The Radio Show of today is by David Mayer. In the lower half of cover you see the OP-1 that was unfortunately stolen along with an iPad in a green bag right out of the lobby of the Hotel Maritim in Hamburg during our tour in spring 2013. However, depicted in the upper part of the image is the particular elektron Machinedrum, which the 6 basic groovetracks of the KM020 "A1" originate from. The track basically happened within a few minutes in the living room of our friend and little helper Marcel, literally while the roast beef in the oven was just about to get done. But no one could tell exactly how the loops could be safely stored by means of the tricky menu, so the device was simply left switched on for several days to prevent loss, before the tracks were finally recorded and transferred for further action. The Zip-file that then arrived was named accordingly to the working title: "machinedrum_calypso". In the following Adam charted one of the first versions of the track on RA by simply using that working title. That was when the search for an appropriate name for the track was settled. And at the same time the search for a convenient fourth part of the next Workparty was taken care of too... Thanks for tuning in and have a good weekend.
These days more and more of tose little packs arrive at our office. They contain the parts for the first 20 pieces of the KD7.

It is here: the Workparty Four Picture Vinyl Edition!

On Saturday December 7th &ME and David Mayer are playing at Time Warp Holland in Utrecht. See you Saturday night 23:45 - 01:45 on the Circle floor.
Advent, advent 2013. About time to decorate the flat and start bumping "Jingle Bells"... right? Okay, for now we too prefer to listen to the Axel Boman album or turn up the Volume on the Snoopzilla & Dam-Funk preview. And some Workparty Four Stickers still do for decoration. But you can't help to get in the mood, let's not forget that this time of the year has a deeper meaning to it. Why not clear out the closet, make room for some new stuff and bringing the obsolete clothes to the city mission? And, of course, cultivate your friendships and family bonds with visits and small presents.
If you want to order stuff from our KM Shop and in case that has something to do with Christmas, there is just one thing to remember, and that is the time it takes for shipping:
▶ Germany: Orders paid before Dec 19th will arrive on December 24.
▶ International: Orders paid before Dec 12th will arrive on December 24.
Your KM Crue wishes u a happy advent. Keep Dancing.
