k.a.c.z.m.a.r.e.k”, from the title to the sounds, is intended to be a more personal project for paul ritch – indelibly closer to the confluences of sounds that he hears embodying the spirit of kaczmarek. he drives the mind’s eye deep into the inner-ear with the album’s spacious opening tracks, only to leave your head bobbing with the extraterrestrial rhythms that emerge as the main body of the album. moody and foreboding, loaded with the scattered, staccato and broken beats, more ovular than linear in composition and ranging from vaporous-ambience to hyperventilating grooves, the nine tracks on this album defy categorisation. the “k.a.c.z.m.a.r.e.k” album will give the listener a deep well to return to. the vinyl release will be a fittingly rare issue – only 100 numbered copies are going out, while digital releases will run parallel. keeping with the dark and cryptic theme of the first releases russian artist, sasha sime, is back for his third kczmrk cover design

the free fall, to dive head first into something, is scary for most people. for some it is the most exciting thing however and the only possible path anyways. florian is one of those driven artists who never sounds the same, his signature tone is the free fall into new soundscapes, new ways of using his analog electronic instruments and carving out the essence for the dancing individual.

this double a-side e.p. is more than just a first glimpse of empirion’s forthcoming album “resume”. the techno industrial hybrid project from essex, uk is coming back with a bang of an e.p., and perhaps the strongest tracks as of their career yet. paired with strong remixes and two exclusive tracks the main 2 a-side represent each a style of the band. “i am electronic” is a grinding breakbeat/trance maelstrom with an irresistible vocoder voice arrangement that makes the track instantly re-recognisable and irresistible on the dancefloor. -red noise- represents the industrial roots of the band and is an update to nitzer ebb style ebm paired with idm elements and strong (human) vocals. in three simple words: an unmissable comeback!
