Spirit Catcher is a duo of psychedelic proportions. The Belgian-based boys Jean Vanesse and Thomas Sohet create layered synth-disco rekindling DFA new age duo Delia Gonzalez and Gavin Russom partying with Luke Vibert. "Sweet deal" is minimal synth-heavy track that will have no problem warming up any dancefloor.

Fresh from his recent full-length collaboration with Bpitch labelhead Ellen Alien, Sascha Ring a.k.a. Apparat is back with his most realized release to date. Like well-rounded melodic producers Trentemoller and Lusine, Apparat utilizes live instrumentation (guitars, drums, etc.) to craft his moody synth craft. "Arcadia" is just a taste of this producer's potent passion for pop atmospherics.
Disco punk has come a long way since acts from the DFA camp and !!! affiliates set the pace for a blossoming scene of energetic bands and bedroom engineers. Foreign Islands is proof. Since the band's (quite recent) inception, they've already signed to rising label Deaf Dumb + Blind Recordings (Fujiya and Miyagi), and taken over the New York City circuit playing with acts from Lady Sovereign to The Detachment Kit. "We Know You Know It" is an exclusive track from the limited edition 7" of the same name. Yes.
Eats Tapes is San Francisco's mutant shred-machines. Armed with a mass of hardware synths, modified drum machines, and a MIDI Nintendo, the duo has stampeded the noise-techno meets art rock gamut. Dos Mutantes is a blasting, anarchic post-punk oddity that's both danceworthy and fight-worthy.
Ekler'o'shock's tenth release Unexpektheadz 2 is a collection of cosmically-alligned French electro bangers. And the first offering from all-girl protégés Terry Poison is a hyper-active pop-ascent into the new French sound. '24 Hours' may be that pre-peak track that gets swanky warehouses and clubs locked, loaded, and ready for departure.
