labios trémulos


Artist : Staccato Du Mal 

Label : SDM 

labios trémulos / LP+7"

Release after release, each new soundtrack is even better than the previous one. Whole of the new tracks from this album count amongst his most minimalist, analogue dark and emotional works. Side 1 and most of Side 2 + the 7" are absolutely stellar. A must-have for any electronic music enthusiasts who like to have some Tangerine Dream / Lustmord / John Carpenter and a bit of reproduction era Human League in their collection. The track "One Night" the only piece with vocals on the release sounds like an un-credited guest appearance by Sean McBride (Martial Canterel). Real masterpiece of modern futurism !!



Artist : Circa Tapes 

Label : DKA Records 

kolektique / LP

DKA Records is excited to present the 2nd LP from Chicago's Circa Tapes, 'Kolektique'. The solo project of Kill Memory Crash's Adam Killing, Circa Tapes explores a minimal and subliminal form of songwriting and production, blending influences from a slew of genres including post-punk, techno, EBM/industrial, and italo to create lush, driving palettes for his bleak yet catchy songs. These 10 tracks run through a wide array of moods, tempos, and themes, yet when presented together feel completely unified due to the unique sensibilities of their creator. Edition of 350 copies with printed jackets and insert !

the red rope ep


Artist : Profligate 

Label : DKA Records 

the red rope ep / 12"

The 'Red Rope ep' makes it plain that Profligate (aka Noah Anthony), is one hell of a craftsman. It consists of 3 diligently constructed tracks that, in addition to boasting sweeping arrangements and complexly layered grooves, employ the essential components of synth-pop and EBM in ways that are fresh yet familiar. He's clearly a child of the recombinant age, who has clinical knowledge of how his influences are put together and, by extension, can be taken apart and reassembled. But this doesn't mean his music is cold and studied. Quite the opposite: it's exceptionally personal. On "From All Sides" and "Annihilated" Anthony's narcotized drawl veers between desperation and resignation, as clipped kicks, knotted static and phantom chords represent all the struggles and issues that so clearly vex him. Halfway through the latter, he moans 'I don't hear you at all' before his voice dissolves into a whirring loop of 'alls'. It's one of those definitive industrial moments when alienation actually sounds erotic. The heavy mood relents oh so slightly on nine-minute track "The Red Rope Again", which takes up the whole of side B. Yet that's only because Anthony, slipping into velvety echo, has submitted fully to the grinding propulsion that surrounds him. Limited to 500 copies with inserts..



Artist : Dylan Ettinger / Goldendust 

Label : DKA Records 

split / 7"

As an extension of DKA, Atlanta's sole proprietors of coldwave, goth, and left-field dance music, DKA Records has established a firm foothold in the ranks of DiY labels both within the city and beyond. This 7" bears heavy aesthetic resemblance to classic goth and post punk singles and tapes, with stark black-and-white imagery and xeroxed inserts creating a minimalist vibe with an utilitarian approach. The single pits 2 breakouts of the underground synth scene together for a split of forward-thinking, avant-garde pop, with Bloomington, IN's Dylan Ettinger and Iowa City, IA's Goldendust. Ettinger's offering, "The Pale Mare", is a tune that continues his recent retreat into shadowed, back-lit pop, following the starkly beautiful 'Lifetime Of Romance' LP and the gritty, haunted auras of the 'Crucify Your Love' ep. The slow and heavy rhythm is hypnotically foreboding, pounding out its pace with a towering posture. The synth chords reign in like a torrent of static, bearing as much weight on the scene as the deranged and unassuming melody. Ettinger's vocals resemble a deepened, delayed, and distorted version of Robert Smith's proto-goth howls, suggesting Pornography's most alienated moments. The B-side comes courtesy of frantically romantic post-punk duo Goldendust. "Truth", a near 7-minute breakup song that serenely maxes out the 7"s duration limit, perfects witching hour synth-pop with brisk beauty. The softly lysergic guitar drifts along, carrying an emotive and warped tide of sound. The melody and slow moving rhythms bring an air of nostalgia, ditching any real chorus for a cycle of verse after verse of melancholic pop. Goldendust strays from the song's direct course only twice to emphasize the sullen statement with brief interludes of austere meddling. Must-Have!



