Artist : Johanna Liebhart 

Label : Treue Um Treue 

damals… / 10"

Mysterious and long-forgotten electro-wave diva of the early 80's, Johanna Liebhart disappeared in largely unknown circumstances back in 1999, leaving behind several unreleased albums. Even if her name is not familiar, some of you will already know her style from Ich Wollte Ich Könnte’s 1st album, which was inspired by, and largely based on some of her compositions. The tracks on this 10” are all taken from her early tape recordings, and probably represent some of her most emotional and intimate works, as simple and modest in their beauty as the personality of their creator was facetious. 7 neo-romantic analogue synth pieces, entirely instrumental. Sacral, minimal and utterly desperate, like the disclosing of someone’s secret chapel, or the hidden garden of a run-down doll-house. Limited to 277 copies only..!

Extremely rare minimal wave album from the mysterious John Bender. 'Plaster Falling' consists of material from tapes 34 to 45 and was recorded between mid-1979 and mid-1981. 8 sexy tracks of incredible lo-fi minimalist electronic groove. Reminiscent at times of a darker Bruce Haack, this album is super fuzzed out and surreal electronic goodness. Bender has a voice unlike any other.

Label : Get Back 

the garden / LP

Foxx’s second album The Garden ('81) reveals a true genius of the so-called New Wave, already set for the musical revolution of the early eighties. Unlike his solo debut, The Garden is not a pure act of experimentation but tries to collect many influences such as The Velvet Underground, Roxy Music and various apparently incommensurable legacies, tied together by Foxx’s majestic lyricism and voice. Nice !

1 / LP

Joie Noire is the new project by Parisian producer, engineer, dj Jérôme Caron (aka Blackjoy). With Blackjoy he produced nice and groovy disco tracks for the last decade or so and for Joie Noire he is introducing his dark side. A motionless journey shaped by the likes of Can and Weather Report to Carl Craig and Plastikman to name a few. Further influences span from Indian music, science fiction soundtracks, and the arpeggio laden early 80's Tv show themes... Under a bright light, these dark jewels, fashioned in solitude, reveal far subtler arrangements than found in his previous albums. Back to the future in a way... It includes a great Sylvester cover "I Need Somebody To Love Tonight". Vinyl version limited to 300 copies on black vinyl with deluxe download mp3 dropcard & pvc bag. Test it ;)

Junior Rafael is a 43 year old chicagoan of Puerto Rican descent. A music box regular in its mid 80's heyday, Junior started making his own tracks at the end of that decade, but his insistence on projecting his upfront sexuality through his music meant that he found it hard to get his tracks onto vinyl. These tracks (recorded in 1991) would have remained lost forever were it not for a chance meeting and discussion with one of the Mighty Robots. Junior is delighted that his music will finally find an audience, 16 years after he laid down the tracks..

Label : Clone 

we like moroder (rmxs) / 12"

Great remix of the Jupiter Black "We Like Moroder" release. 2 remixes by Divider and Starcluster (actually the same guys.. who delivered 2 of the coolest remixes!). The A-side is the Divider which is a real peak time version with a massive bassline. The flip gives us an amazing Starcluster remix which stays more true to the original: italo-disco style of Giorgio Moroder. Smooth 808 beats and a phat analogue basslines and spaced out synth lines. Check !

new deal

8.99€

Artist : K-Rock 

Label : Rephlex 

new deal / LP+7"

