non plus ultra 1980-1987 / LP

After a long process of searching, restoring and a careful remastering, we are pleased to present a very carefully selected collection of hard-to-find tracks from the vanguard Spanish techno scene from the 80's. All the material featured on the 'Non Plus Ultra 1980-1987', except for the group from Zaragoza Vam Cyborg, has never been officially released before: most of these tracks should be regarded as demos although some bands had the chance to record them on cassette or reel-to-reel and even in a few cases could have had a limited distribution. This has made it possible for us to recover some of these recordings which we believe should not be lost to oblivion. It's a repertoire of some pioneer groups, which are as unknown as they are interesting, creative, and ahead of their times. After nearly 30 years silence they have stood the test of time and still sound as contemporary as they did then. For the 1st time they will be released in LP format in a limited edition of 525 copies including postcard and compiled dossier with detailed information regarding all the bands featured on the compilation. Great record !

Label : Plastic Frog Records 

frogmania / LP+CD

This strangely festooned LP is the latest compilation from one of Germany's premier purveyors of synth-wave and electro-pop: Plastic Frog Records. Label co-founder Klaus Weinrich, under his K.Rotte alias, opens with the abstract "Frogmania 1" before Kernkrach's Gertrud Stein offers up some choice analogue sounds. Minimal wave veterans Bal Paré dish up a euphoric piece of pop wave, brimming with thick synths. The unmistakable sound of ADN' Crystall is turned down with an instrumental track. Up and coming synthesists dapple the LP. Relative Kalte, Brigade Rosse and Massendefect all give some superb outings. Another novice outfit, Held Der Arbeit, turn out a blinding piece of heavy wave, muscular minimal pop. Im Namen Des Volkes level the playing field with some subdued harmonics before The Rorschach Garden emit a catchy piece of quick paced analogue pop. 'Frogmania' sees heavy hitters of the minimal scene sit side by side with newcomers. Downtrodden wave pulls up a seat next to Amiga inspired electronics-a stunning cross section of a fixating sound. Think along the lines of Kernkrach, Astro Chicken and Minimal Wave. Includes a bonus CD ;)

the end of civilization / LP

Catching the same spirit of labels such as Factory Records / 4AD, the Italian synth wave princess Mushy was asked to create a compilation starting from a tabula rasa. The mission was hard. Following her tastes and heart, she had to select a dozen of new bands from all over the world with unreleased and unique for this project tracks, picking up the title and realizing the graphic design and artwork. The full process of 'The End Of Civilization' took almost 1 year but the result was touching us deep into our soul. Mushy began her career crafting noise bursts and aggressive oblique instrumentals before, in her newest form, blooming into a beautiful, epic and heart-heavy icy synth sound, having both 'Faded Heart' (2011) and 'Breathless' (2012) as album of the week at Rough Trade. 'The End Of Civilization' perfectly represents her double sided synth-wave / kraut-psychedelic soul. Every track she selected for us is an absolute highlight, moving from the analog minimal / cold wave sounds of Police Des Moeurs, ASSS, The Circa Tapes, TEEEL and Rosemary to the tempestuous post punk and psychedelia of Deathday, The Murder Act, Phosphor and The Strange Forces, ending with spectral cold folk of Tablets and The Long Wives. Limited edition of 500 copies on black vinyl !

Not only are we going to hear the music of pre-Der Plan sets such as Weltaufstandsplan and Die Karmann Ghias, but also what happened on the other side of the planet simultaneously. From San José (aka 'The Pit'), the tunes of the prehistoric new-wave singers and other groups will complete the archives of home-made experimental para-pop music from the late 70's.

electric voice compilation / 2x12"

Over the past few years Electric Voice Records has established itself as one of Canada's most forward-thinking and ambitious new labels, releasing a mountain of innovative pop music from an eccentric roster of international bands and artists. The label's grand vision is quite simply to archive the current state of affairs in the underground world of pop music. Although a bold mission, this new compilation makes huge strides towards that aim. Culled from a hopelessly jammed inbox of submissions and requests, these 18 tracks represent some of the finest jams to ever grace the Electric Voice catalogue and offer a cross section of both up and coming and established artists. The label's obsessive attention to quality means that every track is an absolute highlight, but notable contributions include "Dutch Me", a collaboration between cult bedroom wizards R.Stevie Moore & Ariel Pink, and "The Stand", a minimal synth track by 80's no-wave trailblazers Jeff & Jane Hudson. The compilation also includes a chilling track by Australian protopunks HTRK (Hate Rock Trio) which features the band's late friend and producer Rowland S. Howard of The Birthday Party on guitar. But every cut on this double LP is a winner, with new projects like Femminielli, D'Eon, Rape Faction, Soft Metals, Automelodi, Innergaze, Grand Trine, Jef Barbara, and Catbag commanding as much attention as anything else on the album. And of course, the strange, zen-like art of Adam O'Rielly and mastering work of Evan Cardwell transform this collection of great songs into a coherent piece of art. All in all, the brilliance of this compilation testifies to the unstoppable growth and focus of Electric Voice Records.

