Der Himmel Über Berlin - Amnesia

Der Himmel Über Berlin are a band coming from extreme north-east of Italy whose name explicitly reveals their attraction to middle-european sonority and atmosphere even though their lyrics are in english. Their sound takes us to postpunk based on the likes of early Bauhaus, Christian Death, Joy Division and Sisters Of Mercy, but with a contemporary twist, which makes them easily placed on the musical map and keeps them original nevertheless.

In 2012 Der Himmel release their first studio album “Memories Never Fade”. After a radical change in their line up they record a live album in Milano’s historical Shelter Club in November of 2013, a natural consequence of extensive touring in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Czech Republic.

Ono Scream

Ono Scream, the solo project of Apparaat – frontman Bart Willems (Anvers/Belgium), has one foot proudly in the past but with the other one he takes a step forward. He eagerly uses the sounds of the gloomy eighties. You’ll hear references to his childhood heroes (Fad Gadget, early Simple Minds, Bauhaus …) which are glued to modern influences like The Soft Moon, the KVB and Tropic Of Cancer. But with a sharp, Ono Scream – like twist to them.

Ono Scream is Willems’ very personal way of dealing with the past, while looking to the future. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. He’s tried his hand at a myriad of musical styles, to wind up back at his true passion: synth-driven rock music, both old and new. With mesmerizing keys, pounding bass-loops, wintry voice and a sporadic feminine touch, he immerses the listener in a melancholy but also riveting world.

All songs resound with both the grandeur in a minor key and the anxious hope for the future of, say, The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Siglo XX and Killing Joke. Elsewhere we hear the fuzz of The Jesus & Mary Chain or the drones of Gary Numan. The familiarity of these retro sounds grabs you by the scruff of the neck and shows you exciting new places. This is true COLD WAVE somewhere in the darkest hole of human emotion between The Cure, Joy Division an early New Order.

Blind Delon - Riot

Founded in 2016 by Mathis Kolkoz, Blind Delon made it’s first release on the spanish record label Oràculo Records with the ” Edouard ” Ep, containing 3 original tracks plus a remix from Drvg Cvltvre ( Viewlexx, New York Haunted ). Shortly after this release, Léo Farronato ( Memento Maurice ) started to take part in this project, and today Blind Delon is working as a duet, with big influences from 80′s Post-Punk/Cold Wave to the french Techno scene and the german Neue Deutsche Welle.

Synth-Pop might be the best word to qualify their music, as their music is a sort of breed between outrageous Pop and cold basslines. Building a bridge between Pop and Rave music, Blind Delon is making a conventionnal yet romantic Post-Punk sound and join now Unknown Pleasures Records roster.

With their heads and bags filled with synthesizers from a time they weren’t even born, Mathis and Léo can be found today between a record shop and a cave rave, looking for an aesthetic that is nowhere near dying.
