The talented & secretive Miami-based producer named ARNOLD STEINER [aka AS1] is back with a new project on his own electro label Transient Force. The « Songs for Venus » album is a concept-album built around the different type of NEBULAS displayed into the galaxy. Indeed, each title track refers to a specific interstellar cloud of dust. In accordance to that topic, the « Songs for Venus » album highlights a large diversity of well-produced electronic sounds & melodies such as : Ambient, Drone, Electro, Dark beats and of course Electro Bass music. On that project, you will find back the classic AS1’s signature and also some new interesting directions via his experimental ambient tunes. The album-concept is as well catchy as solid and has a no non-sense in its entire listenning. Therefore if like us, you think SCI-FI electro music is currently too focused on Robotic sounds and not enough on Galactic music you will really enjoy this awesome album, the pure spacey electro vision is inside. Highly Recommended!

GALAXIAN – Dosing the population (Clip)
The craziest producer GALAXIAN is back for our pure pleasure with a new E.P entiled ‘Vanguard’ released this summer during the UK riots… The Glasgow based producer is quite underrated however he’s probably the most unique artist of this new decade from the straight electro scene. Forget all the classic ageing sound patterns and forget also his latest great releases; GALAXIAN is still searching to explore some new depth electronic dimensions never discovered before as much as possible. The 4 tracks of this E.P released on NAPALM ENNEMA RECORDS are committed, noisy, dystopian, destructured and of course trippy. The production isn’t too cleaned in order to keep the dynamic of the roughly brainstorm. The GALAXIAN force is still to made his own shit according to his own rebel thoughts with no compromise, …none compromise! With the “Vanguard” E.P he follows the “desintegration of the social fabric” that he started for his debut album. To get this side, a submersion into his live sets are recommended because that’s the best place where his sounds make perfect sense.
The GALAXIAN’s original signature will probably make him the underground electronic producer that you will easily remind in the next years between all the “empty” producers cloning the pioneers… Please give all your attention to the “Vanguard” E.P and all the upcoming releases of this talented producer. Highly Recommended!
and now a break with “CHIC-A-GO-GO” Show starring… :

The Belgium based producer MAGIKBITUM has just released his debut length album on TRANSIENT FORCE. This project is not a boring compilation of tracks but rather a real album written like a SCI-FI movie script with a beginning and a mysterious end. The synopsis could be introduced like this : you are invited to lift off from a planet in order to lead an enigmatic mission, the trip is pretty peaceful but suddenly an error system happens disturbing the control of the starship and provoking a pure dose of stress (to not say of bass)… The “Cockpit Viewscreen” features 12 tracks including 1 remix by Micro.Control.Unit and also 2 skits which change the processus of the mission as well as the mood of the music. By this way, MAGIKBITUM explores the characteristics of different type of electronic music (ambient, electro, electro bass) to play with our feelings. So, If you are ready to fail into the void of space, close your eyes and let’s play this great album, may be you will see also some aliens…

Now exactly 12 months later, “ELEKTRO DOMESTICOS 3” is out, built on the same processus : a sweet cover for a great triple vinyl, a carbon double CD and a generous digital pack (43 tracks). At this occasion, the 3rd issue features also the support and tunes of 5 international artists : SCAPE ONE [Uk], ZERKALO [∞], MR. VELCRO FASTENER [Fi], AS1 [Us], DYNAMIK BASS SYSTEM [Ge].
