Drama
Loneliness

Drama were making electronic music before it was cool. In the late '70s and into the '80s, bands in Eric Simpson and Don Stagg's local Ontario, Canada, were playing in guitar rock bands. Loneliness is the band's debut LP from 1978 and it's a brooding piece of electronica which shifts between New-Wave and Krautrock.

Colin Potter
The Where House?

Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Organum, Other Bands - tireless sound-maverick Colin Potter has worked with them all, and knocked out an overwhelming stream of his own material since 1980 right up to the present day. The Where House? is one of his first releases, now remastered for vinyl by Dark Entries and sounding immense. Gluttonous bass and fringe synth in ‘Yoursmine’ are followed by choral drones of ‘Alleys’ and it only gets weirder from then on. Super industrial/post punk electronic experiments.

Lena Platonos
Gallop

Amazing Greek synth-pop, retrieved from the mid-1980s by Dark Entries. Lena Platonos was highly influential in Greek electronic circles, and we can see why: her instrumentals are inventively constructed, and her gorgeously detached Greek-language vocals float serenely above. Gallop is a great record.

El Deux + Martin Kraft
Nur Fur Madchen

Swiss duo El Deux (Gutze Gautschi and Steno Onetz of Frische Farbe) hooked up with Swiss solo Martin Kraft in 1981 and made this album. Bad luck if you don’t identify as female, because this one’s Nur Für Mädchen. The 1980s crate-diggers over at Dark Entries Records have exhumed the old Deutsche new wave-esque synthpop sparkler and thrown in an additional song for good measure.

Talking Drums
Courage

Another cracking reissue from Dark Entries here. Talking Drums were a Glaswegian group that knocked about in the ‘80s, releasing two EPs and a full-length record. Courage was first put out in 1982, around the same time groups like Orange Juice were kicking it in Talking Drums’ home city. There’s a fair bit of OJ to these tunes, while the influence of NYC no-wavers like ESG is also apparent. All in all this is a good one for linking Glasgow’s first DIY golden-age with the modern-day endeavours of acts like Golden Teacher and Whilst.
  • Vinyl 12" (DE229)

Billy Nightmare
Reality Check

Some ye olde Chicago House fayre here. Billy Nightmare dropped the Reality Check EP in 1996 around the same time that he was also putting stuff out on labels like Trax under the moniker Mystic Bill. The four tunes here are elegant house tunes with earworm basslines. Originally released by the Sounds. imprint, this reissue comes courtesy of Dark Entries.

Solid Space
Space Museum

It was first released on cassette in 1982. It was mixed on 8-track in a shed. It has vintage Who cybermen on the cover and, indeed, contains many sci-fi references within the music itself. Yes, this is Space Museum by Solid Space, a post-punkish electropop masterpiece reissued after 35 years of relative obscurity. Acoustic strums rattle around cloudy synths, snappy drum machines and echoed vox. Now it can be added to your personal LP museum.

Miss Kittin & The Hacker
Lost Tracks Vol. 2

Dark Entries (Helena Hauff, Bill Converse) drop their second rarities collection from French electro mainstays Miss Kittin & The Hacker. The pair have combed through their archives and unearthed four demos they recorded in the late-90s for Lost Tracks Vol. 2. These are fun, sprightly numbers that combine influences from synth-pop, acid house, synthwave and more, while Kittin’s playful and witty vocals give the record a pleasing breeziness.

Lena Platonos
Lepidoptera

Reissue of the ‘mother of Greek electronica’ by Dark Entries here. Originally released in 1986, the pianist-turned-composer Lena Platonos conceived Lepidoptera as a record of avant-pop. Full of stylistic left-turns - dinky nature documentary soundtrack one minute, Devo-meets-Laurie Anderson the next - this record sounds oddly contemporary when put up against the smorgasbord-pop sound of so many current post-genre artists.

