Praxis 54 – Noirodyn: Construct Deconstruct CD in stock now!

A full length CD album by Noirodyn, aka Vile Enginez.

OUT NOVEMBER 2nd – pre-orders taken now and shipped Oct. 27/28!

special pre-order price until Oct. 31st – EUR 10.00, afterwards EUR 13.00

Fernando Narvàez Perez has so far mainly made his mark under his Vile Enginez monicker with a debut on Zhark International from 2004 and several releases on the Praxis sublabel Sub/Version, both on vinyl and digital. The project mutated into Noirodyn with a first digital-only release for Praxis in 2013 titled Infradesigns. Immediately it was evident that Fernando was applying his production skills to a more varied sound but regularly returning to slamming beats and far-out noise constructions making Noirodyn the logical continuation and development of Vile Enginez.

Construct Deconstruct contains 16 new tracks ranging from slower grooves to hectic intensifications arranged into a continuous mix, showing his creative energies at a peak.

Feedback from “The End is Nigh”: The End Is The Beginning…

Huge thanks to everybody who made THE END IS NIGH at Køpi such a great event! Artists, helpers, audience!

To quote Cinder (Bambule):

“Praxis’ The End Is Nigh party in Berlin last weekend was spectacular.A truly great night ultimately sealed by a brilliant PROLE SECTOR set featuring top tunes by Mumdance, Logos, Pinch & Rabit.Everybody was in shining form though, so massive respect to Christoph, Linzee Lynx, Fabrizio (Fire At Work), Dan Hekate, Alexis (Kovert) & Mario (Zombieflesheater.) The visuals by Sansculotte were as wonderful as ever.Massive thanks to loads of other people i met, and for their incredible warmth & creativity, it was my best visit to Berlin by far… many thanks : Sandra & Uli – very special people, loved our conversations, even or especially our disagreements.i’m looking forward to the fruits of our collaboration ; to Jan (building the soundsystem as we ate ice cream at the Praxis shop, deeply impressive) ; Suzanne (what a trooper, worked like a demon, big respect) ; Luke Hekate took me a bit by surprise, had only met Luke a few times at parties but hanging with him here was super good, looking forward to further adventures ; Saskia (for allowing me to stay in her flat AND for giving up her time to help the refugees in Berlin) ; Franzi (you really should make the move to Berlin, you can only grow from it) ; Paula (want to hear you play next time) ; Cedrik, it was so nice to meet up twice, always a pleasure ; the Billy Bibitts, so chuffed you came but wine next time though, eh ; and last but not least Polly & Felix, happy we got to hang out on the last night.hope you had a safe flight home… All in all it was a fantastic week in Berlin and an absolute honour to play for Praxis at Köpi… cheers Christoph much love.”


and Prole Sector was inspired enough to start a new blog:

“Ten years ago I hung up my headphones, sold my decks, sold all my vinyl and headed off into the sunset. That was then, but this is now and definitely no need to wax lyrical about the past here.

Last weekend I played out (properly) for the first time since, in Berlin @ The End is Nighparty at der Kopi; great soundsystem, proper low end, no stars, proper locked-in, open-minded crowd, dancing. Positive vibrations and a lot to find inspiration from; not least from how the tunes I played out sounded (I’d only ever listened to most of them on my headphones before so….huge pleasure, sonic surprises). Where the cruddy distortion and soulless speed of Breakcore killed it for me the science of quaking bass technique, slower tempo and – SPACE – has surely taken over.

I’ll be posting info and comments on tunes (and also other mediums) I’m feeling here from now on. There’s a lot of quality hybrid productions coming out that have regalvanised my enthusiasm for dark underground club music. Especially in the slower 128-140bpm fields and beyond the dubstep/brostep formulas too. If that’s your bag then drop by occasionally, leave a comment or reply and share some of your own thoughts.”

ZGK / S 38
Scharnweberstrasse 38, 10245 Berlin

This is a Soli Party which means a fundraiser for various print projects connected to Datacide, the magazine for noise and politics, which has been exploring the overlaps and frictions of radical (anti-)politics and electronic music since 1997.
With our fundraisers we have always followed the course that we aimed at finding a happy balance between providing exclusive, exciting and in many cases incredible international and local acts, covering at least their travel and other expenses as well as providing a fat sound, and the aim of funding our radical media projects.
The next projects will be:
- DATACIDE FIFTEEN. The next regular issue of the magazine will be out in October 2015. Articles and contributions are being assembled now and we’re excited and confident that the upcoming issue will be another killer. Since 2011 we have published Datacide on a yearly schedule. At the very least we intend to continue this, but we have more in store: Books, a German edition, and we would like to increase the frequency of publication.
- BERLINER KRISE. We are currently preparing a – kind of – German edition of Datacide. We have been based in Berlin since issue number 10 of Datacide came out. We’ve been very active, organising numerous parties, events and a couple of successful conferences, but we feel that the „missing link“ is a German language publication. BERLINER KRISE will be a 12-page A3-size newspaper which will feature translations from previous issues of Datacide, German language „versions“ of articles as well as exclusive content.
- Datacide Book: EVERYTHING ELSE IS EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS. A complete reprint of Datacide issues 1-10 in one massive volume with new introductions and an index. We decided to do a thorough edit of the original layout and find a balance between correcting mistakes and improving readability one the one hand, retaining the original vibe and look and most importantly the complete content of the original issues.
All these projects are scheduled to appear in the next 2-5 months. For this we need money and support.
TRÜBE AUSSICHTEN FÜR DIE BOURGEOISIE at ZGK is our next party. If you are in Berlin, come and join us. If you’re not able to attend, but you want to support our projects, please consider a donation or take out a subscription to the magazine. Paypal address: datacide@c8.com, subscriptions cost EUR 12.00 – or more at your discretion – for 3 issues incl. shipping to anywhere in the world. More information can be obtained by writing to the same email address.
