return to sender…….and ][‘re back…………

so its been such a long time, but better late than never

first off, apologies and thanks to guest contributor  Native Sound for his Buddha like patience

Being like a dear in headlights when it comes to anything that’s letters, symbols and numbers and can’t be found in a pocket dictionary it has taken ][ a long time to get this show back on the road….. but here it is……. and on the road ][ are

Lots of exciting developments on the way, including complete overhaul of web home for the imminent release of ][ first piece of wax heralding launch of Cut Mistake Music record label …… pretty excited about the sound waves, hope to share with one and all and contribute some love and positivity into the medium that keeps ][ the right side of sanity

This mix was submitted right around the time things went skyways on the blog front, right around the time blogger unceremoniously dumped us from ][ home which was really their home all along,,,,,,, google throwing their shoulders around, makin moves like they are ready and itchin to make money off the music business,,,,,,, good luck to ’em, good old corporate america, so warm and full of love

But back to Native Sound, it is a pleasure to restart with this gem……..>>><<<

Native Sound, based out of Brooklyn here in NYC, is no stranger to true New York house music,,,,,,, living and breathing the soul of house music Native Sound has been plying his trade solid and steady for the past few years, sharing with us his dj and production skills. Earlier this year saw the release of Eyes to the Soul on Fred P’s Soul People Music which followed the late 2009 release of Edge of the City on the Spanish label Minuendo

This fall will see the exciting launch of Native Sound’s own label Cortelyou Road Recordings
On The Corner Vol. 1 will be the debut release for the new Brooklyn NYC based label and not one to be missed featuring the work of James Duncan, Alex Agore, Red Rack’em and Native Sound himself……..don’t sleep y’all

zung zeng

its end of a year, maybe even the end of a decade but no point in gettin lost, smothered and drowned in best of the best of the best of the best of the best of by someone who is better than you are lists

taking a side step from our regular music domain to give a heads up on some fresh productions

force quit: third corner left

this time from great friends in marseille
raphael and fabien launched the net-label zung zeng earlier this year and under the duo’s moniker ‘force quit’ time to be treated with their first release ‘air cut ep’
these guys are providing a healthy dose of dub-based, mediterranean fused electronic music to the local scene

the name zung zeng stems from the inspiration and subsequent homage to the great jamaican yellowman
these guys love their dub and reggae
one has to visit their part of the world to understand what a role this music plays in their society and culture
here is a stream of one of the tracks from their debut release
and go check out the entire release for free download

smirk alert

smirk live at the unsound festival, krakow, poland

sittin on this one so long it has started to fester
but better late than never

so smirk is the musical creative arm for the one man multi-national corporation that is brandon wolcott
is there anything this man cannot do?
the short answer is no. the long answer is really long and involves a shady arms brokering with a persian state and a failed commissioned collaboration with the famed antarctic penguin orchestra (some dispute over who was allowed wear black & white on the cover art which resulted in his deportation from the great tundra and the entire project being canned).

this guy can pop and lock with the best of ’em. new york rumor mill has it that smirk turned down a lead dance roll in britney’s ‘toxic’ tour to focus his endeavors on sound design for the big stage and the avant-gastric-alchemy exploration of dance music.

thankfully for the new york music scene he stayed & one of the finest all round talents is really coming into his own these past couple of years. currently on tour in the balkans and eastern europe smirk has been turning heads with his dj and live sets all year, not to mention the wonderful, unforgettable production that was and everyone laughed back in june.

this year has seen him release a wonderful long player on archipel even beauty gets older and rock dancefloors from new york to berlin with his collaboration on ‘the therapist’ with good old friends wolf + lamb

so here is his live set from this months unsound festival in krakow, poland.
this same festival is going to annex new york next year and bring the moritz von oswald trio to the eastern seaboard…..going to be epic…if you havent heard their vertical ascent release this year, get it,,,,,,, the evolution of electronic music as it morphs with the the ghosts of coltraine and davis.

smirk’s set is full of his trade mark wonderful twists and turns and riddled with his unique sense of playfulness and humor.
thanks again to brandon for sharing this gem…………….enjoy

here is the promotional video for smirks release on archipel……..highly recommended release

after a forced exodus from digital interconnectivity …. glad to be able to reconnect …..
this involved a car … a bicycle … a skull … and mother earth ………… in that order ……
hit & run to double fracture head trauma, internal bleeding, brain air bubble, and a very hairy 24hrs …….
……………….. and a police force that only give a shit about what deli they’re gettin their free lunch from …………..
dont get ][ started …………
……..yeah fuck the lot of them …… not a time to warm the heart of my cooling faith in humanity

… but not the right time to hand in the playing cards yet though ……..
mega tough recovery ….. physically and emotionally …. with some nerve damage to the right ear and a permanent scar in the form of constant pitch from left to right and notch of nerve ending mid/high frequency loss

…… with the help of friend and mentor, the very very peter venuto, and his incredibility challenging electric rainbow machine and the healing mandalas sent to ][ during recovery you can be bet your bottom dollar ][][ will get to the bottom of some LED dosage to help in the regeneration of those nerves ….. (hang on is a dollar still worth anything?)
…… induction, resonance, ode to teslian dreams ….. there will be light and energy at the end of every true tunnel

………. its nice to eventually say that the podcast series is back up and running with much news and exciting projects to come over the coming months ………..

hot & sweaty

so here is something real special!!!
eric wrenn first came into the cut&mistake radar back in january at what turned out to be the last party at the legendary, post supreme trading, brooklyn bushwick ‘party loco’ enclave

the party turned out to be an impromptu madhouse ……… the kind of party where the kinetic energy was just bouncing from one sweaty body to another …… and then up stepped eric onto the decks and just raised that voltage another notch

all vinyl ….. all classic tracks ][ never heard before …… absolutely off the chain, hook and everything and anything that can be considered to be off the ……..
eric was kind enough to do a mix for ][ here and its an absolute cracker and once again don’t know have half the tracks dropped and wondering how ][ got this far in life without having these stormers grace ][ ears
on top of everything else this guy is one hell of an awesome graphic designer working on a variety of awesome projects including beautiful intricate cover design of seth troxler’s/sex trothler “sexplosion ep” on wagon repair recordings (seth followed eric on the decks that same night)….check out his work

hot & sweaty
