deepest chasms


Artist : Black Pond 

Label : Electronic Emergencies 

deepest chasms / 12"

Killer electro-wave tracks by Black Pond. Black Pond is a collaboration of underground star Beta Evers and Jeff Galea from the legendary Eleven Pond. Known for her solo work as well as various collaborative projects, Beta Evers can be considered the godmother of German electro-wave. Her beats are strict while her voice is cool and deep. Jeff Galea, who founded Eleven Pond in the mid-80's, is the master of energizing basslines and emotional synth melodies. 'Deepest Chasms' reflects their shared darkness in 4 melodic and atmospheric synth-wave tracks that won't let go of you.

models unrepresentative


Artist : Le Chocolat Noir 

Label : Charlois 

models unrepresentative / 12"

Croatia's Le Chocolat Noir debuts on Charlois with 4 cuts of embittered, EBM inspired, electronics. An ep of contrasts. Wrenching vocals are scored by brash synthlines; slicing snares, countered by a cold and bright hope. Frigid warmth from the heart of Zagreb.



Artist : Les Yeux Interdits 

Label : Tear Apart Tapes 

prison / 7"

Remastered version of a 80's classic tape release, now on 7" by Das Ding's label Tear Apart Tapes.

dream decay


Artist : Das Ding 

Label : Tear Apart Tapes 

dream decay / 7"

Since Minimal Wave released a fine compendium of his early 80's work as Das Ding back in 2009, Danny Bosten has become something of a cult artist. His latest missive on the re-born Tear Apart Tapes label is a tasty 7" featuring 2 new, all-analogue jams in his distinctive style. The title track is a boisterous and cheerily melodious affair, sitting somewhere between leftfield instrumental synth-pop and glistening italo-disco. Flipside "16 (New Mix)" is slower and more contemplative. It features bold electro bass, hip-hop tempo drum machine percussion, drowsy chords and woozy synthesizer melodies. It's the kind of analogue electronica that boasts a timeless quality, despite its contemporary construction.



Artist : Pametex 

Label : Frustrated Funk 

pmtx005 / 12"

The art of minimalism and reduction is one of the challenging difficulties in music making. Only a select group of artists pulled it off to create strong timeless minimal pieces that are still relevant in todays music environment. Think Jeff Mills, Rob Hood, Terrence Dixon, Daniel Bell, Ectomorph, BC, Mika Vainio... to just name a few. The art of reduction is like fine Italian food; Good basics and limited ingredients. Seasoning is mostly used to cover up bad taste. Pamétex is one of those cats that made music without the 'seasoning' of todays techniques. In the surprisingly short productive period (around 2000 when he co-produced with I-f in the Murdercapital heydays), he just wrote a bunch of tracks on a rhythm box, synth and a sequencer recorded straight to tape. What came out is now known in inner circles as highlights from electro's 2nd wave. Respected and favourited by lots of artists and serious music collectors. Here are the last pieces of the puzzle. Lost tracks from the dusty PMTX vaults. Recovered from the original tapes by Chris Callahan. Minimalism from a true musical mastermind !



Artist : Electronome 

Label : Murder Capital 

untitled / 12"

2016 remastered re-release of this essential Dutch westcoast electro-techno classic, aka Interr-Fered Communications HM1202. Great analogue electro, the best around ;)

beyond the congo


Artist : Legowelt 

Label : Bunker 

beyond the congo / 12"

2016 remaster! Comes with white labels instead of original artwork. A journey through the ebola-infested african heart of darkness, from local warlords and leopard men to secret international mercenary interventions. Another Legowelt affair full of drama, haunting synths and rolling disco beats...

time rewind


Artist : Inkamera 

Label : Last Known Trajectory 

time rewind / 12"

Brand new Inkamera ep on Last Known Trajectory! Inkamera's fresh, fluid and often poetic twist on electro is evident via all 6 tracks on this striking release. Including the gorgeous "Skylar" and "No Dead Men's Cries" (feat. Bogdan W. Rousseau). Pressed on clear white vinyl and featuring artwork by Anaďs Boudot. Beautiful job ;)

ram expansion


Artist : DMX Krew 

Label : Last Known Trajectory 

ram expansion / 12"

