CHA BOOM CHA - DANCING BRAVE EP
The first recordings by Cha Boom Cha are a mixture of minimalistic, analogue synth pop with a touch of guitar. Some people might say 'Hey, this sounds a bit like The Cure's Japanese Whispers era!', but definitely a different story. From the four songs recorded in 1986 only 'Dancing Brave' made it to a couple of compilations, namely 1987's 'The Jamboree Bag' (Primitive Records, vinyl only) and 1988's 'The Trance compilation' (Being Cut / Primitive Records, cassette only), but in a shortened, more guitar orientated remix. Dead Wax Records brings you these early recordings in the form that they should have appeared back in 1986. The tracks have been transferred and carefully remastered from the original ¬" reel tape by Nicolás Zúñiga. The 'Dancing Brave' 12" EP is presented in a limited, hand numbered edition of 260 copies, housed in a heavy matt finish sleeve with wonderful artwork by David Lanna and includes an insert.


TRACKLISTING:  01. DANCING BRAVE 02. BIG STARS 03. LOVE, SAY IT WITH ME, LOVE! 04. BREATHE IN 05. DANCING BRAVE (1987 REMIX)

FARBLOS - ...UND DER REGEN FALLT
On December 2nd 2012, the one-man project of F. Karnstein known as Farblos published a digital ep containing five home recorded demos through his Bandcamp site. These recordings are the reflection of F. Karnstein's love for the 80's and early 90's new wave / goth scenes. Heavy use of synthesizers and bass guitar are his trade mark. Romantic, melodic, atmospheric tunes to dance and think to. Self-produced, recorded, mixed by this talented, multidisciplinary artist and remastered specifically for vinyl by Nicolás Zúñiga. Compiled for the first time on a physical format and featuring a fantastic bonus exclusive to our release, the previously unheard demo version of 'Never Too Late' that acted as a basis for the later studio recording. '...und der Regen fällt' is presented in a short vinyl run of 200 copies, pressed at 45rpm for best quality and housed in a heavy matt finish sleeve with insert.


TRACKLISTING:  01. NEVER TOO LATE 02. DU FALLST 03. DIURNAL MASQUE 04. WINTERHERZ 05. AUF DER SCHWELLE 06. REISEN

BOYS SAY GO - EASY TO MOVE
'Easy To Move' compiles most of the recorded material by the Boston area minimal synth / new wave band Boys Say Go. Previously known as Slow Children, a guitar driven new wave act, the influence of Depeche Mode made them change name and direction in 1981 and started making synth / wave pop with analogue equipment. The result of the following five years' work was a fantastic array of synth / wave songs, of which only six were actually released. 'Easy To Move' is presented in a limited, hand numbered edition of 200 copies, housed in a heavy matt finish sleeve with printed inner sleeve.


TRACKLISTING:  01. LOVE IS DANGEROUS 02. RAIN IN THE DARK 03. SORRY 04. EASY TO MOVE 05. DO YOU WANNA FUNK 06. JOEY AND MARIA 07. BERLINER KINDL WESSE 08. NU SONG 09. BANG BANG DE BOOGIE (THEN WE DANCE) 10. HUMANITY

FRIO Y VACIO - FRIO Y VACIO
Frío y Vacío is a band based in México City, formed in 2015 by the prolific Angel Kauff (vocals, guitar, synths, drum machine) and Jon Gil (bass, drum machine). Angel also created his more synth orientated Stockhaussen and Isotropía projects, Jon is also half of the Identik Fact project, the other half being his twin brother Jeremy Key who in turn is the guest vocalist in Frío y Vacío's song utodestrucción'. What Frío y Vacío do is a reflection of their name, meaning 'Cold and Void'. They have been influenced by different music genres, from post-punk and goth rock to cold wave and synth punk, all with a classic 80s sound. The lyrics are a consequence of Kauff's personal experiences and feelings. The music, a maelstrom of fast rhythms, sharp guitars, thumping baselines, everything to create an oppressive atmosphere, charged with a high load of electrostatic power that is released in almost every song. Pure, dark energy.


TRACKLISTING:  01. PERDIDOS 02. A TRAVES DE TI 03. AUTODESTRUCCION 04. DESEQUILIBRIO 05. FUE DIFICIL 06. POEMA SINFONICO 07. PARALISIS EN MI CUERPO 08. ANSIA 09. OCULTOS 10. TODO ES MENTIRA 11. DESCONTROL 12. NO SOMOS MAQUINAS

SILENTLY DOWN - SADNESS
In 1992 six songs were self-released on cd by the one-man synth /cold wave outfit SILENTLY DOWN as the 'Sad' minialbum. Even despite 'Sad' gathering excellent feedback and reviews back in the day, the full album project that was planned with a French label had to be finally shelved. More than 20 years later we decided to give it a well-deserved second chance. We called it 'SADNESS' this time to mark a difference, as it's so much more complete than its predecessor. Romantic synth / cold wave, touching but dancey, heavily electronic. Heartfelt, sometimes truly sad lyrics... a sign of those times. The influence of classic bands like Little Nemo, Opéra de Nuit and Invisible Limits are undeniable. A very well crafted album with a great production level. We are extremely proud of bringing you this forgotten jewel, properly mastered for vinyl and presented in an exclusive vinyl run of 150 copies (!!), housed in a heavy matt finish sleeve. Be quick!


TRACKLISTING:  01. DAYS GO BY 02. REFLECTION 03. ALONE 04. LA-HAUT 05. TO DIE HAPPY 06. STRANGE TIMES 07. WELCOME TO A SUICIDE DAY 08. DIE ERBEN DER DUNKELHEIT 09. TIRED TO LIVE 10. GOODBYE
