Rude 66

Rude 66 does not need an introduction… this Dutch acid and elektro veteran has been around for a long time… being part of the old school acid scene from The Hague with releases on legendary label Acid Planet and he is one of the originals (again) when it comes to the new wave of electro in the late 1990′s…

Especially for Gooiland Elektro he has created this dark elektro EP… two vocals tracks on the A-side with Beta Evers and Sololust appearing as partners in crime… and on the B-side two instrumental almost trance like tracks…

This is were elektro, acid (beat) and a touch of old school gothic come together!

Further Reductions Woodwork

Cititrax is proud to present a full length LP by Brooklyn duo Further Reductions. Shawn O’Sullivan and Katie Rose formed Further Reductions in 2008 as an outlet for their shared passion of electronic dance music. O’Sullivan, known for his recent techno releases as Vapauteen on L.I.E.S., 400PPM on Avian and Civil Duty (with Beau Wanzer of Streetwalker) on The Corner has been quite active lately blurring the lines between techno and noise music. With Further Reductions, O’Sullivan’s rhythmic sensibility is fused with Rose’s pop leanings to create super lush and atmospheric tracks that work both on and off the dance floor. Informed by the sounds of classic techno and early house, they subtly substitute the structure of functional club music with a more primal absorption based in their unique collaboration. Seductive vocals coupled with organically evolving sequences create a complex narrative that penetrates the subconscious in a way that conventional club music rarely threatens to.

Woodwork is an edition of 999 copies pressed on 160 gram clear vinyl with purple and silver splatter, presented in a high gloss printed LP jacket. Release date: April 30th, 2014. Track A1, High End Basics was featured on Veronica Vasicka’s LN-CC mix as well as her visit to Benji B’s BBC Radio 1 show.

Perte d'identité

Perte d’identité, which translates to “loss of identity,” is the debut LP by composer, singer and poet Marie Davidson, one of the finest artists rising from the electronic dark-synth scene in Montreal. Her voice is a stark half-spoken monotone which will tell you stories from which you can’t escape unchanged. With this release, she refines her storytelling with suffocating tales that are both intimate and melancholic. Meanwhile, her miraculously human electronic rhythms are as frantic and hypnotic as an intense stare.

In her premier full length album, she invites you to take a look in the peephole, revealing a fascinating cinematic picture. What you will be shown are the parts of yourself which you’re scared and ashamed of, but also the ones that reveal a haunting and glamorous sensuality. Not only will she spin you a tale, but her music will immerse your soul in images of sweet anxiety. “This album is about romance and a quest for meaning.”

Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies. 140gr black vinyl, 300gr deluxe cardboard sleeve with embossing and inside printing.
