“Much is remarkable with the new EP by Alec Troniq & Gabriel Vitel, even though remarkability seems a pattern applicable to all their work. ‘Mind Doodles’ had not just been their first collaboration, but also one of the biggest hits for Broque, having been streamed and shared on the Web by the millions. There a plenty of good reasons, why the follow-up EP New New World is bound to become a similar milestone. Let’s start with the obvious ones: after having performed under a plethora of project names, this is their first joint release published under Gabriel’s name only, what puts his distinctive vocals even more into the spotlight, even though it had been the storytelling epicenter and trademark ingredient ever since. Similarly noteworthy is the fact that, Alec and Gabriel connected so well with the Dortmunder Philharmoniker while re-interpreting Dvorak a while ago, that they continued their collaboration, leading up to the New New World EP which features some first joint songs born from this fruitful yet unusual collaboration. These full-bodied songs in particular lift the drama of Vitel’s moving songs onto the big stage and underline the emotional drama present in most of their tracks, only to be gently guided back onto the dancefloor by Tony Casanova’s Remix of ‘Unknown Places’. New New World contains big emotions for both club and concert hall and is a worthy successor of the ‘Mind Mill’ EP. One question remains though: how the two are planning to ever top this one. We are more than curious already.”
“As per yearly tradition, Jan presents an ep with material that did not fit the full-length album from previous year, in this case ‘Jan Pierwszy Starszy’. As with every JS e.p. there are no rules and the diversity of genres is breathtaking. Here we have casio-retro-wave, guitar post rock, noisy guitars overlaying, joyful turkish zurna-pop with broken time signature and an anthem of the priviledged man with a sturdy beat!”
“Lorelei is the debut album from duo Feminine (Giampiero Riggio and Francesco Cipriano).
A wave manifesto against the deeply rooted reverence for the logic of genres.
Lorelei develops on two complementary levels: one archaic and passionate,
troubled by the many contradictions of a land like Sicily and the other,
accurate and bewitching, is a prelude to teutonic Stuttgart.
A countless number of bytes which they shared and exchanged remotely.
This work is romantic and brave at the same time, constantly immersed into a very deep atmosphere, never trite,
fooled by the certainty that there is no dream which cannot be described.”
“After being one of the first released artists in Nulogic Netlabel, Acid Buda returns after the release of his first album with Ruin Records. This time he presents Star, a five tracks EP. Where we can appreciate the fruitful development that his ‘Bizarre Pop’ has carried out since he began experimenting with Casiotones and lysergic melodies. Let yourself go and enjoy the trip!”
“This year La bèl will turn 5 years old and we wanted to celebrate its birthday by publishing a La bèl compilation with all the artists that collaborated with us during these years. The idea is to ask each one of their for a ‘pop’ track, leaving complete freedom to their personal interpretation of this word. We think this would be a nice idea, since hardly any of their works within the ‘pop’ scene. La bèl pop (fifth anniversary compilation) is the final outcome of this experiment.
This compilation is published to coincide with the first Netlabel Day.”