Label : La Forme Lente 

circuit d'actes 3 / LP

La Forme Lente are stalwarts of contemporary synth-wave. The French label has created a platform for modern artists exploring the sounds of new-wave, minimal synth and analogue pop. One of the pillars of the imprint, one of its main methods to bring new names to eager ears, is their 'Circuit D'Actes' compilations. 5 years after the 1st edition of this series comes the 3rd, 'Circuit D'Actes 3'. As ever La Forme Lente have dug deep and unearthed some new growth talent. Kline Coma Xero introduce themselves with "Left Behind". Beats race as arpeggios rise and fall; scorched undertones meet atonality and tear streaked vocals for a fiery first. The musings of Illustation Sonore follow. Snares are measured as synth layers are built against tinted lyrics. The track mirrors Electro Pop, catchy with a tempered energy. Position Parallèle, of Hau Ruck!, are next with "Pop Mortem". The immediate comparison is Automelodi. It might be the vocals en Francais, but the softness of chord and gentleness of touch throw up further similarities—delicate and fragile electronics. EBM arrives with Post Mortem. "Amorf /verzió/" is a pulsating piece of factory floor soaked angst. Brittle and raw. Shiny Black Mater, formally Le Syndicat Electronique, emit the weird warblings of guitar and psyche machinery. Kline Coma Xero return on the flip for another excellent installment. Grit sits next warmth, angst beside contentedness and caustic before comfort. Illustration Sonore offer "Violence" and EBM class is the product; the vocals are reminiscent of Adult. whilst the synth tones come straight from SPK. Position Parallèle maintain their lightness of touch with "Si Je Te Croise…," an exquisite work of analogue laden pop. By the looks of things, Új Látásmód Fúzió may be the only artist on the compilation who isn’t French. The Eastern European drops heavy chords and guttural vocals for a dark and powerful piece. The dredging lament of “Roses and Ashes” finishes. Shiny Black Mater reinvents Ring-a-Ring-o’-Roses to a pitched back dirge. It can be extremely difficult to see past the smoke of the wave scene. New artists are surreptitious and imprints often clouded, some not even having websites. La Forme Lente, and their Circuit D’Actes compilations, help to navigate the listener towards gleaming aural islands and analogue ambrosia. This third installment has a focus on synthesizers, verging into EBM and Industrial in parts. Ten tracks of addictive, emotional and even grief-laden electronics. A rich and varied assortment of excellence from this French imprint.

the thing from the crypt / LP

'The Thing From The Crypt', is a 16-track compilation of UK Diy/synth/new-wave/post-punk originally released in 1981. Showcasing the thriving post punk sound of Watford, a town in Hertfordshire, England, located 20 minutes northwest of central London. 'The Thing From The Crypt' neither attempts to sell a Wotford sound nor claims to be a comprehensive guide to the area's best beat bands. Like all good compilations, its essence is variety: some tracks will make you come whilst other will make you vomit. This compilation features 8 bands with 2 songs included by each group. Exhibit A were a quartet featuring Mat and Dan from Solid Space and Paul and Andrew from Twelve Cubic Feet. Legendary post-punk act Sad Lovers & Giants make their 1st appearance here as a 5-piece. Mex was the solo project of Paul Mex, the man responsible for this compilation, who went on to produce songs for Wham and George Michael. Gambit Of Shame deliver driving carnival pop and would later work with ex-Soft Machine member, Robert Wyatt on their debut single. Flying Beechcraft serve a slice of wistful Flying Nun indie pop. Image In Ruin bounce between off-kilter NY no-wave skronk and angst. Soft Drinks were a short-lived synth-punk trio featuring the Jon Greville of Rudimentary Peni and Martin Drooper of The Magits who released a 3 song ep on Outer Himmylayan Productions. S-Haters were a deathrock quartet also on the Outer Himmylayan roster who channeled the gothic punk of Pil's "Metal Box" and Joy Division. The vinyl comes housed in a full color printed jacket using the original silk screened artwork. Each LP includes a copy of the 12 page booklet that came with the original pressing. 'The Thing From The Crypt' is more than a local compilation, its the stuff John Peel shows were made of.

electroconvulsive therapy vol.1 / LP

1st compilation LP on Medical Records. A collection of extremely rare and sought after singles and rare tracks. It includes 5 complete A + B sides as well as 2 other tracks that only appeared on obscure compilations in the early 80's. The 1st 2 tracks are by UK's The Electronic Circus. featuring Chris Payne (who also performed synth work on the iconic 'Pleasure Principle' by none other than Gary Numan), the track "Direct Lines" is pure synth-pop perfection. The 2nd featured artist is Boston's Psychic Youth who released one lone 7" in 1982. One of the members, Perry Geyer, was also a founding member of the industrial outfit Manufacture. "Step In Time" and "The Future Is Now" are both dense minimal synth hits that have been remastered by Mr. Geyer himself. Another excruciatingly rare 7" is the self-titled single by UK's Aaah…! "Slip Away" and "Duty Calls" further fit the bill for moody minimal synth-pop greatness. Possibly even more rare is the Shazam single released in 1983 in the UK. Both tracks from the single are included here. The 2 "Wild Card" tracks if you will on the record are "Panic In Your Mind" by N.A. Pop 2000 (UK) and "Maske" by Berliner Strasse (Yugoslavia). Both tracks were plucked from rare wave compilations from the early 80s'. The final single featured is the solo outing by Claude Arto from Mathématiques Modernes. Released in 1981 on Celluloid (France), the 2 tracks drip synthetic bloops and blips while being propelled by rhythmic electro sequences. A perfect closing of each side of the LP. This collection will certainly appeal to fans of the rare minimal synth culture, early stripped down synth-pop, or anybody else who has wanted even one of these tracks on wax again as they are all quite rare. Limited 2017 repress edition on 180gr vinyl !

