Not Your Monkey Not Your Robot is terug!

Na een lange radiostilte is hét breakcore feestje van Arnhem terug! Op zaterdag 20 mei vindt er namelijk weer een editie van Not Your Monkey Not Your Robot plaats bij de Willemeen!


Not Your Monkey Not Your Robot is het bekende breakcore feest dat in 2005 in het leven werd geroepen door Jorrit (Goudvishal), Jeroen (DJ King Pin) en Bart (DJ Bart Hard). Voor wie zich afvraagt wat breakcore ook alweer was: een eclectische combinatie van hardcore breakbeats, ritmische industrial, sterke roots in de punk en onconventioneel gebruik van allerlei denkbare sounds. Van koude apocalyptische drones tot warme raggajungle en experimentele sounds die je op het verkeerde been zetten. Binnen het genre breakcore komen de meest uiteenlopende subculturen en muziekgenres bij elkaar en dat was ook altijd goed te zien op de feestjes van NYMNYR. Gabbers, skaters, krakers, hardrockers, punkers en gothics braken samen de tent af.

Dat is waar het Not Your Monkey Not Your Robot concept altijd om bekend bleef staan. Al snel begon het concept zich uit te breiden met uitstapjes naar locaties in o.a. Wageningen, waar het later samen met TK07 een podium kreeg op het Bevrijdingsdagfestival. Ook werden er busreizen naar België en Q-Base georganiseerd waardoor een grote groep muziekliefhebbers vanuit Arnhem mee konden reizen naar dergelijke feesten.

In 2015 gaf TK07 hun afscheidsfeest en veel mensen dachten dat dit ook het einde was van Not Your Monkey Not Your Robot, maar niets is minder waar! Jorrit, Jeroen en Bart zijn weliswaar oud, bejaard en lui geworden, maar ze gaan gewoon door met een nieuwe editie op de plek waar het ooit allemaal begon.

Op zaterdag 20 mei gaat het er dus weer als vanouds aan toe in de Willemeen met aantal oude bekenden in de line-up. Enduser (US), Shitmat (UK) en Bong-ra, ook wel bekend als de Monsters of Mashup, komen de boel op hun kop zetten. King Pin en Bart Hard zullen het geheel omlijsten.

Over volgende edities kan de organisatie nog niet veel loslaten, behalve dat ze dit najaar met een afschuwelijk dikke klapper op de proppen zullen komen!

contagious orgasm & dirk geiger. fallen empires. cd. ant-zen act285
since 1987, japan’s contagious orgasm has been active in many intersecting and diverse areas of experimental electronic music, including noise, industrial, rhythmic noise, and ambient. an important and prominent aspect of this project’s work are the numerous collaborations with artists from all over the world like bad sector, atrax morgue, kotodama and brume. for this recent release, c.o. is working together with the german based electronic musician dirk geiger. dirk was born in 1975, and has been involved with music since his youth. in 2002, he formed the music label raumklang music, releasing works from artists like hotaru bay, klangstabil, tapage, pandoras black book and his own debut album ‘dondukov 15’. for the past few years he has been working on a self titled solo project in which he mainly produces music that could fall into the genres of idm, glitch, and ambient. on ‘fallen empires’, the two collaborators generate a cinematic masterpiece of ritualistic ambience. captivating atmospheric synth pads, well-placed field recordings and samples, melodic sequences and dub-like use of echo effects carried on a diverse collection of beats, adding up to make impressive soundscapes of beauty and menace. this album is finished with a dark electro industrial remix by philipp münch, strongly reminiscent of cabaret voltaire and a melancholic orchestrated version of the track ‘resistance’ by p·a·l. ‘fallen empires’ describes the downfall of man-made empires. the end of the beginning. the hopelessness of contemporary civilization. their fear and their anger. captivity in a society whose values are no longer your own. the fight against it, to preserve freedom. and the focus on what nobody can ever take away…. your inner freedom.

hypnoskull. electronic music means war to us 2. cd. ant-zen act294
more than a decade after ‘electronic music means war to us’ patrick stevens showcases his updated aural statement, ready to burglarize listeners’ minds and bodies with a heavy load of uncompromising sound barrages. this album has its focus on classic rhythmic industrial: repetitive hard-hitting power rhythms layered with violent noisy clashes, corroded synth textures and incidental voice samples. six collaborations with artists from all over the world like needle sharing, dissecting table and cyboresis add to the stylistic variety from heavy overdrive hardcore, grind/death metal vocals, power noise and ambient to the beat driven hypnoskull tracks. an aggressive, confrontational album with a high amount of club playability that perfectly brings out the essence of rhythm based electronics.

“The year 3012.
Mankind is on the eve of Apocalypse.

An alien with a sinister plan.
A man-eating oracle.
A deadly game.
To the rescue comes the Traveller.
Big, Bold, Butt-naked…
His journey to ‘the Core’ starts here.”

“the fallen Angel, the sweet virgin,

the black heart,
the tiger of Sodom with her 1000 eyes,

the knives,
the true God, the pure evil,

the lonely man praying
for his damned soul, the poison,

the rage, Lucifer,
the stargate, the initiatory ceremony,

the sinners,
Moloch, Mother Mary, the keys,

the Hydra, the wall,
Cerberus, the whore,

the corrupted society,
the hierophant, the death,

He posts links there to interesting music he found that has been put online by producers on their soundcloud/youtubes/webpages, live clips, or links to new artists, etc, so no illegal downloads…
