AstroBear comes from a little planet in the neighborhood of Dubb, which is a bright star on the back of the Great Bear. His love of Space Honey has taken him all over the Milky Way. Recently, he even visited Earth, and left us this little EP with his favorite space travel music.
In this post we present the first results of a new Dubbhism research program. We're looking at the astrological influence of the planets in the birth charts of musicians. For our research, we don't use regular astrology (zodiac signs, houses etc.). Dubbhism astrology is mostly about the 'basics' and a touch of the Golden Ratio.
Everybody needs multiples. You can never have enough multiples. The modular industry understands this; it designs and produces new multiples every year.

Next Xen is a new compilation out on Split-Notes, our favorite xenharmonic label. The album features ~ among many others ~ Jacky Ligon (killer track) and Sevish (another scorcher), who have also collaborated with us on several Dubbhism releases. Also fine tracks by Brendan Byrnes, Steve Mueske, Carlo Serafini and Elaine Walker.

While it's virtually impossible to assemble a 'fair trade' PC, the mobile phone business is now ready for an honesty-and-solidarity-upgrade. FairPhone 2 is "ethical, open and built to last". The design philosophy is aimed squarely against planned obsolescence, illegal mining and exploitation of factory workers to the point of suicide.Crucial!
In the cases of Google and Facebook, their intimate relation with the military-industrial complex isn't obvious for average users, but the Big Brother-features of Windows 10 are so in-your-face they even scare your mamma. Altho it's hard to predict where this will end, one thing is clear: Linux, the open alternative, is ready to take over.
