Incite is the Hamburg-based experimental audiovisual electronics duo of Kera Nagel (solo: axiomatic integration) and André Aspelmeier (solo: GradCom). incite/ plays bone-dry electronics, fragmented idm grooves in broken rhythmic arrangements synced with abstract grayscale videos. Fragmented electric junk and fragile bursts of static noise meet with extra-charged sub-bass-kicks in impressive conjunction with the intensity of the meticulously constructed visuals and physical presence of the duo within their projected image.

" zero life night vision " - Alt-Delete - 2008
Electro / New Wave / Punk / Trash / Metal

Following the famous "neutral ep" Kap Bambino comes back with 12 new songs on a cd called, "zero life,night vision". result from distortion beat and bass ,and the shouts by khima France. It is also very speedy.
one can find love songs,hatred songs and hatred of hatred songs. We can always find devastating,direct and completely impulsive spirit of Kap Bambino !! maucassins and spangles for this discopunk traumatized.
Born in October 2001, as well as their own label WWILKO, KAP BAMBINO (the French Orion Bouvier and Caroline Martial) plays an effective and energetic contemporary electronic music. Based on incisive rythms, intoxicating riffs and dyslexic lyrics, this music defies classification. Out of control, it is sometimes pop and melancholic, sometimes skinned-raw, but always agressive. They try to exist in the fringe of the actual French musical movement, like some no-futur bastards, totally devoted to non-stop amazing performance. They can perform all their live shows as if they play with their own lives.

" V Vitalic Live " - Different - 2007
Electro / Techno
Recorded in October 2006 in Brussels, it's a damn-near perfect showcase that the guy has an incredible skill to raise layer over layer of sound and play with the crowd's nerves as you hear it yelling at various points on this brilliant record, where classics such as "La Rock 01" or "My Friend Dario" are mixed alongside new tracks (such as the deeply tribal "Bambalec", the hard disco-edged "Anatoles", or the razor-shaped "30000 Feet Club") that are all but overshadowed by these earlier groundbreaking hits. Hurry up, cause it's supposed to be limited to 5.000 copies, but I guess (hope ?) such a classic electro record (something that doesn't seem to happen so much in these times) shouldn't be confined to a small audience.

" On A Desolate Shore A Shadow Passes By " - Touch - 2007
Electronic / Ambient

A digital-only release from the folks over at Touch, with this new emission from Christian Fennesz, always one of electronic music's most exciting figures. 'On A Desolate Shore A Shadow Passes' is vintage Fennesz, spouting forth digital warmth and gaseous plumes of abstracted guitar in a fashion that manages to be both harmoniously coherent and compositionally challenging. Throughout, the piece is underscored by aggressive high frequency activity that prevents the effect-drenched guitar meanderings from coming too close to anything so banal as outright ambience. As ever, Fennesz' production substantially outweighs that of his imitators, with each passing moment occupied by great swathes of detail and a lighter-than-air sonic consistency. ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!

" Deathconsciousness " - Enemieslist - 2008
Gothic / Industrial / Shoegaze

Have a Nice Life Life is a two-piece outfit from Connecticut that includes a member of the hardcore band, In Pieces; although, this double CD collection has nothing in the way of sound that can compare to that outfit in any sense of the word. Instead, Have a Nice Life actually has a sound that pulls from a variety of influences like Joy Division, Swans, The Cure, etc. and is vaguely reminiscent of some "Brit pop;” but even trying to describe the band's sound in those terms does not fully explain it. The band also attempts to take on some fairly intellectual discourse surrounding a medieval heretical Christian group, called the Antiocheans, by including a thick booklet regarding the controversy, mystery, and persecution of the group over the course of their existence. The concept and execution of Deathconsciousness: The Plow that Broke the Plains & The Future is largely impressive and ambitious, specially so considering that Have a Nice Life funded, produced, and recorded the whole project on their own over the course of six years.

" Entertainment " - EMI/Warner Bros 1979
Post - Punk / Punk - Funk

Some of the most powerful, energized, and memorable music of the U.K.'s potent post-punk era of the late '70s and early '80s came from the trailblazing band Gang of Four, and it all started with 1979's stellar Entertainment! Dave Allen, Hugo Burnham, Andy Gill, and Jon King fused punk, funk, explosive prog-rock, and literate and often incendiary lyrics into a signature, groundbreaking sound that would influence countless bands to come. The original album's brilliant 12 tracks are now remastered and bolstered with four tracks from the rare Yellow EP, plus four never-before-released-songs-making this watershed disc sound bigger and better than ever.

