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.

Hecq - Chansons de Geste

2017-08-30 (News)

With 'Chansons de Geste' Hecq presents a very personal release, conceived as a memorial and dedication to bygone events and individuals. The basic sources for the eleven haunting tracks were original tape recordings Boysen and his family members made decades ago for private use, ranging from piano etudes to classical works of composers like J.S. Bach and Johannes Brahms.
Tracks were restored, to revived and re-arranged. Each tape was digitized to hard disc, loops and patches were extracted from this sound pool, and the collection was recorded once again.
The tapes were taken and played back inside a church where the natural reverb of the location was added and used as the master recording.
