Opening up the compilation is Antoni Maiovvi’s android lullaby ‘The Wolf Void’ followed by the pulsating analog rhythms of Das Ding’s epic (almost) 9- minute synthetic trip ‘Insect Apocalypse’. On the flip, Itako carries forward the sinister momentum leaving us in a dark state of hypnosis with its spectral synth and acid lines. Last but by no means least, Timothy J.

It took a while before it was this. It was a place to find clothes made by people lost in a minefield of ideas who liked to party. It was a place for temporary visions that turned out to happen and were then forgotten. It was always a place to find a new circle of friends. A place for expression where the throttle had been loosened and we all careered into the next day and the day after that. We all need to meet in the flesh away from the pixels and connect our first thoughts. Somewhere to ruffle our own feathers and take off on a phantom flight. It has been all this and it still is. Only now there is a record label to try and actually document a little of all of that. Welcome to Sameheads. This record is a morsel from the community. Novo Line, Twoonky, Kruton, Kris Baha and Antoni Maovvi and Balance Crew aka Dane Close & L. Zylberberg. Six acts whose sweat is in the carpet and who all owe more than seven euros to the place for one reason or another. Six songs that electrify a new way to no wave. Don’t forget, this a mince based dish.
A new work produced by Zurich Dada, a duo from Porto, who play a kind of calm and melancholic Synth Pop. The release comes with two original tracks from them. On side A with ‘Peta Bytes’, which includes Antoni Maiovvi and Franck Kartell remixes, who are back on Aspecto Humano. On side B is included ‘Kites’ with a banger remix from the house by Anbau.
The franchise goes one cut deeper as Parasols AKA Ali Renault and Antoni Maiovvi team up on this dark as hell during an eclipse set of grime soaked grease sleazers. Parasols throws forth two sharp as blades numbers with a guest appearance by the one and only Unit Black Flight with his first ever remix. Antoni Maiovvi closes things with something from the vaults, the 808 and sub bass sleekness of Shivers, remixed by Black Metal EBM overlord Equitant. Guaranteed nightclub nightmares as we put on the gloves one more time.
Helena Hauff’s label is back, this time presenting a various artists 12″ that heralds the start of the No Return series. The release starts on a mystical bent with the Eastern-tinged death electro of “El Carmel”, sounding ripe for a Hague-friendly warm-up session. Neud Photo then take over with a dystopian trip through rich synth tones coloured in dark hues for the bleakest of robotic fantasies. Antoni Maiovvi fills the B-side with the slow grinding bombast of “The Dig”, bleeding out a noirish take on coldwave for the darkest hearts to swoon to.
An addendum horrificata to the fantastic LP, Haex-Hrll AKA DJ Overdose returns from the nether regions of space with a louder dancefloor cut of sleeper hit ‘North Of Warren’ accompanied by witchy and dread filled extras. Remixes are provided by label heads Antoni Maiovvi who takes Test Tube Babies from the ‘Further From The Truth’ LP into tripped out waters and Vercetti Technicolor, who reimagines ‘North Of Warren’ for blood-soaked 90s Hollywood vampires.
Dalmata Daniel’s next up is a collaboration with the Bristol-born – weirdo disco guy’ Antoni Maiovvi and also a contribution of Heinrich Dressel who is an unavoidable column of Rome’s electronic music scene. Maiovvi’s Pleasure Model project is all about youth – replaced by Blade Runner-esque replicas. It aimed for presenting a persuasive world of fiber optic paranoia and technoid effacement. The tracks are driven by the characteristic haggard drum machine’s sound on side A with a melancholic or dark synth themes what becomes a dreamy melody in the – Prism Riot’ on side B. The remix by Heinrich Dressel is a turn back directly into the darkness, but it is faster and more like a film soundtrack with his own characteristics, of course. The whole EP has a strong vintage mood and sound.
The second Driftmusic release coming from Antoni Maiovvi. Further explorations of the deepest roots of Avrokosm, where occult still means hidden. Three cuts of electronic will, from the primordial ooze with a desire to simply be. Out of the gate, crown of light, come on, come on, this is now. Twisted 808s, melodic tripmuzik seduction, like the flares of 1000 suns. Swim through space with us.
Exploring the deep roots of Avrokosm, where occult still means hidden, starting in reverse. Best foot forward, two epic Reich-esque ttrriippmuzik cuts exploring rhythm, harmony and polymeter. Beyond the cloud suckerpunches of non giallo, un-trance tech-disco Glass-spacerock. Non academic explosions of synthetic joy.
The debut release of Aspecto Humano, label based in Barcelona, is being presented as a sampler composed of five tracks, which clearly shows the label’s preferences and what to be found in the future. The first track is the new version of Das Ding’s classic ‘H.S.T.A.’, a jewel that has not been pressed on vinyl to date. Follows ‘Extraterrestrial Biological Entity’, a killer track made by master of horror Antoni Maiovvi, and finish the side Hyboid with his well known synthwave ‘Telepath or Psycopath’. On the other side the debut of part of Aspecto Humano founders, Anbau, with their kraftwerkian ‘Disco Z’. Ends the reference Synth Alien, one of the most reputated spanish artists at the moment, focused to burn the dancefloor with his ‘Bailarina Automatica’.
Anton Maiovvi with a new release on Schrödinger’s Box . This Bristol born soundtrack virtuoso, italo disco savant and all round electronic guru has travelled labels far and wide with his smorgasbord sound. And that variety is plain to hear on “Will to Powder”. From the epic opener of ”Clocks”, Maiovvi leads you through his labyrinthine hall of shapes and sounds. Expect warming melodies, cold beats, shimmering synthwork, brazen experimentation, a decent dollop of slasher scores and a pinch new wave romance in this.
