Acretongue - XL pre-listening snippets online now!



Acretongue
is the first electronic project we know of from South Africa and despite the associations one might have with its country of origin, "Strange Cargo" is bursting with perfection, starting with the incredible cover art and extending to the dark, hypnotic and nonetheless warmly enveloping music.  An unusually haunting album with exceptional sound design, a welcome new face on the electro and synthpop landscape. Nico J. has spent over four years putting the finishing touches on the CD, but the wait has been worth it: an electro highlight of the year!
XL extensive audio samples (2 minutes of each song!) from the album now can be heard here. Dependent will release the album on 28.10. but you can already pre-order your CD for a very special price at our shop.

Encephalon - XL pre-listening snippets online!


Ottawa's Encephalon unite an accessible and club-friendly sound with the outrageously good vocals of bandleader Matt Gifford. Elements of the classic Canadian electro-industrial sound are woven together with futurepop melodies in a way you've never quite heard before. Whereas many albums become one-dimensional in their singleminded pursuit of the dancefloor, Encephalon's debut "The Transhuman Condition" is remarkable for the depth and breadth of styles and ideas. XL extensive audio samples (2 minutes of each song!) from the album now can be heard here
Dependent will release the album on 28.10 for a "Nice Price" but you can already pre-order your CD for a very special price at our shop.

Imperative Reaction - New album now available!



From today the eagerly awaited new Imperative Reaction album is available at all European stores. The press already has heard the album and pronounce:

"Total: 9 / 10 - There are a lot of options for DJs to set their playlists up. For those, who prefer to enjoy music at home alone, four Californians also have something to show, as for example ‘What Is Left To Say’. All in all Imperative Reaction makes a great musical breakthrough with their new album. They opened electronic boundaries and let a rock demon out. So if you’re bored with classical Future Pop and alternative electronic don’t miss this album."  - Reflections Of Darkness

"Rating: 9/10 - The band deliver a solid 11-track masterpiece and nothing compared to its predecessors. Even if it sound like Imperative Reaction should do and no huge changes and nothing mind-blowing, they have succeeded with creating 11 strong tracks, every single track is actually really good, including both heavier tracks with strong bass and beats as well as catchy songs with powerful hooks and addictive melodies. Ted was right with saying this being their defining one."
  - Blackvector

"With this album there is no doubt that Imperative Reaction is headed straight to the top. Don’t dare to hit the pause button for fear that you may miss one more moment of the amazingly orchestrated chaos. Believe the hype, the boys are back." - NYC After Dusk

Here you can still listen to XL audio clips of all tracks from "Imperative Reaction" and at our shop you also can order your CD-copy of the album for a very special price.

Dependent - Double electro newcomer release this October!



It's hard not to notice that the number of international newcomer releases in the electronic scene has fallen sharply in the last two years. Small wonder that in the era of YouTube and Rapidshare, it's more difficult than ever before for new bands to sell copies of an album.

In spite of the risks, Dependent have stepped up to the plate and this October will release two new international newcomer albums simultaneously. However, both ENCEPHALON from Canada and ACRETONGUE from South Africa (!) are sure to buck the trend and find favor with fans and buyers on the sheer strength of their material: "We worked over a year with both bands on their albums, refined the tracklists, production, and artwork, and the end result is two exceptional albums from newcomers that really have their own styles, who aren't simply clones of existing acts", wrote Dependent impresario Stefan Herwig in the label newsletter.

Ottawa's Encephalon unite an accessible and club-friendly sound with the outrageously good vocals of bandleader Matt Gifford. Elements of the classic Canadian electro-industrial sound are woven together with futurepop melodies in a way you've never quite heard before. Whereas many albums become one-dimensional in their singleminded pursuit of the dancefloor, Encephalon's debut "The Transhuman Condition" is remarkable for the depth and breadth of styles and ideas.

At the other end of the spectrum, Acretongue from South Africa take a more relaxed and surreal approach, using their samples and synth pads to create a surreal, otherworldly atmosphere reminiscent of a darker version of the labelmates mind.in.a.box. The product of over 4 years of work, Nico Janse van Rensburg's fantastic debut "Strange Cargo" features some of the best cover art we've seen for some time.

Dependent will release both albums on 28.10 for a "Nice Price" and teaser tracks from both releases will be available on the Dependent website www.dependent.de in short order. You can pre-order both albums for a very special price right now at our shop.