Debut ep on the quality Last Known Trajectory for DMX Krew, an artist which requires no introduction. "RAM Expansion" itself is a heady electro tune with a sunken load of synths at its disposal, while "Experiment 5" is classic DMX; mad modular-like patterns surrounded by menacing drums. You also got the weird and wonderful bleeps of "Quantum Computer" on the A-side, whereas the flip kicks off with a fiery techno punch in "Division By Zero", heads to more AFX tougher and abrasive territories via "Rubout", and ends on high-tec electro stroll of "Bad Vibes". This is no nonsense dance music at its finest. No sh**!

storm | evolution I


Artist : In Sync 

Label : Last Known Trajectory 

storm | evolution I / 12"

Evolution of In Sync's undisputed UK techno classic, namely "Storm". In Sync is Lee Purkis, co-founder of the legendary Fat Cat record store in London and a highly-respected figure among the early underground scene. Here, lovingly reinvented by who both In Sync and Last Known Trajectory consider to be some of the finest, and in some instances perhaps most understated artists in the business of true electronic music, LKT proudly presents reinterpretations of this legendary track, alongside new versions of accompanying tracks, "Warm" and "Subway Route". Split over 2 separately available 12" eps, on this, part 1 of 2, we have stunning reinventions from E.R.P. (aka Gerard Hanson), Maarten van der Vleuten (Evo-Lute Muzik) and Ramjac (of Irdial vintage).

babes of the 80s


Artist : Lebanon Hanover 

Label : Fabrika Records 

babes of the 80s / 12"

It has been a year since Lebanon Hanover showed us a place 'Besides The Abyss', by releasing on Fabrika their brilliant 4th studio album. As the withdrawal symptoms we feel due to our addiction to this band started to threaten our existence, they return to offer us once again their heart & soul in the form of a 12" maxi-single. Feelings close to misanthropy, disappointment, lack of communication and trust in social and personal relationships are the ingredients of this record, which combined with the most wonderful melodies and the heavenly voices of Larissa and William, evoke a unique tenderness that overshadows the sadness, a power that takes us by the hand and leads us to the dancefloor. And this is the magic power of Lebanon Hanover, a band with a strong message towards/against society, that makes us want to dance to its melancholy. 'The Babes Of The 80s' change both their musical and aesthetical style and LH surprise us once again by showing us a new aspect of their artistic creation. An ideal image of the bands elegance in full color, expressed by the wonderful cover picture of Thomas Amras and the descent to the daily routine on the back cover, are two strongly opposite components, which perfectly visualize the music. And the music itself comes with a unique totally synthesized power towards us, full of emotion, without any bass and guitar parts. And the surprise won't stop. 2 exceptional collaborations are to be found on this record. 2 great artists are remixing the self-titled track offering us another point of view and even more acoustic pleasure. She past away, a beloved band of the Fabrika family, join for the 1st time forces with Lebanon Hanover, in a dark, intimate remix of the "Babes". But also the cult italo-synth artist Tobias Bernstrup contributes with a sensual and extremely danceable mix to this release..



Artist : Ame De Boue 

Label : Spielzeug Muzak 

finitudes / LP

4 years after 'L'Inconfort Nécessaire', released on esoteric-tronic label Treue Um Treue, here is the 2nd LP of this one man+machines project driven by Dasz (also involved in Dolina and Illustration Sonore). It's a collaboration between the prolific post-punk label Danger Records & Spielzeug Muzak, propagators of dirty sounds over the years. As expected, this album brings another bunch of tormented urban electronic songs. Still oscillating between aerial cold waves and warm intimist electro darkness, between organic analog (un)purity and bad-fidelity digital fragility, between urgency and detachment.. Again, we are invited to a lame dance on pendulum-like sequences, when city sleeps.. The words used are simple. Sung in different languages, they're describing slices of frustrated lives, post-modern diseases and common anguish, sometimes with a touch of black humour, to underline the absurdity of it all. Finiteness in its various definitions is the link between the songs. But it has nothing to do with our apocalyptic times.. Or has it ?

transdance g.c.1


Artist : Night Moves 

Label : Domestica 

transdance g.c.1 / 10"

