( ;D --> Pulsating with raw passion and a desire for anthemic melodies, Berlin based Noblesse Oblige have crafted their most polished and unapologetic work to date. New album release 'Affair of the Heart' presents a sophisticated pop opus, destined to unite the ears of dance floor dreamers and bedroom escapists alike.
Powerful male and female harmonies melt over an ocean of warm electronics, voluptuous dance floor beats and euphoric disco arpeggios, as you’re welcomed into a rich fantasy world of exotic spies, demonic preachers and lonely souls lost at sea..)
Affair Of The Heart
Carter Tutti (Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti)
( ;D --> Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti formed CHRIS & COSEY out of the ashes of their seminal 70s' Industrial band Throbbing Gristle. Throbbing Gristle (and Carter/Tutti) founded the Industrial music genre and were one of the first bands to successfully fuse electronic and acoustic instrumentation. Their musical legacy is still very much in evidence today. When Throbbing Gristle was terminated in 1981 Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti signed to Rough Trade Records and began recording and performing as CHRIS & COSEY. From the very start they indulgently utilised electronics, sampling, rhythms and Cosey's distinctive vocals, cornet and guitar style. In 1982 (and in collaboration with Rough Trade) they formed their own offshoot record label Conspiracy International (aka: CTI) for their more experimental recordings and collaborative projects. CTI continues to run alongside CARTER and TUTTI's more accessible work.)
( ;D --> Carter Tutti (Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti) are set to release a new single,
their first one in over twenty years, on their own CTI label on the 20th of May 2013.
A double A –side release featuring two versions of ‘Coolicon’, the new single is the follow up to 1992's 'Synaesthesia' and is released on ten inch green vinyl and is also available to download.)
Throbbing Gristle/Chris & Cosey clip from Synth Britannia:
( ;D --> The soundscapes created by John M, aka Tarantula X, conjure a mood and feeling similar to exploring a vast, snow-covered forest, with the last of the afternoon sunlight peeking through the trees. It's what film sets refer to as "The Magic Hour," and the driving synths and melancholy tone of Tarantula X's debut EP captures a feeling of mystery and alienation that is simultaneously exhilarating and unnerving.)
Syria (?†N? Remix)
Crystal Castles - Affection (Tarantula X Remix
( ;D --> Lost somewhere in the thralls of shamanic flight, Brusque Twins occasionally resurface offering up intimate pieces of themselves, giving you a brief glimpse into the fervent emotions of a mind a world away. Haunting feminine vocals drift into moonlit synthetic beats, caught in visions of the past but always looking towards the future.)
Game Of Desire
( ;D --> Fueled by 80s TV shows, Europloitation and Synth-scored B-cinema, this is French Electro that isn't from Paris and has no friends in the scene.)