Artist : X-Quadrat 

Label : Die Blinden Records 

untitled / 12"

The 80's are back. We are not talking about cool radio stations broadcasting old Spandau Ballet ballads (although it can be fun as well), but passionate enthusiasts looking for lost gems in the dark underground of the past. You find such people everywhere, in Belgium too. Onderstroom Records and Walhalla Records are the best-known examples. Die Blinden Records, an initiative of the organisator of the Belgian minimal festival Waveteef, is a new label with the same objectives. So far, label boss Mat Zwart released both Deathly Quiet! and the sublime debut LP by Luminance. Here is now an old release of a German quartet that was founded in 1982. People pay craziest prices for the X-Quadrat record on the Internet (up to 300€ !!). The band is hardly known and has only one release, but this is the sound that 80's freaks like to hear! This maxi contains 4 songs. "Kauf Dir Die Freiheit" is pure Neue Deutsche Welle. Think of what Malaria! or Fehlfarben did and you are on the right path. Indeed, such tracks were made in large amounts in Germany during the 80's. We can not get enough of it. The most interesting song is "Immer Und Ewig": dark minimal with doomy keyboards and a chorus with words like 'Verloren in die Dunkelheit', what more do you want? "Der Digitaltanz" has a very different style. The EBM beats remind us of DAF. And if that is not so, Die Gedanken sind frei ! "Information" is NDW with a tasty punk beat. We already said it before... this is material for 80's fans who really know what the period was about! Limited to 300 copies on colored vinyl !

Label : Private Records 

computered love / 2x12"

love in space


Artist : Rene Riche & Her Cosmic Band 

Label : Private Records 

love in space / LP

African disco album from 1978. No original copies available anywhere for sale. 'Love In Space' is a soul disco tune that's smashing every 70's jam, reminding a bit of Pink Floyds "The Great Gig In The Sky" and scoring with an endless break. The great "Galactic Interlude" and the funky deep "Beyond The Sun" are an unique mix between African soul and cosmic disco beats. Obviously a totally unique sound and a one of a kind album were talended female soul singers meeting intergalactic disco beats. Extremely scarce to impossible to find original LP production by Mike Pilot who also produced the all time cosmic classic from Blush "Lift Off" during the same year (1978). Nobody less than Spanish cult producer Josep Llobell remastered the original master tapes for the new Private Records release. Including large foldout poster. Limited to 250 copies !

let's go into space IV / LP

Fantastic compilation featuring: Angela Dean's paralyzing space disco track "World X" is a soundtrack production by Detto Mariano ('Exterminators Of The Year 3000') from 1979. It became a big underground to overground disco hit back in the days. Rendez Vous "My Blue Bird" from 1978, it took 18 months until the holder on the rights were found. The music was produced by Angelo Crisci who won some years after the production of "My Blue Bird" the Eurovision song contest for Belgium with his production Sandra Kim "J'Aime La Vie" in 1986. Love Spirit "Burn The Witch" composer Giorgio Sgarbi unfortunately already passed away. Both the producer of the song and ex manager of WPL records spoke only in the highest tones of him and would like to bring him with his song "Burn The Witch" on LGIS4 back to the mind of music fans. A small memorial for an artist from one of the most important music circles of Germany (Frank Farian, Boney M producer crew). The Primates are nobody less than 70's/80's French superstar Saint Preux. The instrumental version of "King Kong" showing one more time his psychedelic side. Schaltkreis Wassermann contributing the previously unrelased epic downtempo synth track "Space Symphony". Dieter Bührig (aka Disco Connection) wrote the magical track "Butterfly Dance". One of the most exciting techno prototypes from the 70's we heard so far. He doesn't produce any more music but works as a writer nowaydays. Pans People's "Club Lido" is an early prodcution by Steve Coe & Bob Mitchell who some years later became very famous as producers of superstar Laura Branigan. And last but not least Carl Barok "Blue Nights In Granada" is the 1st record of Dieter Kolb who later was part of the cosmic cult band Supersempfft from Frankfurt.

Review to come..!



Artist : N.O.I.A. 

Label : J.A.M. Traxx 

a.i.o.n. / LP

'A.I.O.N.', in the tradition of Greek cosmology, was the personification of Time with the more famous Kronos corresponding to Saturn Latin. Revered as 'Lord Of Light', Aeon (AION) represented eternity, infinite time, as well as the succession of eras. Just time talking this new vinyl published by J.A.M. Traxx: somehow it shows how the same song, born in a given context in time and space (a marginal Italy of the late 70's sets in a still immature europe) can be re-interpreted 30 years later with a new spirit, remaining in part what it was originally, but also becoming another completely new thing (that didn't exist before)... The statue of the boxer from the Roman stadium of the marbles, pictured on the cover, is just Aion represented as an athlete who fights between light and shadow, past and future, divided in half just like in the inner label of this precious vinyl, in sharp contrasts and games of symmetries used in the graphics. Special edition on white vinyl limited to 200 copies and containing 4 reworkes original N.O.I.A.'s tracks from 1980 and 4 exlusive remixes !!



