Bear Bones, Lay Low / Don't DJ
After two entries that have seen contributions from Legowelt and Milan W., the third record in BAKK’s Plafond series hosts new work from Don’t DJ and Bear Bones, Lay Low. Both of the jams here take up a full-side, and the artists luxuriate in the length of their pieces. While the latter's collaboration has yielded a psychedelic, New Age-y electronic odyssey in ‘Dissolve Into The Night’, Don’t DJ’s ‘Rag For Rudolf Rocker’ is a tense anti-groove that could be a soundtrack to a piece of contemporary dance.

Wise words from Don’t DJ there. All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End is a somnambulant, wistful collection of techno-noir. Don’t DJ’s originals range from purring electronica in the vein of Jan Jelinek (‘Veles’) to lengthy and pensive synth ambiences (‘Two Of Pentacles’). Newworldaquarium provides a deep, minimal and ethereal re-rub of ‘Veles’.

Don’t DJ is a provocative project of producer Florian Meyer, seemingly challenging the orthodoxies of the electronic music world by refusing to DJ. This angle is supported by tracks with unusual rhythm structures and a wide range of textures: Authentic Exoticism is a lovely listen, but a slightly odd one. 12” EP release on the Sexes label.
Don’t DJ (AKA Florian Meyer/fff) has had releases on Mother’s Finest, Svbterrean Tapes and Wisdom Teeth. Now returning to Berceuse Heroique with this two track EP of polarised experimental techno house. Wiederganger is chaotic, confusing, and paranoia inducing, scatty rhythms that mesh and unravel to the point of making any sense, with the reverse playing it straight (for the most part), minimal and with a uniquely bizarre sound palette.
Hyperspace is The Place / Hyperspace is No Place is the latest mini-album from Don’t DJ. A collection of ambient sounds and experimental electronica make this mini-release a great listen. As with a lot of Don’t DJ’s work, the tracks build slowly into a rhythmic trance of soft beats and soothing melodies. Available on Vinyl LP.
Polyrhythm obsessive Florian Meyer AKA Don’t DJ appears on this notoriously oblique imprint to further entwine Indonesia-inspired gamelan psychedelia and minimal techno for the chinstroking auteur. This 12” is a repress, one year on from its original release – includes the Dresvn remix on the reverse.
Gung Ho 1, 2, 3D is a piece for handmade percussion objects (tuned PVC pipes and the like) devised by the New Zealand group From Scratch. This interesting release puts two sections from the original 1982 recording alongside new interpretations by goat, Don’t DJ and Utena Kobayashi Group. All versions are hypnotic and wonderful. CD and double LP editions on EM Records.
Paradon’t is the sonic conjunction of Don’t DJ and Paraklang, taking the opportunity of their collaboration to take both of their sounds way out. thrd mpct ep has a weird and wonky kick to it, casually avoiding steady grooves in favour of a chopped-up blend of rhythms, samples and textures. Exciting experiments, released in a limited edition of 500 12”s on Disk.
On Line (Volume One) is the first in a series of collaborative albums in which notable producers create new work with the others in mind. These are not pair-ups (these are three solo tracks), but the tracks were devised in tandem, ensuring complementary sounds. With Simo Cell, K-LONE and Don’t DJ on board, high quality is a certainty. 12” on Wisdom Teeth.
The first tape release on the Mother’s Finest label pairs up two mixes by Hodge and Don’t DJ. However, neither producer is headed for the dancefloor here: instead they quest around in the reams of experimental ambience, cutting together some truly atmospheric trips. C90 on Mother’s Finest.
Don’t DJ’s new double LP release is designed as a demonstration of his concept of ‘Musique Acéphale’, in which tracks try and escape from the traditions of linear time: rather than clearly starting and finishing, these pieces just ‘are’ for a while, and the listener is encouraged to wander around inside the sounds, finding new places to focus all the way. Banging. 2LP on Berceuse Heroique.
Don’t DJ, they told him when he was a youngster. Motivated by negativity, climbing through perseverance, Don’t DJ embraced the hate and made it his motor. Ka-Dants is a 12” that shows his potential, the growth he has lived through and the catchy IDM that has become his trademark cadence.
On this stamped vinyl 12”, ethnomusicologist Arthur Boto Conley has selected tracks from German producer Don’t DJ that incorporate euclidean rhythm patterns. What that means outside of academic music theory is a beautifully packaged collection of unusual electronic sounds. Traditional percussive music is filtered through algorithms for a dense rhythmic assault.
Hexentrix by Don’t DJ sees Florian Meyer put West African polyrhythms and US minimalism into the pot and mix up a euphoric stew of apocalyptic bass, hypnotic beats and sublime melody. On the flip Jordan GCZ (of Juju & Jordash) introduces elements of free jazz to his remix whilst adding otherworldly synth sounds that recall Terrence Brown. On Berceuse Heroique Inc.
