Celldweller - End of an Empire (Chapter 03 Dreams) (2015)

Celldweller - End of an Empire (Chapter 03 Dreams) (2015) Klayton is back again and we’ve got the third installment of his quite ambitious project, “End of an Empire”.
Maybe I’m tired, maybe I’m getting too old for this EDM scene, don’t know, but Celldweller lost me lately, the previous Chapter 02 did not left any marks on me, although it was a top Celldweller production. His other project, “Transmissions vol. 01” was a nice surprise, Klayton explored the limitless spaces and possibilities of analog synthesizers, but somehow didn’t really touched me. Too much, too fast…too many releases. Maybe I’m old-fashioned and I still believe in the value of an album, a solid release, eventually on vinyl. F_ck digital!
I think in this digital era it’s getting harder to reach out to the people, the time feels shorter and our brain can’t absorb all the information anymore. Or maybe it’s just me.
But now, Celldweller delivered the wickedest track in years and one of the best electro-industrial anthems of the decade!!
“Good L_ck (Yo_’re F_cked)” it’s the best song Klayton have written and performed in years and it can be considered an excellent radiography of the times we’re living! Read more Celldweller – End of an Empire (Chapter 03 Dreams) (2015)

The Prodigy – The Day Is My Enemy (2015)

The Prodigy - The Day Is My Enemy (2015)

The Prodigy - The Day Is My Enemy (2015) There are a couple of albums expected to be released this year (2015) I am anxious to listen to. One of them it’s the upcoming Agnostic Front album, the upcoming Limp Bizkit album, the debut album of Black Futures (ex-Subsource) and not at least the 6th The Prodigy album.
The Prodigy promised “violent sound” and a brand new level of sonic aggression. And well, have listen the whole album now for a couple of days and the sound it’s definitively there.
I’m still not sure if there are real songs under the massive sound and if The Prodigy have added anything new to their already fat repertoire.
“The Day Is My Enemy” sound almost exactly as “Invaders Must Die” back in 2009, the structure of the album and the structure of the songs it’s quite similar, but the songs are not that good and memorable. While I still can sing almost each song from the previous album purely from memory, after a couple of days of listening to “The Day Is My Enemy” the only thing which still ringing in my ears it’s “Nasty, nasty!” and that’s not really that good, but it’s more something quite compulsive. Only “Invisible Sun” it’s more stickier, but less radio friendly. Read more The Prodigy – The Day Is My Enemy (2015)

dNeau & mSelv – Junior Spirit (2014)

dNeau & mSelc - Junior Spirit (2014)

dNeau & mSelc - Junior Spirit (2014) A little bit of this, a little bit of that. Music with roots back to the 70’s and 80’s, a wide and vivid space where disco meet psychedelic flavours and funk collide violently into acid pop. Grooves and feelings are drifting into the unknown in a quite disturbing after-hour trip. You take off on the wings of the sound, but you don’t know where you will landing. If you close your eyes and turn up the volume, you can fly. Or just simply you will falling up.
My personal favorites are the Bowie-feels-like “Chinoise” and the hypnotic title track, but there is a piece of cake for everybody who’s willing to listen!
Buy and support independent artists!! Read more dNeau & mSelv – Junior Spirit (2014)

Celldweller Announces New Album: End of An Empire

Celldweller New Album End of an Empire

Celldweller New Album End of an Empire Personifying the sound of the iPod generation, he creates a hybrid fusion of digital and organic elements: intricately designed soundscapes constructed from Dubstep, Drum & Bass and Electro, woven together with aggressive Rock/Metal and Orchestral elements. Celldweller ignores genre boundaries and creates a pioneering vision of the future of electronic music.
Celldweller has just announced his new artist album, “End of an Empire” along with a :30 trailer featuring a vocal teaser of the title track. Klayton (Celldweller) has set a September 16, 2014 release date for ‘Chapter 01: Time’ featuring 5 new original tracks along with remixes from Breathe Carolina, Comaduster, KJ Sawka and OCTiV. You can pre-order the album now from FiXT & iTunes.
Featuring monolithic vocal tracks of epic scope, this release highlights Klayton’s unique fusion of infectious electronic music with aggressive rock & roll the way only Celldweller can – by blurring the lines between organic and synthetic. The title track “End of an Empire” takes listeners on a 7.5 minute dichotic journey of metal-infused drum & bass blasts, and a contrasting mix of lush vocal hooks and aggressive screams. “Lost in Time” clocks in with another 7 minutes of vocoded vocals, driving guitar riffs and pulsing ethereal synths, concluding with the fading lyric “this feeling will never die.” Read more Celldweller Announces New Album: End of An Empire

No Sugga’

Brushvox - No Sugga'

Brushvox - No Sugga' Sugar is the generalized name for sweet, short-chain, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food. They are carbohydrates, composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. There are various types of sugar derived from different sources. Simple sugars are called monosaccharides and include glucose – also known as dextrose, fructose and galactose. The table or granulated sugar most customarily used as food is sucrose, a disaccharide. In the body, sucrose hydrolyses into fructose and glucose. Other disaccharides include maltose and lactose.
Sugars are found in the tissues of most plants, but are only present in sufficient concentrations for efficient extraction in sugarcane and sugar beet. Sugarcane is any of several species of giant grass in the genus Saccharum that have been cultivated in tropical climates in South Asia and Southeast Asia since ancient times.
The world produced about 168 million tonnes of sugar in 2011. The average person consumes Read more No Sugga’

Skip the Use – Little Armageddon (2014)

Skip the Use – Little Armageddon (2014)

Skip the Use – Little Armageddon (2014) While I’m drowning in a sea of absolutely boring music day after day, this pretty British sounding French band made my day and Monday. It’s a cool mixture of reggae, funk, punk-rock and accidentally some electronica. Smooth, groovy and nicely done. And genuine in a world of fake and plastic. Simply it feels right. Maybe it’s not revolutionary, it will not turn your world (and pity life) upside down, but it will keep you going. And although by default I would reject any mixture of punk with pop, this “Little Armageddon” sounds more convincing then most of the modern American self-declared punk products.
Mat Bastard (vocals), Yan Stefani (guitar), Jay Gimenez (bass), Lio Raepsaet (keyboards) and Manamax Catteloin (drums) at their third album just simply nailed it. Read more Skip the Use – Little Armageddon (2014)

So he sent messengers, saying to them, “Go and consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron, to see if I will recover from this injury. But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, “Go up and meet the messengers of the king of Samaria and ask them, ‘Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are going off to consult Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron?’

From Gold by Novo Amor [State of Analog Anarchy RMX]

Happy New Year 2014

Novo Amor is an alternative, Indie folk artist from the UK. He created a beautiful, touching song. I get a little bit carried away by my new Alesis QX 61 and some old synthesizer VSTs. I only can hope I didn’t ruined it. For good. I actually tracked over 30 synth tracks, but one by one I sort them out and throw them out. Still, this is a little bit Read more From Gold by Novo Amor [State of Analog Anarchy RMX]
