Various Artists – A Beginning of an End {CANDY035}

Artist: Various Artists
Title:
A Beginning of an End
Label:
Candy Mind Records
Catalog #:
CANDY035
Release Date:
2007/04/09


This is the last Candy Mind release.

Ever.

Candy Mind has been bought (for a half-decent amount of money) by swedish net-label Subnatura; who has decided to close down Candy Mind for good due to competitive issues.

However, since the Candy Mind crew is made of energy, and energy is subject to a strict global conservation law (that is, it can neither be created nor destroyed), the Candy Mind spirit will (in some way and form) live on. And blablabla.

Here are our last tracks. Enjoy!

Goodbye!

01. BEST FWENDS – SK8 OR LIVE (GOTO80 REMISS)
Best Fwends loves to skate…and when they are not skating, together with Goto80 (who is wearing his special skating hat, of course), they usually sing about the art of skating. This is an example of the skateor-sing phenomenon.

02. LIQUID STRANGER – I AND I
The letter I is the ninth letter in the Latin alphabet. Its English name is pronounced [a?]. Liquid strangers song is about this letter not only one, but 2 (two!) times! The dot over the lowercase ‘i’ is sometimes called a tittle. In the Turkish alphabet, dotted and dotless I are considered separate letters and both have uppercase (I, I) and lowercase (i, i) forms. This song does not, however, cover such (more advanced) topics.

03. DOROTHY`S MAGIC BAG – PICASSOS PENIS
Pablo Ruiz Picasso (October 25, 1881 – April 8, 1973) was a Spanish painter and sculptor. His full name is Pablo Diego José Santiago Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Crispín Crispiniano de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz Blasco y Picasso. One of the most recognized figures in 20th century art, he is best known as the co-founder, along with Georges Braque, of cubism. This song is about picassos penis.

04. PSILODUMP – ROUTINE E OF THE NO-BOTS
Just because the Bot Exclusion Standard been overlooked doesn’t mean it’s insignificant. As its name suggests, the Bot Exclusion Standard was created to govern robots, and to feed their pets. Psilodump is one of the pets, and is giving us his own (unique) point of view on the subject.

05. PAZA RAHM – OCH HON SA (CYNKOT GRUPPA REMIX)
And she said… she said what?!?

06. LITHIS – THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A MEANINGFUL CONTEXT
Is creating a meaningful context for learning object reuse any different from creating a meaningful context for reusing other educational materials, like book chapters or research articles? Ask Lithis; he knows.

07. GOTO80 – JAHMAHA BUGGDUB
Robert Malone Bugg was an American politician and a member of the United States House of Representatives for Tennessee’s 7th congressional district. Goto80 is giving us his own, a bit controversial, version of what really happened to this man.

Title:
Masters Of The Green Insects
Label:
Candy Mind Records
Catalog #:
CANDY029
Release Date:
2006/10/01


While other labels focus more and more on artist who are “excellent musicians” and “instrumental geniouses”, Candy Mind is taking another perspective of view.

So let´s set this straight: We only want “real men” (disregarding gender) on our label. To be included in the Candy Mind rooster you must be skilled in both stone cutting, welding and hunting.
We refuse to work with nerds who swarm, like insects, around computers and books. No, what we want is the strong, the brave and the fit.

When we put together this compilation we didn´t look that much on whether the music was outstanding or not (you know, even nerds can make music), instead we choose to look at the artist´s military records, mixed martial arts career and years of work in the industrial sector.

It´s with great pride we at Candy Mind can assure you listeners out there that all the music you are about to hear is composed by hard working men of blood and steel who stands up for their label and fights to the end. Failure is not in their vocabulary and they will never give up!

I’ll kick their asses instead. I’ll really do it dawg!”
And we can all see from the look on Binärpilots face that he’s really serious, as always, about the asskicking-bit…

Various Artists – Burning Chocolate {CANDY014}

Artist: Various Artists
Title:
Burning Chocolate
Label:
Candy Mind Records
Catalog #:
CANDY014
Release Date:
2005/11/03


Sometimes things are burning. It’s very hard to avoid that fact. It can be a lot of things that goes on fire: houses, people, bushes… and of course also chocolate. First it’s melting, dripping down the chimneys faster than St. Claus, and when it’s even warmer it bursts into flames…

On this compilation we have a lot of different chocolate lovers (And non-lovers. Actually, it’s presumably more non-lovers on this release, bur it’s much more catchy to write about them as chocolate lovers). Liquid Stranger is taking us to the heart of Russia, Little Kid Human is opening his mysterious locker and Psilodump is giving us a glimpse of hell. We love it! Just as much as we love burning chocolate.

