• Multicast on Sleeping Pills OST

    Back over 10 years ago a local movie company Kinotonik produced this awesome 35mm underground film Sleeping Pills.  Featured in the soundtrack are several Obliq Recordings tunes.  The movie’s Director Michael Lauter has decided to put a REDUX version out on HD Bluray format!

    This is an Indiegogo funding project, so jump out there and support it! One neat thing about this movie is it was filmed in many unique Colorado architectural facilities that have since been destroyed! This film is preserving these interesting Colorado relics!

    Looking forward to finally having a copy of this great movie to watch again and hearing our music on a Bluray HD movie!


  • Obliq New and Re-releases with bonus tracks

    Howdy.

    Happy New Year!

    In celebration I recently posted about 100 free tunes on Bandcamp.com. A great site; these are free so preview them and download anything that you like! And tell your friends! Many of our older albums have been stacked with rare and unreleased material. The newest album is a collaboration with the great Denver band Equulei. Multicast and Freq Modif are represented here.  Look forward to more releases in 2014!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     


  • Obliq artists submit tracks for Namlook Tribute

    Carpe Sonum RecordsFor those into contemporary electronic music you may have heard of the Fax +49-69/450464 label (and many sublabels) out of Germany, run by Pete Namlook. In the mid-90s I remember while working at the record store getting in new disks WEEKLY, yes weekly, and we’d sell many copies to faithful fans and electronic music connoisseurs alike! The music is great and the label was strong!

    The music was mostly in the “Ambient” style but there were many great releases that were dancefloor oriented, trance and experimental. What drew me to the Fax label, aside from the great music, was Pete Namlook’s analog synth collection and also all the old-school artists that he introduced to the contemporary scene by doing collaboration releases such as Klaus Schulze’s Dark Side of the Moog series, etc.

    Unfortunately Pete Namlook passed away recently and his world distributor, Ear/Rational Music out of Colorado, decided to put together a tribute release on the new label Carpe Sonum inspired by and dedicated to Namlook. The tribute release will be a mega-box set including tracks from existing alumni of the Fax label and also with fan tracks. The vinyl set is going to be killer! The fan track’s inclusion on the 3 CDs is chosen completely by fan vote!

    Our bands have several tracks submitted for the release and would love for you to vote for us. The track names and artists have been scrambled to focus the voters on the music rather than a popularity contest; and I can’t publically post our tracks here, but if you contact me I’ll forward the ones to be sure to vote “Love It!” on. :)

    Here are the rules of the Namlook Tribute. Here are the tracks to listen to and vote on.

    Hopefully we make the cut!!!   Thanks for your vote!

    UPDATE:  We went through every track, here were our personal favorites:

    • esbrakoi, irblotso, jinnubot, plemmith
    • archibrot, bijorsti, demyalip, graklopy, gozbilto, graklopy

  • New tunes available for first time online!

    In doing some cleaning of the Obliq vault I discovered a huge amount of cassette tapes and DATs of the early years; many pre-date Obliq Recordings.  I’ve been discovering that many DATs are no longer playing correctly and so I have my deck and borrowed two other decks from friends and have been able to get most into a modern format (WAV and MP3 for now).  Also, many cassettes are broken in one way or another; but nothing a little surgery can’t fix!

    I have been also posting DJ mixes from the old Radio Station and Club days (starting in the late 80′s) as I get time over at davealex.com.  As I get time I’ll record more of these and likely make them available online (the easiest way for me to listen to them; so might as well share if anyone else may be interested too)!