The same year American college students and FM radio stations found hipness in the Clash's "Train in Vain," a quartet of students from England's Leeds University calling themselves Gang of Four released their debut album. Politically charged and pumped full of extremist theories and punk rock vehemence (and now out of print since 1997), Entertainment continues to rank among the most critically acclaimed and influential records of the post-punk epoch it helped to define. The record is funkified by stop-start rhythms and sharp vocals that mimic Joe Strummer's sing-to-shout shifts, a sound that has turned up in the music of a quarter-century of bands, from the Minutemen to Fugazi. The original 12-song track list--including the vehement slam on media and politics "I Found That Essence Rare" and the punk passion play "Damaged Goods"--is reinforced with all four songs from the band's 1980 EP Yellow, as well as four others never-before-released, including a live cover of the Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane."

" has been an on again off again project of David Steinberg's since 2002. Early site contents included photographs of a pilgrimmage to Iceland, and dabblings in sound art. The new site, launched in June 2008provides a new oeuvre into his individual efforts, including video art and experimental literature."
Rethaw is a metaphorical and anagrammatic word play upon at least three dimensions of a collectively imagined syzygy. The first and foremost being a conceptual resonance with ice, its transience, sudden shattering, gradual melting, and the sense in which frozen ice is areturn to a morphological presence it had once embraced, and willembrace again. The instant fracturing of ice upon reaching a certainmelting point could be when the ice has begun to rethaw.

" Lie in Light " - Kranky - 2008
Psycadelic / krautrock / Experimental

You can play pick the influences if you like, but you can do that with any group. Cloudland Canyon certainly owe a debt to the German underground of the 70's, but they have also added flourishes of baroque pop and even a tinge of the 80's New Zealand scene into their sound. That they have ingested these influences and then delivered something as dynamic as this album without sounding like rote imitation is what impresses. The album is anything but one-dimensional, as they traverse a wide swath of territory. From the lock down groove of the opening track "Krautwerk," to the dense buzz of "White Woman," through the pastoral pscyh of "Heme" and on to the gentle wash of the closer "Mothlight," Cloudland Canyon have created an eclectic and rewarding listen.

" Appendix " - K7 - 2007
Electronic / IDM

So the German duo of Funkstorung have apparently called it quits, and they’ve found a perfect way to bow out, giving us an album featuring what they do best: remix other people’s music. These are not your average remixes, mind you: The Bavarian team of Michael Fekesch and Chris de Luca grab the barest essentials of a song and put it through their signature techno sound of furious beats and glitsches. Here the pair tackle many styles and artists, from the funk of Barry Adamson (“Whispering Streets,” by far the album’s best track) to Bjork (“All Is Full of Love,” another winner) to the Raveonettes (“Love in a Trashcan”). Fans will wonder why this disc doesn’t include their highly regarded Wu-Tang remix (legal issues, one must assume), but there’s plenty of aural feasts on the aptly named Appendix. For fans of Aphex Twin and Autechre in particular. James - Soundfix

" In the Sudden Distance " - Zymogen - 2008
Electronic / Ambient / IDM / Experimental

Jimmy Behan released his debut album 'Days Are What We Live In' in 2004 before taking time out to study for a Masters in Music & Media Technologies from Trinity College, where his thesis focused on the compositional possibilities of creative sampling techniques.
Currently, his work focuses on finding emotional connections between the physicality of sounds and their contexts. The physical characteristics of sounds (dynamics, texture and space) are explored via a range of processes before determining the emotional tone of a piece.
The 'In the Sudden Distance EP' attempts to capture that moment when the present suddenly becomes the past, rendering the passing of time as a sudden shift in perspective. Recorded around the time of a relocation to his home town after 16 years, it revolves around themes of change, memory and redemption.
With this concept work Jimmy brings Zymogen to a higher level in the exploration of electronic soundscapes. Zymogen

