MW057 In Aeternam Vale – Gnd Lift 12″ EP

Minimal Wave is pleased to present a fourth 12” single from our French favorites, In Aeternam Vale. This one features another monumental 14 minute techno masterpiece called Gnd Lift. On the flip side are two pure wave tracks, J’ai Mangé des Nerfs and Animals Don’t Mind. Gnd Lift is a slow building hazy hypnotic track with heavy atmosphere, fitting perfectly on a smoke filled dance floor. J’ai Mangé des Nerfs is a classic vocal driven synthpop track with the grit characteristic of In Aeternam Vale’s 80’s cassette works. The 12” closes with Animals Don’t Mind, a slow and deeply emotive smoldering darkwave track that speaks directly to the heart, this one feels the most personal thus far. The Gnd Lift 12” shows us all sides of In Aeternam Vale, his strengths lying in his ability to create both techno masterpieces and classic underground wave tracks, moving seamlessly from one to the next. None of these tracks have ever been released before although In Aeternam Vale has been performing them live recently with much acclaim. The pressing is limited to 999 copies, all pressed on 160 gram clear transparent deep purple vinyl, accompanied by a hand-numbered matte printed sleeve. Order your copy here, $18. Vinyl orders will begin shipping on December 5th. Digital release coming soon.

CITI015 An-i – Gutz 12″ EP

Cititrax is proud to present a follow-up to An-i’s Kino-i debut 12”, released in February 2014. An-i continues his love affair with electronics offering us three distinct slabs of throbbing machine funk. The opening track Gutz is a dense mutant high energy number, modern yet timeless. Rut, the first track An-i recorded whilst still living in New York and the first one to catch our attention, opens the B side with a massive dose of syncopated teutonic mayhem, spacier and sparser than the rest. Save Us completes the release with an anthem of dirty warehouse techno.
The record is pressed on 160 gram fluorescent magenta orange vinyl and housed in a high gloss grey Pantone sleeve. Order your copy here, $18. Vinyl orders will begin shipping December 5th. Digital release coming soon.
