Mechatronic – Dreams | Review by Side-Line magazine

This Swedish male-female duo released a debut album in 2003, which didn’t get in the collective mind. Picked up by EK Product the band strikes back with 9 new songs and 2 remixes. The main influences of Mechatronic clearly are synth-pop and EBM-minded. There’s a well-crafted balance between their influences, the harder songs moving into…

Endless Shame – Elevator | Review by Vox Empirea

The Endless Shame were born in the 90’s in Kristianstad, Sweden, following the technologic music trend that raged on the European alternative scene: the line-up consists of three elements: Mika Rossi (sounds/live keys/live percussions), Mattias Levin (Vox/guitar) and Anders Olsson (keys / backing vox). The beginnings of the band were directed essentially to the research…

After their comeback on the EP “My Needs” released in 2012 on EK Product we now welcome the new full length album from Spektralized. The album features 10 new songs plus 2 remixes by Sebastian Komor.

Nine Seconds

Nine Seconds are ex-Sleepwalk-singer Oliver Spring and the No Comment founders Rene Ebner and Thomas Kowa. The synergy between these protagonists generates high-graded electro/synthpop emissions that found their structures on the enthralling and obscure vitality created by the variable drum-programming scans and poisonous vocals: the techno-sound that comes out from the equipment surpasses each stop…

Noise Trade Company – Reformation | Review by Sounds Behind the Corner

Pubblicato a fine 2012, Reformation riconferma il ritorno dell’ormai rodatissimo duo del veterano Gianluca Becuzzi e dell’ormai sempre più intraprendente Elena De Angeli, con la piacevolissima aggiunta all’organico, di Fabrizio Biscontri a chitarre e bassi. Dopo il dinamitardo “Post Post Post”, con la sua irriverenza post-punk, con le sue ritmiche post-rave, con la sua attitudine…

Spektralized is back with a brand spankin’ new album called In Between The Opposite. It is signed under the popular Italian industrial label EK Product. This is the same label as well known artists (Vomito Negro, Impakt! and one of my favorites, Darkmen.). In Between The Opposite, is making quite a splash already. In just…

Mechatronic – Dreams | Review by ElektroSkull mag.

Bygger en vacker helhet De har tagit god tid på sig, minst sagt. Men efter mycket om och men (och ett skivkontrakt via det hårdsatsande italienska skivbolaget EKProducts nya dotterlabel Space Race Records), så återvänder nu Uppsaladuon Mechatronic, som består av Wilhelm Äretun och Emma Hortlund, med bandets andra album “Dreams”. Detta nästan tio år…

Halo Effect – Recoding | Review by Shiver webzine

L’ascolto di “Heaven”, primo singolo estratto da Delta Machine, l’album di prossima uscita dei Depeche Mode,  vi ha spiazzato con la sua deriva blues? Rimpiangete l’elettronica anni ’80 pre – Songs of Faith and Devotion? Se la risposta ad entrambe le domande è affermativa, Recoding, lavoro degli Halo Effect uscito tre mesi fa, è l’album…

Klonavenus – KlonaWelt | Review by Darkroom Magazine

Attivi con la medesima line-up a due (Paolo Chemnitz alla voce e Saffio alle musiche) sin dalla genesi nel 2005, i romani Klonavenus giungono al sospirato debutto ufficiale su CD dopo cinque uscite nell’ambito dei CDr autoprodotti (eccezion fatta per “Metropolights”, pubblicato nel medesimo formato ma supportato dalla Fossil Dungeon), grazie all’interesse dell’attivissima connazionale EK…

Halo Effect – Recoding | Review by Peek-a-Boo magazine

You can feel it right from the start. We’re taking off for a luxurious flight to Synthpop/EBM heaven. “Cold Front”, the fierce and fiery “Recoding _”-kickoff, promises sixty beat infested minutes of pure Fun & Future. “Burning Chrome” continues in strict EBM-tempo, marching through cyber reality with the greatest of ease. Time for the BIG…

