RDV015… It’s here!! “Sessions EP” by RMFK

RDV015 - RMFK Sessions EP ArtworkWe at Redevice have always wanted to release some of Robin Kampschoers awesome music. And we know that he, aside from his crowd rocking techno, makes incredible good ambient and dub techno. And if it is weird and perky, we like it.

Robin decided to share his ambient and dub techno under a new moniker. As RMFK he was more than happy to donate some of his awesome music to us. And we at Redevice want to spread this through the worldwideweb, directly into your sound system. RMFK did not only give us a couple of tracks: he gave us a full seven track EP and titled it the ‘Sessions EP’. Seven tracks that should be listened as if watching a movie. It isn’t about the individual tracks. It’s about the narrative tale that is told by the composition of all tracks combined. So make sure to download the full album and just let yourself get float away on the beautiful soundscapes that RMFK whispers in your ear.

Be warned: if you play this EP really loud, you could also be overcome with a tinkly feeling in the stomach. That feeling that tells you to start dancing, right away. To add a little bit extra of that tinkly feeling we asked Brendon Moeller to do a remix on one of the tracks. And as you know Brendon has ‘the Force’. So he didn’t just made one remix, he did two!! One as his alter ego Echologist and one as Brendon Moeller. 

Combine all of this together and you’ll get a mind boggling release… A release of which we at Redevice Recordings are very, very proud. And yup folks, it’s still for free…

New Release: RDV013 Dieb – ‘Nachtlicht’

redevice_013It’s been a while, but we’re back with an awesome release of one of our old time favourites: Berlin resident Dieb. RDV013 – ‘Nachtlicht’ sounds as fresh and crisp as a cold winter morning but simultaneously invokes the warmth of a New Orleans jazz brass musician. Besides the über-trippy main course by Dieb, Anonym serves up a hypnotizing remix of the title track ‘Nachtlicht’. This 13 minute long work-out is a whole universe by itself; even if you want to snap back to reality the old Detroit preacher vocal throughout urges you to throw caution to the wind, all goddamn night long.

Go to release

RDVMX003 and interview from Elbee Bad

Because of the upcoming edition of Redevice invites… Rush Hour with Virgo Four and Elbee Bad on the 17th of may in the Melkweg venue in Amsterdam, we had a little Q&A with headliner Elbee Bad aka ‘the Prince of Dance Music’.

And since music can tell what a thousand words can’t, Mr. Bad also prepared a special mixtape for y’all to get jiggy with. Enjoy the enlightening interview and get in that right mood for the 17th of may – hope to see you there!

The interview:

RR – You’ve recently gained much praise and well-deserved attention with the re-release of your 1988 till early 90’s material through the Dutch Rush Hour imprint. Since there seem to be some gaps in your productivity through the years, can you tell us a bit about your musical journey so far?

EB – Clarity.  It’s very possible that every year (since 1988) I’ve had a release.  Perhaps the 1st year spending time in Berlin there may have been ‘no release’. The times where one would say productivity paused or stopped?  No waaaay!  Distribution, marketing & impressive sale numbers was the only thing not moving. Productions & creations?  Every month for years there has been no pause, something is created. There is no turning it off.

Distribution. My journey even at times ‘sitting at the best possible position (sales person at record distribution companies) STILL, no deal of distribution ever became concrete for LaRhon, but look closer and almost every year ‘somethings’ been released from Bad Productions..

The sales and to who?  My own label never lost money on any release.  Never made a lot of money on any release either.  Those who bought Bad Productions?  More than not, the records are still played.  And so much more to be discovered…and still without any big marketing schemes.

When people (including myself) discover music, find music themselves its so much more satisfiying.   The simple push of a button and send a song to 999 people is not for me.

So back to your actual question, no gaps, just low key.  Over the years the musical journey has been from authentic Hip Hop *including pre House and early Techno (one & best example is Kraftwerk) which we *New Yorkers, included that vibe in what we penned as Hip Hop.  Production started there.  That mind set.  Synth sounds and BEATS!  Slo, moderate speed to fast!  Whatever!!

In the mid 90’s being emersed in Berlin Techno which included a vibe of UR (for they seemed to impact Berlin more than any others) I was influenced with a power and speed that New York Tech did not have.  House in Berlin had more speed and less soul.  Great area to learn ‘aggression without losing the ‘soul’ in my case.  And production at the time often pushed uP bpm’s.

