Cafe 2001 [a record company]

A New Month,A New Guest Mix.This Mix is a special one because the Music of it don't come from Japan as normal but from Norway.A few Months ago,i got a Mail by a sympathetic Guy named Christoffer,he asked me if could help him promoting his restarted Label Cafe 2001 [a record company].Of course i can because I'm a Fan of Remington Super 60 & Micromars.But let Christoffer tell his Story.
Cafe 2001 [a record company] was started by Christoffer Schou (Remington Super 60) and Christer Jensen (Micromars) early in 2000. At the time a large number of artists that produced music in their bedroom using Casio keyboards and other cheezy instruments started getting media attention and airplay.
To capture the sound that was happening, Christoffer and Christer started Cafe 2001.
Although they only released 4 albums (2 compilations) and one EP they sold out everything and scored great reviews.
The label was shut down in 2004.
But now Christoffer and Jon Kristian Furuheim (Safariari) have once again launched the label. First they are leaking their back catalogue and making it available for free download. After that new magic will once again happen on the Norwegian music scene!

Bungalow Two

Back on popular request.On our second visit at the Bungalow we meet residents like the young french Thai-Girl Laila France.She teamed up with scottish songwriter Momus to record an extraordinary album full of Soft Eroticism, Wilhelm Reich's Philosophy, Weird Synthesizer-Sounds.Gregori Czerkinsky was a leading member of the successful French Exotic Pop Duo Mikado.Combustible Edison sought to rehabilitate the reputation of 'Easy Listening'.Successfully.Legions of new projects/bands like Air, Kid Loco, Barry Adamson, Gentle People and Tipsy were inspired by Com Eds early pioneering take on lounge- and especially soundtrack music.Talking of soundtrack music.In 1966 composer Peter Thomas,left planet Earth to musically accompany the adventurous journeys of Space Patrol Orion.His (for that time) rather wacky and futuristic sounds had lacked the appropriate appreciation and understanding. Meanwhile he ranks with the galaxy-wide top composers of the sixties together with Henry Manchini, Esquivel, John Barry, Ennio Morricone.Bolero on the moon rocks was sampled by Jarvis Cocker for "This is Hardcore" by Pulp.Enjoy your visit.Part 3 soon.

Beat Meisjes

Chicks on Beat NO.5.The Netherlands during 60's were known for their more liberal Politics in relation to Soft Drugs & Sex.So it was no wonder that a large Beat Scene was happening at that Time.Most of the known Bands in this Scene however, were all Male.But these 12 Tunes show that there also were some strong Women in the Scene. Rita Hovink who had several Hits till her tragic Death in 1979.Mariska Veres who later joins the well-known Shocking Blue or Deedee Pitt (Gonnie Rijkes), the first Dutch girl singer wearing a mini-skirt with her only Song.So convince yourself that the Netherlands has more to offer than "Gabba",Cheese & Tulips.Veel Plezier

2.Dee Dee Pit-Laars erop
3.Els Molenaar-Gezakt of geslaagd
4.Karin Kent-Als ik een jongen was
