LINE UP

SOFT AS SNOW (Norway)

The Norwegian duo Soft as Snow makes expansive electronic synthpop that pulls the listener down into a cavernous underground rave. Their singular sound can in part be attributed to Oda’s background in performance art and to Øystein’s drumming for various noise rock bands in Oslo’s underground scene. 

On 6th of April the duo are releasing their debut full length ‘Deep Wave’ on Houndstooth. The album was created by Soft as Snow with additional mixing and production by WIFE of Tri Angle Records. Following the album is a surreal 3D-animated video directed by London based artist Conrad Pack, and two 8-bit-psychedelic videos directed by the duo.

”The fractured, childlike vocals of Oda Egjar Starheim are an unsettling presence throughout, peaking on the shamanic analogue march of Pink Rushes” Mojo

MONOCORPSE (The Netherlands)

Probably the best way to describe the music by Monocorpse is to call it post-techno or doom techno. The beats are stripped to the bone, primitive and hypnotic, padded with dark synth sounds creating a ritual experience. Moody and haunting music that would fit perfect as soundtrack to any thriller or psychological drama. His third EP 'The Comfort of Stangers' was released earlier this year on Enfant Terrible sublabel Gooiland Elektro and is the perfect backdrop for a post-apocalyptic dance floor.

HEXENSCHUSS (Based somewhere between Amsterdam and Tel-Aviv)

Keyboard and drums duo Hexenschuss produce fast-paced, sharp and nasty instrumental tracks which merge classic EBM sensibilities with contemporary sound interests. The music is beat-driven and dirty, and shies away neither from experimental nor from pop. It attacks all senses with relentless sound textures, sequencer-like beats, 
and guitar samples. Underneath the apparently simplicity of their hypnotic, repetitive music lies a deep, constantly evolving musicality. 

 "Destabilising, disturbing but radical and captivating"   ..."the two composers give birth to an art of blackness unpublished before, viscous and burning like bitumen"(Indiemusic / FR)