Artist : Der Zyklus 

Label : WeMe Records 

renormalon / LP

Gerald Donald is back under the Der Zyklus alias for more futurist darkside electro experiments: his signature sound. Where the project's sound may have been more varied on previous releases, the 'Renormalon' LP goes more for the downbeat and sometimes completely beatless and it's really quite brilliant because of it. We really liked the intergalactic ambience of "Interference Pattern" (which would have sounded great on the Event Horizon soundtrack), the dramatic and isolated arpeggiation of "Photopolymer" (beautifully haunting!) and the evil wall of sound delay of "Optical Distortion" which reaches near psychedelic moments and capturing that ghost in the machine like only Donald can. Limited edition on clear vinyl..

ordinary life machines


Artist : Regressverbot 

Label : Fabrika Records 

ordinary life machines / LP

Regressverbot emerge from the current Greek underground scene. Though they exist since 2012 they already reached a cult status among lovers of the synthesized sound and their debut LP has been long awaited. Formed in Thessaloniki in 2012 by Pantelis Theodoridis (analog synths, drum machines), Agni Zaxari (vocals) and Christos Mavridis (vocals) they released their music in the internet and soon gained a big fan base with brilliant tracks as "Homage To Miltos Sachtouris", where the voice looping of the famous Greek poet 'nails our heart'. Their sound is a new-wave, minimal-synth, post-punk collage, in which you hear the influence of the early experimental Diy music of the 80's. A brilliant lyrical album, a path of self-discovery, music to dance to under the spell of the haunting voice of Agni, the intensity of Christos and the powerful and still romantic soundscapes of Pantelis. From 2013-2015 they performed live in self-organised theaters, social centers and festivals. In this album you will find a collection of songs from the 1st period of the band, songs we all loved and danced to, but also unreleased tracks. Limited to 500 copies and including download code. Tip !!



Artist : Kaelan Mikla 

Label : Fabrika Records 

untitled / LP

Kælan Mikla is a 3-piece punk/no-wave band from Reykjavík slowly getting darker and deeper with new waves and more instruments. The band consists of 3 girls who perform their own poetry and have been described as an avant-garde, fresh breeze into the Icelandic music scene in the past 2 years. The band was formed after winning 1st place in a poetry slam held by the city library in january 2013. They have since then played multiple festivals as well as touring Europe. Kælan Mikla are known for their dark melancholic sound, most of the songs consisting only of heavy bass, drums and screams with some softer, melodic synth parts in-between. The band lyrics focus on inner confusion and their intimidating stage performance, often including performance art of some sort, is bound to leave the crowd in a melancholic trance. 'This trio has moved from being a post-punk outfit of bass, drums and vocals into bold new territory. Chilling, neurotic synth loops paired with ass-end bass and some positively haunting vocals, their sound has evolved into something darker, stronger, capable of taking us from the everyday world into the gauzy barrier between us and our nightmares. Like watching a forgotten reel of film shot at a haunted house, you come away from seeing them live wondering if it's really over, as you can still feel icy fingers reaching towards you. A 1st taste of their brilliant soundscapes , the title "Kalt". Limited to 500 copies and including download link..

nella gloria


Artist : Bohemien 

Label : Insomnia Art 

nella gloria / LP

30 years ago the Bohémien recorded the tape 'Sangue E Arena', making their debut on the Italian rock scene and quickly earned a place of respect in the goth scene with their original formula of a Mediterranean new-wave sung in Italian. Thanks to that tape, the Bohémien performed on stages such as the Piper in Rome, the Stadio Flaminio, the QBO of Bologna and the Palasport of Arezzo, where they were invited to attend the 1st edition of Arezzo Wave. Everything went very quickly, in just a little over a year, a time too short to arrive at the longed-for goal of the vinyl. Then a period of silence, only to reappear in 2002, with a reunion or perhaps a rebirth, which saw them among the leaders of the revival of the dark / gothic scene in Italy and around the world. This time the recordings had official seals, although on CD (which by then had replaced the beloved vinyl of their youth), with the publication of 'Danze Pagane' (2003), 'La Parata Del Circo' (2005) and the recent 'Bohémien' (2013). Over the years they have performed in a number of live gigs in Italy, Europe and the USA; one of their most recent appearances saw them opening the concert of Peter Murphy at the Orion in Ciampino (RM) in 2013, following the release of their latest, self titled CD in that year. 30 years after the debut the time has come at last for them to issue their 1st vinyl LP: on October 31 2015, for the label Insomnia Art, the Bohémien will publish 'Nella Gloria', on vinyl LP to preserve the analog sound of the tracks of the years 1985-86. The album contains 8 songs of this period, 4 per side, as in the best traditions of old vinyls. These are the original recordings of the new songs "Nella Gloria" and "I Nostri Cuori", never before published officially, and the 6 tracks on the tape debut. All tracks have been remastered and cleaned up. The cover of LP features the original photographs of the band of those years and contains an insert with the lyrics of the songs in Italian. Limited to 300 copies..

sleep of reason


Artist : Doric 

Label : Peripheral Minimal 

sleep of reason / 10"