recuerdos del futuro - un homenaje al sonido de valencia / LP

When, at the end of the 80's, the wave of techno washed over Europe, it not only revolutionized the world of music at large, it also created a multitude of local genres and subgenres, some of which became universal references, while others remain little known to this day. In Valencia, on the Spanish Riviera, one did not only move to the hardcore rhythms of Mákina in those days. As early as 1989, Julio Nexus and his label Megabeat, later joined by German Bou and Nezkabel Records, began to produce the 1st records of what was to become 'El Sonido De Valencia'. Influenced by synth-pop, new-wave and EBM, the sound of Valencia is an unidentified object in the story of techno music: with its baroque synthetic saxophones, its Spanish Twin Peaks samples, its subtle electro beats and its almost kitsch melodies, it has little in common with the 140+ bpm hardcore tekno happening everywhere else at the time. Today, almost 25 years later, it is high time to pay tribute to a mostly forgotten and totally underrated scene, which had nonetheless an everlasting impact on many south-European ravers. High time to remember the future, with 9 contemporary reenactments of the Valencian magic. Limited edition of 250 copies on black vinyl, plus full colour insert ;)

minimal milan / 12"

Minimal Trend Records is a new independent label based in Milan, dealing with minimal synth-pop and fusion electronic genres from rising and more confidential artists. With edition activity, it also provides tour management and appears to support actively the world of vinyls. This 1st record is a collection of tracks which represents particular variants of minimal synth, sometimes pushing out the boundaries to embrace musical schemas and sporadic excursions in dark wave, disco-trancedelica and cold driven soundscapes. If I except the work of Oksana Rodionova (aka MarryMe2night and Xiu), we must confess that we previously never heard anything from the projects selected in this compilation. To sum up things Minimal Milan is a beautiful sonic musical voyage built on a sea of minimal waving synth textures with direct reminiscence from the 80's electronic underground within a modern shape..

4-track 7"ep compilation including a new-wavey minimal-casio-sound taken from the 1986 Tape 'Cindy S.' from Anti Trust (aka Haiko Herden); also a dancable minimal electro-wave taken from the 1987 Tape 'The End' from The Unrealizable Wish. On B-side we have an extremely catchy kindergarten pop with lovely girl's voice from 1989/90 from Perverse Names & Bottles Of Beer and also a casio-pop lovesong from Cabra (1985), that won't leave your ears for a long time. All 4 tracks are little loveable hits. If you like the '2 Hemden & 2 Hosen' 7" series from Kernkrach, you are also right here to explore nearly unknown minimal gems.

electroconvulsive therapy vol.2 / LP

For Record Store Day 2014, Medical Records presents 2 exclusive releases celebrating the classic disco of 80's Italy. The 2nd release is a very special compilation of very rare and sought after A & B sides (plus 2 more hand-selected tracks) of 3 italo-disco iconic 12" singles that were originally released on the legendary Fuzz Dance label (a sublabel of Materiali Sonori). This is volume 2 of Medical Records' 'Electroconvulsive Therapy' series which celebrates rare singles in the synth/wave/disco genre. The 1st single needs no introduction to lovers of disco. Trophy "Slow Flight" (vocal + instrumental versions) was released in 1982. A very hard-hitting percussive track with very interesting production that is quite gritty yet smooth with it's vocoded vocals and synth melodies. The 2nd single which is probably the most rare is Zed "Plastic Love" vocal + instrumental versions that were released in 1983. Sultry female vocals and pulsing electro sequences make these 2 versions absolutely essential. The original single is commonly bought and sold in triple digits so both A & B sides were included here. Clocking in at the 3rd position on both sides are the vocal and instrumental versions of "Hesitation" by Mya & The Mirror which is a production by Alexander Robotnick (Maurizio Dami) with female vocals. Also included as bonus tracks at the end of side A & B are Mon Bijou's 'Just A Lover' and Naif Orchestra's "Check Out Five". Both are unstoppably catchy and were released on Fuzz Dance as well in 1984. For fans of classic and the synthy side of italo-disco (i.e. Casco, Sun La Shan, Amin Peck, etc). Remasterd by Mino Cavallo with additional mastering and restoration by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK. Presented on high-quality 180gr striped 'italian flag' colored vinyl. Very limited edition.

radionome / LP

Valuable re-issue with some classic early synth-pop, minimal electronix taken from VPRO radio sessions in the early 80's (original album was released by VPRO in 1982). 'RadioNome' sounds as amazing today as when it was 1st pressed. With the Madonna of neo-liberalism being laid to rest, the social and political discord created by Thatcherism coursed through Europe in the 80's. Electronic musicians engaged in the global shifts of some 30 years ago. These artists used synthesis to create a binary poetry, employed a circuit-board canvas to paint their discontent and analogue machines to voice their feelings. 'RadioNome' was, and is, a sound of the future, a sound of revolt and a sound of passionate expression. Limited re-issue of 300 copies on the Dutch Blowpipe label.

domestic landscape (subterranean synth-wave compilation) / LP

Difficult to describe this album without using typical and recurring terms such as: 'extremely weird' or 'very rare to find'.. although it is inarguably true, and on this occasion we have wanted to go farther: we introduce you a selection of songs which, most of them, have never been released in physical format and can't be found in any other digital media until nowadays. Other few were published in very limited editions in cassette format, usually aimed at a local promotion of a kind of music which was totally inaccessible to the crowds, more than 30 years ago.. 'Domestic Landscape' is a compilation formed by 10 groups from all over the world. Some names will be familiar to those who have followed Domestica Records from the start in 2011. 'Domestic Landscape' is not a very common or habitual compilation, at least that is what we intended. Here you will find very different sounds, difficult to label, a range of songs made in a moment which is crucial to us, unknown but, at the same time, wonderful in the endless history of our beloved music. Limited edition of 450 numbered copies. Double side handmade printed cover. Album presented in a special die-cut jacket and heavy green cardboard sleeve. It includes an insert (30x30 cm) with extra information..

