A few days ago saw on my Facebook feed a 20-meter high sculpture by hand crochet tent, created by the Brazilian artist Ernesto Net and placed inside Zurich’s main train station – little I knew about its actual purpose. As it turns out, music and architectural design mashed into one beautiful project meant to serve for a debut scene and a wonderful meeting point. For this project Nordstern Basel and Fondation Beyeler collaborated with the newly formed music band, Lost Souls of Saturn to create a special moment. Lost Souls of Saturn is a duo consisting of none other than producer Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa. The two of them are no stranger at working together, as Troxler had several collabs with the sound scientist Moffa, who is known for his ‘out of this world’ ambient works. As for Troxler, it kind of shook me into my chair. The DJ is publicly seen as being a sensual type of artist, so this comes as a big surprise. And to close this little note, the event happened on July 12th with a little over an hour long live debut. You can watch and listen to the whole set here.
Maceo Plex is awakening his Maetrik alter ego by planning on releasing new stuff in late September under, yes, Maetrik name. I’ve been dying on hearing if that’s any news of his comeback, and voila, it happened!
And of course I’ve done my Sherlock work, after which I’ve concluded the following: the new EP is appropriately named ‘Return’, and to make it even better, the artist is giving us the possibility of choosing between a vinyl or digital version. A teaser track came together with the announcement of ‘Return’, giving us a small taste of what’s yet in hiding, till 29 September, date announced by Clash Lion records, the Barcelona-based label, who’s responsible for this release.
On the ‘Cortex 11-B’ teaser track, I first stumbled on its non-poetic name, which has confused my brain cells greatly. Once I’ve got it, everything seemed better, and I obviously very much enjoyed listening to it.