" Autobahn " - 1974 - Philips / Vertigo
Electronic / Experimental

Though they'd recorded three previous albums, kraftwerk modern pop legacy starts with the sounds of a few footsteps and a slamming car door--the beginning of a 22-minute musically impressionistic excursion down Germany's famed superhighway. An unexpected hit on both sides of the Atlantic, Autobahn's "fahren, fahren, fahren" refrain echoes "Fun, Fun, Fun" by the Beach Boys (just one of Kraftwerk's unlikely influences), while the entire concept recalls Brian Wilson's frustrated attempts at creating what he called "a pocket symphony." The rhythmic synth pulse that carries the title track will be familiar to Kraftwerk admirers, while cofounder Florian Schneider's flute work and other more delicate melodic touches hearken back to the band's prog-rock foundations (as do the atmospheric "Kometenmelodie 1 & 2," "Mitternacht," and "Morgenspaziergang"). Kraftwerk's fascination with technology has been well documented, but the revelation of Autobahn is the playful human spirit behind the robots' masks. Jerry McCulley - Amazon

Diesel / Flaunt 9th Anniversary

In this short experimental film for Flaunt Magazine I had the amazing opportunity to just simply play in the world of cool. Working off of Diesel's current campaign, "Human After All," and pages literally torn from Flaunt we mixed live action, 3d, stop motion and traditional cel animation to end Diesel's campaign with a huge bang.

" Solid State " - Kompakt - 2008
Electronic / IDM / Indie

Canny Swedes Pluxus have quietly been plying their highly accomplished, woozy, electronic take on guitar based pop for over twelve years to relative indifference. However, their excellent 2006 effort Solid State’s reissue by minimal techno powerhouse Kompakt may finally start slowly pulling fingers from arseholes and getting people to start paying attention. Seriously, Solid State makes Hot Chip’s flatulently disappointing Made In The Dark sound like the Eastenders theme tune next to a lavishly crafted Popol Vuh score.

The record’s greatest strength lies in its ability to successfully weave and craft its myriad reference points into an exciting and wholly idiosyncratic whole. Far from sounding like a chucked-together attempt at a fourth record Solid State reeks of considered craft and carefully wrought edifice. Its overall sense of creative unity is not far from the gooey, happy feeling that hearing the dying seconds of a completely listened to Autechre album evoke. James Knight - Drowned in Sound

" Object 47 " - Pink Flag - 2008
Post - Punk / Alternative

Wire is proud to announce that it has completed work on its 11th studio album, continuing the momentum that began with the band's 2006 reactivation and Read & Burn 03. Dubbed 'Object 47' - 47 representing its position as the 47th release in the Wire discography - the album finds Wire utilising the core writing partnership responsible for Pink Flag, Colin Newman and Graham Lewis. The latest release is described by the band as having "tunes with zoom", and this is best illustrated by the melodic and textural development already suggested by elements of last year's Read & Burn 03.

" I Thought I Was Over That " - Morr - 2005
Rare, Remixed and B-sides / Electronic / Indie

Lali Puna - "I thought I was over that" is the playful offspring of a band finally confident enough to re-visit their most daring, misfitting, individually conceived moments to date. it's also an opportunity to look at those artists who have inspired them in one way or another over the years, pressing them to develop through remixes, collaborations and cover versions where their ideas blossomed from raw material provided by other artists - and vice versa. the list of luminaries is impressive.

These songs shy away from tales of girly broken hearts and bubblegum storyboards, instead exposing a world-weariness - an "ageing out of time" that's often at odds with the adrenaline the band ignite musically. Its on the experimentations, collaborations, deviations and remixes found on this album, however, that this mood is offset against its most startling backdrop - allowing the band to get lost in different sounds, ideas and interventions...and still find their way home.Boomkat

" Challenger " - Hospital Productions - 2008
Drone / Noise / Post-Rock / Electronic / Experimental

"Burning Star Core began in 1993 in Cincinnati, OH where it currently resides with primary member C. Spencer Yeh. It is considered a project and not a pseudonym. While the Burning Star Core project has included much wider ensembles, Challenger is a direct solo composition of C. Spencer Yeh. This recording is perhaps Yeh's most revealing, unguarded work. Challenger is a composed work, not an improvisation, with each piece revolving around a central melodic theme, featuring field recordings, which serve as an audio diary. The sounds range from pure tonal mood to huge electronic crescendos. But what's most remarkable is the use of space, where parts come in then drop out to build up the emotion. When the piano sound crashes in 'Mysteries of the Organ,' it reflects a frustration with paradise, a rejection of perfection, a jolt of inexplicable throes of life. In contrast is the quiet, haunting 'Hopelessly Devoted,' which sounds like a love letter written to outer space. These make for an album that is both dynamic yet consistent as a full statement." Force de xposure

