After their synth-pop hit singles "Dreiklangs-Dimensionen" and "Rendezvous" released in 1980, Rheingold (aka Bodo Staiger, Lothar Manteuffel and Brigitte Kunze), produced 4 years later this more electro-synth "Computerbeat" 7". NDW at its best !

Label : EMI 

looks good on you / 12"

Rheingold (aka Bodo Staiger (Vocals, Guitar), Brigitte Kunze (Keyboards) and Lothar Manteuffel (Lyrics), was a German new wave band that existed between 1980-1984. They recorded the 3 records "Rheingold", "R." and "Dis-Tanz". Their biggest hits were "Dreiklangsdimensionen" and "FanFanFanatisch" but this more unknown single deserves also attention. Nice minimal synth-pop ;)

never lose your shadow


Artist : Richard H. Kirk 

Label : Minimal Wave 

never lose your shadow / 12"

We're honored to present a 12" ep of tracks from the archives of Sheffield based electronic music legend Richard H. Kirk, entitled "Never Lose Your Shadow". Kirk 1st came to prominence in the 70's as a member of the seminal industrial band Cabaret Voltaire. His 1st release as a solo artist, Disposable Half-Truths, came out in 1980 on Throbbing Gristle's Industrial Records label and since then he developed a solo career parallel to the band until its dissolution in 1994. On the ep, MW compile tracks originally recorded between 1978 and 1987, which have never before been released on vinyl. The title track, 'Never Lose Your Shadow' blurs the lines between harsh industrial, dance floor, and no wave. This is one we've been playing out for a while now and wondering why it hadn't been pressed on vinyl. The other 3 tracks are more experimental and reference ideas Kirk was exploring in Cabaret Voltaire at the time. When asked specifically about this collection, Kirk explains that 'none of the tracks were outtakes for Cabaret Voltaire, they were always solo tracks, although I think "Never Lose Your Shadow" was vey much a blueprint for the material that Cabaret Voltaire recorded for Virgin / Some Bizarre between 1983-85. The minimal sequencer / drum machine lockdown that I used later for Cabaret Voltaire was pioneered on this track. Lyrically, "Never Lose Your Shadow" was inspired by the 1971 speed freak road movie Vanishing Point, amongst other things'. The ep is limited to 999 hand-numbered copies!

Artist : Road 55 

Label : Eirkti 

untitled / 7"

Long before the end of colored light's merciless percussions in the sky, long after the juvenilia plans for survival amid sound... Coast continues washing up vigil in storm, continues washing up alertness within a confusing warren. Taking over from the self-titled album's nervous musical compositions (2012), Οdos 55 (Road 55) resurface analogous tension yet, generating a transition from mystery to reflective elation and vice versa. 2 new tracks, 2 new points within the plane of electro-synthetic wandering that recount minimalism. 1st, "Από την άκρη της νύχτας", ("From The Edge Of The Night"), an electronic composition that slowly roams its reasoning-sowing message while stretching sounds, extending ambiences. Following, the track entitled "Ο αόρατος άνθρωπος" ("The Invisible Man"), a straightforward sample of minimalistic punk, accordingly framed in noisy maneuvers. Available in a limited edition of 700 numbered black vinyl copies.



Artist : Roadking 

Label : Satamile 

ep / 12"

4 new tracks from the German electro producer Roadking (aka Frank Ruekert), also known as Unn of the Mikrolux and Elektrolux fames. Once again he turns the steam way up for these fat electro tracks written especially for Satamile. Clean snapping breaks with lots of cool edits, breakdowns, vocoder and pumping bass that will keep the listeners and Dj's entertained for a long time !

I'm normal


Artist : Robert Derby 

Label : Cachalot Records 

I'm normal / LP

This early one-man album demonstrates what could be done in the pre-tech days by a crafty auteur with 2 tape decks, a basement and a lot of patience. Far worse-sounding albums have been recorded by rooms full of session pros in 32-track studios. If you dig LMNOP's catchy pop, then you'll enjoy Derby's light rock-pop which benefits from skillful arrangements and his multi instrumental prowess; underdeveloped material and a samey blandness are the record's shortcomings. Great album ;-D

faceless future


Artist : Roberto Auser 

Label : Enfant Terrible 

faceless future / LP

Roberto Auser is known for his wide range of sounds and releases on Viewlexx and his own Ausland label. Next to that he is part of Kaval (Vrystaete). Even though his releases until now go from italo-disco inspired electro to exotica and dark jazz influenced electronics his production is always rather smooth. For Enfant Terrible he shows his raw and dirty side. 'Faceless Future' is an oldschool minimal elektro record done with analogue synths with a real industrial and post-punk attitude. This record pays tribute to (early) Cabaret Voltaire, (early) Front 242 and (later-day) Le Syndicat Electronique. Simply minimal electronics as it should sound.. Rough and unpolished. Mini LP limited to 250 copies !

house girl


Artist : Rodney Bakerr 

Label : Clone Classic Cuts 

house girl / 12"

Very obscure house track of Rodney Bakerr (aka Mystic) released almost 20 years ago with a macho classic house bassline and amazing 303. Comes as original version (very raw and intense), Mike Dunn Mix (with that amazing 303 bassline!) and a new edit made for modern club use by Serge from Clone Records & Alden Tyrell. Very much recommended..!

