Proyecto Lázaro

Los autóctonos se lo debemos todo al río, esa caudalosa arteria hacia el corazón del continente. Todas las cosas llegaban y partían flotando en el agua. Primero los troncos de los bosques, después el carbón y el hierro desde las minas. En estos altos hornos se forjaba el acero que abastecía las cadenas de montaje, aquí ardía el lignito que movía la central eléctrica, en esta factoría se ensamblaban las limusinas de los congresistas y en este parking se estacionaban las berlinas nuevas.

En nuestra promoción, los chicos aplicados se matriculaban en ingeniería, mientras el resto abandonaba la escuela para ingresar en los talleres. Quien no pintaba carrocerías, montaba radiadores, o destilaba líquido de frenos. La ropa de todo el mundo olía a lubricante y la gasolina costaba 15 centavos el galón.

Un día algo, que hasta ese momento estuvo ahí pero nadie recordaba qué era, desapareció sin dejar rastro. Luego empezaron a faltar más cosas, cada vez más importantes, hasta que el alcalde se vio obligado a admitir que la situación ya no era sostenible. Solo permanecieron en sus casas quienes no pudieron marcharse. La hierba creció como una plaga. Las casas abandonadas ardían tras las camionetas cargadas de enseres.

Cuando se extinguió el fuego llegaron los románticos, enamorados de las ruinas industriales y las gangas reconvertibles el lofts. Les gusta descubrir antes que nadie los sitios con posibilidades. No les dan miedo las calles oscuras, la falta de dotaciones ni las manadas de perros lobo que vagan por la nieve. Se apuntan a las comunidades que convierten en parques los solares, aprenden a hacer techno y dejan la pickup en el patio trasero para moverse solo en bicicleta.

Sin embargo estamos satisfechos, van a revitalizar la ciudad con sus startups y salvarnos de los fondos de inversiones.

About the release: 

We welcome Lebanese born, Stockholm based techno DJ & producer Simon Haydo in our midst. This exceptional talent has already made waves with his own label, DEM Records and the infamous Studio Barnhus label.
He delivers 4 trademark hypnotic little monsters for BALANS. Classic & retro sounding tracks. An offering that is dynamic yet feels contemporary at the same time. Itʼs Simonʼs strongpoint to be able to create a lot of tension, suspense and dynamics with only a few elements, very much like old masters such as Daniel Bell and Robert Hood.

About the artist:

As a DJ, producer and label manager, with tracks and EP’s on respected labels such as Studio Barnhus, Balans, Stockholm LTD and MindTrip set for 2014, Simon Haydo is without a doubt one to keep an eye on.

Born in Lebanon, raised in the outskirts of Stockholm, Haydo has been collecting and playing vinyl since the late nineties. After holding a residency at Stockholm’s legendary underground party “Kruthuset” in the mid 00′s, he went on to start producing music. Haydo released his debut EP in 2008 on Stockholm LTD. In 2013 Simon Haydo started the vinyl-only imprint “DEM” to function as a platform for his own productions, releasing a new EP every 7 weeks. Haydo’s music can be described as classic yet contemporary, Detroit and Chicago influenced Techno. He relies on old-school aesthetics both when producing music and preparing DJ sets.

Simone Gatto, con su segundo lanzamiento en Out-ER, confirma su serena manera de entender la electrónica.

Debido al virtuosismo en el manejo de maquinaria específica, aquí se muestra un sonido que pretende transmitir sus propios pensamientos. A veces apacibles, a veces más oscuros. Según nos cuenta, cada uno de los tracks representa una acción contra las dificultades de la vida. Igual que los buenos momentos se alternan con los malos, nuestras acciones causan consecuencias que deben ser encaradas.

Holzwege EP es un inequívoco guiño al sonido Detroit absolutamente recomendable.

Press release:

“This isn’t a time-lapse,” he said, breathlessly. “This is time…collapsed.”
His eyes glazed over for a moment as he retreated deep inside himself.
“Don’t you see?” He exclaimed, wild-eyed, looking as though possessed by some silent anomaly of his own
making. “Don’t you see what this means?”

He was stammering. Shaking violently, uncontrollably, as if his bones were rebelling. The eyes had grown
wild now, roving feverishly about their sockets, trying to drink in the velveteen void that lay all around him.
Sweat poured from his sodden brow, streaking his ashen face to gather in salty pools about his mouth – not
that it cared much, held captive by a different sort of chaos. Words were failing him, you see. No matter.
What use did he have for such abstract glyphs anymore? The world had fallen away. He was all alone. At
last, he could begin.

From dreamy opener “Interdimensional Beings” through to its synthy, Detroit-summoning close, there’s
something instantly warm and familiar about ‘Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit’. Conjuring up memories of
all those records you used to play and love, here Enklav. newcomer Jeremiah flexes wraithlike machine
music into an array of contemplative floor jams. With its fuzzy electro pulse, tracks like “Interplanetary
Phenomenon Unit” allude to some spectral Drexciya. Elsewhere Warp and Rephlex leave their dusty,
haunted steps. But these references are only fleeting and incomplete because, like the rest of the Enklav.
collection, this is music in a world of its own.
