Regis, Silent Servant and Shifted all remix The KVB for a forthcoming Immaterial Visions Remixes 12″ from Cititrax.
You have to wade through so much carefully orchestrated bullshit and content driven waste dressed up as music that it’s refreshing to come across a band whose ambitions seem a whole lot purer than striving to become the latest bit of sync bait. The KVB are one such band; the vehicle of the wonderfully named Klaus Von Barrel and synth player Kat Day, the KVB exist to put out records and play gigs and they do both of these functions with consummate ease.
London duo The KVB have teased their forthcoming album for Cititrax with a new video for lead track “Shadows”.
London duo The KVB will release an album on Minimal Wave offshoot Cititrax in late February – with a rather illustrious looking remix EP to follow.
Beau Wanzer and Elon Katz’s Streetwalker project will release a debut album, Future Fusion, in February 2013 on Minimal Wave offshoot Cititrax.
Minimal Wave sister label Cititrax have just announced details of a 7″ release from ex-Crystal Castles drummer Cam Findlay’s Kontravoid project.
To the casual observer of Minimal Wave operations, it might seem odd for the Brooklyn label’s lesser spotted offshoot Cititrax to be releasing the new album from Innergaze aka Jason Letkiewicz and his girlfriend, the audio-visual artist Aurora Halal – or indeed, any music of the new variety. Cititrax was seemingly borne out of Veronica Vasicka’s desire to give a proper platform for obscure 80s sounds which didn’t necessarily correlate with the Minimal Wave aesthetic – as on the Italo disco of Sylvi Foster’s If You Are and the 1984 proto Chicago house of Dance Party Album from Z Factor. However the label has dipped their toes in contemporary music, a fact possibly overlooked at first glance thanks to the resolutely authentic 80s neon hue of Medio Mutante’s Inestable.