Artist : Roithamer

the parasite / LP

Analogue-sounds and vocoder-voice, recorded 2007-2008 in Münster (Germany). All lyrics are taken from the book "The Parasite" by Michel Serres. Published by the University of Minnesota Press in 2007. Originally published as "Le Parasite" (Grasset & Fasquelle, 1980). Roithamer noise is a tribute to his work. A record not to be missed !

jumpin 2 conclusions ep


Artist : Roko Dragonbreath 

Label : Black Label 

jumpin 2 conclusions ep / 12"

A one man show doing electro that sounds very reminiscent of Comtron and Japanese Telecom. The title track on the other hand is something of a crossover between New Kids On The Block and Drexciya. And we mean that in a good way ! "Jumpin 2 Conclusions" is simply amazing, we love it. If you like the Seymour Bits 12" on Klakson then you definately need this too. Highly Recommended !

anthems for the micro-age


Artist : Roladex 

Label : Medical Records LLC 

anthems for the micro-age / LP

2nd contemporary artist release with Roladex. Imagine Kraftwerk playing Steven Merritt songs. Roladex was formed in Texas by Tyler Jacobsen & Elyssa Dianne. Producer/member, Tyler Jacobsen holds an MFA in Electronic Art and this becomes apparent as they find lyrical and musical inspiration through the films of David Cronenberg and John Carpenter, the works of authors such as J.G Ballard as well as video artists such as Vito Acconci and Nam June Paik. Jacobsen has been on a hiatus from his work as college art professor since the formation of the group. Using an arsenal of analog instruments, Roladex nostalgically borrows ideas from music of the past to carefully craft a unique brand of futuristic-mechanized pop, with an emphasis on songwriting and layered production. Weaving sparse, sequenced arpeggios into fuzzy bass and bubbly melodies to create a bed of sound where they layout a somehow bright melancholia. Part minimal synth-wave, part dream pop, Roladex fits nicely with other non-traditional pop acts such as Ariel Pink as well as Synth contemporaries like Police Des Moeurs and Black Marble. At times their music cold and moody, at others it is bright and dimly warm. Themes such as nuclear war, cosmology, false memories and technology become apparent as the listener plays through the LP. Fans of early Wire (esp 154), Drinking Electricity, Fad Gadget and even noisy 90's shoegaze are sure to enjoy. Presented on high-quality 180gr heavyweight electric blue transparent vinyl and features a bonus LP insert with lyrics. Mastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK. Limited edition.

Great new minimal music. On this 7" you will find 3 tracks somewhere between minimal synth and minimal electro. Featured is the instant hit "Plaza de America" in a catchy early El Aviador Dro style !

tear garden


Artist : Rossetti's Compass 

Label : No Emb Blanc 

tear garden / 12"

Rossetti's Compass is a dark electronic project originally created by Mark Warner, a former member of Sudeten Creche and Touching The Void and joined by Per Aksel Lundgreen. Mark Warner is a former member of Sudeten Creche and a current member of Touching the Void with Andy Oppenheimer. He created Rossetti's Compass in 2010 to allow exploration of different directions in music ranging for pure synth-pop through to dark and menacing electro. As the name, Rossetti's Compass, suggests, it both encompasses and points to a direction. A direction dictated by one's heart that doesn't need to conventionally conform to the standards dictated by the 'Art' establishment and one driven by passion, like the pre-raphaelite brotherhood founded in 1848.

the temple of the 13th tribe


Artist : Royal Family and The Poor 

Label : Mannequin 

the temple of the 13th tribe / LP

The Royal Family & The Poor is the nomenclature adopted by Mike Keane, who recorded for Factory Records between 1980 and 1986. 'The Project Phase 1 - The Temple Of The 13th Tribe', released in 1984 was produced in Manchester by Joy Divison and New Order bassist Peter Hook. Featuring the violinist John Neesham (of Walking Seeds and Mel-o-Tones) and the keyboard player Lita Hira from labelmates Stockholm Monsters, the album was done only after plenty of ups and downs in Keane's own life as well as numerous personnel shifts and incarnations, but the end results were a sometimes delicate and often enthralling combination. The combination of TR 808 and other drums, reverbed vocals, and aural mystery is all permeated by Keane's interest in the occult, while Hook's technological know-how adds a sharp rhythmic punch to tracks such as "Dark And Light", "Radio Egypt" and "Discipline". Other tracks include one of Mike Keane's best known songs, the affecting ballad "I Love You (Restrained In A Moment)", and the sinister, vocodered "Motherland". Perhaps the most misunderstood band to record for Factory Records, The Royal Family and The Poor remain for many an (oc)cult enigma, releasing only 4 albums in 2 decades, and rarely performing live after 1984. A lost classic, highly recommended for fans of Joy Division, New Order, Section 25, Durutti Column, Death In June. 1st vinyl reissue for the 30th year anniversary. Collectible limited edition of 500 copies.

black sabbath (the three faces of fear)


Artist : Rude 66 

Label : Crème Organization 

black sabbath (the three faces of fear) / 12"

This the night when fear and death walk hand in hand! Rude 66 has turned to the path of evil with deep malignant industrial electro. Trademark dirty brown melodies and the vocoded chants of the Chicagoan Angel of Despair make these hypnotic tracks instantly recognizable, and a worthy addition to the Rude 66 legacy. Easily his most consistent EP to date !

Rude 66 with another strong release. Classy disco with phat basslines and sexy vocoders. Nicolas Ccourtin delivers a super sweet remix that is even sharper then the original track. Already getting support and charted by guys such as Prins Thomas and many others !

sadistic tendencies


Artist : Rude 66 

Label : Creme Organization 

sadistic tendencies / 2x12"

After a wait of 15 years and numerous 12", ep's, random compilation tracks and remixes; Rude 66 has finally finished a full length album and dare we say it's his most cohesive work to date ? "Sadistic Tendencies" begins where 2005's "Three Faces of Fear ep" ended, with 18 tracks that slide like snails on the edge of straight razors, exploring the dark side of the human condition. Thematically connected, deep, dark and mind bendingly analogue, "Sadistic Tendencies" is both tense and full of release, sometimes brooding and encroaching at other times exploding into throbbing synth laden dancefloor bombs. Superlatives aside, "Sadistic Tendencies" works exceptionally well as an album and is one of those rare 70 minute journey's that can be enjoyed from beginning to end. Massive..

Artist : Rude 66 

Label : Vynalogica

Rude 66 found the key to the impresive CEM studio in Amsterdam and got some free studio time in their analogue studio like all artists on the Vynalogica label. He got out with some bad ass "Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass" inspired tracks ! Phat rolling basslines, catchy melodies and vocoders. Probably one of the stronger releases on the Vynalogica label..!

