Press Info:
YGAM presents Les Bergers du Galetas, Magnétisme Animal’s debut EP, in which they share their intimate view of society.



Formed by brg and Catartsis, the French duo invites the listeners to dive into a journey through the density of the modern metropolis. In a time of materialistic fetishism, where superficial occurrences and capitalism rule, the 4-track EP acts in opposition to these current matters. However, rather than trying to create a contrasting sonic landscape, Magnétisme Animal use sounds recorded in their environment to elaborate pieces that bear the heavy and frenetic industrial atmosphere of our urban sceneries. All sorts of clanging metal, steam discharge, electromagnetic static noise, train rails frictions, sirens and distant traffic, are combined with breathing, footsteps and vocal humming to create an oddly industrial as much as organic soundscape. The EP starts with a noise track that recalls some of the compositional processes of musique concrète, to then slowly drifts towards rhythmically oriented pieces. Être c’est être coincé, with its ponderous bass and distortion work, appears as a peculiar blending of noise and techno, while L’Enthousiasme des statues displays a more traditional and dance floor approach to rhythm and drums, but still leaves space for an uncanny sound decor to unfold. The project ends with La Toute-Toute, a repetitive ambient track filled with subtle sounds, where one can wander as spoken words underline a sense of melancholy. Les Bergers du Galetas is an unsettling industrial tapestry, a strange study of noises, that depicts the contemporary frenzy of the artists’ environments they referred to as the urban jungle. A landscape where one is a witness of the disparity of human conditions, where mind and body coexist with difficulty, where one is subject to conformism, where one is lost in the smog while carried by the masses through the cemented maze.

out now: Theus Mago & Local Suicide – Komm ins Loch EP [Duro]

 

Artist:
Theus Mago & Local Suicide

 

Title:
Komm ins Loch EP

 

Label:
Duro

 

Cat#:
DURO014

 

Release Date:
18th January 2019

 

Format:
digital

 

Tracklist:
1.
Komm ins Loch

2.
Komm ins Loch
(Aera Remix)

3.
Komm ins Loch
(Colossio Remix)

 

Press Info:
After a fantastic solo single in late 2018, Theus Mago is back with more club heat, this time in collaboration with the Local Suicide duo on his own co-run Duro label, while Aera and Colossio remix. Theus Mago is the alter-ego of established Mexican producer Mateo González. Responsible for projects such as Bufi (Kitsuné/Discotexas) and Sonido Fantasma (Turbo Recordings) he has a deeply expressive, freeform sound that mixes darker moods with beautiful synths. After releasing a series of EPs inspired by Philip K. Dick’s Ubik, he now works with Berlin-based DJs and real-life couple Brax Moody (Munich) and Vamparela (Thessaloniki) who have been collaborating and making waves together since 2007. The pair has found success releasing on Canada’s My Favorite Robot Records and Multi Culti, and San Francisco‘s Roam. The excellent lead single has lyrics translated from German to English as ‘Come Into The Hole’. This double entendre can be taken as the never-ending vortex of deep space, as well as the dark recesses of underground clubs, which is where the track will resonate. It has sparkling keys and droning synths laid over big rubbery kicks. Post- punk vocals bring a dark energy and slight EBM feel as the jacking percussion drives it along and gets the floor in a sweat. The first fantastic remix comes from Aera, who has recently released his own album ‘The Sound Path’ on Permanent Vacation. With a heavy hand on the filter, Aera removes most of the sparkling highs of the track in favour of its more foreboding frequencies. His remix was one of the highlights at the Innervisions Off Sonar Open Air event, during Áme‘s back to back set with Dixon and at Tomorrowland during Solomun‘s set. On the flip side, Colossio’s vital interpretation of the track is brighter, as the Mexican artist who recently made a debut splash with his four track EP ‘Moto’ on Calypso Records, enlivens and accentuates the vocals, making for something that is fresh and arresting. This is another excellent release from this young but essential and rapidly growing label.

Press Info:
For our eleventh release we are excited to be working with five artists who are all new to the label.

Rendered open proceedings on side A with a nod to COIL in their psychedelically propulsive workout Analstairface. End Train follows, steering his machines with tactile precision between acerbic acid lines and cavernous synths, crashing through a brutal onslaught of splintered beats that finally open into space.

Side B starts with the claustrophobic tension of WarinD’s Still Left In There, featuring Huren’s disembodied snarl, tearing at the relentless machine funk. This is followed by the insistent, martial urgency of Distant’s Hydrargyra, scaling vast heights of immaculate sonic architecture to an emotional pinnacle that is finally resolved in the EBM drenched romanticism of Lapse of Reason’s Go Away.
