WE FORFEIT :: Radio Relativa #18 mayo

 

WE FORFEIT :: Radio Relativa #18 mayo

Diggin’ into some past favorites. Gems, care of Martin Haringer of Das M and Gimmik fame alongside the cracking Toytronic, are unearthed with Gimmik now back releasing on n5MD/Hidden Reality.



A generous mélange of ripe releases

For this one, Robbie has been diggin’ into some past favorites. Gems, care of Martin Haringer of Das M and Gimmik fame alongside the cracking Toytronic, are unearthed with Gimmik now back releasing on n5MD/Hidden Reality with a reissue of his Load Error EP which came on on Lapsus not too long ago.

We don’t wander too far down memory lane—a generous mélange of ripe releases is on offer to feast the ears. Schrödinger’s Box is weighed down with new music, Dmitry Distant & Norwell as well as Rapha (707) of Chateau Royal getting some well-deserved airtime. Sound Synthesis once again delivers the goods, this time for Distant Worlds with a track taken from Keith Farugia’s new 12”.

This month’s show is brimming with techno delights and more new music. Nuron being remixed by Kirk Degiorgio, Miles Atmospheric on Firescope, the depths of Artefakt. The lads have also plundered the collection for some lesser known machine music, Pigaja, Mod21 and Unam Zeitnab exploring the boundaries between dub techno and industrial.

Tracks that didn’t make it into WE FORFEIT’s sets from Bizarro are at the core of this month’s show. Horrorshow wave and brooding synth are Robbie’s out-takes with Chris upping the bpm with the fire and brimstone of Absolute Body Control, Jensen Interceptor and Challenger of the Unknown.

Two 7”s finish with more synth wave on offer from the Aesthetic, such a cracker, with the racing Neolicht from Relativ Kälte ending. Second last one of this season. Enjoy. ¡Besos a la distancia requerida.

WE FORFEIT :: Radio Relativa #17 LIVE @ Femur & Friends w/ Arch & Juanpablo (Frigio)

 

WE FORFEIT :: Radio Relativa #17 LIVE @ Femur & Friends w/ Arch & Juanpablo (Frigio)

With their first gig since January 2020, WE FORFEIT were delighted and more than ready when asked to share the hallowed Specka stage (with a brand new Funktion 1 sound system) with Arch and Juanpablo.

There are few places in Europe like Specka

There are few places in Europe like Specka. Buried amongst the office blocks and chain stores of the Spanish capital, this plucky venue has been a haven for electronic music since it first opened its doors more than thirty years ago. Some great nights have been had there, some late nights have been had in there. And the best of those nights? Undoubtedly the Femur parties.

For more than half a decade, Aitor Arch, DJ Arch, founder of the club-night and label, Femur, organized some of the best monthly music to be heard in Europe. The list of artists is as long as your arm, but to give a sample: Alden Tyrell, Beau Wanzer, Das Ding, Frak, Hyboid, Iron Blu, Kid Machine, Rude 66, Visonia, Solvent and many many more. With their first gig since January 2020, WE FORFEIT were delighted and more than ready when asked to share the hallowed Specka stage (with a brand new Funktion 1 sound system) with Arch and Juanpablo.

Seeing as we only have a two-hour slot on Radio Relativa, the seven plus hour session has been cut down to two of pure gold. Our host, Arch, dishes up some obscure gems in our first thirty minutes, before Chris, of WE FORFEIT fame, arrives for his thirty-minute segment of electronic goodness. Robbie is next with a mix of artists who have shared the Specka stage at Femur, all apart from Skanfrom who open his section, with Frigio’s very own Juanpablo ending with an unforgettable mix (like the one he did for us at Igloo some years back).

Recorded live at Specka Feb 28, 2021

WE FORFEIT (Mix 30) :: Radio Relativa #15 febrero – ¡El ACid!

WE FORFEIT (Mix 30) :: Radio Relativa #15 febrero – ¡El ACid!

¡Let’s have some El AÇID!

Thirty-nine years ago, the Roland Corporation had an idea. What if you replaced your bassist with a machine? Short Circuit 2? No. The result, the TB-303. Fix it up with your TR-606 drum machine and you could be your very own band! Who needs others to sooth the loneliness, eh Roland’s little silver machine was a failure. What came out of it didn’t sound like the smooth strumming of a bass guitar, it sounded like liquid tin poured across a xylophone. From such failings came something else, a movement and sound that might be tipping forty but is still full of vitality and verve: acid.

The history of the TB-303 is well known and here at WE FORFEIT we’ve tried to tell it in records. From the first acid house records of Chicago and, perhaps, the first use of a TB-303 on an album to modern day mutations, the lads are tripping down a squelchy lane. Brutality and brilliance abound as the molten messiness of the acid box is put through its paces, from expert knob twiddlers like AFX and Mike Dred to modern day noodlers like Kettel and EOD.

Chris gives us a full hour of acid assortments and sour selections that will leave teeth rattling and neighbors twitching curtains.

¡Let’s have some El AÇID!

WE FORFEIT (Mix 30) :: Radio Relativa #14 enero

 

WE FORFEIT (Mix 30) :: Radio Relativa #14 enero

Influences and inspirations is the focus with vinyl favorites from far and wide brought together to down a glass of Cava and belt out a few choice numbers.

Influences and inspirations is the focus with vinyl favorites

The New Year has been rung in at WE FORFEIT HQ, although it was a far-cry from the usual affair. With Chris locked-down in Valencia and Robbie snowed-in in Madrid, it was a truly socially distanced shindig. Such a time has given the lads time to reflect and get stuck into the record shelves. For this latest episode, the first of 2021, influences and inspirations is the focus with vinyl favorites from far and wide brought together to down a glass of Cava and belt out a few choice numbers.

Chris delves deep into the electro pioneer that was, is, and always will be, Cutting Records before Robbie introduces a techno favourite in the form of A13. We’re then led into the audio treats of Njimegen with selections from Deep Sound Channel and Shipwrec, including artists like 214, Luxus Varta and The Exaltics.

Chris visits the weird and wonderful world of Sex Tags Mania, DJ Soto Fett’s label with its warren of sub-divisions and subterranean platforms as well as a quick visit to Miami’s Isophlux. The journey continues with a bit of misty-eyed nostalgia as Robbie reminisces about his time in Glasgow with a selection of Tabernacle tracks, four tracks that focus on live-acts seen play in Scotland and here in Madrid.

We end with a couple of general favs, Chris’ grá for Gesloten Cirkel and Robbie’s own for AFX. Last show of that season but more to come! ¡Feliz año a todos y hasta la próxima!
