With cutting edge influences and immaculate production, Nigen is the latest act from the Netherlands to combine EDM with industrial in a forward-thinking, atmospheric package. Gaining notoriety on Soundcloud for being a prolific remix artist with interpretations of artists that vary from Kaskade to Wumpscut, Nigen also provided a standout official remix for SHIV-R on the “Eye of the Needle” remix release.
Now Nigen mastermind Niels Doe presents his debut original release, the 4-track EP “Monachopsis”. Trap breakdowns collapse into vocoded vocal dystopias, distortion and melody exchange dynamically and fluid tempos drive a bed of deep bass under a synthetic sky of trance lead patterns.
Mastered and released by Blind Mice Productions, “Monachopsis” will hit all digital stores on 26 September 2016.
Dutch melancholic electro artist Benjamin’sPlague continues to make his beautifully twisted mark on the musical map with a massive new single: “Elated”. The title-track is a collaboration with elegant industrial group SHIV-R and sees the vocalists of both acts trading verses over a bed of harsh percussion and lush piano, leading the listener through an opiate-induced synthetic labyrinth. The single also includes the new song “Devour” that showcases composer Benjamin Schoones’ masterful use of melody over a club-friendly soundset, and rounds out the total of 5 tracks with remixes from Massive Ego, Simon Carter and Benjamin Schoones’ side-project Noire Antidote.
Mixed and mastered by Blind Mice Productions, “Elated” is out now through all digital outlets.
Fuelled by distorted female vocals, contemporary electro beats and an atmosphere drenched in darkness, Asylum Sisters hit genres such as witch house, industrial and even metal on their way to achieving their personal sonic revolution.
The creative force behind the project - Caitlin Mary Cunningham and Martin Pike from Melbourne, Australia - don’t shy away from drawing from a wide range of sounds in order to deliver the emotional impact of their message and you will hear rapped vocals with politically charged lyrics, discordant guitars carrying an aggressive attitude and bitcrushed techno sequences mixed seamlessly along the way.
“A Faith Called You” is the sophomore EP from the group, featuring 7 new tracks and carrying the weight of a full album’s worth of dangerous ideas and musical innovation. Coming 1 July 2016 on Blind Mice Productions.
“All I hear from you is bitches and moans
All you get from me is rhythms and tones”
Flying in the face of the easily offended, Riotlegion returns with an EP that offers no safe spaces, no handwringing sentimentality and no fucking trigger warning! Bringing the emphasis back to what’s important - music - without wasted energy on social justice posturing, the EP is Seattle producer Michael Coultas’ most harsh and expressive work yet. From the electro groove of “All I Can Do” to the 220bpm aggression of “Adaptation to Circumstance”, the 5 new songs evolve across genres while retaining an industrial EBM bite.
Mixed and mastered by Blind Mice Productions and featuring a remix by Benjamin'sPlague, “Trigger Warning” drops on all digital outlets globally on June 2nd, 2016.

To follow up our latest album (late-2014’s “Wax Wings Will Burn”), we decided to create a remix album that featured track-for-track remixes by different artists. The result was our last release “On Blackened Wings”, released on a limited edition CD package by Infacted Recordings, which reached #1 on the DAC (German Alternative Charts) in August 2015. For this release, instead of choosing all the remix artists ourselves, we held a remix competition for the track “Eye of the Needle” and issued the remix kit to the public, offering the talented winner a slot on the official CD release. The results of the comp were amazing and we ended up with a huge amount of great remixes that just had to see the light of day. So here we are: we have chosen our favourite 13 remixes from the competition, as well as a few additional remixes we had up our sleeve, and now present this official digital-only self-release!
Given the sheer variety on this release, it makes for an engaging listen-through from start to end even with 13 versions of the same track. From Basszilla’s super contemporary electro-house banger, to Nigen’s trap-fusion, to Restriction 9’s slick frozen EBM to Valkrye X’s thumping psytrance pulse, this release showcases some great lesser-known names on the bleeding edge.
