the floor mixes

14.99€

Artist : Five Times Of Dust / Unovidual & Tara Cross 

Label : Minimal Wave 

the floor mixes / 12"

2 classic Minimal Wave tracks which have been on heavy rotation for years now, "Computer Bank" and "Like I Am, Comme Je Suis" remixed by The Floor (aka Veronica Vasicka & Karl O'Connor). Five Times Of Dust was formed in Bristol (UK) in 1981 by Mark Phillips & Rob Lawrence. Mark had answered an advert that Rob had placed in a local record shop and later that year they went on to record and release their 1st tape, 'The Dadacomputer'. A standout track from that tape, "Computer Bank" is a seminal, 'proto-techno banger'. The Floor remixed it a while ago to Dj it out and since then have been receiving many requests about where it could be purchased. The flip side features Unovidual & Tara Cross' "Like I Am / Comme Je Suis". It appeared on MW 1st compilation entitled 'The Lost Tapes' LP, released in 2006. Unovidual was a Belgian producer involved with the Micrart Group (Autumn, Linear Movement, Twilight Ritual) and Tara Cross, a 'long lost girl from Brooklyn' who used to play in small NYC downlown clubs alongside Madonna during the early 80's when she was still an unknown. Unovidual & Tara collaborated on several tracks through the mail during this time as well as in the studio. "Like I Am / Comme Je Suis" was recorded in a studio in Ghent (Belgium), in 1985. We find both of these tracks prime examples of innovative and pioneering synth wave tracks that work on and off the dancefloor. And through these mixes, The Floor aim to stay true to the artists' original intentions whilst making the songs more dancefloor oriented. Featured alongside these remixes, are 2 unreleased tracks. Rob Lawrence's "Armoured Car" which at one point was released on a compilation CD as Robert (not to be confused with Rob Doran from Hard Corps) and Unovidual's "Imponative", a beautiful minimal synth track which has remained unreleased to this day. The Five Times Of Dust / Unovidual & Tara Cross ep is pressed on standard weight royal blue clear vinyl and housed in a hand stamped disco sleeve. Limited to 600 numbered copies..!

kindheitsmuster

10.29€

Artist : Das Ding 

Label : Minimal Wave 

kindheitsmuster / 7"

7” single of 2 early demos ("Kindheitsmuster" and "Raid") by Dutch electronic music pioneer Das Ding. The final versions of these tracks were released on 'H.S.T.A.' and the 'Missing Tapes', respectively. The versions here are the most raw and electric recordings we have heard by Das Ding yet. Danny Bosten formed Das Ding as a solo project in the early 80's and released his music and friends' music via his own cassette label called Tear Apart Tapes. At the time, he was studying graphic design at art school, and in turn he ended up designing the artwork, cassette-sleeves and illustrations for the label himself. Meanwhile, he recorded his own music as Das Ding. Powerful dark electro, he made several addictive and danceable tracks which later become Minimal Wave hits. Danny made all his music in his bedroom which essentially turned into a small recording studio. He went on to release many of his own tapes and also played some live gigs. Old tapes were uncovered around 2010, and Minimal Wave released a remastered version of 'H.S.T.A.' and select other tracks. A wave of renewed interest followed the record's release and soon people were in touch to propose live shows. 20 years later, and after some deliberation, Das Ding was reincarnated under its old moniker but now with a revised line-up and a working set-up that reflected inevitable technological change. The 'Kindheitsmuster / Raid' 7" is pressed on black vinyl, featuring a photograph that Danny Bosten took during his art school days, and the inspiration for the cover drawing of the 'H.S.T.A.' cassette release from 1982. The 7" is limited to 500 numbered copies.

promises & infatuation

17.49€

Artist : Borusiade / The Sixteen Steps 

Label : Cititrax 

promises & infatuation / 12"