Richard Wahnfried
Time Actor

Time Actor is credited to Richard Wahnfried, who you’ve probably never heard of, right? So why bother listening to Time Actor? Well, because that Wagner-referencing name is a pseudonym for the collaboration of German synth wizard Klaus Schulze and the original psychedelic Fireman Arthur Brown himself! What a team-up eh? Remastered reissue of this rare 1979 treat, spread over two LPs.
  • Vinyl Double LP (DE215LP)

Instant Music
Instant Music

Kraftwerk inspired poppy post-punk from 80s Munich. Instant Music managed to do what so many Kraftwerk imitators failed to do, and made six fun (!) robotic tracks, including one where washing machine instructions are read out over samples of the machine in questions. Remaster released on Dark Entries.
  • Vinyl LP (DE201LP)

Various
Outer Himalayan Presents

This collaborative release between Dark Entries and Sacred Bones sees them chronicling the output of British post-punk imprint Outer Himmalayan Records. Active in the late 70s and early 80s, the label’s 7” releases of bands The Magits, Soft Drinks and The Haters became formative releases in the annals of both Goth and anarcho-punk. For this reissue, the tracks have been remastered and come accompanied with a zine.
  • Vinyl LP (DE205LP)

Cupol
Like This For Ages EP

Experimental synths, wailing vocals, hypnotic rhythms, hellish ambience.... all of this weirdness and more can be found on the vinyl remaster of Like This For Ages EP by Cupol, a unique British post-punk duo from the 80s. Every aspect of the music on this record is discordant, disturbing and wildly creative. Released as Vinyl 12" on the Dark Entries label.

Lena Platonos
Sun Masks

Trailblazer in the world of Greek electronic music, and pianist, music composer, and musician, Lena Platonos, returns with a remastered version of her first record, “Sun Masks”. The first of her releases to include Platonos’ own vocals and words, “Sun Masks” takes inspiration from both literature and film, including the works of novelist, Julio Cortázar.

Severed Heads
Come Visit The Big Bigot

Originally released in 1986, Dark Entries reissue Come Visit The Big Bigot on double vinyl for the first time since. Experimental and generally quite harsh percussion, noisy synthesis and sample mangling back vocals that vary from Kraftwerk-ian to almost Gary Numan. At it’s core it’s an industrial record, but with some polished edges.

Villa Abo
Magnetic Moves

Villa Åbo is now vinyl-able: the 2014 debut LP of this seldom-active pet project of Jan Svensson’s has found its way into waxy waters. Svensson has been active for decades under various names and as manager of the label Börft. The Villa Åbo project is all about exquisitely-produced minimal techno. The productions usually contain just enough elements and acidity to populate compelling, ambiguous atmospheres. At other times (e.g. ‘Bianco Festival’)  things get a bit cheekier.
  • Vinyl Double LP (DE197LP)

Intense Molecular Activity
I.M.A.

I.M.A. were a pair of New York sound industry people back in the early 80’s: their jobs gave them access to some interesting studio spaces out of hours, which they utilised to record their own versions of the sounds they loved. Synths and percussion were performed, recorded, and then bounced and dubbed through a network of tape loops and recorders, for extra interesting results. Their Intense Molecular Activity is now reissued in full replica style, with a postcard, on vinyl, by Dark Entries.

Trisomie 21
Chapter IV

When Trisomie 21’s Chapter IV, Le Je-ne-sais quoi et le presque-rien dropped in the mid-80s, it was very much ahead of its time, especially for the French post-punk scene. While now it just sounds of its time, that doesn’t mean it’s not worthy of reissue, in this case via Dark Entries. Obvious touchstones are Durutti Column and Joy Division as well as the doomier moments of The Cure’s discography. This edition has been remastered and comes with a whole extra vinyl of remixes and version.
  • Vinyl Double LP (DE195LP)

Trisomie 21
Le Repos Des Enfants Heureux

First released in 1983, this mini-LP showcased what French post-punkers Trisomie 21 were all about: lush soundscapes, cinematic imagery and irresistibly moody melancholia. It still sounds as good as it did, and in addition to the original five tracks, this vinyl release features four exclusive demos.