The mythical "Transdance" from UK duo Night Moves is given a much needed official repress by Domestica Records and the Barcelona label have spared no expense. A limited pressing of 400 clear blue 10"s come housed in hand printed and hand numbered sleeves accompanied by a leaflet with complete biography of the band. Despite the paucity of Night Moves discography, it's clear the duo of Michael Guihen and John Davis have had an everlasting effect on the canon of synth music with their much admired debut. Transedance was originally released as a limited 12" white label in 1981, finding favour on the dancefloors of Europe and New York City yet never really gained the wider exposure it richly deserved. Original copies of the GC1 pressing of "Transdance" still command slightly ridiculous prices so kudos to Domestica for this rather special presentation which features a previously unreleased demo cut "Life Up" on the flip. Edition of 400 copies, presented in a hand-made silk-screen printed cover sleeve. 2nd pressing on black vinyl including a booklet..!

original soundtrack


Artist : Gary Blanchard 

Label : Domestica 

original soundtrack / LP

Official reissue of the extremely hard to find 'Original Soundtrack' album by Gary Blanchard. Less than 500 copies of this analog keyboard solo effort were originally pressed, and less than 200 still exist. The album was written, produced and distributed in Gary's hometown Baltimore between 1986 & 1987. Gary Blanchard began playing guitar in the late 60's and soon became a regular on Baltimore's folk circuit. Then on April 19 1986, Gary came home from a peace benefit show, turned on the TV, and saw Laurie Anderson on Saturday Night Live. After 20 years, Gary decided he wanted to do something different. He bought a $100 Yamaha PSR keyboard, complete with autochord and drum machine, and began to experiment with writing in new ways. Rather than having conventional song structure, the music was more open. The words were sometimes spoken, and sometimes sung. Gary also began writing poems and vignettes to include in his performances. While these songs were not as overtly political as his folk-style songs, they commented on life in the 80's with a uniquely cynical Baltimore view. (Many thought Gary was influenced by Baltimore filmmaker John Waters, especially given Gary's love of pink flamingos, but Waters was not an influence on the music.) Gary began to search out other performers to help him bring this material to the stage; at the same time he started working with producer Erik Steensen to create a recording of the music along with some of the spoken word pieces. The album 'Original Soundtrack' was released about the time Gary did his 1st performance with The Generic Art Ensemble. Since the program was called, generically, SHOW, Gary decided to name the soundtrack album, 'Original Soundtrack'. The very 1st performance at Baltimore's 8x10 Club was a 2 person program with dancer Joan Mosca. Soon the Ensemble also featured Cynthia Gaver on keyboard, Stephanie Waters, a talented sculptor, as a performer and 2nd dancer, and Renee Zorn, who joined right before the ultimate performance of SHOW as sound technician; she later worked as a performer with Gary on the programs 'Experiments In Low Budget Technology' and 'Natural State'. After a break from performing while getting belated college degrees, Gary returned to performing in the early 21st century, back to the singer/songwriter style of his past. Gary feels that the 'Generic Art Ensemble/Original Soundtrack' days gave him an ability to open up his writing. His recent albums feature guitar, but many songs do have keyboards added to give them a fuller, less folky sound. This reissue includes numbered insert with complete biography and track-by-track notes by Gary Blanchard himself. Front cover artwork hand pasted on sleeve..

Artist : Cult Club 

Label : Domestica 

play with lies / LP

Cult Club is a Berlin-based electro-pop duo. Sally Jřrgensen is from Canada & László Antal is from Serbia. Their similar diverse backgrounds in the creative arts and their love for analogue imagery and pop melodies inspired them to collaborate together. Together their songs range from a dreamy, soft sound to harder driving pop songs. Sally's vocals are layered in a harmony of different sounds and melodies over László's fretless, bass driven music. Their debut ep 'Never Enough' was released on December 14th 2015, on Domestica Records. It featured an extended version of their most popular dream-pop song "All The People" to contrast the more chilling cold song versions of "Never Enough". Their full-length album 'Play With Lies' continues to feature sad, dream-pop songs such as "Call My Name" while also containing some straight up pop tracks such as "Play With Lies" and "Talk To Me". Limited to 350 copies with double-sided printed insert and 350gr heavyweight sleeve.. Tip !!