"New Deal" is an ace collection of oldschool electro (think of Drexciya & Dopplereffekt), techno and house with that all important braindance ingredient to fry the kids minds. 12 tracks cut on 12" and 7" that kicks off with the Jamie Principle vibed electro cut "Baby Wants To Ride", dark and brooding electro with classic dirt-rave basslines and sleazy vocal drops. "Eastern Promise" opens to a flurry of arcade firepower blips before the TR-808 drums kick in. Melodies straight from the irdial school and some well freestyle drum programming. "Black On White" drops the house energy, percolating light acid basslines fight with the 808's full range of presets, the all important cowbell taking centre stage. On the 7", Kelly is aided and abetted all the way by vocalist Linda Lovelace, 4 tracks spannered in the best way, jungle breakbeat 2step rave pop anthems one and all,"Up & Down, Up & Down" being the standout. Having previously released two 12"s on Ed-DMX's Breakin' label a release at last on his true home Rephlex is long overdue. In addition, the cover makes play with some late 80's hardcore b-boy style, reminding me of Chris Morris' parody on "The Day Today" as Fur-Q. Top value fun for all the freaks and a classic reminiscathon for us old'uns. Mental essential. ;)

12.99€

Artist : Kaa Antilope 

Label : Enfant Terrible 

vpro radionome - april 2 1982 / 12"

Kaa Antilope from Belgium is possibly one of the better kept secrets from the 80's. Known to few people but loved by those. The reason is simple... this band was unique with their wonderful neo romantic, playful and melancholy sound. Their songs are best described as experimental synth-pop with a poetic touch. Only one 7" record was released in 1982. Even today their music stands out with its very special sound of its own. There has not been a single other band since the 80's that can be compared to Kaa Antilope. This live studio session was done as part of the legendary RadioNome radioshow broadcasted by the Vpro in the early 80's. The session has been tranfered from the original tape and is edited and re-mastered to make it available for the ultimate listening pleasure the songs ask for. Limited to 500 copies !

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..

Kania Tieffer does not need an introduction... This ep was imagined and planned for a long time. In the end it came out as this: the last record ever by Kania Tieffer and the first record ever by the new project of the same musician, called Family Jewels. While Kania Tieffer was always crazy, twisted and trashy electro-pop, her new project Family Jewels is like a Crystal Castles zonked out of their heads on acid. So be prepared for this next attack!

Better get it quick ! Kansas City Prophets is an artist to look out for. The sound of the tracks are a kind of minimal compared with the rest of the releases on this label.

paradise island

9.79€

Artist : Karl Lukas Pettersson 

Label : Acido Records 

paradise island / 12"

The latest Acido release sees the full debut of Karl Lukas Pettersson, aka Gothenburg's premier electro exponent Lukas Karl Pettersson who previously featured on Dynamo Dreesen's label back in 2007 under his familiar Luke Eargoggle alias. As Karl Lukas Pettersson, the Swede is evidently looking to explore a sound less trodden with both "Paradise Island" and "Travel The World" crafty concoctions formed from various elements of primitive wave. These 2 tracks are essentially variations on the same idea. Both trundle along with leaden kicks and muddy synths, brilliantly offset by crystal clear twinkles of melody that occasionally cut through the mix. On both, a childlike voice eerily repeats the titular phrase. The chords are catchy, the sound design exquisitely imperfect. But as with Acido's best records, its the overall personality (at once campy and avant-garde) that makes these tracks so good ;)

Mechanical rain, black acid crystals and pagan rituals. Kaval is channeling a twisted scenario from a safe house. Look to the sky and watch a dazzling reality unfold. Rich synthesizer music for the enlightened listener. 'Sky Of Mirrors' is a seductive piece of occult soundtrack music made by Roberto Auser and Ian Martin. Eclipse music for eclipsed people! Soundtrack in the style of John Carpenter, David Lynch.. Essential ;)

1986 / 12"

Retro with a capital 'R', Kavinsky is the kind of guy you'd find donning a red-leather jacket, downing a can of Quatro then heading off out for a night down the local arcade. Aiming squarely at this period, "1986" ep is an homage of sorts to the year in question; bringing swathes of synths and coin-op aesthetics to bear on his thundering electro detonations. Welding together slivers of Vangelis, Moroder and Carpenter's finest soundtracks, the likes of "Wayfarer" and "Dead Cruiser" sound just how computer games should have; creaking under the weight of electronic muscularity and sonic excitement. Backed up by Ed Banger's Sebastian taking on previous single "Testarossa", this is a rose-tinted view of a decade that most of us remember primarily for Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds. Simply Atomic...

