Soft Riot is a London based act consisting of one JJD (Jack Duckworth); a former Vancouverite who has clocked in around fifteen years of musical output in various bands, starting off in the mid-nineties in North America's vibrant art-punk/hardcore underground through to the revival of synth-based post-punk music just over a decade or so ago.
Soft Riot is where those paths and experiences meet in the here and now. Drawing inspiration from synthesizer-based film soundtracks of yesteryear, drones, early EBM, minimal wave, a bit of synthpop and a heavy dose of throbbing appregiated rhythms, Soft Riot is a science-fiction heavy sound that narrates the listener through today's fractured post-modern world with hints of black humour.
Title track is taken from the forthcoming Soft Riot album "Fiction Prediction" while You've Been A Seeker For Long Enough is exclusive for this releaseIn their music.
Mastered by Martin Bowes (Attrition), 2013

A NEW LIFE
A New Life is a new minimal synth wave project founded by Maurizio Pustianaz well-known by his works for Chain DLK Magazine.
Project was born in 2011 because of a personal need to approach things in a fresh way.
Musically, A New Life, is influenced by early The Human League and Soft Cell: the melody meets the richness of synths oscillators. With a sound deep rooted into the 80s, Maurizio, is trying his best to personalize those influences creating songs that work on a universal key: feelings. Using a bit of analog dirtiness and warmth, A New Life want to gather cool sounds with catchy melodies.
The new tape "Fright Treasures" contains eight tracks recorded during the last year and half. It talks about the discovery of our personal treasures, the ones you find digging into your soul. What's the "frightening" factor? Well, while you discover yourself you find also things you should fix, you face your dark side… something you have to deal with.
Is that scary enough?
