Paralelo ‎– Iberorromance

Paralelo is the solo project of Raul Q. de Orte (also member of Wind Atlas). Since his early dark wave and synth pop recordings he has evolved with strong personality to his own style that could be redefined as cold electronic amidst anxious pop. His last tape “Synth Protesta” can be consider as a pure underrated gem of the spanish synth wave. Retro and contemporary at the same time, Raul sings against the modern reality demanding explanations to the world.

This new record “Iberorromance” continues the essence of “Corazón Roto Por Siempre y Orgulloso”, but here we have a wandering soul that returns defeated and hassled from a lost war. A beauty and crystalline piece of work.

FFO early Depeche Mode, Opéra De Nuit, Iron Curtain, Martial Canterel, She Past Away and Décima Víctima.

Dame Area ‎– La Soluzione é Una

The Barcelona’s duo explore their more industrial (as in early industrial, not industrial noise) and minimal synth facets. Tribal elements are kept to just a couple of tracks. Metallic percussion, throbbing synths and arpeggios living together under the same roof. This release has it all: rhythm, experimentation and melody.

FFO: Throbbing Gristle, Diseño Corbusier, Chris and Cosey, Liasons Dangerouses, Einstürzende Neubauten, Soft Moon, Cabaret Voltaire, Essaie Pas, DAF.

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.
