Mures - Rare Metal

Mures are Joshua Cordova and Santiago Leyba. They fit perfectly as MRT010, transporting the label from the cold, grey, drowned in concrete atmospheres of Acid Ernst to the working class heat of the American south. Body music, factory music, machines intensify their rhythm as degrees rise. Hot iron is forged, sweat and black stains cover faces, hard labor, the struggle and the hammers are tools for modern times restraint. Rare Metal and Workers have just paved the way to that bullet that is Trains of Thought.

Acid Ernst - Ehre

Acid Ernst is the alias of Konstantin Unwohl. He’s reviving the MRT series with four tracks of different qualities.

The A side is pushing in every direction, relentless rhythms, depressed melodies coming in waves and sombre lyrics. As to bring sadness and frustration in an otherwise angry techno room. The B side is rather sombre, with a masterpiece that goes by the name Ehering and a dark number called Deine Stiche taten Weh.

The perfect starting point to close the MRT chapter, the first of 4 releases that will conclude this adventure.

Claus Fovea - Open Eyes Shut

In 2012 Claus Fovea self released a cassette containing 10 tracks, he was at his Swedish beginnings. 9 years later we re-discovered his tape, thanks to Sam. It still sounded so true and relevant to us that we decided to release it on vinyl. Claus then reworked some tracks, scrap some, and made few new. Florin Büchel mixed them down and Andrea Merlini mastered them. The result is a picture frozen in time, in between now and then, the struggle, and sadness, that fragile construction of hope shattered as time goes by, like nothing ever change. It is indeed, as he sings, just the same song playing all the time. Over and over.

Bound by Endogamy - Walk with a tumored dog

Walk with a tumored dog by Bound by Endogamy is the third and final instalment of the 7” series by Swiss musicians on Lux Rec. To understand this record one needs to spend a morning, after a sleepless night, waking to the junction point in Geneva, where waters meet, leftovers wear their high off and high bridges invite you to make the last jump. One needs to deal with a frustrated environment that only brings out so much anger. One needs to know Kleio and Sam, and their symbiotic take on life.

Karl Kave - Leg di bitte a

Karl Kave makes his appearance on Lux Rec for their first release in 7” format. Four terse tracks influenced by his past experiences, high and low as they come, life events and tumultuous thoughts. The result is something of a sombre nostalgia for all that is not there anymore. Coming from Rheintal, a valley on the eastern part of Switzerland, he uses English, German and his native Swiss dialect to sing. Dive into it, meet sadness.