Artist : Rude 66 

Label : Gooiland Elektro 

under cover of the night / 12"

Rude 66 does not need an introduction... This Dutch acid and elektro veteran has been around for a long time. Being part of the old school acid scene from The Hague with releases on legendary label Acid Planet and he is one of the originals (again) when it comes to the new-wave of electro in the late 90's. Especially for Gooiland Elektro he has created this dark elektro ep. 2 vocals tracks on the A-side with Beta Evers and Sololust appearing as partners in crime, and on the B-side 2 instrumental almost trance like tracks. This is were elektro, acid (beat) and a touch of old school gothic come together!

the art dance


Artist : Ruins 

Label : Minimal Wave 

the art dance / LP

Full length Lp by Ruins, an Italian electro-wave duo. Ruins formed in Mestre in 1978 with the intention of experimenting with electronic devices and mixed media. They mainly created music out of self-expression without any intention of joining the mainstream. They were interested in multimedia and had a strong visual aesthetic apparent via their album art, videos and projections. The classic hit "Fire" is one of our favorites to date, so powerful with its great energy and beautiful production. It’s where italo meets minimal-wave. This Lp entitled "The Art Dance" features a collection of songs, some previously released, others never released before (amongst them a dub version of "Sexual Desire" called "Pure Desire"), pressed on 180gram vinyl and housed in a glossy gatefold jacket lined with the band's history and photos. Essential..!

mon pote / mescalito


Artist : Ruth 

Label : Poutre Apparente 

mon pote / mescalito / 7"

New release from the parisian label Poutre Apparente by the french producer Ruth. This 7" contains two tracks, the very rare "Mescalito" wich was initially released on the legendary French punk compilation "125 grammes de 33 1/3 tours" (Oxygène) and the unreleased "Mon pote". More punk-rock oriented than "Polaroid/Roman/Photo" but still great. Rock n' Roll baby !



Artist : Ruth 

Label : Angular Recording Corporation 

polaroïd/roman/photo / LP

Originally released on Paris Records in 1985 Ruth's Lp sold just 50 copies and was relegated to obscurity until the track "Polaroïd/Roman/Photo" started appearing on bootlegs and compilations in the early 00's, slowly becoming the cult synth-pop classic it is nowadays. An original copy goes for upwards of €300 on eBay and Ruth are a shining light from an oft forgotten music scene that is becoming increasingly influential today. Ruth was the brainchild of Thierry Müller, a photographer and graphic artist from Paris who drew his inspiration from bands and artists like Brian Eno, Stockhausen, Pere Ubu, Neu, Velvet Underground and Kraftwerk. In the late 70's he began to work on Ruth, releasing the lone album Polaroïd/Roman/Photo in 1985. The line up of Ruth was collaborative and fluid, brass mingles with prototype drum machines, and squalling experimentation sits alongside sultry French girls across 40 minutes of edgy pop innovation that sounds remarkably undated alongside contemporary pop music. From the jittery "Thriller" with its telephone sound samples and an ever ascending synth, to the lanquid "Mabelle", the cover of Can's "She Brings The Rain", and the sexy soiree of playful vocals and alluring brass that is "Polaroïd/Roman/Photo", this is an album that is now ready to be represented for the attention is deserves. This 25th anniversary deluxe special edition reissue comes in a gatefold sleeve on transparent scarlet vinyl, and features a 12 page booklet of lyrics and photos and download codes for a digital version of the album which includes six bonus tracks. Simply Essential !!

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..

Their 1st LP is a highly anticipated release: "An analogue incarnation of Rustie taking a couple of notes from Eduard Artemiev's poetic account of a supernova imploding upon itself in a storm of strobe lights which are but morse signals from God's ship as it sails across the empty black sludge of space, annotations in a sheet music for a jam bound to send Astronomers all over the planet into a frenzy of air keyboard slapping and knob twiddling"-20 Jazz Funk Greats Adam Jones, Kyle Dixon, Mark Donica, Michael Stein form the analog synth purist band S U R V I V E, considered as one of Austin's most important live electronic mainstays.

30th anniversary: 1980-1983


Artist : S.M. Nurse 

Label : Domestica 

30th anniversary: 1980-1983 / 10"

Around 1980 Menko Konings started the legendary Amsterdam underground formation S.M. Nurse, 1st together with Jos Jak and later also with Anneke Stempher. S.M. Nurse experimented with collage-like music and were inspired by N.Y.-ultra, disco e.g. The band mainly performed in the Amsterdam ultra-circuit, such as Oktopus on the Keizersgracht and D-Day in Paradiso. They also performed at clubs and discotheques such as Mazzo on the Rozengracht and the transgender nightclub Madame Arthur in the Warmoesstraat. Pretty soon, S.M. Nurse was noticed by radio programme maker Richard Zeilstra from the Dutch broadcaster the VPRO and they were played regularly on radio programmes such as RadioNome and Spleen. They performed live on radio in the villa of the VPRO in Hilversum. They also contributed to the theme cassette 'Turkish Delight' of Van Kaye & Ignit's tapes and record label Ding Dong. Among releases were a live registration on a bootleg cassette, at the time available at Staalplaat, and a cassette of S.M. Nurse on the independent label Top Tape. At the end of 1983, S.M. Nurse split up. Anneke Stempher and Jos Jak recorded a cassette for TopTape under the name Incredible Coop. Menko Konings continued solo under the name eM. He also started the formation No Honey From These with Robby Horsfall. Top Tape released several cassettes and cd's from eM. as well as No Honey From These. Presented in a hand-made silk-screen printed cover sleeve. It includes a leaflet. Limited edition of 350 numbered copies only.

hometape recordings 1981-1983 / LP

S.M. Nurse with Menko Konings (active as eM. and co-founder of S.M. Nurse) wouldn't leave our audience indifferent, but it's so difficult to guess how far a group can reach, 30 years after their splitting up, taking into account that about 2 years ago very few people knew them. This is precisely the kind of projects which fulfill us; we are looking forward to them! And this is one of the reasons why Domestica Records was born 4 years ago. Here is their 2nd collaboration with S.M. Nurse; 'Hometape Recordings 1981-1983', a compilation of the best songs recorded in the studio between 1981 & 1983, and never before edited in vinyl format and a short biography by S.M. Nurse: Around 1980 Menko Konings (eM.) started the Dutch underground formation S.M. Nurse, first together with Jos Jak and later also with Anneke Stempher. S.M.

real italian occult terrorism / LP

Reno. 2017. Steeples stab silhouettes into a blood stained night sky. Alessandro Parisi and Adamennon don their ceremonial cloaks for a mini album of Appennino's forests tinted terror. 8 tracks make up 'Real Italian Occult Terrorism', 8 tracks that will bring you to a world of disappearances, ritualistic murders and only one possible culprit: Sacrestia Del Santissimo Sangue. From sheathed divinity to opulent baseness, this LP is a deep and chilling work of movie score dark arts.

