Self-labelled “Tha Vietnamists” and lifelong friends, Pho & Thu (DJ iRaize), founded the group over eight years ago, based on a mutual need to push musical boundaries as well as their own technical limits. They are based in Paris, France.
Their live performances best illustrate the magic of combined imagination: rare and traditional vinyl cut up with sampling, scratching, analog instruments, live musicians & the MPC Real Time Drumming. All this combined with killer beats to shake the floor! They played alongside international artists such as Kid Koala, Wu Tang Killa Beez,Busdriver, The Scratch Perverts, Dj Cam, Dj Kentaro …
The originality of their music has initiated worldwide collaborations with respected artists such as Shabazz the Disciple, Akon, Killarmy,Hell Razah (Sunz Of Man), Glasses Malone, Tariq.L , Genghis Khan, Non Genetic (USA), Mc Yoke (Japon), Ali (45 Scientific), La Fine Equipe (Paris), The Codefendants (Paris/Brooklyn) and so many more… They have also been invited to score movie soundtracks and skateboarding videos.
They released their first unofficial LP, “Iconoclast Sound Adventure” (2005). This year they’re releasing “The Cloud EP”, featuring 3 tracks from the forthcoming album “Cloud Adventures” (oct.2009).
This instrument is still brand new, but it would be an incredible experience to see multiple people with musical talent go to town on this thing to see what they can create.
It’s called the Yaybahar, created and performed by Görkem Şen.
Our friend, street artist LIAR BEN had been in Japan for the past 3 months as a resident artist with his art project SUGAR CANE LADY, focusing on the drawing of the iconic lady on the sugar cane juice carts.
This is his animated murals video, it took 25 days in total to complete.
Most of us only know Electronic for what it is today, but its history goes longer than than.
This is Delia Derbyshire, one of the female originators of Electronic Music.
Delia Ann Derbyshire (5 May 1937 – 3 July 2001) was an Englishmusician and composer of electronic music and musique concrète. She is best known for her electronic realisation of Ron Grainer’s theme music to the British science fiction television series Doctor Who and for her work with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
This is a must see for all electronic music lovers.
“We live in an age of technology in which machines touch every part of our lives. It is not suprising that music has also been influenced by technology.”