Kavinsky’s "Testarossa Autodrive" could be easily decribed as 'heroic house'. A fierce, edgy, powerful track that is getting the remix treatment from Detroit based Arpanet (aka Dopplereffekt) and Mr Oizo. Once again, expect the unexpected, but you can dance to it ! Arpanet "Nightdrive Rework" is a must for true electro lovers and is one of his best remixes. Sweaty ;)

The zombie strikes back with a new ep. After months of studio work on his forthcoming album, he & Record Makers have decided to release "Nightcall" as an apéritif. This is the 1st song Kavinsky provides vocals for, a duet you might say, featuring the zombie and his girlfriend, aka Lovefoxxx from CSS! The song was produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and mixed by SebastiAn. The remix of this song, by a mysterious Dustin N'Guyen, is an outstanding pop song that everyone can enjoy. On the other side, Kavinsky has produced the fantastic "Pacific Coast Highway", in which we follow a ghostcar on the highway. The remix job is by French avant-garde producer Jackson. His epic 9 minute long version is unmissable... Limited edition with gatefold cover. Hit!!

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 ;)

Artist : Keine Ahnung 

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.

Artist : Keyo Laboratories 

Label : Crème Organization 

keyo laboratories / 10"

Behind the alias Keyo Laboratories there is Sami Liuski also known as Bangkok Impact. This 10" is the new wave of discofutures, performs in the same way as Detroit's calculated misuse of Europop, all whispering and faux androgynous whiteness. The flip has 3 tracks in marked contrast, a sinister minimal killer, not fierce but dark in execution and feel, strings add an air of creeping menace, well spooky, into a short disco mixing tool. Lastly, a melodic vocodered houser with a late summer feel, a good builder for fashionatas.

dans

16.29€

Artist : Kim Ki O 

Label : Enfant Terrible 

dans / 12"

The Turkish girl band Kim Ki O was already present on the Enfant Terrible compilation "Radio Resistencia". Next to that they released 2 very limited cd-r’s by themselves and already toured in Scandinavia. "Dans" is the official debut of Kim Ki O and features 6 lo-fi pop songs which at times are extremely catchy but never too easy or slick in anyway. At other times the music is more tranquil and becomes hypnotic dream pop that will soothe you, but hasn’t a single dull moment. Kim Ki O’s music is perfect lo-fi indie pop with that vibrant touch of the modern metropolis Istanbul they come from. Very evident are the New Order inspired melancholy melodies, the Casiotone For The Painfully Alone like cheap and charming electronic rhythms and that special 4AD sort of quality throughout the songs. With this debut mini album the band launches themselves into the world of music. Kim Ki O is for sure a band to keep an eye on.. ;)

covered in dust

13.79€

Artist : Kindest Lines 

Label : Wierd Records 

covered in dust / LP

"Covered In Dust" is the debut Lp from Louisiana's Kindest Lines, opens suitably with a beat that sounds a lot like like an industrial rendition of The Ronettes 'Be My Baby'. Brian Wilson cited that song by the legendary New York girl group as the greatest pop recording ever, and many refer to it as the perfect example of Phil Spector's 'wall of sound' production. Those artists established many of the templates for how modern music is made, but what still stands out is the sense of that music having been simply dreamed-up. With organic washes of layered melodic guitars and lush songcraft, this New Orleans-based trio is definitely doing some dreaming of their own. Kindest Lines are blazing a unique path into an enchanting realm of darkened electronic indie pop that is at once welcoming and foreboding. Huge ;)

Artist : Kinetic Ideals 

Label : Dead Wax Records 

this face / 12"

