Susan Gittes Releases Dark New EP, ‘Alone,’ Via Bishops Bloc Records!

Elusive Electronic Music Producer Susan Gittes has released her debut, down techno-industrial EP, Alone, via Bishops Bloc Records.

“Susan Gittes did it! Introducing one of the hardest, darkest artists we could find with one slowed down, dark industrial techno stomper and one what we would call soundtrack-esque industrial nightmare.” – Bishops Bloc Records

Download ‘Alone’ Online:
beatport | iTunes

Slowed down techno and industrial sounds drenched in darkness. Nobody knows anything about Susan Gittes other than what we hear in her music’; its our best guess that she is a psychopathic killer on the loose, with a sampler and a drum machine. Sometimes heavy on percussion while other times heavy on the synths and soundscapes, Susan Gittes definitely knows how to create a feeling. Regardless of who Susan Gittes is, this release is already getting some major underground techno support from the likes of D.A.V.E. the Drummer aka Henry CullenCorvad and Fear The Priest. When contacted about the tracks and her process in music making Susan only replied with “…when i make songs I’m basically acting on impulses, what results is often emotional leftovers from my last seduction.”

Trash Deity Tease Out Second Glimpse of Upcoming ‘Run 4 Your Lies!’ Album

Industrial Rock project Trash Deity, the duo of My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult’s Groovie Mann and Blue Eyed Christ’s John D. Norten, have released the second taste of their upcoming Run 4 Your Lies! album in the form of the single and Official Music Video for the title track. Originally premiered on Paste Magazine, “Run 4 Your Lies!” was directed by Neil Kull.

“Run 4 Your Lies!” is a maniac chant to raise the bored to Trash the dancefloor to create some electricity for the body dancing next to them! – Groovie Mann

“Run 4 Your Lies!” is the Chaos and Confusion of our Modern Times wrapped in a Hypnotic Industrial Dance Groove with a Throbbing Bass Pounding to the Universal Beat! – John D. Norten

The combination of their shared Wax Trax! history, the experiences of their divergent musical paths, along with Groovie’s trademark crooning growls over Norten’s polished soundscapes, all come together to create an auditory experience recalling both the history of the industrial music movement and the future possibilities of the genre! – Paste Magazine

Click HERE to buy “Run 4 Your Lies!” on iTunes!

Hailing from Los Angeles with roots in the legendary Chicago Wax Trax!scene comes the new duo Trash Deity. Combining the chaos and energy of the classic Wax Trax! sound updated with hard and modern production, Trash Deity is Groovie Mann aka Franke N. Nardiello (My Life With The Thrill Kill Kultfrontman/writer) and accomplished music producer and industrial artist JDNaka John D. Norten (Blue Eyed Christ). Their debut Single, “Finger on a Trigger”, combines classic Groovie Mann vocals and cryptic lyrics with an infectious heavy electronic/guitar groove benefitting from JDN’s studio experience mixing and engineering major artists. The accompanying Music Video is comprised entirely of manipulated shots of paintings from the twisted imagination and eccentric mind of Groovie Mann. The debut 4 song EP, Run 4 Your Lies!, will follow soon.

I think the forthcoming EP is a really exciting representation of Groovie Mann and I experimenting and discovering what our sound is as Trash Deity. It’s an eclectic EP because we weren’t locked into a sound or expectation from our previous projects. One song is electronic for the clubs with a pounding bass line and signature Groovie Mann maniacal vocal chants, then another is a sexy dirty strip club anthem. Each song has it’s own identity, but the EP still sounds totally cohesive and chaotic at the same time…just like us! – JDN

What was the earliest influence in your life that led you to a music career?

the vibrations from my mother’s record player that she kept under my crib. She was 19. – Groovie Mann

The defining moment for me was my first concert, Duran Duran, when I was in 6th grade. I looked around and thought…”That’s what I want”. It was a very powerful image at that time and age, Nick Rhodes with the Fairlight Sampling Keyboard and the futuristic sights and sounds. The music and lyrics were very mysterious inviting me into their world and I was very intrigued. – JDN

Nardiello’s informally structured and yet deeply storied career began with his first band, Special Affect, including Marti Sorenson & Harry Rushakoff (Concrete Blonde) with Al Jourgensen (Ministry) on guitar. Shortly after, he moved to London working with Simon Raymonde of Cocteau Twins with post-punk band Drowning Craze recording a John Peel session in 1982. While touring with Ministry in 1986, he met and began working with Buzz McCoy(Marston Daley) to write a film titled Hammerhead Housewife and the Thrill Kill Kult, which was never filmed but ultimately evolved into TKK and an EP released with Wax Trax! Records. Over the next nearly 30 years, Groovie Mann has established his iconic reputation through multiple releases with TKK and contributed songs to several movie soundtracks, even appearing in the 1994 cult classic film The Crow. He’s also established himself as an accomplished painter in the LA art community. His uniquely abstract style offers a further peak into the mind and art of Groovie Mann and are sold to fans around the world.

What would you consider to be the ‘crossroads’ that directly led to you actively pursuing a musical career?

