Gary Numan - Savage

2017-09-12 (News)

Gary Numan releases "Savage (Songs From A Broken World)" album, which has a narrative set in an apocalyptic, post-global warming Earth in the not-too-distant future. It’s a harsh, savage environment, as are the survivors who still roam across it.
"The songs are about the things that people do in such a harsh and terrifying environment," explains Numan. "It's about a desperate need to survive and they do awful things in order to do so, and some are haunted by what they've done. That desire to be forgiven."

La Scaltra - Freakshow

2017-09-11 (News)

"Freakshow" is an outstanding album by this eclectic and imaginative duo, which employs minimal synth with original New Wave embellished by a decent portion of post-Punk. Particularly the elementary melodies and arrangements comprising bass, guitar, synthesizer and drum computer, enhanced with aloof yet enchanting wave-like voices casting their irresistible spell.
"Freakshow" is uncompromisingly cold, dark and minimalistic, eerie and sinister not unlike a walk through an ancient cemetery draped in fog and moonlight. "Find beauty in darkness" is their motto!  La Scaltra represent the most gorgeous Gloomy-Goth, full of obscure creativity and heavenly tristesse.

Somatic Responses - Pattern Seeking

2017-09-08 (News)

Somatic Responses are an open-minded project concerning the vast array of contemporary electronic music.
Although a unique style is always visible, there never was any reserve involving various influences in their work. This stylistic care free attitude is an important element of the 'Pattern Seeking' release where the Healy brothers include many sonic directions from lush ambient to pounding techno, catchy electro and abstract breaks into one diversified and enthralling album - a coexistence of syncopated harshness and enigmatic ambience.

Dead Man Recovering - Panic In Slow Motion

2017-09-06 (News)

Dead Man Recovering's style has the rare ability to adapt perfectly and effortlessly to both easy and demanding listening. The Danish solo-act played by Kenneth Steen Larsen offers an unique musicality that is unequivocally inspired by the classic 80's electro-synthpopish reminiscences modernized by a personal avant-garde touch, with charming and suggestive melodies, always planned to capture you at first listening. The album "Panic In Slow Motion" is a suggestive document that will convince all fans of this specific genre. Its twelve tracks express freshness but also introspection, aesthetic sense and pleasant refinement, all through clear, intelligible vocals which embellish essential partitures of keyboard and drum-programming rhythms cadenced at variable speeds.

Fires - Red Goes Grey

2017-09-04 (News)

Nashville's Fires creates a compelling mix of American industrial, pop, & dark electronic with more than a touch of Synthwave. The album is influenced by the more pop elements of acts like Imperative Reaction, The Killers, Carpenter Brut, Survive & Kesha. Spawned during an intensely profound period of personal upheaval, every song on the LP breathes with emotionally charged intimacy.

Projekt 26 - Violets and Violence

2017-09-01 (News)

The german brothers Nico (Drums) and Timo T. (Vocals) established Projekt 26 back in 2013, when they successfully merged the raw power of Oldschool-EBM and catchy Synthpop-melodies, creating their own unique and exceptional sound.
Since 2015, Cyril M. (Synthesizer) and Tim B. (2. Synthesizer), complete the band as live-members to transport the energy of the sound properly on stage.
Projekt 26 already played Familientreffen Sandersleben XI and supported several well-known bands like Spark!, The Invincible Spirit or Velvet Acid Christ.