Split ep by 2 massive talents, Borusiade & The Sixteen Steps. Borusiade, originally from Bucharest (Romania) began as a Dj in the early 2000's and then started producing music in 2005. With a background in classical music, she combined her love of raw electronics, obscure themes and melodic lines to create her own signature sound. She has released on the Cómeme label as well as Corresepondent. "Infatuation" and "Confutation" are dark, moody and intense tracks that catch you upon 1st listen. The flip side of the 'Promises And Infatuation' ep features The Sixteen Steps, the brainchild of George Lanham who cut his musical teeth Djing and running events in the south of England. We have been listening to many of his tracks endlessly for a while now. They've also been a highlight of Veronica Vasicka's Dj sets as of late. "Signals From The South" and "Promises On The Run" are both immaculately produced, hypnotic, dancefloor killers. They are sparse EBM meets smoky warehouse techno, and offer a wonderful contrast to Borusiade's layered emotive tracks that reminisce of an East Village club in the 80's. Themes of infatuation, appearances, and anonymity appear throughout this ep from the music itself right through to the cover art. Limited edition vinyl pressing of 999 copies, first 500 copies are pressed on black inside milky clear vinyl (each record is one of a kind), housed in a matte printed sleeve.

sunday night live at the laptop cafe

Artist : The Other People Place feat Mystic Tribe AI 

Label : Clone Aqualung Series 

sunday night live at the laptop cafe / 12"

One of the 2 The Other People Place releases (the Warp full length and this 12"). Drexciyan involvement in this classic release is obvious. One of the deepest and intense tracks with such a warm positive vibe. Flipside contains a track by Mystic Tribe (not very mystical of course for those who know the history of Detroit techno. Unique track from a unique project... and there are not many projects with Tribe in its name. Their release on Retroactive is one Detroit techno collector items). One of those records that get you through the day. Classic!!! Re-issue on the Clone Aqualung Series with new artwork.

Artist : Lake Haze

intergalactic communicationz ep / 12"

Following his 'Natural Insight' ep earlier in the year comes 'Intergalactic Communicationz', 4 more fresh tracks of acid, techno and electro that is brilliantly evocative. The Portuguese artist known as Goncalo Salgado also please son labels like Unknown to the Unknown and is a real hardware master. "At The Gates Ov Futron" is a turbulent lack track with zipping acid and a cacophony of percussion that is visceral as well as cinematic. "Drexciyan Aquarium" is, as the name suggest, an aqueous electro track that slithers and slides through an expansive underwater world. "Poseidon's Dream" then offers a more rugged electro groove that is backed by heavenly pads and a real sense of loss in the synths. Last of all, "Intergalactic Communication" closes out this far travelling and intergalactic ep with a sci-fi deep house track that is filled with light, 909s and a sense that the end of the world is coming.

mindstorms ep / 12"

From his debut in production at the turn of the new millennium onto his most recent deeds on the likes of Ron Morelli's L.I.E.S., Dj Overdose (aka Jeroen Warmenhoven) has remained true to the sound legacy of the underground Dutch scene and its flagship imprints Bunker, Crème and Viewlexx - carving out a unique and consistently inspired body of work that keeps giving, one release after the other. Back on Glasgow-based Craigie Knowes, the Dutch producer steps up with the aptly-named 'Mindstorms' ep to dish out a masterclass in spacewalking electronics and Detroit-imbued electro grooves. This one has received huge praise in reviews from Les Yeux Orange and Inverted Audio, with the record also being tipped by Mixmag's electro writers and XLR8R magazine's Rebecca.

the styx swamp

Artist : Heinrich Dressel 

Label : Barba Records 

the styx swamp / 12"

Roman producer (and a force behind MinimalRome label) Valerio Lombardozzi known as Heinrich Dressel returns to Barba with a 2nd release titled 'The Styx Swamp'. Heinrich has a unique way of combining classic techno and electro sounds with elements from the beloved Drexciyan universe and John Carpenter leitmotifs, and making them come together in a manner that both moves your body and pushes your mind beyond the point of awareness. As with the previous record, 'Lurking Underwater', here he pulls off the move with the same efficiency and without sounding like he's repeating himself. "Gray Slope", "Sailing The Nether Waterways" and "The Styx Swamp" are all quite moody and deep, rich with sound and thick with vibe. However, the tracks feel equally at home in 4 am techno situation and a heady afterhours affair. He truly is a master of crafting hybrids whose influences get so flawlessly embedded that it's hard to point them out. If that's not enough, 'The Styx Swamp' got a treatment by Nigel Rogers (aka Perseus Traxx), a multi-faceted producer and a mighty live act performer. Nigel stayed respectful to the original but made the original's bouncy groove into something more direct and reduced, while retaining the same feel conditioned by lead synth's hypnotic quality. We're known to give a little bit of extra love to our releases so (as all before) this one's pressed onto a heavy duty 180gr vinyl and beautifully packaged in an original artwork by EmaEmaEma.

