Exclusive Premiere: Alles – Fala

a2363650294_10

Unhinged to the utmost degree, fumbling in the dark to connect the dots. From a viable option to a crazed mixture, you couldn’t imagine how it would be if electro-pop was turned upside down and channeled through minimal synth. With the uncompromising duo Alles – comprised of Marcin Regucki and Paweł Strzelec – anything goes. Include a vision beyond a communist society, post-communism if you will, infused with modern society’s delusional consumerism and empty-handed materialism and you’ve got the fuse to set things off. Enhanced beats waddle through a decayed interior, an urban environment that is almost claustrophobic. With the help of different genres like cold-wave, synthwave and every other electronic sub-genre you could think of – everything’s already post-something. These two men create an invitation for both a linguistic invitation to basic Polish – to a more international touch of English, entering the digital age of errors with “404” – getting to the middle-ground with technical ingeniousness with “GPS“. If there would be any need for a red line, just follow their sound-scape and try understanding the meaning of their lyrics and the titles for their tracks. As much as they give hints to what’s going on, they might also mislead you into thinking something else – the ambivalent quality which is; their cunningness.

This is their debut-album that lies in front of your eyes anew. It’s not the physical version, but their digital packaging that you’re viewing. As forthright as their intentions are, there’s no doubt why the name of this album is “Post“. Six months ago they had a cassette which constituted the original form of their debut – now they’re re-mastered, re-packaged – officially launched on vinyl. Don’t be mistaken, the foundation they stand upon is the same and their intentions also seem to be intact. Only one thing has changed besides what have already been written and that is; this time around they have a brand new track which goes with the purchase of the vinyl. This vinyl-edition is limited to 500 copies and comes as a transparent vinyl, together with “Fala” (Wave) – the exception which confirms the rule – an anomaly which showcases their musical ambivalence. Repartiseraren have been lucky enough to receive the honor of exclusively premiering “Fala“, as we collaborate with Mecanica Records whom are releasing the vinyl. Stream this song exclusively down below and pre-order a limited vinyl, shipping on the 25th of October. Or if you don’t have the patience to wait that long, order the digital version which is out on the 15th of October. Here comes the wave that will flood your gates.

If you want to see this duo perform, their next date(s) will be 18/10 on Klubokawiarnia Chlodina in Warsaw, 31/10 on Urban Spree (Sinewaves) in Berlin, and 28/11 on C.R.K (Return To The Batcave) in Wroclaw.

Exclusive Premiere: Neugeborene Nachtmusik – Two Steps At The Time

ET034

Two parties went down in Berlin less than a month and a week ago. The first event featured live-acts from a compilation released on Enfant Terrible, the second one featured a wide-range of different DJ’s. Former Descent, Sololust, Europ Europ, F O Q L, Neugeborene Nachtmusik, Good Cop / Naughty Cop, and DJ M were on-stage with the first event “A Gathering Of Post-Everything” – taking the name of the compilation “Post-Everything” – spinning it around with Radio Resistencia at The Loft in Berlin. At the same time, Disko Resistencia had the friday night fever and embellished the evening with DJ M., DJ Alacidius, DJ Philipp Strobel (aufnahme + wiedergabe) and DJ Down The Rabbit Hole. Organizers for the events were; Enfant Terrible & xXx Berlin for Disko Resistencia, Enfant Terrible, xXx Berlin and Sentience for “A Gathering Of Post-Everything“.

When it comes to the compilation, the artists featured on it were Former Descent vs Sololust, Europ Europ, FOQL – on the A-Side of the tape – whilst Neugeborene Nachtmusik and Good Cop / Naughty Cop were featured on the B-Side. This compilation was issued in conjunction with those live-events. According to Martijn who runs the label, the purpose with this release was to have a representation of familiar faces from Enfant, but also with people outside of that circle – to showcase a less cliched approach to the genres which these artists and groups represent. Since it was some time ago that the compilation was released and that the events were closer in time, this is written a bit late because of unfortunate circumstances. That does not make the exclusive track less exclusive. Because this track is even more interesting now than it was when it was first put up. Every time I listen to it, I realize the different complexities that surround it. The sound-scape is really fleeting and so far away, yet so close at all times. You can listen to “Two Steps At The Time” exclusively, by Neugeborene Nachtmusik, down below. If you like what you’re hearing, you can order the tape directly from Enfant Terrible.