something cold / LP

Something Cold was formed by Justin Carver in 2009, as an ongoing live showcase for minimal-synth, coldwave and industrial sounds in Detroit. With an ever rotating selection of guest Djs and venues, Something Cold continues to bring strange sounds to Detroit, including notable live performances from Crash Course in Science, Salem, White Car, Martial Canterel, LA Vampires, ITAL, Blank Dogs, Mueran Humanos, Zola Jesus, and Innergaze. Something Cold now brings these mysterious frozen sounds to your turntable via this brand new vinyl imprint. Detroit is a city like no other: a bleak, post-industrial wasteland consumes most of the landscape. These ruins breathe a lot of creativity into the artists who immerse themselves in it; the revolutionary sounds of Detroit Techno have proved that to the world. There is very little techno in the sound of Something Cold though, instead a decayed sound that perhaps more accurately depicts the soundtrack of the city's rustbelt. This compilation release showcases acts who have performed at Something Cold over the years, as well as friends and allies who are no strangers to the Something Cold dancefloor. Tracks by local artists Autumus, Deastro, Especially Good, YOU., and Ze Dark Park reveal the sound of decadent nightlife easily found inside the empty corridors of Detroit. Meanwhile, North America's minimal Diy synth explosion is represented by bands from east to west coast, both well-known and completely unheard of: The Present Moment, Further Reductions, Os Ovni, and Subtitles. Each selection on this LP documents the sound of the coldest and most confusing social club of Detroit; this is Something Cold. Limited (and final) vinyl repress (200 copies) of its inaugural 2012 release. Strong !!

bay area retrograde (BART) vol 2 / LP

'Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Volume 2' is Dark Entries' 2nd compilation of underground music from San Francisco (and the greater Bay Area) made between 1978-1983. Towards the end of the 70's, San Francisco's experimental music scene clashed with the aftermath of punk and gave birth to a vibrant underground. By the early to mid 80's the Diy music scene of the Bay Area was a hotbed for experimental and quirky new-wave, post punk, and synthpop, quite similar to New York's no-wave scene and Berlin's Neue Deutsche Welle. This compilation connects the (transit) lines between these varied musical offerings and tells the secret story of eleven forgotten Bay Area bands. 'BART Volume 2' features slow, dystopian horror from pioneering industrial group Factrix; crushing, motorik noise from acid punks Chrome; amphetamine-driven synth punk from Red Asphalt; an early demo, never released on vinyl, from legendary post punk band Tuxedoomon; chilling atmospheric drone from Ki Di Me; leftfield new wave from Indoor Life featuring Patrick Cowley on synths; Los Microwaves more sinister side project Baby Buddha; gay drag icon Timmy Spence delivering an unknown camp classic, a pure instrumental electro-pop workout from Human Being Men; TR-808 fueled synth pop from Menlo Park duo Wonders of Science, and a poetic yet somber and haunting song from the mysterious Zru Vogue. Each LP is housed in a large 6-panel, 2-sided fold out poster designed by Eloise Leigh, featuring original photos and fliers from each band's personal archive plus a 36"x24" print of a photograph by Ruby Ray from 1978. BART is the acronym for Bay Area Rapid Transit, the main rail transportation system for the San Francisco Bay Area. This LP is by no means a definitive compilation but merely opens the tunnel to the underground of the Bay!

des jeunes gens mödernes - volume 2 / LP

The long-awaited follow-up to 'Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes', with 5 killer previously unreleased tracks. Volume 2 continues to explore the vaults of French post-punk, electro-pop, and no wave. Between the late 70's & mid 80's, in the wake of punk wave and in parallel to other types of music like disco, funk, ska, and reggae, a prolific and chaotic music scene began to develop in France, combining the energy of rock and the nihilism of punk with electronic experimentation. The period was not, on the whole, one of optimism and joy, played out as it was against a background of economic crisis and the cold war. A whole section of France's youth found itself confronted by the contradictions of the times it was living in: young people were torn between the sensation of living on the edge of an abyss and hope for the dawning of a new world; they were deprived of tangible ideological landmarks but resistant to the post-hippy utopias of the previous generation. In search of an identity, they recognized themselves in the dark lyrics, the cold synthetic music, and the laid-back attitude of the new groups bursting up all over the country, as much in the provinces as in Paris. 'Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes' (Modern Young Men) reactivates this French post-punk/novo diskö/new- and cold-wave scene, highlighting a cross-section of the specific creative diversity of this scene. The new-wave drew upon artistic avant-garde movements from the past (constructivism, futurism, symbolism, dadaism, socialist realism, and so on), as well as literature (romanticism, science fiction, etc.), cinema (new-wave, German expressionist cinema), and the latest technological advances (electronic, robotic, nuclear). Drawing on traditional culture as well as the underground subcultures to which various magazines and fanzines gave voice. The new-wave embraced all areas of creativity together, and built bridges between the different artistic disciplines (music, visual art, design, literature, cinema...) to an extent never before seen. Includes a 12-page booklet.

