Calvin Johnson is touring at the very moment Europe again – this time under the moniker Selector Dub Narcotic.
K released a CD two years ago with the title All You Friend’s Friends – where over 30 Pacific Northwest MC’s produced a Compilation with Samples from the (vast) K Records catalogue.
On his last tour, Calvin Johnson has been showing the All Your Friend’s Friends Documentary, featuring the Hip Hop artistes from the compilation.
His current record – This Party Is Just Getting Started was, in its major part, made in collaboration with Smoke M2D6 – who made all Beats on the aforementioned Compilation. You will find some familiar names on the Selector Dub Narcotic record as well- such as Ashley Eriksson (Lake), Chris Sutton (Hornet Leg, COCO) and Angelo Spencer among many others.
Together with La Castanya, K Records has co-released the new LP by spanish artist Aries. Adieu or Die is a “Unique Excursion into electronic: pop full of shiny harmonies, explosive beats and shimmering sounds“.
Both acts start their tour October 30, 2016, playing a show in Vienna November 3rd at the Celeste.

Milemarker are touring with their current record Overseas, playing a show October 11th, 2016 at the Rhiz. They have also just re-released their album Frigid Forms Sell with its iconic cover, which originally came out in 2000 on Lovitt Records.
Milemarker did Tour Europe extensively in the late 1990ies and early double O’s, visiting us in Vienna rather often. after the Band went on hiatus – follow up acts like Rah Brahs and Challenger continued with this tradition, making sure to leave a mark on us: the Viennese Band Sex Jams even named themselves after a Milemarker 7″ (the one with the Kraftwerk Cover).

Al Burian once did a show at the Dreiraum, Arena where i thought it would be a reading of his Book – the compiled Burn Collector – but instead it was a performance with no amplified instruments, or at least he did not use the PA. at the end, Al was handing out tape cases transformed into rattles and everyone in the room started rattling, calm and excited at the same time, until after 10 or so minutes the show fell apart.
this seemed so awkwardly spontaneous, it was one of the best experiences i had while attending a show.

Goldsoundz, the Styrian Supergroup (often w/ members of Just Friends and Lovers, sometimes Mile Me Deaf but always with Marti Farti) will perform as well. after a few cassettes on Wilhelm Show Me The Major Label, two 7″ e.p.s on Fettkakao and a great full length album on KIM as well as a single with Interpretations by Voodoo Jürgens – the band is playing finally in Vienna again!
for quite a while i have been playing the You Make Me Wanna Die 7″ by The Shivas during the Fettkakao DJ nights at Elektro Gönner and other places. there was always someone coming up to me asking who’s song this is.
The Shivas have 2 LPs out via K Records – White Out and You Know What To Do; a new record should be out due this summer as well!
the Quartet from Portland, Oregon is touring Europe for the 2nd time and now finally come to Vienna on August 25th, 2015 too!
