Grimdeluxe - Donker

From the Netherlands comes the irresistible sound of Grimdeluxe. His undeniably danceable beat and shimmering synth, form the perfect foundations for his sonorous vocal. Grimdeluxe’s lyrics tell us stories. His dream-like narratives, sometimes dark, often mysterious, are always delivered with a powerful sense of emotional connection to the listener.

Shibuya Station - Always Waiting at Shibuya Station

SHIBUYA STATION is an all analogue synth project founded by Marc Schaffer (aka solitude fx, Endphase, Twins Natalia, as well as being the founder of the Anna Logue Records and Nadanna labels).

Finding his inspiration in the late 70s to early 80s synth music and the machines of the age themselves, Marc recorded a few tracks back in 2013 which were further developed by fellow musicians Stefan Bornhorst (The Silicon Scientist), Dave Hewson (Poeme Electronique), Orpheo Weidelt (solitude fx), Kriistal Ann (Paradox Obscur) and Erik Söderberg (Kinder Aus Asbest) over the following years. Six tracks made it eventually onto international compilations Tunes That R… Attractive!, Sie Hat Schenkel Wie Godzilla, Jubilee Jamboree – 10 Years Of TuT/RuR and Synthesizer Music On Tape vol.3, which are now presented on a 10” vinyl on the renowned Polytechnic Youth label, who say it’s their last release for awhile, as they concentrate on their new label, Feral Child.

Instruments used were Amdek Percussion Synthesizer PCK-100, Boss Voice Transformer VT-1, Casio VL-1, Crumar Performer, DSI Mopho, Korg KR-55B, Korg MS-20, Moog Little Phatty, Moog Voyager, Novation Bass Station II, Oberheim DPX-1, Roland CR-78, Roland SH-2, Yamaha CS01, and VST synthesisers ARP Odyssey, EKSSperimental Sounds ES101, Korg MS-20. The project name is reference to Hachikō, the dog who continued to wait for over nine years following his owner’s death at … Shibuya Station.

Arnaud Rebotini - I Drive East

After his sold out EP “Shiny Black Leather” and a dream collaboration with Dario Argento for the soundtrack of his new film “Occhiali Neri”, Maestro Arnaud Rebotini is back on Mannequin Records with a brand new 4-tracks ep “I Drive East”.

For this new ep, Arnaud started working more on a song form, deeply inspired by his rock’n'roll roots. Having heroes like Suicide or Alien Sex Fiend in mind, he was able to create the perfect link between EBM and Industrial Rock. The final production was orchestrated diving deep into percussive drums and digital synthesizers, a mega hybrid of analog and digital, recalling back our favourite mid-80′s productions.
