Latest Art Addition to the Studio - Acquired at the last Vancouver Battle of the Brush Competition!

Der Dritte Raum 2024 Remaster Vinyls have arrived! Some of the Tracks featured on LEM Sessions 48 (see below) and some Mixes before. Wellenbad was a very influential Album to me in my Progress to becoming a DJ - it is a 90s Classic.

New to the e-lemental.Music Studio -- Marantz 48V MPM-1000 Condenser Mic -- excellent Quality for under $100

To celebrate 2 years of e-lemental.Music, here's the latest, sci-fi/space techno prominent, 160 minutes long, 130 BPM DJ Mix featuring another Session of supremely-talented Artists and their Visions united under the Umbrella of e-lemental.Music. One of those Featured Artists is DER DRITTE RAUM, whose remastered version of 90's Classic "Wellenbad" I have ordered on Double Vinyl via Bandcamp! Those came with high-quality digital versions which are featured on the Mix. Since it is a numbered/Concept Mix, the Labels or Soundcloud IDs are provided. The Label of the Mix, other than (Harthouse) is (Echocord) with numerous releases that fit these Themes perfectly. Other labels with special Tracks: (When We Dip XYZ), (Roam Recordings), (DP-6) and (Kompakt) with two remixes of a Special Verbal Number played side-by-side. I will not say much more about this Mix, other than it's Highly Recommended, especially if you like Adventurous Mixes.

Upcoming Numbered/Concept DJ Sessions -- There will be more spontaneus Dated Sessions in-between these well-prepped ones

Playing "The Invincible" Game (highly recommended especially in 8K), while simultaneously reading Stanislaw Lem's Original Book in Polish and the Translated English Version. There is also a Comic Book included with the Game, which starts with an Astronaut having crash landed on an Unknown Plaet. You can also check out The Art and Science of Stanislaw Lem

e-lemental.Music Studio on Feb.18th, 2024 shot with new Canon Wide Lens (see below)

Canon EOS 90D with Canon EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 USM SLR Lens -- a very useful addition to the e-lemental Studio

Next # Numbered Sessions being worked on:
#48 -- CHAINED REACTIONS - 2x80mins(CD) Mix celebrating the Sound of Berlin's Chain Reaction Label that operated in the 90s thru to early 00s. One of my Foremost Influential Labels that as you can see - I still work with. First Mix/CD will be Chain Reaction Material *only* while the 2nd Mix/CD will contrast Chain Reaction Material with Modern Dub/Techno. The CDs came in very distinctive cases, which mirrored the sounds within and were usually available in DJ Record Stores along with Chain Reaction Vinyls. More will be written about the CR Berlin Sound as the two mixes come together in the next while, however it is to be noted that Chain Reaction was the sister label to Basic Channel -- another Influrential (to me) Berlin Label.

e-lemental.Music · Lem Sessions 2023-12-07 Simulacrum Of Dreams

Only the allegory of the Empire, perhaps, remains. Because it is with this same imperialism that present-day simulators attempt to make the real, all of the real, coincide with their models of simulation. But it is no longer a question of either maps or territories. Something has disappeared: the sovereign difference, between one and the other, that constituted the charm of abstraction. Because it is difference that constitutes the poetry of the map and the charm of the territory, the magic of the concept and the charm of the real. This imaginary of representation, which simultaneously culminates in and is engulfed by the cartographers mad project of the ideal coextensivity of map and territory, disappears in the simulation whose operation is nuclear and genetic, no longer at all specular or discursive. It is all of metaphysics that is lost. No more mirror of being and appearances, of the real and its concept. No more imaginary coextensivity: it is genetic miniaturization that is the dimension of simulation. The real is produced from miniaturized cells, matrices, and memory banks, models of control - and it can be reproduced an indefinite number of times from these. It no longer needs to be rational, because it no longer measures itself against either an ideal or negative instance. It is no longer anything but operational. In fact, it is no longer really the real, because no imaginary envelops it anymore. It is a hyperreal, produced from a radiating synthesis of combinatory models in a hyperspace without atmosphere.

Latest e-lemental.Music StudIO Setup on Nov. 26th, 2023 now featuring Studio ONE v6.5 and Ableton Live v11 running side-by-side on the main PC and three new controllers (look below). Featuring Our New Painting (far left) obtained at ''Battle of the Brush Vancouver'' Live Painting Competition.

The New Ableton Live 11 and Studio One 6.5 Station featuring New ATOM SQ MIDI Controller (see below)

New Rig for these three Vital Controllers for Live 11 and Studio One 6.5

New in the Studio - ATOM SQ MIDI Controller. While it offers limited LIVE functionality -- still trying to get the step sequencer to work there. However this unit shines when used with STUDIO ONE v6.5 and I finally have a great step sequencer there. Good News is that LIVE and Studio One can be used side by side and even allow pattern transfer between them.

