DESIGN

  • TIMTONIK (Producer/DJ) lit the internet on fire when he landed his lamborghini Death Star on  the NVR MND soundcloud (two nights ago…)

     Dialing us down of that bullsh*t & onto another masterpiece of his, a preview of what is come in his later release of the EP called “PURGATORY”; including 4 Tracks. starts with a brand new track of mine called “Deep Dark Drone”] A video will be premiered at a later date, stay tune for an update once that information is revealed. What do I have to say about it, Nothing more than you would conjure from the experience from you just listened to the damn thing! It is so slick & dark   –  but has a very comforting vibration in a sense. That sense being, instead of cold/wet youre getting warm/wet; at the same time. The waves hover all over you. I think this is by far one of my all-time favorite NVRM1X’s; produced by TIMTONIK. seriously a glimpse into Alien Tech (AT).

    It’s imaginative, the first emissions aren’t so predictable, to instigate any feelings of nostalgic Tech House. Well I say that, but with a grain of salt if you’re an enthusiast. The spectrum these days has definitely changed since its beginnings, but what some of us refer to as “old heads”, are a pedigree & cultural those personality types are still functioning models of society.

    Those of you whom I’m speaking of are already activated enough to enjoy this mix. It’s an experiential stain on the minds of those who enjoy a hypnotic & trance like dancing experience. Steam evaporates from the symbols, as the bass of your feet stomping the ground in an ethereal orgasmic tension. Never wanting to stop, as music turns into an alarming of deliberate movements to exhume oneself from their prisons.

    A NVR MND Moment from TIMTONIK

    TIMTONIK:  “…Also there is coming an Teaser for my upcoming music video…”

    “This music video which is set to release, come end of June/July on VOXNOX Records

    “The EP is called PURGATORY; including 4 Tracks. starts with a brand new track of mine called “Deep Dark Drone, which will be released soon on the voxnox records compilation. At the end (50:00 – 50:08) you can hear the first chords of an upcoming freedownload of mine; which is called [Sound of Silence]…”

    “…Another thing about the Mix is that this mix is slightly different to my own mixtape series Future Death Tape. It’s an more Dark Deep Techno – After Hour Set, which should show that my music will become even more darker and deeper. It only includes music i personally prefer and i would play those tracks on afterhour gigs. But I will still continue my FDT series with that dark future techno music. And, I as Tim Tonik will also produce that kind of music , but also that new deep and dark [stuff]….”

  • I can honestly say I made my big break on 2D death brawlers some time ago, back in the mid 90’s with all of its the pre-rendered models & the low resolution blood splatters. Bloody over the top action & martial arts movies were at a certain peak in my adolescence & some of the most of the most outrageous gore & mutilation was ever released, on our home entertainment systems (which was  such a big controversy at the time). “Violence in the hands of children” .

    Although – The MK series began in the arcade, (like most video games), that later received a port to a home console, but unlike most games it was thought it should be against the law to own in homes & even arcades. With that kind of backlash from media outlets & over zealous parents it was a relic that I certainly had to get my hands on. I most favored playing Mortal Kombat on the Sega Genesis; for its very unique controller. The style of the genesis was ultimately Simple, & Sleek. Much like looking at console designed by H. R. Giger, almost alien That particular  button layout offered a more complex combination system. Resulting in a harder learning experience. It drove me nuts trying to figure it out at a young age, I cant say that I have acquired it even to this day. Although, I can say I am more eager now than ever to try…

    The Xbox One addition I presume was intentionally designed to feature a similar experience, much like the Genesis controller, here we see an almost exactly identical controller. Alas the button configuration is not merely a three face button system, but six face buttons, to accommodate the same features, found on the newest iteration of the Dualshock.

