For the second Lentonia Records compilation "Planet Hurlante", we have gathered exclusively feminine artists from electro scenes hailing from 3 continents, synthwave, post punk, hi and lo-fi. In these destabilizing and undermining times, especially for female artists, these titles solidly prove and encourage the continued work of these nineteen projects. Pour la seconde édition de la compilation Planète Hurlante,

Lentonia Records a réuni des artistes exclusivement féminines de la scène electro, synthwave, post punk, hi et lo-fi. Par ces temps flous qui déstabilisent furtivement les acquis sociaux et les moyens culturels, ces 19 titres attestent et encouragent la démarche de production d’artistes actives, dans l’espace musical du XXI siècle.

Kp Transmition
« Lo-fi industrial, aggro illbient and intelligent noise»—these are the words Karina Kazaryan uses to describe her hazy, grainy and psychedelic compositions. Born in Georgia in 1988, she spent her whole childhood in and was heavily influenced by the darkest suburbs of Siberia's Omsk. Whether performing solo as KP Transmission or playing along with her sister Lucy and friend Diana in the noise band Fanny Kaplan, Karina's creative works sound murky and chaotic and contain a vague feeling of uneasiness. The visual component of KP Transmission is also very important: naive, unedited home videos filmed in one shot play a special role in constructive a narrative of «visual blues»"

To refine their sound Caro and Edu fetched parisian DJ and producer CHLOE THEVENIN, a real expert in turning raw elements into gold nuggets. Their first EP "APARECE EN SUENOS" released on french label Kill The Dj is a concentrate of wild energy, live act ferocity and sound experiments magnified by DJ CHLOE.

yula kasp

Yula Kasp
Yula Kasp was raised under the dregs of the communist regime in Warsaw and through the American Rock n'Roll rebellion, as a teen in Toronto. As an adult in Paris, her first project would be an homage to her grand-mother, Wanda Trampczynska, solely made up of her poems. It is where she also met Matias Aguayo from Comeme records, for whom she started making videos. Everybody will remember Rebolledo's Guerrero video. After the early pick up of the LEISURE by Mauricio Rebolledo for the A VERY NICE COMBINADO compilation of the Pachanga Boys, Pilooski produced the infused psychedelia of her ep « Ocean Blues », released on Kill the Dj in 2016 - a strange mixture of eighties wave tape music, folkish electronic voodoo, dubbed-up disco, her own mental poetry and extracts from Shelley or W.H Davies.
