THE CAVE has updated their site with some new tracks; including electronica tracks from Berliner Maschinenfabrik, Bears in Nippon and The Modifiers, listen below:
The Quietus has a nice interview out with felix Kubin, read an excerpt here:
With his great new album Zemsta Plutona just released, the unique German sci-fi synth-pop explorer and sound artist speaks to David Stubbs about musical deconstruction, radio art, and reconnecting Germany with the culture of Eastern Europe
The music of Felix Kubin spans, in its scope, the years 1916 to 2016. He straddles pop, sound art and composition, regarding all of them of equal value. Active in music since his pre-teens, his music alludes to, and draws on, the spirit of Dada, expressionism, Weimar cabaret, post-war musique concrète, the unique radio art form of Hörspiel, Kraftwerk and the great wave of early 80s German groups who preceded the bland misnomer of Neue Deutsche Welle.
As well as the early 80s German artists he first heard on one of the multiple radio sets in the rooms in which he grew up, Kubin’s music is reminiscent of of a host of artists whose work has collapsed the walls between pop and the commercial, deconstruction and the avant garde – among them The Honeymoon Killers, Raymond Scott and Iannis Xenakis.
His latest album, Zemsta Plutona, finally released on his own Gagarin label, is as good as anything he has ever recorded since the “Tetchy Tapes” he first made when practically still a child on his newly acquired Korg MS-20 synth. It’s been well road-tested. “Usually, I tend to play tracks first live before I put them on record, where it’s possible to play them live,” he explains. “So, people know them from live concerts. Most of the tracks for this were ready for 2009, and were ready to be released on a French label, but that fell through – then I got an offer from a label in Los Angeles who wanted to put out an album but that took so long, two years – until finally, I said, this is ridiculous, I’ve been playing these tracks live for so long – I need to put this out.”

Remix artists featured on The Last Martian EP:
Vile Electrodes initially formed through a mutual affection for early synthpop, delta blues, rock n roll and miserable indie bands, but their sound has probably been equally influenced by fetish porn, crap dead-end jobs and an unhealthy obsession with analogue synthesizers.
They began as a duo, have picked up and lost various people along the way and now exist as a 2/3/4 piece (in terms of human content) according to the time of day, the direction of the wind and the position of the stars.
They are currently working together on several exciting new songs and projects that will appear in the not-too-distant future, including additional collaboration with Sound of Science.

And a whole lot more updated weekly with fresh and experimental electronica acts. Here’s how the y describe themselves:
“All songs/tunes/music at THE CAVE is the result of one small team of song writers operating under the same umbrella. The common theme is all about the love of electronic music done by hardware and software synthesizers.”

THE CAVE – a small team of electro enthusiasts has created this electro music portal to share their sounds to all fans of ambient, electro, synth pop, electronica, techno music. All sounds and music produced with analog synthesizers, drum machines, and fused through modern day music production environments. This video provides a snapshot of some of the sounds you can find in THE CAVE.
In this episode, Andrew and Pete discuss hardware and software for making music. We’ll cover the basics of how electronic music is created and recorded in modern home and pro studios, and then dive in on the stuff we can all use.

Kebu live at the Assembly Computer Festival at Hartwall Arena, Helsinki, 2.8.2013. Real-time computer graphics by VJ Julius Tuomisto and his Z Vector software. Many many thanks to the amazing crew at Assembly for not only arranging the concert but also filming and broadcasting the show (the whole show was streamed online in realtime)!
The song was performed using only analog synthesizers, either played live or sequenced. The performance was recorded directly from the mixer to a stereo track and later mixed together with the ambience from the arena. A few mistakes have been cut out and replaced with the audio from a rehearsal take.
Equipment used in this song: Roland JX8P, Juno 60, Alpha Juno 1&2, TR-808; Moog Source, Korg Polysix, Poly 61; Jomox AirBase99, Touched-by-sound DRM1, Oberheim Matrix 1000, Yamaha RS7000 (only for MIDI sequencing), Behringer DDX3216, Lexicon MPX500, as well as a midi patchbay and additional preamps for my mixer.
