Blush Response - Body Architect

Blush Response is an American Electronic Music project based in New York. It is the solo project of musician Joey Blush.

He began Blush Response in 2009, and has released two albums to date, 2010′s We Are Replicants (self released), and 2013′s Tension Strategies (Basic Unit Productions / Tundra).

His music is characterized by a modular synth heavy approach to sound design, combining rough, glitch-heavy beats with thick, distorted synths to create a sound that blurs the lines between electronic genres.

Blush has also done programming work for artists such as Fear Factory, Rhys Fulber, Cristian Castro, and has toured as a member of Joey Jordison (Slipknot)’s industrial metal project Scar the Martyr.

Dead - Voices

What more can you say about a band called DEAD that hasn’t already been made abundantly clear at first glance? The fact that these French mercenaries of noise can conjure up such a powerfully dark aesthetic before even hitting a note is impressive, but when they finally do, they unleash a far more potent beast entirely. If DEAD aren’t already mapping out the future destruction of the planet, they’ve sure as hell written the soundtrack.

Bleak, confrontational, but with a firm command of rhythm and deep grooves, this might be the dancefloor antidote we’ve been waiting for.

Digipak and vinyl edition.

European Ghost - Pale & Sick

Tracers light in the night, phosphorous bombs, mutilated statues and cities ‘ gutted while a silent and faceless army crosses the muddy trenches of Europe. From the sky falls a torn exterminating angel to avenge, recounting music in the new modern horror of loneliness and mute urban battles . Among kraut music, drones, electro dark wave and post-punk, a new band of Bologna, the project out of control and multiform, the European Ghost. If you like Joy Division, Bauhaus, Minimal Compact, Birthday Party, PIL, Cabaret Voltaire, Alan Vega, Psychic TV, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Sonic Youth or The Soft Moon this music is for you!

The 6th of May 2016 the French label “Unknown Pleasures Records” released the first LP “Pale and Sick” by European Ghost. “Pale and Sick” is a concept album: a flight over the European remains from the two world wars. Ten painted dark songs, integrate into New Wave tradition and pushing theirselves limits to a martial and claustrophobic experimentalism. Prevailing bass guitar and all other dense echoes guitars, weave together with strict declaims into a contemporary approach of electronic vibes. Their debut album mastered in London by James Aparicio (Grinderman, Liars, New Puritans, Spiritualized, Depeche Mode…), was claimed with great thrill by the european and south american press and radio broadcasts.

Edition of 300 copies on CD.

Le Chant Du Cygne Noir

Some months after the split of Adan & Ilse, now we are happy and proud to present ‘le Chant Du Cygne Noir’ A★I, on Unknown Pleasures Records!

A★I is the newest alias for franco spanish artist Pedro Peñas Robles with discreet and not very well-known electronica producer Phllox.

As DJ Pedro started out as a teenager by Djing and organising dark underground parties on different clubs of south of France. As musician he produced many albums (industrial act HIV+) and a number of tracks, remixes and side projects (Adan & Ilse, Ushersan & HIV+, Sensory Mindfields, H.U.H…).

Mixing elements as disparate as modern synth pop, electronica, hypnotising synths, driving beats, dirty distortions, vocals and cinematic soundscapes, this debut album is innovative, dark but pop. What maybe can be described as ‘alternative modern synth pop music’ unfolds in different nuances with overdriving climax.
