Press Info:
Arthur Robert is the terrestrial antenna to receive the 8th transmission from our homeworld of Planet X. The message brings fragmented bits of sound and sight as our former world passes the event horizon of its neighbouring SMBH and ascends slowly into singularity.

His interpretation give us the feeling of hurling thru unknown space at the speed of light while being absolutely still in our cocoon of sound. The deep pounding rhythm driving us forward while the cloustrophobic yet mesmerizing melodies guide us thru the wastness of open space, giving us glimpses of a world past his point of no return.

As we welcome Robert to our roster of acoustonauts and thank you for your continued support over the years, we look forward to share with you even more and exciting explorations from the space of Planet X.

Press Info (German Only):
35 Jahre: The Great Commandment – Die 10″ Vinyl Re-Issue

Im September 1987, vor genau 35 Jahren, veröffentlichte die deutsche Synth-Pop Band Camouflage ihre Debüt Single The Great Commandment, welche sie über alle Ländergrenzen hinaus berühmt machte.
Anlässlich dieses großen Jubiläums, überrascht das Trio um Heiko Maile, Marcus Meyn und Oliver Kreyssig, nun ihre Fans mit einer besonderen Neuauflage der erfolgreichen Single, welche am 23. September 2022 als 10″ Vinyl in neuem Gewand erscheinen wird.

Ursprünglich, aus der reinen Freude am Musizieren als Demo aufgenommen, entstand zwischen 1983 und 1985 in einem Keller der Eltern, irgendwo im schwäbischen Randgebiet von Stuttgart, etwas, das sich nur wenige Jahre später als Welt-Hit herausstellen sollte.

Nachdem man zunächst erfolgreich durch sämtliche Indie-Radiosender rotierte, kletterte Camouflage mit ihrem Genre-definierenden Sound bis auf Platz 14 der deutschen Charts.
Doch damit nicht genug. In den USA gelang der Band sogar die erste Spitzenplatzierung: Platz 1 in den amerikanischen Billboard Dance Music/Club Single Charts, wo der Hit Song für 3 Wochen verweilen konnte. Selbst in den Billboard Top 200 ging es hoch bis auf Platz 59.

Camouflage steht wie kaum eine andere deutsche Band, stellvertretend für den Sound der 80er Jahre und lädt nun mit der neuen Vinyl Re-Issue der Single, ein auf eine Zeitreise in die Vergangenheit, welche nie so modern klang wie mit The Great Commandment.

Segment

 

Press Info:
With his return on VOLTAGE Imprint, Border One serves up a 4 cut classy & club-focused EP, ensuring an eyes-closed though body-moving experience from the get go.

Border One opens up in typical no-nonsense fashion before the elevating melody & refined drum patterns take the upper hand, not holding anything back to start the EP off with a dance floor magnet. Mysteriousness and suspense skyrocket during the second track, Coplanar, giving our imagination room to explore under the guidance of a crystal clear trade-off between drums & hats.

Mystery turns into tension & nervousness, as the B-side opener ‘Rhombus’ rumbles with hypnotism, then gives us a small breather at the halfway point before moving on to what seems to be a never-ending groove. Punchy kicks lead us into VOLT010’s closer – Segment – creating a strong foundation for a deep club track with expert attention to detail.

Press Info:
When Greco-German couple Local Suicide and New York City native Curses met in Berlin, the epicenter of electronic music, their artistic chemistry was immediately obvious. This chance meeting resulted in several fructuous collaborations, with the latest being ‘Magia’, a dark and mysterious four-track EP. This release represents the perfect opportunity for the artists to take the genre-bending blend of 80’s new wave, dark disco and ghostly vocals that have earned their previous collaborations unanimous praise to a whole new level.

The EP comes after an impressively prolific year for the ever-busy Local Suicide powerhouse, following the release of their globally acclaimed debut album ‘Eros Anikate’ with collaborations with The Hidden Cameras, Lena Platonos, Theus Mago and Curses himself, as well as four remixes EPs featuring remixes by household names such as Adana Twins, Silicone Soul, Echonomist, Biesmans, Die Selektion and many more on top of a hectic touring schedule.

The multi-talented artist and head of the Ombra International label Curses also recently released his darkly romantic second album ‘Incarnadine’ with features from Jennifer Touch and Terr, following an acclaimed first album on Jennifer Cardini’s Dischi Autunno imprint. For this collaboration, he lends his distinctive sound signature that incorporates punk, Italo Disco, and EBM influences for a somber and nostalgic sound.

The EP’s title track ‘Magia’, immediately puts the listener under its spell with its dystopian atmosphere, as cold and distant voices echo eerily behind the relentless beat and unsettling looping synths, before layering up into an intense but also strangely hopeful soundscape.

The beautifully complex and moody ‘It All Sounds The Same’ then follows with its ethereal and ghostly vocals bleeding through the urgent rhythm. The alliteration of the lyrics contributes to creating an otherworldly, almost uneasy feeling echoed by the lonely voices lamenting that everything ‘sounds the same’.

The third track ‘Secret Friends’ opens up with cascading acid notes soon overtaken by the same driving beat as pulsing synths overlap each other in a frenzy while the vocals call out for a ‘secret friend’ with the seductive appeal of a mysterious, almost supernatural being.

Far from alleviating the tension that has been building up throughout the EP, the closing track, ‘Walk With Me’, feels like a frenzied and Lynchian musical descent into madness, as insistent notes become more and more distorted until they’re swallowed by the bassline and electric notes while barely human voices whisper menacingly, gasping and crossing overhead.

In true Local Suicide and Curses fashion, this EP feels like a masterfully crafted plunge into an unfamiliar world that will leave you wanting more. Tune in for the release on February 24th, 2022 via Local Suicide’s own label Iptamenos Discos.

Press Info:
The voyage through the braindead metaverse can now begin. It’s a journey into the undergrounds and depths of our collective unconsciousness rather than a journey to the artificial and digital world. We are here in search of the truth; we are not here to flee from the world.

We’ve been gathering the sounds that are best in sync with our Drec vision. The objective of this VA is to produce a body of sounds that blends the mechanical and the dynamic, the old and the new, while still capturing each distinct feature of the creator. This release uses 15 productions that speak for themselves to interpret various facets of a braindead metaverse.

Enjoy this sonic voyage!
