Chicago-based Cyanotic, part band, part machine, has been producing a hybrid of heavily metalized electro-industrial jams, cheekily referred to as “angry robot music”, since forming in 2002, a redigitized representation of Chicago’s lineage of dark counterculture. Equal parts danceable chaos and synthetic precision, Cyanotic has been crossing boundaries and touring heavily with the likes of Front Line Assembly, Skinny Puppy, Dillinger Escape Plan and many more while building a strong core fanbase across the US + Europe
Klack is the “New New Beat” project of Madison, Wisconsin’s Eric Oehler and Matt Fanale. Klack released Synthesizer as a one-off collaboration in 2017, receiving significant acclaim and fanfare amongst fans of early EBM and New Beat, and also from the Berlin techno community. Klack went to work and two months later released their debut EP ‘Do You Klack?’ to even more acclaim.
Nevada Hardware’s debut EP, No Future, has been described by I Die:You Die as “classic cyber-rave samples and passes meets modern club programming” and by Rafał Sowiński of Popmoderna as a “multi-threaded, intelligent, and self-aware album”.