Doric is the moniker of the purist Stathis Leontiadis (Human Puppets, Exetix, Plexiglas). Being involved in various avant-garde/new-wave music projects since 1996, intrigued by the 'all' analogue mentality of the late 70's/early 80's music field, he is passionatelly commited to vintage synths and machines, creating a very distinctive and specific style and considered by many as a 'specialist'. On this release, the main subject of the record is creative interplay. The 1st side (the 'Asleep' side), includes songs written by the artist alone, using sleep as a metaphor of loneliness and seclusion from the oppressive, everyday society that smothers anything unique under the struggle of daily routine. However, on the 2nd side, Doric mutes his skeptic, internal monologue for a bit and collaborates with 2 very talented and like-minded artists, Pascal & Valisia Odell. Pascal (Foucault, Noisetoy, Ludmilla) is an ingenius multi-instrumentalist and an old friend of Doric and Valisia Odell (Phoenix Catscratch, Strawberry Pills, Father Breath) is one of the most charismatic voices in Greece, with a very distinctive and enchanting vocal hue.This friendship results to the 2nd side (the 'Awaken' side), a critical view of what our society translates into artistic and life success in general. A simplified formula that often leads to bury our most creditable truths, in order to become a pattern, easily readable and understandable by the masses. The overall essence of this record however concludes to a rather optimistic dream of a utopian reality, where everyone can create unobscured. The value of each effort can only be appreciated through time. Limited to 300 black copies with the distincive Doric handmade artwork,a homage to the Diy. Ethos, an infusion from the past but a promise of a future. Strong !

another nightmare


Artist : Oppenheimer MKII 

Label : Peripheral Minimal 

another nightmare / 7"

Oppenheimer MKII is Andy Oppenheimer & Mahk Rumbae. Andy Oppenheimer: singer, songwriter and formerly one-half of 80's synth-pop duo Oppenheimer Analysis, one of the leading bands of the ‘minimal synth’ scene, and inspiration behind the Minimal Wave label. Mahk Rumbae: electronic musician and producer known for his work with long-running UK industrial/experimental band Konstruktivists. Andy & Mahk joined forces after performing together at Vienna's legendary electronic music venue Rhiz in april 2012, and discovering a shared love for for 60's pop & 80's synth music. After their debut album 'The Presence Of The Abnormal', released in 2013, and the 'Line Of Sight' ep released in 2015, the band return with a new single "Another Nightmare" on Peripheral Minimal. The 2 songs "Another Nightmare" and "The Presence Of The Abnormal" were originally featured on their debut album, and now this new single gives these complete new versions of these 2 songs a new lease of life as well as being available on vinyl for the 1st time. Limited to 300 copies with insert.



Artist : Paradox Obscur 

Label : Peripheral Minimal 

anacrusis / LP

2nd album and their 1st on a full-length LP. 'Anacrusis' is a massive dark monument full of analog tendencies to conquer the dancefloor.. An album of complex coldwave and minimal-synth. Rapidly becoming a cult act, this album will surely become a classic of it's genre, and will hopefully please new and current fans of the band. Another milestone for Rhodes' finest. Paradox Obscur use only hardware synthesizers and everything is performed and recorded in real time without the use of software. Limited to 300 copies.



Artist : Philippe Laurent 

Label : Peripheral Minimal 

mithra / 12"

While a newcomer to the label, Laurent is an established multi-media artist well-known for his work in fields ranging from plastic arts and music to graphic and digital codes. He has been active in the electronic music scene for decades, first emerging from the French underground in the early 80's. However, in recent years, his music has been discovered by a whole new audience of appreciative listeners. This is due in large part to key reissues and new releases of Laurent's archival material, beginning with his popular 2011 full-length vinyl LP on US label Minimal Wave, which was followed by releases around the globe on labels such as Electric Voice, Girouette and Serendip. While Laurent historically has executed much of his musical production under the pseudonym Hot-Bip (a name also used as the title of a 1983 cassette release), the 'Mithra' ep is presented instead under his given name. The 4-song release, which is comprised entirely of new material from the present day, includes 2 different versions of the title track as well as 2 versions of "La Tentation De Saint Antoine". Defying genre-specific categorization, these songs incorporate influences from techno, electro and synth-pop while sounding starkly contemporary and capturing a beautiful subtlety of sound. Philippe's general approach to art is one of research, specifically in addressing perception of signs and symbols. In conjunction with this research, he has always remained open to new technologies, whether composing musical works or creating graphic designs. This tendency is on full display in the 'Mithra' ep, where complex electronic sound design creates a densely synthesized backdrop for hard-hitting, dancefloor-friendly beats. All of this is accompanied by unusual vocal additions (both human and otherworldly) that range from ethereal whispers to robotic, Kraftwerk-styled enunciations. With the 'Mithra' ep, Philippe Laurent has created resolutely original electronic music for modern times. Indeed, the ep reveals an artist with an incredible history working at the height of his impressive skills. Limited edition of 500 copies on grey solid-colored vinyl, with a sleeve designed by Laurent himself & Oleg Galay.