In 1983, after the release of their last known output (the splendid 'A Personal View' ep), Kinetic Ideals recruited a new drummer, Patrick Duffy, firing their Oberheim DMX drum machine shortly after. With flesh and blood behind the kit again, new songs were written and 3 of them were recorded at Toronto's Wellesley Studios in the spring of 1984. The 'This Face' session contains some of their strongest material yet but back then no record company stepped up to provide the band a home and all the songs remained unreleased. Almost 30 years later, Dead Wax Records release here the 'This Face' ep, featuring the 3 session tracks, plus an additional song recorded at Toronto's Manta Sound studios later in the winter of 1985. They have been digitized from the original master tapes & carefully remastered to sound just great with all their original analogue glory. Patrick Duffy also designed the whole artwork for the release, which is presented in gorgeous clear vinyl, housed in a heavy matt finish sleeve with printed inner sleeve. A short run of 420 copies !

uno

17.39€

Artist : Kirlian Camera 

Label : Dark Entries 

uno / LP+7"

'Uno' is a collection of early recordings from seminal Italian electronic act Kirlian Camera. Keyboardist/vocalist Angelo Bergamini founded the project in Parma in 1979, initially naming it Suicide Commando, before discovering another project using the same name. By 1980, Angelo had recruited singer Simona Buja, keyboardist Fabrizio Chiari and bassist Mauro Montacchini. Their demo cassette, 'Dawn', attracted the attention of Italian Records, a popular independent label. The following year, Mauro left the band and was replaced by Giorgio Vecchi, and the band recorded their first mini-LP, 'Kirlian Camera'. 'Uno' compiles the 4 songs from the mini-LP on Side A and the 6 songs from the demo cassette on Side B. Also included is the bonus track "Minitech", originally recorded in 1981, presented for the 1st time on vinyl as a gold-stamped flexi-disc. Kirlian Camera's clean, minimalist new wave is marked by strong haunting melodies, slow moving synth washes, and stark, dramatic vocals. Housed in the original jacket featuring a painting of a royal Italian noble on the front and black and white photos of the band on the back. Each copy includes a 2-sided postcard with a never before seen photo of Angelo and Simona taken from an early concert. Must-Have ;)

helden platz

13.49€

Artist : Kirlian Camera 

Label : Dark Entries 

helden platz / 12"

'Helden Platz', a long out of print 12" maxi single from seminal Italian electronic act Kirlian Camera. Keyboardist/vocalist Angelo Bergamini founded the project in Parma in 1979 and named it after an electronic device that photographs the electromagnetic halo around objects and living beings. By 1980, Angelo had recruited singer Simona Buja, keyboardist Fabrizio Chiari, and bassist Mauro Montacchini. Their demo cassette, 'Dawn', attracted the attention of Italian Records, a popular independent label. Over the next few years the band would release their st mini-LP, 'Kirlian Camera', the full length 'It Doesn't Matter, Now' and the singles "Communicate", "Edges", and "Blue Room". The latter was a significant hit, eventually landing them a deal with Virgin Records. By 1987 the line up consisted of Angelo Bergamini on all instruments, Charlie Mallozzi on electronic drums and Simona Buja on vocals. Virgin wanted the band to provide another hit single in order to exploit the success of 'Blue Room', refusing to release the band's less commercial material. In 1987 the band went Lark Studio at Carimate Castle, Italy to record with italo-disco producer Oderso Rubini. Thanks to the insistence of Bergamini, the label agreed to release "Helden Platz", German for "Heroes' Square', in 1987. The song features Kirlian Camera's brand of dark wave, marked by haunting melodies, slow moving synth washes, and orchestral strings. The song features the stark, dramatic vocals of Simona Buja, who sings about the 'blue blood of winter' in a tale of Germany and Austria during World War II. Included here is the extended 12" mix, the 7" edit, plus the original B-side "Burial", an instrumental that evokes a funeral procession soundtrack. It is housed in the original jacket, featuring a photo of a headstone from Zentralfriedhof Cemetery in Vienna. Each copy includes a 2-sided postcard with lyrics and photos of the band.

