The discipline of D.E.

DE is a way of *doing*.DE simply means doing whatever you do in the *easiest* most relaxed way you can manage which is also the quickest and most efficient way, as you will find as you advance in DE.You can start right now tidying up your flat, moving furniture or books, washing dishes, making tea, sorting papers.Don't fumble, jerk, grab an object. Drop cool possessive fingers onto it like a gentle old cop making a
soft arrest. Guide the dustpan lightly to the floor as if you were landing a plane.Here is student at work.The student considers heavy objects. Tape recorder on the desk taking up too much space and he doesn't use it very often. So put it under
the washstand.You will discover clumsy things you've been doing for years until you think that is just the way things are. Now try again lifting shifting pivoting dropping on the legs just so and right under the washstand.
He is learning the simple miracles...(...)

I was listening to Laurent Garnier's RA podcast and those lyrics really got my attention.. Later I found that these lyrics were used by Minilogue in Doiicie release and I was thrilled. Originally this is a text from a short length movie called "The Discipline of DE" movie by Gus Van Sant and William S. Burroughs.

DE.Do Easy.
Is really D.E. the way to learn the simple miracles?

and the world keeps turning..

some tracks:

Psychonauts - World Keeps Turning (highfish and zander remix -digital only)

I remember listening to their album on gigolo records while still in highschool. I thought it was too dark and too strange for djs. So now when I saw they released some remixes of this track I got really interested. There's an audiofly x remix but I dont feel it at all. Tiefschwarz include it in their june mixmag mix and say that it has something like Depeche mode vibe but to me it's like they had a track ready and added the vocals to make it a remix. Anyway.. how's the best mix digital only?

Ane Brun - Headphone Silence (Henrik Schwarz remix - Dixon edit)

OK. Everyone should have heard this. It's charted everywhere. Great track. Guess that they will play it a lot at It's totally their style.

Nikola Gala - blueberry

Another greek artist with a great release in Plastic City. Actually Nikola Gala has his own label Escada music and has been around for quite a while, so keep an eye on him.

Raudive - Tempo

Good. I would like it more without the tempo sample all the time. It's from Cocoon compilation H. Check it out.

Redshape - Robot

In review sites they would say something "real underground music for those who know". Deep and dark, will work perfectly in the hands of the right dj. (Is it just me or the snare hit is kinda dubstep-esque? -sry for my english-)

Ripperton - Leonors Lanugo

Great. No need for words.


ps:It's been a while since my last post but I have been (really) busy.