beyond the zero


Artist : Spatial Relation 

Label : Peripheral Minimal 

beyond the zero / LP

Highly anticipated debut album by Brooklyn-based duo Spatial Relation. Through word of mouth, the band has built up an international fan base in the past few years. Spatial Relation's cassette ep 'Thoughtcrime' also was released last year by Infravox Records (Peru), and this was preceded by a split 7" single with the artist Xiu on Peripheral Minimal in 2013. The 8 songs that make up 'Beyond The Zero' were produced, recorded and mixed in the band's home studio from 2012 to 2014. In addition to new titles such as the stand-out singles "Tacit Knowledge" and "Phantoms Of The Future", the album includes the cult hit "Contour Lines", which helped launch Spatial Relation to public attention, and closes with the minimalist favorite "Mysteries Of Chance". All tracks have been mastered with care by the famed Dutch producer and engineer Alden Tyrell. With influences ranging from 80's minimal synth to Skam-styled IDM, Spatial Relation's music draws equally from the early pop work of Depeche Mode and the later electro sounds of Dopplereffekt. Emphasizing hard beats, thick basslines, and hypnotic arpeggios, the minimalist arrangements on 'Beyond The Zero' are geared for maximum effect. Created with a carefully chosen selection of analog electronic instruments, the album pairs the overtly synthetic sounds of hardware with human vocal experimentation. Highlighting deep interests in history and the arts, Lissette's darkly romantic vocals touch on themes of disillusionment and alienation in the post-modern world. With references to geometry, precision, chaos and probability, the lyrics expose a mysterious universe of parallel and intersecting ideas. At times the vocal work is atmospheric, draped loosely over electronic soundscapes; other songs reveal a harder spoken-word style, with staccato rhymes delivered in lockstep with crisp drum-machine rhythms. For fans of experimental dance music, the album is avant-garde yet infectiously catchy, perfectly straddling the line between underground minimal synth and pop-structured new-wave. Limited to 300 copies.

this desolation


Artist : Kubo 

Label : Peripheral Minimal 

this desolation / 7"

7" by Irish duo Kubo, who consist of Aidan Casserly (also member of synth act Empire State Human), and Brian O'Malley (also member of Polydroid). This will be the 1st vinyl release by the band, after the initial tape single 'I Dream Electric', on Manchester based label Vocoder Tapes. Kubo pay homage to cubo-futurism, the early 20th century Russian art movement which concerned itself with contemporary concepts of the future and the technological triumph of humanity over nature. Kubo's futuristic synth stylings perfectly fit their name. For lazy comparisons think of 80's synth protagonists, O.M.D & Depeche Mode or even Associates, owing to Aidan's beautifully soaring soulful vocals. But Kubo are more than that, they... Limited edition of 200 copies !

nerd / intermission


Artist : Das Ding 

Label : Tear Apart Tapes 

nerd / intermission / 7"

Danny Bosten's Das Ding project is no newcomer to the scene. In fact, the Dutch pseudo electro artist has been active since the mid 80's via his quirky Tear Apart Tapes label, dealing specifically in cassettes until this new 7". "Nerd" is one of those tunes that crosses many genres and paths, taking the spirit of Kraftwerk and placing it onto a new plateau that is both relevant and inclusive of contemporary styles and ideas.. That bassline could be left on for hours on end! "Intermission" is similarly leftfield, except that here Bosten scraps the buzzy bassline in favour of more tranquil sounds and samples that edge on the Japanese end of the spectrum. Very recommended !!

electro worm


Artist : DMX Krew 

Label : Synth Funk 

electro worm / 12"

The ever reliable Ed Upton (aka DMX Krew) returns with the st EP on Abstract Forms (Synth Funk series). The Rephlex Records veteran is a master of the electro genre, and this release doesn't disappoint. 3 tracks of synth funk and wigged-out oldschool electro aimed squarely at the dancefloor: this is the kind of release that has rightly cemented DMX Krew's reputation. A trusted and skilled producer, undoubtedly one of the best in the game. Also including a remix from the great Luke Eargoggle.

12 brand new Egyptian Lover tracks that will take you right back to 1984. Back to the future!! This album was recorded the way they recorded back in 1984 with analog equipment and a real 808 drum machine in a professional studio.

The kind of music that reaches deep down inside your soul and makes you move. Highly Recommended !

journey of the deep sea dweller II


Artist : Drexciya 

Label : Clone Classic Cuts 

journey of the deep sea dweller II / 2x12"

Clone Classic Cuts continues their re-issues series for one of the most influential techno acts ever: Drexciya. The 2nd selection of tracks includes favorites such as "Bang-Bang", "Positron Island", "Anti Vapour Waves" and "Journey Home" complimented with some lesser or unknown tracks. Raw, uncompromising music made with soul and creativity has been the trademark of Drexciya (and also from their original label Underground Resistance) and this album is another showcase of their talents. There is not much further background info we can give. All that can be revealed is already out there.

journey of the deep sea dweller III


Artist : Drexciya 

Label : Clone Classic Cuts 

journey of the deep sea dweller III / 2x12"

