Flore – RITUALS

Flore – RITUALS on POLAAR

I am super happy to announce that my friend Flore’s album RITUALS is finally around the corner. It will be released April 7th on POLAAR in digital and vinyl. Thanks to numerous supporters, the crowfunding for its vinyl release has met the funding goal in just a few hours. At time of writing, it is funded at 175%. The album has received a large number of positive reviews from press and radio. A terrific remix EP in on its track as well, with features from artists we would only have dreamt of working with just a few years back.

RITUALS is the culmination of more than 6 years of artistic work for Flore. It is also the culmination of 6 years of hard work on POLAAR. It is impossible to dissociate these two endeavors. During all these years, Flore has relentlessly poured her energy in both – after all, the labels’ inaugural release was her own RITUAL Part. 1. As a friend, I am so proud of what she achieves, and the consistency she boast since 20 years.

Her album is a treat and I am so glad we release it on our own imprint.

Hey,

  1. ℹ️ The German police raided homes of „Zwiebelfreunde“ privacy activists this week. Reasons are dubious to say the least.
  2. 🎧 Martyn’s new album ‎Voids is out on Ostgut Ton. I love his music.
  3. 🔑 Protecting cryptocurrencies correctly is hard. This talk about “Building Crypto Castles” raises interesting points about new security models coming with the Information Age.
  4. 👨🏻‍💻 Cryptocurrencies is not only about money. It is also about rare digital collectibles. Collectibles can be purchased on specialized marketplaces like OpenSea or Known Origin. Technically, collectibles are defined by the ERC-721 standard. Don’t know how to code? Don’t worry, the fine people of Smartz provide free smart-contract code.
  5. 👩‍💻👩‍🎨 Crypto-collectibles are huge opportunities for digital-minded artists as they can help expand Patronage Collectibles for Creators.
  6. 📺🇫🇷 La nouvelle saison d’Au Service De La France est disponible sur Arte+7. C’est du bonheur! Jean-François Halin prouve encore qu’il est un des meilleurs auteurs comiques Français.

A bientôt,

Marc

Links Worth Sharing #11

Aloha,

Here are some links I think are worth sharing.

  1. ? The fastest, privacy respecting, DNS resolver is here. Switch to 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 as soon as you can.
  2. ?‍? Scott Listfield’s pop culture paintings of an astronaut exploring a future Earth.
  3. ℹ️ These Glorious Satellite Images Visualize Earth From The Side. And it looks like a video game.
  4. ℹ️ Parkland Students must wear clear backpacks.. This is stupid on so many levels.
  5. ℹ️ The fascinating world of Instagram’s virtual celebrities. 3D rendered models get so much followers on Instagram that they become influencers.
  6. ? “This is people dancing to the decontextualised, reified, corporatised, liberalised, neutralised, asexualised, re-genderised pop reflection of yesteryear’s dance floor’s reality!”. “The Only Constant is Struggle” — DJ Sprinkles Talks Homophobia, Liberal Bullshit, and Why Music is Aural Capitalism.
  7. ? My favorite kind of house music: Hardrock Striker – Motorik Life (DJ Sprinkles’ Moutain of Despair).
  8. ??‍?? Are.na: A distraction-free space where you can collect anything, organize your thoughts, and develop ideas over time. It’s also a community where curiosity and collaboration are more important than algorithms and likes.

Thanks for reading!

Marc
