Connexion Bizarre radio show @ Radio Zero
The Connexion Bizarre radio show can be streamed every Friday at 23:00 GMT and Wednesdays at 10:00 GMT from http://www.radiozero.pt/.
Avsky - Silent Decay
Avsky is Norwegian and his first album, "Silent Decay", manages to create almost arctic atmospheres, yet still make them sound warm to a certain extent. Because of this the CD knows quite a nice duality (read: tension). Or perhaps this should be considered a schizoid defect?
Cenotype - Origins
Origins" is very aptly titled, hinting at the influences behind the act in general as well as the within the record which, despite its faults, is a great release, working on the proven formula of solid, industrial rhythmic noise, with enough of Cenotype's personal twist so as not to sound unoriginal.
Pure H - Signia
The various interpretations of "Signia" are each supplied with a unique title (presumably contributed by the remixing artist), and although they span a variety of genres, the remixes exhibit a startling homogeneity in sound and, in some respects, style.
Photophob - Circadian Rhythms
Photophob's music has an upbeat yet abstract quality set to playful synth lines that harks back to the early days of "intelligent dance music" and the heyday of labels like Rephlex and Warp. Although "Circadian Rhythms" initially appears to be a homage to classic IDM, it soon takes a new direction.
Storybox - No Dancing Allowed
If you are a fan of the music from the early era of electronic pop music (circa 1980-83) then perhaps this might be worth looking into. However, I can't help but think that if you are not going to give the sound a slight update, then maybe some things should be left as they were.
Connexion Bizarre Pins
State your indivuality and rhythmical reverberation with this set of five one-inch Connexion Bizarre buttons! One featuring the main C.B. logo, three featuring the alternative mascots/logos and one featuring the Connexion Bizarre "reverberate rhythmically" motto.
