“Obsqure & Suz succeed to create a meandering but drifty piece about transition with their current song “Brave New World”. The powerful melancholic music settles into a sad sense of knowing with the voice appearing. “Brave New World“ is an unexpected forceful goodbye to past selves and lighthearted days.
This is the first single release from the upcoming album “Crossroads” on SPRINGSTOFF.

AH: A chill, layered track with good lyrics sung by a vocalist who captures your attention right away.

Drummer and producer Jörn Bielfeldt (aka JBXDR) is an artist between worlds. His work kaleidoscopes between electronic and acoustic music, New York and Berlin, farmlands and touring.
“Wave Talk”, his upcoming release as solo artist JBXDR, is a fusion of worlds and technologies in album form. The New York subway bounces off tractor sounds from farmlands, YouTube samples on breakbeats, fast-paced Berlin noise on Pacific waves and winds – fabricated by a Roland MS 20.
JBXDR curates an individual setup for every track: composed of hundreds of different samples and rhythms, which pave the way for his improvisation between jazz, techno, and hiphop. Through this technique he demonstrates wonderfully warm sound collages (Wave Talk, Surfing a Wave of Populism) on mechanical funk as well as floaty groovy beats (Accelerate Everything), which are always organically arranged during live shows.
For JBXDR, being a solo drummer means constantly expanding tonal boundaries and connecting musical traditions with the mainstream.

AH: Some of the most interesting stuff I've heard in a while. Perfect for chilling on a summer afternoon or dancing on a summer night.

The EP “A form of travel unknown to humans” is chasing us. Guiding and forcing a way simultaneously. The sound is harsh but has an immaculate precision to it –void of air- compelling the listener toward a light, seducing us to tear through the night.
We enter with „S.M.O.D. - STICKS” a deep and magnetic sound opening up slowly, starting to breathe and to merge into “S.M.O.D. - CELL CULTURE” which gives a much more metallic flavour but never the less beat driven - fast and strident- maybe even hasty, pushing to skip a beat of the heart. To finish off with “S.M.O.D - Pulse” carrying an unsettling almost disturbing quality, formulating a mechanical sound alienated from the human experience. The EP creates a seductive space outside our comfort zone, inviting to explore a space and travel unknown to humans. Gimme more.
S.M.O.D. is an exciting new project with the two friends Oliver Deutschmann & Smilla. The vinyl will be out in a few weeks and was mastered by Tim Xavier at ManMadeMastering.
The new Label TAKTSCHLEIFE was founded 2018 by Smilla and Rainer Scheerer. It stands for a straight Techno sound.

AH: More great summer party music. Check it out on SoundCloud.

PROXIMITY is an a/v techno intervention by Berlin-based sonic artists HYENAZ. This damp and amphibious track extrapolates from field recordings of an immense network of stuttering frogs, which HYENAZ encountered on Yorta Yorta country in South-Eastern Australia. The frogs reacted to their presence and movement by altering the intensity and volume of their vocalizations, creating an organic techno. The singular texture of PROXIMITY is the result of this collaboration with wetland wildlife.
The frogs’ reaction to their sense of [in]security led HYENAZ to draw parallels to how physical and emotional proximity affect human societal relations, a concept they explore in the slime-covered video for PROXIMITY. Released by the poetry journal Interim, this visual artwork lurches and staggers across bodies in motion to ask the question, “Does our Proximity Bind Us?” It features movement artists Danilo Andrés, Tereza Silon, Simon(e) Jaikiriuma Paetau, Bishop Black and ROC and was filmed by cinematographers Jo Pollux and Raja de Luna, with direction and editing by HYENAZ themselves.
PROXIMITY is the first in a series of singles, mixed-reality performances and a/v installations entitled FOREIGN BODIES. The works surface from an ongoing practice of learning from the individuals and communities who move in resistance to, in spite of, and as a result of, the management and control of bodies by nation-states, corporations and other authoritarian actors.
PROXIMITY will be released on SPRINGSTOFF with five remixes by Dorninger, okpk, The Shredder, El Fulminador, and DFUMH on June 1st, 2018.

AH: This is music you'll for sure want at all your parties this summer. Check out Hyenaz on SoundCloud.

Antichrist And The Rapture: Some people today have the idea that the falling away in 2 Thessalonians 2 3 refers to the rapture. Apparently they don’t realize things can’t fall up. These people should really go back to school and take grade 3 science.

Antichrist Is The Son Of Perdition: I never had that connected before. The son of perdition is referred to in 2 Thessalonians 2 and the only other time the Bible uses these words is in reference to Judas, which indicates the antichrist will come from inside the church.

Antichrist Is The Man Of Sin: Rather than hyperfocusing on which single man will be the antichrist or the man of sin, Christians should focus more on the false Christians and false teachings that are presently in the church.

Antichrist In The Temple Of God: Though the antichrist will arise from inside the church, the temple in Jerusalem will still be rebuilt.

Revelation 11 1-2 says, “and there was given me a reed like unto a rod and the angel stood saying rise and measure the temple of God and the altar and them that worship therein but the court which is without the temple leave out and measure it not for it is given unto the gentiles and the holy city shall they tread underfoot forty two months.”

This indicates that there will be an actual temple. Otherwise, what is the significance of the court of the Gentiles?

Antichrist And The Restrainer: The restrainer of the antichrist is not the Holy Spirit within the Christian church, but rather God Himself. We know from the book of Job that God is the one who restrains Satan from completely taking over the world.

How can the restrainer be the Roman empire? The Roman empire fell in AD476, but the Catholic church was started by the Roman emperor Constanteen in AD325.

Antichrist Revealed In His Time: How can the 1260 days be 1260 years when we’re still dealing with Daniel’s 70 weeks.

The first 69 weeks were 483 years from the rebuilding of the temple to when Jesus came. The seventieth week is divided in two. The first three and a half days are the three and a half years of Jesus’ ministry. Therefore, the rest of this period must be three and a half calendar years, not 1260 calendar years.
