Daniel Holt – Untitled [LIES130]

One half of the group Vault, Daniel Holt makes his solo 12 inch debut on L.I.E.S. with a killer three tracker. Holt immediately locks in on the a-side with the massive 11:00 minute electro-wave groover ”Demonic City”, think heavy fm synth bass, graveyard strings, and Alesis drum machines all coming together creating a sullen and hypnotic gothic-funk cut, yes that’s right, gothic funk (you heard it right). Turn to the b-side for two more wave style jams, top production on both…exploring the realms of downbeat electronics throughout. Huge debut by this up and coming American artist.

St. Theodore – Last Dance [CDR009]

St Theodore presents his brand-new EP “Last Dance” on Clasicos Del Ruido. This is a slow, true immersion in cold and even sometimes frightening work. Minimalistic basslines, cold synthesizers, simplicity and accuracy of compositions cause aesthetic delight. The classical TB-303 sound takes to memories of raves in the buildings of former factories, where you always feel very far from reality.
