In particular, the collection of articles and stories show the impact austerity has on people and their lives.
Unadorned by backward-looking historical narratives, these are accounts fizzing with the energy of the moment: a first draft of a tough time for most Mongolians.
Artificial Dance is a new record label from Amsterdam. It is the first ever release from young Dutch DJ/producer Job Sifre, previously best known for his fortnightly Antikunst show on esteemed Amsterdam institution Red Light Radio.
Shindig has established itself as a cutting edge forum and critique of the glories of 60s and 70s music, film and culture.
There's a bit in the CD booklet for this series about 'rework vs remix', and Erol's Scissor Sisters remix is a case in point.
This series sees the Phantasy man showcase his ear for a tune and hand for a killer rework with retrospective series of his best reinterpretations.
Electroclash, nu-disco, post-punk, punk-funk, nu rave, techno, there was a fair bit of techno, and indie cuts all rubbed shoulders, pogoed and made out in the middle of the dancefloor, getting totally fucked up as Erol threw them into the blender.
The twisted, distorted nature of Sifre’s far-sighted approach is given further weight via “A Dime 4ur Decline”, an apocalyptic stroll through skittish machine drums, panicked electronics, modular style bleeps and haunting strings.
Our young hero continues in a similar vein on pulsating dancefloor bubbler “Intex Excursions”, which sounds a little like forgotten heroes of 1980s industrial funk dancing all night with modern Dutch electro maestros.
Sifre’s love of electronic body music can be heard within the bustling, all-action bassline, fizzing electronics, razor-sharp guitar riffs and matter-or-fact vocals of “Worries”.
