WWII Poems

And you, my friends from the latest call-up!
My life has been spared to mourn for you.
Not to freeze over your memory as a weeping willow,
But to shout all your names to the whole world!
But never mind names!
None of that matters - You are with us!
Everyone down on your knees!
A crimson light pours!
And the Leningraders come through the smoke in even rows
The living and the dead: for glory never dies.

August 1942. Dyurmen

Gervase Phinn


From the classroom rolled the great expanse of the Dale.
The sad child in the corner stared out like a rabbit in a trap.
“He has special needs,” explained the teacher, in a hushed, maternal voice.
“Real problems with his reading, and his number work is weak. Spelling non-existent, writing poor. He rarely speaks. He’s one of the less able in school.”
The lad could not describe the beauty that surrounded him,
the soft green dale and craggy hills.
He could not spell the names
Of those mysterious places which he knew so well.
But he could tickle a trout, ride a horse,
Repair a fence and dig a dyke,
Drive a tractor, plough a field,
Milk a cow and lamb a ewe,
Name a bird by a faded feather,
Smell the seasons and predict the weather.
Yes, that less able child could do all those things.
-Gervase Phinn,
The other side of the dales

Crazy P - Heartbreaker


British - Funky House
Crazy P have made a really classy number called Heart Breaker and its due for release next week. The original isn’t out and out disco which the group have become known for… its more refined and laidback with a smooth bass line and guitar loop topped off with a nice little sample.

Monsieur Adi -Some Kind Of Love


French Electronic
Some Kind Of Love, Adi’s new track, flows like water out of the speakers. Warm tones and gently plucked guitar give the track a pensive, introspective mood. Like the moment in an 80s action flick where the anti-hero is reassessing his actions before the final fight. Basically an ‘In The Air Tonight’ moment. Adi captures the feel perfectly with layers of atmospheric synths and a heart-breaking melody.

Frank Wiedemann & Ry Cuming - Howling (Âme Remix)


Kristian Beyer & Frank WiedemannKarlsruhe, Germany ( Deep House )

"During the course of production, our sound changes so much, depending on what music we are listening to, what mood we're in, what the others are doing. I own a record shop so I can see what's going on at the moment in the electronic music scene. Going through all of these influences brings us always to some point. I hope it will still always sound like us, but maybe it's different to records we did before. It's a constant evolving process"

Nico Stojan - After The Hour (Original Mix)


Minimal - (Germany)
Having had residencies since he was 16 and a feel for music that is apparent through every set and release that makes bloom, this kid from Kruezberg really has his path set out. I want to say 'watch this space', but we already are.

Something Good I Need


British/Irish - Soul
I was in a place that I didn't wanna be.
Seeing face after face, that I didn't wanna see.
I didn't go out of my mind,
only god knows.
And all those girls that i used to see running round,
was like the rain that i used to see pouring down,
and they did nothing for me.

A Dream Within A Dream


Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream? 
Edgar Allan Poe
