Chain D.L.K. celebrates

 

20 YEARS

of existence!!!

Established in 1994, Chain D.L.K. is one of the longest-running and biggest online music communities for electronic, industrial, ambient, dark, experimental and new music. Daily updated news, reviews, interviews and community message boards to stay up to date on what’s going on…


Where did the Community Forum go?
We noticed that the Community Forums were not being used for much more than announcements and some spam. Since we have a NEWS section for announcements and people were unfortunately not engaging in conversations we decided to put the Forums on hold. If you miss the Forums and you would like to see them back please let us know! Thank you!


We are still looking for WRITERS…

Chain D.L.K. is looking for RELIABLE AND ENTHUSIASTIC WRITERS interested in writing reviews and possibly doing interviews.
Chain D.L.K. is a non-for-profit entity so this position is not paid, however you will receive lots of CDs that you can keep or re-sell.
We need people who LOVE MUSIC and are PASSIONATE about music and who enjoy writing about it.
Contact Marc Urselli form the Contact Page if you are interested.
Thank you

Interviews
Lawrence English

Lawrence English

We had a chat with the brilliant and wise producer and Room40 label owner Lawrence English shortly after listening to the stunning release “Wilderness Of Mirrors”, his latest album after the widely appreciated one inspired by J.A.Baker’s novel “The Peregrine”, which came out in 2011. This album also keeps drawing inspiration from literature as its title is a phrase from […]

Rutger Zuydervelt aka Machinefabriek

Rutger Zuydervelt aka Machinefabriek

Rutger Zuydervelt doesn’t really need any introduction: if the family name of this Dutch prolific (he’s so prolific that I cannot rule out the possibility that he had other releases between the moment he answered our questions and when we’ve put them online!) and protean sound artist and graphic designer might maybe sound unfamiliar to some of you, […]

Reinhold Friedl

Reinhold Friedl

The first public performance of the reinterpretation of Lou Reed’s “Metal Music Machine” by Zeitkratzer, the supergroup that Reinold Friedl formed in 1997, was critically acclaimed. Almost ten years later, the four 16-minute parts have been joined together into one release by Karlrecords, which put mastering and mixing in the wise hands of Rashad Becker. […]

Cris X

Cris X

We had a chat with Cristiano Luciani, aka Cris X, an Italian noise/sound and visual artist who gained praise for his astonishing exhibitions that have been featured all over the world, and his collaborations with big names in the electronic/noise scene such as Merzbow, Maurizio Bianchi, Eugene Chadbourne, Gene Coleman, Ken Ueno, Sonic Pleasure, IOIOI […]

Rudolf Eb.er

Rudolf Eb.er

“Brainnectar”, the new release by Swiss sound-artist and occultist Rudolf Eb.er aka Runzelstirm & Gurgelstock, who combines outsider art and action with extreme sonic arts, cut-up de/compositions and  catharsis, is almost concomitant  with the birth of Schimpfluch Associates, the label born from the ashes of the collective that Rudolf initially founded in 1987, which grouped together a […]

Hildur Guðnadóttir

Hildur Guðnadóttir

On her astonishing new release “Saman” (highly recommended!) on Touch  she combines rich cello tones and sylph-like vocals as if she wanted to bridge light and darkness in the listening experience that she provides to even the most fussy of listeners. Just after the announcement of such release we had a chat with brilliant Icelandic cellist […]