The sheer depth of Drexciya's influence makes it surprising that it took this long (founder James Stinson died just over 10 years ago) for the Detroit pair's material, much of which was only previously available on limited-run, poorly pressed vinyl and crackling MP3 rips, to be re-mastered and reissued. The challenge has finally been taken up with gusto by Clone Records' Classic Cuts offshoot, with this the 3rd instalment of an exhaustive 4-part retrospective charting the shadowy duo's passage into electronic folklore. With all tracks re-mastered by Alden Tyrell from the original tapes, Clone have chosen to avoid straight-up record-by-record reissues, instead drawing highlights from across their catalogue and recasting them into a series of compilations, each of which (loosely speaking) sticks to one era of Drexciya's decade-long career. 'Journey Of The Deep Sea Dweller III' expands on the series' 2nd instalment by concentrating mainly on Stinson and partner Gerald Donald's prolific, mid-90's output on Underground Resistance & Submerge.

journey of the deep sea dweller IV


Artist : Drexciya 

Label : Clone Classic Cuts 

journey of the deep sea dweller IV / 2x12"

The journey continues... Clone Records continue with the re-issue series of the early catalogue of one of the most groundbreaking and influential techno acts ever.. Raw, uncompromising music made with soul and creativity that has always been the trademark of Drexciya. This is the 4th release in the series and contains arguably some of their rarest and most astonishing tracks such as "Black Sea", "Mantaray", "Hydro Cubes" and "Depressurization".

Review to come..!



Artist : Nimoy 

Label : Bunker 

untitled / 12"

Former Unit Moebius member Jan Duivenvoorden flies solo for this spaced out electro release from 2007. Eschewing the demands of the dancefloor in favour of a more cerebral approach, Nimoy starts with the spaced out synths of "We Are The Word" and the haunting electronic melodies of "1981". "Pigeon Is My Prey" sees Duivenvoorden give some concessions to Djs with low-slung rhythms and hissing percussion, while "The Orca Reunion" takes this approach a few steps farther with its low-slung acid and heavy claps. However, Nimoy sounds most assured when mining an introspective path and the melancholic synths of "Smoking" brings the listener back to its spaced out start. 2016 repress with basic artwork !

infiltration and extraction


Artist : Unit Black Flight 

Label : Bunker 

infiltration and extraction / LP

Dark, menacing but ultimately hopeful John Carpenteresque synthesizer fantasies from America's Rust Belt originally released in 2004. Here is the 2016 repress with basic artwork !



Artist : Rutherford 

Label : Brokntoys 

singularis / 12"

For its 6th outing, the UK label has managed to coax a release from Rutherford, aka Swedish producer Ronnie Johansson, who had a track on 'Guests Of Reality', a split release issued by Brokntoys late last year. Although he has been putting out records since the late 90's, 'Singularis' is one of the 1st occasions that he has not released on Stilleben, the label run by Luke Eargoggle. Its loss is Brokntoys' gain and Johansson delivers a series of underground cuts that reinforce the fact that while trends and hype are transient, electro has a sense of permanence. At times, the approach on 'Singularis' is stripped back in extreme; "Spoken Word" revolves around robotic drums, a churning bass, coruscating stabs and little else. In other instances, Rutherford mines a far richer and deeper sound. Both "Learn Leave" and "Ringer" have the churning bass and the kind of mysterious synth melodies that are audibly influenced by Drexciya. However, neither are cheap knock-offs and "Learn Leave" in particular sees Johansson work a vocal that moans and growls into the track's fabric. The title track also provides an indication that electro producers aren't content to remain in a narrowly defined bracket. Staying away from the dancefloor, its synths have an icy, detached feeling, like the early 90's ambience of Autechre or The Black Dog, but against this backdrop, Johansson works in what could be a vocal sample. Its ghostly presence shimmies through the austere soundscape, lending a human touch to the track's robotic form. 'Singularis' doesn't offer a manifesto for radical change or creative upheaval, but it does show that this 40-year-old sound won't be suffering a mid-life crisis anytime soon..

Artist : Black Pond 

Label : Bodyvolt 

chasms / 12"

Black Pond is a collaborative project between Beta Evers from South-Germany & Jeff Gallea (from Eleven Pond) from South-California. Both started their musical career in a very early age in the 80's. Not so very long ago they met via internet and decided to combine their talents for a contemporary wave/synth sound. The 4-song ep 'Chasms' is their debut ep. They both recorded synths and beats for all songs through a ping-pong system, means: one of them started with a song seed, the other one continued to work on it, back and forth until a song was finished. Also the vocals were done by both members. On the A side Black Pond presents "Touch", a melancholic slow song and the moving, occultish "The Lake". On the B side we can listen to an electrified, deep cover version of Velvet Underground's "Venus In Furs" and the very danceable synth stomper "Shiver". A promising debut that whets our appetite for more!

domestic landscape vol.2 (underrated synth classics 1982-1990)


