Doric is the solo, side-project of Stathis Leontiadis, mostly known as the one half of the Human Puppets, as well as the Exetix and Plexiglas.

Being involved in various avant garde/new wave music projects since 1996, intrigued by the all analogue mentality of the late 70′s-early 80′s music field, he passionately committed to vintage synths and machines, creating a very distinctive and specific style and considered by many as “specialist”. His live performances are all analogue by choice and are interestingly captivating as the sound is being built on stage,just like the old days. We proudly introduced him as a unit to the world, with a brilliant and unique self title 7” (Feb/2013) that was an instant sold out. Therefore the next step of a full LP seemed inevitable and needed.

”Over Mentality” is a record, full of Minimal Electro perfectionism and New Wave complex landscapes, performed with the agility and passion of a natural born Purist. Doric’s mentality, carries raw, passionate, old school values filtered with the innovation of a musician that is cursed to live Today. His subjects vary from unexpected loves, cursed lives, wasted, devoured dreams however, all of them cling under one thematic area: How memories fulfill us and keep us sane. The artwork of the record implies the handmade, old school ethos as well.

The LP will be released in 500, hand numbered, limited, black vinyl copies.

Froe Char - Fossils

Something happened…
One erotic mouvement of lips in front of a devasted landscape. The mark of a sigh on a broken mirror. Emotions trapped in some vapor. The fossils are returned in a serein chaos.

Froe Char aka Italian / Parisian Christina is also known as 1/2 of the synth duo Illustration Sonore who has an amazing LP being released by the fantastic Medical Records label. There have been a pair of previous Froe Char releases of dark beautiful ambiance but with “Fossils” she takes the distorted haze and murk of her prior work and uses it as a texture amid percolating synths and minimalist rhythms. “Fossils” is the sultry minimal synth record for the experimental crowd or the noisy bleak record for the coldwave kids. I once heard someone say “you can’t dance to pain” but this record really proves otherwise.

This record is the first in a collaborative effort between Spielzeug Muzak and the excellent DIY label Modern Tapes from the US.