the collapse of ancient funk (vol.2)


Artist : Son Of Sam 

Label : Domestica 

the collapse of ancient funk (vol.2) / 12"

We all have been dancing for some time now to this 2nd release by mid-80's West Yorkshire industrial disco act Son Of Sam, an album consisting of all the instrumental tracks on the very rare cassette released by Final Image in 1985, 'The Collapse Of Ancient Funk' (1984-85 A.D.). Among others, you will find here for the 1st time ever on vinyl gems such as the futuristic 1985 remix of "Not A Second Wasted", inspired by Holger Czukay's experimentalism, and the early-electro sounding hit "Playground", along with the latest offering from the band, the previously unreleased track "You Got Me". Limited to 350 copies with hand stamped numbered insert and MP3 download code..

maquinismo operatorio 1984-1986


Artist : Fernando Gallego 

Label : Domestica 

maquinismo operatorio 1984-1986 / LP

Fernando Gallego is not a music band which we can define as 'common', on the contrary. This group from Burriana, successor of Funeraria Vergara, started its history back in the early 1984 (after Juan Luis Montoliu left), and it ended in 1986 with the emergence of the project Decúbito Supino. Their usage of some synthesizers, amongst other gadgets, keyboards and large petrol cans, was the distinctive feature as regards to their predecessor band; such an echo defined a much more industrial and electronic sound, closer to early EBM. As it happened with Funeraria Vergara, the disconnection or isolation towards something which might be classified as 'local scene' or similarity, which was the most common thing, given the circumstances.. Castellón, in those times, did not have many ways to let people know his music, and even less that one made by other groups similar to FG, either in style or musically speaking. This fact helped to define a unique and original identity, even more if possible, taking into account the personality and character of each of its members. F.G. didn't get to publish anything at all until 2012, when one of his songs (Almuerzo Desnudo) appeared in the compilation 'Non Plus Ultra 1980-1987'. Edition of 300 copies with DIN A3-sized poster printed double sided and free download code with exclusive digital bonus track..

cromosomas salvajes


Artist : El Aviador Dro 

Label : Mecanica 

cromosomas salvajes / LP

One of the most influential Spanish techno-pop bands from the 80's is finally taking back to life one of their most successful albums. Originally released in 1985, 'Cromosomas Salvajes' marked a big step forward on the career of El Aviador Dro Y Sus Obreros Especializados. While keeping their message in support of the working class, nuclear energy and futuristic vision, this work had a top production, more dynamic compositions and included some of the fans favorites: "Himno Aéreo", "La Ciudad En Movimiento" and "El Color De Tus Ojos Al Bailar". This new pressing has been restored and remastered from the original tapes. This beautiful LP edition comes in yellow vinyl with gatefold jacket with an exclusive postcard, one sticker and includes all tracks from the original issue plus the B-side "Tejidos" and the unreleased track "Europa Arde En Mi Interior" that was originally composed for the famous Eurovision song contest.

Artist : Absolute Body Control 

Label : Mecanica 

wind[re]wind / 2x12"

Absolute Body Control was formed by Dirk Ivens in 1980 and joined by Eric Van Wonterghem just after releasing their 1st single "Is There An Exit?". Achieving an underground cult following, the band took their influence from bands such as Suicide, D.A.F and the UK electronic scene. After a few years, the band members all went their separate ways finding success in other influential acts such as The Klinik, Dive, Sonar, Monolith and Insekt. In 2007 ABC re-formed and released 'Wind[Re]Wind' on a very limited picture disc LP and later on CD including updated & re-recorded versions of their best tracks. Modern sound recording techniques blend seamlessly with the classic roots of low-fi electro. Now, almost a decade after the 1st pressing, 'Wind[Re]Wind' is relunched including all the 13 tracks from the CD plus 2 new versions ("Waving Hands" and "The Man I Wanna Be") and a live recording from WGT 2007 (previously available only on a limited CD). Repress edition limited to 520 copies on black vinyl. No words necessary, pfffff..!

