Somewhere in Berlin during a cold and foggy winter: Hyboid is recording his album “Sequencing the Apocalypse” directly to a 2-track recorder, using analog synthesizers and a couple of old effects units. Raw and no-frills. Influenced by the great French and German pioneers of the 70s, this is a soundtrack for dystopian minds in dystopian times.

VA – Essere EP [AH001]
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’.
VA – Femur Parte 1 [CDR006]
The 6th reference of Clasicos del Ruido is the result of a collaboration with Aitor Arch and Femur Club (club of reference in Madrid), and it is exclusively produced by artists who have performed at this well-known parties. The record opens with ‘Utopia’, a luminous, evocative and fascinating track by the German artist Hyboid, the undoubted leader of space and cosmic sounds. The British artist Kid Machine replicates on the same album side with the track ‘Fighting fears’, which includes echoes of disco and Den Haag sounds. On the other side of this 12inch, we will listen first to ‘Monologues’, a hypnotic-percussive track signed by the renowned French artist In Aeternam Vale. ‘Non auro, sed ferro’ by Hesperius Draco closes down the album, fizzing among their usual coordinates: horror disco, retro wave and soundtrack sounds. An album that brings together different artistic sensibilities in which both Clasicos del Ruido and Femur feel comfortable.
Kurt Y. Godel – Chord Rememory [YUY009]
“Chord Memory” the hymn for the widely used feature in 80s hardware synthesizers got some individual rewiring done. If ten fingers ain’t enough Hyboid uses his Galactic Memory for punchy disco purposes while Robyrt Hecht reaches for a swinging Pivot Memory to sweep and swipe your electro habits. On the other hand Milium likes the exposed wires of his Mutiny Memory to revolt whereas CCO simulates his natural Echoic Memory with floating acid sparks. Completing the mechanical rewiring the duo Nachtzug added delicate software to Execute the algorithms and installed a Memory Loss button, if you are in need of a reset.
