ELECTRONIC EMERGENCIES in 2018
Dear (virtual) friends,
In 2018 we will continue to bring you electronic darkness, melancholic
waveforms and incinerating beats.
We are very happy to see that our wavey electrix and disco noir are
touching a nerve with many of you in the underground electronic music
community that we love so dearly.
We can’t thank the artists on our releases enough for their
never-ending inspiration and love.
Our first release in 2018 will be our 20th overall. Returning to
Electronic Emergencies after his first EP with us in 2016, dear friend Borgie from Sarajevo, Bosnia, is
rocketing himself far beyond planet Italo with the Kosmostrator on Venus EP, available
from 22 January 2018.
Next up is Arcanes, an
8-track mini-album and the debut of young Parisian producer NiKiT. The atmosphere of his
tracks reminds us of early dark electro, is dubby and danceable as
hell. Arcanes will be released mid-February 2018.
After that, we cross the ocean to present you a 10-inch by Violence, from Quebec in Canada.

A few familiar faces are currently working on new material for
Electronic Emergencies. Among them, a 12-inch by fellow Rotterdammer Machinegewehr, and albums by our
beloved duo Peine Perdue from
Paris/Berlin, and by electropunk vandalists Venderstrooik, who earlier featured
on The Closet Tapes.
Meanwhile, Spacemaker and Leather E are busy compiling an album with
our Swedish musical friends. This compilation embraces industrial
sounds, EBM, acid vibes and synthwave. The first names of bands
contributing to the Swedish compilation will be announced soon!
And, of course, many other exciting Electronic Emergencies will be
announced as the year unfolds! In the meantime, we send you a lot of
love (and music) from our cold and windy Rotterdam and wish you a happy
2018 with love, friendship, equality and solidarity.
