Cicli Siderali Verso L'annientamento

Vincent E.F. aka Bossa Luce is a musician from Turin who is already author of two self-produced tapes (Douce Torture; Aut-Aut) and of a split tape with Kolmas Oli Thoralf (Relazioni Asintotiche). His sound, which seems to arise from the early 80′s electro-industrial scene, has generated interest and curiosity towards his solo project, that, although young, can be placed beside some of the old names of the Italian underground scene.

Cicli Siderali Verso l’Annientamento, with the massive use of analogic synths, samplings, distorted voices and obsessive rhythms, strongly evokes obscure and hypnotic atmospheres, and reminds as well of the classics of the experimental music, such as Throbbing Gristle, The Residents, Factrix and Suicide.

The album is the first vinyl release of both Bossa Luce and Direct Cut. The songs Mrs. Mestizia, A.D.C.G and Caligola, already included in the tape Aut-Aut , are proposed again in a new version.

Real Life

The music contains influences from Italo disco, synthpop and new wave.

Dream For The Fall

Schonwald is a duo from Italy. Schonwald is all about atmospheres: hypnotic minimalist mood and a noise inclination with echoes of Suicide, New Order, The Cure, mingling with synth melodies straight from the ’80. Their first album “Amplified nature” was realized in February 2009 on a special Vinyl edition including CD on Pocket Heaven Records (Lux).

Schonwald live debut was in London at “Myogenic Festival” and Amplified Nature has been supported by 4 European tours through Italy, England, France, Switzerland , Luxembourg, Germany.

Don’t let the Germanic name fool you, the first Italian band signed to HoZac and one we’ve been excited to unleash for months, Schonwald emerge here on their US debut single slithering with unsettling vibes right from the start. This two-piece unit has been surreptitiously dwelling in the shadowy corners of the European underworld for a few years now, releasing their debut LP in 2009 on a special Vinyl edition including CD on Pocket Heaven Records (Lux) and performing at festivals with the likes of UK Decay, and other similar bands, Schonwald are now encroaching on world submission with the unleashing of their long-anticipated “Mercurial” single. A chilling and hopelessly bleak drum-machine rhythm sets the tone, parting the waves of rippling darkness into a massive surge of inescapable, hushed-yet-crushing electronic melancholia. European post punk at it’s finest, Alessandra and Luca of Schonwald create a pulsing, black-lit atmospheric electronic vibration so cold, hypnotic, and simple, it’s perfect for our endlessly frozen world.