" Suicide " - The Grey Area - 1977
re-released - Mute - 2002
Post - Punk / New Wave

This remarkable debut album, released a full seven years after the group had formed, was still way ahead of its time back in 1978. Suicide--Alan Vega on vocals and Martin Rev on keyboards and drum machine--are one of the most original acts in the history of popular music. They're often called the first synthpop act; synth-punk is closer to the truth--their music was far more edgy and menacing than that of any of their followers, with the notable exception of Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, et al. Suicide drew on the right protopunk influence (Nuggets-type stuff, Velvets, Stooges) and came out of the same Mercer Arts scene that bred the New York Dolls. Their guitar-bass-and-"real"-drummer-deprived setup outraged audiences; on the superb bonus disc you can hear a European crowd rioting in the background while their apocalyptic nursery rhymes sound away. Tough guy Vega croons like an evil Elvis bred on garage rock and performance art; the stoic Rev lays churning, repetitive, and oddly melodic lines down on his beat-up Farfisa, and the ancient drum machine--it actually sounds steam-driven--propels the music toward a ratty, Blade Runner future. "Dream Baby Dream," "Che," "Ghost Rider"--these eerie, sturdy, steam-punk anthems rank among the most visionary, melodic experiments the rock realm has yet produced. This reissue is bright and clear-sounding, and with the full disc of live performances (a 1977 CBGB's soundboard tape plus the legendary "23 Minutes Over Brussels" performance) this is an essential purchase.

Mikosa Foundation was founded in Amsterdam in 2005 by an international executive board. Based on our manifesto, we want to spread artists' works, being a the firment for a box of contemporary art, bringing different styles and visual images together, ranging works from graffiti writers to internet designer and from street artists to video artists. All of those people have got one basic thing in common: their black book. This is usually filled up with first handmade ideas and developments, unfinished artworks, rough sketches, the idea we transferred to our first long-term project, called Mikosa Magazine.

Mari Inukai was born in Nagoya, Japan. In 1995, Mari came to the US to pursue her studies in art. She first attended Santa Monica Community College (Mentor program), then Associates in Art, Sherman Oaks, CA and finally California Institute of the Arts, Valencia, CA, where she recieved her BFA in Character Animation in 2004. Her professional works include CartoonNetwork, Burbank, Nickelodeon, New York, Nylon Motion Inc., LA, Oishii Productions, LA, and NGTV, LA. Her short animated film, Blue and Orange, has been an official selection at numerous national and international film festivalss including the Sundance Film Festival 2003, and was the Japanese Grand Prix winner at the Short Shorts Film Festival EXPO 2005. Besides her animation works, Mari regularly exhibits her paintings and drawings, designs clothes, ceramic toy figurines, and other fun products. She lives in Los Angeles with her daughter, Sena.

"The video Synchronator demonstrates the audio modulations of a video signal, which were produced by means of an audio mixer. This work of Bas van Koolwijk and Gert-Jan Prins falls in the category of medium-specific media art. It is reminiscent of the early days of video art, when artists experimented with image and sound. Synchronator came into existence during a residency at Impakt (Utrecht, the Netherlands) in June 2006, and marked the starting point of their cooperation.
Bas van Koolwijk concentrates mainly on digital experiments, while Gert-Jan Prins mostly works with analogue techniques. They both carry out research into the relationship between sound and image, as well as the limits of what is audible and visible."

" Cloudbuster " - Gomma - 2008
Electronic / Alternative

Italian Mathias Modica and German partner Jonas Imbery (known as Munk and Leroy Hanghofer have been releasing their own music as well as records by other artists such as WhoMadeWho, Box Codax and Headman on their little label Gomma for a few years. The label (according to NME: “Gomma is like a German DFA!”) is part of a new scene of freestyle labels that connect music with alternative art and underground fashion, such as Ed Banger records, Tigersushi and Kitsune in Paris, DFA in New York, Eskimo in Belgium.

Munk released two much acclaimed albums, the most recent one “Aperitivo” (2004) featuring James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem. In 2000/2001 they released the No-Wavedisco/Postpunk compilations ANTI NY and TEUTONIK DISASTER that preceded a big wave of similar releases.