Halo Effect – Recoding | Review by Synth.nu

Italienska Halo Effect bildades redan 2001, men det är först nu när kvartetten från Rom släpper sitt tredje album – Recoding – som jag får upp ögonen på dem. Recoding innehåller fjorton spår synthpop/bodypop som går lite i samma anda som And One och De/Vision. I dagens läge är det kanske inte så svårt att…

MonsterGod – Resurrected | Review by Synth.nu

Den polska duon bestående av Schnitter och Smola är aktuella med nytt album – Resurrected. Ett album bestående av tolv låtar plus fyra bonus spår. Duons musik kan beskrivas som en blandning av industri, EBM och goth i mestadels medelfart. I några låtar har duon valt att ta in gitarr för att lägga till en…

Halo Effect – Recoding | Review by Onda Rock

La musica EBM ha un suo preciso circuito musicale che nutre cultori a livello internazionale con nomi di grido che magari non saranno noti ai più, ma che nello stesso tempo, dal vivo, registrano numerosi sold-out. I casi più eclatanti sono quelli di And One, VNV Nation e Covenant, band che sono di sicuro tra…

Mechatronic was formed 2002 in the city of Uppsala, Sweden. The members are Wilhelm Äretun (singing and programming) and Emma Hortlund (lyrics and synthesizers).

Spektralized launch “In Between the Opposite”

Standard composition at the highest levels, immediately capturing melodies and a strong dose of danceability are the driving forces of this album. “In Between The Opposite”, the fourth one of a discography qualitatively in continuing ascent as manifestation of a creative talent that knows no limits. The electropopish atmospheres built by the Norwegian Spektralized speaks…

Halo Effect – Recoding | Review by Medienkonverter

Bislang war Italien nicht dafür bekannt, die elektronische Musikszene mit krass-geilen Neuveröffentlichungen im Bereich des EBM-Synthpop-Genres zu beglücken. Doch seitdem das Label EK Produkt in schöner Regelmäßigkeit sowohl den einheimischen „musicista“, als auch internationalen Acts durch aufwendige Werbeaktivitäten nachdrücklichen Schwung verleiht, kommen europäische Club-DJs nicht mehr um talentierte EK-Eigengewächse wie „Impakt!“, „Klonavenus“ und nicht zuletzt…

Halo Effect – Recoding | Review by ElektroSkull

En rymddoftande mix av olika stilar Italienska Halo Effect bildades 2001 och efter två tidigar demo-EP’s – “Past Continuous” och “Days of Silence” debuterade man på egen hand med EP’n “Schwarz” under 2006. Efter detta  plockades man upp av det  vitryska (digitala)skivbolaget Haze, där man två år senare (2008) gjorde sin albumdebut med “New Romantic…

Endless Shame – Elevator | Review by Intravenous magazine

Initially, the fourth album by synthpop Swedes Endless Shame sounds like a futuristic Pet Shop Boys. From the softly sung lyrics to the chorused backing vocals and keyboard punctuation Elevator is Tennant and Lowe in Scandinavian form. After ‘Hear Me Now’ (practically an electro homage to the 80s duo) the trio from Sweden make more…

Halo Effect is an Italian combo that mainly released EP’s and their 2nd full length on Ionium Records. “Recoding” is their 3rd album for which they’ve released on the Italian electro label EK Product.I have to admit that I’m not familiar with Halo Effect, which sounds clearly inspired by the body-pop style of And One.…

Donamorte

The Donamorte project (Italy) came into being in 2011 from an idea by Armando “Donamorte” Ammerata, (vocalist) along with the brilliant collaboration of Garmo on programming and Kaos K on guitars.

2nd Civilization

2nd Civilization started off in the late 80’s as a hobby project: a couple of guys jamming together on their first drum computers and synthesizers. Influenced by Kraftwerk, DAF, Front 242 and others, some demo tapes were released, to great (local) critical acclaim. In 1991, a full album was recorded in a professional 32-track studio.…
