FUKTE / LES LAPLACIENS / LE VELENOISER / NODOLBY / DONA FERENTES
- cLOUD BACCHANALIA (C90) : a 5-ways split cassette commemorates the upcoming tour of March 2018: almost 90 minutes of drilling frequencies, crazy detuned tape loops, synths, static noise madness...
Everyone of the projects involved was asked for some last-minute unreleased tracks to compile this sonic portrait, which is delivered exclusively on the tour gigs.
Residual copies go to the artists and their friends!
I think not so many will last!

Co-released with BissoMultimedia, Dokuro, and Toxic Ind. in an edition of 60 copies!

GELO EXPRESS - surgelati magazine (C30) : Our hero Gelo Express decides to come back to Italy dedicating this new tape to this nation, and more specifically to Italian TV.
Surgelati Magazine is a magical and hilarious blend of old commercial jingles from the 80s, afternoo series' openings musical interludes that used to play in the many evening shows, songs, taken from cartoons that used to be aired in the morning before going to school, sounds coming from the weather forecast on TV, old Italian songs that we have never forgotten, with those choruses that used to get stuck in the head forever, and much melancholy tied to the faded memories of those afternoons spent together with our best friend: the TV!
Limited to 30 copies, different tape colors!

DEPRAVED SENSITIVITY - untitled (C18) : another eerie tape of demented noise solo; one side is cut-and-paste from deranged internet sources, and outrageous noises mocking sordid italian magazines and ripped radio tunes...side B is lo-fi crackling noises coming from an exhausted computer, tapes and contact mics... Another piece of nothing coming from the soul of the driest marshes here around....
Edition of 30, recycled sprayed tapes...