After several albums on top labels Kraak and Conspiracy, KTAOABC releases their 5th album 'Weltuntergangsstimmung' on Zeal and OnderStroom Records. The new record isn't the drone folk album you might expect from the band. Their newest shows us a whole new and different side. Frontman Stef Heeren recorded the songs for 'Weltuntergangsstimmung' with an old drumm machine, analogue synthesizers and guitar. And An Pierlé adds wonderful backing vocals on a few songs. Kiss The Anus.. still is the hypnotising and apocalyptical band, but transformed overnight into a new new-wave band. Whaooo!!

desertofsameness / 12"

Kit n C.l.a.w.s. is a project by 2 experienced musicians in the fields of dance and psychedelic music. Teaming up was probably one of the better ideas they had for a long time as the music this duo serves us is simply amazing. Deep trance indulging moody house tracks with acid influences. Still this acid never becomes industrial as techno can be but stays on the psychedelic side of things. Slow trippy stuff to dance and dream away on. Headmusic for the dancefloor. Limited to 200 copies !

screams to god

13.99€

Artist : Kitchen & The Plastic Spoons 

Label : Dark Entries 

screams to god / LP

Kitchen And The Plastic Spoons formed at a basement rehearsal studio in Stockholm, Sweden during the spring of 1980. The band consisted of Anne Taivan (vocals), Helena Lönnqvist (synthesizer), Iggo Karlsson (synthesizer), Jackie Pazda (bass), and Mats Wigerdal (drums). After a few concerts, Kitchen booked some free studio time and recorded their 1st single "Serve You!" in 2 days. 6 months later Patrik Lindvall (guitar) joined the group and the band recorded their 2nd single "Ice Cream To God" in early 1981. Kitchen's sound was getting darker and heavier and so was the mood in the band. Anne shortly left and was replaced by Iodine Jupiter on vocals. This new line up recorded a few songs for local compilations. The band broke up in november 1981 before recording their debut LP. 'Screams To God' collects Kitchen And The Plastic Spoons 2 7" eps, 2 compilation tracks as well as 3 demos from 1980 never before released on vinyl. Kitchen were part of the new Diy generation starting bands, making self-produced singles and rapidly breaking up. Their sound echoes the speedy chaotic energy with the synthesizer as its driving pulse. Anne's vocals are barely understandable but they have a sense of urgency. They didn't sound like any other band in Sweden at the time, having more in common with American bands, Devo, The Screamers and Pere Ubu. The vinyl comes housed in a full color spot gloss jacket with a photo of Anne with bright magenta hair. Each LP includes an insert with liner notes, song descriptions and photos. Although the group burned out after a year, this compilation shows their energy and attitude to be just as liberating and unusual today. Nice one ;)

taking nothing seriously / LP

The music on 'Taking Nothing Seriously' is very emotional and personal. There is everything from great ambient tunes to hellish, distorted industrial madness reminiscent of powernoise band Haus Arafna, especially tracks like "Kill All Lifeforms" and "Push Yourself". Still Klangstabil also manages to weave atmospheric and melodic structures into the inferno, and this gives the whole album a lurking feeling of despair underneath the aggressive waves of sound. Rare collector Lp ;)

