The latest issue of “Internets most controversial underground e-zine” the Shadow Wolf Cyberzine issue#10 is out now on Nightwind Records. A 19 track ‘cover tape’ compilation with various artists. The term ‘cover tape’ stems from when magazines came with a cassette tape full of music or software on the cover back in the 1980s/1990s.
First release of Malmø’s Electro Label. Stunning 5 track VA record with loads of stiff Electro from the Scandinavian parts of the mind. Eargoggle, Obergman, Dip Shim, SPH Alliance and Babylon Barseback delivers a mix between classic Electro sounds, club bangers and Breaks and neo-trance atmospheres.
Stilleben with a new electro four bangerz EP.
Stilleben’s latest EP is a no-holds-barred, all-action affair that gathers together previously unheard cuts from a quintet of label associates. Boss man Luke Eargoggle is naturally involved, with his hook-up with Swedish veteran Ola Bergman – the angular analogue bass, Italo-disco influenced grooves and shimmering chords of “Macho Macho” – being amongst the EP’s many highlights. You’ll find more razor-sharp, mind-altering robo-bass propelling Das Muster’s brilliant opener “Sinnestauschung” towards the electro stratosphere, while IXRQ’s “Robotic Nature” brilliantly combines ghostly, crystalline synthesizer melodies with a suitably dirty, club-ready electro groove. The most intense and sweaty cut of the lot, though, is Suicider’s suitably dystopian and psychedelic closing cut “Trainwreck”.
A wild Electro / Trash Techno EP with full of heart and emotional feelings. It’s wild when it comes to the rhythm section, classic electro but also real punshing 4/4 beat. Emotional when it comes to the melodies.
The second volume of machine funk features the world famous Luke Eargoggle as well as the A.I. being, KROM3, Philadelphia’s Speaking Parts, and New York’s Heidi Sabertooth. Classic electro/techno tracks. Speaking Parts sounds like an industrial version of mid-80s LA electro. Sabertooth brings the funk with a detailed track which evolves as it plays.
Machines redefined and shaped the way we make music and gave access to new sounds. Enabling the availability of music instruments to a wider spectrum of artists gave birth to many genres and sound aesthetics. The sound of Roland machines from the 80’s have had a huge influence on underground music and is outstandingly beautiful. Therefore this very first Talking Machines v.a. is dedicated to the synthesizer Roland SH-101.
Four proper electro tracks made by a young Luke Eargoggle in the 90s.
Karl Lukas Pettersson has searched through his vaults of DAT tapes to create a personal album of lost projects, ideas and forgotten gems. The album includes a remastered version of Professor Laphroaigh originally included on his Dr Lindh – Sounds Interesting EP for SCSI-AV.
Pelvis Records returns with a breakbeat trip around the train yards of New York, coming to you care of Klasse Recordings’ Luca Lozano. Entitled King Blade, the record is an ode to the eponymous NYC writer, famed for his prolific painting of trains during the late 70s. Featuring an alternate mix from Lozano and remix by Eargoggle.
Music from Le Chocolat Noir, Tryphème, Russell Alderton, Luke Eargoggle, BLΔCKMOON77 and Kimmo Rapatti for your emotional sorrows, choose for now,the energy transmission , take and congregate. The breakable experience of an unconventional trip, but not so modern as that.
Stunning 6 track VA record with loads of funky and icey Electro from the scandinavian parts of the mind. From listening to the dancefloor feel free to discover the teamwork glued together from Sweden, Iceland, Finland, Germany & France…
Börft Records presents a collaboration between Luke Eargoggle & Villa Abo. That means Electro meets slammin techno & house as well as a little cutie in the end.
Randomly few times a year Rutherford and Eargoggle team up for some monkey business in the studio. As often the result is “Monkeyshop” a journey into the deepest, darkest forrests and landscapes of the north. Scandinavia is not known for the monkeys but they exist there especially arround Gothenburg in the mountains.. The music is a mix between electro and disco, might call it electrodisco and its all programmed and recorded in with the most easy and understandable equipment so its possible for monekys to use.
After some quiet years Stilleben Records is back. This VA 12″ goes on in exactly the same style as earlier records from Stilleben. A mix between electro and electro disco. Many records are planned and in the making right now for the future to be heard. This 12″ has a nice mix from E.R.P’s more 4/4 and harmonic melodies to more stiff electro-funk from up north.
After a hiatus of 11 years it appears Monkeyshop are using the Vivod portal for their current works, this being their 2nd EP for Ali Renault’s imprint. Title track Island of Love is a melodious sprawling opus perfect for keeping the summer vibes going all year round and takes the whole of side A. Side B has 2 more cuts. Heartbreak is another disco pulser and the final track is Island of Love given a brilliant rework treatment from fellow Swede electroist Obergman.
With a fleshy mix of acid and electro cuts from Sync 24, Privacy, Luke Eargoggle, Etcher and -=UHU=-, Berlin’s longstanding machine-driven music collective, Mechatronica, forcefully unites the classic and new sound on their first record release. A first-ever collaboration between established electro commanders Luke Eargoggle and Sync 24 opens the record in toxic floor buming fashion, followed by a cold and tightly programmed electro journey by -=UHU=-, blending the mechanic and the monotone in a comment on today’s relationship between machine and man.
Electro maestro Luke Eargoggle collaborates with some of his favorite producers creating an EP that delves into the many sides of Eargoggle. Eargoggle & The Hacker open the EP with a sleazy take on New Beat with Body. Eargoggle & Marco Bernardi are up next with trademark nagging basslines complete with fragmented weirdo speech and demented melodies for Rat Wire Chomp. On the flip Eargoggle joins forces with long term collaborator Rutherford for the driving emo Stalkers Behave. Closing the EP Das Muster goes in the for the kill with the metallic Starke.
Twin Paradox is a special series in Fundamental Records where two different artists with a strong connection release a double album, one from each artists/band. So what we have here Two different albums, from two different artists, with a connection in style or maybe conceptual… in this TPS003 Luke Eargoggle for example is part of the Faceless Mind project.
With this straight electro EP the longtime connection between Stilleben’s own Luke Eargoggle and Lunatic became manifest. The innovator and his friends Kan3da and Weltwirtschaft bring four various and origin tracks that are kept together through the typical Stilleben sound, packed in a carefully screenprinted, Lunatic jacket. The producers show again their talent for bringing musical devices in harmonics and arrangement together with innovative ideas in this classic genre. Each track has its own, different moment on the dancefloor – pushing forward with Icelandic Lady and the remix of Ocean Movers the record delays with the deep meandering Die Ganze Welt on the b-side. Finally the remix of Jennifer Touch’s Astra with it’s disco-attitude reminds of their wide spectrum like shown in Eargoggle’s Monkeyshop project or Kan3da’s former release on AC Records.
