Prince, the songwriter, singer, producer, one-man studio band and consummate showman, died Thursday at his residence, Paisley Park, in Chanhassen, Minn., according to a statement from his publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure. He was 57.
2016 can seriously fuck off. RIP.
Simon Shreeve’s (Monic, half of Kryptic Minds) first EP under his own name on Downwards: five tracks of hybrid dark techno mutations. Highly recommended.
Tony Conrad, an experimental filmmaker, avant-garde musician and university educator who in the 1960s was a central figure in a flowering Lower Manhattan art movement, died on Saturday at a hospice in Cheektowaga, N.Y., near Buffalo. He was 76.
Whoa this new split 12″ from Michael Wollenhaupt aka Ancient Methods and Theologian. The AM cut, “German Love”, is the bomb here: “And she just kinda laughed and said: you don’t know anything about German love. Did you know that?” Whatever this Wollenhaupt dude is smoking or ingesting, please do us all a favor and keep it up.

HEADLESS HORSEMAN 2015
Debut full length proper from the mysterious Berlin-based producer Headless Horseman just dropped on his self-titled label and it is well worth checking. Dark, raw and rumbling industrial techno transmission of the highest caliber.
Here’s the recording of Casual Violence’s debut live PA at Institut fuer Zukunft in Leipzig, Germany, from earlier this year (FB event listing here). The sound quality is top notch so that means this one’s a keeper. Grab the FLAC below and enjoy.