pas de deux / LP

We are in 1985, a hectic year for the emerging independent record label Auxilio de Cientos. The company 'offices' are in full performance. There are several projects going on, and the 1st one at international level is no less than a compilation which meets up electronic music groups formed by a couple, a very common tendency these days. A nearly 'conceptual' project in which electronic groups from such distant countries as USA or Germany take part; however, they have a common denominator: all of them are emerging groups in which experimentation and 'resounding risk' is an essential premise in their recordings. Nevertheless, there is a clear homogeneity in their sound. The synth-pop, dark ambient, minimal synth, industrial, techno amongst other musical classifications which later on would become very popular, are revealed in the grooves of 'Pas De Deux'. The selection of artists has been a hard and complex work.. Internet does not exist, Facebook, soundclouds, Instagram, Napster, and many other means which will emerge a few years after that, and which will facilitate the distribution and communication between people are science fiction in 1985. Those young artists and musicians communicate basically through fanzines, 'circles' of friends, independent radio stations, the well-known postcard art and epistolary post! However, there are no barriers to communicate and, eventually, they manage to compile an excellent selection, with themes specially recorded for that occasion. Some of the groups are, at the same time, pioneer in their original countries. That is the case of the Belgian Bene Gesserit (with their recording seal Insane Music), Deux Pingouins (Illusion Production). Both 'labels' will be very active in the following years and they will relatively manage to succeed in their respective countries. We can also talk about the American group Algebra Suicide (formed by a journalist from the Rolling Stone and a radio commenter), the Californian Psyclones, who sometimes remind us of The Residents, Lied and Die Freude, a German duet whose theme is the music of one of their video-performance, or the very young Enhanta Bodlar or the naif sound of the Italian Influenza Prods. 'Pas De Deux' led to Auxilio de Cientos' international taking off as well as a great step forward in the consolidation of an alternative to the 'official' one music prevailing in Spain. Other groups and recording seals were working at a similar level in other cities of the country, and all together brought in a different view, a new sound. Edition of 500 copies !

electroconvulsive therapy vol.3 - obscure singles circa 83-86 / LP

Medical Records continues their unearthing of extremely rare singles in their 'Electroconvulsive Therapy' series. Once again, teaming up with Crispy Nuggets blog, they have assembled yet another collection of long out of print and underground singles and rare tracks. This compilation includes 3 complete A + B sides from 7" singles + 4 other rare songs (2 from cassette, 1 A side of a 7", and 1 track featured on a rare 80's compilation LP). All original tracks are impossible to find for less than a mint on the collector's market. The 1st 2 tracks are by Belgium's Tipical Me from the 'Claustrofobian / Pope No Hope' 7". These 2 tracks are perfect synth-pop in every way. The 2nd artist is UK's Secession, and we have included their debut 7" released in 1983. Though known for their later more electronic based pop and dance tracks, these 2 tracks display their earlier dark beginnings with chilling guitars and a more early 4AD aesthetic. Both tracks from the 7" are included. The 3rd artist is France's Leidenschaft who released one lone 3-song cassette in 1986 with 2 of the tracks featured here. Leidenschaft could loosely be compared to early Clan Of Xymox with French cold wave leanings. The 2 cuts are very atmospheric and lovely indeed. Back to the UK, they included the wonderfully minimal A + B sides of the rare 1984 7" by Black Fantasy. Original copies of this single have been selling for insanely high prices these days. 2 more tracks were also included on this compilation which complete the theme nicely. V.U.D. was an Italian outfit who recorded a track entitled "Look!" which was included on the 'First Relation' compilation LP released in 1983 on Mask Productions and curated by Lisfrank. Quirky and undeniably catchy, we absolutely adore this track as will everybody who hears it. The last track included on this LP is the A side of the rare 1984 7" by UK's Almost Alone entitled "Blue City". Dense and atmospheric synth-pop with definite new romantic tendencies, this track is a perfect closing track for this diverse collection. This collection will certainly appeal to fans of rare minimal synth, early synth-pop, or EBM. This compilation allows anyone who has desired to have one or all of these quite expensive tracks on vinyl in the best sound quality possible. Additional mastering by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK. This compilation and reissue was specially prepared for Record Store Day 2015 on high-quality 180gr blue & magenta 'half & half' colored vinyl. Limited edition.

synesthesia - the first five years / 2x12"

Medical Records is celebrating their 5 year anniversary as well as 50th release! Medical Records was founded sometime in 2007/2008 but released it's 1st double header of reissues in may 2010 with the (at the time) little known Deutsche Wertarbeit (MR-001) and the 1st album by famed italo/synth-pop guru Alexander Robotnick (MR-002). Since the beginning, Medical has pledged to bring back long out of print and lost new-wave, synth, and disco LPs from the 70's & 80's. With an emphasis on high quality heavy vinyl (with a dizzying array of colored wax), these essential records have been made available again at a reasonable price for collectors and new fans to cherish once again. Over time, they expanded their palette to include new artists with a similar aesthetic to our vision as well as crucial 90's reissues in the shoegaze and other unclassifiable genres. With collaborations with Crispy Nuggets, Light In The Attic, and Portland's 2010 Records, the back catalog of releases have spanned much ground. For this 50th release, they have chosen to release their 1st retrospective with a twist. This double LP features a hand-picked selection of tracks intended to highlight our past reissues on the 1st 3 sides. Featuring such standouts as Lou Champagne System, Tony Carey, Gay Cat Park and many more, it is a very nice representative collection. The 4th side of the double LP is a unique collection of our new (contemporary) artists performing specially selected cover versions of tracks featured on our past reissues. Examples include the sultry "We R" performed by Roladex (originally by Chrisma on 'Hibernation') and "Click" performed by Kline Coma Xero (originally by Disco Volante). This collection will surely be a treat for the fans who have been following their evolution over time and will especially prove to be a staple in anyone's collection who would like some of their reissued hits on one concise compilation. All reissue tracks and new tracks have received additional remastering and mastering (the new tracks) by Martin Bowes at the Cage Studios, UK. This collection will appeal to aforementioned lovers/collectors of rare new-wave, private press synth, cosmic/italo disco, vinyl djs, and many more! This double LP is housed in a specially designed gatefold heavy sleeve featuring the Medical logo in a 'color blindness test' on the front with the gatefold filled with thumbnails of all 50 past releases. Presented on high-quality 160gr colored vinyl.

