…

UBER LINGUA RETURNS TO SYDNEY

AustraliaǃÙs international music crew, Uber Lingua, return to Sydney on November 19th to set up camp for a summer season at the Abercrombie Hotel in Ultimo. With their unique brand of ǃÚextreme cultural diversityǃÙ, Uber Lingua brings together resident selectors, house bands, guest sound systems and local trans-linguist DJs in the sunny outdoor settings of the Abercrombie garden ÇƒÏ and with exotic, international food on the barbie, all the right ingredients are in the place for the perfect Summer Sunday.

Uber Lingua has become a regular fixture at MelbourneǃÙs legendary St Jeromes for the last three years, mixing alternative international sounds such as baile funk, bhangra, dancehall, afro hiphop, reggaeton, Baltimore, kuduro, latino and balkan beats with electro, rock, hiphop and all other genres from regions less travelled. The brainchild of broadcaster and producer Brendan Palmer (bP), the project has since been extended into Hobart, Adelaide, Brisbane and last year to Candys Apartment in Sydney – as well as broadcasting weekly on SBS Alchemy Radio.

Uber Lingua has welcomed many Australian underground DJs and performers into the family (including Raceless from Curse Ov Dialect, Mashy P, Wire MC, Sven Simulacrum and more) as well as providing a platform for international acts such as Nortec Collective / Bostich (Mexcio), Ove Naxx (Japan), Deadbeat (Germany), Sinpare (Kenya), Filastine (U.S.), Liberation Chabalala (South Africa) and Future World Funk (U.K.). The crew also recently supported Lily Allen on her Australian promo tour.

Firing up the Abercrombie this summer will be a crew of Uber Lingua Sydney residents including local producer and promoter Mashy P, Stu Buchanan (host of FBiǃÙs Fat Planet), Sheerien (from SBSǃ٠Alchemy) and bP. In addition, Uber Lingua breaks the mould on the traditional DJ concept by introducing resident house bands and sound systems ÇƒÏ Gypsy Dub Sound System (featuring Trevor Brown of Waiting For Guinness) and Social Progression Sound System (funked Latin dub hop) – playing their own individual sets as well as blending their sounds into the DJ sets across the night. Each Uber event will climax with DJ tag teams (one on, one off) bringing the collective together as one.

Future Sundays include guest touring internationals & other local trans-linguists including Man About Town, Ollo DJs, Hezekiah, sakamoiz, Prince V, James Locksmith, Spex, Wire MC & Morganics.

In The Mix Interview for Dust Tones

this saturday (13th) i’m playing a dj set at the monthly club ‘dust tones‘ at the clare hotel, broadway, sydney. expect the usual mix of electronic, hip hop, dancehall, crunk, baile funk, ragga, bollywood, baltimore, breakcore and other global beats. should be a great night, some fantastic djs on the bill – if international music gets you hot under the collar, this will be an excellent chance to gorge.

here’s the blurb: “This month Dust Tones dives into the world of Global Underground. From Bollywood to Hollywood. Bhangra to Baltimore, Afro beat to African, Latin to Laos this is a trip around the musical world in just one night. Out of retirement comes Bhangra legend Earth Brown Kid, champion of the Marsala Mix radio show. Joining him is global music don Stuart Buchanan, queen of bhangra bootlegs Sheerien Salindera and Mr Latin Man About Town.” more info at invadarecords.com

australia’s dance music portal inthemix.com.au recently published an interview with me to tie-in with the dust tones night. read it here, but here’s a cut’n’paste for speed:


 

IN THE MIX – Stuart Buchanan: Unearthing the bare facts

As the general manager of FBI radio, Stuart Buchanan could present any show that he felt passionate about, but it’s global music that is his calling. Benjamin Chinnock unearths the bare facts.

Original from Scotland, Buchanan has been DJing since he was 18, but by his own admission ‘he still can’t mix for shit.’ As the host of international music show Fat Planet on Sydney’s FBI, he shares his love of electronic, rock, hip hop, dancehall, crunk, baile funk, raga, Bollywood and African, all with an international flavour. Buchanan divulges his reasons for being drawn to this type of music. “I was tired of hearing the same ideas played over and over again, tired of reading about all of the same bands, week in week out. Getting into international music has re-invigorated my passion – I’m hearing brand new ideas all the time; ideas generally not found in mainstream or indie media.”