Artist : Various 

Label : Domestica 

domestic landscape vol.2 (underrated synth classics 1982-1990) / LP

2nd volume of 'Domestic Landscape' series, a collection of rare electronic music compiled from bands around the world. Once more, and as Domestica did with the 1st volume of 'Domestic Landscape', here is a selection of songs that you won't find in any other format, apart from of a few exceptions which were published in cassette and in very limited editions. All the bands selected have something in common: they are projects born out of the need to express an own, original and genuine message, built up from a solid basis and the result of hard work. Needless to say, all of them did it through analogic technology and, therefore, the main transmitters of this message are the synthesizers, the drum machines and the sequencers. In addition, each of them created, promoted and sold their music in a totally independent way; in a context which was very different from the current one and, up to a degree, much less friendly. Some of these bands have survived for years, others have disappeared and others have mutated; however, now we can enjoy their music again and give them the recognition that they deserve. Edition of 400 copies with inserts. Tip !

måndag mon amour


Artist : Facit 

Label : Waving Hands Records 

måndag mon amour / 12"

Hailing from Gothenburg, Facit is the project of Joakim Karlsson. For almost a decade, he has been producing tearful synthesizer music under various aliases, often teaming up with compatriot Mai Nestor on vocals. Smartly drawing a line between Swedish chanson and minimal-synth, 'Måndag Mon Amour' is Facit's 2nd ep after having stopped at Veronica Vasicka's Cititrax in late 2013 with 'Mat Åt Duvorna' (Food For Pigeons). Limited edition of 300 copies, hand-numbered insert included. Big Tip !



Artist : Kehrschliefe 

Label : Polytechnic Youth 

8trk / 7"

The Kehrschleife recordings originated from the Mauer park fleamarket in Berlin about 3 years ago, (bought by Allan Murphy of Midwich Youth Club, and cleaned up from the original cassettes by him), they appear to be back-ups of the original Kehrschleife studio master tapes. The tapes are labelled (in German) NDR TV/SFB TV/Radio Bremen themes and Idents and in each cassette case is an A4 sheet detailing the track title/recording date/intended broadcast recipient, with a Kehrschleife/Wolfgang Tilner-Barlow Logo letterhead. According to the stall holder, the tapes were bought as part of a job lot of 70's studio equipment from in the Uhlenhorst area, in the 80's and passed on to him by a relative of the original job lot buyer. Little is known about Tilner-Barlow although the stall owner remembered the name 'Kehrschleife' as being a band from the late 70's Hamburg Neu Deutsche Welle scene. Murphy's research has turned up scant information such as Tilner-Barlow's name on the end credits of a few different 70's German TV shows and a Rest in Peace notice at the end of an 'Arbeit Heute' show from 1984 on YouTube as well as the music appearing on a home video recording of Berlin in the 70's (with apparently numbers stations recordings embedded)". A fabulous 8-track ep, playing at 45rpm in Polytechnic Youth house bags and sure to fly out super quick. Be fast on this one ;)

brick wall takes to air / sirrius


Artist : Middex 

Label : Polytechnic Youth 

brick wall takes to air / sirrius / 7"

Killer new 7" from Polytechnic Youth featuring the enigmatic, underground genius of Middex. Cold as fuck, brutally icey synth blasts from the depths of South East London. In the man himself's own words: "This is the 2nd installation of suburban deliberation and galactic musings for Polytechnic Youth from Middex. This is outer space hidden in the outer boroughs plastered over the flat thump of frosted perspex hearts". A handnumbered edition of 250 copies with additional, various coloured, fold out poster inserts. Strong !!



Artist : Rendez-Vous 

Label : Avant! 

distance / 12"

It was more than a year ago, in the grey parisian midst that we discovered the 1st ep of a group that we couldn't ignore any longer: Rendez-Vous. The band's 1st track "The Others" was heard like a traveling echo in the capital. The 4 piece band was then discovered like a secret longing to be kept, but in vain. While the expectance were heavy on the band, they kept their distance with the outside and focused on the music. So for a while they hibernated in a cave in Bastille that became the core and inspired the corrosive sound of this 2nd ep 'Distance'. The mixing was entrusted to Ben Greenberg, singer and bassist of The Men also producer of Destruction Unit, Beach Fossils and other Sacred Bones Record artists. The result is a 6-track ep that sounds closer to the vision of the band. Supported by a procession of ghosts like Fad Gadget's, Sad Lovers and Giants, the Dance Society's or Nitzer Ebb's ones, that the band resurfaces from the underground ready to shake the dead. The EP is like a heartbreaking beautiful reunion, which is mostly the case with the best rendez-vous.

abject obsessions


Artist : Koban 

Label : Avant! 

abject obsessions / LP

Koban is a young duo hailing from Vancouver, Canada. They had their 1st album out on Broadway To Boundary back in 2013 but it really was their 2014’s ep on Weyrd Son Records that got our attention. Now their 2nd full-length is ready and with it Koban achieved to extend and improve the great results of their previous 'Vide' ep. Cold yet catchy dark post-punk driven by caustic drum machines, featuring French-speaking female vocals and English-speaking male voice, powered by synths and guitars as sharp and dangerous as a rusty blade..