With the 'Asexual' ep by YobKiss, Electronic Emergencies is back with a true electronic delight. YobKiss consists of Dutch instrumentalist and producer Paul Borchers, currently based in San Francisco, and Tokyo resident Yuko Araki on vocals. Their music balances on the edge of avant-garde electronics and flirts with acid pop in dreamy soundscapes, with an analogue synth sound and beautiful vocals in Japanese and English. Or, in their own words, a pitch-dark, filth-ridden tour de force into the worlds of acid house and electro...

Electronic Emergencies is proud to introduce Ceci N'Est Pas, a synth-wave project from New York consisting of Nico Nightingale, Pierre Klein & Jorge Socarras. Nico Nightingale is the man behind Neud Photo and earlier worked with Pierre Klein as Neud. Jorge Socarras was singer with synth maestro Patrick Cowley in the 70's duo 'Catholic', and with 80's cult band Indoor Life. Together, they started Ceci N'Est Pas in 2014, and this 7" 'The Last Time' is their 1st release. The title track on the A-side is an irrestisibly melancholic and romantic synth-wave pop song, while B-side "The Stranger" has a mysterious and yearning feel.

Nico Nightingale, aka Neud Photo, is no stranger to collaborations. The New Yorker's latest sees him teaming up with Cristiano F. Grimaldi to form INTRZN, a partnership meshing a freestyle approach to melodies with cold rhythms. Their 'Zone' quartet is a twilight of fluctuating moods. Percussion is bare, allowing bright bars to shine and darker moments to fester. Music which in one breath is elated and uplifting and, the next, dejected and downtrodden.

Artist : Bionda E Lupo 

Label : Charlois 

die kinder aus dem park / 12"

Bionda E Lupo are like little you'll have heard before, a boy/girl band like no other. Synth-wave is fed a line of modern alienation, delusory disco to a disdainful drum beat, house emptied and ridiculed. Rhythms are stark, melodies are as mechanical as the lyrics. "Zug Der Vogel" is sparse, vocals intertwine in an empty embrace whilst bars sparkle. "Twoi Glasza" is more playful. Bright words shimmer against sweeping strings. The past is parodied across the ep but nowhere more so than in "Die Kinder Aus Dem Park". A former classic dug out before being peppered by machine gun percussion. The stilted rhyme of "Eckstein" closes, a ballad of bittersweet images and lost hopes.

Artist : Quadratschulz 

Label : Shipwrec 

ww303 / 2x12"

Quadratschulz delivers his debut album 'WW303'. 10 tracks make up this vision, a vision of lazers, pulsing neon and gleaming chrome. Arcade game memories. Curls of acid. Electrofunk vocals. Synth-wave chic. And even some past greats. All are lovingly folded together in this rich and diverse collection. Styles are juxtaposed. 303 bars throb and strings soar in the lilting "Der Rasende Roland" whereas "Robotic Dancer" struts to a future-world funk. Quadratschulz sculpts his sound with a wonderfully warm and autumnal quality, as in the cascading synth showers of "Ferrofluid." Yet there are colder moments, the frigid flows of "Kran" sprouting into the chilly house tones of "Piloten", a tribute to the groundbreaking LFO is also included. Bleep festooned chicanery is the offering as "Ring The Bell" takes you back to the infamous warehouse parties of 90's Britain. And if that weren't enough, the 2xLP also comes with downloads for some cracking remixes by DMX Krew, Andreas Gehm, Kettel, Chris Moss Acid and Posthuman to name but a few. A wide angle view of Quadratschulz's unique sound.

