Anywave are back in action with a new Fléau release, it was a long time since they released their first self-titled album, three years have already passed like it was nothing. Together with their partner in crime, Atelier Ciseaux Records, a five-track album titled “II” will be released on a limited edition run of vinyls, a collector’s edition of 50 hand-numbered transparent vinyls and a book by Raphaël Lugassy called “Organs“, and a regular edition of 200 black vinyls. The artwork for the release is stunning as usual, the work of Myriam Barchechat, photographies by Raphaël Lugassy.
It is very true that Mathieu Mégemont‘s (Fléau) new direction strays away from his original sound, but it introduces a whole other complexity found otherwise within more alternative electronic genres – creeping in between the ambiguous nature of the sweeping, soothing landscapes of sound that hook you in. Even though some aspects of his new release stays true to what he created on his debut-album, this newly developed and intriguing metamorphosis suggests he’s expanded – instead of becoming cliché.
We’re honored to be exclusively premiering “IV“, a song taken from the forthcoming album, due to be co-released by Anywave and Atelier Ciseaux on vinyl, on the 29th of March. You can pre-order it already by following this link, listen to it exclusively via Repartiseraren down below.
Finally, Vanessa Irena of Knifesex – as she calls her solo-project – is getting a proper debut-release via 3t3rnal Records on the 17th of November. Repartiseraren have gotten the exclusive opportunity to premiere a full track from her album “Babalon“. According to herself the inspiration for this release have come through an appreciation of the occult, a dedication to the apocalyptic. The ritualistic nature of her music is expanded upon in this release, for those of you who’ve heard “Blood From Stone” from the first compilation on Repartiseraren will not be disappointed – it is more of the same and even furthers the experimental, but ambitious electronic sound.
There is no secret either that she draws these inspirations together within a feminist approach. The album consists of seven songs and we’re going to give you “Living Flame” to listen to, a week before the release-date. You will be able to purchase the album digitally through 3t3rnal Records on the 17th of November. Listen to the exclusive song down below.
With stunning aesthetic visuals provided by Svartaphotography, the ethereal vision of Ele Ypsis collapses and is built up within their latest album “Meiosis“. Musically it would not stand on its own with just the percussive IDM and breakbeat sounds, ambient it’d be a shell of what it could be – together with Laure Le Prunenec’s vocals – everything starts and ends in total disharmonious harmony. A double-edged metaphysical sword thrust deep within yourself. What a marvelous piece of music everything on this album is. One can not, however, underestimate Stélian Derenne’s craftiness when it comes to the musical composition, as the vocals benefit largely from that suspicious and ever changing atmosphere.
We’re glad to be premiering the best song on that release, which is: “Diplotene“, as it boils down into a common denominator in terms of how the album can be perceived, what elements are best fitted together with each other and how music really can stand out from the norm – in terms of ambition and overall quality. It is an outrageously great song and we were surprised by it ourselves, having listened to it over and over again.
In collaboration with M-Tronic Label, four days before the official release date – we’re proud to give you the ability to listen to “Diplotene” in full via our Soundcloud. Pre-order the vinyl release, here.
Michael Idehall have been featured here countless times, but he never ceases to improve in regards to his industrial music (seancetronica) – now releasing his eighth album, if you only count full, solo releases. His work spans from the occult and back into electronic music, beyond any comprehension at times and sometimes in the realm of fathomable. With this album on the German label Raubbau, titled “Machine Spirit Transmission” – he widens his approach exponentially, including more beat-oriented sounds in terms of a general theme musically.
Aesthetically it features a new emblazoned symbol which we don’t know the inherent meaning about, but for those eager to know about the symbolism of Michael Idehall (the project), you should venture through his gates and into The Hermetic Library. Without knowing all to much, Aleister Crowley seems to be an influence in terms of the occult and esoteric nature in which music like this is created.
We’re pleased to announce to you that we’ve teamed up with Raubbau to bring you a full track from the forthcoming album. “Dream Circuitry” is the middle-point in which this album is construed, or at least that’s how we feel about it. Tune in and remember to buy the physical tape from the Raubbau distributer ant-zen, or simply order the digital release from Raubbau if you prefer it that way. The release date for it is on the 25th of October.