Artist : Sally Dige 

Label : Fabrika Records 

untitled / 7"

Sally Dige is a new artist based in Vancouver, Canada. Her 1st track, "Immaculate Deception" was released on YouTube at the end of September 2011, and received worldwide enthusiasm and recognition. Her inspiration for this project was to couple both the abstract with the linear; to take abstract sounds and atmospheric noise and draw them into a linear pop song. "Immaculate Deception" and "Doppelgänger" are the 1st tracks to be released to the public. Fabrika Records will be releasing the tracks on a limited run of 300 vinyl copies. The 1st one, from the new Fabrika single series!

hard to please


Artist : Sally Dige 

Label : Night School 

hard to please / LP

Consolidating 2 years of solo work, 'Hard To Please' is the debut album by Canadian polymath Sally Dige. 1st coming to prominence in the synth-wave scene with an elusive, meta-persona in a blur of homemade costumes, Dige's world has grown to encompass visual art, theatre and design elements. Most surprising on her long-awaited debut however is the occasional removal of the various masks and characters Dige has played to date, revealing something more tangible and fragile underneath.'Hard To Please' still revels in a darkly thrilling, italo-disco pop music, awash with dry ice and hidden in shadow, most personified on the instant classic "Immaculate Deception". However, on the long, nocturnal walk home Dige begins to sing of loneliness, being lost, the transience of our relationships. Attention to detail is paramount. On the title-track the crisp early 80's, swooning bass line duets with Dige's desperate plea to a lover fading into the distance, a presence lamented with even more pathos on the towering, early-4AD-esque, slow-burner "Your Girl". It's a new fragility that effortlessly manages to convey a luxurious, inescapable sensuality at the same time. Clear vinyl limited to 300 copies. Including download code.

holding on


Artist : Sally Dige 

Label : Avant! 

holding on / LP

Sally Dige is a multidisciplinary artist known for her darkly poetic yet highly danceable electro-pop songs, DiY stylistic videos, design and visual art. 'Holding On' is Sally's 2nd album that was created during the time of intense inner turmoil. These are songs written for dancefloors but are sung about loneliness, death and the meaninglessness of existence. Sally's work tows the line between a blissful innocence and a heavy darkness. Think Gina X flavored post punk-disco rubbing against Twitch-era Ministry's lost Sade collab or Enya on LSD after a break up. LP comes in printed innersleeve with lyrics.



Artist : Sam Rosenthal 

Label : Mannequin 

tanzmusik / LP

Reissue of one of the top minimal synth Holy Grails out of there. 'Tanzmusik' is the 1st LP from Sam Rosenthal, boss of the historic Projekt Records label and mind of one of the most influential darkwave acts coming out of the US, Black Tape For A Blue Girl. Originally released in March 1985 and completely recorded at home on a 4-track TEAC-2340 with a super minimal setup (Korg Poly 61, Realistic Moog, Boss Dr-110 and some effects), the vinyl release was limited to 250 copies, with a tanish card glued to a white LP jacket. The album continues in the electronic mood-music tradition established by Sam on the Projekt Electronic Amerika cassettes, with the added intriques of the drum-computer, exploring the realms of electronic music that the critics have compared to Tangerine Dream, O.M.D. and Brian Eno. Black Tape for a Blue Girl, begin in 1986 after his move from Florida to California, serves as a vehicle for Rosenthal's musical vision. Its signature combination of gothic, ethereal, ambient and neo-classical elements has explored existential themes of loves lost and passions yet to come. After his early electronic work represented on 'Tanzmusik', his music has grown into a full-fledged band, whose members revolve around Rosenthal's subtle electronic foundation. In 1996, Rosenthal released his debut novel, 'The First Pain To Linger', which sold 10,000 self-released copies. In 2011, Rosenthal began work on his 2nd book, 'Rye', an erotic novel which will be self-published in the fall of 2012. Standard vinyl release limited to 500 copies..

still born alive / 2x12"

Sand's (aka Tim Wright, John Richards, Hilary Jeffrey, Neil Griffith & Rowan Oliver) second album "Still Born Alive" is a mix of cinematic, electronic, dance, techno, funk elements to create their own sound. This Uk band musically walk the line between different worlds. They have played with, on the one hand, dance artists such as Robert Hood, Patrick Pulsinger, Andy Weatherall and Carl Craig and on the other hand with groups such as God Speed You Black Emperor, Squarepusher , Add N to X and ESG. Sand play diverse live events. They have performed on stage with the Karas Dance Company in Tokyo (where they played onstage with, amongst other things, goats, chickens, cows and rabbits!), and live at the Vienna Opera House with techno ace Patrick Pulsinger. Sand's music has been described as cinematic musical soundscapes. Unique...

want need


Artist : Sandra Electronics 

Label : Minimal Wave 

want need / 12"

6-song ep by the UK/US duo Sandra Electronics. Originally formed as Sandra Plays Electronics by Karl O'Connor (aka Regis) in 1988, the project has evolved over the years to become a collaborative endeavor with Juan Mendez (aka Silent Servant). 3 of the tracks were 1st released as an 'Untitled' 10" on Downwards in 2010, and the record quickly sold out. Those songs have been re-edited and remastered for this ep, and 3 more rare demos and live versions have been added. The songs can be described as hypnotic industrial electronic mantras with enigmatic keyboards and treated vocals. Each track draws the listener in, with its repetitive psychedelic percussion and dark affected vocal. The record is a hand-numbered edition of 999 copies pressed on 180gr ultra clear vinyl, and housed in a high quality heavy weight printed sleeve featuring a vintage photograph of Samia Gamal.