My Insanity. – Groovie Mann

I would say my first Blue Eyed Christ record deal with KK Records in Belgium right out of High School for Leaders + Followers. It legitimized what I was doing for the first time and made me realize people outside of my bedroom studio may be interested in what I was doing. – JDN

John D. Norten also emerged from the 1990s Chicago Industrial scene as the leader of Blue Eyed Christ. The debut album Leaders + Followers was released internationally on Belgians classic EBM/Industrial label KK Records while still in his teens. Over the next few years, Blue Eyed Christ was featured on several prominent compilations and played the prestigious New Music Seminar in 1992 at the Limelight with Clock DVA and Chemlab. Blue Eyed Christ continued playing visceral live shows throughout the 90s and Norten continued recording at Chicago Trax Recording Studios working with established musicians and engineers from Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, etc. In 1996, Norten relocated to Los Angeles and has established himself as an in demand mixer and engineer for many of the biggest artists in the world including The Black Eyed PeasPrinceCeeLo Green, and Lady GaGa.

How are you inspired to start a song and how does that develop from writing to composition, recording, and completion? What was the process for this project?

Jump into it -improvise with & without notes, laugh cry & argue with the producer. – Groovie Mann

I usually start with the drums and music, but really anything can be the creative spark. When I first met with Groovie Mann he came over and I played him a bunch of instrumental tracks I had and he choose the ones that inspired him the most lyrically. He would write to them while he paints at home and then come over with notebooks full of ideas and inspirational goodies. Once we wrote the lyrics and recorded his vocals, I’d go back in and add more music and elements and we’d arrange that into the song. The whole process was very organic. – JDN

The four tracks making up Run 4 Your Lies! ultimately reflect both their shared roots as well as their unique, individual approaches to their craft. Groovie Mann’s spontaneous and poetic lyrical reactions to JDN’s carefully constructed song productions makes for a compelling mix of something new with enough of a nod to the past sure to please the old school fans and the popular emerging newer generation as well.

for all the emptiness Announce New EP And Video

for_all_the_emptiness_promo_shots_-_generic_set_01_-_03

for_all_the_emptiness_-_mt_ep_-_coverDark Electro artists for all the emptiness have released their new EP mt this week. mt marks the third release by for all the emptiness. mt was produced and mixed by Sebastian Komor (Icon of Coil).

The video for the first single “seduced by a disease” can be seen below:

About for all the emptiness

for the all emptiness originally started as an idea by vocalist/composer jonathan kaplan. After viewing Apoptygma Berzerk’s live DVD APBL98 and seeing front man Stephan Groth go into the crowd after a performance and how much their music affected them, it showed how much art can make the world a better place. jonathan took his passion for truth, science, logic, and critical thinking and based their music around those principles.

In 2011 for all the emptiness released their debut album axioms . It was produced by Yone of Decoded Feedback and it served as the foundation for everything to come. axioms was intentionally minimal and themed around being anti-religious, which they felt was a destructive and wasteful force in the world. In 2012 a remix version of axioms was released. It featured remixes by Assemblage 23, Beborn Beton, Decoded Feedback and more. To help promote the release they went on an North America tour with artists Die Sektor, The Gothsicles, and Deviant UK.

Precious Child Releases NSFW Video for “My Little Problem” & “Phantom” Off of ‘TRAPPED’ EP

george

Cinematic Progressive Industrial Artist Precious Child has released a highly politically charged, NSFW Official Music Video for the single “My Little Problem” off of his TRAPPED EP. Directed by Brazilian born and LA based artist Cade, “My Little Problem” was originally premiered on Paste Magazine.

“My Little Problem” is a song and music video about self discovery, synthetic nature, and sexuality. It is a collaboration between Precious Child and the director Cade.

“This video explores the current pop culture fascination with freeing ourselves from the decay and pain that is contingent with inhabiting a physical body. The question is, if technology allows us to transcend into conscious machines, unable to feel pain, will we feel anything at all but a pressing sense of existentialism? Vaporwave, goth, emo, and kitsch culture were an influence to this project as well as campy sci fi thrillers like David Cronenberg’s Videodrome.” – CADE

Precious also released “Phantom,” an experiential music video that illuminates the protagonist in “My Little Problem,” which was itself premiered on AntiHero Magazine:

TRAPPED is the 3rd studio album of Precious Child. Recorded in Los Angeles, TRAPPED is an EP featuring reinterpretations of tracks from Bloody Knees and ESCAPE as well as original tracks.

“Many of my songs have a common ancestor; when I write, the song I am writing often inspires another, and another, and another. Old ideas inspire new songs and new songs make songs out of old ideas. TRAPPED references these ouroboroses of creativity. I have been in the studio for many months working on an LP and this EP happened amidst the recording for the LP. See what I’m getting at? Hard to tell where the head and the tail begins. We have a desperate need for a reason to exist and art is my reason.” – Precious Child

Track List:
1. Phantom
2. My Little Problem (Violet Door)
3. Entity
4. No Such Thing as Time
5. The Past (Be Me Again)
6. The Past (Instrumental)
