The 4th album from Ascii.Disko, an emotional and introspective album for fans of Matthew Dear and Joy Division. Surprisingly emotional and introspective, Black Orchid: From Airline to Lifelines is the fourth full-length album released under the Ascii.Disko name, and the second on Canadian label Artoffact Records. Mastermind Daniel Gerhard Holc is one of the most innovative producers of electro-clash, techno, and synthpop music in the European scene today, and recognized for his artistic achievements worldwide. Over the last few years, his music has been showcased in art galleries in Japan and Mexico, as well as in Oslo, Bogota, Seoul, Madrid, and Milan just to name a few. The new album explores new territory; think Matthew Dear meets Joy Division. With such a diverse output (who else DJs to late-night rave crowds and produces minimal drone for gallery openings?), Ascii.Disko is one of the artists to watch in 2011.

EP edition:

empusae is a project created by sal-ocin who is also a member of various other projects such as this morn’ omina, tzolk’in, project arctic and also works as a live member of ah cama-sotz and in slaughter natives. sal-ocin is always open-minded about working together with other artists, as can be heard on this album: a liaison with manabu hiramoto a.k.a. shinkiro from osaka, japan who collaborated with artists like contagious orgasm, hybryds and jack or jive, and who has also made releases under the name kotodama. organic.aural.ornaments is based mostly on track-sources from manabu supplemented by sal-ocin. both artists’ aural characteristics merge perfectly: shinkiro’s cinematic dark soundscapes with a meditative touch blend with empusae’s haunting ritualistic ambience and enthralling melodies. varied rhythmic structures ranging from tribal to minimalistic sequences loom out of the vast, lamenting synth sounds – a kaleidoscope of ethereal atmospheres, both enthralling and enchanting. in sal-ocin’s words, the term ‘organic’ fits perfectly concerning the result of this collaborative work. two artistic minds fused into one, creating a movie without visuals or dialogue. organic.aural.ornaments is waiting for you to step through the frame and into an imagined world, and we highly recommend taking the chance. Released on ant-zen and available February 24th, 2011.

philipp münch has worked as an active musician since the beginning of the 90s and has formed countless projects covering all facets of electronic music like ars moriendi, the incredible three, monokrom and synapscape. during the last two years he has recorded the first album to be released under his full name: into the absurd. the sound design shown here certainly contains repetition, but intelligent and well thought out repetition. a masterful demonstration of minimalism and animalism initially designed to rethink the boundaries of popular music and influenced by pioneering groups of the british industrial music scene in the mid 70’s, such as throbbing gristle, cabaret voltaire and clock dva. these artists were the genesis of the sound that legions of followers would mutate in a myriad of directions into genres that you know and love. pulsing drones, dark ambient soundscapes, analog style drum machines, hard dark synth lines and monotonous bass loops distorted to the point where it borders on harsh noise. these sounds merge together with treated voices and samples. occasional distortion gives the music a rough edge, but elements of beauty are also expressed within the landscape philipp paints. this album will take you to amazing places. play it in the dark, or set your analog television between channels and watch the static while listening. Released on ant-zen and available February 24th, 2011.

a year and a half after ‘all my best intentions’, don hill presents his new work ‘powerless’ on hymen records. this album became deeply personal because it was written during a difficult time for don and his family. ‘powerless’ is a musical document of this period, the feelings of powerlessness and continual surrendering to find a strength beyond ones self. this is a story of love, death and resurrection. for the realization of this opus don received creative support on each track. brett smith (caul), brian grover (khadag blue), candle nine, access to arasaka, james church (lucidstatic), steve hall (veil of secrecy), tony young (autoclav1.1), jan carleklev (parca pace / sanctum), and tapage loaned their considerable talents to help tell the story of the vigil don kept as his family and sons struggled to find meaning in the midst of sadness and uncertainty. melancholy and introspection are audible on this album, yet there is no despair, but rather hope. deep idm textures alternate with ambient soundscapes and magnificent synth chords. complex beats highlight the well-placed electronic structures enriched with piano and guitars. once again millipede effortlessly moves between the boundaries of dark ambient and intelligent dance music. Released on Hymen and available February 24th, 2011.

when jérôme chassagnard began creation of his second solo album, his intentions were to create the expression of a science-fiction scenario set in the not-too-distant future through the medium of sound, beyond any ‘space opera’ like ambitions. the time from underneath is influenced by movies like ‘gattaca’, imaginary futuristic urban environments and time travel – all of which are favorite topics often used by such luminaries as ray bradbury and stanley kubrick who are some of jérôme’s main influences. this album showcases jérôme’s ability to transform these creative inputs into music. focusing on electronica, darker ambient and intelligent dance music, he uses these styles without losing his own musical fingerprint and blends them into one seamless and effortlessly soaring whole. the time from underneath is an amalgam of quiet, dreamy atmospheres, at times supported by an energetic play of rectilinear downtempo grooves and laid-back emotional textures with melancholic keyboard chords taking the listener to places which do not yet exist. from time to time a glimpse of darkness and slight melancholic sadness hides behind the mirror of technology, accentuated by sporadic voice samples and field recordings. a deep, atmospheric album recommended to all of those that seek a pleasant listening experience by stepping into the possible world of tomorrow. Released on Hymen and available February 24th, 2011.

***** new from ARTOFFACT RECORDS!



After 2008’s zany “Meanwhile, Back in the Jungle”, Massiv in Mensch pull no punches on their sixth studio album, the aptly titled “Niemand weiss, was die Zukunft bringt” (Nobody Knows What the Future Will Bring). The album opens with an intro featuring the unmistakable voice of German actor Reiner Schoene (notable as the German voice-over voice of Darth Vader, as well as roles in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Babylon 5, and more). Schoene went into the recording studio especially for this release, so its a real treat for cult movie buffs. Also making an appearance is, adding a synthpop vibe and subtle harmonies to Massiv in Mensch’s killer sound. The album features a cover of the cult techno hit Die Kybernauten (recently back in the spotlight on a re-issue on German label Infacted) as well as a guest appearance from Kontrast vocalist Nebelgeist. Massiv in Mensch deliver 14 tracks of techno-inspired dance music without ever missing a beat! Released on Artoffact and available December 7th, 2010.
