Limited Addiction x Democrazy present…

I have to admit… I’ve been keeping a secret from you. While you were sleeping I’ve been out and about and very busy behind the scenes. While getting Series 3 ready I also sat down with the kind people at Democrazy to get the very first Limited Addiction clubnight going. Artists and venue have been booked and I can tell you right now it will be BIG! September 23rd & Vooruit Gent that’s all I’m saying for now. Stay tuned and check back for lots more on that!

Jon Convex – Convexations EP (3024)

Sunday, June 19th, 2011


Hot on the heels of Julio Bashmore’s release, 3024 returns with Jon Convex’ (one half of Instra:mental) Convexations EP. Opener ‘Convexations’ raises the curtain with traces of Yamaha fog and a hollowed out kick before a bassline fusing Giorgio Moroder with The Human Centipede rears up to provide unrelenting forward momentum. Glimpses of dialogue warped to the point of gibberish, an ever growing chorus of muttering percussive synths and a zero gravity drop complete the picture of a ride in cattle class all the way to Pittsburgh.
‘Falling Again’ dials back its predecessor’s intensity, evoking a robotic production line take on UKG. A metronomic 2-step rhythm forms the basis for a replicant diva’s final performance while another strikingly organic bass line spends the duration of the track expanding and arcing with all the grace of a particularly low frequency solar flare.
Exclusive to the digital version is ‘Order Into Chaos’. The first Jon Convex track we heard, a particularly intense 3024 board meeting saw it declared too good to leave sitting on the shelf. The most (warehouse) floor focused track offered here and a heads down simmering vat of acid, the surface of which sporadically erupts in frothing signal distortion and T1000 kicks.
With the audio content taking a turn into harder and darker territory, Erosie’s inimitable artwork provides an inky curve ball by taking his collage series into a softer but no less vivid palette providing another perfect visual counterpoint to proceedings.

Jazzneversleeps ft JtotheC – I’ll Take Care Of You / Diepgank

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

On-Point Records’ next release comes in the form of a 12″ slice of vinyl, which is a first for the label after their first 7″ releases. Of  more importance however is the music that was masterfully cut into said slab of acetate. Brussels’ Jazzneversleeps returns to the label after his Natte Vinger tune that was an instant classic with two choice cuts: side A features JtotheC’s smooth vocals on top of stuttering rhythms and soulful synths to make I’ll Take Care Of You. Flip it over for Diepgank which is the one for me. Hauting vocals moaning on top of a syncopated beat that shuffles along… pure gold! Couldn’t find a vid for Diepgank but here’s the one for the A side: directed by Ecklewood…
