Amphi Festival 2018 – report
Sep 2018 25

It’s getting cold and dark here in Sweden. Sounds like the perfect time to rewind two months back to July and one of our favorite festivals, this year heated up to 35º C. The Release team reports from the 14th edition of the Cologne based festival Amphi, where we met and watched artists such as Midge Ure, And One, Priest, OMD, Oomph!, Aesthetic Perfection, A Projection – and drank gallons of water.

Roskilde Festival 2018 – report
Jul 2018 16

Disappointing main acts but great shows by up-and-coming bands, lovely interviews with bands as Mogwai, jam sessions, sore feet, sauna-hot weather, amazing Roskilde volunteers, and dust, lots of D.U.S.T. – that’s what my 27th Roskilde Festival was about.

The profile has changed over the years. In the nineties you could see Release bands like Front 242, Front Line Assembly, Covenant and Apoptygma Berzerk, but the last ten years have seen a shift in musical direction with more focus on bands and artists appealing to the younger generations. Still, we had Chelsea Wolfe, Massive Attack, Mogwai, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Myrkur, Four Tet and above all Nine Inch Nails. [more...]

Sonar Days – Barcelona – June 14-16 2018 – report
Jul 2018 13

Sonar is probably the most famous electronic music festival in the world, it also is one of the most eclectic – bringing together all kinds of disciplines of music and styles under the umbrella of what is described as “Music, Creativity & Technology”. Sonar by Day tends to follow this ethos more closely than the nightclubby feel of Sonar by Night, and interestingly this year (the 25th anniversary of Sonar) the focus was even more varied than ever. So sit tight as I take you on a world tour of electronic music via Sonar by Day. [more...]

Splice Festival – Rich Mix – London – May 10-13 2018 – live report
May 2018 16

Never heard of the audiovisual, electronic Splice Festival in East London? Well to be honest, until about a year ago, neither had I. But seeing that acts as established as Coldcut, Mira Calix and DJ Food played at the last one, including the legend that is Mixmaster Morris DJ:ing – well, how could I resist once Splice time came around again.