Artist : Group A 

Label : Mecanica 

70+a= / LP

Group A's Throbbing Gristle-influenced industrial synth-noise as always grown hand-in-hand with their arresting, conceptual live performances, making albums difficult artefacts to assess. From their noisy debut 'A' in 2013 to the same year's follow-up 'Initiation', there was a clear progression though, and their new 3rd album, '70+a=' is a further step forward. Group A's music always operated in the realm of minimalism, but they now wield the same limited range of tools with greater assurance and control, not to mention greater musicality. Sayaka's violin, which used to be limited to harsh, scraping atmospherics now on tracks like "We Are Surveyors (Ver.2)" flirts with tone and melody. That confidence also feeds into a newly assured approach to the minimalism and repetition that defines much of Group A's sound, with the "Yami -Saitei No Taisei-" a simple, sparse opening track that resists the temptation to fill out the sound with noise and ends up all the more atmospheric for its lack of atmospherics. The 8-and-a-half-minute "Kikaika" kicks off with a similarly sparse approach, but demonstrates Group A's growing accomplishment with deploying small shifts in the sonic layers to dynamic effect, its minimal synth-pop bass gradually overwhelmed by a building cacophony of samples. Dynamics and discord will only get you so far though, and on '70+a=' Group A also surprise by showing a nascent talent in more straightforward aspects of songwriting. Labyrinth may take the form of an abstract drone, but its superficially amorphous structure gradually reveals an Enoesque, Velvetsy ebb and flow that goes beyond soundscapery. Somewhere in its black mechanical heart "Suffocated" is an actual for real pop song (in the early 80's French minimal wave Kas Product sense at least). While Group A undoubtedly remain in thrall to their impeccably cool influences, '70+a=' also shows a group continuing to push their own creative envelope. Over the relatively short period since their 2013 debut, they have grown from a wild, raucous live conceptual art experience into something far more musical, and they don't appear to be slowing down.

Months later the band finally got a contract with a spanish label to record and release their debut album '1988'. 27 years later this influential and cult techno-pop album is back to life.

missing tapes


Artist : Das Ding 

Label : Minimal Wave 

missing tapes / LP

Strong album of long lost tracks by Dutch electronic music pioneer Das Ding, entitled 'Missing Tapes'. Danny Bosten formed Das Ding as a solo project in the early 80's and released his music and friends' music via his own cassette label called Tear Apart Tapes. At the time, he was studying graphic design at art school, and in turn he ended up designing the artwork, cassette-sleeves and illustrations for the label himself. Meanwhile, he recorded his own music as Das Ding. Powerful dark electro, he made several addictive and danceable tracks which later become hits. Danny made all his music in his bedroom which essentially turned into a small recording studio. He went on to release many of his own tapes and also played some live gigs. Old tapes were uncovered around 2010, and MW released a remastered version of 'H.S.T.A.' and select other tracks. A wave of renewed interest followed the record's release and soon people were in touch to propose live shows. 20 years later, and after some deliberation, Das Ding was reincarnated under its old moniker but now with a revised line-up and a working set-up that reflected inevitable technological change. Recently, Danny came across further tape archives from those early days. And from the batch, MW selected their favorites to present us in vinyl release form. 'Missing Tapes' is a limited edition LP pressed on 180gr creamy yellow vinyl, and housed in a heavy weight printed glossy black and white sleeve featuring one of Danny's original illustrations from 1982. Essential !

the invitation of the dead


Artist : Tomo Akikawabaya 

Label : Minimal Wave 

the invitation of the dead / 2x12"

Exquisite double LP release by obscure Japanese artist Tomo Akikawabaya. After working through the track selection and artwork ideas, MW & Akikawabaya came up with the release plan. 'The Invitation Of The Dead' is a collection of songs include the entirety of both The Castle (1984) and Anju (1985) releases, all newly remastered. They sound fresher and stronger than ever before, exactly as the artist had intended them to sound when he recorded them 30 years ago. The songs that span this double LP are personal and unique; they are dark synth-pop gems. The artist still remains a mystery, as does his relationship to the model Rena Anju featured on this and all but one of his album covers (Kojiki to Onna). 'The Invitation Of The Dead' double LP is a limited edition of 999 copies. Edition pressed on 160gr black vinyl for the A/B sides and white vinyl for the C/D sides. It is presented in a gatefold sleeve designed by Peter Miles featuring cover photo by Alao Yokogi.