black devotion


Artist : DRIFT 

Label : Avant! 

black devotion / 12"

'Black Devotion' is the debut release by new London-based act DRIFT. Already founding member of the synth/wave trio Phosphor and currently in the shoegaze duo Leave The Planet, young and talented Nathalia Bruno started her own solo project once the band split up after the 'Youth And Immortality' LP back in 2013. Listening to DRIFT one can tell now how much Nathalia influenced Phosphor back then and at the same time a personal evolution is clearly in full sight. Needless to say Depeche Mode and HTRK, Slowdive and Cocteau Twins exercise some influence here, but Nathalia is shaping her own way to those sounds that bands as Tropic Of Cancer and Northern Electronics' Född Död have also been pursuing. There's a brighter component to DRIFT's music visible both in shiny tracks like "Grave" and "Hard To Accept" as in the more ethereal "Dreams In Silkscreen" and "Say It Right". Featuring 6 songs, 'Black Devotion' marks the birth of what Nathalia herself calls devotional synth. Purity in drifting !!

standard of living


Artist : Pure Ground 

Label : Avant! 

standard of living / LP

'Standard Of Living', the new LP by Los Angeles's Pure Ground, finds the duo moving further into the whirring electrical storm only suggested at by their more minimalist previous recordings, creating a soundtrack to a crumbling culture full of provisional one-two rhythms and syncopated bursts of white noise, complimented by grim arpeggiated melodies. Pure Ground have created a niche in the L.A. hard electronics underground making exclusive use of analog hardware to arrive at their sound, which straddles a fine line between early EBM on tracks like Poison and Second Skin, owing inspiration to Belgium's Klinik and Front 242, and more melancholy minimal-synth on downers In Silence and Tides. The one element that binds the new LP is the undercurrent of experimentalism pervasive in every song, which at times comes to surface on tracks like The "Glory Of Absence", which merges the convoluted rhythms of In Phaze era Portion Control with an industrial din and vocal delivery reminiscent of European power electronics groups like Genocide Organ. Lyrical themes focus on the disharmony between the natural, even spiritual, world, with the human dystopia of the post-industrial wastes, and the contradictory sensations of bliss and desperation, ecstasy and fear, bred in this climate. This is music for the end of days. Limited edition of 300 copies with inside-out jacket & printed inner sleeve..!



Artist : Qual 

Label : Avant! 

sable / LP

Qual is Lebanon Hanover's bassist and vocalist William Maybelline. With his solo project he aims to examine his personal view on music, Maybelline moved from the pop touch of well-known and respected main band of his to cruise the slums of darker and even more extreme electronics. To quote William's own words, Qual is about vile visions, despaired in a frowning black tower of pain. Concealed yearns of a desolate heart, trying to scratch that unscratchable rotting itch from within. Centuries of sorrow drenched in gloomy electronics that palpitate like human passions. A call for help. 33rpm black vinyl LP edition housed in UV glossy jackets. Comes with lyrics insert and free digital download coupon..

I keep on searching


Artist : Contrepoison 

Label : Avant! 

I keep on searching / 12"

Long due vinyl press of Contrepoison 2nd ep. We have been glad and proud to debut Pierre-Marc Tremblay's electronic solo project back in 2011 with his 1st '...Until Next Morning' ep. Since then Contrepoison has shared an ace split with Vatican Shadow and put out a couple of tape releases on his own Sans Issue record label. Digitally released in 2012 by Hospital Productions and Heartworm Press, 'I Keep On Searching' finally sees the light on vinyl. The closest comparison we could make is early Cold Cave again, but there's more here: something dead-eyed and drugged proper to this sound. Make sure to check the sludgy bass thrust and distant, dingy vox of "I Keep On Searching" and the bleak, tormented coldwave pop of "Nectar Of Destiny". One-time pressing of 500 on 45rpm black vinyl 12". Comes with thick insert sheet with lyrics and credits.

new grave


Artist : Night Sins 

Label : Avant! 

new grave / LP

Born by members of hardcore bands Salvation and Mother Of Mercy, Night Sins is the aural proof that life does not walk so dark all over Europe alone. Emerging sometime around 2011 under the oppressive skies of Philadelphia, these overcast malcontents are fitly connected to a city engrossed in shadow-soaked vices and dilapidated architecture. Not to imply that there isn't a comforting sort of gloominess in this musical malaise as Night Sins frolic down a musical path originally cut by The Sisters of Mercy and Clan of Xymox, with enough hints of Pink Turns Blue, The Mission, and other extensions into 80's darkwave to produce memorable songwriting that stands on its own. Bass and drums punch through the mist thick as thieves, guitar lines circle like falcons overhead, minimal-synths street clean some of the residual dirt, and singer-songwriter Kyle Kimball's vocals confidently press through an intimate fog. There is a brilliant light in the midst of dimness, and Night Sins is carrying the torch. Comes on black vinyl with insert with band pics and lyrics.
