Talul – Ghost (kunsthandwerk)
Deep House / Electronica / Techno

Talul is one of the Newcomers of the last years and he’s proving that over and over. For example with his new Track „Ghost“ which is now released on Kunsthandwerk. The sound of „Ghost“ is crystal clear, playful and guarantees unstoppable goosebumps. There will be no calm feet if you put in this record at the latest when the mystic break drops into a phenomenal percussion and desperate vocal-shot driven climax. If u close your eyes, you will see the „Ghost“ that Talul has hidden in his awesome piece of art.

Toronto Is Broken  Section Nine (Sub Slayers)
Drum’n’Bass / Electronic

It is with great pleasure we bring to you Section Nine, a futuristic journey through dark textures, switching tempos, complex bass lines and intricate beat programming. This album will change game in the world of Bass music.

Contrast Trio – Zwei (Whyempty Records)


What would a band be without any creative changes? For the album “Zwei”, the band Contrast Trio changed their focus. More than ever it’s about a transparent sound, which consequently orientates towards the energy and directness of pop and rock music.

Pollyester – City of O (Disko B)
Pop / Indie Disco / New Wave

Three years have passed since the release of Pollyester’s debut album „Earthly Powers”. The international press celebrated Pollyester as an exciting mixture of Les Rita Mitsouku, Cosmic and Krautrock, and declared them top notch disco punk newcomers. The new album “City of O” has become a brightly glistening album, yet it emanates tranquillity and sovereignty at the same time. The band sparkles in a fountain of unbound Punk / New Wave / Disco energy: This is where early Talking Heads hang around on a DFA bloc party whilst Tom Tom Club is jamming with Le Tigre in the background.

Callisto – Secret Youth (Svart Records)
Experimental Rock / Hardcore

Since their 2004 debut, True Nature Unfolds, Callisto have sought out new ground in the post-metal genre. Now, Callisto have returned after five years of relatively quiet existence with a new album for Svart Records, entitled Secret Youth. Never wanting to record the same album twice and always eager to experiment, the band members themselves describe the new material as “progressive noise rock” – a contradictory concoction of easier, more straightforward elements in the same melting pot with a youthful, experimental spirit.
