With this project he blends in a very successful way minimalism and lo-fi electronics with tough rhythms… these rhythm based tracks take its cue from old school EBM and new beat… this while the melodic elements give the tracks just the right touches to draw you deeper into them… harsh and playful and light and dark never went so well together before… resulting in pure rave anthems!

Solitude FX

Back in 2007 we released a 10″ mini LP with Solitude FX under the alias of Solitairen Effekten… featuring only German sung minimal elektro tracks with a slight hint of NDW… “sfx” is another collection of songs by the German duo… this time much more new wave orientated… and even more melancholy as before… but it is not only sadness and solitude these songs have to offer… there is also romance and devotion streaming through them…

The minimal and lo-fi character of the production only serves the songs in being authenthic and straight from the heart… less is more proves again to be quite true…

For the artwork Dutch visual artist Hans de Wolf photographed some of his wood sculptures… which fit amazingly well to the mood and feeling of the music…

This compilation is created as a companion to the event A Gathering Of Post-everything… an event in two parts in the city of Berlin on the 28th of June 2014. The artists on this compilation are all part of the afternoon performance session. The posters for this event can be found here

Some familiar names of the ET family are featured on this compilation but also some new ones… the music has links to a wide range of traditions like minimal music, techno, noise and electro-acoustic music… but all is done with an open mind… with the aim to create something that goes beyond the definitions and clichés of these styles…

Most copies of the tapes were given away for free to the audience at the event…

Repeating Mistakes LP

While the ‘Mellowharsher’ mini LP (2012, Enfant Terrible) was subtle on every level this new full length album by Europ Europ might be called subtle noise… ‘Repeating Mistakes’ shows a slightly different side of the Norwegian band… they are back to being a duo and back to basics in a way…

The album is noisy but without being a simple drone… the band serves you lo-fi industrial soundscapes presented as songs… sometimes haunting and disturbing but the next minute soothing and hypnotic… ‘Repeating Mistakes’ is not an easy listening album but a piece of music you need to discover by listening to it over and over again… peeling away layers and uncovering the true nature of the songs by doing this… this is simply minimal electronics as it should sound!

Limited to 200 copies.

Listen here and order here.
