Out now is the brand new EP “Life Is My Teacher” by Miss Kittin. You can download the track for free now right after the jump. The song offers up a glimpse of Kittin’s third album, the self-produced double-CD “Calling From The Stars”, to be released on the Paris based wSphere Records on April 22, 2013.
Apart from this free download the single is also available as an EP featuring three more new tracks including the exclusive cut “I.L.A.N.E.N.O.” and “Tamarin Bay”, both of which reflect the album’s second disc of ’90s-inspired ambient techno. Also added is a remix of “Life Is My Teacher” by the Spanish duo Borderline.
Electronically Yours, featuring Joakim Montelius (Covenant), PAGE, Diskodiktator and more, in the media
As reported on earlier, the electronica project ‘Electronically Yours’, is now being covered across several leading electronic music magazines, below are a couple of links, and if you are in Sweden on Dec 15th make sure to watch their live performance at ElectriXmas
It is a secret group on Facebook called Electronically Yours that has released an album featuring classic 70′s songs and remixed to fit an electronic audience of the 21st century. And it is not an anonymous bunch of musicians on this album – among the secret members you will find Joakim Montelius (Covenant) under his alter ego Tectonic Knights, Eddie Bengtsson with PAGE, Diskodiktator, computer and Steelberry Clones, to name but a few.
You might know, or might not know that Joakim Montelius (Covenant) is a member of a secret society called Electronically Yours, a bunch of (mostly) Swedish geeks and electronic music aficionados. Some are famous, some are merely notorious. A few of them are both.
Joakim Montelius (Covenant) and others featured on charity compilation ‘Friends of Electronically Yours – The Seventies Revisited’
And for those of you who know Swedish there are two more in depth articles at HD and Zero Music Magazine:
Page, Diskodiktator, Compute, Covenant-Joakim och ett flertal andra kreativa artister på en och samma skiva? Elektroniska nytolkningar av sjuttiotalshits från bland andra Deep Purple, Sweet, Neil Young och Curtis Mayfield? Ett välgörenhetsprojekt som stöder världens barn? Samlingen Friends of Electronically Yours – The Seventies Revisited sprudlar av nytänkande och värmer frusna hjärtan i vinterkylan. Zero har pratat med Facebookgruppen bakom verket.

Right before Christmas a new and extremely rare electronic music album has hit the shelves.
It is a secret group on Facebook called Electronically Yours that has released an album featuring classic 70′s songs and remixed to fit an electronic audience of the 21st century. And it is not an anonymous bunch of musicians on this album – among the secret members you will find Joakim Montelius (Covenant) under his alter ego Tectonic Knights, Eddie Bengtsson with PAGE, Diskodiktator, computer and Steelberry Clones, to name but a few. To provide you with the right feeling of the album we give you Joakim’s post on the official Covenant Facebook page below, and if you are in Sweden on December 15th you can see Electronically Yours live on stage at ElectriXmas
Message from Joakim from Covenant:
So. X-mas is saved. See, I’m a member of a secret society called Electronically Yours. We are a bunch of (mostly) Swedish geeks and electronic music aficionados. Some are famous, some are merely notorious. A few of us are both. A while back the Chairman of this obscure virtual tribe had an idea. A whim, actually, but through the means of great secrecy, clever masterminding, as well as gullible people willing to accept an unknown, non-negotiable missio
n from which there was no way to back out, the whim has now turned into the fulfilment of a rather daring project.
The idea was to turn a bunch of great ’70s hits by artists as diverse as Sweet, Slade, Hot Chocolate, Tom Jones, Curtis Mayfield and Deep Purple into modern, electronic interpretations. The results baffled us all. So we decided to make an album out of it and release it as a non-profit project and all proceeds will be given away to the Swedish charity “Musikhjälpen”.
And that’s why X-mas is saved: you get a great album (and I do not say that just because I’m on it as my alter ego Tectonic Knights, it really is an amazing collection of songs) PLUS a very large part of the money you pay for it goes to help people in dire need of it. That’s what I call a win-win arrangement.

“Rene, Make Noise’s Cartesian sequencer, continually surprises me by generating unusual and strangely emotive melodies in bizarre time signatures. I powered up my modular to find this rather forlorn sequence conjured from nowhere in particular. For some reason it reminded me of the more ambient side of Autechre so I should probably put a beat behind it and call it Tarnwater or Sliverfoil or something…”