Global music is a contentious word, definition and genre, with many a conversation debating its merits and meaning ending with the United Nations. For Buchanan the answer is simple, “If you had to define it, it would be anything from outside the Anglo / American axis.” Global music has also been labelled as an over conceptualised marketing ploy created to sell records to sympathetic world types.  Buchanan understands this, “it is a tricky definition.  There’s an old misconception that anything global or ‘world’ has to be traditional tribal music from the Sahara, when actually it could just as easily be neo-acid-psych-rock from Japan.”

Often used as an umbrella term, global music covers many genres and in the late nineties it suffered at the hands of hype and the next-big-thing syndrome, with genres like Asian underground being push by music magazines to a point of doing more harm then good. Buchanan is of the view that, “labels are helpful but only in a lazy sense.  One person’s underground is another person’s mainstream.  ‘Asian underground’ is a classic example of an old label that has lost its relevance and now means nothing.”

While Australia has a healthy music scene Global music is yet to find a solid home. When international artist tour they do draw solid crowds however there has yet to be a regular party continue to push the sound. Buchanan is of the opinion that, “there’s a good few non-traditionalists bucking the trend, particularly the Uber Lingua crew and producers like Mashy P.  But when you have traditional world music juggernauts such as Womad perpetuating an old-school view of global music, it’s very hard to rise above that and prove there’s an alternative.”

With Australia being a multicultural society you would think that it would be a melting pot for different cultures and music. Buchanan has experienced this first hand. “I’m a Scotsman, living in Marrickville, surrounded by Greek, Chinese, Indian, Italian and Danish communities – I’ve never lived in a more multicultural suburb.  How far that tolerance extends is a matter for much debate.”

Name five artist or songs that we are likely to hear you play?
Bondo De Role (Brazil)
Mutamassik (Egypt)
Stacs Of Stamina (Sweden)
Ghislain Poirer (Canada)
DJ Rupture (Spain)

M.I.A vs Missy Elliot, who would win the battle?
Hopefully they’d just kiss and make up.

Punjabi MC or Jay-Z?
Beyonce.

Spank Rock or DJ Assault feat Q Tip?
Spank Rock would tap their ass.

Bollywood or Hollywood?
Ed Wood.

Thievery Corporation or Asian Dub Foundation?
Thievery would take it lying down.

Stuart Buchanan from FBI’s Fat Planet plays Dust Tones, Saturday May 13th, with a Global Underground special featuring Earth Brown Kid,  Sheerien Salindera from SBS Alchemy, Man About Town, Mr Pez, Frenzie and Bentley. It all happens at The Clare Hotel, Broadway. For more info check out ITM Whatson.

CODA & INGA LILJESTROM

coda & inga

SUNDAY 22nd I’ll be DJing at the BECKS FESTIVAL BAR as part of the SYDNEY FESTIVAL, supporting Sydney artists CODA & INGA LILJESTROM with fellow DJs Groovescooter. Tickets are $16+bf from sydneyfestival.org.au.

Here’s some more info from the promoters:

ǃ?Bring no expectations, as CODA can present anything from impassioned strings, exotic backdrops and subtle electronics to rainbow-clad expression dancers threatening to knock the speaker over.ǃ? [Sydney Morning Herald]

CODAǃÙs performing history since their formation in 1994, is extensive. They are no strangers to the festival circuit, having played at the Woodford, Big Day Out, Belingen Global Carnival, Blue Mountains Folk Festival, Peats Ridge, Sydney Festival, Queenscliff, Glenworth Valley Festivals, Newtown Festival, the Sydney Opera House Studio and recently in Easter 2005, at the Sydney Cockatoo Island Festival.

CODA joins forces with the Björk-like INGA LILJESTROM and her septet Elk in a night of audio-visual utopianism. Her voice has graced recordings from Gerling (hit single Dust Me Selecta), Friendly and d.i.g. (directions in groove РCurveystrasse) whereas her own compositions beautifully merge an amazingly individual voice with evocative lyrics, string arrangements, plus an unexplainable otherworldly quality.

Along with guest vocalist ABBY DOBSON (LeonardoǃÙs Bride/Paul Mac) and combined string sections, the groups unite in a musical melange of exotic rhythms, haunting electronics and rockinǃ٠grooves.