presents h-world: adapted gills / 12"

1997: 'Drexciya don't have phone. They're too busy to do your remix'. Mad Mike's response was short and to the point, enough to put off some; but not Vincent Koreman. Addicted from an early age, the Dutch producer dug deeper and deeper into the mythology and mystery of James Stinson & Gerald Donald. The sounds, images and ideas conjured up by the Detroit electro duo pulled Koreman in, his fascination growing ever more intense as the underwater dwellers sonically prospered. Fast forward 20 years and that fascination has not diluted one drop, in fact the aquatic dream of the wavejumpers is the inspiration for 'Recolonization'. These tracks "would have never had existed", says Koreman, "if it wasn't for Stinson & Donald creating that great, energetic, abstract electronic music and coupled it with an original vision on the African diaspora, art and culture". This music is an homage to the enigma of Drexciya, a tribute to the machine marine men who pioneered electro and a vision. Drvg Cvltvre continues that vision, one of "an underwater race" that has reconquered Earth, overcoming "big business, corporate greed and water pollution" to reclaim the surface from man. Forget mankind. Our time is over, 'Recolonization' is here !!

A spectrum of sound is allowed to roam, to wander into strange worlds of galvanised synthlines, serrating snares and soulful strings. The 12" is perfectly balanced, astral melodies countered by crisp and precise rhythms, distant harmonies tethered to absorbing bass. A renewed partnership with machinist in arms Paris The Black FU of Detroit Grand Pubahs is formed for the mechanical dreamscape that is "Globb". A complex and utterly compelling encounter with the Luxus Varta nebula.

bodypop ep / 12"

It seemed like Neo Ouija, a Norfolk based IDM imprint, had closed up shop. 4 years of silence suggested that founder Lee Norris, aka Metamatics, had decided to call it a day. But looks can be deceiving. 2016 saw the boss release a CD album of fluid acid, squelching electro and heartfelt electronics. Shipwrec are now bringing 4 choice cuts from 'Bodypop' to the vinyl faithful. Proudly sitting on the "difficult to define" shelf, Norris seamlessly shifts from frigid winter moods to warming autumnal sunshine. Oldschool sounds are rewired, softened by delicate keys and steady beats. Machine music morphs into organic matter. Acid coils, echoed bleeps and clicks grow and blossom into vivid audio vistas with Metamatics, once again, proving his musical mastery..

From the depths of the dark net come Telkhin, the latest addition to the Shipwrec roster. Following Earth Being Recycled on Detroit Underground, the Argentine project are debuting on vinyl with 5 tracks of off-world electronics. The chilling atmospherics of "Body Container" meet the needle before an electro iciness takes hold. Spiking snares and echoed radiowaves orbit the moody "Walk In", that same frosted futurism central to "Level Above Human". Telkhin melts man and machine, giving the computer age a humanoid form. Processors whirr in the bassy bleeps and residues of "Brithomber" before the final statement. Leaving the human world behind "Flight 19" is a fast and future funk driven piece of 2050 music. Forget the past, embrace the next step. Limited run of 150 coloured copies (blue/green).

could you find your analog mind? / LP

Can you believe that in former Yugoslavia existed some people who were making edits and remixes without using MIDI or PC? Can you believe these same people were making their original synth-pop stuff under the influence of Yellow Magic Orchestra and Logic System? Yes, it is true. These were Zoran Jevtic and Zoran Vracevic, the pioneers of electronic music in former Yugoslavia. With groups Šizike and The Master Scratch Band they brought minimal electronic and breakbeat to their former country. However, with their original band from 1981 called Data they created the most thrilling electronic. You can find their finest works in 'Could You Find Your Analog Mind?' issued by Belgrade's Discom label. It is an LP compilation with 12 previously unreleased tracks made between 1981 & 1984. It contains the 1st ever remixes made in former Yugoslavia and obscure synth-pop made under the influence of Japanese scene !

