Daughter Produkt ? +

I have lots of mostly Heinrich Mueller related news I've been storing up for you. First off there appears to be another MySpace collaboration in progress called Daughter Produkt. While there is yet to be any music or videos added to the site it does list the other members as being Moreno Paradox, Douglas McCarthy and Heinrich Mueller. It's been up since October 2007 and their location is given as Germany. The only member I found a possible identity for was the Douglas McCarthy of Nitzer Ebb and while he does have a history of collaboration the main Nitzer Ebb website has yet to list this project as one of his. While I hate to be negative I must say that whoever they are, they have managed to saddle themselves with quite possibly one of the worst sounding names for a group ever, in my opinion. It does however contain the same amount of syllables as Dopplereffekt and ends with the same German spelling. If it’s for real I look forward to it but it could so easily be a hoax as well. Their photo makes me think it is legit though. I guess we’ll just have to wait for some music to arrive there.
Dopplereffekt played last weekend in Barcelona, Spain at Nitsa on 9th Feb. I just found out about it myself. A fairly poor video of it is up at YouTube. They seem to be dong a hit and run tour all over Europe right now since 2nd Feb in Sweden. The next show that I know of is on next weekend in Amsterdam, Holland at the Sugar Factory on 23rd Feb. I wonder if they have anything lined up for this weekend and what else is planned?
There’s been an intriguing Der Zyklus live video up for some time on You Tube but check out the primitive rendering of the Black Replica symbol which flashes up on the screen at the 5 min 10 sec mark. The girl by the way looks like To Nhan Le Thi and is using the same Korg keyboard which she used when appearing as Dopplereffekt in 2007.
Nice video here of Dopplereffekt as a duo at Basel, Switzerland in 2007.
While there are now tons of great music videos done by fans relating to Drexciya and Gerald Donald, one of my favourites is hard to find. I forget how its tagged but it’s a break-dancing video which uses the Dopplereffekt remix of Air’s ‘Le Soleil Est Pres De Moi’ from 2001. This is a real rarity anyway, it was only available on a free CD with some French music magazine I think. I’ve only heard it here myself. It’s also a great track, a personal favourite even.
I might as well give you some more links while I‘m about this. As you might know, the official video for Arpanet ‘NTT DoCoMo’ is up on You Tube and has already had well over 10,000 views. You might think that this figure would have to be the highest for anything related to Drexciya/Gerald Donald there to date. That honour would have to go to the video for ‘Satellites’ by Dopplereffekt which is about to break the 17,000 barrier. The official video for ‘Scientist’ is of course up there too. The next two links are for two ‘so great they should be official’ videos for Arpanet, ‘No Boundry Condition’ and ‘Infinite Density’ from Inertial Frame.
No Boundry Condition
Infinite Density
Finally, the best till last! Someone put up the Liz Copeland Detroit radio interview with James Stinson with some cool visuals on You Tube. This should give this important piece of the Drexciyan jigsaw some permanence and accessibility for all.

I don't know what your stance on these things are -- feel free to remove it if it violates your principles.
But here's a recording of the Swedish Radio broadcast of the 2008-02-02 Dopplereffekt show:

Just changed that, thanks. Had 2004 stuck in my head regarding that remix for some reason.

"It does however contain the same amount of syllables as Dopplereffekt and ends with the same misspelling."

these are actually not misspellings but proper german spellings.

I'm glad you like my Drexciya Interview video. It can now easily be accessed by anyone, which is fantastic.
