V/A – DeepEnd! Chapter 2 (PDV Records / DeepEnd!)

Once again, prolific Croatian independent label PDV Records teamed up with Slovenian DeepEnd Movement to deliver another dosage of contemporary electronic music. This time, Chapter 2 presents four artists, so this compilation resembles more of a four-way split release than an actual compilation album. Nevertheless, if we put those unimportant aspects aside and place involved… Read More V/A – DeepEnd! Chapter 2 (PDV Records / DeepEnd!)

Plazmatick – Maziš Mi Se / Cuddly, Cuddly Deluxe DLP (PDV Records)

We recently wrote an article about Hrđava Vremena/Rusty Times by Plazmatick, a Croatian electronic music act entirely operated by Marko Mihalinec. Alongside his interest in urban tribalism and culture, his characteristic artistry encompasses both audio and visual form.

Night Slaves – II CS (Swimming Faith Records)

Night Slaves moved forward with this particular material. It’s a proper continuation of their debut cassette EP that contains some remarkable evolvements towards darkwave aesthetics. This material represents their second EP recording that pushed things to a bit more dynamic sound, decorated with loads of notable improvements. Unlike their debut, this one has lost that… Read More Night Slaves – II CS (Swimming Faith Records)

Royal Hungarian Noisemakers – Le Roi Est Mort CD (Unsigned Records)

Royal Hungarian Noisemakers emanate from Budapest, Hungary. I was fortunate enough to share the stage with this live act, but also to experience their live performances a couple of times. Whoever experienced their live performance, left with the impression there’s a lot more going on, mainly because of the presence of both analog and digital… Read More Royal Hungarian Noisemakers – Le Roi Est Mort CD (Unsigned Records)
