The duo combines guitar, analog synths and drum machine to develop songs between French synth punk, techno and electro krautrock. “As if Alan Vega kissed Etienne Daho on a french touch party, it’s a try to combine your mother’s caress and your father’s slap at the same time.”

“Minimum Viable Product” (MVP) is an incremental Compilation to be built by Detonic Recordings over the next year. Each Month an on-line single will be published with an “A” and “B” side from each participating artist.

Dame Area - Centro Di Gravitá

When 20 year old Silvia Konstance came back from a year living in Turkey and integrated on Barcelona’s label and collective Magia Roja she didn’t expect that her bedroom project Dame Area would be joined by the collective honcho Viktor L.Crux (aka Futuro de Hierro, ex-Qa’a, ex-Ordre Etern, collaborator of Nurse With Wound, Jochen Arbeit and various Gnodheads ) and together would be releasing a genre defying LP not much later. Dame Area’s music has already find it’s way in sets from Vladimir Ivkovic (Salon Des Amateurs resident DJ), WFMU, and radios on UK, Russia, Italy, Spain, Canada and Belgium before even being released on vinyl with virtually no promotion.

Influenced by Franco Battiato (hence the LP title), Silvia’s turkish experience, their background on Barcelona’s vibrant post-industrial scene and imagining how would be if “Il Secondo Canto de las Lavandeiras” was a band instead of just a one-off song, they have found themselves creating a music in their own parameters. Dubbed tribal wave by Adam Reid from Bristol’s Schwet collective, it could be loosely defined as a mixture between industrial tribalism with synthetic minimalism.
