Elmapi Desido - LP
Lentonia 2018 The songs of Elmapi new album «Desido» (January 26th 2018) explores the notion of desire in an enigmatic way. Elmapi transports us into strange tales, between Dada song, Cold wave and post punk music.Born and raised in Corsica, her unique approach to music and towards her instruments come by way of the musical ambiance in her family- including the bass and drum beats emanating from her parent's nightclub she slept above.
Elmapi is an electro-pop alchemist. Sophisticated but also catchy her music keeps a dense and complex rhythmic line where the song seems to belong to another dimension.
kim ki o ZAN - LP
Lentonia 2017 Istanbul based bass and synth duo kim ki o has been creating dark-pop tunes since 2006. Their long-awaited fourth record “ZAN” (meaning “Suspicion” in Turkish) brings together 10 songs, that after constant recording between 2013-2017 evolved into a whole. “ZAN” is themed around thinking about “failure” in an attempt to recognize it and come to terms with it in many ways. It starts off with three young girls singing the Turkish version of ‘Flashdance... What a Feeling’ into the loud speakers of a mosque, after the imam has accidentally left the mic on. (This took place in 2015 in one of the southwestern cities in Turkey) And ends with a mourning dedicated to the pain of watching killings on street.
EDH SOS Spring - LP
Lentonia 2017 EDH offers a new playing field on her album "SOS Spring". Composed of percussions and electro sounds, rhythmic exploration agrees with synthetic melodies in layers. The bass, always very present, accompanies the singing, melodic and addictive with unusual presence and registers. A certain second degree, a mise en abime, interfered in these 11 pieces. Mutant dancefloor of these anxiogenic times punctuated by some dark and luminous ballads.

Cazzurillo - Greetings from Grinchland Lentonia / Cheap Satanism 2016 Greetings from Grinchland, CAZZURILLO ’s new album is dedicated to her hometown, Milan, fashion capital. She ironically renamed this "showcase city" as Grinchland. The eleven tracks on the album tell brief of life in her city of origin, the restless elite, the hysterical glamour. CAZZURILLO conveys her raw sense of exclusion and the solitude towards the careerism, the easy money and the hypocrisy of the golden city.
Judith Juillerat Screen door - EP
Judith Juillerat's new EP makes us travel in the depths of Asia, India and Indonesia. Original record video, sound track, ideas of genius, here is four unclassifiable pieces, between synthetic lace-like sounds and field recordings. Discovered by Björk at the beginning of 2005 during a remix contest of the piece " Army of me ", Judith Juillerat is spotted by T. Raumschmiere, founder of the label Shitkatapult, who invites her to participate on its own album " Pop Blitzkrieg " released on NovaMute. It follows the release on the Berlin label of her first amazing album, "Soliloquy".
Judith Juillerat Nooks & crannies - LP
Lentonia 2016 Judith finds her musical expression through improvisation and spontaneity, and she infuses her compositions with intuition and morals quite audibly. Listening to music is her daily food, she says, admitting a fondness for German cooking when she quotes bands like Can, Einstürzende Neubauten or Tarwater as sources of inspiration... as well as English legendary figures like Robert Wyatt or Coil... « Juillerat's primitive, noise-based compositions recall the early work of Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, and perhaps Einstürzende Neubauten. » (Tinymixtapes)

PERRINE EN MORCEAUX RIEN - LP Lentonia 2016
Somewhere between song-making and electro-concrete composition, PERRINE EN MORCEAUX is the solo project of French artist Perrine Bailleux. Structurally loop-based, her music both relies upon repetition, and resists it. She composes musical short segments, mostly from concrete sounds recordings and atonal noises, and plays them from unsync loop machines, while singing & playing keyboard or thumb piano [mbira]. A polyrythmical beat-based skeleton messed up with noisy layers and inhabited with omnipresent filtered singing plunges the audience into an overwhelming song experience.
Heather Celeste H. - Modern Death Lentonia / Anywave 2015
'Modern Death' consits of minimalist hallucinations, separated in space but strung tight with tension. From a complex rhythmic skeleton, Heather develops evolving textures and lyrics, filling out the narrative arcs. Listening, we dive into streams of consciousness, guided by her distant voice - between singspeak and ethereal singing - which rises over whirlwinds of arpeggiators, wisps of disturbing basses, disrupted by extreme percussions.

