The 2nd EP of the german Ex-Industrial rock outfit reaching for a more organic & flowing sound.
The precision of progressive rock, the stoicism of industrial unexpectedly combined with the raw “fuck you” attitude of punk topped off with a lyrical deepness and purity, one has to search for at this day and age, making utopia:banished on the one hand hard to describe but on the other hand the reason they stand out of the uniformity of bands found in those genres today.&nb
This debut is a thrill ride across the shores of Breakcore, Dubstep and freeform music.
DaFake Panda is a producer, multi-instrumentalist, sound-designer and free-jazz drummer from Paris, France. He declares his style to be an experimental, dadaistic and glitchy approach to the conventionally accepted music-genres such as dubstep and breakcore.
His debut "SOCIOPATH" lures you in with some beautifully calm melodies. Just to hit you in the face with a baseball bat when you least expect it.
Unafraid to leave the boundaries of his genre he samples everything he gets his hands on. During your listening session you keep on trying to put your finger on what kind of instrument he is currently using and as soon as you think you have it, it disappears somewhere between break core drums and a stomach wrangling low-frequency bass. This conglomerate of audio fragments is enriched by vocals, pleasant guitar riffs and melodies that remind you of scraps of forgotten memories. Imagine standing in a gloomy and eerie cellar hearing someone play old chansons through a gramophone a couple of stories up.
The music of dafake panda presents itself as an audio-chemical solution with a thick and dark texture. An earcandy for fans of musicians like Igorrr, Broken Note and everyone who's brave enough to add a fresh attempt to a genre at the risk repeating itself.
It's never easy to be the bearer of bad news...
But after almost a dozen years, four great albums and uncountable live shows our good friends of Guns of Brixton have decided to go seperate ways.
Their latest record "Inlandsis" was nothing less than a landmark for us as a label and we're very proud that we had the ability to walk a few steps on their way at their side.
But before Guns of Brixton wave "Good bye" they'll play a couple of farewell shows. The last time to catch them as the furious live band they are.
04th of October - Saumur
05th of October - Bordeaux
12th of October - L'Aigle
All the best to you guys & thank you for your unspeakable talent & enthusiasm.
The notorious what-do-you-call-it band UTOPIA:BANISHED gives the one track from their upcoming EP "That's why everything burns" to the public via soundcloud, free to hear, judge, download and spread.
We're taking a little break for summer...
The office will be closed until August 22. All incoming orders will be shipped afterwards. Enjoy your summer, we'll be back with a vengeance and two brandnew records.
The french producer / multi-instrumentalist DaFakePanda joins the Aentitainment rooster.
His album "Sociopath" will rattle the electronic scene in early September.
Every little dime is spent on lotion, shorts & cold drinks...
We know that because we love you. But you can't cruise the Westside without a decent soundtrack. So here's the conclusion.
Heat up the summer with some broken tunes & save some bucks. Our 2013 summer stock cleaner might have something for you...
A quick shot right into the heart of summer.Seven musicians laid their hands on the bass laden creations of [ B O L T ], giving their own twist to the tunes which more than just once turns out as a surprise...
You'll find yourself questioning "Damn! Where's dem drone?" listening to "Reassembled".
Let's take a closer look at the variations we have here:
The mexican beatmaker PECHUGA DE POLLODIABOLO heads for an almost classical attempt building the track up by adding more & more layers of melodies on top of each other and ending somewhere in elektric freejazz chamber music.
Producer & sounddesigner EWALDT takes glitches & Sqaurepusher-like percussions to underlay his crystaline production.
Wellknown composer PETRELS turns the material to something that is simply innitially his own. Is there some original material used? He swears it is...
The rework of DAMSCRAY is dominated by heavy beats, exotic percussions & metal guitar (!) interruptions. A welcome break.
TISSIKA stays closer to the original laying the focus of his work on actually re-mixing / re-arranging the song into a more eerie direction.
ASMO graps the atmosphere to create a pitch-black / no-hope-left, dubby ending to this record.
So where's the drone? It's in the darkness of the attic...
Pechuga de Pollodiabolo puts his hands on [ B O L T ]...
The glorious result will open the upcoming remix album "REASSAMBLED".
Listen / Download here:
The barren but warm soundscapes floating out of the cuts of this record embracing the listener gently but firm.
The tracks, though swaying in waves of delay & reverb can't and won't shake off a certain ruffness that provide an immediate feel, allowing entrance.
Biblo keeps you close. Very close...
This record (either on vinyl or as download) coms to be the new best friend of your headphones.

[BOLT], our very own rising stars on the international drone-firmament and Denovalis' PETRELS come together on shiny, black vinyl with one exclusive track each. Wrapped in a fullcolored sleeve this Split has a duration of more than 20 minutes what should have been expected as you are familiar with the tunes by these artists.
[BOLT] sneak in gently, swaying in expansive, melancholic ambiences before the distortion rolls in...
PETRELS on the other hand take all the aural space needed by assault delivering one of the densiest compositions you may have heard in a long time.
