Parts in the post, pt. 81
Ashtar DXD's new 12" "Bang Bang Bang Da Moneymachine" has been released as cat.no. 006 of the crypticly named haRT?de.FAKte-imprint recently, a quite avantgarde amalgamation of styles which are to be named as Breakcore and Industrial here, including some Noise- and DarkJungle-flavours as well. Dark and heavy as fuck and even more impressive if performed live as three out of four tracks include vocals of a political nature and that of course adds a punk'ish attitude rarely found these days. But all those being into genres as Experimental or (No) Wave, PostPunk or even the former Ingenious Dilletantes-movement might take a glimpse as well as those tracks might touch your heart due to a bit of LoFi- / DIY-attitude.
The former release of Ashtar DXD, a split release with Noize Punishment, was put out via haRT?de.FAKte as well and is on a much heavier tip. While Noize Punishment fuses the likes of PunkRock and raw, unformatted Breakcore to a certain extend and adds various psyched out samples to this mixture, Ashtar DXD - although they use vocals as well - stick to a straight uncomprominsing Breakcore-attitude and do not cross over to other genres.
ItaloDisco rules ok - now and ever! DJ Overdose recently released the single "Take Me Home" under his Dream Disco-moniker recently on Das Drehmoment and delivers a top notch, up-to-date blueprint of this beloved genre. Sing-a-long chorus, kitsch-loaden synth-sounds and electroid beats are the main ingredients of this uber-hit that perfectly fits in between idols like long gone Hypnosis and more commercial "Hot Girl"-Sabrina. On the flip of this excellent track we find "In Your Eyes" , another nice workout which is remixed by DJ Technician of Bunker-/Clone-fame and Speculator. Defo a must have!