adieux au dancefloor


Artist : Marie Davidson 

Label : Cititrax 

adieux au dancefloor / LP

New full length LP entitled 'Adieux Au Dancefloor' by Montreal based recording artist, Marie Davidson. She has emerged as one of the foremost electronic artists working in contemporary pop today. As a long-time member of Essaie Pas, Davidson has had the opportunity to hone her many talents. She has been participating in the city's vibrant experimental community for much of her adult life. However, in 2012 she began to unveil compositions under her own name, revealing a solo artist who possessed the combined confidence and vulnerability required to write, produce and perform unaccompanied. Davidson's intimate solo work is embodied through a host of synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines which coalesce in synchronized harmony, punctuated by vocals, half sung, half spoken in both French & English. She masterfully shapes the overall mood, themes, emotion, expression and intensity of her work, which gives the final result a distinctive, cinematic quality. With 'Adieux Au Dancefloor', Marie makes a slight departure from her last 2 releases, released on Holodeck (in 2015) and Weyrd Son Records (in 2014), by creating her 1st fully dancefloor oriented piece of work. Through the 45 minutes of music that comprises the album, she experiments with pop structures, defines her voice, and layers rhythms to make complex and beautiful techno tracks. She closes the album with the title track in classic 'chanson' style. 'Adieux Au Dancefloor' will be released in early October. Pressed on 160gr white vinyl and will feature photographs by the equally talented Corinne Schiavone. The record is housed in a full color printed heavyweight jacket along with matching printed inner sleeve.

le désordre et la nuit


Artist : Amato 

Label : Cititrax 

le désordre et la nuit / 12"

4-song debut ep by The Hacker's new project called Amato. Influenced by early EBM, German techno and new-wave, Michel Amato (aka The Hacker) began producing tracks under his new moniker Amato in 2014. The 1st one to be released, called 'Physique', came out in 2015 on the Cititrax 'Tracks Volume 1' ep and was a dancefloor success. On this EP entitled 'Le Désordre Et La Nuit', Amato integrates his love of the new-wave to form 4 EBM tinged techno funk hits. Very dancefloor friendly, these tracks take pop elements reminiscent of Belgian body music and bring them to the present day. Amato shines as a producer here, as he has so many times before. It's an absolute honor for us to release this debut project. Artwork is sourced from photographs taken in NYC in the 80's with layout by Veronica Vasicka. Limited to 999 copies pressed on 160gr silver vinyl and accompanied by jackets printed on a matte heavyweight cardstock printed sleeve.

suburban hunting


Artist : Broken English Club 

Label : Cititrax 

suburban hunting / 2x12"

Full length double album by key Cititrax artist Broken English Club. After the strong reception of his split ep with Silent Servant, solo work for both Cititrax and Jealous God, and recent feature on the Cititrax: 'Tracks Volume 1' ep, Oliver Ho (also known for his Raudive alias) expands upon the themes in his earlier output. Now though, he is presenting Broken English Club as the multifaceted project that it is. He fearlessly exposes a range of emotion through varying sound, texture and song structure. The result is a manifestation of his influences (post punk, noise, techno, grindcore) melded into his own unique vision and culminating in an album that sounds absolutely massive, both on and off the dancefloor. Pressed on 160gr splattered black and clear double vinyl limited to 999 copies, housed in a heavy weight high gloss sleeve, featuring art direction by Veronica Vasicka and Silent Servant, with photography by Corinne Schiavone.

4-song ep by Broken English Club. After the strong reception of the 'Violence & Divinity' split with Silent Servant as well as his solo ep for Jealous God, here Oliver Ho (also known for his Raudive alias) continues in a similar vein, delivering sparse vocals and shards of live instrumentation over heavy, stuttering beats and bleak synths. The tracks on this ep are rich and darkly atmospheric, pulsating loudly through a smog filled dancefloor. A subversive spin on dance music, the blank-stared, pin-point-focused electronics and layers of noise betray no/wave and post punk influences, dragging together industrial experimentation and pitch-black techno. Artwork designed by Veronica Vasicka and sourced from the archives of Silent Servant, the Broken English 'Scars' ep features a one of a kind vinyl pressing of white inside clear. Limited to 999 copies and housed in a matte printed sleeve.

