NRSB-11 album announced

WeMe are currently listing an album by NRSB-11 coming soon on double LP. This collaboration between Heinrich Mueller and DJ Stingray has already produced one 12” on WeMe. My review of that release can be read here to fill in the details of the project.

Italian producer Frederico Leocata has been speaking about how Heinrich Mueller helped him get his music out. “I contacted Heinrich Müller in 2009 during the worst period of my life. We talked a lot and one night I decided to send my songs. The next day I checked my mail and, making compliments, he asked me the permission to send them to record labels close to him and so came Wémè.” Full interview at this link.

Arpanet live set & Drexciya tribute mixes

Snippets of 10 new Arpanet tracks from their current live show can now be heard on one of their booking agents, Futurity Works, SoundCloud. Some promising tracks here and quite different from the Dopplereffekt live sets for sure. Hopefully a sign of a new album at some point but I wouldn’t hold my breath. Check then out at this link.

I’m not sure how effective my idea to tell someone about Drexciya via Facebook, Twitter, real-world etc on James Stinson’s 10 year anniversary was (I did see reports on Twitter that for some people it was very noticeable on their chosen social network) but I do know that the traffic levels on DRL suddenly jumped 4 times the normal level that day and it tapered off to normal again over next few days. Perhaps it made some positive if intangible difference but he was remembered by many anyway. At least one more tribute mix to him was made as well, check it..

A 3 part tribute to Drexciya is currently being broadcast by a Dutch radio station, details here but first part is a mix so far.
First part can be listened to here.