Artist : Klement 

Label : Ego Twister 

new life / LP

'New Life' is gathering 15 tracks from French producer and singer Klement, previously released on various labels between 2003 and 2009, along with yet unreleased titles. Get his first eponym ep, and the tracks from his label compilation Contre Coeur, and you will obtain a real anthology, the complete and essential works from Klement ! Everyone will find something in his retro futuristc anthems, at the same time witful and restless, or through one of his splendid cover track (the unexpected "The Stomp" from Old Dirty Bastard, or his own federative renditon of The Cure "Boys Don't Cry"). Against the trends and clichés of electro, the musical choices of Klement are strong. The use of a radical minimalism (sharp rythms, a few cuting edge synths, an inspired singing) leave us alone with the essence of his songs : crystal clear and heady melodies ("Derby", "Into Your Arms"). The kind you remember long after you left the dancefoor ;)

untitled

19.99€

Artist : Kline Coma Xero 

Label : Medical Records LLC 

untitled / LP

Debut full length release of Kline Coma Xero. A self-titled LP influenced largely by the sterile and isolated iconography of authors such as Philip K. Dick, William Gibson and JG Ballard (from whence the bands name is derived). Formed in 2012, Kline Coma Xero is a group whose work embraces elements of early minimal synth wave with distinctively thoughtful lyrics and evocative melodies. Kline Coma Xero's Tony Williams has had his roots planted in various projects in the past, spanning a realm of styles from experimental noise, tape loops and early industrial. Using a writing style that employs the use of hardware sequencers driving analog instruments rather than computers, Kline Coma Xero produces a uniquely oblique interpretation of past-meets-present in modern electronic music. Previously Kline Coma Xero debuted in 2013 with the track "Left Behind" which was included on the 'Circuit D'Actes 3' (La Forme Lente label) compilation which is the opening track on this LP. The 2nd track "Rewind" is amazingly catchy and reminiscent of the best hybrid of analog synth-pop overlaid with Front 242 style vocals. Other standout tracks are the 2nd side opener "Mannequins" with it's razor sharp lead synths as well as the dark and brooding "Casualty Ward". Kline Coma Xero will certainly appeal to fans of analog minimal synth, EBM, and the more melodic side of industrial as well as specific acts such as Fad Gadget, Suicide, John Foxx, or Martial Canterel. Presented on high-quality 180gr heavyweight colored splatter on opaque white vinyl and features a bonus LP insert. Limited edition.

Artist : Klingelton 17 

Label : No Label 

trümmertruppe / 7"

Klingelton 17 is one of the obscure 80's DDR bands in the field of NDW / minimal music. This 7" was pressed in the 90's but never really distributed and sold. The music of Klingelton 17 is a mix of NDW and authentic minimal, somewhat in the style of Matthias Schuster. The songs on this record were recorded during the mid/late 80's and breaths that atmosphere very well. "Trümmertruppe" is a long and extremely minimal track with a clear rhythm and some melodic elements. On top of that classic vocoder vocals are delivered. It is a very nice and catchy track you will recognize immediately as a relic of the 80's. On the B-side are 2 more tracks. "Ich Erhoffe More Ein Leben" is more playful as "Trümmertruppe" and a bit more new-wave inspired. This 7" is a cult piece, it is a great surprise it has been recovered after all these years. Only 150 copies were pressed so it is a true collector's piece ;)

A big forgotten Chicago club hit from 1984! Pre-house release from Knight Action which came out at the very beginning of electronic dance music. Before house was house... before techno was born and when club music was just called disco. "Single Girl" was a big hit in Chicago clubs like the Music Box and was played by Ron Hardy and all the Hotmix 5 guys (Farley, Mickey Oliver etc.) and its still a big collectors item. Made with the 1st electronic instruments and without any pretentions... just made for the fun of making music. "D-Rail" is one of the very 1st steps to jacking house music. Another (almost) forgotten piece of dance music!?

Koban is a storm that has been gathering over the Pacific Northwest since 2011. After an ep and full length recording behind them, the Vancouver-based duo is striking out again with a new 6-song ep on Weyrd Son Records this time, gaining sound and fury in these brooding new tracks. Koban naturally and seamlessly genre bend, their punk roots buried deep under layers of melded synth, goth and post-punk. This creates a unique sound which is simultaneously full and sparse, atmospheric and uneasy. A drum machine creates a baseline over which moody interchanging vocals and blown-out guitar noise quickly and organically oscillates. Their lyrics give a wink and nod to their influences and feature songs sung in French for an icy touch. Koban leave you with a feeling of being utterly new and a sense of déjà vu. Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies on 140gr black splatter vinyl.!

