VURT.LIVE with Korridor (2hours Live Set) [Northern Electronics, Hypnus Records / Stockholm, Sweden]

Korridor (Northern Electronics, Hypnus Records / Stockholm, Sweden )

The word corridor – or Korridor in Swedish – has different meanings in different contexts but it is always associated with performing a passage of some sort. It could just be a narrow hallway leading from one room from another, but even in that seemingly mundane form there’s some inherent mystique. A corridor is a peculiar room that’s not really a room at all, because a corridor is always designed to take you somewhere else. The prominent philosopher and mystic Emanuel Swedenborg (1688 – 1722) described “The Swedenborg Room” as a sort of (non)place where the spirits of the dead would pass through on their way to the afterlife; a corridor between life and death in which the dweller briefly would belong to both worlds, but never to the corridor itself.

Fabian Kempe aka Korridor is in the business of creating passages – both for himself and those who come in contact with his music. With highly acclaimed releases on Hypnus Records, Nordanvind and Northern Electronics over the last few years, Korridor has swiftly become a household name in the European electronic music scene. However, Fabian Kempe is by no means a novice. He has been active within the music scene as a producer under various monikers for over 12 years. The paths have been winding but they all lead up to the defined philosophy of Korridor.

The Korridor project started off as an exploration of minimalistic structures but as that rabbit hole started to widen new textures appeared, often in the form of polyrhythms. When these shifting and unpredictable bits and pieces of rhythmical elements began to harmonize with each other, the foundation for Korridor was established. Connecting seemingly conflicting dots on a music sheet and connecting seemingly divided bodies on a dance floor are two sides of the same type of magic. A form of shamanism, more precisely – a “technique of religious ecstasy”, to quote the famed historian of religion, Mircea Eliade. With his drum, the Shaman creates rhythms that open corridors to the spirit world. He brings people together as a tribe, creates altered states of consciousness and induces waves of ecstasy and yearning that affect masses of moving bodies simultaneously. Anyone who has ever lost him or herself on a Korridor dance floor can testify that Fabian Kempe keeps this tradition very much alive. A modern polyrhythmic Shaman that combines darkness with light, mathematical structures with melancholic harmonies and spiritual black holes with the brightest states of awareness.

With his unmistakable trance-inducing sound, Korridor has hypnotized clubbers and electronic music aficionados all over Europe. Musical visits to North America has been made and an Asian tour is in the works. In other words, Fabian Kempe keeps creating passages in which he can move his music forward, creatively as well as geographically. Where these passages will take him in the end, nobody knows. And who is to say that Korridor is the last corridor? Fabian Kempe has been here a long time, but he’s just getting started.

Phoenix Park Ski resort

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Phoenix Park is perhaps one of the more well-known resorts in Korea as it was the host hill for the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics and skiing and snowboarding. Located in Pyeongchang, Gwangwon province, Phoenix boasts with the title of best freestyle hill in Korea.

Even though Korean mountains might be smaller than their European and American counterparts, they are absolutely no less fun. The quality of the snow at Phoneix is some of the best in Korea due to higher snowfall records, so riders can rest assured that it will be quality riding on soft cushy snow, throughout the entire winter season. The Phoenix team did an excellent job keeping the snow in pristine riding condition during the Olympics. Actually 12 out of the 22 slopes are of international standard.

The Park has both a gondola 8 chairlifts that all depart from the base area. Five chairs go up all or part way to the peak which is names Mount Blanc, the available gondola also goes up all the way to the peak. The remaining thee chairs go up to the smaller peak, Bulaemaru, on the side of the mountain.

The new Seoul – Gangneung route can get you there in 90 minutes on the high speed train and then a short 25 minute bus ride from the station to the resort. A train ticket will cost you about 20,000 won or so. Alternatively one can take a bus from Samseong or Jamsil straight to the resort and it takes about 2 hours.
 

Vivaldi Park - DAEMYUNG RESORT

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Vivaldi’s state of the art facilities and ease of access makes it understandable why it is the most visited resort in Korea, 8 years in a row! Daemyung Resort Vivaldi Park is located in neighboring Gangwon-do province, right across the border line so do not fret, still only a 60 minute trip. Vivaldi can host up to 20,000 visitors so you know they run a smooth operation.
Vivaldi boasts one of the trendiest resorts in Korea and that makes it quite the hotspot amongst the younger crowds, that and its close proximity to Seoul. Vivaldi is equipped with the biggest resort in the country making it an easy choice destination for many tourists.
As mentioned earlier, Vivaldi is high-tech, it has the first express 8-seater chair lift in Asia and what makes it even better is that is open until 5am. So for those hip night owls who love to shred the night time gnar, you know where to go.
Vivaldi offers 12 slopes with 10 lifts at varying times and prices. So it’s pretty simple to select something that suits your needs. Free shuttle buses that are specifically arranged for tourists go straight to the resort. These buses depart from various locations in Seoul and they also return to the same places they departed from.
Vivaldi offers all varieties of slopes, from beginner to advanced, making it a good destination for groups with mixed levels.
Due to the high volume capacity this place can get packed so it’s better to go on the weekdays or at night. Otherwise be prepared to wait in 30min -1hour lines.
 

Jisan Ski resort

3 Ski Resorts near Seoul
Situated in Icheon, Jisan resort is definitely a top choice amongst the local ski resorts due to its close proximity to Seoul. Just an hour and a half away, Jisan resort is perfect for day trips. So if you’re pressed for time, Jisan will definitely satisfy your snow craving. For those that have the luxury of time the resort offers a multitude of beautiful condos.
Jisan might not be renowned for its natural snow due to its warmer geographical location, but one would hardly notice as the artificial snow and snow grooming at the resort is top notch. Jisan offers 7-8 beginner to intermediate slopes, making it the perfect destination for a family outing regardless of ski proficiency. The ski resort usually gets packed on the weekend so it might be better to go during the weekdays. Advanced riders might consider one of our other resorts as they might find these slopes a bit too easy.
For those who are not so interested in skiing/snowboarding you can always try the snow-sledding which is heaps of fun. If you get tired or hungry, a cafeteria is located at the base of the slopes. Sit outside and enjoy some snacks while taking in the breathtaking scenery.
Free shuttle buses operate from various destinations in order to provide convenient access so don’t worry about renting a car.  How to get there:
Express Bus at Seoul Nambu Express Bus Terminal OR Dongseoul Express Bus Terminal → Icheon IntercityBus Terminal → Local bus No. 12 → Jisan Mart Entrance → Jisan Ski Resort