Late 90’s I enter the Gigolo family which bought out the electro in me and allowed bpm’s to slow…or speed… From me, Hell preferred productions on the DeeP DARK side.  As a dj Gigolo parties allowed absolute freedom!!

Hitting 2000 I believe I was comfortable and musically on to ‘the next’ whatever that could be?  I was searching for it!!  Thoughts of LaRhon release “Gonna Be A Great Night” House not House!   What I thought/think to be ‘different’ yet any open House dj ‘could’ play it.  Jumping from 2000 till the present, I go back & forth between extreme Art of music, which is stuff I now understand ‘only few will overstand’ and that’s what comes from the heart!  The REAL!  Then there’s the brain- the side that says ‘this is for ‘the ‘ people.  Its music, as normal as I can be.  Which to me, means strip it down, or produce it ‘simply’.   Forget I’m a drummer, forget ‘musical skills’ forget the real meaning of Jazz.  Forget it all, consciously…and the dj brain takes over…making what I sometimes call “music for the immature musical mind.”  Nothing to do with age, but with a reality that simple shit runs shit in the 3rd dimension.  It’s a way of reaching others who may get insipired to get to the real.  It’s a way of eating.  Record companies seem to prefer it.  I’ll personally ‘take the art’.  The weird the OUT the box stuff! smile


RR - Can you tell us something about your musical influences and key artists of which you draw inspiration from?

EB - Inspiration and influence…To answer this I must start with a statement: musically I follow no one!

I love many & surely with the many things I love its embedded…and will come forth…That said, inspired & influenced by…

Maurice White of and Earth Wind & Fire, my biggest influence in the love and want to perform, to entertain.

Egyptian Lover & Juan Atkins both gave a bit of inspiration to ‘do it yourself’, along with my own situation…for example working in sales at music distribution centers.

Breaking it down to dance music, I’d have to say influence came from Larry Heard (I’ve more records with his name on it than any other, except eLBee BaD.).  He’s one of a few I’ve sampled as in loop de loop sample and add.  He’s one of a few producers I’ve actually covered.  One of his bass lines (Distant Planet) is played on a LaRhon record “Why Can’t We Live Together’’   Then there’s the name Barry White- beautiful orchestration over dance grooves!  Love IT!   Its been in my music since the beginnings (and now I have a quartet!  The P.O.D. Orchestra!  Latest ‘dude’ I’m ‘vibing’ with right now when creating musical art?  The name Quincy Jones is in my mind.


RR - How do you experience today’s New York house scene compared to 2 decades ago and what are the main differences, if any, compared to recent trips to Europe?

EB - 2 decades ago I swore by NY and the selectors who were doing it!

Something happened.  When GrandMaster Flash is not breaking NEW tunes and non stop new, different UNIQUE sounds & songs, somethings very wrong!!  NY seems to have gotten lost in the best of times, old times.  Old School.  I know there’s gotta be some pushing a potential NEXT but if they’re getting light of any kind is another story.  Into our world of electronics, congrats to his many successes, but I point fingers at George Morel having a string of commercial blasts that showed the world A type of NY House.  That type took over and became New York House.   Great for Strictly, not good for the world of creators or specifically copiers.  That’s what most did, copy.  To achieve the fame and fortune, lets all copy what he did because  it did so well.   Start point of ‘wtf is ArT in todays dance music.  Europe obviously is the bomb when it comes to Dance Music.  Just as many Jazz and Black musicians were respected & did better in Europe in the 60’s such a similar line is with House & Techno…unfortunately without most knowing the ties of club culture to its origins & ‘Blackness’, very very Gay Blackness!   However the music with or without The True Story Of House its still THANK CREATOR for those European ears & hearts who got it & did turn it into a world of new money making life changing world changing extremities!!  All we wanted to do was DANCE.   People invested a lot of money into sound, sound systems and the party basically was where the sound went.  Entry to get in?   Most went back to sound…Same sound systems in the early ‘NY dance hall days” were the soundsystems played outside, moved in the heat of summer, set up for free, played for…free, weekly.  Again, it was all about the dance!!


RR - Any future plans we should be aware of?

EB - Releases! Releases, releases and a tv show. Net tv, but a tv show. A very Untypical musical guests/interview show, concentrated on Berlin Underground the Djs world…Its going to be funny.  I’m the host.  Well actually it’s the boser/evil/ghetto yet super intelligent character  side of Mr. BaD:  L.B. GooD, he’ll be hosting, which means ‘talking A LOT of shit!’  That’s ALL I can say.

