Raw Ambassador
Mental Disorder

The secretive Raw Ambassador returns to Germany’s Mannequin Records with another volley of throbbing, lo-fi electro EDM. It’s all pulses, crashes and minimal progression.

Fred Ventura
Future Unknown (The Lost House Trax 1988-1992)

Fred Ventura is Italo-Disco royalty these days, but it could all have been so different if he’d followed through with his late-80s/early-90s experiments in house. Mannequin Records have hoovered up what Ventura got to tape in this period, got them properly mixed and sent them off into the world. While the ...view item »

Atelier du Mal
Noblesse Oblige

Formed in 1983, Italian new wave/minimal synth band Atelier du Mal only produced one demo tape and self released it in 1984.

Hardware lovers gather round, everything done on all your favourite ro...view item »

Fallbeil
The Healer

Fallbeil are a Hamburg crew who rock a really sharp combination of electro and acid: the squelches are severe and the percussion is fat. The Healer features two new Fallbeil cuts as well as a remix by Innyster that really cranks up the industrial flavours. Hard-hitting 12” on Mann...view item »
