Marching Through Police Lines: Breaking Borders (Dispatch 3)

As migrants and refugees continue to flow into Europe, Röszke Camp in Hungary just across the border from Serbia has become a pivotal point in the journey for thousands. People are desperate to avoid Hungarian officials for fear of being registered in the country and possibly returned there at a later date.

With the number of frustrated and exhausted refugees increasing, protests and breakouts are becoming more frequent at Röszke Camp. Many fear that these actions, often caused by misinformation and confusion, will lead to punishment by the Hungarian police, which only increases the desperation felt by those entering the country.

VICE News joined hundreds of migrants and refugees as they attempted to march through police lines and continue on their journey to Western Europe.

Russian Pilots of the Congo

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

The Democratic Republic of Congo is one of the most dangerous countries in the world. It covers an area the size of Western Europe, but has only 1,250 miles of paved road. Naturally, one of the only ways to travel from place to place or to transport goods across the country is by air. Many of the most daring and dangerous pilots in the DRC are Russian. VICE News travels to Goma to meet these Russian expats, and learns what it’s like to be a pilot in a country where, in the sky, almost anything goes.

Landscapers – Arachnoise

Are there still any talented D&B producers in Western Europe ? For those who would need a proof — and for all the other listeners ! — Mindtech HQ immediately advise the listening of ‘Superpunk’ EP, from the brilliant Landscapers.
This EP is the outcome of a long term job, which let him enough time to take care over the building of every single tune, so that each element can find its place. The result: 4 complementary pieces, for a neuro-explosive ‘Superpunk’ EP, to be enjoyed in your iPod or on the dancefloor !

The very singularity of Landscapers’ work, is the strong care he provides to the melodies, perfectly fitting the rhythm section of every of his tracks. In ‘Arachnoise’, first: « I love to put an orchestral touch on my tracks, it links real instruments with electronic elements and it brings a curious feel to the song. ‘Arachnoise’ is a good exemple. In ‘Battle AXE’, I particularly enjoyed using the Alto violin! »

‘Superpunk’ gives all its meaning back to the funk side of neuro. ‘Superpunk’ is super funk, the electronic breath along ! « I aimed to build unexpected drops and surprising melodies. Recorded and over-sampled slap bass sound. »

The ethereal electro sound of ‘So Magical’ isn’t hiding the broken dynamic of the tune for a very long time : « It is one of my hardest project so far. I remember having switched from one to another software only because the mixdown sounded bad! Still, ‘So Magical’ is a very personal tune… »

You’ve now certainly understood that ‘Superpunk’ EP is already a must-have of your forthcoming playlists !
