As a journalist I think it’s not my goal to only speak about ‘famous’ and/or ‘established’ artists, but still to make you discover new talents. Egoprisme is a French solo-project set up and driven by Jean-Marc Le Droff. The debut album “Among Noise” released on the French label Manic Depression Records revealed a great mix of cold, vintage electronics and typical dark-wave guitar parts. Egoprisme is not innovating, but simply getting us back to the thrilling period of the 80s. It’s a great sonic trip, which got me curious to know a bit more about this project. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: Can you briefly introduce yourself and give us some background information about your music ‘career’ which finally lead to Egoprisme? JM: I am a 39 years old French musician based in Brest, France. I have a classical music background, then I moved to Rock and Electronic music. Egoprisme is a recent solo-project, and the result of various musical experiments and collaborations. It started in my home studio three years ago. Since then, I’ve been performing in many clubs in France and more recently in Berlin and Warsaw. I released two EP’s in 2015 and 2016 on Beko […]

Didier Dewachtere is a Belgian artist from 53 years old. He started to like electronic music at his 15th birthday. It was the good-old time of new-wave music, which still remains a source of inspiration. Later on he discovered artists such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze ao. The ‘Berliner School’ had a real great impact on Didier. It is very obvious, that BySenses was partly taken from a song from Schulze entitled “Sense”. BySenses now has released its third full length entitled “People” on the Belgian label Wool-E-Discs. It’s a beautiful and styled ambient release, which also brought me in touch with the artist. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: BySenSeS has been featured at the Wool-E-Discs series “Belgian NeuMusik”. How would you introduce the sound and approach of BySenSeS and what does it mean to you to be part of this label-series devoted to Belgian ambient music? Didier: My first album came out on an independent label Multidisc. But when Dimitri Idunno told me he would start up a new label Wool- E Discs, pure Belgian music, I thought it would be nice to be part of it. So he said yes and now “People” and a lot of […]

To celebrate the imminent Attrition show in Transylvania, performing their horror film score “Invocation” (released in October 2012), the UK act is giving away the soundtrack as a free download (the CD version will be half price) for the month of August only. The album came 30 years since their dark ambient album “This Death House”. For the occasion Martin Bowes has combined forces with his wife Kerri on this full length movie score, written for the film “G.H.O.S.T” from cult U.S. horror film company Mutantville. You can download it right here: Invocation by ATTRITION Attrition was formed in Coventry, England in 1980 by Martin Bowes and Julia Niblock. The band emerged from the experimental post-punk scene of the early 1980s and, along with other groups such as Throbbing Gristle, Coil, Einstürzende Neubauten, and In the Nursery, greatly contributed to the development of industrial music in the UK.
