The guys from Turnlab send us this cool video interview with Aurex. Aurex is a minimal techno, elektro artist from Belgium. His music is influenced by artists such as Stephan Bodzin, Oliver Huntemann, Paul Kalkbrenner, … but the aurex-sound is always there. Aurex performed live sets and dj sets at different festivals and clubs such as Forest Festival, Crammerock, Styletraveller XL, Eargasm and the Bootleg club in Rotterdam. When playing live, aurex is using hardware drumcomputers, samplers and synths. This leaves plenty of room for improvisation and interaction with the crowd so no aurex set sounds the same. Expect tight beats, dark sounds and a great vibe.

Block is a compact and programmable MIDI control surface designed for interactive audio performance. Built on the same bi-directional and adaptable platform as the Ohm64, Block provides a powerful interface for creating and interacting with sound in a small easy-to-transport body.

The Limited Edition Block Diablo is only available while supplies last. This version has a mahogany body, black faceplate, and red LED’s.
