  • Turkish one-man New Wave /Post-Punk project of Mert Yıldız from İstanbul, RAIN TO RUST “Dead Violets Night (feat. N.L.P.)” new single

One-man solo post-punk project from Istanbul, Rain To Rust, returns in collaboration with fellow artist Matt Loftin with a re-invention of a song from “Stillborn Flowers” album, wielding new instrumentation and lyrics to add 80s-tinged new wave and synthpop hooks, fusing richly bright and airy synthetic washes, Peter Hook-esque wistfully evocative melodic bassline allure and a beguiling haunting and intoxicating pull between dual vocal energies to elicit a liberation from the toxic flow of modern uncertainty. 

  • Ukrainian EBM /darkwave /new wave /techno /post-industrial electronic one-man band formed in Lviv in 2020 by Anton Shiferson, aka SHIP HER SON “VIER LITER WASSER (REVISED)” from “VIER LITER WASSER” new single from the upcoming album “ESSEN”

Ukrainian post-industrial electronic one-man-band first single implements edgy darkwave guitar danger, rumbling walking hypnotic bassline, clinking and metallic industrial rhythms around a robotic Teutonic female voice, to inject dire spirals of simmering anxiety through the clanging boundaries of doom. On the flip fellow Dnipropop finest Kurs Valüt add bass-heavy dancefloor punch to the recipe.  

  • Belo Horizonte, Brasil synth dark/punk electronic project of Cauê Rocha (Xopô), aka ASSECLA “Já foi” off the “Grave” EP on DARQ DISTRO

There’s an intriguing heartfelt quality in the Brazilian DIY electronic dark/punk solo project with an 80s nostalgic debut 3-tracker entwined in something between synthpop and darkwave through hypnotic iterations of icy bright synth swirls, bouncing industrialized disco-like rhythms, warbling droning bassline, and melancholic male vocals lost into a brooding stream of consciousness left in rousing bursts of obscure dancy bubbly grooves.

  • French/Israeli ‘weird wave’ /’funeral pop’ duo of artists Xavier Klaine & Ruth Rosenthal aka WINTER FAMILY “On Beautiful Days” off upcoming LP