Nu-Sound II Crew / Magnus I
Spilt EP

Both a reissue and a split EP, this is one of the things we love most at Norman Records. Throw in the fact that we’re talking about oldskool experimental 90s synthesizer driven electro, and we might be tempted to keep all these beautiful vinyl 12”s, including the sweet postcard of the Nu Sounds crew djing.

Patrick Cowley
Afternooners

Sex! Now that I have your attention: porn! Wait. Patrick Cowley is the electronic artist responsible for a series of cult gay porn soundtracks; Afternooners is the final volume to be released in an archival series of these works. Associated with creating his own dance sound based on trying to transpose other genres for synth, his music retains a unique sound faraway from the typical cry of vintage. This one's arguably the most experimental in its series.
  • Vinyl Double LP (DE185LP)

Charlie
Spacer Woman

Mediterranean futurism from Charlie with Spacer Woman. This is a first time outing for this track as a 12" vinyl, and is brimming with relentless 808's, cosmic synths and vocodered vocals. Themes of intergalactic alien and/or robotic love affairs assures you that this is a pure Italo-disco classic. This remaster is out on Dark Entries.

Patrick Cowley
School Daze

A unique compilation of works from the late electronic pioneer Patrick Cowley. School Daze features over eighty minutes of music from two gay porn films 'Muscle Up' and 'School Daze'. From Moroder-esque synths to musique concrete it’s a remarkable testament to his compositional skill and wide-ranging ambitions. Out on CD and vinyl double LP from Dark Entries.
  • CD (DE052CD)

Deux Filles
Silence & Wisdom / Double Happiness

Deux Filles are one of those jolly good wheezes that some musicians like to play: Simon Fisher Turner and Colin Lloyd Turner made up a dramatic back-story about French teenagers which is worth a read, but these 2 albums (presented here together) are entirely their own work. Both 1982’s Silence & Wisdom and 1983’s Double Happiness cast an interesting spell with Eno-ish instrumental moods. Remastered and reissued by Dark Entries.

Robert Rental & Glenn Wallis
Untitled

Nice slice of industrial-ish jam music from the sessions of Robert Rental and Glenn Wallis, recorded with guitar and a Wasp synth but also using tape machines to loop, speed-switch and twist the sounds into woozy new shapes. These Untitled soundscapes are an interesting place to sit within, and this remastered reissue accompanies them with a nice little facsimile of a letter from one to the other. On Dark Entries.

The Hacker
Le Théâtre des Opérations

With a heritage in darkside electro that reaches back before electroclash was even a thing, The Hacker knows gruesome, deviant machine music better than most, and he sounds right at home on Dark Entries. He comes on vital and fearless on this new set of eight jams, displaying a club-minded approach that begs to be smeared on the walls of dank basements from here to Hades.

Peppermint Lounge
Perfect High

Dark Entries turn their attention to short lived German outfit Peppermint Lounge, who originally released Perfect High in 1983. It’s an engrossing slice of synth wave seduction with a killer vocal turn that comes on like Siouxsie Sioux gone to the disco and enough warbling, throbbing melodies to satisfy the most synthetic of souls.

Virginia
Blue Pyramid

It’s high time the Psychic TV catalogue got a reappraisal, and Dark Entries are just the label to do the job. Working in tandem with Emotional Rescue, they’ve dug out this blistering set of early house wares from Dave Ball of Soft Cell his wife Virginia, whose violin flairs create a wild texture over the staggeringly prescient and wonderfully menacing club cuts.
  • Vinyl 12" (DE181)

Alesia Cosmos
Exclusivo!

Strasbourg-based band Alesia Cosmos were only active long enough to make two albums, hence they’re just the kind of early 80s oddity that Dark Entries loves to reissue so dearly. Their debut album Exclusivo! originally came out in 1983, and it’s faithfully reproduced here with a choice insert written by original member Bruno de Chenerilles.

Keine Ahnung
Keine Ahnung

Keine Ahnung are another group from that fertile early 80s period in Germany that gave rise to so many cult gems hidden in the folds of industrial and minimal wave history. While much of their material remains unreleased, this debut album made a minor splash on its initial release and now enjoys a righteous reissue via Dark Entries. Bar the occasional punky blast, it’s mainly made up of sleazy, sinister synth cuts for the night walkers to stomp to.