With the staccato surge and somber vocalizing of DAF, the distorted synthetic soundscapes of Dirk Ivens' eeriest work, and the industrial strength of The Young Gods, Martial Canterel's earliest outings are a bleak intellectual exercise in the dark and danceable. His music creates a cold atmosphere, and has an ominous melancholy feel to it. The emotional, and sometimes dark feel of the album is everything electronic new wave music should be. It's futuristic, robotic, and at the same time, nostalgic. Essential recordings by the minimal synth master of our age. Deluxe edition of 500 copies.

in silence

Artist : Fra Lippo Lippi 

Label : OnderStroom Records 

in silence / LP

Reissue of 'In Silence' the gloomy 1981 debut LP from this Norwegian gothic post-punk band founded in 1978. Band members were Rune Kristoffersen (guitar, bass, keyboards, piano), Per Oystein Sorensen (vocals, synthesizer, keyboards) and Morten Sjoberg (drums, keyboards). Their sound was heavily influenced by bands such as Joy Division and The Cure. In 1981 the band recorded and released 'In Silence', a hard to grasp, dark album with ominous bass lines, death-march percussion, pensive keyboards, and sinister, indecipherable vocals. The band had installed a semi-professional 4-track recording studio in a small basement. The recording of the album started in june 1981 and was not completed until 4 months later. Rune Kristoffersen: "It took a long time. Our compositions were based on the drums and the bass, which we coloured with guitars, voices and keyboards. The sound was completely natural, both concrete and abstract". On the record it was difficult to hear the vocals, as it was mixed far behind the instruments. So it was made impossible to understand the lyrics. 'In Silence' has a more unrefined sound and should have any fan of Joy Division wishing they'd heard of this band sooner. If I were to review Closer or Unknown Pleasures today, they'd obviously receive 5/5. Therefore, since Fra Lippo Lippi is so strangely similar, and 'In Silence' is almost like having a new Joy Division/New Order album, I'd be hard pressed to give it a anything less than a near perfect score. Find out for yourself what you've missed out on for the past 20 years. Wow! Released in an edition of 500.

Both tracks on the 7" are a delightful proof of the lively and creative music scene in Brussels during the early 80's, supported by labels such as Factory Benelux and Les Disques Crépuscule and the famous venue Plan K. Occidental White was founded at same time as Kaa Antilope, the extraordinary new wave band founded by Bernard Vranckx and Frédéric Walheer. Bernadette was the additional member and took care of the vocal part. The idea was to do 'pop' songs inspired by occidental white culture, which was the opposite to Kaa Antilope which was more focused on outside inspiration. Edition of 300 copies !

prototech / 2x12"

Dark Entries & Serendip Lab have teamed up to release 'Prototech', the 1st vinyl retrospective by German electronic trio Hypnobeat, recorded 1984-86. James Dean Brown and Pietro Insipido formed Hypnobeat in 1983, but it was the addition of Victor Sol only a few months later that found the project reaching, as Brown puts it, "the desired level of technical sophistication". In time, Tobias Freund also lent his talents (and equipment) to this loose-fit sonic scheme, where the protagonists sought a new, electronic manifestation of mankind's tribal music roots. 2 cassette releases surfaced–1985's 'Huggables' and 'Specials/Spatials' the following year. By this point the Frankfurt-based group had already explored fiercely mechanical creative expression through various configurations of hardware and personnel, revolving around core ingredients such as the TR-808, TB-303 and MC-202. The project lived on in spirit as Brown activated Narcotic Syntax in the 90's. While a more modern, digital concern, rooted in the Perlon label family, NS still channeled the Hypnobeat concept of a 'new tribalism', not least on their 'Provocative Percussion' double 12" released in 2006. For all the punky veneer, there are instances where these tracks reach staggering levels of sophistication, not least on "Slash! Buffalo Eats Brass" with its intricately programmed 303 lines and nimble beats that sound a far cry from most machine music made in 1986. Prescient "Can God Rewind?" is also dazzling in the complexity of its percussion and the richness of its synth lines in C as they throb out a bastardised version of acidic disco straight out of the rhythm collider. Elsewhere, some tracks are more primal in their execution. Visceral opening track "The Arumbaya Fetish" was a cathartic venting of Brown's least favourite sound on the 808, the iconic cowbell, while the astounding proto-acid miniature "Moon Jump" places limber 303 lead lines in a hail of thunderstruck patterns. "Kilian" has a stripped down quality that speaks more to the industrial era that Hypnobeat was conceived in, and "Mission In Congo" is a raw, reverb-soaked drum workout that captures the percussive-obsessive nature of Hypnobeat perfectly. 6 of the 7 tracks selected on this collection were primarily powered by two 808s. "I am amazed that the release sounds like we really had a plan back then.." states Brown, but this accidental magic is in fact the raison d'être of Hypnobeat. They weren't the only ones prefiguring the next big revolutions in electronic music in the mid 80's, but there certainly weren't many artists stumbling across modes of expression that sound so relevant today. Housed in a jacket featuring cave engravings by Pietro Insipido of an archer and animal printed in a wallpaper pattern style designed by Eloise Leigh. Each copy includes an transparent insert of an x-ray photograph from 1984 of Romulus Cœurque holding the circuit board of a BOSS DR-55 rhythm machine.