violent rains


Artist : Minuit Machine 

Label : No Emb Blanc 

violent rains / LP+CD

Paris synth duo Minuit Machine have been working through the paces of dark, moody coldwave at a fair clip. Their 2013 debut ep 'Blue Moon' showed a keen ear for using synth pads and harmonics to strike a melancholy mood, and 1st LP 'Live & Destroy' showed them working in punchier and more uptempo tracks into the mix. 2nd full-length 'Violent Rains' connects all of these points and styles together quite smoothly, but perhaps more impressive is the emotional intensity communicated by its production and vocals. The style of the record is classic French coldwave, but the service into which the synths are pressed shows a keen awareness of how electronics have been used in all manner of dark music since that genre's heyday. Check the dead simple opening of "Battles": a heavily-gated drum track spits along plainly, and a simple broken arpeggio carries things along through the verse with aplomb. The desperate, anthemic chorus feels straight out of the early 80's, but the relative warmth and bounce of the synths which run through the verse make the whole affair much more immediate and present. Making classic archetypes feel contemporary in mood is perhaps a far trickier task than simply 'updating' a sound, but Minuit Machine feel very much of the current day. The vocals of Amandine Stioui, though, are 'Violent Rains'..I don’t want to say secret weapon (as they’re never hidden or downplayed in the mix), but the role they play in maintaining the otherworldly passion connoted by the instrumentation can't be understated. Comparisons to Clan of Xymox's Anka Wolbert, Kirlian Camera's Emilia Lo Jacono, and even Zola Jesus seem warranted, but it's what Stioui does with her naturally commanding register that matters. There's a defiant fatalism which runs through the record. 'You and me, we were doomed before we were born' she intones on "Everlasting", a tale of a self-immolating relationship which continues on in spite of itself. A more existential message of resistance is found on the aforementioned "Battles": 'There's no hero, no God to protect us / We're alone when the darkness surrounds us / Life is ours, no one will ruin it for us'. Even the less extreme moments on the record, like reflective character study "Honey", are given extra emotional heft by Stioui's vocals. The sheer volume of talented young dark synth acts on the rise in Europe can be staggering and nigh impossible to track at times. Influences are certainly worn on sleeves and Minuit Machine are no exception, but what separates the wheat from the chaff is whether those classic sounds are being imitated or used as a toolset for exploring themes and ideas which are come by honestly. The emotion of Minuit Machine’s music, rife with drama and gothic excess, leaves no question as to their motives. Buy It !



Artist : Profil 

Label : Genetic Music 

untitled / LP+CD

The Profil album has originally been released on the Welt-Rekord label in 1982 and with hits like "Berühren" and "Ich Liebe Dich" it has become a milestone in the German NDW genre. Heinz Robert Martin, the main man behind Profil, always would have loved to see the album come out as a picture vinyl and because it has also never been released on CD we are happy to present this nice package: the original album remastered on a picture LP including a full colour 21x21cm inlay with a version of the original artwork plus a postcard and sticker and including the CD featuring 3 bonus tracks (the maxi version of "Berühren" and 2 B-sides). Ace !

paranormale aktivität / 2x12"

Zwischenwelt is the paranormal audio/visual concern of Susana Correira, Beta Evers & Penelope Martin alongside esteemed ex-Drexciya producer, Heinrich Mueller (aka Dopplereffekt / Arpanet / Der Zyklus). Zwischenwelt is similar in style and sound to Mueller's almost indivisible Black Replica and Zerkalo projects of the last few years, which were coincidentally coordinated with a strong female presence. Originally CD only release on Rephlex Records. One of the best record album from 2016 !!

Many records are planned and in the making right now for the future to be heard. This 12" has a nice mix from E.R.P's more 4/4 and harmonic melodies to more stiff electro-funk from up north. Here we go...

Unmissable stuff finally available on vinyl again after being out of print for a long time..

Closing the Hubble telescope trilogy which brought to you Luxus Varta and more recently E.R.P. (respectively with the 'Everything Is Nothing' and 'Ancient Light' ep's), trippy 'Spiralgalaxie' will mark a new step in SOM's history.
