Press Release

Frequent readers of zweikommasieben will know that the creative processes highlighted in the magazine are an eclectic gathering of influences that result in varied creative practices. But what might be the common denominator connecting all the dots in this plurality? For the new issue, zweikommasieben makes the case for the discursive potential of personal experiences.

Once the personal is taken seriously, anecdotes provide major insights into an artist’s practice. A portrait on producer Malibu taps into memories of popular culture and traces musical experiences from her childhood to highlight the dedication she brings towards composing melodies and using samples. In their essay, the duo Space Afrika assembles recollections of their daily lives in north-west England to frame their artistic output over the years. Highlighting subjective perspectives also allows for the differentiation of what might appear similar at first. Both the collaboration of Andreas Bülhoff and Marc Matter featured in “Soundtexte” and the interview with Tygapaw refer to the use of poetry. The former condense language to its most basic units and present them as rhythmic building blocks for DJs. Taking a different approach, Tygapaw asked a poet to be the narrator of their album, expanding the tracks by embedding an additional layer of meaning.

Quotes (previous editions):
Where To Now? – “zweikommasieben is the best mag out” abcdinamo – “a beautifully designed must read on electronic music” Thomas Lennon – “zweikommasieben is automatic purchase every issue” Tom Mouna – “(…) probably the best magazine for anyone interested in the key figures in contemporary electronic music” &mags – “A journey of discovery through contemporary music” (referring to #22) A s h (Do Hits, Taiwan Beats) – “Underground community’s DIY spirit never fails.” (referring to #21) Magculture – “From its 2011 beginnings, the magazine has had an inherent confidence. It’s a magazine that takes good design and rigorous journalism just as seriously as the music. The interviews themselves are pacy and interesting, the antithesis of basic promotional content.” (reviewing #20) Rob Booth (Houndstooth, Electronic Explorations) – “Another essential magazine…” (referring to #19) Rewind Forward –“Now in its 18th edition, [zweikommasieben] is a testament to this rather solid DIY venture from a group of friends (…). Each ‘zine packs a masterclass in design—each one has a different look and feel—whether it’s a curious mix of page sizings, colour photos offset on newsprint, foil sleeves etc etc— they’re always a pleasure to unfold…” Actress (Ninja Tune, Werk Discs) – “New edition looks great!” (referring to #17)