pendulum / LP

Sumerian Fleet is a trio formed by Dutch producers Alden Tyrell and Mr Pauli, joined by Zarkoff after their 2010 debut ep. Their 2nd ep came out in 2012 followed by their debut album 'Just Pressure' on Dark Entries in 2014. Sumerian Fleet have returned to release their sophomore LP 'Pendulum' of all new material as well as a remixed version of "This Game Has No Name" from Zarkoff's other band, FFFC. 'Pendulum' contains 80's dark wave/EBM inspired tracks with an industrial tinge. The band cites inspiration from musical acts Fad Gadget, Front 242, Bauhaus and Sisters of Mercy. Literary references come from Poe's 'The Pit And The Pendulum', Pelevin's 'Generation P' and 'Life Of Bugs', as well as classic cyberpunk like Gibson's 'Sprawl' trilogy. Sumerian Fleet deliver 8 songs of vintage dark electro with a gothic tinge and a touch of bass guitar. The album's been put together in a way that the listener can connect the dots, create a narrative, and become immersed in this attitude that the band's trying to convey, such as Vigny's idea of accepting despair: "A calm despair, without angry convulsions or reproaches directed at heaven, is the essence of wisdom". All songs were initially recorded at Mr Pauli's studio in Den Haag, with overdubs and additional recordings at Zarkoff's Sensorium studio in Croatia, and then final mix downs at Alden Tyrell's studio in Rotterdam. Each LP is packaged in a copper foil stamped jacket designed by Eloise Leigh, with abstract squares in varied rhythmic repetitions to indicate motion, and included a double sided 10"x10" insert with lyrics and notes.

Label : Dark Entries 

untitled / 12"

Keine Ahnung was a quartet from Wörth am Rhein, Germany formed in 1980. The original line up was Rolf Schmuck, Franz H. Rodenkirchen, Elke Fuchs and Olaf Schumacher. Hermann Kopp from Stuttgart, a friend of the band, contributed a composition on their 1st LP and became a full member in 1985. Taking cues from Conrad Schnitzler, Tuxedomoon and Dome, the band members shared a common interest in industrial, pop, avant garde literature and cinema. Their controversial name translates to 'Don't Know' or 'Haven't Got A Clue' in German. The quartet would record 3 LPs in 6 years, 2 of which remain unreleased. In march 1983, Keine Ahnung recorded their self-produced and financed debut LP in 2 days in a small studio in Stuttgart (12 hours total). The mixing was done in 1 day in a studio in Karlsruhe, april 1983. The self-titled LP was released later that summer on their own PASSIV label in an edition of 1000 copies. This record obtained recognition far beyond the German borders. Keine Ahnung in the studio and live were completely different. Studio time was expensive in these days, so the music was minimal electronic pop, expertly crafted and razor sharp man machine music. The live sound utilized more complex synthesizers, tapes, guitars, metal percussion and custom built electronics. The beats and bass lines came from the Roland 606/303 duo triggering a KORG MS-20 for the bass drum. The track "Funkbild DPA" is a spontaneous 'live in the studio' recording, that gives a hint of what the live sound was like. All 4 members would take turns singing and playing the instruments. The vinyl is housed in an exact replica jacket designed by Rolf Schmuck, featuring black & white texture and cartoon drawings the band members. Each copy includes a double sided insert featuring lyrics, notes and photos of the band.

