Zwischenwelt Interview +

Catch the cold wave. Just thought I’d add to all the hype surrounding the upcoming Zwischenwelt album, which has supposedly already been describd as ‘something like Nico meets Fad Gadget’ or even ‘cold wave for zola jesus fans’!), with some more preview information for you. Said to be out now on 28th Feb on Rephlex.

Firstly and of most interest, there is an interview with Beta Evers about it all at MNML SSGS

Samples of all the tracks from it over at Norman Records, nice.
and Juno

Some positive reviews already filed here (any chance of a copy being sent my way?)

The Arts Desk
Alt Sounds

Also some nice new pictures of Zerkalo live at DNA club from 5th Feb 2011.
An interview with Victoria Lukas and an interesting mix can be heard at this French radio website.

For the DRL archive here’s the Rephlex Press Release in full.
FEATURED IN FACT MAGAZINE'S TOP 10 ACTS TO MAKE A SPLASH IN 2011! : “An international trio of female artists making icy techno-pop inspired by parapsychology, aided and abetted by Heinrich Mueller of Drexciya and Dopplereffekt. What's not to like?”

Rephlex's biggest crossover album for some time, this record will find favour as much amongst fans of the current crop of cold wave and nu-goths such as Zola Jesus etc, old goth chanteuses such as Nico, as well as Detroit Electro heads and fans of early Mute Records electronics.

Zwischenwelt explore the field of parapsychology with a dark and twisted vision of cold wave electronics. Parapsychology investigates paranormal psychic abilities using scientific methods, such as used in traditional psychology (observation, survey etc.) and quantitative empirical methodologies such as used in sociology, psychology and pedagogy. Parapsychological phenomenon are often also called Psi-Phenomenon. The two main fields of parapsychological research are Psychokinesis, the ability of the mind to influence objects without involvement of currently known physical energies and without physical contact between the acting subject and the reacting object (for example telekinesis and psychic healing) and Extrasensory Perception (ESP), the ability to acquire information by (psychic) sources currently unexplained by science (best known examples are clairvoyance, precognition and telepathy).

It is this field that the group Zwischenwelt (German for ‘in-between world’) look to discover. Combining the talents of former Drexciya member Heinrich Mueller, New York DJ/producer Susana Correia, Spanish producer Penelope Lopez and vocalist Beta Evers (who operates a number of German labels, including Kommando 6), Zwischenwelt’s ‘Paranormale Aktivitat’ was created largely through the passing of parts back and forth across the web.

The opening ‘Apparition’ starts with an ethereal, ghost-like feel that permeates this haunting electronic encounter whilst ‘Clairvoyant’ pairs a stripped down electro beat to distant echoes of melody in a half-remembered state. Tracks such as ‘Enigmata’ and ‘Telekinesis’ add a strange swing to the avant-garde approach whilst ‘Diapsiquia’ and ‘Materialization’ are eerie cinematic moodscapes that push the groups experimental reach. Finally the pulsating rhythm of ‘Telemetric’ is perhaps the most obvious electro-power surge for the dancefloor.