Live Fast! Die Old! is the first single to be taken from Munk’s new album Cloudbuster set for release in June 08. As well as Asia Argento the album features collaborations with Matty Safer (The Rapture), 70s German movie icon Klaus Lemke and Telonius

" Violets " - Ghostly - 2008
Electronic / IDM / Experimental

The recurring theme of Violets is indeed a fascination with the human voice – voyeuristic telephone and CB conversations, the musings of a girl on dictaphone, crowd noises from anti-war rallies – these elements hover just beneath the lush and temperamental musical surface. On “Endormie”, guitar plucks crystallize in real-time, while the voice of legendary Cranes vocalist Alison Shaw surfaces in frosted gasps. The result is a calming and inescapable melancholic pull. Elsewhere, the massive leitmotif of “Disconnected” evokes images of a lonely neighbor practicing his weathered 6-string in a barren room while explosions overtake his home and psyche. Twine have crafted their most highly polarizing and fully realized record to date. Violets casts a haunting shadow and its many inspirations, from the largesse of world affairs, to the minutiae of domestic life, reinforce its startling relevance in an age of cultural fracture and discontent.

" Vertical Tones And Horizontal Noise " - Dc Recordings - 2006
Psychedelic / Alternative / Electronica

Here at the DC nerve centre we thought it impossible that the voluptuous "Aimee Tallulah Is Hypntoised" album could be surpassed, which just goes to show how far beyond human comprehension the powers of The Emperor Machine actually are.

The second full length transmission from the collosal robotic brain spinning in outer space (but beaming directly to Stafford), also known as The Emperor Machine, and the plaudits appeared like flies on a badger carcass when this came out - too numerous to count and multiplying all the time.

Featured on this album are most but not all of the tracks that appeared on the six vinyl series "Vertical Tones And Horizontal Noise" also the sordid pop genius that is "No Sale No I.D." as well as numerous deviant sonic interludes; the hypnotic "Avalution..." tracks, and the penetrating "Something From The Cox-Doree Institure".

Electronic / Post-Punk / Experimental/

The NME declares, "Shy Child are to Kraftwerk what The White Stripes are to Led Zeppelin!" And here is their story... Nate Smith (Drums) and Pete Cafarella (Vox / Keytar) met at Wesleyan University in the mid-90's where Nate had invited Pete to join his band. Although Pete was kicked out a few days later the two formed a fast friendship that would eventually lead to the formation of Shy Child once they both had relocated to NYC. Initially the band was pursued when time permitted between their various projects. They recorded their 2004 album, "One With the Sun" with small expectations and an even smaller budget, recording it in Pete's apartment to a computer with Chris Zane for the price of pizza and beer. It would prove to be just enough…

The band caught the attention of producer Paul Epworth (Kate Nash / Bloc Party/ The Rapture) at SXSW and soon they were in the studio working on new material along with the band's previous producer, Chris Zane (Les Savy Fav/ White Rabbits / Asobi Seksu). The resulting album, "Noise Won't Stop" bristles with frantic energy and blistering tones leading with the first track "Drop The Phone" and featuring the U.S. debut sonic single, "Astronaut". And producer/artist extraordinaire SpankRock, lends a his rapping/vocals to the slickest albumJol track "Kick Drum." Kill Rock Stars

" Choose A Bright Morning " - Drowned in Sound - 2006
Shoegaze / Alternative

19 Jul - Bazart - Den Haag
20 Jul - Patronaat - Haarlem

With the shoegaze revival really starting to gather pace, this Swedish four piece (Uppsala for the pedants) look well positioned to land on top of the pile - not by peddling the same old shit, but through shirking the role of revisionists in favour of a naturally evolved sound. Opening with previous 7" 'From Across The Sea', Jeniferever guarantee Kevin Shield references a-go-go from lazy journalists the world over (us included...), as a broiling cowl of creamy soundscape wallops into properly dramatic jangle-guitars and hushed vocals. It's a corker. From here on in things progress at a similarly breathless rate, as Jeniferever massage elements of Sigur Ros, My Morning Jacket, Mum and Elliot Smith into their widescreen vision. Never crossing from the epic into pointless bombast, songs like 'A Ghost In The Corner Of Your Eye', 'The Sound Of Beating Wings' and 'Magdeleno' manage to sound genuinely huge without resorting to the usual box of tricks - succeeding where many have failed as crushingly personal themes are framed within a broader context.
