Soundtrack of Raging Rose

Dear wavers, a new friend label is born: DRAMES, will be dedicated to original soundtracks.

Here comes its first release, a vinyl LP for the movie CRACHE COEUR (eng: RAGING ROSE / pol: ZNAM KOGOŚ KTO CIĘ SZUKA) by Julia Kowalski.

The original music, made by her brother Daniel Kowalski (aka Dasz, aka Ame de Boue), is mainly electronic, sometimes with filtered guitars and/or voice.

The first side of the record offers a series of instrumental tracks with a lot of nostalgia, without hesitation to a few retro accents, inspired both by the genre cinema music of the late 70s and by the exacerbated romantism of the cold wave years.The second side is more eclectic and more rythmical, six dancefloor oriented tracks, with various influences like synth pop, dark electro or even black metal. The record however remains very coherent as a whole, this due precisely to what we cannot see here: the movie.

Last by not least, we have two additionnal tracks, one by Dolina, deeply cold, distant and aerial, and one by Villa Piégée, a kind of emo-future-pop hymn taken from the compilation “Palais Châlet” (2012 – Pneu records).

An intense and singular piece of synth music…

Pyramid Club - Cyclic Obsession

Joining the Unknown Precept forces are C.G.I. Records’ label head Matthew Weiner teaming up with Christopher Daresta as Pyramid Club. Being known for their T.W.I.N.S. and Anticipation solo activities, ‘Cyclic Obsession’ comes as the debut release of the four-handed formation taking its name from the eponymous venue which helped define the counter-culture and queer sound of lower Manhattan in the late 70’s.

Recorded in their stronghold of Atlanta following a handful of tracks released via the jointly-operated D.K.A. Records, it shows the duo taking over primitive body music in its most physical and psychedelic dimension. Thick as a brick bass lines for the basement turmoil — reflecting the hazy vortex smoldering out of an ill-lighted nightclub. Think of spasmodic synth-driven tunes interspersed by convulsive vocals and throbbing snares, in which one could see the whites of the dancers’ eyes right before the lights turn back on.
