Daniel B. Prothèse - AIIHB0A02017-01-24 (News)
"The project started as noise for personal pleasure", Daniel B. says. This release is a collection of tracks shaped and mixed between approximately 1995 and 2010. "The recording process was one of voluntary limits, no use of midi, only analogue (some really old) sound generating equipment and sequencer, no more than 8 recorded tracks… and a few digitally mistreated drum sounds were also used, that’s all!" Daniel B. explains.
Vintage sound is generated by studio equipment and a part of Daniel B.’s personal collection: formant modular, system 101-102, system 100M, roland se 505, boss rvb 100, moog voyager anniversary #614, electro harmonix sequencer drum, yamaha 40m #Z699, mfb synth II, Sherman filter model 1 # 909, arp odyssey…
Psychic Force - Welcome To ScarCity2017-01-23 (News)
With their new full length album "Welcome To ScarCity" the The Psychic Force gang unites their old school EBM roots with their personal music spectrum evolution throughout the years, towards more modern and melodic forms of electronics.
A flight forward journey at full speed rolled-out in some 13 songs bringing us to dark oppressive cinematic industrial territories full of sample manipulations like the opening "Welcome To ScarCity", the lingering "Die In The Clinic", the upbeat "Painful Revelation" or the noir "BeDevil".
In short: "ScarCity" offers you a challenging mixture of icy EBM, harsh elektro and catchy synth melodies marking a solid return on the forefront of the dark EBM scene for The Psychic Force nicely rendered by the apocalyptic noir design of n0emi Aurora of Toxic Visions.
LPF12 - Missiles2017-01-22 (News)
Sascha Lemon: '"Missiles" is rough, dissonant at times. It's melodic, sad and tragic (...).
I played with various influences like IDM, Ambient and film scoring. I used african percussion, acoustic guitar, strings and the beloved piano. But the carrier of it all is always the electronics.
"Missiles" is a deep and disturbing trip into my heart and soul - perhaps deeper than ever before. The music may be uncomfortable sometimes, and it is definitely edgy and unexpectable.
"Missiles" is me.