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..

A decade after conception it is now released on the Roman label. Each LP is numbered and comes with a custom-made cover. Pure Sh** !

untitled

14.29€

Artist : Konstrukcija 

Label : Brouillard Definitif 

untitled / LP

More than a side-project, Konstrukcija stemmed from the reunion of Stropu Jurka (Strops, VSKB, but also the radio show Intervilnis) & Gatis Druvaskalns (Starpliktuve, Celmlauzis) in spring 2011 when the latter returned from a 2-year long stay in the Netherlands. He brought his friend back a Casio MT-40, which he had bought for the modest sum of 5€. They started jamming and within a few days recorded several tracks for which the Casio, a Korg Monotron, an Estradin-230 and a diy noise box were utilized. In the end they came up with a full unreleased album. The texts allude to all their friends who have left Latvia to live abroad, as well as to those who have left forever by jumping from the cable-stayed bridge (Riga). Their sound is very reminiscent of the analogical minimal electronic wave in the vein of early pioneers such as Kraftwerk, El Aviador Dro or Yellow Magic Orchestra to which they added that indescribable Latvian frostbitten atmosphere from a country where the winter temperature may fall to -30º C and winter lasts for half of the year.. That was it officiall.. not until december 2012 when they started playing again in order to get prepared for a set which would be performed 2 months later in Paris, following an invitation from Les Sons Paranormaux. It is then that they very naturally thought of inviting Erlends Paičs (who had already been active within VSKB a few years earlier, most notoriously for a series of live sets programmed and organized by the above-mentioned organization). During the rehearsals of the set they partly covered their older tracks while improving their quality. By then a cozy relationship had been established between LSP and Thierry Müller, and the organization dared the band to once more cover a track by Ruth which had been played by some of the members a few years earlier, and for which the original singer would come on stage during the gig. Watchwords: "Polaroid/Roman/Photo" which has also been included here in its studio version. Back home they played one more set and that was it. That was when LSP and Brouillard Definitif offered them (in 2013) to release their debut album. New tracks were recorded and added to some older ones, this is what is presented here..

native state

9.99€

Artist : Kontravoid 

Label : Cititrax 

native state / 7"

6th release on Cititrax, Native State by Canadian artist Kontravoid. The name Kontravoid belongs on a limited run cassette circa 1980-something, the type of tape buried in lost upstate dustbins of pre-MIDI analog electronics, wedged between Cabaret Voltaire and Das Ding. The dark industrial and new-wave influences are strong on ex-Crystal Castles drummer Cam Findlay's new project—his voice is scary, like an echoing underwater growl—but the underlying pop melodies always afford a degree of breathing room. After departing as writer/producer for Toronto band Parallels, Findlay has settled into a music venture he can call his own, assuming the identity of this masked alter-ego for what appears to be a permanent ride. On his debut self-titled album, Kontravoid turns to analogue synths to create a dark, brooding pop masterpiece. His brilliant vocals emit a dystopic low-grown, often running through warped effects accompanied by exceptionally stirring arpeggiated synths and washes of sound. Modern touchstones could parallel the likes of John Maus or Trust, but Kontravoid's vision is a much more twisted one, embracing goth influences and yielding a monstrous result that is harder to define. Despite its sonic vampiricism, Kontravoid's music leaves plenty to dance and lose your mind to, but the imagination here goes way beyond these activities exclusively. The tracks presented here, Native State (stream the video) and Cut To Cleanse are exclusive 7" only versions. The record is pressed on clear blue vinyl and comes in a hand silkscreened sleeve, limited edition of 999 numbered copies.