…and who doesn’t love the smell of burning chocolate!

1. LIQUID STRANGER – DEN INFEKTERADE TERMINALEN
Somewhere in Russia, the big computer system Rexkov (which’s controlling everything in Russia) is getting infected. Infected by a virus that is trying to steal all Russia’s secret plans on how to transform America into a portable icebox. Red alert!

2. GISELA – THIS IS HOW IT GOES (DOROTHY´S MAGIC BAG REMIX)
So, now it’s high time for a love song, don’t you think? Gisela is giving us her beautiful voice accompanied by Dorothy’s Magic Bug’s minimalistic yet powerful production.

3. LITTLE KID HUMAN – LOCKER
What’s hidden inside the mysterious locker? … ? Let’s find out!

4. SKRUVMEJSEL – STONKA RAMBOLA
Skruvmejsel takes us to the magical land of Stonka Rambola, a country where all things can (and will!) happen. It’s a fantastic trip, but be sure not to get your feet stuck in the enchanted lamp.

5. PSILODUMP – HOTLINE TO HELL
Everyone believes that Psilodumps home is nothing but an ordinary place. But they are all wrong! Deep inside his closet, which is full of old shoes and Arabic junk, there is a small passage: the infamous hotline to hell!

6. GOTO80 – KNARK
Hatman Goto80 is showing us what happens if you use too much knark in this shady business piece of music. An introvert adventure with a dirty, psychedelic twist.

7. LITHIS – LASERBOY MEETS ROBOTGIRL
When a laser boy meets a robot girl it’s all about passion. Eh, we really can’t tell you here what they’ll be doing…but if you close your eyes and listen very carefully you will get the message anyway.

Artist: Goto80
Title:
Bravo
Label:
Candy Mind Records
Catalog #:
CANDY007
Release Date:
2005/06/11


Already a well-known name in the indie scene for his creative and chaotic meddling with old computers, Goto80 continues to bring us some of the most incredible 8-bit sonics of this world.

With the “Bravo E.P.” Goto80 is giving us a hearty and overdriven welcome in “Välkomstvisan”, an addictive “Semieasy” samba adventure and the dark, fuzzy madness of “Wombatman”.

To add some extra flavour to this release we’ve let Goto80 himself do a culinary rework on “Välkomstvisan” and our Liquid Stranger is let loose once again to take “Wombatman” to another dimension. We also give a warm welcome to mr. Hally from Japan who is doing a remarkable NES remix of “Semieasy”.

Cover design by Raul BB at http://www.entter.com

1. VÄLKOMSTVISAN
This release starts of with a warm welcoming message from Goto80 in “Välkomstvisan”, a mad and overdriven party tune with smurf vocals and an altogether happy vibe…and the typical Swedish out of control attitude.

2. SEMIEASY
Prepare for some 8-bit Semieasy samba action. Goto80 takes us to a sunny beach with Piña coladas, palm trees, booty shaking and more Piña coladas. A summer hit!

3. WOMBATMAN
After dark the Wombatman emerges from his dark and filthy cave, spreading his leathery wings before he sets of into the night. Welcome to Wombat land!

4. VÄLKOMSTVISAN (GOTO80 REWORK)
Where the original version of “Välkomstvisan” was all about wild, boozing, rhesus monkey-festivity and waking up in an unfamiliar stairwell with an immense hangover, this remix is welcoming you with a delicious 8-bit banquet. So go on and taste the electronic lobster.

5. SEMIEASY (HALLY REMIX)
Some additional Piña Coladas later Hally delivers his vivid version of “Semieasy”, full of fun and laughter. Krakel Spektakel and Simsalabim!

6. WOMBATMAN (LIQUID STRANGERS DUPLOMIX)
…and Wombatman continues to tour the world in Liquid Strangers cosy, purple duplo-mobile. Smiling as he races from country to country in this jet set journey full of twist and turns and blips and squeals.
