he summer of 2021 is a time of new co-operation between Razgrom Music and the label Plonk from Sweden, which results in the simultaneous publication of two releases - the albums of DATAPOP and MASCHINE BRENNT.
Joacim Thenander from Stockholm has been a well-known person in the underground electronic music scene since the early nineties, when he was a member of the EBM / Industrial bands SYSTEMA THE AFFLICTION and CULTIVATED BIMBO (one of the founders of the EBM-movement in Scandinavia). Some time later he founded his own project MASCHINE BRENNT, which is more focused on creating minimalistic and analog-electronic sound-structures. MASCHINE BRENNT is one of the first projects on the label Plonk (DATAPOP, UNISONLAB, SECTOR ONE, KOSMONAUTE, etc.), which for many years has been promoting and cultivating the so-called “machine-pop” genre - minimalistic, but melodic, intelligent and elegant electronic music inspired by classic sounds of KRAFTWERK and other bands of the "Düsseldorf School".
However, the new MASCHINE BRENNT album "Puls", in addition to the obligatory for “machine-pop” analogue sound collages, vintage synthesizers and robo-vocoders, also includes many new and progressive musical elements that make the sound of the project even more complex and unique: energetic techno rhythms, EBM loops, unexpected rhythmic constructions. Many other artists only can envy the quality and depth of the MASCHINE BRENNT electronic sound - this is the highest level, top-class. /In stock: 20.02.2023/
