Angst 3D Series (Preview)

Logotype and skateboard design for Berlin based company Angst. Each deck will include a pair of Wayfarer style red/cyan 3D glasses (I bet u haven’t seen any Berlin Mitte hipsters wearing these yet). The skateboards are currently in production, so stop by again to see some real photos of the finished decks.

I also recommend that you check Mirko Mielke’s expose decks: The designs have been projected directly on the skateboards using a sophisticated analog photo-technique that involves spraying a light sensitive emulsion on the deck’s surface and exposing it for 24 hours…

Best Before – A Dsico Fanzine

Manuel Bürger, Tracky Birthday, Konrad Kuhn and I teamed up to create “Best before - A Dsico Fanzine”.

The fanzine is a playful hommage but also a critical examination of Disco culture. It boasts of 52-pages, screenprinted by hand, limited to 250 copies, plus a poster inlay. The title “Best before” indicates that even if the validity of Disco music is long expired, it’s still around. Many people consider it dead - while there’s all kinds of ghosts that prove it’s stayin alive! Who will finally kill it?

To order your copy or download some fresh mixes visit the fanzine’s oldskool website (made by me): http://www.dsico-fanzine.com

Out Of Disorder

What the guys from upitup say about “Out of Disorder”:
“With his second album Roglok releases yet another insane masterpiece. It seems that the kid who designed our website has not only found his own sound (we call it hobby) but also brought it to perfection: gummy acid basslines over punchy dancefloor beats, that ridiculous melody you can’t get out of your head, some gabber and techno. His legendary set at Picknick in Berlin turned the place upside down and made the hipsters lose their aloofness. You just have to dance! Out Of Disorder finally puts an end to waiting for new Roglok stuff after Radetzky March 303 got us hungry last year. Hasi is not the only one who calls it a ‘Brett’ (ace), cause this is the freshest shit you can get anywhere!”

Isocloud 3000 Type

Extra bold and bubbly but at the same time readable and demure, the monospaced Isocloud 3000 type works well for cuddly headlines with a feminine touch or silver piece graffiti bombings.

I have built a custom enclosure for the highlyliquid universal MIDI retrofit. The i/o connections are exported to a DB-25 connector – this allows a variety of keyboards to be used with the box after a DIP switch adjustment. Pictured is my Casio Rapman keyboard, ready to receive triggers.