Surrealistic techno, ambivalent new beat music and a large chunk of industrial is what could best describe Interactive. The 90’s duo have a plethora of singles and EPs to choose from, but only three albums in total – two of which were more of compilations then a proper album anyway. So it is with pleasure that we’ve dug in and taken out “The Bass Is On Fire” for exclusive premiere here on Repartiseraren, in collaboration with Mecanica Records. This is a re-issue that also contains something new – a remix by Ancient Methods of the title-track “The Techno Wave“.
What we like about the one we’re premiering, from the b-side, is the roughness and unrelenting experimental sound which they’ve produced. It is more industrial then it is new beat but still in the latter genre – which makes it a whole lot more interesting then contemporary music in the same style. So we present to you this song and hope you’ll enjoy listening to it. Some may even venture to say that it is techno as well – which is true in a sense – as it stems from the Frankfurt Tekkno scene.
If you like the music, order the 12¨ vinyl (or digital release, or both) from Mecanica Records. You can listen to the exclusive premiere down below.
Man, Woman, Friend, Computer released their debut-album self-titled album last year and now Yuliya Tsukerman (of Mana Contemporary) have created a music-video titled: “Exordium/Outgrown“. The music is electroacoustic pop music, with experimental tendencies. It is exciting to see such craftsmanship when it comes to music-videos.
The methods Yuliya have used are one-hundred percent analog. With the help of centuries old Czech marionette-techniques, the dolls are paired with modern materials and objects, creating a story that is moving. It is the story of a spaceman coming to terms with his own isolation and loss as he cares for an injured alien. A narrative is created – analogue versus digital – a re-imaginative trip from old to new – pairing them both, but telling them apart as well.
Listen to the album down below and view the video up above.
Under hemlighetsfullhetens fana, nåja, åtminstone i ljudväg – har Æmɨt skapats – sprungen ur eller åtminstone inspirerade av uråldrig Egyptisk mytologi (läs: Ammit), och med fanbärarna Jonas Fredriksson (ALVAR), Erik Söderberg (Kinder aus Asbest) och Jimmy Svensson (Yabibo Hazurfa/Slusk), så blir deras gemensamma insats monumental på enbart tre minuter. Det de levererar är motståndskraftig industriell techno med fokus på en trollbindande slags atmosfärisk industriell musik, där mystiska syntslingor drabbar samman med rungande bastrummor – som blir en hetlevrad men återhållsam kombination. Det måste påpekas att det förmodligen är såhär det skulle låta när dessa män låter sina alter ego formas till ett – på pricken.
Musiken har en trollbindande rytm och en säregen karaktär. Ljudlandskapet har en röd tråd man kan hänga med i och den är väldigt dansvänlig. Estetiken är mörk som den borde vara, vilket ger en sammanhängande känsla i sig då det även påminner en om att detta gemensamma projekt drar i flera trådar samtidigt – eftersom att man lyckas vara både musikaliskt och estetiskt tilltalande – detta hade varit något som hade kunnat släppas på Beläten om den etiketten fortfarande hade varit i bruk. Rent produktionsmässigt är det ingenting som fallerar heller, alla små nyanser som bidrar till musikens helhet kan skönjas. Från minsta underliggande slaginstrument till knastret och bruset som understödjer det atmosfäriska och brutalt undersköna.
På torsdag i nästa vecka intar de scenen på Under Bron i Stockholm (Skanstull, gratis entré) (ALVAR presenterar) med sin första livespelning någonsin, tillsammans med en utvald skara av artister och DJ’s. Mellan 17:00 och 03:00 så kan man även se Celldöd och Dissociō Modus Trāns live – medan de som DJ:ar kommer att vara Mattias Anger (Complete Control Productions, Kollaps Records) och Daniel Jonasson (Covenant, S.A.W.).
Man kan hittills bara lyssna till ett smakprov av vad som komma skall, men det som ni kommer att få höra kommer att sätta sig i hjärnbarken omgående – vilket lindrar ens begär för fullständiga låtar, någorlunda. Lyssna här nedanför via Soundcloud.