Group Rhoda
Wilderless

Dark Entries take a break from reissues to present the enchanting synth incantations of Oakland-based artist Group Rhoda. Warm, glutinous acid basslines and delicate lead lines provide the perfect synthy backdrop to Rhoda’s perfectly deadpan vocal turn, coming on like it’s 1983 and making it sound totally natural. The mood may be vintage, but the execution benefits from a modern sheen that sets it apart.
  • Label(s):
  • Dark Entries

Tranceonic
New Crime

It’s staggering to think Yello legends Boris Blank and Carlos Peron recorded this incredible collection of unsettling synth jams in the mid 70s. Originally planned for release by The Residents, what never came to fruition at the time finally sees the light of the day now via this fantastic compilation, comfortably nestled amongst kindred spirits on Dark Entries.
  • Vinyl LP (DE175LP)

Helena Hauff
A Tape

Sometimes we all need our fix of hypnotic and paranoid beats on cassette, and that’s where Helena Hauff comes in. Known for her crazy electronic work so far, which is as weird as it is good, she’s now dropping some 12 tracks on A Tape. And it could be your tape. Get it freshly, well, whatever it is they do with tapes.

Jago
I'm Going To Go

1983's cult Italo classic 'I’m Going To Go' by Jago gets the full remastering treatment. On the A side is the full original version and the ridiculously funky instrumental, as rinsed by Larry Levan at Paradise Garage. On the flip you get Frankie Knuckles' dubby Plant Mix. 12" in a redesigned, die-cut jacket by Eloise Leigh with postcard insert, lyrics and notes, on Dark Entries.

The Neon Judgement
Cockerill-Sombre

The Neon Judgement are another brick in Belgium’s sizzling early-80’s EBM / synth-wave scene. Their Cockerill-Sombre EP, released in 1983, contains their biggest hit ‘The Fashion Party’, which is deliciously cold and sleazily aggressive. Remastered audio pressed to 12” vinyl, packaged with an insert with photos and new liner notes by the band’s own Dirk Da Davo. On Dark Entries.

Tom Ware
Tom Ware

Smoking hot 80s boogie rarity alert! Dark Entries have really come up trumps here, digging out the supremely desirable 1983 album from cult synth operator Tom Ware. This is bold, razor sharp machine music that stands up to contemporary electro with staggering confidence – in another universe this would have been a formative album for the likes of DMX Krew and every other electro aficionado.

Remix albums can go one of two ways, but this one does the job it’s supposed to do, and pretty well. A remix album by a collection of contemporary Dj’s that take on four tracks from Lena Plantonos’ record Sun Masks. All four tracks have been twisted and shaped into a number of dancefloor hits.

Frak
Sudden Haircut EP

Frak have been making their distinctive no-wave synth jams for almost thirty years now, and with Sudden Haircut EP they show no signs of slowing down. The trio use analogue gear to make a raw and extremely melodic industrial techno; a uniquely Scandinavian machine-music built from icy synths and drum machines.

Krootchey
Qu'Est-Ce Qu'll A (D'Plus Que Moi Ce Negro La?)

Philippe Krootchey was a highly active DJ in Paris in the 70s and 80s. Forming the group Love International releasing Dance On The groove And Do The Funk in 1981. Here we have a remaster and reissue of his debut solo outing housing his huge energy in freak out electro-disco. Features the english version and slowed remix. Vinyl on Dark Entries.

Tobias Bernstrup
27

Post-punk, Electro, and synth wave reissue label Dark Entries look closer to now with this reissue of Italo-disco synth producer Tobias Berstrup’s EP 27. Taking two mixes from the original release and adding some unreleased material from his Re-Animate Me album sessions. FFO Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode.

