the new minimalrome series for clubbers in sick-leave! the hacker known for his classic releases with miss kittin comes with a new track called -haunted- which is a kraftwerk, dopplereffekt inspired electro track, with an 808 punching pattern counterpointing a deep analogue bassline enveloped in rich, harmonic pads. on the b side, a remix by feedback remix who delivers a solid acid electro techno work out as we know of some lory d and early passarani works. the second remix is the banda banetti remix (a new minimalrome project) with pulsating acid lines and fast paced hautning techno electro beats. get those strobe lights flashin!! mrx records are sadly limited to 250 copies

after the night sea journey of francesco clemente-heinrich dressels split release il faro, minimalrome returns with a concept album inspired by the silence and the noises of the plague. heinrich dressel, umberto, anton maiof, alessandro parisi, and vercetti technicolor explore the solitude, terror, stillness and unsophisticated chaos of the epidemic in a 5 tracks lp that is limited to 250 hand-stamped copies and comes with a 12 pages color a5 booklet.
cool new release with sick jtc acid remix on minimal rome records! polysick has the honour to have the 25th release of the label, with two tracks for the mrx-patiendum est series. from the mysterious hypnotic visions of digital native (planet mu) and the proustian reverie of daydream (audiomer), polysick moves towards an obscure and sinister dancefloor with a 12 that hosts on the b-side a whirling acid remix by jtc.
*a dead summer* is the highly recommended first album by der noir, a roman trio offering a dark and gloomy sound reminiscent of early bauhaus and the sisters of mercy. this is the remix album, released by minimalrome and featuring heinrich dressel, mick wills, teslasonic, newclear waves and alessandro parisi. highly limited to 120 copies! dont miss out on it!
a new 3-track 12 by canadas solvent, known for his melodic electro and vocoder pop releases on ghostly, morr music, and his own suction records. for minimalrome, solvent debuts a new approach, so please dont expect any sweet solvent melodies this time, in fact, dont expect any melodies at all. here solvent delivers 3 tracks of pure bunker/rephlex-style acid, monotonous and pounding. fasten is the most straight-up acid track present, nothing but 707/606 percussion + x0xb0x squelch. latch and secure are more dark, abstract, dirty. secure is epic madness, clocking in at over 16 minutes, at times slow and prodding, elsewhere growling furiously in sheets of distortion. every track has been edited down from hour+ long hardware studio jams, with the computer acting strictly as a multi-track audio recorder. solvents customized acid box, a heavily modified x0xb0x, features heavily on every track, alongside classic techno boxes like the 808, 101, and pro one. limited to 250 copie
selected advent deal. - after the completion of the >studium amphorae< trilogy, heinrich dressel returns with a four-track release. a compendium of crime-o-rama deliberate violence, with the legowelt connivance. maybe the first chapter of a new dressel series?
the new minimalrome series for clubbers in sick-leave. limited to 250 copies. j.t.c. is the techno alter ego of tadd mullinix/dabrye. his style ranges from caffeine techno to dark ebm tunes to sick house. this time tadd brings two jacking 4/4 chicago house monsters, embroidered here and there by dirty 303 loops, whistles, eerie vocal samples and crispy pads. both amazingly packaged in a loud analogue production.
this is the second experiment from the teslasonic lab. this time, teslasonic descends into the bowels of the globe to bring forth its hidden sounds and to unlock the imprisoned and immense energies. the task is to subdue the devastating spark of prometheus and the thundering bolt of jove, annihilating time and space. from the dark depths of electro to the bright regions of the cosmic sounds. check!
after 3 years the second chapter of the various artists compilation urbi et orbi! this time with the romans composite profuse and fdbk, and 2 great tracks from rude 66 and mick wills. dont miss this one!
THE MAZE OF VIOLENCE (IL LABIRINTO DI ROMA VIOLENTA)
12" Vinyl NL02.02.09
this obscure lost soundtrack for an even more obscure (and also lost and never finished) italia violenta cop movie was recently discovered when i bought the dusty reel tapes from a restaurant owner in fiumicino, a seaside town near rome. panter 777 aka il labirinto di roma violenta aka the maze of violence, he told me, was directed by gervasio giardano in 1981 and was considered too (politically) explicit by the movie production company who dropped the project after the first screening. the soundtrack, an explosion of wahwah funk riffs and juicy analog synthesizers, was composed by an obscure band called nacho patrol. the restaurant owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was one of the band members and composed most of the tracks. (danny wolfers)
francesco clemente and heinrich dressel cross the sea of sounds where everything is permitted. the outcome is an album thats rich in fascinations, and divided in two parts: in the first one the canadian composer plays some suspended and gentle sounds, while in the second one dressel brings the listener to an eternal struggle between darkness and light, comfort and despair.