la vida sigue igual

Label : Dark Entries 

la vida sigue igual / 12"

'La Vida Sigue Igual', the sophomore ep from Savage Hymn. The project is a collaboration between Miami born-and-bred Mystic Bill Torres (Trax, Relief, Classic) and native New Yorker Jake Reif (Device Control, Upsetting Keys). Jake spent some musically formative years in the Midwest, drawing influence from the cultures of Chicago and Detroit. Fueled by the underground energy of warehouse and loft parties of the era, he began his Dj career in the early 90's. Bill grew up going to goth and industrial clubs in Miami before moving to Chicago where he held residencies at clubs with Johnny Fiasco, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, and Ralphi Rosario. The duo is heavily influenced by the early Chicago house and Detroit techno sounds as well as European electronic body music like Front 242 and Liaisons Dangereuses. Their 1st release 'Indecision' was a white label for Rong Music in 2015. 'La Vida Sigue Igual' is immediately a more physical affair than its predecessor, kicking off with the title track, a hard hitting percussive monster. The sparse simplicity of the machine gun synth work & monotone Spanish vocals by Mystic Bill evoke classic 80's industrial and art house dance tracks. We've included the instrumental version for adventurous Djs who want play doubles. On the B-side are 2 versions of the track "Animals". Version 1 explores the underbelly of NY with maniacal industrial rhythms and samples from Diamanda Galas and Travis Bickle (Robert DeNiro) in Taxi Driver. Version 2 ventures into dark freestyle territory, fueled by the underground energy of Chicago's Warehouse and Medusas clubs. The vinyl comes housed in a jacket with hand drawn illustration of night time jungle themes designed by Eloise Leigh and screen printed in muted teal pantone on French environment paper by Stumptown Printers. Each ep includes a postcard with a black and white photograph of the duo.

Artist : Lives Of Angels 

Label : Dark Entries 

hole in the sky / LP

Lives of Angels was the brainchild of Gerald O'Connell from London, England. At the end of the 70's, O'Connell had been working on material for Mystery Plane, a band that included his wife Catherine on keyboards and backing vocals. In 1980 the pair of them left to form Lives Of Angels and focus on O'Connell's own songs, which he felt were more oblique, atmospheric and evocative than the narrative style and social commentary of Mystery Plane. The result sounds both of its time, comfortably nestling under the gloomy clouds of British post-punk and goth, and oddly out of time; its homemade quality placing it outside of obvious chronological signifiers as the motorik riffs and spartan drum patterns loop over and over to infinity. O'Connell was unimpressed by the musical offerings of the early 80's (with the exception of New Order, Cocteau Twins and Depeche Mode, he notes), instead drawing from San Francisco psychedelia, Van Morrison's Astral Weeks, Congolese guitarist Dr. Nico and the full pantheon of krautrock (especially Amon Düül II, whose song 'Archangels Thunderbird' contains the line, "there is no elevator to Eden but a hole in the sky"). Keyboards and some vocals were provided by Catherine, who also acted as editor, making changes to the arrangements or pointing out inappropriate drum patterns (hence her credit in the sleeve notes as "percussion censor"). 'Elevator To Eden' was originally released in 1983 on cassette by Color Disc and reissued on vinyl in 2012 on Dark Entries, in slightly condensed form. 'Hole In The Sky' is an 11-track compilation of material from the Lives of Angels archives. Including 2 tracks from the original 'Elevator To Eden' cassette omitted from our vinyl reissue, 2 tracks from Color Disc compilations and 7 previously unreleased tracks. This compilation features the very earliest Lives of Angels recordings "Call Moscow" and "Somebody Else" as well as the final composition from 1986 "The Infinite Corridor" plus original mixes of "After Dark" and "Look Out Kid" different than the versions on the 'Color Supplement' compilation. 'Hole In The Sky' is an impressive example of early 80's home recording; a DiY interpretation of the elegance and ambition of the previous decade's krautrock. Each copy comes in custom made jacket designed by Eloise Leigh and includes an 11x11 double-sided insert with liner notes, lyrics and photos. "You have no idea how rewarding it is that people are interested in what we did all those years ago", says O'Connell. "Catherine had a very happy time doing all that stuff, it was brilliant, and I felt that it was a success artistically. It deserved more attention. Better late than never".