3 Teens Kill 4
No Motive

Remastered for vinyl by George Horn, No Motive is the 1982 release from New York experimental rock outfit 3 Teens Kill 4. Although the record may be from the 80’s, it could easily be plucked from any of the current new wave bands, showing just how progressive 3 Teens Kill 4 are- notice the references to Reagan throughout out the entire record. Available on vinyl LP.

Rich La Bonte
Mayan Canals

Setting up his own label, Flatdisk, in 1980 Rich La Bonté has released sporadically. Dark Entries have remastered his debut full length that was released in 1981. Mayan Canals is as eccentric as it is experimental, with obvious inspiration from Frank Zappa it’s woozy, psychedelic, lots of synthesizer experimentation, and free form nonsensical pop at parts.

Psychic TV
Alien Be-In Remix EP

The classic 1989 Psychic TV track Alien Be-In, presented in full remastered glory and accompanied by two remixes. The original track captures the band’s wyrd take on Acid House, and remixes from Silent Servant and John Tejada push the sound into more contemporary forms of bangin’. Real striking packaging too!

Household Shocks

Originally released in 1980 on Stark Products, now remastered and repressed through Dark Entries - Household Shocks compiles 16 tracks of (then) emerging DIY, new wave, and post-punk acts from the north of England. Including Product Of Reason, Thunderboys, Sinking Ships, Defectors, One Gang Logic, and Juveniles.

M&G
When I Let You Down

The Vicenza-born Italian duo of Mirko Galli and Maurizio Sangineto (aka M&G) were an integral cog in the vast Italian 1970's/80's synth movement; When I Let You Down showcases the pair at their best. The album also highlights their love of such retro electronic hardware as the Yamaha DX7, and an array of Korg modules.

Joe Garrasco & M.M.
Action EP

Italo-disco from 1986 by Joe Garrasco & M.M. remastered and reissued through Dark entries. Vinyl contains four versions of Action, two vocal and two instrumentals, one pair of them under it’s original title Love Sex For Sale. Comes with postcard with notes and original artwork for both versions.

Flying
Marilyn

Remastered specifically for vinyl re-pressing, Marilyn is the 1985 creation of Italian disco project of Flying. This is clearly the brainchild of two minds that were locked firmly in the science behind legendary synth instrumentation such as the Roland Jupiter-8 and the Elka Synthex. Retro gold. 
  • Vinyl 12" (DE161)

Tony More
Tonight

Tony More, aka Marzio Benelli and Andrea Venturoli, is the Italian disco collaboration that specialised in the sumptuous use of retro synths. The Elka Synthex, Roland TB-303 and TR-909 are just some of the hardware featuring in this gorgeous slab of lovesick electronica. All the material on this Vinyl has been specifically, and expertly, remastered for its new pressing.

Silvia
Silvia

Silvia’s record Silvia was recorded in a single day in 1982 (as a side-effect of having an extra studio day left over after another recording project) and released that same year. This is properly chilly / sexy Neue Deutsche Welle music, just the way you like it. Reissued by Dark Entries, who have given the LP their usual fine remaster + insert and postcard treatment.

Night Moves

Four different mixes of Transdance by Michael Guihen’s Night Moves. Originally recorded in 1981, and revisited and remixed for the next three years to include newer influences and elements.

Beranek
Sound Of Danger

Dark Entries uncover another cold synth gem. Remastered from the 1981 recordings, Beranek, having received a great amount of exposure due to being banned in on Norwegian radio, recorded this album which wasn’t well received but is a cold(wave) masterpiece, with iced metal synths and a glam David Bowie-esque vocal performance.

Diseno Corbusier
Stadia

Avant-garde does not do this record justice - this is extreme experimentalism, in a way that others wouldn't dare attempt. Stadia, the third full-length offering by Spanish-based electronic duo Diseno Corbusier, is a haywire concoction including spasming drums, female yelps and electronic bursts. It pushes the boundaries, in every feasible way.

Smersh
Selected Deep House Anthems

Don’t let the title fool you, Selected Deep House Anthems contains some of the rawest, no-wave electro ever committed to wax. Smersh specialised in noisy, unrefined acid and techno that borrowed from EBM and post-punk and is ripe for rediscovery. This much-needed pressing comes from the Dark Entries label.

