R A D K O – Cherno PPP / Brutalista

Here is the debut release by Italian duo R A D K O… their music is a blending of post/cold wave and shoegaze elements… both the songs and the production have a typical nostalgic feeling but are rather modern at the same time… instead of being overtly dark the sound and overall mood is much more melancholy and dreamy… for sure these two tracks make up for an impressive debut and addictive little 7″ record…

LCN - Autonomie

LCN was present on the “Noblesse Oblige” compilation (Gooiland 23) with a sweaty EBM influenced track… on this 4 track EP you can expect dark and cold elektro sounds… it is reminiscent of Invasion Planete and Kommando 6 output but with a cleaner and more modern sound… still if you like(d) these early 2000’s elektro sounds you will love this too… this EP follows up on the steady stream of releases LCN has been putting out lately… among them on labels as Frigio Records and Return To Disorder… but this is probably his most dark and freaked out release up till now…

Staatseinde - Neue Zyklus

Dutch synth duo Staatseinde finally releases their debut EP on vinyl… after two 7”s on Enfant Terrible they present this 6 track EP… stripped down through the years from a band to a duo the sound also changed… the songs on this EP are more up-tempo, louder, more beat orientated… and also darker as before mostly… and… for sure more dance floor minded… expect some classic minimal synth tunes in line with El Aviador Dro and Welle: Erdball for example but also more punchy tracks with EBM influences… Staatseinde 2.0 has arrived!

Ian Martin - Rites Of Passage

Dark rites…

Ian Martin should be no stranger to people who are into elektro and trippy electronics… with releases on Bunker, Panzerkreuz and Strange Life his reputation is quite settled… for Gooiland Elektro he came up with four tracks filled with dark beats… from pounding to spacey… elektro and EBM influenced with industrial tendencies…

Unruhe

The Gooiland Elektro compilation “Unruhe” is a showcase of contemporary acid techno… spacey and trippy in the hands of Zarkoff and distorted and freaked out by Roberto Auser… but also rather industrial when done by FOQL or pushed to the extreme by The Untitled… this is acid as it should sound… edgy and daring tracks for illuminated heads instead of easy and boring sounds suitable for the masses… and as with all Gooiland Elektro releases this one is equally intense on the dance floor as with headphone playback…
