Out now: R A D K O, Bebe Fang, Monocorpse and The Untitled

Out now are the latest four releases on Enfant Terrible, Vrystaete and Gooiland Elektro.

On Gooiland Elektro Monocorpse and The Untitled have appeared. Monocorpse already with this third 12″ EP and The Untitled with his debut on Gooiland Elektro/Enfant Terrible. Of course The Untitled has released way more before on his own label and other labels… check out his harsh acid/techno music here…

Monocorpse delivers his finest (in my opinion) EP up till now… a strange mix of soundtrack and dance floor minded stuff… like always dark and moody… you can find all the infos and sound previews here… and check out a video for this record below…

R A D K O from Italo deliver their debut 7″ with two tracks which border new wave, cold wave, shoegaze and even indie music in some ways… there is a video below and all infos are to be found here…

On Vrystaete comes the Bebe Fang LP… a personal favourite of mine… a haunting mix of lo-fi, ambient, folklore, ritual and psychedelic music… something I would like to invite you to explore yourself… get a taste of it here…

Gifgrond (again) – saturday 18th November

This January we kicked off the year with a party at Gifgrond… and now we return to this awesome spot in Tilburg (NL) to sort of close the year…

The line-up features Staatseinde and Garçon Taupe… both Dutch projects that recently released records on Enfant Terrible… so I consider this a delayed release party for these acts…

Staatseinde will bring their elektro pop live in stage and Garçon Taupe will perform live his acid trax…

Next to that TWINS from the USA will kick off his first European tour that night… his latest album from last year (Rather Not, Enfant Terrible 2016) got great feedback due to the original blending of styles like elektro, EBM, new wave, post-punk and more… A new 7″ is planned for the first part of 2018… also on Enfant Terrible…

Throughout the night I will spin records… and hopefully there will be some dancers / clubbers to close to night with…

 

Ramplingg + homemade vinyls

Ramplingg is the solo project by Sara from Diverting Duo… this solo endeavour is a bit darker as her collaboration project… more dark wave and new wave minded and less synth pop / indie pop in mood and style… These five tracks take you on a dark trip for sure!

This debut is a super nice CD which comes in a LP style cardboard inner and outer sleeve. It is released in collaboration between Tiny Speaker ad Etch Wear. There is also a super limited 10″ version featuring one track from the CD and a remix… This vinyl is handcut / homemade at Etch Wear HQ in Norway… and is part of the recent explorations by Etch Wear in homemade vinyls… super cool and more DIY is not possible…

Below one of the tracks from the Rampling CD… and the CD is also available from the ET webshop…

dj M. – Lesson #70

A new dj set/ mixtape I did is posted on my mixcloud now… it was recorded for the December 2016 episode of Radio Resistencia transmitted through Intergalactic FM… as always as part of the Black Monday program…

This time their are industrial, minimal electronics, post-punk and new wave sounds in the mix… from bands like Onmens, Diverting Duo, TWINS, Antlers Mulm, Group A, Neugeborene Nachtmusik, Europ Europ, Boy Harsher and more…

Some (big) tips…

Recently quite some records found its way to me I am enjoying a lot… and I do not want to keep these to myself… like I do sometimes…

First of all the Huren split 12″ EP released by Noiztank is a true must have for fans of industrial and (harsh) techno alike… the other side is by Kareem… nice too but not as mind blowing as the Huren tracks… a perfect blending of industrial and techno… and even though this is a trend nowadays these tracks stands out in between the bunch of releases in this style… well here is one of the two tracks… what else can I say… you better listen for yourself…

Then there was this nice surprise by Group A… they released their vinyl debut on Mecanica… known for their shop in Mexico City but since some time also a label from Poland… this record triggered me as in a way it fits in with the still going on minimal synth trend but it is different… more adventurous… rougher… edgy… more industrial… here is the stand out track from the album… dancefloor orientated minimal synth with a raw side to it…

More poppy is Kim Ki O… a band I do not need to introduce here… I hope… with several collaborations on Enfant Terrible this Turkish duo is not a new name around… what is new is the re-release of both their first self released cd-r’s from 2007 and 2008… and these are now released on tape by Sea State… the quite new label run by Antlers Mulm… these old tracks by Kim Ki O have lost nothing of their charm and quality… you simply got to love these lo-fi electronic post-punk/new wave tunes… here is the band performing one of these older pieces live…

Then today arrived the debut 7 inch by Anesthetic… super nice synth/elektro-pop tunes released by Kernkrach and already among my favourite synth pop records from this year… the two tracks on the 7 inch are real catchy and could go for demo takes by Ladytron… and I mean this in the most positive way possible… really cool! Too bad I cannot find a full track yet on the internet…

All of these releases are available in small numbers in my webshop… for the real freaks and fans and lovers…
