Desde Berlín, una de las capitales de la electrónica, el compositor mexicano con formación como ingeniero en audio, lanzó 65 55 41 NE: cinco cortes de sonidos sintetizados y texturas que con frecuencia se superponen. En esa compleja tensión rítmica aún puede encontrarse un eco de la experiencia que tuvo Medina en el jazz. Su carrera inicia con una obra consistente. Ref. [La tempestad No. 106]
Gravenhurst – I Turn my Face To The Forest Floor // From Harbour Boat Trips: 01 Copenhagen by Trentemøller
Gravenhurst was a project by singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Nick Talbot, from Bristol, England, signed to Warp Records.
Talbot began playing solo, but from 1999 Gravenhurst toured extensively as a band. Gravenhurst’s first full-band line up featured Dave Collingwood on drums, who also plays with Azalea City Penis Club, and bassist Paul Nash. Nash soon left to concentrate on his own musical project North Sea Navigator, and was replaced by Huw Cooksley. Later, Robin Allender, and Alex Wilkins joined on bass and guitar respectively.
Talbot initially played all of the instruments on the recordings; Dave Collingwood took on the increasingly complex drum parts on ‘Fires in Distant Buildings’, and again on ‘The Western Lands’ (2007). Collingwood played in the live band from 2000, and left in 2008.
His death was announced on the 4th of December 2014 // Live performance by Nick Talbot (aka Gravenhurst) – May 12, 2003. WFMU radio, Jersey City, NJ.

Françoise Hardy signed her first contract with the record label Vogue in November 1961. In April 1962, shortly after finishing school, her first album, “Oh oh Chéri”, appeared, with the title song written by Johnny Hallyday’s writing duo. The flip side of the record, “Tous les garçons et les filles” became a huge success, which sold 2 million copies. She had long hair and usually wore jeans with a leather jacket, while accompanying her songs on the guitar.
Stereolab are a UK-based band whose style, mixing 1950s-1960s pop and lounge music with the “motorik” beat of krautrock, was one of the first to which the term “post-rock” was applied. They are noted for the use of vintage keyboard instruments like Moog synthesizers and Vox and Farfisa organs. Stereolab is also notable for founding their own record label, Duophonic Records, with a grant from UK charity The Prince’s Trust. The band is often referred to as “The Groop” by their fans (and in the title of their song “The Groop Play Chord X” on the album Space Age Batchelor Pad Music).
They were founded in 1990 by songwriters Tim Gane (guitar, keyboards), formerly of the bandMcCarthy, and Laetitia Sadier (sometimes credited as Seaya Sadier; vocals, keyboards, trombone, guitar), who is from france and sings in both English and French.
Dabrye (an alias of Ann Arbor’s Tadd Mullinix) is best known for creating head-nodding beats with saw-tooth bass lines and a keen eye to forward-thinking production. With support from both the hip-hop underground and the electronic music press, he has earned a place in URB’s Next 100 and XLR8R’s Top 100 albums, among other accolades. Dabrye’s trilogy began with One/Three in
2001, which was followed by the Instrmntl mini-album for Scott Herren’s (Prefuse 73) Eastern Developments label. Both releases earned glowing reviews for their handmade rhythmic style and minimalist execution. 2006’s Two/Three LP steps up the beatmaking ingenuity and spotlights Mullinix’s favorite underground MCs, including Doom, J Dilla, Vast Aire, and Wildchild to create a major statement for the new Hip-Hop sound of Detroit.
