        B2      Dominatrix, Beatmaster

Dominatrix is a synth-pop/electro project from the 80's, best remembered for their
1984 club hit, "The Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight" The brains behind this New york city
based project is producer/songwriter Stuart Argabright, whose other projects over
the years have included Ike Yard, Black Rain, the Futants, the Death Comet Crew,
the Dystopians, and the Voodooists.
The Story behind this project began one night when a young Stuart met a beautiful
mysterious older women in a corvette while hitchhiking. They became friends, spending
nights at her East Side apartment, getting high and listening to Bowie records. After
Argabright noticed the bull whips and manacles hanging in her closet, it became
apparent that his friend’s occupation was chaining up, whipping, and torturing
upscale Manhattan businessmen (who were very willing victims and had the credit card
bills to prove it). This project came to life because of his sincere admiration and
respect for professional dominatrixes.
This is a limited edition on white vinyl with un-released tracks from Dominatrix.

All music by Stuart Argabright. Dominatrix music publishing DenseMedia Domain (ASCAP).
Vocals for Dominatrix Party & Beatmaster by Barbara Von Traumer.

abandoned warehouses to Lounge, alongside respected artists like Daze, Chiara
Kickdrum, Sleep D & OAKE (Berlin). Elisabeth Dixon’s debut LP, entitled “LP1, is

This is the first US pressing of the most excellent 2nd album by Jessica93. Paris
native Geoff Lapporte better known as Jessica93 delivers a stellar second full length
record following up his critically acclaimed 2013 release "Who Cares".
Seamlessly weaving shoegaze and cold wave together on Rise, Geoff's songs create a new
sound that feels entirely classic as well. Utilizing hypnotic loops of guitar and bass
over heavy drum machine tracks Rise is stands out as one of the best releases of 2015.
This pressing is limited to 503 copies and available in three different colors of
vinyl (cloudy clear and black, cloudy clear and opaque red, and black). This US ed.
artwork designed by Geoff is limited to this edition. This is a co-release with
Seattle based label Not Just Religious Music.

Erstwhile is one of the monikers under which Kevin Jansen (Svartvit, Clamor, Qualm,
Ratteknaeghen) presents his auditory output. This time around the sounds are rooted
in tradition, paying hommage to the greats of the eighties through minimal power
electronics dirges. Thematically the project deals with the fragility embedded in our
everyday lives. On this first cassette Erstwhile tries to come to terms with all that
is lost over time instead of dwelling in faux nostalgia of 'better' times.

Bead is the most recent moniker of J.R (TERMFIX), making analog techno with muffled
industrial edge. "CORRODE" is his first label affiliated release. Above the drums,
the vast majority of sounds are made from oiled up, lubed up, mic'ed up latex rubber
sheet (there is a collection of 303 lines and voice samples). Over the course of
24 hours this was manipulated and recorded in an attempt to immortalise a simple
object that has so many aspects. Scattered throughout are also a few recordings of
machinery from his workshop. He has recently begun to take knife making seriously,
so while making a few blades has recorded the output of the grinders and saws. It was
another way of adding personality without using his body directly.

This collection of songs also has two remixes by MILITARY POSITION and SYSTEM BODY.
Both artists take the track "Vial" and turn it into their own mutant. MILITARY
POSITION completely dominates the noise below while SYSTEM BODY takes "Vial" to
another world entirely. Ed. of 100 copies

I.O.D.  XV      ASCETIC : EVERYTHING IS BECOMING-REMIXES                12"     04.2017
A.      1.      Utterings (Ancient Methods Remix)               06:35

        4.      Exegesis (Luna Violenta Remix)                  05:44

The remixed tracks from Ascetic’s second album-Everything Is Becoming-are a collision
between industrial techno, EBM influenced bass lines, doom and dark ambient. Four
Berlin based artists: Ancient Methods, Phase Fatale, Unhuman & Luna Violenta offer
their take on the two opening tracks ‘Utterings’ and ‘Exegesis’ from the album.
Roared vocals, guitar both jagged, creepy and ambient, live drums and samples are
all melted down and reformed into at times recognizable and at times wholly alien
compositions, Ancient Methods, Phase Fatale and Unuhuman offer different approaches
to techno punishment while Luna’s interpretation is a cacophonous build that explodes
into sonic abstraction. This EP is a perfect example of what Berlin does so well,
where genres that share aesthetic values feedback, overlap and inspire.

Alchemic Harm is a raw, ritualistic ambient project, newly moving to Instruments of
Discipline. After a self-titled EP featuring collaboration with Lower Order Ethics
and past live appearances with her at Contort and Collegium Hungaricum, 2017 sees
that EP expanded to full-length album, as a new chapter begins for the venture. Behind
the shadowy sounds is Peter Kirn, best known for leading platforms for technological
expression (the daily CDM at cdm.link, MusicMakers Hacklab) and a diverse range of
musical projects (Establishment Records, his Imaski side project, and serving as half
of techno duo NERKKIRN).