New in the Studio - Akai MPD218 4x4x3 Velocity and Pressure Sensitive Pads - Excellent for Drum Programming

The Newcomer to the e-lemental.Music Studio - Novation Impulse 49 Key Controller that plays well with LIVE

Meet Our Support Team (from left) Luna (1), Polo (9), Miley (4) & Pixie (11)

The Alienware Laptop now runs Traktor Pro 3 as its Intel Quad Core performs very well at 24-48kHz AND 24-96kHz for mixing higher quality Tracks. I recently had my first DJ Gig in a while and had to lug my Desktop PC to perform. When I got home I installed Traktor on the Laptop and was pleasantly surprised that it performed very well, so it's my new DJ System.'

The AMD 6-Core Desktop PC now runs Ableton Live 11, and the CPU can handle quite a bit more than the Alienware Laptop did, so the switch is perfect. Also running Ableton on the PC I can use 3 monitors for Music Production.

The CTRL49 MIDI Workstation runs on VIP Software that can import all your VST Instrument Patches and have them available like an expensive Synth. It also comes with over 100 Arpeggiators! The AP40mk2 is a Native Ableton Live Controller with 8x5 Launch Keys and a whole lot more - indispensible.

e-lemental.Music · LEM Sessions 47 - Into The Unknown

LEM Sessions 47 - Into The Unknown -- BPM: 126 -- Length: 165min The latest entry in my numbered series is a Mix years in the making focused strictly on Music Labels. The tracks contained within do not have a given Artist, or even a Track Name but they all share the same fact - the Vinyl Label they are on is the forefront of the Release or in other words - the Music is the Focal Point without any pre-judgements that come with an Artist and Track Name. I hope I gave these releases the Respect they deserve and I hope that people who never touch Vinyl will appreciate this Mix as much as DJs who will dig this list of Labels and their Amazing Output. Beginning with my own Intro and Voice Sample we slowly descent into True Underground Music. nJoy the Journey and check out the website for larger version of Cover.

Back of the e-lemental Studio -- Lucky to have these two by my Friend Raymond Chow... These are removed for VJing Projector Space behind the DJ.

Upgraded the e-lemental Studio with the Professional-level Canon 90D @ 32MP 4K30p 1080p120p!

e-lemental.Music · Lem Sessions 2023-06-18 -- Infinite Possiblities

With a focus on melodies, Infinite Possibilities is mostly a Deep House mix trying to explore different Artists' perception of what that is to them. Pampa Records opens the Mix directly trying to challenge the boundary of what Deep House indeed is, and where it can take us beyond its normal parameters. Lots of extremely talented Artists such as Kassem Mosse, Kevin Yost, Terrence Parker, Johnny Fiasco and The Orb on this Mix take us on our Best Adventure yet. There is a lot of Vinyl Content on here and while the last two mixes explored the dancefloor, this mix is for the headphones and/or intimate listening. Hope You enjoy It, it was a lesson in patience and melodic mixing for me!

Welcome to e-lemental.Music, the realm of DJ Lem and Relena Peace.

The VJing Projector has arrived to be used with Samson Conspiracy Controller (see below) in Resolume VJ Software 6. This means all Sessions will be recorded on video. The VJ Software runs on a Microsoft Surface 6 Tablet, and it's been performing very well thus far and same with the Projector. The third photo is without the projection screen directly on the wall - we'll see what looks better on Video.'

e-lemental.Music · Lem Sessions 2022-08-28 * INNER SANCTUM
e-lemental.Music · Lem Sessions 2022-05-22
Take a trip to the e-lemental.Music INNER SANCTUM with a Journey that draws you in with its hypnotic minimalism, thorough the carefully selected deep house and all the way until the beautiful end. Dated mixes always include a good amount of new releases, and this is no exception. The mix opens with Drain Pipe's untitled track from 1998 on Tonika Recordings, a record I used to have and was able to find a 2021 release of the digitized vinyl. Still sounds as good as in the 90s, if not better and offers a perfect start to the Journey to the Inner Sanctum. So take a trip, and let me know what you think!

The Conspiracy MIDI Controller is being setup to use with Resolume 6 VJing software.

Got the Wolfgang Voigt Studio 1 Vinyls (digital) at the Kompakt Store. These are classic minimalism tracks from around 1996, same year Ritchie Hawtin was releasing his Concept 1:96 series along the same lines and quality. These make surprisingly good 3rd tracks in a 3 deck mixing setup.

Finally got a 4 channel, 16 step sequencer in what used to be my loop player the Traktor Kontrol F1 Remix Deck. I can play loops on the APC40MK2 now in Ableton Live while performing live patterns on the F1 and mixing/djing everything on the S4MK3, which can also be used to program live patterns into the F1. Just two more ways I'll be blurring the line between DJing and Live Performance.

This new Phono Preamp does not only give me more Volume from my Technics 1200mk2, but improves Sound Quality with TUBES. Beautiful!
Already use a different Tube Preamp to amplify anything that comes out of Ableton Live and the Microphone

Got my FLUANCE 760g Record Weight Stabilizer! It is as good, or better than I hoped - Highly Recommended!

Here are some older Sessions available on MixCloud:
