German duo Session Victim, aka Hauke Freer and Matthias Reiling, are gearing up for the release of their fourth studio album “Needledrop”, the follow-up to 2017’s “Listen To Your Heart”, on March 6th via Night Time Stories, the London based sistesr label to the coveted LateNightTales. The release marks a notable shift towards the downtempo dynamic of fellow masters of the LP format, such as Nightmares on Wax and DJ Shadow, artists that have played a strong influence in Session Victim’s varied output over the last decade.

Before its release, Session Victim have shared the video for the record’s second single “The Pain”, which incorporates electronic touches whilst skillfully holding intact a chugging groove, bringing listeners on a hypnotic journey complimented by an echoed soothing vocal sample. In their own words: “‘The Pain’, which we wrote at Hauke’s place in Berlin, was one of the last tracks on the album to come together. Right from the start this one had a different vibe that we felt was an essential piece to the overall record, channelling something more serious and urgent but ultimately uplifting”.

Directed by Peter Malla, the accompanying video offers a visual representation for the context of the track. Delivering an intimate and cinematic piece shot across London containing an ever-pressing theme and sense of perseverance, optimism and gaining strength through adversity and pain.

LA duo Classixx are back with a superb rework of “Silly Loves Songs” by Wings, just in time for Valentine’s Day! In their own words: “We made a rework of Wings’ “Silly Love Songs” from an early piano demo of the song that our friend Chris Byrne sent me. It felt like a good idea to put it up around Valentine’s Day! Paul wrote the song as a response to critics claiming that he predominately wrote “silly love songs” and “sentimental slush” with “disco overtones”. The song was a perfect comeback and Paul indulged in making music that he loved adding the refrain “What’s Wrong With That?.

Digger of WordAndSound DE; thanks to Martin Müller (youAndme/Rotary Cocktail/Ornaments). From 2016 the L.O.R. tracks were remixed by an international team including the Italian electro living legend Alexander Robotnick. From 1983’s “Problèmes D’ Amour” till now, Maurizio Dami’s electrodisco anthems have shook down dancefloors all over the world and have inspired and influenced the so-called modern producers. In the hearts and minds of countless dancers over the years, Alexander Robotnick is the sound of European electronic music in the 1980s.

Today, we are psyched to premiere Alexander Robotnick’s killer remix of “Kind Of Intrigue”. The track creates a one of a kind gloomy robotic atmosphere with an impressive wide range of top synths, which is just Robotnick doing his magic once again. He merges arpeggiated electro bass lines with a vast variety of vintage 70’s sounds, while vocal samples make their appearance and the track sets you on a trail of a truly “intriguing” musical discovery.

In his eight years as an artist/producer — an output he self-describes as “file under 12”, intentionally laconic — Berlin-by-way-of-Melbourne Bell Towers has wriggled on various shades of house, 80s- influence pop and sample disco. No two of his 8 singles sound the same, but there’s a long-play LP on the way that’ll make these styles stick like your entry stamp to your wrist on a Monday morning.

One of the most important things in music is personality. It’s that magical moment when you listen to a track and you know who the creator is; you sense who’s behind all these sounds. And that is among others Red Axes’ distinctive characteristic. And we couldn’t possibly expect less from our favorite label Dark Entries that crosses the finishing line of 2019 with a sublime release. A 4-track EP called “Voom” by the mighty Red Axes is on its way and we are more than excited. Straight from Tel Aviv the prolific production duo of Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi are loyal to their signature sound, whilst breathing –their one of a kind – fresh air to the electronic music scene. We all admire their weird sonic artefacts mixing post-punk, new-wave, Italo-disco, acid, EBM, which lead you directly to the dance floor. Their music is a fantastic blend of inspired moods.

Today, we’re psyched to premiere the EP’s last track, the 10-minute ecstatic anthem “Prblems”. The tune shouts out “Red Axes are here”. The track “Prblems” is tireless and it grows darker and more powerful as the minutes pass by. Militant drums, battered electronics and lovingly drowned traditional instruments hypnotically pulse and reverberate. It’s the perfect late-night or early-morning DJ’s selection that creates one of the most memorable moments of your time out. You close your eyes cause you feel to, you sense the tracks’ bewitching vibe and rhythm and you have a majestic stellar ride. Blast it above!

The “Voom” EP drops on December 6th via Dark Entries. Pre-order here.