Elmapi CIRCE - EP Lentonia 2015
Les chansons d'Elmapi se présentent comme des films à la narration évolutive et à l'imaginaire opaque et abstrait. En nous présentant quelques uns des personnages obscures et mystiques qui hantent son esprit, Elmapi nous transporte dans des contes étranges, tel «Circé» où encore le monde suspendu de «a-d-o». Sophistiqué et romantique ce EP garde une ligne rythmique dense et complexe là où le chant semble appartenir à une autre dimension.
EDH Lava Club - LP Lentonia 2014
EDH's music develops a radical electronic sound with extreme drum rhythms and prepared electric guitars. Her unique style and unmistakably deep voice fluctuates precisely and rhythmically, cutting-up the English language along the way. “Lava Club” is a collection of dance tracks come from the dark sonic netherworlds inhabited by Kraftwerk and DMX Krew. Its trance-like compositions provide an amazing new experience for solo listeners out on a sonic foray. But they also accompany any congregation effortlessly into another aural dimension.

Hypo & EDH Xin - LP Lentonia 2013

Video Love Mon Ange - LP Lentonia 2011
Mélodies en mouvement soufflant dans les fougères d’un paysage à la fois lunaire et incandescent, les images glissent sur les arrangements pop. Ambiances obscures des films de genres et couleurs martiennes, textes en forme d’énigmes poétiques … Un album qui démontre que rien n’est définitif, et qu’il est toujours possible de passer au delà de la ligne « conformité pop ». Un album qui démontre aussi que Video Love est un duo de goût.
Unison - LP Lentonia 2011 For their first album, Unison members Julien Camarena and Melanie Moran have conjured up a highly unique music, made of dark layered sounds that pulsate their way through waking dreams. They have hit a strange and powerful sonic vein that connects them to a secret place deep in France's electrified soul. Unrelenting beats and waves of guitar tracks by Camarena are met by the siren-like voice of Moran, irresistably calling out from this haunted whirlwind.
Unison - EP Lentonia 2011 Our love is from another planet and we are going home right now

EDH Prédature - LP Lentonia 2010 EDH's first full length release comes from the outer reaches of synthetic pop, from the same sonic netherworlds as Kraftwerk or DMX Krew. In her recordings or during her performances, Emmanuelle de Hericourt's layered vocalizing creates a "présence phantomatique", simultaneously rattling the ghost of French pop while leading one to imagine the Cocteau Twins being tortured by Aphex Twin.
A&E A&E - 7" Lentonia 2008 "A" for Andrew Sharpley (ex-Stock, Hausen, & Walkman, Dummy Run...), "E" for Emiko Ota (drummer for Mami Chan Band and innumerable classic Tokyo punk outfits...). From this duo come four tracks ranging from driving electro-cut-up (Machine) to deconstructed muzak patchwork (Stoned Deaf).
EDH 7" - 7" Lentonia 2008 Emmanuelle de Héricourt aka EDH, based in Paris, composes a unique kind of synthetic pop.. She works principally with analogue synthesisers and her musique is light and somber at the same time, where ghostly crooning voices intertwine with references to the 1980s, and vocals that can both be fragile and disembodied.
ELMAPI Arcanes Electroniques - LP Lentonia 2006 The second album by this electro-pop alchemist is raw and driven. In her own words: "sounds from my kitchen mix with raw electronic stuff and my sweet voice from the shower".
ELMAPI Pop'up - LP Lentonia 2006 From the electronic womb of Paris appears this first electro-pop album by Elmapi. Her rare fusing of sounds and her voice make "POP'UP" a retro-futurist innovation.

EDH New York Tracks - LPs Matte Black Editons 2009 "New York Tracks is like a rough lonely path, a slow and careful progression with a weak flashlight towards trenches where madness is never far away. The album is a long and winding road, crossing lands of ashes where abstractions become oases. In this sonic world, we percieve at times the ghost of Nico, the specter of “Geek The Girl” from Lisa Germano and the darkness of “Pornography” from the Cure."
James June Schneider 1,2,3 Whiteout - DVD+CD "Veronique (a striking role by Karine Adrover) undergoes a series of scientific experiments in an old-fashioned kind of future. The experiments are performed by an inventor who is played like a modern Dr Mabuse by cult actor Lou Castel (who has played unforgettable roles in films by Philippe Garrel and Bertrand Bonello). Alongside feature fragments, the film also comprises various kinds of vignettes and archive footage.
Additional music CD by: Michael J. Schumacher, Elmapi, AE (Andrew Sharpley and Emiko Ota), and Richard Harrison.
