146 / Yan: Super Pig

Yan arrives at the Fwonk table with a pair of huge big dance tracks: Super Pig is a noisey hard trance track with humongous long build ups and a duck‘n‘pump drop.

DJ GO COME ON! is a tech-infused hard hitter, absolutely riddled with ‘DJ’ samples from your favourite plastic Yahama Keyboards WOO! COME ON

The amazing cover art is provided by Robin Keizer

145 / Lie Craze: GAS/GAD (feat. bumbovsky)

Berlin based electropop artist Lie Craze released her debut album ‘Never Played With The Cool Kids’ in 2009 and her last single and video ‘Oh Dare You’ almost exactly three years ago. This summer her second album is going to be put out eventually with the first single ‘GAS/GAD’ released on Fwonk*.

“GAS/GAD is a bit different from the songs I did on the first album. I usually use a lot of acoustic instruments and a melodic, unaffected vocal line. GAS/GAD is purely electronic with fragmented vocals, a fast-driven sound and a weird attitude. Maybe all my stuff is weird, but this one is extra-weird”

144 / Stratosonics: Bettie Page, Love Machine

Stratosonics are back with another wholly unoriginal, noisy, and out of tune slab of balls to the wall rock and roll. Two songs of loud, raucous garage rock for you to insert into your ears. Enjoy!

142 / Isotherme: Enjoying The Undertow

Enjoying The Undertow is Isotherme’s first single for Fwonk* and displays a penchant for weaving multiple melodies within a song’s structure.

Electronic sounds bubble and splash as if in water. Each melodic line and counter-line represents a creature of the sea. Fish travel by. Dolphins jump. E-bowed guitars mimic whale calls. The bass line is the ocean floor. Mermaids swim in the lightness of the percussion. And the sea itself is heard in the lush pads which envelop the entire piece.

134 / 3dtorus: mind insert

‘Mind Insert’ was chosen as the single for the simple reason that I found it to be the catchiest track of all 11 I produced to be released as the album ‘Rain (On Your Charade)’. To me it is as well a good example for why I think the whole album to be Post Techno. It definitely is techno if you look/listen at each element solitary – but together they do not appear as Techno. Yes, I have quite a strict idea what Techno is and what it sounds like, which is mainly because I experienced it during the 90s when it still was just raw and rough loopbanging all night long. Of course this still exists, but also nowadays all possible kinds of electronic music come under this label, which I took as a reason to show my love and respect for the origins by tagging this Post Techno. I´m very grateful for the epic remix by Heskin Radiophonic. It shows the track in a completely different context/light which also works fine!

131 / James Breeze: What Is It You Would Have Me Do?

From the heart and mind of England based artist, James Breeze, is the lead single ‘What Is It You Would Have Me Do?’, taken from the upcoming début album ‘Post-Human’. The single features a vibrant framework of lush instrumentation, spacious synths, crushing Industrial rhythms and delicate dynamism. This is the sound of catharsis. This is James Breeze.

The single also features the pounding electronica B-side ‘Vitriolic’, with its ever changing tempo and intricate sequencers. An antagonistic melding of pomp and self-efficacy.

125 / Catrin Noise: Remember

Catrin Noise is a singer-songwriter from Bosnia and Herzegovina. She collaborates closely with Plavi Podrum on writing and producing the songs. Remember is a socially engaged song, originated in the harsh reality of an impoverished country (Bosnia) and its uncertain future. It’s a search for hope, rebellion, action, that often ends with a return to oneself. The refuge is found in the personal life. The song is written by Catrin and produced by Plavi Podrum. The remix is produced by 3dtorus.

123 / Katarrhaktes: EVERYTHING TASTES LIKE BLOOD

Teetering on the edge of dissonance, Katarrhaktes summons two disquieting tracks from beyond the pale. Woven from manipulated acoustic instruments, these bleak explorations into the medium stumble between percussive groove and unsettling tension.
