Vim vs. Awful Dodgy – Rehash {no_13}

Artist: Vim vs. Awful Dodgy
Title:
Rehash
Label:
 No’Mo’
Catalog #:
no_13
Release Date:
2000/03/27


*EXCLUSIVE* – tragic news, my non-magical friends. I have word from the dastardly wretches at no’mo’ that they’ve kidnapped Monotonik’s friendly and docile Vim! and subjected him to Chas ‘n Dave records until he remixes a popular cheesy garage record. The result, regurgitated at me? Vim vs. Awful Dodgy – ‘Rehash’ (1380k). Hear the original ici. Poor old Vim!, eh? No’Mo’ release #13 shows they continue to be harsh taskmasters.. damn them!


Tracklist:
01 – Rehash


Vim! – Fit At The Front {mtk018}

Artist: Vim!
Title:
Fit At The Front
Label:
Monotonik
Catalog #:
mtk018
Release Date:
2000/03/16


And the Monotonik experience couldn’t be complete without a new release from the English madprofessor, and, we contend, one of the true individuals behind Monotonik’s ‘quality’, Vim!.

“Fit At The Front” reminds us a tiny bit of the AFX remix of Baby Ford’s “Normal” in the way it keeps the braindance going, but ducks and dives, spins and parries, in that uniquely screwed Vim!-style way. The melodies are weird as hell, the drums are boom bap boom in unexpected flurries, and it all adds up to a damn good time for your mp3 player.

Season’s greetings from the Monotonik klan come in the form of this wonderful duo from Vim!, labelstar and uniquely.. unique artist.

Vim! – Whirlwind Snooker {mtw007}

Artist: Vim!
Title:
Whirlwind Snooker
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
mtw007
Release Date:
1999/05/02


Time for Vim!’s second mp3 release, and it’s a stand-out piece of totally original ‘electronic music’, poised anywhere between breakbeat, idm, and triphop. Definitions really don’t make sense in this case – let’s just say this wouldn’t be out of place on Rephlex or Skam. Watch the trademark Follin-esque oblique Vim! chords too.. mm, retrocreamygoodness..

Vim! – Handwash {REL#161}

Artist: Vim!
Title:
Handwash
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
REL#161
Release Date:
1999/02/17


words really don’t do this one much justice. it’s borderline insane, it’s somewhere between the drill, the bass, the ambient, and the headfunk.. it’s got those trademark weird-as-hell arpeggios in there, and it’s just brilliance. then again, i’m sure we’re biased? nonetheless, ridiculously good. hopefully if you’re reading this you have it already. if not, go get it, for gawd’s sake. heh, over and out.. oh, it’s neglected because we didn’t release it for a year or more, btw. more fool us 🙂

Vim! – Ears Fear {mtw001}

Artist: Vim!
Title:
Ears Fear
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
mtw001
Release Date:
1998/11/11


the very first in the series of mp3 releases from mono211, and we figured we’d start with one that was a must-download.

so, vim! gives it a go with a _really_ twisted piece of dark jungle, in his own inimitable style. with influences from ed rush to the digital hardcore crew. you’ll only hear this on mp3, and you’ll only get it from mono211, it’s not just a conversion of a 500k XM, it’s worth it.. have we sold you yet? 🙂

Vim! – Visual Research {rel#149}

Artist: Vim!
Title:
Visual Research
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
rel#149
Release Date:
1998/09/23


Long-awaited and finally here+now, one of Vim’s best tracks from earlier this year gets a full release. one of the man himself’s favourite tracks, it seems almost too elegant to be digital, don’t you think? playing with the idiom, he twists it round our finger and spits out the drums again, all filtered, spinning round and round.. hmm, sometimes we feel guilty we don’t make people pay for this kinda thing 😉

Vim!+Zyad – Tea Diddums (Pineapple Remix) {rel#25}

Artist: Vim!+Zyad
Title:
Tea Diddums (Pineapple Remix)
Label:
Monotonik
Catalog #:
rel#25
Release Date:
1998/08/04


Mm, here’s another of Zyad’s prized remixes of Vim!, and another piece of smart witty techno. It has a clock-ticking monotone to it that really begins to appeal after a while, don’t you think? Then there’s some sorta jazz drumming comes in a little later, and it’s all agreeably offbeat. In a sorta onside way. Thanks to both of the lads – they done great.

The boy can’t help it, he just can’t help it. Apologies from us to Vim! and his fans for not getting these songs out very fast at all – they were tracked much earlier this year. But at least at least they’re out, and we guess you should really open wide and say ‘aaahh’. Or at least ‘ah?’ 🙂 Style, grace, Rita Hayworth, all that nice stuff, Vim! has it in spades. So if you’ve got a heart, let’s club together and buy him enough diamonds to jack it all in and live on the Gold Coast forever. Ohdear, we appear to have lost it. In a nice way, of course. Viva Vim!

Title:
More Tea EP
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
rel#136
Release Date:
1998/05/22


Well, after the controversialness that was the last Mono211 release by Taro, here comes something that’s guaranteed to soothe damaged nerves. As any fule kno, groove is in the heart, and Meester Vim! has it up to his eyeballs. Well, eyeball sockets – he donated his eyes to medical research some time ago and nowadays composes using his long antennae that he’s grown from his gaping eye sockets. He makes strange clicking noises too, and if you listen carefully, the noise that sounds a little like cicadas in the background of these tracks is Vim! rubbing his fangs together and salivating like a little Pavlov’s dog. So now you know.