Patrick Cowley & Candida Royalle
Candida Cosmica

Patrick Cowley is often uttered in the same breath as Giorgio Moroder as being a pioneer of electronic dance music, and is probably most known for being a leading producer of the “Hi-NRG” sound. Candida Cosmica is a much more minimal affair, a collaboration with his roommate of the time Candida Royalle, her experimental vocals interweaved with synthesizers, handbuilt machines and percussion. Recorded 1973-75.

Die Form
Zoo

Recorded between 1980-82 during writing sessions for their album Die Puppe, these 10 tracks are all hardware equipment (TR-808 and ARP2600 to name a few) and mostly improvisations. These synth mangling electro tracks are rough and ready, noisy and thrown together, and that’s why they’re great. Distorted vocals and tape hiss, yes please.

Vintage Belgian electro action in the style that the Dark Entries label loves so dearly. Zwischenfall recorded and released the Heute EP in 1983, although two tracks heard here have never been pressed to vinyl before.

Zwischenfall
Sandy Eyes

No, this isn’t part of the resurgence. Originally released in 1984 Zwischenfall’s Sandy Eyes is a mix of down-tempo disco and synth-pop that utilises early samplers, synths and funkily-slapped bass lines to make a record you can put between your Blondie, Daft Punk, and minimal wave records. Ice cold groovin’.

The Pool
Dance It Down / Jamaica Running

Patrick Keel’s new wave dance experiments from 1983 were received so well by DJs at the time that he reworked them into faster versions and dub tracks specifically for mixing. So, here Dark Entities have collected the originals as well as the dance re-edits and two “european” mixes from the 12” released a year later.
  • Vinyl 12" (DE130)

Wanexa
The Man From Colours

Rago & Farina produced a large body of Italo-disco classics during the eighties and ‘The Man From Colours’ is one of the best and most unusual examples of this. For a track from the mostly dance driven genre of Italo-disco, the sound is unusually dreamy and nostalgic, combining forlorn synth lines, classic 808 drum patterns and breathtaking vocals to create an atmospheric disco odyssey.

Philippe Chany
Rive Gauche

Philippe Chany was one of the hitmakers behind Love International, but later ran off for a solo project. Rive Gauche was apparently informed by experimental film soundtracks, and Chany is pretty successful at replicating the eclectic stylistic dabbling of some of those scores, through plenty of sampling. This reissue edition has been remastered and is presented on vinyl in a replica of the original sleeve. On Dark Entries.

Series-A
Evolution ⁵ Technology

These rad electro jams from 1987 only ever made it to the promotional stage before their original label went defunct, leaving only 50 copies out in the wild. That’s a shame, as Series-A did great work with Evolution⁵ Technology, a forward-looking synth-single with a real kick to it. All remastered and re-pressed now, with the addition of a new JTC remix.

Space Art
Nous Savons Tout

1977 was pretty early to be making synth-pop, but that’s when French duo Space Art got going. This reissue is of their third single, first released in 1978. Nous Savons Tout feels like it looks to the future, with epic synth-work that recalls French electro-proggers Heldon. Remastered 7” with original artwork and a postcard with some liner notes.

Phantom Forth
The EEPP

Phantom Forth recorded The EEPP for release on Flying Nun in 1984. It offers an insight into one corner of New Zealand’s low-key DIY underground scene: apparently a dark and shadowy corner judging by the coldwave / post-punk stylings on display here. This Dark Entries reissue is fully remastered, features 2 bonus demos, and comes with original artwork and a poster!

Various
Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Vol. 2

The BART is the rail transport system which connects San Francisco's Bay Area, and so it should come as no surprise that this is a compilation of music from that area around the late '70s and early '80s. With contributions from the likes of Factrix, Chrome and Tuxedomoon as well as lesser known artists from the scene, this compilation records the strange motorik mixture of krautrock, synthpop and no-wave that was spreading across the bay like a rash.

