So feel free to read a little, take a break, read a little more, take another break...and so on. You will be a braver soul than me if you're able to digest this in one sitting! Let's get to it... LAST WEEK'S SPECIAL COVERS SHOW The special covers show, broadcasted last Friday, is now available online for listening. It's been a bit of an education for me in some cases to dig up the original artists on some of the tunes, finding interesting historical facts along the way. I have to give thanks to respondents from the Acid Jazz mailing list on the Internet (http://www.cmd.uu.se/AcidJazz/) for their assistance both with jarring my memory and supplying useful information. Give the show a listen, and let me know what you think. The link is below in the "Last Week's Playlist" section.

Patience, my friends. ---- VELANCHE'S EUROPEAN TRIP PART 2: VIENNA & BUDAPEST VIENNA (December 30, 2002-January 6, 2003) It's away from the rain of England and onward to the snow of Vienna--by way of Graz. I was excited about the real adventure soon to come...the first real start of my journey through the musical landscapes of Europe. It's something that I've wanted to do for a very long time, and by now things were becoming all the more real. My flight lands at Graz Airport, formally known as Flughafen Graz. After clearing customs, I was greeted by Alan Brown, aka Cukipapa, and two of his friends; Adni, an architectural student from Boston on holiday, and the lovely but mysterious woman friend of theirs known as Nina from Sarevejo. After our greetings, the group was acquainting me with a little tour of the city. This year is apparently a significant one for the city of Graz. At the time, there was quite a bit of renovation and construction throughout the city. Graz has been chosen as the Cultural Capital of Europe for 2003. The city has been pouring quite a bit of money into sprucing up the area to prepare for the many visitors expecting to partake in the cultural events throughout the year. After the city tour and hanging out at a quaint cafe for awhile, we've left Graz behind. We've all packed into Adni's car to take the two-hour drive to Vienna. In spite of my best efforts to keep awake, the lack of sleep since my arrival to Europe was getting to me. We've chatted with one another for awhile, but then poor Adni had to put up with us sleepyheads soundly resting away. We eventually made it to Vienna, making our way from one spectacular-looking city to another. Just like Graz, the town was recovering snowfalls that happened days before. We bid the duo of Adni and Nina goodbye for the moment, then Alan escorted me to his flat. I'm not sure how long the building that he lives in has been around, but forget elevators...these were stairs going about five stories high. Makes for good exercise, I'd say. Soon, I was greeted by Alan's flatmates, Amanda and Pollard...both Colorado expatriates. Samantha moved to Vienna to pursue art, and was schooled by some of the old-school veteran artists in an "artist boot camp" sort of atmosphere. Nowadays, she's doing quite well for herself. Pollard is also attempting to let his musical talents guide him on a path to the future. The first taste of club madness I was treated to on the evening of my arrival was a long-standing Monday-night club event known as the Dub Club. If you're ever in the mood to go dancing on a Monday, then you might do well to check it out. I sure did, and I was very impressed. The Dub Club is held in a popular nightclub called The Flex. It's literally an underground club that's kind of like walking into a very wide storm drain. There's grafitti and the appearance of decay on the outside. Once inside, though, you'll need to pass a full bar on one side and some packed seating on the other to get to the main dance area. In our case, in at about 1:30am and out at around 5am...insane even for me! New Year's Eve was quite an experience in of itself. The night Alan and I were moseying about through one of Vienna's main shopping areas, the streets were filled with people celebrating the end of 2002, braving the cold weather. If you weren't bundled up, you were going to suffer. But it seems that the ones with the most suffering were the unfortunate souls getting scared out of their wits by kids & teens throwing tiny pyro gizmos next to their shoes. Yes, they are firecrackers and yes, a loud POP is how it was. Later in the evening, Alan had to focus on getting a New Year's Eve gig in gear. I've accompanied Adni & Nina from his gig to The Flex. The night's event was the G-Stone New Year's Eve Party. The main stage was cordoned off by a glass partition, which ended up creating two separate party areas. I eventually lost Adni in the crowd, which shouldn't have been since he's a rather tall guy. I should have stuck with him because I saw him later from a distance inside the secured area. I know that both Kruder & Dorfmeister were there, as well as a G-Stone resident known as Flo who was spinning a nice set. There were supposedly other G-Stone folks in DJ rotation at the gig...certainly some lucky friends and acquaintances having their own festive celebration on the stage, facing the rest of us on the floor. At midnight on New Year's Eve, a remarkable thing happens in Vienna. Chances are very good that you'll hear Johann Strauss's "Blue Danube Waltz" coming from boomboxes on the streets or, in the case of The Flex, from its sound system. And when you hear it, you will find people waltzing...yes, that's right, waltzing! And so it was that those who knew of the tradition at the G-Stone party did the do, both in the pit and on the stage. Add the multimedia spectacle for good measure, and it looked mighty unreal. After the 10-minute festivities, it was back to the dancing, the music, the vibes. I was there at 10:30pm, and left with Alan (who arrived at The Flex sometime after 3am) sometime after 5:30am...with the party still in full effect! Another great highlight of my trip that kept me out all night again was an established weekly event known as Soul Sugar. Nothing but rare grooves, raw soul, and funky vibes all night long. These were heavy-hitting rare funk and soul grooves that kept me dancing for five hours straight at the DJ booth, looking onwards to at least 600 people dancing madly (with the line stretching for about 150 meters out the door). These were mostly twentysomethings dancing to the stuff. Was I impressed? Indeed! There are many other things I'd like to tell you about Vienna, and of my week there. Between Alan and me, we've taken quite a few pictures during my stay. I'll share many of them online soon so you can have a look. Through both quiet times and active times, Vienna is just full of life. I can tell you that there's a lot of good memories from my Euro getaway were there. I'd like my next visit to be during the summer, but Vienna is definitely worth repeat visits anytime of the year.

Alan and I had only about 20 minutes to ready ourselves and leave his flat in order to make it to the train station. After taking one of the tube to of the main station, we've purchased our tickets and then boarded the train soon afterwards. Unfortunately, we weren't free to take just any seat as we have hoped. With just a few hours' sleep from the night before (we were hanging in a local pub with Amanda and the crew), we were both hoping to make good use of one of the empty sleep compartments. Most of them at the time were empty. It seemed like a good idea at the time. But that was not to be. One of the conductors beckoning us wasn't in an agreeable mood. Alan tried his best to negotiate staying put in our would-be sleeping compartment, but the conductor wouldn't budge. We've had to move elsewhere. Wie've ended up walking our pooped-out bodies, searching for coach seats. After finding a fairly roomy coach area, we've shared our compartment with a couple. Between small talk, reading the newspaper, fiddling with my minidisc recorder, and sleeping, we were on our way to Budapest. We've made several stops along the way, showing our passports to various customs folks about three times while enroute. A bit over three hours later, the train arrived at its final destination-the main Budapest train station. While Alan has visited Budapest many times, I was a bit in awe with the realization that I'm in yet another country. In the back of my head, my thinking was that this was as close to the former Soviet republic as I've ever been. No, there were no secret police coming up to us to ask for I. D. or spying on us…at least none that I knew of! On the way out of the station, we've made our way to the station's front entrance. We've each taken a few pictures with our digital cameras, soon to add them to our growing collection of pictoral memories. Quite a few cabs were in waiting, jockeying for position in hopes of huddling passengers to their vehicles. I was reminded by Alan that they were all struggling blue collar workers, working just to make ends meet in hopes of supporting their loved ones. Tibi, one half of the Hungarian duo known as the Crate Soul Brothers, greeted us. Other than receiving their newsletters, I didn't know much about them at the time. I've eventually learned that they also have composed music, as well as constructing some awesome remixes that I've heard later on. He and Gabor, who we were to meet at another location not far from the station, are also the keepers of our special music scene, representing Budapest and doing their best to keep the scene alive. Alan had urged me to meet them and get a little taste of Budapest, so those were the main purposes for our visit. Tibi greeted us in a warm and friendly manner, welcoming me to Budapest and saying hello to an old friend once again. None of us had any firm itinerary in place, but we