Redevice invites… Rush Hour @ klinch


Sorry dutch only… But we hope the flyer will convince you!
Twee Amsterdamse platenlabels ontmoeten elkaar op vrijdag 17 mei in de Melkweg. Het bekende undergroundcollectief en online label Redevice nodigt Amsterdams meest gerenommeerde platenlabel Rush Hour uit voor een nacht die vooral in het teken staat van de roots van de Chicago house. Maar liefst twee acts uit de begindagen van deze sound – Virgo Four en Elbee Bad – maken hun opwachting in een line-up die verder wordt aangevuld door Rush Hour dj van het eerste uur Antal en Redevice residents Frodo & Pep. Tickets zijn per vandaag in de voorverkoop.

Zowel Virgo Four als Elbee Bad stonden ooit aan de bakermat van de immens populaire Chicago house sound. Een sound die, mede door een fiks aantal re-releases van het Amsterdamse Rush Hour label, de afgelopen jaren een ware comeback heeft gemaakt. Virgo Four bracht in de jaren ’80 al platen uit op het wereldberoemde Trax Records. Dat deze releases de toets der tijd hebben doorstaan blijkt alleen al uit het aantal opnieuw uitgebrachte platen op Rush Hour, het label waar het Amerikaanse duo ook hun nieuwere materiaal op uitbrengt. Hetzelfde geldt “The Prince Of Dance Music” Elbee Bad, die tegenwoordig in Duitsland woont en een paar jaar geleden zelfs een dikke EP maakte met Rotterdammer Gerd.

En wie kan het publiek nou beter opwarmen voor deze twee houseveteranen dan Rush Hour man van het eerste uur Antal? Al sinds jaar en dag draagt hij de sounds uit waar het label voor staat met dikke sets vol house, disco en uitstapjes waar niemand het bestaan van afwist. Frodo & Pep, het neusje van de Redevice zalm, maken met hun groovy en eigenwijze beats de line-up compleet.

Redevice invites… Eli Verveine & Friends 26-01-13

The new year starts off well with a lovely Redevice treat: Eli Verveine from Switzerland. Eli is quite hot at the moment: a couple of weeks ago she rocked the infamous Panoramabar in Berlin and also gathered international acclaim with her exceptional Resident Advisor podcast. Her own label Tardis is widely respected as a high quality dub-techno imprint, so it comes as no surprise that like us, everybody seems to loves Ms. Verveine…

No time like the present for Redevice to invite her back to Amsterdam; her sound is our sound, dark yet warm, dubby, and above all…provocative!

This is an evening you can’t afford to miss, so get those dancing shoes oiled up and prepare to shake booty till you drop.

Redevice invites… Nachtschade 18-10-2012

Most of you know that Redevice stands for underground and uncompromising music, but there’s more: during Amsterdam Dance Event Redevice showcases a glimpse in to the future of clubbing. Redevice invites…Nachtschade. Nachtschade is a concept in which electronic music meets audiovisual storytelling; an audiovisual laboratory with the freedom to research and experiment. Exploring boundaries, Nachtschade aims to merge the audio and visual dimension. Nachtschade considers its work a continuing process, rather than an end product. Improvising live on stage, they transform physical movement into sound, combining electro acoustic installations and analogue syntheses. Expect experimental (visual) soundscapes, ambient, (dub) techno and a rocking dance floor.

The incredible thing about this impressive project is not only the endresult you’ll be seeing, but also the way in which video, light, sound and physical objects are in-synch with each-other without restricting the intuition of the musicians. Not only will you be able to hear the music the performers make, but you’ll also see your surroundings change with it, creating a mindblowing experience for the senses. Nachtschade consists of visuals and light by artist Manuel Rodrigues in collaboration with musicians Robin Kampschoer and Jilt van Moorst. Because this is the maiden voyage of the concept they additionally invited special guest Tiago Frois, a Portugese artist who is a master in audiovisual sculpturing. And finally, to bring things well into the night, DJ support will come from Frodo, Pep and Frank Haag. Don’t miss out!

Redevice proudly presents the first Redevice mix session. We kick off with one of our most esteemed regulars: Pep. As a resident on the ‘Redevice invites…’ events he’s well known for his deep, dubby and perverse sound — you can clearly hear the echo of his love for polyrhythmic afro-beat music. Pep never takes the easy route, it’s always a little bit strange…and that’s wat we love about him. This set is recorded live during Berlin Underground @ Melkweg, Amsterdam. Warming up the crowd, as he’s warming you up for many sets to come. Have fun with this one. Cheers.
