We would like to say Thank You for a fruitful 2012 and wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year with this little bit from Diskodiktator – a somewhat hotter version of your everyday wishlist. We will continue to bring you presents all year in 2013…
It’s been a while since Quelles Paroles made any noise but 2013 sees the return of the former trio (now a duo) as they release the brand new single ”Apart” on January 5. The band will support American electropop group extravaganza The Crüxshadows at Inkonst in Malmö on the same day – yet another reason to celebrate!
Two jaded souls jilted by hope…
The single contains the title track and a suitable remix crafted by fellow Swedes Diskodiktator and both will be available worldwide on most digital streaming services and download stores.
What does a band like Diskodiktator have in common with other acts like Page, Arachnophobias and compute except the fact that they are all tall and handsome Swedes? Together with 14 other bands Diskodiktator has joined forces with the Creme de la Creme of Swedish electronic artists and the joint effort is available on the charity compilation ”The Seventies Revisited” out on December 15 2012.
The full length sampler contains 15 tracks of classic seventies hits interpreted by artists of today and the result is nothing but stunning! Diskodiktator took a bite out of the wonderful and antisexist song ”You Could’ve Been A Lady” by those colorful funkateers in Hot Chocolate and you can hear a snippet of it in this compilation megamix:
The album is available on CD with a deluxe booklet, as download though the usual channels and on most streaming services. Preorder the CD today as it is bound to sell out! Link
Today we celebrate the release of a strange single; Sweden’s original old school electropunk legends have remixed two tracks from Atari Cowboy and hense the title ”The Cat Rapes Dog Remixes”. It’s not really a surprice though; Jonas Avertoft, the man behind the wheel of this three piece outfit has also been the guitarist for Cat Rapes Dog since the mid 1990′s.
Being an ever changing constellation of musicians Slutet (”The End” in English) keeps on creating music that soothes without acknowledging the dark sides of life. The emotions are key and as the songs evolve each fiber of your body is on end, each receptor fine tuned and every beat, every note and every moment counts as something no-one would want to be without. As the band puts it themselves…
The new EP is entitled ”The World Is Empty, Paint It Red (A Tribute To Verner)” and contains four tracks that proves exactly what the band claims. Enjoy it on Spotify or any other output now!
Our lovely trio from Finland Flux recently changed their name to Flux Fin in order to separate themselves from the other bands with the same name and in celebration they have collected a number of high profile remixers to have a go at their track ”Defences” from their current album ”Motivational Chants”.
Dupont from Sweden, Old School Union from Finland and Celluloide from France each took turns at turning the title track into something new and the result of can be heard on ”Defences / All Out” released on October 1 by Electric Fantastic Sound, licenced from na-no Tuotanto worldwide.
Have a listen at the ”Free Pussy Galore Remix” by Dupont on our SoundCloud page!
A book about the first seven years of Electric Fantastic Sound is being written. More details coming…
