Bolder – Hostile Environment. First album released on Editions Mego. Vinyl & download. Release date: 3rd March 2014. Order here.

Bolder – Pure: morbid funk & sludge beats, Goner: sludge funk & morbid beats

Bolder is Martin Maischein who used to record as Henrich at Hart on Position Chrome and Peter Votava also known as Pure who has recorded previously for Mego and was half of Ilsa Gold. With their combined background in electronic music of all angles Bolder introduces a significant proposition to the current experimental electronic boom. Blurring the lines between industrial, techno, dub, ambient and narrative forms, the work on Bolder’s debut presents a dance amongst the abyss, a world where organic rhythms provide the path amongst a swarm of foreboding electronics. Herein lurks an atmosphere where hostile electronics weigh the hope and paranoia of today’s climate. One humans listen is another humans challenge.

„No End Of Vinyl“ CD with remixes of the.end.of.vinyl E.P. (Mego, 1999) on Crónica released. Remixes by: @c, Arturas Bumsteinas, Cindytalk, Christoph de Babalon, Current 909 vs. Pure, Goner, Jorge Sanchez-Chiong, Opcion, Pita, Rashad Becker. Plus free digital rerelease of the original EP.

“The End of Vinyl”
Crónica’s 78th edition presents Pure’s classic the.end.of.vinyl, originally released by Mego in 1999. Long out of stock, this was Pure’s first output after the switch from analogue hardware to software and also his first work focusing on the pure listening experience instead of dance music.

the.end.of.vinyl is not a manifesto against vinyl records, rather a mention to the sources used in the composition, taken from various run out grooves. Fourteen years past, these two pieces are now redistributed in digital format and are the starting point for the ten compositions in the upcoming release No End of Vinyl.

Remix for Ab-Hinc on Widerstand Records.
