Tokyo, 28.09.2018   Goth-Trad, Masayuki Imanishi, and Die Suck are Eartaker. The band formed in 2017.  BDNLP004   Harmonics  is their debut album. This album is a composition that exists beyond doom metal, beyond noise, beyond drone. We do not dare to categorize it.  Selected Press: ‘ A refreshing concoction of oppressive atmospheres on slow industrial beats, the noise mastery of Imanishi, and the monstrous, extreme metal-inspired (but much weirder) vocal performances of MC Die Suck.’   Secretthirteen   ‘ Crushing delivery of doom metal and industrial electronics from Goth Trad’s Eartaker trio with Die Suck and Masayuki Imanishi, coughed up in prime style.’    Boomkat    ‘ The Japanese trio employ dense atmospheric noise and Diesuck’s low scream for a sound that is even darker and more disconcerting than Goth-Trad’s most vicious productions. ’  Factmag    ‘At its most punishing, Harmonics tangles the group in motheaten yarns, all three performers desperate to burst away from each other.’  The Wire (from its printed issue No. 416)  More Press:  Electronic Beats ,  Resident Advisor ,  Boomkat ,  Japanvibe ,  Tinymixtapes ,  Clubbingspain

Shanghai, 07.09.2018   Eli Osheyack is an American musician, that lives and works in Shanghai, China. His serialist, deconstructive compositions derive from his involvement with punk, no wave and industrial music. He collaborates with installation artists, choreographers, filmmakers and fashion designers.   BDNX022   Sadomodernism  was his first release on Bedouin Records.  Sadomodernism  is a technical term in film theory that describes the intended sadistic voyeurism of the viewer. Osheyacks work on this album is sadomodernistic, as it assigns common musical motives to a concrete composition. The recipient creates autonomously a permeable soundtrack that naturalizes and synthesizes his references to the musical motives. His deconstruction alienates the common reference from the self. This process also derives from Osheyacks discussion on the Brechtchian alienation effect.  Shanghai-based multimedia artist Dre Romero made a music video for  Bordertown,  which is the 8th track of the album.  Selected Press: ` Bangers like these won't have the crowd screaming in pain so much as screaming for more.`   Resident Advisor   ‘ Here is an album by an artist which is almost cinematic by nature and design. Brutal and devious yet with an intriguing undercurrent which reeks of emotional twists and turns. ‘  The Ransom Note   ‘ Osheyack is one of the most important harbingers of a new age of hardcore, steeped in an experimental environment and mixed with various other spices. ’  Secretthirteen   More Press:  AQNB ,  Mixmag ,  Spike ,  Radii ,  Dazed ,  Boomkat
