Dona feat. Aloth - Mindscapes

Dona Aka Dj Plant Texture’s debut on Mannequin is the result of an effective true love for the early Chicago Acid and Jackbeat, mixed with textures of EBM and Cold Wave.

“Mindscapes”, featuring the haunted vocals of Aloth, represents a trip into states of consciousness and psychiatric diseases. Ispired by some reports describing America’s Mental health System during the latest 70’s, the EP is a blend of analog machines, forced to create the perfect jam session.

Police Des Moeurs ‎– Péril

Mannequin Records is delighted to present the fourth full length of Polices des moeurs, the Canadian minimal synth duo formed by Francis Dugas and Manuelle Gauthier.

With PÉRIL, Police des moeurs expands its sound and ventures into mysterious, bewitchingand enigmatic landscapes. The foundation is still synthetic, minimal and punchy, relying on mechanical rhythm, powerful bass and catchy melodies, but it’s now combined with more elaborate arrangements, punctuated by delicate textures and depthful laments with uncertain but sincere meanings.

Formed in 2010 in Montreal, Police des moeurs got noticed right from the start with its infectious and direct synth pop. The band has released several recordings, including Péril, their fourth full lenght album on Berlin’s Mannequin Records. The Canadian group has performed in Mexico, the United States, as well as in ten European countries, and has share the stage with The Damned, ADULT., TR / ST, Xeno & Oaklander, Automelodi, Essaie Pas, Xarah Dion, Duchess Says, to name a few.

June ‎– Silver Demon

Mannequin Records is thrilled to introduce that the Greek artist June is joining the label with his full-lenght ‘Silver Demon’.

June aka Tsampikos Fronas – also part of the duo Manie Sans Délire has been driving his analog machines since 2010 into many underground places, exploring a variety of outstanding compositions, from acid jakbeat to early Chris Carter experiments, permeating his music with minimal synth and industrial modular powerful sounds. Founding his own imprint June in 2010, Tsampikos delivered two killer full lengths, one for Argy’s label These Days in 2011 and one for Solvent’s Suction Records in 2015, plus a moltitude of EPs, including one for the legendary Jamal Moss’s Mathematics, and one ‘Cytheria’ again for These Days, with 2 liquid-house remixes by DJ Sprinkles.

His third album for Mannequin Records explores a futuristic dystopian world where transcendence and oppression coexist, where claustrophobia and infinite openness coincide. A world of contrasts that is the product of the artist‘s active imagination and conscious effort to confront the subconscious.

The album was recorded using original techniques from the golden era of electronic music (late 70s to mid 80s) with an arsenal of vintage analog synthesizers, drum machines and effect processors (originating) from the same time period. While the aesthetics of the classic precursors emerge through the minimal, deep, dark architecture of June’s music, Silver Demon prevails with the artist’s characteristic originality.