    I believe we will see some of the most original feeling gaming content, some hardcore fans have been waiting for, but for the most part when it comes to MK, 2D was where I found the game at its best. The system has been to once again mock that field of play. Incorporating very interactive maps/levels that your character ‘Kombat’ on. I see its creators are steering the franchise in a more appealingly unique & original setting. with MKS 2D many iterations came these retro controllers in which Hardcore Fans all loved to play, to expose its most hardcore moments. Let us not forget to mention the sweat & slipperiness of the controller from trying to mash together a combo quick enough to save yourself from unforgiving combos received from enemies

  • Night Mode

    You may have heard of this event in recent months, its gaining a lot of momentum especially over the past couple of months, with the curation of the new Art Gallery MINT, but Columbus, Ohio is in no way shy to Electronic Dance Events, in the past local promoters put together, some honorable mentions would include;  (Scott Niemet’s) Sweatin’, Heat Wave, & the experimental energies Skylab hosted (some of my favorites from back in 2012 when artists like Pictureplane, traveling all the way from Seattle)… & there were a few others, some friends probably remember more vividly than me.

    Columbus music scene tends to fall short of Ideal in some ways especially if you aren’t familiar with some of the local kids in the area, where at the houses around town host underground events/shows, or aren’t only into top 40’s EDM, or even outlets that offer music you are constantly being forced to bare witness at all hours of the day. If you’re someone whom does find themselves feeling a stronger craving or is just hungrier for a music collectively that far exceeds your own expectations, as well as experiences. Music that will take you to a higher place in your mind, abstractly (in regard to how you enjoy music, or what it “should” sounds like), and make you project it physically on the dance floor.

    ca-p-downtownabbey-01

    That is not to say Columbus’ womb has grown a lot, and it would have had to in order to harbor such monumental events as this one has certainly been gearing up to be, with its parties and futures events like NIGHT MODE. It definitely garners a new breed of event goer, and night life experience. From the music choices, to the environmental settings. The layout designer alone are having a field day with what they can do to turn a space into a club space that has never existed outside of Columbus’ renowned High Street clubs and bars; Axis, Level, or Union. These are all great places to go out to, and have a good time – but they don’t encapsulate you as much as a night club should, or does, but it is nice have these options – question mark – What I am getting at is Night Mode offers something more, as an artistic staple of Columbus culture, and does not simply cater to a single stereotype of culture.

    CHECK OUT THIS LIVE VIDEO TO SEE WHAT I MEAN…

    IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING A BIT MORE HI-TEK, NEW WAY TO LOOK AT NIGHT LIFE, THIS IS UNLIKE ANYTHING IN COLUMBUS. FOR THE FIRST TIME (IN A WHILE, AT LEAST), THERE IS A GREAT DANCE CLUB THAT TOUCHES BASS (NO PUN INTENDED) WITH INTERESTING CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS. THE EVENT HAS BEEN GOING STRONG FOR ABOUT TWO YEARS NOW WITH AN INCREDIBLY UNIQUE SENSE OF VISUAL DESIGN & DIRECTION, WHICH AT THE TIME HAS BEEN HELD IN A MEDIUM-SIZED BAR SETTING, IS BEING MOVED TO A GALLERY SPACE, NAMED MINT (MENTIONED ABOVE). ITS HARD TO FIND SOMETHING RELEVANT/CATERS TO AUDIENCE WHO ARE IN THERE YOUTH, AND ALLOWS THEM TO FEEL FREE MENTALLY TO LET THEM ENJOY THEMSELVES… OF COURSE IT IS 21+, MIND YOU.  BUT AGAIN, IT GIVES COLUMBUS THE CHANCE TO BE A COMMUNITY AGAIN, AND GRANTS THEM THIS PORTAL TO BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE EXP. THAT IN THE LIKES OF AN ENVIRONMENT THEMATICALLY IDENTICAL TO ONE IN A SCENE SUCH AS THE UK RAVE/DANCE SCENE, IN RELATION TO DRUM AND BASS, & MORE ADVANCED GENRES TYPES LIKE FOOTWERK, OR JUKE. NOT EXCLUDING HIP HOP, AND SOME OTHER VARIATIONS OF ELECTRONIC MUSIC.