Label : Downwards 

facewash / clean air / 7"

Not much info on this obscure split 7"ep released on the prolific UK Downwards label. A-side is clearly minimal-synth wave orientated whereas B-side is more a kind of ritual abstract indusctrial tune. Not to be missed ;)

her needs


Artist : Sandra Plays Electronics 

Label : Minimal Wave 

her needs / 7"

7" release of primitive Diy electronics by Sandra Plays Electronics, a project founded by Karl O’Connor (Regis) whilst he was a teenager living in Birmingham, England in the 80's. O’Connor, mostly known for his pioneering work in the techno field (as Regis, Sandwell District, British Murder Boys, Ugandan Methods and various other entities) as well as his Downwards label, began playing and recording his own music when he was 16 years old. He collaborated with friends performing in short-lived bands such as Family Sex and also recorded on his own as Sandra Plays Electronics. He was heavily influenced by D.A.F., Liaisons Dangereuses, Cabaret Voltaire and Soft Cell, to name a few and would eventually collaborate with Robert Görl and also Chrislo Haas in the late 90's. The tracks we are presenting here are 2 versions of the same song, "Her Needs", both recorded in Birmingham, England. The 1st was recorded in 1988 during soundcheck at the College of Food And Domestic Arts and the second was recorded in 1999 (from the Man Has Responsibilities session) at the Ice House. Pressed on heavy weight 70gr ultra clear vinyl, the 7" is housed in a matte double sided printed foldover sleeve. Limited to 999 hand-numbered copies.

suggestive boy


Artist : Saralunden 

Label : Gooiland Elektro 

suggestive boy / 12"

Among many other things Saralunden proves to be a dismal disco star. On this ep she sounds like a stripped down and darker counterpart of Sally Shapiro, presenting moody and sexy music which is in some ways similar to the italo influenced stuff Chromatics is doing, and with the same twisted erotic vibe of Pulp. This is dirty disco and we like to dance to it and make out on it. Limited to 200 copies !

fat boy


Artist : Saralunden vs. Tobias Bernstrup 

Label : Falco Invernale Records 

fat boy / 12"

Great synth tunes crafted by this sensitive and inspired Swedish team.. Ranging from synth-driven chanson to more italo and new-wave influenced territories, again beautiful melodies and arrangements enlightening the wonderful cold-warm and moving Sara's voice. Tip !!

Artist : Savage 

Label : ZYX 

don't cry tonight / 12"

Classic italo-disco track by Savage. Among Legowelt ten's all time favorite songs ! Slow and fat sounds with a heady melody. More than evolutive, a true romantic story in space breaks ! B-side : Intrumental. BOUM***

area of violence


Artist : Savage Grounds 

Label : Enfant Terrible 

area of violence / 12"

Savage Grounds released their 1st 3 records with Lux Rec., of which one of the members from this Swiss duo is the label boss. This new ep is the 1st release coming out elsewhere. Savage Grounds have created a sound of their own. A sort of post-techno which combines elements of techno, elektro, EBM, acid and industrial. But these tracks will for sure also appeal to lovers of analogue synth music. The whole ep sounds like it has been recorded in an one take synth jam. Raw and fierce synth sounds for the body and soul. Edition of 250 copies, screen printed in black & gold sleeve !

la vida sigue igual


Artist : Savage Hymn 

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.

Boiled down to it's essential elements, this electro brings the cold clinical conumdrum. Quality, clean, clear, precise production as usual with this prolific Uk electro producer. Easy lol



Artist : Scape One 

Label : Scsi-Av 

submolecularnanotechrhythmicprinciples / 12"

Mini album with 8 futuristic dark & funky electro tracks. What we find here is just pure dynamite! "The Butterfly Effect" has an immense slant on the pleasures of gorge deep, squelchy vocodered electro, out and out sound system shockout with an ominous building quality. Raw !

fizzy soda


Artist : Scape One 

Label : Emoticon 

fizzy soda / 12"

Scape One, aka south coast based UK producer Kurt Baggaley, is one of the rising stars of the international electro scene, thanks in no small part to a series of acclaimed releases on labels such as World Electric, Mass Transit, Satamile and Electrix. Now a 4 track ep which hosts a range of styles & moods. "Fizzy Soda" kicks off with warm synths and funk breaks, simultaneously quirky and smooth. "Mindbridge" is slightly darker and more experimental, while on the flip "Avatar" aims for the dancefloor with pulses of pure electric funk. "Utopian Etude" closes off with gentle Plaid styled synth arpeggios and warm chords. Another release that is worthwhile holding the Emoticon name. Tip !

Label :  

the future…it will never be the same / 12"

In the mid 90s, under the influence of Aux 88 and Drexciya, Scape One released some of the most seminal electro records of the day. This ep sees Scape One look back to the roots of the pure electro sound and inject it with some sci-fi futurism. 808 rhythms which would sound at home in an 80's old school electro production are updated, retrofitted and laid out on some hi-tech sounds originating from deep within Scape One's studio. One for electro freaks (past, present, future) looking for straight up unhinged metallic funk. According to us, probably the best release from this artist ;)

Artist : Scape One 

Label : Tomorrow 

not human ep / 12"

