tonight, around midnight (NY time) the new 12k site will go active. in this site is a NEWS section which will function in the same manner as this blog, yet be integrated into the site in a much nicer way (this blog is not integrated at all).

after today (if all goes well) please get your 12k news directly from our website as this blog will no longer be updated. it will, however, remain active as an archive and as we transfer the many years of posts into the new site.

thank you for all of your support since February 13th, 2006!

LAWRENCE ENGLISH INTERVIEW March 10, 2010

Lawrence English on Sound Proector

You’ve recently been in Russia with Ben Frost at “Electromechanica” festival in St.Petersburg and gave a concert in Moscow. Tell us about your impressions. Did you like Russia? What was interesting while you were in our country?

I found Russia an entirely curious place, quite different to other countries I have visited. I guess both Moscow and St Petersburg are vastly different cities – historically, socially, architecturally etc – but I did feel they shared a certain sense of pace.

It was inspired to see so many people at the concerts, we had the chance to meet people described ‘fanatics’, which was truly a pleasure. It was also good to see that there’s such a thriving community of artists, labels and promoters all working to bring about more awareness of this music. In Moscow we had a chance to talk with Dmitry, the label owner of Monochrome Vision, and he offered some great insights into what’s happening in Russia presently.

I guess for me one of the most interesting experiences was visiting a flea market some way outside St. Petersburg – it was quite a vision…. beautifully chaotic!