were going to make the best of this day. It was chilly weather, but the sun also joined us for this day to make the area even more scenic. After taking a little bit of a walk and soaking up the sights of ancient buildings and curious onlookers (as well as a bit of people-watching on my part), we would take the trolley to meet up with Gabor. After hooking up with Gabor, we've headed to a favorite café of theirs to hang for awhile and sample some food. I've learned that Gabor has been quite busy completing his masters degree program, and hasn't had as much time to devote to his Crate duties of late. In addition, he has been very busy using his position as a board member of the non-commercial radio station, Telios, to return it to the air. As of now, it should return to the airwaves very soon. For the next six hours we were all together, with all of us travelling around in Gabor's compact car. I will tell you right now that should you visit Vienna, you really are encouraged to at least take a day trip to Budapest. A little trivia is in order: Budapest was once two separate cities. "Buda" is the area of the city that's situated on a higher elevation (read: hills), while "Pest" is the lower elevation that's at or near sea level. From the higher elevation, Budapest looks absolutely spectacular. When the pictures are posted online, you'll get to see some of the ancient beauty of the area. The buildings, and the area, has had a long history that has preceded the states, and to me that's a nifty thing. Between sightseeing, we've had a Hungarian dinner at a restaurant (delicious, I must say), then went to a café for Alan to meet up with a business associate while Tibi and I spoken for awhile. Gabor was with us, but he soon had to leave us behind for a previous engagement. Not long afterwards, Alan and I had to return to the train station to return to Vienna. Tibi tagged along with us as we've made our way back via the trolley, leading us to the station. Once there, Alan and I said our goodbyes to him. The Crate Soul boys are very down-to-earth guys, and I look forward to meeting them again in the future. About four hours later, Alan and I were back in Vienna.

Fresh off their debut album "In Between" from last year, the collective digs into the label's catalogue of releases for an eclectic musical collection. There's a mixture of tunes such as "Brother" from Victor Davies and Yukihiro Fukutomi's "I Am," as well as remixes of favorites such as Rima's soulfully broken mix of Koop's "Bright Nights." Also seek the dope Playlist EP on vinyl with three cuts not on the compilation, including new Rima from its forthcoming album and The Underwolves getting a strong dancefloor mix from Integra of "In The Picture." Various Artists-The United Nations of Future Music Vol. 1 (Om) Kaskade-It's You, It's Me (Om) San Francisco's Om Records has been getting rather busy lately. After dropping the final volume in its "Om Lounge" series, the label kicks off a new series with its new mantra, letting folks know that it's the "United Nations of Future Music." Volume 1 features music from many artists on the Om roster. Some notable cuts here includes Ski Oakenful remixing King Kooba's "If I Could" (checked out their album "Indian Summer" on the label…nice one from last year), and new music from King Britt's Scuba moniker called "Bare Naked." Meanwhile, house music veteran Kaskade drops his debut album "It's You, It's Me." This is one that's more for the deep house heads with a soulful vibe and a variety of competent vocals. Have a listen for yourself and choose. Jazzinho--Constelacao: Quant Remix (Ecco Chamber CD-R/Austria) One of Gonkyhurg's main players, Joanas Quant, takes a different take on this tune from Jazzinho, giving it groove-injected Latin flavor that's spicy and delicious. Look for this one to drop soon from Ecco Chamber, whose quality releases have been putting vinyl into more DJs' record bags. I like, I like, I like! Anorganik featuring Sena--Endlessly (Atlas CD-R/Hungary) At around 150 bpm, this is one stormer of a tune. It has all the makings of a great dancefloor filler….catchy grooves, mean synth-bassline, sexy lyrics, and some arresting vocals from Sena. To say that this tune is super-dope is an understatement, in my opinion…this needs a release and wide at that. It has terrific potential to become absolutely massive. Hungarian artist Gabor Deutsch, aka Anorganik, is definitely one to watch (with fellow countryman Carmel taking the reins, for now). Various Artists-DJ Smash Presents Phonography 2 (Blue Note) DJ Smash has given us a gift with the well-received "Phonography" compilation back in 2001. He's back with a new volume of phonographic delights from the Blue Note archives, and even picking out some goods from the much-respected European Blue Notes vault. 