New release news 5th May 2015

Our good friend, Microchip Junky has put out a a new release of delightful analogue bleeps and bloops called ‘Spot Wobble’. You can grab it for a ridiculously cheap £1 and that gets you 6 different mixes and that’s basically like getting it for free. Have a listen to it here:

One of Yorkshire’s best new synth bands last year was Berlyn Trilogy headed by Dorian Cramm. He opted to leave that project behind and has now begun a new one under the name of Promenade Cinema where he is joined by Blurred Girl, who as you may recall joined us for a euro cheese special at the end of 2013 and was briefly a part of Jan Doyle Band. To us it sounds like the perfect evolution from the work he did within Berlyn Trilogy, keeping a sonic theme but moving on into even greater more expressive territory. Here’s a Chemical Haunting, it will delight your ears muchly.

Bluetown Electronica’s Paul Randall released a new EP yesterday as his excellent Tesla Coil project. It’s called Beltek and continues his delight form for superb off kilter unusual beat arrangements. What’s more is it’s totally free. Can’t get cheaper than free. Also it was his birthday yesterday so happy birthday Paul! Keep up the creativity

Jan Doyle Band played live in Lancaster at the weekend and also did a dark DJ set of goth and other things which you can listen to on mixcloud here:

That’s all for now, until next time!

New D.E.F. Recordings release: Voltage Controlled Music + Eigenfrequenz – Moments

We’re pleased to announce the latest release on Doncaster Electronic Foundation recordings: Voltage Controlled Music + Eigenfrequenz’s second collaboration- Moments.

Recorded in August 2014 they once again gathered together a vast array of vintage synthesisers and spent a day improvising and experimenting.

The recordings were edited down once again to a CD sized album but no additional material has been added, everything is as it happened. They’re also playing live in Sheffield tonight (Eigenfrequenz for the first time ever) at Dada Bar from 9pm. So to celebrate that you can have it for free for a little while. As opposed to the £5 we normally charge.