From Copenhagen, Fremming Karspersen aka Delayscape presents "Trichoir", pure melancholia providing analogue sounds and melodic passages to open the compilation. Jan Jiskra is the name lurking behind the moniker Moduretik which offers up "Struktura I y II", 2 delicious slices of minimal synth. The Gallic Martin Roland also collaborates on our compilation with 2 tracks: "Le Fort De Stain" and "Petit" are 2 precious dreamlike jewels of melodic minimal synth. Ramiro Jeancarlo is Stacatto Du Mal, a self-taught multi instrumentalist and composer, creator of diverse styles which navigate between dark classical-romantic music blended with more industrial sounds, proof of which can be found on the 2 tracks presented on this compilation: "Undeniable Fate" and "Strombist Assignment". Oksana Zmorovych skulks behind the pseudonym Blabarism. The Ukranian inhabits 'Another Cold World' with "Net", a piece of electronica rich in detail and melody. Le Cliché is the synth-wave project of Gerard Ryan based in Barcelona. His music has been described as minimal synth, synth-pop, postmodernist, cold assembly line with neo consumerist themes, based on the use of synth sequences and virtual voices. "Le Musse" is a good example of this. From Toronto, the outfit Memorex carry their grain of sand to the compilation with roots lying in post punk and coldwave on "Electra Furs (In A City Of Glass)" and "Can't Remember". Last but not least, from Italy VDM picks up his analogue synths and drum machines in order to sculp 2 deep and disturbing minimal synth pieces in the shape of "Descent" and "Way Out". Nice comp'

the temptation tapes volume I / LP

Temptation Records was the label of Tor Dybdahl, vocalist, musician and songwriter in 3 bands who released singles in the mid-to-late 80's : Clockwork Orange, Downers and Horsemen. However, in addition to this, all the bands Tor was in had been recording a lot of material that never saw release in the 80's (including some real classics, on level with the 7" releases if not better still!). Hommage Records and Tor Dybdahl have now made an effort to make the best of this material available for the 1st time. The songs have been remastered from the original 4-track cassettes. Also, some songs had been left unfinished, without vocals. Tor has recorded the vocal parts to some of these for the 1st time. A 10-track LP, vol.1 features the hit songs "December Rain" and "Sensation Boys" alongside 8 totally unheard tracks, recorded between 1983 and 1987.

the temptation tapes volume II / LP

Tor Dybdahl is a relatively unknown man in the general music scene, but he released 3 singles during the 80's on his own independent-label Temptation Records. Some might remember Clockwork Orange “Sensation Boys” that made it as number 2 in 'Singles Of The Year' in Norway in 1985. This single was also given a lot of radio airplay by the Norwegian National Radio, NRK and on local radio stations. When Øystein Moe in 2009 released the compilation Maskindans (Norsk Synth 1980-1988), 3 of Tor's projects were included: Clockwork Orange, Downers and Horsemen. These were among the ones that were picked by bloggers, journalists and radios as some of the better material from it. Something Tor wasn't aware of, was the fact that a new generation of record collectors had started listening to his music, and that the singles he released had gotten a cult status and had become collectors' items in certain niches and scenes around the world. In the 80's, Tor recorded over 100 songs in different studios as well as on his own 4-track studio, and Hommage Records wanted to make some of this unreleased material available. This resulted in the trilogy The Temptation Tapes - Volume I, II & III. Fans of the 80's should simply buy this one ;)

karl ep / 12"

In its short existence Lunatic has managed a wide range of releases. Synth-pop, wonky techno, crumpled acid and even some leftfield house. This trend towards the unknown is being carried into their latest outing with an ep of electro centered sounds. One name will leap from the inner sleeve. Luke Eargoggle hasn't been as prolific as he once was but the Swede is undeniably one of the godfathers of stripped down mechanical machine music in Europe. But for those with an electro eye there are other names that will cause a stir: Kan3da (aka Karl Henrik Skagius) and Weltwirtschaft (aka Karl Lihagenal). "Karl" is a 12” of, well, Karls. Karls from Sweden. Karls collaborating to be more exact, the 1st between Eargoggle & Kan3da. "Icelandic Lady" is cold and driving. Terse beats propel the piece forward, bars ducking and diving beneath the arctic currents. The only individual work sees Kan3da reinterpreting a work of Pettersson's. "Ocean Movers" originally came out on Crème Organization in 2006. The Faceless Mind track is given a biting face-lift. Frost covered and metallic, the track removes man from the equation with the only link to flesh being the distorted words. "Die Ganze Welt" is a less ferocious affair. Bpms drop as a honeyed harmony plinks, the warmer side of colder electronics on show. "Astra" appears to come from nowhere. Female vocals, warbling synth pop cut by claps. For the finale Eargoggle & Kan3da give Jennifer Touch's original a cold shoulder and sly shove. Karl has shown another side of Lunatic. The 12" is electro of the frostier faction but there are moments of warmth coming through to thaw the chill. Dark and bitter sounds from the deepest recesses of the machine minded. 2nd edition !

computered love / 2x12"

Already tested on 2 festivals in Berlin and smashing. Tracks such as "Gut Bewegen" or "D.I.X.O." made the crowd dance/go mad within one minute.

