Monocorpse - Ceremonie Caille

Hailing from Holland Monocorpse serves dark electronix/techno… extremely minimal, raw and primitive in sound and the tracks are ritual and occult in orientation and mood… think of the previous Gooiland Elektro releases by Drvg Cvltvre and Ekman but stripped down to the essence and pitch black… also comparisons with Ancient Methods have already been made… but these tracks have a nasty and dirty sound of their own… this 12″EP is something for the real freaks out there…

Neo Romantix Years

The death of Steve Strange gave us the urge to work on covers of Neo-Romantics/New Wave bands of the early 1980s. We have selected great covers of this period of great creativity with analogue synth wave / minimal wave gems. No remixes and no cheap dance music.

Comes in a lovely digipak 3 panels deluxe with artwork by Yannick Rault based on original picture by Graham Smith glossy imprint with selective varnish laquer.

The Agnes Circle are a London-based post-punk duo formed in March 2015 by guitarist/vocalist Florian Voytek and bassist Rachael Redfern.

The pair began working together and crafting their sound which draws on elements of French coldwave and English post-punk. The two combine ethereal guitars and brutalist bass lines led by militant drum machines and crooning vocals.

The Agnes Circle have released a debut EP titled ‘Modern Idea’ on cassette with Philadelphia based label End Result Productions and on vinyl with French label Manic Depression Records.
