supported by Musicboard Berlin and Serato
We are a DJ collective with love for music and film – that’s why we are bringing both together and finally into the clubs. Clubvideos are a new kind of visuals which every DJ can play or mix by him/herself.
During a 3-day workshop you are going to learn how to record and produce clubvideos, using your own track as a bais, cutting the footage and playing it at the clubs.
From the 13th until the 15th of October 2017 the BLAENK MINDS studio at Spittelmarkt will be the location of the workshop.
In collaboration with Musicboard Berlin, SERATO we will give you the Know-How all around playing your tracks and clubvideos with the Serato software live in the clubs. Barbara Klein (Native Instruments) will support us with her visual art skills.
This workshop is also directed (especially) to people who are still underrepresented in the music industry (WOC, QTPOC, female identifying, artists with handicaps, artists with migratory background).
Register now with your track till the 10th of October and get the chance:
· for a free 3-day workshop (there will be a fee of 20€ for food & beverages)
· of an exclusive clubvideo for your own track which you can release afterwards
· to learn along with Barbara Klein (Native Instruments) & BLAENK MINDS how to shoot and cut a clubvideo
· to learn along with SERATO how to play video live
· to connect with new people from the film and music industry
· to play on the 19th of October at the OHM

We are very happy to have Kaiserdisco back on Tronic for another EP. This time the duo collaborated with our good friend Karotte. Together they delivered two storming techno tracks. We also have a vinyl only remix from Victor Ruiz. This is the first release from Karotte in over 6 years so hope you enjoy it!
„Workshop“ sounds a bit dull for what just happened in Thailand. We are still mind-blown. The first clubvideos from this workshop are going to be released soon. Once they are out, go check the collaborations on Blaenks. All of them are soon to be mixed by BLÆNK MINDS in a club near you! Oh and the next workshop is going to happen in Berlin!!
METAMORPHOSIS is the transformation of a state. The woman is more than her outer appearance, the role she incarnates. She struggles for being who she is, understanding her inner self and yield it to the outside. A constant process of change.
Blaenk Minds is a DJ team. For each track the duo plays they produce a video. Each video is a collaboration of different artists.
Martin Eyerer returns to Rejected to fly solo and follow up his popular 2015 outing The Metro with two fresh productions, Run Stop and Troja. The lead track Run Stop with its commanding vocal is a hypnotic tech tool with its mesmeric and metronomic beats and shadowy synth chords enticing the listener.
With this one we let ourselves go a bit into our dark sides. The idea was to consider „lust“ as a sculpture and slowly carve it out of the flesh we put in front of the camera. The story that was supposed to carry this: Tina Dubrovsky is a photographer with a fetishy new age style. The plan was that his video is a documentary of one or two of her shootings. Now after we watch the video ourselves, we have to admit that this idea does not really jump at you… still fun to play it in clubs.
This video we also recorded actually a very long wile ago. Not sure if it was this year actually. Where is my brains. Anyway – For the shooting we came together with Mica and Leni from the fashion label Twisted Talents and the designer Nico Sutor. Mica and Leni brought in crazy skater girl Kim Wibbelt and she again brought in her skater gang Jonathan Meissner, Kilian Kammerer, Robin Schulz and Serkan Schlunke. We recorded slow motions of whatever madness they gave us. Jumps, grinds, curves, flips… and we gave it a smooth post production treatment. The video works with repetition and effects just like a track does. The thinking of a music producer regarding instruments, sounds and arrangements is directly translated to video.
Now the thing is, that the files where laying around and we had them edited to some track, we where experimenting on in the studio. The track evolved over time and eventually we found a label to release it: Areal Records. So track and video finally came together. We gave the stems to Marco Resmann and Areals very own Metope and asked them for a remix. Now while the two audio druids worked their magic, we gave our video to a video wizard Sam Pauwels. Not sure if i can call it „his interpretation“ or just a „weird fuckup“ – its great, watch it! Both remixes came out great. We surely prefer playing them over the original. The video remix for metope is yet to be done. Watch out. Oh and the audio u can buy on Beatport or your fav record store.
We had a friend helping us over the entire course of the shooting. Lucas – he passed away earlier this year. May he dance in the heavens 🙂
