Initially this Mushy/Meddicine split saw its release last year on tape through Meddicine‘s own label SixSixSixties Records. Both sides have a similar hypnotizing quality that is bound to intrigue anyone, yet are very different at the same time.

Hailing from Italy, Mushy is like a siren; you know deep down that giving in to her seductive chanting will take you to a dark place, but you submit yourself nonetheless.

Meddicine is a different kind of enchantress. Her music is overwhelming in a harsher, more straightforward way, seducing by pulsating sound and noise rather than vocals. In other words, this vinyl reissue offers a great combination of psychedelic synths and noise that will leave no one unimpressed.

Popsimonova is the new upcoming queen of cold electro (wave) … her tracks are cold but with lots of energy… intelligent constructed tracks to make you move but also to make you take a step back and let the music work on you in different ways… this is what they call electro beyond the former Iron Curtain… and this is what we move to on any good electro party…

47 beautiful portraits of Modern Movement’s finest creatives – musicians and artists – captured by London’s magnificent Tom Kavanagh in Berlin. The Modern Movement book is also accompanied by an 18-track CD compilation of artists in the publication – curated and produced by Jen Ellerson and aufnahme+wiedergabe.

The story of Modern Witch began 6 years ago in Denver, Colorado, when graphic artist Mario Zoots, singer Kristy Fenton and house veteran Kamran Khan started recording experimental music together on an old VHS camera. In the space of a few years, a couple of very limited tape and CD/R releases on labels such as Disaro and Clan Destine Records, and a series of spooky performances both in Europe and on the American continent, the trio has become a true underground reference for creepy, ritualistic dance music, in the muddy but oh so fascinating waters between Witchhouse and Minimal Synth.

Treue um Treue is very proud to present a selection of their best tracks for the first time on vinyl, on two twin-LPs of which this is the first. Drunk on 80′s cold wave, bathed in suburbian occult decadence and haunted by dead celebrities, “Hollywood” is a feast of thaumaturgic synth lines, nonchalant but captivating mpc 1000 – sequences, drugged-out spoken words and ghostly voices. American Angst or Minimal Doom electronics at their best!

ADN’ CKRYSTALL aka Erick Moncollin surely does not need much of an introduction. Every self-respecting minimal wave fan and synth nerd will have heard of the French synth-wizard who jammed with Tim Blake and Vangelis on a MS-20 prototype in the late 70s and whose 1982 cult album “Jazz’Mad” is considered a landmark in the history of underground electronic music. After a pause in the 90s (during which Moncollin became active in the trance and ambient-techno scene under the name Dr. STRANGE), several brilliant albums were released in the 2000s on Anna Logue Records, La Forme Lente and Erick’s own ADN and Ysil’Prod labels. Treue um Treue is honoured to present the project’s sixth full-length.

“Musique Atomique Sans Surveillance” is a highly skilful, playful yet authentic blend of 70s prog synth, early 80s minimal electro and 90s techno, flowing with ease from library lounge music to spacey weird-wave to electronic exotica, reminiscent at times of BERNARD SZAJNER and CLAUDE LARSON. The spiciest note of this delicious psychotropic cocktail is of course Erick’s unmistakable, demented yet committed Deutsch-Frenglish lyrics, which make of ADN’ CKRYSTALL such a unique experience.