Unique computer music art collector item, the music thematizes transforming human love with music into a computer. Or as Carol Rich would said in 1984: 'Computered Love'. 100% vintage productions from the 70's and 80's. Mostly extremely scarce or valuable collector items. Be sure that this computer chip protection bag gimmicks cover release going to be a sought after rarity in the future, too. Including the dope mega sought after title track "Computered Love" by Eurovision act Carol Rich from Switzerland. "XX 4" by $chwarzer Freitag is an unbelievable downtempo drum computer jam that's going to kill every dancefloor around the world. "D.I.X.O." is a timeless synth disco song that's will also work in a techno Dj set. Also included is the 1st time official re-release of the 8 minutes Transvolta "Disco Computer" 12" maxi version as 32 Bits 96khz dubbing of the original master tape.

The song however was produced as gift for his girlfriend in 1982. Nobody knows exactly how many of these original records exist because Jürgen Mäschle already passed away. It's rumoured that at most 10 testpressing copies were pressed. This mega rarity would be reason enough to buy this set because hardly anybody will ever get his hands on an original copy. 2xLP DMM audiophile pressing! + free download + sticker insert. 250 copies (here on black vinyl) !

let's go into space IV / LP

Fantastic compilation featuring: Angela Dean's paralyzing space disco track "World X" is a soundtrack production by Detto Mariano ('Exterminators Of The Year 3000') from 1979. It became a big underground to overground disco hit back in the days. Rendez Vous "My Blue Bird" from 1978, it took 18 months until the holder on the rights were found. The music was produced by Angelo Crisci who won some years after the production of "My Blue Bird" the Eurovision song contest for Belgium with his production Sandra Kim "J'Aime La Vie" in 1986. Love Spirit "Burn The Witch" composer Giorgio Sgarbi unfortunately already passed away. Both the producer of the song and ex manager of WPL records spoke only in the highest tones of him and would like to bring him with his song "Burn The Witch" on LGIS4 back to the mind of music fans. A small memorial for an artist from one of the most important music circles of Germany (Frank Farian, Boney M producer crew). The Primates are nobody less than 70's/80's French superstar Saint Preux. The instrumental version of "King Kong" showing one more time his psychedelic side. Schaltkreis Wassermann contributing the previously unrelased epic downtempo synth track "Space Symphony". Dieter Bührig (aka Disco Connection) wrote the magical track "Butterfly Dance". One of the most exciting techno prototypes from the 70's we heard so far. He doesn't produce any more music but works as a writer nowaydays. Pans People's "Club Lido" is an early prodcution by Steve Coe & Bob Mitchell who some years later became very famous as producers of superstar Laura Branigan. And last but not least Carl Barok "Blue Nights In Granada" is the 1st record of Dieter Kolb who later was part of the cosmic cult band Supersempfft from Frankfurt. Limited to 500 copies (here on black vinyl) with round "Minimize Panel" gimmicks cover !

17.49€

Artist : Various 

Label : Domestica 

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

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

Artist : Various 

Label : Dark Entries 

household shocks / LP

16-track compilation of UK DiY/synth/new-wave/post-punk originally released in 1980. The album showcases 9 bands from the thriving post-punk scene in Scunthorpe and the North of England. Operating on a shoestring budget, co-producers Chris Leaning and Paul Singleton (both of One Gang Logic), released 'Household Shocks' on Stark Products, a label they founded in 1979. At almost 50 minutes of music, the album took 4 weeks to produce at the Studio Playground in Lincoln. It was supported heavily by the late Radio 1 DJ John Peel. In july 1980 Paul Singleton and Chris Leaning opened a record shop in Lincolnshire, England. It opened under the name 'All Tomorrow's Parties', but later moved to the city center and was renamed 'Parade'. Through their growing local music scene and the separation of economic classes, their shop became the hangout for the local punk movement. It was there that the idea for 'Household Shocks', a compilation of their friend's bands, was born. Thunderboys offer 3 punky pop blazers and feature Carmel McCourt who who subsequently achieved chart success with her band Carmel. Product Of Reason contribute 3 haunting synthesizer heavy numbers. Sinking Ships supply 2 tracks of off-kilter dubbed out angst. Juveniles provide 2 power pop jams. Mystery Girls supply 1 track of quirky post-punk that recalls The Prats. Defectors, a female fronted quartet featuring COUM Transmissions affiliate Tony Menzies, grant us 1 superb track of somber gothic new-wave. Fault 151 serve a slice of wistful Flying Nun-esque indie pop featuring a 14-year old bassist. Urbantech, a short-lived synth-punk outfit, deliver one delirious track. One Gang Logic contribute 2 metallic synthesizer drenched pieces and close the album with a somber atmosphere. The vinyl comes housed in replica of Chris Leaning's original jacket design, which features a black and white photograph of a doll shocked by a vacuum cleaner. Each LP includes a copy of the double sided 11x11 insert that was included with the original pressing.

de koer 1981 (rare demos - previously released on cassette)

17.49€

Artist : Various 

Label : Testlab Records 

de koer 1981 (rare demos - previously released on cassette) / LP

Cherry-picking selection of rare new wave demo tapes recorded in 1981 and submitted to pivotal Amsterdam venue 'De Koer', now rounded up by Dutch house and techno legend Eddy De Clerq. Fair to say that we know less about the Dutch post-punk and new wave scene than many other countries so this set holds some canny historical value at the very least but the tracks inside are thankfully worth your time, too. Plucking favourites, Lee Randaldo and co's hot-stepping "Big Man" as Plus Instruments is up there, as is Mekanik Kommando's skronky twyster "Money For Pleasure" and the dark, hard but slightly daft charge of Minny Pops' "State Of Mind (demo)", and likewise the flashes of funked-up synth brilliance from Motel Bakossa and The Mutant Jasz's very Ludus-like Gold Square Garden. 180gr deluxe vinyl edition is limited to 300 copies..!

dance with the butterflies

7.49€

Artist : Various 41/2 Meets The Hormonic Calves 

Label : Schallplatten Aus Lurup 

dance with the butterflies / 7"

Another nice obscurity from the German new-wave scene. This band with the much too long name was completely unknown to us before this 7" arrived. Like with all releases from the Schallplatten Aus Lurup label this record is ultra limited (only 150 copies), and the sound of the band is lo-fi... very lo-fi. The recordings date from 1989-1991. Also as expected this is not music for the average listener. As with the other releases on this label it is for collector's and die hard fans of the genre only. Nice little record !

