Elektron special feature: Simonne Jones

The world has seen two major scientific discoveries in the last couple of years: the Higgs boson has been detected at CERN, and evidence pointing to the existence of gravity waves has been collected by the BICEP instrument at the South Pole Amundsen-Scott research station. Both are crucial and greatly anticipated discoveries - and yet they are fundamentally incongruent. They represent the ever present problem of what the basic grain of the universe is. Particles? Waves? 

In a way, the same dichotomy is true for producer, artist, musician, and biochemistry researcher Simonne Jones. Is she a scholar? Is she an electronic musician? A musical scientist? A scientific musician? Like the particle/wave duality of nature, Jones excels at combining the two, as anyone fortunate enough to have seen one of her poly-curricular shows will agree.

Elektron special feature: Kid Koala

Kid Koala (Eric San) is without question the most prolific and fervently productive arboreal marsupial in the northern hemisphere. Apart from evolving the artisan craft of turntabling (and getting picked up by Ninja Tune at the age of 22), he has scored films, produced graphic novels, books, and, most recently, a new take on the classic vaudeville show. He is one of the three pillars — alongside Del and Dan the Automator — of the fantastic hiphop edifice Deltron 3030.

Spotlight: Erika

The notions of space and Detroit are two very good springboards for late night studio sessions. The fact is proven by Hexagon Cloud, the solo LP debut by Erika. The sparse, other-worldy melodies intersecting with deep Machinedrum beats create an atmosphere of intriguing strangeness. This is brilliant stuff.