16 very cool tracks fills up this volume. Representing are artists such as Marc Moulin, St. Germain, and Charlie Hunter. We also get nice remixes from DJ Spooky, Joe Claussell, Koop, and DJ Smash himself…among others. Now you don't really want to be left standing without this one do you? I didn't think so! Jori Hulkkonen-Different (F Communications/PIAS America) Lately, the Scandinavian region of Europe has been receiving quite a bit of notice in the underground music scene. We have countries such as Sweden, Norway, and Denmark representing oh-so-finely. And then there's Finland. While we tend to focus on artists such as the talented collective Nuspirit Helsinki, we tend to forget those artists that have been around the block for some time. And so it is that Finnish artist Jori Hulkonnen gets another due. Fresh from his long player "When No One Is Watching, We Are Invisible," Hulkonnen comes back with his new release for the French label F Communications called "Invisible." He surely puts the "deep" in deep house, also moving it at times in a downbeat direction with lush soundscapes. Several vocalists take turns on this one, but for me it's the non vocal tracks that I'm feeling. Look out for some nice goodness such as the epic track "Latin Taiga." You be the judge. P'Taah-Staring At The Sun (Ubiquity) Yikes…Chris Brann (he of the Wamdue Project and the Ananda Project) comes back most correct with this worthy follow-up to his excellent "Compressed Light" debut for Ubiquity. Putting on his P'Taah guise once again, the Atlanta-based artist gives us a most wonderful gift in "Staring At The Sun." The album is a mixture of jazz-laden delights like the title track, as well as deep groovers such as "Nobody Knows." With a variety of influences such as Latin, worldbeat, and other influences, Brann weaves the variety of music to create a very satisfying album--both for the dancefloor and for the mind. This has inched up among my top-10 albums of 2003 so far. Check it for yourself, and prepare to lose yourself with this one. Phil Parnell-Runaway 12": Bugge Wesseltoft & Mantis Recordings "Filmix" Remixes (Mantis white/UK) From Mantis Recordings in the UK comes the first single from Phil Parnell's dope debut "Do Your Living In the.Night" The tune "Runaway," featuring some cut-up vocal work from Liz Fletcher (the vocalist for Los Ladrones), gets the remix treatment. In addition to the original, we get a spacey funked-out vibe from Norwegian wunderkind Bugge Wesseltoft (an accomplished pianists in his own rights, as is Parnell). He puts his own touches on "Runaway," building things up into a satisfying climax…then a gentle conclusion. Then proving that sometimes two heads are better than one, Mr. Iveson and Mr. Mantis get together for a "Filmix" remix that could definitely do it for the dancefloor. It's pretty damn infectious, having me do replays for awhile the first time I've heard it. Check it soon, and run away with it! De Vibroluxe-Chicken Chop Suey EP 12" (Couch/Austria) Dhizan & Kamien's Couch label out of Vienna puts forth a new EP from an outfit known as De Vibroluxe. Three catchy tunes are on this 12", plus a remix. If you know of Dhizan & Kamien, then know that you'll get some quirky jazzy dancey vibes fwith these tunes. Groovilicious. Quantic-Off The Beaten Track: Carmel Remix (Tru Thoughts CD-R/UK) I've been feeling this one since first hearing it while in Europe. Hell, even Will Quantic was very down with this one, calling it "brillaint." The Hungarian artist Carmel, surely knows the language of music. If you've picked up his 12" of "Nujazzkiller" on Zero dB's Fluid Ounce label, or listened to him as Marcel (clever anagram, isn't it??) on the most recent Earth volume for LTJ Bukem's Good Looking label, then you know how very talented this man is. And can he do a remix! Taken from Quantic's "Apricot Morning" album that was released last year, "Off The Beaten Track" gets a bass-heavy dub that's just absolutely insane. Thankfully, Tru Thoughts knows better and will soon release this gem as a 12". So get this one when it's fresh out of the oven. Many of us are waiting anxiously for more, as Carmel should drop his debut long player for Fluid Ounce later this year. He's already shown to be no fluke in the least. Gotan Project-Santa Maria/Triptico 12": Todd Middleton & Peter Kruder Remixes (Ya Basta!/XL) This is a keeper. Many of you know of the excellent "La Revancha del Tango" album from the French trio known as the Gotan Project from 2001. The album will get a domestic release here stateside in early April, and just in time for this are two dope remixes. Mr. Kruder drops his take of Triptico in semi-house mode, but my favorite mix is Todd Middelton's take on "Santa Maria"...sexygroovelicious with deep house sensibilities that had me doing replays. Nice 12"...out now. ---- VELANCHE'S SOUNDSCAPES FOR MARCH 2003 (In no particular order) 1. Gotan Project--Santa Maria/Triptico 12": Tom Middelton & Peter Kruder Remixes) (XL) 2.
