Onont Kombar – Epitaph Of Ego [V-030]

A few years back label boss I-F was listening to a dj-set from one of his favorite dj’s Do Te Ra Ho! which contained a track which is a weird cross-over between ambient, electro and industrial and which was seemingly without ending. He asked him what track this was and it turned out to be an unreleased track named The Last Day Lasts Forever from the mysterious outfit Onont Kombar who previously only had a release on his own imprint Ordo Viatorum. After connecting to Onont Kombar he told him he wished the track would never end and that is why he decided to release it full-length on Viewlexx to make sure it will, indeed, last forever. The title track Epitaph Of Ego is a catchy psychedelic minimal synth track which has been used as jingle on Intergalactic FM for quite a while now so you may recognize it from there. Then there is Moondust In My Eye, a wonderful dreamy dance floor track, warm and cold at the same time, almost like watching a full moon all night while being warmed by a campfire.

I-F – Space Invaders’ Revenge [V006]

Space Invaders… They never quit smoking grass. And why living in a grey reality when the grass is greener on the other side This release features an extra long and remastered harvest. As an extra added bonus you’ll get an instrumental version and the previously only on CD released Pong’s Run’ by I-F and Intergalactic Gary. Mothers keep your children away from these deadbeats; they’re up to no good smoking and gaming their lives away.

Olds friends I-F and Intergalactic Gary revisit old material from their longtime alias The Conservatives. Appearing first time on vinyl. The film tells the story of six mental cases, trying to get rid of society’s norms and values by kidnapping, a well-known TV host. Delivering the soundtrack, The Conservatives (I-F & Intergalatic Gary) are setting down the perfect mood for this cult classic.

The Wheel of Rituals – The Wheel of Rituals [V028]

I-F’s Viewlexx label is keeping tight-lipped about this rather fine EP. They’ve offered no details of the artist behind the project – or anything else for that matter – and their promotional spiel consists of one line in Latin. What we can tell you is that it’s a suitably dystopian affair, with the mystery producer launching with a chunk of industrial-tinged experimental electronica (the decidedly fuzzy “Initiation”), before joining the dots between Cabaret Voltaire and Drexciya on the decaying dancefloor electro pomp of “Flight From Reason”. Some will detect a nod towards Test Department on “Refuse Resist” and “Instrument of Power”. Elsewhere, there’s a looser and more alien feel to “Circle of Trust”, while closer “The Wheel of Rituals” is deliciously dark and hypnotic.

DJ Overdose – Master Control [V026]

After being returned from his abduction by aliens from the hidden planet Nibiru, DJ Overdose was given an alien synthesizer ‘the HAEX-HRLL’ as a thank you for all the cerebral research the aliens did on him. On returning back to Earth all DJ Overdose had to do was finish the 6 tracks the aliens had started to work on, which became this EP. Straight forward Techno Hop Electro Funk without any fancy-pants pretentious hooha. It’s like a black and white movie which makes you think ‘why the hell is there colors anyway?!’ After completion, the only record label he could imagine being fit for such rawness would be Viewlexx… and so here it is.

Gesloten Cirkel – Submit X [M-X]

Returning to Viewlexx sub-label Murder Capital, Gesloten Cirkel is ready to serve up a full-length album, Submit X. Russian mystery man Gesloten Cirkel has caused quite a stir with his releases on this label as well as Moustache Techno Series and Berceuse Heroique – it is often weird, twisted music that fuses acid and techno and electro into brave new forms. This new album continues in that tradition across ten new cuts. Right from the off Gesloten Circkel spits out the jams – opener ‘Zombiemachine Acid’ is built on a corrugated bed of beats, has slapping percussion and a sharp acid line. After the same track without the acid line comes ‘Submit X’ with its into fractured, loopy sounds and layered up vocal snippets. For unsettling, dark and droning ambient check ‘Stakapella’, or the same sketch with a distant electro beat on ‘Stakan’. ‘Chatters’ is then a grimy post punk electronic track with whirring melodies, malfunctioning synths and plenty of dirt in its make-up and the latter part of the album touches on more paranoid electro, nagging and unsettling techno and whip-snapping acid tracks. Truly unique, esoteric and idiosyncratic, this album is as unpredictable as you would expect from someone like the enigmatic Gesloten Cirkel.

Drvg Cvltvre – Everything Oblivion EP [V024]

The Hague Electronix veteran Vincent Koreman, Bunker veteran and Angelmaker label owner, presents his new project Drvg Cvltvre with the first release on Viewlexx. Koreman describes the project as an outlet for slow, doomy disco and experimental house, yet the superbly titled opening track “Bring Me Your Labradoodle” long with “Hermes Russia” and “Heart Beat” has more in common with the deranged techno of Gesloten Cirkel. Amidst all this, the vaguely unsettling “Monkey Man” sounds like Chicago Shags remixing Analord.