Scape One needs no introduction, from breakdancing to Bambaataa’s "Planet Rock" on BBC Tv in the early 80's which sparked an interest in electro music. During the mid 90's being influenced by Aux88 and Drexciya, he teamed up Transparent Sound to release some of the most seminal electro records of the time. This ep sees Scape One look back to the roots of the pure electro sound and inject it with some sci-fi futurism. 808 rhythms which would sound at home in an 80's old school electro production are updated, retrofitted and laid out on some hi-tech sounds deep from within Scape One’s studio. Quality production ;)

eternal return


Artist : Scarlet Architect 

Label : Genetic Music 

eternal return / LP+CD

Genetic Music load up a real new-wave bullet, or 11 of them to be precise, from the very little known Scarlet Architect. Compiling the group's only release (an eponymous 4-track zinger issued in 1982 thru Coalition Records), together with 7 previously unreleased peaches from the same era, this is in effect their debut LP, exhibiting sharpened drum machine/dancefloor instincts coupled with an arch pop sound. Vocals are stately but almost cabaret in a sophisticated, ambiguous manner, whilst their grooves are slick and tight, layered with melodic synth hooks, at best in the eerie, Tuxedomoon-alike "Monetary Options", whilst the perkier funk of "Dance 'Til Dawn" recalls that Tomo Akikawabaya reissue on Minimal Wave and "Action Painting" sports some mental fusion of Prince and Devo by way of Russ Abott that needs to be heard to be believed.



Artist : Schaltkreis Wassermann 

Label : Private Records 

psychotron / LP

30 years after the 1st release in 1982 the 'Psychotron' album has been repressed as a limited remastered collector edition by Private Records. The special thing about this release is not only the fact that this repress is an official and exact vinyl reproduction of the valuable cosmic, minimal synth cult album. Only for this release PJ Wassermann dubbed the recording with high end equipment from the original old analog tape which resulted in an audio quality that could be easily described as audiophile. Schaltkreis Wassermann's 'Psychotron' as you never heard it before! Huge..



Artist : Schedelvreter 

Label : Minimal Wave 

hunker / 10"

Here is a limited edition hand-silkscreened 10" of Schedelvreter, the Dutch side project of brilliant minimal synth pioneer Danny Bosten (aka Das Ding). The 7 tracks were originally recorded in Danny's home studio in the Netherlands and self-released on a cassette entitled 'Hunker' via his Tear Apart Tapes label in 1985. Unlike Das Ding, Schedelvreter is not pattern-based or sequenced, the synth sounds are hand played over a collage of found sounds. At the time, Danny was experimenting with a Crumar synth that was falling apart, and would sporadically create sounds that were like human voices. He created massive drum sounds by layering noise, using leftover 4-track additions in reverse and some live drum recordings courtesy of his brother's tapes. The end result feels narrative and filmic, like the soundtrack to an imaginary apocalyptic movie: bleak & desolate. Be fast to grab this limited to 999 hand-silkscreened numbered copies pressed on black medium weight vinyl ;)

dunkel vor den augen uns


Artist : Schwefelgelb 

Label : Gooiland Elektro 

dunkel vor den augen uns / 12"

Schwefelgelb is a techno duo from Berlin, but they play techno in their own way... This is Großstadtmusik, like an updated version of DAF. Techno Body Music if you want it or not; raw proto EBM but done with the aesthetics and technology of today, and moving into bleepy techno in the later-day LFO style. But more important, this is non-stop decadent party music. :D

Artist : Scorpion Violente 

Label : Bruit Direct Disques 

untitled / 12"

Here is the follow up to the debut split 7" of this band together with The Dreams on Hex Grammofoonplaten. A 12" ep with 3 tracks of electronic music that is as punk as electronic music can get ! Minimalistic and rough synth-punk in late 70's - early 80's style. Think ICK, Crash Course In Science but with a bit of a weird touch from time to time... Really nice release by this Parisian label !



Artist : Scorpion Violente 

Label : Avant! 

uberschleiss / LP

Scorpion Violente is gay beast from France obsessed with analogue trash electronics and bad sexual habits. After unleashing a first 7" split the great 12" "Rome Violente" on Bruit Direct, you had the pleasure to meet on your path earlier this year, this 2-headed monster gets its 1st full-length album out right now on Avant!. This Lp features 8 longs tracks of pure mental disease from the middle of nowhere. Musically speaking this is a sort of sick mix between Giorgio Moroder italo-disco, the paranoid minimal wave performed by Suicide in 1977 and the early industrial-wave electronics by Cabaret Voltaire. Comes in full color sleeve plus insert with awesome artwork and nasty lyrics, and secret engraved message. 2nd pressing edition of 300 copies on red vinyl for your obnoxious taste ;)

the rapist


Artist : Scorpion Violente 

Label : Teenage Menopause Records 

the rapist / LP

After a 1st remarkable effort in 2010, the punks with synths of Scorpion Violente return with the mini-LP 'The Rapist' on Teenage Menopause. Scorpion Violente is a good provocative lexical field: 'The Rapist' thus, but also tracks as "Fugue De Pute Mineure", "The Cherrypopper".. combined with cheap 80's porn pictures. The mosellan duet digs the same groove since its debuts: dirty synths, military beatbox and scattered voices lost for humanity. That smells warm beer. It feels debauchery. It is glaucous as a backroom of Budapest. But nevertheless this is so good! From the first notes of "Pumping Iron", the poison infiltrates, insidiously. Melodies picked by Scorpion Violente are simply unstoppable. You have only one will: dance, but guts sight. In the middle of the mini-LP, appears the tearing UFO "Strychnine". Almost pop. Rather moving. Follows the eponymic piece "The Rapist", which finally turns out to be the softest track of the record in spite of its threatening title. We assist a high Mass psyche of more than 11 minutes on the dancefloor. High sensitive guys they are ;)

the stalker


Artist : Scorpion Violente 

Label : Bruit Direct Disques 

the stalker / 12"

A flaming tribute to the peaks of low budget Italian crime flicks and to synthwave as lubed-up as we need, poisoned with synthetic drugs and the rust from circuit boards, Scorpion Violente are the epitome of everything the entrepreneurial divertimento generation hate. Feeling up their synths with all the vigor of a manic depressive on a downward slope, our 2 hosts emit their dirty feedback-washed discharge, adding Ich Bin and Le Syndicat Electronique to their holiday activity books. The tempo is even slower than before, with echoes more distant than In Aeternum Vale and Ike Yard dripping from their stabbing loops. Litanies almost crashing into chasms ooze in this cold cyclo-rhythmic blues, sure to make Alan Vega turn in his grave. Sick, sordid old crooning spat like bile from a wounded animal, fairy tales of ordinary madness, everyday nightmares and steel-reinforced rock ab from Lorraine, drifting in the cold gas-clouds of sulfur-laced heroin. These dudes are not fucking around, they go all the way. No remorse. Life rules most when it sucks, and maybe it's right there, in the firmament of famine, in the atrium of deserted factories, where the last vestiges of poetry survive. They sure kept us stewing since their 1st ep, but it was well worth the wait..