Label : Dark Entries 

27 / 12"

Tobias Bernstrup is a contemporary musician and video artist born in 1970 in Gothenburg, Sweden. He received an MFA from Royal College University of Fine Arts Stockholm in 1998. Using the visual language of pop culture, video games, sci-fi, classicism and gothic noir, he has created a stage persona with notorious live performances. Dressed in elaborate costumes of skin-tight rubber suits and fetish gear, Tobias' external appearance is androgynous. He raises questions about representation of identity, the body and physical space in both virtual and non-virtual realities. Between 1997 and 1998 he self-released 2 limited CD-r ep's. In 2002 his debut album 'Re-Animate Me' was released by Tonight Records followed by 2 limited 12" singles for the song "27" and the Italian version "Ventisette". '27' is a 5-song ep collecting 4 different mixes of the title track plus one unreleased song from the 'Re-Animate Me' recording sessions. The material on this ep is closely connected with the world of computer games which Bernstrup also inhabits. Bernstrup's music is influenced by 80's italo-disco and synth-pop, reminiscent of Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode and Ken Lazlo. On the A-side is the original mix at 115bpm followed by the 'Laser mix' set to an faster beat and additional arpeggiations and heavier bass drum beats. Lyrically the song tells the story of a good looking 27-year old boy from a small town searching for love with any man who can spoil him. On the B-side are both the vocal and instrumental of "Ventisette", the Italian translation of the song "27". Both versions of "Ventisette" are stripped back compared to the A-side but keep the melodies in tact. Also released for the first time ever is the demo "Dirty Money" a Pet Shop Boys influenced song about male prostitutes ready for a night out working the streets. For the jacket Eloise Leigh transformed the original portrait of Tobias into a Warhol-like painted polaroid with a striking likeness to Liza Minelli with blue eye shadow and red lipstick. Each copy includes a photo postcard with lyrics and notes. "I would rather create alternative routes to experiencing and understanding the world, understanding what it means to be human today", says Bernstrup. "We are more artificial than we want to admit".

primes

12.99€

Artist : Bezier 

Label : Dark Entries 

primes / 12"

Latest offering from Bézier, a 3-track ep titled 'Primes'. Bézier is the moniker of San Francisco based musician Robert Yang, who is also part of the Honey Soundsystem crew. A multi-instrumentalist, Robert planted his roots in San Francisco in 2005. Over the years in SF he has built an impressive analog synth-based studio, which also serves as the creative hub for his riveting live performances. 'Primes' represents the theme of primordial origins and creation with 3 tracks that explore disparate, sonic environments in each song. The title track flows and ebbs like currents in an oil slick. Out of something messy (like primordial ooze) arises organized chaos. "Stranger" is a moody dark electro/wave track for a sweaty night cruising on the west coast of Holland. Set against an underwater sound canvas the song features seductive guest vocals and lyrics by Nicole Ginelli. Doc Sleep of Jacktone Records provides additional production duties. The final track, "Imperial Tranz Am", is an airy, ethereal slow burner clocking in at over 13 minutes. It originally appeared as the soundtrack to an experimental queer fantasy film of the same name by SF film maker Aron Kantor. The vinyl comes housed in a jacket featuring a Quadtone pastel earthtone of pixelated celluar ooze designed by Eloise Leigh. Each ep includes a postcard with an image still from the 'Imperial Tranz-Am' movie. "Do I hear what I see, is it real or just a feeling, a vibration of N-R-G".
