Terminé – Sideways

Terminé

Terminé

Finnish duo Terminé is a collab between DJ/producer Anton Sonin and singer/songwriter, Ben Andreas.

Together the pair has created an EP that sits at the intersection of indie-rock and dance music, self-described as “new-wave indie-rock meets the infamous Panorama Bar at Berghain…influenced by the moody and epic atmosphere of french indie music, combined with 4/4 beats of kinda early-morning afterhours somewhere in East Berlin”.

Their new EP is called ‘Sideways’. The title track is full of echoing guitar riffs and a repetitive xylophonic bassline, with glimpses of tropical-house for good measure.

Their five-track EP is out now via Youth Control.

Roisto – Apart In Love

Roisto

Following on from the innovative video for TJH87‘s ‘Good Life‘ Feat. Gamble & Burke, is Youth Control‘s next release;  ‘Apart In Love’ by Finnish producer Roisto.

An electronic creature by nature, Roisto hides away in the dark forests of northernmost Finland. Despite Roisto meaning ‘villain’ in Finnish, the only evil deed carried out by this producer is creating his own stylist brand of disco in his studio and taking inspiration from old analog synths, tape machines, and 12” disco records.

You wouldn’t be blamed for thinking Roisto hails from France. ‘Apart In Love’ is so nu-disco, it conjures up images of a younger Daft Punk dancing in the streets of Paris with Chromeo and Chic as backing dancers.
