01100110 releases debut EP “Seaside Hollows” and launches record label “Elektroakustische Tanzmusik.”

BERLIN, 2019-Sep-19 — Octiive

The emerging talent techno producer and DJ named 01100110 (#zeroelevenzero) has released his first EP, “Seaside Hollows.” It has been proudly published as an independent release on his newborn record label “Elektroakustische Tanzmusik.” Shadowy, vibrant, and electrifying, “Seaside Hollows” showcases 01100110 as one of the most intriguingly dark techno artists of the year so far and promises he has plenty more where that came from.

Berlin’s 01100110 cites as main artistic influences dark ambient music from the 90’s and 00’s and gothic-adjacent dance music such as the industrial, EBM, darkwave and aggrotech subgenres. Compelled by the unique vibe of Berlins techno scene, it was clear from the first moment that this is the music he wants to make. 01100110’s personal sound brings together elements from each of these influences and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s techno fans have heard before. With an emphasis on subtlety, emergent space and resonant builds, “Seaside Hollows” by 01100110 is bound to stick in your ear.

Asked about the underlying concepts of his EP “Seaside Hollows,” 01100110 says, “This EP is basically a study of sound and synesthesia. Sound, for me, is like a fabric that you can touch and feel, or a texture that you can look at. With this EP I want to invite my listeners to a journey and evoke a world of imagination.”

As a DJ, 01100110 has been developing for himself a sound that he would label as “Doom Techno,” based on his roots in gothic music, far away from the “oldschool” techno sound. Hence, his style can sometimes get almost disturbingly dark, but always in a way that it feels empowering to dance and moves with a strong driving force directed towards the audience. “In data sciences, the numbers 0 and 1 resemble the states ‘false’ and ‘true,’ and there is nothing in-between.“, he says, “This is reflected in the digital capitalist society we are currently living in, as the individual is often reduced to its capacity of reproducting capital. And there seems to be no way out. But I want to give listeners and dancers a moment of tranquility apart from their everyday lives.”

01100110 goes on to explain that he uses his music to focus on what lies in-between “true” and “false.
He considers this a space of imagination. “With my productions and DJ-sets I am constantly seeking new forms and ways to expand the scope of techno music by seeking more complex rhythms, compositional forms, and sonic landscapes. By deconstructing and expanding the forms of techno music I want to inspire my audience to attentive listening, new ways of dancing, and ultimately new ideas. I want to set in motion not only the body, but also the mind.”

“Seaside Hollows” by 01100110 (#zeroelevenzero) is now available on the Bandcamp of his record label “Elektroakustische Tanzmusik,” as well as on Beatport, Spotify and more than 600 other digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, techno fans.

Johnathan|Christian releases new single ‘Hurt’ feat. Thomas Gabriel

The songwriter and producer of modern goth and darkwave known as Johnathan|Christian has released their latest official single, “Hurt.”

Johnathan|Christian’s “Hurt” also features the talents of Thomas Gabriel, Clause Larsen (Leæther Strip) and multi-media artist Victor Devilbliss AKA Michael Bann (Advent Sleep).

The single has been released concurrently with the “Leæther Strip” and “Michael Bann” remixes for an approximate total listening time of 13 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Sonorous, melancholy, and entirely heartfelt, “Hurt” showcases Johnathan|Christian as one of the most intriguing modern goth and darkwave artists of the year so far and promises that they has plenty more where that came from.

Darkwave and death rock’s Johnathan|Christian cites as main artistic influences Depeche Mode, Joy Division Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Mission, Muse, Radiohead, Christian Death, Killing Joke, Skinny Puppy, and Leæther Strip. Johnathan|Christian’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on passion, vocal delivery and instrumentation, “Hurt” by Johnathan|Christian has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Hurt,” Johnathan|Christian writes: “While Johnathan|Christian were working on their latest album, Henry Vaccaro Jr. reached out to propose a collaboration with a family member of a very special musical clan.

My father was a close friend of Johnny Cash, whom he had met through his role with the Kramer Guitar Company which grew to become the largest American Manufacturer of electric guitars in the 1980s. My dad was a huge Johnny Cash fan and brought the entire band guitars in 1976 and our families have been friends ever since. I first met his oldest grandson, Thomas [Gabriel] when we were children, and now watching him break out on his own, I was blown away by his uncanny vocal resemblance to his grandfather. His phrasing, tone, spirit, drive and humility are all these remarkable traits passed down from the Man in Black. I was already a fan of Johnathan|Christian and when I first heard Thomas covering ‘Hurt’ I thought between both parties, they would not only pay homage to Thomas’ grandfather but also to the original Trent Reznor version.”

Their current official bio relates: “For Johnathan|Christian members Johnathan Mooney and Tiger Koehn, coming up with something that would remotely do any kind of justice to both originals was a daunting task.

‘Trent Reznor’s “Hurt” was such an emotional song that told a very dark tale,’ says Mooney, ‘and then you have Johnny Cash’s version and that was like a huge kick in the stomach that just left you speechless in it’s rawness.’

For this to work, it was important for Johnathan|Christian to tell the story in a different musical light.

‘While Johnny Cash sings about all that’s left, I felt that grandson Thomas, whom while also had his own share of demons, is now on the beginning of a journey.’ Says Mooney. ‘An “Empire of dirt” is not only what we end with, but it’s also all we start with.’”

Johnathan|Christian’s previous releases such as 2013’s “Beautiful Hideous” have garnered more than 2.5 million streams.

Hurt” by Johnathan|Christian on the LABEL label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, modern goth and darkwave fans.
