DON’T SLEEP: Vlek x Hermutt Lobby “BEATSURFING #5: Herrmutt Lobby’s Turing Funck On Ableton Live” [BEAT VIDEO]

Since Bandcamp wants to go down like WiFi in economically challenged regions of America I’ll post this new demo/beat video of Vlek Data x Hermutt Lobby’s Beatsurfing app for iPad. In this installment Herrmutt Lobby played Turing Funck with an unquantized scene, and then the same with a Quantize patch made by NONAGON for Maxforlive. You can listen to the track, download the Ableton Project and the .bs file here: beatsurfing.net/extend and the Quantize patch here: http://www.maxforlive.com/library/device/196/real-time-midi-quantize

DON’T SLEEP: Sagat “Few Mysteries Solved In A Year Of Contact” [BEAT TAPE]

Vlek Records newest release is from Sagat and is called “Few Mysteries Solved In A Year Of Contact”. It’s minimalist and glitchy and synthy. I dig it. Don’t sleep on it…

DON’T SLEEP: Vlek x Herrmutt Lobby “BEATSURFING #3: Granular Synthesis” [BEAT VIDEO/PRODUCT DEMO]

Vlek presents a new iPad MIDI Instrument builder for the iPad developed by Hermutt Lobby called Beatsurfing (video shows Lobby using an iPad 2 to operate Beatsurfing). You can build an instrument and play it, like a partition, in a 1000 different ways. This video features 4 “operators”: the Line, the Circle, the Polygon and the Fader. Each of these operators allows you to build your own MIDI instruments from the ground up as if you were drawing them on the screen. The distribution of the objects and the trajectory of your fingers then help to reintroduce variety and a human feeling to your performance. You can watch these three collected “Beatsurfing” demo videos and if you’re interested in possibly trying out the new Vlek iPad app Beatsurfing it officially hits the Apple Store soon in June 2012. Don’t sleep!

DON’T SLEEP: WANDA GROUP “CLEANERS” [BEAT TAPE]

Vlek Records’ most recent release is WANDA GROUP’s new beat tape “CLEANERS”. Since we’ve decided to delve into the glitchy, ambient, sloppy drum, off kilter beat tape segment of the day this is a perfect follow up to Madegg. You might want to skip this one if you’re just looking for some head nod shit though…