Konstruktivists
A Dissembly

Konstruktivists have been releasing pretty much every year (with the odd gap here and there) since 1982. With a recent album out, Dark Entries look back at its beginnings; mixing with Throbbing Gristle and all of the Industrial records gang. This is a must for anyone into the initial industrial releases - gritty, cold, experimentation with a load of hardware.

Dario Dell'Aere
Eagles In The Night

Dario Dell’Aere’s voice sounds like an old American-Soul crooner, but comes backed with full-blast 1985 Italo disco backing on Eagles In The Night. It’s a groovy time and no mistake. The 12”, remastered of course, is housed in a replica sleeve along with a postcard insert. On Dark Entries.

Lost In A Sea Full Of Sighs

Dark Entries continue their mission to resurrect semi-forgotten or little-known greats from the deep 80’s.

Lost In A Sea Full Of Sighs is drawn from 7”s, and is packaged with a replica gig poster and an 8 page zine.

ZYX
Trust No Woman

Austrian synth-pop from 1981. Duo ZYX have a tightly clipped sound, defined by the narrow envelopes of their drum machine samples and the distant, detached vibe of the vocals. And yet Trust No Woman, their debut, is still successful as pop music, despite its cold aesthetic. Vinyl reissue in a replica sleeve, along with the original insert and a postcard. On Dark Entries.

Some Bizarre
Don't Be Afraid

Italian trio Some Bizarre recorded and released their very first production, Don’t Be Afraid in 1983. It’s a gorgeous period piece of synth-disco, an easy floor-filler with strong summer-night vibes.

Ghibli
I'm Looking For You

I’m Looking For You was the recorded debut of Italian artist Alberto Garbelli, aka Ghibli, first put out in 1985.

This 12” is remastered and packed within a replica of the original sleeve, plus a postcard. On Dark Entries.

Brand Image
Are You Loving?

Bill Converse
Meditations / Industry

Despite being deeply involved in the ‘90s rave and techno scene, this is synth experimenter Bill Converse’s vinyl LP debut. Meditations/Industry collects tracks from 2012-13. These tunes borrow textures and technology from the Chicago house and Detroit techno that fascinates Converse, but then strip them down to their strangest elements. Ragged interlocking synths compete for space and over-driven drum machines frame twisted acid-303 basslines.
  • Vinyl LP (DE103LP)

Crash Course In Science
Jump Over Barrels

Crash Course In Science are a post-punk band formed by three art school students in Philadelphia in 1979. Whilst guitars, drums and synths were used, the band eschewed convention by experimenting with toy instruments and kitchen appliances to add to their sound. Jump Over Barrells was recorded in 1981, intended for an album called Near Marineland, the song remained unmixed and unreleased. This 12” also features a robust remix by Charles Manier aka Tadd Mullinix and a demo version from 1980 which highlights the track’s raw sparseness.

Patrick Cowley
Muscle Up

Shoc Corridor
Experiments in Incest

This is the only album ever produced by Shoc Corridor, as the band was torn apart by visa issues: apparently the Home Office circa 1982 didn’t think that recording an album named Experiments In Incest was a good enough reason to grant leave to remain. Strange. But they did manage to record this great collection of playful electronic journeys. Reissue on Dark Entries.

Boytronic
Bryllyant EP

Take a trip back to post punk era 80s Germany. Boytronic are sonically in-line with New Order, Kraftwerk, and Depeche Mode from a Hamburg underground perspective. “You” being their biggest hit across Europe, is an openly gay love song, and this openness flows throughout the entire release. Instantly danceable. Extended mix of “You” is previously unreleased on vinyl. 12” Vinyl on Dark Entries with 8.5x11 glossy press photo with liner notes, credits and lyrics.

Miss Kittin & The Hacker
Lost Tracks Vol. 1

World Of Rubber

Wish Key
Orient Express / Last Summer

Smersh
Super Heavy Solid Waste

Spanning a decade across the ‘80s and ‘90s the eclectic industrial sounds on the Smersh compilation Super Heavy Solid Waste are a clanging joy to behold.
