Hi iam Chris and iam a big fan of UK/US Punk/New wave from the late 1970’s/early 1980’s also love the New Romantic stuff,Reggae from that peroid and then onto Old School Electro/Rap/House/Techno/Miami Bass and Washington Go-Go music of the 1980’s.
After buying a CD of yours from Sounds Of The Universe site iam shocked to find a whole new world of Synth-New Wave acts from my fav era of the late 1970’s/1980’s and never knew that many hidden gem’s of tunes are out there from the past.

I want to know about this stuff and wonder why i don’t see the term New Romantics used.

Hello,

I’m Paraphonique from Canada (I’m not so far from Montréal). Very happy to meet you too.

I’ve been collecting and playing synths for a certain while (but I’m mostly a bassplayer) and I’m into B-moves, obsolete technology & vintage videogames. Oh… I’m also learing soldering & basic electronics these days.

See you on the forum !

P-Pho

Hello everyone, I’m 1/2 and it’s nice to be here. Been a fan of synth noise ever since childhood (the very first “keyboard” I played was the Olympia typewriter, very percussive and it gave you words on paper in both, black and red smile

During the late 90s, I formed a duo with a friend - called Narrow. It lasted til 2009 when we self-released our final mini-album, ‘Nonsense of Adventure’ and the accompanying ‘Top of the Pops’ single (these can still be heard via myspace > http://www.myspace.com/narrowatd in their entirety)


German label (T)reue Um (T)reue kindly released a posthumous selection of our work in early 2010 - still available standard copies of the album, we called “From DIY With Love”. More information can be obtained via http://www.tutrur.com where there’s plenty more to discover from.

During Narrow days, I started experimenting as Umrijeti za strojem which is personally regarded sort of a manifesto rather than a ‘band’ or a ‘music project’. It was heavily motivated and inspired by a group of personal friends, whose music I admire enormously (Monofonik and Illegal Emotions in particular) plus legendary Yugoslavian groups - Beograd, Dorian Gray, Borghesia and Paraf.
UZS occasionally materialises in a 3” or 5” single form. For your evidence, feel more than welcome to give it all a listen (or two) at http://www.myspace.com/umrijetizastrojem or recently via http://www.umrijetizastrojem.bandcamp.com

After Narrow ceased their operation, in early 2009 I adopted a numeral phrase 1/2 (simbolically in a reference to continue recording alone), but it furtherly developed into sort-of concept with “partial” deliveries (either solo or participating in other projects - the latter you might be familiar with; Neither/Nor, formed with another friend and electronic music enthusiast - erehwoN (of Cable Bends Steel and X_trackT fame) who provides the music while I’m in charge of the vocals and lyrics. A split 7” single featuring Umrijeti za strojem (the original version of “Strana A” from UZS 2007 debut 3” single) and Neither/Nor (our very first recording called “Against”) is being released during late 2010 on Genetic Music. The single should still be available at http://www.geneticmusic.de, while more work in progress can also be heard via Neither/Nor’s myspace page > http://www.myspace.com/nnor

And as for my numeral ‘half’, feel welcome to drop by and listen to some currently self-released pieces on http://www.innumerals.bandcamp.com

I guess, that’ll be all for now… Thank you.

Hi, I’m Jonny and I live in London. Music collector and electrical engineer. I love any music that someone’s put their heart and soul into, particularly into electronic music. I used to play records out a fair bit but not so bothered about that at the moment.

I put this mix up I made fairly recently here

I’m Max. Been living in North Carolina all my life.

I have been hella interested in these minimal wave records for sometime now.
I’ve always had records around, and I enjoy the stories that come along with any new record I get.

if there’s any other people in NC out there get at me!

I’m Arvo. I have a freeform radio show in Chicago and I mainly work with a Yamaha RM1X sequencer (believe it or not).

I joined this forum a while ago but never really remembered that I was accepted.  There was another forum a few months ago that uncharacteristically (I guess) had a thread about minimal wave, and I jumped all over it, along with only a few others.  So I decided to come back on here. 

I like Thomas Leer & Robert Rental, Esplendor Geometrico, Los Iniciados, Gorilla Aktiv, Der Plan, and etc. but I have been leaning more towards noise. 

Cheers!

Hey Everyone, I’m Josh.  I currently reside in Toronto, Canada.  I have a couple dj nights in the city. One of which focuses primarily on minimal/cold wave/synths which is pretty cool.  I write for a blog titled http://www.youlookdeath.ly, create mixes for http://www.thesupremecourtofcanada.tumblr.com and fuck around with a personal blog which is http://www.fragmentedmirrors.tumblr.com.

Hi everybody,

My name is Arthur, I’m from France. Founder of a collective of DJ and producers in Paris, DJing myself, I’m before all a music and vinyl lover. I like to listen various types of things from black metal to techno and minimal synth as long as it’s cold and a bit dark or sexy. Glad to speak with passionated people !

My name is Haley

I live in Cleveland, OH. I have a radio program on Cleveland State University’s radio station WCSB called “Pleasure Leftists” Thursday mornings 9a - 11am. I’ve gone from formatting italo, minimal wave, synth pop, new wave, new jack swing, and others to remixing all this stuff with audio from a feature film every week. Almost like you’re listening to an audio book. Films with the soundtracks replaced! You can listen online http://www.wcsb.org “listen online”.

  I also sing in this band here of the name “Pleasure Leftists” ... radio show came first. I enjoy writing songs, melodies and all that stuff. Really interesting vocals really sets apart electronic music for me. Although the band I’m in currently is barely in the genre of what I love the most.

  It’s really inspiring to have discovered minimal wave in the early days of doing my radio show. I related so much to that excitement of looking for new and interesting music I’d never heard previously for shows every week. Anything is new as long as it’s new to YOU. I love that idea. Breathing in new life. I’m so happy that all this recognition is being given to a corner of music that is often demeaned for being sterile and emotionless. Something I couldn’t think is more untrue.

So happy!

-Haley