  • : FIRST LOOK :: M I N T GALLERY :::

    A collective of young artists just last year, have gathered enough resources, to aid them in adding a very necessary installation in the Columbus night life scene. Known as  M I N T, ( the gallery is located 42 W Jenkins, Columbus Ohio), this gallery stands to truly become a significant relic as not only a “safe space”, (and) not only one for artists, but one free to grow to have a deep connection with artistic youth of Columbus, as they grow inside of inside of it. 

    Fed up, with seemingly infinite limitations throughout the of end the adolescent years, that struggle has invoked a sort of “Go Big or Go Home” mentality. Everyone supports each other here, regardless of their differences.

    Columbus is mainly stuffed with a gigantic college campus, OSU, the iconic dive-bars that only locals know to go, and hidden eateries scattered a bout, the few music halls (generally only book larger bands, leaving little room for lesser known collectives). So most of the urban landscape can be imagined as a very barren place, in an aesthetic sense. It can be hard to place oneself, especially those with such overly active [millennial] minds. Who view it with less accessibility to those whom have somehow “adjusted” into the area. 

    [For those who are not enrolled students in a campus, with those types of resources or businessmen and women who are financing their own offices, boutiques, and trinket stores, it can appear to be a bit dismal at times, trying to attempt to become something bigger than everything around you.] 

    These youths come from such a long history of  house parties/events, and a multitude of LGBT safe houses that have come and gone, but ultimately continue to make to the necessary leaps needed, into beneficial circumstances such as their own first commercial art space, where they rent the space out for curation and cultivation of all kinds, wether it be commercial or otherwise. 

    NN: Would you care to tell me about the Mint Gallery; Mission, Affiliations, Members, Programs Offered, and Hours: 

    CJ Brazleton: MINT is an art space that was once a meat processing factory. It is occupied by a group of emerging artists in Columbus Ohio. We are located on the south side of Columbus in Merion Village at 47 W Jenkins Avenue. 

    Our goal is as a collective is to encourage and cultivate collaboration and new modes of thinking. MINT gives these artists an affordable place to make their work, while at the same time being a core piece to a much bigger picture; a responsive movement for the Columbus’ Arts community.

    Right now I think MINT an incredible thing because it is such a temporal space. Alternative art spaces like ours are everywhere, and they usually have short life spans. These spaces are usually ran by artists who need to create their work, and it is also a vessel that will allow them to do what their local galleries or institutions are too afraid to do. So to have that mentality, everything you do in that activated space becomes precious to you.

    After the artist(s) showcase, their is typically a performance artist post show, featured ‘Ground Is Lava’

    We have members in a lot of different fields. We have members who are responsible for Night Mode Sound System, a key collection of djs in the city. A lot of the future projects and collaborations are in the works, but I can assure you they will be diverse as hell in what they offer.

    Currently, MINT has an art gallery, music space, and studios. The way we program our events seems to be pretty open. Interested in working with us? Contact any member and they will propose that idea to the group.

    NN: What is the event history as to date – Roster of Past Exhibitions ?

    CJ Brazelton: We’ve had five art exhibitions thus far. Our inaugural show was titled Influx, featuring Walter Sutin, Noah Markoe, Ben Pederson, and Zachary Armstrong. That was a key show because it made us realize what it took to install in what used to be a chicken processing room. So when it was time for Dark Matter, HARD/SOFT, and Refigural, we knew how to go about it with those concrete walls.

    NN: How long are each of the exhibitions ?

    CJ Brazelton: Each show on average seems to run about two and a half weeks. Our gallery hours currently are Thursday through Saturday, from 6pm – 10 pm.

    NN: You have artist talks, as well during each showcase. I enjoyed very much. Interactivity intellectually & and thereafter – live music and musical performances.

    CJ Brazelton: Interactivity intellectually & and thereafter – live music and musical performances. 

    NN: Main points of focus and/or interests as reference, for first time guests/visitors

    CJ Brazelton: I think the main point is to give the first time guests and visitors a unique experience within the space. To make it known that the building they are in has a history and is being appropriated into this cultural structure. All the signs from the meat factory are still up and the murkiness is still there. So it’s interesting to see the visitors react to the artwork reacting to the space