Artist : Veil Of Light 

Label : Avant! 

front teeth / LP

The Swiss Zürich-based act comes back with their 3rd full-length recording. Not even one year after their latest 'Ursprung' LP, Veil Of Light give us 10 new songs that mark quite a change of direction. The black&white artwork of their previous releases is gone to give space to one bold, full-colour look. The guitar-driven shoegaze-oriented fuzzy sounds of past records make way for a new focus on the electronic, industrial synth, EBM-wave spectrum. Check out the opener "Your Love" with its throbbing synths and mechanical drumming, or the pressing minimal-wave of Soul In Ethanol; again, "Sturm Und Drang"'s pounding industrial dance and "Body To The Ceiling"'s doom electronics. A new wave of new-wave is here and Veil Of Light are showing the way. LP comes in printed innersleeve with lyrics.

1979-1980

8.99€

Artist : Vice Versa 

Label : Democratic DanceBeat Records 

1979-1980 / LP

Vice Versa was formed by Stephen Singleton and Mark White in 1978. They asked Martin Fry to join them after Martin had interviewed them for his fanzine 'Modern Drugs'. They founded their own independent label called Neutron Records and produced their 1st release ('Vice Versa – Music 4 ep'). This is probably one of the greatest minimal-synth releases ever without any doubts. Neutron Records most important contribution to the scene was the 1980 ep 'The First 15 Minutes', which featured 4 unsigned bands of Sheffield: Clock DVA, I'm So Hollow, the Stuntkites and -of course- Vice Versa. The band released another 7" ("Stilyagi/Eyes Of Christ") and the cassette '8 Aspects of Love'. As Vice Versa they played a numerous amount of concerts. Their 1st gig was together with The Human League at Now Society at the Sheffield University and it was called 'What no Drummers'. When they went over to Holland on tour, they were invited to jam in a studio in Rotterdam. Martin started to improvise on vocals and everybody was surprised by the quality of his voice. They decided to make him the lead singer instead of Mark White and spent about a year writing new songs, thinking of a new name and concept. The result was ABC, one of the most famous UK pop bands of the 80's. Probably a bootleg limited to 400 copies!

Classic 2-track 12" from this UK duo from Leeds (Josie Warden : vocalist & Brian Moss : keyboardist) released in 1985. .. The duo started out as backing vocalists for Soft Cell. Then their combination of early new-beat and spacey new wave failed to attract our attention with a catchy sound and a penchant for highly provocative and sexualized lyrics.. Nice One !

maritime tatami

12.99€

Artist : Victrola 

Label : Dark Entries 

maritime tatami / 12"

Duo of Antonio 'Eze' Cuscinà and Carlo Smeriglio from Italy. The band formed in Messina, but later relocated to Florence to join the rich musical scene there with Neon, Pankow, Alexander Robotnick and Diaframma. Beginning as a 4-piece combo (2 guitarists, bassist, drummer) in 1979, they slimmed down to a synthesizer and guitar-based duo a few years later. Their sole release was the 'Maritime Tatami / A Game Of Despair' ep, from 1983. Using an array of now-classic Roland synthesizers (TR 606, TR 303 Bassline, Juno 6) plus a Korg Polysix and Fender Stratocaster, they crafted 2 darkwave ballads. "Maritime Tatami" engulfs the listener with trance-inducing synth lines and melancholic vocals over its epic 8 minutes. Oblique minor-key bass lines provide an anchor while snappy, brittle 606 rhythms propel the track along. The lyrics tell the story of Tatami, a boy from a fishing town who yearns for a new life in the big city. "A Game Of Despair", on the flipside, is a haunting crawl through the eyes of a woman left by her lover. An angular guitar riff repeats hypnotically, as fragile icy synth lines chime emptily above it. The vinyl comes housed in an exact replication of the original jacket, and includes an insert with lyrics and never-before-seen photos. Victrola's only release is a truly singular and timeless masterpiece—it's from a dimension of its own. Tip !!

ektakröm killer

Artist : Video Liszt 

Label : Medical Records LLC 

ektakröm killer / LP

In celebration of Record Store Day (Black Friday), Medical Records returns to France for the reissue of the very rare and sought-after Video Liszt LP. 'Ektakröm Killer' was released in 1981 and had never had never been reissued or repressed. The artist behind Video Liszt was Xol, a French journalist and musician. Commanding a multitude of analog synthesizers, Moog modulars, an EMS vocoder, and an Apple Two computer, Xol crafted a very diverse album with styles ranging from sci-fi synth soundtracks, prog, space disco, and all the way to more accessible electro-pop. The album was produced by Richard Pinhas (Heldon, Moogi-Le-Moog) and recorded in Pinhas's Studio Ramsès. Pinhas contributes guitar as well. Also of interest was that Jean-Louis Rizet (from French space rock group Pôle) engineered the record! Lovers of Einzelgänger, Jean-Michael Jarre, Kraftwerk, as well as late period Heldon will be head over heels with this hidden gem. Original copies have become very collectible and expensive in the 2nd-hand record market. Presented on high quality 180gr classic black vinyl with the original reproduction artwork and bonus insert with the original artwork from the 1981 release's inner sleeve.
