on ultra satans second 7inch release on hoga nord rekords. the band is developing a new genre and concept: “freedom rock”. which is also the title on one of the tracks. “freedom rock” is a step beyond world music which would be the wrong label when ultra satan sounds too spaced out and out of this world.

ultra satan is like a space being. living alone in an enormously big and empty space station. orbiting our planet. with mathematical precision this genius creates music that effects us earthlings on a transcendental plane and shakes the foundation we lead or lives upon.

within lok recordings’ sixth release. we introduce lokin to you. we’re coming up with something to break boundaries and strengthen the spirit of artistic freedom. -the fall- by the belgian-born berlin-based singer. songwriter and producer cook strummer - aka maxime donnet - is an evocative ode to lost love and forgotten spirituality. channeling the post-punk synth sound of his home country’s cold wave movement of the late 70s and early 80s. donnet has absorbed the sounds of his adopted home in germany. taking that all-pervasive electronic music that is all around him and morphing it into something new. the result is -the fall-. recorded in a cell located in the basement of an old stasi prison (studio k61 in berlin). it’s an album with one eye on the dancefloor. but one that works just as well when the party is over. it’s an album that blends the organic with the synthetic. mixing guitars and synths with post-dubstep flourishes and drum machines. it’s an album about something. the name of the album has been chosen in reference to first single fallen. the idea of falling in life and waking up again. it’s also about the fact that it’s not the fall that kills you. a fall can be graceful. a fall can improve a life perspective and create new paths. it can and does make you strong. the main metaphor in there is one of reincarnation. indeed. it’s the story of a soul negotiating with god to not reincarnate on earth again. but being forced to do it anyways. experience something different!

limited edition of 1000 copies on green & yellow marbled vinyl (death money) with download code included.
vive la void is the new solo project of sanae yamada. co-founder and keyboard player of moon duo. yamada wrote and recorded the self-titled debut album over roughly a two-year period. during windows of downtime in moon duo’s substantial touring and recording schedule. the dense. shape-shifting atmospheres of the seven songs grew out of late-night basement experiments in the layering of synthesizer tracks. a process that also led to meditations on the changeable nature of memory and perception. the result is an undulating blend of ethereal swirl. low end thrumming. and electric crackle. buoyed by yamada’s understated but captivating vocal melodies and her striking lyrics.
third album from the french spacerock electro combo masterminded by richard pinhas. heldon’s darkest work lays another stone in their sonic mosaic: synths. drones. fuzz and trippy improvisations. intense heldon!