Artist : Scorpion Violente / The Dreams 

Label : Hex Grammofoonplaten 

untiltled / 7"

2 bands from the contemporary French scene (from Metz). Both played on the Hex nights in Amsterdam. Scorpion Violente plays excellent raw minimal electro. One of the Scorpion Violente members is also involved in The Dreams. The Dreams are like the perfect mix between Les Georges Les Leningrad, Crash Course In Science and ICK. In short : some of the best dada synth punk bands around at the moment. An extremely dirty and trashy 7” with wild synth punk sounds for the selected dancefloors around the world ! Tip...

fahrenheit 451


Artist : Scortilla 

Label : Synthetic Shadows 

fahrenheit 451 / LP

Italian new-wave band formed in 1979 in Genoa. Influenced by Devo, punk and early wave bands, their only hit was "Fahrenheit 451", released on major label in 1984. Architects of live act with a great sound and visual impact, Scortilla played around Italy by the hideouts of the underground music by establishing their headquarter at the Psycho Club of Genova, the cradle of true art-rock scene of the period. Intransigent about their artistic choices, the band closed the career after their unique 12". Absolutely amazing material. For those who consider Gaznevada and Italian new-wave' at the same level of european stuff, this is a record you're going to consume up to pulverize !

delirio mind


Artist : Scotch 

Label : ZYX 

delirio mind / 12"

One of the most known italo-disco bands from the 80's. The members were Vince Lancini & Franz Felleti. The group released several popular singles and here is their biggest hit "Delirio Mind" from 1984; memorable since it starts with a tongue in cheek opera style vocal solo. Cheazy classic !

tomorrow is too far / I am god


Artist : Screen Vinyl Image / Rude 66 

Label : Custom Made Music 

tomorrow is too far / I am god / 7"

The Screen Vinyl Image / Rude 66 split 7" takes dark industrial electro sounds and edgy Wax Trax / 4AD era guitars and pushes them to the outer limits; offering up a heavy dose of new-wave futurism. Screen Vinyl Image, well known for putting on raging guitar feedback shows, are also no strangers to electronic music, and their track "Tomorrow Is Too Far" is possibly the furthest the band has gone yet in the realm of analog machines and horror/sci-fi themes. Rude 66, one of the founders of The Hague acid sound, and who has released records with Bunker, Crème Organization, Viewlexx and more, brings us "I Am God", a march into darkness filled with stabbing basses, cold synths, edgy guitars and vocoder vocals by wife Shauna Lekx, delivered in calculated bloodlust and horror. Tip !!



Artist : Seacrypt 

Label : Falco Invernale Records 

seekers / 12"

The Makina GirGir-run label Falco Invernale Records (F.I.R.) have been working with Seacrypt to release their mini-album 'Seekers', a totally new album in which they explore deeper electronica and more inherently melodic sensibilities that have been hidden earlier with their release on Katabatik, titled 'A Momentary Rift'. They have matured as a group and are moving to have even more warmth in their analogue synth-pop with coldwave overtones. Since their 1st release in 2012, which also was a great release in itself in another way, this is a militarized version that you can hear in their new release. More focus on the organic features that need to be kept alive in the landscape of sound. Everything is connectable and together it makes their sound more grandiose. With militarization (there is a certain overlapping theme of urgency in their material), a certain discipline in regards to the focus of the instrumentation, the delivered product meets the qualities they've looked out for, for this record. The melancholic intentions and the darkly lyrics that are spouted in a more enigmatic fashion, switching from a duo of a female and a male, to going completely solo. This changes into disco-vibes with dark beats on the B-side, showing how versatile this group really can be. It's the 7th release on F.I.R., one of our favorites. You must listen to it !

"La Décadence Electronique" is an album full of addictive analogue electronics that combine synthetic sounds and constant rhythms with memorable vocals.

world of rubber


Artist : Second Layer 

Label : Dark Entries 

world of rubber / 2x12"

Second Layer was a side project of Adrian Borland & Graham Bailey, members of post-punk band The Sound. The project was born from early punk band The Outsiders, which had both Graham and Adrian as members. Second Layer featured the voice and guitars of Adrian mixed with the bass and pioneering electronics of Graham. The music was bleak, detached, and desolate, but very beautiful. Honest songwriting and a harsh sonic backdrop set them apart from their peers. The band's 1st 2 singles were released by Tortch label. The 1st was 'Flesh As Property' ep in 1979 and the 2nd 'State Of Emergency' ep in 1980. By 1981 Second Layer had found a home on London-based label Cherry Red and released their debut album 'World Of Rubber' in november of that year. Full of hard mechanical sounds produced by Adrian's guitars and Graham's homemade drum machines, the album actively engages the listener. Songs are manic and twisted, pervaded with haunting subterranean atmospheres. Adrian's anguished voice tackles lyrics that are politically charged and morbidly fixated. Metallic guitar riffs, moody basslines, and Wasp synthesizer beeps are set to the band's cache of processed tape loops. They are a homegrown electronic garage band that sit alongside their contemporaries Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire and Public Image Limited. This deluxe 2xLP edition features the complete recorded output of Second Layer plus 5 unreleased demos from 1978-80. Each LP comes in an exact replica of the original metallic sliver and black jacket from the 1981 issue with a never seen before fold out poster made by the band in 1980 with liner notes, photos and press clippings. Though Adrian passed away in 1999, his genius lives on in these recordings. Clap the headphones on, squeeze the volume up..!

miami eyes

miami eyes / 12"

After a very deep and aquatic breakbeat ep with Miami hip-hop label Counterflow, S.F.C. jumped off in 2003 into electroid territory with this booming, bass havy number, fed on a legacy of ghetto 808's and double 18" speakers in the boot. Dark vocodered vocals lay out the sinister edge that seperates this from your garden variety booty-shaker. On the flip, honorary Miami citizen Andrea Parker rebuilds with immense deep bass and a perfect stripped down feel. Already being caned by the likes of Weatherall, Tenniswood, Scape One, Mr Velcro Fastener and more.. Nice !

