i walk around in the solar field. from here, the surrounding beams look like cylinderthick, motionless rain or comet tails painted onto the sky. the tower is all white because the sunrays are pointing directly at it, white in an erased way, like if you leave an empty patch on a drawing, and surrounded by a halo. i go over to one of the sun mirrors. it’s huge and darkish and cold when i touch it. i don’t know if it’s cold and immune to the sun or transfixed in a much more extreme way than the desert. a solar plant can take much more sunlight. it has direct access, like a clip through into the thing outside. the widest zone, like the highest point when it’s lightning. the sunlight is magnetic. intense heat from the mantle pushing against the crust to get closer to the sun.

alle guten dinge sind gold. das berliner duo t9 schickt mit „plastik aus gold“ ihr bereits drittes album ins rennen. wobei auch dieses, wie alle anderen davor, nur das ergebnis eines weiteren urlaubs ist. ein weiteres schmuckstück, das nur ein weiteres prequel eines darauf folgenden albums ist. torky tork und doz9 sind halt schmucke dudes. und mindestens genauso produktiv. soll der hype ruhig hype sein. die beiden verschränken sich nicht, aber wollen auch nicht mitspielen. sie wollen nur ihr ding machen und spielen einfach alleine.

sometimes you have to look backwards to move forwards. in the case of maceo plexs dj kicks mix, its case of looking back with a different perspective. while maceo plexs mix is composed mainly of records that are up to 20 years old, its the tone of those records that is important. eric estornel, to use plexs real name, has certainly come up with a forward-thing set that doesnt sound like much else out there.
