Child Of Night - What Remains

Columbus, Ohio darkwave duo Child of Night, made of Jonathan Thompson & Tristan Wolfe, released the 5-track EP “What Remains” on cassette tape, with their distinctive blend of electro, cold and gloomy sounds.

In “Sirens” pulsing crunching bass lines, unrelenting synthetic beats and icey wash of synths plunge into the depth of a weighty, bleak and dark soundscape. Fuelled by Tristan’s defiant and commanding baritone vocals, declaring his fearless attitude in reaction to the doom and dread of today’s reality. Will you succumb to fear or fly above it?

An intriguing brooding song of aching intensity and rare immediacy. [Whitelight / Whiteheat]

Autumns - Alexithymia

Ireland’s own Autumns lands on DKA for a 9-track mini album, Alexithymia. Having put out a string of solid releases with the likes of Downwards, Clan Destine, and AMOK Tapes we are extremely proud to share what we think is the young artist’s best work yet. Prickly sharp basslines ride on top of driving rhythms while dark string synths fill in the space with an air of sensuality, the use of distorted, muffled vocals adding a distant yet urgent mood.

As the title suggests, this very much sounds like someone reaching deep to feel in-touch with the emotions they’ve grown so detached from, a powerful musical momentum meant to shake up your mood and make you feel something. There is a distinctly post- punk feel to Alexithymia that sets it apart from most other techno releases. Expertly contrasting angular melodies along with inviting textures and dub techniques. Autumns is able to evoke the style of eighties pioneers like Public Image Limited, Pop Group, and Josef K albeit in the vein of contemporary techno. Autumns would appeal to fans of Silent Servant, Broken English Club, AN-I, Regis, and DKA’s own Celldöd.

Herz Jühning ‎- Samsara

The first vinyls from Herz Jühning are today much sought-after collectors’ items. The latest offering Paradise was sold out within hours, in spite of a considerable stock in hand. What we have been waiting for has become Reality. The long-awaited new Album! It consists of a concept album and deals with the cycle of Being and Passing On. A nightmarish work in which Herz Jühning is also reborn.

In his new life he has climbed to a higher level: Herz Jühning’s sound is now denser and perfected, but remains concentrated and fundamental. He possesses the rare ability to combine effectively voice and abstract elektroniks, nothing appears random. This results in not just Tracks, but Hits, also contained on Samsara. So enjoy a masterful mixture of Angst Pop, fragmented Power Electronics and “Old-School” Industrial of the darkest kind.