Secret Life was an Antwerp (Belgium) based new-wave band, featured on this album in their most quintessential line up. The band acquired a dedicated fan base and played at legendary new-wave venues such as Plaza, Paradox and Tom Tom. Secret Life released a widely distributed 8 track tape, from which many songs were released on various cassette labels. This album features those tracks for the 1st time. Included here as well is their only vinyl release at the time: the double A-sided 7" "Searching/Agression", a modest cult hit and now a sought after item. Tip ;)

Section 25 were formed in Blackpool (UK) in November 1977. Initially they were a duo, consisting of brothers Larry Cassidy (bass, vocals) and Vincent Cassidy (drums). In June 1978 they made their live debut, and in November were joined by guitarist Paul Wiggin. In 1985, a single, "Crazy Wisdom", was released on Factory Benelux as a 12". The other tracks on the ep are "Dirty Disco", a reworking of a song on the album "Always Now", and "The Guitar Waltz". Initially the single was planned as a 7" on Factory Records (FAC 132) but was shelved. Once again, the harder electronic sound developed on this single, was continued with the appointment of Bernard Sumner and Donald Johnson as producers 5New Order). Classic electro synth wave. Original pressing ;)

The music of the duo from Athens is transparent, fresh and takes your breath away. It is strictly analogue, though alongside the synthesizers, drum-machines and loops a bass line, a dreamy piano and saxophone melody may surprise you. The female voice narrates about love and the loss of it, about death and the fear of it, about sexuality and the repression of it, about addictions, psychological weaknesses or strengths, all our own personal ghosts, which distinguish humans from other species. The power and tenderness of the male vocals penetrate your senses directly. This is their debut LP 'Verboten' limited to 500 copies & including download link and innersleeve.



Artist : Selofan 

Label : Fabrika Records 

tristesse / LP

The 2nd full-lenght of Selofan is worth wondering how so many music elements and different styles can be perfectly combined into a homogenous soundtrack, a trip back in time and yet so modern and individual. 12 new tracks of diverse music structures and moods, which reflect the maturation of this gifted duo. Side A is of a deep romantic sensibility. Unlike their previous 'Verboten' LP, though still following the synthesizer and drum machine strategies, Selofan use more instruments, the bass and saxophone playing the leading role, all put together at their home studio. This record needs 'instructions for use' and you will find them on the B side. Things are not as they seem, each track reveals a completely new cosmos, a piece of classical piano music, a rhythmic tango, old school dark wave and synthpunk tracks coexist in harmony. The expressive story-telling enters the mind with caustic lyrics of existential anguish as well as the poetry of Rilke and Hesse. Limited to 500 copies, printed innerseeve with lyrics, free download code(mp3/FLAC)

ciné romance


Artist : Selofan 

Label : Fabrika Records 

ciné romance / LP

Once you enter Selofans' "Ciné Romance" you will never want to leave again. You will be transferred in a new-wave world of playful irony, electronic melodies and experimentation. Once we go through the gates of this Cinema we shall forget our fears in the sound of a cinematic track inspired by David Lynchs' movie Dune. After this catharsis we are ready to enter the dark, mutant world of (according to our opinion) the currenlty most visionary band emerging from the Greek underground. Selofans' world is multi sided, you may feel directly connected to it and the next moment you may lose the ground under your feet. Polymorphism comes from Greece and has always been a characteristic for Selofans' music. The album is singular in concept but varies genres: dark-wave treasures, synth-punk spells, melodic saxophone fairy-tales and early industrial beats coexist in harmony, while a hallucinating voice sings or whispers poems of great emotional tension in different languages, exposing uncomfortable truths. This album transfers a powerfully original fusion of energies and is meant to be only for the wild at heart! A limited to 1000 copies future-classic! Includes download link, innersleeve with the lyrics and sticker..

do you really just wanna dance ?


Artist : Sendex 

Label : Bunker 

do you really just wanna dance ? / 12"

The 303 has found friends again, and Sendex go all out for an acid assault on this release. "Pure Acid’ starts with an emotional but simple string line that drags you in, fading in the acid underneath brings those memories back, and when the beat drops its perfect for the 303, fitting tight as a nut around each other, its an oldschool groove you can't afford to pass on. Also check the 303 twiddlings of "Just Dance" with its acid droplets raining down on the simple toy drums of the beat, using the modulation the track is built up till the acid is a flanging monster that takes up all the space, rampant old schooltwiddling. Great Fun !

exposure / 12"

5 killer, floor-packing old-school Chicago acid tracks from a displaced The Hague timezone. Almost 15 years after the 1st original Trax releases by Farley Jackmaster Funk, Dj Pierre and Marshall Jefferson, Sendex on Bunker Records brings you the same fresh quality... We love it !

panzerkreuz 1000


Artist : Sendex 

Label : Panzerkreuz Records 

panzerkreuz 1000 / 2x12"

Panzerkreuz is to be a subsidiary of both Bunker and Motorwolf Records, as from black ritual acid to drug rock enforcement, Panzerkreuz shall teach you pity little worms it's all about the same vision, the same encoding and the same intensity, not human, yet very human, but already existing millions of years before the dawn of mankind, endless waves of endless particles pulsating through endless time and endless space, our pity little brains that understand nothing, but experience all, full of fear, yet very excited, the imperative and illusionary reality versus the futile and illusionary ego, pure white, pure black, pure shit, how can anything be pure, when all is one ? Handmade artwork, dark music for the dark room, deep acid house mindfuck, Sendex' most sinister production so far... Test it ;)
