New album by Emil Abramyan
'Movements' is out since September 7th!
Building on the already incredible collection of music so far released on Francis Harris’ Kingdoms imprint, Emil Abramyan returns with the stunning 'Movement' album.
Abramyan is a Brooklyn based composer, musician, and producer, whose work traverses various styles and disciplines.
In this release Emil shares his unique perspective by bringing together his conservatory training as a cellist and his love of electronic music and sound design. Having played the cello on every Francis Harris album, Abramyan now expands his repertoire by playing every instrument, including cello, piano, and electronics.
Out Soon: 15 music poems by Mona Mur and Miron Zownir!
'Those Days Are Over' is undoubtedly one of the most unusual and impressive cross-media collaborations between two Berlin artists this summer!
Both are like-minded individuals with passion and untamed creativity, who sooner or later seemingly had to find each other and are now releasing a new Audio-CD.
Mona Mur, whose musical career began in the early 1980s with her New Wave punk band Mona Mur & The Tenants (with Gode, Mark Chung, FM Einheit and Alexander Hacke), created an absorbing, mysterious soundscape with the setting of Miron Zownir's English-language poems, absorbing the idiosyncratic expressiveness of the poet with her mystic voice and musical compositions full of powerful melancholy and provocative wildness. (...)
Mona Mur transforms 15 poems by photographer, writer and filmmaker Miron Zownir, which Stanley Kubrik's scriptwriter Terry Southern has long ago nicknamed "Poet of Radical Photography", into deeply disturbing "Poetronica" revealing a cynical “outsider” perspective onto the many superficial surfaces of our lifes ...” (Nico Anfuso, Berlin 2018)
The CD will be exclusivley available for presale at the upcoming live events with Mona Mur.
New Borusiade EP is out!
'Their Specters' was released August 10th through Ostgut Ton's Unterton sub-label.
'Their Specters' will mark Miruna Boruzescu's debut on Unterton, and we're told the Romanian producer - whose style recalls new wave, industrial, EBM and techno sounds - had in mind "themes of ecological and human self-destruction" when composing its four tracks.
Boruzescu released her debut album, 'A Body', through Cómeme earlier this year. Besides Matias Aguayo's label, she's notched appearances on labels including Correspondant, Cititrax and Dark Entries over the past couple years.(words: Brian Kolada/ Resident Advisor)

New Patrick Siegfried Zimmer release announced!
'Memories I–X' will be out September 28th.
The video for the 1st single 'Eternity' premiered on Spex - Magazin für Popkultur today!
'Memories I–X' is the first part of a musical decalogy by universal dilettante Patrick Siegfried Zimmer. Scheduled to be released successively over the course of 30 years, ten journal entries every three years. Such is the artist's plan, »provided I'll live to be at least 70 years old and both inspiration and the will to live stay with me.« At which point the opus can always be extended.
Patrick Siegfried Zimmer first hit the scene in 2003 when he released 'Expose Yourself To Lower Education' under the finn. moniker. The album was met with instant international success. In 2008, he toured Europe with Ólafur Arnalds, one year later he took the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival's stage alongside Stephan Eicher (of Grauzone fame and one of the most renowned chansonniers in French language) and book author Philippe Djian (Betty Blue), and he has played multiple shows with José Gonzales.
»I–X I got closer than ever to making the album I've always wanted to record«, says Patrick Siegfried Zimmer. »I didn't approach the album as a musician, the process actually was like writing a proper diary in which I attempted to process heartbreak, my anxieties and my joy, to make them tangible for myself.«
Push communications releases mixes of Marmion's 'Schöneberg'
The iconic rave classic has been reworked by Tim Engelhardt, 2Raumwohung and Der Dritte Raum!
It’s been a while since Marmion’s 'Schöneberg' has been remixed by DJ Hell, Abe Duque, Donnacha Costello, Chaim, Roberto Rodriguez and Sebastian Krieg & Strobe in 2010. 8 years later, it’s about time for some new interpretations.
In March, Push Communications alreday released Tim Engelhardt Remix of the timeless tune Mijk van Dijk and Marcos López produced back in 1993.
Now, part 2 of the remix series is scheduled for August 3rd which pulls together two versions from equally iconic German rave royalty - 2raumwohnung and Der Dritte Raum.
And there's still more to come... stay tuned!
Also check Mijk van Dijk's remix of 2raumwohnung's '1993' from their 'Nacht & Tag' Album.
upcoming release by Alexander Hacke and David Eugene Edwards
'Risha' will be out June 22nd via Glitterhouse!
David Eugene Edwards and Alexander Hacke will release their first collaboration album entitled Risha.
Both know each other for ages. They have a connection since the early days of 16 Horsepower and collaborated on the reunion album 'American Twilight' by Australian Indie Rock outfit Crime & The City Solution (2013). Finally they found the time to record this astonishing piece of an album.
'Risha' - which means 'Feather' in Arabic - cannot be described in traditional terms. This sound is a sweeping tapestry of Americana, Neo-Folk, Industrial, Ambient, Electronic and Arabic Music.
'Risha' will be released June 22nd via Glitterhouse Records followed by extensive touring.
It's coming: Pari San release their debut album 'R.I.P. Identification' in fall
second single 'Lie' will be out June 8th!
On their much-acclaimed 2016 Frozen Time EP (including collaborations with Markus Ganter and Robot Koch as well as a feverish, fascinating music video of Rammstein director Zoran Bihać), Pari San already set a massive exclamation point with tons of style and elegant, modern Pop-Electronica. But their long-awaited debut album R.I.P. Identification will have a much bigger surprise in store.
The painstaking, passionate collaboration with electronic music innovator Markus Popp aka Oval, who has co-produced R.I.P. Identification, has resulted in radically innovative, yet masterfully crafted songs.
Pari San are Iran-born musician Parisa Eskandari and the Berlin-based producer Paul Brenning - together they conjure sensual, urban songscapes between pop and avant-garde.
The special chemistry between Pari and Paul creates sheer, electrifying tension: Iranian flair meets Berlin, oriental mysticism meets western rationality, impulsiveness collides with technical precision. Eskandari's unmistakable vocal style effortlessly dissolves the boundaries between day and dream.
On their tour you will see the premiere of never-before-performed R.I.P. Identification material as part of Pari San's set list: epic, gripping songs, embedded in an engaging live performance. Not to be missed.
