Die Selektion is a German cold wave band from Stuttgart, whose characteristic sound is known for its rhythmic compositions of a combination of strong male vocals, synthesizers, bass and trumpet. After the end of May 2017, after a 6-year wait their second album was released – Deine Stimme Ist Der Ursprung Jeglicher Gewalt.
Minuit Machine is a dark electro/new wave duo, created in Paris in 2013. Hélène de Thoury, who founded the project, produces mesmerising sounds and mixes them with dark electronic beats. Amandine Stioui completes Hélène’s music with melancholic vocal lines and engaged lyrics. The duo often describes their music as “disrupted” wave, with various influences from the 80s and the 90s. Hélène and Amandine’s music is rather singular and sometimes hard to label as their music background is very different. In October 2013, Minuit Machine self-released its first EP Blue Moon with their hit song Agoraphobia. With its heady melody and its striking electronic drums, it’s one of Minuit Machine’s most famous song and also Minuit Machine’s first music video. One year later, they released their first LP Live & Destroy on the French established label Desire. Concurrently with this release, the duo started touring all around Europe, spreading their powerful and poignant wave. In November 2015, Minuit Machine released their second LP Violent Rains on the German label No Emb Blanc. The first single, Battles, promoted with a music video, contributed in building Minuit Machine’s very personal identity. Violent Rains received several laudatory reviews and was described as a “synthetic masterpiece”. After a three-year break, Hélène and Amandine are back on track. They’re going to release their third LP called Infrarouge on May 13th 2019.
