Melodies & Structures 1 / Various
MELODIES & STRUCTURES VOLUME 1 compilation CD Released by 4mg records, March, 2003 Limited edition: 1000 copies Featuring KITTEN MAJESTIQUE Dark wave project from Orebro in Sweden with this great atmospheric track comparable to Morthound or Raison D'Entre of Cold Meat Industry. Avoiding Conversations About It (earplugged version) (3.14) PaPERHOUsE Solo project of Adrian Smith, ex-vocalist and basic member of Click Click, the electronic cult band of the late 80's. A great deal of work created by Click Click never saw the light of day, most of it being too abstract or pseudo commercial for the bands purposes. That music lay untouched for years before it's merits were reassessed for inclusion in the PaPERHOUsE project. Work began in 1989 after a confusing time in Switzerland took the life out of Click Click. The Department Of Polyrhythmic Experimentation (D.O.P.E.) began assembling the contents of the vaults in 1991 and the first recordings, a tape entitled Disintegration, came out in 1994 (Not Enough Memory.) Several more tapes were finished throughout the 90's before Click Click reformed in 97 to produce Shadowblack. Work resumed with PaPERHOUsE shortly thereafter and the CD Bug Sun was finally released in 2000. Sappho followed a year later and new work is on the way. This project is represented with 2 great tracks. The first one Smackhead (10.08) is a calm triphop ambient track and the second one Energy & Fire (6.18) is an eclectic track with some drum'n'bass influence. If you found any merit at all in Click Click's Shadowblack release, Paperhouse will make you feel right at home. CABARET Talented Polish synth-pop band from Warsaw influenced by Depeche Mode and other similar bands. Dawn Mist Glowing (3:15) THE ONLY MICHAEL Solo project of Michael Harding, producer/remixer with an impressing music history. As Resolution, Michael released his 'warm electronics' tracks on the Swim, WMO and Ash International labels. He then formed atmospheric beats band Feeler, releasing 3 singles on DJZ as well as contributing to the Solar Spectrums and Confrontation in Dub compilation albums In a previous life Michael was co-vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and main songwriter in cult independent band 1000 Mexicans. The Only Michael is now a resident DJ at Sundaze in Sheffield and Nottingham. Dream Chamber (5.45) NORTHERN ELECTRIC The sound of Northern Electric (Vaxjo, Sweden) can easily be explained as pure electronic SYNTH music. No more, no less, no confusion! The sound of the 80's is shining through here and there, and you can feel that good old nostalgica feeling coming back once again! This band is not another dusty old copy of Depeche Mode, the sound is much more unique and fresh, and not really being comparable to anything. But if you appreciate old synth pop legends like Hard Corps, Stahlnetz, Keine Ahnung and Boytronic you will hopefully LOVE Northern Electric too! Nevertheless give it a try and you might find yourself discovering something completely new and different! Since somewhere around 1996 Northern Electric have been making music off and on in 3 different studios together with a synthesizer, drum machine and an atari. In The Night (4.37) IMIAFAN Project of Imrich Vegh originally from Slovakia, now living in Canada. In late 2002, he founded 4mg records label and released this compilation CD. ImiAFan is experimenting with samples and cheap keyboards since 1999 and he created a few demo CDRs. It is a real underground music made without any calculations. This compilation contains two interesting remixes of Abuse and Martin Burlas - two great artists from Slovakia. English Lesson (Martin Burlas Mix) (6.05) English Lesson (Abuse remix) (6.26) MARTIN BURLAS Martin Burlas has long baffled and amazed the Slovak music world, as he has switched with alarming dexterity from classical composition to hard techno and back. His last works are mostly based on combination of easy listening of the 60's tradition with electronic minimalism and seems to be rather emotionally soft. Not very expressive means are used in his works. Mr.Burlas has a rich discography of experimental, new wave, electronic and also classical music and made some great works with Ivan Csudai, Bezmocna Hrstka, Sleepy Motion, Dogma, Azachronic, etc. It is great to have his track on this compilation CD. Mutanz (4.30) MACHINEPOP Another one man project from Sweden (Malmo) making analogue pop in the vein of The Normal and Telex. Jesper Odemark is the man behind the scene of Machinepop. He is a big fan and collector of analogue keyboards, vinyl records and ataris. Machinepop keeps blipping. Flicka Av Plexiglas (Vocal Retake Remix) (3.59) ABUSE It is a project of Vlado Durajka. This Slovak electro ambient man released EP Sleepfields on Deadred in the last year with very positive reviews. Recently Abuse made remixes for MIMETIC and The Ecstasy Of St. Theresa. Cloud Poetry (7.19). KRELISYS A girl from Luton (UK) called Kylie Smith making an awesome tribal dark wave music. I found her music by random on IUMAs web site. Fear After Dark (5.18) SINTETIK Brasil EBM influenced electronic music. Ricardo Cassolatto and his first official released track on the compilation CD. Ricardo is also a member of Cybernetic Faces, another brasil eletro project. This track is coming right from Coppa Cabanna in Rio de Janeiro. Good Night! Thanks for Collaboration (3.45)