Label : Tarantula X 

untitled / LP

Released back in the spring, the debut album from former Crystal Castles drummer Cameron Findlay's project Kontravoid has proven to be a lot more rewarding than we would have given it credit for at 1st blush. Our initial impression (that although it has some good moments the LP is kind of brief and homogenous) remain valid, but over multiple listens the flaws seem less glaring, and the character of the record more appealing. Arriving in the form of punky-electro by way of early post-industrial, Kontravoid establishes its template, runs with it, and bails before it grows stale or wearisome. One of the best album of 2012!

The more fanatical Frak fans out there will already be well aware of this latest release on Börft which sees group member Johan Sturesson donning his Kord guise for a quite excellent mini album of haywire electronics. 'Absence Of Fear' is his 1st solo release on Börft since 1998 !! Though there was a 7" issued through sub label Djuring Phonogram back in 2007, and is ripe with bleep laden electro and techno that benefits from the mastering skills of Andreas Tilliander and Jan Svensson. Across the 6 tracks Sturesson veers through moments of contemplation, abstraction and outright dancefloor brilliance with "Trainwreck" and "In Absence" cuts the more adventurous selectors will cherish. This is masterpiece for the synthetic smooth winter or anytime... Limited edition of 400 copies.

Label : Gooiland Elektro 

we live in this / 12"

The musician behind Kord is an original member of Swedish cult electronic/acid oufit Frak and producing music since the late 80's. With Kord he produces a more synth-pop minded kind of music (most of the time). For Gooiland Elektro he teamed up with his partner in crime/love and came up with this raw elektro ep. These tracks are the perfect mix of crazy and twisted electronic music (a signature of his Frak work) and dancefloor orientated sounds since the late 80's. So we get served unpolished dance tunes with hints of EBM, new beat and (minimal) elektro. Non stop primitive disco for sure! Limited to 200 copies on black vinyl !

But even nowadays, Kraftwerk remains very fresh. Always copied, Never egalized ! Terrific pure and precise minimal electro : emotional at its best. One of the earliest album of the band ! One of the most eclectic too. Including the universal theme : "Radio-Activity". New and under blister ;-)

These recordings are the result of an order passed for the 2000 Universal Exposition in Hannover. The sound remains really kraftwerkian, purely synthetic, always with this look on the huge past of this band (robotic sound, dancing, perfect melodies). The 3 different remixes of "Expo2000" are all really interesting and clearly identified. The very funky hit "Mix 2002" is a Must Have ! It seems like Time stopped in 1986, even 1991. Ralf and Florian's sensibilities remain the same as their early years. Good Dope !

rutinas

Artist : Kremlyn 

Label : Domestica 

rutinas / 10"

Kremlyn was a techno-pop duet which is not, obviously, the solution to urban boredom problems, is launched in Barcelona as something brilliant and unusual, astonishing for all they achieve despite having little means, but making the most of their limited resources. J.J., an 18-year-old boy with a keyboard and an organ, from which he plays the drum machine, as well as other effects, for which he is the only responsible because of his autodidactic investigation. Amongst all his songs, "Rutinas" stands out; it's an excellent composition which, with no doubt, should have reached the 1st position of hits parades if someone decides to edit and promote it. In Yazoo's techno-pop style, however, Kremlyn's future were not very clear, due to a slight passiveness showed by its components, which refrains their music from being as well-known as it deserves..

cellular electrique / the mosaic

Artist : Kris Tall / Beefcake 

Label : Thrill Beat Construction 

cellular electrique / the mosaic / LP

Interesting release on this most enigmatic of labels. This a split release between Kris Tall on A-side and Beefcake (aka Robag Whrume & Volker Kahl) on B-side. Both sides contain a mix of live instruments and electronic bips, with Kris Tall leaning towards more post rock and Beefcake more mixed up and varied with touches of straight electronica and some lovely almost purely classical sounds. Atmospheric and melancholic for the most part... and very nice too ;)
