I almost forgot that there is one new album after the 2-year-plan. The name of the new artist is Takuya Mitarashi, and what he does, is loopy strange sound: Starts off like some kind of safespace… but then really fast turn into a cacophony of sounds, noises, accords and single tones and compounds, finally left off into the delay chamber. Anyway, it’s a hard listen, and I did not find it so remarkable these times. This is CHUNK066.
Meanwhile I combed through my archives, and I found some old stuff from the late 1980s, 1990s and also the early 2000s in my vault. So I put up eight another albums from back of these days:
First there are the Maffick series –
As the original tapes aren’t available anymore, the first is a compilation from these tapes. Strange, noisy industrial ebm like stuff primarily based on samples:
The second is just another compilation of stuff that was never released and some “second best of”:
The third one is another compilation with some re-mixes, more unreleased tracks, but they might be some overlaps with the two first compilations:
From the early 2000s there are two more Arc Maffick albums. Still hard, uncompromising EBM-Industrial beats which were not released properly ever before; now based primarily on synthesizers and drum machines:
The last one from the Maffick series is Coma Coma’s “Coma Coma Boom Boom” which is also ebm and industrial based, but sounds much more friendly:
The second production line is the Coordinator series. Derived from HipHop-Samples, the music turned out into some kind of strange industrial HipHop instrumental tracks which few distorted vocals – this could have been some early proto-vaporwave. For this time there are two albums (released as tapes, edition of 10 or 12 back in 1988 and 1989):
There are still a few in the archive pipe, so stay tuned.
But the future is now more important than these yesteryears. What is definite: there will be another Killjoe album, another Takuya Mitarashi, and maybe Drinkfish will do one. There are more projects, but they just in “planned” stadium, so no definites about the names or the styles.
