Selofan - Cine Romance

2017-04-21 (News)

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 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. The album is singular in concept but varies in genres: dark-wave treasures, synth-punk spells, melodic saxophone fairy-tales and early industrial beats coexist in harmony, while a voice sings or whispers poems of great emotional tension in different languages, exposing uncomfortable truths.

Mesh - Runway

2017-04-20 (News)

"Runway" is the second single from the latest Mesh's album. In contrast to its more rocking predecessor "Kill Your Darlings," "Runway" is a pure club track with a killer hook line and a killer bass line bound to make waves on the dancefloors of the world. With "Too little too late" and the cover version of Yazoo's classic "Tuesday", you'll get two excellent B-sides as well.

The Vacant Lots - Endless Night

2017-04-20 (News)

The Vacant Lots new album "Endless Night" channels the pairs dual power through their minimal means maximum effect aesthetic. Endless Night is a bridge of two worlds with one foot firmly placed in hard-hitting rock and roll, and the other in the realm of electronic dance.
Casting light from this noir-esque world, "Endless Night" offers a fresh take on familiar experiences while exploring love, death, and life. Poetic, but with a streetwise swagger, The Vacant Lots™ dark electro psych approach captures recurring notions of duality through a dizzying and hypnotic blast of guitar riffs and revved-up electronics on tracks like "Night Nurse" and "œElevation".
Through a detached yet accessibly channeled dark-pop vision, and electrifying primitive punk spirit, The Vacant Lots cut through the dark - an experience they genuinely understand after working with their hero, friend and punk ally, Suicide's Alan Vega.

Dive - Underneath

2017-04-18 (News)

Belgian electronic pioneer Dirk Ivens unleashes the eagerly awaited new album of his cult project Dive. "Underneath" is another masterpiece of dark minimalist Electro-art.
After a hiatus of more than a decade, Dirk Ivens' project Dive finally returns with a new sign of life. For the new album "Underneath", he has again teamed up with Ivan Iusco and Rafael M. Espinosa. The result is a maelstrom of minimalist Electronica that ranges from fascinating to unsettling: Stripped-bare rhythms, dark, machine-like sequencers, psychotic synth-sounds that are expertly intertwined with cleverly placed noise-attacks and the distinctive, feverishly manic and ghostly raw voice of Dirk Ivens towering above it all.
Some tracks, like the groovy "Far Away" or the hammering "Something" have turned out surprisingly catchy, but as a whole "Underneath" is a menacing behemoth that relentlessly pulls the listener into its dark machine world.
