Keyboardjamming chiptunes in the sun…

We Finally kickstarted the Marseille micro:HQ and Microdisko Marseille after being dead since december. Put up a page page and everything. Planning the next concert for end of Mars. Micromeetings in the sun @ Fort St Jean drinking beer making gameboy tewns is what the chipbiz is all about. Props to Confipop, Papet-J, Cybernostra, Acet1 and the rest of the microHQ Marseille crew.

Just logged onto Last.FM and found “100,019 plays scrobbled on Last.fm” – WOW, thanks! I belive I had a simular expression on my face as I have on this picture of me and goto80 when jamming some atari vs c64 at La Gare.
If this aint datalöve I dont know what is 🙂

Olympique Marseille:Vannes 5-0  

Dubmood goes ringtone, goes RSS, goes Miami!

Yepp I was bored and thought I outta make some of my tunes that I never released into ringtones, some of them were fitting really well and some of them just had it comming. Then I found this really smooth SMS-Service to deliver them. They are all avalible for free download. But if you think that I deserve a few coins for whatever reason (to pay my rent for example), you can also buy them and get them WAPed to your cellie for only 10SEK. If anyone knows a service that can deliver to other countries as well please let me know so I can start delivering ringtones worldwide! Dubby in your phone stealin your whatever.

I Implemented some new features on the site, like the ability to see when my next Marshacks emission on Beradio is broadcasted and whats up on newssites or friends blogs etc. I thought it looks cool too. And I moved this never updated blog to wordpress so you can start commenting my Ramblings, and so that I can get my lazy ass to update it more often since I dont need to hustle with the html. Hope ya like it (like ya outa like gordon strombola).

I also just got to learn that im going together with the BeRadio team to Miami in March. Congratulations Miami! ^^
Now let me know what you thought of the ringtones. Sellasie!

Zurich > Wintertur > Elektroplankton > Marseille

Posted in Ramblings on February 23, 2007 by dubmood

Back in marseille, had to sleep 14 hours to catch up to what I lost during the suisse minitour. At Friday, I got it demonstrated to me that the zurich squatscene might be the best one ive experienced so far. Spent the friday night in a 6 floor building, that was kept in a good shape, eight or so dancefloors and even more bars =), good music, good gear, and no dirty dreadcrustwhateverinfested people that you usually meet at such a place. Should definitly be the place for the next Micromusic festival.
Anyway, we left zurich for a small gig in wintertur on saturday, in a sort of always open semi legit bar run by a punkband of some sort. Excellent people anyway and most of the audience represented what I understood is typical for wintertur. Anarchists =)
And this is were I encounterd the elektroplankton fenomena. A girl named Petra with a gameboy DS who couldnt stop smiling, drugs? nah! Elektroplankton! Awesome Gameboy DS game/music sequenser that made me sit up till 8 or so in the morning just playing. Why didnt the gameboy nerds on scene.se tell me about this shit since its obviously quite old? ._. Time to let the Marseille sun wake me up and get working.

OM – Lyon 2 – 1
OM – Paris SG 1 – 1
OM – FC Nantes 0 – 0

2 points from Champions League and Uefa. Allez L’OM!

Second day of the minitour in .ch

Awesome gig yestarday at the helsinki club. People could not just stop smiling afterwards. Now im at the 14th floor of some appartmentbuilding where the clubs apartment we use for the weekend is situated, can see the lake from here. Zurich reminds me abit of DDR though dunno why. Check out boltes blog if you want some crappy cellphonepictures. Wintertur next!

Volvo, IAM and Datacowboys

Posted in Ramblings on February 22, 2007 by dubmood

Crazy weekend at the Datasaloon (somewhere in the colorado of provance). Goto80, Sidabitball, Computertruck etc showed the countryside how to rock them chiptewns and bend doose circuts. Hard to imagine that even though the event took place in the middle of nowhere more than 200 people showed up. We did some workshops and jamming too. Started on a vodka dance 5 on sidabitballs gameboy and some crazy ska-shit with goto80.
Me doin the riddim on the atari and he jamming away melodies with his c64. Guess it will end up with some kind of result, maybe an EP or a 7″, who knows. Next weekend im heading of to Zurich and Winterfur for gigs together with Cybernostra and my MC, Boltes (Swingkids). Beware. oh and check out my atarijihad remix on the latest goto80 release here.
Anyway…
Since we never get bored with joking about Volvos here at Cybernostra, I have to mention a recent highlight of the Volvo rolling fortress cars.
Today Imhotep (IAM)  told me story of when IAM released their second album and Imhotep launched his label. They were sitting in the hotel in paris waiting for the records to arrive. Some friends to Imhotep had borrow his Volvo (blue 240 combi, belive dat!) to drive them all the way from Marseille.
After a while he recive a phonecall, they had been in a serious caraccident with a big truck, and what would have smashed a french peugot/renault/citroen to atoms did only slice the volvo in two. Thanks to a Volvo240, all the cars passengers, and ofcource all the records were saved. You cant touch a volvo. =) See you in Zurich? ^^
