DER SCHWUND (Berlin)
If D.A.F., the early Kraftwerk, Kurt Schwitters and Der Plan were to unite in one person, long haired and bent over a microphone, and work on a series of synthesizers, this would probably come closest to the overall experience of SCHWUND. One man, with one leg in the 80s, and with the other, too, chants calls to a metallic-melancholic trance dance that your body won’t reject. Twitching, jumping, jumping, man as material as organ as machine.
HYSTERIE (Le Turc Mecanique, Paris)
Hydra with three heads crossing French song for bar pillars and synthetic sounds with an industrial tendency, assuming a frontal approach up to the bogeyman and a strong tendency to open it up to angry subjects, Hystérie embodies the second generation of the cold-indus sound that will terrorize you.
VIA TIRANA (Brighton, UK)
Via Tirana is the evolving musical project of an Albanian born Brighton based artist. The sound can be described as a synergy of electronic dance beats, live instrumentation and catchy vocal hooks.
